Terra and Petey

Posted by laurie on September 20, 2011

My 2 beagles Terra (on the right) and Petey are pretty interested in the outdoor wiener roast going on in my backyard! They are both rescue beagles and very gentle souls. Not too sure how old they are, but we think Terra is about 9 and Petey is about 10. After we adopted Petey in December of 2009 we found out he was deaf, but we taught him sign language (which Terra knows also). Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!

    Awww….just look at their faces! Gorgeous pair of goggies you have there. It looks like Terra has what we call “precision face licking” going on. 🙂

    Petey looks a lot like Jordan (see today’s other photo), Terra is more svelte than Josie, but otherwise that exact same picture could be taken at our house. What cuties!

    How cute!! They both look so interested in what is going on and who could blame them with hotdogs on the menu.

    I love stories when people adapt to their animals’ needs. We have a deaf cat, and have taught her a little sign language. You do what you need to, and they love you unconditionally. Beautiful picture, and they look like gentle souls. Love it.

    That is 100% concentration. Terra and Petey are adorable. This is so much fun, putting beagle faces with names. Feeling overwhelming beagle love.

    What a beautiful picture. Terra and Petey sure do look quite the couple and I’m sure from this picture they are as close as can be. Thanks for sharing!

    What a great picture! I think every beagle has his or her tongue sticking out to lick the air at a weiner roast! I watched a documentary on dogs being trained to sniff our cancer in people, and they used the example of people coming home and smelling pizza or spaghetti being made. But for dogs they smell the meat, the dough, the salt, the tomatoes, the basil, etc. all the ingredients individually. Then they compute all the scents and figure out it’s pizza or spaghetti and meat balls. It’s like smelling a whole symphony for them, note by note! I think smelling hot dogs has to be one of their favorites though!

    They are a lovely pair. I am especially taken with Terra’s ticking. It brings to mind my Shelby Louise beagle; she had a beautiful ticked necklace around her neck and chest. She was freckled all over, but it was the necklace that grabbed my heart.

    Is there a way to put “so cute” on each one of these photos?

    Thanks for all your wonderful comments everyone! They are both very dear to our family…Terra was found chained on a dog house in terrible condition but despite that is such a lovely girl. Petey was found as a stray and his tail never stops wagging! Because he is deaf he watches everyone closely to see what they are up to, but he especially watches Terra who leads him to all things edible!
