This is one of my favorites – two best friends for 14+ years.

    What darling beags!
    It’s so much easier to get good pictures when they’re snoozing.
    Love to see the way Olivia and Lola are curled up in the recliners…
    And I love the way Skippy (or Molly) has his/ her paw over the other pup like they are “spooning” 🙂

    All so cute!! None of ours ever snuggled together. Josie would smash Jordan (and now Lady) into the corner of the back seat of the car for long rides (she takes her 3/4 share out of the middle), but that’s not cuddling.

  3. OMG! CUTE! How long have they lived together and what age were they introduced? They seem like litter mates!

    See, whenever mine are snoozing and I think ‘oh how cute’, as soon as I get the camera, two heads perk up. Adorable pictures!

      Mine never cuddle or even sleep on the same piece of furniture at the same time. 😦
      I worry that they haven’t bonded after all these years.

      Pups are so cute, both pairs. Love the arm around the other….

      TGIF everyone!!!

        Even if they don’t snuggle, I’m certain they’re bonded. I’ve definitely seen things between Josie and Jordan, and now Lady and Josie that show they do consider themselves a pack. They seem to “orbit” around each other, if that makes sense. As a matter of fact, I was very surprised at how upset Josie was (and for the length of time) after Jordan passed away, since she’d always treated him like the village idiot. But I guess even idiots are missed when they’re gone. :->

    Yeah, I have two littermates who seem to ignore each other, except when Lily is bullying Gomez. But I don’t DARE separate them or there’s real drama.

    Gomie and Mr. Peabz (the boys) hang out together more than the siblings, while Lily just runs around bossing around members of all species.

    That pic of the two best friends is just so sweet!

  6. Love both pictures. The his and her chairs are great. Spencer would love to snuggle with Oscar but Oscar would never let him. He wants to make sure Spencer knows that he is alpha.

    Is it too late to send some pictures????

    After two trips to the Apple store and the fear of maybe having to get a new computer and all new business software for the new “Maverick” operating system (estimated additional $600) I found out that the DELETE key of my keyboard was stuck ON. Not a good thing. A nice $50 fix for a new keyboard to a potential bad problem. I knew something was up when the second link to my last post was incorrect and then the next day I couldn’t “type” anything.

    Did you know that a five year computer is considered Vintage. I thought something had to be 50+ to be vintage, like me! Ha Ha

      You can still send in a photo – I’m posting them in the order received.

      a 3 year old sewing machine is out of date…
      go figure.

      • My mom bought a sewing machine in 1955, the year I was born, thinking that she would sew all these little frilly dresses, which she didn’t. I have it and that thing is solid metal and is a rock. It will out live me. I only use it to repair things, but it is awesome. My neighbor has a 1955 truck and it still runs. So what gives?

      • harperlea said

        My husband has a 57 Chevy truck that still purrs like kitten. It’s all original and his Dad bought it when Rick was a baby. His dad gave it to Rick for his birthday in 2005.
        I think many things were built so much better from the 70’s and earlier 🙂

    How sweet, beautiful beagles. Skippy and Molly remind me of my Hubble and Cassie…oh how I miss them.
    Did Olivia and Lola read all those newspapers before their nap?

  8. Julie, JB & Cassie's Mum in the UK said

    More great pictures! I did a double take when I saw Skippy and Molly; the one nearest the camera looks SO like JB when he’s asleep!

    Hello, fellow beagle lovers! Olivia and Lola ‘s mom here. Olivia is 10 and we got her when she was a wee thing. We adopted Lola from a shelter about 3 years ago and our best guess is that she’s 8. Livvie is DEFINITELY the alpha and Lola follows her everywhere. I would so love for them to cuddle, but the closest we’ve come is that they will occasionally touch when they’re lying next to each other. Olivia hates when anyone is petting Lola and bulldozes her way in between! But don’t worry, we make sure Lola gets plenty of love! Our friends tell us Lola hit the jackpot-from life on the streets to the lap(dog) of luxury!!
    Love everyone’s pix!!

      Our pack is a weird mix. Like Susan stated, the two males “orbit” around each other and tolerate one another (mostly, with a few fights occasionally over space or food). Shotzy the GS loves everybody, and is teaching Wookey pup the same. I think that Shotzy and Wookey will end up strongly bonded (both are GS) as Wookey looks to Shotz like a mama dog, and they both sleep cuddled together sometimes. JD had such a strong bond with our Whisky Girl Beagle and hasn’t bonded with any dog since 😦
      And Bartles the Basset is a complete snuggler and will nose his way in whenever any one else gets attention…

    Have been playing catch-up on the DD…… seeing everyone’s pictures!
