Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter

July 1, 2008


This weekend's road trip was to a beaglefest at Linda Forrest's house in south Jersey. Linda runs the SOS Beagle Rescue and has recently moved back to New Jersey after a multi-year sojurn in Tennessee. There were around twenty beagles there and everyone got along quite well. It was pretty hot and hence the dogs were rather subdued, no fun chases to watch and for a pleasant change, no humping. Skipper enjoyed himself but must have wondered what the heck was going on. The handsome dog on the right is named Bosco and he is a beagle-basset mix. The reason I took this picture is because a lot of people ask if Clayton has any basset in him. I agree, his ears are long, his feet are big and he's low to the ground, but here's a REAL beagle-basset and he doesn't look anything like Clayton. So I hope this will put to an end the dark rumors of Clayton's parentage. He is beagle!
