Next, peanut butter

Posted by laurie on October 28, 2013


“What’s this? It smells interesting.”


“Just a taste.”


“Awful! But that hasn’t stopped me yet!”

Stanley (who can now jump up onto the couch) gently picked up the lemon and took it into the sun where he licked it a little more and then gave up.

  1. So – did Stanley finally eat it ? Don’t keep us in suspense…LOL –
    I am so happy to report – that Princess Holly is felling better. Vet still could not find the cause of her pain – but on Sunday she actually ran across the yard to me- and was also able to jump up on our bed on her own. We are so relieved. Vet said to keep giving her the pain pills until they are gone.
    Sending prayers and good thougts to the DD friends in the UK – heard you may be having some Gale Winds and bad storms and flooding there. Please be safe !

      Good news about Holly!

      That Stanley! Beagles will eat just about anything if they they it is an ‘opportunity’ to get something no one else can have. I had a beagle that would eat pickles if the other two were near, but yet if they were outside, he would spit them out.

        Yup. The presence of another dog will enhance the attractiveness of pretty much anything. In fact, if Gomez gets something that Lily doesn’t, she’ll immediately try to eat ANYTHING to get even.

        Hope Holly continues on the road to recovery!

      Wonderful news about Holly!! What a relief. Kiss her for me!

    • Julie, JB & Cassie's Mum in England said

      Great news about Princess Holly, hope she continues to improve. Thank you for thinking about us here in the UK. Storm St Jude hit southern England overnight last night and into this morning. We had winds up to 105mph and sadly two people lost their lives through falling trees. We had major disruption to train and road travel (mainly falling trees) and about 270,000 people have been without power for many hours. Fortunately it all happened south of Derbyshire and all we had was some heavy rain this morning, which soon cleared away. St Jude has pretty much moved off into the North Sea now, leaving the mop up operation behind!

    Stan is Maymo wannabe!

    Great news about Holly.

    So happy to hear about Holly!!!
    And I echo Audrey’s sentiments… Hoping all our DD UK friends are safe and snug!

    So glad to hear that both Stan and Holly are improving! That’s a riot about the lemon with Stan (and Maymo the lemon beagle with the lemon!). I’ll have to see what Lady thinks of lemons …. so far, there hasn’t been anything she’ll turn down. Josie is definitely pickier.

  5. Gypsy & Trents dad said

    glad to hear Stan and Holly are doing better.
    Wish I could share some good new about Trent. He had another seizure over the weekend. We are pretty sure this was his 4th in a month.
    He is going to see the vet this afternoon. We’ll see what other tests we can do….

    • Sue - Barney, Jodi & Huggy's Mom said

      Poor baby Trent. Puppy prayers being sent. Keep us posted. Hugs to all.

    • harperlea said

      So very sorry to hear about Trent.
      Sending puppy nose bumps from the Lash Pack…
      Hoping the vet can figure out what’s going on!!!

    • Kate (Gandolf's mom) said

      Awwww! Poor Trent. I hope all goes well at the vet and you get answers.

    • Sending good thoughts and hugs to you and to Trent – and we hope the Vet is able to help with treatments/ prevention.

      My girl Booger has Epilepsy and it started with small seizures once a month or so. The older she got the more she had and lasted longer. She is now on meds and doing real well. It started when she was 5 or 6-she is now 11. The hard part is watching and not know what to do. A dark room with out noise helps-
      Wishing you well.

    • Amy~Cobalt & Onyx's mom said

      Sorry to hear this. Sending good thoughts & prayers to Trent.

    • Susan in DE said

      Poor little Trent! Double check that none of the dog food/treats that he is getting are on any recall lists (There’s a recall on a lot of beef jerky treats right now ….). When that whole melamine crisis with ingredients sourced from China was going on, a friend found out fairly late that the food she was giving her beagle was on the recall list. She’d been having seizures that the vet couldn’t figure out, and they stopped when she stopped giving that food. Several years later, that dog is happy and healthy and hasn’t had another seizure since. It’s a slim chance, I’m sure, but I thought it was worth mentioning — don’t leave any stone unturned!

    • Trent’s Dad. If you have not had a blood test for low glucose please do. Unfortunately my little Rosco had Insulinoma and had seizures. When he was loosing his ability to use his back legs not one vet thought to do a blood test (in about 3-4 vets). They thought it was his spine or something like that. I hope it’s not Insulinoma, but you better check.

      Good luck and our thoughts are with you.

    In the winter, when Clementine orange are in season my beagle is always at my feet waiting for me to drop a slice. For some reason oranges make him drool like crazy!! So while I’m eating the orange and looking at the begging hound eyes my feet are enjoying a “mini-shower” of doggy drool!!! I’ve not tried lemons yet but this guy loves the oddest foods (kale, watermelon, carrot, etc) so who knows, he might like a lemon!!

  7. On another fun note, Spencer is going in tomorrow for a rectal pull through operation to remove a large polyp in his rear. Fortunately the polyp is close to the anal opening and supposedly will be a fairly safe operation. Poor little guy has been struggling for months and months when he tries to poop with bloody discharge. We tried a lot of holistic treatments including Chinese herbs, turmeric and essential oils, but it just has to be operated on and removed. The recovery is supposed to be easy and afterwards we can go on walks without him stopping about 20 times to try to poop.

    Of course I’m very stressed out. And I think he has to spend the night at the hospital.

    It’s late on the east coast so I’ll post this again for everyone tomorrow early for everyone. Thanks in advance for thinking positive thoughts for us.

      Sending the best PAWSITIVE thoughts and wishes for a very speedy recovery (and relaxed pooping!)
      Hugs and puppy kisses from the Lash Pack

    • Kaye - Bode's mum said

      Thanks for posting this, Donna. Bode has been having difficulty lately, and I chalked it up to him getting older. Maybe it’s more than that!

    We are so very sorry to hear of all the ailing beagles may they all be back to the their happy little selves real soon. They are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  9. Luana, Cody, and Henry said

    So glad to hear Stan is better! Jumping on the couch is a good indicator he’s improving.

    Praying for Trent, that his vet finds the cause of his seizures and can successfully treat him. Also praying for Donna’s Spencer that his rectal procedure is successful.

    How we worry about our precious beagle babies!
