    Wozer! Grrreaat Cover!

  2. B.Stover
    9:29 am on June 14th, 2014

    I like the cover but wonder why there is one for an “unbound” estory.

    Good morning all.

    B: Maybe it is the same as A Cat Was Involved where the eStory was included as a Bonus with the New Book.

    Good morning, everyone! Nice cover, perhaps limited printing for book signings like “A Cat Was Involved”? BTW, Darah found that very tasty 🙂
    How ’bout those Kings?
    Have a satiristic Saturday.

    Good morning all. Special good thoughts going out to Amalia and her brother,Boobear’s dad and MaryLou. ML, we definitely want you around, you are a very important part of this family.

    Howlers, Barb remembers a Hitchcock movie called Marnie. It stared Tippi Hedren, and in one scene she was jumping her horse and they fell. The horse had a broken leg and had to be put down. Is that the movie you mentioned last night?

    Right. I forgot about the cover for A Cat Was Involved.

    Barb&Magpie: Joining you in Sending Hugs & Positive Thoughts to the families of the Royals, BooBear and Macy’s Mom.
    Thinking of Alice & Abbie’s Staff too.

    Hounds: We think alike, it is true, but you Say it Better than I do.

    Thinking about A Cat Was Involved…sadly my treasured copy that was Pawtographed by Chet himself was lost in the midst of shuffling around last November. Sob.

    Happy Flag Day!

    I love the cover for Tail of Vengeance! I have noticed that even though Bernie is included in the e-stories, it is Chet who is the star of the cover. Not complaining, just pondering.

    Staff, Royal Mum, ML, BooBear, Karen and Truman… you are always in my thoughts, and heart.

    BlueCat up top! Purrrrrr

    BSSD: Our copy of “A Cat Was Involved” has been Darah approved. Her opinion:
    Very tasty…burp.

    Wose: Flag Day? It is Flag Day?
    What are you and Grizz up to this Weekend?

  12. Tupper and Gilly
    10:45 am on June 14th, 2014

    Morning all.

    Yeep! We just remembered that tomorrow is Father’s Day. Mama has been so busy chasing her tail, she hasn’t had a moment to think about this, never mind shop for it. Yeep yeep yeep….

    Macy – we would appreciate if you would take your Mom firmly by the paw, and remind her how important she is to so many. We know she has suffered a terrible and heartbreaking loss, but she needs to know that there are lots and lots and lots of people who are here to support her, who love her dearly, and who think she is a wonderful and necessary person.
    She means the world to her precious daughters. She is rescuer and caretaker to the fourleggeds who worship her. And this here blog thinks she is marvelous, wonderful, funny, witty, thoughtful and IMPORTANT.
    And if she gives you any guff, you go ahead and bite her in the butt. (or the ankle, for those of us who are vertically challenged)

  13. Zeusiköv
    10:47 am on June 14th, 2014

    It is Flag Day! I saw Pop put up a flag early this morning! I had no idea why he did that. Thanks for clarifying, Wose.
    I am told that this is “Zeus training weekend”. I do not like the sound of that. Training usually means lots of “No Zeus” and “Bad Zeus” and shock collars, and “Get in your crate”. I’ll let youse know how this goes. I may need rescuing.

    Barb: Mom didn’t think it was a Hitchcock film, but it was so long ago, she does not remember. Nobody in the movie worried about the horse. Mom cried and cried for the horse.

  14. Kat
    10:51 am on June 14th, 2014

    They are taking my Zeus away. I heard them say it. This makes me sad.

    ML, you are the funniest person I know. Funny is good. I think it is the most important thing a 2-legged can be. If you come visit me, you and I could share jokes all day and night! I am very funny too.

    I told Zeus all about Chet. Now he can’t wait for July 8. Is that tomorrow?

  15. Thieves!
    11:10 am on June 14th, 2014

    Macy: Not being vertically challenged, we can help with the butt biting Golinka recommended.

    Our lady is just miles from seeing Coach and Bev. She can’t wait.

  16. Tupper and Gilly
    11:21 am on June 14th, 2014

    Thieves – we hope your Lady will give Bev and Coach big hugs and butt-wiggles from us.

    Love you, Mary Lou!

    I love the cover!!! It is a perfect snapshot of Chet and the American West.

    Zeusikov, Good Luck and let us know how it goes.

    ML, We love you and are very glad you are one of us. Tupper and Gilly said it all and said it much better than we can.

    The movie, Fargo, is going to be on one of those classic movie channels later today..

  19. Masquers
    12:42 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Siber: Thanx for the heads up on Fargo…the movie…we’ll plan on watching it later.
    ML: Hang in there! It will get better. We promise.

    SnowBella is visiting MaBella! What could be better? You tell me.

  21. Masquers
    1:21 pm on June 14th, 2014

    …and Coach, of course.
    She’ll be there for Dad’s Day tomorrow. Wooohooo!

  22. Masquers
    1:25 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Sorry. That was very insensitive. There are some who won’t have that pleasure.
    Purrs & love to you.

    1:55 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Masquers, That wasn’t insensitive. It is just stages of life we all go through.

    My dad is going to get a clean dog for Father’s Day. Can you believe this: My mom made me an appointment with the groomer tomorrow at 6:pm. Her husband is now working strange hours so it has to be scheduled when he is home to help.
    What about baseball? What about the World Cup?

    Hi, I’m Blondie, don’t know if y’all remember me. I’m with the HOH most of the time. They are really nice, especially Darah. Boy, is she BIG! They are very special here but I don’t understand why they don’t like it if I don’t plan far enough ahead to go out the dog door before I piddle or poop. Hey,I’m a kid! And I hope I don’t make them angry, Look how comfy I am here:

    I guess my training has been postponed. I went for a little walk in a little village today. Those ‘rents walk way too slow, and every time I really got moving, they stop and make me sit. Why? You tell me.
    Then I got dumped in the house, and The Reds went away to some taproom. I am crying foul.

  29. Herd of Hounds
    2:51 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Zeus, at least you have screens you can jump through. A dog door and a screen room that starts at over my head. I ask, is that fair?

    3:09 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Blondie still has sad eyes. She doesn’t know that she has blue skies ahead. She will learn. I remember when we first found Alice (or when Alice first found us) she had very sad eyes. That has changed!

  31. Masquers
    4:08 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Kings won the Stanley Cup. That cannot be good news here on the blog.
    Staff: Those days are only a memory. Can Alice really be the same kat?

    4:42 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Hello All–I won’t comment on the kings’ victory as I find myself inexplicably taken up with the World cup (despite knowing nothing about the game).
    HOH–Blondie is lovelier every time I see her–I hope you’re all getting on well.
    Zeus–I understand your frustration, but try and humor them for now and you’ll have other opportunities later.
    T and G–I hope things are going more peacefully in your household. Be strong and supportive for your Mama.
    Everyone–We lost Ruby Dee yesterday! This isn’t good…
    HOH–Can you give people credit for buying into consumerism?

    4:45 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Grizz and I are back from a day of mall walking. The drive to the mall is a nice one, especially on a nice day like today.

    We here are happy that the Pixie will be seeing Coach on Father’s Day, and seeing Ma Bella too.

    ML: You know I love you, because we are twin sisters of different mothers. Don’t you forget.

    Zeusikov: What are you and the Reds given Pop for Father’s Day?

    Snowhook: What do all youse give the Giant?

    SiberH!…The Rockies are playing the Giants right now. We came inside because a big storm is brewing outside….sniff!…In the nick of time if you ask me!…heh!…Now it is time to really relax!

    Rebecca!…I offered to track her flight but when she told me she was taking off at 1:30am my time last night I suggested Maskers track the flight…snort!…But for some reason he would not reply to my Lil’ Go-Phone text….sniff!…Anyway it sounds like she has arrived safe an sound in the lower 48….wheeze!

  38. Siber-H
    5:27 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Woohoo! I am watching the game, Rio.
    We are having a wind storm while you have a real storm.

    We had a great time at Liberty Taproom. The waitresses all love us and us. As soon as we arrived, they brought out 2 big cold ones just for us. Oh, and Mom and Pop each got a beer instead. They also got some crab and artichoke dip, and some sweet potato fries. All in all. It was a fun time.
    Zeus waited at home. After his training walk, Mom determined that he is not yet ready for prime time. Heh heh!
    Tomorrow Zeus continues his training weekend. We don’t think he will pick this stuff up any time soon. Mom says that it is apparent that the dude was never walked on a leash before.

    We had not heard that Ruby Dee passed away. Just read that she was 91, and married to Ossie Davis from 1948 till his death in 2005. Their ashes will be in one urn and they will be together for eternity.

    Josh was not here today, but Ben came to do some roofing. He brought his wife as a helper. You don’t see too many women doing roofing. She was a darling little blond and totally buffed. Guess she does bike racing and triathlons in her spare time.

    DianeC: World Cup! Yes!
    Riö: Sorry to have missed your text, but I had a late night/early AM gig in Seattle.
    Debated watching the movie Fargo, but decided to record it instead. We don’t want anything to spoil the grand finale on Tuesday.

  42. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:30 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Maskers!….Good idea not to watch the Old Fargo right now…snort!…I actually think the TV version is way better…heh!

    Thunder!…..yeeep!….I think one of my new toys just went under the big bed…yeeep!…It is a hot-dawg and I really need to go get it…snort!

  43. Loulou
    6:34 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Mommy tried the same thing with me when I was walking on the leash. Every time I broke into a gallop, she stopped and I sat down. We did this over and over and over. Then mommy bought me another harness. This is my fourth one. My leash now hooks in the front band around my chest. I don’t like this harness because every time I start to run it turns me around. What’s up with this?

  44. Zeus
    6:43 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Loulou, these guys were talking about using my harness next time too. Pop actually thinks he may put my harness and my slip collar on!

    6:55 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Lou Lou, it sounds like some kind of torture device. I would not stand for it if I were you.

    Zeus, sounds like you did a good job of teaching the ‘rents how you prefer to walk on a leash. My mom is proving more difficult to train.

    BSD, Masquers and Naaaana, mom says mmmwaah, which is how I spell kisses. (sorry, but I have to question her judgement in kissing a kat. No offense old boy, but….standards and all)

    Big hugs to all for the encouraging words. I best not bite mom anywhere, but if someone else does it, heh-heh not my fault.

  46. Riö – The Evil Pug
    7:05 pm on June 14th, 2014

    SiberH!…Oh NO! Rex Brothers is pitching….grump!…We can kiss this game goodbye right now…grumble!…That guy loses more games than I can count on my four paws. The Giants have Sergio Romo – who is awesome…sob!…WE are DOOMED.

  47. Siber-H
    7:07 pm on June 14th, 2014

    I am afraid so, Rio.

  48. Siber-H
    7:09 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Maybe we could pool our treat money and offer to buy Brothers and then give him to the Isotopes.

  49. Riö – The Evil Pug
    7:10 pm on June 14th, 2014

    CHobbit!….Why did you mention that movie “Sunshine” last night?…snort!…That was one of my friends favorite movies of all time at the time which was WAY back when….grunt!…John Denver sang the theme song, “Sunshine On My Shoulders” for the movie…wheeze!

  50. Riö – The Evil Pug
    7:15 pm on June 14th, 2014

    OMYDAWG!…Our batters have saved the day!…WOOOOOO!….5 ta 4 top of the 9th….gasp!wheeze!….WOOOO!….Hold on to it – do not let Brothers pitch for dawgs sake….gah!

  51. Riö – The Evil Pug
    7:17 pm on June 14th, 2014

    WOOOO!….That was the final! I thought the Giants were going to get to bat again for some reason!…HOOOO!HOOOO!…Rocks WONNIT!

  52. Riö – The Evil Pug
    7:19 pm on June 14th, 2014

    SNORT!…Nix on that last remark. The Giants do get to bat again…wheeze!…The announcers were acting like the Rockies had wonnit…sniff!…Not yet.

  53. Loulou
    7:20 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Mommy says that since my Easy Walk harness hooks in the front, if I pull too hard it will make me turn around facing her and have to walk backwards. Funny about that.

    Loulou and Zeusikov. Greetings from Vermont. There are so many new good smells here and a guy Is just going to get real excited going after them. It seems that on our six mile hike this morning going up Mt. Tom, I had problems with mom and dad just walking way too slow to keep up with me. Sounds like youse guys have experienced similar difficulties. And it does become an ever longer walk when every fifteen feet or so, you get stopped, being told “no pull” or “slow” and then made to sit too. The indignity of it all, as I am sure youse understand. But I will continue to work hard to get them into better shape so that they can keep up with me in the future.

  65. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:02 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Confounding!….I just don’t get what Teddy and Zeus are going on about….grunt!….When Beau and I are on our walks all we hear is “COME ON LETS MOVE IT!”…”QUIT STARRING INTO SPACE AND START WALKING FOR PETE’s SAKE! WE DO NOT HAVE ALL NIGHT!”…snorkel!

    I couldn’t locate anything recent about Gary Busey on the web.

  67. Riö – The Evil Pug

    SiberH!…Thank goodness. I was fearful that he bit the dust with his big teeth…yeeep!

  68. BearSpiritDog
    10:15 pm on June 14th, 2014

    Still crazy after all these years. But Busey’s Wacky Behavior isn’t all an act, more the result of a near fatal motorcycle accident in the late 80’s. It damaged his ability to control Impulsive Behavior, such as what he says and does. His accident also changed Motorcycle Helmet Laws.
    That was probably more than you wanted to know.

    Teddy & Zeus: My Experience with Walks has been the same. I must warn you…it’s a Lost Cause…never could teach Nana to keep up.

    10:26 pm on June 14th, 2014

    There was a Facebook rumor started that Gary Busey died today. It was a false rumor. If you do an Internet search for “Gary Busey 2014” you can find the story about it being fake.

    We are celebrating. Today is the first day in two weeks that we didn’t have to go to any hospital for anything.
