Friend of the Month Reminder

“Last day of the month,” says Spence.

“So therefore – although Bernie handles the so therefores,” says Admin, “It’s time for the Friend of the Month reminder.”

“Check the right of the screen. See Hubert? He’s Chet’s November Friend of the Month. His human companion sent in a photo to the Friends of Chet gallery. The random number generator – “

“East German Army surplus, circa 1956 – “

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

“And illustrated by Banksy – “

” – copy of the latest Chet and Bernie novel, in this case The Sound and the Furry.”

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

*All 100% true, except for the Banksy part. PS – Banksy, get in touch.

    Happy Saturday. My iPaw died last night, just as Mama Meash was ‘splaining the auction rules to me. Now I need to unbid on stuff.

    Who is Banksy?

    Good morning all.

    Good morning all.

    We knew you were going to say that Bee! Bansky does street art with a political or satirical message. He is from England we think.

    Just ordered The Sound for a gift for Jessica’s mother. She loves the C & B series. Another gift out of the way!

    Also ordered The Eighty Dollar Champion for Lily. It is the true story of a horse on his way to the slaughter house who was purchased for $80. and ended up a jumping champion. This was back in the early 50’s. Sort of a Seabiscuit type of story. We think Oley’s mom would like this book.

    We still can’t figure out what we are doing wrong with uploading our pictures with this new computer. We can get them in My Pictures, can attach them to an email, but can’t get them on the blog. Will have to have Jessica sit down and see if she can figure it out.

    We had 2 photos that we wanted to put on. Maybe Melanie can help us out if she isn’t too busy.

    BSD, Did Nana get a chance to read Comfort & Joy yet?

    We tried Fern in the chicken run this morning. She was in a corner and Isabel and Peg were hanging with her for a bit. Then Pop suggested that Mom move her out from the corner. That got Helen’s attention and she started pecking her!!!!! Now Fern is back in the living room.

    Here are 40 workspaces of creative people. Which does yours resemble?

  8. B. Stover
    10:49 am on November 30th, 2013

    Howlers: Those are interesting. I like Kipling’s the best. The one on Virginia Woolf is her writing shed behind Monks House and she was NOT neat.

  9. Barb & Maggie
    10:53 am on November 30th, 2013

    Oleys, Those were very interesting. None really spoke to us, maybe because we are not very creative, however, the messy ones made Barb cringe and feel very uncomfortable.

    We think Fern should stay in a little longer. When a chicken is not feeling tip top they will often go to a corner. It isn’t unusual for the other chickens to pick on a sick or submissive one. Introducing a chicken back into a flock might work better at night – if they wake up together there usually is more harmony.

    Auction Central!….Will be on a long break from 10:00 – 11:30am Mountain Time….snort!….So the updating of the bids will be delayed during that time,,,,wheeze!

  13. O'Howlers
    11:24 am on November 30th, 2013

    Barb, Fern won’t be able to fly up to the roost at night yet. It was our hope that she could spend a bit of daytime outdoors with her sisters.

  14. O'Howlers
    11:30 am on November 30th, 2013

    Our favorite was Charlotte Bronte’s.

  15. Siber-H
    12:25 pm on November 30th, 2013

    I think Fern is planning on moving in permanently.

    We also like Kipling’s work area best….very British
    We do not like Mark Twain’s pink room.

  16. Staff
    12:35 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Mark Twain may very well have been color blind, but we liked his room here.

    I had a friend who was color blind and when he had his building painted he chose the colors from what he could see and his office building ended up a pretty dusty rose. Snicker. But he was happy because he would drive down the street and he could SEE THE COLOR of the building. All the other buildings on the block, no matter the color, were grey to him.

    12:46 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Back from the drive down the hill so YSAS could pick up the U-Haul truck. It was supposed to be a van. Same price though. Zoë saw how much room it had and said that we should load any empty space with junk from the barn.

    Yeah, that ain’t happening.

    I didn’t see SPAQ’s office space!

    Resting and trying to get warm. 0 degrees here this morning.

  18. O'Howlers
    12:51 pm on November 30th, 2013

    We like Twain’s. It looks more red than pink on our screen.
    We were thinking it would be neat if Spencer would post a picture of his writing room. And maybe Peter too. Do you think they share the same room?

    After the timely and expected demise of the Bid-O-Matic 3000 at the end of the Labor Day auction I had to rebuild Auction Central for the holiday auction. I was a bit short on time and materials. It is just large enough for Rio’s beer vat used for drinking and diving purposes, Ralph, a tub of hot wings, a large dish of kawfee, a spinny office chair, and Rio, his spreadsheet and all his what-nots.

  20. SnowBella
    1:30 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Mr. Wigglebutt is up top. I love that guy.

  21. Siber-H
    2:20 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Just don’t tell Rio what the little building is really supposed to be used for. That looks to be fine construction work on the you know what.

  22. SnowBella
    2:31 pm on November 30th, 2013

    SiberH: It may or may not be the original you-know-what on our property. It has been refinished on the inside and serves as a storage shed when it’s not being used for AC.

    Howlers: Please check your SDD.

  23. Annabelle
    2:42 pm on November 30th, 2013

    The Giant and I are up top right now. I love that picture of us discussing race strategy at the starting line. I taught him everything I know. He’s a good student even if his pony tail is broken—I’ve never seen it wag.

  24. Melanie
    2:49 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Annabelle, the Pack feels the same way about my braid

    Zoë and I are staying in the warm house. I don’t know where the NYC couple get their energy. Perhaps from a certain Best Dam Handler Wife.

    They are off down the hill, the other way, for some mission. Since I was mostly asleep when the told me, I have no idea what they are doing.

    Time for another nap.

    It’s the day after the Day After and there is Food to last a long, long time.

    Just up from my after brunch Nap. Was that Melanie I just saw with her blanket and pillow?

    O’Howlers: We liked the link of Famous Work Spaces. Interesting how different artists create. Rio’s Auction Central, although not on the list, is small but certainly big enough for the all important Hot Wings & Beer.
    Fern…Good thing youse have Barb, Chicken Lady Extraordinaire here on the Blog as the go-to-person for all matters fowl related.

    Barb&Magpie: Nana has not read Comfort & Joy yet as he is not home. The Eighty Dollar Champion also sounds very good.

    Now we are off to Auction Central.

  27. O'Howlers
    3:30 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Siber, We are worried that Fern has decided the warm house suits her.

    Bluecat, please check your SDD.

    Greetings from show land. We can say that is warmer inside than out- but not by a lot. The woman in the booth next to us came from Kenya to do the shows, and poor thing is turning into a Popsicle The weavers from Peru are just piling on more and more of the sweaters they brought.
    But we are having a good time and have met some lovely people. Ok, so we’ve met a few jerks too, but hey, that’s show business.
    Going off to check the auction, then back to work.

  29. Masquers
    3:50 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Howlers: We think those other chickies are jealous.
    Staff: Kool solution for your friend to find his building. For him it was literally one of a kind.
    B: Virginia must have cleaned up her space a bit for the photo.
    Have my eye on a particular auction item…I am assured it is mine, mine, mine.
    Siber: We are expecting SNOW today or tomorrow. If so, please blurr on over.

  30. Pancho & Lefty
    3:55 pm on November 30th, 2013

    We just stopped by Auction Central. Rio just did a cannonball into the vat of beer. Does it get any better than this? You tell us.

  31. Melanie
    3:59 pm on November 30th, 2013

    What a loverly afternoon. The younger set is still on their mission. I am staying where it is warm. Ahhhhhhh

    Zoë has the Pack outside. She had to bribe them.

    BearSpiritDog, that was me. The nap was wonderful.

    Howlers – checked and responded.

  33. Annabelle
    4:14 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Melanie: I’m with you on resting and staying warm. It is well below zero today. I’ve decided to spend the day on my couch while I supervise my Lady’s progress on the quilt. I say BDHW is the human version of my girl, Twig and vice versa. One in the same, those two. Maybe your younger crowd and my crowd are twins?

  34. O'Howlers
    4:19 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Bella: Checked and responded.
    Bluecat: Checked and responded also!
    We just love getting and sending SDDs!!!

  35. Masquers
    4:21 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Howlers: Beautiful libraries. What was the thought we had a long while back about libraries? Melanie might know more.
    Royal Mum: Those Peruvians have the right idea…model their sweaters. P.S. We can loan you our space heater to take the chill off.
    Siber: I think you are right about Fern. What a tasty temptation for your fellow sibers. Of course, Nurse Meashka would beg to differ.
    Annabelle: Twig & Bella…canine and her human version…one of the main reasons Dawson, BSD and I sponsored Twig.

  36. SnowBella
    4:22 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Howlers: Checked and responded!

  37. SnowBella

    BSD: My four-legged girl and my two-legged girl have both been called stubborn. I have no idea where they get it from—certainly not me.

    Interesting things here today. I let the Peeps take me around Carroll, Wythe and Floys counties to look at the Daddy Dawg andhis friend’s old haunts.They said it had been 40 years since one had seen some of the places. Mom was here in 2001 and saw lots of changes. Supposed to be in the low 40’s here but only got to 39 🙁 I may be part Chow but I like my creature comforts and do not put that stupid duffel coat on me again 🙁 I have been a picky Pookey so got bacon and Slim Jim for breakfast and chicken tenders for lunch. Wonder what I can worm out of them for dinner?

    4:40 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Why is it so hard to get an ipaw away from a 3 legged dog? i am one of those weird girl-types that is also color “deficient” Saw nothing wrong with Twain’s space. My working areas look like a combination of…Calder, Kidd, Eamea, Lawson (with lower ceilings), Updike and W.F. Buckley…in other words, I’m messy!

  40. Belle Starr
    4:45 pm on November 30th, 2013

    The only flaw of Mark Twain’s space is the lack of sparkle.

  41. Siber-H
    4:47 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Masquers, SNOW!! I wonder how much you will get. We have gotten all of 2 inches so far this year. Oh thrill

    The Hot One may be fooling some of you, but she isn’t fooling me. I know about those redheaded Siber girls. They are some of the most talented predators on the planet…a deadly combination of brains, beauty, and teeth.

  42. Buddy and Leno
    4:49 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Wow, I’ve been away too long, and have missed y’all. Been busy with work and what not. Daughter Alena and I are on our own this weekend with the critters, mama Melanie started feeling not quite right, so she’s been taken off to a nursing home for a little while, hopefully just a little little while. Leno and I were going to have an adventure, but it looks like we are not going to have an adventure after all, unless some last minute thingy happens at, well, the last minute. Kind of a shame as we were looking forward to it. There would have even been interesting audio. Ah well, them’s the breaks. We still have our smoked turkey in the fridge with Thanksgiving deferred until Mama’s return. Told my friend Jenny and her guide dog Marmalade about the blog, so hope she shows up to join in the fun.

    Now if I can just find a good picture of Leno for the Friends of Chet page. Fiona probably won’t sit still long enough for a picture.

  43. The Hot One
    4:51 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Why, Siber. You do know how to flatter a girl.

  44. Tenzing
    4:53 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Buddy and Leno: You may not know me, but I am the keeper of SnowBella. I was her first sled dog. I’m now retired due to health conditions of my own. I spend a lot of time under the Plunderer Quilt where healing of the body and heart takes place. The Quilt is a wonderful thing. What you should know about me is I make a great pillow. Mama Melanie is welcome to lay her head and heal. Head bumps to you, Tenzing.

  45. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:53 pm on November 30th, 2013

    OUT!…I had my suspicions about the new Auction Central being a used out-house…sniff!…Now it has been confirmed….grunt!…No wander its so cramped in here…wheeze!

  46. Tenzing
    5:01 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Rio: You’re a pug, not a Giant. How much room do you need? My Lady loved that outhouse from the start. Up until a couple of years ago, it had the original moose antlers over the door. The Giant once mentioned demolishing it, but my Lady wouldn’t hear of it. He lost the battle.

  47. BearSpiritDog
    5:06 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Rio: Snicker. As long as you have your Food & Grog all is good.

    Welcome Back, Buddy & Leno! So sorry to hear about Mama Melanie. That place is not a good place to be, especially during the Howladays. Paws crossed she is home where she belongs very soon.
    In the meanwhile…As SnowBella & Tenzing say…the Quilt is the place to be.
    Leno: Good luck with FOM

  48. Herd of Hounds
    5:06 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Buddy, welcome back. Sorry to hear about your Melanie. The HOH has their paws, eyes and tails crossed for her speedy return home. Daddy Dawg and I have our T-day dinner still in the freezer too, but for happier reasons. We are in VA with the 3 legged Pookey dog visiting. Don’t be a stranger.

  49. O'Howlers
    5:14 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Thanks for checking in, Buddo and Leno. As others have said, the quilt is as big as it needs to be when our friends need comfort and healing. And Tenzing makes a mighty fine pillow. We will pray and send pawsitive thoughts for Melanie.

  50. Buddy and Leno
    5:15 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Hi Tenzing, don’t think I’ve ever met a sled dog before. No, take it back, I’m absolutely certain I haven’t. I’m from Texas, lived in beautiful and hysterical Erie PA for 11 years, no sled dogs either place. Maybe Leno, a Seeing Eye™ dog would like that, he sometimes pulls like a freight train! Which is OK. I free though, doggies make the best pillows.

  51. Tenzing
    5:18 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Buddy & Leno: There is a whole team of us here, but I’m my Lady’s first sled dog. Luna, who comes on the blog from time to time, doesn’t count. She is the matriarch of the kennel, but she doesn’t like to muss her fur.

    Team For The Love of Snowhook, (The Howlers and Moi),
    are pleased to announce that we are sponsoring
    during the 2014 Iditarod.

    We now return you to your regular blog which isn’t really regular since it’s Auction Central Day.

    Onward Snowhook!

  54. Coach Whitey-Lance
    5:25 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Kat: Junior has to concentrate on training until the race so don’t try to grow up too fast. Perhaps you could run up ahead of the team to give him some, er, motivation.

    5:31 pm on November 30th, 2013

    O”Howlers and Blue Cat: Quigley, brother of Twig, is an excellent choice for sled dog sponsorship. WhooooHooo! Way to go.

    I cooked a turkey today to go with the sausage stuffing I made yesterday. Kind of a bass ackwards way to do it but it works for me. Delish! Nut Goodies for dessert, though the man in the house was not impressed when he went to get them: “Hey! Did you eat all those Nut Goodies or did you hide them?!” I’m a terrible liar, so I told the truth: A little of both. Heh, heh.

    Buddy and Leno: Hope your Melanie comes home soon.

    Melanie: Does McKey stay another whole day?

  57. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:57 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Wow!….A-Team members are receiving sponsorship, checkpoints are being funded left and right, the Auction is going on – but not for too long now…snort!….Mind the time and please do not send in all of your bids at the last moment. Remember Ralph is old and rusty and I am but one Pug with 4 left paws…wheeze!…So bid!bid!bid! but please not all at once…yeeep!

  58. Barb & Maggie
    6:06 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Don’t bite me, Rio, but when does the bidding end? Isn’t it tomorrow evening?

  59. Coach Whitey-Lance
    6:12 pm on November 30th, 2013

    B&M: I’ve got this one—bidding ends at 3pm (Alaska) today! Yeep!

  60. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:13 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Nip!….Barb, oh dear Barb….grunt!….The Auction officially ends at 7:00 EST. Or about 47 minutes from now….wheeze!

  61. Siber-H
    6:13 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Barb, It ends in about 45 minutes.

  62. Riö - The Evil Pug

    SiberH!…Actually 46 minutes….sniff!

  63. Coach Whitey-Lance
    6:14 pm on November 30th, 2013

    That’s less than an hour if my math is correct. It usually isn’t correct, but I think this time is the exception.

  64. Siber-H
    6:15 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Rio, I was rounding off the numbers.

  65. SnowBella
    6:18 pm on November 30th, 2013

    I received intel from AC that from now until the end of the auction SDDs will not be sent to bidders. Keep your eyes on the auction site for the highest bids. There is only so much a pug drenched in beer and slathered in hot wing sauce can do. His focus is posting high bids. Yeep!

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:18 pm on November 30th, 2013

    SiberH!…That is a big No-No Bad Dawg! in the countdown business….snort!

    Barb, 6 p.m. your time.

  68. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Yeeeep!….I better get back to Auction Central, cramped as it might be…wheeze!

  69. Herd of Hounds
    6:24 pm on November 30th, 2013

    One and all may the best dog win. How long till we make our last bid?

  70. Siber-H
    6:26 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Rio, That is why you never want me to be in charge of Auction Central or anything else for that matter.

    HOH 35 minutes

  71. Herd of Hounds
    6:32 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Oh, oh. Going out to dinner with friends. We are done. Good luck all.

  72. Melanie
    6:40 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Waiting for the countdown.

    Pizza night! Come on over.

    Melanie, I hope ll goes well. Tenzing is a good pillow. I speak from experience.

  73. O'Howlers
    6:40 pm on November 30th, 2013

    The ‘rents need to head out for groceries, a light fixture, and dinner. Hopefully, Mom won’t lose out on everything.

    6:48 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Melanie, Having pizza here too.

    Just placed a bid, keeping paws crossed.

  75. SnowBella
    6:50 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Don’t forget to keep refreshing the auction site to see the high bids rather than waiting for an email from AC.

  76. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:10 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Auction!….Wheeze!…Over without a glitch or grumble from ole Ralphie…gurgle!…He put up a little fight at the end but I was able to put out the fires pretty quickly…gasp!cough!…After the smoke clears I will announce the winners if that is what you all want to see – let me know….grunt!

  77. Barb & Maggie

    Whew – youse guys are some bidders, that’s for sure! Congratulation to all the winners. We know we are not among them as we couldn’t get near the computer til now.
    That’s show biz.

    Show is going pretty well. One more day of chaos, then home for 3 days, and then chaos again. Yup, this is the life.

    Looking at the list of winners, I think Rio is right. It looks like there may be some Christmas presents involved. I would hate to ruin a surprise.

    It also looks like some four-leggeds found their two-legged’s credit cards.

    Be still my wagging tail. I can’t believe how successful the fast and furry-ous Holiday Auction was! And, what’s this?—I’m sponsored?

    Howlers and BlueKat: Thank you so much for sponsoring me. I can’t help but get excited at the starting line. You should ask the Hobbit how excited I became when I saw my Lady four miles from the finish line in Nome last year. I love my Lady. I slept in the house a couple of nights ago and each time the Giant moved, I jumped onto the bed to get closer to my Lady. I also jumped onto the table to get closer to where she was sitting.

  93. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:49 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Dawson!…I am trying to read between the words to figure out what you are really saying….sniff!sniff!

  94. Quig
    8:51 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Rio: Guilty as charged.

    Dawson: Our outhouse is my Lady’s second favorite outhouse. Her favorite is a three sided outfit overlooking the mighty Yukon River.

    Who won the water from the artic? Is that the Burr listing?

  96. Siber-H
    8:57 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Rio, Thank you for doing such a fine job running Auction Central and Thank You to all of you that donated items to the auction.

    I am very happy with what I won. The Arctic ocean water is going to be put in a place of honor in the same bookcase that holds all our books on the history of Arctic exploration.
    And, Woo Hoo, I won all the Iditarod stuff.

  97. SnowBella
    8:58 pm on November 30th, 2013

    B&M: That is the Burr!!! listing. SiberH must have snagged his maw’s credit card. I hope he eats the evidence before she sees it.

  98. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:58 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Quig!…Maybe one day you can teach me how to do that jumping straight up in the air thingy….snort!

    Tired!…I am really tired. Beau kept everyone up all night long last night…grump!….Seems he had to go Out!Out!Out! all night long cause he ate too much rich food that he begged off her mother…burp!…I have a cast iron stomach, I never get sick as a dawg…huffle!…Beau, he has to make sure Everyone is Up when he is Up…grumble!…He is a serious pest when he is sick…wheeze!

  99. Quigley
    9:02 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Rio: I’m not sure exactly how I do it. All I know is I get really excited and BAM! I’m two feet off the ground.

    Luna has a cast iron stomach, too. Does that mean she is part pug or Rio is part Luna?

    I’m waiting for a SDD from Auction Central to tell me Alice M. is mine. So far, nothing.

  101. Princess Sam
    9:11 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Molly’s Mom always does our stuff but this time she snoozed so we losed. Bear and Masquers beat us out.

  102. dawson
    9:11 pm on November 30th, 2013

    So many great items in this auction!

    BearSpiritDog&Masquers: Great items for sure – great bidding also.

    I love the ear-rings and necklaces.

    I’m just happy I got the wolf/seal skin ornament. I think it is light enough that the postage won’t be too terrible. Maybe will fit in a small envelope. Remember to send it NOT priority with no tracking or any of that fancy schmancy stuff. It will get here just as fast, right Rio?

    Dawson: We won’t send it fancy schmancy style, but I will add some understated sparkles on the package. It won’t attract any attention.

  105. Barb & Maggie
    9:35 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Wow! Mom got a new pillow cover for our bed pillow with pictures of Sonja, the first member of the HOH on it 🙂 She said there is also an ear warmer but we can’t figure how it could work on our ears??? She is twirling!

  107. dawson
    9:43 pm on November 30th, 2013

    BelleStarr: Understated? Sparkles! No, please, no!

    SnowBella: That is a great outhouse. Only needs a window. I’d love the one overlooking the Yukon River.

  108. Belle Starr
    9:46 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Dawson: Okay, but you leave me no alternative but to dump a case of glitter inside. Nothing says head bumps and love like glitter.

    9:48 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Bellie!…Tell someone in charge to check her SDD asap…sniff!sneeze!…I’m allergic to sparkles…grunt!

    Quig – Howlers’ Mom said she’d give you a kiss from me, or she’d get a kiss from you for me, or something about a kiss, when she’s visiting you in AK. Sorry I can’t be there.

    Thanks, Rio. You did a brilliant AC job.

    ‘Night, all. Congratulations to winners – thanks for bidding.

  112. Quigley
    10:00 pm on November 30th, 2013

    BlueKat: I wish you could join us. In any event, I’ll make sure Howlers’ maw gets a big, sloppy, sled dog kiss—one for her and and one for you.

    Heh Quig, A room with a view…snicker

    Hey Rebecca, The MAS (Melanie,Amalia and Staff) team did not specify a dog to be sponsored but I have been thinking about it. I believe we want to sponsor one of the mighty wheel dogs who are brave and strong and never ever ever quit. Do we know who they might be for this year?

    I just read on Facebookie that the beautiful treadle that CHobbit had now is a it’s new home! That did not take long CHobbit!

  116. Pancho & Lefty
    10:53 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Staff: On behalf of MAS, our Lady asked the Giant who is training as wheel this year. Guess what? We are! Along with Jem and his nose. Our Lady says you can go wrong with any of us, but we don’t know how you could resist a thief what with our charm, good looks and talents.

  117. Herd of Hounds
    10:58 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Wow! What a day. Daddy Dawg and mom head home with the SPOILED Pookey tomorrow to try and convince the rest of the HOH they are still loved after their holiday in Virginia.

  118. Staff
    11:01 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Ah Pancho and Lefty and Jem. I love Jem’s eyes but now my question is which one of you is the one that eats up all the harness?

  119. Pancho & Lefty
    11:03 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Staff: We’ve been cleared of all harness eating charges. Charlie and Doc are the culprits. We are great at picking pockets.

  120. Pancho & Lefty
    11:06 pm on November 30th, 2013

    Yeep! Look at the Friend of the Month! Devil, devil, devil dog and Wose, or at least her legs, one hand and part of on arm!

    TEDDY!…And ROSE!….Wooooooo!…Holy Cow, I am almost happy it is not me this month…heh!heh!…Congrats to the two mighty, but small Plunderers!…Zow!

  122. Pancho & Lefty
    11:13 pm on November 30th, 2013

    It won’t be long now before Ruff Rider weighs more than Wose. She’s not much bigger than Belle Starr.

    11:15 pm on November 30th, 2013
