Happy 2nd Anniversary and Veteran's Day!

On this day, we celebrated Happy Veteran's Day and
Happy 2nd Anniversary for being a family with Abigail!

We began the tradition of going to a park with a picnic basket, seeing Abigail would enjoy a day of outting and we enjoy it with her! This year we went to Henderson Falls Park located in Toccoa Georgia.

My Dad and I on a bridge over tha water.

My Dad and I going through a covered bridge
over the water. Mommy is behind us!

This was here in the woods.. kinda looks like dog house, but we dunno. I was checking it out.

..just checking to see any of the messages were for me!
I got play in the playground. The sand felt
different but nice.

Here I am with my Dad!

Now, I'm with Mommy!

This was a staircase that went way down to
floor of the waterfall.

Mommy and I went down it. I didn't really like these stairs
but I was very brave to go back up without any help!

Here I am, with Dad again. There's the waterfall!
A better shot of the waterfall!
I am ready for the picnic!
I said I am ready for the picnic!

The lentil bean salad that Mommy made was delicious!
Mommy's Pumpkin pie disappeared! Yum!

Hey! It's not empty yet... why are you putting
it away?

Some exploring after the picnic! Nature smells, the perfume to a beagley nose!

... more sniffin'!

Keepin' an eye everything! So much to see!

The perfect day for me! ..with my family!
What more could I ask for? How about ...
....more food!!!!

Autumn has arrived!

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. ~Elizabeth Lawrence

...will the wind and rain stop, so I can play again?

...seems that will not be today.

...nothing better to do than snuggle up on the sofa and wait for a nicer day.

...I just might as well take a nap while I wait for warmer day.

Dangerous dog toy, please read and pass this on...

Please read for the sake of all dogs... after I read it, I immediately went to Abigail's toy basket and threw that toy away into the trash, luckily Abigail didn't care much for this toy! Please pass this information onto other Dog Owners!

Thank You,
a.k.a. Abigail's Mommy

Days of Abigail's Hot Summer

This is what happens to most beagles when it
is hot outside. They develope the "BPS",
Beagle Plopping Syndrom".

BPS begins when the outside temps rises
higher than 80 degrees F. Beagles begin to
hang their tongues out.

Then their legs become jello, unable to stay
standing. Therefore, they plop in place.

If they take a step or two, it is more than they
can handle due to jello'd legs and they plop...

Sometimes, they build up enough energy to
bring themselves up to the chair which is cooler
and more comfortable than the floor.

The arm of the chair becomes a promptu
chin rest, aiding in holding one's head up.

"It is tough being a beagle like me on the days
that may bring on the dreaded BPS!

Abigail's Summer Tea Luncheon

"I'm patiently waiting for my Mom to finish setting up our table out on our porch. There is even a spot for me to join in!"

"It is time to serve up the lunch!"

"MMMMmmmmm, cantalopes! Cucumber sandwiches! Citrus Green Tea! "

"Pardon my manners for standing up on my seat but this is really yummy! Gotta get every morsel!"

" I wonder why we don't do this all the time, it would be just fine with me if we did!"

"Citrus Green Tea is a delcious drink to finish off the meal with!"

"Ahhh this is the life, the beagle life that is!"

Finally Beagles get their due!

Now my concern is that many will view this dog as cute and adorable and will want one for their own. Don't get me wrong, I know they're cute and adorable but they are way more than that. If you seriously want to own a beagle, please educate yourself about the breed , Beagles. Abigail is my second Beagle and love the breed. The beagles are high energy dogs, and need constant guidance. There are many books out in the public to learn about this special breed or any other breeds for that matter. While considering od getting a beagle, please consider adopting on from many many "Beagle" rescue organzations. They are many beagles and other pure breds who already need a home. I have never regretted in adopting my beagles. I am doing my part one beagle at a time. I adopted our beagle named Quiggly from Seattle Beagle Rescue. Quiggly has gone onto Beagle Heaven. We got Abigail from Alcovy Pet Rescue. Both beagles are special in their own right!
All I ask is that, if you are thinking about getting a beagle, please consider the above and be honest... can you devote constant guidance and care to this dog, or any other kinds?

Here is a wonderful link to help you with somethings to consider about beagles.
