I've been standin' here, waitin' mr. postman, so-wo-wo patiently

This is the dog. Her name is Agatha. We like old lady names at our house, what can I say?
She is a 3-year-old beagle, and so far she is purt near perfect. Quiet, calm, submissive, no accidents, no houndy smell. We got her last night from the Salt Lake Humane Society, which I highly recommend as an ethically superior, clean, and well-run place to get a pet. She will not chew anyone's face off if they try to attack me while I'm out running, but I don't think I have the mad Cesar skills to raise a personal protection dog at this point in my career.

The whole drive home Grant kept saying, "I love this dog so much. She's such a good dog. I feel such a connection to her. We're definitely keeping her, right?" I only got about four hours of sleep last night, even though Aggie didn't make any noise at all. I think it was Christmas Eve syndrome.

A while ago I ordered a spice blend from Kalustyan's to make some macacheese that Tipsy recommended. I felt so fancy when this box came.
I figured as long as I was paying so dang much shipping I might as well get some dry mustard and some marble halvah to show for it. I felt very multicultural.

Dog toys smell gross, even before they've been chewed on.

She is WAY cute! Richard will love her, I'm sure. He loves beagles because he once had one and I think it looked exactly like that! Congratulations!

I like beagles, they're good dogs. I hope that she isn't hiding her true self for later.

Oh, she is beautiful! She looks perfect. And such pretty floors.

She is so so pretty! How exciting. I hope that she is wonderfully well-behaved.

Do you have a dishwasher? I hear beagles like to get in the dishwasher. I'm just wondering if you can confirm or deny this.

Congrats! Agatha is a good name for her.

I was just thinking I wanted to name a dog Agatha.

Very cute dog. How is she with your cats?
