    Early Morning Greetings!

    Spence, have a great time, and good luck at th BBF!!!

    Today, Grizz and I get to go to the dentist! There is a store down the block from the office that is the only place that makes a bagel properly.

    Good day to all, and those who are under the quilt, much love and big hugs from me.

    Love Bogs. I wonder what is wrong with his eye?

    RIO! I am so happy for your friend that she has a nice boss!

    You asked for Nana’s information:

    Skagit Valley Hospital
    1415 E. Kincaid Street
    Mt. Vernon, Wa 98273
    Critical Care. Room 2013

    Oh, and when you get a pug minute, please check your SDD.

    Belle Starr: I hope the Pixie is feeling much better. I hope you are taking good care of her. I will know she is better when you get tummies all day long.

    Did I ever tell you Grizz brushes his teeth with sparkly toothpaste?

    I hope Nana smiles again today. Love you, Nana.

    Goood morning, everyone! Wow, Rose, nice to hear from you this a.m. Sounda like you have a day planned! TY for confirming the hospital address. Oh, and I hink those are called DOGGLES to protect doggie eyes from everything! Rebecca, get healthy. Melanie et al, shouldn’t you be making gluten free cookies?
    Darah sends her love to Franklin.

    Have a satisfying Saturday.

    Have fun Spence. (I’d like to hear some of the conjured plots.)

    Rio, Beau and Friend: I love the card. Thank you.

    Good morning all.

    Spence will be home tonight in time to watch the baseball game.

    Wose, I am sure nothing is wrong with Bog’s eye. They must have goggles on him because he likes to stick his head out the window…smart move on the part of his humans.
    Mom’s first Siberian has blue eyes and they were light sensitive so sometimes the dog wore sunglasses. She didn’t mind.
    I have blue eyes but they are not light sensitive.

    I hope we we hear something about Nana today.

    Good Arfernoon All,

    Been one of those mornings. Small thing that ends up avalanche-ing to a large project. sigh.

    Anyhoo, I agree with B. Stover. I hope they share their combined plot.

    Need to rest. I’m going out this evening. Well, really this afternoon. Zoë and I just consider 4pm evening.

    Waiting, waiting, waiting….

    Someone is supposed to come see a sewing machine Mama is selling. Do they think we have all day to wait?

    Have fun at the Boston Book Festival.
    I like Bogs and his goggles.
    Another beautiful Autumn day.
    Hoping for more smiles from Nana.

    Grizz and I are going to the cinema. We are going to see THE HEIRESS on the big screen. What a classic!

    3:37 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Game!…Maybe Spencer will stay in Boston and catch the play-off game…snort!… I am going to watch it from the comfort of my couch and couch cushions. Just in case….sniff!…It starts in about 25 minutes…chuffle!

    I have my first guests from North Pole. We’ve been eating and shopping our way through Anchorage and have already seen two movies. One was my first IMAX 3-D experience (Gravity) which was a great way to see that movie,

    They report that the guest beds are very comfortable. 🙂

  15. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:16 pm on October 19th, 2013

    CHobbit!…Can I be the next guest?…snort!…I will need a few things. I mentioned them to Melanie that time when the Newfs were going to pick me up…wheeze!

  16. Herd of Hounds
    4:17 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Can ya’ll believe that the gift shop at Skagit Valley Hospital is closed on the weekends????? That is as silly as some things here! Sounds like many are having a good day, except, of course, the Royals and their waiting. Our peeps went over the mountains to the west to a town called Dayton where an antique mill has a harvest fair each year. They brought home waterwheel ground corn meal, and talked to lots of members of the nation within…from mini-yorkshire terriers to a greyhound. Brought Darah home her first harness in VOLE orange (since mom says she is a TN long tailed black bear). We think she’ll outgrow it real soon.

  17. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:23 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Weird!…Our Comcast guide on the TV says the big game should be on right now, but of course it is NOT…sniff!… I looked on and they say the game starts at 6:00 ET….grunt!

  18. Herd of Hounds
    4:27 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio: So therefore your game should be on! Oops, did we do a “so therefore”?

  19. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:45 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Nope!…The game won’t be on till 4:00 my time…sniff!…We are watching a quirky movie called Moonrise Mountain or something like that. With Edward Norton, Bruce Willis and Bill Murray…snort!…What a combination of characters…heh!

  20. Herd of Hounds
    4:50 pm on October 19th, 2013

    An unusual combination, we agree. We are waiting, no patiently, for mom to give us our yummy dry kibble with a soupçon of Alpo on top.

  21. Siber-H
    4:57 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio. My newspaper says the game will be on at 6:07 our time.

  22. dawson
    5:19 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Oh sure Rio!
    I grabbed the remote and tried to find the game I was missing (again? I got the time wrong?) My heart started doing the thumpedy, thump, thump! thump! and then I saw that the game doesn’t start until 4:30 my time (It’s 2:15 now). Well, I’m awake now!
    I also see that the baseball game interferes with a Chicago Blackhawks versus Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game. I better get my seat early or that man will get the remote.

    Howdy! We’ve been busy mowing grass for hopefully the last time of the season, picking peppers and putting that bed to sleep, and our usual barn chores. Now we are informed that the ‘rents are going to their friends’ home for dinner. It is ready to rain here, and the air has definitely changed to feel like Fall finally. The farmer cut down all his corn today. Hindreds of acres, gone in just one day. You wouldn’t believe how much that opens us up. In the summer, it makes a huge privacy wall around our entire farm. But now we can see forever.

    5:40 pm on October 19th, 2013

    SiberH!…Do you know what channel it is going to be on?…sniff!…I have to go supervise someone making a casserole for supper right now…dammit!…Too close to the game that’s for sure….wheeze!

  25. Siber-H
    5:52 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio, The game will be on the Fox channel.

  26. Tupper and Gilly
    5:58 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Would you believe that after 4 phone calls back and forth, and Mama giving these people turn by turn directions, and them saying they knew the area, and would be here around 2, blah, blah, blah, those dang people made us wait around the house for the whole day, and they never showed up!

    dang dang dang blasted people!

    A friend and I went to see the movie Fifth Estate (and an early dinner). I really enjoyed the film. Of course, I like Benedict Cumberbatch.

  29. B. Stover
    6:25 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio: I’m not sure if it’s the Tiger-Boston game you’re referring to but it started here at 4PM on Fox.

  30. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:36 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Stover!…Yes, the Tiger-Boston game is not showing here at all…grump!…I went to the Comcast TV guide online and it says the game “starts” here at 5:30pm….What!??…grumble!

  31. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:37 pm on October 19th, 2013

    TMZ!….They are showing that stupid TMZ show on Fox right now….GRRRUMP!….Can you believe this bullsh*t?…sniff!

  32. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:38 pm on October 19th, 2013

    SiberH!….What the heck is he watching?…wheeze!

  33. Melanie the Social Butterfly (not)
    6:41 pm on October 19th, 2013

    I GOT there! Our Mac Doc’s new sound studio is beautiful. I lasted about 40″ minutes. When I realised I was about ready cry from exaustion,I left.

    Ta Da! Zzzzzzzzzz

  34. B. Stover
    6:44 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio: The game here is being shown live. Perhaps they will be showing a recording there at 5:30 your time. The games is supposed to end here in about fifteen minutes.

  35. Siber-H
    6:47 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio, I am not watching anything because I took my newspapers word on when it would start.

    Oh boy! Stover is posting about baseball.

  36. Siber-H
    6:49 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio, The internet says the game starts at 6:07 our time.

  37. Tupper and Gilly
    6:50 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Bee – Glad you had a good time. Is Benedict Cumberbatch in the movie, or is that the wine you had with dinner?

    We hate to show our geographical ignorance, but we were just watching the news about the wild fires in New South Wales in Australia. Is our friend Liz near that area?

  38. Tupper and Gilly
    6:51 pm on October 19th, 2013

    And if Bee is posting about baseball, who is going to make the pies?

  39. B. Stover
    6:57 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio: Okay, I have Fox on and they are just talking, talking, talking. I’ll post again when I find out what is going on.

    I’m not watching the game, I’m just trying to help. However, I think that T&G’s mom should make the pie.

  40. B. Stover
    7:01 pm on October 19th, 2013

    T&G: Benedict Cumberbatch plays the part of Julian Assange in the movie…in case your question was real. I don’t like that name for a wine.

  41. c.hobbit
    7:07 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio: I accept your conditions but Sadie hasn’t learned how to blurr visitors to Alaska. So until you save up Beau’s treatie money for a ticket you are SOL.

  42. B. Stover
    7:15 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio: Apparently the Comcast tv guide is incorrect. It now shows “Post Game” but the game has not started here yet (by which I mean Eastern time). They are still talking on Fox and interviewing players, etc. I assume the game will start at 7:30. I’ll post when it starts.

  43. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:23 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Stover!….So the game is NOT on yet?….wheeze!…I’m sorely confused…sniff!sob!sob!sniff!

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:30 pm on October 19th, 2013

    FINALLY!…The news guy on Fox just said the game is going to start right after the news…sniff!….I’ve seen every starting time under the sun for this game on the internet today…grumble!….What the hell?? How hard is it to post the starting time of a game. I’ve seen 2:00 ET, 4:00, 6:07 and now apparently it will start at 5:30ish MT….grump!

  45. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:32 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Wrong!…There will probably be a half hour of hype before the game starts, so SiberH is correct with the 6:07 starting time…wheeze! gruffle!….This has really messed someone’s day up big time…grunt!.

  46. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:36 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Dawson!…Your Tigers better win or it is all over for them and those dratted Sox will go to the World Series…sniff!

  47. B. Stover
    7:39 pm on October 19th, 2013

    According to what they are showing on Fox right now, the game starts at 8:07 PM Eastern time so Siber-H is correct about it being 6:07 Mountain time. Jeeze Louise and Grump!

  48. Tupper and Gilly
    7:40 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Rio – why don’t you just have your friend take you for a nice looooonngggg walk, and then you won’t have to worry about what time the kickoff is, or the halftime show, or the puckdrop or the tee off, or anything!

    Bee – Mama says thanks a bunch. She was going to make dog biscuits for us, but now she has to make pie. sheesh….

    She’s thinking of Nesslerode pie. Or maybe Cumberbatch. hmmm

  49. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:46 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Tupper!…We already went on that darn ole walk…grunt!…It was not fun at all.

  50. B. Stover
    7:56 pm on October 19th, 2013

    I’d love to have Nesslerode pie since I’ve never had it before.

  51. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:08 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Starting!…This game is finally going to start…grunt!…One would think it would have started way earlier on account of all the East Coast guys watching it…sniff!

    Dawson!….Did you come up with the Remote?? ….heh!

  52. Wose
    8:18 pm on October 19th, 2013

    RIO! It is 8:17 here in New York. The game is on now. Detroit is batting in the 1st inning.

  53. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:24 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Announcers!….grump!…Yup, they just had to mention the 2007 world series where the Red Sox swept the Rockies…grumble!…Just let it die already….grrrr!

  54. Herd of Hounds
    8:24 pm on October 19th, 2013

    What a day this has been….what a rare mood we’re in, why it’s almost like being…. See ya’ll in the a.m. nighty night

    9:08 pm on October 19th, 2013

    T& G. Re New South Wales. I can’t remember if Liz is from Sydney or Melbourne. If Sydney (which is where I think she is) then she could be close to the fires, because Sydney is the capital of NSW. If she is from Melbourne, then she should be fairly well removed from the fires. BTW, Sydney is one of our favoritemost cities in the world. We have a very close friend (Wookie’s and Teddy’s Uncle Alan) who lives there and who we do not see nearly often enough. Wookie had met Uncle Alan on several occasions but Teddy so far only knows him via email.

  56. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:15 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Teddy’s Paw!….Are you and Teddy watching the game tonight?….snort!… Be sure to tell Teddy that next year the Nationals vs Rockies will be the teams in the World Series…heh!heh!…There is always next year…puffle!

  57. Princess Sam
    9:34 pm on October 19th, 2013

    So Teddy Ruff Ruff is 21 weeks. He seems so much more grown up than stupid Loulou. She’s 18 weeks and Teddy is way more nature. BTW, we played like crazy today!

  58. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:40 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Sammie!….Just what do you and Lil’ LuLu play anyways? Do you play poker? Black Jack, perhaps?…sniff!

  59. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:42 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Score!….No score yet…snort!….This is a good game so far!….chuffle!…But I am very hungry and I want baseball game food and drink…sniff!

  60. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:48 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Beating!….My Dawg the Tiger’s catcher is taking another beating tonight…snuffle!…That poor guy. He has had a week of being beaten up by really fast, hard balls hitting him all over his body…grunt!…Catchers are the very bravest of baseball players, that is for sure…sniff!

  61. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:50 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Plus!…That same catcher had a Red Sox player plow into him at home plate. He finally left the game earlier in the series…wuffle!…He’s been through hell this week…grunt!

  62. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:07 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Dawg!…Oh boy, those Red Sox have scored first…sniff!…The Tigers really need to wake-up and smell those Sox and get something going…grunt!…I guess if that Fielder guy could hit a ball it would help…gruffle!…I was looking forward to seeing him play and he has done NOTHING the whole series. What is up with that?…huffle!kick!

  63. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:08 pm on October 19th, 2013

    ALONE!…Well, good bye then….grump!

  64. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:21 pm on October 19th, 2013

    I’m here, Rio. Do you remember what Spence’s predictions were?

    10:26 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Goodnight Rio and Wolfie,
    My back is aching tonight. Just a little bit. So I am going to do my back exercises and then get in bed. Maggie always did her back exercises when her back hurt so I will too.

    10:35 pm on October 19th, 2013

    At long last my Two-legged and the Giant are home at the same time. The Giant brought the team home this afternoon from an overnight training run. Last night I was a bit upset. My Two-legged called my name. I ran over for a tummy only to find Tenzing came when my name was called. His name is not the same as my name, but we both got tummies. Grump!

  67. Melanie, struggling to stay awake
    10:39 pm on October 19th, 2013

    YAWN . . . . .

  68. Belle Starr
    10:48 pm on October 19th, 2013

    I hope Melanie stays asleep tonight and doesn’t turn into a Zombie.

    My Two-legged purchased some get well cards to send to Nana. She even got one that will be from me, me, me. It has sparkles on it.

  69. Tupper's Mama
    10:49 pm on October 19th, 2013

    Melanie – go to bed.
    Staff – get Mr Staff to rub Bengay on your back.
    Rebecca and AJ – enjoy your time together
    Wolfie – we have been thinking about you and send hugs.
    Rio – May all your baseball dreams come true.

    G’night all

    Bogs lost an eye due to complications from glaucoma. His ophthalmologist said he never recommends allowing dogs to put their heads out car windows because he’s seen too much eye trauma (and worse) as a result. But he admits that most owners just won’t take this away from their dogs because they love it so much, so he recommends googles. Doesn’t Bogs look great in his “camo” Doggles?

    Just like Chet, Bogs is a “hundred-pounder” (130, actually). I cracked up when I read that when Bernie and Charlie go camping, it’s Chet’s job to carry the mallet because once we caught Bogs trotting out of the garage, tail held high, with a very large hammer dangling from his teeth. As soon as he saw us, he dropped it (missing his front paws, thank heavens) and kept on trotting, as if to say, “nothing to see here, folks.” I still wonder what he was planning to do with it.

  71. Bogs's mama
    1:29 pm on October 21st, 2013

    Whoops, the eye doc recommends goggles, not googles 🙂
