Bob Dylan

Yesterday on Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour the show was all about tobacco. Was Bernie fascinated or what? Every song was about smoking – like Tobacco Road, by J. D. Loudermilk, for example, or Nicotine, by Paul Chaplain and His Emeralds. Bernie searched under the seat lots of times for some forgotten cigarette but there weren’t any, not even one lousy crushed little butt. That was what he said: “Why can’t there be one lousy crushed little butt, Chet?” The reason was because he’d found the very last one on our escape from Mexico, and if not an escape then rolling in a big hurry with gunshots in the background.

But back to yesterday and Bob Dylan. We were in the Porsche at the time, on a stake-out. This was for the Colonel Bob’s son’s case, but more of that some other time. The point is Bernie was so fascinated that he didn’t see when the dude we were tailing came out of the bar. I had to bark my low rumbly bark. Then we were back in business. We’re partners, me and Bernie.

    I have to look so much up to just comment here! Whew! Barb and Maggie asked about the mastiff being part of the Newf ancestry. Yes! Mastiff, Lab, Chow and others combined to create the Newf. Sort of like Chet's ancestry created a great dog!

    I had to look up the UKC. We're part of the AKC here, but seems like the UKC is doing more confirmation shows. Up here in the Northeast, the AKC rules for confirmation of Newfs. Since breeders are looking for CH in front of their dogs names, the UKC shows don't go towards the AKC. I think. We don't show ours anymore. Getting up at 4:30 am washing dogs and then grooming and then traveling to a show, and then grooming, can be very tiring. Dan is 80 and Zoë is 77 and I'm cough cough, sorry something in my throat there. We have pups but don't show.

    Thanks Rebecca, we think they are cool looking too. Last time we were there was for a show in Wisconsin. Stopped at our old stomping ground. I grew up some in suburbs of Chicago.

    Back to the Post! Oldest son (artist) understands Bernie's search. It's not easy giving up smoking. He is now 1 year smoke free. He had a crushed out cigarette tattooed on his wrist to remind him not to smoke.

    Hmm. There's a thought Chet. Maybe Bernie should get a tattoo!

    Where would Bernie be without you, Chet? Love your low, rumbly bark. You are too sexy for your fur…I'm just saying.

    Grunt!… I just heard that someone crashed a plane into an IRS building!…Snort!… his final words were something like “take my pound of flesh and sleep well”…. Bummer!

    Chet, you are so good! And I like the idea of the tattoo. I wonder if it would have the opposite effect on Bernie.

    Today's post is sooo Chet. We love it. Not much time today but just wanted you to know that I read all of yesterday's posts and am still laughing. Molly, you can call me adorable anytime. One of my best friends is named Molly, but I am sure you are much nicer than she is. She is so ornery.

    Ready for the olympics tonight Rio? They are a lot of fun this time around, but we could add such class to the games if we were there. The snow, the snow, the ice, the speed–Paradise!

    Hmmmmphf!… apparently we are so desperate to watch ANYTHING Olympic related…Snort!… that we were just watching “Curling”…Snort!…does anyone know the rules to “Curling”…Grunt!.. I didn’t have a clue what was going on …Snort!… all that mopping and mopping…wheeze!…What the does this have to do with Life threatening Danger and Speed!?

    I don't understand curling either-I just don't get it. The mopping is pretty frantic and serious. We may be missing out on a fun sport by not knowing what is going on. I don't get that short track relay thing either. I can't follow it It looks like anarchy to me-like the dog park, which I do understand.

    Speaking of the dog park, I don't know how much longer mom can go on staying up late to watch the Olympics and then getting up at 5:15 am to drive me to the dog park so I'll get there before sunrise. Something might have to give and it is not going to be the dog park and the time I like to arrive there. Poor mom. (The "poor mom" comment is just in case she reads this)

    Dude!… I guess this means you won’t be around here much during the Late Night Olympics!…Grunt!… Have fun causing Anarchy in the Park!… mmmm…
