Festive beagles!

I tried for a festive action shot, but this is the best I got. Spunky loves opening presents – more than what’s inside – and when hers are all opened, she helps us by shredding wrapping paper all over the floor. When I saw her sitting there with a piece of paper stuck to her lip, I had to try to capture it. It’s kind of amazing that we can have the gifts under the tree for days and she doesn’t really bother them – except the ones for her. How she knows, I have no idea, but she always does. Come time for opening the gifts, however, and she’s like a little kid – gets so excited she just wriggles.

Here are some Christmas Day pix of my precious boys. I love the one of Henry (wearing the Christmas collar)and his Uncle Dennis (sort of like your Uncle Bob!). Uncle Dennis managed to hold Cody still long enough for me to get a picture of the two of them wearing their Santa hats.

I’ve attached a photo of my two girls, Ruby on the left, and Shay on the right. The little dog in the middle is Matilda, a friend’s rat terrier who is staying with us for a week, and although little is taking ownership of all the stuffed toys Santa Paws brought. This pose required a large number of treats!

Came home after leaving Lucy and Trooper in the house for about two hours and the rascal had eaten all the goodies. This is what I sent to Lucy’s pet sitter and mail lady (who stops every day to give our beagles treats). Saint Trooper – who would have jumped up if he could have.

Bailey is quite the ‘bird’ expert! She cooks a mean turkey.


Kate sent this great photo of her late and great Sophie and Polly, from a Christmas years ago.

We used the pic for our Xmas Card. It is staged anyway. BJ does not even get close to the Xmas tree anymore. It does not smell like food. LOL The inside of the card says:
“Dear Santa, I have ben really, really good this year. I just thought I saw a squirrel in the tree … honestly!”

Here’s Bartles…
He wiggled and snuggled his way up to my belly one night as we were settling down to sleep (I was actually reading) and I managed to get this picture… I could’ve propped my Nook up on his head to read better J

This is the view I get in the morning when Barts is digging me out of the covers… I figured the red comforter gives it a festive Christmas look 🙂

Nathaniel (top) looks similar to Max in the Grinch…poor guy! I think I got the best of his dignity in this one…. And Phoebe just loves working it in her Santa sweater.

Here is a picture of my beagle Wally in his Santa outfit. He’s not normally a fan of wearing clothes, but he put up with me for a few seconds so I could get this shot. Wally loves baby carrots, so he was rewarded with a snack for being a good boy and posing for the camera.

This was taken a few days ago [early December, actually], right after our 2 year adoption anniversary (he turned 5 years old this summer). Wally is a big lover and requires lots of snuggles everyday. He’s a clown and definitely brings a lot of love and laughs to our family.

    These pics & stories have given me such a laugh. I think over the years we have owned beagles they have indulged in all the antics featured 🙂
    Happy New Year to all followers of the Daily Digital (particularly the Kramer family, thanks Laurie!) whether they’re human or canine!

    Oh my goodness – Wally in his Santa hat and beard is so darn cute!!

    Happy New Year everyone!

    Happy 2013 to all of the DD community – two-footed and four!

    All the pics are adorable. In the pic of Cody and Uncle Dennis, note the scat mats protecting the tree. They are the only reason we can have a tree!

    • Luana, Cody, and Henry said

      P.S. to this note: After vacuuming the floor yesterday I forgot to put the scat mat back that was on the floor right in front of the tree. This morning I was getting ready to go to breakfast with a friend and didn’t pay attention to the fact that Cody was getting particularly rambunctious. When I came out with my coat to leave I saw the red and gold remnants of SOMETHING in the hallway. Mr. Cody had taken advantage of the missing scat mat and got hold of a little Christmas bear under the tree. He did quite a bit of damage, though he didn’t entirely destroy the bear. I told him what a bad boy he was (quite loudly!) and put him in his kennel with no treats. Tomorrow I will try to repair the damage to the little bear!

      Hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year’s Eve!

    Laurie, thank you for posting all the adorable Christmas pics. Love seeing all the beagles and non-beagles! Ruby, Shay, and Matilda are darling (I BET it took a lot of treats to get that shot!). Love seeing Bartles’ close-up! How did you ever get Wally to pose with the Santa hat and beard? Ditto for Nathaniel and Phoebe in their Christmas attire! The posed pic of BJ is so funny for your Xmas card! Lucy and Cody together would create LOTS of New Year’s Eve excitement!

    These are some of the best, most festive Beagle photos I have ever seen… big ol’ smile!

  8. Scott and Scout said

    GREAT Photos! all the guys (and gals) are so cute!! Matilda with her paw raised is precious. And Wally (Santa Dog) made me laugh out loud.

    Happy New Year everyone.

    Thank you all for the smiles- just when I seem to need it most, beagles always come through.

    Happy New Year!
