This is Josie from 2009. I call this photo, “HRH Princess Josie Beagle of North Wilmington, on her throne.” Rob calls this photo “$200 dog on $1200 chair.”

    What a great picture, Susan.
    HRH for certain 🙂

    There’s only one piece of furniture that is ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN to the fur babies in our home… An antique settee (Eastlake) that’s been in my family for a few generations and made the trip from Illinois to California….

      I’m thinking now that the caption for this photo should really be a thought bubble over Josie’s head that says, “What, no more turkey?? Off with their heads!!”

  2. Susan in DE said

    Yeah, that Josie is a piece of work. One night last week, she insisted I pet her for about half an hour. You know how it goes … when you stop you get the snoot or the paw, or both. I was scrubbing her ears and said, “Dawg, you sure did win the beagle lottery when we adopted you,” and husband Rob immediately responded in his Josie voice, “No, YOU won the beagle lottery!”

      LOL. Yeah i know what you mean, that’s Bartles to a T… He leaped up on my legs this morning climbed on my chest and stuck his snout in my face “Good Morning!” I was still in bed and slightly asleep at the time…
      He will also DEMAND loves/pats and attention… Such a goofball .

        Postscript Bartles weighing in at 60 lbs and Basset heft isn’t like having a sweet (light) beagle land on you 🙂

      • Susan in DE said

        Josie’s a jumbo beagle at 38 lbs and about 16″ at the shoulder. Not a basset, but not a lightweight either.

      • Harper said

        Susan, you’re right, of course, 38 lbs and 16″ isn’t a basset, but DEFINITELY not a lightweight 🙂

        heck at 38 lbs, that’s almost a bag of dog food 🙂

    I LOVE this. HRH…is the cutest caption! What a sweet, sweet face.

  4. Darlene said

    She looks pretty happy there…like it was made just for her!

  5. Sue-Barney, Jodi and Huggy Bear's Mom said

    Love both of the captions! HRH for certain, but rightly so, look at that face 🙂

    I miss my babies I’m visiting my brother in Pa. Will be home tomorrow.

  7. Amy~Cobalt & Onyx's Mom said

    HRH… very appropriate!

    We used to call our beloved, now deceased, beagle Chloe, Clobertus Maximus, Beagle Supreme. Josie is a supreme beagle too.

  9. Sam and Sweetums' Mom said

    We have a loveseat and sofa with multiple pillows which hubbie piles onto the loveseat. Our beagles love to perch upon them and it reminds me of the princess and the pea!!

    This is such a great pic! Love the $200 dog, love the $1200 chair.

    I just made a cushion (and pillows, of course) for our window seat, just so the dogs – mostly Lily – can have a comfortable spot to watch the world go by and howl at the dog across the street. It took a LOT of work because I insisted that it look good AND be washable (duh). My husband just shook his head and muttered something about “lucky” and “beagles” and “crazy dog lady”.

    Beautiful girl! Josie looks quite content on her fancy chaise. Quite the pampered princess! Our babies are worth it. 🙂

  12. Julie - JB & Cassie's Mum in England said

    What a coincidence – we have HRH Cassie of Derby, who regularly drapes herself all over a £1,000 leather sofa ………….. !! And His Lordship JB of Derby too of course, who taught the Princess everything she knows!

    • Harper said

      “drapes herself all over a leather sofa….” I can just picture that…

      I think I may start calling JD Lab-Boy “His Lordship JD”… and maybe Bartles should be the court jester… no wait, I meant His Dukeship the Bartles 🙂

    Josie is a pampered darling! I, too, love the “$200 dog, $1200 chair” comment!

  14. Love this photo. This is late for east coasters, but I just finished dinner and now throwing The Ball For The Oscar.

    My husband is a photographer and when he saw this photo he said it was very nice. Thanks Susan.

  15. Jacqui said

    Love it! All she needs is her tiara but she is a regal beagle without it!

  16. Gunner and Bailey's mom Anne said

    They are truly Regal Beagles. Bailey sometimes takes her Cleopatra pose on the armrest of the couch too. Josie is a true queen. Happy thanksgiving!
