    Good morning, everyone! Way to go chippies! Too bad that member of the nation within had such a scare, but glad she is safe!
    Have a miraculous Monday :)

    Good morning all. That policeman gets today’s medal for saving that pup.
    Cleaning out old computer files and came across one I want to share. I don’t know where it came from; I don’t think it was from the blog. If it did, I hope there isn’t anyone who will be upset by seeing it again. I think it’s worth a second look.

    I hope she does find a home. I’m wondering how she got up on the highway divider.

    Good morning all.

    Hello All and Happy Monday–

    What a pleasure to read about the little dog’s rescue (and how smart of her to make it to the median (unless some fool human actually left here there). Thank you CHP.
    Also thank you Tyb, for the prayer. I read it to Ms. Pretty and Edgar, but they haven’t taken the hint so far.
    HOH–What do you call a chicken crossing the road?
    Everyone, have a wonderful day, in which miracle follows miracle, and wonders never cease (I’ll be back after I catch up on the weekend).

    OK, somewhat caught up–a belated welcome back and Happy Mother’s Day to Golinka (belated Happy Mother’s Day to all, in fact).
    Are there pictures of these puppies? (Or did I miss that on Saturday?)
    Rio–Snow? It’s May, right?

    Poor little pup. Of course she was scared. And some #$%*+@ human probably left her there.

    What’s up with the new Friend of Chet that says “Hi I’m Betty”. Are we missing a dog in that picture?

    Nice weather today, upper 70’s to low 80’s, but 55 by Friday. We must be getting that cold front that was out west earlier. Boo hoo.

  7. Kat
    10:17 am on May 12th, 2014

    Good morning! Tyb, that prayer could have been written by me, because that is exactly how I sleep.
    The dog in the middle of the highway could have been Zeus. He freaks out if the ‘rents leave him.

    DianeC; Is a in the middle of the road going to lay it on the line?

    A rubber band weapon was confiscated in Algebra class because it was a weapon of math disruption!

    Greetings!

    Nice story. I am so happy that little puppy is safe now. I hope there is a lovely forever home waiting for that puppy.

    Tyb, That is a very nice prayer.

    Good day to all!

    Today’s GOOGLE Doodle celebrates Dorothy Hodgkin.

    11:49 am on May 12th, 2014

    HOH, Do you have a whole book of those?

    Kelly is coming up with flowers, and possibly little Joe for a play date. Joe weighed 12 lbs when they got him, already a 3-4 year old dog. Now he weighs 24 so he has doubled his weight. He looked like a Poodle-Yorkie cross. Now they are thinking possibly Poodle-Havenese cross. Will try to get some pics today.

  13. Thieves!
    11:52 am on May 12th, 2014

    LBD—-little, black dog. That’s what Joe is pure and simple. We wonder if we are supposed to double in size too and have just been negligent in that duty.

  14. Barb & Maggie
    11:52 am on May 12th, 2014

    Poodle-Havanese, our mistake.

    Tyb, thank you for the prayer.

  15. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:08 pm on May 12th, 2014

    LBP!…Beau was little when he first came to visit….snort!…Now I do believe he has doubled in size and smell…grunt!

  16. Meashka
    12:11 pm on May 12th, 2014

    I do not like that newcomer to our farm. He has picked fights with me me me, and now they make Kat stay indoors with him when they go to work. Kat is MY daughter, and I want her outside with me me me. I am on a hunger strike.

  17. Barb & Maggie
    12:44 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Measka, It is hard sometimes to accept a newbie. Lucy was pretty easy, but then she is old and easy going. She does bark at me if I get too close to one of HER bones, but I just ignore her.

    I think you are right, Joe is just a LBD and that is fine. His nickname at his house is Littl’Dog and that is very fitting.

  18. Macy the Min-pin
    12:46 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Oh Meash, that will just make the ‘rents worry. It sounds like Kat is being employed to handle Zeus’ transition into the family. Perhaps you can take up a new hobby, find new interests, stalk new prey while you have a little “me” time.

  19. Meashka
    12:55 pm on May 12th, 2014

    The newcomer thinks that everything on this farm is his, even whatever he decided to chase under the tree yesterday. We have always hunted as a pack here. Why doesn’t he understand that? My beautiful face looks like it went thru a war zone, because he picked fights with me three times so far. Those balls in the yard? They were all mine!

  20. Siber-H
    1:06 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Meashka, You can come live with me. I wouldn’t treat you the way the Blockhead is. I share and could care less if you wanted to lead the hunt.
    My mom will tell you that what I say is the truth.

  21. Barb & Maggie
    1:12 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Sounds like there are some serious questions about pack order going on over at Oleys. Doesn’t that guy know Meashka is supposed to be the leader?

  22. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:19 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Meashka!….Time to kick some Blockhead Butt…snort!

  23. Herd of Hounds
    1:20 pm on May 12th, 2014

    He will learn, it is just that most men learn slower that the gals.

  24. Meashka
    1:35 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Dima always knew I was in charge, just as I always knew Sasha was in charge (after she kicked my butt). I am willing to let this dude be in charge. But for some reason, he still sees me as a threat. Mom managed to get him under control very well in the house, and at dinner time, but outside everything should be fair “game”. I was just trying to help. It’s what I do. Mom does not know how/if she can help with this lesson.

    Fun Sun-day!

    I have been snuggled to bits by Corgis and Kats alike.
    I have also been grocery shopping, have straightened out paperwork, arranged for lawn care, unpacked bags and gotten dinner organized.
    Whew.
    But is good to be back. My Basil even posed with the tiger lilies.

  27. Herd of Hounds
    2:22 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Billy’s Buddy, you have an SDD.

  28. Diane C.
    2:27 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Meashka–I am sure he will eventually come to his senses (perhaps with some help from you, perhaps not). Meanwhile remember that the problem is his, not yours. (Also, everyone loves you.) Please try and eat a little something or we will all worry.
    HOH–The answer we were looking for was “poultry in motion”, but yours was also inspired.
    I did locate the picture of Kirby’s tail, which looks fine to me and not evil at all–kind of like a Lhasa tail in fact.
    The picture of Basil with the lilys is just perfect.

  29. Herd of Hounds
    3:05 pm on May 12th, 2014

    DianeC, “poultry in motion”, heh heh heh. Love it :)
    B&M&LB, no Book of sick puns, A lifetime of Bennett Cerf and other punsters.

  30. BearSpiritDog
    3:29 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Ah, Basil, Tiger Lilies were Grams favorite and mine too.

    Meashka: Sorry you are having Problems with the New Head on the Block (also known as BlockHead). My advice is Do Not go on a hunger strike. I know I would not be able to do it.

  31. B.Stover
    3:47 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Love the picture of Basil.

  32. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:46 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Basil!…Is Basil the mean one or is that Sage?…grunt!

  33. Barb & Maggie
    5:07 pm on May 12th, 2014

    No pictures of Joe forthcoming, in fact there was no play day with Joey today. Kelly had stops to make and thought it would be too warm for him. We will have to reschedule that part.

    We did get three pots done for the patio. Here is the bigger one.

  34. BearSpiritDog
    5:16 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Barb&Magpie: Very Nice!

  35. Herd of Hounds
    5:43 pm on May 12th, 2014

    B&M,etc. your potted summer plants are very pretty and there is room for growth. That always gets forgotten around here…let’s just say that mom is NOT a master gardener :(

  36. B.Stover
    5:47 pm on May 12th, 2014

    We are under a tornado warning. Just strange weather. It’s supposed to be colder starting tomorrow.

  37. Diane C.
    5:55 pm on May 12th, 2014

    B. Stover–Oh No! Isn’t that like the Wizard of Oz (except that was a cyclone and no, I don’t know the difference)?. Do you have a place to hide? Perhaps with many companion animals sitting on you and you clinging on to them you can all stay anchored.
    HOH–what did the math book say to the pencil?

  38. BearSpiritDog
    6:05 pm on May 12th, 2014

    B: a Warning? THAT is Serious! Stay Safe. Yeep!

  39. Herd of Hounds
    6:12 pm on May 12th, 2014

    HRH B, Keep weather radio, TV or computer with you to be safe and HIDE, Hide, hide!

  40. Herd of Hounds
    6:15 pm on May 12th, 2014

    DianeC. All the pea brains around here got together and voted for:
    I have too many problems!

  41. Macy the Min-pin
    6:22 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Staff, our Mr. Carrot could not have come at a better time. We have been without power for over 30 minutes, and he is helping us not freak out in the dark. (Well, Belle is still freaking out, but she can’t have Mr. Carrot) Mom is clutching him like a flashlight right now. She did not study the video on proper use.

  42. B.Stover
    6:39 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Thanks guys. We seem to be under an “all clear” now regarding a tornado. The sirens were going but nothing happened here. We’re now under a thunderstorm watch.

    Diane C: The simple explanation of the difference is that a cyclone forms over water and a tornado forms over land.

  43. Mollypop's Mom
    6:53 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Loulou and I had a terrible day here. The temperature was in the 80s instead of the 50s which we were used to. We went for a walk and both of us suffered. The little furball being young is fine by now, just tired. I still feel like I have been hit by a truck. Tomorrow I will post the video and the instructions for using the carrots. Just as Loulou would want me to do. She’s very good with this.

  44. Herd of Hounds
    6:59 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Wow! What power ML must have with no power since Chet’s Friends is a foto of Annie, Macy (with her tail blurring) and Belle. Be safe with the boomers all.

  45. Charlie
    7:09 pm on May 12th, 2014

    B: I am going to stay with you to make sure you and our lazy chair don’t blow away. I will need to look for something very important under your bed—whatever it is doesn’t matter—if we get thunder and lightening.

  46. Wyatt
    7:22 pm on May 12th, 2014

    ML: I would say I am on my way to be with you, but the truth is, I haven’t left you. If you need a dainty lick, say the word. I think I have it mastered.

  47. Wose-the small and meek
    7:28 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Love the picture of Basil with the tiger lilies.

    Masquers, Looks like you had a great day for a ball game!

    HRH, B, Be safe. I know Charlie won’t let anything bad happen to you.

    Mama Meash, Please don’t stop eating!

  48. Meashka
    7:55 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Well, I did come in and eat my dinner, but only because I was promised a ride to the ice cream parlor afterwards. Yumm yumm yumm! It was delish. I feel like I have a new lease on life.
    Bee, stay safe! LouLou and Auntie MPM, stay cool (try ice cream). Barb, your potted plant looks way better than Mom’s.
    Basil, pretty daylillies, and even prettier cat.
    Masquers, that’s a great baseball picture.

  49. Meashka the Hottie
    7:58 pm on May 12th, 2014

    After my ice cream

  50. B.Stover
    8:04 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Yes! Charlie, come share my lazyboy chair. The storms have stopped at this point so I don’t think you’ll need to look under the bed.

  51. BearSpiritDog
    8:17 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Meashka: Look’n Good!

    Charlie & B: Riders on the Storm. Relax & Enjoy a Bowl of cool, cool Water and a Glass of Wine.

  52. B.Stover
    8:33 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Bear: Charlie has his water and I have my glass of wine. What was the drink that you mentioned a few months ago? I can’t remember the name. I’m meeting a friend for lunch this week and I think I’ll order it.

  53. dawson
    8:40 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Meashka said everything I was thinking and looks way better doing it.

    Ice Cream!
    Maybe if I eat some ice cream I’ll look as hot as Meashka! Someone here was eating too much ice cream so decided to go cold turkey and didn’t buy any at the grocery store. Stupid move! Now there is no ice cream in the house and ice cream is needed! Arrrrgh!

  54. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:41 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Whew!….I just finished licking the dining room floor…burp!….We had steak tonight and boy was it tasty…snort!

    Staff!…Beau’s Karrot arrived today. All my friend had to do was squeeze it once and Beau came running into the kitchen. He snatched that Karrot right out of my friends hand and no one has gotten close to it since…gruffle!…He’s been licking it and now it is all slobbery and gooey…gah!…No one else wants to touch it after-all…grunt!

  55. dawson
    8:42 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Maybe wine will suffice…

    Hi Charlie and B!

  56. Barb & Maggie
    8:42 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Basil is a beautiful cat!

    MPM, sorry you got overheated. We are going to have close to a 30 degrees drop in temps later this week, so you probably will too.

    They are predicting severe storm warning for the next 3 hours here, so we may or may not be back tonight.

  57. Meashka
    8:47 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Magster! I think you left that toy under the bed! So did Lucy! Yeep!

  58. Tupper's Mama
    8:55 pm on May 12th, 2014

    This must be Basil’s day today. Look who claimed the Mr Carrot that showed up in today’s mail.

    Rio – we have two Kats – one is extra smart, one is extra beautiful.
    Sage is the smart one.

  59. BearSpiritDog
    8:56 pm on May 12th, 2014

    B: OMD…a few Months Ago? I haven’t a clue. Let me know if you remember in time to order it.

    Dawson: Keeping it out of the house never works. We end up doing a Midnight Run.

  60. B.Stover
    8:58 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Hi Dawson!

  61. B.Stover
    9:04 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Bear: Was it an “oyster shooter”?

  62. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:06 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Kats!….Kats like Karrots?….grump!…I’m going to let Beau know. He will not be happy about this…sniff!

  63. BearSpiritDog
    9:10 pm on May 12th, 2014

    B: That’s the one! Haven’t had one of those in a Coon’s Age.

  64. Wose-the small and meek
    9:12 pm on May 12th, 2014

    I received my travel Mr. Carrot today, too!

  65. Wose-the small and meek
    9:13 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Thank you, Staff!

  66. Herd of Hounds
    9:17 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Basil looks like Mr. Carrot, Jr. pleases him more than the lily.
    Dawson, never, Never, NEVER omit ice cream…it is the staff of life :)

  67. Barb & Maggie
    9:23 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Wose, We should change your name to the Small and the Sleek!

    OK, Mamma Meashka may be right. We are going to check out the toy under the bed. Big time thunder boomers going on here, with lots of lightening. Think we better turn off the computer now. Night all.

  68. Siber-H
    9:32 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Meashka, That may be my favorite picture of you. I’m glad you ate.

  69. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:35 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Dawson!….Patchy Fur!….heh!heh!

  70. Tupper's Mama
    9:40 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Rio – apparently, Mr Carrot fell into a bag of catnip before he was packed in his shipping envelope. The Wrotten Kats have been cuddling him all day.

    Barb, Maggie and Lucy – hope you don’t see this until you can safely open the computer tomorrow. But for tonight – DUCK!

  71. BearSpiritDog
    10:04 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Power just went our here too. But Why?

  72. Meashka
    10:07 pm on May 12th, 2014

    HOH is so right about not omitting ice cream, though I have no idea what that staff of life is. Isn’t Staff the Quilter?
    Basil sure is pretty.
    Mom is very happy that I am laying close to her tonight.
    Nighty night.

  73. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:07 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Mr Karrot!….I think Staff rolled Beau’s Karrot in bacon grease before she mailed it…heh!heh!….He was all over that thing for a good long time….grunt!

  74. dawson
    10:11 pm on May 12th, 2014

    B: Was it a mojito?

  75. dawson
    10:20 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Oh. Never mind.

    I was reading every other word.

  76. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:31 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Bear!…Your town sounds like this town. The power just goes out for no apparent reason, mostly in the summer-time…grunt!…It is very annoying to say the least. Do the electrical bills reflect the down-time….Nope!

  77. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:14 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Fotoz!…My friend took some fotoz of Beau and his Karrot, but she will not be posting them till later…snort!….Something about going up to bed soon was said…grunt!

  78. Macy the Min-pin
    11:57 pm on May 12th, 2014

    Power back on here and it looks like the storms are over for now. Belle has been eyeing Mr. Carrot, but I am not letting her slobber all over it right now. Mom washed an entire basket of dog toys today to go in the garage sale. Tough luck Belle.

    Nite nite all.

  79. Staff
    12:15 am on May 13th, 2014

    Awww c’mon Macy. Let Belle play with Mr.Carrot. sniff. He loves to be kneaded. heh heh heh.

  80. Staff
    12:32 am on May 13th, 2014

    You are welcome everyone. I also sent a Mr.Carrot to my cousin Mike’s new rescue husky. Mike reports that Pepper loves her carrot and is keeping it close at paw.

    Heh Alice hoped that Sage and Basil would like the carrot. We already know the Royals like carrots. I remember a video a while back of them getting carrot treats. Crunch and munch!

    Nighty noodle guys. And g’day to LizF in OZ.
