Lapdogs in Cars and Little Rhody

“Here’s some state legislator in Rhode Island who wants to ban dogs on drivers’ laps,” Spence says. “What do we think of this?”

“I think Rhode Island has other problems right now,” says Admin, “starting with its financial crisis, but let’s throw it out there.”

Welcome Babe.

    I try to ride on laps but my mean family makes me ride in my special car seat. It’s called a Lookout seat and it’s soft and cushy and i can see out, but I would prefer a lap. I’m a lap dog, right?

    Good morning, y’all! When I ride in the car, it’s usually just the three blocks to the v*e*t — not much chance to get the wind blowing in my hair on that trip! Even so, no way do Mom and Dad let me ride on their laps when they’re driving — I’m totally distracting!!!

    I wouldn’t want to drive with a dog in my lap. Brandy always took up the entire back seat and he loved having the windows open.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning all, I have to admit that when all Nine of the Pack try to get in the driver’s lap, it’s a bit distracting. But then, the driver can’t drive either.

    Morning plunderers. Mom lets me ride on her lap all the time. I usually take a nice nap. Mom’s going to check out Sammie’s lookout seat.

    I’m definitely not a lap dog. It’s shotgun all the way.
    Happy Cinco de Mayo to all and a have Good Saturday.

    Moe is a 75 pounder and is always seatbelted in the back bench seat for his safety and ours.

    Hey Jasper, are you in Alma?

  10. AbbietheKitty
    10:19 am on May 5th, 2012

    I’m with you all the way Masquers. Staff makes me ride in the car sometimes and I would rather not. Usually I ride on the floor under anything I can squeeze under.

    Hey Steve,
    Our Mom, Maggie, grew up in Alma. We used to go to Crystal for summer vacations with her family. Way back when.

    Love that picture. When I had Kats they felt exactly the same way!

    YSAS had to get OTAS moving this morning. As he was getting the brother coffee, he called me, and said, “Do you know how hard it is to get OTAS moving in the morning?”

    I replied, “YES!” snicker

    He finally lied and told his brother they had to get to FOTAS’s mom’s house early to put a wedding present together to be used for the yard work today.

    Campground is booked. Lakeside camping spot. Surf fishing area picked out. Bait shop is located. The stripers are running!

    He was so proud that he texted FOTAS that the stripers were running, but it was auto corrected to something else. LOL

  14. Steve
    10:36 am on May 5th, 2012

    We drove through Alma yesterday on our way to Bay City.

    Good Morning, everyone!

    Mary will be reporting for the next two weeks!

    The road trip starts today. Our first stop (Yay!) is Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah!

    Keep us informed Wölfie!

    Masquers, the Weather Kat, check this out! It’s called Rapid Refresh and it takes in the entire continent not just the United States. If you click on the maps to the right side of the page, it gives 3 hour updates! Coooool . . from the other weather geek.

    One more link before I go do some things.
    On our radio station the morning show has a time were the host talks to an editor of one of the region’s newspapers. Snort. Sorry this is sooooo weird.

    They were talking about bills that were coming up in a state near mine. One of them is about banning the practice of implanting Neuticles in dogs. The host had no idea what they were (neither did I). When the editor explain and then said that the bill had been withdrawn. The host said “WHAT?” And I said “WHAT?” Couldn’t believe this.

    This is on their web site. Neuticles allows your pet to retain his natural look, self esteem and aids in the trauma associated with altering.

    Emphasis mine. Now I’m sorry. There is no self-esteem issues in dogs if you love them. This is nuts! (so to speak)

    we love going in the car but they make us sit in the back of the car or on the floor of the show van. We love being with them but it stinks to have short legs and no way to get to a window in the van.
    Our housemate Callie goes with our Gramp in his Trailblazer. He puts the back seat down so the whole back is a big flat platform. Callie sits all the way in the back, exactly in the middle and looks straight ahead. Our Gramp calls it her “Driving Miss Daisy” pose.
    It does scare us to see people driving with a little dog between them and the steering wheel-especially when the little dog is hanging out the window. And really scares us when the driver is additionally using a cellphone!

    11:25 am on May 5th, 2012

    Very funny Melanie. We totally agree with you. Dogs live in the now, they doen’t worry about lost body parts. I have to laugh when people attribute human characteristics to dogs. We have a friend who says things like her dog doesn’t like to have her picture taken because she is shy. She describes another dog park friend’s dog as “stuck up”. He is standoffish, so she says he thinks he is better than the other dogs. Please!

    Glad those stripers are running. We like that better than those other things some guys have at bachelor parties. We think those are a profoundly bad idea.

    11:28 am on May 5th, 2012

    Hey Wolfie, I’m wearing a Best Friends shirt right now. We went there (big place) after we visited the Grand Canyon.

  23. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    11:39 am on May 5th, 2012

    I’m definitely a back seat, head out the window kind of guy. It just doesn’t get any better than that. And best part it means I wasn’t left at home.
    Beautiful day here in Chevy Chase. Our peonies are just starting to break out, and in a couple of days our back yard will be awash in a sea of peonies. My other grandpa (who I never knew) gave my mom and dad a dozen peony plants after they moved into this house, and they are just beautiful when in blooml.
    Speaking of grandpas, my other grandpa who lives with us just had his 93rd birthday on Thursday. They went to Ruth Chris’s to celebrate. I didn’t get to go, but a very yummy doggy bag made it ways back home to me, me, me (as my friend Rio would say).
    Near the trails where we go walkies in the morning, they are set up for the Avon breast cancer walk which is today and tomorrow in the DC area. Mom did the walk with a friend a few years back; I was her walking coach and accompanied her on all of her training walks, but they wouldn’t let me do the Avon itself. It is 26 miles (over two days), which would have been quite a lot of me, even in my youth, although some of the training walks we did were 8-10 miles.
    Hope everybody under the quilt (Rose, Dan, Shiek, and various relatives) are all doing well.

    Dogs riding in the driver’s lap is not a good idea. I would NEVER. I ride shotgun.

    Barb, We have a lady just like the one you are describing that comes to the dog park. She thinks her dog is embarrassed if it has a bit of poop on its butt. She has a hard time letting this dog be a dog.

    Masquers, That is a funny picture.
    I’m guessing it is insecure two-legged guys that buy neuticles for their dogs.
    Wolfie, Looking forward to reading your mom’s reports and we hope she has a great trip.

  25. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    11:45 am on May 5th, 2012

    I did check out the Neuticles web page and it is lol funny. One of the dogs featured as just having received Neuticles is Rocky Kardashian. ‘Nuff said. Smirk. Wookie

  26. Barb & Maggie
    11:54 am on May 5th, 2012

    Good morning Wookie, glad you are felling well.

    Siber, I know, this gal’s dog probably gets embarrassed too!

    Wolfie, Barb loves Best Friends and would love to visit there. We make donations to them and have given memorials in honor of departed friends and companions. We get their magazine too. Will look forward to hearing what you think of the place.

    Rhubarb pie is cooling, after bubling over in the oven and making a huge mess. Lettuce is picked, eggs are in the cooler. Almost ready to go. Will be back tomorrow evening, so have a great day, everyone.

    Melanie – so to speak. Snort!

    Masquers – funny picture. When I go to the v*e*t I ride in a top loading carrier. They had to buy one of those after they couldn’t push me into a front loading carrier. I talk to them all the way, reminding them they’re making a terrible mistake, taking me out of my kingdom.

    Bumper sticker: My windows aren’t dirty. That’s just my dog’s nose art.

    Gah!…Someone is finally back from all her annoying errands that she wouldn’t take me and Beau on…grump!…Got the sprinkler system set up for the Renters. Apparently, the tree guys were there this past week and trimmed two big trees out front…sniff!…Did the renters mention this to anyone? Nope!…grunt!…Anyways, she is finished with their stuff for a while now and can get back to creating projects for the Spring Boutique…snort!

    Awwww Beau.

  31. Gus & BooBear
    12:43 pm on May 5th, 2012

    It’s a good thing your friend and her mom decided to give Beau another chance a couple of months back. He seems to be very, very attached to your friend, Rio, and may not survive another move and adjustment. He has found his forever home (even if y’all don’t know it yet).

    Going to send Melanie pics today to “freshen” of a couple of items but we’re still looking for that perfect donation.



  32. Mollypop's Mom
    12:56 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Beau – You waited for your friend to come back. Patient. Devoted. When she came back I bet you did your Happy Dance.

    Remember Mr. Greedy Guts? Well, here’s a story about him.

    He lives with a Corgi and they visit the dog park everyday. There was a new dog there yesterday, a young female who decided that since the Corgi was smaller than she was she could be aggressive.

    The Corgi did not approve. Barking ensued. Mr. GG leaped to the rescue! He body checked the larger dog and kept his body between the aggressive dog and his friend.

    The owner of the aggressor grabbed his dog and said, “Wow, did you see that he’s protecting her and body blocked but didn’t bite! He’s a good dog.

    What a Heroic Sweetie Pie!

  35. Melanie
    1:51 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Oh, Steve, Moe and Terri, Mr. Greedy Guts is one of the 12 Newfoundland puppies from 2 (?) years ago. The Plunderers were their cyber-dog-parents.

    Steve, I am in the middle of the mitten in Lansing. Mom lived in Grand Rapids since 1990 and moved to Lansing last July when she got a job working for the state. I have been with my mom for three years. She found me at the West Olive Humane Society and took me home to be with her forever and ever and ever. You can see an icky photo of me at the humane society and after I came home with her and after my first wonderfluff on mom’s facebookie. In fact, I think mom should give me my own facebookie so that it can be all about me, me, me!

  37. Rose
    3:53 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Greetings All!

    Masquers, you’re post almost made me splort my drink!

    Rio: I love that picture of Beau. He seems very devoted to your friend, and to be in a nice forever home.

    Melanie: Hope Dan was able to get some rest last night, and feels better.

    GRRRRRR….We were supposed to have good weather today, but it is very cloudy. No Super Moon for us tonight.

    Hello all. Mommy asked me to drop by to tell youse that she is busy mowing and weeding and stuff outdoors. Meaning: Buddy and Iare left to fend for ourselves.

    Mommy makes Buddy and me ride in a carrier, thank Kat. I’m terrified of car rides. The Howlers must ride in the way-back.

    That is a sweet photo of Beau and a nice story from Melanie about Mr. Greedy Guts. sniff…They were such adorable puppies

    We saw the Super Moon on the Wolf this morning before it got light…very beautiful and impressive.

  41. Rose
    4:34 pm on May 5th, 2012

    The OH’s are up on top!

    SiberH: Were you able to take any pictures of the Super Moon? I am hoping the skies clear up a little before tonight, so that the Prof and I will be able to see it.

  42. Siber-H
    4:38 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Rose, No, mentioning taking pictures to my mom is not a good idea when she first gets up in the morning. The moon will actually be more impressive at lower altitutes than where I live. There should be photos somewhere on the internet, but I hope you get to see it in person.

    TC, old buddy, You avatar is up there.

  43. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:43 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Beau!…He’s been following someone around all day, but he didn’t come downstairs with us…sniff!

    Project!…My friend finished another project for the Spring Boutique and I even like this one…grunt!…I asked her if she would let me post a photo of it, but she thinks we should wait till the grand opening. I think the photo is better shown here on the blog than the small ones at the store…wuffle!…She’s thinking about it…heh!

    Melanie!…Get ready! Another photo is coming your way!…Zooom!

  44. dawson
    4:47 pm on May 5th, 2012

    I didn’t know it was a super moon this morning but when I went out I did a double take because it was soooo bright and seemed so close. Now it is dark with rain and clouds so I was lucky to get a glimpse.
    Melanie: I will send that NOAA link to the man back in Canada. He is a weather nut too.
    DogNuts! Heh, heh, heh.
    We all knew Greedy Guts would be a special dog. I’m so proud of him.
    Wookie: Happy Late Birthday to your Grandpa. Maggie will be having her 93rd on the 17th. 1919 was a good year!
    Masquers: So funny…and true story for every cat I’ve ever had.
    Kentucky Derby! I’m betting on a long shot so I win a million.

  45. Riö –The Evil Pug

  47. dawson
    4:58 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Rio: There are a few horses with long shot odds. I haven’t made my final decision yet…
    By the by, that is a sweet picture of Beau.
    And, yes, your friend should post a picture of her creation on the blog.

  48. Tupper and Gilly
    5:00 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Sorry Rio – we can’t watch it until it’s over and we know all the horses are safe. Then we get to watch the reruns. And since Mama waits to bet until the rerun cones on, she always picks the 3 winning horses- but no one will pay her! What’s up with that?

  49. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:09 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Hats!…My friend likes looking at all the kooky big hats…heh!heh!

    5:17 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Peek!…Okay here is a sneak peek at one of the Spring Boutique Items…snorkel!…Created today. Please keep in mind it is very difficult to photograph this quilling stuff and it always looks better in person because of one thing or another, mostly the colors getting washed out etc….grunt!…This one is in a very pretty frame she found. She has ordered a lot more of these frames so from now on all of the 5×7 projects will be in these frames….wheeze!

  52. dawson
    5:23 pm on May 5th, 2012

    I wish they would run the race already…I’m changing my mind.
    Scratch Union Rags and insert Gemologist!

    Rio: Your friend has another Masterpiece! Flowers and puppies…irresistible.

    5:25 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Staff has been taking photo’s for the Musher’s Mercantile. Things are getting a little busy here so she is trying to get them done NOW! She will be leaving to go to Minneapolis on Monday and once there she and her sister will go to visit Brother Chris and his wife Deb in Chicago. Just an overnight trip to say goodbye. Then the day after she comes home she must go to Quilt Market in Kansas City.
    She is so busy that she had to enlist me and AbbietheKitty to come up with some of the gifts. I hope that works out for her. snicker.
    Melanie is going to be busy.

  54. Mollypop's Mom
    5:27 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Rio – Your friends work gets more beautiful with every one she does.

    I’m like the Royal’s Mum, after the accidents of a few years ago, I don’t watch horse races until the replays.

  55. Rose
    5:27 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Rio: Your friend out does herself with each project! I love the frame, and the color of the flowers. Very pretty andsoothing.

  58. Riö –The Evil Pug
    5:37 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Project!…So does this mean one of youse guys will buy it when the store opens?…snort!

    Jockys!…Is it just me or do all those jockys sound like the little people from the Wizard of Oz…heh!heh!

  59. Riö –The Evil Pug

  62. Gus & BooBear
    5:56 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Rio, tell your friend that we bet there will be several trying for that project. Since its a sale, it’s first come, first buy!

    Mom has found several items to donate….more small items than that one big one but that way folks that don’t have alot of money can still buy something or people can add a small purchase with their big one. Pictures will be headed to Melanie tomorrow.

  63. Siber-H
    5:59 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Rio, Your friend had better be prepared. There will be lots of people wanting to buy her stuff. Remember all the gift cards she had to make last year.
    Her latest project is beautiful and love the new touch with the saying about puppies.

    Go SaberKat!!

  64. dawson
    6:02 pm on May 5th, 2012

    I think I have the Oldsters settled…of course they need help just when the horses are lining up.
    Rousing Sermon or Saber Cat it is!
    Be safe all you horses!

  65. dawson
    6:07 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Rio is betting on a Kat? Heh!

  66. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:12 pm on May 5th, 2012

    SaberKat!…Is a long shot!…snort!…But I’ve bet it all on him to winnit!….wheeze!…Every single cent!…Woooooo!

    Dawson!…SaberKat is a Horse…gruffle!

  67. Melanie
    6:20 pm on May 5th, 2012

    We got bored waiting and ended up watching “Earthquake” the old one. We loved figuring out who was who. I think every actor in the 70’s was in it.

    It’s still on but Zoe is tired and went to bed. Maybe we’ll do it on Amazon tomorrow. But I got into disaster mode and I’m now watching “Volcano”.

    Hope a horse wins and not a Kat.

  68. Riö –The Evil Pug
    6:31 pm on May 5th, 2012

    6:35 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Hmmphf!…SaberKat did not win…sniff!…He did not even place…grunt!…I bet everything on him. Beau is going to be out of treat money for quite some time now…heh!heh!

  71. dawson

  76. Siber-H
    7:48 pm on May 5th, 2012

  77. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:24 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Chorkel!…wheeze!…I’ll Have Another, what a great name…snort!…We are back from our walks – damn its still 80 degrees out there..gasp!…Downstairs watching the Rockies vs The Braves….Woooooo!….Clap!Clap!..Clap!Clap!Clap!

    Patsy and I went moon hunting! We went one town over and went up their highest hill. It was beautiful. A large furry friend by my side, the sun setting on one side, and the moon rising on the other. Patsy had cheese to celebrate.

    There was cloud cover at first but I did get some shots. The moon still hasn’t risen here in our valley. I’ll have to get some shots later. Cloudy right now.

    I’ll post some picture tomorrow.

    SiberH!…Are you watching this game?…snort!…I’m really liking Chris Nelson. He is really amazing at the most unexpected times…heh!…He bobbled the ball, tagged the runner to third and then got the out on first, just like that!…Woooo!

    Back from a yummy Cinco de Mayo lunch. The place was super crowded. It’s not really a Mexican holiday, but Americans love to celebrate it. Lots of food and grog had by all.

    Melanie: The old movie Earthquake was filmed at the Ahmanson Center in L.A. where Nana worked back in the day. She and her friends tried to get autographs, but it was difficult to get anywhere near the famous actors on the set.

    Rio: Love the new project your Friend made for the Boutique!!! Beautiful frame and verse.

    Damit missed the Derby. Probably just as well. The winner was not the horse I would have bet on.

    2nd inning–Rockies lead 6 to nothing.
    It would be nice to continue on this path and have a stress free ballgame

    Sammie!… I hesitate to ask, but its been driving me crazy for days now…sniff!…Why do Spencer and DJ, our FOMs, have perfectly white fur around their eyes and you have wine stains up there?…snort!

    Rio, light colored dogs have the dye in dog food come out the tear ducts. My kibble is supposed to be dye-free. Now Mom is trying a product called Angel Eyes and it’s helping. Mom doesn’t see all the stuff Daddy and my boy feed me all day. I like what they feed me, not that stupid kibble, and if it comes out my tear ducts in neon purple I don’t care.

    Yes Rio,
    I know you guys are very happy with Michael. Sobsobsob. You don’t have to repeat it all the time do you? Over and over and over? It is becoming very annoying. sniffle

    Sammie!…I have not idea what mark Zingers, bologna, processed cheese and crackers leave on me and Beau…snort!…The good thing is my friend knows nothing about our snacking habits with her mother…chuffle!

    No fears for the Spring Boutique Rio. Purchasing Agents take care of all the pesky little details for me.

    Melanie and Patsy are in Slumberland dreaming of the Super Moon. Bear is following in their tracks very soon.

    Rio – with the treats you and beau get – we don’t think the problem would be with what leaks out from your EYES!!!
    It’s the other end of a pug that’s deadly.

    9:53 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Moon!…That’s why I need WeatherKat to tell me for sure or not before I venture out into the back yard…grunt!

  112. Siber-H
    10:37 pm on May 5th, 2012

    The ball looked foul to me and I am not just saying that because it ws hit by a Brave.
    I hope a fan is not seriously injured.

  113. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:38 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Injury!…geeze, someone just got hurt again down low in the seats…sniff!…You have to pay attention when you are at the game for those foul balls…sniff!…My friend always does, because they come really close to her..grunt!…You’d think she’d have caught one by now…sneeze!…At least they haven’t had to wheel her out of the field because she wasn’t paying attention…wuffle!…Well someone tonight got hit and they have stopped the game waiting to take the injured person out…sniff!…Its very sad and it should never happen, but some people do not realize the danger of being at the game….snort!

  114. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:48 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Chipper!…Jones is really getting on my nerves…sniff!

  115. Siber-H
    10:55 pm on May 5th, 2012

    umm YES

    I don’t know if you saw this or not, Rio, but I think that one lady was just hoping Cargo would go ahead and run into her arms. She didn’t seem to be at all interested in catching the foul ball.

  116. Siber-H
    11:01 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Home Run! The Rockies could save this.

    11:28 pm on May 5th, 2012

    Well I see it is pouring rain at Denver and the game has been delayed. From the way it is raining it might be a loo-ong delay.
    There are thunderstorms east of us and so far no moon has come up out of the clouds. Tomorrow we have to do a little more cleaning before A Catty Librarian and Elliot arrive and find all our dust bunnies.

    Goodnight all

So I guess I will continue to talk to myself…wuffle!…I remember having to do this a long time ago when hardly anyone posted on Chet’s blog…grunt!…Yes it is true, he didn’t have many followers that first year. I remember having a count of 25 or 30 was a good day..snort!…But his blog-base has grown in the last two plus years now…sniff!…Lots of interesting characters have joined.

    Cuddyer!…During the rain delay we have been watching a special on how Cuddyer came to be with the Rockies…heh!heh!…The Twins didn’t want him anymore and the ones here at the Rockies organization said they LOVED him and wanted him and made it very easy for him and his family to be here….HEHEHEHEHEHEH!

    Rio: I snorted and chuckled—snorckled—when I read your post wondering about my whereabouts! AJ surprised me by arriving home yesterday evening, way ahead of schedule—I didn’t expect him until two or three this morning. A meeting that was scheduled for last night at a stop along the way home was cancelled. It was a good surprise, except he is sick. I knew he was feeling awful when he took some cold medicine—he rarely takes more than aspirin for anything. He rested for much of the day which he needed and then we went into town to run errands. I started not feeling tip top on our way home so he said he would do dog chores tonight. He’s out in the kennel right now. We are going to put on our dog fur covered fleece, sip some cider and watch a video.

    More to Rio: Your friend’s project is beautiful. The color, the writing—superb!
