A Cat Was Involved: How To Get It

Ms. Publicist drops by. “We’ve had some questions about A CAT WAS INVOLVED, the $.99 ebook short story on sale August 14th, and how non e-readers can get in on the fun too. The answer is: many ways! If you have an iPhone, Android, or any other smartphone — download the Kindle, Kobo, Nook or Apple iBooks apps and you can buy it through the app. You can also download Adobe Digital Editions (for free!), then download the ePub version of the book (why not from S&S?) and read it on your computer. You can even print it from your computer! Here’s the S&S link:”


Welcome Jessie & Bertie, Maxi from Germany.

    Good morning all. Glad to know that there are so many ways to get the story. We here do not possess the more sophisicated equipment, but we will figure it out.

    Lots of rain all around us, but almost nothing happened here. So sad.

    Kelly and the kids are coming today to help sort and pack. That will be a big help.

    Kelly said she started reading the Little House series to the kids at night. She said “Who do you think is totally crazy about it?” Of course said Lily, the little country girl. Wrong! It is Ben, age 6, who keeps begging to hear more.

    I already pre-ordered the story for my Kindle.

    Good morning all.

    Hey Everyone! Welcome to the new guys. We have a new FOC from Germany!

    Hi Everyone.
    Spence and Admin thank you for the info on the downloads for the e-story. We didn’t know about Adobe Digital Editions. Now comparing the two pictures of Chet up top, we can see what others have noticed, they are exactly alike…the very same picture. They should have done the one white ear for the e-book we think.

    Barb&Magpie: Nice to have some more help packing. I can see the grands now…finding little treasures everywhere.

    B: Pre-ordered A Cat Was Involved here too.

    O.Howlers: Yes! More International FOC. Chet the Jet – A World-Wide Presence.

    Did someone say Rats? Peaked, peeked, piqued my interest!

    Where is Rose? Did she get her feelings hurt?

    Just checked out the puppy cam; couldn’t do it last night on the IPaw. Rio, you are definitely right; that would have been me as a little tyke. I don’t remember how many brothers or sisters I had; I just know that I am so very happy to have landed where I did.

    Poor Sammy. Just boring kibble…sigh.

    I think those puppies grew overnight.

    We are not grumpy here. Well, Alice is grumpy but the rest of us are OK. We are watching the last day in the Pyrenees in the Tour de France.

    I just pre-ordered A cat was involved.

    I am waiting to find out where Spence will be doing book signings for A Fistful of Collars because I want to order a signed one from one of those bookstores. Any hints Admin?

  12. c.hobbit-harris

    Pre-ordered for my Nook. Am I the only one in the world that has a Nook, everyone seems to have Kindles?

    Photo of Lady on one of our walks on the flood plain. Just Lady…all my photos of Sadie are either a blur or of her butt running away. Oh I did get one of her doing her business partially behind a bush {{{sigh}}} #inappropriatephotos

    11:23 am on July 19th, 2012

    We don’t own any of the technology listed in today’s post. We don’t even have a working printer. The cheapskate has learned she can get along just fine without a printer…that was two years ago.

    CHarrris, We got out our map of Alaska to see what river’s flood plain you walk the dogs on. We know which river it is now, but we are not saying.
    Lady is a nice looking girl.

    Rose, We are worried about you. Please check in with us if you can.

    I’m in the grumpy group today with Rio.

  14. Tupper and Gilly
    11:39 am on July 19th, 2012

    We aren’t grumpy today – the humidity and high heat have moved away and the weather is lovely.
    AND they are just getting ready to go to beautiful Cape Cod to their hotel on the water, and their meeting with a certain author, and another Really Big Shew!
    Of course, WE don’t get to go. So maybe we are grumpy after all.

  15. OleyHowlers
    12:05 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Siber, how did your wonderfluffing go? All pretty now? 🙂
    Those puppies are sleeping every time we look. What a life.
    We are not grumpy either, because the weather is better and we are allowed outdoors again. Hurray!
    Lady is a gorgeous dog.
    Sammy, did Aunt MollysMom have that surgery?

  16. Tupper and Gilly
    12:16 pm on July 19th, 2012

    We checked out the puppy cam. There was a young woman in the pen, sititng on the floor. She was surrounded by happy, wiggling baby puppies, and she barely cracked a smile. Huh?

  17. Siber-H
    12:18 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, Grump about going to the groomers. I do have a lot less hair now. That is the only good thing about the trip.

    T&G Please tell your folks to take pictures. Spence will be there! We wish your mum and dad a really big, successful show.

  18. Masquers
    12:31 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Rose! When she last posted on Tuesday she said it was a very busy time at the busy place. The Smoochers will be blurring into NY tomorrow. Maybe she can drop us a quick Hey to let everyone know she is okay.

    CHobbit: Nice photo of Lady.

    I’m not grumpy…yet.

  19. Barb & Maggie
    12:40 pm on July 19th, 2012

    T & G, we second the request by Siber for many picutes when you see Spence. Hope you have another successful Really Big Shew.

    I think we should re-name the Double Dawson. It should be called the Double Bubble Barb. Or Multi-posting Maggie.

    2:00 pm on July 19th, 2012

    SiberH: What? Not even a printer! I love how you make me look like a techno-wizard. Want me to print the e-story off and send it to you snail mail? I can do that.

  24. dawson
    2:23 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Best case scenario: Rose received the ARC in the mail and is busy reading. Sob,sob. (I think it was Rose who won the ARC.)

    I don’t need no stinking wheelchair!
    Yesterday mom decided she was not going to be pushed around in the walker, she was going to walk. And she did. Today the wheelchair that we ordered through the Veteran’s Administration months ago was delivered.

  26. Siber-H
    3:08 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Dawson, Thank you so much for the offer to mail the short story. I’ll let you know. I am trying to talk mom into getting a Kindle. She is weakening somewhat. At her ripe old age of 101, she just hates having to mess with new technology.
    (whispering) I am going to get in big trouble.

    Dawson, Just hang onto the wheelchair. Mom has been there and done that and says you never know when you will need the wheelchair.

  27. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:08 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Puppies!…Those guys are sleeping again…heh!heh!…They really know how to live!

  28. dawson
    3:19 pm on July 19th, 2012

    101 years old! You are in trouble plenty!
    SiberH: Oh yeah, We’re hanging on to the wheelchair, now that we have it in our clutches. You may see me wheeling down to the cafe around the corner. Heh.

  29. B.Stover
    3:20 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Dawson: Of course, a double negative makes a positive so you could interpret the comment as indicating that the wheelchair is needed.

    3:30 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Rose does not have the ARC yet. I kept waiting to here from Bella about addresses and such. Turns out a certain giant was helpful by taking things to the bank and forgetting to tell Bella. I now have the addresses.

  31. Melanie
    3:35 pm on July 19th, 2012

    I know why that lady didn’t crack a smile. She probably hasn’t slept since the pups were born!

    I still like Double Dawsons or Elbuod Noswads.

    Today has been busy. My AC unit DIED last night as QUIT, PATOOIE. Patsy was not pleased. For some reason there are not many AC window units around our area. I went to Jonny G’s for some puncturing, came home and Zoë had found one of the last units in town. Drove there and since I was in town had to do the errands.

    Then Jesse and I put the unit in the window. It’s time for a nap.

    I can see Pugs being Royal. royal pains in the derriere No wonder he is Commander Riö.

    Need a break. BBL

    3:36 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Bad-@ss!…One of the puppies just flopped down over a couple of the unsuspecting sleeping ones…heh!heh!…ooooffff!

  33. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:42 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Wookie!…I bet Wookie was a Bad-@ss when he was a pup…heh!…Jumping on his brothers and sisters when they were trying to sleep. Didn’t he have a phase where he used to jump up on the table when he was younger?…snort!…Maybe I am making that up, I seem to remember something about it though….heh!

  34. Masquers
    3:44 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Dawson: Good for Maggie.
    What a nice offer – to print out the e-book for our friend Siber (just in case his mom doesn’t buy him a Kindle)
    We here also vote to keep the Double Dawson. After all…it’s a time honored tradition on the blog.
    Riö: Your Royal Pugness. Hmm…has a certain ring to it.

  35. dawson
    3:45 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Melanie: “She probably hasn’t slept since the pups were born.” From the mouth of one who has been there/done that! Thanks dog you got one of those AC units. The thought of you and Patsy sleeping upstairs in that heat was stifling.
    You know what? Elbuod Noswad does not have that certain je ne say qwah.

    4:14 pm on July 19th, 2012

    B.Stover: A double negative is why we are keeping that chair and, just to be clear, Maggie would never utter a double negative, unless it was in jest.
    Naptime cometh, not a moment too soon.

  40. dawson
    4:18 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Rio: No!

    Hey, it rhymes.

    Nice short nap. Fell asleep to puppies playing and knowing I didn’t have to clen up after them. Three of them were going at it playing “my mouth is bigger” always a favorite.

    Now I just have to stay awake until I go to sleep!

    OTAS and GLAD come up Saturday. “Trash the Dress” photo shoot will start that evening with dry shots. I believe up that hill where I took some photos of Patsy, then a stone wall in a meadow and a trail in a meadow with heather. I need to find an area with ferns and trees. Luckily, that isn’t hard around here even with the drought.

    Sunday will be getting the dress wet! Two areas. There’s a small swimming hole where people make rock sculptures and I found a pond that has lily pads. We will be using the kayaks.

    Looking forward to this!!

    Tupper and Gilly, If you read about those puppies they are…

    “helping to heal the invisible wounds of our Nation’s Combat Veterans. Recovering Service Members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in Bethesda, MD are engaged in the critical task of socializing the pups through puppy petting.”

    You may have been watching someone with some very serious issues. Hopefully the smiles will come soon.

    Going back and forth is confusing to my inner clock. I have been off a week since I returned. Thank Dog the computer tells me the date.

    5:20 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Mouth!…Beau and I sometimes get into the “My Mouth is Bigger” argument…grunt!…If her or her mother are anywhere near us they quickly move away because of the amount of pug breath being released during this exercise in futility…huffle!…There is a theory floating around that this is how Beau lost two of his lower front teeth…heh!snort!

  48. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:26 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Staff!…I had no idea thats why those people randomly come into the puppy pen and play with whoever happens to be awake…snort!…Good to know. Now I can say a pug-prayer for those guys while they are petting the puppies…wuffle!

  49. Masquers
    5:28 pm on July 19th, 2012

    What’s this Trash the Dress custom? Don’t most save them for years and years in a musty old trunk in the attic? Having said that…it sounds like fun!

  50. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:38 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Dress!…Surely it’s not her wedding dress they are going to trash…grunt!…That would be strange and expensive…sniff!

    5:40 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Siber-H – tell your mom Kindles are user-friendly. My mom is absolutely not techno-savvy and she really likes her Kindle. Amazon makes it easy to download book after book (DUH!) and some of them are free.

    The puppies are soooo cute. Mom would love to have one. I don’t want one. I don’t want a kitten, either.

  52. B.Stover
    6:31 pm on July 19th, 2012

    I really find the idea of trashing the dress very disturbing.

    Just back from meeting a friend for an early dinner.

  53. Siber-H
    7:00 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Thanks Bluecat, I’ll tell mom.

    Melanie, Have you got it figured out by now some of us don’t know what you are talking about…trash the dress?

  54. SnowBella
    7:00 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Melanie: A certain Giant was being ‘helpful’ with the banking just like pups are helpful when you have your arms full…

    SiberH: Surely, you are counting in dog years for your mum’s age.

    Masquers: The Smoochers say they want to deploy early to make sure Rose is comforted before, during and after the lightening bolts. Are you game to go now?

  55. Barb & Maggie
    7:06 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Me too on the dress. Don’t they keep them packed away any more?

    Barb is ready for the couch. Kelly and the 3 kids came out today, for lunch and packing. She hauled a car full back with her, either stuff she is keeping, or taking to an antique shop for Barb. We are not used to multi-tasking as much as is necessary when the kids are here.

  56. B.Stover
    7:20 pm on July 19th, 2012

    SH: Regarding the Kindle–You really don’t have to do anything; just order the book and it automatically downloads from Amazon by “Whispernet.”

    7:25 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Just stopping in…

    Very busy at the busy place, but I am feeling a little down in the dumps lately.
    Lightning bolts tomorrow, and I am in great need of Smoocher TLC.

    Yes, Dawson, I won the ARC, but I don’t have it in my paws yet. Sob!
    C.Hobbit-Harris, that is a very nice picture of Lady. You are not alone….I own a Nook.

    What’s up with this trash the dress thing? The horror!

    Bluecat, my post got lost the other day. The Prof has read several Jo Nesbo books, and has enjoyed them. We both like these Nordic novels.

  59. dawson
    7:28 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Awww Rose: I hope the Smoochers, the ARC, the love of the Prof and the lightning bolts lift you back up where you rightfully belong! I’m sending happy puppy thoughts to you.

    Let’s see…7 into 101…

    Rose: Love to you. Belle Starr tells me she is packing an extra pair of water wings for you—I’m not sure what she has planned.

  64. Siber-H
    7:40 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Stover, But you do have to know how to turn the Kindle on. Does it come with an instruction book?

    Guys, you can stop trying to figure in dog years. I am not that into math to figure dog years for my mom. I am not into math at all.

  65. Melanie
    7:50 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Rose, the ARC will be headed to you starting tomorrow. Feel better.

    Siber-H, Zoë is seriously upgrading to the Kindle Touch. It is easier to find things. Her arthritis in her hands doesn’t easily work with the cheapest Kindle.

    Trash The Dress. Yes it is the wedding dress. AND she is NOT going as far as some do when trashing it. Our mission is to have fun and the dress must look perfect after dry cleaning.

    My sister was discussing this with her co-teachers and they decided that they are tired of saving their wedding dresses because they KNEW their daughters were not going to wear them. They started thinking about things they could do with them. Christening dresses, quilts and such. They do want to see the pictures though! snicker

  66. Princess Sam
    7:51 pm on July 19th, 2012

    I can do the math. Pick me, pick me! Siber-H, your mom is 14 years old.

    7:53 pm on July 19th, 2012

    If Rose is having lightening bolts tomorrow and we know she always reads the previous night’s posts while she waits for the bolts, we need to make tonight especially good. Quick!—Someone say something funny!

  68. Rose
    8:03 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Thanks, Rebecca! Belle Starr must know I can’t swim!

    Looking forward to the ARC. Just finished a book, so the next one I read will be The ARC! Yippee!

    Godd night all!

  69. dawson
    8:05 pm on July 19th, 2012

    All I know for sure is that SiberH’s mom is at least a teenager.

    SiberH: The Kindle does come with an instruction booklet. It is 102 pages long.

  70. Rose
    8:08 pm on July 19th, 2012

    AJ, Annabelle, and Belle Starr up top! It doesn’t get any better than that!

  71. Masquers
    8:11 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Bella: Sorry, I was off the grid for a bit. Ready to take off immediately to be there before, during and after the lightening bolts.
    Rose: Sleep well. The Smoochers are on the way!

  72. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:12 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Rose!… Just remember who gets the ARC second!…snort!…I hope those lightning bolts don’t mess with your memory about important stuff like that!…wheeze!

  73. Melanie
    8:18 pm on July 19th, 2012

    As soon as Bella said to say something funny, my brain left me . .

    After what was supposed to be a relaxing day, I think I’ll go to bed early.


  74. Siber-H
    8:21 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Oh boy, You guys just got me out of a whole bunch of trouble with my mom,…her age and all. Princess Sam gets a special Husky hug.

    ok, Mom is perking up since Dawson said the Kindle comes with an instruction book.
    Melanie, The Kindle One Touch is the one mom is considering. A lady that comes to the dog park just got one a month ago and she loves it. It is her first Kindle.

  75. OleyHowlers
    8:38 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Siber, we will others in saying how easy and practical our Mom’s Kindle is. She doesn’t like to read a real book anymore, because they are cumbersome and heavy, and you have to always have the next one handy.

    We will all be thinking of you and sending Happy Husky thoughts your way tomorrow, Rose.

    Sasha is wondering how old she is in people years.

    Those puppies are addictive!

  76. Siber-H
    8:39 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Rose, We love you and will be with you tomorrow.

  77. Mollypop's Mom
    8:39 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Here’s a joke for Rose to read tomorrow:

    A woman (insert hair color here) was in bed sleeping with her husband when they were awakened by the dog barking in the yard next door. The husband says he’ll go take care of it, but the woman says she’ll do it. She leaves and comes back and the dog is still barking. The husband says he thought she was going to take care of that and she says, “I put the dog in our yard. Let’s see how they like it.”

  78. dawson

  79. Siber-H
    8:43 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Rats, Dawson, You are in trouble.

    Fellow Sibers, That is a very good point…no more waiting for the book to arrive from Amazon even with Amazon Prime.

  80. OleyHowlers
    8:48 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Ha ha! We loved that one, MollysMom. Dima says the woman must be a redhead.

    8:53 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Siber: The price of Amazon Prime will itself pay for the Kindle.

    Mollys Mom said she had 6 hours of rain already and we, with the lawns ready to ignite, have had none.

    Actually we don’t have a Kindle, but a Kindle for PC. The Kindle would be more convenient because Mom could take it with her.
    Are there any power/reception issues to consider? Our cell phone reception on this end of the Island is poor to nothing. If not for the mini cell phone tower we would be out of luck.

    Howlers: Why the yay for the horses coming in for the night?

    Mollys Mom: Good joke. I can’t think of any.

    Masquers, our cell phone reception on our farm is almost non-existent, yet we never have any problem with Kindle’s whispernet. Cell issues may have to do with our cell phone company. We do not have the Kindle Touch; we have the original, or maybe 2nd generation Kindle. We push a big bar to go to Next Page or Previous Page.
    The YAY is for the rain. We feel sad for the horses because they had to be in all last night because of all the thunder storms about. We don’t put them out in the daytime this time of year.

    No rain here either. Going to get to 100 again in a couple of days.

    We are exhausted after our visitors today. Barb is working in the morning. 4 more days after tomorrow and she is done! Yea!

    Sweet dreams all.

    Walk!…wheeze!…Someone here is contemplating walkin in 93 degree weather in a few minutes…cough!…Not with us, we couldn’t do it. But she has been trapped in a room all day long and really needs to get out to contemplate her Renter Issue that has cropped up just 2 weeks before the lease is due to be signed again…grump!

    Contemplate!…I used that word twice in one post and I doubt I have ever used it before on this here blog…heh!heh!…That cracks me up…sort-of…snort!

    Masquers: As far as I know, Whispernet works by using cell towers. I don’t know how that would affect you. Perhaps you could check on Amazon.

    Rio: All your contemplating is making me very tired.

    Goodnight everyone.
    Tomorrow the Turtleman is coming over to give me a day off. Hoorah!

    Rose, I don’t have anything to make you laff -so just come back to us because we love you.

    10:35 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Gah!…If Pugs could sweat I’m sure we would be very sweaty by now…wheeze!…We walked, we huff-huffled and puff-puffled and gruff-gruffled and then we pee’d and sniffed and wheezed and coughed and finally we came home…gasp!

    Flowers!…Then after all that she tended to the flowers by CUTTING THEM ALL OFF…grump!…She said she had to because they were wilted and this way new ones would grow….grump!…I don’t believe one word of it!…sneeze!

    Rose. Just sending you wet and warm smooches from here in Chevy Chase and hope tomorrow is a better day. My dad has started the book you lent us and is really enjoying it a lot.

    CHobbit!…I alway wonder what the flood plains looked like when you talk about it, so thanks for the great photo!…snort!…Looks sort of like a meadow to me, but what do I know…heh!

    Golinka!…Does anyone know if Golinka will be meeting up with Spencer and Admin tomorrow? Or is tomorrow a “Set-Up” day? Or was today a “Set-Up” day?…gah!…I know she is already on her way there and probably has arrived by now, right?…grunt!…Maybe she will meet them on Saturday?…wuffle!

    Oh, oh. Renters issues…that sounds ominous.

    B: That might be a problem. No cell phone tower around here. The nearest one is 10 miles away. We use a Airave which works via wifi for our cell phone. It’s only the 3G coverage we have issues with. A regular cell phone works (mostly). We may have to buy one of those because the smartphone is useless for roadside emergencies.
    Good idea to ask Amazon about reception for the Kindle.

    Maskers!…You are Number 100 tonight…heh!…In the past I used to give Number 100 a big sloppy pug kiss….sniff!…But because you are a Kat I think I will skip that tonight – and eveyr night from now on…grunt!spit!

    Heh, heh. Glad I could help get us over to the darkside tonight.

    Thanks everyone for your advice on the Kindle…everyone but Dawson that is. heh
    I think I will just order the darn thing for mom in the next few days and she can deal with it. We know we have the 3G coverage for it here.

    night all

    11:23 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Me too. See you all later. My fellow travelers are here. Now we’re off to the East Coast in a blurr of fur. And, look…Belle Starr has packed water wings for everyone!

  106. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:26 pm on July 19th, 2012

    SiberH!…The day you get a Kindle and successfully down-load a book, I will eat a couch cushion with no water to wash it down…grunt!

  107. Alice M. Johnson
    11:46 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Oh HO. Rio is going to trash the couch. Heh. I will enjoy hearing about that. I bet he blames it on Beau.

    I will have to wait for that though so I am going to bed now. Staff has to feed me first.

    Rose!…By any other name, pal, girlfriend, plunderer, hey-youse!, will always be my Rose…snorkel!… Rose, be brave this morning and think of your friends because we will all be thinking of you. I will be hoping your hair does not catch on fire….sniff!…I do worry about your hair you know.. wuffle!…You are such a smart, generous – so very generous friend to us all. I cannot express how much I desire you to be YOU! …heh!…All the time!…snort!

    11:49 pm on July 19th, 2012

    Gah!…Alice and i posted at the same time!…wheeze!…Luckily, it was about totally different subjects…whew!

    Late!…Why do those Kats eat so late?…grunt!…Don’t they get kat-burn?…snort!

    12:02 am on July 20th, 2012

    No-One!…Up to talk to so I am going upstairs to my cool soft bed…sniff!…Beau is already up there snoring away with all four paws in the air…huffle!…How does he do that?

    If you need to heal a hurting heart or worried mind, start by holding a puppy.

    Rose: Belle Starr says replace the word puppy above with her name. Snowhook is with you.

    Golinka: Good luck at the RBS!

    B&M: is there a good-bye to CL party in your near future?

    One last snuggle to Rose…

  113. Rose
    6:10 am on July 20th, 2012

    I just want to let you all know how much I appreciate your friendship, kindness, and love. Especially you, Rio!

    Good thing Belle Starr had water wings for everyone…It is raining Kats and dogs here. There was much shaking of bodies to dry off, and the Prof and I used many towels to dry off the Smoochers.

    Trying to figure out the easiest way to sneak the Smoochers into the hospital….

    XOXOXO to you all!

    Royal Mum, have a really big shew!!!!!

    Rose: I second the Howlers’ post. All in favor? None opposed. Motion carries.

    More to Rose: How to sneak the Smoochers into the hospital? Act like they belong there and apologize to no one (I learned that last part from the Herb kats).
