Dogs Of A Night To Remember (Revised)

“One hundred years ago today,” Spence says. “There were at least ten and possibly twelve dogs on board the Titanic. And it’s usually said that three survived. According to the curator of an exhibit at Widener University – “

“A Titanic name,” says Admin.

” – the three were two Pomeranians and a Pekinese named Sun Yat-Sen (owned by the Harpers of Harper and Row). But that doesn’t account for a Newfoundland named Rigel. See the contemporaneous clipping below from the New York Herald, April 21, 1912 (hat tip – Melanie; and also  belated happy birthday! And happy birthday to Rio!). But no mention of Rigel in the linked story! Kind of a puzzler. Maybe we can get to the bottom of this.”

“As it were.”

Note: It now appears that the Rigel story is pure legend of the feel-good kind. The link above is accurate – three dogs, all small, survived. Time to quote Emily Litella.

    Sad about the nine dogs that didn’t make it, and also the lady that died with her Great Dane.

    Good morning and adios amigos and amigas. Off to the burbs for the day. Glad everyone had a good time last night. Taking eggs from the happy hens and rhubarb from the garden. Have a great day everyone. BBML

    Godd Morning All!

    Sounds like a rocking’ time was had by all!

    Rio: Sorry, I was not there to partake in the fun and the punch ! After having had some electricity shot into my brain on Friday, I was not feeling tip- top yesterday.

    I never knew about the dogs on the Titanic before this year.

    Helton did it again for the Rockies last night. They need to win again today for Rio’s birthday.

    la la la I made it through the birthday party without Natasha getting pissed off at me.

    What happened at Rio’s house stays at Rio’s house.

    11:24 am on April 15th, 2012

    Happy birthday to my best pal Rio. You throw one heckuva party too. Mystery about what happened to Alice though. And wasn’t it great that Helton gave you a walk-off homer as a birthday present. What a guy. Wookie

    Good Happy Birthday Computer Getting Day!

    We have finished the walk/run. The Pack is pooped. Hot for us in April. 65 degrees. We are not going to talk about the heat for the next two days.

    Zoë and I went to the 5 family yard sale down the street. We were looking for a mirror for Dan. SCORE! She wouldn’t let me get ANYTHING else. (I did sneak in a Martha Grimes when she wasn’t looking).

    Dan is at my sister’s church and they are having a lunch so he’s gone for awhile. Bet he takes a long nap when he gets home.

    I’ve had a slice of left over BD cake! Should be crashing in a few ZZZZZZ

    The cast of the play series had a get together last night. They had some fun with the stage blood. That is Hamlet’s fist and YSAS face.

  19. Masquers
    12:19 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Melanie! Egads. It looks REAL.
    Rose: What’s this I hear…not feeling tip top? Are you okay today?
    Siber: I hope you didn’t have to go to extremes to get back in Natty’s good graces last night.

  20. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    12:21 pm on April 15th, 2012

    I wonder if Alice is still in the laundry room?

  21. Melanie
    12:41 pm on April 15th, 2012

    YSAS is very good at Prat falls and stage combat. In fact, he’s gotten people very upset when he falls. Of course, that doesn’t count the time that he and Hamlet slipped on the wet pavement and ended up in the hospital.

    Snicker, he got a date by accident last night. One of the new attractive cast members said she had to go, and YSAS said, Oh, that’s too bad, you should hang out with us. Except she didn’t hear the “with us” and gave him her phone number.

    Interesting how flights follow the curvature of the Earth.

    No.#1 son’s flight arrived in Tokyo an hour early, at 3:33 pm. Thank Dog! We couldn’t have stayed awake on moment longer!
    Since he probably got some snooze-time on the plane, the 16 hour time difference shouldn’t be too much of a problem. We here slept in.

    Hey everyone –

    That was indeed quite a party last night. Siber – did Natasha like the looks of your “truck”? tee hee

    Mama and Dad went tag saling this morning too. No score there, but she did get a whole armload of free books at the recycling center.

    So, now she is off to work on her bear. She won’t let us help because she is using the power sander and there is going to be fiberglass dust EVERYWHERE!

    And she says she will be so happy when all the coverage of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of that big ship is over. Her stomach has been in knots for days – she won’t even turn the tv on – and them she gets to this here blog and…..gahhhhh!

    anyway – see ya all later

    AJ, get outa that laundrey room! There is a quick way out thru that screen I ripped open.

    Melanie: What do they use for blood?

  26. Snowhook Bella
    1:46 pm on April 15th, 2012

    I asked a question last night about Belle Starr getting on the roof. When I woke up this morning I asked a similar question by replaced ‘Belle Starr’ with ‘I.’. The details are a little fuzzy of how it happened. I could see Annabelle and AJ curled up in an easy chair sleeping, not to be woken despite my attempts. In the end, Rio, your neighbor was very nice and didn’t ask too many questions as they brought a ladder round so Belle Starr and I could climb down. Where was Luna in all this—-the one I put in charge? Good question. It seems she spent the evening with Patsy discussing shifts to keep Melanie sniffly under the quilt.

    Happy birthday, Rio! And, happy day after to Melanie!

  27. OleyHowlers
    2:02 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Happy Birthday, Rio.

    We are off to give Shiek a bath.

  28. Snowhook Bella
    2:05 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Buddy: it seems AJ took your advice to get out of the laundry room by way of the window. One problem. He is a lot bigger that you what with the shoulders and the height. In the end had to, um, enlarge the window a bit. Luckily, he is never without his tools—no, not even at a party—so the job was easy enough. He put it back as good as new and, tired from the effort and Annabelle tired from supervising said effort, they promptly found and easy chair in the yard and took a nap.

    2:57 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Plans!…Change of plans! No computer shopping today. Its too cold and windy and someone decided we can limp along one more week with this old thing. Although, she might stop on her way home one night and do some pricing…snort!…Everyone was busy rounding Beau up for his trip to the Groomer when Alice, AJ and all the others were ushered out the basement window to safety…heh!…What a party! I didn’t even know about it until it was over this morning…chorkel!

    Birthday!…Hey! Thanks for all the good birthday wishes…snort!…Youse guys are the best!…heh!…Now the Rockies are going to play a game just for me!me!me! and Win!Win!Win!…Wooooooo!

  30. Masquers
    2:57 pm on April 15th, 2012

    B&M: You rushed off so quickly this morning we didn’t even have a chance to wish Lily a Happy 10th.
    Thankfully yesterday’s tornadoes were not in your vicinity.
    O.Howlers: Will your mom be able to take Shiek for rides on occasion? I can just see him champing at the bit in anticipation of such.
    Rebecca & AJ: Good news about the truck being back on the road!

  31. Masquers
    2:59 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Melanie: I would like to know the answer to B’s question also.

  32. Melanie
    3:05 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Sniffly Melanie here. snicker!
    Snowhook Bella please check SDD. And yes, that first one is from me. Carpola.

  33. Melanie
    3:08 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Okay, I will answer the blood question. As soon as he’s done with the show. He’s got a matinee today.

    I have finished working the compost. I think we will have a caffeine and hard cider compost. We did the walk / run. In fact, I think I’ve done everything I was going to do except the Katty willows. I’m doing those on the other side of the river. More sun and closer to the water. we had fisher people though and I didn’t want to get in their way.

  34. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    3:33 pm on April 15th, 2012

    I know that you can buy fake blood at costume shops at Halloween. My boys used it by the gallon. Sometimes they would rip their clothes, cover themselves with fake blood, and lie down on the road. They couldn’t figure out why everyone laughed as they drove by.

    Mom almost misses those days.

  35. Steve
    4:21 pm on April 15th, 2012

    HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAYS! We just got back from Disney World, in Florida, where we we lucky enough to arrange a get together with my Service Dog’s puppy raiser, Lynn.

  36. Rose
    4:25 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Masquers: Thanks for asking after my health. I feel much better today, unfortunately, I will have to go through this all over again this Friday.

  37. Steve
    4:28 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Lynn and Moe

    4:31 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Willie!…Mayes day!..snort!snort!…Everyone is wearing number 42…woooooo!

    Rain!…Thank goodness it is raining here and not at the ballpark…grunt!…Even a little hail. Thunder and hail does not affect Beau in the slightest. My friend says this is a Blessing, because two scardy kats would be too much….huh??

  39. OleyHowlers
    4:32 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Masquers, Mom will ride Shiek once he loses all his oodles and oodles of fur. Step 1 was the bath. Step 2 is a bodyclip which may possibly happen tomorrow. In the meantime, we are expecting 89 degrees tomorrow!!!!! We are all going to die. The horses and the howlers all still have our fur coats on!

  40. OleyHowlers
    4:35 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Great picture,Steve! Was Moe happy to see Lynn? How was Disney World? We’ve never been there. You missed a heck of a party last night, Dude!

  41. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:35 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rose!…I sure hope you feel better soon…sniffle!…I hate to think of what you have to go through…gasp!…Its not like lightning going through your head, is it???…shudder!

  42. Rose
    4:47 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rio: Thanks for your concern. It could be like lightning going through my head, but I don’t know because I’m asleep when I go through the procedure. A very good thing…..

  43. Basil and Sage
    4:47 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Will you all please keep the noise level down….owww, our aching heads.

    Just a little hint for the rest of you to file in your information banks:
    NEVER mix boot rear floats with Redbone punch….

    ow ow ow ow ow……

  44. Masquers
    4:55 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rose: Will you need one of us to come by to lend a paw? or at the very least a shoulder to lean on.
    Steve: Welcome back! Great photo of Moe and Lynn at Disney World. Looks like a good time was had by all.
    Rio: We always stick close by mom during a storm. But this is only to protect her, you understand. I’m not a fraidy-kat myself (about storms) It’s that other guy that freaks out at the first sign of thunder.
    Basil&Sage: Okay, okay…I’ll shush.

  45. Macy the Min-pin
    4:56 pm on April 15th, 2012

    How does one shave a horse? Very carefully.

    Even though I never made it to the party, last night was one to remember…*swoon*.

    HB to Melanie and “the pugaroo”.

  46. Macy the Min-pin
    5:05 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Actually, I got to the party too early and I was not sure that I was in the right place.

  47. Snowhook Bella
    5:08 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Steve: Welcome back.

    Rose: Belle Starr wants me to tell you that she is packing her sparkly pink backpack and will be blurring her way to you in two shakes of a Newf’s tail.

  48. BearSpiritDog
    5:12 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Macy: Yes, we all know…you had your own party last night.
    btw. that’s a very cute photo of you.

  49. Siber-H
    5:43 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Welcome back Steve!

    I think it is a good idea if Belle Starr goes to look after Rose. Mom and I would feel better about it.

    Macy, That hole you are in was dug by an amateur…not me

  50. Rose
    6:24 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Masquers, thanks for offering. Seems like Belle Starr is on the way. Maybe she can pick you up on the way.

  51. Masquers
    6:38 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rose: My little backpack is ready to go!

  52. Macy the Min-pin
    6:41 pm on April 15th, 2012

    You are correct Mr. Husky. I got to the party before you dug your hole, or I actually WAS in the wrong place.

  53. Masquers
    6:45 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rose: (whispering) Do you think Belle Starr will mind sharing with a kat? She has made it her mission to make sure you are well taken care of. I don’t want to intrude on her territory.

  54. Riö – The Evil Pug
    7:00 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Pugarooo!…heh!snort!heh!….Now theres a guy I could drink punch with…chorkel!

  55. Riö – The Evil Pug
    7:05 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Steak!…yum!…No, wait. Not steak. That was the original plan, but everything has changed because its cold and windy and nobody wants to go outside to grill or even go to a restaurant…heh!…So my friend is making Lasagna…WOOOOOOOO!… Her lasagna is the best ever!ever!ever! in the history of the world…snorkel!…Beau is watching the oven as I type!…snort!

  56. Snowhook Bella
    7:19 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Masquers: Belle Starr and Luna will stop by and pick you up before going to Rose. As usual, I have put Luna in charge.

  57. Rose
    7:40 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rebecca: I guess there will be no on- line shopping.
    Masquers, I am so pleased that you are coming!

    Oops, I believe I hear the scratch of paws at the door…..I’ll be right there!

  58. Snowhook Bella
    7:43 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rose: It seems that they are right on schedule. If you’re up to online browsing, I have no qualms. It’s when Belle Starr pulls a debit card out of her pink sparkly backpack with my name on it that causes problems.

    Masquers: Belle Starr has never seen a kat. She probably thinks you are a different brand of dog.

    Rose again: Rest up. You are in good paws.

  59. Rose
    7:46 pm on April 15th, 2012

    The best paws ever!

  60. Melanie
    7:49 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rose, I have had a good day so I’m outside of the quilt right now. I left some pecan pie and left over birthday cake under there. Take care.


    It is made by a make up company called Ben Nye and it’s corn starch and red dye.

  61. Melanie
    7:50 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Umm Bella? Check SDD?

  62. Snowhook Bella
    7:56 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Melanie: Have checked and working on your request right now. I had to take a break to get someone’s pink sparkly backpack off the top shelf in the closet, but I’m back to work.

  63. Melanie
    7:57 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Snort! I KNOW that you borrow that pink sparkly backpack every once in awhile! Franklin got the proof!

    8:12 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Melanie!…Hi Fellow Birthdayer…heh!…I hear you are feeling better today…snort!…Glad to hear it! Glad to hear it!…Woooo!… I just had a bite or two of lasagna and I am feeling Tip Top Lollipop!…heh!…That is some awsome pie. If we ever do another Dishlickers Cookbook I think I will submit that recipe!…snort!

  66. Snowhook Bella
    8:12 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Melanie: Please check your SDD.

  67. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:16 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Boutique!…This talk of Dishlickers Bowl Two, reminds me of another thing…grunt!…Are all of you working on or at least thinking about your contributions to the Spring Boutique?…snort!…The deadline for the grand opening is less than a month and a half away!…yeep!….My friend better get with it by golly…sniff!…Once she finishes this last “paying” project she is all about making stuff for the Boutique!…snorkel!

  68. Alice M. Johnson
    8:47 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Staff has been thinking about stuff for the booteek. She has it all packed away for her trip back to the farm. Now if she can only find it there once it is all unpacked!.

    I have been laying quietly between Mr.Staff’s feet as it is raining really hard and I don’t like that at all. If it starts to lightning and thunder I will slink into the closet way back in the dark. It is the safest place.

    Rose, thinking of you and your lightning bolts. Hope all is better soon.

  69. T.C.
    8:52 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rose, I’m sorry to hear about your lightning bolts. I don’t like lightning. Hope you feel better soon. Masquers and Belle Starr will take good care of you.

  70. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:54 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Alice!…You should have stayed in the laundry room…snort!…It really dark in there…heh!

  71. Snowhook Bella
    8:56 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rose: Tenzing has determined that the best cure for lightening bolts is to put one’s head underneath the bed. I pointed out that the rest of him remains unprotected by the bed. He says, “Nonsense.”

  72. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:01 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Staff!…I am supposed to tell you that my friend has learned how to make a Peonia…sniff!….She says it is a lot of work and twirls completely backwards from how a rose is made…grunt!…So it took some practice today to come up with four good Peonias…wuffle!sneeze!

  73. Snowhook Bella
    9:18 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Below is a text I just received from Belle Starr:

    Just got Rose tucked under quilt and sat on her head 2 keep her still. Never seen a dog like Masquers. Mama told me she will xplain when im older.

  74. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:36 pm on April 15th, 2012

    B.Starr!…She sure types good with all those sparkley rings on her toes…heh!heh!…I want to sleep beside Rose tonight- Maskers move over!…grunt!…Wait! I can’t leave my yard…dammit!

    Justified….Quote from the show tonight….snort!…”Yer just…stupid. Yer just a stupid cravin’ hillbilly piece of shit. Hell, maybe getting tossed around like a pool-toy in the Federal Pen is just the remedy you need…. At least ya got yer health.”…snort!

  75. Snowhook Bella
    10:00 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rio: With everything the Plunderers have accomplished, I can’t believe we haven’t figured out a sustainable solution around that little yard rule.

  76. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:05 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Quote!…I guess I should not quote that show, but the dialog is amazing. You have to be there to know the context of the content…heh!…Its riddled with humor but hard to get the humor if you don’t know the charactors…grunt!

    Rules!…What is it Dawson says all the time?….sniff!…”Rules are meant to be broken”…heh!heh!…Rebecca, once we used a blow-up pug doll to fill in as me when I just had to be somewhere…wheeze!…That seemed to work, but it took me ages to blow that thing up with my limited air-supply…cough!

  77. Alice M. Johnson
    10:14 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Check the pug SDD please.

  78. Snowhook Bella
    10:19 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Rio: It just so happens that I have a pump I use to blow up my raft. We can make quick work of your stunt double.

    I’m still pondering what to do for the MMSB. I have items that are better suited for an auction, but I think I’m circling in on an idea for the MMSB.

  79. Wolfie Wigglebutt

    Mom is making some pretty birds for the booteeke. She won’t let the Kats play with them which is a good thing.

    Tip top lollipop. Love it!

  80. Staff
    10:30 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Will we get to see pictures of the Peonia?

  81. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:31 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Alice!…I’m not in the mood for your Kat-Nipping tonight!…grunt!…And if I check my SDD my old computer will freeze up. So someone here says unless it is an emergency – no can do…huffle!puffle!

  82. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:36 pm on April 15th, 2012

    Staff!… Once this full-bloom project is completed, I have been informed that there will be photos…grunt!…Right now she is struggling with the color concept and time-frame…heh!heh!…She pissed away all her vacation time and is now using today to try an catch up on this big money-making project…chorkel!

  83. Wookie of Chevy Chase

    All right Rio. I sent it to your busy place for Alice. Not that important and you are probably way beyond that in your knowledge of computers, but I sent it anyway.

    Goodnight all. It is time for me to start the pre-sleep procedures.

    Good night, Staff.

    Rio: I wonder, I bet, I hope that when you get your new laptop you’ll be able to hang out at Chet’s, check email and run command central all at the same time with out anything blowing up or freezing up. Just think of it!

    Rebecca!…I know! …snort!…She was all set to go buy a new laptop but realized she needed to catch up on this big project and make supper, which was lasagna, I think I mentioned that above…grunt!…Plus, the weather here was frightful, so staying home and twirling paper, not to mention watching the Rockies play seemed a good idea…wheeze!…But here I am without a Brand New Command Central Computer…grumble!…Next weekend is the planned time to purchase this amazing machine….wuffle!…I just hope I can manage between now and then.(((sigh)))

    Rio: Happy birthday to you! I hope you got an extra cookie or one of those fancy zingers. I sure would like your friends lasagna recipe.

    A happy birthday (late) to Coach and to Lily as well.

    Today was our Easter. Staff cooked the spiral ham to perfection with the Royal’s mums instructions and it was delish.

    Tomorrow Staff will go to work and I will actually have to assume some of the duties of the caregiver to the ‘rents.

    On Tuesday I will do my taxes. This is called leaving things until the last minute and then some.
