A Cat Was Involved: Sneak Peek

“Chet—let’s get a move on, buddy.”

Chet? That was me, and getting a move on was my kind of thing. Plus here at K-9 school they were big fans of coming after your name was called—pretty soon after, in fact, if you wanted a treat. Which I always did. But at this particular moment, I had just lifted my leg, and once started in on something like that, there’s really no stopping till it’s over, as you probably know. I’m not referring to the brief leg lift for marking purposes, over and done with in a flash. This was the other kind, much longer lasting, and often a peaceful break in the day, where the mind can wander in a pleasant sort of—


I finished up and trotted over to Officer Bobby Torres. Bobby gave me a funny look. I gave him a funny look back. His eyes, dark and watchful, narrowed a bit, and he wrote something on his clipboard. I yawned. Bobby opened the back door of his black-and- white.

“In,” he said.

I hopped in. Butch, my K-9 school pal, was already there, taking up most of the space. I nudged him over toward his side. Butch was one huge dude, everything about him enormous—excepting his eyes which were tiny and dust-colored—and took a lot of nudging. No problem—I’m a good nudger.

A Cat Was Involved, the short story prequel to the Chet and Bernie series, will be published in digital form August 14. (The paperback of The Dog Who Knew Too Much comes out on Tuesday.)

Welcome Bosun (who has his own matchbooks – we’ll post a photo soon), Betsy, Zoe, Mel (the therapy dog).

    LOVE LOVE LOVE being able to laugh out loud in the morning.

    Zoë just read the above. She said, “That was delightful!” She also agreed that it was just the way Franklin gets his job done. Sort of a “blissed” out look comes over his face. Snicker

    Also on Facebook a friend put up a picture of her Newf in his new bib.

    “I am a fragile and sensitive Big A S S Dog”

    Laughing here because that is so FRANKLIN!

    Tupper&Gilly: Peefer in the Simon the Kat video from last night may just be Masquers’s long lost brother. And, Staff, that last sneezing dawg looks almost surreal.

    Dear Rose: Thank you for the SDD and apologies for the late response. Sorry to hear you and the Prof will not be attending the Big Event on the 29th. Wouldn’t it be great if somehow all the Plunderers could go? Although, one of us would have to win the Lottery for that to happen.

    B: Every time someone mentions pies, the pie song from the movie Michael pops into my head. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXG3l4FdviU

    What a fabulous way to start the day! Thank you, SPQA. That was worth waiting for.

    Claudie is well on his way to feeling tiptop. He loves his new MD canned Kat food. As well he should. It costs $33 for 24 small cans. He weighs 10.2 lbs, and the vet wants him to eat 1/2 can 2x a day. The problem is that he is still hungry.I am getting him a little extra and will cut down slowly. What do you guys think?

    We’re meeting the big kids in Yosemite today. It should be quite beautiful.

  14. Rose
    10:52 am on June 16th, 2012


    No apology needed. Yes, I am disappointed about the big event too.

    Rebecca: Please check you SDD when able.

    Everyone enjoy your day!

    Loved the sneek peek!

    Speaking of beautiful, mom met a very sweet Standard Poodle named Ty yesterday. His owner is moving to Idaho and cannot keep him because she will be renting. Does anyone know anyone who might be interested? He is 8 years old.

    Chet and Spence are my Heroes. Love the way their minds work.

    T&G – thanks for Simon’s Cat info. He’s new to us and very true to life. I do the same thing, usually at 4:28 AM.

    Safe journeys to all you travelers – east coast going west and west coast going east. How cool is that?

  19. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:02 am on June 16th, 2012

    Mom has a fantasy of having all the Plunderers meeting at a Gathering of Wonderful Pluderers (GOWP) in Kanab, Utah, home of Best Friends. It would be fun to rent a big house, wouldn’t it?

  20. Melanie
    11:03 am on June 16th, 2012

    I love the Pie Song! One of my favorite movies. I see have to catch up on more videos from last night. I believe I will first check on my gardens and Diver Dave. Diver Dave is the vacuum for the pool. He is doing a good job.

    First for those of us who can not wear poison bug spray there is a new mosquito repellant fabric coming on to the market.

    It is made by “impregnating textiles with amorphous silica nanoparticles. Immobilized in the pores of these particles is a ‘non-toxic active substance’ that isn’t too popular with the mosquitoes”. Keeps 89% of the mosquitoes from biting. The fabric that is out now that has DEET in it (just what I don’t need) only keeps 65% from biting.

    Unfortunately, none of the big manufacturers have picked up the use of the fabric yet. Sigh. Maybe next year.

  21. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:04 am on June 16th, 2012

    Natasha, I knew we could count on you. Siber should be worried.

  22. Barb & Maggie
    11:57 am on June 16th, 2012

    Melanie, We have these vicious bugs called Buffalo Nats here that bite and make big welts on the skin. They especially like the area around the neck and ears. Vanilla works very well as a repellent. Not sure if it works for other insects.

    We are totally bummed here this morning. No offer will be coming at this time. We live not too far from a train track. There are about 4 trains a day that go by on the way to the Ethanol plant outside of town. No big deal, they are annoying for about 30 seconds. The husband is “concerned about the trains going thru”. Barb had a melt down!

  23. BearSpiritDog
    12:18 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: No one else has mentioned the train?
    Someone here is a little miffed this morning also, and if she had a tail it would be all poofed up. Seems the bank has seen fit to add on a new monthly charge to the savings account. Grrrr.

  24. Melanie
    12:35 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Barb, you didn’t want him anyway. He would be a pain in closing.

    BSD, charge on a savings account? That just doesn’t sound right. Here save your money and we’ll take money out of it for you.

    Jeez Lousie.

  25. B.Stover
    12:54 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Where I live is the train center between Detroit and Ann Arbor. We used to have passenger trains also. I hear trains often and love the sound which I’ve been hearing since I was a kid. It’s sort of a romantic-adventure sound. People are strange Barb.

  26. Staff
    1:00 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Bear Spirit. Two words. Credit Union. Really babe…do it.

  27. Siber-H
    1:32 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Thank You Spence! We are so looking forward to the short story!
    I knew Natasha could do this…she helped Snowhook get to Nome. The Rockies may be her most difficult mission to date.

    Barb, Mom would love the trains. She feels kinda sorry, but not much, for the guy that doesn’t.

    Yes, Bear, credit union. That is what my folks did. You will have a good feeling when you take your money out of the blasted bank. The best feeling of all is telling the bank why you are doing this.

  28. BearSpiritDog
    1:51 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Thanks guys! We agree – credit unions should definitely get all of everyone’s hard earned dollars. Interest is high – fees are low. Seems banks have become very sneaky of late.

    We, too, have memories of the train passing by in the cool of the evening. The sound of that lonesome whistle is haunting, touching something deep in the heart.
    Barb: Melanie is right. You did NOT want that guy to buy your farm.

  29. Barb & Maggie
    1:54 pm on June 16th, 2012

    The interest rate is already low, and not they want to tack on a charge! We agree, take it elsewhere.

    Yes, other people have asked about the trains, like how many per day, etc. They are annoying when the blow their whistle; because there is no gate at the crossing they are required to do that. Otherwise we don’t really pay any attention to them. BFD!

    When Barb went to town she stopped at the library and they had One Dog Night for her. Then when she arrived back home, The Dog Who Danced was waiting in the mail box for her. That improved her mood! Thanks BSD (which is not the same as BFD). Who does it go to next? Is it ok if we read the library book first, since we have a time limit?

  30. Melanie
    2:01 pm on June 16th, 2012

    There’s a Mel and Zoe today! Cool . . .

  31. BearSpiritDog
    2:33 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: That was fast delivery for Media Mail. Thanks for letting us know. I believe you are last on the list for The Dog Who Danced, unless someone speaks up in the meantime. Wolfie would know more.
    What does BFD mean?
    Mel & Zoe??
    Rose: SDD received. 🙂

  32. Snowhook Bella
    2:52 pm on June 16th, 2012

    My guess is that B stands for big and D stands for deal with an upset word in the middle.

    We have train tracks about a half mile from our house. It doesn’t bother us.

    Thanks to Spence for the sneek peek.

  33. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    2:56 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Great peek SQ. it will be hard to wait until August 14.

    Great day here. Went with mom and dad to a sidewalk sale at one of the nearby strip shopping malls (called Wildwood). A bit upscale, but they had some great sales and I got a triple dose of adoration from all of the people there.

    Mom made some black raspberry preserves today. Very yummy. That and apricot preserves are our very favorites (but still a little early for apricots here).

    Bummer about the train dork. We actually live relatively close to one of the commuter train lines in the DC area (the MARC train) and the tracks are also used for freight trains as well, so particularly in the calm of evening you can hear on occasional train whistle in the distance. It is actually one of the really nice things we like about living where we live.

    Wookie got a “triple dose of adoration.” I love it!

  35. B.Stover
    3:10 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Bear: Mel (could be short for Melanie) and Zoe are new Friends of Chet named up above.

  36. Tupper and Gilly
    3:35 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Barb – when Mama and Dad go to Gallup in the summer, the sound of the train whistle at night is one of the things they look forward to. They hear it the first night, then after that, it is just kind of a background noise. As a little kid, Mama lived in a house that would vibrate with the passing train – she always loved that. Kind of like being rocked to sleep by the whole house.

    And we have heard that most of those big banks have a new fee policy. “Put your money in our bank….and we’ll keep it”.

  37. Melanie
    3:41 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Thank you B.Stover. You are correct (as always).

    We have given in and started the air conditioners downstairs.

    Dan lived in Flint and as a teenager hiked through out the US. He loves the sound of a train.

    I love our small town bank. May they never be bought out. (knocking on wood)

  38. Macy the Min-pin
    3:56 pm on June 16th, 2012

    When mom was little, her Aunt Bobba in Arlington lived across the street from the train track, and mom would always run the couch to see the trains as they came through. Once, when she was spending the night, she heard the train, ran and bounced up on the couch, unaware that Aunt Bobba was asleep there. Mom never heard the end of that story.

    I wonder if Sammie saw the picture I posted yesterday.

  39. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:01 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Trains!…We here hear them all the time…sniff!…Just far enough away to sound relaxing…heh!

    Bed!…Her mother is finally in bed again so we can all stop being her slaves for the day…grunt!…She even has a neighbor kid out there trimming her hedge right now…snort!

  40. Barb & Maggie
    4:05 pm on June 16th, 2012

    We are spoiled with our small town bank as well. Since Barb is over 50 she has an account that doesn’t charge anything. Not even a check printing charge. There may be a charge for ATM or debit, but we don’t use those features. No minimum balance either.

    Barb is going to try and find out what the train concern is. You guys are right, some people love the train whistle and others don’t like it. But at 3 or 4 every 24 hours, it truly is not a BFD. And Rebecca is right, it means Big F**** Deal. My bad! (I hate that phrase).

    BSD, I love that printed delivery form on the package you sent. Plunder On! How cool is that!

  41. BearSpiritDog
    4:17 pm on June 16th, 2012

    B & Melanie: Gah. That is something we should have known. After the long phone call with the bank rep, someone here is not operating on all cylinders.
    A story from long ago had a father trying to teach his young son about the virtues of saving. After a few months the son began noticing the money in his account dwindling instead of growing. The father investigated and found it was due to fees the bank was subtracting from the account each month. Lesson learned, but not the one intended.
    Macy: That’s a funny story.

  42. OleyHowlers
    4:36 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Howdy! Great Sneak Peak! Thanks Spence (and Natasha). We now are more excited than ever to read the short story.

    Mom’s dad worked for the railroad…all the live long days as the song goes. She grew up a block away from the train tracks and has loved the sound of trains moving on the tracks, and the train whistle all her life. Now we live many many miles away from a train track, yet we still hear the trains moving on the tracks. Both Mom and Pop love that. We figure you should pay extra to live close to train tracks.

  43. Jasper the Poodle
    4:45 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Had a lovely visit from my sissy and Grandma. They drove over to the middle of the mitten to see me! me! me! NOT! Grrrr. They took off with my mom and had lunch at the Red Bird and then left again to go to the fabric store. Sissy (seamstress at a dry cleaners) showed mom how to correctly do a binding on a quilt. Boy did Mom have it wrong. (I chuckled very quietly under my breath.) I also helped mom figure out how to lay out her fabric blocks for her next project. See her facebookie for a picture of me! me! me! helping with the quilt.

    Mom has had an occasion to grumble, growl and say similar upset words. I snicker and ignore her, ’cause it’s unusual to hear her muttering like that. Entertaining, that’s for sure.

    Sissy is done with 4 chemo treatments, only 2 more to go. Yip! Yip! Yip!

    Sissy also had a tree branch come down in her yard, wreck her swing and took out the neighbor’s fence. $1000 later, tree trimmers have taken out the dead branches, cleaned up the mess, and told them a different tree is invested with ants and needs to be completely removed. She’s got her credit union saving account started for that expense.

  44. Siber-H
    4:47 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, Mom’s grandpa worked for the railroad and he played sandlot baseball.

    We love both train and airplane noise…especially choppers and fighter jets.

  45. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:22 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Fighter!…Jets!…snort!…Holy smokes SiberH, how relaxing is a fighter jet flying over-head?…grunt!

    Project!…Here is one of the projects she’s been toiling over today while her mother has been sleeping…heh!…She said I could post it here before it goes up on the shelf at the boutique because she thinks it is so “stinkin’ cute”….wheeze!…Whatever.

  46. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:25 pm on June 16th, 2012

    FoxGloves!….snort!…She says she finished the FoxGloves too…heh!….They came out really great. Its a good thing too because of all the damned work they were…wuffle!

  47. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:26 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Shut-out!…Now back to the Rockies game where they are actin’ like their bad ole selves again…grumble!

  48. B.Stover
    6:37 pm on June 16th, 2012

    I really like the owl Rio.

  49. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:39 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Animals!…Now she knows how to make two animals…snort!…A rabbit and and owl..sniff!…She’s working her way up to Pugs….heh!

  50. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:49 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Grunt!…Well, the Rockies are starting the first of their new streak…sniff!

  51. Melanie
    6:50 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Jasper, I’m glad the tree limb did not come down on the house.

    YSAS is playing not sandlot baseball but soft ball tomorrow for Hamlet’s team.

    Riö, the quilling is a hoot!

    Time for some peach ice cream and a bit of reading.

  52. Siber-H
    6:51 pm on June 16th, 2012

    The owl is cute! After she learns to do pugs, her next step should be Sibers. There is a ready market for Siber stuff on this blog.

    Jasper, it sounds like Sissy is doing pretty good which is welcome news.

  53. Barb & Maggie
    6:57 pm on June 16th, 2012

    We too are glad Sissy is responding well to treatment. That tree made a mess!

    Melanie, You are showing your sharp wit today – the owl is a hoot! Snicker.

  54. BearSpiritDog
    7:24 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Rio: That is one cute owl! What I want to know is where your friend
    comes up with all these clever ideas.
    We agree, Siber-H, animals would be a big hit on this here blog, but not only Siber stuff. There is one Plunderer in particular who is waiting patiently for a pug creation.

    Jasper: Thank dog you are there to supervise!
    Good to hear Sissy is near the end of her treatments.

    Tried and tried to post a link to Hank Williams, Sr. singing I Heard That Lonesome Whistle Blow. Maybe someone else will have better luck.

  55. Tupper and Gilly
    7:26 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Jasper – good news about Sissy! Bad news about trees. We know about that one.

    Melanie – peach ice cream? We are on our way!

    Rio – here’s an idea for you – how about quilling a porcupine? Huh. huh? Thats pretty funny, right? Cuz porcupines have quills. So your friend could make quills that looked like quills. Hahahahhhahahaaha….we crack ourselves up!

  56. Snowhook Bella
    7:36 pm on June 16th, 2012

    T&G: You’re quilling me!

  57. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:38 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Melanie!….heh!snort!heh!….I can’t believe I didn’t think of the “hoot” joke…snicker!…You are pretty funny, Tupper not so much…grunt!

  58. Rose
    7:38 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Jasper: Thank dog the tree did not fall on the house. Strong prayers for Sissy.

    Rio: Love the owl. He sure is cute. With each new project, your friend’s art gets more and more amazing!

  59. Tupper and Gilly
    7:39 pm on June 16th, 2012

    What – you don’t like the barbs of our pointed humor?

  60. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:39 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Bear!..You don’t have to keep reminding someone she has to make Pugs someday soon…sniff!…She says she knows, she knows…heh!

  61. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:41 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Rose!…The owls didn’t require any new technique, so they are nothing too new…heh!…Now, the Fox Gloves are another matter altogether…wheeze!

  62. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:42 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Tupper!…I dare you to come up with one more….heh!

  63. Rose
    7:44 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Rio: Will we get a sneak peek of the Fox Gloves?

  64. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:49 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Peek!…No Rose, I think Melanie will be the only one to see the Fox Gloves tonight….heh!…Someone here says you will have to be a millionaire to buy them though…sniff!…

  65. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:59 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Melanie!…Check your SDD for Fox Gloves…heh!heh!

  66. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:15 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Hell!…heh!…We are watching Hells Kitchen before our walks…sniff!….She hasn’t turned this show on in years. Ramsey just got to mean even for us. But tonight we are watching it and realize most of it is staged for effect, so its actually kind of funny…heh!

  67. Barb & Maggie
    8:42 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Does that mean Melanie is a millionaire?

    We are waiting for one more quilling gem from T & G and then we are calling it quits for the day. Barb is worn out. Her own fault for getting ahead of herself. And thanks for that attempt to hear the lonesome whistle blow, Bear.

  68. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:47 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Millionaire!…Melanie, heh!…No, Barb, Melanie always gets to see the photos first so she can “fix” them. If you donate stuff to the store you would know this…heh!

  69. Melanie
    8:52 pm on June 16th, 2012
  70. Melanie
    8:55 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Melanie is not a millionaire. Melanie has bought a lottery ticket for tonight. Maybe she’ll be a multi-millionaire tomorrow! If so PLUNDER PARTY!

    Riö, check your SDD.

    I am off to sleep. TTFN

  71. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:58 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Wheeze!…Well, we are off on our respective walks…sniff!…I am going first dammit…grump!…Someone here needs to remember to buy a lottery ticket tomorrow as well.. gruffle!

  72. Barb & Maggie
    9:41 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Rio, We are getting ready to take a picture and download it for Dewey The Library Cat. Already emailed Rebecca about it (or maybe put it in the letter we sent with our last check). That will be going on the boutique soon. You are right, we do more buying than selling.

    We were just joking about Melanie being a millionaire. So there!

  73. Gus & BooBear
    10:12 pm on June 16th, 2012

    Maggie, we need buyers as much as those donating. So keep up the good work buying! We will have Mom ship the bookends and mugs Monday. Rio, remember that some of us are not creative and our talents are different. We wish Mom was artistic, but no such luck. We all do what we can.

    Thank you, SQ, for the sneak peak. Can not wait for the e-book and then the new book. It feels like it has been FOREVER since the last book came out.

    Jasper, great news that Sissy is almost finished with her chemo. Hopefully, she won’t require further treatment other than checkups.

    Fight!….I’m not picking a fight (yes i am)…snort!…WE DO need buyers as much as we need sellers…sniff!…In fact having more buyers than sellers is great economics for the Spring Boutique…heh!…So hang in there Barb and please keep buying…snuffle!…I still think there is something Everyone can Donate to the Store. Just look in the way back regions of your closets…grunt!

    Melanie: Thank you for the link!

    Barb&Magpie: Love that Dewey was a true story and enjoyed reading about that area of the country.

    Gus&BooBear: Wish our funds would allow unlimited shopping. No creative genes here either, but we do know how to appreciate the fine items offered in the Store.

    Off to read – See youse tomorrow – Bear

    Thank you G & B. We sent out our check to Rebecca, and we love the stuff you put on the boutique. We are going to keep the dog cup for ourselves I think, and the kitty cup will be a gift. Daughter Kelly has a b-day in July, and I think the bunny bookends may end up going to her. She likes English garden sort of things, so those look perfect.

    Got our pretzels today, and they are delish! Will try to save one container for the family reunion Juy 4th. If we can control ourselves!

    OK, Rio, will look deeper in the closets for stuff.

    Night all.

    Oh poor poor me. This reunion thing has my house filled with Daddy’s friends for two days now. It was a party with 30 people last night, then friends slept over. Mom had enough so she went into work and my girl also had to work. Fortunately MollysMom is here to take care of me.

    Macy, I loved your picture – is my life. dry kibble!

    Rio, I was so mistreated. They put me in the bedroom because I kept wanting to go out on the terrace where the big party was. That would have been bonanza. Now today our houseguests are asked not to feed me.

    Buyers an sellers go hand in hand. Snowhook is blessed to have both.

    Last fall our water pump leaked underneath our tile floor in the hallway and the kitchen. We knew we would have to tear it up to check the subflooring. Since then we have bought flooring as we could afford and stored it. Why oh why did we decide to tear up and install the flooring this week before I leave. I’ve been chiseling away grout all day. I wonder what kind of pies B baked up today? Who cares: Baseball! Read is a noun!

    Sam: Tenzing said he doesn’t mind if his food comes in triangle form as long a the triangle is covered in cheese and pepperoni.

    Sammie!…This is a disaster…grunt!…You have to get out of that bedroom somehow and out onto the terrace where all the food is…wheeze!….Too bad Agent Wookie and Rocky the Undercover Squirrel are on a top-secret Mission or they would be there to help you sneak out…gruffle!…Bad timing, thats what it is. Bad timing…sniff!…There must be someway you can sneak out….watch the door closely and make your move!….chuffle!
