    My Librarian calls Fynn “cute.” He looks a little friendlier than some dogs. Congratulations to him!

    Last copy seen here of TDWKTM was on its way to the Homebound Bus and someone who couldn’t leave their home to get to the library – sure to cheer them up.

    Franklin and Mac are also on the front page this morning. Would a Newf let me ride on their back? They look horse-sized to me.

    Well, Fynn looks like he has his book bag and leash and is ready to go! Congratulations. (Cheer up Mollypop and Sam. Next month perhaps….)

    Good morning all.

    Fynn is very cute. So is Abbie, on FB.

    Mon and dad saw Dolphin Tale last night. They really liked it and now wants to adopt some dolphins. I guess that we would have to move to some warm water paradise first, but that is okay with me.

    I wanted to win so I could lord it over Sam. Mom says that’s not nice, but that’s what I wanted to do.

    Such noblesse oblige . . . (and some sore losers) 🙂

    As the Blog Baker it would be great to know when birthdays are happening. Before I read it the next day. Snicker. Happy Late Birthday, Nana!

    Umm. I’m a tad busy today doing things to get ready. I’m sorry about the cake 🙁

    Need to print out some more pictures. BBL

    That Fynn is a fine lookin, big ole dawg. Not as handsome as certain hound types and he don’t hold a candle to my little sugardoodle Macy, but all in all a pretty fair representative of the nation within

    CHarris – why, thank you ma’am. I’m mighty fond of Southern belles myself, even if’n they live in the wilds of the North Pole. (whatever are you thinking’ gal? Get yourself back down to magnolia country before you turn into a Popsicle!)

    Miz MollyPop – now that ain’t nice, tryin to make sweet little Sam jealous. It’s purty funny, but it ain’t nice.

    Miz Samantha – you and Brewski are just right gracious.

    Sorry to start out the day like this but we need everyone’s good thoughts and prayers. #2 Son was admitted to the hospital last night with acute pancreatitis. Nana is a wreak waiting for news.

  12. B.Stover
    10:47 am on October 1st, 2011

    Nana: I’m thinking of you and hope everything goes well with son #2.

    Bear, Tell Nana that we are all with her. Healing thoughts and prayers going out for yur family. Please keep us posted.

    Congratulations Fynn! You look like a really nice guy, and my mom thinks you are cute.

    12:48 pm on October 1st, 2011

    BearSpiritDog: My prayers and healthy thoughts are being sent to Nana’a son.

    Been nice knowing Brewski (hi Samantha) and now welcome to Fynn. I think Fynn works in a bookstore – lucky dog.

    I slept in…I have to get some coffee and google Detroit Tigers.

  16. Tyb
    12:49 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Congratulations, Flynn. My dad and I think you’re really handsome and we’ll be glad to see you every day at the top of the page when we log on. It looks as though you’re in a classroom or a library. Might you be a reading therapy dog?

    Excitement growing here! Zoë and McKey got stuck with the Pack up at the Camp! We’re hoping all bad car karma is now out of the way!

    1:01 pm on October 1st, 2011

    I guess I should have checked you out among Chet’s friends before I wrote the previous note. I see that you work in a bookstore. That has to be one of the best places in the world to work. I enlarged your photo which makes you look like a really young guy.
    I’m attaching a picture of me which shows me reading one of my favorite books,
    Living the Good Life by Blou. I may offer a copy for sale when we get that project going. This picture hangs in the children’s section of several libraries, in reading
    class rooms, and in literacy centers.

    At the top of our page today was Scooter. What kind of cruel person would submit a picture of a guy wearing the cone of shame? *shudder*

    Congrats Flynn, love the picuture.

    I had to go to the V E T yesterday with a pesky personal problem (PPP) and Richard, the nice tech, turned on me. First he followed me around with a cup on a stick while I tried to do my business. Then he TRIMMED MY NAILS. I totally did not see that coming. There is a different nasty place that usually does that. Thanks for nothing Richard!

    Warm thoughts your way Nana. Not happy birthday.

    Plans!…. Today is rushing by far too fast for the likes of me…snort!… This morning my friend went to work-out forever and ever and now she is back and gathering her project stuff together to take upstairs to work on…sniff!…There is more natural light upstairs and she is in the mood to put all the pieces she made all week long together…chuffle!

    First!…We had to find out what time the Tigers and Yankees game is on …snort!… Luckily it is supposed to start at 6:30 our time…heh!… This will work out perfect because she has a wedding to go to this afternoon and she says she will be home in time to watch the game with me…snorkel! ….Her Renters are getting married so she does not feel obligated to stay very long at the reception….heh!

    Spencer!….OH we can’t wait for this evening when the Montegue Gang meets Spencer and Gang…heh!….I hope no fights break out…sniff!

    I’m going to miss Brewski’s picture, but Fynn is a handsome fellow.

    Nana: No need to ask twice. Thoughts and prayers of healing for Son #2 and comfort for you.

    One plus forty-eight is the loneliest number—Tonight I take AJ to the airport. He is headed to the lower 48 for a week for work. Grump!

  22. alice m. johnson
    2:21 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Nana, best good thoughts going your way. I hope #2 son feels better soon.

    Melanie, Gosh I hope it wasn’t the rental car that got stuck. You need that car for the trip to see Spence! Tell that silly YSAS to stop immediately.

    TYB you look great in glasses. Staff has to wear them also.

    I like the look of Fynn. I do miss Brewski though. I hope Samantha sticks around. She seemed to understand our sort of ‘humor’.

    Trying to keep from going to estate sales today. I have NO PLACE to put new (old) sewing machines!

  23. Melanie
    2:47 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Alice, the Pack would not fit in the rental car.
    Are you going to buy an old estate?

    We will be leaving SOON! Probably not back until very late. And tomorrow early I have to take YSAS to the train station.

    I will make my report with pictures as soon as I possibly can!


  24. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:53 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Melanie!…Hope you guys arrive safe and sound!…snort!…Don’t forget the photo’s and your list of questions….sniff!…I think we covered the camera last night…heh!

    Rebeccer!…If I would have known you were going to be all alone this coming week I could have gotten Wookie to pick me up in the Wookiemobile and drop me off at your place…wuffle!… I could have been your personal body guard guy till the Giant gets home…heh!

  25. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:56 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Alert!…Playoff game is on – Snakes vs Brewskies!…heh!…Game is tied a Zero…sniff! …We are rooting for the Snakes this time…wooooooo!

  26. B.Stover
    2:56 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Staff: You’re making me laugh….trying to keep from going to estate sales. (I have no place to put any more books but that never stops me I’m afraid.)

    Melanie et al are almost on their way! It’s a beautiful day here. Hope it’s nice in Vermont as well.

  27. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:57 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Project!…Alert! She figured out how to make leaves a different way!….heh!…She is pretty pysched about this, so I had to put up a special report….grunt!

  28. Snowhook Bella
    3:06 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Rio: There is still time for you and the Wookster to head north to Alaska provided that Wookie has a led paw and doesn’t mind living on just the other side of the law. The Giant has reminded me to make sure and lock the doors while he is gone three times already—I’d lay money down that I’ll hear the phrase at least five more times before he boards the plane.

  29. Siber-H
    3:13 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Thanks for the alert, Rio, because my newspaper got the time wrong.

    Melanie is OFF!! WOO WOO

  30. B.Stover
    3:44 pm on October 1st, 2011

    I just talked to my brother and sister-in-law. My brother is in the hospital having tests done. He may have bleeding in his bowels. They’re going to call me back after the next test. I may be flying to North Vegas.

  31. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    3:48 pm on October 1st, 2011

    I definitely have a lead paw. The question is whether I can the Wookiemobile gassed up. Rio, are you able to leave your back yard these days? Wookie

  32. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:57 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Bleeding!… ouch!…That sounds like a painful place to be bleeding…sniff!…I sure hope he is okay Stover. Too many relatives of the Plunderers are having major medical problems lately…sniff!…I hope Dan The Man is feeling tip-top today when he meets Spencer!…chuffle!

    Crap!…The Brewers took the first game away from the Snakes…snort!…With that my friend has to put away her paper and go get cleaned up for the wedding….grunt!…She says she may be down here again with me before leaving….chorkle!…I’m going to continue watching tv and snoozing….yawn!

    Wookie!… I was just trying to make Rebeccer feel better…sniff! …I can’t leave my yard now because someone has to watch over her mother tonight, plus there is the Tigers and Yankees game…snort!…I don’t think Rebeccers tv gets the game. What a shame that is…huffle!

  33. Tupper and Gilly
    4:58 pm on October 1st, 2011

    My gracious – so much going on when we aren’t looking.

    Nana – we will be thinking good thoughts. Glad your #2 son was smart enough to go to the hospital. Pancreatitis really hurts, but with medical care it is very curable.

    Melanie – sob, sob. We wish we were with you in the rental car. Corgis don’t take up nearly as much room as the Pack, but Mama says if she couldn’t go, neither could we. Poo!

    Rio – looking forward to seeing the new leaves. We still think youf friend should do a quilled pug….should be easy enough – just tell her to start with your curly little tail.

    Bee – sending the best thoughts for your brother. We would love for you to be able to go for a visit to North Vegas, but not for a medical emergency – just for a visit visit.

    Basil and Sage are pouting all over the place because they aren’t FOM. Too dam bad, we say. We would rather look at Fynn than their wrotten kat pusses.

    Macy – never turn your back on a vet tech – those guys are tricky.

    Redbone Hound – “sugardoodle”????

    And last but not least before we get back to work –
    Rebecca – LOCK THE DOOR!!

  34. Snowhook Bella
    5:16 pm on October 1st, 2011

    T&G: What are you trying to say? 🙂

    B Stover: Just as with Nana, sending thoughts and prayers for your brother.

    Rio: I guess I’ll put the gold plated dog dish away that is only brought out for special guests such as yourself.

  35. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:32 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Gold!….Now Rebeccer, don’t be too hasty putting that special dish away….snort!…Maybe we can work out something…sniff!…But first, do you or do you not get the baseball play-off games??….gruffle!

  36. Siber-H
    5:38 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Stover, Our thoughts are with you and your brother also.
    I hope you are feeling better?

  37. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:58 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Wedding!… Well, now she is getting finalized for the wedding… snuff!…What a waste of time if you ask me…grunt!… The Phillies and the Cardinals are playing. She said she would leave the game on for me while she is gone…snorkel!…Now that’s what friends are for….heh!

    Melanie!…In just one short hour Melanie and Company will be listening to Spencer tell all his stories and then they will finally get to meet him and hopefully take some photos!…heh!…I will be watching the clock and thinking of all of those guys tonight!…Wooooooo!

  38. Rose
    6:10 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Good late afternoon all!

    Nana and B: Well wishes and prayers being sent your way!

    Melanie: Hope the book signing was fun!

    Woke up very late this morning. Per my doctor’s instructions, I took more of my sleeping medication, and I could just about drag myself out of bed. Still (sneeze) sneezing, coughing, and runny nose going on. Good thing I didn’t hang in for the Yankee game last night.

    B: Are you back to feeling your tip-top self?

    Rio: It would be kind of cool if your friend did a twisting, twirly project of you.

    T&G: Thinking of you today. In the bookstore this afternoon, I saw a 2012 calendar dedicated to corgis…Didn’t see your picture in it though.

    Tyb: you look vey handsomein your glasses

    Hey, Fynn…Congartulatons on your FOM win!

  39. Rose
    6:13 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Fynn, that was congratulations! I’m still kind of groggy.

  40. BearSpiritDog
    6:33 pm on October 1st, 2011

    B: We add our healing prayes for your brother. We believe the Plunderers add a special ingredient to the mix.

  41. Siber-H
    7:10 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Rose, I was thinking about you today so I’m glad you checked in with us.

  42. OleyHowlers
    7:17 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Hello all,
    We are so sorry to hear about Bear’s #2 son and Stover’s brother’s health issues. Mom will pray and we will keep our paws crossed for both.
    We like the look of Flynn as well as his name. Congratulations!
    Mom just got an iPaw and she is typing slow.
    Bear, White Wings is on it’s way. We loved the story. Mom mailed it special media mail, so it may take a week to get to you.

    GO PHILLIES !!!!!!!!

  43. Rose
    7:18 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Siber-H: Thanks! It means a lot to me.

  44. OleyHowlers
    7:20 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Rose, we hope you get feeling better soon too.

  45. B.Stover
    7:28 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Thank you all. My brother’s test is done but he may have another. I’m waiting for a call.

    I’m feeling better but not tip top yet.

    Congrats on the iPad Howlers.

    Rose: Get better.

    Bear: How is #2 son doing?

  46. Rose
    7:45 pm on October 1st, 2011

    OHs: Thanks. I think this was something the Prof passed on to me. We call it “the beginning of the semester” cold.

    B: Keeping my fingers crossed for your brother. Maybe you have “the beginning of the semester cold” too.

    Bear: My prayers are being sent for #2 son.

    Masquers: How was your mom’s birthday?

    Belle: Make sure you and the pack take good care of Rebecca while AJ is away!

  47. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    7:46 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Happy October, all.

    I hope that Melanie, et al are having fun with SPQA. I hope e recognizes them.
    What if a group of other fans have Newf name badges too?

    Naw. Not a chance.

    I hope.

    I hope everyone’s relatives are felling better soon.

  48. Macy the Min-pin
    8:01 pm on October 1st, 2011

    I have to ask a rather personal question. (this is for the nation only, and 2 legged with this problem, keep it to yourself) We went to the DOG PARK today. When we got there someone noticed that I was drooling like a Newfie. The words “mad dog” were used, but I was as happy as could be. Has this ever happened to you. Mom, the big panic-er, called the emergency vet, who said to watch if I did anything strange. Ex-cuse me? Walk on 2 legs, dance with lamp shade? I did not feel any strangeness coming on, so I just continued my stately stroll in the park. (all sorts of unseemly fetching going on).

    There is a fence between the “little dogs” and the “big dogs”. First thing, Holly goes to the fence and issues a race challenge. That little chug is FAST. Every time, it was a dead heat. At one time I do believe that her back half was attempting to pass the front.

    Of COURSE Sugardoodles!! (dainty lick to Mr. R H.)

  49. Snowhook Bella
    8:24 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Rose: If by taking care of me, you mean the Belle Starr got so excited she expelled her breakfast at my feet then she is doing a fine job. A fine job, indeed. I hope you feel better.

    Rio: We don’t get the fancy sport channels at the kennel, but maybe we could find the baseball games on the internet. I hope our limited television stations aren’t a deal breaker for your trip north to Alaska in March.

  50. Siber-H
    8:25 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Macy, most dogs who normally don’t drool will under certain circumstances drool…like a special scent can bring it on, especially some place like a dog park.
    As long as the dog doesn’t continue to do it everything should be fine.
    Your mom is a good mom cause she called the vet.
    Unless you are a Newf, drooling can mean things like a rotten tooth, upset tummy, or car sickness, but I think yours was brought on by something at the dog park.
    Yes, I have done it at the dog park, but we can’t remember what the circumstances were.
    If I were doing it at home for any length of time, mom would be calling the vet.

  51. Tupper and Gilly
    8:30 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Ahem – your attention please. We have an announcement to make….

    Melanie and her 2 Legged Pack have just checked in. They had a FABULOUS time. They met both Peter AND Spence (not sure if Admin was there or not – he might have still been pouting in a corner over the demise of some guys who wear colorful footwear.
    They also met Diane, who is married to one of those guys, we can never remember which one. Melanie said she is a lovely lady.

    Melanie took lots of pictures AND she BROUGHT lots of pictures – the ones of Spence and Audrey, which he is going to sign and send back to Melanie. She also took notes on his questions and answers so she can give a big report on the trip to all of us.

    They are back in the car and heading for home. Its a long trip, so she hopes to snooze while YSAS drives. And she says she will not be on the blog tonight – but promises to check in tomorrow sometime in the afternoon to tell us all about it.

    We can’t wait!!!

  52. Siber-H
    8:31 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Rebecca, It won’t be baseball season when Rio is visiting so he won’t be having any withdrawal. I think he just asked you that question because he is trying to make a baseball fan out of you.

    tee hee We did get Stover to watch the World Series last year. That was fun.

  53. Siber-H
    8:37 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Thanks T&G! WOO WOO
    We can’t wait either, but we want Melanie to relax first.

  54. OleyHowlers
    9:11 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Thanks for the Melanie update, T&G. How exciting! Weare twirling!

  55. Snowhook Bella
    9:12 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Siber-H: I don’t know that I’ll ever become a big baseball fan, but I am a fan of certain baseball fans. Go teams named after canines and even felines!

    T&G: Thanks for the update on the update. Maybe for security reasons, the three of them, SQ, PA and Admin don’t travel together.

  56. OleyHowlers
    9:12 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Thanks for the Melanie update, T&G. How exciting! We are twirling!

    Howlers: How is Sheik?

  58. OleyHowlers
    9:46 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Well what do you know…we managed to sandwich Bella in a Double Dawson.

    Shiek is taking a long time to heal.

  59. dawson
    10:20 pm on October 1st, 2011

    I miss doing the double dawsons.
    I went outside to pick some zucchini and a grand slam happens. Wrong team hit it.

  60. Macy the Min-pin
    10:41 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Rangers!! Yes!!!!!

  61. alice m. johnson
    10:43 pm on October 1st, 2011

    I have ascended from the basement viewing and clothes washing area. I will not watch anymore tonight. The grand slam took the heart out of me. Sob…sob…

    I believe it is all the fault of the zucchini picker. If she had stayed inside keeping on eye on her Tigers we would not be in this pickle.

    so there

  62. Siber-H
    10:47 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Rangers Won!! WOO WOO

    I somehow watched both baseball games…very tiring.
    Before those games, I watched Halliday pitch. We love that guy. Cliff Lee tomorrow, Fellow Sibers.

    Night All

  63. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:49 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Gruffle!… Well, my friend out and out lied to me…snort!…She said she would be back here to watch the game with me 2 hours ago…grunt!…Now she finally shows up and says “What’s the Score?”…grump!…Well, I don’t know because I’ve been sleeping..sniff!…Now that she is finally here we can watch the Tigers and Yankees game…wooooo!… On our TV it says the game is LIVE and it is game #1…heh!…So did they play game number 2 and now they are playing #1??….wuffle!…Anyways, we are sitting here watching it “live”…heh!

  64. Siber-H
    10:52 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Rio, It is game #1. The Yankee game started tonight where it left off last night. They haven’t played game #2 yet. You really are watching it “live”

    night again

  65. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:01 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Bizarre!…grump!…What timing I ask?…sniff!…She parties and dances all night and comes home just in time to watch the continuance of game number 1…wuffle!…Who does that?…sniff! …Oh, but get this, she said they ran out of food when her table finally got called to go to the buffet table…heh!…So all she got to eat at the wedding was some baked beans and an small piece of corn on the cob …chorkle!…Thank goodness she didn’t hardly eat all day long because she thought she would be eating a lot at the wedding…snuff!…So her diet plan is safe with having eaten NOTHING practically all day long …chorkle!…Now she knows what I feel like All The Damned Time…sniff!

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:08 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Alone!… Rebeccer will be all alone tonight…sniff!…She is 3 hours behind me in time, so it is only a little after 6:00pm tonight her time…chuffle!…She is probably still doing chores and saying Hi to all the guys out there in the yard….wuffle!… I hope she locks her Doors and her Windows…sniff!

  67. dawson
    11:14 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Ha! The former Twinkie got a base hit off the pitcher’s bum. That’ll teach him. We just need about a dozen more of those and this game’ll be in the bag.

  68. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:18 pm on October 1st, 2011

    Base-hit!…Are you watching the same game I am Dawson?…snort!…The score is 9 ta 1 Yankees…yawn!…My friend is motioning for me to turn off the computer because she wants to go to bed….grump!
