Summer's here, and it isn't all fun and naps
|I'm on the left, Jade is at the back, Daisy Mae is in the middle and Colonel Oliver North is on the right, Jade always gets a little goofy and in this picture has one of her ears in curlers (turned back).|
It was a long, hard winter, one that kept going on and on and on. Of course, being the spoiled Beagles we are, it doesn't much matter. We're indoor dogs, ones that are used to sleeping on couches, recliners and beds. We very seldom have to resort to sleeping on the floor.
|The best part of napping in this house is that mom and pop provide lots of blankets, most of them fleece, for us to snuggle in or lay on top of. I prefer being under the blankets myself.|
Some would say that cats have servants, or at least that's what cats think. They're not exactly right. Dogs have servants, too. We here at the Bogan/Hobbs house like to give back to our humans, unlike cats who are only in it for what they can get. We give love and companionship back to mom and pop.
|But Jade is sometimes caught in very strange positions. Mom piles some of the Beagle beds up and Jade thinks she's a princess and has to lay at the top. Now and then they fall over and she slides down behind them.|
But now both are gone, on vacation. When will they come back to us? For Jade and me, it doesn't matter as long as there's someone here to feed, pet us, give us our treats and let us in and out when we want to go. Daisy Mae is a wimp and misses them. Colonel Oliver North gets all whacked out of shape cuz he's a nervous kind of pissant. Maybe I'll cut him a break. He's on meds because he has bronchial pneumonia. Who knew we dogs could get pneumonia?
