Beagle Man Skis the Alps. With Five 30-somethings. And lives to tell about it . . .

on
“Write about him,” Derr said, nodding in the direction of Harry, the low-slung, fruit-sniffing beagle.  We were clustered around the baggage carousel at JFK, last stop on the Zermatt 6 Ski-the-Alps Tour, when Harry made his presence known by poking his snout into Geiger’s duffel.  “There’s your connection for Beagle Man,” Derr said. The Young […] [Read More]

The Two Kemba’s

on
Obviously, I knew I’d be socked in watching Ravens vs. Pats and Panthers vs. Seahawks on Saturday.  And, of course, UConn hoops — vs. Cincinnati.  Robby was still home from college (drove him back to the airport last night), and when Robby’s home there’s no such thing as a football or basketball game too insignificant […] [Read More]

Kemba’s “Lassie” Moment

on
Saturday afternoon in Vermont it snowed — and kept snowing into the evening.  Kemba, being Canadian, was oblivious to the weather (see photo, right); in fact, we were able to gauge the snowfall by how much accumulated on his red coat.  By dinner time, the snow had turned to rain, and then . . .

A Nice Medium-Sized Dog, Huh?

on
Remember back when Beagle Man wanted a German Shepherd, and Mrs. B wanted nothing bigger than a Beagle?  And this Duck Toller was the Great Compromise — a nice, medium-sized dog?  Hah!  Have you by any chance taken a look at Kemba lately?  Did you happen to notice the length of his limbs?  Steve the Breeder told B-Man […] [Read More]

One Of the Stupidest Things I’ve Ever Done (And That’s Saying Something)

on
This might be better than the $27.99 elk antler. Heather the Trainer had told me about “Puppy Social,” a drop-in, pay-as-you-go ($10 for the 45-minute session) supervised play group at Paws ‘N Effect in Hamden.  I pride myself on knowing CT geography from my days of following the boys all over the state for their […] [Read More]
