Nicknames: Boogle, Boogs, Beagle-butt, Baby, Little Boy, SPIT IT OUT!!
Birthday: June 8th 2004
Likes: Chasing my tail, lounging in my beanbag, hogging Mommy's lap, destroying things I have stolen, eating miscellaneous things out of the yard, getting my neck scratched.
Pet-Peeves: Not being spoiled 100% of the time. (If Boogle ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.)
Favorite Toy: Anything that squeeks or makes noise! For the longest time I wasn't allowed to have soft cuddly toys, due to my keen ability to destroy them in 5.2 seconds flat. Now I actually allow them to hang around for a couple of weeks.
Favorite Walk: Wherever I can manage to walk my humans.
Best Tricks: I can sit, lay down, shake, speak, speak "nice," roll over. . . .and "WALK" is the newest in my repertoire. But only if there are treats on hand!
Arrival Story: One day my future mommy and daddy walked into the pet shop where I was, and I made an extra-hard effort to look really pathetic and cute so that they would come back that weekend and get me. Then, each time they played with me, I did my best to act calm and collected so they would think I was a sweet, mellow little beagle. It worked. Boooooooy, did I fool them.
Bio: I am the king, and I won't let you forget it. My name, Basil, means "kingly." This year my Mommy and Daddy bought me my very own HOUSE! I now have lots more space, plus a YARD, to have BEAGLE CRAZY TIME in!!
There's an alien in my house. Mommy calls it "munchkin." Daddy calls it "sweet pea." I call it weird.
In February, Mommy and Daddy went to the hospital. I thought they were going to bring home my sister. Whatever this thing is, it isn't what I expected.
The alien smelled really weird to me. I always thought that, since Mommy kept promising me a sister, she would smell like me. Not so. She smells sort of like Mommy. I smell much better.
The alien is really noisy sometimes. It's also very hungry. It demands food every three hours, sometimes sooner. Mommy says, "Don't worry, Boogs, it will get easier." I say, "Mommy, you're nuts."
Anyway, all things considered, I guess it is pretty cute. It smiles a lot and makes funny sounds, but I keep my distance. I'm never sure when its tentacles are going to pull my ears or tail. Mommy says that in a few more months it will be dropping lots of nummies on the floor for me. I'm holding out for the good stuff.
Puppy kisses for all (and to all a close encounter with a third kind).
