First Mention of the Teitelbaum Divorce

“Hey, Chet,” Rick said, looking past Bernie. “Got an extra cruller here, big guy.”

Yes, please. Regular meals didn’t seem to be happening lately and I was famished.

“Empty calories,” Bernie said, holding up his hand. The extra cruller stayed in the cruiser. Bernie stirred his coffee with his finger. “The tape,” he said.

“Seemed kosher to me,” Rick said.

Kosher: I knew that word; it had something to do with chicken, specifically the best chicken I’d ever tasted, at the celebration dinner after the final stake-out in the Teitelbaum divorce. I waited to hear how chickens were coming into the case.

From Dog On It. 

Welcome Gus. Bromancers – please retry.

    Odin: Dear Mr. Quinn, I just wanted to say Thank you! Mom says that calling you Mister Quinn is a sign of respect but I don’t get it on account of our cat is named Mister and well, he’s a cat. The cat is better at catching rodents, than I am and I do admire that, so admiration must be a type of respect.

    Where was I? Oh yea, yesterday the mailman brought us The Fistful of Collars book that you and Chet sent us. So, last night when mom told me it was time for Chet & Bernie I ran around and collected my favorite chew toys (Peanut the smelly elephant, Princess the Hedgehog and Squirrel) and when mom got to the room we are all in bed anxiously waiting to hear about Chet & Bernie’s latest adventure. I’m not sure why, but mom started laughing and told me that I could bury any kitchen appliance that I wanted to.

    Well I’m off to find where mom hid that blender thingy, that makes that noise I don’t like and bury it!

    Good morning, Odin and Kandi. Do you really have an elephant named Peanut? How kool is that!

    We need to file a complaint with someone. Last night, the rents took OUR Sibaru out for its first real drive, to a little town they go every Christmas season to shop in tiny shops, and eat. Mostly eat. They did not take us, nor bring any food home for us. Yet, it is OUR huskymobile.
    Today, Mom said that she is taking Sasha and Dima back to the Animal Rescue League, which is that awful shelter where she rescued us from. Egads! What did we do wrong?

  3. Kandi Kinney
    9:33 am on December 8th, 2012

    Odin: Yep, Peanut is the smelly elphant. Mom & I name all my toys so that we can play this game where mom will say “Odin, where’s Peanut” or “where’s the squirrel” and when I bring her the right chew toy, I get a treat!

    Mom rescued me from a shelter, like the one chet was in, in Dog Gone It. I hope the A.R.L. isn’t like that one.

  4. Barb & Maggie
    9:44 am on December 8th, 2012

    Kandi, You have to understand the Dima and Sasha would NEVER really go back to the rescue place. Their folks are very devoted to them to put it mildly. Glad to have you and Odin on the blog.

    We had breakfast, now Barb is getting ready to run up to Kelly’s lake house and retrieve a honey cut ham that they left there. Looks like ham and escalloped potatoes for dinner. Yum!

  5. Kandi Kinney
    9:54 am on December 8th, 2012

    Whew! I’m happy that Dima & Sasha have a fur-ever home, like me! Mom has to go to work now. Something about getting overtime for Christmas and kibble and helping Santa pay for the 3ft rawhide candy cane that I told him I wanted.

  6. Tupper and Gilly
    9:58 am on December 8th, 2012

    Sasha and Dima – fear not – we think you are probably going to a fund raiser or a benefit of some type. And there may be food!

  7. Barb & Maggie
    10:22 am on December 8th, 2012

    You are right T & G, they might be going to rescue, but just for fund raising. They are probably excellent reps for their breed. Incidently, did you see the UTube video of the husky howling along with the baby?

  8. B.Stover
    10:31 am on December 8th, 2012

    Good morning all.

  9. OleyHowlers
    10:37 am on December 8th, 2012

    Gee, we sure hope youse guys are right. Still, Sasha is really not interested in seeing the inside of that place after all these (15) years. But that shelter wants her there. They say it’s a Holiday party and that Santa will be there, but what if it’s a trap?

  10. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:51 am on December 8th, 2012

    Postal!…It’s a postal kind of morning around here….snort!…Nothing makes my friend crazier than wrapping and packing up her projects..sniff!…First she has to say “Goodbye” to them and then stuff them into a box…grunt!…Sad but true.

  11. OleyHowlers
    10:57 am on December 8th, 2012

    It is postal here too, Rio. But postal here means that another “Howlers” monogrammed blankie has arrived from LLB, for the back of the Sibaru. That is good news, isn’t it?
    On the other paw, Mom told us that the other shelter around here, the Humane Society, is having one of those “Holiday Parties” next week, and she is taking The Reds. What if she is finally putting an end to the shenanigans around here? But if that’s the case, Chief Shenaniganer Buddy would be ended too. Then again, he is red also. Pondering…

    Bella, if you get internet access, please check your SDD.

  13. Tupper and Gilly
    11:06 am on December 8th, 2012

    Howlers. – the chances of your mom giving one of youse guys away is almost as big a chance of us kissing a Wrotten Kat right on the lips.

    You got THAT right, you silly Corgis!

    11:09 am on December 8th, 2012

    OleyHowlers: Maybe the Rents are bringing back two MORE Sibes? snicker

    Post Office: We received a post card telling us to choose from A. Closing it down B. Reducing the hours. There wasn’t a C which should have been leave it ALONE!

    Zoë and I voted for reducing the hours. Taking away our postoffice? They have taken away the two nearest post offices. So if they take ours away? It’s a trip down the hills in either direction. Try that in the winter up here. They close the main roads because of the hill incline. Sigh

    Alice: Please let Dawson use your computer to check for a SDD.

  16. Barb & Maggie
    11:23 am on December 8th, 2012

    Postal morning here too. On the way to pick up the ham, Barb is mailing two packages to her Bro. One of them is super heavy becaus it contains books. The other on is going regular mail. Good thing we can get media rate on the heavy one or else there would be no treat money for moi! BBL

    S.O.S.! Dima here. Sasha & I are in the Sibaru on the way to ARL.

    Rio – finally checked. You know how Mama is at a show. She tends to get distracted by customers…

    Mollypop’s Mom: How are you feeling today?

    Where is Siber H?

    I’m making sour cream coffee cake.

  21. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:21 pm on December 8th, 2012

    SiberH!…I hear he is out shopping at the crowded malls…snort!…Wonder what he is getting me?…hmmmm!

  22. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:22 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Shopping!…Speaking of shopping, my friend says she is all finished now and after a very long walk…grunt!…we are going to put up the Christmas tree….wooooooo!….That will be fun!fun!fun! The walk, not so much…sniff!wheeze!

  23. Belle
    3:23 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Belle here, just back from our Saturday bagel and garage sales. We met a really cool guy named Apollo. They said he is a standard poodle. Does that mean that there is a better, upgraded model? His guy said that he should have been named Eileen, which mom understood right away, because he followed mom around an every time she stopped, he leaned on her. BTW what self respecting dog doesn’t shed. It is what I do best!

  24. B.Stover
    4:06 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Will you be helping to put up the tree Rio?

    Belle: I wouldn’t want a poodle that leaned.

    I’m here at Molly’s Mom’s almost ski place. I watched snowboarders – they just walk up the hill. Here I am in my new snow parka, trying not to have my picture taken.

  27. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:20 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Stover!…Yes!…The big box with the tree has been found and put out….snort!snort!…First we have to test the lights…grunt!

  28. Siber-H
    4:25 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, CUTE!!

    Sam, You look like a true ski bunny. Wish we would have a drink together in the Lodge and see the snow.

    I’m here and no, no, no, I haven’t been shopping. That would be dog abuse in my book unless it was in the treat isle of the pet stores. Mom doesn’t take me down the food isles.

  29. OleyHowlers
    4:37 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Dima here. Ignore my earlier Save Our Sibes. Turns out there really was a holiday party with lots of Members of the Nation to meet and greet, and Santa, and toys, and Hot Dogs too. Afterward, we went to Mom’s friend’s fancy schmancy “K-9 Lifestyle” store where we bought treats (and toys for The Reds). Now we are sitting in the Sibaru waiting for a cheese, salami, and cracker tray for the house concert at other friends’ tonight. Are we livin the life or what?

    Sammy, you look like the beautiful ski girl on the commercial. We think you could be “found” by a big Hollywood producer this ski season.

  30. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:48 pm on December 8th, 2012

    oowwwwww!…The tree is up and the little twinkle lights are on…sniff!sniff!sneeze!…Beau is not down here with us. Imagine his surprise when he does venture down ….heh!

  31. Basil and Sage
    4:55 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Howlers – well, shoot. We figured that Buddy and TC had figured out a way to take their rightful place as head of the household. We were going to ask for detailed instructions so we could get rid of certain pain in the tail Corgis.
    Would you believe that Mama calls Gramp and has him put those dam dogs on the phone? Does she ever call for US? No!
    Good thing too – we have caller ID, and would probably ignore her anyway.

  32. B.Stover
    4:57 pm on December 8th, 2012

    How about a picture Rio.

    Sam: I really like the snow parka.

    Do the Howlers look happy?

    I didn’t think you were shopping Siber H.

  33. Mollypop's Mom
    4:58 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Hi B! I’m doing better – until the next ‘glutening’ I guess. I learned a lot from those two last episodes. It feels amazing when it all goes well.

  34. B.Stover
    5:18 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Mollypop’s Mom: I’m glad you’re better.

  35. Masquers

    Hi Everyone.
    Computer problems here. Waiting for assistance. May be down for a couple of days.

  36. Melanie
    6:09 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Purdey dogs in purdy pictures!

    mollyPops’s mom, Zoe is now going off gluten. She is being tested for celiac. She also has to go off dairy until her middle is doing better. She says there’s nothing left to eat. I made her curried lamb chops with no dairy and no gluten. She loved it.

    Watching the scify cannel. Terrible movie. For the next few nights they are having “the Twelve Disasters of Christmas”. So far I’m far from impressed.

  37. OleyHowlers
    6:09 pm on December 8th, 2012

    MPM! So glad you’re feeling better!
    Masquers Techno Kat, you can fix it! This here blog wouldn’t be the same without you.

  38. Barb & Maggie
    6:46 pm on December 8th, 2012

    MPM, We too are glad you feel better. Did you always have a problem with gluten or is it worse now since you have be eating gluten free?

    We are signing off. Barb is going to the Woodstock Square where Santa is making a visit. She is meeting two of the grands there for a bit. She can’t take me, cuz her knee is too bad and she can’t take a chance of me pulling her over. She is such a baby! See you tomorrow.

  39. Melanie
    7:03 pm on December 8th, 2012

    zzzzzzz . . I was going to write something to Macy, but I can’t remember what it was!

    So I’m going to bed. Yes, I’m aware of the time. My body isn’t.


  40. Tupper and Gilly
    7:07 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Day two of the Lovesick Producer Show Take 2. So far the crowd is kind of like Melanie’s scifi movies – not very impressive. But then again, last week we had next to nothing in sales until late Sunday afternoon. Here’s hoping this show will follow suite, because we have the “next to nothing” part done.

    There was a singing group here today from Mali. They were amazing! The whole place was rocking and swaying with their music. Now THIS was a cultural festival!

  41. Wose
    7:14 pm on December 8th, 2012

    MollyPop’s Mom: I am glad to here that you are feeling better. I’m sure that Sammy is a wonderful nurse, and quite fashionable in her ski jacket.

    LOVE the picture of Sasha and Dima with Santa!

  42. Wose
    7:20 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Rio! The Prof and I put our tree up today too! Any chance of a picture being posted on this here blog?

    I also have a mission for you commander Rio. If you choose to accept it, it will mean fighting off any nasty MGs from the perimeter of you home.

  43. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:30 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Rose!…I never except any missions that involve Goats…sniff!…And never without knowing all the details…grunt!…Plus, I’m pretty tired after the Auction and the Holiday Boutique…wheeze!…So if the Mission is you sending me something for Christmas, then I accept by all means!….heh!

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:33 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Rebecca!…If you are anywhere near civilization please check your SDD…snort!

  45. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:34 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Photo!…She tried to take a photo of the very bright tree but it did not come out right..sniff!…So maybe she will try again later after a little rest.

  46. Wose
    7:43 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Rio! That is your mission. Be on the lookout.

  47. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:58 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Rose!…My friend says you shouldn’t be sending me anything…sniff!…I do not agree with her at all…wuffle!

    Wolfie!…We received the lovely ornament and that little extra special thing too!…Woooo!….My friend really really likes it and most likely will be finding a spot on our tree for it…snort!snort!

  48. Siber-H
    8:01 pm on December 8th, 2012

    I’ll help Rio ward off the MGs. Rio’s friend’s mom really knows how to eat well. I’d enjoy a short visit, and, who knows, it might snow.

  49. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:03 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Tagged!…Has anyone else noticed the tag on today’s post?…snort!…I wonder what “e-story2” means, besides the obvious….heh!heh!

  50. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:08 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Melanie!..I know she is in bed already, but I wanted her to know that we are watching “The Borg” episodes on Star Trek: The Next Gen….snort!…For some reason beyond my comprehension, I have never seen these episodes before…heh!…Not ONE!

  51. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:08 pm on December 8th, 2012

    SiberH!…Oh, it would show. It would show within one week you’d be SiberHefty…heh!heh!

    8:31 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Belle is bummed that no one would talk to her. Chugs are so moody!
    Bee did make a comment though. Belle says that she thinks the blog is a clique.

  53. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Belle may be Macy’s daughter
    Hello Belle!

  55. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    8:40 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Belle – is true. Blog does do clicking. Is very often no von talks to Natasha either. Maybe Belle and Natasha should be club together. Ve could do missions and run vith sled dogs in high heels. But Natasha does not shed either – vould not be good in spy business.

  56. Wose
    8:42 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Wolfie: Thank you for the lovely ornament and the extra surprise. The ornament has found his rightful place on our tree!

  57. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:47 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Naughty-Natasha!…snort!…The only clicking on this blog is from your high-heels…heh!…Sometimes I talk to myself all night long and I don’t complain when no one responds…sniff!…I finally give up and go to bed…grunt!

  58. B.Stover

  59. Macy the Min-pin
    9:04 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Belle is NOT my daughter , dog forbid. She was here when I got here and is treated like royalty. Anytime dads truck moves, she is in it. Not that I want to go riding all over town, but would it hurt them to at least ASK?

  60. Siber-H
    9:04 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Hello Natasha

    Belle, Stover is right.

  61. Siber-H

    Sorry, Macy

  62. Belle
    9:07 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Natasha, should we have a secret paw bump or something. I am afraid that I am not exactly built for heels, more like that tan pug, only more feminine.

  63. B.Stover
    9:07 pm on December 8th, 2012

    You’re right Macy. They should at least ask you if you want to go.

  64. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    9:08 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Oh – But Supreme Commander Bee – is ok for NATASHA to be bummed?


  65. Belle
    9:12 pm on December 8th, 2012

    And I can handle the shedding duties for both of us. I do want to get some of those cute little racing boots. I still have my dew claws and often hurt them. Dad wanted to do something about them, but the last I heard of it was dad muttering “$800?”.

  66. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    9:12 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Belle – yes, ve will have secret paw bump/tail viggle/ear shake. Vill confuse outsiders. Is ok you don’t vear the high heels – but ve must draw line at hat. You DO vear hats, yes?
    (and remember, is ok be femme fatale, but remember – Siber belongs to Natasha!)

  67. B.Stover
    9:15 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Sorry Natasha. Of course I don’t want you to be bummed either. You’re too beautiful to be bummed.

  69. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:21 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Question!…Is the actor who plays Watson the guy who plays Bilbo Baggins on the upcoming movie The Hobbit?….snort!

  70. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    9:22 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Vhy thank you Commander Bee. Natasha has deep respect for you too!
    Siber – you see…Supreme Commander Bee, von who owns own land of Stovernia, and still has time to bake pie has time to be nice to Natasha. Vould kill you to pay complement now and then??

  71. B.Stover
    9:24 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Rio: Yes, the actor who is playing Watson also plays in the Hobbit.

  72. Wose
    9:27 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Rebecca: Wherever you are right now, just wanted to let you know I received your package. I love the 2013 calendar (color….whooooohooooo)! The Prof says he can’t wait to meet Wyatt. The magnets are very cool, and Lefty’s portrait puzzle will be a lot of fun to put together, not to mention it is a gorgeous portrait.
    And the famous smooch!

  73. B.Stover

    9:28 pm on December 8th, 2012

    I don’t come around enough to get my own avatar.

    Natasha, I will be willing to wear hats, sure. It is supposed to get REALLY cold here tomorrow. Ii like the idea of a secret tail wiggle. I don’t wag much, due to my naturally curly tail.

    I am still waiting for an answer to the standard poodle question.

  75. Wose
    9:30 pm on December 8th, 2012

    9:32 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Hobbit!…He plays in The Hobbit? But he is not Bilbo Baggins?…snort!…I’ve seen just a very few clips of the movie and I recognise this guy, but I don’t know if he is Bilbo or not…heh!

  77. B.Stover
    9:33 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Rio: Yes, he plays Bilbo.

  78. B.Stover

    Perhaps we’ll be getting another e-story.

  79. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:40 pm on December 8th, 2012

    AWWW! HA!…I would never in a million years have chosen him to play Bilbo Baggins…grunt!

  80. B.Stover

    Rio: Why not?

  81. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:48 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Because!…I thought they would find someone who looked a bit more like a younger Sir Ian Holmes, thats why…sniff!…This guy is so vanilla…grunt!…I’m a Hobbit snob. I admit it.

  82. Staff
    9:51 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Just finished reading the blog.

    Hello Macy, Hello Belle, Hello Natty. heh. (Just in case)
    Oh and hello Rio and BStover and Mr.Husky and OHowlers and Rose and Commander Rio.

    And anyone else who is up and around.

    Dawson is heading into the basement to see if she can find Sherlock on the tv.

  83. Barb & Maggie
    9:52 pm on December 8th, 2012

    $800 for dew claws? Wow, it must be a more major job when you are grown. If they are done at 2-3 days, it is a simple snip snip. Many English Shepherds have rear dew claws. In my breed they usually leave the front ones and take off the rear ones, don’t ask me why.

    Barb says the square was beautiful and the kids got to see Santa. Lyla was nervous but Jack leaned back and snuggled into his beard and looked like he could stay there and take a nap.

    Belle, I am not sure if we are a clique, but we have so many inside jokes, and our own language so often that newbies seem to not stick around very long. Would anyone agree with that?

  84. B.Stover
    9:58 pm on December 8th, 2012

    I’ve never read the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings.

  85. Siber-H
    10:07 pm on December 8th, 2012

    I haven’t read the books either.

    Natasha…a compliment, huh. Well, you have a really hot sports car.

  86. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:10 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Trilogy!…Well, those of us who have spent many many hours of our lives reading the beloved books (several times) have certain impressions of how the characters look and act….snort!…Fortunately the director of the Lord of The Rings films had the same vision as many of us…wheeze!…His characters were spot on in all regards. So I guess after saying all that, I should trust him about his choice for Bilbo Baggins…grump!

  87. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    10:21 pm on December 8th, 2012

    So – sniff – Siber – you only love Natasha for her SPORTS CAR???

    Ve vill be flouncing off now.

    I have read all four books at least twice and maybe three times. I thought Bilbo was perfect in LOTR. He shouldn’t look too young as he was supposed to be quite old. What was it…well I checked and in the Hobbit he was only supposed to be 50. In hobbit years.

    No, Rio, I’m the one who is always in trouble with Natasha, not you.
    You are too short for her. Heck, I am too short for her.

    Contact! I have finally been able to make contact. I have been freezing all day, and I’m told a blizzard is blowing in. I hope I can get home tomorrow night.

    Rio: Check your SDD.

    We all just got home from the best concert ever. We were in heaven. There were 2 musicians: 1 played guitar and cello, and 1 played violin/fiddle. The music was an eclectic mix of Classical, Irish,Scottish, French, blues, and Beatles-type.. Then 2 other friends played along near the end. All of this was in a friend’s living room, close to our place. Mom felt like she was in Ireland, where neighbors gather in one house to play and listen to music, eat each other’s food, and drink some beer or wine.

    Rio: We’re not nearby, nor do we have any musical talent, but we can provide a friendly place to visit. If only you could leave your yard…

    Bon soire mon petite Chou Belle. Je m’appelle Etienne le Chien. Comment allez vouz?
    To an-sair your question, I was a Poodle Extraordinaire. Then one day, I went to see the vet, fell asleep for une peau minute, and when I awoke- SACRE BLEU! I was now just a Poodle Stan-daird.
    Zut alors!

    Rio: We worry about our Lady, too. Our worry comes partly from her travels to places near and far, but also because we know she is getting tired. We think she should just curl up in some straw and take some time for herself. A little fresh straw and a good nap works wonders.

    Thieves!…Yes, and she better be drinking her “Airborne” and taking her vitamins regularly…snort!…I know living on Slim Jims sounds glorious, but you can only do that for so long till the wonder and amazement wears thin…wheeze!

    Rio: The shine wore off eating a Slim Jim for a quick bite when T&G posted the do-it-yourself instructions for making Slim Jims. As far as the Airborne, I’ve been taking it regularly.

    Great!…I’m glad to hear it and I betcha don’t get sick quite as often as you used to…snort!snort!…And I totally agree about the Slim-Jim recipe. I always thought it was loaded with just plain good-tasting stuff – whatever “it” was…sniff!….I really didn’t want to know what “it” was, thank you very much…grunt!

    11:45 pm on December 8th, 2012

    Haircut!…That is a foreign word to me…heh!heh!…I’m a wash and wear kind of guy…snort!

    Ms/Mr.Etienne, thanks for your reply. Let me see if I have this right. You were a Super Poodle, but thanks(not) to the vet your are now standardized? That is just wrong! I would like to see a picture of one of those Super Poodles.

    I may not be back for awhile. Macy just got home from a party and is pretty unhappy about me ” bothering ” her friends.

    Till we meet again,
