5am comes far too early after a crappy nights sleep...no reason for my bad night, I just couldn't sleep.
jake got into trouble twice last evening...both times over the dried food bowls...once with angel, once with tina..BAD DOG!!!
both big piss offs for me. big mistakes jake...do not ever be a dickhead around my frail dogs.
he does not like it when I am pissed at him...big, sucky, please still love me baby. I did eventually forgive and forget but he had to suffer the realization that I can and will shut all beagle loving feelings off the second one of the little ones is frightened and upset.
anyway, I take this as a good sign, copper never really cared in the least if I was mad at him.
oh..except the day of the stolen turkey, he cared then.
ah...a memory more than 10 yrs old.
copper had opened the fridge and made off with the left over turkey from thanksgiving the day before. I chased that fat thieving bugger all over the back yard but I did get it back. I grabbed it and went back into the house and shut the door on the little bastard. and while he sat in disbelief watching and staring in thru the sliding glass doors...I fed the entire thing to all of the other dogs.
I am pretty sure his greedy little beagle heart was actually breaking.
jake is a much easier to deal with beagle than copper, but he does have that one similar issue...the beagle's Must. Have. All. Food. belly.
honestly..beagles are THE food scrooge of the K9 set...the gloves are off if there is even a remote chance of scoring a mouthful of something.
wow... i love the Copper stories.
