But where’s the lobster?

Posted by laurie on July 6, 2012

Uncle Bob and Aunt Nancy came over on the 4th for a lobster dinner. I also made this great orzo dish, which I might have recommended before but it bears repeating. Bring it as a side dish to a party and everyone will love you. I kept offering one of those dog hair roller removers to Nancy but she didn’t care.

Yup, that’s Uncle Bob with STANLEY! Trying to keep him from licking his entire face off.

    We love them loving us, don’t we?

    Got my new foster, he is a Bassadore (Basset/Labrador mix) Ely. Very sweet.
    Have a good weekend everyone! Thanks to Laurie for the all the pics & hard work, we so enjoy them.

    Great pictures once again, Laurie! And nice to finally meet “Aunt Nancy”. :->

    Amy, how are Cobalt and Onyx doing?

    Looks like Aunt Nancy has some of Uncle Bob’s “magic”!!! Great pictures. And everyone knows that anyone who loves dogs and is used to walking around with fur almost permanently stuck to their clothes will rarely use a dog hair roller… πŸ™‚ I would feel naked if I didn’t have fur stuck to my clothes ha ah ha.

    How are Cobalt & Onyx, Amy????

    And how’s Charlie, Christy?

    Shotzy the 67-pound German Shepard “puppy” crawled up on my lap in my lounge chair (and it’s not a big Laz-E-Boy either… fairly small by lounge standards) when the neighborhood started shooting off their (illegal) fireworks. The Lab goes nuts and just barks, but this is the first time Shotzy actually climbed INTO my lap and sat there quivering and drooling. I felt so bad. And I had even put DAP (Dog Appeasing Pheromone Spray) on bandannas for everyone… guess it wore off quicker than I expected. And when I went to bed, she followed me in and jumped up in the bed, situating herself up on the pillows at our heads… my poor darling husband… got woken up and couldn’t sleep very well with her quivers shaking the bed! I too slept poorly… but she flinally settled and I was buried by the Shepard and the Basset.
    I’m going to have to get some of that anti-anxiety medication. That might help Shotzes out next time…

    As for Beagles’ intelligence… I agree that it’s really their hard-headedness… Bartles the Basset is proving to be the same, but with a lot more “heft”… Whisky was smart as a whip, and Bartles is the same…
    Speaking of Bartles… he’s fine. Though he doesn’t seem to want to eat breakfast (out of routine)… but he mows down dinner; Not sure what’s up with that.. it varies from day to day,and all four (we still have Little Ol’ Lady Quincy) sometimes eat and sometimes don’t.

    Hope all are safe and healthy this weekend!

    Thank you guys for asking about Cobalt & Onyx. Cobalt came home last night to stay, he didn’t have to go back to the vet. He is once again begging for food- always a good sign with a beagle. πŸ˜‰ He is not getting the people food he previously did, so that has him mad. Erich was always worse than me about giving in to them, and he vows after this week that he will not do that any more.

    Onyx finally took an interest in her kibble yesterday. I came home tonight to much arooing, and beagles climbing over each other to get pets from me– very much like their normal selves. Onyx still has a follow up appointment Monday with the vet.

    Thank you all for the caring, concern, and support. I really feel like you’re all just part of the family!

      I’m so glad to hear the good news, Amy! It’s true – when beagles are eating and behaving like their normal selves it is always very reassuring.

      I learned from our first beagle, Bogie, how dangerous it can be to feed beagles (or any dogs) people food. He became terribly overweight and never lost the extra pounds. I am now VERY careful about the food and treats I give Cody and Henry.
