    Congratulations to Fragment. It will be a pleasure to see you each time we log in
    this month.
    Though we weren’t blogging much in September, we were able to read enough to know that it wasn’t the best month for too many of you. Here’s hoping that October will treat everyone better.

    Good Morning Tyb, and thank you for the October page. You’re such a handsome dog!

    Congratulations, Fragment! The Prof and I think you are adorable!

    Lots of good-looking FOC today.

    Bear, please check your SDD. Let me know if I should send the book directly back to you!

    Greetings to all!

    So, this morning I turned over the October page on the Snowhook calendar, and what did I notice? Today, October 1st, is the birthday of one of the greatest mom’s ever….LUNA! Happiest of birthday’s to you.

    (whispering): Belle Starr, I hope you got your four-legged something nice for her special day….

    I love Fragment’s ears.

    Thank you for the calendar Tyb.

    Howlers: I forgot to say yesterday that I liked the picture. I’ve never seen a horse sitting before.

    Good morning all.

    Congrats Fragment! We would like to hear about your name also.

    Someone, I think either G & B or Macy, mentioned that they saw Kelly and the girls in a commercial on HGTV. I guess they were on a couple times on NBC this morning. It is for the Fall Sale promotion. Would you believe we still have not seen it!

    We agree with TYB – there was way too much sadness in September. October will be much better for all of us.

    Yankees beat the Blue Jays and have secured a playoff slot. But I now have a second team to root for and it’s the Blue Jays! Buffalo just signed on to be their farm team. This could be a problem.

    Tyb we can always count on you to greet each new month in style.

    Congrats to Fragment, the new FOM. I noticed little Fragment a while back because of the name and the cuteness factor.

    Today is my last full day in Montana. A Catty Librarian and her Sailor Man drove in last night with a big rented moving truck. They are on their way to pick me up so we can unload that truck.

    All those under the quilt are in my thoughts and Happy Birthdays and Anniversaries to those celebrating. Especially to Luna, mother of the month.

    I rode a horse yesterday for the first time. How exciting!

    10:46 am on October 1st, 2012

    Another beautiful autumn day!

    O.Howlers: We too liked the photo yesterday. Don’t believe we have ever seen a horse in this position before. Is this unusual?

    Barb&Magpie: NBC! The family is hitting the big time. We would love to see the commercial. Hope they air it again. The channel is tuned in…just in case.

    Welcome to Fragment! Hope to hear from you soon.

    (Sorry Sammie! and Rio too)

    Wose: Check your SDD.

    Hi to Dawson!

    10:58 am on October 1st, 2012

    Good morning all. Gilly is off sulking in a corner because she isn’t FOM

    Today is a big day for our Gramp. He never told us whileit was happening, but he thought he was going blind. He went to see the eye doctor, and it turns out he has operable cataracts. They scheduled his surgery immediatly since he really couldn’t see much at all anymore. So today, he goes to get the first eye done.
    We read him the blog entries from MPM about her cataract surgery, and he feels much better about it, and is looking forward to being able to see clearly again.
    (meanwhile, we are still fuming that he was having such a terrible time, and didn’t “want to bother” us and tell us about it – but, oh well, water under the bridge)

    I’m back from my mini high school reunion. Amherst High Class of ’59. There were 13 of us and we were on the go from early morning to late night since last Thursday. I have just barely survived. I have no clue how the others managed to do this.

  15. Rose
    11:01 am on October 1st, 2012

    T&G, sending love and good thoughts to your Gramp.

  16. Mollypop's Mom
    11:06 am on October 1st, 2012

    A cataract is when the lens of the eye starts turning gray. It gradually starts getting darker and darker.

    Royals – The first thing your Gramps will see when he leaves the office is a very blue sky. He will be so happy!

  17. Rose
    11:07 am on October 1st, 2012

    Bear, SDD checked and responded to.

    11:30 am on October 1st, 2012

    Thank you all for the birthday wishes! My Lady says I’m a young ten. I say I’m a wonderful ten. I got extra snuggles this morning—my favorite.

    T&G: good wishes being sent to your gramp. I think it must be a guy thing.

  22. Wolfie Wigglebutt

    Happy October and congrats to Fragment. You are adorable.

    My Grandma Jean is doing better. They will try to remove the ventilator today and hopefully mom will be able to head for home tomorrow. She is running out of paid time off.

  23. Barb & Maggie
    11:38 am on October 1st, 2012

    MPM, Glad you survived the weekend and still had fun.

    Best thoughts for Gramps during and after his surgery.

    Eric is gone with his bad, bad nail gun. Maggie had a mini breakdown and had to hide in the closet, panting and slobering like a Newf! She is now exhausted and needs a nap.

  24. OleyHowlers
    11:43 am on October 1st, 2012

    Dawson, we would like to hear more about your horseback ride. Whose horse?
    T&G, give Gramps kisses from Sasha, Meashka, and Kat. Dima doesn’t kiss…he will instead tell Gramps to let youse guys know when something is ailing him.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY to M.O.M. (Mother of Month)!

    Regarding Abby’s picture: Horses do not sit…except for Abby. After she is done rolling, she gets to a sitting position, and stays there for awhile before standing all the way up. She is the only horse we have ever seen do that, and we think it is hysterical.

    Congratulations Fragment! You are a cute doggy.

    I don’t know yet who I will be cheering for in the playoffs, besides Texas, but I know who it won’t be.

    Macy, We read your post last night…glad the stolen Sibers made it back home.

  26. Macy the Min-pin
    12:26 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Thanks for the support Mr. Husky. I wish they would hurry up and clinch the division. The parents make a lot of noise while watching the game.

    Last night was a TV bonanza. Dexter, BE, and our very favorite, Homeland. And the Fabulous Beekman Boys are now on the cooking channel. On the down side, Weeds is gone forever, and Perception is gone for the year. But…Person of Interest is back,as is Parenthood, and the Sherlock Holmes show looks interesting. If not for TV mom would just be staring at the walls.

  27. Rose
    12:26 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Good morning all. Thank Dog it’s October.

    Happy Birthday to the young Luna.

    Hmmm, haven’t I heard The Royals’ Mum talking about Grandpa driving just recently? He may not be able to see well right now, but he grows some righteous tomatoes.

    Slept all day yesterday. Will probably do the same today.

  29. Barb & Maggie
    1:45 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Macy, Barb likes the Beekman Boys and Parenthood too.

    Don’t donkeys and mules sit like Abby? Thinking that they do.

    For Melanie:

  31. OleyHowlers
    2:23 pm on October 1st, 2012

    We didn’t know that about mules. Our horse v-e-t thinks Abby looks like a mule! She has big ears. She is an old gal that we rescued a few years ago.

    We don’t know any of the T.V. shows youse are mentioning.

    Belle Starr is up top!

  33. Tupper and Gilly
    4:25 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Back home and all is well with Gramp. The staff told Mama to come back in 2 1/2 to 3 hours. So she and Dad went to do some errands I. That area- it’s kind of far from home, so it seemed like a good chance to do those errands.
    They got Gramp checked in, and headed to their first errand. Before they could even finish that, the surgery place called and said Gramp was all set- in just 45 minutes!
    So they dropped everything and went and got him. On the way home, they stopped by a certain grocery store. Lo and behold, who do you think they saw there?

    Busy!…My friend asked the new guy, who’s only been there for this month of hell so far, if he drank….snort!…He said, “I do now.”….heh!…You can’t tell me they don’t have a good time at the ole’ busy place…grunt!

  37. Siber-H
    5:09 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Golinka’a Bear really looks good in his new home. He belongs there.

    Sounds as if Gramp’s surgery went as well as Mollypop’s Moms. I’m sure he is relieved.

  38. Princess Sam

    Rio: I’ve considered taking up drink as a result of your friend’s job. 😉

    T&G: I hope Gramp’s recovery is as speedy as his surgery.

    Having seen Golinka’s bear in real life, I have to say it sure is something. I even have a picture of the artist and her best friend standing next to said bear. I was threatened under penalty of death not to share the photo with anyone.

  40. Melanie
    6:04 pm on October 1st, 2012

    MPM, that is very true. I’m saving the picture for Zoe.

    The new guy sounds like he is sane.

    SnowBella, you better not!

  41. Melanie
    6:07 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Zoe and I have been having trouble with any interesting in eating.
    We know we are supposed to eat, but eh . .

    So yesterday I did gluten free crab cakes and cucumber salad.

    Today? 3 large shrimp each. shelled and veined. a glob of blue cheese in the curve and a half of piece of bacon wrapped around it. Then broiled.

    At least the last two days we have finished our plates. The Pack doesn’t approve, they like it when we don’t eat.

    Back to sleep again.

  43. Mollypop's Mom
    6:32 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Melanie – When I was at your house and Zoe and I were sitting on the couch, one of the newfs hopped up between us, partly on my lap. A little heavier than when Sammie hops up. Ooof!

  44. Rose
    7:01 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Wolfie, I am very happy to hear about your grandma. May she continue to have a speedy recovery.

    T&G, your mum’s Harvest Bear is very handsome, and looks just perfect in his new home!

    Rio! In honor of your friend, I will hoist a few.

  45. Rose
    7:13 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Belle Starr, are you being a good girl on your four-legged’s birthday? Did you give her anything sparkly as a gift?

  46. Barb & Maggie
    7:16 pm on October 1st, 2012

    We second that Rose. Marvelous idea!

    The chicken coop Barb ordered from Ca. has arrived. Peaches is coming on the 10th, so Josh has to have it assembled by then. Fair warning, Josh!

  47. Rose
    7:19 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Rio! I may have to visit you and your friend in May ’13. The Rockies are playing my beloved Yankees in inter league play….

  48. Mollypop's Mom
    7:19 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Rio – I had red wine with dinner and now I will have a vodka for your friend.

  49. Tupper and Gilly
    7:43 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Mama decided that the benefits of 4 oz of red wine are scientifically proven, so she will have a glass tonight in honor of Rio’s friends’s job.

    Just talked to Melanie – she says she promises to be there for the Elementary party next Thursday – she “can’t wait to celebrate her son being a DB – wait a minute, that doesn’t sound right – oh, you know what I mean”.

    Gramp says thanks for all your support. He was pretty nervous, but now says it was all a snap, and the only thing that bothers him is that his eyeglasses don’t fit over the giant patch they put on him. We are having a good time with pirate jokes..tee hee

    7:43 pm on October 1st, 2012

  51. Belle Starr
    7:50 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Wose: I sure did give my four-legged something sparkly—me!

    T&G: I though the YSAS DB debut was this week. Am I mistaken? We had to party on the right day. Or, we could party twice.

  52. Staff

  59. Princess Sam

  61. Belle Starr
    9:10 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Well, everyone, the Washington Nationals have now won their first division title since 1933. They kind of backed into it, having lost to Philadelphia tonight but the Atlanta Braves lost to Pittsburgh, which was all we needed, since our magic number was just one. Woo! Woo! Wookie

    Hey Guys! The rents just got home from seeing Mom’s cousin get inaugurated as our county’s Poet Laureate. She said that was a big deal, and they listened to lots of poetry. Our cousin’s 4-legged, Song, was there too. Song is aservice dog.

    Mom thinks she has been drinking too much and was going to quit for awhile. But after reading more on Rio’s friend’s job, she is ready to hoist a few more! Heh heh

    We have to tell youse what happened here last night. First, you need to know how Sasha’s husband left us. One day when he was old and frail, we couldn’t find him anywhere. Very strange since by then, he mostly just laid on the patio. Finally, Mom found him inside our springhouse, crawled up into the old water trough which had old, very dirty, ice cold water in it. Misha couldn’t even stand. It was his way of going off on his own to die. They took him to the vet after warming him up.
    After Sashha hiked one and a half miles of rugged trail on Saturday, she walked around the house with Mom last night and hung out by the fire pit with them. She hasn’t been doing that at all. Mom and Pop started talking about how much better she seemed after getting exercise, when all of a sudden, the door of the springhouse popped open. Now that door had been latched good because Mom never wanted it open again, yet it popped open! Mom and Pop were so startled, and Mom yelled “No, you can’t have her yet!”

    Weird story, huh?

  77. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:56 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Whoa!…Youse Howlers are blowing my pug mind tonight with yer stories…snort!.. Luckily Sasha did not go in the shed just yet. She is a beauty…chuffle!.. Right up their with Mr. Tibbs and right below me and Beau…heh!heh!

  78. OleyHowlers
    10:58 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Mom says it is not nice to tell a spooky story and run, but we are up so way past our bedtime…can’t keep our eyes open. Good night all.

  79. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:00 pm on October 1st, 2012

  82. Macy the Min-pin
    11:44 pm on October 1st, 2012

    OK Sam, I totally understand being pugged out since Belle is 3/4 pug and 3/4 chihuahua. I double checked my math and it is correct. The pug part is actually pretty ok, but boy when she is 3/4 chihuahua, nobody is safe. Just check out the stitches on mom’s hand. Well, check out where they were anyway. Grrrrrrrrr. I just realized that we do not have any chi wa was here. What’s up with that?

    Mom figured that after the big meeting with the big boss she was done forever with the school district, but…this afternoon the BB called and asked mom to sub at the school where our girls went. AND she gets her ID back that the evil one took from her. Gimme four!

  83. Gus & BooBear
    11:54 pm on October 1st, 2012

    Good for your mom, Macy!! Working in schools is no fun anymore. Our Mom did it for 3 years, back in the late 70’s, and she said “never again.” And she worked in a small district that didn’t put up with the bull****.

    OH, weird story!! Thank Dog, she did not head to the springhouse. Her hubby will just have to wait.

    Royals, that bear looks perfect in the produce dept!

    Good night, all.

  84. SnowBella
    12:05 am on October 2nd, 2012

    Howlers: I have no doubt that Sasha will be warmly welcomed by her husband and many other Plunderers when the time comes.

    Macy: Good news!
