(crock and spoon rest by Gary Rith)

My pal TT ordered a red crock and spoon rest, and I tossed in the polka dots and beagle for free! Artistic license. I don't even know how TT feels about dogs, but as Farmer's Wife said: "you know Gary has to put some little animal on there!" TT is pretty wonderful, so visit her blog and learn all about her.
Here is a good beagle joke:

The Ten Commandments According to Your Beagle
Thou shalt feed me today more than thou didst yesterday.
Thou shalt teach me with food—not big sticks and loud voices.
Thou shalt walk with me every day—despite thy favorite TV program.
Thou shall not buy furniture that I cannot sit on.
Thou shalt not pay attention to anyone else but me—lest I feel unwanted.
Thou shalt love me to death—even when I bark all night.
Thou shalt not have a Cat with attitude and claws.
Thou shalt not start the car until I am in it.
Thou shalt not hide the food.
Thou shalt obey the above without question lest I poo on thy neighbors' lawn and promote community strife.

My Mom said "I'm anxious to see what your blobber friend...or person ...whatever you call those people, did".

Great pot! We once had a beagle-lab mix named BD (Black Dog). Good ol' BD was loyal as the day is long. If someone opened a bag o'chips in the next town he was on the road, but the lab in him brought him home---sometimes at 3 in the morning---after rolling in some kind of scat!
