   Leave a bone for Beanie McTavish

Mr. Peepers, Beans, Beanie Weenie, Beana,

Quick Bio:
-dog rescue

Gotcha Date:
December 18th 2010

December 18th 2008

Mama, Skwerl Toy, Mama, Man Purse, Exploring Your Nose With His Snakelike Tongue, Mama, Going Bye-Bye, Boat Rides, MAMA!

Crows, Squirrels, Trucks driving down his block, Other Dogs coming near his Mama, When he can't be near his Mama, Vacuum Cleaners,

Favorite Toy:
Giant Squirrel, Manpurse. Bobo. In that order precisely.

Favorite Food:
Whatever Mama is eating. But he is very polite and waits patiently for a handout.

Favorite Walk:
He's a litte Runaway. Beanie is a Great Adventurer and he wants to Go EVERYWHERE. He lays down in front of the door to prevent us from going anywhere without him. He wears 4 tags and is microchipped because of his running away.

Best Tricks:
Escaping captivity, locating Mama when she hides from him, Roto-rootering your nose with his tongue when you least expect it,

Arrival Story:
Beanie was picked up by Animal Control in Missouri on multiple occasions. He is an accomplished escape artist, who apparently was not adored as he should be in his former home. He had been running around town for about a month. His people didn't even bother to look for him. According to Midwest Animal Rescue Services, he was in a high kill shelter and so they had him pulled and put into a foster home in Missouri. Unfortunately there were not a lot of applicants for a forever family for little McTavish, So MARS had him transported to Minnesota along with a big truckload of dogs on the night of 12/18/10. I had inquired about him after seeing his sweet face online at 3 p.m. on Friday, and at 9:30 Friday night I got an email asking if we would foster him. We brought him home at around 10:00 p.m. the next evening. By midmorning Sunday we decided that Beanie McTavish was in his forevfur home. And his brother from another mother, Bacon, was overjoyed!!!

Beanie is teeny weeny. He's just a little peanut. He has a little white beard, big chocolatey eyes and a little white patch on his chest, just like his brother. He has the softest fur in the whole world. His age is guesstimated by veterinarians to be somewhere between 2-3 years of age. He also looks like he might have some Affenpinscher or Brussels Griffon in him. He's got a short shnooter and big eyes. Beanie is a TOTAL EDDIE HASKELL. He's the sweetest little cuddlebug lamb to people, but after 2 days it's becoming very apparent he is all ALPHA TERRIER. Mama - His. Toys- His. Bully Sticks - His. Backyard - His. You hear that Bacon? And no zoomies! Beanie will get you, Bacon!

Dear Diary,

Today is the day of LUUUUUUUUUVVVV!

The Bean's day of luuuuuuuuvvvvv began when I woke up, snuggled besides my most wonderfur Valentine girl, Mama.

We are not celerbrating until Mama comes home from working-times. She is bringing home some fancy dinners for me & hers, short ribs, lobster mac & cheeses, taters, brussel sprouts, and CAKE. We will have to share with Papa and Bacon I supposes. But that is cause Mama is a nice girl. Beanie would make them both eat the kibbles. That is fine for them.

Before Mama left for work, while Papa loungered in the bed, she went to give him the Valentine Smoochie, and Bean got very jealous. So I climbed up the Papa mountain and scooched right into the nooks and crannies between their faces, and I stuck my long eel-like tongue right up Papa's nose.

This made them separates just long enough for Beanie to wriggle him whole self onto Papa's chest and give Papa a big face bath. Slurpity-slurple.

Then them two started torturing Bean by making more exaggermatated kissy faces, and I said, "Oh no you don't," and I got my tongue right in between them!! That put an end to that. Although my sweet Mamooo and Papa were laughing at the Bean. I know Mama didn't mean it. But just you wait Papa. Next time you try to put a leash on me, Beanie's gonna tinkle on you!

Happy Valentine's to all my furriends. I hope you & your special Valentine has lots of smoochies.


A Whole Week With Mama All to Ourselves

Dear Diary,

Papa went on a vacayshun for a whole wide week, and Mama had the flews, which meaned that all her plans for "cat's away mouse gonna play" times went right out the window. Plus it were elebenty-billyun degrees below zero.

So this meaned that for an entire week, it were just Beanie, Bacon & Mama, snuggling, rolling around on the floor, wrasslin, eating treats, and having fun.

We LOVE having Mama's undivided attenshuns.

And here's a funny thing that Papa should know...NOT ONCE during the entire week did Bakeacake wakeywake Mama in the middle of the night time to go potty.

Papa insists that Bacon MUST be let out evfurry night in the middle of the night because he stands on Papa's chest and huffs and puffs and blows hot air in Dad's face, and makes tiny ruff, ruff noises, until Dad gets up and lets him out. Mama is absolutely right, as usual. Bacon has Papa trained. He is perfectly capable of waiting until morning time to go out and make tinkles. BOL! But hey, wouldn't you take advantage of an extra trip outside for playtime if you could?

Stay warm!

Wuff, the Beesun Boys


Fear & Loathing in San Francisco - Say is ain't so, Say!

The writing was on the hydrant, I spose.

Big corporations gotta make money. That's a peepole thing. Make advertisers happy, and poop on the little guys with the big hearts.

It's not personal. It's busyness. If Mama had a Meaty Bone for evfurry time she's heard that, well, she'd have a lot of Meaty Bones.


Beanie just wanted to say the whole Beesun Bunch will nevfur furget the fun times and furriendships, the laughter and the tears. The compassion, and MOSTLY the UNDERSTANDING of other DOGPARENTS, who nevfur got tired of cute dog stories, or thought our endless worry ovfur our furry ones was neurotic or crazy.

And this is not the end for us. Perhaps for "Say It Ain't So" Media's failed takeover, and their failure to understand Dogster's value proposition. But nevfur for the furriends we made here.

We love you guyses.
