Congratulations Buster!

The random number generator – built in a hipster Seattle garage – has spoken: “Dude,” it said. “Chet’s friend of the month for July is Buster.”

Congrats to Buster. He’ll be over in the special place on the right for the whole month (where Millie is at the moment) and his human companion will receive a signed and paw-printed copy of The Sound and the Furry (as soon as we get a mailing address). In August, this could be you! Just upload a photo to the friends gallery. Our Seattle division takes over from there.

Welcome new friends undercover dude, Peaches, Sophie – all now eligible for the August Friend of the Month.

Spence will be at Death and Dessert at Falmouth (Mass.) Library tonight. Dessert at 6:30, panel at 7. All new material! Or newish!

Buster:

    Z-Man! So sorry it wasn’t your handsome mug up there…cheer-up…there’s always next month, right?
    that sage advice goes for Sammie & Riö too…
    there’s “always next month”.
    It’s going to be a HOT one here. Off to do what we must do in the kool of the day. We may be back much later to say hey.
    HOH & Howlers and Belle-Starr (who closed the blog with a double dawson last night, smirk) and all the rest of youse…have a very good day.

    Greetings!

    Zeusikov, As my dear friend Masquers said, there is always next month. Then you will be eligible for PAW and ORDER!

    It only gets hotter here in Westchester. Grizz and I will do a little computer work applying for jobs, then it is OUT!OUT!OUT! to a cool place.

    Belle Starr, I know of what you speak. Grizz always accuses me of hogging the covers. I am small and meek, and would never, ever do such I thing. Youse believe me, right?

    Good morning, All. Congratulations to Buster. That is a cute name for a cutie pie Member of the Nation.
    So long, Millie. We will miss you.
    Masquers and Wose, our Zeus is not a patient man. Oh no he is not.
    Guess what? We got a pool! What we do with it is drink, drink, drink. Mom tells us to dip 10. Then we drink again.

  8. Wose-the small and meek
    9:58 am on July 1st, 2014

    O’Howlers: Is that pool big enough for two-leggeds like me? I am small and meek, and love, love, love, playing with dogs.

    1:43 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Teddy has a pool too, although at times it is unclear whether its primary function is as a wading pool or as a very big drinking bowl. Very hot here too (92 with lots of humidity and a low of only 74 tonight), with tomorrow even worse. I think Teddy is dreaming of cool Vermont; I know we are.

  19. Tupper and Gilly
    2:06 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Hot. Humid. Harumph.

    Mama put the air conditioner on today for the first time. Then she took Gramp to the eye doctor. Woo hoo – big fun.

    She is thinking of ways to make herself even crazier, and is wondering if she should take Gramp to Costco. What a place for a guy who can’t make decisions.

    tee hee

    I have good news and bad news. The good news is the first monarch of this year hatched out this morning. I wish it was hot and humid for the monarchs sake but it is 60 degrees and rainy and very windy. The monarch is tucked into the blooming Mock Orange shrubbery. Hopefully that will be enough protection for the little guy.

    The bad news. My cell phone took a dive in the toilet. I suppose it was inspired by all the talk of pools.. grump.

  21. Staff
    2:40 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Oops…Monarch number two just hatched. It is about 12 inches from my left ear and I heard a little clicky sound and there it is. All curled up and crinkled from it’s little monarch womb. YAY

  22. Staff
    3:06 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Hang on little guy (or gal). This is Monarch number one (and me) before sending it off into the cold, wet, windy world.

    3:11 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Staffie or staggie, Mom found a new quilt store 2 1/2 miles from the homestead. You have too much fabric? Tuff shiitake, she has some more for ya since she is: a) too lazy and 2) too unco-ordinated to ever do anything creative :)
    HOT here too…102 + down the mountain, 96*F here at the yellow brick abode. GAH! Happy July :(
    Teddy, we look at the pool mom got us as a sit-in-it drinking bowl :)

    3:27 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Nana, Safe, happy journey. I’ll miss you.

    Not fair. Flutterbys jump on Staff and fly away from HOH :(

    6:15 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Staff, That is a wonderful picture of you with the butterfly!

    People who say they love summer, I hope you are enjoying this heat and humidity.

    Heads up, it is Wolfie’s mom’s birthday today. Happy, Happy to Mary, or better yet peaceful and quiet.

  34. dawson
    6:39 pm on July 1st, 2014

    WolfieWigglebutt: Give your mom a big birthday kiss from me! Hope relaxation is on the menu along with cake!

    That was a great overtime period of the soccer game but the outcome was not what we wanted.

  35. Barb & Maggie
    6:54 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Happy Birthday Mary, Have a quiet and un-stressful day!

    Great pic of Staff and baby flutterbys.

    Happy birthday Mary! May you have a year where the world is as good to you as you are to the world.

    Happy Canada Day, Dawson!

    Staff – you wear your butterflies well. Thank you for all your hatching and protecting.

    Gramp had so much fun at Costco. He now has his own (gigantic) wedge of blue cheese, and a quart of olive salad. What a character.

  40. Thieves!
    7:29 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Saints like Wolfie’s maw get extra cake on their birthday. Those are the rules. We know because we just made it up.

    Happy birthday and head bumps to Mary!!!!

    7:53 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Oh no!
    Rio: Another brutal day at work, another month without being friend of the month, baseball team losing…you and your friend cannot catch a break!
    Hey!
    This’ll cheer you up. The son of the man who lives in this house was in town and during the conversation he mentioned he was doing a little bit of quilling. “Do you know what that is?”
    “Yes I do!” says I and pointed above my head where the last quilling I purchased at a Snowhook Auction proudly stands. He came a little closer and his mouth fell open and his eyes bugged out a little. “Well, I’m not that good.” says he.

    Stay strong, little 4 legged (probably bigger than I think) Snowhook Kennel puppies, especially Amalia and Melanie, who were awfully sick!

    Go Snowhook!

  53. Billy's Buddy

  55. Barb & Maggie
    9:55 pm on July 1st, 2014

    When Barb first moved to the farm she got a mama donkey and she had a little baby that looked just like that. They are super cute.

    Have an early day tomorrow. Up at 6:00, and then meeting up with Kelly and her gang to watch the kids play golf. Ben is still learning but Baye and Lily are really good.

    Sweet dreams all. Be back tomorrow afternoon.

  56. Herd of Hounds

    BearSpiritDog: Nana takes off late tonight/early this morning? I hope she’s getting some sleep or maybe eating a very healthy meal before take-off! Don’t forget your camera! And your passport! (Just in case Billy’s Buddy shows up in Duluth!)

    Truman: HOH called us the good guys of the world. We like the way that sounds. We here think you there are also a good guy of the world. We like the strong, silent type just like AJ. Head bumps to you, dear sir.

    Tyb: Looking good, pal!

  61. dawson
    10:54 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Rio: I will have to tell the poor lad that your friend has been practicing for a few years (I didn’t, heh, heh). The look on his face was priceless but I do not want to have him discouraged in any of his artistic pursuits.

  62. Macy's mom
    10:55 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Goodnight all. Mom got a call from her doc today. He is refering her to a specialist in her type of cancer. He says it is a fast growing kind. I am going to attempt to talk to him tomorrow to get a little more info. If she signed the sheet saying that I could have info, PLUS I have her medical power of attorney, he should be able to talk to me, right? I want answers and I want them yesterday. I really need this to be a good outcome. My mom and I are not all touchy feely with one another, and I don’t know what to do for her. sigh. I just need to talk it over with Rick, sniffle.

  63. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:56 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Dawson!…Yes, it takes a lot of Auctions and Boutiques to become well crafted in the Art of Quilling…heh!heh!…My friend is in a quandry right now. She has pieces and parts but nothing to show for it all…gah!

    11:18 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Macy’s Mom, Yes, Medical Power of Attorney will be as good as being the patient yourself.
    It is okay that you are not touchy feely. My mom isn’t either.
    Being strong and being present and taking care of things like you already are is an excellent form of support.

    Night All

  66. dawson
    11:30 pm on July 1st, 2014

    Carpola!
    Macy’s Mom: Yes they should give you answers. This is so NOT what you need right now. Maybe have a chat with Rick before you go to bed tonight. Ask him what he thinks. He’s awfully close to the angels right now. Maybe he can send you a message while you sleep.

    Looking up Australian Independence Day and it is January (27th I think). Then checked on the weather in Canberra and it may go to 30 degrees there tonight. Brrr! Stay warm LizF and Ruby Red Dog!

  67. Tupper and Gilly
    11:32 pm on July 1st, 2014

    ML – there is a difference between close, and bring touchy feelie. We know how good you are to your mother, and you always have been.
    By all means talk to her doc – you are entitled. And if it is a fast growing kind, he will most likely want to talk to you too to formulate a battle plan.
    And do talk it over with your beloved. He is still with you, and you will hear his voice.
    Trust me.

  68. c.hobbit
    12:22 am on July 2nd, 2014

    ML: my mom wasn’t touchy-feely either and wanted life to proceed as if normal to the end. You should be able to get info from the doctor then you and your mom can make a plan. Sometime during the night I hope you feel the mantle of peace descend and know what to do.

  69. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    12:39 am on July 2nd, 2014

    Thank you, everyone, for your good birthday wishes. It was a nice calm day, and I enjoyed it greatly.

    8:21 am on July 2nd, 2014

    Good morning all. I have been awake for what seems like hours. That is not like me. I tend to sleep to “get away from it all”. I have had breakfast, cleared out a drawer and set up file folders. I am running out of excuses not to mow. Dam I hate mowing. It is already in the upper 80’s at 7 a.m. I doubt that it will get any cooler, so off I go. Later taters.\

    Nana, sorry about the goats. Hope you got where you were going. Naaaaaaaaana
