BEIJING Kevin King Limited Jersey , Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- China is taking measures to control air pollution, including limiting vehicles on the road and suspending factory production, as smog persisted in many areas for days.

The National Meteorological Center (NMC) issued a yellow alert for smog on Sunday morning, the fourth straight day such an alert has been announced.

North China's Shijiazhuang, capital of Hebei Province, went on orange alert for smog, the second highest, early Sunday morning, and an emergency response initiated.

At a construction site on the north side of Xinhua East Road in Tongzhou District in Beijing, construction work has been suspended since Friday. Reporters could see no trucks with construction waste or bare earth at the site.

A worker said work had been halted after receiving the smog alert.

Barbecue stands near Beijing's Minzu University of China were advised to close by staff from the Beijing municipal bureau of environment protection, according to a vendor.

The city's road sweepers have also extended their working hours and frequencies since Thursday.

"Besides road sweeping, we've also increased road spraying and cleaning work." said Liu Yi, a driver of a sprinkler.

Physical education classes, outdoor exercise and sports meets at kindergartens, primary and high schools have also been called off. < According to the Ministry of Environmental Protection, almost all of north, east and central China are suffering. Beijing and the provinces of Hebei, Shanxi, Shandong, Henan and Liaoning reported severe smog.

The beagle is an oxymoronic dog. They rank fifth on the 2007 AKC list of breeds and yet have fallen off the top ten list in many cities, remaining third in Providence, R.I. There are good reasons this isn t a breed for everyone. More importantly, it s a breed that needs understanding.

The origin of the Beagle, like many hounds, can be blurred. Packs of hounds have long been used in England, dating to Roman times. Both sight and scent hounds were used and it s not uncommon to have hunted in packs. In the 1800s in the US small hounds called Beagles were used in the southern part of the country. They appeared more like a Dachshund or weak headed Basset, and were high endurance dogs without type. In the 1860s the English hounds were combined with these small dogs. In 1888 the Beagle club was formed and began holding trials. Two types one under 13 inches and one that was 13 15 inches.

From a show dog standpoint they are competitive but have not been changed as much as some other breeds. Perhaps it s the hound stubborn of the beagle that refuses to change.

These dogs need understanding on several fronts. Their size is a small dog but their nature is a hound through and through. The Beagle bawl is unlike any other small dog their function as a hunting dog has instilled a unique bay that carries. This is, perhaps, a reason they have fallen in favor in cities their willingness to give voice is not encouraged in urban areas! Furthermore, there has been an increase in the Puggle a crossbred of the Beagle and Pug in many of these city areas.

This tendency can be tempered in hounds but not truly erased. They are what they are. They have flaws but for those who are willing to make an effort, have the patience for training and are looking for an awesome small dog...give the Beagle another look!

These are incredible small dogs. They are very intelligent, although like many hounds, shoul.
