I bet you really really love MEAN ROOSTER!! How boring life would be without him…I have a love hate relationship with a old mean beagle, who does not have two many days left. He likes to take a bite out of my ankle every now and then but when he is having a bad day he lays by my feet wherever I go…I am gonna miss my rotten stinky beagle one day!!

I went out to take pictures yesterday evening, but had forgotten to charge my camera battery. Maybe today.
