We’ll send an SOS to the world

Posted by laurie on July 18, 2012

A huge thanks and hugs to Kate for describing what she and her husband did for their other pets after Kramer died. Many others shared their own stories, and they’re all lovely. Read for yourself in yesterday’s comments. We had Clayton, Spenser and Scooter all cremated and their ashes are in beautiful wooden boxes on our mantle. We feel good knowing they’re there.

On a happy note…I got home on Monday and there were no beagles at the door to greet me. How unusual! I did a quick look around the yard and called Stanley but no one came. I checked to see if their harnesses were there because if not, Phillip had taken them for a walk. They were in the kitchen. So I went upstairs and opened the bedroom door and two beagles FLEW out of the room. Such excitement! On hot days we keep the bedroom door closed to trap the air conditioning inside. There is a doggy door in the bedroom door, which usually is open, but on Monday it had the sliding panel in which trapped the boys inside. When he got home, Phillip felt terrible (he leaves after me and was thus technically responsible) and gave the boys extra treats. They were none the worse for wear and didn’t have any accidents or chew anything up. No doubt there are many dogs out there who would love to have a cool room to stay in during this awful heat.
