I love people food, getting up on the bed in the morning to cuddle and barking at the mailman. I love to nap on the waterbed and sniff at the front door. I smell visiting cats, possums and raccoons thru the doorframe and bark a warning!
I hate getting my nails clipped. Hey, don't touch my paws! Otherwise I am a happy dog.
My plush red seal comforts me when I'm feeling insecure. I also love "jiggle pets" and my quacking duck.
I will do anything for cheese. I'm also nuts for Quaker oats, dry, right out of the box. There are some new dried chicken breast treats that are so yummy I will do all my tricks to get them.
I love to walk anywhere there are interesting smells. We call it "Going out for a sniff." We walk around the block and that is enough for me. I am getting much better at walks now. I don't pull on the leash and I keep a good pace.
I do a great "high 5." I also sit, stay, rollover, play dead, MORE dead and sit with a treat on my nose until M says "okay." I also will go to the "other room" on command. Mom has started me on clicker training and I am learning even more tricks!!!
My first mommy had heart problems and could not keep me. When I was a puppy I was easy to be with, but as I got bigger it got more difficult. I pulled too hard on the leash during walks and I didn't understand why mommy couldn't keep up. She was very sad to let me go, but the lady at the beagle rescue promised to find me a good home. It was very hard for both of us. My first mommy wrote a wonderful letter about how loving I was. Then my new mommy contacted beagle rescue. She needed someone special to love. I can't say it was love at first sight for me. For a while I kept wondering where my first mommy was. Over time, with lots of cuddles and walks and treats I settled into my new home and grew to love my new mommy. Then she got married and I got a whole new family! I love being the center of attention as the "only dog." ---Oh no! First I get a foster sister, then Phoebe gets to be part of the family! Now I have to share the attention, but I have a great playmate to get into trouble with. Things seem to work out for the best.
I love to play "chase." I use a noisy toy to get M's attention me as I run away. Sometime I take the noisy toy and once the chase is on I lead M into the kitchen. Then I drop the toy by my food bowl. "Hey, isn't it time for a treat?"
I have unusual coloring for a purebred beagle. Some call it "Blue Tick" but I like to think of it as "formal attire." I fit in anywhere with my black ears, face mask and my ermine fur collar. I do shed much more than the average beagle, M says it's about as much in a week to make a new dog. I like producing a furry shed storm on my loved ones so anyone can see they belong to me. Excuse me, I have to go bark at the vacuum again.

Favorite time of day:
Just about 3pm, when the mailman comes. I "go postal", throwing myself at the door. When the mailman clears the fence, M opens the door so I can dash across the yard to bark at him some more. M thinks it is the fastest I move all day.
Favorite kitchen behavior:
I monitor all food preparation by standing on my hind feet with my paws on the counter. Sometimes I will try to lick interesting food that it within reach of my tongue.
Favorite piece of furniture:
The king size waterbed. It is nice and warm and perfect for a nap.
Favorite car trip:
To the groomers! I love the way 'Vonne bathes me.
Riding behind a bike in my cart.
Favorite naughty activity:
Rolling in stinky stuff. Which usually results in my favorite car trip to the groomers.
When you see someone on the street, go up to them. Find out who they are and even sniff them if that will help you get acquainted. Don't put off playing or making friends or doing things for another day. Don't be too busy for a walk or a bite to eat with friends. And like all dogs, forgive easily, love unconditionally and make each day an adventure.

Well, my sweet foster sister got adopted. By my mom. She says she is a foster mother drop-out. She fell in love (me too) and couldn't let her go. Her name used to be Mitzi, but mom has decided to rename her Phoebe. A new name for her new life.
So now we play together every day. And go for walks. And compete for attention. And all is well in our world. We have so much to be thankful for. Aroooooooo!

I've been so busy I haven't had time to mention I have another foster sister!
Her name is Mitzi and she has the most wonderful ears. She is part Papillon and her ears do the talking.
She loves all the toys and takes them from the basket to play with. She scatters them everywhere, even outside! I don't mind as long as she leaves my seal alone. He is MINE!
When she first got here, she was really shy and scared. It took a while for her to feel comfortable and safe here. I did my best to be a good example for her and I showed her all my tricks.
Then I had to go to the special vet dentist and have dental surgery to remove a damaged tooth. I was on medication when I got home, so I didn't really mind that Mitzi was taking over my turf. As long as I get lots of cuddles, I'm okay with sharing.
When I started feeling better Mitzi was feeling more confident. We have been having a great time tearing around, chasing and playing.
Today, Mitzi went to the Life4Paws adoption event. She is still looking for her forever home. She is a terrific girl with a wonderful big heart and lot of love to give. So, here's to you, Mitzi. Atta girl!

For the past 3 weeks my space has been invaded! My mom volunteered to take in a foster dog, and next thing you know, someone was sleeping in my bed. Her name is Abby and she is a very energetic youngster. She dug into my toy basket and brought out every one of my toys. A few didn't interest her too much, but most of them were soon scattered all over the house.
She disrupted our routines. Dinnertime became a noisy celebration. I had to make sure to wolf down my food before she finished hers. We went on walks together joined by a coupler leash.
And when I wanted to rest, she wanted to play. She would jump on me and yap until I joined her in a game of chase or tug-of-war.
I was used to getting all the attention, and suddenly I had to share with this little interloper.
I wet on my mom's bed in protest.
Then Sunday, we went for a drive, and Abby went away with a new family.
And now that she is gone, I miss her.
Hey Abby, be a good girl. I'm sure your new home will be full of liveliness and love. Best wishes, Sebastian.
