Mwah ha ha woof.
This beagle was left behind at home in Tennessee while his people went off to buy tacos. Where I come from, he would merely have spent the day gnawing the front door.* Americanian beagles, however, are invigorated in tooth and claw by the principles of life, liberty and the Americanian way, and they will not be content with gnawing down a single door. Nothing less than complete and utter domestic destruction will satisfy their desire for justice: you eat taco without me? I eat house without you.
*This is true. Wilbur Harlot has attacked two separate doors in two separate houses. When they were trying to sell their house in Sydvillea, my parents had to send off by mail for a spray-on gnaw-repellant called "Bitter Yuck".
