It’s almost Christmas so it’s time to hear about the cranberry pistachio biscotti. I’ve made four batches so far, another four to go. This is about half of a batch. I think Phillip ate the rest.


No, Stanley didn’t eat any, but he did get to clean off the cutting board.

I’m going to take off all next week and return on Wednesday, January 2. But if you get any good festive photos of your beagle(s), send them along and I’ll post them. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

    I echo the above, what else can I say. I look forward to checking this site daily. It amazes me how diferent the Beagles all are (physically) but how much they are all alike. Thanks again Lauie, Phillip, Stan & Shermy for a wonderful year. Have a safe holiday and a wonderful new year.

    I, too, can only echo the sentiments expressed above. Seeing the Daily Digital every day is something I look forward to, along with the stories from Laurie and all the rest of the DD family. Best wishes to all for a happy, peaceful, and magical holiday season!

    Thank you and have wonderful Holidays too! I cried all week with the Sandy Hook and Telsha stories but Beasley made it all better! Here is to a 2013 with less tragedy and more cute puppies! You are a great group too!

    Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Boxing Day, and Happy New Year to all!
    Thank you Laurie, Phillip, Sherman & Stanley for another wonderful DD year…

    Susan, I tried “thumping” the bump on Bartles’ noggin this morning… I FINALLY found the “snooze button” (actually, I let him drag the covers off my shoulders, and then rubbed his little pointy head… he just wanted snuggles!)
    Didn’t have a chance to reply yesterday, but thought the comments were hilarious….
    And here I always thought that was their “bump of knowledge”…. (at least that’s what my Mom always called it…) Shotzy’s is bigger than any pup in my house, with Bartles second, then JD, then Quincie… Tang the Cat has no bump (LOL).

    Wishing all the best to all of you in the new year…

    Hugs (and slobbers and purrs) from the Lash Pack in Central Coast California

    Thank you Kramers, and all of the extended DD family, for sharing another year of beagleness with all of us. It’s been an emotional week, for the nation, for everyone who shares on this site, and for my own family. Hoping we will have some “all is calm, all is bright” for the next few days so we can relax and enjoy the holiday.

    Merry Christmas and a very Blessed New Year to everyone!
