Dominique: Perp?

“Been following the saga of this Dominique guy?” Admin says. “Head of the IMF and a leading French socialist politico?”

“Not really,” says Spence. “Been busy with the proofs.”

“For The Dog Who Knew Too Much, or – “

“Yeah. So what’s the thing with Dominique?”

“The lesson,” says Admin, “is we should have been socialists. He stays in $3000 a night hotel suites and seems to have a first-class seat at his disposal at all times.”

“To each according to his needs,” says Spence.

Welcome Lance and Beemer.

Breaking news: There’s a brand new excerpt from The Dog Who Knew Too Much over at the FB page.

    Proofs are much more interesting that Dominique (though I would like to know the truth of that matter). Proofs are taking a while.

    Good morning all.

    And that isn’t at all what Marx meant.

    Good Morning B.Stover! I have no idea what is going on with that situation. Though, if true, the word “entitlement” comes to mind. I don’t think Marx meant that either!

    I would be very interested in the PROOFS!!

    The surprise came early!

    Needs!…”To each according to his needs.”….snort!…I could live by that. But my friend thinks that I think I need way more than I really do….grunt! ….So I am always in need of more food and treats (ice cream!). Walking, I get enough of that. This could be cut in half actually….sniff!….Baths, out completely…dammit!

    Perp!….Ole Dom should step down and let one of those other Socialist Marxist French SOB’s take his place… grump!

  5. Melanie
    10:06 am on May 17th, 2011

    Snicker, I’ll put more pics up later!

    Now about those proofs. Audrey is probably hanging out where Spence is . . .

    Riö, any mission apaw yet?

    Melanie, Is it a new sofa? Not sure since it is under wraps.

    Interesting story about the French guy. Evidently he has been caught with his hand in the cookie jar before, but there is also speculation that the current President of France could have set him up. He is said to be unscrupulous.

    Frankly the new book is more intereting than those guys.

    Then we have Ahrnold, who just admitted publicly that he has a 10 year old love child. Guess Maria hit the roof when sh found out the mother had worked for them for 20 years. Where is her sense of humor?

  7. Rose
    10:20 am on May 17th, 2011

    Good Morning to All:

    Very rainy here in NY. My question is: what is the “OR” that Admin. is referring to?

    AND, if this was a staff worker, how could Maria not have noticed she was with child?

    That French guy sounds like a real creep.

  8. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:23 am on May 17th, 2011

    Surprise!….What is that big ball of black stuff in that big ole truck?….grunt!

  9. Barb & Maggie
    10:28 am on May 17th, 2011

    Rose, Article Barb read this a.m. said she was married at the time and claimed the child was her then husband’s. For some reason Arnold has come out with it now that he is no longer the Gov.

  10. B.Stover
    10:40 am on May 17th, 2011

    Rose: I was wondering about the “or” also.

    There is a sneak preview of Dog Who under “treats” on Chet’s FB page.

    I used Rio’s red angry icon on FB but it doesn’t move there.

  11. B.Stover
    10:47 am on May 17th, 2011

    To clarify: I used the red angry icon because we still have no sun here.

    Can’t make out what’s in Melanie’s picture. And I won’t ask what it is….but what is it???

    G&BB: As soon as I heard the name Ishmael I thought of Moby Dick: first sentence, “Call me Ishmael.” (From the footnote in my edition: “In accordance with the prophecy of an angel [in Genesis], Ishmael was ancestor of a vast nation, but he and his descendants were visited by a fate that the angel also prophesied: ‘And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him.'”)

  12. Rose
    11:04 am on May 17th, 2011

    B: I’m not a Facebook member, so I guess I’ll just have to relax until September 6th.

    B&M: Thanks for the clarification. Arnold is as much of a creep as the French guy.

  13. B.Stover
    11:07 am on May 17th, 2011

    Rose: On the right on this blog is a box that is titled “Chet the Dog on Facebook.” If you click on it I think you can get to the page without being a member of FB. I’m no sure though.

    11:12 am on May 17th, 2011

    Arnie!….Seems I’m behind on the Celeb gossip again….snort!….What did Arnie do? I guess I could go look it up, but I’m not really that interested….grunt! ….I’m more interested in the big black thing in the big truck at Melanie’s place….sniff!…A couch or a bouncy castle?…hmmm!

  15. Barb & Maggie
    11:16 am on May 17th, 2011

    We also think the name Ishy is very cute. Ishmael sounds more like a boy’s name, so do we know the sex of the kitten? Do you have any more clue as to how the kitten got there, or if there were more?

    We agree, Maria had her hands full. The four kids seem pretty grounded from the interviews we have seen.

  16. BearSpiritDog
    11:21 am on May 17th, 2011

    Good Morning Everyone – Here comes the Sun!!!

    Barb&Maggie: Hadn’t heard about Arnold’s love child. What was he trying to be – macho man? Is it any wonder Maria wanted a divorce. How disappointing to learn yet another politician has been involved in a extra-marital affair. Now there is another scandal in France. Does the office of public servant automatically entitle these guys to do what they please? I, for one, am thoroughly disgusted with it all. As, I am sure, are all of you.

    GusBooBear: We like the name you mentioned, Ishmael. B&M suggested the name Kismet when you first found the kitten. That would be an appropriate name too. Oh, and thank you for posting the photos last night. A precious little face and so small! Truly “God Hears” and it was “Destined” to be yours!

  17. Melanie
    11:28 am on May 17th, 2011

    I like BSD’s idea, Kismet. Then Kizzy.

    This is Jesse on left and my nephew, James, after they move the thing. . .

    Chet: “Dominique Perp” – a perfect name for him!

    Sam: (from yesterday) That was a very moving story of the man who lost his wife only to return home to see Angel Cat, who became his life long companion. There is a book called “Dancing with the White Dog”, which deals with this subject. Has anyone read it?

    Melanie: What can it be! What Can It Be!! WHAT CAN IT BE!!!

  19. Gus and BooBear
    11:36 am on May 17th, 2011

    Looks like the kitten is a boy so Ishmael will work. B, we liked the first sentence u quoted from MD, but that footnote is kinda scary. He’s a real sweety and not afraid of the big cats at all. Mom went back out to the spot she found him and checked for more babies, but didn’t see or hear anything. We guess Toes had sent up a request to the doorkeeper on the Rainbow Bridge and then when he got his answer, felt like he could rest easy. Really, really miss him.

    Arnold has always been a ladies man. Guess he didn’t tell Maria before because he knew she would leave on that note. And he wasn’t thru playing politics.

  20. BearSpiritDog
    11:36 am on May 17th, 2011

    Cool shirt, James!

  21. BearSpiritDog
    11:49 am on May 17th, 2011

    B: I just went to the F/b page, but couldn’t get the “treat” (or chose not to) as it was asking for access to my Facebook information. Guess I will have to wait until September along with Rose.

    Quote from Chet on Twitter: “Dominique: perp, oui ou non”

  22. Barb & Maggie
    11:51 am on May 17th, 2011

    G & B, Wonder if you will ever hear any more about the kitten’s origin. We like to think that Toes had a lot to do with it.

    We think Melanie’s delivery was a sofa, but it could be a large chair. Inquiring minds want to know.

  23. Rose
    12:07 pm on May 17th, 2011

    I’m being kept in suspense about Chet’s treats, and about that big plastic thing in the truck…RATS!

  24. B.Stover
    12:17 pm on May 17th, 2011

    G&BB: Sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. Since the footnote is quoting Genesis, it’s the Jewish version of Ishmael. I just think that the story and “translations” of Ishmael and Isaac are interesting…possibly the origin of the great divide.

  25. Melanie
    12:41 pm on May 17th, 2011

    First this is a wonderful video about a persistent Border Collie
    http://www.wimp.com/throwstick

  26. Melanie
    12:44 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Now . . .

    Because of the beavers that have taken over our stretch of the river and Giardiasis (infection from beavers that dogs can get) and because this years river break up has left a LOT of rocks that are dangerous for our older dogs (and us to walk on) . . .

  27. Melanie
    12:46 pm on May 17th, 2011

    We have bought a DOG POOL! Above ground, extra thick lining, heavy duty filter, 20 foot in diameter, 52 inch deep DOG POOL!

    As soon as we get it up, we will have to have a virtual pool party! Siber-H staying well away from the water!

    Notice for some reason the company sent it to us as Dog College!

  28. Snowhook Bella
    12:48 pm on May 17th, 2011

    I’ve been battling a sinus infection the past few days so I haven’t been on the blog much, but just curious if Macy has been on the scene?

  29. Snowhook Bella
    12:56 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Melanie: a pool! Wow! If Snowhook is invited to the pool party, SiberH may have a lot of company on dry ground.

  30. Siber-H
    12:58 pm on May 17th, 2011

    I’ve been wondering the same thing, Rebecca. It has been awhile since we have heard from Macy. I hope she and her mom are okay.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    Melanie, I am very happy for the Newfs!! That is a neat present and they will love it. When I come visit you, I just won’t look at it.

    Gus&BooBear, We like the name, Ishmal, and T&G came up with a clever way to shorten it. What a cute guy the new kitty is.

  31. Rose
    12:58 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Dog pool…SWEET! I’m wondering if I might get and invite to dip my toes in. :^)

  32. OleyHowlers
    1:17 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Hello to all:
    Its Primary Day here in PA. The weather is terrible and seems like the turnout is terrible as well.
    Chet: What is the “or….” that Admin is referring to????? What a mystery that slip is!
    Melanie: Can’t wait to see the pool. We want to be invited … well not me (Sasha) so much, but Dima definitely and Meashka is a maybe.
    G&BB: That kitten is so cute! And we love the name Ishmael…reminds us of The Rocket.
    Snowhook: We hope you kick that sinus infection. Mom is always getting those and they are really a drag.

  33. Siber-H
    1:18 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Totally enjoyed the Border Collie video, Melanie. Mom loves them, but says having one as a family member is a full time job if you don’t live on a farm and/or have sheep.

    We are looking forward to seeing pictures of the Newfs in their pool.

  34. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:19 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Pool!… I had written down Pool as a guess, but erased it because of all the natural water around you guys…heh!…This will be a fun summer of Newf photos in the pool!…snort!….Lets all push SiberH into the Pool!….Wooooo!

  35. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:25 pm on May 17th, 2011

    SiberH!….The second game with the Giants starts at 1:00 today….snort!

  36. OleyHowlers
    1:28 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Great video, Melanie. Altho we think that Border Collie is missing some natural canine sense of smell.

  37. Tupper and Gilly
    1:57 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Count us in for the pool party! Well, for the party part anyway. We have NO intention of getting wet! buut Tupper is a world class sunbather and Gilly is a world class crumb picker upper – surely there will be some crumbs dropping in the grassy “beach” around the pool!
    Mama is back to working a double shift again today. Sigh…we hope to BBL, but for now lunch break is over, and she has to open the place back up again.

  38. Gus and BooBear
    2:17 pm on May 17th, 2011

    We’re glad to get some positive feedback on Ishmael from you guys. The girls in Mom’s office looked at her like she was crazy! Mom really liked Kismet but for some reason that sounded like a girl name. We will let you know when a final decision is made.

    Wow, a pool! We had no idea that beavers carried such bad things for dogs and people. Keep the pack safe!

  39. Siber-H
    2:17 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Rio, thanks…we plan on watching it. Ubaldo will be pitching. I hope he can return soon to the Ubaldo of last year.

    Border Collies are prone to ocd.

  40. B.Stover
    2:30 pm on May 17th, 2011

    What is ocd? I think the border collie should run over to the guys laughing and nip them in the shins.

    G&BB: How about Siam, as in “there is no greater cat than I am.” I do like the rhythm of Ishmael though.

  41. Siber-H
    2:40 pm on May 17th, 2011

    obsessive compulsive disorder

    Mom knows from first hand experience that the Border Collie focus is totally on that stick..he cannot hear or smell anything else.

  42. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:11 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Stick!… snort!heh!snort!…They say Border Collies are the smartest breed?…chorkel! …Not that guy!…heh!

  43. Staff
    3:15 pm on May 17th, 2011

    I think those guys are really mean for not throwing the stick for that BC so he desperately tries to get a *&%$ statue to play with him. Mean mean mean….

    Macy please check in. I hope you don’t have the stomach flu that is going around. It is nasty stuff.

  44. B.Stover
    3:19 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Those guys are mean and they deserve to be nipped in the shins.

    Macy’s mom is on FB. I’ll check.

  45. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:24 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Trick!….Hey, if you are dumb enough to fall for the Ole Statue with The Stick Trick, then you deserve to be laughed at…heh!heh!

  46. B.Stover
    3:30 pm on May 17th, 2011

    But you don’t deserve to have it put on the internet.

  47. Siber-H
    3:34 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Border Collies may have those issues, but they are so trainable and listen so well, mom says. I wonder what she means by that remark.

    Hi All – I’m back from Sam’s girl’s graduation. Mom said it was lovely – 100 girls in floor-length white dresses all holding bouquets of red roses. It took place in the University of Buffalo’s Center for the Arts. The stage had risers and the girls filled it in beautiful symmetry.

  50. BARB & MAGGIE
    4:20 pm on May 17th, 2011

    OK did I do something wrong? It is saved in My Pictures in Jpeg, and it is not oversized. I guess I will try again.

  51. Melanie
    4:28 pm on May 17th, 2011

    MollyPop, That is great! Well, color me pink! I thought the white floor gowns and red roses was just a Southern tradition.

  52. BARB & MAGGIE
    4:43 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Will try again, not sure what is wrong.

  53. B.Stover
    5:01 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Mollypop: I’ll bet the graduation was as lovely as your description of it.

  59. Siber-H
    6:29 pm on May 17th, 2011

    I didn’t say anything about the game because I thought Rio might watch it tonight. WOO WOO Rockies came from behind and won the game, and Ubaldo is showing improvement!

    6:38 pm on May 17th, 2011

    I wonder what a $3000. a night hotel room has that makes it worth the money (besides, hopefully, no bedbugs).

    Melanie: A dog pool! How cool. Will you build stairs up to it?

    Snowhook Bella: I hope you feel better soon.

    Mollypop and Sam: Congratulations on the graduation of Sam’s girl.

    Gus and Boobear: I’ll go look at Ishy’s picture from last night now. I like Ishmael and Ishy even though, in the Midwest, icky and ishy are words meaning “gross”.

    I have been very little help for Staff as I have been “under the weather” since I got here. I can hear her cooking up something yummy for the parents now. It’s mom’s 92nd birthday!

  61. Barb & Maggie
    6:45 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Lily is only 8, a little youg for Pot!

    Bee, She has red onions, shallots, chives, radish, mesculin mix, basil and maybe another herb or two. Going to add some bush beans and lettuce. Checks it everyday when she gets home from school. She is a kid that even the non-kid people and dogs would like. Well, most of them anyway.

    She went to a fea-market this weekend (not the real ones) and did her own bartering with the sellers. She learned it from Aerican Pickers. She said “You have $2.00 on here, would you consider $1.50?” They were like, Oh sure, for you honey. That kid will go far!

  62. Mollypop
    6:46 pm on May 17th, 2011

    I finished catching up with the blog from the last couple of days. All was fine until a large spider came up on the screen and we had to scroll past it very quickly (Mom was screaming). I hope there was nothing important said around that arachnid picture becuse we missed it if so.

    I wasn’t scared, just wussy Mom.

  63. BearSpiritDog
    6:55 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Melanie: A pool for the pack and just in time for summer. Can’t wait for the pool party!

    B: That is what I was thinking. Poor Border Collie obsessing over that stick and getting laughed at in the bargain. Doesn’t he know what’s real? (Although I have been known to bark at door bells on TV) O.Howlers: Maybe the BC’s scent isn’t off at all. Could be a real guy under that armor. Maybe the whole thing was staged, like folks used to do on America’s Funniest Home Videos.

    I’ve been wondering where Macy is also. The last time we heard wasn’t she feeling down? Hope all is well.

  64. OleyHowlers
    6:58 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Siber: Your mom can’t possibly think the trainability/listening- well is an admirable trait for a dog???

    Mom just received her free Phillies game shirt !!! Woo-Hoo !!! Ready for casual Fridays at work !!

  65. BearSpiritDog
    7:14 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Siber-H: Maybe Border Collies get ocd when they’re not working, which they are breed to do.

    B: That’s a great name too – Siam – Yes, I am the greatest cat!
    Any news about Macy?

    Dawson: A Happy Birthday to your mom! And, feel better soon. You too, Rebecca.

    Barb&Maggie: Lily is so talented! Imagine at 8 years old doing all these things (but we can see who she takes after) How very proud you all must be!

  66. Siber-H
    7:22 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Dawson, I am sorry you aren’t feeling well. Take it easy and get well.
    A big Happy Birthday to your mom!

    Howlers, mom must not think obedience is an admirable trait in a dog…well, it is admirable, but not a trait that she necessarily has to have in a dog. She adopted me.

    Barb, I think the way Lily is being raised is wonderful. Those kids are going to grow up to be the kind of adults the world needs more of.

  67. B.Stover
    7:42 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Lily has a lovely garden.

    Barb and Maggie: Lily’s garden is looking real fine and her great bargaining skills will come in handy throughout her life.

    News from the North: Our garden is being rototilled today. It will be planted next week, weather permitting.

    Yikes! Slave Lake, Alberta, population 7000 was evacuated a couple days ago due to forest fires and high winds. More than half of the town has burned.

    The cat video was very funny, the spider is extremely ugly and little Ishy looks very rambunctious.

  71. Barb & Maggie
    7:54 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Thanks you guys, I’ll let Lily know that everyone liked her garden.

    Tell Macy’s mom we are thinking about her too, and miss their posts.

  72. Melanie
    8:25 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Dawson, hope you feel better soon.

    Staff, Dawson, and the CattyLibrarian’s Mom: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    Dawson: Is that near where you usually live?

    MagPie: Tell Lily that is a beautiful garden.

    Don’t know when we’ll get the pool up. We have a “guy” with a bulldozer coming to make the ground level, but it’s been raining so much, we’re not sure if he’ll sink.

    Up to bed for me. The dogs had a big day. Got to bark at a big truck, got to get wet, got to run, got to sleep!

    Slave Lake is several hundred miles south and one province over from where I live but all us little Northern towns have a kinship of sorts.
    Hooray for Harmon Killebrew: A real class act.

    Glad things are calmer tonight in Colorado. We will ask Lily to send some of her special herbs your way, Rio.

    We are supposed to finally start getting some warm weather. Maybe upper 70s by this weekend.

    Going to go read for a few minutes, check the goatie in the barn, then off to bed.

    Hope someone reports on Macy soon.

    Fast!….Liz went to see Fast and Furious 5?….snort!…Now that surprises me!…heh!

    Yeah – it’s not the obvious choice! but i like a diverse selection of movies and sometimes you just have to watch Vin Diesel in a singlet…and hot cars… I’ve seen all the previous ones (i think, bit hard to tell them apart).

    On the other hand i’m going to see Source Code on the weekend, you seen that Rio? Sounds intriguing. It’s directed by David Bowie’s son.

    We just finished watching Carl Paladino on the Ed show on MSNBC. This political race in New York’s 26th district is – me and Sam. Yup. We live there. Rachel Maddow, who we love, has been talking about this for at least a week. What we’re not used to is being on the national news. One of the candidates to fill Chris Lee’s spot is a family friend and Sam’s girl and her daughter grew up together. Unfortunately, she has taken a political stance that we don’t support. The election is a week from today and we can’t wait for it to be over. Our newspaper, local news, commercials as nauseum, and now this national stuff. Yuck! Enough already!

    Hey Mollypop. I have been paying attention to that. Thanks to Rachel. I am looking forward to seeing what happens there. I bet you are seeing tons of commercials on TV. I hate those political commercials.

    Ve think all these “entitled” feeling politicians and actors and sports people who behave in such dispicable manner should be neutered.
    And polititions who bombard us vith von commercial after another, each telling lies about the other – ve think they should be locked in room vith endless loop of movie about spiders from Australia.

    Hear hear! I can send some real ones too.

    Code!….Source?…Ugh!…That sounds like something my friend used to do ad-nausea ….grunt! …Doubtful we will be seeing it anytime soon…sniff!

    Nutter!…Butters! With ice cream?…heh!…That just blows my pug mind. I didn’t get any ice cream tonight either. I think there is a conspiracy forming amongst these two. They got their ice cream, but where was mine? ….grump!…I’m not supposed to get any scraps from the table during the day either. What’s up with that?…sniff!….Her mother and I had a good thing going there for a while….sob!sob!sob!

    Vote!…. I vote for neutering and Aussie spiders for all politicians right up front…heh!

    Slogan!….”Stop ‘Em Before They Have the First Nasty Thought!”….snort!…The commercials would be a lot different I think…sniff!

    Spiders!…They would just be there for “encouragement” to stay on the narrow path…heh!

    11:24 pm on May 17th, 2011

    Path!….Hmmmphf!…My path is leading to bed already…grunt!…She is all tired out and wants to turn off the computer and go to bed even before The Voice is over…grump! …I’m still hungry and I need to go out! Now!…dammit!

    It would keep me from being a politician. I HATE spiders. I think it would encourage a lot of people.

    goodnight all

    Dawson went by yawning a few minutes ago and now I can’t stay awake.

    Fire! The snow had all melted but there were no leaves on the trees yet so when the forest fire started it burned all the dried tree branches and underbrush and then the winds started blowing up to 100 miles an hour. The fire was traveling at 6 kilometers an hour which is about as fast as a fire can go. It doesn’t burn everything when it travels that fast but what isn’t burned is smoke damaged. We have lots of forest fires because it gets hot in the summer. Manitoba, though, is flooding right now.

    Liz – Vould you actually go out and catch those spiders? You are such brave girl.
    Ve vill keep offer in mind. Could be spiders could play part in mission.
    hmmmmm.
    Is not true that vorld’s most poisonous spider lives in Australia? Such dangerous place you live.
    both spiders AND vegimite…..
    ve vould be terrified, and ve are vorld’s bravest undercover spy!

    Dawson: we have a burn ban here in our neck of the woods due to conditions ripe for wild fires. BTW, feel better.

    Natasha: Whitey-Lance is a go for the next undercover mission should you need his services.

    B Stover: You said a bit ago that you are a fan of Charlie? So am I. A bit about Charlie: He is begat of Twig and Orion (a good match) and is a member of the Little Women Litter—not necessarily a character of Little Women, but I was on a literary theme and named him after Dickens. All leg, he is one of the tallest dogs in the kennel and still bears the slender shape of a yearling. Watching him sit atop his dog house he reminds me of a gargoyle, a watchful sentry of all things kibble and meat. Charlie is one of the few dogs with floppy ears in the kennel, though his flop more than most. He and his brother Fritz, the only two males of the litter ran alongside each other in the 2011 Iditarod.

    Tash – you guessed right, I won’t be sending a spider anytime soon (but would rather not send the poison-deadly one). Happy to send vegemite though, say when!

    2:13 am on May 18th, 2011

    I meant… can send non poisonous one if you insist for secret mission…
