Personal ad

I was imagining a personal ad that our dog might write:

Enjoys long walks, good food, and lazy naps in the afternoon. Hobbies include chasing chipmunks and squirrels, harassing cats, and any smells related to effluviant and human wastes, especially drain pipes and manhole covers. Favorite spots are couches and beds.

He's whole-heartedly adopted us. He's simultaneously mellow and enthusiastic. He wants to please and be involved. I don't think we could have picked a better dog. Being a beagle, and essentially a nose with legs, he also has his own agenda, which keeps him busy when nothing else is going on.

BB adores him. The dog slept on his bed last night while BB went to sleep. Simply perfect.

He sounds (and looks) so sweet!

I admit, when I read that you all were adopting a beagle, I was worried for you. They can be very noisy, as our friend Heather (now in Boston) discovered.

Can't wait to meet him.

We've only heard him bark twice. When dogs threatened us through a fence and when two Obama volunteers came across the lawn.

He's adopted us.
