A loss, a Tag and an award

Our friend, Buddy, passed this week. We will miss him a lot. Please stop by and give his mom and his sister Lily some hugs.

Kess picked us to show a photo.

This game has the following rules:
1) open the folder that has your pet pics in it
2) choose one you haven't posted before
3) tell its story
4) tag 5 friends (most of our friends have done this already!)

My mom has never posted this picture before. This shows you how she feeds us. She throws it out on the ground like we are CHICKENS! It's humiliating. But, being beagles who live for food--we don't refuse and we actually enjoy the hunt. No, she doesn't really feed us that way. Eh, she made me type that.

My mom also wants me to apologize to my chihuahua friends for calling the puppies biteyface rats. Well, I am sorry to have offended but I would call ANY puppy a biteyface rat so I am not being breedist. My mom really likes these little beasts (who might be going to new homes as soon as next week).

I got this award from Daisy the pink pitbull.-- created by her artsy friend The Purple Hatter. Thanks, Daisy! I grumble a lot about all these rescues but I'm really okay with it. Esp. since I was once one.

Meet my new cousin, SHILOH. She will be living with my mom's brother and his white German shepherd, Cesar. She's only 6 weeks old.

We had a quiet weekend. My mom almost helped transport a brittany boy but it was cancelled--he will go again another time. Instead she stayed home with us and played and worked on the Flying Monkeys. She really needs to think up a better title for that novel...


I hope you all have a good week!

Waterbowl tales

It is a beautiful day in our neighborhood. Clear sky, low humidity. It makes my mom so happy she is out dancing on the lawn with all the crazy creatures.

She traveled to the big city and came back with SEVEN doggies. Six are babies--she thinks chihuahua/terrier--and one is the mama. They are very skinny. The people who rescued them could not afford to feed them so the black lab rescue took them.



They are old enough to be fixed (and have been) but my mom's hand is bigger than 2 of their heads!!

I'm not pleased with this bunch. They are like six little biteyface rats. I still have Maisy and Bella for another week and with this nice weather I'm out running with them.

Here they are drinking water. I mean, big deal. They will be going to Kim's Foster Dogs up north pretty soon.

Meanwhile, I'm staying outside in the sun with my girls.

It's nice to be good

We have a new camera! My mom got a Nikon coolpix on sale at Wal-Mart. One day, she says, we will have a Nikon SLR. I don't know what that is.

Bella, who is very tiny, no more than 15 lbs. You can barely see her spotted toes. She has long skinny toes like Summer.

Here my mom is telling me to go out in the yard and play with the puppies. Usually I won't do it but I like these two girls.

Here we are having fun.


It's hard work being a good boy.

Some new pics from a crummy camera

Here is Bella. Princess Eva suggested the name and my mom loved it--even though we have our own Belle here. My mom says Bella like an Italian: Behllllla.

She's looking at Baby here.

She's trying to talk but we're making so
much noise I can't hear her.

My mom is faking her out with some pretend food.

But I know it's on the floor!
Here I am. I think I look pretty good even with this cheapy camera! Good grief, look at Davoo's red devil eyes! That camera must have a Twilight Zone setting...

Sunday relaxing

Well, my mom borrowed a camera. The pictures are on the camera but not on the card. She only has a card reader not a camera cable (her friend lost hers). Does this make sense? It means we still can't see any pictures.

My mom looked at new cameras. We will get a new one this week.

My friend
Daisy the pink pitbull lost her brother, Sprocket, today. Please stop by and send them some love. He was a good, happy little boy.

It was very hot today. 100 degrees. So my mom let us run around in the yard in the morning but we all took a nap in the afternoon.

The new puppies are good dogs. My mom named the big girl, Maisy, after a famous mouse (eh???) and can't think of a name for the other puppy. She looks like a black viszla mixed with dalmatian. She is a timid girl but is improving the longer she is here. I am helping keep the puppies on their toes by howling at them. They don't seem to believe me when I say, go lie down on the couch now! We were supposed to get six more puppies today but nobody called so we just relaxed. Boring for a blog but unusual and nice for all of us!

Have a good week everybody. I think my mom will be taking pictures again this week so I'll have my handsome self back on the web again!

No camera--updated

(old photo)
My mom is very annoyed. She has not found the camera. She agrees with the Dughallmor beagles that AFTER she buys a new one she will find it. Otherwise, we have to think the worst of human beings, that they stole it from her suitcase. You do not want to annoy my mom!!

To trick the universe, she is going to buy a cheap one time use...

We have a little labragurl to foster now named Maisy. She is wild and smart and sweet. Mousse loves to run in the yard with her. And this weekend we will rescue 6 puppies from a bad place.

Tonight she is transporting a beagle named Peaches sponsored by SOS Beagles and Luke the English Setter sponsored by Above and Beyond English Setter Rescue. She tries to do transports early or late in the day because we still have no AC in the car! She will post pictures if we get some.
Updated:
My mom went to lunch with a rescue buddy and then they went to Wal-Mart. Guess what she brought home?? Well, not to our home but to one of our puppymeister people. A family had 'free puppies' in the barking lot--black lab puppies on the tarmac in the hot sun WITH NO WATER!! My mom swooped down and took them all. She and her friend drove fast to a place with a pool and put them in the water--the puppies were so hot they wouldn't drink. The puppymeister has now taken over and will give them fluids. Mom says that lunch was too exciting. She thinks the puppies will be okay now. Oh, yeah, she borrowed a camera for the transport this evening.

Sunday

We are very sad to hear about Charlie going to the bridge. His last day was a happy one with his family. We are thinking of them.

My Mom is also sad because she still has not found the camera. She's hopes it was not stolen out of her suitcase and that it's just a case of her being the usual space cadet. She will look around a few more days then will have to get a new one.

The Brittany transport went perfectly. My mom had one boy named Marshall. The transport went through Va picking up 2 more Brittanys. All will end up in Vermont today, she thinks. One of the drivers promised to send pictures so we will post them when they come in. Update: got a picture of Marshall. My mom is holding him for the picture. Isn't he a handsome boy? He looks like he has a chocolate milk mustache...

It was very dry in Milwaukee--they are in a terrible drought. But it made for a very nice vacation for my mom--sunny, low humidity. They visited Taliesin, the S.C. Johnson factory and Wingspread. All places she said I would love to live--lots of floors to run around on and lots of yard. The best thing was the day they spent at the airshow and got to see the Thunderbirds. I like to bark at birds but thunder scares Bitey and Summer here, not me, I'm pretty brave. My mom played with her brother's dog Cesar. He is a big white german sheperd. Very friendly, silly guy, she says, whose favorite toy is Mr. Chicken. Just tell him to get Mr. Chicken and he does!

Today we are enjoying the sunny weather--it was raining this morning--and being with my mom. She is working on her latest novel now with no name.
