    Good Morning! I AM FIRST !!!!

    Why does that title say “In The Nighttime” ? From what Mommy tells me, Chet had some of his most harrowing days in the heat of the desert daytime.

    Yeah, we don’t get the title either, but the Q&A is interesting. Can’t wait to read the story on Aug.14th.

    Emmett, the Frenchie, survived his heat stroke yesterday, but by the time they got him to the vet his temp was moving the other way and was down to 95 degrees. Had to put blankets on him and were going to IV him if need be. He returned to normal on his own and appears to have no permanet damage. Lesson learned; don’t take a black, pudggy, smooch-faced dog for a wak in the extreme heat!

    Barb & MagPie, Riö and Beau will love to hear that! Not how sick he got . . duh, but how he doesn’t have to go for long hot brutal walks.

    Read this yesterday. Excellent job. Just want to know who was answering the questions. Admin? Peter, Spencer? Audrey? Pearl? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Bella, I know understand what the heck was going on with Rose! That was just weird.

    YIKES! Our house was flamingoed!!

    Actually, that photo was taken by Klaus Nigge, from the National Geographic.
    You can download the photo for your computer wallpaper. I think it would drive me nuts.

    Interesting interview.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning Melanie. BTW your pumpkin and squash garden worked better than the idea we read about and tried. We took a bale of straw, added some compost and dirt on the top and then planted the squash seeds. Doesn’t work, as it dries out too fast plus the plants didn’t get enough nutrients. Bad idea that we won’t try again. But your’s is lovely!

    Barb had to drag all the trash out this morning, so those little jerks didn’t have an opportunity to throw it all over the road again. Baa-humbug! Loved the idea of th flag on the mailbox. I guess even little vandals will respect the American flag.

    Gotta go, time for Barb to get a haircut. BBL

    I think the “nighttime” in the title is a take on Mark Haddon’s novel, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time” which is a take on Sherlock Holmes’ remark in “Silver Blaze”: “‘The dog did nothing in the night-time.’ ‘That’s the curious incident I was referring to.'”

    Interview!….What a great interview…snort!…Much more fun to read than the obituaries …grunt!…Spencer sure gives long answers to those questions. When he talks to me it is in short, clenched-teeth type sentences….sniff! burp!

    Publishers Weekly is the Big Time! It is a very good interview.

    Sam, I don’t understand why you don’t like your salmon kibble…maybe it takes a sled dog to appreciate it.

    Barb, I am glad Emmett is going to be okay. Flat-faced dogs cannot take the heat or too much exercise. We have seen a few in distress at the dog park or out being walked.

    Miz Macy – Ah could neva forget about mah sweet an sassy lil ole gal. Ah keep your picture right next to the place Ah sleep under the swing on the porch, next to the magnolia tree.
    But these are the lazy days of summer here in the southlands. Cain’t think of nuthin but sweet tea and palmetto leaf fans and jist dozin’ the day away waitin for the cool evenin breezes.
    Ah didnt think you would want too much company these days. No ladies like to be seen when they are “damp”. We’ll be gettin back to them submarine races you like so much once this dagblamed heat turns off.

    10:46 am on July 18th, 2012

    Hmmm…I either had an advance look at the interview on facebookie yesterday or jumped one day into the future. Yesterday’s interview was in very small print and had to be read with a microscope. This is much better.

    Barb: Good news about Emmett. It is our humble opinion neither two-leggeds nor four should be out in the heat.
    Rio’s Friend has come up with a new schedule for the brutal walks so he and Beau will be safe.

    Macy: You see? Redbone could never ever forget about you.

    Happy Wednesday Kat and All.

    You are welcome BStover.
    I sent this one with tracking (as I did with Mr.Bear to the Howlers) I learned my lesson with the Market Dog book. Tracking is the way to go!
    Of course Rio told me that long ago but I had to learn it the hard way.

    Staff: A delayed triple/double Dawson over two days! Did the Market Dog book ever arrive at its destination.
    Melanie: At first I thought your “friends” put all those flamingoes in your yard. That would be something to wake up to. Heh! (Sorry B)
    Redbone: I’ll come to this jam session. I loved the link Staff gave you…really got me jigging around…add a little moonshine and watch out!

    B: Reference to “the nighttime” does make it more mysterious.

    Mr. Redbone! Kool and I are ready…bass and sax in hand.

    Stover, It is because they have difficulty breathing, even under normal circumstances sometimes. Heat and too much exersie makes the problem much worse. A flat face is not what nature intended for a canine. Man created the flat-faced breeds.

    Here is another happy music link. I heard it on the radio (NPR) on my way to the quilt shop yesterday morning and noted the singer.
    Just a happy bouncy tune. About diners.

    I had an appointment at the groomer at 10 this morning, but the groomer called and moved it back to noon because her husband was delayed at work and wouldn’t be home to help her until then. ha, ha, ha, It takes two of them.
    Mom says I am molting. I say, who cares.

    After the groomer, we are having company so I will be away from the blog for awhile today. I will miss the Rockies game this afternoon…call the ASPCA!

  27. Barb & Maggie
    1:11 pm on July 18th, 2012

    Sammy, You are lucky that MPM takes such good care of you and gives you a treat on that boring kibble.

    Barb is back and after telling the girl 3 times not to cut her hair as short as last time, she did! Barb is going into hiding and will not have to look for a new “groomer” for quite awhile after she moves! She got one of those summer buzz cuts like the Newfies get. Ha ha ha, she looks funny!

  28. BearSpiritDog
    1:18 pm on July 18th, 2012

    Staff: Diner! Tunes and Cheeseburgers – what could be better?

    Magpie: Tell Barb to ask for “just a trim” next time – tell the one doing the wonderfluffing she wants to let her hair grow out. This will give her a “normal” cut instead of the shearing she got. But, I guess there won’t be a next time since she is moving soon.

  29. BearSpiritDog
    1:19 pm on July 18th, 2012

    Barb: I know Princess Sam can sympathize.

    Great interview, Spence.

    Hot, hot, hot. Close to 100 today in the Nation’s Capitol. Fortunately, the Cherokee Purple tomatoes are in full production now (two plants) and boy are they yummy. See below.

    Hey everyone – we are late joining the party today. Been a very busy morning.Yesterday, the weather was just awful. They kept saying on the news that people, especially the very young and the older folks should STAY INDOORS with AC or a fan and spritzer bottle at the least. Mama was working inside at her table and heard a noise out back. There is our Gramp, in the backyard with pitchfork, shovel and wheelbarrow. He has decided this is the perfect day to dig out the old stone wall.
    After Mama chased him back in the house, forced a litre of water down his throat, and lectured him about appropriate behavior for this weather, he sat for a little while. Then she heard noise again, and he was on his hands and knees scrubbing the baseboards in the bathroom, getting them ready to paint.
    When this morning dawned icky and sticky and humid again, Mama duct taped Gramp to his chair, turned the fan on, turned the tv on, gave him the remote and a big glass of ice tea and asked him to spend just ONE DAY not getting into trouble.
    And now he simply does not understand how giving his dog a bath and weeding the garden could be “trouble”.
    Mama says she already has one item ready to go for the next auction. We just need to figure out how to ship him.

    50 degrees with a light rain. My dogs, thankfully, are almost done molting and no longer look shaggy and uncared for. If everyone involved needs to take valium when taking Lady to the vet, I’d hate to think about what it would take to get her to a groomer. I give her a double dose as it is to take her to the vet and even then she has to be muzzled. She’d have a nervous breakdown for sure if someone was brushing, washing and drying her. She won’t let me do it so why would she let a stranger? Fortunately she loves swimming in the lakes on the flood plain so that helps. In the winter she rolls in the snow.

    On a better note: Sadie Bear has lost all her winter weight going on brutal walks on the flood plain (and doing hills twice a week) that I am able to temporarily change her name to Sadie Baby. She actually crapped out on us two days ago and an hour into the walk she vanished. I wasn’t concerned for a while thinking that she had gone off exploring. But when she didn’t reappear, I spent an hour envisioning her falling into the river and drowning or being caught and killed in an illegal trap. After all, why wouldn’t she come when called? Lady and I finally made it back to the car only to find her resting in the shade waiting for us. #smartdog/toopoopedtocare

    Wöökie, those look wonderful.

    T&G, please tell Golinka that I would love a picture of Gramp ducted taped to the chair.

    It’s amazing how much clapboard is getting replaced.

    I’m resting now. Pool time is off for the moment. It’s Too Darn Hot!

    I’d bid on Gramps! With him around I might catch up on my to-do list chores.

  35. OleyHowlers
    2:45 pm on July 18th, 2012

    The bidding would be high on Gramps!!! Great idea!

    C.Harris…Sadie is smarter than any of us. We would run loose if we could, but it wouldn’t be to the car, no matter how much shade is there.

    There is a line of very bad storms headed our way! yeep!

  36. BearSpiritDog
    3:17 pm on July 18th, 2012

    Nana wants to know your secret, Gramp.

    Wookie: Beautiful tomatoes. They would go well with our tuna salad.

    C.Hobbit: I forgot – was it Sadie Bear that had the tangle with the porcupine?

  37. Staff
    3:24 pm on July 18th, 2012

    I am jealous of those Cherokee Purple tomatoes. We have hard little green one.


    Now I am going to take an afternoon nap. I think it will feel just fine. I hope Dawson gets one also.

  38. BearSpiritDog
    3:39 pm on July 18th, 2012

    Everyone is taking naps. Sounds good to me.

  39. Barb & Maggie
    3:58 pm on July 18th, 2012

    We also had a little nap. Barb is in the bathroom, checking in the mirror to see if her hair grew while we napped. Nope, I don’t think so! That “just a trim” is a good idea, but that gal is never getting near her again. We will remember that line for another time.

    Those Cherokee Purple tomatoes lokk wonderful. They are one of our favorites. We couldn’t find them this year, so we have a Black Krim ready to sample tomorrow. Supposed to be similar. That will be our 3rd tomato. The 2 Box Car Willies were good but not great. Would rate them a grade B. Smaller and average taste.

  40. Tupper and Gilly
    4:25 pm on July 18th, 2012

    We have lots of green tomatoes – every plant is loaded. Gramp heard somewhere that you are supposed to shake the plants to distribute the pollen, so every morning he goes out and wrastles them. Must be working.

    BSD – Gramp’s secret is that he just simply cannot sit still. He can’t do it. He has never sat through an entire movie, rarely makes it through a tv show. Mama remembers the time they took a weeks vacation at a local lake cottage. Gramp took work vacation at the same time – and NO ONE got a chance to hang out on the beach that summer. Every day Gramp wanted to go here and there and do this and that, when all Gram wanted to do was sit, unwind and relax, and the kids just wanted to swim and fish.

    After that time, Gramp never took work vacation when they were at the lake. Everyone was much happier.

    My Dear Niece Kat, I see you may have pulled up a few of Mom’s flowers. Well, tell your Mom to chill out because you are a Flower Child and are practicing in case you are needed in a wedding. Were they red flowers?

  42. Mollypop's Mom
    6:06 pm on July 18th, 2012

    I got a big surprise when I went to Sam’s house on Monday. Their drought is worse that I have ever seen! If someone throws a lit cigarette out the car window, the whole neighborhood will be ablaze. This is Sam’s lawn.

  43. Kat
    6:12 pm on July 18th, 2012

    Aunt MollysMom, Thank you for understanding. I knew you would. Mommy is just too hard on me, don’t you think? The flowers were yellow; I ate the red ones long ago.
    Mommy has 2 outdoor speakers that she also uses as flower pots. One of them has been mostly empty since Springtime, courtesy of yours truly. But the other one looks just as it did when it was newly planted, huge red flowers and all. I am keeping Mommy guessing on that one. Tee hee.

  44. OleyHowlers
    6:16 pm on July 18th, 2012

    Oh my dog! That is pretty much how our lawn looked last year during our drought. It was so bad that they had to buy a portable fence to get the horses to the only green grass on our property, thanks to some underground springs.

    Mom wondered who she should call should she see some stupid jerk toss a cigarette from their car window in draught conditions. She never did figure that out. Anyone know?

  45. Barb & Maggie
    6:21 pm on July 18th, 2012

    The lawns around here look like that too, and normally the grass is dormant and will turn geen again when the rains come. However, a local landscaper, who usually mows lawns in the summer, said that some of the grass is breaking off at gound level. He thinks many lawns will have to be reseeded next year, because they are not going to come back.

    Oleys, I remember that! Your mom took a picture of the horses eating grass enclosed in the portable fence.

    Snickering here BlueKat!

    Our lawn does not look that bad. Bad, but not that bad.

    The storms we were supposed to get formed 20 miles south of us and then headed to NYC. I guess some got to OHs too.

    Our house is now partial gray (primer) and brown. We are closing off one window where the water leakage has gotten so bad (winter and the rest of the year) it rotted out the wall.

    Have to go water the garden again. BBL

    I don’t know the score either, Rio

    Fellow Sibers, I can only speak about the law in my neck of the woods, but here a law officer would have to witness the burning cigarette thrown out the window. It would do no good for a citizen to simply report it. What can be done is to get the license plate of the perp’s vehicle, and if a fire gets started, call it into the cops then. In this instance, the law would follow up on it.

    Meet Whizz, a Big Dog Who Performs Big Water Rescues

    Posted: 17 Jul 2012 05:30 AM PDT

    Who’s 168 pounds, stands 6 feet tall on his hind legs, has webbed paws, and is a hero along with being totally adorable? That would be Whizz, the gentle giant Newfoundland dog whose strength, courage, and training give him the ability to save as many as a dozen people at once. Now that’s some dog!

    Whizz is part of the Newfound Friends, a group of dogs who perform and demonstrate their water rescue skills to raise money for children’s charities. Each week the team of 14 Newfoundlands (what a sight that must be!) hit the Cotswold Water Park to lend a paw to lifeguards in training with their drills and technique. They frequent marine festivals throughout the UK, dazzling and awing audiences with their prowess in the water. In addition to being great rescue dogs, Newfoundlands are extremely affable, and guests love taking photos with them.

    Whizz rose to fame in 2007 when he helped rescue another dog from an icy pool. Now he is being hailed as one of the world’s best rescue dogs for his ability to safely steer to shore 12 people who are linked together.

    Whizz and his pack have been featured in festivals and on television shows, and with their visits to children’s hospices, the dogs are simply all-round heroes.

    Good story Melanie.

    We may or may not be back. Big storms going on about 30 miles north of here, with large hail and 70mph winds. The chickens haven’t headed for the coop, and they are pretty smart about these things. It got all dark, lighning started and not a drop of rain. May have missed us entirely, or there might be more to come.

  57. OleyHowlers
    8:33 pm on July 18th, 2012

    We would love to watch those Newfs show their rescue maneuvers! Mom had a best friend Newf who she used to take swimming in the river. That girl would try to “save” every kid swimming in the river. They always thought she was a bear.

    We can’t watch the puppy video on the iPaw.

    Right now they are sopping wet after mucking stalls and grooming horses. Showers are needed for both. But they can’t decide whether to chance putting horses out or just wait for more storms. We wish we would get a storm packing more rain than what we have seen so far.

    Good night from Oley.

    Hi everyone. Mama had an interesting afternoon/evening. Her cell phone was dead dead dead. Wouldn’t even come back to life when plugged in. So off to the phone store. Long story short – she now has the new phone that talks back to you. As if she needs MORE people talking back to her.
    But, the new phone barely has a charge, do we are done for the day. See you all tomorrow.
    And BluCat – that was really funny.

    SiberH!…I read were earlier you said I was “Man-Made”….grunt!…What the hell does that mean?…snort!…Here is why there are Pugs in this here world….dammit!

    “Pugs were bred to be the companions of royalty. They originated in the Far East and can be traced back to the first century B.C. They were considered a royal dog in China, owned by aristocrats and bestowed as precious gifts – rather than sold – to rulers in foreign countries.

    It is believed that Holland was the first European country to see Pugs. William III and Mary II left Holland for Great Britain in 1688 to ascend the throne and took their beloved Pugs with them. The Pugs were outfitted in orange ribbons in honor of the House of Orange.

    Having been bred for companionship from the beginning, Pugs take the job seriously. They are loving clowns and charmers who endeared themselves to nobility and commoners alike. Once a Pug owner, always a Pug owner; their supporters over the years have included royalty, the immortal singer Lena Horne, and the vaudeville great and queen of the red-hot mamas, Sophie Tucker”….chuffle!wheeze!…Pugs are also known to have an unnatural love of Baseball…heh!heh!…Game TIED!…Wooooo!

    Rio, All dogs were bred by man for different purposes. Pugs were bred to be companions. Sled dogs were bred to pull sleds. We were all created by man by selective breeding. Different breeds of dogs did not just walk out of the wild one day to join man by his campfire. You and me, pal, we both have the wolf within us.
    Baseball must have shown up much later in our DNA.
    We are turning in soon.
    night everyone

    BearSpiritDog: yes Sadie was the one who got quilled. It doesn’t keep her from exploring and but it does make her more likely to come when called. Yesterday there was a lot of fuzzbutts in the trees chattering away. Usually my dogs are all over it trying to get at them but I kept them out of the forest and walking towards home
