Bandit here....I'm in the dog house as they say. Today one of my dads played hookey from work and he took me and Bug out to a doggie park and for a walk. The dog park was great, even if no other doggies showed up. There were lots of new things to sniff. We then went for a long walk and went back home. Just when dad was taking Bug and I out of the car I "accidentally" slipped out of my harness and went on a freedom run. Now I really like to play chase and dad was great to indulge me, ALTHOUGH I don't think he had as much fun as I did. We ran all over the neighborhood all the while dragging Bug along with us. When dad finally caught me....well it wasn't pretty. So I'm TRYING to lay low for a while while dad cools off. When my other dad came home from work I got a long lecture and no amount of kissies would shut him up. Geeze I don't know what the big deal was, I love running around and checking things out. But I don't think I'm going to be able to do that again for a while. Dad said something about obedience training and lockdown. I don't know what that is but it doesn't sound good. I even tried the "look" with both dads and it didn't work. Dad says I'm trouble with a capital T. But I know they still love me. How can they not?

oh oh bandit...trouble with a capital T is never a good thing...you are very wise to lay low for a bit...but between you and me...if our moms and dads were in better shape...they would probably not mind running after us so much....i told mom if she stayed away from the treats...these runs would be so much more fun for her...

This is something we beagles are VERY good at--we're escape artists! And an artist must practice to perfect the art part, right? We should be celebrating a successful run here.

Ah, well, my mom reminds me of the time 5 of us took off when the wind blew the door open and how unhappy she was with our performance art!! She got all of us back which shows how much the humans really love us. Even out of shape they join us in the running free part--for a little while. Humans are quirky that way. Sometimes you just have to accept it.

love & wags,

OOPS! Just lay low for a while, Bandit! Your mom and dad love you but they need time to get over being petrified for you! Keep those puppy dog eyes fixed on their faces and you'll be just fine!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
