   Leave a bone for Beasley

Beezer, Honey Hound, Bug, Roo Roo Boy, Weasle and Noodle....when he's all limp and sleepy.

Doggie Dynamics:

Eating, being a part of things, killing the sqeaker in a new toy, full body massages, being a cuddle bug, popping bubble wrap, and sleeping wherever he pleases.

Smelling clean and fresh, being helped off the bed...or anywhere else (we do it anyway), dinner served late.

Favorite Toy:
4' stuffed snake...great to play tug with, cardboard boxes, tennis balls (he loves a good game of catch), anything really noisy.

Favorite Food:
He couldn't possibly choose.

Favorite Walk:

Best Tricks:
He once made a stick of butter disappear wrapper and all...does that count?

Arrival Story:
We were searching for a Basset, or Basset mix when I found Beezer. I had been to several area shelters in our quest, but this one truly made my heart sink....I guess that's another story. I went there after seeing a "Bagel" they had featured on a pet adoption website, but when I arrived, she had an "adopted" sign on her crate. It was in the crate below her that I spotted him....a bone thin little 4 month old Basset boy. He was just a puppy....I really couldn't believe my eyes. "So, what are you doing here?" I asked him. I couldn't see his tail from where I stood, but I heard it begin to thump against his crate. He had no name. His info card said he was a stray....picked up in a residential area. It was January, it was so cold outside. People must have seen this sweet little half starved hound baby wandering around.....stepping on his ears. I wondered how anyone could have turned away. "May I call you Beasley?" I asked him. The thumping grew louder....

Beasley is fascinating! He has his quirks, like his fondness for eating ice cubes and how he burrows under blankets, even in the summer. I'm amazed that he's comfy in the contorted positions I find him in under there. His sleep number is 35. I adore his groans of contentment. He's taught us alot. Giving him his morning snackie needs to come before brushing my teeth. It needs to come before everything. We've learned how to give proper belly rubs, and that it's always important to share. To his credit, I'm a better house keeper, and a more patient person. I don't know how we managed without him. :)
