Dear Dog Blog,

Here is me wearing my "where's waldo" glasses with Mummy. Do you think wearing these will help us find him? And more importantly, does this Waldo dude have any treats???

Dear Dog Blog,

Here are a few pics from our snow day:

Today I almost broke the world record for longest drool. I was sitting beside Mummy who was eating her lunch and just couldn't help myself. Hey...I come by these talents naturally.

If you look closely you can see it goes down to the middle of my chest:




Unfortunately the length of my drool didn't impress her. I decided to use another tactic of mine. Mummy! Mummy! Can I please have some? hellooooo!

Guess what! For Valentine's Day, M&D got me my very own camera and ZuZu got another t.b. (ZuZu thinks I lost out)!

I've decided to call my camera, Hammie's Cammii (named after Daddy's new camera - Cammii Zunon)

Anyway, we thought it would be fun to have a vote to see who you think captured the better photo, me or Daddy?! Let us know by commenting either "Hammie or Daddy"

Here's Daddy's photo from his Cammii (is it fair he used a cute beagle as his model?):



Here's my photo from Hammie's Cammii (can you see the back of my jowls and drool? BOL!):



For those wondering how I captured my photo, M&D set it on video mode and they helped to screen capture one of the images from the file.


So, what do you think? Vote by commenting, "Hammie or Daddy"!

Lately on facebook we've noticed quite a few beagle friends with a really cute snoopy bed. We were so surprised and happy when our dear friend Sadie sent us one in the mail!!! It was so unexpected and sweet, just like when Beggie sent us prezzies for her birthday.

Here are some pics of our first day with our snoopy bed:

Hammie says this is the perfect size, just for me!

ZuZu decided to try out the snoopy bed and posed for a pic
but Hammie's nose got in the way (is he jealous?).

car sickness be gone! ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe (beagle)







Dear Dog Blog,

Ever since I was a little pup I just could not stand riding in the car. Even if it meant we was traveling to the beach, park, cousin Moby's or BFF Charlie's house. Every time I'd get in the car I'd drool excessively, puke and sometimes even pee cuz I was so scared.

To help me with my anxiety, M&D bought me a special thundershirt. The thundershirt helped and soon I could ride in the car for up to 45 min without puking! Our vet also helped me with some homeopathic remedies.

This is a pic of me with my thundershirt a few months ago. Can you see how upset I was in my eyes?


Over the last few weeks I'm proud to say I made another breakthrough in overcoming my car anxiety. I recently discovered the joys of sticking my nose out the window. I realized I could smell lots of yummy things and it feels nice to have the wind blow in my face.

Today M&D took me and ZuZu out for a hike and they decided to try letting me ride in the car without my thundershirt. And guess what! I did it! I was able to ride in the car without my thundershirt and there was no drool, no puke, no piddling and I was still brave enough to stick my nose out the window!


M&D are so proud of me and ZuZu is no longer rolling her eyes at how pathetic I am in the car. I'm so glad I'm getting better and pretty soon we'll be able to go on a big road trip! aroooooo!

Here's a pic of me, ZuZu and Mummy on the trail today.


Here's to many more car rides and road trips in the future!

the wish flower ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe (beagle)







Dear Dog Blog,

The other day we discovered a very special kind of plant. Mummy told us that if we make a wish and blow on the flower, our wish will come true. I thought that was pretty special so I decided to call it the wish flower. Here is me being very careful and taking a sniff at it.


ZuZu was nervous and didn't want to get too close. She hadn't figured out her wish yet.



Here is me thinking very hard about what I want to wish for. There are so many things: cookies, bigger portions for dinner, more meals during the day, getting into the garbage without getting caught, figuring out how to open the fridge without getting caught, or winning this photo contest, the list goes on and on...


After a while were finally ready to make our wish. Me and ZuZu had trouble blowing on the flower so Mummy helped.



I hope our wishes come true. Can you guess what I finally settled on? What would you wish for?

circus training ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe


Dear Dog Blog,

The other day Mummy and Daddy brought home these exotic snake ropes for me and ZuZu:

We thought it would be a good idea to try and tame them before they got out of control, kinda like what circus masters do!


ZuZu tamed her snake rope pretty quick:


And shortly after she coached me use one as a hoop to jump through! Watch!!!




Pretty cool huh? I think we is ready for the circus!

gardening is hard work ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe (beagle)







Dear Dog Blog,

I decided to start my gardening early this year.  Here I am sniffing things out and planning how I want things to look.


The last thing I want is for my garden is for it to look like everyone else's. So I decided to try out some new things.  Mummy says instead of having 'green' paws I have 'heavy' paws. But isn't that exactly what a good gardener needs?! See Exhibit A and B below. I think the flowers look better closer to the ground, don't you?

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

I'm not sure how happy Mummy is with all this but I think its all just a matter of taste! Speaking of taste, in the middle of all this gardening I started to get a bit hungry. Here I am trying to nom on some flower leaves but Mummy caught me and said they aren't for nomming on. Do I look disappointed?


Well after all this sniffing, stomping, digging and re-organizing I decided it was time for a nap. Best part of gardening is a good nap after a hard day's work!

my time-out box ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe (beagle)






Dear Dog Blog,
M&D recently introduced me to something called a "time out" box. They said its for when they I need quiet time because I'm being naughty.


I'm not really sure what that means but I've decided that this 'time out' box is pretty comfy.


ZzzzZZZzzz...its definitely great for naps!



I hear M&D snicker and giggle every time I take a nap in my 'time out' box...but isn't that what its for? I  overheard them say there's no point in buying me any more expensive doggy beds but I say a pup can't have enough places to nap!

Daddy brought home a present for Mummy the other day. *Sniff sniff, sniff, sniff!* At first we thought it would be something fun for us all...


Then we found out it's a Roomba! Bah!!!!!!!!!!

Mummy was so happy (aka brainwashed!) she decided to call it "PuppyBot". Here she is trying to convince ZuZu to lub it too.


But we know better. We know this "Puppybot" is another form of the evil vaccum. We also know he will be our biggest competitor when it comes to nomming on yummy left over crumbs!!! So we quickly decided to read up on the enemy PuppyBot in our strategy to defeat him!


It got a bit too complicated for me so I let ZuZu try to figure things out while I tried a different strategy.


I dressed myself up in the bow Mummy lubs so much and put myself in the PuppyBot box in hopes that Mummy would realize she doesn't really need PuppyBot. "Hi Mummy! You don't need a PuppyBot! You already have me and I'm cuter!"


Despite my efforts and no matter how cute I looked, Mummy said PuppyBot stays. Boohoo!


Hmmm, I wonder how ZuZu is doing reading up on that manual?

xo,
Hampton Monroe

hampton vs. the indestructible toy ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe (beagle)






M&D recently gave me a so called 'indestructible' toy. BRING IT!

Me, assessing the situation:


RAR RAR RAR!

Getting at it from a different angle:


Hmmm...ok...ummm....

Round 1: Indestructible Toy: 1, Hampton: 0

To be continued....

snows on our nose ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe (beagle)






Dear Dog Blog:
We recently got a major dump of snow. It's probably going to be our last one for the year so we made sure we had lots of fun!

Here we are playing who looks cuter with 'snows on our nose':



Mummy and Daddy say its a tie! What do you think?

We also had fun playing 'snow'ball with t.b. ZuZu was the catcher:


and I was defense:


By then end of the day though I was wet, tired and thinking about summer. I have fun in the snow but I think I'm ready for summer now!

under the covers ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe (beagle)







I like to bury myself under the blanket when I sneep on Mummy's lap. This is what Mummy saw when she lifted the covers today. BTW, does my bum look big from this angle? BOL!

hiking at cypress falls ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe (beagle)






We had a rare rainless weekend in Vancouver so M&D decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and take us on a hike! Here are some pictures from the day:

ZuZu in the car on our way to the park. Can you tell she's excited?

Water!

Running around in the snow is fun! I'm ready for lift off!

ZuZu assessing the hike down

This is a beautiful waterfall we found on the trail

Nom nom break.

We had a great time! Another bonus was that I didn't puke in the car (both ways)! I'm getting better in he car and this means more opportunities to drive out for more hikes!

snuggle time ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe (beagle)






For those of you who don't know me, I am very routine oriented. Mummy doesn't need an alarm clock anymore because I always alert her to my routine. What a bonus for her right?

I've recently added something new to my routine...after dinner snuggles!! Every night after Mummy finishes her dinner I jump up and paw at her.


I am a very good beagle though because I leave her to eat her dinner in peace but as soon as she finishes her last bite I'm pawing at her to HURRY! Hurry Mummy, its snuggle time!



I (and Mummy) recommend all furfriends add this to their routines!

One of our most favorite pastimes (especially during winter) is PEOPLE WATCHING! There are generally 2 types of people watching we like to do:

1) We love people watching (aka security) from our window:



2) When nothing much is going on outside, we like to do some Mummy & Daddy watching:

Hampton watching Mummy being a crazy pupparazzo

ZuZu watching Daddy yell at the T.V (Canucks were playing)

We get lots of entertainment doing both types of people watching. All we are missing are a few cups of puppuccinos!

Sometimes it can be so hard for a beagle to find the perfect napping spot. I was having one of those days!


Mummy is always a good option but sometimes she complains about leg cramps...


Just when I was almost ready to give up...


Aaahhhhh! I found the perfect spot!


I hope you find your perfect napping spot today too!

i'm a photographer! ♥ dog blog ♥ hampton monroe



Over the weekend I'm proud to say I took my first ever photograph with Mummy's iphone - ALL BY MYSELF! This is how it went down:

M&D came home from shopping and I was super happy to see them (as always). Mummy took this picture of me jumping up to give her a kiss:


After I was finished with my greetings, Mummy noticed my pawprint frozen on the deck.


She told me to stand back because she wanted to take a picture of it but before she could do anything I jumped in and tapped the button with my nose!

And ta da! Here is my first ever photograph by Hampton Monroe:


What do you think? How long before I can all myself a pro? BOL!!

I was bored tonight so I decided to re-decorate where Mummy does her yoga.


But I don't know if Mummy was too happy with that.


Well, she must have been happy about my work because she said something about using a bison bone as a babysitter form of payment.

I can live with that!

We had fun with Mummy this weekend running around and trying to catch as many leaves as we can.



Mummy told us if you catch a leaf and make a wish your wish will come true!



I wished for more yummo noms! What else would I want!?


And ZuZu wished for more tennis balls (of course)!

We had so much fun!

Hi everyone! We is so excited! A magazine based in India asked to feature our t-shirts and I volunteered to be the model! Look at me! Look at me!

This is the cover of the magazine...inside on page 10-11, there I am!


Here is the picture up close. Do you think I did a good job as the model? Am I zoolander or  not? BOL!



More about the magazine: WOOF! The Mag with a Wag! was launched in Mumbai by the renowned dog organisation, ‘Canines Can Care’, in 2002. Since then, the magazine has been a hit with dog lovers all over the country. It is the first magazine of its kind in India.

Cool huh? Puppy Jones goes international! Next stop, Bollywood! BOL!

Here are some of the out takes from the photoshoot:

 Oops...I had to wipe my nose!
M&D said we were looking in the wrong direction in this one and the setting just wasn't quite right.

BOL! We all had lots of fun doing our photo shoot. I especially liked all the yummy noms I got for it. I  told M&D that in the future I won't wake up for less than 100 noms, BOL! Just kidding!

If you want to see more of our Puppy Jones clothing line, you can click on our shop icon. M&D are in the middle of figuring out which charity they will donate a % of the sales too. If you have any ideas or nominations, let us know!

Mummy has been slacking off on her job as our typist. So our blogging, tweets and fb updates have been slow (at least by our standards!). Mummy says she has been busy with her day job so tonight I decided to help her with work so she can hurry up and do some work for me!

Mummy was preparing some flip charts so I helped supervise:


The markers had yummy blueberry and cinnamon smells. She said I could help her write but I didn't think I could wrap my paws around the markers.


So instead I decided to rest my head help hold down the paper for her as she worked.


I am such a good assistant helper!! I'm thinking about asking her about a raise. Do you think its too soon?

Yesterday was family movie night! Daddy wanted us to watch one of his all time favorite childhood movies 'The Fox and the Hound'.

There was some points during the movie that I had to hide under my blanket...


And other times I was on the edge of my seat...


All in all it was definitely a woofy movie and one of my favs (just like Daddy)! I learned a lot about friendships and about how important it is for people to take care of each other, no matter if you are a hound, fox, hooman, momma owl or a caterpillar.

By the way, do you think me and ZuZu remind you of Copper and Chief?? (with the exception that ZuZu is a girl)...

A few weeks ago Mummy & Daddy drew a comic called "the assistant's assistant's assistant":

the assistant's assistant's assistant, comic #21

The other day when they were out shopping they found the same glasses I (Hampton) wore in the comic! Here are a few pics of me and ZuZu being silly and having a fun time with them:

My serious assistant look:


BOL! I can't keep a straight face for too long wearing these:


ZuZu wonders "Am I wearing these the right way?"


Ok, we better go now.

We're off on an assignment to get some nom noms for the puppy jones office! Now that's a job we won't delegate to puppy rock :)

Today, Daddy brought home a SUPERSIZED t.b. for us! I immediately ran over to ZuZu to show her.

 
I thought ZuZu would spaz out because of how much she lubs tennis balls and this one is SUPERSIZED! And I was right! She just lubbed it!

We had a lot of fun with SUPERSIZED t.b., we played lots of tug-o-war:



I think playing with a SUPERSIZED toy makes you even more tired than playing with a regular one. After all our playing we ended up having a SUPERSIZED nap. ZuZu was so sneepy she even let me nap with her (a bonus!).


Thank you Daddy for our new toy!

Ok, so when M&D came back from Disneyland they brought back Goofy and Dumbo for me and ZuZu.


We was so excited about our new stuffed toys BUT we soon found out that these are not for shredding! Mummy said something about memories or something and went so far as to hide Goofy from me (I just could not keep my paws off him, can you blame me?)! Anyway, being the super sniffer that I am,  I found Goofy's hiding spot!! Mummy tried to hide him up on top of some boxes but I found him!


 Here is me climbing on top of a shoe rack behind Mummy's golf clubs just to get him:



Success!


I thought I was in the clear but then Ruh Roh!...sadly I got caught. Umm...no Mummy, those aren't my drool stains!



Mummy gave me a short lecture and I promised I wouldn't do it again but 5 minutes later...here is me looking for Goofy again....Hey, where did he go??!!


Until the next adventure,

mummy and daddy are back from vacation!

About 10 days ago Mummy and Daddy left for 'vacation'. At first I didn't know what they were talking about and what this would mean. I've never experienced M&D leaving for 'vacation'. ZuZu tried to explain it to me but I just didn't understand. Then G-ma and G-pa came over to stay and take care of us. They spoiled us lots with yummy nom noms, we spent everyday in the gardens,  slept and played in the sunshine.  ZuZu was extra spoiled because G-pa played ball with her all the time. I quickly found out that vacations are pretty cool :)

Yesterday Mummy and Daddy came back from their trip. I was so happy to see them! ZuZu and I fought to give them kisses. They were both on the floor by the time we finished!

After re-uniting as a family I had 1:1 time with Mummy. I wanted to make sure it was really her. Mummy is that really you?


After Mummy smiled and reassured me I felt it was ok to be myself again wif her.


I quickly jumped into her lap and let her give me snuggles.


I is soo happy that our family is back together again!

I've always wondered about ZuZu's fascination with t.b. and so I decided steal him away from her.


ZuZu wasn't too happy about that but it was fun having her chase me.



Here I am running around with t.b. in my mouth....


running this way....


running that way....


I had so much fun with t.b!

But in the end I decided to give him back to ZuZu.  It was fun while it lasted but I know how much she lubs and missed him.


I think I'm a good brofur.

here is me when I was a puppy baby sneeping in my luxury bed (which is now all shredded up)...


here is me in a deep sneep after a FULL day of play (yup that is my snots dried up on my nose, BOL)...


here is how I sneep when I am REALLY pooped. Our fb friends Scooter n' Bella's Mummy says I look like I am climbing the wall,  BOL!!


my most favorite sneeping position though is sneeping with Mummy. Do you think she likes it as much as I do??

 M&D said these are for mountain bikes that come through the trails:

chewing shoes today - FAIL!

Today I was in the mood to chew on some shoes (one of my favorite past times). The tricky thing about chewing shoes though is that for some reason Mummy and Daddy don't like it when I do it. I don't understand why not - they are smelly, good for my teeth and when I do chew on shoes M&D come home with new ones (which they always seem happy about). Anyway, here is how my attempt to chew Daddy's shoes unfolded today:

Here I am trying not to attract any attention. My mouth is in the right position and I am just waiting for the right moment to CHOW DOWN!


UH OH...I think someone is coming...Daddy is calling my name.


I quickly close my eyes to pretend I'm sleeping!


It doesn't work, Daddy has found me out. I try to tell him "Daddy, I'm only using the shoe to rest my head" but he just rolls his eyes at me. Hrrrmmmph!


Ok, Daddy isn't convinced....need to give up on this one (for now)...


1 minute later....

"Oh, hi again Daddy...I'm just resting my head...."


*sigh* Chewing shoes was a FAIL today but there is always tomorrow!

Until then,

I recently blogged about the great time we had with Duke the beagle and his Mummy Hyedie who visited us from Toronto. If you missed it, you can read about it here.

Duke's foster beagle brofur, Petey, wasn't able to make the trip. I would have loved to meet Petey because I wanted to show him some tricks I copied from him. See Petey's video called "Working on 10 Part Behavior Chain with Petey" http://www.whenhoundsfly.com/resources/videos.html (Duke and Petey are both amazing beagles and lucky to have a Daddy (Andre) who is a positive reinforcement dog trainer).

Here is me doing two of the tricks (and ZuZu playing ball):
