LOVE NOTE FOR A BEAGLE


dearest leila girl,

thank you ever so for letting us watch you this week. didn't we have a lovely time?

thank you kindly for the thoughtful souvenirs you left us (all your doggie hairs). we will cherish them always. they make my baby sneeze.

thank you for that one time when i really only meant to walk you around the block, but instead you took me on a grand tour of central park. you are so terribly (i mean wonderfully) stubborn. that was a very pleasant walk, once the first mile was over and you had broken my will. 

brandon says he will miss how daintily you did not pee on your paws. could you teach that to my boys? especially the black one.

thank you for coming with us on our family powwow to our spot on the grass the other day, and for enjoying that nice drunk guy with us ("i'm gay? . . .  so i don't have kidssszzzzzz, i have caaaaaaatsss. my name is dougggg.") he was nice though, wasn't he?

lastly, thank you for giving my boys the chance to be such gentlemen. they sure do love having a lady around to dote on.

loves and hugs and kissy-kissies,
auntie natalie & big uncle brandon

  3. Haha! Love this!! Aren't beagles awful (I mean, awesome)? I'm on my second beagle now... what is wrong with me??

    Both of those photos could be of my husband. He can routinely be found lying facedown on the floor with the dog sitting on his back, and yeah, the holes in the socks, totally him...

  4. I just giggled my way through the whole post, and the hole-y (!!) sock just made my day, so I had to mention it. :) thanks for sharing.

  6. Oh, sweet Leila. You are NOT giving me hope that my 2 year old beagle will calm down and not try and convince me to go on 5 mile walks when I come home from work and I'm exhausted. But truth? I can't wait for the dainty gray beagle distinguished look to come in. And maybe for you to settle down. And stop trying to have howling discussions with me at 5am. Did Leila do that? Because a beagle in an apartment in my brain is like... uh... brain fart on trying to come up with opposites.

    is the holbs's name really brandon? somehow I'm having a hard time accepting that...he doesn't look like a brandon...but then, what do brandons look like?

    i guess my answer to that question is the holbs, if brandon is, in fact, his real name.

  12. Natalie,

    You really are the funniest blogger out there. Honestly one of the most adorable personalities in the "blogosphere" (or whatever they call it...). I don't comment on blogs that often but I just think you're pretty great. So there you have it. P.S. - Your family is pretty cute too. All 5.

  16. I think The Holbs should have bought some socks at Century 21 while he was buying shoes. :-)

    But wait, isn't Century 21 a house selling company?
