Pardon My Behavior – Again

April 3, 2011

Dogs, Pets, ZArchive (Old Blog)

Pardon (from Wiktionary) – Forgiveness for an offence.

My beagle’s motto is that it is easier to ask forgiveness than permission.  This applies to every area of his life, from woo-wooing in the yard to the constant demands to be let in and out, and of course, expecting treats regardless of his behavior. 

He does usually get a pardon – who can resist those beagle eyes?  So expressive, so warm, so mesmerizing.  Of course, by the end of the day it’s worn a little thin, but he still thinks the next pardon will come anyhow. 

And notice too the tufts of fur between his toes – this picture really highlights that. 

Word for tomorrow – WIZARD.  If you prefer to work ahead, see the list for the week under “A Word A Day”.

    The eyes, the ears, & yes the nose between those tufted paws — how could you not grant a pardon to this guy?

      That’s why he keeps getting away with it! He is a good dog though – beagle love is subtle. He won’t crawl in my lap to be cuddled, but he will be with me everywhere I go.

        I didn’t know that about beagles. Mocha is part beagle, part terrier, so I’m glad to know that about her “subtle-y” loving me.

          Our Vizla is very out there with his love – hence the nickname Velcro boy. In many ways though, I think the beagle loves me more. But it took a while to appreciate that he wasn’t standoffish, he just wasn’t going to be attached to my hip.

    So precious. Reminds me of my dog Mocha, who’s part beagle. Their eyes seem directly linked to their souls, hearts…and minds.

    love ’em…hugmamma. ;)
