Four Legged Pal

  • Beanie’s Great Balaclava Adventure

    Our Easter weekend was spent making a very early morning visit to our favorite mountain: The Cobbler, or Ben Arthur as it is also known. We never tire of it; it has everything you could want from a hillwalk if you’ve got two pesky Beagles: a safe, easy-to-follow route that is nevertheless a...
  • The Best April Fool Gag I’ve Ever Seen..

    Just got this in my email: Fetch, the new “poofume” for dogs. The video they’ve made for it is just brilliant. If this was a real product, I know one little furry girl who’d be nicking my credit card and placing an order!
  • Lost At Sea

    Whenever I get talking to an owner of a “normal” dog (ie. non-Beagle) and start telling them about all our misadventures (well a few of them, because there have been so many), they never seem to get just how naughty Beanie & Biggles are. “Yeah, my dog did that once too”. Oh really? But does [...
  • The Most Expensive Biscuits

    Around this time of year we take Beanie & Biggles on a special car ride to sample the very best dog biscuits that money can buy. These things are so special and in such high demand that there is a limit of three biscuits per furry person, at a cost of around 80. Even at […]
  • Medicinal Bottoms

    Breathe it all in Dad, it’s good for you… I realize that the subject of flatulence comes up pretty regularly in my posts, but in my defense it is a core Beagle pastime, and what’s more there’s research suggesting that it’s actually good you:...
  • Bum End No More?

    Bum snuggles are dead easy to get in our house. For example, this morning in bed I had a big white bum in my armpit, and all I had to do to get this was open Biggles’ crate, wait for him to trot over to my side of the bed, and lift the covers a […]
  • Weather Apocalypse

    If the storms we had before Christmas can be called a “weather bomb”, then what we’re currently enduring has to be a “weather nuke”. Here’s what nearby Troon looked like at high tide the other night: Of course the thing about having doggies – especially doggies that like their exercise – is that...
  • Christmas 2014

    Why is it that someone always has to stick their tongue out for the group photo? We’ve had some seriously rough weather over the last few weeks. It’s been so bad TV presenters have been using the term “weather bomb”, shoppers have been evacuated from the local supermarket by flood rescue...
  • How (Not) To Treat A Calf Injury

    Every now and then one of my body parts decides it’s had enough and goes on strike. At the start of the year it was my shoulder, but over the last month it’s been my right calf that’s rebelled. I struggled on with it for a bit, as I tend to do, until eventually it […]
  • Help! The Whole World’s Gone Furry!

    The weather’s turning wintery and both Beanie & Biggles have decided to jettison their warm-weather romper suits. Now I know that Beagles are only relatively small dogs with short hair but let me tell you, their discarded fur is everywhere. Not so long ago we bought a new vacuum cleaner – one...
