    Beagle Man sent around a family text earlier this week with a link to a New York Times article.  It was called “Remembering the One and Only Uno” (Richard Sandomir).  Well, I sure do.  Remember him, that is.  Uno was one of my idols.  He was the first Beagle to ever win Best in Show at Westminster,

    Hey, I just saw this AMAZING post about last Saturday’s Royal Wedding.  I’m talking about the one they’ve been calling the Royal Wedding that took place in England; we all know the real Royal Wedding that day was at Claxton Farm in North Carolina.  (My congrats, of course, to Matt and Alison.) The post — which I copied, below

    Well, it certainly took him long enough!  I cannot tell you how hard I’ve tried to get through to that goody-four-shoes!  Seriously, how many times do I have to listen to Beagle Man telling his dog park buddies, “Kemba’s not really food-obsessed.  At least not like Ricky was.”  And what’s so terrible about being food-obsessed,

    Beagle Man and the Missus spent three days last week in Nashville.  Maybe you remember that I’ve been to Nashville a couple of times myself?  [September 2011, LA/XC-1, Ricky Storms N-ville;         and September 2013, LA/XC-3, You Never Know Who You’re Gonna Run Into in Nashville]  I know the B-Man remembers, because I heard

    Hey, guys, Ricky the Beagle here.  I know, you haven’t heard my voice yet on LA/XC-5.  What can I say?  Sounds to me like B-Man and the K-Dawg have been living large — first on the road, now in Santa Monica.  But I can’t complain; I had a good run on my own cross-country trips

    On Thursday, July 7, my good friend Nena (some would say my “girlfriend”) woke up having trouble breathing, so Luz and her niece rushed her to the vet.  There was a mass in her lung, it turns out, and her heart was enlarged.  Before they could even get her to a specialist, she collapsed and
