A good time was had by all

Posted by laurie on May 6, 2013


We’ve been hosting beaglefests for more than ten years and this was the largest. About 60 people and 40 dogs. The weather was nothing short of stunning. Sunny and about 70 degrees.


Phillip ordered three 6-foot subs. Two and a half were eaten.


As always, the beagles gathered at the door. It’s not easy to open a sliding glass door without a few beagles running in. And even harder to corral them and push them back out. By the way, that’s Audrey’s Holly on the left.


All the dogs had fun. Some more than others.


One of these cuties is Sherman and one is April. Can you tell who is who?


Beaglefests tire out everyone, humans and dogs.

    Yes, we all had a great time! Thanks so much. My Timmy is now a registered sex offender in NJ.

    Wow! What fun…. I think Sherm is on the left and Angel is on the right? (looking at the picture).
    Angel, what a great name for a beagle !
    I’m surprised Uncle Bob only had one beagle in his lap!

    Looks like so much fun. Oh how I would love to be in a pack of 40 Beagles.

      Me too! Forty beagles sounds like complete pandemonium, not to mention hilarity. I send my best wishes to the members of the Poop Patrol after THAT crowd!

    Looks like a great time! All of the beagles are adorable (as if they wouldn’t be). I was thinking of you all as I was driving up the Garden State Parkway yesterday… so close.

    How much fun – I’ll have to come up from Texas for this someday!

    What a great day for a party! I see the picture of the three giant subs…….what did you get for the humans to eat??? πŸ™‚

    Wow -ee, what a day!
    Thanks so much for the pix of transporting those 6′ ‘subs’ – I’m now wondering if they do them in England, will investigate! Dylan would always help with sampling…

    Love the picture of all the dogs by the door, they almost saying let us in where the food is! LOL!

    Wow! What a good time. Our version of BeagleFest takes place every Sunday in my Mom’s back yard. She has 2 and we take our 3 and 2 little old lady Doxies and it is a blast. Her neighbor has a little yappy dog that runs out to the fence, hypers the hounds into a frenzy and then struts back into his house. Someday we will load up our pack and attend your event. Our Pete would like a 6′ sub of his own please πŸ™‚

  10. Thank you Laurie and Phillip for being such great hosts ! It was a perfect day. I know that Holly snuck in at least once – trying to get a few bites of that sub. I loved it when Phillip looked up at the 2nd level of the house and saw a beable looking out at him from his bedroom window- and it wasn’t Sherman or Stanley. Those sneaky beagles !

    I was telling Erich about this at lunch. He said “Oh I’d like to see a picture with 40 beagles in it”. Really? We can’t get our TWO to cooperate for a picture and he thought there would be a picture of 40?? Looks like a lot of fun, and makes me realize, as much as I want a pack, I’m best with just the two we have.

  12. Carol, Eddy's mom said

    Looks like a perfect day! Love the pictures. Nice to Sherman and Uncle Bob relaxing together.

  13. Leah said

    Love y’all’s comments – lots of LOLs – sounds like a fun and funny day!

  14. Luana, Cody, and Henry said

    Thanks for all the pix and stories. What a crew!

  15. Bailey & Gypsy & Trents dad said

    so sorry we didn’t make it! Looks like you all had a blast!

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

    Looks like a great time was had by all! The last picture of the beagle asleep (with Uncle Bob?) is just how JB likes to sleep on my husband, and he likes his hands held just the same!

    For once in my life I wished I lived in New Jersey so I could attend Beaglefest, what a hoot! Thanks for sharing!
