The thick-necked biker’s face was real red now and his nostrils had opened up a surprising amount, reminding me of a bull I came across once in a corral I’d regretted entering almost immediately.

– from Paw and Order (coming Aug. 5)

Welcome Sarah – and here she is:

I\'m Sarah, and I\'m nearly Chet-sized!

    Whoa–I’m first today?

    Storyteller, I hope you’re on your way home. (And Tupper’s Mom, stay focused and find some time for yourself in between battles.)

    Macy–How are you doing? (And Macy’s Mom, don’t forget to take care of yourself.)

    Everyone–Be well this Thursday.

    Good morning, everyone! Bull! Love it…the first Newfie in our herd had that thought too, when she realized they weren’t 3″ tall (like out a window looks). A.J., thanks for the post of King’s video 🙁
    Sadie Bear…better late than never: Have a thousand treaties Thursday!

    DianeC, good to hear from you but saddened by your loss. Your other family is here when you need. Macy and her Mom, hope today brings better and better. Golinka and the Storyteller, may today resolve the Club Med stay and set you on course for healthier days.

    Dawson, OH’s mom, Macy’s mom, CHobbit, Y’all will get a kick out of this…
    From our house to the Hospital/surgeon/oncologist’s there are 5 routes. DDD always takes the one that has a 350 yard tunnel 🙁 Then wonders why mom’s BP is elevated. Go figure! (Gotta love Whittier) I”d be glad to fly or boat to there!
    Breaking news! DDD just told mom,” No Tunnel this A.M. Got it.”

    Another taste of Paw & Order…always appreciated.
    and it’s Thursday…Spence’s favorite day (will he ever tell us why?)

    AJ: Thanks for stopping by and posting the latest kennel news and the link to Jeff King’s Wild Ride.

    Paw crossed for a good day for everyone with:
    The Storyteller back home & feeling tip top,
    Little Macy continuing to improve
    and SnowBella home, home, home.

    Good Morning All.
    Bear Hugs for everyone who needs comfort.

    I’m laughing over the excerpt. Chet, you have to stay away from bulls as well a donkeys.

    AJ: Thank you for the video. “Technical”–yark!

    Good morning all.

    Good morning all.
    Macy’s Mom – hope our favorite, sassy little MinPin is doing better today.
    Diane – prayers for you and your family
    Dawson – prayers for you and the dreaded 8.
    Off to the hospital soon to see if we can spring a Storyteller.

    Sounds like Macy and the Storyteller are both trending in a good direction, with a little assistance from a baby blanket and a bulldozer. Great news.

    Beautiful day here in Chevy Chase, should be about 70 degrees with clear skies. About time.

    Will try to post a couple of Teddy/Zeta pictures a bit later in the day.

    Go Rockies! So Nationals! (Sorry, B)

  9. Mollypop's Mom

    I watched Jeff King’s wild ride and it scared me all over again. It reminded me of my wild ride at Snowhook Kennels.

    West coast Plunderer first!

    Bull-headed bikers in Paw and Order – only 3 months away!

    Mollypop’s Mom: AJ leaves in a few cliffs bumps in the trail to give the Plunderers some knowledge of “technical”. Jeff King’s ride reminded me of Ray’s Snowhook ride (Ray had to jump off the sled to avoid a tree) only more so.

    12:25 pm on April 10th, 2014

    Bull…short but funny.
    Sarah is pretty.
    Yes, please, more pictures of Teddy and Zeta.
    Howlers? How are your folks this morning?

    Diane, You and your family are in our prayers.

    Hoping for good news about the Storyteller and Macy.

    This is Teddy and Zeta hot on the trail of something. Sorry if it is sideways.

    This is Teddy and Zeta doing the stick dance.

  15. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    12:36 pm on April 10th, 2014

    And, last, after a six mile hike last Saturday, this is Zeta at home, resting peacefully. Isn’t she a real cutie. I think she is wearing her Baltimore Orioles jersey (we will forgive her for that).

  16. Siber-H
    12:44 pm on April 10th, 2014

    Thanks for the pictures! I don’t mind that Zeta is wearing a
    Baltimore Orioles jersey. I am sure Teddy is pleased that Zeta likes baseball.

  17. AJ
    12:46 pm on April 10th, 2014

    To be fair… Ray randomly jumped off the sled and ran towards the tree to give it a hug I guess. I guess he really cares about the environment.

  18. dawson
    1:13 pm on April 10th, 2014

    Chet’s Facebook post this morning is really cute. I think there is even a photo of Beau near the end. The dog wearing booties for the first time reminded me of trying to get a dog years ago to wear booties

  22. Masquers

    Waiting for good news regarding the Storyteller & Macy.
    Great fotos, links and chuckles by AJ, Wookie & Teddy’s Dad, Riö and CHobbit.
    Zeta & Teddy…the cutest couple ever…we here want to hug them both.
    DianeC: Sorry for your loss of a family member.

    Hope he doesn’t complain about his dinner tonight as much as he has been for days.

    4:32 pm on April 10th, 2014

    SIber H: Teddy is actually very understanding about Zeta’s passion for the Orioles. He does, however, display his loyalty to the Nationals by proudly wearing a Nationals dog tag on his harness, which his very best friend Wose got for him.

  29. Siber-H
    4:51 pm on April 10th, 2014

    I have a Rockies tag for my collar also.
    Rio and I do not have Rockies jerseys like Zeta’s jersey.
    Mom says one would be too big for Rio and too hot for me.
    IMHO…mom is just being cheap.

    Good afternoon all. Macy is doing much better, but is now hooked on can food. New bad news, our girl Niki is too sick to drive up today, but will come up tomorrow no matter what. If there is anything worse than driving 3 hours while sick, I do not want to think about it.

    Angie took me shopping today. For the first time in my life, I have a complete new outfit from the fresh pedicure and new shoes to the necklaces and earrings and new purse. It feels decadent but I spent less than some people spend on a single shirt, so I guess it is not that bad. Thanks to some Very Special People for making it happen.

    Barb cam home to some good news from T & G and Macy’s mom.

    Hectic day today. Barb was supposed to be home at 4:30 and didn’t get home till 5:45. We had our legs and paws crossed waiting for her .

    We discovered that a irresponsible neighbor’s cat is pooping in our veggie garden. We have read conflicting info on this. Any opinions? Evidently you have to have dogs on a leash but cats can run free. Is that fair?

  41. BearSpiritDog
    7:21 pm on April 10th, 2014

    Maggie: Not Fair! No it is not!

  42. Barb & Maggie
    7:44 pm on April 10th, 2014

    We are more concerned about the possible germs or contamination from the visiting kitty. I know you are not supposed to use dog or cat poop in your compost, so what is the fresh stuff going to do to our edibles? Seems like it is probably ok, but we are a little concerned.

    My Lady is home after an extended stay in the village. She is glad to be home and is going to rest.

    ML: Bargain! You are a shopper like my Lady. She says her favorite brand is CR—Clearance Rack.

    I have asked Luna if I can adopt ML as my very own.

  44. Barb & Maggie
    8:24 pm on April 10th, 2014

    Barb, Where I live, kats are suppose to be kept on their own property just as dogs are. It is illegal for people to let their kat roam around, but people do it all the time.
    Here we can set a humane trap for a kat, and animal control will come pick up the kat and trap. The owner can bail the kat out of the pound if they wish.

    Show!….Does anyone here watch that show called, “Resurrection”?….sniff!…Beau had high hopes it was about the Life of Jesus, but it is a strange sloooowwwww show that somehow keeps us interested anyways…snort!…Except Beau, he gave up on it right away…heh!heh!

  53. Barb & Maggie
    9:33 pm on April 10th, 2014

    Siber, We would like to do that, but are afraid the neighbors might get even with us if they found out it was us that humanely trapped their cat. We share a back yard fence, so it would be easy to throw something unsavory over the fence.

    Is there something we could put out in the garden that would make it unattractive to the kitty?

  54. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:33 pm on April 10th, 2014

    Rebecca!….Finally home!…snort!…I was starting to believe she was taken by aliens…grunt!…She never writes, she never calls, what’s up with that?…wuffle!

  55. Siber-H
    9:38 pm on April 10th, 2014

    Barb, I agree with you not wanting to make your neighbor angry.
    There has to be some sort of kitty repellant, but I don’t
    know what it would be.

  56. Macy's Mom
    10:14 pm on April 10th, 2014

    Thank you all for you validation of my wild day. I decided that if I have to enter the church as “The Widow Nash” I wanted to look as good as I can with what I have to work with. The heels are a little higher than I usually wear, but if I trip, everyone can just attribute my fall to grief. I suggested to Angie that I be carried in by the elbows by two nice looking firefighters, heh.

    Rick Nash

    1952 – 2014 | Obituary | Condolences
    Rick Nash Obituary
    Rick G. Nash passed away Thursday, April 3, 2014. Memorial service: 11 a.m. Saturday, April 12, at Martin United Methodist Church in Bedford. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Bedford Fire Department. Rick was born Oct. 25, 1952, in Fort Worth to Bob and Wanda Ward Nash. He began his career in the fire service as a volunteer firefighter at the age of 15. Upon graduating from L.D. Bell High School in 1971, he enrolled at TCJC and graduated with an associate’s degree in fire science. It was there where he met Mary Lou Mason and they were married Jan. 10, 1976. Rick was the epitome of a loving father, husband, all-around family man and community servant. He was the third paid member of the Bedford Fire Department, and he retired after 36 years of service there. Most recently, Rick enjoyed working at Donna Park Elementary as well as owning Rick’s Knife Shop, an online retail store. Rick was a longtime member of Martin United Methodist Church where for years he manned the barbecue smoker at the Lord’s Acre Fall Festival and was a member of The Journey Class. Rick served as a mentor to the Boy Scouts, helping them earn their fire-related badges and was one of the founding members of the Citizens Fire Academy and CERT. He participated in Amateur Radio (W5AWQ) and Santa USA, and was active in local political campaigns. He loved his furry companions, Annie, Macy, Holly, Biddy and especially his best buddy, Belle, who lived for rides in “their” beloved truck. Rick also enjoyed classic movies and TV and collecting and playing ukuleles and trumpets. Survivors: His loving wife, Mary Lou; daughters, Niki Nash of Austin and Angie Nash of Hurst; father, Bob Nash of Keller; brothers, Randy Nash of Fort Worth and Tim Nash of Euless; sisters, Connie Fleming of Keller and Kelly Maddox of Arlington; and mother-in-law, Mary Mason of Hurst.

    Good news today.
    The Storyteller & Rebecca made it home, MacyMinPin feels better, Macy’s Mom took a well deserved half a day for herself, HOH posted some good music and Rio’s friend doesn’t have to go to work tomorrow!
    Barb&Maggie: The law here says that cats must stay in their own yard or be on a leash. Not that anyone pays it any mind but you could trap a cat and, like SiberH says, they would have to pay to get it back. If it happens again the fine gets higher and higher. More and more municipalities are passing these laws. Cat poop is not good in gardens. There are possible health concerns.

    Barb – we had a problem with deer and rabbits in our garden last year. Gramp went to Tractor Supply and got some stuff that either is, or is made to smell like coyote pee. It sure worked on the deer – we bet most kats would be a little leary about it too.

    Yes, the Storyteller is home. All tucked in after his first edible dinner in a while. Gilly is in her glory, curled up next to him. She says only he scritches her ears just right.

    ML – good for you. There will be loving eyes looking down at you on Saturday, and we are sure that he will be pleased that you look so beautiful.

    Rio – tell your friend to have a lovely day off. And try not to give her a hard time, ok?

    Hello. I am just taking a quick timeout from sickbed duty. Mommy is still not feeling too good, so it is my job to keep her warm and cozy.
    Barb, cats are not dogs. Pure and simple. We are not made to be leashed, and nobody is going to “train” us to stay in a yard. As if. Me? I stay indoors because that is my choice, given my early finding my none too gentle Sasha, who broke my leg when I was but a wee little thing.
    But most cats do prefer the great outdoors. We do not do damage to things the way canines do. As for gardens, there is special stuff you can find at a pet store that deters us from wanting to “go” in a garden. Other than that, you should just relax and enjoy our cuteness.
