Charlie in Early March

Hello! It's me, Mom's brave beagle. She says I'm doing better because I'm not as scared in the car as I used to be. I still don't like it much. I worry a lot, but that’s part of my job. I have to take care of Mom and the house and the yard. It can be exhausting, so I sleep a lot.

Did you hear something? Did you see something move?

 There was too much rain this week. The squirrel got wet.

Rain even came in one of the windows. It made a mess.

Today Lynn and some friends came, and Wayne worked on the window from the outside. Lynn and Barb took me for a walk.

And a daffodil bloomed in our yard today. 

Yesterday Mom took me to the state park. It rained later, but at least I had a chance to check out all the interesting smells. Other dogs go there, and different animals too. 

I’m just trying to show you what I can see by sniffing. It’s very exciting.


  1. Hi Charlie — You seem to be doing a great job with your sniffing.
    best, mae at

  2. Your art is lovely and the last photo is very clever.

  3. Hello,
    Charlie you are a good dog protecting your Mama and your yard. Love your cute photos. I hope you do not meet up with a real bear on your walks. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a great day and happy new week. PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

  4. Wish I could smell as well as you, Charlie.

  5. ...stay away from the bear, Charlie.

  6. Charlie, you are indeed a brave boy! We love accompanying you on your walks and getting to see and sniff out fun things with you.
    Our Mummy purr-ticularly loves the daffodil. It was HER Mummy's favourite flower.

  7. You're looking pretty good Charlie...and I know your nose knows a lot about everything around you!

  8. Aww lovely post Charlie :)

    All the best Jan

  9. Adorable Charlie, the Daffodil bloom is incredible. Thanks for sharing with Garden Affair.
