Buddy worships at Holly’s feet
He obeys her every command
He licks her dry when she gets caught in the rain or after a bath
Holly rules the entire household 🙂

    Such darlings! The expression on the one on the left is so much like Cody’s!

    By the way – which is Buddy and which is Holly?

  2. Buddy is on the left with he head resting on Holly and Holly is on the right. He is the typical tri-color and she is just more tan and white with a touch of black shading. Almost like a shadow on her shoulders. Buddy is the one that has such great “puppy dog eyes”. Holly’s eyes are more slanted – like a geisha girl’s rimmed in black eye liner !

    What a pretty pair!!!!
    They are both beauties!!!

    Could they BE any cuter?? How adorable. I’d climb right back into bed and snuggle. 🙂

    Beautiful and sweet dogs! Too funny that Holly rules the house.

    Buddy definitely has “the look” down pat! No food would be safe after I got those eyes aimed at me. Holly has eyes like Gigi, same little Geisha look which is so very pretty.

    What a pair of beauties!

    I really like seeing everyone’s dogs. This was a great idea Laurie.

    It’s no surprise to this household that Holly rules the roost. We have 2 beagle girls that are in-your-face, I-make-the-rules attitude all the time. One of our boys blends into the woodwork to avoid confrontation, the other boy ignores them and does his own thing. The Doberman says “whatever”. Girl beagles seem to be manipulative (sometimes in a nice way) and bossy. My Shelby2 is the same basic coloring as Holly–right down to the little bit of black on her back.

    • How do your two girls get along together ? When we went to adopt another beagle so that Buddy could have a friend, Linda at SOS Beagle said that she has found that a boy and another boy seem to get along, and a boy and a girl also do well, but when you try to have a girl and bring in another girl – things may not be so great. We had a couple of boys and girls to choose from, but Buddy seemed to like her – even though she right bossy right off the bat. We liked the idea of a girl and boyfriend situation. Buddy is very non confrontational. He just does what ever she says. We try to feed them together, but if we don’t stand right there and watch- she will push him out of the way and eat his food first, and he just lets her. If she sees us watching, she usually behaves. Same thing with treats. We should have named her ” Miss Piggy”

        The 2 girls get along ok, I think because a) Sugar was in the family before Shelby2 came along. Sugar has ALWAYS been very self-confident and secure in her place. When she first came into the yard, she even got into the dober’s face. Fortunately, Saleen is a very patient, calm soul and allowed Sugar to live. b)Shelby2 came into the family as a puppy and Sugar set her straight from the get-go. Shelby is confident and bossy, but she bows down to Sugar. I’ve never had a fight between those 2, but when Shelby Louise and Sophie Jean (our 1st 2 beagle girls) were young, boy, howdy, did we have sisterly fights.

      When the time comes to bring a second dog into our home again (and that time will come), I wouldn’t even think of bringing another girl beagle in to live with Josie. She’s definitely HRH Princess Josie Beagle of North Wilmington (more of a dowager princess, with a bit of a Queen Victoria thing going on). She’s not in-your-face, but she does have very strong opinions, and I think she’d butt heads with another female. She’d need a laid back boy dog who doesn’t mind if she’s not interested in playing or snuggling. We’ll obviously never replace Jordan, but it would have to be another dog of similar demeanor to fit in with all of us.

    • Amy~Cobalt & Onyx's mom said

      It wasn’t a surprise to me either that Holly rules the house. Onyx rules our house. If she had been the first dog, she probably would have been the only one.

      As I watch her chase Cobalt around the house tonight, I will smile knowing many other beagle parents are in the same situation.

    So adorable. Little snuggle buddies 🙂

    • Kate (Kramer and Gandolf's Mom) said

      Hi Libby and Emily’s mom! Can’t wait till I get my snuggle on with your girls! 🙂 Beagles really are the best snugglers.

  9. Sue ~ Barney , Jodi, & Huggy Bear's Mom said

    Love the picture! Jodi rules our house, but Barney is non-confrontational and avoids her at all costs. No snuggling together here. She and Huggy Bear are becoming good friends, but still no snuggling. 😦

    I agree, love seeing everyones dogs….Thanks Laurie

    I had the pleasure of meeting Buddy and Holly at the Beaglefest the Kramers hosted in May. Buddy is a little sweety, and Holly is most definitely a piece of work that will wrap you around her little dainty paw. And I do believe this is the wild woman leading one of the packs that was roaming the event throughout the day ….

    Same thing at our house: two beagle boys ruled somewhat benevolently by HRH Lily Tembo, Queen of all the Beagles, Imperial Potentate of Small Hounds, Empress of West San Jose, Perfect Master of All She Surveys.

    I never even considered getting another female; Lil would not easily share her duties as ruler of this patch of the universe.

    I was talking to my sister once about Lily’s uh, firm hand with the boys and my sis explained, “That’s why they call them bitches”.

    • Susan in DE said

      Oh boy, I’m going to have to work on expanding Josie’s royal title, hers pales by comparison to Lily’s. But I think you missed something, shouldn’t “Duchess of Loafshire” be in there somewhere? Josie had a bagpipe march tune written in her honor, “HRH Princess Josie Beagle’s Welcome to North Wilmington” (aka “Bechtel Park”, because that’s where we march … er, sniff’n’pee.)

      Slightly off topic, one of the coolest places ever is in San Jose, that would be the Winchester Mystery House (For those of you who don’t know about it, Google it and then be sure to visit if you’re ever in that area, you won’t regret it!).

      • harperlea said

        Love the “Loafshire” comment!!! 🙂
        I haven’t been to Winchester in decades, but yes a very cool place!!!
        Went several times during my grade school years….
        I wrote two responses earlier on my computer and it froze/ error messaged ARRRGGGG
        I’ll try to recap them in Tomorrows comments …. (sigh)

    What a gorgeous pair! They are SO adorable!

  13. Bobbie and Mark said

    Very, very cute our Dexter also loves his little sister Daisy.
    We also wanted to tell Elizabeth and family how sorry we are to hear of their beloved Jasmine passing away. Our Casey has been gone for 18 1/2 months and there isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t think about and miss our boy. Rest assured that Jasmine will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge.

  14. Sam and Sweetum's Mom said

    Wow what great companions!

  15. Karen S. said

    Very nice! My beagle/terrier girl, Daisy Mae, is definitely in charge here. But once I had 2 beagle girls (Winky and Holly) and a beagle boy (Figaro), and the girls were as sweet as could be. It was Figaro who did all the growling and fighting!

  16. Cody and Henry's aunt said

    Luana and I did a dog rescue Tuesday night – long story, which I won’t go into – the dog got back to her home Wed. morning. She was a female beagle mix, and she put the “Goofy Twins” in their place pretty quickly. I could tell Cody was trying to impress her and was totally in love by the time she left.

    • Susan in DE said

      A few years ago, we had a female beagle stay at our house for a few hours in between an adoption day event and when her foster mom could pick her up. When Josie saw her come in the house, she briefly sniffed her over, hopped up on the couch with a loud “Harrumph!”, turned her back and pretended to go to sleep. Jordan was completely smitten with chubby little Teena and would not get his nose out of her rump the whole time she was exploring our house, so it was like there was a beagle Love Train chugging around. But sure enough, when he tried to get very fresh with her, she told him what’s what and put him in his place.
