Dog Show Fun: From Thereby Hangs A Tail

The next day we went to the Great Western Dog Show at the Arena. I sat with Suzie, the whole place packed. And where was Bernie? Down on the floor with Princess! There were a whole bunch of tiny dogs, some fluffballs, some not, but I only had eyes for two – Babycakes, with Mr. Ganz, and Princess, with Bernie. They got paraded around one by one. Babycakes did her little move, one paw raised, waiting patiently to get going. What crap! Then, last, came Princess, running in her blurry-legged style, Bernie kind of shuffling along beside her.

“He’s adorable,” Suzie said in a quiet voice.

Huh? Who? What? Missed that completely.

Down on the floor, all the dogs waited at their stations, a human standing beside each one; only the humans looked nervous. Then a big, scary-looking old woman in black started walking slowly past each one, staring at them. Now my guys looked nervous, too. She spent an extra long time gazing at Babycakes, who raised her goddamn paw again, and at Princess, who stuck out her little pink tongue right in the scary woman’s face. And then – and then! The scary woman extended her arm and pointed right at Princess!

Applause. Clapping and cheering. Princess, now wearing a blue ribbon, took Bernie on a victory run. He had this huge smile on his face and she had her head up in that determined way. Had I ever seen anything so exciting? I wanted to be down there so bad.

Happy birthday, Lily!

    I love hearing about that wonderful day. My girl reads it to me over and over. I’m ready to play my Princess part when they make the movie.

    Here’s a picture of that shameless Babycakes.

    Not as Princess-y as our Sam.

    “And the next thing I knew I was! I ran around crazily. Princess got free and ran around with me. Then all of them–all those midgets–were on the loose. Somehow that blue ribbon got eaten, possibly by me. We went wild.”

    I love that endind! Go chet.

    Go Sam!

    Good morning all.

    Bee, oh yes, that’s my favorite part too! (Don’t tell anyone, but Mom gets tears in her eyes every time she reads it. She says it’s allergies but she seems to be fine the rest of the time.)

    Hi Wolfie. How are you?

  9. Wolfie
    9:50 am on February 10th, 2011

    Bee, thanks for asking about me. I’m doing fine. I understand how necessary it is for their growth, even if I don’t like it. The boys are staying with a friend, and I have sent a couple of checks for groceries. I know I shouldn’t, but my recovery is a work in progress. They need to get a job.

    10:01 am on February 10th, 2011

    Rio – did your friend get her test results back? And how are her knees doing?

    Bee – how are you feeling? Will you need any more treatments or did the mucus vacuum fix everything?

    Good morning.

    Sammie, every time I read about Princess, it is your face that I imagine. You ARE Princess.

  12. Sam
    10:03 am on February 10th, 2011

    I need hair extensions. You can see from this picture that I’m very Wonderfluffy.

    I was innocently going through Aunt Mollysmom’s purse and I almost had the chapstick. She asked what I was doing and I said “Nothing.”

    Breaking news: Mubarak is stepping down tonight. Hope that helps all the turmoil in Egypt.

    Happy Birthday, Lily. Our Lily is almost 9.

    Don’t be mad, Rio, but Justified was not a hit here. Watched for 15 minutes, couldn’t follow it, and it just didn’t click for us. Bee and Melanie, are you fans?

  19. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:58 am on February 10th, 2011

    MagPie!… I don’t care if you don’t like Justified or not. And it doesn’t surprise me that you couldn’t follow it….snort!….We are hoping it is ON Demand again this season. If it is I will be watching the premiere tonight….wooo!

  20. B.Stover
    11:04 am on February 10th, 2011

    I’ve never watched Justified but I’ll see if I have it On Demand.

    I’m so glad that Murbarak is finally stepping down. Thanks for the update B&M.

    Love that picture of Sam and Mollypop’s mom. Sam looks so innocent.

    This afternoon I have to go to the lung specialist. It’s just a check up and another test. I’m feeling better Wolfie. Thank you.

  21. B.Stover

    Love that picture of Sam and Mollypop’s mom. Sam looks so innocent.

    I have a comment awaiting moderation so I’m saying a few choice words here. Wolfie: I feel better. Thank you.

    11:06 am on February 10th, 2011

    Trying again: Going to doctor this afternoon for another test.

    11:06 am on February 10th, 2011

    Molly!… I like the part in that commercial where the guys face is looming large in the window right before he breaks the door down…heh!….I wonder how they pulled this stunt off anyways?…sniff!

  24. Mollypop
    11:37 am on February 10th, 2011

    Rio – Technology is wonderful. The pug’s reflection was added later. Notice how the door breaks down – the pug is standing on the door, sideways, as it comes down.

  25. Siber-H
    11:50 am on February 10th, 2011

    Sam, you don’t need hair extensions until the movie starts filming. You are far cuter than Babycakes. That is one unpleasant expression on Babycakes Face.
    Like Macy said, I always picture Sam when I read about Princess.

    I predict that Stover’s comment that is awaiting moderation will never show up on the blog.

    Rio, I would ask you the same two questions that Wolfie did, but he has already typed them.

  26. Siber-H
    11:51 am on February 10th, 2011

    Happy Birthday Lily!!!

    I finally got to see the Pug commercial. I will admitt that I didn’t watch any commercials as well as not watching halftime during the game. Rio, I want you to know that I voted for the pug commerical as the best one on my home page, even though I hadn’t seen it till today.

  28. Barb & Maggie
    12:14 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Rio, What do you mean,that you are not surprised that we could not follow the story line? I think there is an insult there somewhere. Sorry, but there were a bunch of shootouts, dead people lying around everywhere, and were they good guys or bad guys. Couldn’t tell.

  29. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:36 pm on February 10th, 2011

    MagPie!… Touchy, touchy!….snort!… If I wanted to insult you, you would not have to question it. The show is a continuing story, so in 15 minutes you would not be able to grasp what was going on in the story line… grump!

  30. Melanie
    12:40 pm on February 10th, 2011

    I have not watched “Justified”. In fact I have not heard of “Justified” until I was mentioned here.

    Happy Birthday Lily!!

    Hmm. Spent all morning trying to figure out why H’nR Square piece of wood wouldn’t do his NYC taxes on line. I’d like to think it was him, but . . . he had the same trouble last year and after paying more to talk to someone, he said we’d just have to send them in by snail mail.

    rolling eyes here.

    Rio – Has your friend’s salt-free-ness made any difference in her knee pain?

  33. Barb & Maggie
    1:04 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Ok, Rio, we understand what you meant. We thought being a season premier that it would explain things in the begining, so new viewers would catch up. Maybe we didn’t give it enough time.

    Last day of super cold here – last night was coldest of the season. Not sure exactly, but know it was lower than -10. Warmup starts by tomorrow. Mid 30s by Sunday. That is a 45-50 degrees difference! Balmy, by George!

  34. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:05 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Molly!… I don’t know. She’s grumpy as hell….snort!… She also found out that her Potash is low so now she is forced to eat a banana every day and other stuff to bring that up….snuff!…She said she has to go back to the doctor in 2 weeks, and then another blood test in 6 weeks….grump!…Right now, I just try to stay out of her way….sniff!

  35. Mollypop
    1:12 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Rio – Keep in mind the potassiun shaker called Nu-Salt.

  36. B.Stover
    1:21 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Melanie: I had to ponder “HnR square piece of wood” for a moment. Funny!

    I think the guy holding the Dorito bag is an ass but the pug is cute.

  37. Mollie (a black poodle)
    1:46 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Justified….Barb&Maaggie, sorry you didn’t like it. I think you have to read the background story before watching it.
    It is kind of violent, but the acting is good & I like Timothy O. He is so good in the part. Actually I like “Boyd” too. I liked the ending last night with Boyd saying “Fire in the Hole”, & then an explosion…

  38. Siber-H
    1:52 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Husky Rescue has taken in a Pug and a Siberian that were in the pound together. They are Best Friends Forever and must have been raised together. The male pug is adorable and the female Siberian is very pretty. They will be adopted out together and will not be seperated.
    Mom got all wooshy over this one.
    The Pug looks just like the Pug we all know and love.

    Cute pic of Aunt Molly and Sam.

    Siber, On the Chicago news yesterday they had on a lady who jumped in Lake Michigan and saved 2 dogs that had fallen in. A Pit and an Australian mix. Evidently someone was seen removing their collars and releasing them at the lake front (asshole). They they fell in and this young gal (who was walking her chocolate lab at the time), went in up to her neck and pulled them out. Now they are at a rescue center waiting for a forever home. Kudos to her.

    2:29 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Mollie!…Sounds like Boyd is up to his old tricks again…heh!….Can’t wait to see it tonight when someone finally gets home….grunt!

  41. Mollypop
    2:29 pm on February 10th, 2011

    A Siber-H/Rio combination!

  42. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:38 pm on February 10th, 2011

    SiberH!…Any photos of the two pals?….grunt!

  43. Siber-H
    2:46 pm on February 10th, 2011

    yeah, Go to Siberian Husky Rescue of New Mexico, scroll down to Available Dogs and click on that, when that page comes up, scroll down again till you come to “Harry and Sally.” They are really cute together!

    I do not know how to make a link for you. That is beyond me.

  44. Mollypop
    2:54 pm on February 10th, 2011

    This will get you to the page. Just scroll down. Too adorable for words.

    2:54 pm on February 10th, 2011

    SiberH!… Why doesn’t your ma and paw adopt them?…snort!….Sounds like Sally has the same hobby as you do….heh!

  46. Siber-H
    2:55 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Thanks Mollypop…Mollypop came through again!

  47. Siber-H
    2:57 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Rio, Because I like being an “only” dog just like you do. I get along really well with other dogs away from home, but mom has no idea how I would do with more canine family members, and I’m not telling her.

  48. Siber-H
    2:58 pm on February 10th, 2011

    You are right, though. Sally and I do have the same important hobby.

  49. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:10 pm on February 10th, 2011

    SiberH!….Think of all the fun you could have digging with Sally while Harry supervised….snort!…Your backyard would be one big crater!…heh!

  50. Siber-H
    3:47 pm on February 10th, 2011

    It already is one big crater, Rio. To explain further, mom says she is too old to be able to deal with more than one nitwit (Husky) at a time. I just talked to mom and dad and what they will do is pay for Harry and Sally’s room, board, and vet bills while they are in foster care. They are doing this in honor of me and you, Rio. We know the lady they are staying with….they are in good hands.

  51. Siber-H
    3:56 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Barb&Maggie, Good for that young lady that rescued the dogs. It would have been very cold.

    Why is Stover going for another test? Hope she is doing okay.

  52. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:57 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Awsome!…That is really great news. You have some good hearted folks there SiberH!… snort!…But pal, you are probably the reason they are aging so quickly though….chorkel!

  53. Mollypop
    4:08 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Oh Siber-H – Your Mom and Dad are so wonderful. Now my Mom is crying.

    Not that I wouldn’t want to see some docs in the frozen lake, but these are DOGS

  56. Mollypop
    4:20 pm on February 10th, 2011

    I have some docs I’ll throw in too, but any dogs must be rescued. Bless their hearts. Heroes.

  57. BARB & MAGGIE
    4:26 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Siber, Your Mom and Dad are wonderful. We looked at all the rescues, then made the mistake of reading the “How Could You” article we saw under the Puppy heading. OMG, Barb is blubbering. She shoud have never read that!

  58. Siber-H
    4:28 pm on February 10th, 2011

    I just read that article. Thank dog…that the story turned out the way it did. That was scary and very dangerous for both humans and dogs. Wish we could get our paws and teeth on the jerk that did this to those dogs.

  59. Siber-H
    4:33 pm on February 10th, 2011

    yeah, Maggie, Mom only read that once a long time ago. Everyone, do not read the article Maggie is talking about. Mom blubbered non-stop.
    Mom said she didn’t even know that it was still on the website.

  60. BARB & MAGGIE
    4:57 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Melanie, Thank you for posting the link on the Lake Michigan rescue.

  61. Mollypop
    5:25 pm on February 10th, 2011

    MagPie! Please send the warmer weather right away. Mom, the snow lover, has been pushed over the edge with this never-ending bitter cold.

  62. BARB & MAGGIE
    5:31 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Mollypop, Warmer weather should be coming soon. It is starting here tomorrow, mid to upper 30s on Sunday, and continuing into next week. That should help. You are probably a day or 2 behind us, so just hold on a bit.

  63. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:36 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Warmth!….We are supposed to get warm air this weekend so that means some of you will get that too!…snort!…Agent Molly, check your super secret message device at once!….grunt!

  64. Mollypop
    6:34 pm on February 10th, 2011

    You guys may say warmer but there’s a guy on TV who says there’s a frigid wind chill. Can we hold on?

  65. Melanie
    6:35 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Yummers . . .
    I went to our gluten free baker’s and got the bread, biscuits and cookies. Then she showed me the cherry cake.

    WOW. I should have taken a picture. She had called the house and talked to Zoë to make sure she had the right date to pick up and told Zoë about the cake and Zoë decided the heck with Valentine’s Day, we were starting the cake TODAY!

    She got out some small steaks and we had an artichoke salad and CAKE.

    Pink frosting (I thought of Sam) with chocolate bark on top and the three layers of cherry cake that was moist, and full of goodness.

    Yummers.

    I don’t think the cake will last very long.

  66. Mollypop
    6:38 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Mom is speaking incoherently, well certainly more than usual. I think she has finally had it with living in the Arctic. Oh wait, that’s C.Harris.

  67. B.Stover
    6:52 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Mollypop: You can hold on. It was minus ten wind chill (minus three temp) here today but the sun was out. It is supposed to warm up this weekend…40….I may have to get my bathing suit out.

    SH: You have wonderful people.

    Back from doctor. All biopsies were negative. She didn’t take another test but wants the allergist to check further for mold allergies. (Scratch test). She is not putting me on steroids. I’m feeling much better.

  69. Melanie
    6:54 pm on February 10th, 2011

    When I went to the baker’s, she came out of her house and said, “I hate this place!”

    Everyone here, except for the skiers, are hating this weather. She is going on vacation. I want to go with her. She is going on a cruise somewhere warm. She will be waited on.

    Wimper . . .

  70. Mollypop

    Here it is so bad that the skiers all have face masks on!

  72. Kirby T. Penworthy
    7:16 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Hey y’all! Sorry I haven’t been on the blog lately — I’ve been busy trying to write a jingle for Nagila Beer and not having much luck. I think the problem is that I’ve never had a beer — it’s hard to write about a product you’ve never even tried! So I think I’m going to give up — writing that sestina was much easier!

    Anyway — just so you know — even when I don’t get a chance to write, Mom keeps track of what’s happening. It’s just that sometimes she gets busy after work and doesn’t always turn the computer on for me. Luckily, I’ll be around the next couple of days, but then Mom and Dad are going away for the weekend, so I probably won’t be able to write then either. My boy will be here to take care of me, but I doubt he’ll remember to turn the computer on!

  73. B.Stover
    7:23 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Hi Kirby.

    The cake sound lovely Melanie. We had dinner at a Chinese restaurant but now I’m hungry……

  74. Melanie
    7:30 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Hi Kirby T. Penworthy, the two hundredth seventy eighth!
    Did you get that last snow storm? We were supposed to, but it went south of us.

    B.Stover: Laughing here.

  75. Siber-H
    7:43 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Hey and Hi, Kirby

    Stover, I’m glad you are feeling better.

    I can probably make you guys feel better about your cold weather. By day 7, they had the natural gas turned back on for most of NM, but now there are broken pipes and flooded homes and businesses all over the state.
    We were very fortunate to have had none of those problems.

  76. Melanie
    8:06 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Jeez Louise, Siber-H: Broken pipes and flooded homes and businesses . . . just not ready for that weather.

    A friend of ours, near Boston, had part of her apartment roof collapse. In our area, we’ve had several barns, near one hundred years old, collapse under the weight of the snow.

    I don’t think anyone was ready for this winter.

    Hey, MollyPop, got a couple of masks you can send this way?

  77. dawson
    8:10 pm on February 10th, 2011

    All the warm weather is up here. It’s 40 degrees (F) and the sun just went down. Almost t-shirt weather. We all thank you Yankees for trading with us.
    Siber H. You are so kind hearted. Harry and Sally are an odd couple.
    Melanie: I’ll go check out the dogs in lake link.
    Stover: That’s good news on the “negative” results.

  78. Melanie
    8:25 pm on February 10th, 2011

    So YSAS going from BE to being a lowly coat check clerk today and tomorrow. Guess which pays better?

    Good night all, I know it’s early, but Jeez I’m tired.

    Waiting for that warm weather to head our way.

    TTFN

    Stover!…. I’m skipping, I’m skipping…heh!… I’m so happy and relieved that you are getting tip-top and the dreaded tests came back good!…I’m skipping, I’m skipping and now I’m twirling, I’m twirling…woooo!…Now I’m dizzy, I’m dizzy….whoa…

    Fan!… Ummm… We here are watching The Fan and we are trying to believe our eyes and ears, all four of them… snort!…They, Hollywood, took that story and shredded it to pieces with one of Gil’s very sharp knives. How heartbreaking. (sob!)… snarl!… I can only imagine The Charming Mr. Abrahams sitting in the theater during the premier cringing with horror… sniff!… Or not, maybe he was smart and washed his hands of it after he sold it… grunt!… Either way, it is very hard to watch after you’ve read the amazing book….grump!….It’s like they bought the story and then re-wrote it in a very bad way…heh!…I think the movies that stick closest to the original story are always the best. Although, there is one exception I can think of off the top of my noggin which is LA Confidential. I read the book and watched the movie and the movie was far better than the book….snort!

  83. Siber-H
    9:00 pm on February 10th, 2011

    I was afraid of this about the movie The Fan. I imagine that the customers on Amazon who were giving the movie decent reviews NEVER read the book.

    9:07 pm on February 10th, 2011

    Dawson – The ski slopes have changed. Some people still wear the old black bank robber mask, but most now like to make a statement.

    I don’t want to see anyone in a beardski mask. It looks gross.

    What kind of statement is the guy with the ski beard making?

    Thank you Rio (and everyone). Hope you are no longer dizzy.

    Dawson!… It is ZZ Top all the way!…heh!… I still think it’s funny. I mean those other ski masks are a lot scarier to me….snort!

    $39.95 for that mask, plus S&H. That’s a lot of moola!

    Bee, glad the tests came out OK.

    Siber H: I’m scanning the Yukon Quest site and I thought there was a Don Schoen-something or other that was from your neck of the woods and racing your kind. Was I imagining it? I can’t find any reference to him at all. I should’ve written his name down.

    Mollypop: it is getting colder up here so you should be getting warmer. I went to doctor and I have a bit of pneumonia. Not bad as I had been forcing air into my lungs so there was just one spot of pneumonia. I have a prescription for some kind of augmented antibiotics which seemed to make the pharmacist sternly talk to me about taking with food and what the side effects could be. Resting and then going to figure out something to eat so I can take the medicine.

    I ready for winter to be done {{{{sigh}}}} Three months to go.

    Hey!… Justified didn’t show up on On Demand tonight. (sob!sob!sob!)…but we found Hot In Cincinnati ….heh!…We love Betty White and are watching one of the specials they did recapping the first year which we missed entirely. …grunt!…It might end up being too sit-comish for us, we are not sure yet…sniff!

    Dawson, No, I don’t believe so. I’ve been following the race closely. Mike Ellis is running a team of Siberians, but he and his dogs have already proved themselves in the Quest in years past. They came in 9th once, which is really good. He says he and his dogs are just out to have fun this time. Hank Debruin is also running a team of Siberians, but all we hope for him is to finish safely and not come in last or have to scratch.
    Hugh Neff and his dogs (Alaskan Huskies) are just flying down the trail. It is getting very interesting.

    Siber H. I must’ve been dreaming. I saw it the night of the Supper Bowl so could’ve been sleep deprivation hallucinations. I may have been on a Yukon Quest site from some previous year.
    It is a very close race so far.

    Siber-H: thank you. I was reluctant to spend $250 for a 15-minute appointment only to be told I was doing everything right and that I was almost well. However, I finally figured out that I wasn’t going to be 100% without medical intervention.

    Siber H: I see the race is not that close…I’m new at reading the race results. :-)
    C.Harris: I’m so glad you went to the doctor and shocked at the cost. You could have bought about 6 red bearded ski masks for that.

    Dawson, the Yukon Quest is more difficult to follow on the internet than the Iditarod, so it can be hard to figure out what is going on. They are very slow to update their Leaderboard. The upside is, unlike the Iditarod, the videos and tracking are free.
