Our blind Beagles Billy and Owen love to wrestle with each other in contests that can go seemingly forever. In these BBWF (Blind Beagle Wrestling Federation) sanctioned events, it's always hard to tell who really wins -- but certainly a good time was had by all. In the photo at top, Billy has Owen by his throat on the ground.
Although a second later, Owen now has Billy by the throat:
I think Billy was about to smack Owen with his right paw but the action was happening so fast I never did see how he finished this move:
In this next shot I think -- but am not sure -- they are each trying to go for the other's neck:
We call this move the "submariner" -- nothing more effective than coming up underneath your opponent:
Unless, of course, Billy was actually demonstrating an airborne assault by landing on top of Billy. Like I said, it's just a wee bit hard to figure out exactly what our gladiators are doing at any particular moment.
But this one is clearly the classic sumo wrestling position:
There are no rules in the BBWF, which is why grabbing your opponent by the dangling ear is always a sure winner:
Really, watching these two go at it like this, you'd never have any idea neither one of them can see a thing.
