Meet Bear, the cocker spaniel who lives next door. His parents had to go to New York overnight and their dog sitter wasn’t available, so he came over here. Stanley freaked at first, then got used to him. Sherman could live with twelve other dogs and not mind it. Bear really wanted to mark, so he had a little crate time.


Ironically, the dog that woke me up three times last night was Sherman. He often goes downstairs at night and will start to howl for no apparent reason. Well, there’s probably a reason, and it better be a good one.

I’ll be back here next Monday. Happy Thanksgiving and remember, dark turkey and skin aren’t good for dogs!

    Aww. Bear sort of looks like my sister’s Cocker Spaniel. She has two. The beagles and the Cockers have never met, but we’ve wondered what would happen if they did. We have said none of our houses are big enough for it.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all in Beagle land!

    Really, dark turkey meat is not good for dogs? I don’t know if I knew that. Happy Thanksgiving to all the beagles, honary beagles and their people!!!! Gobble gobble gobble!!! Bear sure is a cutie.

      Avoid fat at all costs–dark meat, gravy, etc. Vets see a lot of pancreatitis after Thanksgiving. Actually any change in diet can upset a dog’s digestion. Also, be careful about how you dispose of turkey trusses (the string). It smells like turkey, so some dogs fish it out of the garbage and eat it. Not good! Sometimes it has to be surgically removed.

      And we are thankful for Phillip, too! Bear is cute. My sister has a cocker spaniel with weight issues, no matter how hard she tries to trim him down (I think his thyroid has been tested). My husband calls him “The Manatee”.

      Happy Thanksgiving and Hanukkah, everyone!

    So when i went to pick up bear he heard the sound of the door and came running expecting to see his parents. Alas it was me and it scared him. He wouldn’t let me near him and snapped at me if i tried to touch him. He would take a treat however. I sat with him on the couch not making eye contact for 5 minutes but still no go. Finally i called Laurie who walked right in and said, “hi bear”. He was fine with her and once he was out of the house he was fine with me.

    The Japanese word for bear is Kuma. There are quite a few Kuma dogs over here.

    And one of the dogs at the dog park is Vera. My husband always has his iPod on at the park and he only hears Bear. All these years he thought her name was Bear.

    And what is the deal with Haunakah this year. One of my neighbors had blue and white Christmas lights up in their window last night and confused some people. Ha.

    Cocker spaniels and beagles both have those pleading, hard-to-resist brown eyes.
