Redeployment Is Not An Option

That’s It, No More Reading The Comics For You!

Granted, she hasn’t learned how to lie on her back and have her ears flop over the roof peak, but I haven’t had a chance to finish the A-frame roof yet.  I built this doghouse for the NukeBeagles before we went out of town so they’d have some respite from the rain.  I wasn’t able to finish the roof before we left, so they got a scrap wood flat roof in the meantime.  Penny took full advantage of the new vantage point for squirrel reconnaissance.  If she asks for a typewriter then I’ll know that Snoopy is definitely her father.


Not that she’s opposed to the digs inside, mind you; either will do just fine for her.  Her brother Buddy would just as soon live on that couch being paw fed squirrel kabobs and kibble all day by Poodles in french maids outfits.  Melisa over at Suburban Scrawl can attest to the behavior of rogue Beagles.  I think we got the Bill and Hillary of the litter; take all they can and point the paw at the other one when they get in trouble.  Buddy once said: “I did NOT have edible relations with that squirrel; Ms. Luther.”  I hear the Afghan hounds are gathering milkbones by the millions to help build his Memorial Library.  Penny, on the other hand, just wants to be President one day.

    I certainly can!!!

    I know it will never happen, but I like to imagine our dogs having a playdate one day. Can you just imagine the trouble they could cause?

    The other night we were watching “Charlie Brown Christmas” and at one point Jim looked at me and said, “Do you realize that you laugh the loudest at the Snoopy parts?”


    You know when Snoopy is sitting up on his house (the one that has a roof, by the way), looking down like a vulture? Roxie can imitate that perfectly. Although she doesn’t know she’s imitating Snoopy.

    Or does she???

    (NukeDad) A dog-date? My yard couldn’t handle it. Penny can do the vulture thing too.

    I tell mine when taking her in from the rain, “Damn you smell like a wet dawg.”

    (NukeDad) Your powers of observation astound me. ;)

    “edible relations with that squirrel”, coffee shot out my nose.

    (NukeDad) Sorry. You know, from the side Buddy kinda looks like Bubba a little bit.

    Used to live next door to a beagle. Noisiest dogs I’ve ever heard. Totally destroyed my illusion of Snoopy. Love the look of a beagle though. Seems like a great family dog. Can I get the Barrack and Michelle ones?

    (NukeDad) ObamaBeagles? The NukeBeagles are MUCH cuter. And more fiscally conservative. ;)

    Your beagle kicks ass! I love beagles. I had one named “Pokey” growing up, whom we named because she was slow when we brought her home, since she’d just been spayed. Later, she became quite quick, but “Peppy” or “Fast Freaky Dog” didn’t sound like a good name, so we left her “Pokey.”

    (NukeDad) In El Paso, they would have named your dog “Tortuga”-The Turtle. “The Quickster” might have been cool…

    Your Penny reminds me of my Dani girl… I miss her so much

    (NukeDad) They definitely pull at your heart strings, don’t they? And, ocassionally, your shoestrings.
