Brave Beagles

A moose decided to hang around our mailbox, snacking on the tasty alders. Wrong move, moose. I've got some pretty ferocious dogs who will eat you for breakfast.




Daisy and Lupine confronted that moose and let him have it.





Of course, a beagle's idea of "confront" includes standing safely on the deck.
But they did bark!

The moose turned its head.





You should have seen our 7-month-old puppy. Tears of pride filled my eyes as I watched her risk her very life to protect our family from the crazed moose.




Perhaps "risk" is too strong a word . . .






She moved back behind Daisy and continued barking.


The moose was very scared.



Dinner last night: white chili, sweet cornbread muffins

Great post, I admire the writing style :) A little off topic here but what theme are you using? Looks pretty cool.

Daisy and Lupine are braver than I would have been! I'd have been hiding under the covers hoping it didn't rush the house.

One day you need to post recipes for the things you make for dinner. White chili? Sounds interesting!

It's a good thing you have those guard dogs to protect you!

Your dogs are so adorable. It must have been so neat to see a moose in your very own yard!
