Dodger the Beagle. The 20 months update.

It has been a while since I last posted about my young beagle Dodger. One of the reasons for that is because he has calmed down quite a bit and is not quite so naughty.  Don't get me wrong - he's not transformed over night but he is a calmer dog.  Being a beagle he is still a dreadful food thief. Nothing can be left within his reach for even a second.

Christmas time with cats and dogs can usually be interesting.  Dodger liked removing the baubles from the tree and running about with them with one us chasing him.  Very annoying when this started to take place about 15 times a day.  The Christmas tree ended up looking ridiculous with most of the decorations all at the top where he couldn't reach them.

He still has many naughty dog moments.  This week he dug up a plant in the garden and brought in the roots complete with all the soil which left a brown trail all down the hallway and into the lounge.
Despite this I would say that he has calmed down considerably and we all adore him.
