    Yes, we think interesting too.

    Notice that Chet always say his tail is held high when he is alert and on duty.

    Good morning all. Barb says it is walkie time. Yea!

    Just read the posts from last night. Thanks, Staff, for giving us the def. of TOGA. I just knew the A had to stand for something. Would have never thought of Academy, but I like it. Nice ring to it.

    Good morning, B and B&M and everyone! loved the article and doesn’t it say a lot about how smart OFA is about the nation within. Read last night’s posts but had issues when mom uploaded Mac 8.0 OS :( Seems to be better now, except no tv installed yet.
    Have a miraculous Monday.

    Hi everyone. Guess what me and my gal Zeta get to do on Wednesday. We get to go to a Nationals game. They have something called Pups in the Park, where two-leggeds can bring their members of the nation within with them to the baseball game. How cool is that! Zeta has gone once before and really liked it a lot but this will be my first time. We are playing the Mets, but Ms. Wose said it was still okay for me to root for the Nationals.

    Also, pictured below is me and mini-me. He is a real cute guy and as he grows bigger, I am sure we will have lots of fun.

    Teddy!…Now I am really jealous of you going to a baseball game…grunt!…Can you bring me back a hot-dawg?

  8. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:59 am on September 22nd, 2014

    News!…I received some disturbing news out of China…yeeep!….Nanasan is still there. She was bumped from two flights…gasp!…Dawg knows when she will be back in the US of A…gulp!

    I read that article in Parade yesterday. I am not a head cocker.

    I DO NOT like this news about Nanasan but thankfully she was able to get the news to Rio. She will never get out of China…gasp. We may need the Navy Seals for this mission.

    Teddy, please try to take pictures for us of you and Zeta at the baseball game. I hope I am cheering for the Nationals in the World Series.
    It is nice you and Rascal live close together. Mom says you can help tire each other out.

  10. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:58 am on September 22nd, 2014

    Nats!…The Nationals are my choice for the World Series….snort!snort!…Does anyone remember Spencer’s pick way back in April or was it May? …grunt!

  11. Siber-H
    12:11 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    I don’t remember Spencer’s pick, but he did it at the beginning of the season.

    I have no idea how I remember this, but last year at this time it was Wolfie who remembered and posted Spencer’s picks for the series.

  12. dawson
    12:13 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Rio: I remember Wookie’s and Teddy’s Dad’s prediction: The Nationals against the Orioles is looking quite possible.

    Spence had a prediction for his head and his heart. His heart predicted the Boston Red Sox versus the Dodgers and his head predicted the Rays versus the Cards.

    Yikes! I don’t like the news out of China.

    Teddy: Looking good with the mini-you. Have fun at the ball game.

    Hello All–
    Still laughing at yesterday’s posts–especially the deli-themed one from Tupper’s Mama. also enjoyed Rio’s story about Beau and the purse lady.
    I hope you all had a wonderful Equinox yesterday and I wish you a great week. (I’m heading out to work, so…)

  14. Diane C.
    12:21 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Oh no! I just read about Nana! Praying and sending positive thoughts (with w’s inserted).
    Lovely to have Wose back.
    Now I’m really gone.

  15. Siber-H
    12:21 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Thanks Dawson (whispering) The Boston Red Sox have lost more games than the Rockies.

  16. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:28 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    SiberH!….snicker!…snort!

  17. dawson
    12:28 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    SiberH: I had written down those predictions on a scrap of paper which I came across a couple days ago while cleaning the desk off.

    Greetings!

    Interesting article.

    Oh, Teddy, look at you and your mini-me! I am sure you will be a great big brother to Rascal. I hope I can watch your game on the Mets station. I will be looking for you, and you gal, Zeta!

    I am very worrit about Nanasan.

    12:45 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    RIO! Skip over to your SDD when you are able. wheeze!

    Is casino-visiting allowed?

  21. Super Sleuth Kat
    1:35 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Carpola! Awaiting moderation!
    How about…Is MGM Grand-visiting allowed?

  22. Super Sleuth Kat
    1:37 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Carpola! My comment is in moderation, but here is a photo I managed to sneak while on surveillance.

  23. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:20 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Message!…Recieved from Nanasan!…snort!

    “Carpola! Today will be my 3rd attempt to get a flight out. All Paws tails and eyes crossed for me PLEASE! YEEP! (On the kool side I’m meeting all kinds of interesting people) ^..^”

  24. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:23 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Stand-by!….Who here thinks flying to China on Standby is a good idea?….grunt!

  25. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:31 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Flight!…Nanasan is waiting for this next flight…grunt!…It will take off at 10:25pm EDT with or without Nanasan…groan!

  26. Siber-H
    2:34 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Rio, Will we know if Nanasan gets on the flight?
    I am nervous…all paws crossed for Nanasan.

  27. Wose-the Small and Meek
    2:34 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Standby to China!!!!! I want Nanasan at her home, where she belongs!

  28. Wose-the Small and Meek
    2:36 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Perhaps Beau can send up some prayers to make sure our Nanasan has a safe return.

  29. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:43 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Nanasan!…She says “I have been staying at the Regal Airport Hotel which is connected to the airport. A 5 minute walk to check – in. There is a Starbucks and McDonald’s close by. Thank Dog!”…snort!

  30. Siber-H
    2:46 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Whew, That is a relief. I was afraid she might be “living” in
    the airport.

  31. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:48 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    SiberH!…I thought she was too!..heh!

    3:06 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    That was our biggest fear.

  33. Kat
    3:51 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    For what it’s worth, Hong Kong is not really part of China.

  34. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:06 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Kat!…What is it part of?..snort!

  35. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:07 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Stover!…Guess what we are reading?…sniff!…That’s right! “We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves” – so far it is very very funny…snort!

  36. Herd of Hounds' mom
    4:13 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    T&G, when do think your people will be home?

  37. Tupper and Gilly
    4:45 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    THEY CAME HOME! Mama and the Storyteller came home to us, us, us! Mama says she will be back on the blog later- after we let her up from the floor where we are wiggling and telling her all about how terrible Gramp treated us.

    She says she also needs time for dinner. Seems they brought home a whole cooler full of lobsters to share with Gramp.

  38. B.Stover
    6:34 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Rio: I haven’t gotten to Completely Beside Ourselves yet. Let me know how you like it.

  39. Tupper's Mama
    6:43 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    So, we are home, now we just have to wait and see how long it is going to take Nana to get back tot he USA….

    Meanwhile, to entertain you while we wait, here is a funny video. (Siber, you may want to skip this one)

    (Darah) I looked and looked for that poor crying dog. Couldn’t find her in the kitchen anywhere but I kept hearing her.

  41. Thieves!
    7:54 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    About body language, if either of us is snuggling you it means the other just procured something from your pocket.

    Wose! Mama Luna says she has you by the scruff.

    Rio: We don’t need to search because we know were Nanasan is, but we can deploy for a rescue mission. Say the word. We just procured a Rosetta Bone to help us with any language difference we may or may not encounter.

  42. c.hobbit
    8:08 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Mama Luna: yesterday, your Lady called Harris a hellion. In the lexicon of behaving is that more than a scamp and less than a miscreant?

  43. Wose-the Small and Meek
    8:14 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Thieves! Please tell Mama Luna thank you. Keeping me by the scruff is a full-time job.

    Hmmmm…..I haven’t seen any sparkles in a while……

  44. Kat
    8:17 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Rio, it is a country of its own.
    I still want my Nana home.
    We just got back from our walk. Tonight, we walked 4.57 miles! (We track it on Nexercise.) Cool!

  45. Herd of Hounds
    8:26 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Wose, we are unsure how well sparkles would go over in a deli! Maybe on the desserts?

  46. Thieves!
    8:37 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    CHobbit: It’s a sliding scale. We have been called hellions on many occasions, but the love dial is set. That doesn’t change. We can report that Harris, the hellion, not you—maybe you have and we just don’t know it, yet—has been caught red pawed with our Lady’s gloves in her mouth, she stole some cash from AJ, and has done her best to abscond with anything within reach. She does a Thief’s heart proud.

  47. Herd of Hounds
    8:51 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    (Blondie) Hey, Thieves, I have made off with 2 rugs, a 2 liter bottle, mom’s throw, mom’s left Birkenstock and an entire trash bag! We might be twins!

  48. Diane C.
    8:55 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Blondie–Well done, although your Mom may not enjoy this as much as you do. Welcome to Hilla the reindeer herder from Finland.
    Everyone is sounding pretty tip-top at this point, which is a blessing. Waiting anxiously for news that Nana is airborne.

    Thieves: A Rosetta Bone. Heh, snort, heh as a certain pug would say!

  50. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:06 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Harris!…If you are going to thieve, cash is a really good thing to go after…snort!….Who’s a good girl?…wuffle!

  51. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:07 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Thieves!…heh!heh!snort!…cough!…I almost laughed out loud over the Rosetta Bone…chorkel!

  52. Tupper and Gilly
    9:09 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    We can report that a certain Wrotten Kat was seen absconding with an overlooked lobster leg. Does that make him a hellion?
    (We have always thought of him in those terms anyway)

  53. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:25 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Kat!…I know someone here who would love to walk with your Maw on her 4.57 mile walks…snort!..I would love that too, because then we guys could just stay home and lay in front of the door…heh!heh!

  54. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:34 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    SiberH!…Beau did NOT stare at anyone tonight…heh!heh!…I think the ole’ big-ass purse on the head taught him a fine lesson…chorkel!

    Plus!…Here we go with late late west coast games…grumble!…This is so unfair for the last week of baseball…sob!

  55. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:44 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Stover!…The book in question really took my friend’s mind off of the fact that she was on an aeroplane during the flights to Alaska for many hours….snort!…It is very well written (of course) and seriously funny. But I do NOT believe this is a light-hearted story. It is told with humor masking a lot of pain…sniffle!

  56. Siber-H
    9:46 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Rio, Maybe the purse did teach him a lesson. I’m like you. I do not want people fawning over me.

    Where did the baseball season go? It does not seem possible that this is the last week…SOB

    It is less than hour now before Nanasan’s plane takes off. We hope this will be Nanasan’s plane.

  57. Herd of Hounds
    9:50 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Since mom goes to the library on Tuesday, she is forcing us to bed early, not that 3/4 of us aren’t snoring right now. Will catch up on the evening antics in the a.m.
    Glad the Mass. group is together and safe. Hope Nanasan gets home on the next flight. NIghty nachos.

  58. dawson
    9:52 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Super Sleuth Kat: Your super sleuth friend is doing a great job infiltrating while blending in with the locals. I love the picture of her with the Horse. I am not worrit. She is in control. I do hope she gets on a plane for home tonight, though.

  59. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:01 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Flight!…If Nanasan got on the flight, she is sitting on the plane now…snort!…I did not receive any messages after the ones I relayed to youse all..grunt!…I was hoping she would say Yay or Nay…sniff!

  60. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:02 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Rascal!…I just love looking at that photo of Teddy and lil’ Rascal…heh!heh!…Teddy reminds me so much of my best pal Wookie right now – in his prime of course…chuffle!

  61. Barb & Maggie
    10:11 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    We too, like HOH, are heading off to bed. Early day tomorrow. Hope Nana makes that flight.

  62. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:46 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Game!…We are watching the game but it won’t be long and I will be in my warm soft bed….snort!…San Diego – I believe Chet has been there on vacation surfing no less!…heh!heh!

  63. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:50 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Flight!…Well the flight Nanasan may or may not be on is en route…grunt!…I am very mad at her for not being more in communication during this whole thing…grump!…But I also know she has a flaky phone service deal. So that might be the problem…wheeze!

  64. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:11 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Low-Hope!…Because I did not hear from her I sort of feel like she did not make the flight…sniff!…But that is just a feeling and it could be totally wrong…whuffle!…On the other paw, we may never see Nanasan again…sob!sob!sob!

  65. Siber-H
    11:12 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    We are turning in. While we sleep I hope Nana is on that plane and the Rockies win this game.

    Despair!…Do not despair SiberH!…wuffle!…Nanasan is very resilient…snort!…Remember, we here have met her and vacationed with her in Alaska…chuffle!…She is one tough lady, let me tell youse!…snort!…Her and my friend hugged many times. Nanasan is one of our very best ever friends and she will never be off our radar…heh!heh!…Nanasan, Come HOME!..wheeze!…Come HOME Nanasan!

  68. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:39 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    Sniff!…I was trying to be funny at a stressful time and SiberH took it seriously…snuffle!…Sorry SiberH. I am sure Nanasan will be home soon or at least withing the coming week…guffle!

  69. Thieves!
    11:53 pm on September 22nd, 2014

    What? A Plunderer worry? We here are convinced Nanasan is a lot like our Annabelle—a tough bird, resilient, well traveled and always on the look out for a good snack!

    Good night plunderers. I am glad Rose is back on the blog although work is interfering with her communication. grump. However she sounds more up and that is great!

    Nana we miss you.

    I am back home. Tupper and Gilly have their Mom and Pop back. There are a lot of coming backs today so I have faith that Nana will make it too.
