Stand Up For Kemba’s First Amendment Rights: Freedom of Beach!

on
As Beagle Man promised at the end of his last post, he drove over to East Hampton Town Justice Court on Friday, hoping to finally resolve Kemba’s little legal snafu over being off-leash at the beach.  No such luck.  Instead, he got a 12 noon August  24 court date!  And poor Kelly (remember, it’s actually […] [Read More]

The State of New York vs. Kemba the Duck Dog

on
On Sunday, July 12, Kemba was arrested.  Well, actually, Kelly was arrested.  Well, not really arrested.  She got a ticket. So here’s what happened.  On a beautiful, peaceful, sunny Sunday afternoon, my daughter-in-law — I like saying that — came up to the house from the beach with Kemba, looking for her driver’s license.  “We […] [Read More]

The Odd Couple

on
So  by now you know I really like Kemba; we’ve established that.  He’s cool, and he’s got a lot of heart — like some other dog who used to hang out with the Beagle Man.  But he’s almost 11 months old, and he’s still a little, I don’t know . . . foolish?  B-Man has […] [Read More]

The Waiting

on
Beagle Man takes me to the dog park.  He takes me to the beach and launches balls into the ocean with the chuckit for hours.  He takes me on all his errands — Walgreen’s, the dry cleaners, Pet Supplies Plus, Staples.  He takes me when he goes out to dinner, though I usually have to […] [Read More]

Sharing

on
Sharing is over-rated.  I’ve always said it.  Most guys I know feel the same way.  (I do think this is one of those male/female divides.)  I’m talking about sharing food, for the most part.  I’ll order a medium-sized cup of home-made soft ice cream at Bostwick’s, let’s say.  Carol will undoubtedly ask for a taste.  […] [Read More]

Enough About the Wedding!

on
I met three dogs named Stella at the dog park this morning.  Three!  Beagle Man says if I’d been a girl, I would have been named Stella, after his mom.  Robby says I couldn’t have been a girl because there’s no way he would have let a girl dog in the house.  Hey, has anyone […] [Read More]

Kemba and Luz and the Tulip

on
I only heard about all this last week. Apparently Luz, who most of you know as Robby’s old baby-sitter and patron saint of Ricky, Kemba, and all dogs everywhere, had planted some tulip seeds two, maybe three years ago, in a pot in the kitchen.  And waited for it to flower.  And waited.  And waited.  […] [Read More]

The Lion King and the Peaceful Panda

on
Patty, the youngest of my three nieces, and Teddy, her husband, have a four-and-a-half-year-old black Lab named Bruce.  Bruce might just be the nicest dog you’ll ever meet: mellow, friendly, good-natured, well-trained — and happy to do pretty much whatever.    Beagle Man followers first met Bruce back in 2012, during LA/XC-2, when Ricky the Beagle […] [Read More]
