It’s creeping up on me, I think.

I went to leap up onto a bed this morning. In the process of making myself ready to launch my form onto the soft mattress with a duvet cover smothered in beagle glitter, I was seen to hesitate and then make a double movement to reach the giddy heights of the bed. I just made it. I have not hesitated before and it made my dad feel a little sad.

He watched as I settled carefully onto the middle of the bed, looked out of the window and sighed gently as I rested.

I can still do it. Just.

  1. You are a very handsome and brave beagle and Dad will be pleased that you made it onto the bed.

    Our leg muscles don’t work quite so well when we’re older (for humans too), but you still have it Dexter ❤️❤️❤️

  2. As I go about, I often see signs such as this one and they remind me of a certain four-footed person whose adventures I follow with interest and to whom I send my best wishes.


  3. The preceding comments should have included a picture but that doesn’t seen to work with comments. Apologies. Please delete both these comments (but receive the best wishes!).


  4. Yes, my BH has noticed that I’m more reluctant to leap onto the big bed. So my overnight feeder, which used to be on the floor for me to have overnight snacks, is now on the big bed.
    Spoiled? Me?
