    Good morning and Happy Mothers Day to all of our moms!

    Today, our mommy says all she wants to do is rest up from her very busy and fun-filled day yesterday. We hope to have some pictures to post because the fundraiser extravaganza was a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds. The venue was a beautiful well-restored Victorian theatre. The theme was ” the outlandish and peculiar world of sideshow and vaudeville to life. Thrill to the antics of acrobats, blush at the blandishments of our saucy artistes, or gawk at the freaks if that’s your pleasure. And of course, we’ll be featuring the very best in art and unique items and experiences to our bidders, all to benefit our animals and programs in a big, big way. ”

    We love love love all of the wedding pictures and wish we could have been there, but Mom said we had to stay home and hold down the fort in her abscence.

    Puppy-cam will be so much fun! Did youse guys see those little-bitty things?

    Howdy, y’all y’all. We are sorry to have missed the wedding but we are currently in Nashville. The trip has been wonderful, a much needed respite from daily life.

    Yesterday we went to Carnton, site of one of the most devastating battles of the Civil War 10,000 dead and wounded in less than five hours.

    We saw Emmy Lou Harris in concert at a fundraiser, and that was amazing. Today we are heading for Roanake, VA.

    Christine’s answer was more in line with something Bee or Barb might have written!

    Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

    We left early last night, so will go back to see if there were some more pictures that we might have missed. What a lovey event. We wish the couple so much happiness.

    Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there (four legged and two legged)!

    I had so much fun at the wedding! Masquers and the Prof brought the house down, I was deeply dipped by SiberH, and Masquers, you tango divinely!

    Rio, you can really put down that beer! I love your friend’s “dream ” project! Red is my favorite color , so stay out of my way when that goes up for sale!

    I might have slept the wrong way….my neck is killing me!!!!!

    10:18 am on May 13th, 2012

    Teehee. Staff loves that answer. That is her type of humor. Snicker.

    Wonder if Melanie is up yet? I expect there is a lot of peace and quiet this morning.


    Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mom’s out there.

  12. Masquers
    10:30 am on May 13th, 2012

    Howlers: Looking forward to your pictures.
    Wolfie: Your Mom is really enjoying her Road Trip. Good for her!
    B and B&M: We see Admin appreciates a wry sense of humor.
    Rose: It was indeed a fun-filled reception: jam’n with the Prof, tangoing with you, a buffet to die for.
    Neck problems you say? I have a call into Elliot…hope he is available…he has become quite popular this past week.
    (whispering) you had better be quick at the Spring Boutique…there seems to be quite a few eying the latest creation of Rio’s friend.

    10:45 am on May 13th, 2012

    Love that answer! It is funny!
    What isn’t funny is that the Red Sox and the Rockies have now lost the same amount of games.

    Isn”t Roanake VA where that colony disappeared? Be careful Wolfie’s mom.

    Happy Mothers Day to all you moms!

    Day!…Its Mothers Day!…snort!…Slurpy Pug kisses to all you Mothers!…slurrrp!

    Project!…Whew! Now shes working on another project – One Staff and the Kats might like….heh!…But not for long because they are going to have company later and take her mother out to lunch…sniff!…Her mother picked the restraunt and my friend just rolled her eyes and said, “A diner? You want to go to a Diner?”…heh!

    11:46 am on May 13th, 2012

    Good morning, y’all! And Happy Mother’s Day! Mom just came home from church with three roses — all the moms were supposed to get one, but I guess some of the moms slept in, because there were plenty to go around!!!

    11:47 am on May 13th, 2012

    Happy Mothers Day everyone. So sorry I missed the wedding but my Aunt Carol and Uncle Alex were visiting mom and dad, so I had to stay here. But I have to say, Beau took very good care of the Wookiemobile, although I am not sure what to do about the empty beer keg in the back seat.
    The wedding photos are just spectacular; special thanks to Mollypop’s Mom for getting them to the rest of us. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more radiant mother of the bride than Melanie; she was so beautiful in her purple dress. And given all that the Montague family has been through recently, the wedding was just a wonderful treasure for them all.
    Looking forward to a great day here, but will be checking back in later.

    Here is a picture from the Art for Arf’s Sake. The guy on the right is on stilts! And notice the trapeze artist in front of him. Then more costumed vaudevilleans all around.

    Admin: Happy Mothers Day to all mothers out there. Have we already covered what our own mother taught us about writing?

  19. B.Stover
    1:02 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Admin: What did she teach you?

  20. Masquers
    1:06 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Yes, Admin, Do tell.

    More Pictures! Yesterday Nana’s nephew in NY earned his Juris Doctorate from Syracuse University College of Law. His proud mom and sisters join him to celebrate.

    Happy Mother’s Day to the two and four legged mothers. Luna says she doesn’t want anything special, but we’re waiting on her hand and paw. Our morning started with her laying claim to the middle of the bed for her early morning nap.

    Wolfie: I was wondering about your mom. I bet she is having a blast.

    Wookie: Frank and Mac helped load the keg into the Wookiemobile last night. They, along with Rio, helped to empty it as well.

  23. B.Stover
    1:44 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Bear: Excellent!

  24. Barb & Maggie
    2:45 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Bear, Is that Nana’s sister in the photo with her daughters and son, the graduate?

    Barb is not a happy camper. You know how she tries to be organic with her gardening. She even makes her own compost, and never, ever uses chemicals in her garden. Well, another example of better living thru chemistry – The Farm Services guys sprayed a liquid fertilizer and Roundup combo on the field across the road last week. Evidently there was a blow-over or drift, because now all our leafy vegetables have white burn spots on them, and all the smaller trees in the yard that we have planted are getting brown leaves and then the leaves are falling off.
    A guy came over yesterday and took photos and is supposed to meet with a chem.rep tomorrow to talk to him. He “doesn’t think” the plants will die, but Barb won’t eat any of the leaves that have spots on them. She is P*ssed! WE NEED TO MOVE!

  25. OleyHowlers
    2:48 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Bear, congratulations to your cousin and Nana’s nephew!

  26. Siber-H
    2:59 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Tell us Admin. I am always willing to learn. It may not sink in, but I try.

    Bear, Congratulations to your nephew. You have an attorney in your family now.

    Barb, I do not blame you for being pissed. You are trying to sell your house and they are trying to kill your trees. Mom isn’t necessarily organic like you, but she wouldn’t eat the vegetables either. She wouldn’t let me within a half a mile of that area.

  27. B.Stover
    3:19 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Barb: That is heartbreaking. I’m so sorry. I hope you can salvage some of it.

  28. Staff
    3:25 pm on May 13th, 2012

    That is one of the dangers of living in the country. Our garden is sheltered on all 4 sides. Thank dog for that because there are spray planes going over all year. Also, once a neighbor asked if we wanted to have them spray for mosquitoes in our yard while they were doing his. The answer was NO. I love my swallows too much for that. I just would rather swat them.

    (Although Encephalitis and Lyme disease are not unknown here)

  29. Staff
    3:26 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Mosquitoes, not swallows. I don’t swat the swallows.

  30. BearSpiritDog
    3:41 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: Just shows how “safe” these chemicals actually are. Barb, I hope you get some compensation for the damage done. The problem is, it cannot be compensated.
    Nana’s sister (in the photo with her nephew and nieces) also went back to school to get her law degree a few years back. It was a wise decision considering the turn the economy has taken these past few years.

    Staff: I know what Lyme disease is, but have forgotten what Encephalitis is.

  31. BearSpiritDog

    Bear, congratulations to Nana’s nephew!

    Looks like The projects made by Rio’s friend are in high demand….I really love the “dream” project!

  33. Masquers
    4:08 pm on May 13th, 2012

    I love that…The Dream Project.

  34. Barb & Maggie
    4:09 pm on May 13th, 2012

    It looks like the garden will survive. The new leaves coming on the spinach are normal. Peppers and tomatoes had not been planted yet. Now that would have been upsetting – if they had killed all the tomatoes we have been nurturing since March!

    These guys all think chemicals are fine and they believe they couldn’t farm without them, but many of these same farmers die of cancer. There is definitely a link.

    We are just a little 5 acres sandwiched in between two big guys. We loose!

  35. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:13 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Admin!…Is Admin talking about Enid’s Laws?…sniff!…Those are always fun and helpful to read…heh!

    Rose!…Which one is the Dream Project?…grunt!

  36. Masquers
    4:48 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Admin: Where are you? We are all waiting for your answer. sniff.

  37. Masquers
    4:51 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Rio: I believe Rose is referring to the last one your friend posted.

  38. Chet The Dog
    5:21 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Admin: Here’s the most important thing our mother taught us about writing: No boilerplate, ever. If an unavoidable familiar note comes along, bend it.

  39. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:28 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Bend!..It?…snort!…Admin give us an example please?

  40. OleyHowlers
    5:33 pm on May 13th, 2012

    No boilerplate…we will try to keep that in mind. Thanks, Admin.

    Barb & Maggie, heartbreaking about the chemical sprays. We also are surrounded by a “bad” farmer. Such a shame when our closest neighbors are “good” farmers, one of which is organic. But there is one guy who owns so much land in our township and although he doesn’t live near us, he owns the fields that surround us on 2 sides. He even spreads sludge, which is so super-scary to us. Hopefully, where our little garden is cannot easily get hit by anything he sprays.

    Tonight, Mom and Pop are going to a concert to see one of our favorite young girls play. Why not us? We think maybe they don’t want to let our guys in there in case our singing would interfere with the music.

  41. Masquers
    5:48 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Howlers: Something like when Bear broke into (howls) song last night?

  42. Rose
    6:26 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Rio: Masquers is right. The one I call the dream project is the one that you posted last night…The dare to dream. I have my eye on that one…red flowers…my favorite,

  43. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:40 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Dream!…Oh, now I get it…heh!heh !…Shes been working on so many that I forget what – is what – is what – is what!….sniff!…She just finished two more projects, but she won’t let me show these…sniff!…I don’t think she got a very good photo of them and needs Melanie to fix it…chorkel!

  44. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:05 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Question!….Here is something my friend is wondering…sniff!… Someone at the busy-place asked her to make them a small bouquet to put in a bud vase on their desk…snort!…So my friend made 8 fringed flowers with a hardy stem that bends to allow easy arrangement of the flowers …sniff!…The question is, would this be something some of youse would pay good money for in the Spring Boutique?…sneeze!cough!

  45. B.Stover
    7:10 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Admin: She was a wise woman and a good teacher. Thank you.

  46. Rose

    Rio: Yes! I’ll be the first on lime to buy it! I love your friend’s work!

  48. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:30 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Grump!…In my disappointment I forgot the closing italics tag..grumble!

    Rose!…I’ll tell her at least one set will sell…snort!…Thats good enough for us!…heh!heh!

  49. Siber-H
    7:34 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Thank You Admin. I know she was a very good teacher because you are a very good writer. She would be very proud of you.

    A few moments of silence, once again, for the Rockies. gasp, sniff

  50. Siber-H
    7:35 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Rio, betcha more than one set will sell.

  51. Rose
    7:51 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Rio, can I just put dibs in for it now?

  52. Siber-H
    7:53 pm on May 13th, 2012

    I think it should go to Rose.

  53. Staff
    8:26 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Bear…Encephalitis can be spread by mosquitoes and ticks. It is an inflammation of the brain. There is an equine version.

    Rio: Looking forward to seeing your friend’s latest inspiration.

  56. Riö –The Evil Pug

    Thanks Staff…What a beautiful, smiling mom…and good natured.

  58. Tupper and Gilly
    9:25 pm on May 13th, 2012

    They finally came home. we are not speaking to them at the moment – the nerve – going to the social event of the season and
    leaving us home!
    But they said it was wonderful and beautiful and they are exhausted and going to bed very soon. They also said they had no idea how one small pug could demolish an entire keg of beer, nor did they know that Siber had some serious moves on the dance floor and Masquers – that Kat can JAM!
    Next time – WE get to go – and they have to stay home and chew rawhides!

  59. BearSpiritDog
    9:32 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Tupper&Gilly: Job well done all around!

  60. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:00 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Bear!…Are you and Maskers the ones who watch Mad Men?…snort!….We are trying to catch up on episodes. Right now we are watching the one where Don is at the Howard Johnsons trying to find Megan…wheeze!…What a great episode so far really pulls the rug out from under you…grunt!

  61. Snowhook Bella
    10:04 pm on May 13th, 2012

    I woke up this morning thinking a Rio and a line from a Johnny Cash song: I woke up this mornign with no way to hang my head that wouldn’t hurt.

    Bear: Congrats to the newest lawyer in the family.

    Catty Librarian: Happy late birthday. That was nice of you to let your big sisters think they let you win. 🙂

  62. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:09 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Rebecca!…It takes a lot of beer to put me in hang-over mode…heh!heh!…But thanks for thinking of me…snorkel!

    Episodes!…Now we are trying to catch up on episodes of <The Killing…sniff!…Baseball, brutal walks and Quilling really put a dent in our tv series viewing time…huffle!

  63. Snowhook Bella
    10:29 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Lucky for us, Rio, your friend was so focused on quilling that she didn’t notice that you were gone.

    According to Belle Starr, the wave was timed perfectly. Rose started it, and Princess Sam sitting on top of Patsy ended it. Belle Starr tells me that there was a lot of concern about when was the best time for the wave—too early, and you risk spoiling the effect, to late and the thrill is gone.

  64. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:42 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Rebecca!…So will the Spring Boutiques shelves be stocked with replicas of stuffed Bells Starr…heh!heh!…I bet everyone would buy one of those especially if the stuffed toy has a pink backpack on…chorkel!

  65. Snowhook Bella
    10:48 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Rio: Now, there is an idea! Too bad my model is willing to sit still. Right now she is ‘helping’ AJ with a demolishing project.

  66. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:11 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Still!…I completely understand the need to run and hide when someone wants me to model for a photograph…grunt!…Not gonna happen…sniff!

  67. Snowhook Bella
    11:14 pm on May 13th, 2012

    As part of her duties helping AJ, Belle Starr decided to roll in a less than savory something or other. Even Luna is steering clear of Belle Starr tonight. I see a b-a-t-h in someone’s near future.

  68. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:17 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Moose!…heh!heh!…What a smelly little trollup she is!..snorkel!…It waa probably moose crap!…chuffle!

  69. Snowhook Bella
    11:23 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Belle Starr is having trouble understanding why no one is paying her attention right now. As I walked inside—cleaning her is AJ’s responsibility as it happened on his watch—I swear I heard, “Mama! Worship me, damnit!”

  70. BearSpiritDog
    11:24 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Rio: No Mad Men for us! At least not until the newest season is released on Netflix. Until then we are locked out. Damit.

  71. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:32 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Bear!…It has been one of the best seasons yet and we missed two episodes, I think….dammit!…ON DEMAND only shows them for a certain amount of time then they are gone…sniff!…I think we missed out on two eps…crap!

  72. BearSpiritDog
    11:33 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Catty Librarian: Happy Belated Birthday here too. I hope you got the Super Special Spa Treatment from Elliot. That guy can hang out his shingle and start making some serious dough.

    We have to call it a night. Too much fun for one day. See youse all tomorrow. Bear

  73. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:36 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Familiar!…That Belle Starr wanting to be the star of the show reminds me of Beau…grunt!….He wants attention almost all the time from my friend…sniff!…And she gives him a lot, but I need some too…dammit!…Luckily, Beau likes to stay clean so he has not rolled in anything nasty smelling lately…heh!

  74. Snowhook Bella
    11:42 pm on May 13th, 2012

    I don’t know, Beau seemed very low key at the reception last night if you don’t included the dancing on the hood of the Wookiemobile or grabbing the microphone during one of the Professor and Masquer’s sets.

    I think I’m going to run to the video-slash-liquor-slash-market in downtown Willow and get AJ some ice cream as a surprise. Slurp. Burp.

  75. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:46 pm on May 13th, 2012

    Store!…Pick up some soap for Belle Starr!…heh!
