Beginnings (2): Thereby Hangs A Tail

The perp looked around – what nasty little eyes he had! – and saw there was nowhere to go. We were in some kind of warehouse, big and shadowy, with a few grimy high-up windows and tall stacks of machine parts. I couldn’t remember how the warehouse fit in, exactly, or even what the whole case was all about; only knew beyond a doubt, from those nasty eyes and that sour end-of-the-line smell, a bit like those kosher pickles Bernie had with his BLT’s – I’d tried one; once was enough for the kosher pickles, although I always had time for a BLT – that this guy was the perp. I lunged forward and grabbed him by the pantleg. Case closed.

Welcome boat rider, Oscar from Maine, The Fabulous Boo, Pearl.

    Greetings All!

    Boy, it is a soggy day here in Westchester!

    Macy, strong hugs going out to your mom!

    I don’t remember when I joined this here blog. 🙁

    We first saw this here blog just after finishing TFAT. We didn’t read that one as soon as it came out, because we didn’t realize that there was now a second book. Once we saw it (maybe a recommendation from Amazon?), we immediately purchased and read it. After we finished reading TFAT we were desparate for more C&B. That is when we found this here blog. We didn’t post too much at first, though. Youse people were too darn confusing for a newbie to figure out!

    Good Morning Rose!

    Whole Pack is Panting in Unison for Macy’s Mom!
    (the house is going up and down and up and down)

    Film case, hmmm, I think there was also a skull, and old case. It was good and if I had time I’d look it up.

    Must needs work for some acting dude this morning. BBL

    Good morning, All Thanks for the memories, Admin.

    Best of fortune (you don’t need luck) Macy’s Mom!!!!!

    Mom’s S-I-L did indeed have a stroke, albeit a minor one. She is getting tests to identify the cause.

    Howlers, sorry to hear the news about your mom’s S-I-L. Prayers coming at her from Westchester.

    9:33 am on May 22nd, 2012

    I think the interview is at 10:00, but is that EST? We have fingers and paws crossed here.

    Busy day here, front porch floor is getting final coat of paint this morning. Scrapped, primed, then 2 coats of floor enamel. Porch is about 6 x 16 so it is a job! Gah!

    Beginnings!…I don’t remember this beginning at all…grunt!….My friend went to the busy-place this morning. I’m bummed big time…sniff!… Beau and I watched her leave through the side gate. We both sat there with our flat heads and our big watery eyes and gave her mournful looks….sniff! .. I could tell she didn’t want to leave us…wuffle!

    10:13 am on May 22nd, 2012

    I think Macy is in central time.

  12. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:15 am on May 22nd, 2012

    Texas!….It is one hour behind me and SiberH’s time…sniff!….So the interview will be in about 45 minutes from now….wheeze!

    11:07 am on May 22nd, 2012

    Siber dear, ve have some sorry news to share vith you.
    Ve have received orders from Home Office – they have been apprised of vedding plans, and have scheduled time off. However, it has come to their attention that my intended is fan of loosing base of balls team Rocks. Is not permissable for Vorld’s Best Undercover Spy to have connection to anything that is loser. Since Rocks are in bottom place, Home Office says vedding is off – unless Siber vill become fan of vinning teams….or of course if Rocks start to vin and maybe go to series of the vorld.
    Ve hope that you vill not hate Natasha – is very sad day – but orders from Home Office must be obeyed. Maybe ve can still be friends? Vould be ok if you paid call to booty now and then?

  17. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:12 am on May 22nd, 2012

    Dumped!…SiberH has been dumped because of the Rockies slump…chuffle!

  18. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:15 am on May 22nd, 2012

    Nightmare!….The Rockies have only won one more game than the dreadful Twinkies…sob!sob!sob!…This is worse than I imagined…groan!

  19. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:17 am on May 22nd, 2012

    Yankees!…On a lighter note, the Yankees are at the very bottem of their division…heh!heh!snort!

  20. Siber-H
    11:25 am on May 22nd, 2012

    I am so cracking up here. Rio, forgive me, but right now I am not as nearly depressed as I was about the Rockies being in last place.

    Booty call would be lovely, Natasha. It is committment I have no use for.
    I am proud of Natasha for putting duty and honor before her own desires.

    Macy’s mom, All paws have been crossed here in NM for you this morning.

  21. Barb & Maggie
    11:28 am on May 22nd, 2012

    Nattie, You have us ROFLAO. We think the call of the booty is a much better idea. Even Stud Muffins can get boring, right? Especially Stud Muffins who like baseball.

    Lots of positive vibes going out into the universe for ML, aka Macy’s Mom.

  22. Siber-H
    11:31 am on May 22nd, 2012

    My gosh, Rio is right. The Yankees have sunk to the last place.
    Rose, and Mollypop’a Mom, uh, Welcome to the bottom club.
    The Red Sox, the Howler’s team, and the Twins are also in last place. This is going into the Twlight Zone.

    Welcome to the basement Rio.

    Just talked to Dawson and she said to say ‘Hi.’ She is keeping up with the blog, just barely, but says every time she tries to post something happens with the parents. She sounded pretty good though. The Turtleman is coming over often and giving her time off for herself.
    She says there was an area wide book sale this weekend for the Linden Hills Library. She didn’t get to go until it was almost over which was sad. But then everyone just put ‘free’ on the books. She claims it is really hard to pass by free books.

    She also purchased a little pet step stool for fat pugs to get onto high beds. She was going to sell it on the Mushers Mercantile until she realized it would cost way way to much to ship it anywhere.

    I just might have to buy it for AbbietheKitty. She makes the sorriest grunt whenever she has to jump off the bed.

    We read Dog On It when it first came out, checked out, and even posted a couple of times under a different name. But it wasn’t until Nana joined facebookie a couple of years ago that all things Chet began to come together. At the time Chet had a page called the Chet Appreciation Society where she posted regularly. Ultimately, it was B’s encouragement that convinced her the Blog was a worthwhile pursuit. From there it’s all history.

    11:50 am on May 22nd, 2012

    Natasha, you have me laughing. I think SH may have to root against the Rockies from now on. (Now I’m wondering how we came up with three such different definitions of “root.”)

  30. BearSpiritDog
    11:52 am on May 22nd, 2012

    root, as in plant
    root, for the team
    root, as in beer

  32. Mollypop's Mom
    12:02 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Rio and Siber-H – Thanks for rubbing in the Yankee’s standing. Like I didn’t know.

  33. OleyHowlers
    12:04 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Siber! Does this new freedom mean you won’t be coming our way for a visit? We hope you stil come; we have so many hunting spots to share with you.

    Misery loves company, as they say. But truthfully, we would rather not share company with cellar dwellers. This is looking like a year to cross off for most of our teams.

    We are feeling very good about ML.

  34. Rose
    12:09 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    I’m getting hit from all sides about the Yankees. My cubicle mate is a rabid, foam at the mouth Met fan, and he is taking great pleasure in reminding me that the Yankees are in the basement. Thanks for the warm welcome Siber-Rambo and Rio….means a lot.

    My only hope is the Rangers…..GO BLUESHIRTS!!!

  35. Riö – The Evil Pug

  36. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    12:20 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Um, I think the Giants are in second place. Not everyone is in the cellar.

  37. B.Stover

    Here’s a link to photos of the solar eclipse taken by a former student of mine.

  38. B.Stover
    12:24 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Bear: LOL! I hadn’t though of rootbeer. There is also the verb which means “to rummage for something.”

  39. B.Stover
    12:52 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    There is also “root” in the sense of eliminating something which, interestingly, is opposite of the sense of being rooted–established.

  40. Rose
    12:57 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Rio, you cut me to the quick!

    Not all of us Yankee fans are bad people…..

  42. Siber-H
    1:05 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, Mom called me and said since the danger had passed, I need to turn around and head home immediately. I think it has something to do with her credit card. I was looking forward to my trip up North and then East.

    Ok Wolfie, You can’t party with us in the basement then.

    The baseball season is upside down this year…just like the weather last winter.

  43. Barb & Maggie

    Time for a little reading and a nap. BBL

    Macy’s mom has been on my mind last night and all morning. I hope the interview goes/went well. I can’t wait for her update.

  45. Snowhook Bella
    1:35 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Rose: Belle Starr is upset with me. She claims that her getting her drivers license was discussed last time she visited you. She seems to think that your discussion was my approval. I can’t win with that one.

    Rio: Please make sure your boss takes it easy on her back.

  46. Melanie

    I hate DVDs. Trying to burn one for YSAS and NOTHING. (**&R*%RTHNKJDOPUYJEWRK J Snigglefritz and Carpola.

    Hope Macy’s Mom hears something soon. Sometimes it takes a while.

    Root. I am going to try to root out the problem with whatever is causing the burn problem.

    Siber-H, I’m glad you are holding yourself together in a time of such disappointment.

  47. Rose
    1:52 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Rebecca: Then Belle Starr can drive the new car! How cool would that be!!!!!

  48. Rose
    2:08 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Hope we hear from Macy’s mom. I really wish I had a piece of cheesecake!

  49. Masquers
    2:10 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Melanie: Does that mean we won’t be able to buy a DVD of Team Snowhook? Say it isn’t so!
    B: Loved the photos, especially the one taken through the white light telescope.
    Nails bitten to the quick waiting for news from Macy.

  50. Snowhook Bella
    2:13 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Rose: I find myself currently without cheesecake in paw, but there must be a couch cushion somewhere.

    Hi everyone – finally out from behind the Mud Room door, and catching up with all the goings on.
    We are late in our wishes, but we still want to say Go Get Em, Macy’s Mom! Woo hooo!
    And SnowBella – congrats on the new car. Mama is especially proud of you being willing to pull out the Pink Bulldozer attitude if necessary.
    Rio – your friend’s work is simply the best quilling we have ever seen, and it just gets better and better.
    Siber – talk about a catch 22 – if the Rockies continue to be in a slump, you are safe from the walk down the aisle. But if you cheer for your beloved team and they start to win – you’re toast. hmmmm Decisions, decisions. Which way will you go?
    We wish you the wisdom of Solomon…….
    and the track shoes of FloJo!

    2:37 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    T&G I hate to say this, but I think I am safe for the rest of this baseball season.
    Next year Natasha will have something else on her brain.

  56. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:52 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    SiberH!…grump!…Have you given up?…sniff!…Never ever give up in May!…gruffle!

    Rebecca!…I sent a text from my little Go Phone to my friend at the busy-place. I told her to tell her boss to get off her back…heh!

  57. Siber-H
    2:56 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Rio, No I haven’t given up, but don’t tell Natasha.

    2:58 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Tupper!…My friend thinks you are nuts….heh!heh!…She is a mediocre quiller at best – although sometimes she tries hard and pushes herself to do harder projects…grunt!

    Rose!…Speaking of projects someone here finally finished the Rose Project – which would have made 8 Items for the Spring Boutique (opening this weekend!!)…sniff!…Coincidentally, her mothers birthday is tomorrow so she has decided to give the Roses to her mom…snort!…I found out she is also giving her mother the very first Cart O’ Flowers she made because this is the one her mom liked the best…wuffle!

  59. Snowhook Bella

    Rio: you truly do have your friend’s back.

  60. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:04 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Rebecca!…She wrote back and said she had to be careful because there were some backbiters at the busy-place….snort!

  61. Melanie
    3:23 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Riö, please let your friend know that carrying her boss on her back is not good for someone who is having back problems all ready.

    Back to pouting. So I uploaded a huge file to some site that YSAS was able to download from and he’s burning the video.

    Tomorrow I will see if it’s just his video. Hopefully I’ll be able to do the Snowhook.

  62. BearSpiritDog
    3:26 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    It’s lunchtime and the talk about BLTs this morning (which happens to be a personal favorite of mine) got us in the mood. Thanks Chet!

    Great Photo’s B!
    Mr.Husky, what a relief!

    Speaking of words. One of my friends who is a sports writer says there is no need for the word that. He got me thinking and whenever I see that (the) word in a sentence now I remove it and see if the sentence makes sense without it.

  64. Snowhook Bella
    4:26 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Do you think they put Macy’s mom to work right away?

  65. Masquers
    4:33 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Staff: “That” is really interesting.

    Bella: I hope (that) it is so (whispering) Staff is right!

    4:34 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    You know what’s funny? This could be used to perfectly advertise the abuse of animals (especially dogs) and to help get recruits to end animal cruelty. Just saying. You should be posting about abuse to raise awareness.

    Staff: Interesting. Now I’m pondering the use of “that.”

  71. B.Stover
    5:17 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Just a Fan: What does “this” refer to?

  72. Snowhook Bella
    5:21 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    BSD: Referring to your earlier post of B recommending you post on this here blog reminds me of a good rule of thumb I like to use: WWBSD. Works every time.

  73. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:22 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Just!…Just is a good word to edit out usually…sniff!…Sometimes you need it but most of the time not…snort!

  74. Barb & Maggie
    5:35 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    I think Fan is refering to the blog when he says This. You probably could never find a higher percentage of animal rights advocates anywhere than on this here blog. I am sure we are around 100%.

  75. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:46 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Time!…Notice the time-stamp on the Tupper-Double-Dawson up above…grunt!…I’m telling you guys it has something to do with posting right before a minute is up and a new minute starts…sniff!…Mark my words! (not literally)…snort!

  76. Rose
    5:53 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Rio, the Rose Project is just beautiful, and your friend’s mom is the perfect person to gift it to. I will certainly be keeping my eyes and wallet open for your friend’s beautiful work. She is very, very talented!

  77. BearSpiritDog
    6:11 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    We planned to time the Moderated post, but were side-tracked. Damit!

    Rats. I was “just” going to add another word, but see Rio has beaten me to it!
    Staff! I do believe you have started something.

  78. Rose
    6:18 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    No cheesecake, so Swedish Fish will have to do. Wondering how Macy’s mom made out…..

  79. Melanie
    6:19 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    B. loved the photos.

    Obviously “Fan” has not been around for long or he would see that we do post about that very subject.

    For those of you not on Facebookies, here’s GLAD hooping in her wedding dress!

  80. Masquers
    6:30 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Hula hooping is a lost art. GLAD makes it look like so much fun!

  81. Melanie
    6:44 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Okay, I’m having a bad day. I should not have taken it out on “Fan”.

    Sorry “Fan”.

    We touch on many subjects here on Chet’s Blog. We have discussed and some of us have given money to efforts to stop the abuse of all types of animals. Several people volunteer for rescue groups.

    Please feel free to join us.

  82. Macy's mom
    6:57 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Sorry to be so late. When I got home I took a massive nap.

    It went quickly. The judge had two weddings going on, so he just stopped by to say hi. The interviewer did not really ask too many questions, and none of the ones I prepared for. I do not know if this is because she was not interested or just so darn busy. They are understaffed and files are stacked everywhere. We shall see.
    I think all the other interviews are today too, so maybe by Friday… Thanks again for all the positive energy sent my way.

  83. Macy the Min-pin
    7:04 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    So sorry about all your losing teams. Feel free to enjoy the Rangers with me. heh-heh

    Awesome hooping! I have not been able to find a hoop in my size.

  84. Barb & Maggie
    7:09 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Melanie, I tried watching the hoop video. I couldn’t get quite the full effect, as there was a lot of starting and stopping. Might just be my computer. But it was darling! Did you say that the wedding was at Glad’s parent’s home? Is that their hugmongo red brick home in the backgorund? Wowsha!

  85. BearSpiritDog
    7:22 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Macy: Thanks for checking in – Positive Thoughts continuing your way.

    Off to watch a movie just in from Netflix – Extremely Loud and Uncomfortably Close.
    Bye for Now – Bear

    Macy’s mom: Westchester still sending out strong positive thoughts your way!!!!

  87. Snowhook Bella
    7:43 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Friday! What makes the interviewer think we can wait that long to hear back about the interview. I see a stop at the store for some Swedish fish on my way home.

  88. Barb & Maggie
    7:47 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Macy, thanks for the update. Postivie thought coming from here too.

  89. Snowhook Bella
    7:52 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Melanie: I received a voicemail from Bev. She called to say she watched the video and cried, cried, cried—- her words, not mine each time she watched it. Sniff!

    Macy, we will be sending good energy and prayers your way all week…however long it takes.
    As you know, I am a Rangers fan. I figure I can have a favorite team in both Leagues.

    Today is the first day of my “Serenity Now” coming back, finally. Thanks to Melanie I identified a gluten problem and then a biopsy made it final. That was in January so why today for serenity? Well, I don’t give up easily. If I gave up easily, this would have been identified 20 years ago. I am now a believer, stopped testing how much I might be able to get away with, and voila! Serenity.

    Can a biopsy determine a gluten allergy?

    Snickering here, MollyPop’s Mom! Glad you have reached Serenity. Now you just have to read all of the labels on everything you buy. sigh

    Macy’s Mom, good positive thoughts will be continuing your way.

    Barb and MagPie, when you go on the video, click the blue HD button thingy and it should stop it from being high definition.

    Bella, I take it you aren’t talking about the hooping video! snicker I teared up and I saw it a lot!

    I finally figured out how to get YSAS video reel to him. It was much too big to mail. I ended up using a website which uploads your file to it and then sends an email to the person it’s going to with the link. Thanks to SQ’s PR person.

    Now I have to upload the Snowhook video to the site so she can get it. Thing is it will take a great deal of time so I’ll have to do it tomorrow night. I’m hitting the sack soon.

    Melanie: as a fellow hooper, I’m sure Bev would appreciate GLADs hooping video.

    Rose!…I did not post a photo of the Rose Project on this here blog. Its not the same one you have, it is totally different except for it has some roses on it…grunt!…I’m wondering where you could have seen it….hmmmm?…A mystery indeed!

    Phillip!…Phillips!…sniff!….She says we get to watch him sing at least one song before we go and walk…grunt!…He is a Finalist. Up against an amazing 16 year old girl…wheeze!

    Siber-H – The biopsy was done on skin problems. Melanie can address the other kind of biopsy – which I refused to have done. I felt the skin biopsy was enough to stop me from eating gluten products.

    Thanks Mollypop’s Mom, I was asking because mom has a friend that could possibly have a gluten allergy.

    I have pictures of projects made by Rio’s friend. I can’t prove it, but I think it is impossible to choose a favorite. They are pugtacular.

    The Comanche Nation has made Johnny Depp an honorary member of the tribe. The adoption took place in Albuquerque.

    I predict this movie, which I shall not name, will flop at the box office

    Mom and Pop just got home from a viewing. Somehow food and wine were involved.
    Macy, paws and fingers are still crossed for you.
    Bedtime here. G’nite!

    10:03 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Wheeze!…We are home again!…cough!sneeze!….The Rockies are still losing…grump!

    Score!…Whooohooo!…The Rockies finally got past 4 runs. It is now 5 ta 7 with Giambi getting ready to bat…chuffle!….The Tide is Turning – I can feel it in my sore paws…wheeze!

    Rio: 15 out of 16 sled dogs can’t be wrong. Who was the hold out? Annabelle—she was taking a nap when the votes were cast.

    I took a class on adrenal glands last week and how they relate to stress and how to treat them right. Gluten was mentioned as a big factor – the teacher said many of us would benefit by going gluten free. Hmmmm.
    Mom went to bed early so I will take this opportunity to…go to bed early. Yawn.

    10:35 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Rebecca!…Are you stocking the shelves of the store tonight?…snort!…Or will you be pulling an all-nighter on Friday night like last time…chuffle!

    Tulo!…grump!…Tulo cannot hit against this pitcher…grumble!….He never has been able to get past this guy…sniff!….ToddFather is up to get the tying run in….yeeep!yeeep!

    They only lost by one run. This is an improvement.

    Night All

    Rio: I am going to start stocking the shelves tonight and tryin to work on it each night before the big sale. Barring technical disasters like last time, I should be able to sleep this go around.

    We think that tomorrow will be Beginnings 3, Thursday will be Beginnings 4 and FRIDAY will be Beginnings 5 from the new book!!

    We also think that Natasha is trying to save her pride…Home Office? Really? She just realized that being tied down to a play dog who loves baseball may be more than she bargained for.

    Can’t wait for the Snowhook sale!


  115. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:28 pm on May 22nd, 2012

    Puss N’ Boots!…Are you ready to shop!shop!shop!….snort!…The shelves are being stocked and soon the door will open!…grunt!…Hey, Rebecca, what time on Saturday will the Spring Boutique be opening? It has to be a “fair” time so everyone is awake and has had at least one cuppa cawfee…sniff!

    Rio: I was thinking of mirroring the MMHB for the MMSB. I believe we flipped the closed sign to the open sign at 8 am my time which is 10 am your time and noon for our friends on the east coast.

    Today was the first day of driving my new-to-me car into work (I worked from home yesterday). It doesn’t even come close to the Wookiemobile—my car, Belle Starr is is demanding I name it after her—requires me to stop at the gas station, will probably, eventually have a flat tire, will need the oil change, and is missing a pug sitting shot gun licking his paws from a recent dip in a bucket of hot wings. Once I accepted it wasn’t the Wookiemobile and that I need to get accustomed to having a smaller gas tank, I give it a thumbs up.

    Yaaaawwwwwnnnn – this is just getting ridiculous. She works in the Mud Room from sun up to sundown, to moonrise, to dawn. And she has two more days to finish everything. Panic is indeed setting in. Plus we miss all the happenings on the blog.

    Its not (completely) her fault that she is so far behind this time. She depends on two other people to do the firing of her mud stuff – and both of them blew their deadlines. So, she only has half her stuff from one place and won’t know about the other place untii tomorrow. But even if she gets her pieces tomorrow, she still has lots of work to do on them to make them finished.

    You all are lucky to live so far away right now – she is just a wreck! Even Melanie is staying far away, high on her hill until this show is over.

    But she wanted to make sure to say she is sending pawsitive thoughts to Macy’s Mom, and sympathy to Rio and Siber for the Rockies, and good luck to everyone on the Spring Boutique.

    Thats all for now – good night everyone!

    Herb Kats: Good luck to your mom on her show this weekend and fingers crossed that she’ll get her pieces in time to make them even more fabulous. Is this the part where we tell your mom that the Royals volunteered to be put in a box, they even supplied the packing tape, and asked you to ship them to Alaska?

  119. Basil and Sage
    12:04 am on May 23rd, 2012

    oops – p.s. – Mama wants us to say that she will be contributing to the Boutique – once she gets thru this weekend

  120. Basil and Sage
    12:05 am on May 23rd, 2012

    Bella – at this point we are ready to put HER in a box and ship her to Alaska – maybe then she would “chill”.

    Stinky Mama on Ice—don’t forget to poke holes in the box so she can breathe.

    Stinky Mama: The show comes first, the MMSB second.

    Rio, maybe I am thinking of the Dream Project….that had roses, or maybe I just have eyes in the back of my head. Nevertheless, I would buy any of your friend’s projects sight unseen….she is a master quilled!
