For our Memorial Day Weekend edition of Let Sleeping Dogs Lie & Napping Cats Nap, we have something few people have seen.
Perhaps you hope to see “different” things during your holiday time off. Different things such as, if you are from North Texas, mountains fall into that category. Maybe you want to see New York City. Or San Francisco. Or, perhaps, Thackerville, Okla., where Texas money goes to find a new home.
What we have here, though, is a photo of something you may never have seen: Four Beagles sleeping. Seriously, think about it. Have you ever seen a Beagle quartet snoozing?
The story on this photo? Four Texas Beagles pooled their savings and took it to Winstar where they won big on the slots and the Casino comped them this Canine Speciality Suite.
I’m kidding. This is a photo of four Beagle visitors to the Friends of the Animals Spay/Neuter Clinic at Gun Barrel City, Texas, on the edge of Cedar Creek Lake. As you know, the Friends of the Animals at Cedar Creek Lake operate, so to speak, the world’s most successful spay/neuter clinic at Gun Barrel City.
In my career as a journalist (approaching a half-century), I have never seen four Beagles sleeping. Anybody else ever see four Beagles stretched out and sleeping?
The story was posted on the Friends Facebook site HERE.
The caption, from back in April, reads, “It was HOUND DAY at Friends yesterday...These four adorable Beagles were there for surgery along with a couple of Bassets and a Bloodhound - needless to say, it was NOISY at the clinic until they all went home!”
[NOMINATE YOUR sleeping canines and napping felines and other slumberers for the spotlight of Let Sleeping Dogs Lie & Napping Cats Nap by sending their photo and the info to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re proud to show off your friends to our reading friends around the world. FYI: As you know we post the sleeping dogs and napping cats to give encouragement to insomniacs that they, too, may find sleep. So, heads up, Friends of the Animals, if you get calls from people saying they don’t need to be fixed, they just want to borrow a towel and have a nice lie-down in the recovery room. Charge ‘em a good room rate -- insomniacs will pay anything to catch a few winks. Everybody, enjoy your holiday weekend and if you need sleep, I hope you get it. If you don’t need sleep? Well, aren't you the lucky insomniac.]
