The Moochers

You will probably know by now that Beagles are greedy. Very greedy. They all mooch and beg in their own unique ways.....

Snoop puts on his best "teddy bear" face and stares at you, occasionally he'll nod his head (really!) this is hard to capture on camera and usually ineffective.

Alfie puts his head on your knee and pretends to sleep......when that doesn't work he assumes the cutest or weirdest pose he can manage. (as if we'll suddenly say "aww, aren't you cute- here, have my dinner")

Rosie is as subtle as a brick.......she really doesn't care, there's no decorum there AT ALL, she'd sit on your plate if you let her! She gets as close as possible, (smacking her lips very loud) so she can hijack the food off your fork before it reaches your mouth!
Gabbi is so funny, she pretends she couldn't care less whether you give her any or not.....but the drooling gives it away, it's like giant cobwebs on her chin, usually reaching her paws!

Obviously, different foods cause different reactions, these photos were taken while we ate apple pie and ice-cream!

That's Pawlympic quality drooling! I bet Gabbi would have won the gold this summer.

Mum was nodding at each statement! Beagles...It's all about food!

The Girl says how can you resist them when they are SO CUTE!!!!!

I like to lick my lips when The Girl eats something I really want. My tongue gets really, really long, and I stretch my neck out as close to the food as I can get. Then, I drool. And put my chin on her leg. And make her leg all drooly.

Brown dog kisses,

That's very true! I'm more like Rosie though. I'll cuddle up as close as I can and then stare at mum with my big watery eyes while resting my chin on her lap. Stinky Barley is like Rosie, he'll drool and drool!!

Beagles greedy? Surely not?!!
I'd rather have that though than my two paps and one vizsla who are competing to see who can make size zero first! Rosa is winning, by the way.

ha ha! I love your descriptions about their varying ways of begging! Our island mutt, Ila, just sits as close as he can and stares and stares. Lucky for him, we have unruly boys who slip him food now and then. :)
