Mmmm, Mmmm, good

Mmmm, pears

Put this one down in the dumb-human files. Mom went outside to wash the car and left us beagles on our own inside. Sure we had toys to play with, but there were two packages of fruit cups on the kitchen counter. Mom had cleaned out the cupboards and found some past-their-prime fruit cups. She left them in plain sight! So I jumped up there and knocked them to the floor with one swift flash of tongue. The pineapple looked a little gross so I went right for the pears. I got two cups open, it was pretty hard getting those plastic tops off! I licked up every bit of pear-juice goodness. I would have eaten all of them, but I got a little tired.
Mom didn't even yell at me when she came in, how could she, I cleaned up! Now, I am exhausted, so I'm lying on the couch with the blanket over me. It's tough being a beagle.

 

Birds, it's what's for dinner

I have been obsessed with the birds in our yard lately. I don't know what it is, but I just want to run out there and chase them all away.
The other day I was out in the yard, sniffing, and this big old dumb bird flies right into my yard. So, naturally, I jumped up and grabbed that big gray bird and stuffed it into my mouth.
Well, about this time my mom sees me and comes running outside and starts chasing me around the yard, trying to get my bird! Some nerve. So I just kept chomping on it while I dodged her left and right. She finally caught me, so I gave a big chomp and swallow. She somehow managed to reach in and grab that bird right out of my mouth.
Mom kept saying, "ew, ew, gross" and washed her hands over and over. I just wanted to get out in the yard and grab my prize. Then she gets on the phone and calls the vet. I'm a beagle, this is what I do. Well, they told her not to worry, but now she's watching me like a hawk (no pun intended).
I was hoping she'd get that bird stuffed so she could put it next to that squirrel I killed at the park. Maybe for my birthday.

 

Celebration time!

Thanks to everybody who voted for me in the dog show! To celebrate my win I waited until Mom went outside to rake leaves and I stole a bag of stuffing off the counter. Stuffing really isn't that good. It's kind of hard to eat. When Mom came back, all she saw was Casey licking up crumbs. I, being the smart one, ran under the table to hide. I still got into trouble. I'm a winner, can't she give me a break?

 

Humans, will they ever learn?

At least this time I ate dog food. Someone left the door to the linen closet open where Casey's food bag was hidden. It was hidden because I had already torn a small hole in the bag. Well, this time, I dragged that bag out, then I ripped it open, then I ate as much as I could, as fast as I could. I got caught. I felt sick. I had to sit on the couch for awhile. Food coma, ick.

 

Oops, I did it again

Will Mommy ever learn? She left to run some errands and Casey and I were very good Beagles. We took a nap on the couch while she was gone and didn't get into anything. But when she came home, she didn't let us out right away. She started unloading stuff from the car and didn't even come to say "Hi!"
So I decided I'd show her! I cased the house and saw that she had put everything out of reach. Everything but a bag of Doritos. Yu-umm! I jumped up on the counter and grabbed that bag of chips, threw it to the floor and ripped it open. The only bad thing, I don't like Cool Ranch Doritos. Yuck. But Casey does, so she came over and helped herself to the bag.
When Mommy walked in, guess who's nose was in the bag? Casey! Ha, ha, ha. She got in trouble. Uh, but so did I. Mommy at least knows that I was the instigator. Oh well, Mommy's catching on to us.

 

I've been bad

So, last week Mommy and Daddy went out and left Casey and me free to roam the house. Usually they put us in the laundry room, but sometimes we get to watch TV (ESPN, Animal Planet makes us bark!).
Mommy always puts everything away, the TV remotes (ate that), magazines (ate those), coasters (yummy), and shoes (love that leather). What Mommy failed to realized is that I am one sneaky beagle.
Casey and I slept on the couch for awhile, but I got bored to I went over to the kitchen, grabbed some paper sticking out of a basket and tore it to shreads! Mommy and Daddy yelled at me when they got home, but it was worth it.
So the next night, Mommy and Daddy went to a movie. Being the dumb humans that they are they left Casey and me out again. Mommy put everything away as usual, but she forgot the pound cake on the kitchen counter.
Soon after they left ,Casey started in with how hungry she was and how that cake looked sooooo good. I didn't want to get in trouble, but she made a good point.
I put my paws up on the counter and used my tongue to grab the bag with the pound cake in it. I also brought down a bag of blueberry muffins -- bonus! I ripped open both bags and Casey and I devoured the cake and all the muffins. Then we took a long nap, food coma!
Mommy and Daddy came home and saw some plastic bits on the floor and I heard Mommy say "Oh, no!" Then they saw more bag and the cake lable. Then I got in big trouble. Mommy said something about me being allergic to food and now I was going to throw up all night. But I fooled them, I felt fine!
Now Casey and I are banished to the laundry room. Silly humans, we know how to jump the gate!
