Calendar news (coins, too)

Posted by laurie on October 25, 2010

First off, many thanks for all your kind words in response to Friday’s “Blogger’s Block.” I love my audience, you’re all great!

Second, a big thanks to Joe O’D who recommended TD Bank for our coin-counting needs. I went on Saturday with four large bags of coins. There was no fee to use their counting machine, and when one of the tellers saw how many coins I had, he came over and expedited it. I took home $208.91! But be warned, the bank is going to start charging 6% if you’re not a customer.

Third, I’ve selected the photos for the calendar! I’ll show them to you soon. Phillip had a great idea and that is to put your beagles’ names (including last if you’d like) and ages on the days of their birthdays (or adoption days, or any other day you might prefer.) You can post this in the comments or email me at dd @

Finally, Stanley’s new hobby is to bring Phillip’s socks downstairs. Since dogs don’t think to move stuff that’s in their way (imagine how enriched their lives could be if they did) Sherman fell asleep with his daddy’s sock on his nose.

    I’m very excited about the calendar. If you have room to add a few more birthdays, Katie and Spencer were born on May 15, 2000. They’ll be 11 next year (and don’t act a day over 5. 🙂

    The photo is adorable! And I love the idea of birthdays. Trumbo’s is June 2, 2007. He’ll be four years old next June. Can’t believe my wild man is a big boy, but he seems to be regressing a bit (playing with dad’s shoes and tearing up envelopes).

    Official stats:
    Name:Trumbo Schiller
    Sex: Male
    DOB June 2, 2007
    Age as of 06.02.2011 4 years old

    TD bank is the best. The sole reason I continue to bank there is because they give out dog treats when you bring your dog with you. My girls start doing flips when I say “want to go to the bank?”

    That is a fabulous idea. Thanks for thinking of sharing with all of us like that. I’m looking forward to seeing the calendar. Our beagle, Bremner Wilkins, was born on October 7, 2000. He just hit the double digits, but is still as spry as ever.

    Jake will be 13 this Feb. 8th (2-8-98) and his lis sis Lily will be 4 on 5-6…what a birthdate…05-06-07 :)It makes it easy to remember 🙂

    Thanks Laurie, can’t wait to see the calendar!

    So Stanley is stealing socks? He must have a tad of terrier in him. My terrier/beagle Daily Mae steals all my socks and sneakers. When something goes missing I check her nest first.

  8. Deb said

    It looks like he is using it as a nose-warmer. During the cold weather my Alex used to bury his nose like that if he wasn’t all curled up and using his tail. Although sometimes he managed to do both…..

    My little girl Midgie opens our closet door and gets my socks.
    Booger’s birthday is July 18, 2002
    Midgie’s birthday is Feb. 19, 2010

    Can’t wait to get a calendar! Thanks Laurie.

  10. Spunky's Mom said

    This picture of Sherman is adorable! Spunky was a sock stealer as a puppy, but she stopped after a few years. Every once in awhile, though, the mood will strike and she’ll take off with my socks in hopes I’ll chase her.

    Spunky’s birthday (we think) is March 4, 2001….that’s as close as we could figure based on her first puppy visit vet records. I can’t believe my girl is going to be 10 in a few months!

    My baby girl LOVES laundry day because that means she can go curl up on the floor in mommy’s dirty clothes(eww). I always have to check to make sure the pile is beagle free before I go to throw it in the washing machine.

    Isis (DOB 7-11-08)

    P.S: Can’t wait to get my beagle boy calendar, have already picked the perfect spot to display it in the office.

    Our beagle/doxie mix, Merlin, used to take my work shoes out to the living room and roll all over them. None of our current dogs have a foot fetish.

    Daisy is 12. Her Gotcha day was Nov. 4, 2000.
    Shorty is 7. His Gotcha day was April 7, 2006.
    Hemi is 6. His Gotcha Day was in April 2007.

    They were all adopted from the local SPCA.

  13. Angela said

    Love the birthday idea! Thank you for including all your loyal readers and letting us be a part of your extended beagle family!

    Hard to believe my baby boy will be seven in 2011.

    Jodi Couts Gotcha Day 7/14
    Barney Couts Gotcha Day 10/25 Happy Day Mr. Barnyard!

    Both adopted from Houston Beagle & Hound Rescue!!

    What a great idea, Thanks Phillip.

  16. Scott and Scout said

    Here’s my idea. If one wants their dog acknowledged in the calendar then they pre-pay and send in the dates along with their payment before the cut-off date needed to print calender.

  17. Marty said

    Sorry somehow I fell out of the loop. I knew you were doing a calendar of the boys but I missed what the cost is and where to send the check. If you could include my guys that would be great – please let me know.

    Barney – 8/5/00
    Thelma Lou – 1/2/07

  18. Velva said

    Considering what a Daddy’s boy Sherman is, the sock was probably very comforting to him.

  19. Luana, Cody, and Henry said

    Cody was adopted from the Humane Society of Waupaca County, Wisconsin. He is about 2-1/2 years old. Henry was adopted from Eastshore Humane of Chilton, Wisconsin. He is about 9 years old.

    Cody’s Gotcha Day: 1/30/10 – Full name is Cody Jo Luther
    Henry’s Gotcha Day: 7/4/10 – Full name is Henry John Luther

    I love Philip’s idea of putting names and dates on the calendar. I will be sure to get two – one for home and one for my cubicle!

    Love the beagle birthday/gotcha day idea!

    Scooby Dygdala July 14, 1999

    Since I live in Canada, just wondering what payment options will be available. Credit card would be easiest, but I’m not sure if you will be set up for it. And would there be extra costs for shipping to Canada? (I would take 2 calendars though.)


  22. ClydesMom said

    My baby doll Clyde will be 12 on June 14, 2011. This is the day we adopted him.

  24. Joe O'D said


    Glad you liked the TD idea, and I’m happy to hear you got in before the “cut-off” date! I loved the “shout-out” and am sometimes surprised that you have time to read all of the email you get!

    My little guy Ryan O’D was born 4/3/02. Thanks for thinking of us! Best of luck to you, Phil and the boys!


  25. Amy said

    Can’t wait for the calendar to come out!

    If it’s not to late to include Roxy’s DOB: 04-27-2002

  26. ChristyACB said


    Boscoe would like to have his day commemorated. He is November 18th (2007). Gigi is September 15th. Both are last named Bryant!

    Thanks for thinking of that Laurie 🙂

    Christy, Boscoe and Gigi
