Gone to the Dogs – MDW258



This podcast has gone to the dogs! Just a little update and some reminiscing with Dog-related songs from the old Podsafe Music Network

I update a little about our New (to us) RV and our dogs Percy and Benny (Beagles). I also talk about the Cherry Festival Airshow with the USAF Thunderbirds and the 4th of July fireworks from the Campground in Benzonia Michigan.

I played:


Elsa is Now Allie and Is Adopted!



Our foster dog Elsa (now renamed Allie) found her forever home with Kristin and her family.  She now lives in Battle Creek Michigan with her Husky brother, 2 kids and a loving Mom and Dad.  She has a BIG back yard to play in and a nice park to go for walks and sniff everything in site.

We miss her around here, but it is nice to be back down to just 2 crazy beagles for a while.

Have a great life Allie!!

 


We Officially Adopted Percy



How could we split these two up? Percy (the bigger one on bottom of the pile) was our foster dog for Midwest BREW but… He and Benny get a long so good and he’s just a nice dog, we adopted him.

He’s been here a month and a half (or so). He has the normal Beagle traits such as getting into the garbage, jumping over the baby gate so he can eat the cat food the occasional howling. He’s training Benny well. Especially the potty training part. We haven’t had an “Accident” in the house for over a month!

I look forward to many years of “da boys” playing in the yard, going for rides in the car and other fun beagle stuff.

Now we just have to get his License to be a dog in Michigan as his West Virginia license is no good. Wouldn’t want a scofflaw living in our house now would we? 🙂


Meet Percy – First Guest of Dell’s BB & B (Beagle Bed and Breakfast)



percy Percy is the first foster dog we are getting this weekend as volunteers of a great organization, Midwest Beagle Rescue, Education & Welfare (Midwest BREW) found at gotbeagles.org. When we lost Banjo this spring, we reached out to BREW to possibly adopt a beagle from them. We went through all the red-tape to adopt (It is to make sure the beagles get great homes) and by the time we were ready, Benny became available from some other people and we grabbed him.

I’ve always wanted to help out with dogs in need and since I’m a beagle person (so is my wife Kathy) we decided to volunteer at Midwest BREW. After a bit more paperwork and interviews, we are now getting Percy. He is a 1 year old beagle coming from a home of a single mother that can’t keep him for whatever reason so she gave him up in West Virginia. That is where BREW stepped in. As I type this He is on his way to Toledo Ohio via Big Truck. (Trucker Volunteers that move rescue dogs for free) He will arrive in Toledo Thursday and spend the night with some other volunteer’s in Toledo. Then he will be put on the Beagle Relay (I call it that) on his way up here to Traverse City Via Ann Arbor and West Branch Michigan where I will meet him and bring him to our home.

From there he will stay with us for 14 days to get his vet checks and shots and for us to get to know him and write a bio for the website. He will then be put up for adoption on GoBeagles.org where someone will apply and adopt him. So we might have him for a month, or 3 months. It’s going to be a bit hard to get to know a dog and then have to give him up, but that’s what Dog Rescues are all about.

We look forward to helping out many beagles find great homes all over the Midwest! We expessially look forward to meeting the first one, Percy, and We hope his stay at Dell’s BB&B is a pleasant one.
