I'm an aunt again!

My sister, Lisa, just bought a house recently and decided that it was time for a new addition to her family, a 6 month old Beagle mix named Stewie. He sort of has a beagle head but no one knows who the baby daddy is so your guess is as good as mine.

Lisa already has an Indian Ringneck Parrot that she's had for about 8 years. Unlike a lot of birds, Waldo has free reign of the house, flying from room to room without a care.

Let me remind you that a Beagle is a hunting dog and whatever little bit of Beagle Stewie has in him is fully conscious of that fact. Yes, it's been an interesting 5 days.

We knew there might be some challenges the first day when Stewie, the high jumper, almost caught Waldo in mid-flight. He did a few days later but I think he was curious more than anything else because Waldo came out of it with a few less feathers and a nervous twitch but she's fine.

I'll keep you posted on how this blended family does.


  1. Chrissy thats funny...beagle+bird=death for bird of course. Thanks for dropping by my blog. Stripper eh....everyone needs to make an honset living....plus what a great work-out and a great way to strengthen your inner thighs on that nice shiny pole.


  2. We're crossing our fingers that they'll be one of those couples that make people shake their heads and say, "how DO they do it?"

    Thanks for stopping!

  3. A bird with a twitch. That's freakin' hysterical in my head.


C'mon, you know you want to say it..
