Meet Lois Lane

September 5, 2013


The baby photo.


This is eight year old Lois Lane. She looks very serious, but her tail is wagging.
She’s a very happy beagle.
Our other dogs have been adopted as strays. But Lois is pure bred. Her parents and grandparents were top ranked show dogs. We bought Lois from a breeder who thought she would never win competitions because Lois’ tail wasn’t perfect. Little did they know, the fluffy white tail grew to be just perfect, and she would have swept the AKC Awards!
Lois likes to remind us of what could have been, if only we hadn’t held her back.
Guilt trip from a beagle.


I could have been a STAR!
Everyone asks if Lois howls all the time, and although she rarely
ever does, we caught her in the act last Christmas.
Hurry and open the presents!


Lois follows me around all day and every time I try to photograph something, she literally sticks her nose into my business. Beagles have an incredible sense of smell and want to give everything the nose test. If you go back and look closely at my photos, you will surely spot a beagle shadow in more than one.
This is what I see when I look down from my desk.
Like most beagles, Lois has one thing on her mind . . .
Feed me? Feed me? Feed me?
Now? Now? Now?
We once accidentally closed Lois in the garage – alone with the 40 pound bag of dog food. When we realized she was out there, we ran and opened the door only to find her standing in the middle of the  shredded bag. Her little stomach was making horrible noises and poking out like she had swallowed a basketball.
I’ve never seen a dog so happy and so miserable at the same time.



At the beach, Lois knows to dig a hole beneath the pier for maximum cooling potential.
Dogs aren’t allowed on our beaches, but don’t worry, this is a private beach – for beautiful beagles only.
If you ever find a mistake on this blog, it can be blamed on Lois.
She’s quite distracting with all of her cuteness bouncing around.
Stay tuned tomorrow to see what Lois found in Downtown Fairhope!

  • I’m a beagle girl too! Right now I have a 3 year old male and an 8 year old female beagle x lab. They’re both rescues from Beagle Paws and although the little guy drives me nuts, I love them dearly. Scratches to the lovely Lois Lane.

    • Yes, Beagles do test your patience sometimes. I compare Lois to the pretty girl in school who got away with murder because everyone thought she was so cute!

      I’ll have to look into Beagle Paws!


  • She is a beauty!! And oy! on eating all that dog food!!!

    Visiting today from Freedom Fridays. 🙂

  • Oh my goodness…how could anyone NOT click on the picture of your sweet pup? Absolutely adorable…you just made my day! 🙂

  • I too love beagles and mine is a little side kick just like yours. We got our first beagle 4 years ago. We adopted Gracie as a rescue. She taught us the ropes with beagles and their nose. A year ago we got Ruby as a pup. WE are totally in love with them. Ruby just “celebrated” her first birthday this week.

    • I went to your site and saw your beautiful Beagles! They would be great friends with Lois. Ruby has beautiful ears!

  • Hi, your dog is so cute! I love the name for her. She is your best friend! I saw it on my turn for us.

    She is just too cute!! A beagle that doesn’t howl??? wow you’re lucky LOL


  • Lois Lane, huh? Do you have a Super man in the house, too? Love how she has that “look”- like she is your new best friend. What fun pictures- xo Diana

    • Actually, two little boys hated all girls, but they loved Superman and decided that if Lois Lane was good enough for the Man of Steel, it would do for their dog!

  • She is a star. Lois the beagle is a darling companion. My two took a page from her book and got into a bag of cat food while I was asleep last night. They did it very quietly too. I have commented on the article. xo, olive

  • Ohhhhhh, what a precious Dear-Doggie! 🙂

    She must bring you hours and hours of Joy.


  • Wonderful pictures of a happy dogs’ life. Fun blog!

  • Great photos of Lois! I love the ears in mid air capture.
    Oh how I’d love to take my dog on the beach. I see others breaking the rules all the time, but I know if I do it, I’ll get fined. I think my Coco is part beagle. She sees the world through her nose. Going anywhere with her is like taking a Hoover for a walk. She would have made a good tracker.
