    Good morning, everyone! Aaaaaachoooooo! Oh my, we think Pookey is allergic (to politicians). Could we consider banning them?
    Have a terrific Thursday :)

    Whoa! Allergic to Members of the Nation Within? That Guy’s a Goner, Politically speaking. Heh.
    (as a side note…who knew old HH was partners with one of my kind?)

    Yes! Good Morning Hounds and All.

    Good morning. Interesting article. We didn’t know that fact about HH either. I think everyone knows about Roosevelt’s Fala. He was photographed with him a lot.

    You will need an umbrella around here today. Things will really start popping outside now. Luckily, we got one of Jessica’s 4 garden beds prepped and planted – 4 lettuces, radishes, spinach, and beets.

    Then relaxed with a cookout and a nice Merlot.

    Have fun today, ML.

    Thinking of Boobear’s mom and Rose.

    And speaking of Rose, if anyone has heard from her (or Grizz) Could you let us know? We are all worrit about her.

    For Staff and the Awesome one: Weather forecast for Thursday, 2nd of April at the old homestead: Sunny and bright.

    Good morning all.

    I live in Wisconsin and do not read anything about that person.

  7. Masquers
    9:07 am on April 2nd, 2015

    BooBear: You, Linus, and your mom…on our minds too.

    HOH: Worrit here too…sending out a search party.

    ML: Today is the day. Have fun!

    BB: Heh, heh.

    Mom said she had a nice time yesterday with the boys and she even brought them home for us to jump on and greet! And just look at the fun plaque they gave her:

    HRH B, sorry about the run-on sentence.

  10. BearSpiritDog
    9:22 am on April 2nd, 2015

    Hounds: Looked OK to me!

  11. Masquers
    9:40 am on April 2nd, 2015

    Where is our esteemed Prof. B this morning?

  12. B.Stover
    10:00 am on April 2nd, 2015

    I’m here.

    I feel sorry for anyone who is allergic to dogs.

    HOH: There is a missing apostrophe as well.

    Good morning all. April showers here as well, along with thunderstorms.

  13. Tupper's Mama
    10:05 am on April 2nd, 2015

    Good morning all.
    Welcome to the states, Oh Awesome One

    Just got a new picture from up on the hill.
    Dan the Dog is still a puppy, and excitable, so Zoe wisely was taking introductions slow. But River was fascinated with Dan, and apparently, the feelings were mutual.

  14. BearSpiritDog
    10:09 am on April 2nd, 2015

    Dan & River! the 2 Pups are Pals!

  15. B.Stover
    10:17 am on April 2nd, 2015

    Dawson: Love the picture of the Waxwings.

    Tupper’s Mama: Thank you for the pictures.

    Masquers: I really like your title and picture for AJ’s book.

  16. Herd of Hounds
    10:37 am on April 2nd, 2015

    HRH, can’t sneak a punctuation mark over on you :) We were too busy angsting over the missing period but felt something else was wrong.

  17. BARB, MAGGIE AND LUCY
    10:52 am on April 2nd, 2015

    River is the spitting image of his daddy. BTW, where did that expression come from? Maybe we don’t want to know. Newfies usually love kids.

    I have never seen that many waxwings together before. Loved the picture.

    HOH, someone sent me that same message the other day. It was on a sign at a garden center somewhere.

  18. ML
    11:01 am on April 2nd, 2015

    Good morning all. I have come down with stage fright. I need to go wash my hair and start to get ready, but…

    Happy warm April day to all. Details later…mayyybe 😉

  19. Tupper's Mama
    11:29 am on April 2nd, 2015

    ML – he knew you in high school – hardly the best looking age for any of us. You are gorgeous now. He will be so happy to see you, and remember – this is just lunch. Relax and have a good time, laugh at old memories and be comfortable with someone who already knows you.

  20. Luna
    11:40 am on April 2nd, 2015

    ML: We are blurring your way to give Gary the once over. No offense to your pack of little dogs, but they may not be as intimidating as several of us larger dogs. It is important that Gary know there are many who care about you and are adept at grabbing pant legs should intentions be less than honorable. It was Wyatt’s idea. He wanted to go it alone until the Thieves convinced Wyatt that he’s not the bad a$$ he fancies himself to be. He was very shocked to learn of this.

    More to ML: Remember a gentlem doesn’t honk the horn, he comes to the door. More to remember—a firm handshake is a great way to communicate ‘I had a nice time, let’s to it again.’ A bit tighter and it can communicate, ‘make a move and say good bye to your pant legs.’

  21. Tupper's Mama
    11:42 am on April 2nd, 2015

    Luna – good to know you are on the job. Can’t think of a better chaperone.

  22. Luna
    11:42 am on April 2nd, 2015

    I focused on the firm and ignored the loving side of my paw in my last comment. ML: Have a wonderful time! If you see Pancho disguised as a waiter and Lefty disguised at Pancho, don’t be alarmed. They made a promise to Wyatt to keep and eye on you. They may be thieves, but they try to honor their word.

  23. Masquers
    11:47 am on April 2nd, 2015

    Luna! Lol.

  24. BooBear
    11:59 am on April 2nd, 2015

    BooBear checking in. So far, status quo. Linus is much weaker but holding on. Mom told him it was ok to go to Dad, but I guess he will pick his own time.

    Love the pic of River and Dan the Dog!

    Also love the title and picture for the cover of AJ and Rebecca’s new book. Mom and I think it should be a serious consideration for them. It could also be good if it has stories interspersed written by Luna or the Thieves. You know, the chapters are in italics to set them apart. Humor for the dog lovers.

  25. BooBear
    12:05 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Oh, and a confession. The first time RioMas tracked a flight on this blog, I thought it was the name of the website that Rio and Masquers were using to get the flight info. DUH!!!!!!!! I promise I figured it out pretty quick.

    Oh, and back to AJ and BDHW’s book….it would have stories of Mollypop and Dima and others running beside the team (AJ has said that he actually has seen them) and his new name given by the Elder. So many good memories and stories to pick from. This is exciting. Rebecca, start your outline!! (and start with the story of how you and AJ met!!)

  26. BearSpiritDog
    12:16 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    B & Hound’s Mom: What missing Apostrophe? What missing Period?

    Woozer! All Great Ideas for AJ and Rebecca’s New Book! er, I mean He Who Is Not Cold For He Has Good Dogs and His BDHW, SnowBella of Snowhook Kennel.

  27. Siber's Mom
    12:19 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    River will not grow up allergic to dogs.
    That is a cute picture of River and Dan

    ML…No Buts…

  28. B.Stover
    12:35 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Bear: (In case your question is real)–It’s spring! We are so excited, we wet out plants.

  29. ML
    12:36 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    I couldn’t be in better paws! There will be no honking, as we are meeting there, just a BBQ joint, nothing fancy, so my chaperones may have to disguise as a busboy.

    My internet keeps going in and out and it is making me very antsy as it is my connection to the world. I don’t know what to make of it.

  30. Tupper's Mama
    12:42 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    ML – Internet in and out may be a message to stop depending on computer connections and get out there in the world to talk to people.

    Or it may be your provider screwing up.

    Have a rib for us.

  31. Dawson
    12:44 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Yikes!
    Lots to do to empty this old house. I am overwhelmed right now but first things first. Today is moving day for Dad.

    ML: Waiting for details. So glad the Thieves are on the job.

    Bohemian Wax Wings! That was only a few of the birds that were there. They come in a swarm of 20 to 30 birds, eat their fill then leave.

    I’m reading every other word – my brain is not functioning properly (what’s new). AJ and Rebecca have a new book?

    Thanks for tracking my flight yesterday.

    Will be back later tonight after the dust settles.

  32. Herd of Hounds
    12:57 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Lucy is missing, just a note said something about a sandwich sign outside the BBQ joint. Pookey is in the hall to the Ladies’ and Gent’s disguised as a string mop. If others are needed, get in touch with the mama dog. She will reign in the troops (reign, we’re no stinking horses!)

    ML ENJOY!

  33. BearSpiritDog
    1:08 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Dawson: The New Book is only in the Rumor Stage at present. But since it is a Story Begging to be Told, we have all paws crossed that Our Friends at the Kennel will give the idea Serious Consideration.

    Macy’s Mom: Enjoy your Lunch with an Old Friend.

  34. BearSpiritDog
    1:10 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Dawson: P.S. Go Back to Yesterday to see proposed Title and Cover Art.

  35. Masquers
    1:11 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    B: Bear’s question was real. He was looking at the wrong post.

    Dawson & Staff: We will be thinking of youse today as your dad (and your family) goes through these changes.

  36. O'Howlers
    1:19 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Are we too late to wish ML to have a good time? We were thinking this was a dinner date. ML, relax! Enjoy!
    BooBear, this waiting period while someone we love hovers between both sides of the veil are stressfssul, but it is a good time for communicating between the two. We in PA are anxiously awaiting the other big news you hinted at.

  37. Masquers
    1:29 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    What gives? Our little weather guy is wearing a coat, hat, and scarf. A while ago it was pouring rain. Now, I just looked outside and there-is-something-white on the deck. Carpola! Is it snow or sleet?
    Strange weather. Mom talked to her friend in Omaha yesterday and was told it was 84 with a big storm on the horizon. Dropping temperatures expected.
    Howlers: Big news? We missed that.

  38. B.Stover
    1:43 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    I did some checking based on a comment Philip Walters had on Facebook yesterday. In 2001 his parents were killed in an automobile accident. They were in their early 50s and he was 18.

  39. Herd of Hounds
    1:51 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Stover, wow, that could explain some things. Mom’s mama was 53 when she passed and our mom was 23 then. Her baby bro was 1 week before 18. That affects people for a bit.

  40. Herd of Hounds
    1:53 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    HRH B, may we have at least partial credit for this correction?

  41. BearSpiritDog
    1:55 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    B: We were wondering about that. Had a Feeling it was Something Serious.

  42. B.Stover
    2:16 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Someone commented on Philip’s post: “I’ll never forget that knock on the door.”

  43. B.Stover
    2:17 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    HOH: Excellent! Now I feel better.

  44. Herd of Hounds
    2:32 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Security through grammar? Knowing truisms? Having faith that some things are correct and do not change? HRH B, we thank you for supporting us in these linguistic and “scholarly” (at least through high school) beliefs.

  46. Herd of Hounds
    3:37 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    BSD, we spent the lastr 3/4 hour listening to Cindy Abbot talking about the race with dogs that weren’t hers but a desire to show that even if someone says, “your’re sick”, you can still function.

    Oh, oh, boomers beginning here, BYE

  47. BARB, MAGGIE AND LUCY
    3:54 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Anxiously awaiting news of the DATE. Not often one of the Plunderers has one of those! In less you consider one of the married couples having a date night.

    Nicole has asked me to fill in for her tomorrow. Dog, that girl never wants to work her 3 days!

  48. Herd of Hounds
    3:59 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Sorry, we cannot help with a date (dried fruits? Yetch) but here in
    TN it is froggy, boomy and rainy! Yawn, time for a nappy!

  49. BearSpiritDog
    4:26 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    She should be back soon. The Date was either very, Very Good, very, Very Bad or zzzzz time.

    Barb: Did you ask a few weeks ago if anyone had seen the film, “The Judge”? We did in October and liked it. The critics kind of panned it saying there was too much going on. But to our way of thinking, families and life are messy, and this film showed that a lot goes on in families. Our favorite quote was when Robert Downey, Jr., pats his big brother, Vincent D’Onofrio, on the shoulder, and D’Onofrio’s brother says, “Don’t pat me. You don’t get to pat me. I’m the oldest brother. I’m the one who gets to pat people.”

  54. BearSpiritDog
    7:06 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Nana is still searching for a Free Version. Good Luck with that!

    ML, Report in, please.

  56. Herd of Hounds
    7:47 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Found #3, Miss Julia Plans a Wedding, but before that have a Lawrence Sanders/Mc Nally we haven’t read before and an Ian Rankin. Using Ross as a motivator in case Rankin isn’t as desireable. We hear mom and “reading time” calling.

  57. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    7:57 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Nana, you are not going to find a free version. What about Netflix or Red Box?

    MaryLou, where are you? Have you been carried off by a knight on a white horse?

    Our Internet was out earlier, so if we disappear later tonight, don’t be concerned.

  58. Herd of Hounds
    8:19 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    We bet ML is trying to round up lots of ankle biters who tryed to escape this afternoon just to show her!

  59. ML
    8:50 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Here I am. AT&T and I finally got me back in business.

    He got there 15 minutes early and texted me what kind of car he was in, so off I went. He was waiting outside, obviously nervous, with a rose. We got our food, with me keeping an eye out for any out of place characters. I must say that they did a very good job of blending in. We talked a lot, he apologized for breaking my heart, we talked a lot of “what ifs”. I can’t remember if I told you that he lost his wife the month after Rick died. He has 4 adult children and 19 year old twins still at home with him. He wanted to go somewhere else, but we couldn’t think of anywhere, and I was talked out, so we said goodbye for now after an hour and a half. The only evening we have off in common is Saturday, so it will be a week before that can happen. Sorry no romance novels details Barb!

  60. Herd of Hounds
    9:06 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    ML, it sounded like a nice afternoon. Sheesh, youse don’t want a boy toy, do you?
    We as a herd are in agreement that you made the Plunderers proud. Yeah gal!

  61. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:31 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    ML, that all sounds really great. Was he still handsome and did he make your heart go pitty pat? Sounds like a wonderful afternoon. So ironic that you both lost your spouses so close together. You really deserve some happiness again. You both have gone thru some really difficult times.

    Book!…So how did I miss Snowhook’s book deal?….grunt!….There is a Title and Cover Art already?….snort!

  63. Rio - The Evil Pug

    ML!…I’m glad she is alive and safe at home again…snort!

    Maskers!….Justified! Eva!…WOOOOWHEEE!….I did not see this coming…snort!

  65. ML
    9:56 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    He is bald on purpose, that pretty red hair all gone, but then it probably isn’t red any more any way. He is lucky to be alive. Years ago he fell asleep while driving and hit a moving train. As someone would say, YEEP!

  66. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:58 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    So let me get this straight – he has 6 kids, 4 adult and 2 still at home. You have the 2 girls. So that is 8 kids all together. Big family gatherings if you two get together!

    Heading to bed soon, as there is work on the horizon.

  67. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    10:07 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Oh, also, the rose was a very sweet touch. We are impressed with that.

  68. Rio - The Evil Pug

    11:06 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    ML: I think it is great that you and Gary got together. He is an old friend and it was quite sweet of him to bring a rose.

    Dad is now in his new home. It will take some time for him to figure out that this is a good thing.
    It’s a beautiful home and he has a large bright bedroom with his own bathroom (with a bidet!) right next to it.

    Wose: I heard from our Wose today. She is lurking because she is feeling down. I am sending her some sunshine to chase the dark clouds away. I hope it can get through all the raindrops. Love you forever Wose, the small and mighty.

  71. ALR
    11:13 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Chuckle, chuckle……Barb is thinking of the big family gatherings and Rio is relieved ML is home safe and adds in an “Oh Brother”!

    From here I think it was as it should be, old friends getting together with hopes of seeing each other again….and yes, the rose was a nice touch.

    So HOH is up for another visit to Miss Julia’s house. I always smile about that! The latest visit for me will be Aril 7th when the newest book comes out. I pre-order! I spare no expense where Miss Julia is concerned.

    And I loved the proposed book cover for the up and coming tales of He Who Is Not Cold Because He Has Good Dogs. Let’s just say it WILL be written!

    I don’t know a lot about how exactly self publishing works, but I can heartily recommend a book called Dear Bob and Sue. It is by Matt and Karen Smith, and it tells of their travels one year through each and every National Park. They tell it through emails to their friends, Bob and Sue, hence the name of the book. I went to a major booksellers to buy a copy for a friend for her birthday, and could not find it on the shelf. The information person looked it up, and it turns out it has to be ordered……because it is PRINTED ON DEMAND! That may be a great way to get a book out there. There is no listed publisher in my copy. These folks have a website, www dot dearbobandsue dotcom and they are also on facebook. What a long winded post, but maybe this info can go in the pot for the greatest dog musher book ever.

  72. Tupper and Gilly
    11:14 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    ML – we are happy that you had a nice time. We are happy that he brought you a rose. And we are happy that you have tentative plans to get together again. Smiles are a good thing.

    Dawson – sending positive energy to everyone in your family. We know this is hard for everyone, but it really is a good thing.

    We add our vote for a Snowhook book. Both Bella and AJ are great storytellers, and it would be good if certain miscreants had a voice in the book too.

    Saying good night from the east coast. Tomorrow will be a sunny day.

  73. Herd of Hounds
    11:16 pm on April 2nd, 2015

    Dawson, TY so much for the Rose news. Thought she might be lurking.

    ROSE…YOU ARE LOVED AND MISSED!!!!!!!

    Rio, I replied to your SDD.
    I am exhausted after watching I don’t know how many episodes of Breaking Bad this evening. I swear, I now know how to make you know what.

    ML, I am glad your date went well! WooHoo!!!

    Wose, I will send you some NM sunshine and hugs and love.

    Night All

    Hey Rose. Just popped in to say Hi to you and the rest of the blog peeps. Mr.Staff is sitting across the table from me eating some more cherry pie with ice cream. No cats this evening but just a bit earlier Henry was trying to eat a sesame crunchy thing that Dawson had put down on the table.

    Yes. They get on the table

    The house is strange without Dad on it.

    Oops Here come Keiko and Mr.F. is moving his plate. snicker.

    Riõ! Still catching up on Justified. Mum’s the word!

  78. Thieves!
    12:18 am on April 3rd, 2015

    We may have had to improvise, but on the whole, the date with ML and Gary almost went off without a hitch. It was the admittance that Gary broke ML’s heart that got us. The thought of someone hurting ML made us drop a tray of ribs and wings. We were in plain sight! Gary looked our direction, but luckily, Wyatt came to the rescue. Gramps is still funny about hanging from his tail and Rio said he was busy adding midwife—there must be a story there—to his business card. Fortunately, Wyatt insisted on coming with us. Wyatt lowered himself by fishing line from the ceiling, pointed his paws at his eyes, then to Gary’s eyes and back to his eyes to send a message that we have our eyes on him. This was the subtle distraction we needed. Thanks to Wyatt, we were able to clean up the spilled ribs without anyone being the wiser that we were even there. Whew!

    Wyatt may not be a natural thief, but he makes us proud anyway. It was that kind of on the spot thinking that made this mission a success.

    Wose: Mama Luna has you by the scruff and is calling for reinforcements. Savannah and Coach are gearing up to do a lot of growling at any darkness that may be lurking. Savannah is a born nurse and Coach is a love, but both are fierce protectors.

    Someone here is up with the birds, and just in case someone there is up too, Hi to our BFF Rose.

    Forecast for today..lots of sunshine on the way…it’s going to be
    a Good Friday ^..^
