Election

“Election day coming soon,” says Spence. “Any thoughts?”

“I’m all for it,” Admin says.

“All for elections in general?”

“Absolutely! We the people get to raise our voices – puny on the individual level, thundering en masse.”

“You’re scaring me.”

“That’s the downside.”

    Good morning, everyone! Yep, election days, that’s why our forefathers were revolting, er, revolted against England. We love the mudslining,er, campaigning.
    Great news about the Snowhook truck-a-thon :)
    Have a wildly willful Wednesday.

    Good morning HOH and all. We always take advantage of our right to vote. If you don’t exercise your right then don’t complain, we always say.

    Awwww, good morning to my fine, floppy eared fella! Dainty licks to you, honey pie.

    Wonderful Wednesday to all you other fine folks as well.

  11. B.Stover
    9:54 am on October 29th, 2014

    I agree with Admin–“thundering en masse.” And I think they should let Mac vote!

    Good morning all.

    Whoa! Nice to hear from Mr. Redbone (and everyone, of course)
    another positive vote for elections, although I wish there were a bit more control on the mudsl–uh, campaigning “literature”.
    About to leave for a delightful 11-hour day.
    Giving thanks for blog friends and happy healthy dogs, I head out on the funfest that is the So. Cal freeway system…

    Gasp. Diane, Be Careful!

    Yes, Beau, Your Pawyers took the Five Buck Truck fund over the tippy-top and we Thank You for it.

    Voting Time coming up fast. Now…where’s My Ballot?

    I sent in my US absentee ballot to the States from Canada, soon I will send in my Canadian absentee ballot from the States!

    Hi Redbone Hound!

    Zoe: Back in their heyday, if all 10 Newfs were allowed to vote they would be “thundering en masse”.

    Hooray! Snowhook Kennels 5 buck truck reached their goal! Now if they can only find a scrupulous truck dealer.

    Hi, Dawson! We are counting the days ^..^

  17. Siber-H
    11:32 am on October 29th, 2014

    I’m much more excited about Snowhook reaching their Dog Truck Fund goal and the baseball game tonight than I am about the elections. I hate the campaign signs stuck every where in the ground and all the phone calls, which we don’t answer.
    My folks have already voted.

    All dogs should be allowed to vote.

  18. dawson
    12:32 pm on October 29th, 2014

    Those non stop political phone calls are annoying!

  19. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    12:37 pm on October 29th, 2014

    Siber, We here are bombarded with calls and emails too. Will be glad when it is over. Our campaign for governor in Illinois has been a particularly nasty one, and truthfully, I don’t like either guy. They say or Speaker of the House runs the state anyway, so not sure it really matters.

    This is interesting – we have started getting campaign literature regarding different candidates stand on animal rights issues. Obviously, someone has shared their donation list, otherwise how would they know that it is important in this household.

  20. Herd of Hounds
    12:48 pm on October 29th, 2014

    The nation within has 2 rights…….and 2 lefts :)

    HOH: You said it first.

  22. Siber-H
    1:12 pm on October 29th, 2014

    No candidate in NM ever mentions animal rights issues.

  23. BooBear
    1:43 pm on October 29th, 2014

    Mom went and voted early during her lunch break yesterday so it doesn’t matter if someone contacts her or not. Vote is cast!

  24. Herd of Hounds
    1:50 pm on October 29th, 2014

    Tennessee also has early voting too but the election commission doesn’t publish a brochure with explanations, pros and cons. Can get confusing.

    Wonderful News!

    Melanie is a grandmother and I am a great grandmother! Today, 8:19 AM, a boy to Rob and Andrea. River Kennedy Carpenter..8 pounds 12 ounces. Rob and Andrea are very happy!

    Congratulations, Zoe!!! River is an almost-grandson to all of us Plunderers!!!

    We do not get any of those political phone calls, but we sure do get a lot of nasty lies in the mail.

    PA Humane is a very active animal rights organization here in Pennsylvania. They interview candidates and provide endorsements.

    Wose, thank you for reminding us -HAPPY CAT DAY!

    Also, Wose, got the calendar today. It is truly a work of art! You did a great job. And I think the suggestion of adding birthdays next year is a really good one. If it is not too much extra work.

    Masquers, that is sooo funny! When Chet says “me and Bernie” I love it; otherwise, it drives me bonkers when people say it.

    Doing chicken on the grill and a Caesar salad. May be one of the last grill-outs of the season. We could have a light snow on Saturday. Yikes!

    We are sitting in the living room watching the very last baseball game of the season. The Giants are up by TW0. The guy who rents our land just went by the house in his tractor with all the night time lights shining away. He will be going home to watch the game, hopefully with his grain truck full.

    And throught the middle of the three south window I can see a sliver of the moon high in the sky.

    Mr.Staff is changing channels whenever there are commercials. The MLB network is doing a show about Bob Uecker.

    8:07 pm on October 29th, 2014

    This happened last year with blog time too. Something to do with blog programming being on the last change. (First full weekend of April to last full weekend of Oct.) It will be correct when we really change time.

  65. Staff
    8:14 pm on October 29th, 2014

    There is such a sweet picture of OTAS and the baby on facebookie. He is SO delighted to be a daddy.

    It has been a long day in the battle of medical rules and regs, insurance games, title transfers and other such hoops created by a bureaucratic system. And tomorrow doesn’t look any better.

    BUT, we have a wonderful new addition to our “family”. AND Snowhook raised the money they needed. And while not all is right with the world, there are happy things to dream on.

    Goodnight, Family
