This is Not About Food.

This was taken at about 3:40 a.m. the other night. And yes, that’s the dog behind the couch —

Let me back up for a minute.

3:30 a.m. My husband woke me up because he heard a banging outside. Rather than lay there and wonder, I pulled on my boots, demanded a flashlight and went to investigate. Let me paint this picture in full: me, in a little black tank top and flowered pajama pants with brown Uggs, stomping up my long driveway with a giant flashlight and a chip on my shoulder . . . I found nothing (we were concerned that the delinquents were back destroying mailboxes), no one, no source . . . probably a good thing. Anyway, back down the driveway and into bed I went.

Then, minutes later, there was a thud in the living room. Was it the delinquents? No. Was it a burgler? No.

It was the dog. Rolling off the couch. And falling behind it.

Stupid dog. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.

I quickly snapped the above photo before Shawn rescued him.

    You have beagles too? Awesome. That looks like something Nigel Beagle would do.

    You had presence of mind to actually grab a camera at 3:40 in the morning?????

    Oh -Thanks so much for the giggle…While I am sorry your pooch woke you up in the wee hours, I do love that I laughed aloud!

    Akaijen, I love my beagles (I have two of them) . . . so much fun, even when they are getting into mischief.

    Lynn, LOL – if I hadn’t already been out of bed and up to the top of my driveway, the thought would have never come to mind, but it was a shot I couldn’t miss!

    Chris, glad it gave you a chuckle. I got a good laugh out of it too, so that softened the blow of being awake.

    was it Snoopy or Scrappy?

    my money is on Snoopy…

    Scrappy is more graceful

    Yep, that’s Snoopy – grace is definitely not among his attributes :)
