Actions...and consequences...

This is the beagle in action...

Digging the muddy garden when my humans are out. Hey, this beagle only wanted to have some fun

Trying to climb the wall when my humans are out. Check out the muddy beagle paw prints on my humans' newly painted garden wall.

This is the beagle facing the consequences of her actions...

Check out the mournful look on my face as I face bath time to get rid of the mud mask on my nose and mouth (my humans didn't buy the facial argument - but hey, human ladies pay good money for mud masks and I get it free from the garden...)

This is the beagle trying to undo the effects of the bath by rolling on the floor (my humans were not pleased!)

Having a game of tug of war over the bath towel with my human. Probably the most fun part of bath time. Check out those paw prints on the wooden gate. Yeah...part of my high jump actions when my humans are out.

Finally, a happy and mud-free beagle (at least until my humans go out next!)

"No beagle ever did, or ever will escape the consequences of her choices" (at least not if she belongs to my humans)
paraphrased from a quote by Alfred A. Montapert

You're lucky you're able to go into the garden, Kess...we err, don't really have a garden at our house, so Mom didn't have to worry about me getting myself dirty. LOL! But, I always manage to get myself wet from playing with my water bowl...hehe! What's with humans and a bit of dirty, right?

Just an average day in the life of a beagle then lol! My mam says my face looks mournful all of ther time but even worse at bathtime. it's all thayt water - what can I say??!!!

Martha said...

Kess, we cannot understand this human obsession with cleanliness!
Being hounds we appreciate the need to be stinky and dirty - looks like you are working on getting back into a satisfactory hound condition.
love and kisses

I loved what you had defended yourself: "human ladies pay good money for mud masks and I get it free from the garden...
How clever, my smarty beagle!
Gosh, I've been absent too long, I'm bad but I'm back!
I miss you so much, I want to promise that I visit your blog at least once a week and blog more frequently.
I'll come back to see you soon.
(You don't notice that I have been out a long while, do you? (choking back tears! sob sob!)
Love ya lots!

You just wanted to have some fun, right?? Sorry about your bath. Great pictures!

The best thing about a bath --or getting wet in the rain -- is playing tug-a-dog with the turkish towel when our mom goes to dry us off!

Second best is shaking water all over the plac and then rubbing our bodies against all the walls we can find to get rid of those last drops of moisture.

Go Beagle, Go!!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry
