Congratulations Maddie and Ranger!

The random number generator has spoken (in a heavy East German accent, circa 1956) and it said: “Maddie and Ranger.” Congratulations, Maddie and Ranger Chet’s Friends of the Month for September.

Maddie and Ranger will be in the special place where Rex has been, and as soon as we get a mailing address from Maddie and Ranger’s human companion (send to a signed and paw-printed copy of A Fistful of Collars will be on its way.

“Next month,” says Admin, “this could be you, when for the first time the prized will be a copy of The Sound and the Furry (coming Sept. 10)!  Just send in a photo to the Friends of Chet gallery. The random number generator does the rest!”

    Good morning! Mom tells us that, while it is Sunday, it is not yet Egg Day. Our heads are trying to get that one straight. meashka is sure Mom is pulling a fast one on us. Kat is unconcerned. Dima knows it is just that nothing has been re-stocked since the NC trip.

    Is Teddy really going to solo? Oh boy oh boy oh boy!

    I remember when Maddie and Ranger became FOC. It was mentioned that Maddie looked like Pearl. A Hearty Welcome to Maddie and Ranger!

    Whew, ever heard of a cold sauna? That’s what we have here. I think we’re in a cloud.

    Teddy, Ruff Rider Extraordinaire, I have full faith that you will be perfect in AC. (In your own unique puppy way.)

    People are still asleep here. Except Zoë. She’s been up since 5 and has now gone to church. I am sort of awake . .

    Visitors today!

    Wow! Two pairs for FOM. Maddie and Ranger here; Buster and Charlie on FB. Congrats to all. Now Meashka is trying to get a photo of Dima and her, and another of Kat and her. She is sure this pairing thing is the new FOM trend.

    Gooood morning, everyone! Welcome Maddie and Ranger. Boomy here, yellowish, but no rain yet. So exciting that the Rough Stuff will be pawing the controls solo for a bit. We wondered if FOC or Chetspeak would win. Now we know.

    Have a super sale-a-thon Sunday!

    Everyone is eager to shop the auction today for a chance to visit with our very own Teddy R.R., who, we are told, will be pawing the controls for the very first time! Will he be pawing solo or with a little help from Wookie & Dad? There’s only one way to find out.

    Rio, glad y ou are up so mom can tell you about your comment about her needing to get the Daddy Dawg ready to eat in AK. (here she comes) HA, HA, HA… in our 3 decades I have never seen the man pass up food in any size, shape or color! Rio, be advised that the Old Fart is a real consumer!

    Phew, we are glad she got that off her chest! She’s been frothing all morning :/

    Greetings! The FOM are very nice looking dogs!

    Wow, really, Teddy RR at AC? Cool!

  12. Masquers
    10:44 am on September 1st, 2013

    Riö? Is that your voice I just heard coming out of AC? There is no mistaking that distinctive wheeze; plus I saw a recently curled tail minus pink roller.

  13. Barb & Maggie
    10:48 am on September 1st, 2013

    Morning all. We are now having such major computer problems that we can’t even access our email. Must call someone out on Tuesday. Meanwhile we will limp along. Made a bid last night, but haven’t been able to get back on the auction site either. Grump!
    Have a good day everyone. Barb is heading out at 2:00 for Lyla’s 7th birthday party. Every 7 year old needs a $500 birthday party, complete with magician, popcorn wagon, snow cone machine, etc, etc. Right? Gah!

    Birthday!…I do believe I would like a $500.00 birthday…snort!

    Barb? Are these the family members who use other family members to babysit?

  17. O'Howlers
    11:08 am on September 1st, 2013

    We think any complaining about family or friends on a public blog is just asking for a quarrel. It is so darn easy for anyone to read it. Just sayin’.

    Hey everyone. Happy Sunday.
    Mama and the Storyteller are going visiting today.

    11:26 am on September 1st, 2013

    HOH – if we had a sign, it would have to say:
    Two Spoiled Men

  31. Barb & Maggie
    11:52 am on September 1st, 2013

    Good point Oleys, but Barb’s kids would not take time to jump on this here blog to see what she is saying.

    Rio, thank you for the update. This blog is the only thing that has worked all day!

    Congrats to the two new FOM. I wonder if looking like Pearl gave her an advantage.

    Made some homemade salsa to take today. It is pert neer world famous!

  32. Herd of Hounds
    11:56 am on September 1st, 2013

    Mom says we are sure about the old goat but are still looking for the “beautiful person”.

  33. Basil and Sage

    “Perfect Corgis”?????

  34. Herd of Hounds
    12:04 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Mom also says she hates trying to live within her means. We don’t think she is mean…not often, only when she won’t share ice cream 🙁

  38. Herd of Hounds
    12:40 pm on September 1st, 2013

    It is really quiet here…is Teddy Rough-Stuff really on at the AC?

  39. Barb & Maggie
    12:44 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Barb bought a hard copy book at a garage sale for 50 cents the other day. Thought it looked interesting – The Last Good Man by Kathleen Eagle. The author is married to a Lakota Sioux and writes books set in the west. Book cover says If you liked the Horse Whisperer you will love this book. The writing is good, but haven’t gotten too far into it and there has already been some erotica. Barb prefers books without too much explicit detail. In other words, she has not read Fifty Shades of Gray. Has anyone ready any of Eagle’s books?

  40. Herd of Hounds
    12:58 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Sorry, Barb, mom’s a G rated kind of gal.

  41. Barb & Maggie
    1:20 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Does anyone else remember marking the “good” pages of Peyton Place back in the day? That book was considered very risque when Barb was a teenager, so of course, all the girls had to read it. It would be tames by today’s standards.

    We agree with you, HOH, we here do not like extreme violence or X-rated material.

  42. Barb & Maggie
    1:22 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Rio, Our local Fresh Market has hatch chili dip on special this week. Will it be really hot? We know your friend is a big fan of hatch chili peppers, and I think Wookie’s Dad too. We have never tried them.

  43. O'Howlers
    1:32 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Mom didn’t like The Horse Whisperer.

  44. Siber-H
    1:40 pm on September 1st, 2013

    My mom didn’t like The Horse Whisperer either.

  45. Siber-H
    1:44 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Barb, If this is a chip dip with green chili in it, then it should not be hot.
    Not all green chili from Hatch is hot. A lot of mild green chili is eaten right here in NM.

  46. Barb & Maggie
    1:55 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Barb thought she would like the book, because it is set in the west, involves Native Americans, horses, and has a love story intertwined. But, maybe a waste of 50 cents!

    Melanie, yes this is the same relatives. Son evidently was quite mad about the $200 magacian, but DIL said too bad it was a done deal. I hope those little kiddies can sit thru an hour show!
    Oleys, just look at it this way, if we didn’t complain about our family, it would cut our posts in half, and we gotta vent to someone!

  47. c.hobbit
    1:57 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Barb & Maggie: you may be onto something regarding the new FOM. The facebookie FOM pair also are Pearl-like. If I get out the peroxide, Sadie might be next month’s FOM.

  48. Barb & Maggie
    1:58 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Siber, What exactly are Hatch chilis? Isn’t it a type of pepper, like jalapino or habanero (sp?)?

  49. Siber-H
    2:13 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Barb, Green Chili is a type of pepper like jalapinos.
    Hatch green chili is grown in Hatch, NM, and is considered the very best green chili.

  50. Macy the min-pin
    2:20 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Kind of like Vidalia onions?

  51. Barb & Maggie
    2:21 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Thank you Siber for explaining. Did not know of Hatch, N.M.

  52. Macy the min-pin
    2:21 pm on September 1st, 2013

    woo hoo we bid again, guess us pups are going to be eating the stale animal cookies for treats for a awhile.

  53. Siber-H
    2:23 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Macy, Yes

    Vidalia onions are delish.

    We DoNot like books that go into Romantic Detail. In our opinion it spoils a good story.

  55. O'Howlers
    2:32 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Bear,That is why Mom didn’t like Horse Whisperer. She thought it would be about the horse and his girl; instead it ended up being about the girl’s mom and her affair.

  56. O'Howlers
    2:37 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Gasp! We have had the rug pulled out from under us on almost all of the items we were bidding on!!!!

  57. Barb & Maggie
    2:46 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Bear and Oleys, Agree and agree.

    No the problem is not solved. This is the only site we have been able to use all day. Once we opened it successfully we were afraid to shut it down. When we go on Yahoo to read email these pop ups keep coming every 30 seconds or so, asking us to download different programs. Then when we hit no, it freezes the computer and we have to shut off the whole thing. Not enough techno knowledge to figure it out. It all started when we tried to download Quick Time and Flash Player.

    OK, signing off for now, may or may not be able to get back on later. Have a great afternoon everyone.

  58. Masquers
    2:55 pm on September 1st, 2013

  68. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    3:56 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Good morning all. Mom and dad spent a long day in two different emergency rooms yesterday. My boy Chad was having chest pains, and our local ER transported him down to the big city hospital by ambulance. Our first, and only thought was that his body was reacting negatively to his lifestyle, and we were right.

    In a way, it was sort of funny. The phone rings, and Chad said, “Mom, I think I’m having a heart attack!”.

    ” Really? Highly unlikely. What did you use last night? Really? Well, if you get out of breath when you pace, perhaps you should sit down.”

    “Mom, I’m really scared.”

    ” Son, email a photo to me. Hmmm, you look fine. Good color, you’re alert, call me later if you don’t feel better.”

    Mom was not feeling warm and fuzzy, not when it came to sacrificing a full day of a long weekend.

    The only good thing was that it gave him a real scare.

    At any rate, he’s fine, and it gave him a good scare.

  69. BearSpiritDog
    4:19 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Wolfie: Yikes! Even the young can have Strokes & Heart Attacks. Glad he is OK. Like you said…Maybe the scare did some good.
    We tend to take our Health for Granted.

    Wose: Like I said, I have enough rememory for the both of us, and don’t you forget it. Can I visit you this weekend? I will make sure you don’t float away.

    Wolfie: My Two-legged says your mama reminds her of my four-legged. Calm, cool, collected.

  78. SnowBella
    5:47 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Make that three sets of sticky, vanilla ice cream paws. It seems Pancho and Lefty made a visit to the Ruff Rider at AC.

    5:53 pm on September 1st, 2013

    6:28 pm on September 1st, 2013

  88. Melanie
    6:40 pm on September 1st, 2013

    My question is, “Why are you naming the puppy as the one who did the chewing? Seems to me there were two other sets of teeth there!”

  89. Melanie
    6:44 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Dog, these City Folk don’t know who to relax. They have tired out the Pack. First they did the walk / run with the Pack. The Pack came home to rest, and the City Folk went for a walk down near an old mill. They came home and did a lot of tummies. They walked the property. Did more tummies. Met with some GREAT visitors. Started dinner. Went for a walk over to the bridge. Ate dinner. Went down the street with Zoë and me on our walk.

    Cleaned the kitchen. Now they are out looking for mountain lions.

    The Pack are on their backs waiting for more tummies.

    Melanie, it is obvious that your visitors are not in Texas. It is 104 here. Mom and dad are getting ready to go to the Labor Day Blues Fest, but they have VIP tickets to the tent with the water sprayers. Dog bless the city councilman for the tickets. (especially the up-close parking)

    Melanie: It was a group effort. The Bid-O-Matic 3000, bless its rusty parts, started sparking. In an effort to fix it, we had to do a bit of, er, re-wiring. The green wire?—Delish. The red wire?—Panchos tail will never be the same.

    Rio: We did bring you a case of beer to cover the damages.

    Pancho!…burp!…I found that case. Thought at first is was one I missed last night…heh!…So nice recovery pal(s)….chuffle!

    Rio: We may have our talents, er, faults, but we’re not completely without manners.

    7:36 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Luna said we have to say faults because that is how some might view our talents.

    Our Lady is very excited today. She says next month she gets the chance to take her Plunderer Passport out for a test drive when she gets to meet BearSpiritDog and Katdog, Masquer’s mom. She is scheduled for a conference in their almost backyard. We hope she takes a page from our book and test drives like she stole it. Woohoo! She can’t wait for October.

    7:48 pm on September 1st, 2013

    HOH: We like to think we were brough up right. It’s hard not to have the basics down when Luna is around. She isn’t our mama, but she is the kennel matriarch. She has a firm, but loving paw. She let us know when we put a dew claw out of line.

  104. BearSpiritDog
    7:54 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Pancho&Lefty: Wooo&Hooo!!! I just Knew these Plunderer Passports would come in handy.

  105. Pancho & Lefty
    7:56 pm on September 1st, 2013

    BSD: We have been given strict instructions that we are not to taste test the passport. Our Lady better figure out a stamp quick like a little puggy.

    Riö: What?! It doesn’t come on until 9 pm here. They always show the previous episode a hour before.
    Rose: We cannot wait to meet her! Well…Mom can’t wait…she had better bring back pictures so we can see her too.
    I know she was very disappointed to have missed you and the Prof when you passed through Seattle on your way north last spring.
    And, we also missed the Howlers mom & pop when they were here in May and we were…someplace else.

  112. Riö - The Evil Pug

    September snuck up on me!

    See you later, Rex. Welcome to Ranger and Maddie, you lucky dogs.

    I have to catch up on the blog and on the auction, but when? All the company this weekend had kept me busy and now it’s almost time for Breaking Bad.

  115. Melanie

    Whoo Hoo! Plunderers Meeting!

    Pancho and Lefty, I figured you would have a good reason for chewing rewiring the wires.

    I have just finished watching “Waking Ned Devine”. A title to be taken in two ways. I have watched it a long time ago. The City Folk came home and got caught by the film. They are headed out again now that it is full dark.

    Riö, don’t worry. They are NOT getting out of the car.

    Macy the MinPin . . YIKES!

  116. Tenzing
    8:49 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Wose: You are making my Lady blush. From the moment we’ve met, I’ve thought she is the most wonderful thing since raw meat. If I didn’t think as much, I wouldn’t have marked her as my own.

    Masquers: My Lady already knows to take pictures.

    HRH B: TY for the info on the BBCA series Broadstreet this afternoon, Mom hadn’t seen it (since the Old Fart controls the TV @ night) but she really enjoyed it . Again “Silk” she will try again but thinks it is too flawed to redeem.

    And on that note…nighty night.

  120. Riö - The Evil Pug

    9:34 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Back nome. After 6 hours with 15 7-year olds, Barb is pooped. The magician was actually quite entertaining. All children consumed mountains of sugar, so glad we don’t have to deal with them tonight.

    Rain held off till the party ended. One family brought their Cavilier King Charles Spaniel, who was a bit neurotic. She hunted flies and bees for hours on the deck, paying no attention to any of the 2 leggeds who were calling to her. Are they usually like this? She was a little goofy but cute.

    We think you are right about the virus. Will call out the computer guy or take it in to their shop ASAP.

  122. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:39 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Barb!…Your bid is hanging in there, but I could up it for you just to be safe…snort!…What do you say?…heh!

    10:19 pm on September 1st, 2013

    They are back from the sweat fest, it was 102 at 7 pm. BUT, there was free beer, margaritas, and food, plus music and shopping. (well, more like looking).

    I had a very scary incident tonight. While eating my dinner, I got choked. I upchucked but I was still choked. I started rolling around and flopping and…well, things got messy. Mom was yelling for dad, but by the time he got there I was breathing ok. The bad part was, we had super special dinner tonight and someone else ate mine while I was dying. How rude!!

  135. Basil and Sage
    10:23 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Checking in before checking out.
    BSD and Masquers – WOOO and HOOOOO!
    Barb – we have heard that Cavs can be like that. Not like most spaniels.
    And 15 seven year olds? Yee gawd

    Rio and Teddy – thanks again for all your work at AC.

    Lots of stuff done today from visiting, to list making ( for the beach) to vacuuming the house to laundry to shopping to,,,,,
    So we have got to say g’night.

  136. Tenzing
    10:24 pm on September 1st, 2013

    BooBear: Thanks for clearing that up. Math has never been a strength of mine. Eating, running, being in the moment—I’ve mastered the all, but not math.

    Macy: Yeep! I am glad to hear you are alright. How scary. There is room enough under the Quilt if you need to lay your head and rest. Have I mentioned I make a great pillow. We don’t have a special dinner, but we do have snacks.

  137. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:25 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Macy!…Whoa!…It’s good you can still type..sniff!…And are breathing…wow!…I bet you are hungry.

  138. Basil and Sage
    10:27 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Ooo Macy – just read about your scare.
    Do you mean that after all that your folks left you for a music thingie? Boy, you are just surrounded by rudeness, poor little doggie.
    We feel your pain. We live with Corgis for Pete’s sake.

    Tenzing . . Mac has a very different view of what marking is . .

    Yawning big time time here. City Folk are back. I will find out tomorrow how their quest went.

    Miss Macy, glad to her you are okay ( besides being a tad hungry). Sounds like your parental units had a good time.

    Yawning again.


  145. Macy the min-pin
    10:57 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Mom wanted me to assure everyone that she left a private nurse behind for me. Ok, so it was just our girl Angie who lives here anyway. Mom says that it is funny you mentioned the heimlich because that is exactly what she was trying to figure out how to do when I started breathing ok. I think she might have flopped me over a couple of times in her hysteria. Now that the kennelled ones have gone to bed, mom is going to fix me a tasty bowl of…dry kibble, gah. That just ain’t right.

  146. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:59 pm on September 1st, 2013

    Macy!…I’ve long believed one could choke to death on dry kibble…sniff!…Just saying – be careful!

    1:22 am on September 2nd, 2013

    Oh, Mr. Redbone, that is mighty sweet of you, but mom says I don’t chew well enough, so I can only have chopped beef. But if you drop by after she is in bed, I won’t tell.
