First of all, let me just say that humans have a strange idea of what’s acceptable to a dog. Woe is me: Would you believe they stuffed me in a crate with my water bowl, leash and a towel, and stuck me in with the baggage on the plane? What’s up with THAT?! I was so distraught, I had to chew the towel to shreds.
I mean, really, what does a beagle need with a headset?! Needless to say, I was not impressed.
The next day was better: We went for a nice, long walk on the beach, and I tried some crab (crunchy!), jellyfish (slimey!) and some other chewy fishlike thing. They all smelled very promising indeed, but I did not care for the taste, frankly, and soon spit them back out onto the sand.
At the beach, we saw some other nice doggies – I pulled and pulled until she took me to see them so I could socialise, but then the humans started talking, and next thing you know, she’s pulling me away again. Something about “guard dog” and “chew the little beagle to pieces” or some such nonsense. Whatever! Anyway, it was a real drag – I haven’t smelled me a nice piece of ass in almost three days now!!!
I went swimming in the ocean – it was salty! I liked cooling off, but I was thirsty, and the water was, well, YUCKY! Not at all like the nice lakewater at home in Toronto.
Earlier in the day, I decided to make a break for it: I slipped out while she was carrying some stuff down to the music cabin, and wandered off the deck and down the stairs, over to the neighbour’s yard. They have nice, tall grass in the back, so I made a beeline for that, knowing that even my tall, waggy tail would be covered there. She looked for a bit, but soon gave up when she couldn’t hear me rustling around anymore, and went to chit chat with the neighbour. I, meanwhile, enjoyed a jaunt down the street and through some other fields. The neighbours’ kids chased me for a while with their dad, but they soon gave up, too.
Yawn! What a long day – I’m beat. It’s off to the couch for me… or maybe the bed; I’m allowed to sleep up on the bed with her in PEI when no one else is around to hog the blankets.
