Media Madness

Kind of a strange situation yesterday. The blog talk radio calls and thinks he’s talking to me. Doesn’t everyone know I can’t talk? It’s in the very first post, Inauguration Day, which got repeated a few posts down at Feb. 2. Just because I can’t talk doesn’t mean I can’t narrate. But forget that part. The point is Spence had to think quick – maybe not quick enough – and he came up with the idea of pretending to be me. He hopes it worked! I wasn’t even here. We’re working on the son of Colonel Bob Case, if it is a case. But no time to go into that now.

Note from Admin: It’s too soon to say there will definitely be a Dog On It movie. All we can say for sure is that it’s in development at Universal, with Mandalay producing and Jeff Lowell writing.

Note from Spence: There’s that pessimism of yours again.

    I hope this photo I tried to put up last night works this time. This is what I had to do most of the day yesterday. This modeling job is SO boring! I wish I had Maggie's job working in the barn and chasing chickens, oh what a life!

    Hi Jennifer – Do you work or volunteer at your hospital? My other part-tiime job besides modeling is working at a hospital too! I'm a therapy dog and visit lots of patients. That job is much better 'cause I get lots of attention and treats. The smells aren't too bad either (although a barn is better). I can't wait, I'm supposed to got back tomorrow! Tailwags to Everyone…Cos

    Whew, glad to hear that wasn't Chet's voice yesterday. It was not a tough enough voice for the musings of our great Chet. But we kind of figured out it was Spence doing the talking, but good of him to try to fake out the interviewer! We are so excited that the new book will be out this year, but are kind of leary of a movie. Can they actually cast somebody to be a true "Chet" or a true "Bernie"?

    If they HAVE to make a movie, I sure hope the go Indie with the casting. I don't think I could take it if they tried to get Keanu Reeves or Harrison Ford to play Bernie. Ugh. _Maaaaaybe_ Humphry Bogart, if he were still alive… Maybe.

    We had to miss the blogtalk yesterday but will try to catch it from the link you guys left – thanks! Good luck with the case Chet, if it is a case.

    Hmmmm…..These movie things tend to take a life of their own, watch out!

    Stover!…what I meant to write is “do you remember if Colonel Bob’s last name is ‘Case’?”…snort!

    Woof!… I wonder if I called Spence at home would he pretend to be Chet when he picked up the phone???…Snort!

    Gruff!… If his friends call him at home, does he pretend to be Chet until he remembers(!!) that Chet can’t talk???

    Who is “Jeff Lowell”? Do we trust that this “Jeff Lowell” can capture the musings of our Chet? Does this “Jeff Lowell” live with any members of the tribe – the nation within the nation?

    One sure hopes that Spence (or Pete or Admin or someone who loves Chet as we do) makes damn sure “Hollywood Chet” narrates like Bernie’s (and our) Chet!

    oh, and Megan read book 2 again, said that there is still no mention of a Colonel Bob son, just 2 twin daughters, but she still said that she cannot wait for book 3!!!

    Megan!…I bet if you read that book 5 times…snort!…there still wouldn't be a Colonel Bob's son.

    On a completely unrelated topic, I’m very surprised at how few Westies and Scotties there are on this blog. Those terrier types have real ‘tude!

    Mmmmpf!… I can’t help thinking that Spence’s inability to think quickly was a big blunder yesterday!…snort!… now there are all kinds of folks who are under the impression that Chet is a Talking Dog…what a goof-up!…grunt!

    Stover!…do you remember – is Colonel Bob’s last name is “Case”?…. Snort!…maybe Chet is on the case for another Colonel Bob who has a son!…that would explain that other goof-up!…Grunt!

    Rio, Thanks for the heads-up on Alice. I will sleep with one eye open, if I can remember. Did I mention those Javelins? Do you think they really smell like bacon? Don't get me started on bacon…. and hot dogs. Do you know my Mom bought Hebrew National, just cause Chet said they were his favorite? And you know what? She said they were really great. Me, I'm not that particular. Mom just yells "hot dog" to get me to come inside, then I get a treat. She's the best, next to Chet and Bernie, of course. Maggie

    Hey guys! Lexi here, trying to follow that link, missed it yesterday. I had to take a bath, and megan said that I looked like a wet rat. How rude!

    Oh, and the movie buisness is so confusing, you don’t know if it is a movie or not. Just one simple word people….. YES! Not NO though, if be sad.

    Rio, glad you're feeling better man, you definitely don't want to be less than 100% to face Alice. Thanks Gus, Boo Bear & Maggie, I am comfy in my "studio" bed – just gets boring is all!

    I'd love to get a good trail on one of those javelinas….

    PFC Wookie – is he on another mission or maybe….having that playdate with Lucy?

    Hey Chet, Have you and Bernie ever had a flat tire? Not fun. No spare because ours was being replaced because it was too old. I think the Newfs have been chewing on it. Needless to day, it was the new tire that got a flat. In the snow on a curvey country road. You know how you like to speed and air and smells? Well, when you have a flat tire you get to recon a lot while waiting for the tow truck.

    The tow truck was awesome. You would have liked the tow truck. Had treats in it.

    Hey Jenifer Dawson,

    Don't go blowing my cover now. I will have to send Alice Johnson up north to 'talk' to you. I am glad to know you are having a good time with Chet and Bernie. Are Lonnie and Gordon reading a chapter a day? I bet they are enjoying Dog On It.

    In Thereby Hangs a Tail Chet almost gets a ride to Alaska. I bet he would have to go right through Fort Nelson and you could wave to him. But I better not say any more.

    I post all the time, but all they want to hear about is Alice Johnson. That cat sneaks in everywhere! Stay warm and get some sunlight now.

    Here is one of the disguises Alice Johnson uses in her 'undercover' work.


    Abbie the Kitty.

    Molly!…And all other Guys!…I’m also a bit worried about PFC Wookie…I’m sure he would have said something by now if he could have…Snort!…there are lots of power outages, it may be affecting his home again…. groan!!…I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say,…snort!…we all hope he has enough food and water…but he is a trained spy now, I know he will find a way to get back here…wheeze!

    Hey Rio,

    Hope you are feeling better there. Staff had a cold about a month ago and was she a mess. Kleenex all over. I don't know why they do that. Maybe if they had a little fur they could take care of it in a decent way.

    Her little sister posted yesterday and she didn't see it till today. So many people here all of a sudden. I think it was 'cause Chet and Spence were on the radio.

    I listened to both interviews today. Thanks for the links you tech savvy people.

    Spence said he hasn't a clue what Chet is up to until it happens. And he says he has lots of fun writing about Chet and Bernie. I think it shows.

    Cosmo ~ great picture buddy. Sorry you don't have much snow. If I could send you some I would. We have plenty!

    GUYS!… on Alert!…A-Kat has cleverly posted Alice Johnson’s new fake ID, and at the same time distancing herself from the Perp in question.

    Alice is on her way Up North…Probably to Alaska or somewhere called Fort Nelson…we need more Intel on that…mmmm…(hope Wookie is ok. He would be perfect for this)…Damn! If I wouldn’t have gotten sick this whole thing would not have happened and I would have been able to…Snuff!…contain Alice.

    Hey Cosmos,

    I work at the hospital and volunteer as well. We would sure love it if you would visit. You are one beautiful creature. Thanks for acknowledging my first post 'cuz after I sent it I worried that only 4 leggeds were allowed. I do share the house with 3 cats but they have refused to agree to be Chet's friend. It's not really their fault – they were terrorized by one of yours' when they were just babies and since then…well, 'nuff said.

    Abbie, of course I will not blow your cover. Alice Johnson need not come up north. I knew as soon as I pressed the send button that I should've used an alias like Spense.

    Cosmo, Love your photo – You look really comfy. Thanks for all the nice things you said about my life. Does it get any better than this? I don’t think so. But maybe it would be fun to meet one of those javelin pigs or a fuzzybutt that you guys talk about. I think we just have regular pigs here in Illinois, and Mom said we don’t have the right kind of trees for fuzzybutts. Kind of lost me on that one. Quick hey to Rio, too, hope you’re feeling better….Maggie

    Alice Johnson….gurgle!… I have to be tip-top to face that one…Grunt!… she’s the Devil Maggie, stay away from her.

    Carrie!… I finally got my head out of my ass and clicked on the link you so kindly provided.

    I – Rio! Finally got to listen to an interview from Spence in his own voice!

    He is: Young and Full of Life! Optimistic and has a natural sense of “things”. He has fun writing about Chet and Bernie! Who wouldn’t!!!?.. Spence is a very nice guy, one I will continue to torment as often as I can. His life is way too perfect!! ….

    He mentioned this blog as being a “nice community” (I think)… and for some reason that really resounded with me…

    Rio you sweet thing you,

    I don't know how you can suspect little 'ol me! Why I am the picture of innocence! I think we should get together for a weenzy little chat. I'm sure I can convince you of my perfect innocence in any such thing as your sweet imagination can think of.

    The Olympics start tomorrow. We could have a lovely little conversation with some little rawhide chews and some nice fresh water. I am sure by the end of the evening we would be in I mean would understand each other in many wonderful ways.

    And here is a picture of that bad Alice Johnson. She is safe behind bars and I am sure could never ever escape even though she knows a million disguises.

    Come up and see me sometime big boy. We could make sweet music together. Don't be afraid my dear one. Throw off the shackles of tradition and walk on the wild side.

    Your..ahem..pal, A-Kat

    We haven’t heard from SA Wookie. Yesterday he said it was still snowing, and my Mom says he may be snowed in. I know Siberian Husky was jealous about that snow a couple of days ago, but maybe even he might think that there is such a thing as too much snow.

    To Spence, Admin., Bernie, and Chet…

    A very handsome dog would have to be cast as our beloved 100 pounder, but I think a great voice for Chet would be the gentleman who does the dog voice-overs for Pedigree Dog Food. I love John Cusack as Bernie…I'm just saying….
