A Luminous Halo

"Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end." --Virginia Woolf

Champion K-Run's Park Me in First

Now that Champion K-Run's Park Me In First, a.k.a. Uno, has won the Westminster Kennel Club's 2008 dog show, there'll definitely be a run on beagles. These dogs are super-friendly and energetic, which is great under the right conditions. Beagles don't like to be left alone--ever--and they need loads of exercise. They like to roam and they like to follow a scent. If they don't have constant companionship, stimulation, and exercise, they can get into all kinds of mischief. Plus, they bay! Loudly! When they're on the hunt, of course--but sometimes it's hard to tell just what has set them off. This tendency can be a big problem in the wrong neighborhood, or it can be hilarious.
