Hello! 2017

Hope your New Year 2017 is the best luck, the best life, and best year for all of you. 

Time flies too fast to catch, I can’t believe that 2016 is gone now.  This year I will turn to 14 year old Beagle. However, boss told me that it doesn’t necessary for me to remember the number of years, and I should enjoy my life day by day without worry the changing of my age.   Whenever people ask boss about her age, she always say she has been stopped to count her number since she was 19 years old, so each year her age still 19 forever. 


Did I tell you about my best friend, Som Tum, yet?  Som Tum had passed away last two years ago.  It was very hard to adapt my living without Som Tum because we were best friends for long time.  I miss her very much and never forget about her kindness and friendly smile when she took care of me.  Sometimes I felt guilty about stealing and hiding her biscuit bones and keeping for myself.  Sorry, Som Tum, but I know in my heart you will forgive me.


After Som Tum gone, my days went by slowly and sadly.  Finally, boss had to find a new friend for me, and she thought I would be happy again.  Boss was wrong because “Kang Som” (the new dog’s name) and I are never good friends for each other, but only the worse enemy.   Next time I will share with you about that new dog, so you know why I would rather to live alone without that newbie dog.

Summer Sharing

Hello World!

Jao Ying is here now with many update stories about four of us, Somtum, Thong Thai, Thongpond, and me (Joa Ying, the Beagle) plus some stories about my relatives and new friends in Thailand. First of all, let me share some pictures of all my relatives and friends from Thailand, so you will know who are they and how they look like.

I have new room for their pictures, call Sharing Friendship.   Click, then you will see them before read their stories one by one. It will take time for me to interview their owner ( my boss’s sister).  Both of them, my boss and her sister like to share stories about their four legs friends. When I hear about their stories, I’d like to share to the world too. 

P.S. This summer, my boss very serious to try to reduce my weight after she took me to the vet. Doctor told her a 60 ponds beagle need to improve the weight as soon as possible.  Therefore, boss immediately takes action by taking Somtum and me, the over weight Beagle, to go for walking everyday now.   First week of exercise was great and I love it!   However, I hate the part that there is not much food in my bowl as before, and I have been depressed about this bowl since the first day of exercise.  Please help!

Dream Bone

Dear Friends,

Last night when I was dreaming about Christmas gift (the huge Chewing bone), Somtum interrupted my sweet dream with her strange noise.  I woke up, and my Christmas gift, the huge bone, suddenly disappeared.  That was very frustrated situation for me because I could not go back and to continue my dream with that bone again.  I asked Somtum what wrong with her, and she did not say any words, but sat next to my bed for a moment.  Then she let the waste water from inside her body out!  For the Beagle sake! Why didn’t she bark to let boss knows that she wants to go outside as she used to do before?  I was very mad and yielded at her, and my barking was echoed in the dark of early morning.  Boss immediately arrived at our cages, and she thought I did the wet part and barking.  I got the blame from boss right away.  I was in the deepest depress emotion until the second time that  Somtum  performed her action again while boss was cleaning Somtum’s waste.

  Boss said to me she didn’t mean to hurt my feeling by blaming me in the early morning, however, I had to hold my depression for a while to get boss attention.  Do you know when the Beagle in the mood of depression, most of time for “some purposes”?  Examples: biscuit bones, special food, chewing bones something like that.  However, I don’t plan to depress, if boss not at home.  I always pick the right time for my depression.  Now you learn from me whatever you do in your life, you must do at the right place, the right time, and also at the right person, and if three of these meet, I guarantee most of times you will get what you want. 

Finally, my depression disappeared as soon as I saw boss came to me with two big chewing bones in her hands.  Of course, I knew which bone was bigger, so I immediately snapped it in my mouth before it too late because boss said she was going to bring those bones back inside house, if I don’t like neither one of them.  Those words kicked my depression out of my mind within a second.  Finally my dream came true even before Christmas!  

Miss You

Hello all of my friends!

It has been a long time that I did not write to all of you.  Our team, Somtum, The two sister cats, all fishes and me, Joa Ying, have been very busy for our new place.  Do I like it here? Hmm…..I think it alright, just for now because nobody around this area likes my barking, except my boss.  I think she understands the Beagle’s freedom and she said in this country we have the First Amendment to guarantee the freedom of speech.  Therefore, I assume I have freedom in my speech too.

The lady next door, I hear her nickname something ending with sound “R”, my boss said maybe her full name is “Hyena” or something like that  because her screaming voice just exactly like a Hyena’s sound.  For some reason or more reasons, she doesn’t like me from the first day that she saw me.  I assume that maybe because I’m look prettier and heavier than her dogs, or maybe she was born with hormone of hate the Beagle, like me.  It seems to me she doesn’t care much about Somtum’s barking, but whenever she hears my barking, she acts like my voice broken her hemorrhoid.  However, I can’t give up my Beagle barking, sorry Hyena Lady!

Boss keeps tell me more than hundred times that I should decrease my appetite.  That is very depressing suggestion that I ever hear from her.  Last week I ignored all her food she gave me, then she asked me why I didn’t eat.  Oh! Boss, what exactly you want from me?  Do you want me to eat or not to eat?  Well! I better make her happy, so I come back to enjoy my meals, and  Somtum’s meals too.  As her ages, Somtum doesn’t care much of her food like before, but she eats enough to live on her days.  This is the reason I have to take care and clean up of her food every day, except chewing bones she always keep in good care and she doesn’t like me to look at these bones neither.  I keep telling her more than million times, that “Just looking, lady”.  However, she doesn’t trust me with her chewing bones.  That is another depressing issue for me.

Well, I promise I will come back as often as I can to let all of you know about my days here.

Miss all of you,

Joa Ying, the Beagle

Welcome our new friends from Thailand

Hello all friends!

Joa Ying reports on her duty now.  Many people asked boss about us, and they wonder if all of us still alive on this earth.  Yes, we do, four of us still here and hang on with our routines as before.  Som Tum slows down on her activities, and for some reasons she starts to forget many things around her.  One day she acted like she didn’t remember me and the two sisters at all.  She stared at me as if she sees a ghost, and then she started her long howling on and on.  I tried to stop Som Tum, but she didn’t listen to me, instead she tried to snap at me when I walked closer to her food bowl.  Oh! My goodness, Som Tum never lost her memory on her food, that good for her, but it bad for me.

Talking about food, I feel like charging my energy to the highest voltage.  I love food. I don’t mind to eat all kind of food all day long, I happy to eat anytime any day and any moment. I can take eating as a full time job, or for over time job too.  However, boss always disagree with me on this matter.  So, each day she sets time and limit amount of food for me that is very depressing thing to think about it.

Another update new about the two sisters, they both are less active on their duties and they come up with the idea of longer hours for their breaking time than before, of course their eyes always close during their break time, and sometime they not even try to open eyes while I walk close to their food bowls.  Well, sleep on, dream on, my beloved friends, I will help to clean up all food for you, don’t worry.  Just trust in the name of Jao Ying, the beagle.  I provide the best on food service for years, guarantee that you will never disappoint on my service!     

 Boss told me about our new friends from Thailand will come to visit our blog, so as I am in charge of this blog, I want to make sure that our blog is ready to welcome our new friends. Boss tells me, she will try to post our recently pictures soon, so at this moment please welcome our new friends’ pictures from Thailand!       







Joa Ying Return

     Hello again from Joa Ying. I’m back to my blog now.  I miss all of you who read my blog. 

     Four of us, Som Tum, Thong Pond, Thong Thai, and I are doing fine.  I have many stories to share with you, but just don’t know which one to tell you first.

      First of all the two sisters have been changed from two crabby cats to be more friendly cats now. Both of them gain extra weight too.  Most of time I can find them at their basket or their food bowls. Once for a while three of us join a team to catch mice, just to show boss that how active we are. We’re not only expecting boss to impress us, but also the extra rewards is a must inside our food bowls too, please.

     Now I have my new routine, “the daily voice exercise” at 4:00 AM.  Boss doesn’t happy about my voice exercise at all, but nothing can changes my mind, because I’m a Beagle.  Beside this, I like to run around while exercise my voice.  Keep healthy body is the most of my concern.  Somtum starts acting like she lost her sheep dog life style by forget her barking, and sometimes she even forget who I am.   So, sometimes Somtum and I had the big argument.  I had to do this to help Somtum gets her memory back. Wow! that worked real good, but no one won.  However, both of us got punishment from boss by loss our snack bones for a few days.  That was O.K.

   I still enjoy watching the nature.  You know? Last summer I sneaked out to the top of the hill again.  I went out all day long, so when I returned, boss had to change the new chain for me again since the old one couldn’t keep me stay home as she hope. I came home with some wood ticks for boss to pick them out from my body before they get big and round bodies with the ugly gray color.   Boss wonder why in this world has to have wood ticks to suck dogs’ blood. Can we live without wood tick on earth?   Well, I don’t know neither, boss.

The Two Sisters’ Secret Day


     Boss let two dogs go online, this time we (two sisters) ask boss for our turn so that we have an equal opportunity as the Beagle, and the Sheep dog. Boss can not say no to us because this is the freedom country, whatever dogs can do, cats can do too.


    No, we don’t mean we will bark as dogs, but we want to share our stories to the world as Joa Ying, the Beagle, does on her journal. Tell you the truth, we don’t feel comfortable with that Beagle at all because she likes to give us the heart attack moment many times whenever she see us on our duty ( catching mice), sitting on the top of fish tank, or take a nap in our basketm she takes her action right away.

    It is our pet peeve when she put her cold nose to smell us for something as if she wants to know if we take a shower, or put deodorant under our armpits or not. That is not the Beagle’s business to check on us, so sometime we give her the big punch on her face, and scare her by our tough loud meows. Joa Ying keeps eyes on us whenever we sit close to the fish tank, and she always think we try to do something illegal. Then she acts like the main character of TV series movie “Murder She Wrote” to find out the clue for our actions on the top of fish tank. We know what she thinks, so we beware of her every movement.

   Talking about the  fish tank, we still remember that day. The day that we had to keep in secret for long time, and we don’t want boss to know about it because in boss’s eyes we must be a couple gentle kind hearts and innocent cats.

  Come closer, we don’t want to speak out loud.

    Oh! No, No! No! we didn’t try to do the illegal business, but that day we were watching all fishes swim in the water, while boss cooked food in the kitchen. It was fun to watch all of them. We looked right and left and saw nobody around, then we put our paws (without nails) in the water just to make sure the temperature was right for those poor fishes. Then we had focused on three small fishes on water surface. We tried to catch one of them. Oop! No we mean we wanted to give these little fishes a warm hug, that all.

    Before we can think of any thing, the nasty Joa Ying had blow out our precocious moment by her Beagle barking that made us almost hearts attack, and we forgot how we got on the top of the cupboard at that fast.

    We told her if she does like that again, and if we get hurt during our emergency moment, we will sue her for big price. Yes, we mean that!

     Since Boss got the big fish from her Chinese friend, we don’t really like to sit on the top of fish tank any more because that fish likes to splash water all over the place, and we don’t like to get wet.  We think all small fishes vote for him to be the chief fish now.  He is a fast swimmer, and he eats a lot of food in each day.  Who know? Maybe Someday he wills  eat one of us too. He should be on diet soon before he turns to over weight fish. 


“WOO! WOO! WOOF! I’m glad now both of you give up the evil idea about the fish tank because of Mr. Big Chief. WOO! WOO! WOOF!”

Oh! Gee we want to get rid that Beagle as soon as possible! Her barking is really irritates our mood.
