In My Mailbox

Alright so, I kinda failed on not buying books this week. I couldn't help it, they looked good... I made the mistake of going to a different Half Price.

*Note: No beagles were harmed in the making of this post. All beagles were compensated with attention/love and Beggin Strips. All beagles were provided their five minutes of glowering and pouting after said reward. Basically, for those of you that ask- Toby is shockingly tolerant of me piling books on him and if bribery is required, he is paid handsomely. And whether he resists or not, I always reward him for letting me do this. Oh, and he does have a habit of licking/sniffing the books, especially the used ones. Given time, I'm sure he would chew them but he doesn't get the opportunity. In other words, I'll keep tormenting the kid like this and he'll keep acting like he hates it even though he's eyeing the bag of treats the whole time*
