An Open Letter to My Beagle

Dearest Butter,

Why must you make life so difficult? Behind that cute little facade with the mile long floppy ears lurks an evil too terrible to contemplate.

Mommy paid good money to have gutters installed on the house. Why then, have you decided that they are delicious? What is it about sharp aluminum that is so appealing to you? I feed you more than your fair share of food, so I know you're not eating the gutters because you are hungry. Who would have thought that a little short squatty thing like yourself could dismantle something that it took four grown men to assemble?

Also, the privacy fence is not a toy. Continue to test me on this and I will turn the electric fence back on. I might even figure out a way to hook it to the gutters.

Love,
Mom

What? How can your little beagle reach your gutters?

She's eating the little spout that comes down the side of the house. She's pulled on it so that the whole spout is disjointed and coming apart.

I was wondering the same thing...that'd actually be a pretty impressive feat...but the downspout, that's a different story
