A few months ago I committed the ultimate sin of photographing the Beanster in one of her most private moments.
That photo made it into the latest edition of In Full Cry, the magazine produced by the UK’s Beagle Welfare charity, which happens to be Beanie’s favorite publication. I was rather pleased about that, but I don’t think Beanie appreciated having her toilet habits exposed in print.
Oh boy am I in trouble now…
There have since been repercussions: a slice of cake that was destined for my mouth ended up in Beanie’s, assorted mail has been torn up, and I’ve been subjected to a number of disruptive and often noisy visits when I’ve been working at my computer.
Biggles on the other hand would like nothing more than to have his chance at fame, even if it means compromising his modesty. All this attention for Beanie has hit him so hard he’s even considered relocating to another home.
Just seal me up and post me off to someone who’ll appreciate me properly..
Happily my little boy was dissuaded from this rather drastic course of action by a tummy tickle and a couple of chews. After all, every Beagle has his price.
