Lame beagle

My 8 yo beagle started limping on right hind leg suddenly but it got better after a couple of weeks.  Now he is suddenly limping on left and barely able to stand.  HELP!

This could be any of a number of things. Symptoms of arthritis can come and go...or this could be a tick-borne illness...? Or it could simply be that he had a strain in that right leg, and muscles and tendons in the left over-compensated for that weakness, causing some upset there which showed up later. That is quite common.
I would definitely take him to your vet, and have some tests done, and X-rays if indicated.
