Dog Years

“How old is Chet, by the way?” says Admin.

“It never says,” says Spence.

“I know that. But since you’re right here … “

“And I ain’t talkin’.”

Note: Still working on a fix for the Friends gallery. No uploading possible at this time.

    Good morning, everyone! What an interesting article. Knew the 7 year wasn’t quite true but didn’t have that info. Thanks OFA. Hobbit off, Dawson home, Nana getting wet in MO. Hopefullly everyone else is home and happy and healthy.
    Mmmm? Since we got a factual post, have a fun, fact-filled Friday.

    What an interesting article!

    I am going to help my friend Fran study trivia today. She is taping “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire” next week.

    Safe travels to all who are, and for those who are home, enjoy the day!

    I have seen that chart at our vet’s office. Should copy and keep it as a reference. Very interesting.

    Off today so going to work on the garden a bit. Found a place that has some lovely horse poop, so going to go pick up a couple of tubs of it and spread it on the garden beds. Howlers are lucky they have their own horse poop AND chicken poop.

    Hope Nana is having a good time in St.Louis.

    Chet is ageless. (I want to say, Chet “is not of an age but for all time” but, of course, “age” means something different in that quotation.) The article is interesting but needs an editor.

    Good morning all.

    I don’t think Chet is ever going to get old. We agree with Bee that Chet is ageless.

    Rose!…I hope you let us know when that show will be airing on TV. I for one would like to see your friend win!win!win!…wheeze!…Then you can hit her up for a big donation to Snowhook….heh!heh!heh!

    By the way, I was quoting Ben Jonson in my earlier comment. He said that about Shakespeare. (Now I feel better…. Not sure why….)

    10:39 am on October 10th, 2014

    Maggie, the things that make your Barb happy! Horse and chicken poop???????

    Chet will be like Tara in the Andy Carpenter books…never age and never die.

    I wonder if Gus and I made the 2015 calendar or if we will be in the 2016 one.

    Mom will have to find a place for this calendar and for the Snowhook calendar. She move a large picture from its spot in a hallway and is planning on doing a Snowhook picture arrangement. It should look like Pottery Barn but with the Snowhook dogs and the giants in the photos.

    Good Bootie Morning all, I am sure Rio will appreciate this. We have a bootie announcement to make. We had another donation early this morning. Long before I was awake. Our bootie fund is now at 575 dollars which is 1/3 of the way to our goal!

    I wonder if we will have green booties again this year? I did like being able to tell Justin’s team by the bootie color when I looked at pictures last year.

    AND we also have another donation to the matching funds so our matching fund amount is at 115 and we are happy to help you double your donations in that way.


    We did have a winner of the lovely butterfly pin from Golinka and she will be notified of the winner. If I get an OK from the winner I will let Rio the Curious (and the rest of you) know who it is.

    Calm down Pug.

    RIO! Since I am helping her study, I am sure she will let me know the airdate.

    BooBear:(whispering)You and Gus are on the May page. It is one of my favorite pages. I know your mom will love it.
    Just so your mom can plan ahead, the calendar measures 8 1/2 x 11.

    This is the beautiful porcelain butterfly pin that was won when the bootie tally hit 482.

    The next bootie prize will come before the 115 matching funds are depleted.

    Just sayin’

    Rose, the amount we send you is $20, right? That amount includes your postage?

  19. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    12:09 pm on October 10th, 2014

    Boobear, Yes, Barb is absolutely elated over that wonderful horse s**t. She filled 3 storage tubs and 3 5-gal buckets. You would think she brought home gold from the way she is acting. It is well aged so it is not the least bit stinky.

    12:29 pm on October 10th, 2014

    B,M & L: Yes, $20 should do it.

    4:27 pm on October 10th, 2014

  39. Siber-H
    4:36 pm on October 10th, 2014

    Meashka, Of course I still have your pin-up picture. You should darn well be on the cover of the 2016 calendar. Shame on your mom for not sending your picture in this year.

    Rio! The game starts at 6 pm our time. It is on TBS….Baltimore and Kansas City.

    This is Bluecat’s special day! We are very happy for that lovely feline.

    Mom didn’t wan us Howlers to monopolize the calendar, so she only sent photos when asked. She promised to send my lovely self next time. I am, after all,the lovliest of The Howlers. Oh yes I am. How do I know? Mom tells me every single day.

  45. Mollypop's Mom
    5:05 pm on October 10th, 2014

    Loulou had a bad time today with two Kats. I took her to a new groomer and there were four large rescue Kats and a Great Dane who were the groomer’s pets. When we first got there, a large Kat was posed on the half-wall. Little Loulou was way down on the floor, but the Kat easily reached down and batted her on the snoot. Loulou was indignant. Then when I came to pick her up, another Kat was under a chair and Loulou put her head down to sniff. Lots of hissing and another bop on the snoot.

    Loulou’s grooming was beautiful and we will continue to go to that groomer. Loulou will hopefully learn to adjust.

    Rio – sorry. I’m an only child. I’m honored to be Ms. January
    and can’t wait to see the rest of my BFFs (including you, you, you!)

    Mom thought about Plunderers every time she saw a butterfly this season; they were everywhere. She’s excited to have the pin with a purple butterfly from Golinka’s collection.

    Onward Snowhook!

  47. Herd of Hounds

  51. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    6:25 pm on October 10th, 2014

    Barb just got back from the liquor store. Sure hope she likes pumpkin ale, because it was $10.00 for a four-pack. The guy who waited on her said this was the best one, in his opinion. Not chilled, so she will try it tomorrow night.

    Just made a pot of chili. Perfect weather for it. Our chili probably is too mild for Rio’s friend, who seems to like a little more heat than wussy Barb does.

    Barb picked up an extra day at work next week. Good thing as she is feeling mighty poor these days. She won’t even look at her mutual fund accounts now days, with the markets in the toilet.

    Have we heard from Diane this week?

  52. Herd of Hounds
    6:42 pm on October 10th, 2014

    No, we have not heard from mom’s friend. Where is Diane? We want to know where the twin sis from a different mother is.

  53. Siber-H
    6:43 pm on October 10th, 2014

    I’ve also been wondering about Diane.

    I’m glad Zeta and Teddy will be together on the calendar.

  54. ML
    6:50 pm on October 10th, 2014

    Barb, I sure wish I had you here to help me make a decision. I called in a financial planner and started moving money around willy-nilly. Then I discovered that Rick already had a guy that he had been working with through the city. He doesn’t want me to be moving the money around nilly or willy. I don’t know what to do now. I already moved my Home Depot money and maybe my IRAs. I wish that I could just hit the do over button and put everything back like it was. sigh

    What kind of pumpkin ale did Barb get?
    Mom is home alone, eating a pitifully tiny “dinner”, with no beer and no wine.
    Pop is at that birthday party she told youse about awhile ago. Heh!

    Did you guys see Chet’s facebook post on the right? !!!!!

  60. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    7:11 pm on October 10th, 2014

    Barb here – I bought Dogfish Head Punkin Ale. Have you tried that one? It is somewhat sweet and spicy, according to John at Armanentti’s Liqours.

    ML, don’t do anything else till you are sure of your decisions. It is best to work with a Financial Planner who has the CFP designation, and one who is fee based. That means he/she works for a flat charge, and doesn’t get a commission every time they buys or sells for you. If they are working on commissions, then it is to their advantage to trade your account more, although not necessarily to your advantage.

  61. O'Howlers
    7:20 pm on October 10th, 2014

    Mom has never had Dogfish Head’s pumpkin ale, though they make good ales. Her favorite pumpkin is Weyerbacher.

  62. dawson
    7:25 pm on October 10th, 2014

    O’Howlers: I’m howling with laughter at your post to Barb at 7:02! And then she brings the Pumkin Ale up again less than 10 minutes later!

    Barb: Quit growing okra!

  63. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    7:27 pm on October 10th, 2014

    OMD, When we submitted, and then read Howlers post we felt absolutely horrible. AND then to ask if you tried the kind of ale we just bought! We are so sorry!

    And maybe you are being too hard on yourself. Natalie Morales said on the Today show that she tries to abstain Sunday night-Thursday, and then allow herself drinks on Friday and the weekend. What do you think of that idea?

    And regarding your link-we have never tried okra. Good thing, or we might have the TFA guys showing up here. I bet HOH has eaten okra since she lives in the south and pretends she is a southern gal, instead of a California Girl. I have heard the fried okra is really good.

    My best win, though was an “honorable mention” in one of Spencer’s quizzes back in the old days. I think Wookie won the prize. There were a few questions regarding the books and then a question on boxing. We had a certain amount of time to submit our answers then Spence picked the winner. Great fun!

    For those who did not make the 2015 calendar, and I know there are many, I have big plans for the 2016 calendar, so remember to send your pictures to me, me, me.

    Rio, even my VBF, Belle Starr and my mama, Luna did not make the calendar because I did not have their pictures. :^(

    Hi everyone. Once again, just catching up at the end of the day.

    Congrats to Cats Near and Far (just not our Wrotten ones). Yay, BlueKat!! Yippee, Catty Librarian!

    Mama has yet to get her act together to send Barb’s snowflake earrings. But now, she has two packages to get in the mail, plus maybe another one for someone special. So, she says she will get on the stick. Why she would want to be on a stick, we have no idea. Sounds painful to us.

    We are THRILLED to be the July centerfolds. Mama’s birthday is in July, and she always says that calendars never have a great picture for that month. Well, this coming year, July will ROCK!

    Thanks to all of you who have emailed and messaged and thought about brother. He is still in the hospital, and the doctors are not very hopeful for a recovery. It is very hard on Mama as she is there a couple of times a day, plus she has to take care of things like wills, and power of attorney and bill paying etc, and on and on. But the Creator is in charge. We can only go along on the path that is intended. And sometimes paths take sudden turns. It’s all a mystery, isn’t it?

    I read a few different theories working on this post. Most of them found my 2 year old medium sized dog to be 21-24 in dog years, Based on the 7 dog years to a human year theory I thought we should be throwing her a Bark-Mitzvah. I guess a bar crawl would have been more age appropriate for her after all.
