Beyond Comprehension

Bernie has a hard look on his face today. He tosses the paper aside. “Just because something can be done does that mean it has to be done? Now there’s an Android app – meaning a product for Google – that lets you train and fight virtual pit bulls. What kind of mind thinks that up? Who would want to buy it? In what possible way can you call it a game?”

No idea. I go over to Bernie. He gives me a nice pat. Bernie’s a good patter, although not in the class of Autumn, for example, over at Livia Moon’s house of ill repute. A friend of Autumn’s is in The Dog Who Knew Too Much, maybe the reason the whole case got started. But way too complicated to remember now.

Happy Birthday Ben! And many many more.

    Chet: You keep teasing us with tidbits from Dog Who. Blast! However, I give you a good pat as well. As far as apps go….beyond me. Happy birthday Ben!

    Good morning all.

    Good morning, Bee! Dog Who tidbits, yet no Astrid! Can it be that Chet’s dog brain has forgotton all about Astrid? I know I tend to forget things — a lot! But for some reason, Astrid is sticking with me. Maybe I’ll forget about her once there’s some conclusion to the story!

    As for a conclusion about the virtual dog fighting — my conclusion is that some people are just idiots!

    Hopefully the people who monitor such things will shut it down. Quickly.

    Good morning, everyone. Mom goes back to work today. I am bummed, because I have enjoyed watching daytime tv with mom. She says it stinks, but I have enjoyed all the naps and smuggles.

    Nattie, when do we leave for the mystery you know what?

    Rio – this might make you laugh. While we were driving to Easter dinner, we saw a pug making a great escape along a country road. He’d trot ahead of his person, who was obviously trying to catch him, let his person get about two feet from him, then skip away. Would you have been that disobedient?

    New computer on the horizon. The current hard drive is ticking, literally.

    The Android people have to accept any app? Freedom of Speech? Patoohey.

    Hope Everybody has a good week.

    Mondays aren’t so bad! At least not this Monday! Unlike Catty Librarian’s city, Easter is a holiday here, and so is Easter Monday! So Mom has the day off — although Dad has to work. (But Mom says she doesn’t feel too bad about that, because Dad gets the whole summer off!)

    And no rain — or snow — here! The birds are singing, people are out mowing their lawns. And Mom and Dad went to the store and bought some annuals yesterday to dress up the perennials that are coming up — spring has definitely sprung here! In fact, I think we’ve already missed spring and gone directly to summer — today’s high is 89 degrees!

    Why would anyone want to fight dogs, even virtually? There are some sickos out there. Does that game playing encourage the real thing?

    Melanie, Barb’s comments about your sister’s chickens finally came through last night. When we have new born chicks, they all look the same. It takes at least a month for the combs and tail feathers to grow enough to tell if the chicks are little roosters. Tell us more about what she is getting.

    We think mama goat is in early stages of labor right now. Barb was supposed to work from 8:30 till 10:30 today, but she went in for 45 minutes and came back home. Crazy lady can survive without her this morning. Babies are more important!

  10. Kirby T. Penworthy
    11:26 am on April 25th, 2011

    Is Barb’s Crazy Lady the one who just became a grandmother? Or was that T&G’s Crazy Lady? Because Grandma Crazy Lady ought to recognize the importance of babies — of any species!

  11. B.Stover

    Barb: According to Aristotle, watching a play (movie, tv or, perhaps, playing video games?) is cathartic. One can only hope.

  12. Kirby T. Penworthy
    11:44 am on April 25th, 2011

    Bee: Yes, but hasn’t more than one defense attorney claimed his/her client did some horrific crime because he/she watched so many violent episodes on TV and/or played violent video games? “It wasn’t my client’s fault, Your Honor! The video games made him do it!!!”

  13. Siber-H
    11:48 am on April 25th, 2011

    Sometimes if there is enough of an outcry from the public things like this dog fighting app can be removed. I think an app like this does encourage this cruel behavior and the really bad news; It will sell. I can safely say this because I live in a part of the country where illegal pit bull fighting is probably more common than in other parts of the country. Our shelters and rescues are full of pit bulls and pit bull mixes. Mpm has seen pit bull rescues adopt out dogs that are friendly towards people but very dog aggressive. It takes people that really know what they are doing, like Best Friends in Utah, to fix this dog aggression problem.

  14. Siber-H
    11:50 am on April 25th, 2011

    Happy Birthday Ben!!!

    Isn’t Melanie suppose to be putting up a video of chickens for me and the Howlers?

  15. Tupper and Gilly
    11:55 am on April 25th, 2011

    Barb – keeping paws crossed for easy delivery of happy healthy babies that their mama goat accepts!
    Kirby – its our Crazy Lady who just became a grandma – and her biggest concern is that she doesn’t want to be called “Grandma” – she wants a “cool” ungrandmotherly type of name. She is 65, but doesn’t want people to know she is “old enough” to be a grandmother. See, told ya – CRAZY!
    Bee – we have to disagree with the cathartic theory. We know that violent video games are used in training combat ready troops. Supposedly, by perfecting their aiming skills in video games, they will have been control of their weapons in the battlefield. However, most psycologists feel that the games do little more than desensitize the soldiers, so that they don’t think of their targets as living, breathing humans with families and birthdays and feelings. The same has been proven time and again with teenagers who play violent video games for long periods of time – they lose track of the barrier between virtual and real worlds.
    There will always be people out there who think that game violence is acceptable. We hope that a gang of pitbulls attack their house and eat their game console and tv and couch! So there!

  16. B.Stover
    11:59 am on April 25th, 2011

    Kirby: It would be interesting to know how often that defense works.

    B&M: How is Stormy doing?

    G&BB: That is a beautiful jacket.

  17. Kirby T. Penworthy
    12:03 pm on April 25th, 2011

    T&G: Mom calls her grandmother “Mimi.” Maybe if Crazy Lady uses that one, people won’t realize she’s a Grandma, they’ll just think she’s French! NOT!

  18. Macy the Min-Pin
    12:05 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Good morning all!

    Melanie, if I find a picture of a hat, can you help me put it on?

    One of these things is not like the others…..

  19. Macy the Min-Pin
    12:06 pm on April 25th, 2011

    BTW, this mama was rescued 2 days before delivering 10 pups on her new persons bed! At least she was comfy.

  20. Macy the Min-Pin
    12:08 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Holly and Biddie call my mom Mimi. Or a least she thinks they do. I am not going to tell her what they REALLY call her.

  21. Kirby T. Penworthy
    12:12 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Macy: How the heck did that happen? You’ve gotta tell us the rest of the story behind that photo!

  22. B.Stover
    12:20 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Macy: That is a beautiful dog. There seems to be a baby goat present also.

    T&G: I think you could find just as many psychologists who would claim that gaming has no effect or has a cathartic effect. All this means, of course, is that no one knows the answers to Bernie’s questions. I only know that the human being is the most dangerous animal on the planet.

    Rio: I think you were standing in the corner as the only means of protection from a rambunctious Pepper. Your tail almost wagged and those soulful black eyes…..I hope you got a slim jim in the end.

  23. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:29 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Puss N’ Boots!…. I sent the photo of your Western Jacket to my friend…snort!…She Loves it and thinks you should put it up for auction if you truly want to get rid of it….wuffle!

  24. Siber-H
    12:50 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Gus&BooBear, I think the jacket is beautiful!! It should be a fine auction item.

    Rio, I’m going to watch your video as soon as I get my own computer back.

    That is a beautiful light Golden in Macy’s photo…no comment on the goat. It could grow up to be one of THOSE goats.

  25. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:58 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Treats!… On that particular day I got one more chicken jerky treat than ole Pepper did…heh!…She went outside and I squeezed another treat out of my friends friend. …snort!…After that someone put the kibosh on any more treats….grump!

  26. Tupper and Gilly
    12:58 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Gus and BooBear – that jacket is gorgeous! If there was any way that Mama could squeeeeeeeze into a size 10, she would bid on that in a minute. We told her she could get it and cut it down for Gilly and me to sahre, but she was not in the least bit amused. Sheesh.

  27. Macy the Min-Pin
    1:04 pm on April 25th, 2011

    FYI, it is a lamb, maybe they don’t maraud. The lamb was born about a week after the pups and mom rejected it. They took the lamb in to see what would happen and momdog seemed to say, “I already have 10, what’s one more!” Then maybe she will grow up to baaaaark.

  28. Barb & Maggie
    1:08 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Back in from the barn. At least Barb is, she wouldn’t let me go yet. Stormy had the first baby, mostly white at 11:15, and second, mostly brown at 11:45. She is talking to both of them and cleaning them off, so hopefully she will let them both eat. They are really cute, with big floppy ears. Not sure, but think the white one is a girl.

    Rio, tell your friend she did a nice job on the video, and the music was good too.

  29. Gus and BooBear
    1:10 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Thanks, guys! It really is a pretty jacket, but Mom will never wear it (could NOT wear it, if truth be told). It will definitly go in the auction. We may need help on our description. We’ll get the basic done and then get some opinions from y’all on making it more spiffy. Maybe it will make Snowhook a little money anyway. Those jackets look so good with jeans—on the younger generation!

  30. Kirby T. Penworthy
    1:11 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Congratulations, Barb! Any names yet? Do the Easter ones count if they were born the day after???

  31. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:31 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Goats!…I’ve heard that Marauding Goats are specially trained on the Marauding Goat farms. Their locations are unknown….grunt!

  32. Melanie
    1:44 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Happy Birthday Ben!

    Happy Birth Day, new goats!

    Riö, YSAS dedicated the Double Fried Tofu video to you, but it hasn’t shown up yet. Not sure what happened.

    Going over later to see my sister’s chicken coop and 3 pullets. Will post a pic, not a video, maybe Barb can tell what they are from a picture!

  33. Macy the Min-Pin
    1:45 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Spring is a good name and descriptive too.

  34. Melanie
    1:46 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Oh, to continue because I have no brain. . .

    Gus & BooBear that is a beautiful jacket.

    Riö, your video was wonderful. Such patience though inside I’m sure you were swearing.

    Macy: It’s the white pup that’s not like the others, right? snicker

  35. Macy the Min-Pin
    1:46 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Or you could name them after our weather Thunder and Lightning.

    G&BB: love the jacket, wish I was a size 10

  38. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    1:56 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Rio — Finally saw the video, which for some reason would not play very well on the IPaw but worked just fine on the real computer. I can really sympathize with you because my friend Ziggy (who used to live next door but moved about a year ago — he came after Casey, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge two years ago) stopped by yesterday with his folks and he spent the entire time taking all my toys out of my toy basket and spreading them all over the house. I just let him do it because he is a lot smaller than me and a lot younger too, but it was kind of annoying. I didn’t even get any extra treats (although I had some really terrific hanger steak for dinner, which more than made up for it).

    Regarding the Android App, maybe we could sic Supreme Court Justice Alito on the developers; he’s the only one of those guys (and gals too, since there are now three of them on the Supreme Court) who has any sense about how bad animal cruelty can be anyway. Wookie

  40. B.Stover
    2:15 pm on April 25th, 2011

    I like Macy’s idea of names: Thunder (the brown) and Lightning (the white) out of Stormy.

  41. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    2:23 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Melanie — YSAS’s Double Fried Video is now on YouTube; I found it easily and just watched it; it is terrific. Actually, watched all three of his videos. I had some buffering problems, but discovered if I slowed the speed to 240p from 360p (not sure what they really means) it helped a lot. And the dedication to Rio is just grand. Wookie
    P.S. I think this is the link:

    It’s Easter Monday. A holiday here. I’m all packed and leaving for the airport soon.

    Gus and Boo Bear: I want that jacket! If I hadn’t been to all Tupper and Gilly’s dinner parties it would fit. (as if)

    Rio: What the …? That video not only shows how really good looking you are, it also shows how extremely patient you can be.

  43. Mollypop
    2:59 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Hi Everybody! I’m back from Sam’s. I see there’s so much to catch up on so I’ll be back later.

    Melanie – YSAS’s video is excellent. Will this be for an audition?

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:03 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Sound!…Of course I am a perfectly patient guy all the time…heh!… If she had left the real sound in, you might have another opinion. All my begging while I was in the corner when the camera was not on me has been covered up by music… snort!… The screaming and carrying on while I was behind Pepper has been removed as well. …sniff!…So, yes, it seems as if I am the perfect gentleman….heh!snort! …Behold the power of Editing.

    3:11 pm on April 25th, 2011

    We are ack home once again. Good Day to All.

    Virtual games of pit bull fighting makes our stomachs turn and heads are shaking in disgust. Shades of Michael Vick for sure. Grrrr!

    Our very own Top Chief! Melanie, I think the videos shuold be inclued in the auction. Wookie: Thank you for the link & very happy to hear of Grandpa’s excellent progress.

    G&BooBear: The jacket is beautiful! Definitely auction material.

    Rio: You are a very handsome dog in that video! Even better looking than your photos. It is interesting to see daily progress on your Friend’s project. What can it be?

    Mom found a family recipe for spirits we can send in for the Cookbook.

    Hey, Barb&Maggie, baby goaties! Can’t wait to hear the names.

  48. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:41 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Clarkson!….I have a big favor to ask of you. Will you do a reading from The Usual Suspects and video it?? ….snort!…. The part I am thinking of is where Verbal Kint is telling the story of Keyer Soze. I think you could play the part of Verbal very well. Probably just as good as Kevin Spacey did….heh!

  50. Barb & Maggie
    3:56 pm on April 25th, 2011

    Looks like one boy (the dark one) and one girl. Debating between Easter and Bunny and Thunder and Lightning. Kim is supposed to take the babies back later in the summer, in exchange for them living over there for 5 months, so will have to run the names by her. Mama seems to be doing fine, and both babies have eaten.

    Sshhh! Don’t tell anyone but Kim runs a Special Ops training camp for marauding goats. She has a secluded 30 acres in the hilly country, so she stays easily hidden.

    We are in cahoots with Kim. Might as well fess up after Natasha spilled the beans about Barb being the undercover assassin.

  51. Siber-H
    3:59 pm on April 25th, 2011

    ok, that seems to have worked. I have my own computer back and the computer guy got my internet server to return my emails and address book. My internet server is totally changing the way they do things, and this low-tech Husky is not happy with them. I will plunder on.

    4:01 pm on April 25th, 2011

    On a lighter note, Happy Birthday, Ben!

    Did anyone watch Girls Night Out last Friday? We caught part of it. We like Country music, but not totally in love with it, but Carrie Underwood’s “How Great Thou Art” was the most beautiful we have ever heard. Even if you are not religious, it brought tears to your eyes.

  53. Siber-H
    4:08 pm on April 25th, 2011

    The Boston Red Sox are celebrating the 100th year anniversary of their stadium this year. Will the Yankees ever be able to do that. NO
    I’ll try watching the videos now.
    Thanks for letting some of us dogs know where the training camp for the marauding goats is located. All we needed was a general location. We can smell them 25 miles away.

    We have our stuff for the auction…are there rules for what we are to do yet?

  58. BearSpiritDog

    Hey Rio! We don’t wear shorts!
    Our mom doesn’t let us on the computer too often (something about pig ears…) so we were afraid we missed something.
    She’s kicking us off now in fact!

    Rio & Melanie – I finally got to the videos. Wonderful, all of them. Rio, you are sooooo cute, waiting, waiting…there might have been a moment of yeeping.

    I agree with your Usual Suspects request of Clarkson and that very intriguing scene.

    G&BB – gorgeous jacket. Perfect auction item.

    Barb – congrats to the baby goats and mama, and you!

    Mom’s proud of herself; she figured out how to use a flash drive in case the computer crashes before the week’s out.

We here really see him in that part…heh!…I hope he agrees to do it for us…snuffle!…That would be awesome! …grunt!…My friend bought all the stuff to back up our old clunky computer, but she hasn’t taken it out of the packaging yet….grumble!…What the Hell?

    Thanks for all your nice comments on YSAS practice video. He is good in the kitchen. Both guys are good. Dan is the one who taught them to cook.

    Riö, I’ll let YSAS know about that “Verbal Kint” (I’ve never seen that movie), he’s out of here tomorrow and coming back on Wednesday. It’s his SO’s birthday so he’s zooming up to Boston and back the next day.

    Reminiscing about my baby goats. They were really cute.

    Katy is all a flutter about going to the “vedding”. Gracie is teasing her mercilessly.

    I’m off to bed! TTFN

    Hi everyone – the double shifts continue for now. sigh.
    Rio – your video was wonderful – that’s the side of Rio we love – sweet, with begging little eyes and wiggling, curly tail. You are so much better looking in action than some of your still pics. Will you get grumpy if we call you adorable?
    Barb and Maggie – CONGRATULATIONS! Glad Stormy is acceptng both baby goaties. We love the Thunder and Lightening out of Stormy. (whispering) That Macy is so clever
    Love the tofu video. We want some right now!!! (Except that we have cilantro – is there another herb we can use?)

    B.Stover: I made the mistake of going on your blog and spending the last 45 minutes catching up and writing an answer. Then it totally disappeared. Gone. Zip.
