Snowbeagle

Take a herd of galloping otters, a flagon of molten chocolate, a prime-ministerial Maxine McKew, combine 'em, and still you ain't got a cocktail as downright pleasing as this one.


It's mon cheri, le Wilbur, caught in a rare moment of not-sleeping-on-the-couch-ness, coupled with my all time favourite form o' precipitation.


The only thing better than a dog in snow is snow in a dog in snow. If anyone's the dog for the snow-eating job, Wilb's that dog.


"You gonna throw that snowball? Are you? Because I'll be ready. Just watch me."


Here I narrowly missed obtaining graphic evidence of Wilbur's al fresco micturation prowess. You'll just have to take my word for it. He's got prowess. In spades.

That's certainly some perspicacious participation in premicturation amongst the precipitation, even if I do say so myself.

Is it snowing there still?!

Wilbur's adorable... :]

Ten points to you, Alextricity, for perceptiveness above and beyond the course requirements. Wilbur IS adorable. Vraiment! Not snowing as we speak, but I wouldn't put it past the weather to turn on a bit more snow before the Winter's out.

Tim, I can't help suspecting that the abundance of pee in your comment is deliberate.

Ppppppppossibly.

That dog is the cutest thing alive.

Audrey, you, clearly, are a person of great insight. Not only is that dog the cutest thing alive, he is also wise, dignified, and lots of help round the house.

I love it when dogs get those grey furs gathering around the top of the snout, how old is he?
My partner and I would love to get a Beagle one day, so much so that we already have the perfect name all picked out. It's all just passing time till we can afford a house and backyard really. Sigh.

He's 7, settling down to a sedate middle-age. He's the loveliest person - really gentle, invariably friendly, very fond of food. He doesn't like being left at home alone, though, and has done his best to chew through a couple of doors to prove it. Unless there's going to be someone home a lot (this guy lives with my retired parents), or you have two, they can get pretty miserable. Same with most dogs, I suppose. They like having their friends around.

That dog looks so smart I bet he could write his name in the snow or dot the i.

Excellent picture Lex (the first one especially), compliments to both model and photographer.

Ha! Hello Mloclam! What can I say? You're the world's finest beagle-wrangler. xoxox, lexi.

Thanks, HT. Any credit for those photos goes straight to the pupski.

Jahteh, against my better judgement I'm going to assume that comment was nothing to do with the dog's aforementioned urinary skills.
