You’ve heard the old saying that silence is golden, unless you have kids, puppies, or kittens. Then it’s suspicious. Lily has been howling most of the day and she got real quiet for a while. I had to go check on her and found she was okay. I wasn’t sure because she got out under the gate earlier in the day. I thought I was losing my patience because I didn’t remember Munchkin behaving like Lily does. But the memories came back this morning. Did they ever! Anyway, I’m going to list this weekend’s events while it’s quiet.

That’s it for this week! I’m going to take Lily out and hope she stops howling for a bit. Then I’m going to look for a friend for her. I know beagles do better with a friend and don’t howl so much. So, we’ll see. Get out there and have fun with your pets!
