Friend of the Month Reminder

“Last day of the month already,” Spence says. “I wish August had 62 days.”

“Failing that,” says Admin, “it’s time for the September Friend of the Month reminder. Check the right of the screen. See Rex? He’s Chet’s August Friend of the Month. Rex’s human companion sent in a photo to the Friends of Chet gallery, just as Dustin, Lily and Milo’s HC did today. The random number generator – “

“East German Army surplus, circa 1956 – “

” – does the rest. Winner stays over there for the month and the winner’s human companion gets a signed and paw-printed – “

“And diamond-encrusted *– “

” – copy of the latest Chet and Bernie novel, in this case A Fistful of Collars, but in October it will be The Sound and the Furry.”

“This could be you! Just send in a photo!”

*All 100% true, except for the diamond-encrusted part. See below.

And don’t forget the Snowhook auction –

    Rio, you are going to be FOM for October, I can just feel it. That might make up a tiny bit for not getting to see Spence on the tour.

    Riö & Howlers: It’s that enticing e-story. He’s dreaming of seeing his name up there in literary lights…and I must admit…I am too. Think of it. The Masked Kat Returns.

  17. O'Howlers
    11:23 am on August 31st, 2013

    Mom says if she wins that ones, we will all have to draw straws to see whose name is sent in.

  18. Herd of Hounds
    11:30 am on August 31st, 2013

    OH, Masquers, Rio: Imagine if that is what mom bid on and won! How many straws would we need to draw? Maybe a bale. Then again the Daddy Dawg’s name is “Digger”…mmmm?

  19. Melanie
    11:34 am on August 31st, 2013

    Siber, Mr. Husky: You mentioned NATIONAL BACON DAY and in the frenzy of the auction, it just slipped through the cracks 🙁 Well the HOH has something to say about that…BACON, BACON, BACON and maybe BACON.

  31. SnowBella
    1:10 pm on August 31st, 2013

    I was still at the top of the world when the auction launched yesterday and didn’t get home until late last night. Thank you to Melanie that worked through my limited connectivity to announce the opening of the auction on Snowhook’s facebookie. And, a big thank you to AC, those who donated all the wonderful items, those who are bidding and those who want to bid but like us, invested heavily in Hawaiian pants. Each of youse make this possible and are a special part of Snowhook.

    The Bid-O-Matic did explode two nights ago. I stopped, dropped, and rolled, but Rio did not. To keep his curly tail from going up in flames, I had to throw him in the big vat of beer saved for the auction. His tail sizzled, but he didn’t seem to mind. I did catch him doing the backstroke later that night. His tail has been sticking out straight since the ‘incident.’ I put a pink foam curler in it when he was taking a break so it will look like a cinomon roll again.

  32. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:27 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Tail!…Funny thing is my head hurt worse than my tail the next day…groan!

  33. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:29 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Groomers!….We have to go pick up Beau from the Groomers…heh!heh!…So AC will be un-pawed for just a short bit…snort!

  34. SnowBella
    1:36 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Rio: I think your head hurting is a result of the cannonball you did into the pool o’ beer with your mouth open.

  35. Rose
    1:37 pm on August 31st, 2013

    RIO! I have a question, that I know you can answer. How does a bidder now what the current bid price is on each item. Is there something I am seeing here? sniff

  36. Siber-H
    1:44 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Wose, Maybe I can answer your question. Below each auction item will be “comments”. Click on “comments” to see all the bids, including the current high bid.

  37. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:59 pm on August 31st, 2013

    SiberH!…Is correct!…snort!…All the highest bids are in the Comments section…sniff!…I wonder if this is in the rules? I will have to go and check that out…grunt!

  38. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:10 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Maskers!…Your buddy Bear is running wild with the credit card!….Wooooo!

  39. Masquers
    2:12 pm on August 31st, 2013

    so that’s where it is.

  40. Pancho
    2:28 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Charlie is thinking about getting a tattoo that says “Read is not a noun,” in honor of B. Lefty is thinking about getting a tattoo that says, “Says who?” And, I’m thinking about getting one that says, “Says B and me.”

  41. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    2:28 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Love the tattoo! I would love to see what Spence could do with the name ‘ Wolfie Wigglebutt!’

  42. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:42 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Rules!…I just checked and Rule #4 is the one that explains where to find the latest bid on each item…snort!

  43. Pancho & Lefty
    2:46 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Wigglebutt, Wolfie: The possibilities are endless. It could show up as name of a member of the nation within, a stuffed animal, Bernie’s childhood nickname, or the name of a street where Chet grabs the pant leg of a perp. I can’t wait to see what Spence’s creative genius will do with the name of the winning bidder. And, before I forget, I want to thank OFA for his support of the kennel—it means the world to us.

  44. Rose
    2:54 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Siber-H: Thank you!

    I don’t always read every single rule….

  45. Melanie
    3:00 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Bernie’s childhood name . . Wigglebutt. snicker!

    Back in from Gold Panning. 6 flakes of gold were found! Woo! Yoo!

    5:28 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Just catching up here – Mama and the Storyteller were gone most of the day, visiting with friends who had come to town.
    Now Mama is off to the auction to see if she can still afford any of the goodies.

  56. Tupper and Gilly
    5:32 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Oh jeez – make them stop! Basil and Sage are singing “Butt Out Billie, Nanny’s Coming Through” over and over and over again.

  57. Dima
    5:53 pm on August 31st, 2013

    T&G, What does that even mean?

  58. bluecat
    6:06 pm on August 31st, 2013

    HOH and T&G – we were with the boy today and he was wearing his Big on the Pig t-shirt. Synchronicity from grocery store discussions earlier?

    You guys are the best; the auction items are first class.

    B&S – mom hopes the puppets come with libretto…

  59. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:13 pm on August 31st, 2013

    BluKat!…Did you see those little silver earrings that come with that pink Kat-Sign on page 2…sniff!….I thought of you when I saw them. You have to enlarge the photo to see them. Check it out! Item #43!…snort!

  66. Tupper and Gilly
    7:07 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Hi Trigger!

    Dima – Basil and Sage made a donation to the auction. If you read the description of the finger puppets, you will understand.

    BlueKat – don’t you love synchronicity? We have been having episodes of that so often lately. Met a woman yesterday who is going to be helping the Storyteller with some paperwork. She said that the office who “helped” before was Fubar – and then apologized and said we wouldn’t know what that meant. And two days ago, we wouldn’t have, but thanks to Chet’s Blog, we did,…..and told her we did. tee hee

  67. Masquers
    7:12 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Just watched (between bids) the last episode of Broadchurch. Don’t know why we like this show so much, but we do. Maybe it’s the acting, storyline, direction. Definitely a winner!
    HerbKats: I saw your contribution. Love it!

  68. Dima
    7:13 pm on August 31st, 2013

    I do see the song title, but I still do not get it. Must be a cat thing.

  69. T.C.
    7:16 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Herbs, a CAT hero? Love it! Is that really a Broadway show? If I bid on those puppets, do you think I can play with the chickies?

  70. Herd of Hounds
    7:57 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Mom is almost afraid to look at the auction items…too many bids..she wants to cry. Great for Snowhook

  71. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:16 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Sharon!…If you look closely, there are still a few items with no bids…sniff!…You surely could do something about that!…snort!

  72. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:18 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Recipes!….That recipe book alone should perk Sharon’s interest…heh!…Get ole Digger used to real Alaskan food before the big trip north!…chuffle!

  73. SnowBella
    8:21 pm on August 31st, 2013

    AC: I’m taking orders. What’ll you have with your hot wings? Ranch or blue cheese dressing.

    Today is a gray, rainy day. It’s a good day for snuggling up in Staff’s glow-in-the-dark quilt with a good movie and a recently groomed pug on your lap.

  74. Riö - The Evil Peug
    8:27 pm on August 31st, 2013

    8:29 pm on August 31st, 2013

  78. Princess Sam
    8:29 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Bella, please! I know you’re not from Buffalo so I will tell you it has to be blue cheese dressing.

  81. SnowBella
    8:32 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Rio: Got it. Hot wings with a hot wing chaser. The delivery guys delivered lite beer. I had to send them back to get the fully loaded stuff for you. I’ll be by with my tool belt, Belle Starr’s sparkly fire-putter-outer, and some vanilla ice cream for the Ruff Rider.

  82. Riö - The Evil Peug
    8:33 pm on August 31st, 2013

  83. SnowBella
    8:40 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Princess Sam: Please forgive me.

    AC: I just put on another pot of kawfee.

    Melanie: Gold flakes—that sounds like your Going to Alaska fund in the making.

  84. Riö - The Evil Peug
    8:42 pm on August 31st, 2013

    OoooOOooSiberH!…snort!…Where is that guy? Usually, he hangs out at Auction Central and will not leave…sniff!…But today he has not been seen anywhere near the Auction House…grunt!…I hope he is at least watching the game tonight!

    8:44 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Cawfee!…spit!…Where were you at the break of dawn when I really needed that stuff?…snort!…Now I need some good cold beer…sniff!

  86. SnowBella
    8:48 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Rio: A certain Ruff Rider lapped up some black water first thing this morning. Being hopped up on kawfee explains the laps he did around the Bid-O-Matic 3000—bless its rusty parts. The beer delievery guys just returned. Go on in, the beer is fine.

  87. Riö - The Evil Peug

    8:57 pm on August 31st, 2013

    I’m glad I got the five water wings—one for each leg and one for the curly tail—on a certain pug before he jumped into the deep end.

    Princess Sam: When do you get to meet your new cousin? Pancho and Lefty are referring to the pups as No-Your-Other-Left.

    HOH: You can’t be talking about my Two-legged. I have it on good authority that she isn’t funny. Me? Now, I’m hilarious.

    Wose: I have enought rememory for both of us. I never forget that I love you, that you love me, belly rubs are wonderful.

  92. Princess Sam
    9:22 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Bella, I already know what my new cousin smells like. Every day my mom or girl go out and come back smelling like her.

  93. Princess Sam
    9:25 pm on August 31st, 2013

    One day my daddy smells like her and another day my boy smells like her. And where is Molly’s mom with all this going on? I’m so confused.

    Beau: We will blur to your room and leave the Slim Jims in your cold, hard bed without any baseball toys. You better go to bed before Rio, or is he sleeping at AC again tonight?

    Sniff – we had to stay off the computer too with the storms swirling around here. But it’s all quiet now.
    We have to tell you that the broadway show is just a figment of cat nipped dreams. But Basil and Sage are convinced that their (stupid) musical will be up for a Tony. And they wanted to do their part for Snowhook.
    Dima – the song title is all about the goats in their play.

    Rio – did the pink spongy curler fix your twirly tail?

    Rio: We’ll bring enough for both of youse.

    T&G: Batten down the corgis!

    I’m baaaccckk,

    Youse guys have been busy. The storms were amazing. They seem to be over with for now.

    YSAS and LLL have kept me running. Enjoyable. I am now in bed, whilst they are out looking for a Eastern Catamount. Otherwise known as a mountain lion. The Powers That Be tell everyone there are no mountain lions left in this area. The locals tell a different tale.

    I think they are just out there – in the car – trying to scare themselves.

    Jeeze, city people. Snicker.

    SnowBella the flakes of gold have restarted my Alaskan Fund. YSAS thinks we made about a sixth of a cent.

    I’m going to the auction, then go to sleep. Thank Dog.

    Shhhhhh!…I think all the bidders have gone to bed now…sshhh!…It has been very quiet at Auction Central for a bit now, so I am hoping I can hop off to bed early…heh!heh!…Maybe not. Those West Coast and Alaskan guys like to bid late!late!late!…grump!…Also, the baseball game is almost over, and we may or may not go to bed after that happens…sneeze!

    Melanie!…heh!snort!heh!…Second time today we have posted at the same time – or was that someone else?…sniff!

    Rio: We want to tell you a sincere thank you from the bottom of our thieving hearts for pawing AC. You were up and at ’em early, and managed to get persevere on only sixteen dozen hot wings rather than the sixteen and half dozen you ordered. Our harnesses are off to you.

  112. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:13 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Cheated!….You mean I was cheated out of 6 Hot Wings today…grump!…This job sucks…sniff!…Hey, am I even getting paid? How much vacation do I get and are there any benefits besides beer and wings?…sniff!…An older pug such as myself needs to think about these things…grunt!…What about an Auction 401k-3000?? Is that in the works?

  113. Pancho & Lefty
    11:14 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Melanie: That is a sixth of a cent—or is a sixth scent—more than you had at the beginning of the day.

  114. SnowBella
    11:20 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Rio: The half dozen wings were used to ‘fix’ the Bid-O-Matice 3000, bless it’s rusty parts. It worked for a while until one of the chicken wings got lose. How can a job where you get to eat hot wings and drink all the beer you want suck? The health plan is simple: Don’t get sick. With the matching from AC—Slim Jim for Slim Jim—you should be comfortable in your retirement.

    Guffle!..Ok, then. Sounds okay, I suppose….sniff!

  116. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:25 pm on August 31st, 2013

    X’Cept!…I have yet to see ONE Slim Jim in the last 3 years of Auction Central servitude…sniff!

    11:26 pm on August 31st, 2013

    AC: Do you want donuts or bagles tomorrow morning?

  118. Tupper' and Gilly
    11:28 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Rio – ask for a scratching post in the middle of your Auction Central office.

  119. SnowBella
    11:28 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Rio: Aren’t they vesting buried in your backyard?

    Oh, and Melanie? The was a verified catamount sighting in Southampton the other day, so maybe the kids won’t have to scare themselves – maybe a really big Kat will do it for them.

  121. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:33 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Buried!…I saw Beau bury something this morning – this sounds normal, but we pugs do not have a stick-out nose, so him burying something was a bid ordeal…sniff!…Maybe that was my long awaited Slim Jim!…grunt!…If it is, he is in so much trouble!…grumble!

  122. SnowBella
    11:34 pm on August 31st, 2013

    T&G: If you try to ship the katamount anywhere, you’re going to need a bigger box and a lot more shipping tape.

  123. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:35 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Tupper!…No…grunt!…It is bad enough my friend has one, but ME? No freakin’ way…heh!

  124. SnowBella
    11:36 pm on August 31st, 2013

    I hope the Slim Jims are safely buried and have not been stolen at the hooves of the MGs.

  125. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:55 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Hooves!…Gah!…No Marauding Goat types get into my back yard…gruffle!…I am always on the lookout in the backyard. Beau is always on the lookout for the Mail-Man aka Goat out the front door…sneeze!….Together, nothing gets by us…heh!

  126. SnowBella
    11:58 pm on August 31st, 2013

    Rio: It is good to know you’re on the job.

  127. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:05 am on September 1st, 2013

    Rebecca!…Well, hmmm. On the Job, Yes, Beau and I are always On the Job whatever that maybe day to day…snort!

    Donuts or bagels? I never heard a response from AC, so I’ll get both. This must be part of a master plan.

  131. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:27 am on September 1st, 2013

    Donuts!…Ta Dollars…sniff!…And some good cawfee please. Teddy and I require quality caffeine…heh!…Teddy will be going Solo tomorrow for a few hours…snort!..I cannot say when he will be in TOTAL CONTROL of AC all by himself, but those who do bid during that time will have the opportunity to talk to the one and only Teddy who is almost, well partially, an AC Accredited Auctioneer…gasp!…It will be ok, will be ok…it will be ok….Goodnight, you all!…snort!

  132. SnowBella
    12:47 am on September 1st, 2013

    I have full faith and confidence in Teddy. The Ruff Rider rides at dawn… or sometime after dawn, but before lunch.

    Night noodles.
