Is Beanie real? At this stage in my life I am questioning my work and my self. (with good reason) and I wonder if Beanie is real. I am asking people and one has replied, “I should hope so!.” About 20 people “like” it but almost all share having some experience with Beanie art or clothing. Mostly they had some Beanie artifact or art that they have lived with for years.
Others, who know me for years on Facebook, don’t care if Beanie is real or not or think it’s a stupid silly question from a silly man.
I have been trying promote Beanie for years, even before she had a name. I’ve done a terrible job. It never occurred to me that Beanie was not real. “Who are you?,” and she would reply, “Beanie.”
But now with the running for President and trying to inspire good will, most people are going to say, “Who is Beanie and is she real?”-and I don’t know. I have been checking her documentation and so far we have:
Beanie's mother was always very proud of Beanie. According to Beanie, "She was the best mom I'd ever want." Stand by for more revelations soon.
"My father was a simple Shepherd and my mother, a young Collie. When I was born, my father made good fun of my bean shape and called me "The Bean." Soon, the Bean became "Beanie."
I was a sweet dog and was loved by my parents and brothers and sisters and pretty much everyone I met.
As a young dog, I loved musicals. I would sing all the time, mainly show tunes.
After some short educational experiences, I took off for New York City. Performing in bars, clubs and on the street. I was now singing the blues and became a minor celebrity in the '70's, often appearing on Coca Chrystal's Public Access TV show.
I lived for 17 years and loved to chase seagulls till the end."
That's the story of the first Beanie the singing dog.
Beanie the Singing Dog 2.
Same type of dog as the first, with another fantastic voice.
How can there be more than one Beanie I wondered? Yet, there were. Beanie the Singing Dog 2 released many songs and achieved local fame here in Vermont.
Now there is Beanie 3? No, not exactly, but a new type of dog, a hound who loves to track but not a great singer yet. Her name is Charlize.
