The Bays of our Lives

Sometimes living here with all these dogs is a soap opera. Let me share -

  • Pink Floyd is always hungry and when he is hungry, he sounds like a gruff foghorn; if he is not hungry, he has put his tennis ball out of reach and needs assistance. Often.  He is quite chatty, too, when he's working on his nest...for a long time. 
  • Peanut has moved to Cyrano's crate and pad. Cyrano is not happy so he moved to Annie Beagle's crate and pad. Annie doesn't much care - whew!
  • Molly T. is now "en gard" for her or any tennis ball which, in her wee mind, PF may purloin. Witchy, witchy, witchy....
  • Walter Brennan, he who in the past was an example of crating decorum, will now bust out of his large feeding crate if I don't latch top and bottom. I don't know why. 
  • Clementine went back to the prison program; Justus is relieved - not forever, Mr. J. 
  • Danny Quinn, blue eyed Doxie charmer, sleeps in my lap emitting noxious farts. 
  • It is cold and raining outside with temps into the teens (F) tonight; I have fresh water with orangey Nature's Miracle in preparation for multiple "accidents." Sigh - I could work harder on house training. 

Simply a doggy family - most times I laugh and sometimes chuckle to myself as I observe and intervene (PF, why do you insist on putting that ball under the bookcase?).  Currently, we are all copacetic and for that I'm thankful :). 


  1. from Mom Beaglebratz - Copaceti? You listed what, 6 or 7 Hounds - I almost lost count. And they are all in the house now? Are they asleep or drugged out?

    Actually, I would love to have 1 or 2 more but due to finances and lack of space, indoors and out, Shiloh'n Shasta are all I can handle for now. And that copacetic home you have - you know it won't last once the Hounds wake. I love to hear my Beagles bay - Shiloh thinks he is God's gift to the hunter and little sis Shasta tries hard to match his bay but it just ain't happening for which I am sure the neighbors are grateful for. By the way, we are sorta neighbors - we live in Topeka, KS.

  3. BOL! I love the title of your post!! That says it all! A day in the life...I'm sure you have your times but how can you not sit back and laugh! Thanks for the episode of "The Bays of Our Lives"! I still say, there's nothing funnier than a fart!

  4. It's almost like the dogs have their own script writers to keep you (and your readers) entertained.

  5. Sounds like the hounds are much better behaved than most soap opera characters. :)

  6. Wow, it sounds like quite an adventure living in your house!

    We'd love to feature you on Pet Blogs United sometime. If you're interested you can e-mail us at PBU at comcast dot net.
