Chetspeak on Sunday

Everyone looked at Iggy under the table. He happened to be curled up, giving himself a good lick between his hind legs, one of his favorite pastimes.

“The hero of the piece,” Captain Stine said.

Whoa! I sidled over to the table, slid down under, and gave the hero of the piece a nip on the ear. And would you believe it? He nipped me back. So what could I do but renip? At which point, Iggy noticed that the back door was open. He bolted. I bolted after him. We ran around to the side of the house, knocked over the trash can, fought over the pizza remains, and took off into the warm night, ears flat back from a wind of our own making.

    Good morning everyone! We love it when Chet and Iggy have adventures. Mom says the HOH is mostly from the Iggy school of behavior. We don’t remember going to school. Happy Egg Day ????.
    Have a superlative Sunday!

    “and took off into the warm night, ears flat back from a wind of our own making.” Wonderful word picture, Spence.

    Wee Nigel understands ears flat back when he runs,and anyone who has spent any time with Rio knows first paw wind of his own making.

    Rio: Slim Jim induced wind is a hard thing to forget. Speaking of Slim Jims, I could go for a mid morning snack.

    Hello Everyone and Happy Sunday. I’m glad to hear about the nice variations in weather across the country (we’re having some more needed rain but I’m starting to wish it could be paced more evenly over multiple years).
    I always like it when Iggy makes an appearance–I wish we could hear more about him.

    RIO! You made me bust out laughing…the wind beneath your tail, indeed!

    Not that anyone asked, but I will be missing the Academy Awards because I am boycotting this year’s host (whose long-ago “The Man Show” was deeply offensive–yeah, it was supposed to be satire and had a female crew, but still insulting to anyone’s intelligence).
    I saw only Hidden Figures–a wonderful story but a pedestrian movie with cliche’d scenes (the triumphal march of the Women Who Know Fortran; playing a long trek to find a “Colored” Women’s restroom played for laughs; John Glenn requesting input from “that smart girl” pre-launch). Despite being a proud daughter of La-La Land, I have no desire to see a musical (although I like the idea of a choreographed traffic jam). The rest I may see if they come to my local dollar theater. Hmm. I sound grumpy. Apologies for that and have a great cold, warm, sunny, wintry, delightful day, all.

    Snack? Sounds good to us. We are practically starving with only homemade chili and grilled hot dogs last night and kibble with scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast (burp). Yes, a snack sounds delish.

    Wowser, Dawson and DianeC could team up to be the next team of film critics. Watch out Hollyweird!

    DianeC: Your Review of Hidden Figures fits right in with our Preconceived Notion of the plot-line after watching the previews.
    We’ll wait until it comes to Netflix or Amazon.

    Rio: Wind-Beneath-Your-Tail. Snicker.

    Moonlight!… Has 8 nominations. Has anyone seen this film? I have not heard of it I guess…snuffle!

    BSD–Acting was good, but I found out about it because I saw a book about “the untold story of the Black female mathematicians” (plural!!!) and read it. Highly recommended.
    Bill Paxton?!? Judge Wapner I can sort of understand, but…

    7:31 pm on February 26th, 2017

    Monday!….Heh!heh!…It is soooo enjoyable knowing I can stay up and watch the Academy Awards (as I still call them) and then watch some of the after-party stuff and not worry about my friend having to get up early tomorrow and drive on the highway of death to a job she surely hated …sweeet!snort!honk!

    7:31 pm on February 26th, 2017

    HOH–It sounds like you’re pretty well-fed, actually (now I wish I had some chili), but by all means have a snack whenever you can manage it (you never know when famine will strike, right?)

  24. Rio - The Evil Pug
    7:33 pm on February 26th, 2017

    Hidden!…Figures!…snort!…Now I know which movie that is. mathematicians!! We really want to see that one for sure…chuffle!

    Ticket!….So how does a pug go about getting 2 tickets to The Academy Awards?….sniff!…I have always wondered this for some reason…snort!

    Not that anyone asked, but Moonlight is about a boy in desperate need of a father figure finding one and eventually becoming a man. Excellent scoring, really excellent acting (including from the children involved) and a horrifying childhood depicted. Here’s a clip:

    Rio–Bummer–no, really strong. this is “Moonlight scene: Do you sell drugs” if you want to try Youtube.

    Report! The potential racers had their EKGs done and blood drawn today. After several years, the Giant and our Lady have the system down. We can report that Junior and his eye brows were tested, as were Truman, FourHawks, Mick, Chet, Bernie, Iggy and Little. This has been Ole Doc reporting ‘neath Belle Starr ‘neath Wee Nigel.

    Racers!…Is Dr Joe going to be in the Last Big Race?….yeeep!

  33. Ole Doc & Wee Nigel
    9:46 pm on February 26th, 2017

    Rio: Yes! And, the Giant is going to be a race judge.

  34. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:46 pm on February 26th, 2017

    Reporting!…Three levels of Official Reporting! That is impressive..snort!

  35. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:47 pm on February 26th, 2017

    Giant!….Which Checkpoint will the Giant be officiating over?…chuffle!

  36. Ole Doc & Wee Nigel
    9:48 pm on February 26th, 2017

    More reporting! We can report that Junior handled the vet check like a real pro. However, his eyebrows put up a bit of a fight.

  37. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:49 pm on February 26th, 2017

    Brows!…Did they run-away and hide again?…wheeze!

  38. Ole Doc & Wee Nigel
    9:57 pm on February 26th, 2017

    They didn’t run away and hide, but they required the Giant to hold and calm them. That is normally our Lady’s job. Once in a while she calls for backup. We had no idea that the Giant had a new nickname.

  39. Ole Doc & Wee Nigel
    10:02 pm on February 26th, 2017

    The Giant maybe at two or three different checkpoints. He doesn’t know which ones, yet.

    Hobbit: We can’t believe neither of us were nominated.

    10:32 pm on February 26th, 2017

    Caught!…Huskies and Pugs know how NOT to get caught or nominated for anything…heh!snort!

  46. Ole Doc & Wee Nigel
    10:43 pm on February 26th, 2017

    Speaking of caught, Maury the dog not the retired attorney was caught unawares today. Those close to the source say he was showing his manners during the vet check for the world to see. We were embarrassed until he explained that it is always a good idea to keep folks guessing.

    10:55 pm on February 26th, 2017

    Thanks Ole Doc and Wee Nigel. Good to know that my namesake has his manners well in paw.

  48. Ole Doc & Wee Nigel
    10:57 pm on February 26th, 2017

    Teddy’s Paw: It is possible that your namesake was so relaxed he was just shy of taking a nap on the EKG table. Did he stick around for a couple more belly rubs?—youse tell us.

  49. Rio - The Evil Pug
    11:06 pm on February 26th, 2017

    EKG!…And relaxed! This is all about the great training Teddy has received at the Mission Academy. How to keep his “Kool” under dire situations …snort!

    Awards!…We here are still watching the Academy Awards…but we are fading..slightly…wuffle!

    11:30 pm on February 26th, 2017

    We like to think we’ve had a paw in Teddy’s education. That halo wasn’t going to get crooked by itself.

    How long we have waited to utter these three simple words: Rio, pucker up!

    Yeeeeep!…I’m running upstairs to my warm soft bed now!…gasp!
