    We were not allowed on the iPaw last night because Mom and Pop decided to go out to a coffee house to hear a whole lot of musicians jam in something called “Front Porch Picking”. So we did not catch up on the awful news of last night until just now. Our hearts are so very sad. This winter has been so hard on so many of our dearest friends. We love you Melanie and Zoe. Please feel our love in your hearts.

    OMD, what happened last night that we missed? Must go back right away and read the posts.

    The story from Staff had a happy ending. Poor little Boo, left alone in that truck.

    We just read about Patsy. Our hearts are heavy for Melanie and Zoe. With Melanie’s loving care she gave Patsy a wonderful last year. Our thoughts are with you and The Pack.

    My thoughts are with Melanie and Zoe. Patsy lived a long and happy life. The picture that Rio posted is perfect.

    Good morning all.

    Melanie and Zoe, Patsy is out of pain and with the Raven.

    Good morning all. The picture Rio posted was indeed perfect. That is exactly how we will remember Melanie’s puppy.

    Melanie may or may not be on the blog today. The sadness that she has borne this year…well, it’s just too much. We know she will appreciate your prayers and long distance hugs. She will join us when she feels she can.

    Thank you Rio for the perfect picture last night. Melanie, take all the time you need. We will send one of those long distance hugs.

    Off to p.t.

    Melanie. We just saw the news and know how heartbroken you must be. But Patsy could not have had a more wonderful, loving life than the one that you gave her here in earth (and that she gave you in return), and she is without pain now and at peace. And even though her physical presence is gone, I know that her spirit will be with you always.
    Rio, thank you for the picture, as others have said, just the way we will remember her.
    Love, tears and hugs from Chevy Chase.

    Hey Rio, He’s not heavy; he’s our brother. 🙂

    Mom just called our attention to this article about dogs who steal stuff. Check it out. What don’t these folks get? Sometimes it is just plain old fun to take something and make her go looking for it. 🙂

    Love, prayers, and hugs for Melanie, Zoe, and The Pack. We know how much you will miss Patsy. sob, sob, sob We will all miss her, but the ones at the Bridge will be happy to see her. Thank you Creator for giving Melanie and Patsy all that extra time together.
    That is a beautiful photo from last night, Rio.

    Rio: Your perfect picture is a beautiful tribute to the one and only Patsy Ketchum, Special Agent Extraordinaire.
    Melanie, We are so very sorry to hear that the one who has been your constant companion and best friend has gone over the Bridge.
    And, although we know there is a joyous reunion going on over there, here there is only tears and sadness.
    Sending Love & Hugs to everyone at the River Bears.

    Melanie!… She took that photo last year right after she found out that Patsy had bone cancer…sniff!…Patsy and Melanie had a special day out all to themselves…wuffle!

    Purrs, hugs, and love to Melanie and Zoe. Mom just caught up on last nights news. We feel so bad for the pack. What a tough year they have faced. We are so glad that Melanie had this special last year with her Patsy.

    Maybe the Raven needed 1/2 the pack with him to be at peace.

    2:05 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Melanie wants to thank all of you for your support. She says she can feel the long distant hugs. And she will be back soon.

    We think the next pet we give our heart to will be a tortoise. Or a parrot. Or maybe a pet rock. sniff…

    In the meantime, Tupper and Gilly are not speaking to me, nor are they planning to post on this here blog for a while. Seems that someone shaved their pantaloons off whilst they were being distracted with duck jerky. They are now backing away from everyone, and hiding in embarrassment under tables, chairs or whatever furniture is nearby. They just don’t much care for the “rites of spring”. But since I stepped on one of the “hazards” of too-long rump fuzz first thing this morning as I swung my feet out of bed, we decided that today was the day.
    (It was even worse than stepping barefoot on a Kat hairball. Not much, but it was worse)

    T&G: What humiliation!

    Bernie probably knows that today is International Water Day.

  22. OleyHowlers
    2:25 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    T&G, STRIKE! We are right behind you. sort of.

  23. Tupper's Mama
    2:42 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Dawson – you think THEY were humiliated???

    And Howlers – you are no help whatsoever! Its very tough for Corgis to strike. No one notices the picket signs way down there. But Gilly demanded to go for a car ride with her Daddy, and Tupper is demanding more duck jerky.

  24. Siber-H
    2:55 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Today is International Water Day? GAH

  25. Basil and Sage
    3:25 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Yes Siber. All dogs should go swimming or gave a bath to celebrate.

    “Say, Harry, didn’t Tom say today is the 3rd day of spring?”
    “Yes he did, Dick, but it sure doesn’t look that way does it.
    Where is he anyway?” “He seems to have gone back inside.”

  27. OleyHowlers

    You’re really cracking us up, Masquers.

    OMD! We don’t check on ya’ll for 2 days and come back to all this stuff 🙁 We had vet visit & emergency surgery for our Pookey an Aussie/Chow with a broken leg so we missed everything.
    Melalnie should know the HOH will keep the pack, Zoe and her in our thoughts.
    T&G: Pookey is in your corner. Vet cut all her lovely chowness “as long as I am in the neighborhood”. We think she looks like a combination of a lion, a Chinese crested and a pot bellied pig.
    OH: Mom’s first dog was wolf/husky who was a thief! Refused to return things, but would trade for a hot dog. She stole the first 2 legged grand when he was 2 months old. Mom says now that he is a teenager that maybe she shouldn’t have traded!
    Water Day 2013! Let’s play in the hose!

  32. BearSpiritDog
    4:14 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Hounds: Hope Pookey is okay (other than the Humiliation suffered at the hands of the vet)
    She can now join the Royals in a boycott of any future “trims”.
    (whispering) Did we just say the v word and get by the Moderator?

    Mollypop’s Mom, Mom read The Woman in White a loooong time ago and loved it.

    Why am I laughing at the picture Basil and Sage posted?

  37. BearSpiritDog
    4:32 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Tupper&Gilly: We are assuming the Wrotten Kats took that last photo?

  38. BearSpiritDog

    ….without your permission.

  39. OleyHowlers
    4:34 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Poor Corgis.
    HOH! Pookey has a broken leg???? egads! Hope it can mend o.k.

  40. Basil and Sage
    4:36 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    MP’sM – we liked The Woman in White, but The Moonstone left us cold. Wilkie Collins is credited with being the originator of mystery stories. We never looked that up. Was he before Poe?
    This sounds like a problem for SuperStover!

  41. B. Stover
    4:38 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    The Woman in White is very good.

    I know that my sadness cannot begin to compare to all of the sadness on this here blog the past year, but I still need Plunderer prayers and wishes for my special request. I watched the IdidIdidIdidaron with Momma this year, and it looked like a LOT of fun. Momma tells me that I too am a husky…a Siber kind of husky, and yet I have never ever gotten to play in all of that snow that Snowhook was running thru. I did see great snow last weekend, but Mama Meash and Daddy Dima say that was hardly worth calling it snow. So what I need is a real lot of snow, and the EPAWA guys say that just may happen this very Monday! All of our friends are wishing against it, saying it is time for Spring, but this here girl needs one snow to learn how to be a for-real husky. Please please please can you all concentrate all of your minds to hoping for snow for me me me?

    Poe’s Dupin appeared in three short stories (not novels) but he and his ignorant (in the sense of unaware) narrator are considered the models for detective fiction.

    4:49 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Kat, I am a lover of snow! I am sending very, very , very strong thoughts that you have a ton of snow to play in.

  45. OleyHowlers
    4:49 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Mom just ordered The Woman in White for her Kindle. It is free!

  46. Siber-H
    4:57 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Kat, From one Husky to another, I am sending snow thoughts your way.
    My snow thoughts do not work for the area I live in but maybe they will help you.

  47. Masquers
    5:06 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Howlers: Free is how we like it!
    Friend Kat: From one snow loving “kat” to another add my SnowKat hopes and prayers to the mix. Paws crossed for you. ^..^

    She wants to wash her hands, her face, her hair, in snow.

    A few years back we had snow on Good Friday. Mom had a garage sale. People came. It was strange!

    Has anyone seen that obscene Google Chrome commercial showing a baby chewing on a laptop?

    B&S:You 2 are as mischievious as the grandkats.
    Kat: Hope you get your snow. Paws crosed.

    T & G, Your hair cuts are cute! Just will take a little getting used to. BTW, tell your mama that we did see the feel good story of the young man with Downs who has his restaurant in N.M. It is called Tim’s Place. What a remarkable young man!

    Bee, Here is another verb question. On the tv guide information they will often say ” A family are” or “A Couple are”. Shouldn’t that be singular tense? A family is or a couple is?

  56. BearSpiritDog
    6:00 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Herd of Hounds: Sounds like a Good Book. We are adding it to the ever growing library list.

  57. OleyHowlers
    6:02 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    We also saw the piece about Tim’s Place. We’d like to Go there for one of his hugs.
    For what it’s worth, we say family and couple as singular. Pack too.
    HOH, paws crossed here.

  62. B. Stover
    6:33 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Barb: Yes, it should be “is.” The use of “a” makes each singular.

    We only now got around to reading this morning’s Heartwarming Story of little Boo’s rescue.

    Very Impressive!

    Jealous!…Of what? Of the ability to read the news and post a link…grunt!…I don’t think so. Oh, or the ability to take away what could be an enjoyable post from our author? That ability I am definitely not jealous of, nor would I ever attempt it….grumble!

    Well I have done all three of Macy’s puzzles (possession) but I had to change them from 100 pieces to 48. I don’t know how someone could do a 100 piece puzzle on that little screen.

    7:57 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Carpola! We did the dogs in blankies puzzle (100 pieces, Staff). But Pop brought our pizza in midway thru. So we will have the longest time in puzzle history. Great puzzle, Min-Pin. Thanks.

  81. Basil and Sage
    7:59 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    How about Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays with Chet?
    Saturdays and Sundays with Ingrid, Robbie or Astrid?

    Tupper and Gilly: even trimmed that is some set of pantaloons you have! Lady won’t let me touch or brush her’s much less wield a pair of scissors around them. Years ago when she was put under at the vet’s for something else, they shaved off her pantaloons and she has never forgiven me.

    Sorry, had to go tend to Dad.
    Macy. Let me try to remember how to get to my puzzles…hmmmmmm

    I think…

    O’Howlers.. Geez, 100 pieces. How long did that take? I like doing 48. Seldom takes me more than 5 minutes.

    Off to Beddy bye now.
    I hope Melanie is not lonely in her bed, but I expect she is. sobsobsob….

  96. Basil and Sage
    10:49 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    CHobbit – Mama us really tricky. She has a set of whisper quiet clippers. There is no way to get skin caught or do anything that would hurt. And those stooped Corgis will do anything for duck jerky.
    Ok, so we like the stuff too. But she better leave our pantaloons alone!

    We are off to bed. Gonna read a good book, and then mark our place with a beautiful holographic bookmark.

    G’night all

  97. Macy the min-pin
    10:50 pm on March 22nd, 2013

    Thanks, Staff. I always do 100 pieces. Usually takes about 15-20 minutes.
