    Gooood morning everyone! Heck, of course we are good for hearts! It takes lots of heart to love unconditionally! Here we are at finally Friday and hope ya’ll have a good one.

    Good morning all. Happy Friday. Barb admits to not walking me due to some sort of knee issue. She would like to start some walks with Josh holding my leash. I tend to pull a bit, even tho I have been to obedience school. She is afraid I might pull her off her feet. I would never do that!

    Hey, it is not just hearts that we help. Mom just came across this link on facebookie. Look how good us 4-leggeds are for 2-leggeds.

    Maybe HOH. But we think the real reason is just because we are so darn cute and adorable. And good for hugging.

    Melanie: Yikes! Did Deb catch the ermine?

    What is an ermine?

    We know for sure that big black bunnies will not go into a live trap.

    Dogs are good for the heart – except for the time when Mollypop fell through the ice on the koi pond. That almost gave me a different heart condition.

    Good Morning!
    We have heard tales of the Wiley Weasel who cleverly turns into a White Ermine come winter snowfall…the better to hide from predators.

    Cold icky weather here today. Jack is coming over for a few hours but we will be staying in. Mother’s Day will be cold too, and not warming up till next Mon. or Tues.

    Staff, Are many of those bedding areas going to be planted with flowers?

  14. O'Howlers
    10:26 am on May 10th, 2013

    We are having a beautiful day here, after rainy days all week. It is supposed to go up to 80! It is already 70. Our grass is high enough for a husky to hide in.

    Mom said that her Moon Man was not good for the heart. He had as many lives as a cat does, and Mom lost a year of her life with every one. There was the time he slipped out of his collar when she was moving him from a car being dropped off at the mechanic, and he ran down very busy Rt. 73. There was the time he got loose on a hike and found a yard of chickens and she heard a gunshot. There were many many more.

    Here’s an article about the ermine (stoat). The fur is used for royal robes. (Type “ermine robes” in Google and look at the images.)

    A beautiful day here in Westchester might be hitting 80, with a chance of rain later during the afternoon.

    O’Howlers, I am so excited that you were the first winner in The Have Harness, Will Travel fund. I just need to get the right sized envelope, and mail will be coming at ya.

    O’Howlers: Misha Moonman! A dawg after my own heart.

    Mr. Staff: We Enjoyed the Pokey La Farge Video of last night.

    B: The information on Ermines is Very Interesting. Thank you for the link.
    (whispering) the name ermine sounds much more exotic than sloat, which doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. snicker.

    11:22 am on May 10th, 2013

    Howler’s Mom: We are waiting for the part of your Moon Man story that was bad for your heart. Everything so far sounds normal to us.

  22. O'Howlers
    11:26 am on May 10th, 2013

    Bee, Thanks for posting the link on the ermine. We here agree with BSD. Ermine sounds like a name they took on to make themselves sound mure elite than they are. Kind of like Pancho & Lefty taking on the names “Paul and Leo”.
    Wose, we are twirling about that envelope you will me mailing to us us us.
    Mr. Staff, we were so excited when we read your post this morning, that we posted there even though Admin had officially “opened the door” here this morning.

    Belly, my momma said that I am the only Momma Day’s present she will ever want. Well, make that me, and the tomatoes and peppers she is going to plant in the garden on Momma’s Day.

    P&L: I know for certain that the point where Misha hurt Momma’s heart was when he told her he was leaving. sniff.

    Hi, just simply come to be aware of your own weblog into Yahoo and google, and located that it’s actually insightful. My goal is to watch out for the city. I will enjoy if you ever proceed this kind of in the future. Many folks will probably be helped from the writing. All the best!

    Aw Kat: You’re breaking my heart. It’s good that your mum has you to take care of her.
    Thanks for telling me about the Mr.Staff link from last night or I may’ve missed it. That’s some good music. I don’t see why he and the Mrs. don’t zip over here and take me to that concert.
    OleyHowlers: Congrats on winning the Have Harness, Will Travel prize.

    Good morning all. If you want a good laugh, you should see mom when I am on an unauthorized walk about. She is running down the middle of the street to slow down traffic, all the while yelling at me to go home. She says that the chase is especially taxing at night, when I am the color of the darkness. Maybe if she would take me for more walks…nope, I would still enjoy making a break for it, which as I recall is how I would up in the local Pooch Boutique (animal shelter)

  36. O'Howlers
    12:45 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Gardening Peeps, are youse guys familiar with “False Forget-Me-Nots”,a.k.a. Siberian Bugloss? Mom calls them Siberian Blue Eyes because their color matches our eyes. She had them growing at her old home, and dug some up and re-planted when she moved to this farm. She said they multiply very easily, and whenever new ones popped up, she knew that more of our kind were destined to move in with her.
    The sad part is that when the Big Project was done 4 years ago, those were all dug up, and they have not made an appearance since then. Our stone wall is being rebuilt this summer, and she wants to plant them after that. So if you know how she can find them, please tell us. She misses them.

    Oleys, We are not familiar with those at all but I bet Melanie or Staff know what they are.

    Jack helped Barb in the garden yesterday by pulling up a big handful of Arugula. He said he was pulling weeds. She got them stuck back in the ground quickly, but she told him to ask before he pulls anything. Dog help his mama’s garden this summer!

    Kat: Our Lady has always said the only bad characteristic of a dog is their ability to break your heart.

    Macy: You’re a girl after our hearts. Our lady says wonders why it is always a black dog goes on a midnight stroll and a silver and white dog named W.L. that goes on a wonderabout in a snowy landscape. We like to keep her on her dew claws.

  41. Barb & Maggie
    1:29 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Barb just picked up the new Lisa Scottoline book, Don’t Go. Was on the waiting list at the library. She is one of Barb’s favorites and Wookie’s Dad’s too. Wonder if he has read it yet.

    Time for a little reading and then a little nap. Perfect afternoon.

    We were watching some cartoons from the folk’s childhoods. OMD they were violent. The dog catcher was shooting at the strays! I had to fold my ears over my eyes and that is not easy. In all fairness, the pooch in question had fallen into a cream pie and looked like a “mad dog”, but still…

    Painted “sea shell” at Fulton Beach.

    2:13 pm on May 10th, 2013

    B: It is true. Charlie played a significant role in the destruction of the harnesses. He’s covering his eyes with his ears in shame and refuses to come out. His ears are massive—we may never see him again. We have a theory, if he can’t see you, you can’t see him and give him a disappointing look.

  55. Rose

    2:22 pm on May 10th, 2013

  58. B. Stover
    2:24 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Doc: I would never give Charlie a disappointed look. However, harness is not good for him. Tell him to bite on chewees instead. He can even get beef-flavored.

  59. O'Howlers
    2:25 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Wose, That’s it! Now we know where we can buy those! Thanks Thanks Thanks. We want to give them to Mom for Mom’s Day, but the new wall will not yet be built. We will just bookmark it, and maybe give them to her for Kat’s Birthday.

    Macy, the only cartoons we watch around here are Rocky and Friends, starring our long-ago big brother Boris Badanov. In that one, thee was less violence, and more silliness.
    Oh, and yes there was “Boris, Dahling”.

    One of Mom’s very favorite books is A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini, who also wrote The Kite Runner, which she also liked. He is releasing a new book (finally) on May 21: “And the Mountains Echoed”.

    4:20 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Oleys, The Kite Runner is also a favorite of Barb’s. We had just seen that his 3rd book is coming out. She read his first two.

    Scottoline’s new one grabs you from the get-go!

    Regarding cartoons, the Road Runner is sort of violent too when you think about it.

    Also when Barb watched part of Peter Pan with the kids, she was surprised that it was so politically incorrect towards Native Americans. It came out probably 1n 1955, and Barb had not seen it in years. She would NEVER buy it and have it for the kids library of videos.

  77. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:22 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Road!…Runner!…heh!…That was one of my friends favorite cartoons…snort!… She always pondered about the word “Acme” and never knew what it meant for the longest time…heh!

  78. Barb & Maggie
    5:27 pm on May 10th, 2013

    So what does Acme mean?

    We have been without internet and landline phone for two days. My entire neighborhood has been off the grid. One reason it took so long is that they had to bring in some heavy equipment and do some diging a couple of blocks away. They should have called me to help but how could they do that when my phone was out of order.

    Road Runner…That was also my mom’s favorite cartoon and she always rooted for the coyote. Talk about backing a loser.

    6:18 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Barb(and Maggie) If Mr.Staff has his way, and he usually does, there will be giant zinnias, cosmos, and his new favorite, coleus in the garden. Where ever there is room. He plants them in rows but they don’t look like that once they grow. We save the seeds over winter but always buy a few more for interest.

    I didn’t check last nights posts so didn’t know Mr.Staff was sneaking some Pokey into the blog. He has been playing it really loudly for about a week. Ever since we got home.
    Dawson, I tried to get him to come to MPLS for the concert but he doesn’t want to do all that driving.

    Now I have to go back to last night and see which Pokey he posted.


  83. B. Stover

    The definition of “acme” is “the highest point or perfection.”

    Speaking of which, I just got some new Malbec wine and it is perfection!

  84. Barb & Maggie
    6:54 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Thanks Rio. Actually Barb liked Road Runner too. She just felt sorry for Coyote for all those accidents.

    Staff, Coleus likes shade. How does it do in full sun? We love it too, and have some in pots on the front porch, which gets no sun. There are so many different shade available, so it is one of our favs.

  92. Staff
    7:44 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Barb, I am of the same opinion as you. Coleus=shade. But no one told Mr.Staff and two years ago when I was spending the summer at the parents helping out he bought himself a coleus and put it in the garden in full sun. There is a little shade later in the evening, but that is all. It did fine. It grew to be about 2 feet tall and wide and bushy!

    That was a very wet year. He hardly had to water once. I think that plus the newer varieties are more tolerant of sun is the reason it did well.

    Last year I put one in the shady part of the garden just east of the vine covered fence and it did lousy. Mr.Staff put his in the middle of the garden again and it did much better than mine. He had to water it a lot though.

    So things have changed in the coleus world.

  93. Melanie

    Hello all, Nope I can not catch up today. I thought I’d be able to . . but I’m am zonked from that car fiasco.

    I thought I’d spend the evening watching Elementary, but it’s not on Amazon yet. Sigh

    Anyhoo, here is Riley of the DogParent Twelve. He is black with white paws. Looks like his Daddy (Jonah) and is as big as Frank.

    Do we have any fans of “Enders Game”? The movie trailer is out and it looks good. Not sure when the premier is. Mom isn’t one much for science fiction but she liked the series, especially “Speaker of the Dead.”

    Riley is a handsome guy. SiberH, soooo gald to hear from you. B.: Wasn’t the point of all the roadrunner stuff being ACME part of the humor?

    We watched Game Change last night and it was really good. Julianne Moore did a great job as Sarah Palin. We got it from Netflix but believe it was originally an HBO special. Very interesting to see what went on in the background before the election in 2008.

    Staff, after what you said, we might try a Coleus in the pot on the south side, which gets almost full sun.

    Now time for a little tv then bed time.

    Nighty noodles.

    Coleus!…While her mother is off to Iowa (soon, very soon!) my friend says she is going to plant whatever she wants in all the pots and the little garden spot they created last year…snort!…Coleus is definitely on the menu for the patio pots…chuffle!…Beau and I love the patio pots.

  119. Paul & Leo
    9:14 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Yes! Peter is Our Favorit Author!

    BSD: An Outlaw by anyother names smells a lot like not getting caught. Yet.

    Peter and Paul are really Pancho and Lefty?
    Lol They must be trying to cover up their thieving ways with New Testament names.

  125. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:25 pm on May 10th, 2013

    SiberH!…heh!snort!heh!…Beau was just getting ready to post something about Biblical Names and sins of the Father…snort!

  126. Siber-H
    9:25 pm on May 10th, 2013

    About being off the grid, Rio. Do not be surprised if it happens again because they have a long history of not getting things fixed the first time.

  127. BearSpiritDog
    9:27 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Rio: Dawg knows it is easy to Lose the Thread.
    As far as we can tell this is how it all came down…Pancho & Lefty posted at 11:22 as themselves. Immediately thereafter the O’Howlers made the comment about the Weasel taking on the uptown name Ermine to sound more Elite. Then a couple of hours later Paul & Leo appeared posing as the Innocents not the Outlaws that we have presumed them to be.

    Oh wow! Nana, last name and all. Wowzers. We are very impressed.

    oRio, we will do our best to ‘splain the thread, even tho sewing is not our thing. Ermine is the name weasil varmint use to make themselves sound more elite. We likened that to those varmint formally known as Pancho and Lefty, going by the elitist names of Paul and Leo (as in diCaprio?)

  130. O'Howlers
    9:30 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Ph boy, we are slow at typing tonight. We’re officially embarrassed now.

    9:31 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Outlaws!…So the Outlaws are using Assumed Names now…snort!… How long do they think they can get away with this deception?…heh!

    ‘Paul’ and ‘Leo’ stole the idea from a post by the Howlers this morning. As to sins of the father, well, the Outlaws were begat by me. Mostly me. Annabelle also played a significant role.

  135. Masquers
    9:38 pm on May 10th, 2013

    9:38 pm on May 10th, 2013

    SiberH: Glad you are back on line.

    Melanie: Riley is a cool looking dude. I saw a Newf walking with his friend around the lake yesterday. Don’t see one very often. Looked like one of yours but no.

    S-i-l got her revenge tonight at cards and won both games. I didn’t swear except for once. Carpola! Turtlemans turn next week, I suppose.

    Finally planted the violas that Staff left here. I have 7 more sunflower plants growing but haven’t figured out how to bunny proof them yet. Also about 8 watermelon plants and a whole bunch of a flower called Love Lies Bleeding, although the plants don’t look very hardy.

    G’day to LizF.

  141. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Howlers!…What kind of pepper plants…sniff!…Someone (not me) wants to know…grunt!

  142. Tenzing
    9:44 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Rio: No apology needed. They’re mine, but we run in the same circle as W.L. He is the father of Garrett, Abe and Marco. We’re bring them up right in the ways of Outlawry.

  143. Siber-H
    9:49 pm on May 10th, 2013

    I am so confused. How did I get the name Peter out of the name Leo.
    Well, It hasn’t been a great baseball week.

  144. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:50 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Mr.Tenzing!…We never really hear about the antics of Garrett, Abe and Marco…sniff!…I don’t believe they are real Outlaws…sniff!…Not in the Pancho and Lefty sense anyways…heh!

  145. Tenzing
    9:57 pm on May 10th, 2013

    W.L.’s boys are the youngest members of the race team. And, believe youse me, they learn quick. They may not be master theives like Pancho and Lefty, but they have their ways. Evil, evil, ways…

  146. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:00 pm on May 10th, 2013

    10:01 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Jesse, long time team member, first time poster, here. Today was not the day I planned. Early this morning, the Giant loaded me up and took me to a place I’ve never been before. He called it something like a Low Cost Play and Puter Clinic. I thought that meant I could be on this here blog all day. It didn’t. I’m furry on the details, but all I can tell you is I have more room in my nethers and we brought home a dancing giraffe. My Lady says I’m fixed…had no idea I was broken…

  148. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:05 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Jesse!…heh!snort!heh!…I know I shouldn’t laugh out loud, but I just did…grunt!…It hurt! Being a first time poster you sure did a good job…chuffle!…Go watch the giraffe show and be comforted that you will never have to worry about your own little Outlaws and you can have all the fun you want when you are off-duty….chorkel!

  153. SnowBella
    10:23 pm on May 10th, 2013

    I worked from home today. Our driveway is a mud bog and getting to the point where it is impassable. I’ve almost became stuck a few times this week. I’m trying to drive on it as little as possible in hopes that it will firm up.

  154. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:26 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Rockies!…Are only down by 3, but they are a BIG 3…gasp!…Red Birds pitcher, Shelby Miller is unhittable…grunt!…Why oh why can’t I have 2 or 3 Shelby Millers on my team???…sob!sob!

  156. SnowBella
    10:32 pm on May 10th, 2013

    A watched SDD never decodes, but I will keep an eye out for any incoming messages. Wheeze! I’m heading out to do chores. In the mud. Yuck!

  157. Riö - The Evil Pug

    10:41 pm on May 10th, 2013

    Masquers! You made me howl (and I never howl)….snicker…when you said “Siber: Forget about Peter…he’s with Mary.”

    Sorry Mr.Husky, but that whole exchange was hilarious.

    I think Paul and Leo should just accept Pancho and Lefty and deal wity it. heh heh heh

  160. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Miller!…I am awestruck. We almost saw a Perfect Game thrown by the Red Birds Shelby Miller….gasp!…Our own Eric Young Jr. got on first and stole second. That was IT…grunt!…The rest of the game was Shelby Miller’s. Could have been a perfect game but for our EY…wuffle!… All youse other baseball guys better watch out for this young Shelby, he is awesome!…grumble!

    I can think of two boys that oughta visit that dancing giraffe clinic. We seem to be experiencing a baby boom. The problem is that Chad is no longer with the gal, who is still in high school. It makes my head hurt to think about it all.

  166. Pancho & Lefty
    1:23 am on May 11th, 2013

    Wolfie: Oh, dear. Please escort your mom to the quilt where she will be comforted. Did we mention it was a Low Cost Play and Puter Clinic? Don’t tell Jesse it was low cost. He is under the impression the Giant and our Lady spared no expense to get him fixed.

  167. Macy the min-pin
    2:14 am on May 11th, 2013

    Wolfie, is this a baby for EACH of the boys now? If so, YIKES! Maybe the high school girl’s father will give him the NO cost play and puter.

    We are all loading up in the a.m. to go to the low cost poke and prod clinic, yippee *sarcasm font*.

  168. O'Howlers
    7:06 am on May 11th, 2013

    Wolfie, wouldn’t itbe lovely if we could herd 2-leggeds off to those low-cost clinics like the one Jesse went to. Well, maybe, things will be o.k. We have seen little boys grow up in a hurry when babies are involved. Sure hope so,for the young girl’s sake.
    Rio, we fell asleep as soon as we postedthat we planted peppers, so we didn’t see your question until now. We planted 8 pepper plants, but only 2 are hot ones: habaneros and jalapenos. The others are Chocolate Beauties, Purple Beauties, Gypsies, California Gold (orange), Lady Bells, and Baby Bells.

    First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually
    wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Appreciate it!
