Uno's First Christmas

This Christmas we were blessed with visits from family and friends from as near as Upland to as far away as Oklahoma (and by "blessed," I mean that all of the grown-ups behaved themselves...).  I had worried -- for about 5 minutes -- that Uno might be a little overwhelmed with all of the company coming and going since he'd only been home for a little over a week.  Now the only thing that worries me is how he'll feel once everyone who has been doting on him for the past several days goes back home!  

To say that Beagles are readily adaptable is a serious understatement -- this little guy has basically gone from lap to lap, couch to love seat, cuddles to scratches, my brother's bed to my bed for the last 4 days!  I don't even know if he remembers what a metal cage looks like! 

He runs around here with his tail straight up in the air, is learning to sit, knows what, "Who's hungry?!?!?" means (the dinner bell for the dogs 'round here), has discovered a passion for a particular article of clothing to be discussed in a later post, "aroo's" and "aroo's" and chases the big dogs up the hill in our backyard as fast as his little legs will carry him...

Uno has been an absolute hit amongst our guests this Christmas.  All he heard for days was, "What a good-looking dog," "He's SO soft," "He's SO sweet!," and "He really is a beautiful dog" and Uno is just reveling in the praise.  
He even had a piece of coconut cream pie that my brother-in-law was silly enough to leave right at nose level!  

Well, Uno may feel like he's had it good this Christmas but we all know that HE has been the greatest gift any of us received this year... Merry Christmas Uno!  



  1. OMG He's playing with toys!!!!! Merry Christmas to you and your most amazing family.

  2. Love the last pic of Uno and the kids. He fits right in. You can tell he's completely at ease by the way his ears are laying. So dang cute!

  3. Such beautiful children you have.

    To all your viewers ..... please watch the video I made of the 40 beagles after being rescued from the testing lab in Barcelona, Spain to leaving from the kennels they were safely housed in for a week before being driven to Madrid airport for a flight to Los Angeles. The first week in their new lives.

    Please post this, thanks.
