One of our newest additions is Diamond.
She's an 8 month old beagle puppy and while she looks all sweet and innocent don't let the picture fool you, she's my little monster. Her favorite things are chewing, napping, chewing, howling, chewing, giving big wet kisses... oh didn't I mention she loves to chew on things. She'll chew on anything that she is not suppose too, her toys go untouched.
Last Tuesday Diamond decided I needed to go for a little run, though our 5 acres, through the farmers cornfield into the woods in the cold drizzling rain. I must have been chasing her for over an hour (not an easy task with a broken foot) when I finally gave up. She must have noticed that I was no longer on her trail and decided she better get home because about a 10 minutes later she was scratching at the door to get in.
Later that night, I started developing a sore throat and it's been downhill ever since. I have spent most of the weekend in bed battling a nasty cold and horrendous cough. I'm feeling a little better today but hopefully she will not take me on another adventure anytime soon.
