“Here’s a little something,” says Admin. “Although I’m not sure a certain key fact is in there.”

“And here’s a nice review from Jen’s Book Thoughts.”

Welcome Lucky, Phoebe, Hey Chet Dude, Fan Dude, Abby. Trixie Parks – please retry.

    I’ve never thought of a shower as amniotic. Interesting. And there’s going to be a cat in the next Chet and Bernie mystery!? Heh!

    Good morning all. Getting ready for school.

    Brando. Good name for an actor’s Kat.

    Bella, we have a cool little machine that hooks up to the van so we can stand in the cold or rain (why is that) to pump up tires that have decided to go soft.

    Soon we will have a Element with better tires. The van is being donated.

    So . . . together in the same room and no fight broke out! But I did notice that Peter shut Spencer down at the end.

    Here is Spencer’s treat (The second review said to give him one).

    Melanie, what the heck is that?

    I know – milk pod seeds! Do we get a prize?

    Loved the conversation between Spence and Peter.

    I think Ol’ Spence is pandering to the Kats on the blog. Give me a break – the next book needs more of Princess.

    10:06 am on October 12th, 2011

    Wölfie: Barb & MagPie are correct!

    Hmmm . . . a prize . . . MagPie gets a virtual rat to chase and Barb gets a virtual cup of warm tea and scones spread with clotted cream!

    Good Morning!
    Kats? in the new book?
    This should be interesting.

    Whoa…Thanks to Staff reposting, we just read the synopsis of Season Four Breaking Bad. Only one more season left? and when? Rio, you were quite right when you said the characters couldn’t go on this way much longer. Something Evil This Way Comes…..

  9. Barb & Maggie
    11:02 am on October 12th, 2011

    Thank you Melanie, although we should have said milk weed pod, to be totally correct. That is what Monarch caterpillars feed on. Did you take the photo?

    Scones, yum! When Barb was in N.C. she had some warm scones that had goat cheese and apricot in them. Sounds bad, but they were delish!

    Rat, vitrual or otherwise sounds great to me!

    Enjoyed the interview with PA/SQ.
    I have two names just like PA/SQ.

    I have a feeling Chet isn’t going to like this kat that appears in the new book.

    Bear, Did Nana ever watch Song Catcher? Did she like it?

  12. Snowhook Bella
    11:31 am on October 12th, 2011

    Good morning! I wonder who would win if Spence and Peter met on the tennis court? It was great to hear the writing process (even if it was done so after a bit of prodding).

    T&G: I told AJ that his ears are just fine and no need to change them. He had a look of relief.

    Special Request Alert: Bev, my mother—one of the best, if not the best in the world is having her gall bladder removed today. I can’t be with her as I would like, but I’ve been praying and thinking of her. Could you send some of your positive Plunderer thoughts her way—it never hurts to have the power of the Plunderers behind you.

    Rebecca, lots of kitty thoughts and purrs headed to your Mom. It’s tough to live far away at times like this. Keep us posted.

    Sam, we’re afraid that Princess is so yesterday….those 15 minutes of fame are probably long gone unless the movie idea picks up speed.

    Enjoyed both the reviews/talks from the links this morning. Already moving ahead with the 5th Chet & Bernie book. Can’t wait!

    Saw the pictures Rebecca posted yesterday for Rio and his friend. We are SO JEALOUS!!! Come on lottery numbers!!

    Mom took the day off to take one of the three stray kittens that got left at our place to get “altered”. Now she’s off to furniture look/buy.

    Wonderful artwork from OTAS’F!! Yep, she should have won!!

    12:15 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Sam: I see that Rio’s famous friend, Mama Biscuit, has taken one of Princess’s tricks, that of daintily showing a piece of her tongue, and is using it non-stop. Do you think that Mama Biscuit would have a chance of being Princess in the movie? You know how Hollywood screws things up sometimes.
    Rio: Did you see Bella, a new friend of Chet’s and a mighty pretty pug. Chet has quite a few flatheader Friends.
    Snowhook Bella: Our thoughts and prayers going out to Bev.
    Welcome to all those good-looking new Friends of Chet.

    Strange!….That was a very strange article with Spencer and Admin talking to each other…grunt!… Admin was being way too nice and communicative…..heh!…It didn’t seem natural at all…sniff!

    Mama!….Mama Biscuit would be wonderful in a Chet and Bernie movie!….snort!….She just shines and she’s always dressed in the latest fashions….wheeze!… When I read her blog she makes me laugh, and I never laugh …heh!…I forgot to post her link last night. Too busy watching the Tigers pull some Whoop-Ass on the Rangers!…snort!snort! ….So here it is. Not too hard to remember…sniff!

    Hello all. Sounds like we missed a lot yesterday/last evening? We’ll have to go review.

    Interesting conversation between PA and SQ. Makes us wonder if there is similar conversation between S-H and Caleb?

    Sam a.k.a. Princess, don’t worry. Your fame will never leave you!

    It may not top Mama Biscuit or her tongue in cuteness, but here is a photo of the Little Women litter, Charlie’s litter.

  21. OleyHowlers
    1:22 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Adorable pics of the Little Women pups, Rebecca.

    We also love Momma Biscuit’s blog. What a terribly sad beginning to her life she had. Glad she is a celebrity now.

    Siber, we agree that breed rescues do not get purebred puppies. There was a shelter in New York State that had a 4-month old that Mom wanted, but of course so did everyone else. She was gone lickety-split.

    OTAS-f painting of Mine is gorgeous. What talent. That is one terrifying kat (in a good way).

    Natasha, Dima is a meek and mild type guy. He is longing for a sensitive woman to be his girl. We are thinking the only member of our pack that could have met your high demands was our big brother Boris, who is across the Bridge.

  22. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:29 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Match!…Boris and Natasha!…heh!snort!heh!

    1:53 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Rebecca: Prayers winging their way to your mom today.

    O.Howlers & Rio: Boris Badanov! Yes, goes perfectly with Natasha doesn’t it.

    MollyPop: Check your SDD.

  27. Siber-H
    1:57 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Rebecca, Thoughts and prayers going out for your mom. My mom, who speaks from experience, says that Bev will feel much better when the gall bladder is gone. My dad’s sister had hers out when she was only 21. She says the same thing…good riddance.

    We love Boris’s name.

    Rio, you said the magic word, baseball, yesterday when you mentioned what book you are reading. I read some of the customer reviews of it on Amazon and ordered it.

  28. OleyHowlers
    1:59 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Oh Rebecca! Forgot to tell you, prayers for your mom from all the 2-leggeds and 4-leggeds here.

    2:10 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Rebecca, We are sending good thoughts about your Mom.

    Both Alice and Abbie are excited about a kat in the C&B#5, they want to meet Brando. A kat with attitude. I wonder what the Herbs think of this?

    Boris? and Natasha? Have I heard that pairing somewhere before? Seems like I have….snicker.

    Bev!…Is Bev the Popcorn Lady?…snort!…I sure hope she feels a lot better once this surgery is over, The sooner she gets outta there the better!…wheeze!…Hospitals make me shuddder…brrrr!

    SiberH!…Whatever you do when you get that book, Do Not Read The Ending before you are done….snort!….My friend was nervous waiting for her doctors appt this morning and she did the Unthinkable….grunt!….She read the ending paragraph…sniff! ….What is the Matter with her? …wheeze! ….It is a terrific ending, but please DO NOT READ IT till you are actually there…heh!

    Belle – warm thoughts to all for comfort and healing.

    Rio – Mama Biscuit’s blog is a hoot and a half. And bless her heart, she’s a survivor.

    Kool, a Kat in C&B#5.

  37. Siber-H
    3:25 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Ok Rio, thanks. I have never read the ending of a book before I am finished with it. It must be a good book if your friend wanted to know the ending ahead of time.

  38. BearSpiritDog
    3:28 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Barb&Maggie: No, haven’t watched Song Catcher yet. Somehow it got knocked out of its first place position. Now back at the top we should have it in a couple of days.
    Have you heard? Netflix has decided to keep the one website for Streaming and DVDs. Good riddance to Quikster. What a sneaky sounding name.
    Still have lots of catching up to do…..

    Prayers to Bev. Tell her that she won’t miss those nasty gb attacks one little bit!

  40. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:07 pm on October 12th, 2011

    SiberH!…No, that isn’t why she read the last paragraph….snort!…She says she was thumbing to the back just to see how many chapters there were and a Certain Word caught her attention so she stopped and read the whole paragraph and got all choked up too!…heh!snort! ….So don’t be nosy like her…sniff!

  41. Barb & Maggie
    4:11 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Bear, You will love the music, and the scenery, and the costuming, and the story, and the acting….well I guess the whole enchalada!

    Barb saw Giada (sp?) on the Today show, and her recipe for sauce was voted the #1 favorite. She sauted onion,carrot and celery till soft and then added canned tomatoes – diced, crushed or
    sauce, then added some fresh chopped basil at the end. That is it – she used that for her base sauce for eveything Italian. No garlic, no oregeno! Froze it in ice cube trays and popped them out for easy meals.
    Long story short – we are going out to pick some basil leaves today, before cold weather comes. Will try it tonight and will let you know.

    We are sending good healing thoughts Bev’s way too. Hope all went well.

  42. Tupper and Gilly
    4:33 pm on October 12th, 2011

    “Gilly! Get over here and leave Mama alone – she’s worrying herself half to death already”

    “What’s she worried about NOW?? The “big” show is over.”

    “Seems she is planning to donate something to the Mushers’ Mercantile, and she can’t decide what. She is thinking of Birch Bark Woman, but doesn’t know if the $300 price tag is too high to sell there. And she doesn’t want anyone to feel funny about buying. So she was thinking of maybe some of her smaller feathers. But then again, she could create something unique just for Snowhook. She has just put herself into knots trying to figure this one out. She wants to do what is best for raising money for Bella and AJ and Whitey-Lance and Company”

    “Why doesn’t she just ask the Plunderers? They are always right”

    “YOU try to tell her that – she never pays attention when I tell her things. She acts like she doesn’t understand what I am saying.”

    “Aw, lets go mess with the Kats – they are goofy with the catnip Mama got for them at the Farmers’ Market.”

    “Ok – but first, we need to send some healing thoughts to MaBella. Come on Gilly – PAWS crossed, not EYES!”

  43. B.Stover
    4:50 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Rebecca: I hope your mother’s surgery went well.

    T&G: I think anything you put up on Musher’s Mercantile will sell.

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:58 pm on October 12th, 2011

    300!…Dollars!…snort!…Stover, can I borrow some money?….sniff!

  45. Barb & Maggie
    5:00 pm on October 12th, 2011

    We think some small bear fetishes–how much would little ones cost? Could you do some little bitty, like walnut shell size or maybe slightly bigger?

  46. Barb & Maggie
    5:06 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Or here is another thought, Barb’s grands love dream catchers. Barb received some in the mail – just little commercially made ones – from a Native American charity donation she did. The kids have them hanging in their rooms and love them.

    We think several small things, rather than one grandious, expensive one, would attract more people, plus it would give more of us chances to have some of your works.

  47. Mollypop
    5:07 pm on October 12th, 2011

    This afternoon we had two more cars crash into store fronts – Walgreens and a bank. What is this all about? This is becoming a dangerous place to live.

  48. Barb & Maggie
    5:11 pm on October 12th, 2011

    We picked our basil in the rain, and have now chopped the onion, celery and carrots, so we are all ready to do this sauce!

    Rio, is your friend venturing into the kitchen yet, or is she holding her ground? You would think her mother would love to have someone else take over the cooking occasionally!

  49. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:24 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Molly!….It sounds to me like your town needs Ghost Busters!….snort!

  50. Tupper and Gilly
    5:25 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Rio – Mama says you can come cook here anytime, and she will not hover, or nag, or suggest. She would love to have someone else cook now and then (Dad is pretty hopeless once you get past PB&J)

    Barb – you would be most welcome to come and cook too – mmmmm – we can smell that fresh basil all the way over here.

    MollyPop – aren’t you glad you don’t live in a storefront! Keep your eyes open and your running booties on!

  51. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:27 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Cooking!…Last night her mother made Tuna Cassarole….gah!… Neither one of us will eat that…sniff!…So later my friend made some scrambled eggs and toast. That’s all she has cooked since the Meatloaf Stand-off…heh!

  52. Siber-H
    5:29 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Mollypop, Tell your mom not to stand in front of any store fronts…just dash in and out their doors as quick as she can. Better still, maybe she could order everything she needs online.

    Royal Mum – We want/need a dream catcher.

  55. Melanie
    5:44 pm on October 12th, 2011

    MamaBev, I thought for sure that The Pack had written sending you good slobbery thoughts. Maybe I didn’t push the submit button. Anyhoo, hope everything goes well and how needs that pesky old gall bladder anyway?

    MollyPop, maybe it’s the water?

    We were winterizing the pool. We did everything correctly and then started on the cover. They did not send directions. . . .

  56. Barb & Maggie
    5:48 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Molly, isn’t that about 9 crashes in the last month? That is insane!

    Barb is reading a new David Baldacci book, One Summer. Usually he writes mystery or political thrillers, but if you didn’t know better, you would swear you were reading Nicholas Sparks! Has anyone else read it?

  57. dawson
    6:08 pm on October 12th, 2011

    T&G: I love feathers! And I might be able to afford them.
    I also love Birch Bark woman. She would look real good surrounded by my little birch bark baskets.
    I want a beaded lizard.

  58. Mollypop
    6:24 pm on October 12th, 2011

    MagPie – It’s 14 crashes in less than a month.

  59. B.Stover
    6:36 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Rio: What do you want to buy?

    I want to buy one of the Kachina (not spelled correctly) masks.

    Mollypop: What do the people who crash into the store fronts say?

  60. Tupper and Gilly
    6:53 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Bee – the drivers in MollyPop’s town say:

    “Isn’t this the drive up window?”

    “Who put this dam storefront in the middle of the road?”

    “Honey – did you by chance take MY glasses this morning instead of yours?”

    “Ummmm..Hello, Geico?”

  61. OleyHowlers
    6:56 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Mollypop, that is very strange phenomenom indeed. You really have us curious as to the reason this is suddenly happening so frequently!

    T&G, ask your mama how much she asks for the copper horse? We’d love to give that to Mom for Christmas, but probably wouldn’t be able to do enough chores to afford it.

  62. Mollypop
    6:58 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Ha ha Tupp ‘n Gill – They all say they were stepping on the brake, except the young woman who had a lot of pills in her car. Witnesses say she never even slowed down.

  63. Melanie
    6:59 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Okay, after swearing up a storm trying to put the pool cover on before the 2 inches of rain we’re going to get, my body quit so I text Mechanical Engineer Nephew writing “911”. He just left after making sure the cover would stay on for the next two days AND told me I was doing it correctly. The only problem? Instead of 210 feet of wire, they only sent 21 feet of wire. Those pesky decimal points will get you every time! Snigglefritz and Carpola!

    Getting the right amount of wire and then he’ll do it for us this weekend. When he comes to help us, he always says, “I’m here to help” and stands just like superman!

    Well, got to catch up with Inspector Lewis. BBL

  64. BearSpiritDog
    7:01 pm on October 12th, 2011

    MollyPoP: Oh, no! I just hope no cars crash into your little Post Office! The package is on the way. This is getting spooky and it’s not even Halloween. Rio may not be joking about calling in Ghostbusters. There is definitely something paranormal going on there.

    Tupper&Gilly: Small bear fetishes and dream catchers, as Barb & Maggie suggest, would be big sellers on the MCMS we think. It couldn’t hurt to display some of the larger pieces also.

  65. B.Stover
    7:08 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Melanie: I like your nephew!

    T&G: I’m cracking up.

    Greetings All!

    Very busy at the new job, which is good. Makes the day go faster, and my grey matter is heating up!
    Unfortunately, my new cubicle is not private like my old one was, so I can’t sneak in a peak to the blog at work. THEN, the Prof is worried than I am too obsessed with the blog…SNORT!

    Rebecca: Prayers and healing thoughts coming at your mom from Westchester.

    Belle: I will definitely need you to give me the “look” so that I can remember to take my keys out of the lock. I will take you to work every day…you’ll be plenty busy though, tons of perps there!

    7:40 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Thank you for all your well wishes for my Bev. Mabella—I love it! I received a text from Coach; she is in recovery and the doctor said it went well.

    Rose: I, um, have a confession to make. I worked from home yesterday, but still had to go to the feed store so Rio Junior and others don’t go hungry. I was in a hurry to get chores done when I arrived home. Night had long since fallen as were the temps. I , well, I got distracted and I may have left the keys in the lock. I found them this morning still in the door when I left for work.

    T&G: You make me laugh, but your mama shouldn’t stress. I’m still twirling at the thought of a Golinka creation making its way to the MMCS.

    I recieved an exciting email today, at least I think it’s exciting. It was from the casting director. She said that AJ and the Best Damn Handling Wife have been chosen to show in the demo/sizzle reel for the dogumentary. I have no idea what a demo reel is, but she wouldn’t have started the email with congratulations if it were bad. Would she?

  73. Barb & Maggie
    7:49 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Yea the guppy hole is gone!

    Rebecca, that is really amazing that all 8 of those puppies were females. Were there no boys in the litter?

    Molly, you definitely need those cement curb thingies in your town. 14 accidents!

    Funny story – Barb was just talking to Lily who is potting a couple of her garden plants to bring indoors. Barb was trying to figure out a good west or south window at their house, so she asked Lil, “Where does the sun set?”. Lily in total seriousness says, “I am pretty sure it is in the west”. After Barb stopped laughing she rephrased her question.

    Hey, y’all! Mom just got home from handbell practice, so I just have time for a quick howdy before I have to go supervise supper. Tonight’s spaghetti — mmmmmmm, French bread crusts! Yummy!!!

    Rebecca: The dreaded GB! Mom sympathizes. Glad all went well with the surgery. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bev for a speedy recovery — especially since that’s Grandma’s middle name!!!

    Hip Hip Hurrah for Snowhook Kennels! YEA! Wonderful!

    Note sure what they mean by a demo reel. I know actors have demo reels. Hmmm Pondering!

    Rose & Bella: Leaving keys in the lock. Someone here has done the same thing. Such things usually occur when hands are full and one is rushing into the house. One time Nana tossed her keys on the couch and they fell down between the cushions. Needless to say it was quite some time before they were found again.

    Howlers: That is great news about Shiek. He has been in our thoughts lately.

    SnowBella: We can’t wait to hear more about the Dogumentary! Also, glad to hear that Bev is out of surgery and all is well.

    Barb: We read David Baldacci in the past, but hadn’t heard of the current book you are speaking of. It is interesting when a writer goes off in a different direction. Sometimes it turns out quite well.

    Rose, so good to hear how much you are enjoying your new job. Makes Mom want to get a new job too.

    Keys have been left in the door overnight at our house many times.

    Thank you to everyone who wished Shiek well, Doc Meashka says the wound is healing up well and soon we won’t even know where it was.

    We had more to say, but we are too sleepy to remember what that was now. Off to bed for us (right after we look at T&G’s mum’s email on dishlickers). Sweet Dreams to all.

    Mollypop…stay away from storefronts!

    I asked the casting director to explain a demo/sizzle reel. She was nice enough to respond and if she was laughing at my ignorance, she kept it to herself. It is a video that will be shown to networks about the idea of doing the dogumentary. She said there is still a long ways to go before prodcution, but this is a big step. Act—that is one talent lost on AJ and I.

    Barb: The Little Women has two males in it. I’m in charge of naming and usually do so by themes. I was at a loss. One evening I was looking over the pups as they slept and wondered out loud, “What am I going to do with all these little women?”. Our Outlaw litter is all males. Belle Starr wass born a week before the Outlaws yet raised with them. I figured you can’t have a band of outlaws without a Belle Starr.

    Rebecca: Just a word of caution. When Mom was in college, her roommate came home from class one day traumatized because she had just seen a movie of a woman giving birth. She threw herself down on her bed and was telling Mom and their other roommate about how horrible it was. Later, she couldn’t find her keys. All three of the roommates left the next day on a trip, and came back a few days later to find their room had been burglarized while they were gone! The theory was that the roommate left her keys in the door, and someone walking down the hall had grabbed them and took advantage of everyone being gone that weekend to break in. The burglar took money, jewelry and stamps! So DON’T LEAVE YOUR KEYS IN THE DOOR!!!

    Hey, Rio! Mom found a book today that she might use for her storytime next week. It’s called Chick ‘n’ Pug. It’s about a chick who reads a book about the adventures of Wonder Pug. Then he finds a pug and sets out to have adventures with him. Only all the pug wants to do is sleep! Sounds true to life, huh?

    We like tuna salad sandwiches, and we LOVE tuna steak, especially on the grill.
    But tuna cassarole is just wrong. We knew someone who always made it for “company dinner” and it was covered with crushed potato chips….and grease…..bleccccchhhhh! And had chopped green olives in it….double blecccchhhh.

    Hey guess what – we just got an email from the CL – we are closed tomorrow since she HAS TO GET THE FANS MOVED AWAY FROM THE LIGHTS – by order of the building inspector.
    As Alice would say…heh heh.

    Kirby!… How’s the football season going?….snort!… I think the Denver Broncos are finally going to play Teebo instead of those other two guys we got, one by the name of Quinn from Notre Dame….grunt!…That’s all I know right now because I have to finish out the baseball season before I can fully concentrate on the football stuff…wuffle!

    Well, Rio, last week’s game wasn’t so hot. In fact, our team was pretty darn cold! Mom and Dad have gone twice now to see the games at a party with the Iowa Club — and they’ve lost both games. They’re afraid the club won’t let them come back again! The Hawkeyes are 3-2 now. Mom and Dad really want to go see their team play in a bowl game, so they have to win a bunch more games before that can happen. The next game isn’t on our TV, so if Mom and Dad want to see it they have to go back to the Iowa Club, because they meet in a sports restaurant that gets all the channels.

    Oh, and my boy’s team is a little stirred up, too. They just kicked their quarterback off the team — again — but this time for good. And their coach started ranting and raving about one of the sportswriters from the local newspaper. My girl — who goes to the rival college — is enjoying all of this a lot!!!

  120. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:58 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Kirby!….My friend almost bought a Hawkeye tee-shirt when we were in Iowa, but every body was rushing her and she couldn’t find one she liked…grunt!…The Walmart in that small town didn’t carry much variety…sniff!

  121. Tupper and Gilly
    11:01 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Gone! Our answer is off in cyberspace.

    Rio – for the last couple of weeks, we have had to either turn the fans off or the lights off if there was any problem with a member. It put a whole new twist on “Crazy Lady Land”

    She wouldn’t have even fixed it if the electrician hadn’t turned her in to the building inspector. Sheesh.

    Ok, going to bed now. G’night everyone.

    and congratulations and celebrations Macy!

  122. Kirby T. Penworthy
    11:04 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Well, Rio, if your friend was wearing a Hawkeye t-shirt, maybe we’d be winning. My special collar doesn’t seem to be doing much good this year!

    oh Brother!… Goodnight all!…snort!…I’m off to my warm soft bed now…wheeze!….Her bedroom is so cold cause she has the windows open…brrrr!… Hopefully she will remember to put that cover over my bed again like she did last night….wuffle!…I was a lot warmer and I’m sure I did not snore at all…snuff!

  124. Kirby T. Penworthy
    11:08 pm on October 12th, 2011

    Oh, and by the way, Mom remembered to call the animal shelter today. They said nobody has asked about That Boy, but they took the information about him in case anyone comes later. Hey, maybe if he ends up staying, we should name him Dabo. The football coach at my girl’s college is called Dabo because when he was a baby his brother called him “That Boy,” only he was a little kid and it came out “Dabo,” and the name stuck!

    KirbyT: In all seriousness, by the way your story started it was a cautionary tale about watching birthing videos—sound advice for anyone, but then I realized the moral of the story—lock the doors, and for heavensakes take the key out of the lock.

    Mabelle is home from the hospital and resting. She is a wisp of a woman. AJ picked her up one time and commented that he’s lifted bags of dog food heavier than her. The docs wouldn’t let her go home until her heart rate rose to a minimal level—better safe than sorry.

    Rangers!! nuff said. Thanks SiberH for rooting with us.

    Mom needs some rest from all this baseball madness, so win tomorrow boys! *ranger boys, not tigers*

    Gall bladders are highly over-rated. Mom didn’t even know hers needed to come out until another test discovered it. Paws and fingers crossed for our Angie who is having a biopsy on her lady bits on Friday.

    nite-nite, y’all

  130. Kirby T. Penworthy

    Rebecca: I’m not saying that yet. Mom is thinking about taking his photo around to the v-e-t offices on Friday, since that’s her day off this week. She honestly won’t mind too much if they end up adopting That Boy, but the fact that he has a collar on makes her think that there might be someone out there who’s looking for him.

  131. Snowhook Bella
    12:34 am on October 13th, 2011

    KirbyT: Understood about the collar. Howard, my stray had a collar, but no one claimed him. In his case, I don’t think his previous kennel did right by him. In the mean time, take care of this guy—friends are where you find them.
