Stan spent most of his afternoon just lying around the yard. We are having a difficult time with him not wanting to poop outside, I think this stems from his 4th of July experience (he was terrified from all the local fireworks), next year, we'll see if the vet can suggest something.
All in all, after his first month here, he's coming along pretty well.
Here are a few pics of his afternoon. (I wish I had his life sometimes!)

What a life ~ lucky Stanley!

<span style="font-size: 8pt">(I'm jealous that you can do that with Stanley. Daisy would have taken off for parts unknown...)</span>

Stanley looks quite content in his new home!

Aw, Stanley, you lazy beagle. I'm sure he'll be fine in a few days; Henry too was very paranoid following the fireworks, but he's fine now.

Thanks for all the responses. This turned out to be a great weekend for Stan. He seems more comfortable at home now and we all played a few running around games too. (which is unusual, Stan loves to lay around!)
He had me concerned when he pooped inside a few days earlier but he woke us up last night and went outside and did his duty.
All and all, a lot of fun for all of us. He's even getting used to the invisible fence (which I thought he wouldn't for a while.) He's starting to wander outside of the middle of the yard some more.

Great photos! Stanley looks very content! How old is he and what is his story again? I'm not up to snuff on the newer BW members. He has a very distinguished face.

I had to laugh...probably 65% of my pictures of Henry are of him lying down in various places and positions.

It's a beagly thing.

We have had incredible luck with our invisible fence. Henry was easy but our newest, Yodel, worried me. He's all nose and no brain when it comes to following a scent. But even he has learned to respect the fence. We count our blessings.

Tell Stan that he needs to take it easy a bit!

Stanley is around 4 years old. He was a stray from somewhere in the midwest. We adopted him about a month ago from our local SPCA. He's missing his right hind leg (although he doesn't know it), We don't know what happened to him and he aint sayin'.
After a bad bout of kennel cough that turned in to pneumonia (and an overnight at the vet), Stanley survived the 4th of July fireworks and a new invisible fence, he's getting comfortable with us and the house and he's starting to act like a part of the family. He's excited to see us when we come home and he loves playing in the yard now (although a little nervous about the invisible fence, but he's less nervous every day).
Here's a clip of Stanley running
See... he does move (about twice a day)

LOVE the clip!!! What a great beagle!! Ah, who needs four legs anyway?!!!

Stanley really was lucky to find such a great family! I think it really says a lot about the character of your children to pick Stanley out of all the dogs they probably saw at the shelter. Most wouldn't have taken the chance on a three-legged dog! Well, all those people need to see that clip!!!

Your property is beautiful!

I agree completely! Stanley, as well as his family, have hit the jackpot. What a great family!

Thank you for the kind words but picking Stanley out of the crowd was a no-brainer. WE lucked out!
My wife and I bought this cool doggie house for him tonight. He doesn't stay out very long anyway but it looked awesome. I bet he won't even go in it but we have the perfect spot for it and who knows, maybe he'll give it a try. I have to go pick it up tomorrow, then some landscaping. I'll post a pic when we get it all situated.
Yet another running video. (He's like Forrest Gump now!)
