Beagle on Board

One of my favourite past times is going on car rides. I have to say that I don't get enough of it on a daily basis. I really should accompany dad in the car when he goes to work but then who would look after mum at home? Sigh, sometimes a beagle has to do what a beagle has to do! So, I sacrificed daily car rides and volunteered to stay at home with my work-at-home mum.

On weekends though, I sometimes get a treat and get to go on car rides with my humans. Sometimes we go off to visit gramps, or I tag along in the car when my humans have to run some quick errands at the nearby shops. Occassionally when my humans head out for a roti canai breakfast(Indian Muslim cuisine - fried pancake bread served with dahl or curry) or a quick "tai chau" dinner (literally translated from Chinese as 'big fry', it means servings of a variety of dishes served with rice), I get to ride in the car if they're certain they can find a car park near the restaurant. Lunch time is a no no for car rides because it's too hot for me to stay in the car when they're away. I'm very well trained to just sit patiently in the car whilst my humans buy stuff or stuff their faces.

This beagle waiting eagerly for mum & dad to get in the car and start the engine...

But a beagle on board doesn't mean that this beagle is off-duty. Beagle patrol takes place, even in the car. There are times, my human needs ear plugs as this beagle barks frantically at a motor cyclist that stopped too close to our car at a traffic light! What can I say? A beagle's job is never-ending.

If you like long drives you need to be with our Dog Dad. Key West, Florida to Cleveland, Ohio is a long ride.

Hi Kess, yes it is important to always be on Beagle Duty.
We find some humans come far too close to the car - good for you telling them off.
It is lovely to see your handsome self.
We have missed you

We love car rides - they are the most fun. Really does not matter where we go, just as long as we get to ride.

I heart car rides too! You are so good to sit nicely in the car...I will bark my head off at not only motorcyclists who drive past our car, but also people walking by (if our car is parked)...LOLL!

Sapphire has to be crated in the car. she'll leave drool marks on all 4 windows (if given the opportunity).

Kess, you are a Beagle role model!! You guard your car for your humans faithfully.

River said...

I don't like car rides. I am a stay at home beagle. I like reading about other beagles riding though. You look very alert.

love & wags,
