    Wow, what an honor! The Pack thanks Chet and Bernie and Admin and Spencer for that post! Oh, they are lining up . . . All taking a bow at one time . . . Snigglefritz! Where’s my camera? . . . . Too late, they’re all asleep again.

    Have a couple of Birthday Cakes to deliver. I’ll just take them out of the huge cooling area . . . (echoing sounds of foot steps, some grunts, “Jeez, why did I make them this big . . .shuffling sounds coming back)

    Okay here we go. I have to deliver these now because I’m off to the acupuncturists!
    Me and Wöökie!

    Well, it was late at night when I baked that cake up and frosted it.
    That should read “Royals’ Mum”

    Love the video, the music and the under water shots at beginning and end.

    Good morning all.

    Let them eat cake! All day. Another great job by the Cake Baker Supreme. And a Happy Birthday to Macy and Mum.

    Nice to see Bear up there in the place of honor, finally!

    Hey! It’s just like looking in the mirror!
    Thank you Chet & Bernie, Spence & Admin.
    for that and for Melanie’s video link.
    Melanie! Those cakes look very delicious.
    a Happy Birthday to Macy and pups
    and a Happy Birthday to the Royal Mum
    Good Morning and a Wonderful Day to All!
    Bear is feeling tip top this fine day.

    Happy birthday to Macy and the Royals’ Mum. Don’t eat the whole cake at once!

    And Bear – finally!

    Happy Birthday to Macy who can have her cake and eat it, too. I wonder if Mr. Redbone has anything special planned.

    Happy birthday to the Royals’ mum. T&G and Herb Kats, please let your mum’s birthday pass without finding either pair in or out of a box or holding packing tape. Let her focus on her clay.

  13. BearSpiritDog
    9:55 am on July 5th, 2011

    Yes, Masquers and Everyone
    As our Chet would no doubt say
    I am feeling tip top today!

    Happy Birthday, Royal Mum!
    Happy Birthday, Macy & Pups!
    Enjoy the cakes Melanie baked!
    and save a sliver for us, yum!

    A warm, sunny, lovely day here.
    I plan to savor every moment.

    Good morning everyone.

    And a Happy Birthday to Macy and the Royals’ mum. May your day be filled with blessings and cake especially for you. Melanie has made sure the cake part is fulfilled.

    Melanie: Wow! The place of honor. Congratulations.

    BearSpiritDog: The friend of the month. You have been retroactively placed from the 1st of July. Yea for our friend.

    I’ve lots to do today after taking it so easy yesterday. No more slacking off. But first…better check the auction!

    ARC!….The ARC is still rightfully in the paws of one of our very own Plunderers….Woooo!….It just feels right this way….sniff!

    Yawn!….I did not get any sleep at all last night because I was taking care of my friend…,snort!…She sure hates those firecrackers and canons they were letting off All last night…sniff!yawn!

    Big Birthday Doings! Happy Day for Macy and the Royals’ Mum.

    I really enjoy Melanie’s videos. YSAS the famous actor and Melanie the famous director.

  18. Basil and Sage
    11:03 am on July 5th, 2011

    WooHoo Melanie – you are (excuse the expression) TOP DOG today! Right along with BearSpiritDog who is now reposing in his place of honor.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MACY!! You get right into that cake, girl! It will never show on your petite, girlish figure.

    Ummmmm Melanie – Mama loved her cake, but…we should have known better than to let the Corgis order the cake from you. They didn’t tell you that we contributed too, did they? Ok, so she is the Royals’ Mum (stinkin’ Corgis are ALWAYS rubbing that in) but she is our Mama too!
    Can you maybe, just maybe come up with a cake that is befitting of Superior Kats? Otherwise, we may just have to get out that packing tape and box again…..

  19. dawson
    11:14 am on July 5th, 2011

    Oh yeah…and Happy Birthday to the Herbs’ mum, too.

  20. Masquers
    11:15 am on July 5th, 2011

    ARC! 333.33 – a very auspicious bid by our very own guy (or gal, as it may be)

  21. Melanie
    11:28 am on July 5th, 2011

    Dear Herbs, I received the cake that you made for your mom. It was weird. I know Kats like fish, but . . . ?

    The cupcakes are cute, but . . .?

    So without further ado, here’s The Herb’s cake to their Mom . . .


  22. Siber-H
    11:30 am on July 5th, 2011

    Welcome to the two new members of the Snowhook Team!! I know you have found a good home.

    Happy Birthday Macy!
    Happy Birthday to the Royals Mum!

    I hope both of you have a very special day.

  23. OleyHowlers
    11:58 am on July 5th, 2011

    Happy Birthday to Macy, and to the Royal Mum (and herb cats mom). Thanks Chet, Bernie, Admin, Spence, for putting Melanie’s pack video on the blog. We especially love the rug that awaits at the bottom of the ladder.

    And HURRAY for FOTM Bear !!! You look great up there, and we are glad you are feeling tip-top!

    Wookie: For the pesto recipe, do you add minced garlic or not? It isn’t mentioned in the recipe that I have.

    Happy Birthday Macy and Mum!

    Love the cake from the kats. Better eat it before it eats you!

    Dawson, Hope you realized that we were just kidding you about the auction. We were not being seriously grumpy about you out-bidding us.

    Barb&Magpie: I see the blog is acting up again this morning. You got a Double Dawson while my posting advised it was a duplicate then whisked it off into parts unknown.

  30. Barb & Maggie
    12:40 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Wow, we just did a Double Dawson. How funny!

  31. Wolfie Wigglebutt

    Mom had fun at the fireworks last night. My Aunt Sue lives on a residential street and the whole neighbor buys fireworks and lights them in the middle of the street.

    I’m glad I was there because it was really loud and scary. But in the middle of the fireworks, a Weimaraner ran by in an absolute panic. Mom caught him and put him in the car with the air-conditioning running. It took the owner an hour to arrive, but mom said that she really enjoyed visiting and cuddling with this beautiful doggie.

    12:45 pm on July 5th, 2011

    LOL. Melanie – that was just what we all need. A great laugh and smile to start the day. Thank you! BTW, just how often do you have to refill the pool daily? – they each must carry off 1/3rd of the water every time they get out…whole lot of shaking going on (I’m just saying.)

  33. BearSpiritDog
    12:45 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Nice kake from the kats kourtesy of Melanie!

    **wasn’t there.

  35. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    12:53 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Stover — no, we do not add garlic here; it’s great without garlic. Anyway my mom’s family (on her mother’s side) comes from the Abruzzo region of Italy when they do not use garlic very much if at all. Wookie

  36. Barb & Maggie
    1:12 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Melanie, Are you in the pool while filming? Hope so, that way you can keep cool, too.

    1:14 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Update!… Well, there is nothing to update because Auction Central has come to a complete stop as of now…snort!… What’s wrong with youse guys? Don’t you know this is for a good cause?….snuffle!… There are lots of Items that have Hardly been bid on, like my friends project for example…grunt!!

  38. B.Stover
    1:19 pm on July 5th, 2011

    I’ve sent the cookbook to Liz. Without the pictures it’s 110 pages. I included “List of Contributors and Plunderers” so all will be named. (I used the alphabetized Who’s Who.) I also added Snowhook’s friend,Jodi Oxenrider, who contributed a jam recipe. SH’s Dog Biscuit “recipe” is the last one. The dedication page is: “We dedicate this cookbook to Chet and Bernie, Spence and Admin without whom the Plunderers would not exist.”

    Think I’ll have a large glass of Cahors…..

  39. Basil and Sage
    1:28 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Melanie – Now THAT’S a Cake!! Mmmmmmmm – tuna flavor cake with salmon mousse frosting and little anchovie fishy decorations! The grey icing on the shark – smoked bluefish! What an inspiration!
    Mama said that it was just too beautiful to eat…then she said maybe she would have some later…….much later….
    Not sure Basil and I can wait! We invited Alice and Abby and Gus and BooBear and BlueCat and Masquers and Buddy and TC and all the other Kats to come, so if they show up, we’ll just have to cut the cake before Mama is ready to sample it.
    (Guess we should ship a slice to Siber too – after all, he is half Kat…giggle)

  40. Basil and Sage
    1:31 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Bee – want some of our cake to go with that Cahors?

    Are we too late to write the recipe down to be put in the cookbook?

  41. Basil and Sage
    1:34 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Rio – Tupper and Gilly are off at the park trying to be adorable and get people to take their pictures for money. Something about needing more funds to bid on auction stuff.
    We would bid, but there’s no salmon flavored toffee, or catnip mousies, so to heck with it. We’ll let the dam Corgis bid.

  42. Mollypop
    1:36 pm on July 5th, 2011

    I want to know where the Facebookie guys are. They cried and sobbed and carried on for the Snowhook patches – they should be helping out here. Where are they? Huh, huh?

  43. Melanie
    1:41 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Usually I sample the cakes. I’m glad I didn’t this time!

    Congratulations B. Stover!! Whew, enjoy that glass of wine.

    Yes, I was in the pool when taking the video. The dogs take out a lot of water, but since it’s been raining forever this is not a problem.

    We’re waiting for Dan to come home. Which should be any minute. . .

  44. B.Stover
    1:49 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Basil and Sage: Sorry but it’s too late to add any more recipes. You are listed as the author of one of them but I can’t remember which at the moment.

    I’ve just opened the bottle of Cahors to breathe….I’ll have a glass with dinner tonight.

  45. Siber-H
    1:51 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Very well said, Mollypop!

    ok, I’ll go along with being half kat just to get my share of the cake.
    Those are all very professional cakes from Melanie’s Barkery. Mom is really impressed with the shark and the ocean.

  46. Masquers
    1:53 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Basil & Sage: A Party! How Fun! (whispering) even if we ARE eating your mum’s cake. Heh! Do you think she’ll mind too much?

  47. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:59 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Advertising!…. Maybe some of youse guys who like to visit out on facebookie can go drum up some business out there. Some of youse who aren’t sitting pretty on one of your favorite Items that is…heh!….Snowhook Kennels has bills to pay you know!…grunt!…Especially when the Race Team gets back from their summer job….snort!

  48. BearSpiritDog
    2:05 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Congratulations on a job well done, B. I know you will enjoy your Cahors. Well deserved, I’d say!

    MollyPop: Yes, where are they, Hmmm? Maybe it would help if Chet put in a personal good word – from the top dog himself.

    Rio: We think the reason the bidding has slowed down is because most folks have gone back to work after the long holiday weekend. It should pick up again in the evenings.

  49. Basil and Sage
    2:07 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Masquers – Mama is very generous spirited – she says we Kats can have the entire cake! She said something about having to watch her girlish figure, but for some reason, we think she has another reason. Must be that she loves her Kats best!
    phhhhbbbbttttttt – Corgis

  50. Basil and Sage
    2:32 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Oh well, sometimes you have to work even on your birthday. Mama says we have to turn off the ‘puter, clean up the cake and let her get ready to go work for the Crazy Lady. That will age her, even if the birthday doesn’t.
    Hope to talk to you all later tonight. And Mama says thanks to everyone for the nice Birthday Wishes.

  51. Melanie
    2:41 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Riö, I put something up everyday, as does a lot of The Plunderers!

    We’ve got to light a fire under some Facebookies’ patoooties!
    Any Ideas?

    Dan is home. The Pack is delighted! He is getting well drooled.

  52. Melanie
    2:42 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Hey! There’s a Newfie at the top and he’s not one of The Pack! Very handsome!

  53. dawson
    2:59 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Don’t worry Pug: The bidding will pick up again as the deadline looms. My new strategy, after being over-bid a few times…is to bide my time until close to the end, then come out with all bank accounts emptying at once! Ka-boom!! I have to watch it though, because I will be working a 12 hour shift on the last day.
    I promise not to take my squeaky car into the shop before the end of the auction. Heh.
    Barb and Maggie: Those hot dog hot pads are still a bargain and I find it very hard to resist a bargain. No promises were made.

  54. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:59 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Melanie!…You put something up where everyday?…snort!….What are you trying to tell me?…sniff!

  55. AbbietheKitty
    3:13 pm on July 5th, 2011

    So now you let everyone know your last minute bidding strategy. Watch out kiddo.

  56. BearSpiritDog
    3:18 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Melanie: “as does”? WWBSS (what would B.Stover say)

  57. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:20 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Bidding!….Well, if there is no bidding going on, me and my friend are going to go read somewhere quiet. Somewhere without the constant nagging sound in our ears….grunt!

  58. BearSpiritDog
    3:34 pm on July 5th, 2011

    If I could package this Perfect Day
    and sell it – I would make millions!
    Clear Blue Skies & a Balmy 73 Degrees.
    Sending some of it your way, my Friends
    if only I could, I would – Bear

  59. dawson
    3:37 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Darn it! The pug made me reveal my strategy…I’ll have to change it again. Carp! My toast is burning. Aaaargh! That dam pug! It’s all his fault.

  60. dawson
    3:59 pm on July 5th, 2011

    oh hey!
    Thanks Bear. I’ve got the perfect day too. And a bowl full of ice cream for an added bonus. Yippee!

  61. C. Harris
    4:13 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Thanks B. Stover and thanks in advance to Liz re the cookbook. I left the blog just as the idea was being discussed so I am anxious to be able to see and buy the finished project. Thanks everyone who participated. I love cookbooks and you guys have already proved to be good cooks in previous posts.

  62. B.Stover
    4:14 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Just heard the first cicada of the summer. Love that sound!

  63. BearSpiritDog
    4:37 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Dawson: The ice cream is, indeed, an added bonus!

  64. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:42 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Revealed!….Dawson’s bidding strategy sounds a lot like everyone else’s bidding stategy…snort! …I learned my lesson bidding against Nattie…heh!…You just wait Nattie, my time is a comin’…snort!… We have not seen any bids from Redbone yet, he must be playing his cards close to the vest too…chorkel!

  65. B.Stover
    5:22 pm on July 5th, 2011

    I just watched the Monk episode with the monkey. Hilarious!

  66. dawson
    5:39 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Rio: I don’t think it’s advisable for you to tell the whole blog who is bidding or not. There may be many reasons for bidding or not bidding and we don’t expect our bids or lack thereof to be broadcast by the bid recorder.
    For instance…if you kept the information that a Plunderer has the high bid on the Arc to yourself…then another Plunderer may have upped the bid thinking a facebookie had the Arc.
    Now if the bidder wants to disclose…that’s up to them.
    My personal opinion.

  67. dawson
    5:43 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Oh no!
    Somebody upped the bid on the Arc! Is it a Plunderer or a facebookie? Please Rio, let us know right away!

  68. dawson
    6:09 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Just kidding.
    Did anyone go look?

  69. Melanie
    6:12 pm on July 5th, 2011

    I didn’t! I wanted to read through the rest of your comments first.

    You are soooooo bad!

  70. Melanie
    6:16 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Okay, I put a “check it out and explanation” of the auction on our web site’s log!

    Maybe that will bring some people in who have some money!

  71. Buddy and T.C.
    6:55 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Basil & Sage: Is there any cake left? We want to come up and help you eat it up!

  72. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:55 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Dawson!… If you want the ARC bad enough you will bid on it whether a Plunderer has it or not. So don’t give me any bull-crap about my update regarding the ARC hindering future bidding. …grunt!… If you don’t want Auction Central updates then the simple solution is for you not to read Me or Wookie’s posts…grumble!…If I twirled and did double back flips you people would still find something to grip about…grump!

  73. Kirby T. Penworthy
    7:17 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Hey, y’all! Mom just got home so I just got caught up on the blog. Now I have to go check on the auction. Last I saw I still had the winning bid. Dad wants to know what I’m bidding on, but I’m not telling him ‘cuz it’s a surprise!!!

    Be back in a little bit!

  74. Kirby T. Penworthy
    7:24 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Yippee! (singing) I’m still winning, I’m still winning!!!

    So I think everyone should just stop bidding right now and we can call an early end to the auction. Oh, but then we won’t raise as much money. How about this — do any of you open just one present on Christmas Eve, because the anticipation is so high? I think we should end one auction item early!!! Oh, and if it just happens to be the one I’m bidding on, well, that would just be a pleasant surprise! Waddya say???

  75. Liz
    7:33 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Hi all! Hi CHarris! THanks and congrats to B, you’ve earned your Cahors today.

    Wolfie, big ups to your mum for saving that poor frightened Weimaraner.

  76. Melanie
    8:19 pm on July 5th, 2011

    KirbyT. I agree completely. (as long as it’s my item on top bid on right now!)

    A cold treat for dogs! From a friend.

    Dog Ice Cream
    1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
    1 very ripe banana
    1 cup creamy peanut butter.

    Stir it up and place in freezer!

    I don’t know sounds pretty good to me . . .

  77. Melanie
    8:23 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Whew, Dan is great. He’s already asleep. Lots of talking and looking at pictures. He had a great time.

    I need to sleep now!


  78. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:31 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Dan!…After the really rough and tough year he had last year and part of this year, we here are so happy he got to go on a real vacation….snorkel!…Dan is the Man! We love him….sniffle!….Say, his books are doing really well on the auction. Some lucky guy, gal, dog or lowly Kat will be the proud owner of one or all of his books …snort!

  79. Snowhook Bella
    8:33 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Oh, the restraint! Writing a check payable to myself seems to defeat the purpose, but watching the auction from the sidelines has been an exerice in restraint.

    Team update: Our two new team members as of yesterday come from the female leader that trained me when I first started running dogs with my mushing mentor. I can’t wait to meet our two new boys!

  80. dawson
    8:37 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Melanie: I’m pleased Dan had a wonderful vacation. That ice cream does sound good.

    B.Stover: A job well done and finished! (hooray) Deserves a glass of Cahors. Thanks for all your work.

    Snowhook Bella: Looking forward to some details on the new doggies.

    Rio: Don’t you “you people” me you, you, you twirling, back-flipping pug, you.

  81. dawson
    8:41 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Snowhook Bella: AJ’s bringing home some boys, eh?

  82. dawson
    8:57 pm on July 5th, 2011

    Here’s hoping all the fireworks are finished, no fires were started and the four-leggeds get some good sleep tonight.

  83. Snowhook Bella
    9:01 pm on July 5th, 2011

    I just had a carpola moment when I saw the typo in my last post. What in the world is ‘exerice?’—I have no idea.

    Dawson: Yes! Two yearling males, I believe. He said one is like our rescue (and leader), Rory and the other is like Willie who passed away a couple of years ago. Willie was love…a very hyper, very large, love. Back-flipping pug—Rio is more agile than I’ve imagined.

    I’m so glad that Dan had a good vacation. It sounds like he’s worn out from his vacation. I’m jealous of his nap…Coach and Bev are running my ragged.

    Thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes, and to Melanie for the very comfortable looking cake. There was another Min-Pin on the pictures when we came on. Back off. Welcome brother Pin.

    Belle said to remind you that it is hers and Holly’s BD today too. Not the pups, however. Their big day is in January, which if you look at one way was a “birth day” for me too.

    I thought we were going to go out celebrating earlier, but I wound up at the v-e-t. I have been a little sluggish lately, but who wouldn’t be in this heat. I was a perfect lady until the doc started messing with my “do not touch” area. I won’t put up with that from anyone. She gave me some thyroid medicine to perk me up. The only thing that is going to perk ME up is a high in the 70’s. I don’t know how you long haired guys stand it. I am practically down to my skin now!

    Happy Birthday, Macy and Royals’ Mum!! Macy, we know what you mean about heat. Boy, is Texas hot this summer…and dry. Our lake is getting lower and lower. Soon you will be able to hopscotch across it because there are so many islands where water used to be. So stay in the A/C, Macy. Ladies should be cool and collected (what does that mean, anyway? B?)

    Thanks for the hard work on the cookbook, B and Barb and soon Liz. Sounds like it has turned into quite the project.

    Auction, auction….we are still high bidder on 2 items, but the other 2 we really want are slip, sliding away. The electric bill came in Saturday and scared Mom and Dad silly. But there may be a way to up a few bids. Hmmm, should we wait or go for it?

    OMD! Dad took Belle and Annie out in the truck. I did not want to go because of aforementioned heat. When they came home, there were banana SNOWCONES all around. Mmmmmmmmm banana!

    Dear Basil and Sage,
    I would bid. It is for Snowhook after all. But where would I put a twirling pug? My grand-parents would trip over him and his toys and I would be out the catnip.


    sorry pugster

    Blah!… blah!blah!…Go the Kats! They are just mad cuz they have never ever come up with a viable idea to raise money for Snowhook…nah!nah!nah!…heh!

    Abbie – we think it would make a wonderful antenna decoration – twirling and spinning in the breeze as you tool down the highway at 80 miles per hour….
    yeeping at the top of his lungs.

    Basil and Sage,
    Come to think of it that would be an interesting idea! Also maybe a slightly too heavy lightning rod? snicker…
    I suppose it would break and he would crash through the roof.

    Nah, can’t do that either…

    You know he is very resourceful and full of great ideas. I think we better keep him.

    Yes indeed, we could not do without our pugster!

    Yay, Bee sent the cookbook all the way across the ocean!

    We haven’t had a good night’s sleep here, either, since Mom got sick last week. She’s fine now, but they didn’t get home last night — or should I say this morning! — until well after 1 o’clock, and by the time we all got to bed it was much, much later! Plus, Mom had the usual day-after-a-holiday rush at the library today. And tomorrow promises to be even busier, because a steel drum band is playing at the library! Well, outside the library, anyway. Everyone keep your paws crossed for pleasant weather in the morning!

    Goodnight, y’all!
