I like your writing style of drawing word pictures in snappy paragraphs. Very minor point of parallel grammatical structure: exhausting, embarrassing, and annoying (in place of "making me angry"). I also failed to see how neighbor's actions with the bath served a purpose in your beagle being an escape artist, though I thoroughly enjoyed that interchange and the unusual reaction of neighbor--perhaps belongs to a separate story?
How lucky for Mabel to get bathed when she escapes. Perhaps those soft brown eyes serve her well in lots of situations. Good job!
A charming story. We had a beagle but she was gone more than she was home. This brought back fun memories of her, thanks.
This dog must be loved. Its way too high maintenance for me. Good job writing this piece:)
Loved this story! Perhaps it is because I'm prejudice to Beagles also, and this did remind me of my little one's beautiful brown eyes and floppy ears. You did a great job of wordsmithing, and you're very lucky she didn't get lost on her many ramblings! Nice job!
Congratulations on taking 15th place in your level with this piece, Esther!
