Who We Are

It's From Our Scottish Beagle Buddies!

Tail wags, readers!  It's me - Stormy.  We've been wanting to post about a lovely package we received from that fab four Gabbi, Rosie, Alfie and Snoop - collectively known as theDughallmor Beagles.  Mom's been trying to get "good" pictures of us enjoying the treats or playing with the toys, but ... well ... let's just say we've been rather Siberian about that.  Ha roo roo roo!  Here's what we've got, though.

Here I am, checking out the package:

Oooh!  It's from the Dughallmor Beagles!

I knew right away it was from them; I could smell Beagles!  The package was full of lovely (and tasty!) treats, and a couple of toys.  How very kind of Alfie, Rosie, Gabbi and Snoop!  

Mom let Zim check out the toys and he really liked this one:

Wowzers!  How cool is that?!?!

He had to go on Guard Duty, though, and said maybe Ammy could play with it until his shift was over.  (The redheads are really cool about stuff like that.)  Here she is:

Fa la la la la la la...

Check out her little feety-feet in this one:

...la la la la la la la...

Is she cute enough?  She reminds me of our dear little friend Cornelia Marie there.  Or perhaps a Monterey sea otter, cracking open an abalone shell on her belly.  Oh... speaking of cracking open...

...la la ... OOPS!

Ooh, Mom!  Wait.  I ... err ...

That's right.  In less time than it too me to dictate this post, The Jaws of Steel struck again!

I have no idea how that happened.

Needless to say, Zim got to play with the other toy our Beagle buddies sent us.  Mom's camera batteries were too low to take good pictures, but we'll catch him next time.  Until then - many, many thanks to the Dughallmor Beagles and their mom!

Tail wags,

PS:  What?  You're wondering where Dave was.  Well, he's been very busy in the Studio lately.  Here's a look:

Thanks for asking about me!

Dave works reallllllll hard down there.  You can see he's exhausted himself!

  5. Don't you love how the jaws of steel strike right as a new toy arrives? *sigh*

  6. Very nice pressies from the Beagles and very nice photos too. Glad those jaws of steel know just what they can exercise on and what they should leave alone. Nice hard work from Dave too.

  9. oh how lovely, such nice presents from the D. Beagles!

    I certainly would like to meet them one day!


    I am concerned for Dave, he must take it more easy you know, relax a bit, tell him it is not good for his health to be so stressed out.

    He must take some time out, for relaxation etc.

    I hate to think of him so frazzled with his work.

    We love the feety-feet

  11. Obviously that toy just wasn't built to Jaws of Steel standards. Never mind.

  12. Ammy - we are convinced it was caused by the stress of seeing us take our baths. Thanks for the offer of refuge. If it ever happens again, listen for the sound of 24 paws scrambling under your table.

    P.S. - Dave - Slow down buddy.

  13. Ammy, you are so cute playing with that toy! And my what strong jaws you have! Dave, it's good to see that you have a pillow for that handsome head of yours when you rest from all your work!

  14. Furry sweet of those beagle to send wooo a goodie pack! Ammy looks soooooo cute, just adorable!!! (Jack thinks toys are for disassembling too.) And Dave, you sweet boy, I love your pillow, got room for two?


  15. Her Indian name can be "Destroyer of Many Toys"!


  16. Oh-oh!
    She wanted to make more pieces to share with you all!
    Good job!
    Kisses and hugs

  17. What a fun toy....it's no fun unless you chew it up. ;) Cool flag pillow too! ;)
