Snacks are now served on the Lido Deck

Posted by laurie on October 18, 2011

Phillip wants me to ask when you check the DD. He says, “I check it when I am stressed at work. It’s my micro vacation.” Hmmm. Not a surprise that he has daily stress at work. Okay, how about you?

    I check every morning when I get to work. It’s how I start my day.

    Love the attentive poses of the boys, particularly how polite little Stan is. πŸ™‚

    I check it first thing. I usually come into a a flooded inbox (it stinks to be military AND the weather officer on a big staff) and ths helps me keep it all in perspective.

    When stressed, I usually hop back on to see the comments. Sometimes more than once depending on the picture, the comments and what’s going on with everyone.

    Morning, first thing. And several times during the day to see if there are new comments.

    I check it first thing in the morning (California time it’s typically 5:00-5:30 am)… Then I check back periodically during the day to read the comments.

    Everyones thoughts, prayers, and comments helped me get through last Friday. Was glad to read about little Ruby and tackling the dog door flap down this morning…
    Way to go!

    First thing in the morning. Gotta get my Kramer clan fix!

  6. Spunky's Mom said

    Sometimes at work, when I don’t feel like working and need to see some sweet beagles. This has been dangerous (crying at my desk), however, when there have been posts of not-so-good news. For sure I check when I get home if I haven’t had a chance at work.

  7. Joan said

    I look at it very morning when I get to work. I check the DD and Dog of the
    For me it can be tricky too. I cry whenever I read that someone’s beagle has passed away or is gravely ill.

  8. Amber said

    First thing when I get to work. It’s my daily smile before I realize I’m in hell πŸ™‚

  9. Mindy said

    I check every day at work, usually after I’ve done a bit of work and need a happy break!

  10. Rebecca Campbell said

    I look at the DD before we open the doors to the public. It helps me greet the public with a smile.

  11. Kramer and Gandolf's mom said

    At home, with a cup of coffee, during my 1/2 hour of quiet before I go to work.
    Love it. It’s the first site I visit.

    • Martha M said

      That’s exactly when I look in. I can’t get the pictures at school–blocked because it’s a blog. Stupid elementary school rules!

  12. Ted said

    Am I the only male to read the DD? Anyway, I check first thing in the morning with coffee. Then I take my Beagle for a walk.

  13. Baci's mom said

    Second thing at work. First I check email, then the DD (so at 8:05 a.m.). Okay, sometimes I start with my beagle fix, then the email. When we got new computers a couple of years back, I forgot to save my links. Yours was the first one I put on the new one.

  14. I check in the morning to start my day off right. But sometimes things are busy and I don’t check until night and get the enjoyment of seeing handsome beagles. Thanks for sharing your beagles with us all!

  15. Elaine T said

    Me too. First thing I do when I get to work after I turn on my computer. Gets my day started on the right foot (or paw)!

  16. Libby and Emily's mom said

    After I pour my cup of coffee, when I first sit down at my desk to start work. Helps the day get off to a great start.

  17. I check it while everything is loading on my computer. then depending on the day I might check back later on but mostly I check the day before for new comments. It helps me not miss my two knuckleheads as much when I am at work.

  18. Ellen said

    In the mornings when I’m killing time before going into work.

  19. Nancy J said

    DD is my home page, so as soon as I connect to the Internet at work every day, your little family is the first thing I see. Honestly, it’s sort of being hooked on soap operas or something, because I am always anxious to see what the boys (or their human servants) are up to. I have to hit the Internet several times a day in my job, so I sneak a peak at the DD site and read the comments. And, yes, I have to close my office door if there is some bad news concerning any of our DD family.

    Ted, you are not the only male who reads the DD. My hubby does, too, but he has to wait until we get home. His job is crazy fast-paced and he isn’t able to check on the Kramers during the day.

  20. Luana, Cody, and Henry said

    I try to check in the morning on my home PC before I go to work. If I don’t have time, then I read it after I get to work. I look forward to it every weekday! (Wish there were new pics and stories on the weekends, too!)

  21. Steve said

    I go to DD as a reward for having replied to all of the emails in my inbox first thing in the morning.

  22. Lynne said

    I check it every morning as soon as I get to work. It gets me off to a good start and helps me be more ready to deal with the students when they come asking for help. It can be difficult when there is bad news on there.

  23. Jayne said

    Because of the time zone difference (I’m in Singapore), I’ll check on DD after dinner. That’s my blog reading/writing time. Then I’ll go to dreamland anticipating more beagles (including my Moo)!

  24. Christina said

    A friend in my Beagle group sent the link years ago, and a visit to the Daily Digital has been part of my week day morning routine ever since!

  25. Patty in San Jose said

    I check first thing when I get to work and periodically during the day to read the comments. I always feel better after I’ve checked on all the Kramers!

  26. Angela said

    I usually try to check it in the morning. It’s my “five minutes of happiness.” I just love following your boys! And I really enjoy reading everyone’s comments. It’s just a nice little community of beagle lovers.

    I must say, Stan is looking pretty trim and fit in this photo! Nice cinched-in waist. Stan’s the man!

  27. Cathy, Gomez & Lily said

    Heh. It’s the first place I go on the internet every morning. I get my coffee, take the laptop into my bedroom and go straight to the DD. When we were on our sailing vacation last month I checked in on my cell phone. Not the best DD experience, but I couldn’t go without it for a whole week!

  28. Kate H. said

    Like most of the above, it’s one of the first things I do with my first cup of coffee (I also go to the Click to Give site that provides food for shelters – do you all know about that? If it’s a particularly good one, I will revisit a couple of times throughout the day!

    • Luana, Cody, and Henry said

      Yes, the Animal Rescue Site is another site that I go to every day and click at least once.

    • Nancy J said

      Yes, I go to the Animal Rescue Site and They give out Halo dog food the the shelters.

    • Carol said

      Right after I get my daughter to school and take Eddy for his walk, I start my day with the Daily Digital, BOTW and The Animal Rescue Site. I usually check on the previous days comments to see if I missed anything….and if there is time I check back during the day. Yes, I’m addicted! Love Sherm and Stan and all of your beagles too!

  29. Kim Jackson said

    Every morning for years now, my husband Roy send me an email that says Good morning Sweetie!…with a link to today’s DD. On vacation – he pulls it up on his phone for us!

  30. Vivian said

    I check it at work. It takes me away from the stress, sometimes makes me laugh and reminds me of whats important in life.

    • Sue~Barney & Jodi's Mom said

      Exactly. I check back a couple of times a day. πŸ™‚ Wouldn’t miss it.

    • lois said

      Me too – it’s usually one of the first things I do when i get to work. If I don’t get my fix in the morning, I’ll get it sometime during the day. I’m not so good about checking when I’m home – after all, Sherry expects to get ALL of my attention when I’m home.

  31. Marci said

    I’m like most everyone else. I check out the DD first thing in the morning. It makes me smile and is a great beginning to my day. How can a beagle NOT make you smile?!

  32. Rita said

    I used to go there first thing after e-mail every morning but, while on vacation for a week, I discovered that it’s even better if I save them up for a few days. I don’t always have the discipline to do that but when I do it really rocks.

  33. Linda UK said

    Can’t get the fix first thing as the UK is 5 hours ahead, but always look as soon as it drops into my inbox! Couldn’t do without it πŸ™‚ Dylan always wants to know about his beagle pals ‘over the pond’ too!!!

  34. BookerMoose said

    I check it first thing in the morning from my BlackBerry before I even get out of bed! I also have it as my home page for the internet and therefore I see the boys again every time I log in during the day. I don’t usually have a chance to read the comments throughout the day as much as I would like to, or post comments – but I am definitely here every day.

    I do miss DD on the weekends, but realize that Laurie does need a break too! And sometimes a posting on the weekend is for a very sad reason, too – such as when Clayton passed away on Saturday after it seemed like he was getting better on Friday.

  35. Peggy said

    I usually check before lunch. Mornings are for getting Mom breakfast, then ready to face whatever the day offers. If Ginny is not home, I might check the DD after taking Miss Penny for a good walk. ( a tired Beagle is a good Beagle)

  36. Scooby's Mom said

    I usually check at work, in the morning. If I am busy at work, sometimes I don’t get to check till the afternoon. (Like today.) Usually I go back to read comments later in the day. And I also cry when I read about beagles passing away. Everyone at work is used to it though. They’ll just ask, “Beagles?” and I nod in tears.

    BOTW is my homepage at home on our 2 computers, and saved on “favorites” on our 2 work computers. I also check out


  37. Carol Lee Cherry said

    I check it before I start teaching. Often I will call my hubby at work to ask if he has seen it especially if it reminds us of our 2!!

  38. Julie in Derby, England said

    I always look at it when I’m having my lunch at work and it always cheers me!!

  39. Anne said

    Since this is post #39 one day later I usually check at the end of my day at home for that ahhhh moment of pure relaxation. Sometimes I sneak a peek while at work when I really need a pick-me-up but I do have the DD calendar proudly displayed for all to ooo and aaaa.

  40. Dee said

    Before I go to work. (Not allowed to peek during work hours!)
