Congratulations, Quito!

The random number generator, still smoking even though it’s been turned off for hours, has spoken. Here is Quito, July’s Friend of the Month! Quito will appear in the special place over on the right for the whole of July (where Babe spent June), and as soon as Quito’s human companion sends a postal address to, a signed copy of The Dog Who Knew Too Much will be on its way. In August, this could be you! All you have to do is upload a photo to the Friends of Chet gallery. State of the art technology does the rest.

Welcome Chet (!) the hole digger.

Today at 10 AM, Falmouth Academy, Falmouth MA – Spencer Quinn signing at the canine cardio walk/run.

    Still not Rio,
    I suppose we will have to live with his grunting all day now…

    Good Morning! Our Pack is reunited. That young upstart Kat came back home all full of herself, but Meashka cut her back down to size when she tried to mess with the “bully stick” bone. Heh heh
    Spence is doing a signing today! In Massachusetts!!! Now why didn’t those guys stay up there for that. We were managing the homefromt and taking care of Pop just fine.
    Congratulations to Quito and Cero. Sorry Rio.

    Dawson, type in and put in out zip code in Mpls (55410) and see what lovely weather you are missing. Heh. I have all 3 AC going although I didn’t tell Dad when I turned the one in his bedroom on.
    I am planning on staying inside all day. It isn’t too bad inside. The turtleman and his wife have a RACE today…jeez.

    Quito! Cool name. Looks like she read herself to sleep.

    Hmm, we live on the west side of MA and Spencer lives on the Cape. It is summer. There are only two roads onto the Cape. Traffic is carpola there!

    I looked at Zoë this morning and said in a serious tone . . “If I ever try to take the tops of the pool pump or filter, you tell me ‘Melanie, use the snigglefrizing mallet.'”

    Yup strained my back! At least it was after everyone had left!

    Going to rest today.

    Staff, Are turtle man and wife RUNNING? Does he go slower than she does?

    My Mechanical Engineer Nephew has been racing but in kayaks.

    Melanie, poor back. Are you icing it?
    Mom decided it is much too hot to ride horses in that Jeopardy Ride. So we are all relaxing on the porch with coffee, tea, and newspaper. Kat is resting her eyes by their side.
    Youse should have seen the happy reunion last night, especially when Kat threw herself into Pop’s arms, yipping/yarking like crazy. Mom was hurt because we didn’t fuss over her when she got out of the car; we just wanted Kat out. We <3 our Kat.

    Yes, they are running. The turtleman was faster than his wife for many years but I do remember she beat him in a Marathon about 5 years ago and he talks about it still.
    He is called the turtleman because he has had turtles as pets for over 40 years. Make that 50…ouch. I know he had a box turtle when we moved up here from Indiana in 1961.

    The Wandering Plunderers have returned home.
    The only glitch in our morning being You Know Who not sitting in the Place of Honor Up Top.
    Sorry Rio.

    Happy Birthday to Wolfie’s Mom!

    I have finally caught up on the blog. I had no wifi for my iPaw so I had to wait until I got back to Sam’s, where I am now. I will say lots more later and pictures to come, but Sam’s Mom has some things she’s making me help her with. Can’t she see I’m resting?

    Hey everyone – so, our house is back to “normal” with just us and the Wrotten Kats. No more company…..sigh.
    That was just the most fun we have had in a long time. But now it’s kinda sad. We want MPM and OHM to live so much closer so we can do this all the time.

    Wanna hear something funny? MPM asked our Mama if she ever heard from the CL and what was happening in CLL. Mama told her that she had kept her distance, and her boundries, and hadn’t set foot back in there, nor had she heard from CL.

    The next day, after bringing Rebecca to the airport, they stopped at Costco for a minute. Got out of the car, walked thru the door and ran face to face into CL!

    When Mama left in Jannuary, CL was going to tell the other employees the following week that the place was for sale. Then she was going to wait a week or two to tell the members. So, in a five minute conversation, Mama found out that:
    ~CL hasn’t told the members yet (tho it is on the main company web site, for anyone to see if they look)
    ~CL has not hired anyone to take Mama’s hours – everyone is still “filling in”
    ~CL still hasn’t sent the manager for a training certificate that she was supposed to get last February, and HAS to have before September (its a 3 week course)
    ~CL has a new grandchild that requires some of her time, in addition to the one she babysits 3 days a week.
    ~etc. etc etc

    MAma walked away, and told Dad that this is exactly why she doesn’t even go to CLL to visit! The chaos that constantly surrounds CL is toxic!

    But today, Dad is off to a Strawberry Ceremonial Gathering at a friend’s reservation, so he will come home happy. And Gramp is seeing friends that he likes, so he will come home happy. And we have Mama all to ourselves and she is taking the day OFF so we are happy. Its just Mama who seems just a little sad today.

    Good Morning All!

    Congratulations, Quito on being the new FOM!

    Rio, lo siento, amigo.

    Kat, I loved your play-by-play of your trip to see Rebecca. Seems like you are a rising star too!

    Melanie, please rest and take care of your back!

    MPM, you catch up on your rest, but can’t wait to see pictures!

    Wolfie: Happy Birthday to your mom! Hugs and kisses to her, and lots of tummies for you too!

  15. Rose

    Royal Mum, I don’t know if it will help, but I am sending you big hugs! Please don’t be sad.

    Sasha and the very lovely redhead, Kat up top!

    11:22 am on July 1st, 2012

    I have a collar! I never ever had one before. Molly’s Mom took a picture of me looking so beautiful in this collar. It makes a great tinkling sound when I move. I’m strutting around and showing it off. I think I’m big stuff!

  18. Melanie
    11:26 am on July 1st, 2012

    After Kat left, Patsy got her chewie, demanded to be let into our room, jumped on the bed, and with chewie in mouth slept for 3 hours!

    We haven’t had a puppy around here for a few years. Kat wore her out!

    Had plans to water the gardens this morning, but life interrupted and I have an 30 minutes to rest before friends of Dan and Zoë come by for a visit.

    OH! As I was going to bed last night, YSAS asked if I would fix up a website, get the domain for their series. I finished the “under construction” page today.

    11:27 am on July 1st, 2012

    Sammy, bling for a Princess! Work it, girlfriend!

    It is Old-Timers today at Yankee Stadium! WoooooHoooo! I love baseball!

    Um, B, what is today’s pie?

  20. OleyHowlers
    11:28 am on July 1st, 2012

    Sam, Meashka wishes you would have hidden your back end as well as your front end in Aunt Mollys Mom’s bag. Oh what fun we could have had! Maybe next time…heck you even have a bell now so you wouldn’t get lost in the hotel.

  21. Rose

    For all youse wondering about Kat’s play-by-play that Rose read…we allowed Kat to post on the blog one last time, very late last night. Now, we have taken back control of the iPaw. She really has no idea of what is important and what is not important when she posts.

  23. B.Stover
    11:45 am on July 1st, 2012

    Melanie: They don’t look like “munchies” as I pictured it in my mind. Interesting perspective.

    Rose: The pie today is butterscotch cream.

    I’d like to see Sam’s collar.

  24. Tupper and Gilly
    11:54 am on July 1st, 2012

    Bee – butterscotch is one of Mama’s favorites, so….”as the player rounds third, he’s gotta get his motor on. The ball is coming in from right field – the crowd is going wild – he dives, he slides – and heeeeeeeee’s……..SAFE!!!!! Home Run!!!”
    We’ll have whipped cream on ours please….tee hee

    Hey Little Kat – you were right in the first place – we DON’T have any tails. Just wiggly butts. Rebecca says there is no “off” switch for Gilly’s. Our legs are just exactly the right length!

    Rose – MAma says thanks for the hugs. They do help.

  25. B.Stover
    11:57 am on July 1st, 2012

    T&G: I’m baking your mom her own butterscotch pie. I always put whipped cream on top….and I use whipping cream whipped with sugar.

  26. B.Stover
    11:59 am on July 1st, 2012

    Forgot: Vanilla along with sugar in the whipping cream.

    Happy July everybody, and Alles Gute zum Geburtstag to Wolfie’s mom.

  28. Mollypop's Mom
    12:14 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Sam really does love her collar. The tinkling sound is a bell because it’s a cat collar. Don’t tell her. I will post pictures when I get back to my computer late tomorrow. They may have to wait until Tuesday.

  29. Siber-H
    12:19 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Butterscotch pie is mom’s most very favorite pie.

    Is Wolfie’s mom German? I am only asking because I sure could use someone to sob along with me that Germany lost that soccer game in the Euro Cup Semi Finals last Friday.

  30. Tupper and Gilly
    12:19 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Ooooo – thanks Bee. That ought to make her smile!

    Wolfie’s Mom – please write down the answers to the following questions

    1.What is the shortened, more familiar, five letter name for
    “Hippopotamus amphibius”?
    2. What kind of creature is a canary?
    3. Fill in the blank “___light Savings Time”
    4. What is 984 divided by 492?
    5. What letter do the following have in common?
    _CLA _Conn _SC _Mass NY_

    Your answers are our wish! With love!

  31. B.Stover
    12:31 pm on July 1st, 2012

    SH: LOL! I’m baking a butterscotch pie for your mom also.

    Good grief. What are the answers to the five questions?

    1:37 pm on July 1st, 2012

    T&G, that is a very clever way to say you-know-what.
    Phillies are ahead 1-0 in the bottom of the 2nd. We need an extra large slice of pie. There are 4 of us you know. (whispering) Mom told us to say that.

    I didn’t even know that butterscotch pie existed!

    Our company has left again. Very nice time. Hadn’t seen them for 12 years.

    Maybe I’ll take that nap now. First nap was interrupted to pick up Mattie from the groomer.

    Happy Birthday to Wölfie’s Mom!!

  44. OleyHowlers
    3:44 pm on July 1st, 2012

    What a terrific cake. Kat asked us to add to her play-by-play. She completely forgot to tell you that she actually met Dan and Zoe! And they were exactly as she thought they would be. She said she would have known Zoe even if she had just bumped into her all alone on a busy street. What a warm, lovely couple they were. Dan loved it when Mom told him how much she loved White Wing.
    Speaking of WW, is that book still winging it’s way around the country, or is it back home with Dawson?

  45. B.Stover
    3:51 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Butterscotch pie is made with homemade pudding and it’s very nice. I have the receipt if anyone wants it.

  46. Siber-H
    3:56 pm on July 1st, 2012

    uh, Stover, Could you just ship a butterscoth pie to me? I’ll send you the money for shipping and packing.

  47. BearSpiritDog
    4:01 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Gah. I have my Dunce Cap on.
    Tupper&Gilly your clever B-Day message went right by me.

    B: Something tells me you are going to be slaving over a hot stove today. Your pie du jour is very popular.
    And, yes we would like the “receipt”. snicker

  48. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:03 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Wings!…We’ve got White Wings and we’ve also go Fairy Wings…heh!heh!…These little Fairies are starting to look sort of like miniture little people. The question is, should she put arms and legs on them or just leave them alone with their little Wings?…grunt!

    Happy Birthday, Wolfie’s Mom! Are you having toffee to celebrate?

  50. c.hobbit-harris
    4:30 pm on July 1st, 2012

    B: can you post the recipe on Dishlickers? I am not eating desserts these days but I still like to “absorb” the recipes. I love pouring through cookbooks and watch a lot of the cooking shows on tv but I have never been much of a cook myself. Odd.

    Tomorrow I am supposed to go pick up my pregnant husky. It will be a 15-hour day. My goal today is to vacuum all of my dogs’ hair from the back of the car; otherwise everything is ready.

  51. B.Stover
    4:41 pm on July 1st, 2012

    SH: It will have to be shipped somehow using refrigeration.

    Yes, I’ll post the recipe on Dishlicker’s….tomorrow. It’s not difficult to make.

    Rio: Peter Pan’s Tinkerbell has arms and legs.

    4:51 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Howdy do Miz Bee – now y’all are talkin’ mah language! We call the list of ingredients and the instructions “receipts” down here too. Ifn y’all go to a church supper an ask the ladies fer their “recipes”, they will think you’re just a high falutin’ show-off.

  53. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    4:53 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes! I figured out the answers to the quiz before mom did. Heh! And thank you, Melanie for the icake. We love it!

    Mom bought a “new” hutch and dining room table. Then she found a solid oak table in the classifieds that she liked better. ($100!) It needs some stabilizing, but once that happens, dad is going to put together moms new John Flynn quilting frame. Well, it isn’t really new, mom bought it a year and a half ago, but we didn’t have a table big enough to use. Mom has about 10 quilted tops that are ready to go. So it is Turing out to be a very nice day.

  56. Mollypop's Mom
    5:00 pm on July 1st, 2012

    So I got lost on my way to the hotel. My car of fine German engineering doesn’t have fine German electronics. It actually took me to two wrong places. Basil and Sage would have come to my aid but their Mama got me on the right track first. I lost an hour when we could have been yakking it up.

    We had a lovely dinner party at the Royals’ house. Kat, a very thoughtful dog, brought a dog cake that was a big hit. There was enough cake for the Newfs who were waiting at home.

  57. B.Stover

    Belle Starr, I’ve missed you!

  59. Mollypop's Mom
    5:15 pm on July 1st, 2012

    We went to Rebecca’s excellent presentation and Kat was loved and adored the whole evening. With all that attention she could get a swelled head, but we had a little talk about how she couldn’t go nyah nyah to the other Huskies when she got home. She did give out lots of pawtographs though.

    We got to sleep at 2:30 a.m. and at 5:30 and 7:30 a.m. Kat walked on me and gave me kisses.

  60. Snowhook Bella
    5:54 pm on July 1st, 2012

    MPM: Kat was just making sure you knew she was there. This is a task best done in intervals. Ask Elim.

    Rose: I received a text from Luna. Belle Starr Spent last week keeping track of Coach, the father not the dog. He has never been to Alaska in the summer and needed to be shown the ropes. According to Luna, Belle Starr wants to help you at the busy place. Fair warning, she doesn’t file, takes frequent naps and will likely arrive late and leav early.

  61. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:56 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Kat!…Did she walk “IN” on you or walk “On” you?…heh!snort!

  62. Melanie
    6:01 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Too much heat and too little sleep.

    Going to try to stay awake longer but not sure if I can!

  63. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:06 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Stover!…Walt Disney is exactly what she doesn’t want them to look like…heh!…Thanks for the reminder though, that pretty much answers the question…snuff!

    Lasagna!…Someone just spent almost the entire ball game making a great big ole Lasagna for supper tonight…sniff!sniff!…Smells good! It’s also for lunch tomorrow as her big ole brother is coming out to fix a few things around here that have been annoyingly broken for some time now…grunt!…Rumor is he will be spending the night. So my friend has been working her @ss off all day long for this big event, not to be confused with Rebecca’s Big Event…wheeze!… She had to weed and water the garden, then go get a TON of groceries, and then do all the laundry and then make sure his room was ready and then make this lasagna….gasp!…She missed most of the game, which the Rockies lost (again!)…grumble!

  64. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:09 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Face-on!….Oh, and inbetween all that she put faces on the fairies…snorkel!…They are still missing noses, but she says that might be okay…chorkel!

  65. Rose
    6:14 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Rebecca: I’m sure Belle Starr did a great job showing Coach the ropes. She and Luna are welcome to blur over anytime ( along with border collie disguised as a Kat, Masquers). There is plenty of room in my cubicle, and none of the Smoochers will need to do anything but be adored by my co-workers.

  66. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:14 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Hurray!…Carlos Gonzalos is going to the All-Star Game!….wooooo!…He has never gone before and really he should have…chuffle!

  67. Rose
    6:16 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Rio, will your friend post some fairy pictures?

  68. Rose
    6:19 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Wookie: Has your dad read “I Thought You Were Dead”, by Pete Nelson?

  69. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:34 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Rose!…No!…Not until after the special person who gets the final project and that person says its okay to post photos…grunt!

  70. Mollypop's Mom
    6:36 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Rio – Kat walked ON me. I said “oof.”

  71. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:41 pm on July 1st, 2012

    MollysMom!…Oooofff!…That would be the right thing to say…wheeze!…She is not a small puppy anymore…gasp!…Why did she pick on you anyways? Did you give her special treats at supper and pet her the most?…grunt!

  72. B.Stover
    6:55 pm on July 1st, 2012

    J.M. Barrie describes the fairy as a “tinker” and thus her name. She mends pots and pans. I assume she has hands.

  73. Masquers
    7:00 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Rose: The Smoochers may just have to give you an assist at the busy place. Having to put your much anticipated getaway with the Prof on hold just isn’t right.
    Kat: Great reporting from the Big Event. Any thoughts of going north for the 2013 Iditarod?
    Sammie: Tell your Aunt Mollie to post a photo of your new collar.
    Melanie: Kool Kake.

  74. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:01 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Arms!….Well, my friends fairies will only be sitting around looking pretty, someone else will do their hair and ironing…heh!….She tried to do arms, but they looked dorky and unnatural-ish…sniff!…Who needs legs and feet when you can lounge around on vines or tree limbs all day…huffle!

  75. Mollypop's Mom
    7:02 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Rio – I shared a hotel room with the Oley Howlers’ Mom and Kat. That’s why Kat was walking on me while I was sleeping.

    Good night, Melanie. Staying up late for the past couple of days…don’t know how you did it. It will take you days to catch up on zzz’s we think.

    Barb&Magpie: Just got notice from the library One Good Dog is on the way! We will be reading it along with you (after first stopping by the store for Kleenex that is)

    Signing off early here too. It’s almost time for our Sunday Night Special – Dinner & A Movie.

    Happy by now belated birthday to Wolfie’s mom. It’s amazing that so many of us have birthdays so close together.
    Rose. My dad says that’s one he hasn’t read. Would you recommend it?
    Well, still hot here in Linthicum, Maryland and no indication from PEPCO that we will have power back at home until possibly Friday, so we may be here a while longer. There are actually a lot of dogs staying here because of the power outage, so we may have a doggie get-together if our two-leggeds agree.

    Linthicum!…That reminds me of a baseball players name…snort!…Wookie, extend your birthday vacation as long as possible…heh!…While you are there, no quilt ladies to supervise, no quilts to test, no burglars to interupt…hey!…Where’s Grandpa???…wheeze!

    Age!…The thing I am noticing while watching the Running, Swimming and Gymnastic events so far is all the Coaches are Old. I mean, they are really Old. Where are all the new younger up and coming Coaches for the Olymipians?…grunt!…Does one of these really old guys have to die before a new young coach is allowed on the scene?…I don’t know?…shiff!

    Beau!…He was bad today…grunt!…Her mother went to lie down and my friend gave us each a treatie so we would stay out of her bedroom…heh!…Well ole Beau he headed straight for her room and planted himself in there…grunt!…My friend tried to get him out and he GROWLED at her…sniff!…She kept trying and he kept growling. So finally she left the room and then he felt bad and had to go make-up to her and he even tried to give her his bone, which is unheard of….wheeze!…Wot a Dummie!

  101. Snowhook Bella
    10:54 pm on July 1st, 2012

    I’ve never heard of a pug sharing his toys or bone with anyone. Never. Rio, your friend should be honored.

  102. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:00 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Shocked!…She was pretty shocked because she thought thats why he was growling, to keep her away from his treatie bone…heh!

  103. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:02 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Behaviour!…His weak behavior is undermining years of work that I have done….grump!…I was with him when he was growling, but once he caved and acted like a wimp I gave up on him…grump!

    Rio, I wonder if Beau was originally owned by an older lady? Before the goof-ball at your busy place had him? She certainly seems to like your Mom.

  106. Snowhook Bella
    11:04 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Staff: I was thinking the same thing. Beau, the Bible quoting pug seems to have an attachment to his friend’s mom.

  107. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:08 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Nope!…He was owned from a puppy on by the same goof-ball and her goof-ball family since he was a puppy…snort!…He likes her mother because of the cheese, crackers, zingers, cheetos, ice cream, peanut butter, bolony and all the other crap he can get his jaws around during the day…gruffle!

    Ahhhhhh. I can understand the attraction.
    Time for me to go to bed.
    Maggie is in although she thought it was 9 in the a.m. and did not want to change into her jammies. We had to talk about it. Made her laugh.
    Night all.

  110. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:18 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Rebecca!…I hope for AJ’s sake you don’t have the kind of deadly gas that Beau has…gasp!

  111. Snowhook Bella
    11:23 pm on July 1st, 2012

    Rio: I assume if that was the case, I would have a cold, hard bed of my very own. Belle Starr is nice enough to allow AJ and I share her bed.

    Thirty days hath June. Well we didn’t think of that so we’re a day late and a dollar short as it seems we’ve been for too long. It does look as though things are coming together with the renovation of the new space and that the store will be opening soon. Then my life may get some semblance of order again. In any case we’re here at 5:30 AM on the second to upload the July calendar page before we start spinning our tires on another
    day of “retirement”. Though we haven’t been following along, we do think of all of you and wish you well.
