Doggie Monday

John Morgan remarked that Tabby hasn't been featured much on the blog. That's because in warmer weather, he stays out most of the time. He still comes in and likes to eat at his feeding station, but for the most part, he's outside, especially at night. John said, "You mean he's catting around?" Hahahaha
When it gets colder, Tabby comes in at bedtime. It takes some getting used to again. But here he is:
So cute with his paw over his eyes!
I pulled out the Ralph Lauren mini-comforter for the meditation chair. Of course, that's just an invitation to get more nesty:

Buddy isn't the only one who likes the duvet:

With Tabby inside more, Buddy has to adjust:

Altho, even for a beagle, he is not too thrilled:

Tabby ignored him with a Groom Fest. Because he's a cat.


But eventually:

Later . . . 
Whatchya lookin' at, Buddy?
 I moved the duvet onto the T.U. rug when I was doing my Magnolia May video, and left it there:

And here's Buddy:

Reggie says hullo:

Speaking of Reggie, here he is at the LR window:

 And back to the office:

 Bingo likes it, too!

Here was Bingo, during the shoot:

See the pile in the background? Those are all the LAYERS I
keep on the meditation chair to protect it from dog & cat hair, etc.
I was walking down the hallway and glanced in the bedroom to see this:

Buddy doesn't usually hang out on the T.U. rug in the bedroom. He trots up the beagle/cat steps and snuggles into bed. So, why is he down below?


Back in the office:
Get off the desk! But first, lemme take a picture!

Whatchya got there, Buddy?
Hey! My mini-post-it note pad?! Gimme that! But first, lemme take a picture!

And because I was on the floor taking a photo, Bingo was all ready for belly rubs!

EnJOYing Autumn Daze

I was walking in the yard and came upon this:
Someone (a.k.a. Buddy!) absconded with a post-it note pad! NAUGHTY!

Speaking of . . . 

The shade is encroaching, but he stays basking in the sun as long as he can!

We had another breakthru this week with Reggie. He played with Bingo's Wobbler! He's always been cautious around it, but he was in the hallway knocking it over. I was taking a nap at the time, but I couldn't be annoyed. So, proud of him!  Other than that, it's been a rather uneventful week. Besides the post-it note carnage, I mean. 
Sunday night:
Reggie & Bingo.
 And here's Buddy:
Boy, was he snoring!
HAPPY Monday!  :-)

Leaves Are Leaving

We are in the middle of Autumn now, having had our first frost on Saturday night. I love these crisp, cool days!  Il fait frais!
Here's Buddy in a patch of sunlight.

Reggie playing with a frisbee disk that the vet gave him:

Buddy, back up against the fence, snoozing in the sun:

ROO-ROO! at the neighbor dogs. Bingo doesn't care.

A few back yard pix:

Here's Reggie, still not fond of the camera!

Here are Reggie & Buddy rompin' & playin':

I have to take these photos thru the kitchen window or Reggie stops. Even here, he heard the camera going clicky-click and off he goes:

Buddy says, "Where ya goin?" 

Buddy in the leaves:

"What's this?"

Bingo, seeing something:

 Another shot of Buddy in the sun:
Because we don't have enough of those!
Hullo Reggie:
My sweet boy.  :-)
Pizza Box

I put this is the dog's toy box:
Buddy was the first to retrieve it.

I'd like to think he's thinking, "Thank you" here:

but I think he might be thinking, "Mine" or "I want more."

This week's Frog Pose brought to you by the telephoto lens and the lazy photographer:


Reggie trots by Bingo:

Sunny days . . . 


See this tulip poplar tree?

You prolly can't see the squirrel:

 Two squirrels were chasing each other around and around the tree . . . and:

And then the squirrels noticed the beagle and managed to run across the branches of three other trees to get out of the yard. Here's the disappointed beagle:
"Wait, what? Where are ya goin'?"
Bingo says, "They went thatta way."

Here's Buddy:
"I'll go investigate."
Bingo, in one of her spots:
Overlooking her domain.
And then she's in another spot:

And here's Reggie again:

Another few pix of Buddy in the leaves:

He's adept at finding the sunny patches.  :-)

Surveying the perimeter:


Here we are in the office:
Buddy finds a new empty tissue box in his toy box.

Here's Bingo, ready for belly rubs!

Reggie walks in:
"What's going on?"
 In The Living Room

I walked into the LR to see this:
AND I was able to get a photo! Progress for
Reggie. Buddy has been so good for him. :-)
 This is my only photo from a RoRo vizzie:
15 minutes of Bill Nye before his drum lesson.
(Rowan's, not Buddy's, in case that wasn't clear).
 Another Reggie-Buddy Sofa Fest, but Reggie jumped down before I could get the photo:

But . . . 

And getting down.
One day, I'll walk in and sit down next to him!
 Sunday night, bed time:

We are in the winter duvet, now. Somehow, Buddy managed to unbutton the duvet! This morning, Reggie woke me up, as per usual, with his, "Wake up and feed me." I got up but Buddy stayed in bed. He usually gets up when I do. I went to the kitchen and took the lid off the dog food. Still no Buddy. I fed Bingo; no Buddy. I fed  Reggie; no Buddy! As I'm walking back to the dog food, I hear Buddy rustle from under the covers and jump off the bed. He knows the food routine: Bingo, Reggie, Buddy. He was waiting until it was his turn! 

After breakfast, I walk into the bedroom to see this:

He went back to bed!

Friday night, Buddy fell asleep with his head cradled in my arm, paws stretched across my chest. I fell asleep with him snoring in my ear. When I woke up, I was amazed that he had slept like that all night. He was still in my arm . . . except as I became more awake, I realized that it was not his head resting in the crook of my arm! He had turned himself around. Ha!  HAPPY MONDAY!  :-)
