I took this photo of blind Austin the other evening in one of the dog yards. Even before we moved in, there had been a rather sizable hole in the ground where this particular yard is located. Oddly, no one seemed to pay it any attention, and I never saw any dog actually in it. Until Thursday evening that is, when I found Austin had not only appropriated the hole for himself, but dug it even deeper. The hole was now as deep as he is tall. Apparently the old line that advises, "When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging," does not apply to Beagles.
Alayne is finally on her way! She will be in South Bend, Indiana tonight and arriving here on Tuesday. That's a day later than we had hoped, but she is making her way to New Hampshire!
