It's my day...

Remember the phrase "Every dog has its day"? Well, tomorrow is my day - that's right. It's my birthday. This beagle has lived 6 glorious years and look forward to beginning my 7th year tomorrow. To celebrate my birthday, I thought it would be fun to see how many Dog series phrases I could weave into today's and tomorrow's post.

My birthday celebration started on Sunday afternoon. After a couple of weeks of raining cats and dogs, the dog star is shining real bright these days and dog days are here again. We headed into the hills for a hike on this beautiful sunny afternoon. I am estatic coz I get to do what a beagle does best - go on a hunting mode. After all, that is what working like a dog should be - working on what we love best. My humans were grateful we didn't encounter any horses on our afternoon jaunt. They remember all too clearly my reaction to those giant 4-legged beasts. They wanted to avoid a fighting like cats and dogs scenario with me straining against my harness, barking frantically at the horses.

We did however encounter a long black snake which scared mum witless! She was happily jogging ahead of us when she saw the snake slithering in front! I wonder who was more frightened - mum or the snake (who was probably just sunning itself until we disturbed its sun-tanning session). My humans also saw red when they came across rubbish on the slopes of the hill. How could such a lovely natural spot have gone to the dogs?.

After the long walk, this beagle was grateful for the phrase "Let sleeping dogs lie" (the beagle version) as I caught some much needed ZZZs!

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post and see how I celebrated my birthday!

Kess, your birthday and Cookie's birthday are close to each other! Cookie is turning eight this Friday. I am now thinking about birthday presents to give him. As he doesn't play with toys, something he can eat is likely to be the only option! I wonder what you will get on your birthday... :-)
