A relaxing (almost rainy) day here at B.C. Lawrenceville…

Posted by courtneayparsons on May 16, 2011

Greetings all! Lance, Maggie and I had a great time with the boys once again this weekend as Laurie and Phillip enjoyed an overnight trip to New Hope. It was a full and happy house with my in-laws, Bob & Loretta Parsons, in town for a couple days as well. As a faithful reader of the DD, Loretta was looking forward to meeting its two featured hounds…and the boys did not disappoint.

Sherman crafts a comfy nap spot in the pachysandra...

...reminding the rest of us that hard labor is for chumps.

Stanley and Maggie also look on at the weeding frenzy, but keep their distance. Maggie was content to lay in the yard. Stanley split his time between Maggie and the patio...when one of us would bend over to yank a weed, Stanley would race in to offer kisses and a distraction from silly chores.

    That’s equal parts hilarious and adorable!

    Great pictures, Courtneay!! They’re hilarious, but Sherman snoozing in the pachysandra is the best. Josie has all but killed what we have in our yard — she doesn’t snooze in it because it’s not in the sun, but she does pounce on it as if she wants to make her bed, so it’s pretty much shredded.

    Who else but Sherman? Such a silly boy.

    Thanks for the pictures. My yard doesn’t have much foliage, ‘nough said 🙂 Always good to have supervisors that are cute and hugable.

    I definitely believe Sherman has a “lock” on precious. My beagles, on the other hand, were at the other end of the spectrum this weekend. The 2 youngest ones sent a little bunny up to bunny heaven Saturday night. Scottie, aka Pirate, was the one responsible for the hit. Shelby2 had his back. The doberman was there to make sure nothing got away. Oh, well, they are rabbit dogs.

      Nancy, I have had to “catch” Lily from going out my front windows after a bunny! Twice now I have caught her by her hind quarters heading out the window. I now move her kennel in front of one window and have put a baby gate up infront of the other. Thankfully, the air conditioner will be on shortly and I won’t have to “beagle” proof the windows until November again! 🙂

      I hear you about the other end of the spectrum. Abbey pretty much was as sweet as ever. Elvis…he dashed by his daddy in a moment of abandon and ran around our neighborhood hiding from us for about an hour. When we found him (thanks to a phone call–good that the cell is listed on his tag!), he ran up to the car, jumped in the open door as if to say, “Hey, thanks for the ride! This was fun!” Many grey hairs and near heart attacks later, he’s back to being the “innocent” sweetheart. Yeah. We know the real story.

    LOL…Sherminator definitely does have a complete lock on preciousness. How cute can one dog be, I ask you? Apparently, there is no upper limit. It just makes me smile.

    Doesn’t that pic of Stanlicious and Maggie look like they are posing for their own wedding picture? A bit of a cougar, is Maggie. 🙂

    Sherman is too adorable. My Kramer lays like that in a little dirt hole when the sun is shining. Either there, or out front in the black mulch. Must be warm to him. 🙂

    These photos really did capture the essence of a wonderful day…at least as well as still photos can! (Good job, Court!) Sherman made himself comfortable in every situation; Maggie remained alert but unperturbed; and Stanley was always on the move. Humans, on the other hand, were really having more fun than it may seem…chumps that we are.

    Great pictures! But I have to say Sherman napping in the pachysandra is a priceless shot. Perfect for advertising how adorable beagles really are!

    Great pics!!

    Love the photo of Sherman in the pachysandra!

    I think that Sherman nap one is calendar worthy for sure!
