    SH: That doesn’t count since we were using yesterday’s post earlier.

    It would be nice to hear from Chet again.

    Darn these furry paws…

    So Mr.Staff and Staff are relaxing after a very exciting morning. You remember how it is severe drought here? (as almost everywhere else) Well Mr.Staff went out to our burning barrel this morning.

    Yep, you got it.

    Did he have the hose hooked up and close? No.
    Did he stay and watch it? No.

    Luckily he did keep an eye on it from the house and noticed right away and then just after he tore out of the house Staff decided to go out for some unknown reason and she noticed it.


    So we have a big burned spot in our east ‘meadow’ and all the neighbors came over and the fire trucks from three little towns came too, after it was out.

    Mr.Staff’s hair is a little less long on the top but other than that and his slippers, yes his slippers, being ruined beyond belief, all is well.

    He now has been trained in proper burning, and Staff too.

    Staff was out there with a bucket of water and a towel when the fire truck came, Mr. Staff had the hose that she had brought him. He had been trying to stamp the fire out.

    Dog, Staff and Alice are wanting those books!

    First I thought the review said, “Peternatural” and thought it was a pun. Then I read it correctly . . “Preternatural”.

    I thought I’d look it up because I’ve never used that word that way.

    From the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

    Definition of PRETERNATURAL

    : existing outside of nature
    : exceeding what is natural or regular : extraordinary
    : inexplicable by ordinary means; especially : psychic

    Hmm. we could have a lot of fun with this . .

    Also, my spell check thinks that Merriam is incorrect. So my spell check does not like that dictionary!

    Good Dog Alice! Your household is starting to sound like mine. That can be dangerous.

  8. Alice M. Johnson
    12:53 pm on July 30th, 2012

    I do think our households have many things in common Melanie. Not a pool though. A large pool full of water would have been helpful this morning.
    And of course as wonderful as 9 Newfies are they are much better off there, than here.

    12:54 pm on July 30th, 2012

    I am up top right now! Hi there Rio!

    Alice, You had an exciting morning, but glad it wasn’t any worse. That is one of those things that is funny, but not funny.

  12. Siber-H
    1:19 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Now is a really good time to announce that I don’t know how to send out a bunch or emails at once like you guys do. I only know how to send out one at a time. I replied to the one sent out to all of us ths morning. I may have replied to all of you or just to Rio. I have no idea. I didn’t say anything important.

  13. Melanie
    1:33 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Siber-H, it is funny in the retelling or if it doesn’t happen to you. I know this from experience . .

    Also, don’t know how your email is set up, but on some emails there is an arrow for return and then two arrows over lapping, on top off, or says “reply to all”. If you click that you should send an email to everyone on the list.

  14. Macy the Min-pin
    1:54 pm on July 30th, 2012

    We are picturing Mr. Staff in bunny slippers doing a cha-cha on the fire. Maybe he could have done a rain dance instead.

    We signed up, so will no doubt win. whispering…if no one else signs up, or just us, that is ok or…

    At mom’s swim time today the lifeguards turned the water to the slides on, and boy were they surprised at the ruckus a bunch of “mature” ladies can make. Mom went down once slowly and then again at warp speed, or at least that is the way she tells it.

    1:59 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Yawn!…I’m too busy to post…snort!…See ya’all tonight maybe…sneeze!

    Siber-H: Everything you have to say is important and don’t you forget it!
    When I want to reply to all I click on the reply arrow…then cc: to all…pretty much the same as what Melanie said.

    Alice: Good Grief! Thank Dog the fire is out.
    Thank you for the puzzle, Abbie. We here are puzzle addicts.

    Macy: Picturing your mom going down the water-slide at warp speed.


  19. Basil and Sage
    2:27 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Hey everyone. Sage here to say that I am officially OFF DUTY as an EMT. I actually let Gilly out of my sight today and went about my own business. The v.e.t. called Mama to say that Gilly did indeed have pancreatitis , but that it wasn’t at the high end of the scale so she should be alright with a few more days of meds and the rice and boiled chicken diet.
    Mama was so relieved she started crying – the big wimp! I could have told her that with my healing skills and the PlunderPrayers she didn’t have anything to worry about. (by the way – she says THANK YOU for all your good thoughts. Gilly is now officially relinquishing her corner of the quilt. )

  20. Masquers
    2:54 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Yes, we all know the healing powers of Plunder prayers and the quilt. Now everyone sees the magical healing powers of kats.
    Sage: Good job! You saved the day.

  21. Masquers
    2:55 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Plunderer prayers.

  22. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:59 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Gilleeee!…She probaby got well just to git rid of That Darn Kat!…heh!…Back to my bed…yawn!

  23. Siber-H
    3:09 pm on July 30th, 2012

    ok ,Thanks guys. I always thought if I hit reply to all it might go out to everyone I sent an email to in my entire life. I am not very trusting of technology.

    Gilly, You are well on your way to recovery. Great news!

    Macy, Mom wishes she had a swim time and a water slide, but, alas, no water here. I could dig her a pool in the backyard, but the water police would come after her when she tried to fill it.

  24. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:14 pm on July 30th, 2012

    SiberH!…We have water police too…sniff!…I wish they would give Beau a ticket…grunt!…His new favorite thing to water is zuchinni…heh!

  25. B.Stover
    4:01 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Staff: I am glad things were not worse but that was very scary.

    Great news about Gilly.

    I heard the first cicada of the summer. Love that sound.

  26. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:09 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Staff!…Take a photo of Mr. Staff’s slippers and post them…snort!…”How not to stomp out a blazing fire”…grunt!

  27. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    4:38 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Mr Staff – your adventure reminds Natasha of old Russian joke:

    Vhy do ducks have big vebbed feets?
    To stamp out burning forests.
    And vhy do elephants have big flat feets?
    To stamp out burning ducks.

    Is good no elephants vere in meadow today, yes? Vould be stomped-flat Mr Staff!

  28. OleyHowlers
    4:52 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Hi Guys.
    Whew! Staff, that was mighty scary! What was he thinking?
    Great news about Gilly.
    Mom talked to our vet about the Neutricks. The doc never used that product, but has researched it and said that since it is a completely natural product, there would be no harm in trying it. Mom has ordered it from Amazon (gotta love that one-click).

  29. Buddy
    4:53 pm on July 30th, 2012

    It took us foreverto finish the Bearded Collie, Abbie.

  30. Barb & Maggie
    5:07 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Staff, OMD, what a morning! Barb does not burn. She is a city girl I guess, so she is one of the only ones around here that has garbage pickup. Most of the people on the road have burn barrels. Did Mr Staff get lectured by the fire departments?

    Gilly girl, glad you are better and that you got such exceellent care from one of those wrotten kats.

    Rio, are your zucchini doing OK, other than Beaus extra watering help? Around here everyone says all their squash vine plants are drying up. Maybe the zucchini does better since it is more compact.

  31. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:51 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Zucchini!…All we have are big leaves and flowers – no actual zucchinis yet, even with Beau’s added effort…grunt!

  32. Melanie
    6:40 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Patsy is taking longer and longer naps in the afternoon. I am seriously thinking of joining her more often.

    I hope Rose is okay.

    Please good thoughts for me tomorrow. Going to the doc about my ulcer and liver. Hope he doesn’t schedule invasive tests. A nice easy time of it is what I’d like.

  33. Masquers
    6:57 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Melanie: Say no more. Positive thoughts coming your way for the best results tomorrow. For now you can join Patsy in a nice nap.

  34. SnowBella
    6:59 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Staff: I am glad to hear that only bunny slippers were harmed in the morning’s activities. Sometime I will tell you of the time AJs facial hair went from a full beard to a goatee in the bling of an eye and burst of a flame.

    The smoochers made it to Rose with moments to spare. Kat did an excellent job being blurred and only squirmed once or twice. Luna says it is difficult blurring with two dogs at a time especially when one of those dogs is as tall as the Outlaw litter. Difficult, but not impossible. Luna wonders if Wolfie is offering a beginners blurring class sometimes soon so a certain Belle Starr can get her permit.

    Rio: Why are you so tired today? Did you stay up watching the Olympics?

  35. Melanie
    7:02 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Women’s cycling Road Race is on the computer!!

    Hi Bella, Glad to hear all arrived safely.

  36. B.Stover
    7:07 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Melanie: I hope all goes well tomorrow.

  37. SnowBella
    7:09 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Melanie: Nice and Easy wishes for you tomorrow!

  38. Siber-H
    7:21 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Very Good Thoughts tomorrow, Melanie. I don’t want you to have any invasive tests either.

  39. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:21 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Rebecca!…I’ve been tired and grumpy all day long…grump!…I think the only thing that will make it all better is watching some of the US athletes get the Gold Medal tonight…heh!

  40. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:22 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Melanie!…Simple solution. Just don’t go to the Vet Doctor tomorrow…sniff!

  41. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:24 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Cool!…It is cool and almost rainy here right now…sniff!sniff!…It smells like rain, but it is not raining. Yet! Everyone has pretty high hopes though…snort!

  42. SnowBella
    7:32 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Rio: I think it is men’s gymnastics tonight if I heard correctly.

  43. SnowBella
    7:34 pm on July 30th, 2012

    CyberH: you did it!

  44. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:34 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Men!…The men’s team is not as good as the womens team in my pug-opinion…sniff!…But they are fun to watch nevertheless…snort!…There will probably be some swimming thrown in there, right?…wheeze!

  45. SnowBella
    7:46 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Rio: I suspect there will be swimming tonight. It is probably a good thing that you and I are so far down on the alternate list for the US swim team because I don’t think my flowered swim cap and water wings do anything for my back stroke.

  46. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:52 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Flowered!…Swim cap?…heh!snort!heh!…I can actually picture you with that on…chorkel!

  47. Melanie
    8:07 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Keeping with the Giant’s color choice, Bella’s new swim cap.

  48. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:15 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Cap!…Very stylish for a flowered swim cappie!…heh!

  49. Alice M. Johnson
    8:17 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Staff took some pix for me. Mr.Staff had already washed his extremely cheap slippers (from Carol Wright catalog) and so had only a few burned and scalped spots to show off.

  50. Rose
    8:18 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Hey youse guys, Wose here!

    What a tiring day! Lightning bolts this morning (thank you Smoochers for arriving on short notice, and your healing powers).

    Eye doctor in the afternoon, talk therapy right after….Back to the busy place tomorrow.

    Melanie, good thoughts and prayers coming at you!

    Sage, I don’t think Gilly will be complaining about you written Kats anytime soon!

    Rio, Beau was up top when I first signed in. The Prof says he looks like Winston Churchill…..

  51. Alice M. Johnson
    8:20 pm on July 30th, 2012

    And the ‘meadow’. You can see how close it got to the woods and the anhydrous tank.

    The firemen said the anhydrous tank would probably not have done anything as the fire was not really hot.

    However if it had got to the woods on the left it would have been a real bad thing to try to put out. Probably just had to let it burn. It got to within a foot of the woods.

    You can see the rusty old burning barrel on the lower left.

  52. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:22 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Wose!…Wose is back! Wose is back and she is okay!….woooooo!!!…Sometimes my friend calls Beau, Beauregard. Is that a name? …snort!…Then sometimes she calls him Mister Moo or Pissy Pants….heh!…I have no idea why.

  53. Melanie
    8:23 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Wow, for once I have dogs I know up top. Bleu and Riö in a bow tie.

    Speaking of pictures . . . tomorrow is the last day of July. Just saying . .

    Alice, tell Mr. Staff those slippers must be made out of fire proof material.


  54. Alice M. Johnson
    8:23 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Pissy Pants. I wonder when she calls him that? When he is around the zucchini?

  55. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:23 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Alice!…Oh My Dawg!…snort!…That is bigger than I first imagined….yeeep!

  56. Alice M. Johnson
    8:26 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Melanie, Staff could not believe how well they came out after being dumped in the washer. Heh. They were perfectly black. I think we are lucky they were not made of something that melted. It could have been a very bad thing.

    We were very lucky all day today.

  57. SnowBella
    8:31 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Melanie: The cap I bought years ago from a yard sale with plastic white daisies isn’t anywhere near as nice as the black cap you posted. Plus, it is and AJ approved color…how can a girl go wrong?

    Staff: one word comes to mind—lucky. Whew!

  58. STAFF
    8:35 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Did anyone notice that PS/SQ is going to be in San Diego in September? See the link on the right—–>

  59. OleyHowlers
    8:45 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Hi Guys,
    We are so darn proud of our pal Cyber. What a tech-savy guy he is turning into.
    Good luck for tomorrow, Melanie. Although we have to admit that Rio’s suggestion carries logic.
    Kat called to tell us how much fun it is to hang out with Rose, the Prof, and The Smoochers. She said something about lightning bolts and asked us what those were. We have no idea.
    Take care of our tall little girl, Rose, and then send her back by Luna-Xpress when her kisses are too much (as they usually are).

  60. Riö –The Evil Pug

    Diving!….Can the Mens Diving attire get any smaller I ask you?….heh!…They might as well just go without…snort!

  61. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:43 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Walk!…I think we are going to have to go walk pretty soon…sniff!…Depends on what events are coming up…wheeze!

  62. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:49 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Volleyvoll!…sniff!…It might be next, not sure, but I love Misty May and Karrie Warner (spelling?)…snort!…I didn’t think those two would be back for this Olympics…wow!

  63. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:00 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Sleeping!…Beau and I are both playing dead-tired so she will feel sorry for us and not make us get dressed up for The Walk…grunt!…ooooh! I have to flop down now really quick!…oofff!

  64. B.Stover
    10:12 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Bear: I keep forgetting to say–I mailed Queen’s English by first class post. You are supposed to receive it by Thursday.

  65. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:37 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Gasp!…She did not believe that I was dead-tired…grump!wheeze!…We just got back from The Walk….gruffle!…Now we are watching Swimming…cough!sneeze!…I have yet to see anyone with the same swimming cappie as Rebecca’s…heh!

  66. Barb & Maggie
    10:38 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Melanie, Our Joey is sleeping longer, too. Sometimes he doesn’t get up till 4:00 in the afternoon. No accidents so far. We have to just appreciate all the time we have with them.

    Night all.

    Yikes, how did I make a frowny face. Disregard that.

  69. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:56 pm on July 30th, 2012

    WOOOOOOO!…Missy Franklin from Colorado wins Gold…heh!…Youse guys already know this, but me and my friend did not until we saw the race just now…heh!heh!…Yipppeeee!

    Cake!…That can’t be cake…sniff!sniff!…Smells like ham to me…slurp!

  70. Tupper and Gilly
    10:57 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Hey everyone – Gilly here. Sorry to make you all worry about me. I’m doing pretty good now, and Mama says I will just get better every day.
    Funny thing is that Sage has been my good buddy for the past couple days, and now he won’t give me the time of day. hmmph!

    Rio – Mama says that if the men divers followed your suggestion, she might spend more time watching….and giving them points. It would give a whole new meaning to a score of 9.5……….

    Staff and Mr. Staff – wow! Bet you will never feel the same way about the song “Come on Baby, Light My Fire”.

  71. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:05 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Exercise!…How come the Men gymnasts do not have to do their floor exercise to goofy music like the women have to?….grunt!

  72. SnowBella
    11:08 pm on July 30th, 2012

    I prefer the old fashion knee length swimming suits. Now, they really left something to the imagination.

    Rio: Do you think the swim team has something against plastic daisies?

  73. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:10 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Rebecca!…I think they have everything against plasic daisies…heh!

  74. Macy the Min-pin
    11:20 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Gilly, you naughty puppy!

  75. Tupper and Gilly
    11:24 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Rio – we get fed up with the foolishness of the men vs the women aspects of the Olympics. Like the swim suits. And the floor exercises. And how come themen don’t have to prance around with a long ribbon that they make ripple and curve. And the beach volleyball – how come the women are REQUIRED to wear bikinis? What if they don’t want to?

  76. Tupper and Gilly
    11:25 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Macy – tee hee

  77. AbbietheKitty
    11:28 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Well the firemen who were here said they were at home watching beach volleyball on the TV this morning. Heh. I guess it was warm enough for the bikinis today. They did mention that the other day the contestants were wearing long tee-shirts and pants.

  78. SnowBella
    11:29 pm on July 30th, 2012

    I think we should count ourselves lucky that Sage didn’t box up Gilly while she was in lala land.

  79. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:31 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Bikinis!…Today it must have been cold because the women were not wearing bikinis during the beach volleyvoll..sniff!

  80. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:33 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Correction!…It was a night game that we watched with Misty and Karrie earlier…sniff!….They had tees and longish pants on…grunt!

  81. AbbietheKitty
    11:35 pm on July 30th, 2012

    11:36 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Gee-Whiz!…The men are all over the place doing bad…grump!…What is up with these guys? I didn’t have high hopes for the team, but now we have almost NO hope…sniff!

  83. Macy the Min-pin
    11:43 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Just so you don’t think mom went down the kiddie slide, here it is, mercifully not including mom.

  86. SnowBella

    Macy: That looks fun and swim cap friendly. It could be the next olympic event!

  87. Macy the Min-pin
    11:57 pm on July 30th, 2012

    Bella, you should have seen mom’s dismount. The lifeguard even asked if she was ok, snicker.

  88. SnowBella
    12:01 am on July 31st, 2012

    Macy: That’s how you know you’re doing it right?

  89. Tupper and Gilly
    12:15 am on July 31st, 2012

    Bella – if the US men won bronze in the teeny tiny swimsuit, we wanna see the guys who won the gold!
