Look! Babies love bottle caps, too! This is baby Mia with her mom Rachel, my niece. (That makes Mia my great-niece.) She’s seven months old and as cute as a button. They live in Seattle but were in NYC last week so I got to visit.

What’s wrong with this picture? Not an evening glass of wine to go with a check of Facebook. Not Sherman in his usual perch. Not my super-cool hex-to-rgb mousepad. No, of course not! It’s the doggy bed and sofa pillow on the table. Why? Because a certain beagle enjoys nothing more than de-stuffing doggy beds and sofa pillows. I won’t even ask for advice on this one because I know there is none, except perhaps for “wait until he’s ten.” Am I right?

Yes indeed, we had a beaglefest on Saturday. Approximately 25 beagles (plus one hound and one dachshund). Everyone had a good time. We were a little worried that Stanley would freak out, but he only did when the first group of 4 beagles arrived, and after that he was absolutely fine.
UPDATE! The Clayton lookalike is Rowdy! Sorry Rowdy! Sorry Karen!

For over half our marriage I had to “remind” Phillip to get a haircut. He hated going to the barber, and his “too long” light came on way after mine. This made for a bit of a struggle. Until he discovered that one of the women he works with cuts hair on the side! So now SHE gets to “remind” him that it’s time for a cut. He grabs a hospital sheet and he has his hair cut in his office! I am completely out of the loop and that’s how I like it.

Stanley reminds me here of Clayton, who was far and away the best howler of them all. Stanley can be quite loud, and the other day when I was walking him on the canal, a group of about ten cyclists went zooming by on the road across from the canal, and they were, I guess, psyching themselves up, because they all started to yell which put Stanley promptly into overdrive, running and howling. It was hysterical.

Sherman has had a few other wildlife encounters recently including two with garden snakes in the yard. I know this because he stood and HOWLED nonstop until I came out and threw a stick at them. (I don’t think that snakes can hear. Neither seemed to notice the hoopla around him.) Remember Sherman’s encounter last year with the wasp? I will try to push the video camera into Phillip’s hands one of these days.
