This page is dedicated to Bev Cross who has done more for beagling than anyone I know. She
is a legend among beaglers. You ask anyone in beagling who Bev is and they can tell you. Bev
is admired, respected, and probably one of the most unappreciated in the beagling world. She
has run hounds and has probably qualified to judge in almost any format. She is a true beagler
who loves watching the hounds run whether it be fox, hare, cottontail, or coyote. Bev developed
one of the most popular beagle magazines "The American Beagler". She was the owner and
editor for several years. Bev also started "The North American Beagle" which is a beagle
breeder's handbook and is also the owner of Freedom Run Kennel. She owns and moderates
the most popular beagle board on the internet.(TAB) Bev may never make it to the Hall Of
Fame but what she has done just as much for beagling as many of the Hall of Fame beaglers.
Bev you are a CHAMPION in your own right and nothing or nobody can ever take that away
from you. Thank you for all that you have done. I am honored to call you my friend.
