    Good morning everyone! What a frightening situation. The dogs and the man are fortunate. A shame the cat had to die. We live in their habitat frequently.
    A fab Friday to all.

    “Wild scene” is a good description. Sorry about the cougar but I’m glad dogs and man are okay.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning,all. The man was good to defend Sasha. But they didn’t need to kill the cougar, did they?

    Howlers, glad your mom is out from under the quilt. Our mom is at the 2 legged v e t with an earache ????. We hate the winter bugs.

    I had the same reaction about killing the cougar. Were they afraid that the cat would be too bold and keep coming back? Glad the dog made it.

    I just read something interesting about intervening in a attack by a dog (if you are strong enough). They said to grab the attacking dog by both hind legs and wheelbarrow it backward away from the dog it is attacking. Evidently in this position it can not turn and bite the human either. Do you think this would work?

    I am going to upgrade my Comcast equipment. I am getting a new large flat screen t v and am going to get X-1 so I can stream Netflix. Currently they send me dvds in the mail. Who has this service? And do you like it?

    Good morning all.

    I think the huskies should not have been allowed to run free at that spot but am glad neither was killed and the man is okay. So far no reports on why the cougar was killed.

    Wait!
    Just read a report that says officers went looking for the cougar, saw a cougar crouched in the bushes “ready to pounce” and shot it.

    More sad news.
    The New York Carnegie Deli is closing its doors tonight. A mile-high pastrami sandwich was pictured which is way too much pastrami. My salivary glands were activated.

    HOH, Mom is back under the quilt. She thought she was getting better, but she is still not tip top. Kat is staying attached to her.
    Pulling an attacking dog by the hind legs is the best way to break up a fight. Pop has done that with Bella many times. She is a baby hellion.

    Howlers, I think it would work unless the dog being attacked decides to continue the fight, or if the dog you are pulling it way bigger and stronger than the person pulling.

    Dawson, That sandwich is $20.00. They have been in business for 79 years.

    Lots of snow. My hands and back hurt just looking outside..but it is time to start shoveling. I last shoveled two days ago. Sadie had been so good staying near me that I let her join me outside. One moment she was there and the next moment she was gone. I spent a lot of time driving the neighborhood trying to find her. Lesson learned.
    Fortunately the wildlife I’ve encountered with my dogs over the years were not interested in attacking us. A few moose problems because the dogs were going hassling them and barking.

    Filing!….Seems my friend bombed out on her first attempt to file for unemployment…grump!…Waiting on information from the human resource folks at the busy-place. Everyone is on vacation till Jan 3 so therefore….twiddle!

    Bah! We here are the kennel have been trying to post the starting line up for our New Years Eve dates since last night to no avail. Grump!

    The long and the short of it is:

    Charlie will be arriving at B’s easy chair with a dog dish of cahors.

    Ole Doc plans to enjoy ML’s company,

    Jr.’s date with Kat will be chaperoned by Whitey-Lance who knows how to get lost at the right and wrong times.

    Wee Nigel is busy slicking his ears back to impress Sassy.

    Beau, you’re Belle Starr’s date according to a pmail we received from Luna from the Other Side of the Bridge. It seems she trusts you.

    Also according to Luna, Rio is our Lady’s date on account of the former not being trusted.

    That brings us to the last of Luna’s instructions. Because it is highly likely that we will need to call on the legal services of Teddy’s Paw at some point in the evening, we will be picking him up in the dog truck in all our clip-on bowtie glory. Having Teddy’s Paw as our date is a time saver.

    Sassy will be here with me, bringing in the new year quietly at home. We can’t wait for 2016 to be gone! Terrible year for soooo many reasons!

    Wee Nigel, you are welcome to stop by!

    Quite an impressive starting line-up Thieves. And I am very honored to be a guest of honor. Reasonable fees will apply for any legal services provided, and yes, I do accept payment in Slim Jims.

    Will anyone be blurring in to the quilt shop for their party? I am baking an Applesauce Spice Bundt cake from the Blue Ribbon Winners-State Fair Recipes cook book. It has been well received in the past. I make a lemon curd to go over it but it is just fine with whipped cream also!

    WTD!…Someone here should get a reasonable fee for constantly teaching Mother how to use her new Jitterbug fone…snuffle!…She received a charger for the car today (for free!) and was in a flutter about it. How to use it and why did they send it….yeeep!…Then she was concerned because she only has used 11 minutes and still has over 400 left…grunt!….Someone had to calm her down and explain all was right with the world once again…heh!heh!…So what is your going reasonable fee anyway Mr. WTD….snort!

    Bundt!…My friend has never tried to make a bundt cake…snort!…It intimidates her beyond belief…sniff!…Plus I think her bundt pan is packed away good and tight right now. We may come across it starting next week when all things packed will become unpacke, then given away, or thrown away or put in a box for the big Sale…snuffle!

    10:10 pm on December 30th, 2016

    Rio, Why are you having a big sale? I thought you did that before you moved back to your home?

    Also, I don’t think a bundt cake would be any harder than a regular cake. It is just a different shaped pan, right?

    Heading to bed in a minute. Night all.

    Teddy’s Paw: Deal! We also got our paws on enough clip on bow ties for us, you, Teddy’s maw and Teddy.

    Staff: Yes! We will blur by the quilt shop. We want to put the treadle to the metal to see if it corrners like it’s on rails.

    Excellent! It’s a good thing we were able to, er, procure clip on bow ties in bulk. They’re cheaper that way. Heh.

    Staff!…Comfort is my one concern…sniff!…If a private jet flown by a super-model Kat is all it takes, then YES!…heh!

    Someone come by for me. I am ready to party like it’s 2017. Annie may come too but Belle has been a big grouchy pants, so I would rather she stay home. Come any time, I will be ready. Mom has to wok until 7, so she will probably be in bed by 9. I sure could use some New Year’s shine. Mr Redbone hound are no longer an item, sniff

    I better call it an early night tonight. I have a lot of party prep to do before tomorrow night. Those hot wings aren’t going to buy and then claim to be homemade by themselves.

    Noodles.

    RJ, I hope my momma is feeling well enough for me to leave her tonight. If not, she may have to tag along. {whispering} she is smitten with Whitey Lance so he should have no trouble distracting her while we slip away! Tee Hee!
