Oh, I’m just doing it for the treats.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Motion.”
A typical beagle walk is always described as: nose to the ground, and sniff as many things as possible in one single walk!
Sometimes, if you get lucky, you might even find a discarded piece of rotten but edible morsel lying on the ground just waiting, no, calling out to be picked up and chomped on. But all must be done with careful caution that the human doesn’t see it!
Ohh the perks of being part of a local beagle community! We have gatherings and meet-ups once in a while and I’m glad to be part of the Pet Fiesta beagle meet-up!
Unfortunately my human was too busy to take any photos (you know how chaotic it gets when we beagles get together, right?), so here are some pictures courtesy of our other beagle friends!!
Although we were there for just less than an hour, we were exhausted! The weather was freakin hot and there was just sooooo much sniffing butts to do!
And I finally got to meet some of my beagle friends whom I’ve only ever met through Facebook 😀 Well, you know beagles warm up to each other pretty easily with just a simple butt sniff to know what the other beagle had for dinner last night 🙂
Hi guys! It’s me the smelly beagle again after another long break from my blogging career. Boy, it sure is difficult to type on human keyboards with my big fat paws!
There’s a new dog park in town and we were there a couple of weeks back for the soft opening! Entrance is free for now, but heard that they’re charging an entrance fee soon.
The dog park is part of the pet hotel and dog training facility by G-Pet.com. My humans brought me and my sister Spring there for a short run.
Hurray to a new dog park in town! I hope my humans continue to bring me there to meet new friends. Although I didn’t quite like the bunch of boy poodles who shamelessly ganged up to kiss me!! Ugh, boys!!
The facility also houses cageless pet boarding rooms and a dog training ground. Didn’t manage to get a tour around the place though. Maybe next time!
I know I have been missing for more than half a year since my last post (no thanks to my human), but I’m back in this spanking new year and my human promises to give me back my blogging job with a higher treats salary!
Hey yo, I was kidding about the salary! You gonna let me in now??
Christmas came and went….. I got a present from an anonymous secret santa! Can you guess what it is….
It’s a mineral spa shampoo set! Geez….humans must think that I stink a lot….well I ain’t having no spa shower time! Hate shower time!
Oh and I so wanted to share about the beagle gathering we had 2 months ago! My very first beagle meet up! There were 12 of us! Our humans were worried about the chaos of having 12 beagles in the same room with human food and all….. to their surprise, everyone was well behaved (well of course), including the humans. The cafe manager was very very pleased with us and invited us back for another doggy party. I’m sure you are all dying to see pictures of what havoc 12 beagles could have wreaked.
Hello, yup that’s me asking for a treat and scratching the thigh of a pretty human.
Can you spot me waiting for a treat?
That’s my friend Hugo who got most of the treats just because he could do a bunny sit!! So unfair.
By now you would have figured that the only way to take photo of so many beagles is to get the treats ready. All our other photos ended up with blurry heads and blurry butts! Having said that, my human is an awful photographer, but here’s a nice shot from one of our beagle group members….
Can you see all of us in here? I hope to attend more beagle gatherings and meet all my beagle buddies again! My humans can’t complain about me being fat anymore because now they have seen the Real Fat Beagle. My 2 friends, April and Hiro…..they both weigh 20kg. See, I’m not fat after all….compared to those 2. So that’s basically the highlights of my 2014.
So, how did the new year go? I spent new year eve in pain! I hurt my paw and my human noticed I was limping on my right hind leg when she got home on new year eve. All the clinics were closed so they had to take me to the 24 hour animal hospital in the city. Doc said there was no fracture or wound so I most probably stepped on something blunt. It took 2 men to hold me down on my back while he inspected my leg. Feisty little beagle, yup….that’s me!
Not happy with the cone of shame that’s obviously too small. I’m okay now after taking the anti-inflammatory meds.
However, I think I’m gonna pretend to be sick just to get more treats from the humans…..do you think it will work?
