My older beagle turned 12 today. It is getting hard to remember what it was like when he had energy and didn't sleep 23 1/2 hours out of every day. I did manage to get him motivated to do a trick or two.
Okay, so maybe only one trick on his birthday - begging, which is at the top of his list for things he likes to do.
This was his look when I told him he had to wear that birthday hat - not at all thrilled.
He then relented and agreed to the hat.
And this was his reward - his Kong stuffed with peanut butter and kibble. Here's hoping for a another good year ahead for my boy, Freckles....
I left a career as an insurance underwriter back in 1993 to stay at home with my kids and I have never once looked back. I've been fortunate to find a job that I can do from home and have done so for the last 16 years.
I am blessed with a great husband and two wonderful kids. Life doesn't get any better than that...well, throw in a beagle or two and it is a smidge better!
A love of our faith is #1 in our home and always will be.
