    Greetings All!

    Something interesting I saw on the news this morning.

    I tried Chet’s link, but couldn’t bring it up.

    Rose, Saw the driving dogs on tv. Believe they were rescue dogs, right?

    I am going to pst two pictures of the completed kitchen. Glad that job is done!

    MagPie, your kitchen is, like, wow!

  5. OleyHowlers
    9:19 am on December 11th, 2012

    Like Sam said: Wow on the new kitchen! Mom is jealous, and we just want to come for dinner.
    We had to cut/paste Chet’s link to bring it up. Mom is amazed by that dog’s ability. Us? Not so much…we can tell what color a doggie was when we cross his path, and where he was coming from too. We pity humans for their lack of the most important sense there is: smell.
    Going to look at Wose’s link now.

    I could open the link. (Of course, I prefer hearing from Chet.)

    Lovely kitchen Barb. I love the black stove and the counter tops.

    Good morning all.

    Thanks guys, I think it took about 2 months to paint those cabinets. It might have been more, but 2 is as high as I go.

    We watched First Dog last night. It was cute and a good family movie, but of course not totally pawsable. Sweet young boy in foster care finds the President’s dog in California, then takes him to DC to return him. Dolly Parton wrote to music for it. One fun bit – Jerry VanDyke has a dog food company, and the dog gets stuck inside his truck. Jerry VanDyke played one of the truck drivers. I bet he appeared for nothing to promote his product.

    Stover!…Your package has been found and is finally in your town’s post office…grunt!…That was a very close call.

  12. Rose
    10:38 am on December 11th, 2012

    B&M: WOW! Your kitchen BEAUTIFUL! You ar blurring it over to me, aren’t you? I would love to sit in one of those red chairs, and have a nice, cold mojito, and a nice rib eye steak!

  13. Rose
    10:39 am on December 11th, 2012

    B&M, I was so overwhelmed with your kitchen…yes, I believe they were rescue dogs.

    We are super-impressed by the driving doggies. Then again, we could surely do that if the rents ever gave us the keys to our Sibaru.
    We watched a totally sappy Hallmark movie last night. It was called Christmas with Holly. Did any of youse watch it? So formula and happy, but sometimes those are kinda fun.

  15. Siber-H
    10:53 am on December 11th, 2012

    Thanks for the interesting article, Spence.

    Rose, Enjoyed the videos.

    Barb, Your kitchen looks very nice. We like the dark cabinets.

    Good Morning All

    Rio is making me laugh. The mail hasn’t arrived yet. I’ll post when it does.

    11:12 am on December 11th, 2012

    Hey everyone.
    Barb – what everyone else said, plus a Yowza!

    We settled for Miracle on 34th last night. The original. Now, if we could just get some GOOD versions of A Christmas Carol, we would be happy puppies.
    There are some truly dreadful versions, aren’t there? Caught part of one with Vanessa Williams as the Scrooge. Ok, THAT one was officially worse than the Susan Lucci as Scrooge.
    Why do they have to mess with something that has been done to perfection?

  18. OleyHowlers
    11:41 am on December 11th, 2012

    T&G, sticktothe Mr. McGooversion! :)

  19. OleyHowlers
    11:42 am on December 11th, 2012

    Once again, in English:
    T&G, stick to the Mr. McGoo version! :)

    Why can’t we hit that space bar on the iPaw?

  20. B.Stover
    11:42 am on December 11th, 2012

    I think that the best Christmas Carol is with Alistair Sim as Scrooge.

    “Vacuum” is a weird word isn’t it. It’s derived from Latin vacuus meaning empty.

    I’m also wondering why there is such confusion about the difference between lie (lying) and lay (laying). In general, lay is a transitive verb, meaning it needs not only a subject but an object: I am laying the book on the table. Lie is intransitive meaning it does not need a direct object: The book is lying on the table. (Real question.)

  21. Barb & Maggie
    11:44 am on December 11th, 2012

    Barb is laughing at herself. It wasn’t Jerry Van Dyke who makes the dog food and was in First Dog. It was Dick Van Patten. Boy, did she get that screwed up!

    We did watch Christmas with Holly, and have to say we really liked it. As far as the Christmas Carol ones that T & G mentioned, we love Vanessa Williams in real life, but didn’t like her version of the classic. Now Susan Lucci we can’t stand (way to much work done on that gal), but for some reason we love her as Ebbie. Go figure!

  22. Rose
    11:44 am on December 11th, 2012

    T&G: The best version of A Christmas Carol is the one with Allistair Sim. (This according to the Prof). I believe it is being shown Sunday night on Turner Classics.

  23. Rose
    11:55 am on December 11th, 2012

    B: Professors think alike!

  24. B.Stover
    11:56 am on December 11th, 2012

    I looked it up: It’s Alastair Sim.

  25. B.Stover
    11:56 am on December 11th, 2012

    Rose: LOL!

  26. Macy the min-pin
    11:58 am on December 11th, 2012

    For many, many years, mom only knew of the Mr. Magoo version. Then all others paled in comparison *cough cough*. We got the George C. Scott version over the weekend but have not yet watched it.

    I just noticed that Belle posted this morning on yesterday’s post. I have GOT to change my passwords to get on the iPaw.

    Hi Everybody!

    Computter is up and running. (I think)
    Time will tell.

    Chet: Great link about the diabetes alert dogs.
    Wose: Loved your link about our kind being trained to drive.

    Magpie: Please tell Barb we think her kitchen is Fabulous! You certainly did your part, staying in the bathroom tub while Eric the Evil was working.

    Miracle On 34th Street! Our absolute Favorite Holiday Movie. (the 1947 version) AMC is showing all the Classic Holiday Films between now and the 25th. White Christmas and the original version of Scrooge are up next.
    What fun!

    B: There the book lies (?)

  28. B.Stover
    12:34 pm on December 11th, 2012

    The George C. Scott version is good also.

  29. B.Stover
    12:36 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Bear: Correct. (No one is answering my question. It’s not a criticism; I’m just curious.)

  30. BearSpiritDog
    12:44 pm on December 11th, 2012

    B: It’s the “transitive” and “intransitive” that we find confusing…trying to remember the meanings of each.
    Having said that…we do appreciate the English lessons. Hopefully some of this information will stick…if repeated enough times…Heh.
    For those of us interested, maybe you would consider posting lessons on your blog?

  31. SnowBella
    12:48 pm on December 11th, 2012

    I wonder how are friends Wolfie and KirbyT are doing these days. I miss them both.

  32. SnowBella
    12:54 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Our, not are! Gah!

    Macy: I will try to send you the Rookie’s guide tonight. I’m heading back out on the road for a few days.

  33. B.Stover
    1:01 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Transitive and intransitive are grammatical terms. “I lay down” is not correct because “lay” is a transitive verb and requires not only a subject of the sentence but an object: “I (subject) will lay the book (object) on the table.” “I will lie down” is correct because “lie” is an intransitive verb–only a subject is required.

    I’ll stop now.

  34. OleyHowlers
    1:16 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Bee, we hate how lie does not become lieing.
    Bella, we also signed up for the Rookie guide.
    Great job, TechnoKat!
    We watched our favorite Christmas movie on Sunday: Christmas Vacation. We love Clark Griswald!

  35. Staff
    1:23 pm on December 11th, 2012

    BStover,
    I remember being confused when I posted about Alice on the table last night. I see now she should have been lying on the table on top of the catnip which was laying on the table under her.

    Do I have it correctly now?

  36. Staff
    1:25 pm on December 11th, 2012

    I do not know transitive and intransitive thingys. My mind gets clouded when they are spoken about. B, we need a little class and maybe a worksheet to complete.

  37. Barb & Maggie
    1:26 pm on December 11th, 2012

    The hen lays an egg. Transitive.

  38. Tupper and Gilly
    1:26 pm on December 11th, 2012

    All paws up for the Alistair Sim version being the best. The one before that is ok, and the George C. Scott is pretty good. We really didn’t care for the Patrick Stewart version – in the scene when he wakes on Christmas morning and is celebrating, he does this thing with letting a laugh come out – it looks like a scene from “Alien” – we were exprecting a Christmas gremlin to be regurgitated out onto the floor – ick!

    Belle – you posted too early in the morning for our Mama to notice you. She doesn’t have her eyes open at that hour unless she is at a show.

  39. Siber-H
    1:30 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Bear, Glad to have you back!

    Fellow Sibers, That is also our favorite Christmas movie. I am not sure what this says about us Sibers.

  40. B.Stover
    1:53 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Staff: The catnip was lying on the table also. In other words, “catnip” is the subject of the sentence (or in this case the relative clause. Just ignore this last bit if it’s confusing.) You could say, “Staff will lay the catnip on the table and Alice will lie on it.” (The direct object is catnip and staff is the subject in the first part of the compound sentence.) I don’t know if this helps.

    As for lying rather than lieing, I don’t know the answer except that the noun “lie” is derived from the Old English lyge.

  41. BearSpiritDog
    1:57 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Thank you, Siber-H!

    B: Don’t stop! We love it when you don your professor’s cap.
    Staff is right…we all could use a little refresher course.
    Although Barb&Magpie seem to have a better grasp on it than some of us.

    O.Howlers: Love Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase. It is on our Amazon Prime watch list.
    TechnoKat cannot take the credit this time. Where is he anyways? Off pouting, no doubt.

    SnowBella: Wolfie posted a day or so ago (wish we would hear more from him as he is one of our favorites on the blog). As for Kirby, the last we heard was in your report a while back.

    HerbKats: Did you read what happened to Josh and Jessica’s tree in the nighttime hours? What a katastrophe!

  42. B.Stover
    2:01 pm on December 11th, 2012

    And Staff, you (and everyone) do know the difference and use transitive and intransitive verbs correctly all the time without realizing it. Glitches occur occasionally.

    Whispering: Don’t let Rio know, but the mail just arrived and the Sprites Dance quilling piece was not included. It will get here….

    I did receive a beautiful card and a wonderful bookmark from C.Harris. Thank you!

  43. B.Stover
    2:02 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Forgot: Barb– Excellent!

  44. B.Stover
    2:08 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Forgot number 2: Once on a paper for a grad class I used “our” every time I meant “are.” Of course, I know the difference and I didn’t do it on purpose. My prof was not amused.

  45. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:23 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Wha!?…snort!…The Tracker says the package is ‘Out For Delivery’!…Gah!…What if it was intercepted by The Goats?…wheeze!

  46. B.Stover
    2:27 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Rio: If I don’t get the package by tomorrow I’ll go to my post office and inquire and, if necessary, complain.

  47. B.Stover
    2:28 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Rio: It is being delivered by the U.S. Post Office and not parcel post right? Parcel post never gets here until after 4PM.

  48. dawson
    2:37 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Pomegranates!
    I could not resist buying some big, very red and juicy pomegranates and peeled and ate them over a period of a week. My fingers were stained as if I had been digging in the garden!

    Wolfie Wigglebutt: I wonder how your mom makes that pomegranate jelly and if she gets stained fingers. I did order some from the store and while I wait for it to arrive I will sample Staff’s!

    Snowhook Bella: Got my calendar today. Love it!

  49. B.Stover
    2:37 pm on December 11th, 2012

    It came! It came! It came! The mailman came back with the package.

    It’s absolutely beautiful. I’ll post a picture in a bit.

  50. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:37 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Grump!…She paid extra for Priority Mail and it should have been there yesterday…grumble!…Someone is not going to be happy when she finds out about this by golly!…wheeze!

  51. dawson
    2:42 pm on December 11th, 2012

  52. Riö – The Evil Pug

    Wheeze!…Thank dawg!…snort!…I was gearing up to a full blown tantrum…heh!

  53. B.Stover
    2:58 pm on December 11th, 2012

    I’m going to wait until it’s sunny out to take and post a picture. The matting is gold and the flowers are red and pink and the leaves green. There are gold beads arranged around them also.

  54. Tupper and Gilly
    3:00 pm on December 11th, 2012

    We had a mental image of Professor Bee in high dudgeon storming into the post office, grabbing the postmaster by the collar and saying in a menacing tone”Give me my poem, or suffer the consequences!”
    tee hee.

    Rio – we have a question. Were you even grumpy as a puppy?

    We never had a pomegranate. Mama can’t eat seeds or nuts. Waaaaaaa. And they look so wonderful in their scarlet glory.

  55. Tupper and Gilly
    3:07 pm on December 11th, 2012

    We keep forgetting to say a couple of things.
    1. Rose- your package is now in the capable (?) hands of the USPS.
    2. Bee – please forgive us if we offend with grammatical errors. We will blame it on the fact that this is not our first language. After all, we ARE Welsh
    3. Tupper is a diabetes alert dog

  56. B.Stover
    3:20 pm on December 11th, 2012

    T&G: I’m hardy ever bothered by errors and if I am I say something. (It’s a necessity occasionally.) And your mental image of me at the post office was exact.

    Dawson: Have you ever had pomegranate juice? I haven’t but always see it at the grocery.

  57. Siber-H
    3:28 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Oh, That is a good one, Corgies. English not being my first language must be my problem. The Natives in Siberia didn’t even have a written language…only spoken.
    I am off the hook, so to speak.

  58. Barb & Maggie
    3:29 pm on December 11th, 2012

    We get the lay and lie confused sometimes too. Two others that really get Barb are your and you’re, and there and their. We read those used incorrectly all the time.

    Bee, check your SDD.

  59. Melanie
    3:34 pm on December 11th, 2012

    I bet you guys think I’m becoming a lurker. Another BUSY day. Whew, I’m tired. Got stuck with needles, came home and got the tree up with Jesse’s help. Nothing on the tree, but it is up.

    Hard time here and I imagine that Wölife, C.Hobbit and Terry and everyone else who has lost a parent understands. We are getting ready for Dan’s Celebration of Life Party and it ain’t easy.

    I’m having to do other things to get ready. I’m scanning photos for Zoe, trying to get a couple of videos into a frame, keeping the handkerchiefs handy.

    I am thinking of all of you.

    Anywoof, the reason I wrote is for Bella. What is “. . dropping through a hole in drum ice . .”? Should we worried about AJ?

  60. Masquers

    Sigh. Time for a nap.

    3:48 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: We are with you re those offending words. Makes my fur stand straight on end when I see them in print.

    Tupper! That is a Very impressive resume.

    Melanie: This is a very difficult time for you & Zoe and the others.
    All of you, please take care of yourselves and don’t overdo it.

  62. B.Stover
    4:00 pm on December 11th, 2012

    The project is extraordinary! Thank you for posting the photo, B.

    B: Sprites Dance is beautiful!

  70. Mollypop's Mom
    5:59 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Masquers – Actually, I am pretty tired, now that I think about it. Sammie and I did a lot of walking the past couple of days. Then today I took her back to Amherst, shopped at Wegmans so I can make Paleo tomato soup, got the car washed and waxed, did my wash, and then drove back to Ellicottville – a 120-mile round trip. It will be an early bedtime.

  71. B.Stover
    6:06 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Quiz: Masquers’ phrasing “lying down” is correct. Can anyone explain why?

  72. Barb & Maggie
    6:10 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Masquers, “Now I lay me down to sleep” is the first line in a children’s prayer.

    Rio’s friend’s work is beautiful, as always.

    Barb is going to have a Maryland crab cake from Fresh Market, along with a basil rosemary roll and greek artichoke salad. Yummers!

    Then tonight is Parenthood, Barb’s fav.

    The other has a Portugese Water Dog, romping in the snow.
    These were from 2 different incredibly impotant persons. heh heh

    Hey! Dawson is threatening to eat my Pomegranate Jelly the rat! Get yer own jelly! mutter mutter mutter.

    We did have fun today making cookies and complaining about how the other one cooks. I am an avid measurer. Dawson isn’t. She just dumps it in. I remember Maggie telling me that Dad’s mother measured with her hands.

    So Dawson doesn’t like my way of measuring and I don’t like her way of creaming. It wasn’t ‘light’. Can anyone tell me if “Cream until light” means light in color or light as in fluffy? We have a difference of opinion. Heh. We both enjoyed it a lot and then we played a game of cards and I revenged myself on her ‘creaming’ me at cards last night.

  76. Princess Sam
    6:29 pm on December 11th, 2012

    B., lying down – down is not an object, an adverb perhaps. Anyway, it modifies lying, which doesn’t use an object.

  77. B.Stover
    6:29 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Staff: I have always thought that “light” means both color and fluffy. As the mixture gets fluffy it also gets light.

    Sprites Dance is beautiful. I think Rio’s friend should start a business. Would it be best to start online?

  78. B.Stover
    6:33 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Sam: What??? “I just woke up from lying down” is correct because the subject of the sentence “I” is doing the “lying” so lying is correct rather than laying. “I will lay Sam down so she can sleep.” “Sam is lying down to rest.”

  79. c.hobbit

    Amelia: I love the husky pins I bought from the Holiday Boutique. I bought one of each style and can’t make up my mind which one I like best. Thank you.

  80. B.Stover
    6:39 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Just in case: “Now I lay me down to sleep” is correct because the subject “I” is doing the laying of the object “me.”

    To Barb and MagPie,

    So, bye bye Christmas tree good-bye
    Should have tie-ed the tree to the wall with some fishing line
    Them Barb and Maggie were drinking mojitos, singing

    7:35 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Wolfie!…Hey, Wolfie is still blurry and he is up top of the page…snort!…I’m only saying this because Wolfie has been missing and I think he should check into Mission Headquarters or we will be sending a S.W.A.T.(Super Wookie And Tenzing) team out to look for him…grunt!

    B.Stover: Pomegranate juice is yummy but rather strong (concentrated). Sometimes I add sparkling water to it. Normally I don’t buy it because it is pricey…but if it goes on sale…

    Lie – needs subject only and lay needs subject and object. I think.

  89. Barb & Maggie
    7:46 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Melanie, We love your song.

    Sammy confused us, but if Bee says you are right, we will take her word for it.

    Now time for dinner then tv. Night all. I think we are even beating Melanie tonight.

    Rio! Read and responded, and no TMGs!

  91. Melanie
    7:53 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Two minutes ago and I would have beat Barb and MagPie.

    T&G say Golinka and Storyteller are wandering around a big store not finding what they want. Golinka wants pants with pockets. There doesn’t seem to be any.

    Bella, still waiting to hear what happened to AJ.

    I was going to say something else but that’s gone.

    TTFN

  92. Melanie
    7:55 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Oh, pretzels arrived!

    Also cards have arrived. Thank you so much everyone. I’ll be writing emails to people. But for now?

    TTFN really.

  93. B.Stover
    7:58 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Dawson: I don’t think the pom…juice that I can get at the grocery is concentrate but I’ll check. And correct about lie/lay example.

  94. dawson
    8:07 pm on December 11th, 2012

    B.Stover: No, I meant that the juice tastes strong…it is not concentrated. I’m working with my evening brain.
    Think I’ll go try to find the Parenthood show.

    Staff is packing to go home for a few days. (A routine doctor appointment.) Phooey.

    Kirby has been missing since before Hurricane Sanday.

    Terry: Hope the cleanup and rebuilding is going on apace in your area.

  95. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:18 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Wah!….I just went to the Boutique to purchase more pretzels and they are ALL GONE!…sob!sob!sob!…Now we will have to ration the ones we have left…sniffle!

  96. c.hobbit
    8:27 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Rio: I might have gotten the last of the pretzels. You snooze, you lose.

    Shoveled 6″ of snow from the driveway. We are supposed to get another 10″ tomorrow. By Friday we are back to -40 temperatures.

  97. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:28 pm on December 11th, 2012

    CHobbit!…grump!burp!

  98. Kat
    8:34 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Commander Rio, I would like to go on the special Wolfie Hunting mission. My nose is really really good, so I will be a big asset. Really.
    Pretty please?
    Mom is so darn worried about him…maybe because she thinks my blurring technique is not quite up to snuff.

  99. B.Stover
    8:41 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Dawson: I understand now.

  100. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:42 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Kat!…We will need all the recruits we can get…snort!…I applaud you for being first in line to volunteer, right after Wookie and Tenzin…chuffle!…Plans are in the works as I type right now. Headquarters has Rockie the Undercover Squirrel and his HillBillie gang in trees and on the ground spread-out looking for clues as to Wolfies whereabouts…sniff!sniff!…The SWAT Team is standing by….wheeze!

  101. BearSpiritDog
    8:46 pm on December 11th, 2012

    It’s Early to Bed because of:
    Gloomy, overcast, rainy weather.
    The cursed Time changes.
    Early rising.

    It’s time for supper…then maybe…National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
    Tomorrow is the last of the sequence of numbers…12-12-12.
    Until then – Bear

  102. BearSpiritDog
    8:55 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Wait! Before I go…wasn’t Wolfie experimenting with Time Travel? I hope he isn’t lost somewhere in the Time-Space Continuum!

  103. OleyHowlers
    8:55 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Sad news from Portland, Oregon. Gunman in a mall opened fire.

  104. OleyHowlers
    8:58 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Bear, perhaps he is flipping territories like in the book “The Talisman”. shudder

  105. Princess Sam
    8:58 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Rio, count me in to go find Wolfie. Don’t count on Rocky, I saw him on tv today selling Pepto Bimol.

  106. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:01 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Gah!…Rockie is and always has been a blatant Capitalist…grunt!…He needs work now though, that commercial was taped….sniff!

  107. OleyHowlers
    9:02 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Rio, we can’t work with Rocky either. Our Uncle Boris Badanov would not approve.

  108. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:03 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Sammie!…Great! Pack your gear in your little backpack and be ready for anything!…snort!…We need more recruits…dammit!

  109. Princess Sam
    9:08 pm on December 11th, 2012

    I’m ready!

  110. Kat
    9:12 pm on December 11th, 2012

    I’m so glad Her Highness is on the mission! If I could ever wake up Dima, I’m sure he’d come too. But now Mom is saying it is beddy bye time. She is on call this week, so if youse guys are ready to leave, you can just call her pager and I’ll be ready.

  112. Kat

    Belle Starr, are you and Luna joining up? You gotta help. This is Wolfie!!!!!

  113. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:16 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Maskers!…Can Bear pack us all special Breakfasts and Lunches?…snort!…Possibly Suppers too depending on how long this rescue mission takes!…wheeze!

  115. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    9:38 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Vorld’s Best Undercover Spy is avaiting orders for Mission Volfie Recovery.
    Is true that Siber makes Natasha’s heart go pitter pat, but Volfie is favorite dance partner for big vedding parties.
    Ve can take Porsche if you vish.

  116. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:39 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Wookie!…You will be leading search and rescue team #1 and Tenzing will be leading search and rescue team #2…snort!…Once we have all the food sorted and the equipment packed into little backpacks for the volunteer Recruits, don’t forget those little earplug communicators, we can start the search..wheeze!…Wait! We still need actual Recruits to carry all this stuff and to search of course!

  117. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:43 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Wookie!…check!
    Tenzin!…no response – might be traveling…snort!
    Sammie… Check!

    Maskers!….Check!

  118. Siber-H
    9:51 pm on December 11th, 2012

  119. Siber-H
    10:05 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Along with the food, Bear should also be in charge of naps.

  120. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:10 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Naps!…Once you guys are on the offical search and resuce journey there will be no naps till Wolfie is found and returned to the blog….grunt!

  121. Tenzing
    10:39 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Rio: Just say go and 00Wookie and I will be gone. Belle Starr wants to join the search and rescue mission, but I told her no.

    My Lady is at her second home—the airport. She is waiting to go to her third home—the village in the far north. It is 20 to 30 degrees warmer but she heard there is a winter storm advisory.

    Melanie: My lady doesn’t know what happened to AJ. Maybe she will call him for details.

  122. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    10:39 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Some von help Natasha remember – did Wolfie like the red high heels from Supper Bowl party, or electric blue vons from royal vedding?

  123. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:45 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Tenzing!….Woooo!…Now we have both our team leaders…snort!…Everyone get a good nights sleep tonight and make arrangements to be away from your yards for up to as long as Bears food provisions hold out…grunt!…We still need a few more recruits to join the pack before we can make up the teams…sniff!…Tomorrow morning, mountain-time we will meet up again…chuffle!

  124. Tenzing
    10:48 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Rio: Count all of Snowhook amongte ranks ready to serve except for Belle Starr. She slept on my most favorite pillow and now it smells like her. She should stay home as penance.

    Should we ready any dog sleds for the search?

  125. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:48 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Natasha!…Your little backpack will have limited space for just the necessities so you may want to re-think your shoe choices….grunt!…Think Shoes or Food…gruffle!

  126. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:50 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Natasha!…Your little backpack will have limited space for just the necessities so you may want to re-think your choices….grunt!…Think S-h-o-e-s or Food…gruffle!

  127. Tenzing
    10:52 pm on December 11th, 2012

    My money is that Natasha will opt for shews.

  128. Siber-H
    10:55 pm on December 11th, 2012

    More than one pair of shoes.

    Night All

    We must be rested for tomorrow’s mission.

    10:56 pm on December 11th, 2012

    10:56 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Sled-Dawgs!…Stand down for the time being…sniff!…Wookie, Tenzin and Rockie The Undercover Squirrel need to bring me their Intel before all the recruits are broken into teams and then search and rescue…sniff!

  131. Staff
    11:01 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Alice wants in. She will fly a helicopter if needed. She says the Lear Jet is not maneuverable enough. She can’t spell maneuverable. Thank Dog for spell check.

    Abbie is napping so I guess she can be the communications center. I will wake her up if there are any phone calls.

    Rest up everyone. We move out at first light.

  132. Tenzing
    11:03 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Maybe I can distract the team with some fish until the time they are needed.

    My intel is limited at present, but we can confirm Wolfie is missed. His current blurrabouts are unknown.

  133. Tenzing
    11:14 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Commander Rio: Did you see that? There was a blurry blip on the Plunderer-track-o-meter3000. It was there and then it was gone in a, well a blur.

  134. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:17 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Tenzing!…I did not see it, but then again I was napping…snuffle!…Don’t wake me up again till breakfast is served…grunt!

    11:43 pm on December 11th, 2012

    Have you ever given AJ specific instructions to hold checks when they arrive so payments can be tracked only to realize he didn’t tell you about recieving some payments while you were traveling? Gah! Double gah! I’m pretty sure the Plunderers are good for it, so if you’re waiting for the go ahead to ship items to auction winners, the go ahead is now given! Please send me a SDD if you need the address or name of the winner.
