Quick Bio:

May 5th 2002

Sleeping in between my mommy's knees under the covers, treats, belly rubs, chasing my brother and sister (yellow labs), treats, giving kisses, getting kisses, my teddy bear, squaky toys, treats,...and oh yeah, did I mention TREATS??

I absolutely HATE cardboard boxes, plastic bags, and anything that's "out of place"

Favorite Toy:
I love my bear, Teddy, but he's for nursing--for playing, I love my camel squeaky toy

Favorite Food:
I'm a beagle...anything!! Except grapes, I think they're little balls for playing. I especially love Papa Murphy's thin-crust pizza, and anything with cheese on it!

Favorite Walk:
I live in the country, so I love to go on walks on the gravel road with my mommy, brother, and sister

Best Tricks:
I'm too smart to do any stupid pet tricks

Arrival Story:
My mom and dad got me as a puppy. They didn't know anything about puppy mills at the time. Had they known, they may have never found me! I'm thankful for their ignorance. My mom was finishing college when she saw me in the pet store, and didn't have enough money to get me "out of jail". The store owner wasn't very sympathetic, but agreed to hold a check...and me...for a few weeks until my mom had enough money. My mom was so afraid I would be sold to someone who had the money right away! The pet store I lived in was an hour away from my mom's home, but she drove there almost every day to see me. I would get so excited and cry when I heard her voice! My sisters were sold before my mom even met me--so I had to live a few weeks with some Chihuahua's. This is where I learned Spanish, and my mom and dad say I sometimes make faces that look like my latin friends! I was so happy to finally come home--my mom and dad were so happy and have spoiled me rotten ever since!

My apologies...

My sincerest apologies to my dear fans who have been missing my diary. My mother (and typist) has been quite busy lately. Something to do with "fertility" treatments. I don't know what that means, but mom says it will get me closer to having a little human brother or sister...and you all know how much I love those little humans--they drop their food ALL the time and always taste so sweet!!

My life these last few weeks hasn't been too exciting. Today I got to take a LONG nap with mom and dad...oh how I love naps!! They are my absolute FAVE!! It's getting pretty cool outside, so I had to snuggle WAY under the covers, right up against mommy's legs. That's my FAVORITE place in the whole wide world!!

My secret lover Chip still lurks around my love nest, but not as often. I wonder if another Beagle has stolen his heart? Oh my dogness, I sure hope not! He is the love of my life and I will fight any woman who gets in my way!!

I'm going to try to get my mom back in the groove of writing...but I can't make any promises. These humans have a mind of their own...


I am SO smart!

In case you weren't already aware of this fact, my dear fans...I must tell you that I am the smartest beagle in the whole wide world! My mom tells me so all the time. She also says I'm the most beautiful and sweet--but we'll focus on the smart for today.

Case in point: I've learned how to crack open peanut shells and eat only the nut! It's really quite simple. You just have to put them between your paws, chew away the hard yucky part, and you've hit gold!! I swear, that peanutty goodness is worth all the work.

Another talent I have is opening screen doors. Now, my mom and dad have never seen me do this, but my grandpa Ed said he saw me open the screen door with my nose and paws! Mom and Dad are a little skeptical, but I don't want them to know of this talent...if they only knew of the adventures I went on during the day!

These are just a few of the examples of my brilliance. I could go on for days...but we'll leave it at that for today.


Panty chewa-gami

You've all heard of oragami, the asian paper-folding art, right? Well, I am quite the expert at another fine art. I like to call it panty chewagami. It's really quite simple, and the results are true works of art!

Instead of paper, I use underwear. Not socks, not shirts...underwear. This is very important to maintain the integrity of the final piece. Unerwear of all shapes and sizes may be used, but they MUST be underwear! If you're unable to locate a pair, swim suit bottoms will also suffice.

It usually begins when Mom and Dad leave and come back with some guests. I don't want my art to be wasted on just two people! As soon as they give me their kisses and head out the door, I high-tail it to the laundry room or bathroom. I love to dig through piles of laundry--it's amazing what you can find in there!

As soon as I've chosen an appropriate pair (or two, depending on the occasion), I bring them out to the entry carpet, so as to display them for all who enter my home.

I simply take the underwear between my two little paws and chew! It's that simple!! Sometimes I end up with little holes, other times I chew away big all depends on the look you're going for.

As soon as Mom and Dad return, the first thing their guests see is my panty chewagami!! Mom usually gasps in admiration and quickly snatches them up and brings them to another room (for safe keeping, I'm sure). I'm pretty sure she just doesn't want the world to know of my talents...why, we would have a line going down the road!!

Some say they can see deeper meaning in my artwork...the face of god, the meaning of life, but I like to tell my dear, sweet fans that it's simply an act of self-expression.
