I'll let the photos do the talking today, but let it be known that beagles are con artists.
Especially Mr. Droopy McPitiful here, also known as my mother and father-in-law's dog, Charlie.
First, they lure you in by looking all innocent and sweet. Nope, just hanging out on the rug. Not an ulterior motive in sight.
Then he raises his head for maximum droopage of the lower rims of his eyes. Still, he pretends to be completely bored of your presence. Yawning is sometimes witnessed.
Next, he pulls out the big guns. By surreptitiously rolling over and exposing his velvet-lined belly, he knows that you are powerless to resist his charm. The Roll Over is sometimes preceded by a forlorn glance off into the distance.
Yeah, you're toast. Just try to keep yourself from diving in and rubbing that soft belly, pulling on those velveteen ears, and making ooshy-gooshy-squooshy noises right into that sad face. I dare you.
Told ya. Con artist. Do not be fooled.
I love it! Is the beagle yours? They really can get most anything they want. It takes a strong will to fend off beagle eyes.

Ha! My beagle is the same way! When people come over he acts just like that!!! Also they are excellent photos! Captures the beagle perfectly!
My dog is a beagle/basset mix, and when he gives me those melty brown eyes there is no way I can resist them!!! Especially when he add his ultimate weapon, the downcast look with whimper cry, I know I'm doomed and I have to scratch his belly and give him a treat at the same time.
Mine is the same way but it's mostly just whimpering and wagging the tail!
I have 2 beagle con artists and a basset who is a master con artist. Talk about having my hands full. 😀 I wouldn't have it any other way. All 3 are rescues. 😀 <3 them!
Adorable! We cant resist our beagle when he makes some of the same looks. And who can resist rubbing those big soft ears? 🙂
What a heartbreaker! I love Beagles. A friend of mine came home one evening to find out that her Beagle, Titus, and his bad to the bone brother, Beauregard no-regard had eaten their couch. Yes, you read that correctly. They ate the couch and then threw it up EVERYWHERE! She said it looked like they had a frat party while she was gone... Never a dull moment with a beagle.
My cousin's beagle, Duke, once jumped onto the dining room table, without warning and landed square on the Easter ham...
The beagle I mean! Yikes...
NOT that there's anything wrong with that.
Now that's funny!!
I dated someone once who had a beagle. He was terribly sweet.
Those Eyes! What a cutie! Great pictures, Erin!
Thanks, Kami! He's a heartbreaker.
