“Is there going to be a quiz on this?” Spence says.

“Just the precession part,” says Admin.

“Can hardly wait.”

Welcome Rascal.

    Gooood morning, everyone! Whoo hoo, days just for us! Mom wants to know if it is Saturday yet?

    Need some Plunderer help. We received a wonderful passport (thanks, C Lawson!) but didn’t understand the instructions that came with it. Please somebody email spence.quinn@gmail.com and enlighten him.

    Correction! We meant to thank Dawson, of course. More sleep? We need it.

    Wowser! NIce to know that mom isn’t the only one to “oops” occasionally. Good morning Chet & OFA.

    Hey!
    Nice to get a shout out from Chet. I know he’ll get my name right eventually, heh, heh.

    It’s August. Know what that means? The Iggy Chronicles, Volume One!

    Now I have to go look at the new FOC, Rascal.

    Chet and Admin – would love to help, but we only got as far as opening the envelope and seeing the gorgeous passport.
    We know Dawson would like the outside envelope to be folded in a way that preserves the stamp and postmark, and mailed back to her. And we know that the passports were sent for no money to Dawson, but a suggested do action of $10 or more to Snowhook.

    And now back to the work table. Mama leaves for her next show on Wednesday…..GAH!!!!!.

    “Do action”? Donation! Gah again

    Dawson, the HOH SASE (sort of) should have arrived? Did it?

  9. Staff
    10:15 am on August 3rd, 2013

    I sent an email to Spence/Peter so he will understand our passports. Snicker. Now he has to remember it, and his stamp, when he goes traveling.

    Have avatar/passport foto of mom celebrating Daddy Dawg’s b-day ready to rock & roll. Oops, need signature :(

    Hopefully our passport will arrive today! Good morning all.

    Will go read about dog days.

    Interesting article. I, of course, immediately think of Sirius in the Harry Potter series. (His animagus is a black dog.) “Precession” is the wobble (love that word; it’s used in the article) that the earth makes as it rotates on its axis, similar to the motion of a spinning top.

    Good Saturday (HOH’s mom) morning all.

  13. Staff
    10:31 am on August 3rd, 2013

    Hey Chet, the link doesn’t go to an article on precession. It only goes to today’s blog post.

  14. Herd of Hounds
    10:31 am on August 3rd, 2013

    B: you might enjoy this tale. On the release of book 3 of HP series, mom took Aretha (our first newf) to the bookstore/coffee shop @ midnight and told people she was “seriously black”. Made lots of new (and newf) friends that night.

  15. Barb & Maggie
    10:45 am on August 3rd, 2013

    Sorry to have to admit this, but we didn’t know that Dog Days was so tied to astronomy. Always thought it had to do with the summer heat making dogs too lazy to do anything except lay around in the shade.

  16. B. Stover
    11:38 am on August 3rd, 2013

    Good one HOH!

    Mom loves the Dog Days of Summer. I like them because it means we are getting that much closer to winter.

    Rio, I haven’t been able to follow the Rockies games on the internet much because we have had an unusual number of electrical storms. I do know they finally won last night.

    I hope I folded C. Larsen’s envelope correctly when I mailed it back to her.

  18. Herd of Hounds
    12:20 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Commander Rio, HOH here but no letter in box yet. Awaiting further instructions.

    1:07 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    I just learned a new word: garrigue. It’s French for wasteland or moor and it’s part of a description on a bottle of wine I just got–Chateau Constance Corbieres. I’m going to open the bottle tonight and toast Teddy.

  20. dawson
    1:56 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Hey y’all,
    The turtleman and woman are over to try winning at cards but I want to say thanks for the envelopes received so far. They are from: Staff, HOH, CHobbit, BStover, SiberH, Rose, Oley Howlers, Blue Cat and Rio.

  21. Gus and BooBear
    2:01 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Dawson, ours is going in the mail Monday. Mom is also sending the cancelled stamps from the box that Staff mailed the blanket with. Pretty neat stamps there. Dogs stamps!!

    PUPPIES! Bess’s Great Grand Pups.

    Totally zonked. Will catch up with all the new words and article later.

    The puppies were ADORABLE! 6 weeks old. I’m hoping this will work, but you might have to watch it sideways.

    Going to take a nap read for a bit.

    C.Larson and or Noswad – we will make sure Mama sends the envelope back – as soon as she has a thought in her head. sigh

    “Seriously Black” – too funny.

    Dilemma here – albeit a delicious one – the local VFW is doing a pig roast today. The promoter told the Storyteller about it a couple of weeks ago, but the tickets were kind of our of our league, especially since Mama wouldn’t have left Gramps home. So, they were planning a quick hamburg dinner so Mama could get taped back to her work table. Then there was a knock on the door.
    Someone had purchased tickets for three, and asked the promoter to give them to a veteran who might not have gone otherwise. So guess where they are going this afternoon after all.
    How nice of someone to do that – sniff.
    Even if Mama is fussing a little bit over time lost from work. We think she should just bloody well get over it and be thankful.

    2:16 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Howdy!
    C.Lawson, we are glad you got our envelope. We didn’t put it in the white outer envelope because we didn’t know about that part until Staff posted that later.
    Melanie, those pups are so dang cute!
    Dog Days has nothing to do with hot; if they did, they would arrive in June or July. By the time we get to Dog Days, things are cooling down, at least around here.
    What else? We forget. We are getting company soon, including one our favorite little boys: Keo. After that, it is Weed Weekend!

  25. Gus and BooBear
    2:17 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Melanie, perhaps the River Bear Newf pack has room for a new puppy?

  26. Pancho & Lefty
    2:31 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    T&G: Our vote if for bloody well getting over it and have a good time.

    Melanie: Have the pups’ on/off switches been found, yet?

    Wose: Please do not let Belle Starr see the video of the Newf pups. No good will come of it. Hey! Listen to us—we sound like te voice of reason and that never happens…heh, heh.

  27. Barb & Maggie
    2:41 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    We clicked on Melanie’s link and all we saw was a green box. Did that happen to anyone else?

    Barb stopped at the library and ordered the 3rd Raine Stockton book. While she was talking to the reference librarian she suggested they order in Spencer Quinn’s books for the Woodstock library. She checked and said “Oh, we carry all of the Chet and Bernie series, they are just all checked out. They must be popular”. Barb had checked several times, and they are never on the shelf. That is good!

  28. B. Stover
    2:49 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Barb: You need to have Quick Time installed to open Melanie’s video. Thank you for the explanation of the one-review story.

    2:58 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Got mine – will get the stamps back soon. Thanks!!

  30. Tupper and Gilly
    4:05 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Well, they are off to the pig roast. Did they offer to take us?
    No they did not.

    4:10 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Oh my Dog!
    I got Wookie’s Ma & Pa’s envelope back too. What a wonderful surprise inside. Wookie stamps! I am thrilled and honored and twirling. Thank you so much. Sniff, yippee!
    A Catty Librarian had some stamps made also. They are of Dad and Mom at a rally. Mom has a big sign attached to her walker that says: “World War II Vet for Peace”.
    Thanks for everyone who answered Spencer Q’s question this morning. I did send him an email also.
    We are on break from cards while Turtleman and E meet a friend for lunch and I make some chicken noodle soup at Dad’s request. Oh yeah…this morning he decided he wanted French toast for breakfast.

  32. SnowBella
    4:25 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Tyb: I want to tell you I’m so proud of you getting the fancy letters behind your name. Woo and hoo! If I remember correctly you tested for some fancy letters last year, but there was a redhead involved.

    Dawson, Staff and Turtleman: A certain envelope arrived while I was on the road for work. AJ kept it safe from Pancho and Lefty until I returned home. The passports are a thing of beauty! Thank you to each of you for making the passports.

  33. SnowBella
    4:26 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    I wonder where Rio is today. Maybe he through caution to his gas and left his yard and is bound for a pig roast in the northeast.

  34. Herd of Hounds
    4:42 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Snow Bella:Rio did mention something about a passport and leaving the yard yesterday. Oh,oo.

    Gasp!…I am finally downstairs in the coolness…sneeze!…My friend has been busier than a raccoon in a trash can…grunt!…She even went clothes shopping and she never does that. At lunch she brought home a great big pizza from the good pizza place and made Beau’s day…heh!heh!…Speaking of Beau, he is off his meds and doing okay but is very stiff. He still limps and lifts his leg sometimes when he runs, but everyone thinks he will be okay in another coupla weeks or until he does something stupid again…wheeze!

  36. Barb & Maggie
    5:13 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Guess what just came in the mail! If you say “A Passport” you would be wrong, because we got TWO passports!. One is postmarked July 24th, and one is postmarked August 1st! They are both correctly addressed, but the first one has FWD stamped on the front. Assuming that means Forward. But who knows where it went first? That is a rhetorical question. We will use one for Barb and one for Maggie. Sorry you had to go to the extra trouble.

    Thank you, C. Lawson, I mean Dawson, I mean Double D, I mean NOSWAD. I think you have more AKAs than anyone else on this here blog!

  37. Barb & Maggie
    5:16 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    BTW, Spence said he got instructions with his. We didn’t get no stinkin instructions with either of ours. Could you forward the ones you sent to Spence, please, peerrty please.

  38. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:24 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Barb!….What? You don’t know how to use a passport, or you don’t know how to mail back a stamp?…snort!…What instructions are you looking for?…heh!

  39. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:24 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Rebecca!…I will be happy if you check your SDD…grunt!

    Buuuuurrrrppp!
    Oh dear, excuse us. But that crispy, roasted pig skin was truly a thing of beauty to the taste buds.

    Yeeeep!….Tornado warnings here and major hail and rain….grunt!…Even the sirons went off….yeeeeep!…Head for cover – she says I have to stay downstairs and not try and find my toys under the bed…grunt!Yeeeeep!

  44. Pancho & Lefty
    7:11 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Rio: Maybe your friend will bring the bed downstairs complete with bed frame so you can hide under it. It seems like a reasonable request to us. Batten down the pugs and baseball toys!

    More to Rio: Responded. Burp!

    What is the white outer envelope that we’re supposed to mail back in?

  47. Melanie
    7:21 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    I am having a good day. Played with puppies, took a nap, went for a walk.

    Our neighbors on the corner have moved, but have not sold the house here. We get to see them whan they come up to mow the 11 acres. Had a nice talk, continued on my walk.

    As I came back they had ceated a free pile. I got a book for the auction – when is that, anyway – and tried something out. Went back home and told Zoë, you know how you get an idea, and it’s either wonderful or is terrible?

    Took her in the car, and voila!
    Behold the 6 foot in diameter dog bed!

  48. O'Howlers
    7:21 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Oh no, Rio. You got us worried about you, Pal.

    Have any of youse read Isabel Allende? Mom wants to know. She is thinking of reading Daughter of Fortune, and would like to know if it is worthwhile.

  50. Barb & Maggie
    7:27 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Rio, We understand about mailing back the envelopes with stamps, but the other part has us confused. Do we take the passport with us when we meet another Plunderer? And what is the stamp that we are supposed to use to validate it?

  51. Siber-H
    7:39 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Rio, You guys stay in the basement.

    I will not be watching any Rockies games until Thursday night. It seems they overbooked the technician and he can’t make it out this afternoon. He will be here on Thursday.
    They are knocking $5 off the bill for 6 months because they are sorry. GAH and a pox on them.
    We all know what satellite tv company I am talking about.

  52. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:47 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    What!….Thirty lousy bucks for all that inconvenience?…snort!…Outrageous!…grump!

    Poor SiberH!…sniff!

  53. dawson
    7:51 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    You can use any old envelope you want to send the stamped envelope back to me AND you can fold the stamped envelope or not fold it – that part is NOT important. The important part is to send the stamped envelope that the passport came in back to me.

    Barb&Maggie: If you go to meet a Plunderer you bring your passport. They will have a stamp or a sticker or a pawprint or a thumbprint to stamp your passport just like a passport is stamped when you cross a border. Each Plunderer is responsible for getting their own personal stamp, sticker, thumbprint or pawprint. I did send Stover a wonderful “B” that I found but I am not buying every Plunderer a stamp. I do not have any more spare passports…just saying.

  54. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:55 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    CLawson!…How come Barb gets TWO passports?…grump!…I only got one passport…grumble!…She doesn’t even pay attention to the blog enough to know how to use ONE passport let alone TWO passports…sniff!

  55. Herd of Hounds
    7:56 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    B&M: We believe this is where individual creativity comes in. Mom has a self-inking stamp for arrivals and a stick-on stamp for departures, Hope it will be ok.

    HOH, yearning for those days when Darah was this small?

    8:24 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    MELANIE!…That bed is amazing!…snort!…And I was going to say so earlier, but I got distracted by hail and lightning and thunder and rain and tornados…gasp!

  65. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:27 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Postal!…Also, the person we were supposed to send a little box to this morning that we forgot to send last weekend…grunt!…We forgot again…wheeze!…Unbelievable. Although, I’m sure CHobbit is very, very patient with us and understands that her Harness Prize will not be complete till sometime in the distant future…wuffle!

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:42 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Shaved!…Looks like everyone on that big red bed got shaved for the dawg days of summer…heh!heh!….All the better to swim around, eh?…snort!

  67. dawson
    8:49 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Yikes!
    Four Newfs on a bed is enough to give anyone pause…but that Newfie puppy is unresistable.

    8:54 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    One more thing before I head up the stairs.
    This came in from one of our neighbors.

    “Dogs Welcome”

    A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a Midwest town he planned to visit on his vacation. He wrote: I would very much like to bring my dog with me.
    He is well-groomed and very well behaved.
    Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?

    An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who wrote:
    SIR: “I’ve been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I’ve never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware or pictures off the walls.
    I’ve never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly.
    And I’ve never had a dog run out on a hotel bill.
    Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel.
    And, if your dog will vouch for you, you’re welcome to stay here, too.

  69. Herd of Hounds
    8:55 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Mom has a couple of fotos of Darah when she was small and cute. Now larger and still cute.Won’t trade the lummox:) Still, not much like a baby newf!

    Melanie: Mom thought she’d done well getting a crib mattress for a newf bed…you win!

  70. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:57 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    CLawson!…So you opened Staff’s little box?…sniff!…Was everything “intact”? No little beads escaping from the scene, right?…sniff!…My friend wants to know. I do not really care one way or the other as long as Staff has sent her money to Snowhook…heh!heh!…Little beads? poo-paw!

  71. SnowBella
    9:02 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Melanie: Several summers ago, I went upstairs to go to bed. This is what I found. Tenzing refused to move and made no apologies. I made myself comfortable on AJ’s side of the bed. When he came to bed, I made no apologies and half heartedly refused to move.

    Rio: Snort!

  72. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:09 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Mr Tenzing!…Way to go pal!…woooo!

    9:13 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Beau!…Ever since he hurt his knee he wants up on the big bed…grunt!…How in the hell he has managed to do this is beyond me. At first she lifted him up even though he does not like to be lifted – then in the morning she lifted him off even though he does not like to be lifted…grunt!…Now he thinks he should be up there every night…sniff!…This is pissing me off royally, boy oh boy…grump!spit!

  74. O'Howlers
    9:13 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    What a great night on the blog. How on earth did Melanie find a bed big enough for what? 3 Newfs! And then that adorable Newfie puppy…awwww. Tenzing in bed in Bella’s spot. Another awww.
    Our favorite? That letter from the hotel. Yes! Our kind of place!!

  75. Riö - The Evil Pug

    9:31 pm on August 3rd, 2013

    Oh no. We didn’t get Kat’s light on her on time. And now she is not found. Pop went looking with his big spotlight, but it is very foggy/misty out in our fields tonight, so he could not locate her. What a goofy pipsqueak. Dima and Meashka have big-a__ bones, and so little Kat has been a little intimidated. She had her own bone, which she immediately took out to the field to hide yesterday, but that dope can’t find it! heh heh!

  78. Siber-H

    Tenzing has big ears, but he is still one handsome dude.

    Kat!…If Kat is in her big back yard she will surely come home to be in for the night, right?…sniff!sniff!…Kat go to your warm soft bed, NOW!…grunt!

    Pirates!….The Pirates ball field is a thing of pure beauty….snuff!…Every time they show a shot of it from over-head my friend and I gasp at the color and design of it…wheeze!…The New Name sucks. But the ball park is beautiful…sniff! …Too damned bad SiberH cannot see this. Especially the Clint Chewing part..…heh!heh!

    Good night, good night to one and all. We are going to bed to dream of crispy pork rinds.
    (Very glad Kat is home safe and sound)

    Always come back Kat. We get all poodled up.

    The Catty Librarian told me the inside story of finding Scout. They had reports of her whereabouts and went to the field where she was reported. They saw her. Scout was so scared she started to run away again. Christy’s friend had his dog along and he and Scout are good friends. They let his dog off the leash and he ran over to Scout and she was so glad to see her dog buddy that she came to him. He (I wish I knew his name) led Scout back to them. When Scout got close enough he saw it was Christy and he jumped all over her. (Just like those video’s of dogs greeting their owners who have been away on deployment.)
    The picture of Christy and Scout was taken after Scout was done jumping all over her.

    Got my pronouns mixed up. Scout is a her.

    The next time Alice gets out I will try howling. What do you think?

    Scared!…And alone!…snort!…That is what my friend keeps telling me and Beau if we ever left the back yard without her…sniff!…We would be scared and alone. I don’t believe it! I would be happy and free and I would have my little knapsack all packed full of bacon and stuff…sniff!…It would be GREAT!…heh!…Plus, I have ONE passport now. I can go anywhere legally….chuffle!

    Good news that Kat has been found!
    Staff, I do not believe howling would work for Alice but salmon bonbons might.

    Usual news…the Rockies lost again.

    night all

    Kat: I’m glad your safe and back at home. My Lady has been known to get us to do a kennel howl to bid a wayward dog home.

    Nighty noodles.
