Beaglefest

The most beautiful weather ever coincided with the first week of summer vacation...but sadly, I was stuck inside the courthouse doing my civic duty. I was selected to serve on a jury! *Sigh* But luckily the trial is over now, and it is still sunny...this morning Arrow and I saw a group of parrots (again) in the backyard!

Arrow went to her first Beaglefest last weekend, and there were over 100 beagles at the party! Several beagles sported bandanas (perhaps for identification), and a few were even more dressed up...

This stylish beagle changed outfits several times! She actually appeared quite comfortable and unhindered walking around in her dress. Tee hee hee!

Arrow was more interested in sniffing than socializing, but she did meet up with Huxley, a beagle friend from the neighborhood.

Hi Huxley

Other (more sociable) beagles ran and played...

I hoped Arrow would join in the chases, but she was more interested in sniffing the entire park. We participated in the "Doesn't come when called" contest, but Arrow came when I called...how strange! Some beagles just stood there when called, or even walked the other way...tee hee hee!

Dan took photos at the party, but it was hard to capture all those beagles in action! We had a great time and hope Arrow did too...perhaps she will be more sociable next time!

I just found your pix while Googling myself. Hey, you know us dogs do that all the time. Are we excited about "Underdog" or what? See you at Haas sometime soon.
