How do you spend your mondays? 🐶
sometimes, monday sneaks up on me when i'm least expecting it... sort of like a sneeze 🙈
i bury my head with my paws and hide my eyes with my ears... 🙉
being a medium sized hound with large sized ears, this seems like a simple and sensible thing to do 🤔
and i am a simple hound, after all.
i usually spend my mondays catching up on snoozes before tending to any beagling i may have missed on the weekend. today's beagling session involved running off with humum's hairbrush and beagling it into three separate pieces! 🤗
it was the first hairbrush i'd beagled. it's hard not to feel a little proud of myself 🙃😂
Today i learnt the valuable lesson of always keeping check of where my tail is.
it seems silly so worry about something like a tail, but without it, how would i wag on my walks? 🤔
and so back to my story of my tail. simply put, it nearly got ran over by a cyclist! 😳
i was waiting to cross the road and having a casual sniff of the lamp post when a lycra wearing cyclist whizzed past from out of nowhere 🚴
the humans certainly didn't want me to become a squeagle... because friends, that is a squashed beagle...
and so they pulled me in close to them to sit and wait.
as the cyclist whizzed behind me i just happened to see my tail was sticking out 🙈
i jumped up quick as a flash!
and even though the humans said 'ludo, sit!' i didn't care because without my quick thinking, my tail might be looking much less waggy tonight 🐶
as i nestle in for a snooze, i'm keeping my tail right where i can see it 🙄
It's been a good day to have a good day here in ludoland!🤗
if you saw my story, you'll know that i was the happiest hound in town this morning when i spotted my lost bone lying under a tree while out on my walk. i picked it up and this time i didn't let it go until i had it safely back at home in my pondering spot! 🐶
and then, a little while later, i got to help human dad with the bbq! i monitored the ground at all times for anything that might drop 🙊
and it doesn't stop there! just now i also saw some freshly cut carrots in the freezer! 🥕🥕🥕
this means if i'm a medium to well behaved hound, i will get an after dinner carrot treat to crunch on!
have you had a funday sunday?
Simple things, like taking a bone for a walk, can get hickle-de-pickle-de very fast it seems 🙈
it all started with a beagle bath before i was taken for a walk to dry off my eardo 🙉
as i was getting all geared up with my leash and harness put on, i saw my bone and decided to take it for a walk as well 🤗🐾
but sometimes, what seems like a good idea ends up being nothing more than a conundrum!
i had no way of sniffing you see... and what use is a walk to a hound if a hound cannot sniff?
in the middle of this pickle, a sweet spaniel called luna came and said hello to me. luna was lovely and i soon forgot all about my bone debacle!
until i arrived home... 😔
now, here i am at home... yes i'm looking fresh, but i'm a hound with worries this evening as i ponder about the bone i left under a leafy green tree 🌳
will i see it again? 🤔
I've decided that i quite fancy myself as a hotel hound, where i could sniff and check bags and greet guests with my wagging tail and caramel coated ears 🙉
could there really be anything more exciting than being a beagle bag checker?! 🙊
later, while enjoying a moment from my pondering spot, i got to thinking about such things. perhaps i really should consider being be a hotel hound... 🤔
i wonder if people would like to a ludo hug on arrival? 🐾
and maybe, if i could be a hotel hound, then i'd be allowed to travel with my humans! 🤗
i'd even have my own little beagle suitcase 🐶🎒
so... do you know someone who would like a visit from ludo?! 🙈
For the most part, my week has been tracking well. humum even said i've been 'on the good side of average' for my houndish ways 🙊
but then life happened...
you see, i've come to realise that some days are pondering days and some days are doing days 🐶
yesterday i had a doing day 🙈
the 'doing' was in fact the beagling of a shoe 😬
so, i had a minor slip, if you will. a hiccup, a speed bump, a silly oversight and such...
perhaps it was a beagle moment? that's something you don't hear people say...'oh, i just had a beagle moment' 😂
well, that's neither here nor there. but the thing is... for the most part i have been a good hound, it was really just the silly shoe that messed up my game 😤
The trouble with being a medium sized hound, i've decided, is that my legs will only ever get me so far in life.
never will i be able to reach my sniffer to the top of the table.
and never will i be one of those galloping dogs at the park with legs so long, i almost get mistaken as a horse! 🙈
no siree that is not me! 🙃
i'm just a medium sized hound with medium sized legs... 🐶
i guess you'd say i'm compact.
but like most compact beagles out there, i have big dreams of one day reaching my sniffer to the top of the table! 🤗
a hound has to have a dream after all. because if a hound doesn't have a dream, well then, i guess they're not really a hound? 🤔
