Dog Dyeing Fad In China

“What do we think of this dog dyeing fad?” says Spence.

“Not much,” says Admin. “How would you like it if someone dyed you to look like a panda?”

“Maybe I could land a circus job.”

    Good Morning All!
    In China it is better to be dyed than dead.
    Here? Leave the dogs their natural color!

    Patsy agrees. She’s asleep on our bed after having breakfast in our room and then some snacks. All that reading about Panda Chows and Tiger Wöökies was just too much for her.

    Onward and upward for the Auction!

    (Patsy here: Melanie’s in the other room. Hey, we look like bears. Don’t need no fluffing and bleaching on us. O’natural. That’s the ticket . . whoops, here she comes . . . zzzzzzz snore zzzzz)

    Cute! But there is more to the tale than first meets the eye.
    So far this morning someone here is top bidder on a certain item and it’s not the ARC.

  8. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:01 am on July 8th, 2012

    Pawction!….The Pawction is in good paws this morning as Wookie is manning Auction Central…snort!…Is everyone going to wait till a few seconds before 12:00pm Giant time to put in their last bid?…chorkel!

    Good morning!

    It seems as if everyone is sending us all their hot weather. Thanks, guys. We are heading for triple digits.

    Dogs and Kats are perfect just the way they are!

    10:02 am on July 8th, 2012

    Bella – I haven’t done a steak yet on my new grilling pan from Bear. I don’t eat a lot of meat but when I do it has to be as perfect as possible or I don’t eat it. I did grill a cheeseburger and also some very good grilled lettuce. They were excellent!

  11. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:06 am on July 8th, 2012

    Boutique!…Wow!…snort!…My friends stuff is sold already. That was quicker than 2 grunts of a pugs tail..heh!…Now she has to find more boxes…chorkel!….Don’t forget to keep checking the Boutique for new items – and don’t forget to keep donating as you can to the Boutique…chuffle!…Lets keep the store OPEN!…Wooooo!…Now i need some cawfee…sniff!

    10:18 am on July 8th, 2012

    Whew, put up more links to the auction on Facebook! Time to do other things . .

  13. Gus & BooBear
    10:21 am on July 8th, 2012

    Again, after a little research, it appears the randon number generator picks pictures that have just be added to the friends. HMMM…mayhap we should all reload our pictures at the end of the month and test the theory. Unless, and we have to consider this possibility, the selection moves whoever wins to the top of the current page.

    Good Sunday Morning, all.

  14. Gus & BooBear
    10:24 am on July 8th, 2012

    Someone help us out again. Noon Alaska time is what in Central time?

  15. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:27 am on July 8th, 2012

    Puss N’ Boots!…Noon Giant time is 2:00 here in Mountain Standard Time, so if my calculations are correct your time will be 3:00pm….snort!

  16. Siber-H
    10:30 am on July 8th, 2012

    Gus&BearBear, It is 3:00 your time.

    How is Gus doing?

    I ditto what Stover said about dyeing dogs.

  17. Siber-H
    10:31 am on July 8th, 2012

    When Rio and I are in agreement, our answers are always correct. You can count on it.

  18. Gus & BooBear
    10:31 am on July 8th, 2012

    Thank you, Rio. As you know, we are having to keep a close watch on a certain item in the auction.

    We actully hadn’t thought of the boutique still being open and just went over to check it out. Love your friend’s foxgloves as well as the other quilled items. And they certainly sold quickly. WooHoo for Snowhook!

  19. Gus & BooBear
    10:34 am on July 8th, 2012

    SiberH, Gus is responding some to the lasix treatment. His breathing is a little less labored, but not back to normal yet and it seems to be leaving him listless. Hopefully, that is just a result of eliminating all the fluid. He is currently on a pretty high dosage and will be backed off some starting tomorrow. Mom is anxious to see what the vet thinks on the followup visit Tuesday.

  20. Siber-H
    10:42 am on July 8th, 2012

    I’m glad he is going back on Tuesday. Keep us posted. We are all concerned about the little guy.

  21. Snowhook Bella
    10:43 am on July 8th, 2012

    MPM: Thanks for the update on the steak. I don’t know why, but last night it came to mind and seemed a matter of great importance and concern. I need to get more sleep…

    Rio: You have passed the gavel to Wookie. I have no doubt he will bring this auction in the home stretch in style.

    Rose: Belle Starr said she is blurring to you today to ‘help’ with your shopping. Shortly after I received Belle Starr’s text and the worry started to set in about the two of you running wild with credit cards I received a text from Luna with a short messsage: Don’t worry. I’m on it.

  22. Rose
    10:51 am on July 8th, 2012

    Rebecca: BelleStarr just knocked at the door. We get as much shopping as we can done before Luna puts her paw down.

  23. Rose
    10:53 am on July 8th, 2012

    Gus and BooBear: I was just thinking about your FOM theory myself a few days ago. You are right! Rio, if you want to win, send in some new pictures.

    I continue to keep Gus, you and yours in my prayers.

  24. Snowhook Bella
    10:55 am on July 8th, 2012

    The Plunderers are on Team Gus all the way.

    Rose: Go up against Luna at your own risk.

    10:58 am on July 8th, 2012

    Fynn, the newest Friend of Chet, has an all natural dye job that suits him very well. I’ve seen this dye job fad on cats as well. Me? I’ve got better things to spend my money on…the pawction!

  26. Rose
    11:09 am on July 8th, 2012

    Rebecca: The Prof seems to have a thing for female dogs. Since we have cooled off a bit in New York , Luna and he are out for a stroll. BelleStarr and I say, CHARGE IT!!!!

    Question: I know I am a knucklehead sometimes, but I thought the auction’s last day was July 9th, according to the original link. So, it is today, then?

  27. Rose
    11:12 am on July 8th, 2012

    Rio! Your friend’s quilling projects on the Spring Boutique got by me! sniff
    They are all beauties! The owl is really cute!

  28. BearSpiritDog
    11:14 am on July 8th, 2012

    Gus&BooBear: That is encouraging news. Prayers for Gus to continue to improve.

  29. Siber-H

    Rose, The auction ends today.

    Speaking of Steak – how about some Steak & Eggs for breakfast?

  31. Melanie
    11:19 am on July 8th, 2012

    Hey Dawson, how was the wedding?

    Wookie did you see you as a tiger? That was just weird.

    I’m off down the hills for medications and groceries.

    I was going to say something else . . Oh yeah,

    MollyPop’s Mom? Grilled Lettuce?

  32. Masquers
    11:20 am on July 8th, 2012

    Rose: July 9th is the ominous date the internet is predicted to go black for hundreds of thousands worldwide. That would be tomorrow I believe? We shall see…we shall see.

  33. Rose
    11:20 am on July 8th, 2012

    SiberH, thank you. I am such a knucklehead!

  34. Rose
    11:30 am on July 8th, 2012

    Rebecca, please check your SDD….It is important!

  35. Snowhook Bella
    11:41 am on July 8th, 2012

    Rose: Checked and responded. The auction does end today. I had the correct date in the rules, but incorrect on the side; I’ve made the correction.

  36. Siber-H
    11:42 am on July 8th, 2012

    Rose, You are not a knucklehead.

    Well, if you guys don’t hear from me tomorrow, it means I went blank and my mom had to take my computer to the computer hospital. I followed all instructions and checked out my computer like we were suppose to, but still…

  37. Snowhook Bella
    11:43 am on July 8th, 2012

    Rose: Luna has that effect on people. She can get us two leggeds to do just about anything. The Professor doesn’t stand a chance.

  38. Siber-H
    11:48 am on July 8th, 2012

    Rebecca, If I don’t get whaterver I win in the auction paid for online today, the check will be in the mail tomorrow. I’m telling you this in case I go blank tomorrow. The whole internet could go blank tomorrow for all we know. GAH

    HA! Mama and Dad are off to their studio to start getting ready for their Really Big Shew next weekend, and then followed by another Really Big Shew that is going to be in a certain favorite Author’s home town.
    As long as they leave the computer on and the catnip out, we don’t care….
    wait a minute…
    oh nooooooo…..she is turning the computer power off….
    she KNOWS we don’t have opposible thumbs to open it back up….
    its going dark…..

  40. Masquers
    11:59 am on July 8th, 2012

    Siber: Same here…if y’all don’t hear from us tomorrow assume we are lost in siberspace.

    AUCTION CENTRAL BULLETIN. With the last round of bids duly recorded and entered, we have just sailed past $2200 in total bids so far. Woo! Woo! And lots of bidding wars apaw. Let’s keep it up.

    We are actually getting some rain here in Southeast Texas! Makes for a lazy Sunday to do some things around the house and keep an eye on the blog and the Pawction!

  45. BearSpiritDog
    12:41 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Thank You to the Creator for the much needed rain.

    Melanie – Grilled lettuce is delicious. I use the packaged lettuce that has 3 hearts of romaine in it. Cut one in half down the middle, rub the cut side with olive oil and grill it cut side down. For the dressing I use D’Avolio’s honey balsamic vinegar and Persian lime olive oil, and add a package of Good Seasons Italian dressing.

    Google grilled lettuce and you’ll see a lot of pictures.

    12:54 pm on July 8th, 2012

    They used to be a few hours affair. Now they last 2 days. I was in my almost front row seat at 12:30 yesterday…after the bride and groom got hitched they went to a couple different places for pictures, then the reception starting at 5:30 until the wee hours. This morning at 11 there is the gift opening at the bride’s parents house. Whew! Then it is over, and I head back to the US tomorrow night. I sure did have fun though. Salmon stuffed with crab was my favorite food and I danced, danced, danced and yap, yap, yapped with old and new relations. More food will be forthcoming at the gift opening I am sure. Then a nap is on the schedule, I hope.

  48. BearSpiritDog
    12:57 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Dawson: It sounds exhausting just reading about it! We will join you in that nap.

Its nice and cool here today so she is taking advantage of the baking weather…wooo!wooo!

  51. Melanie
    1:35 pm on July 8th, 2012

    I’m back . . much cooler here in the hills than down in the valley.

    Going to check out the auction.

  52. OleyHowlers
    1:52 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Mom thinks grilled lettuce sounds good. We don’t mind her trying it as long as she remembers to put the burgers on the grill for us guys.

    Are youse guys laying back, waiting to pounce right at pawction closing time?

  53. Staff
    2:06 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Rebecca: BelleStarr and I had a fabulous time on-line shopping!

    Our credit cards need to cool off a bit before BelleStarr can puts hers back in her pink, sparkly backpack, and I can put mine back in my wallet. On to AC. Thanks for responding to my SDD earlier.

  57. Riö –The Evil Pug
    3:40 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Inside!…I hope Wookie is doing okay at Auction Central…sniff!….We’ve been outside cleaning the patio….snort!…Somehow Beau ended up with a piece of duct tape on his head…heh!heh!

  58. Riö –The Evil Pug

    3:45 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Tied!…The game with the Knats is Tied!….Woooooo!Wheeeee!…I wonder if Wookie is watching the game inbetween tracking bids….heh!heh!

  60. Snowhook Bella
    3:54 pm on July 8th, 2012

    I bet Wookie’s paws are starting to fly over the keyboard and the Super Bidding Tracker is starting to smoke.

  61. Melanie
    3:55 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Just minutes before the auction ends!

    Patsy and I went swimming in the pool! She actually went swimming! That is a big step up for her. Gracie wouldn’t get off the platform and kept saying to me, “Get the ball, give me the ball, get the ball” So I just pushed her off the platform and she got it herself.

    4:02 pm on July 8th, 2012

    I don’t remember. (ok, what else is new) Will the final amount of the winning bids be put up on the auction site?

  67. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:03 pm on July 8th, 2012

    SiberH!…Just check the comments section on each item…grunt!…The very last New Bid is the final price it went for…snort!

  68. OleyHowlers

    Sniff..we didn’t get the item we bid on right at 4:00

  69. Siber-H

    We got the antique needlepoint pillows. Had quite a bidding war going for them. Didn’t know until the very end if we would win or not!

  80. Snowhook Bella
    4:31 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Thank you to each of you for your support of Snowhook. I’ve said it before, I will say it again—our dog dish runneth over.

    Bev helped me make a little thank you gift for AC. As we tried the ribbons she said, “This one is for the evil pug and this is for the Wookster.”

  81. OleyHowlers
    4:36 pm on July 8th, 2012

    G&BB, our last-minute bid was for W-L’s bandana.

    B, ditto what those guys said…we love everything we’ve seen of Andrea’s.

    4:38 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Sob!…Sob!Sob!Sob!…I’m so happy…sniffle!…I know how much work the people who donate items do and still have to do to get the items to the winners..sniffle!…I am amazed at the huge bids out there! So many generous Plunderers really digging deep to help out Snowhook…wuffle!

  83. Gus & BooBear
    4:44 pm on July 8th, 2012

    OH, we wondered. It wasn’t us bidding against you for that then. Too bad about the bandana…loved the story of how he lost it and then it got returned weeks later.

    This is funny…Staff’s Bear is going to a house full of Sibers.
    It will be up on the top shelf just like my stuffed Huskies.

    The driftwood birds are coming to me, me, me.

    Thanks to everyone for making the auction so successful. You guys are the best.

    I forget – check made payable to Rebecca?

    6:08 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Bear, I got the drop bag from Nome with all our names on it and the signed photo of AJ and the team, our team.

    I also got the Whitey-Lance Bandanna. I will wear it to the dog park and tell all the dogs the story that goes with it. It will go perfectly with my Iditarod dog tag.

    Fellow Sibers, Isn’t it strange how we so often bid on the same items. Mom wouldn’t let me bid on Staff’s bear…something about she feared for the Bear’s safety.

  101. Siber-H
    6:11 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Bluecat, Check made payable to Rebecca will work just fine.

    After-math!….I got nuthin’ ….grunt!…Oh wait, Bev was fixing up something for me and the Wookster…Woooooo!…I’ve got a good guess as to what it is too!…heh!heh!

  103. OleyHowlers
    6:21 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Siber, as we said yesterday(or Friday?), we just always assume it is you who we are in a bidding war with (sorry, Bee). Once again, you stole that bandana right out from under us! If we couldn’t have it, we were hoping you won it! Lucky, Siber. Rebecca knows that you or us will bid for anything Whitey-Lance!

  104. OleyHowlers
    6:25 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Wookie and Rio, thanks for making this happen. We have so much fun bidding at the auction, and then hearing from youse guys, but we know it is a lot of work for you both. You did a tremendous job once again.

  105. Rose
    6:29 pm on July 8th, 2012

    SiberH: We were actually in the bidding war for the finish line picture! Looks like you cleaned up with your mom’s credit card. I am happy you have AJ’s picture, and the drop bag ( I bid on that too), and you will certainly be the handsomest husky at the dog park when you wear W-L’s bandana!!

  108. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    6:31 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Thanks everyone for your kind words. It was actually a lot of fun, and I even let mom and dad pitch in a bit too.

    One question unrelated to the auction. Has anyone heard from Liz in Austalia recently? It has been a while since she has posted.


  109. Melanie
    6:32 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Congratulations B.Stover!! Excellent!

    BearSpiritDog, B.Stover and I had a good time coming up with that one!

    Ummm, who won “Gibs!”?

  110. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:33 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Bandana!…Somehow, someway we need to get a photo of SiberH in that Whitey-Lance bandana….wheeze!…MollysMom this may be a job for you – helping SiberBandana’s Maw take a photo and then load a photo for the blog…grunt!…Please let this happen!

  111. OleyHowlers
    6:33 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Rebecca, please check your SDD when you get a chance.

    Melanie, you got that right: Snowhook wins! Onward Snowhook!

  112. Melanie
    6:35 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Wöökie, Thank you and Riö for all the work you guys did!

    About LizF . . I received an email from her in April at some point.

  113. bluecat
    6:36 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Ooh. I forgot to say – Mom ordered portraits from Andrea. We’ve seen the previews and they’re wonderful. She’s very good with eyes – she got my crossed ones just right. She’s doing pictures of kats I never knew and The Horse in addition to moi.

    Hi, Rose. Lucky ARC winner. We loved having the Robbie book early.

    Who was lucky to get the 3 quilts?

  114. Melanie
    6:40 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Bluecat, that was my next question. QUILTS?

    Whoops, also the dog coat. I bid on the dog coat and was outbid very early.

  115. Siber-H
    6:41 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Thank you Fellow Sibers and Rose
    The Auction was FUN, FUN, FUN!
    I haven’t broken the news yet to mom about the check she will be writing tomorrow.

  116. Melanie
    6:44 pm on July 8th, 2012

    On a totally different subject . .

    I made some treats for the Pack tonight. Plain yogurt, 1/2 banana and smooth peanut butter. Threw it in the blender and then put it into 3 oz dixie cups (remember them? paper not plastic). They are now in the freezer waiting for tomorrow.

    If I can just get Zoe from eating them there should be enough.

  117. B.Stover
    6:48 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Bear: The book was Melanie’s discovery and she asked me to write a forward which I will be doing and then sending to you. The book has very good explanations and examples.

  118. Kat
    6:49 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Melanie, on my way up to visit you and the Pack.


  119. Melanie

    B.Stover, just make sure your grammar is correct! snicker

  120. Melanie
    6:57 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Kat, For you? I will make even more treats.

  121. BearSpiritDog
    7:00 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Siber_H: Ah, yes…the check…Nana looks so relaxed reading her book…maybe I’ll wait until tomorrow to give her the (good) news.

    Wookie: We have been thinking about Liz also. The last time she posted was back in March I think.

    Anxious to hear from Barb&Magpie about the reunion and the search for a hew house.

  122. B.Stover
    7:06 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Well, this auction is done and many people are happy. We are very pleased that BlueCat likes the little birds. They are very sweet. And the feather will have a pretty home to live in, and the Kool Kat will be in good company. Masquers – maybe you can teach him to play jazz with you and you can make up a combo.
    We would like to especially thank Wookie’s mom for donating that gorgeous quilt. We offered to trade her for a couple of Kats in a Box, but alas – she chose the auction instead. And thanks to Rio and Wookie and to all the bidders and donators.
    This has all been great!

  126. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:25 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Combined!…With what the Big Event made and what the Auction made, Snowhook should have Millions of Dollars now…snort!…Or maybe not…sniff!…We still have a long way to go to get The Giant to the Starting Line…heh!…But it will be fun and we will do it together because they are Our Team, and we love them….Woooooo!

  127. Rose
    7:25 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Rio, what books are you referring to?

  128. Riö –The Evil Pug

    Rose!…You know…(hint hint, nod nod)…snuffle!

    Such excitement. Twirling, twirling, twirling . . got to stop, don’t want to splort.

    Going down into the 40’s tonight! YEA!!!!!!

    What I wear swimming . . . long jeans with holes in them, long sleeve shirt, ugly hat and my glasses.

    I am a Bathing Beauty!!

    Snort! (protection from sun, dog claws and cold. i am prepared!)

    We are exhausted from guarding the farm in the ‘rents absence, so we are heading off to bed.

    Good night all.

  131. Rose
    8:24 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Rio, do you mean A Cat Was Involved?

  132. Staff
    8:25 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Liz hasn’t been on the blog for a long time. I miss her.

    Hey LizF!

    I was the second to the last bid on Gibbs. sniff

    I wonder if Dawson bid on anything?

    Bear, I am glad you get Mr.Bear and not SiberH. I don’t trust him and his beautiful ways. I am also glad he will be living high.

    B, I learned recently that I could mail you the book bag, now that Rebecca got your check. But I am not where the Book bag is. It will be mailed soon after I return to the farm. 🙂

  133. Rose
    8:36 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Rio, If that’s the book you mean, I don’t have it yet! Heh!

  134. Rose

    Night all, sleep well Gus.

    Good day, Liz! Write soon.

    9:19 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Thanks to Melanie, Rio and Wookie at Auction Central and to all the Plunderers. That was fun!
    Drum Roll please…I won Wookie’s Quilt of Amazing Colors!; A new quilt by Jasper’s mom (#15) which I will check for mistakes. Heh; Gibs! (I can’t wait to see the illustrations); and a Staff purse.
    I was very lucky on my bids as I got stuck at the gift opening and could not defend my bids from last minute shoppers.
    There will be a 2 day delay before I send a snail mail check (honest!) when I get back to the city. I am a lucky Plunderer.

    9:28 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Staff: er, we won’t be welcoming Mr. Bear, although he would have been a fine companion. He will be joining the Oley Howlers on their farm.

    Wookie: Thanks for the final tally. Now if we only knew who won what. Winners of items 5, 14, 19, 20 have not reported in.

  144. Staff
    9:34 pm on July 8th, 2012

    9:50 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Dawson – congratulations girlfriend. You’ll be Quilt Queen.

    We think it’s pretty special that Jasper’s mom, with all that’s going on in her life, made two quilts for Snowhook. Like Rio’s friend’s quilling projects. Like Spence with the ARC, every auction item was special.

    Say goodnight, Gracie.

    Back!…burp!…cough!…Now someone has decided we finally have time to watch a Netflix movie call, “Midnight In Paris”…snort!…I think many of you have seen it already. I am not a big whatshisname fan, but we are going to watch non the less…sniff!

  147. Snowhook Bella
    9:56 pm on July 8th, 2012

    Whew! What a day! Several of you have emailed about paying via PayPal. If you like, you can find a button on our blog where you can enter the appropriate amount:

    If you are paying by check, please make it payable to me rather than the kennel.

    Rio: What is your guess on the thank you token? I bet you’re right!

  164. Snowhook Bella
    11:57 pm on July 8th, 2012

    I’m just settling in to responding to emails about payment and confirming winning status. I posted the link to our blog for those who want to pay online. As the practice has been in the past, I will notify the seller of the winner’s address once payment is received.

    To those who won items in the auction: Am I the only one that finds Wookie’s emails a treat to read! Our Wookster really is something, just like all of youse.

  165. Snowhook Bella
    12:09 am on July 9th, 2012

    T&G: You weren’t the only one who wanted the beautiful quilt by Wookie’s mom. I offered up AJ as partial payment to help someone get their paws on the quilt. Even with AJ’s worth the funds were insufficient. Sigh…
