It always amazes me how the boys can go from 0 to 60 in about half a second. Phillip was on speaker phone last night with Uncle Bob when Bob’s dog barked in the background. Stanley was immediately awake and started to carry on as only Stanley can. Sherman seems to hear loud barking so he awoke and happily joined in. They searched the house and yard to find the intruder with no success, so they went back to sleep.

So along with the open discussion on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I thought I’d also feature more oldies but goodies. This photo of Clayton is from December 1999.

Your honor

Phillip is holding Stanley from underneath while uncle Bob took the picture. They were at the municipal building for the Memorial Day parade and this is the Council chambers. Which has now had the good fortune of having a beagle walk all over the table.

I hope everyone had a nice (long) weekend. I didn’t do too much but Phillip marched in the town’s Memorial Day parade (here’s last year’s photo). He also sat up with me in the wee hours of Sunday night while I threw up. THAT’S true love!

An oldie but goodie

I was flipping through old photos and found this 1998 gem of Spenser and a puppy I guess we were fostering. What a patient Mr. Man! I’m enjoying a 4-day weekend and will be back next Tuesday.

As shown on TV

Just so you know, I have not smoked marijuana in over thirty years. So that can not be the reason behind the dumbest impulse buy I’ve made in quite a while. It’s called the Paw Plunger. It’s like a big coffee mug with a hole in the top and bristles inside. To clean a muddy paw you fill it with water, insert a paw and scrub up and down against the bristles. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.


I bought it on Amazon (at least I got free shipping) and there is also a product web site, which even has a video!


It’s better with treats inside.

Check out this very cute comic. No beagles, but the expressions are perfect.

On Saturday we went to the gay pride parade in New Hope, just across the river in Pennsylvania. There’s a whole week of festivities and the parade is a lot of fun. There are drag queens, marching bands, floats, and quite a few church groups, which I thought was pretty cool. Notice the rainbow theme?


It extends to all the doggies in the parade as well. No beagles. Lots of pugs.


We arrived early and got patio seats at one of the many restaurants on New Hope’s funky main street. My companions (Judy, Carol and Phillip) started to drink as soon as the restaurant opened, which was 11 AM. Phillip and Carol each enjoyed a key lime martini which IMHO (<–first use ever!) was really quite vile. By the way, these rainbow necklaces are de rigueur. Everyone wears them.


And I mean everyone!

Want a swig?

We’ve been having dinner out on the Lido Deck for the past few days and as you can see, beagle table manners apparently don’t extend outdoors. The weather is lovely and there are no bugs yet, but there is this one dog (who shall remain nameless) who takes the opportunity to bark at any and all noises from next door or the road. We are so fortunate that our neighbors don’t complain.
