    Whew! Thank Dog it wasn’t a quiz about quilting.

    Good morning All!

    Or cooking! Good Morning, OH!

    Now comes Rio’s chance to show his stuff, and wing a pawtographed book for his friend.

    I think I should win a signed copy of Dog Who just for putting up with baseball.

    Good morning all.

    Oh Oh, baseball again. Do we sense a trend here? All we can say is that we know lifetime ba means lifetime batting average. Yea for us! Do we get a prize for that?

    Not exactly a pop quiz if we have until tomorrow…..

  7. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:08 am on May 8th, 2012

    Easy!.. Everyone will get this one right…sniff!…How do you win over Admin with an answer, thats the real question…grunt!

  8. Rose
    10:10 am on May 8th, 2012

    Masquers, my friend, I have a question. Are you very far from Seattle?

  9. Elliot
    10:17 am on May 8th, 2012

    I am in Minneapolis. I have just met Dawson and Staff. So far, they’re ok. Should I give them a sheepskin massage or not?

  10. Rose
    10:28 am on May 8th, 2012

    Elliot: I think that would be a nice way to welcome them, and you never know what they might give you in return…. 🙂

    Elliot! Welcome back!

    I wonder if we are allows to use son in laws as resources?

    10:44 am on May 8th, 2012

    My girl comes home today! She has finally come to her senses and is leaving that stupid college place and never going back.

    I hope she isn’t going to sleep until noon when she should be up and packing up her last stuff. She should be on the road right now! NOW!

  14. Staff

    Elliot, so far, is a one woman massage kat. We are working on him to see if we can expand his client base.

  15. Rose
    10:56 am on May 8th, 2012

    Sammy, I am so happy for you! I think you are going to have a great summer with your girl!

    10:57 am on May 8th, 2012

    I really do think Stover deserves a signed copy of one of Chet’s books for putting up with baseball.

    Elliot, No, You don’t want to spoil them. The chances of their kats learning to give massages are about as remote as me turning into a dog that comes when called.

    Wolfie, Yes

    The Red Sox won their game last night. The Rockies did not.
    BASEBALL mandate!

  18. Tupper and Gilly
    11:00 am on May 8th, 2012

    What an easy quiz – what they all have in common is that they are all grown men who willingly put on silly clothes and play a kids’ game in front of a lot of peanut-munching, hot dog-eating, beer-drinking rowdy crowd of people (and some baseball fan dogs).

    When we win, we will have our book sent to our local (little) library, where they don’t have the sense to carry books by the Mighty Quinn.

  19. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:01 am on May 8th, 2012

    SiberH!…I though Beau and I were the only guys who belonged to the Don’t Come When They Call You Club…heh!heh!

  20. Siber-H
    11:08 am on May 8th, 2012

    Rio, Most Sibers are charter members of that club. I didn’t know pugs were, but welcome to our elite group.

  21. Staff
    11:19 am on May 8th, 2012

    Heh, Maybe you guys are approaching Kat status….Most will not come when called either.

    (Abbie and Alice come when whistled)

  22. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:25 am on May 8th, 2012

    Club!…Here is a prime example…heh!…My friend came out of the bedroom this morning and saw Beau leaning up against the wall sitting the same way I do when I want to nap….snort!… Meanwhile her mother was at the back door calling Beau over and over to go outside…chuffle!……He was totally ignoring her mother on purpose….chorkel!

  23. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:27 am on May 8th, 2012

    Quiz!…I sent Spencer my answer…sniff!…This is a real quiz, isn’t it?..grunt!…There is a real prize, right?…heh!

  24. Tupper and Gilly
    11:37 am on May 8th, 2012

    Rio – Basil and Sage told us to tell you don’t bother – they are going to win the prize – tee hee

    On another subject:
    Maurice Sendak, the children’s book author and illustrator who saw the sometimes-dark side of childhood in books like “Where the Wild Things Are” and “In the Night Kitchen,” died early Tuesday. He was 83 and lived in Ridgefield, Conn.

  25. Siber-H
    11:39 am on May 8th, 2012

    Rio, Yes

    Mom has actually taught me to some when called by using the word for treat instead of the word “come”. The big drawback to this method is that she has to have a treat in her hand to give me when I perform this wonderous trick. Mom always has treats in her pocket when we go to the dog park.

  26. B.Stover
    11:39 am on May 8th, 2012

    Thank you SH!

    Wolfie: If I had a resource, I’d use it. I did some research on all four players and it was quite interesting but I can’t find what they have in common.

  27. Barb & Maggie
    11:53 am on May 8th, 2012

    Probably something like they all started in the same minor league, or they are all left handed.

    BTW, Our chickens come when called, en masse, not by individual name.

    Time to do yard work. BBL

  28. Masquers
    11:57 am on May 8th, 2012

    Hi Rose: Not far…as the crow flies. About midway between there and Vancouver BC.
    Elliot: We are all very impressed with your talents. And, a kat who travels too, quite rare.
    Rio: You finished the quiz so soon? Still pondering here.

  29. OleyHowlers
    12:08 pm on May 8th, 2012

    We always come when called. As a matter of fact, Pop called us to come this morning, and we will eventually make our way there.

  30. OleyHowlers
    12:10 pm on May 8th, 2012

    We turned in our quiz answer early early early. This was easy, but Rio is right that it will need to be worded in a manner that Admin will like.

    12:24 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Someone here went outside to view the Moon last night, but could not find it in a sky filled with Trillions of Stars. I know…I didn’t believe it either.

    I never come when called.

  32. B.Stover
    12:25 pm on May 8th, 2012

    I sent in my answer to the quiz also. Heh!

    Whew, Secret Mission COMPLETED!

    Now I need a nap or three. The Royals’ Mum is coming up today to deliver the things that I’m taking to the wedding! The Royals’ Dad is doing the ceremony! They leave on Friday and Zoe and my sister leave on Friday. Thursday? ME ME ME ME ME ME ME
    (taking a cue from Riö)

    I still haven’t caught up with yesterday’s posts.

    Riö, I see you got your SDD!

    Bella, please check your SDD.

  37. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:46 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Melanie!…I am speechless beyond measure…snort!

  38. Barb & Maggie
    12:57 pm on May 8th, 2012

    We read the horrible article by the HSUS, but couldn’t go any further and watch the video. The problem goes deeper than just the companies that operate large scale. What is wrong with people that abuse baby animals for “fun”? There really must be a lot of sick people who are attracted to these jobs. It is an indication of big problems in our society.

  39. Rose
    1:10 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Belle Starr, are you there?

  40. BearSpiritDog

    We are with Barb. My stomach is turning.

  41. Mollypop's Mom
    1:24 pm on May 8th, 2012

    I know Sammie has her nose glued to the window, waiting for her girl to come home. I just got a text from her girl, she is up and packing, and will arrive around 4 p.m. So Sammie should go take a nap.

    I’m leaving now to go to Sammie’s. This will be a fun day!

  42. OleyHowlers
    1:24 pm on May 8th, 2012

    We also could not read much of that article, but saw enough to break our hearts and really appreciate the humane wonderful producers that we have found.

  43. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:37 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Pigs!…Pigs are people too!…dammit!

  44. BearSpiritDog
    1:44 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Barb & Oley: I commend you both for taking a stand.

  45. JediPaul
    2:24 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Well, Ty Cobb and Gene Sisler had hitting streaks. Chris Davis and Darnell McDonald are position players who pitched in the horrendous 17 inning game the Sox blew. Who knew you could strike out five times in a game and win it for the team starting out the game as the DH?

  46. Rose
    2:56 pm on May 8th, 2012

    JediPaul: You’re a little warm……

  47. Teller the Briard
    3:03 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Here is Teller the Briard’s answer. They all have a 3 digit batting average

  48. Barb & Maggie
    3:08 pm on May 8th, 2012

    BSD and Oley, Barb just drove by the place where we got our pasture raised pig. Lots of little huts out there in the pasture, one for each mama and her babies. Happy pigs.

    We will not be entering the contest.

  49. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:16 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Answers!…You are supposed to EMAIL your answers to…nitwits!….grump!

  50. Rose
    3:28 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Teller the Briard….That’s not it either. And Rio’s right. Your answers should be e-mailed to the aaddress he provided above.

    3:29 pm on May 8th, 2012

    B&M: Baby pigs are soooo cute! Any pictures?

  52. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:30 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Answers!…3 digit batting average – brother!…grunt!…The old guys used to wear shoes and the new guys still do…snort!

  53. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:32 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Rose!…Here is a photo of a pig!…grunt!

  54. B.Stover
    3:35 pm on May 8th, 2012

    As Rio and Spence stated: Answers should be sent to Spence via email. Read the post.

  55. Rose
    3:39 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Rio, Beau is NOT a pig. That is a very nice picture of him. I love his soulful eyes.

    When are you guys going to take a picture together?!?!

  56. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:39 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Yeah!…Read the Post…dammit!…Or you might give the answer away to Barb and she will win the autographed book…sniff!

  57. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:40 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Rose!..You’ve never seen him eat before…snort!grunt!

  58. Rose
    3:48 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Rio! I suppose your “table” manners are impeccable. Then you you should teach Beau by example.

  59. Barb & Maggie
    3:48 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Rose, no we don’t have pictures. We tried to get pictures of the baby donkey a few weeks ago and were not successful there either. The mamas do not encourage their babies to get close to someone they don’t know.

    Rio, even if we had the answer, we probably wouldn’t write in a creative manner, so Admin would not be inclined to choose our answer.

    Is Sammy’s girl home yet?

  63. Melanie
    7:14 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Iliked Teller’s post. Goes right along with my thinking. Didn’t really understand JediPaul’s. But then again, I am not a follower of baseball.

    Hmmm, I wonder what Natasha would send in? snicker

    I did send in an answer. As once upon a time math teacher . .

    People will be getting SDD’s soon. Then the photograph primper will be stopping until after the wedding.

  64. Basil and Sage
    7:42 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Hey Sammie – we have a solution for your hawk problem. Remember Tupper and Gilly have mentioned that we have a Great Pyranees as a housemate? Why don’t we ship her out to you? Just tell those nasty hawks that she is your Giant White Maltese big sister, and she will gladly take out any hawks who bother her little Princess. Then when you go for walks, you can just walk right along under Callie, and those dam hawks will never even know you are there!

  65. dawson
    7:48 pm on May 8th, 2012

    The three sisters did lots of research to this pop quiz question and are sure we have the right answer. If we win we will share the book. Dibs on reading it first!
    Our beloved brother succumbed to the nasty cancer so we are sad but so grateful to be together to share our memories of our brother. Rest in peace, Christopher Drew.

  66. Melanie
    7:50 pm on May 8th, 2012

    B.Stover check SDD.
    Staff, disregard that SDD. I goofed on something. New one coming.
    Gus & BooBear check SDD.
    BearSpiritDog and Masquers check SDD.

    Dawson, Staff and Elliott’s Mom, I am sorry to hear of your loss.

    May you remember great times, laughter and love.

  68. Melanie
    8:00 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Staff, please check the SDD again. I have fixed the problem.

    Please feel free to send in the photos of your things while I’m gone. I will be working on things again a week from Wednesday.

    Melanie, Is Dan doing ok back at the rehab place? Is the med. helping?

  70. Rose
    8:10 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Dawson: I’m very sorry to hear the news of your brother. My deepest sympathies to you and your family.

    Herbkats: Callie is a beautiful dog, and just the protection Sammy needs.

    Sammy: Is your girl home yet?

  71. Melanie
    8:13 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Barb and MagPie, Dan is back in rehab, on the correct med again, and happy.

    Thank you all for your support.

    I’m headed off to bed. Big day getting ready tomorrow.

  72. B.Stover

  75. Barb & Maggie
    8:45 pm on May 8th, 2012

    We are sorry to hear about Chris. Our thoughts are with you and we wish him peace on his journey.

  76. Princess Sam
    8:58 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Staff, Dawson and Elliot’s Mom, I’m so sad to hear about your brother. It’s good you could all be together now.

    My girl got back around five. She said she and her friends were all hanging on each other and crying. Huh? I was waiting for her. Then they all left to go out to dinner. I was afraid she went back to that college place, but whew, she’s here now.

  77. Tupper and Gilly
    8:58 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Dawson – we are happy for you that you have wonderful memories to hold in your heart. We are doing a prayer for your brother tonight, asking that his journey be a dance of freedom and rejoicing, free of pain and on his way to a place of beauty.

  78. Snowhook Bella
    9:04 pm on May 8th, 2012

    To the Sisters Three: I too am grateful your are together at this time. No doubt your brother knows he is loved.

  79. Princess Sam

    Basil and Sage, please send Callie ASAP.

  80. bluecat
    9:34 pm on May 8th, 2012

    To Dawson, Staff, Catty, and your parents – we pray good memories continue to sustain you and that you find peace.

    Bella – thanks for the reading materials. They look very interesting.

  81. Staff
    9:41 pm on May 8th, 2012

    I got the books the morning I left for Minneapolis. I will let you know my review for Evanovich vs Sookie later.

    Staff!…Dawson!…Staff and Dawson’s Sister, I’m so sorry for your loss, but I’m glad you three can be together right now…sniffle!…Give each other hugs from me, my friend and Beau…wuffle!

  83. Basil and Sage
    9:51 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Sammie – first we gotta find a box big enough to stuff her…ummm.. we mean to neatly pack her in, and then we gotta figue out a way to get the box to the post office. Sheesh – the stupid dog weighs 115 pounds!

  84. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:55 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Rebecca!…Where have you been ALL DAY LONG?…snort!

  85. Snowhook Bella
    9:58 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Bluecat and Staff: The books arrived much faster than I expected. Enjoy.

    I wish Beau would smile in one of his pictures. Rio seems to smile, or at least smirk in his pictures.

  86. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:01 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Rebecca!…That is an old photo of Beau…snort!…Taken not long after he was dumped off here…grunt!…He seems a lot happier now, she hasn’t taken any photos lately thats all…sniff!

  87. Snowhook Bella
    10:05 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Rio: I’ve been busy at my busy place all day. In fact, I’m still here and if I don’t get back to it, I might be herein longer. I’m hoping to wrap up my work in the next little while. I’ve been trying to book travel for work all day—I’m going farther north than our own Hobbit Harris lives— later this week and can’t book a hotel room because my business credit card expires at the end of this month and the bank failed to send me a new card. My boss who lives in the town that I will be staying on my way to the far north village has to meet me at the hotel so can use his card. Gah!

  88. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:07 pm on May 8th, 2012

    CHobbit!…I’ve been thinking of her and wishing she would post again…grunt!…I hope she is doing okay and not buried under work like Rebecca seems to be…sniff!

  89. Snowhook Bella
    10:13 pm on May 8th, 2012

    I’m hoping we can have a C. Hobbit Harris Retirement Bash on this here blog. I have a new recipe for toor reeb floats that I’ve been wanting to try.

  90. BearSpiritDog
    10:13 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Staff, Dawson, Catty Librarian, Maggie & Dad. Wishing Chris Godspeed on his Journey. Glad your family is together now to remember the Love and Laughter you have shared with him over the years.

  91. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:16 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Party!…Well, that’s the other reason I am concerned about CHobbit not posting…sniff!…We have to throw her a big ole retirement party for sure!….Woooooo!…CHobbit, I know you are busy but please check in with all yer pals here on Chets Blog…grunt!…We miss you you little tiny thing!…heh!

  92. Basil and Sage
    10:17 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Bella – most of the time if your card is expiring, you can just give the next renewal date with the same number – for example, if your card is expiring on May 2012, and you know you get a t3 year renewal, just tell the hotel the same number with May 2015 and it should fly.

  93. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:21 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Kats!…One has to wonder how those Kats became credit card expiration experts…heh!

  94. Snowhook Bella
    10:28 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Tiny! Rio, you said it. CHH is a speck of a thing especially in that picture standin next to AJ. It was so wonderful to have her at the start of the race.

    Herbs: I tried that but they want me to present the card when I check in. It will have a different security code on the back which I don’t know until I have that card in hand. My boss just emailed me and said he drove to the hotel and paid for my room. That was very nice of him. He an I agree—what was the point of him upping my limit to an insane amoun if I can’t use my card?!?!

    BSD: Will you keep and eye on Masquers? I have the feeling that a certain cat dog and Belle Starr are up to something.

  95. BearSpiritDog
    10:29 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Royals & HerbKats: Callie is Beautiful!!! Thanks for the posting the photo.

    Melanie: Great job as always. Have a Wonderful, Wonderful time at the Wedding. We are going to miss your posts while you are away. You are leaving on Thursday, right?

  96. BearSpiritDog
    10:32 pm on May 8th, 2012

    SnowBella: Yes, now that you mention it, Masquers has been texting more than usual.

  97. Snowhook Bella
    10:35 pm on May 8th, 2012

    BSD: What has me concerned is that Luna seems to be in on it.

    I’m leaving the office now. Good night to all house who will be in your soft, warm beds by the time I get home.

  98. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:41 pm on May 8th, 2012

    Texting!…What the hell!?…snort!…I thought Maskers was at a Jazz joint jamming with some Persians….grunt!

    10:50 pm on May 8th, 2012

    To the three sisters — So sorry for your loss but it is good that you are together. This is kind of late, but I had not been able to check the blog earlier in the evening. I’m sure Alice and Abbie will comfort you as well. Wookie

    Hey, y’all! I’m here late tonight — Mom was too lazy after her handbell practice to log me on the computer until just now. Not sure how long I’ll be able to stay — she’ll probably want me to let her go to bed sometime. Sheesh! Now I’ve gotta go catch up on the blog. BBLL!!!

    Rio – we are Sophisticated Business Kats. We are often called in for de-mousing consultations, and of course, we take credit cards for our services.
    (not to mention all the times Basil has ordered catnip mousies from Amazon – you gotta know your way around Mama’s credit cards if you are gonna get away with that!)

    Everyone at Mom’s library was sad to hear about Maurice Sendak. The Wild Things are the central theme of our library — in fact, our library cards feature Max hanging in the trees with two Wild Things! The children’s room at the main library has a Wild Thing theme, with a mural on one wall, and huge trees growing in front of it. There are free-standing Wild Thing cutouts — Mr. Sendak had never shown the backside of the Wild Things, so he had to come up with designs for them, then his assistant came here to make them. Our library is the only one in the whole wide world that Mr. Sendak gave permission to use the Wild Things!

    I lost my brother in 2004, and there is still a huge hole in my heart. My condolences to Dawson, Staff, and Elliott’s mom.

    Macy, I know that you can email pics, but I don’t think that you can post them on a blog. Which stinks.
