No Post Today (Again)

Still too much digital wackiness, Bernie says.

“Did you see what went on in comments yesterday?” Admin says.

“Some funny dudes down there,” says Spence. “One in particular. And I kind of sensed weird things going on here at HQ.”

“Not me,” says Admin.

“Then maybe it was a dream,” Spence says. “Although in dreams begins responsibility, as they say.”

“Not they, exactly,” says Admin. “Did we get a fix on what went on in Vegas yesterday?”

    Hi Chet!

    I love the German Book Trailer! But, I'm sure you are better looking than this.

    "And one in particular"

    Tee hee

    That would be you Rio!

    I think Spence is 'flummoxed' by you.

    Abbie, you're right. Rio, you're the 'one in particular'! Congrats!

    Rio: you have flummoxed Spence and been noticed doing it!

    Yukari: Chet IS better looking than the pooch in that trailer. Bernie too.

    Admin is so clueless it's pathetic.

    Chet: Could you have Admin alphabetize your friends. I can't find Lexi. No Post Today (Again)…guess we'll have to wake up Rio.

    Rio: Wake up and smell the roses.

    Well!…Seems like the mission was a success in that Admin and Spence do not have any lasting suspicions!…snort!… and the Mac the Newf,..(heh)… told me in his report that he had put some of the same objects found in the brief case, inside the duplicate brief case….grunt!… Admin will never realize it’s not the original…..wheeze!

    There may be digital wackiness – but I'm loving the pictures of all the Friends of Chet. It may be blasphemous to say this – but some of the best pictures of dogs have cats in them…

    In my life, dogs and cats – living together – have always been the most entertaining – the most companionable.

    Hi Diane. I agree. I've always liked watching cats and dogs together. My favorite picture in the slide show is the dog and cat together. (Sorry, I can't remember who they are. Anyone know?)

    Yeats quoted "In dreams begins responsibility" as an epigraph to his collection Responsibilities. I didn't know that. Thank you Spence.

    I hope nothing happened in Vegas yesterday.

    Craps!… What happens in Vegas – stays in Vegas…. Snort!… That’s my experience anyway….grunt!

    It's just that Chet and Bernie's finances are already a mess.

  16. Rio - The Evil Pug
    7:09 am on March 25th, 2010

    Hmmm!… Hopefully they are working on the Ray Jason missing persons case … snort!… and not pissing away all their money at the Craps table. .. grunt!… although I could definitely see him drinking too much bourbon and blowing on some dice….wheeze!

  17. Rio - The Evil Pug
    7:30 am on March 25th, 2010

    Everyone!…cough!… I’m not ignoring all of your nice comments today (Spencer included)…. Snort!… I’m just very humbled, and also very happy everyone enjoyed the mission… wheeze!… and had a good time yesterday. …sniff!… Thanks.

    Chet didn't seem to think they were going there on a case. He was worried about the "hunch."

  19. Rio - The Evil Pug

    Vegas!… Bernie’s hunches usually pan out….snort!… unless a checkbook is required. .. grunt!

    Rio: You are definately the one! I had a great time yesterday. What is it that I am suppose to have? I don't know if I have it, but I might if have it if I just knew what it was.

    I agree with Yukari, Chet is better looking that the dog in the video. Chet has "prick" ears just like me. It still is a cute video and deserved to win the award.

  21. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:20 am on March 25th, 2010

    Siber-H!…. You don’t have it!… snort!…If you had it, you would know… grunt!… So I know you don’t have it… wheeze!….

    [ do you? ]

    Prick Ears!… oh Siber-pal, you give me way too much material to work with…. Heh!

  22. Siberian Husky
    9:28 am on March 25th, 2010

    If I had it, I buried it far away in the mountians, but since it had no food in it, I'll never remember where it is.

  23. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:42 am on March 25th, 2010

    Siber-buddy!… you are not just toying with me, are you?…snort!… If you really do have it, you would share it with me…. grunt!…. right?

  24. B. Stover
    9:44 am on March 25th, 2010

    The publication date?

  25. Rio - The Evil Pug
    10:12 am on March 25th, 2010

    Siber-H!… I believe you… snort!… It’s just that you were in the bedroom all alone when you found the brief case….grunt!… well never mind…. wheeze!…. I will quit badgering you about it….cough!

    11:15 am on March 25th, 2010

    Recognition is a wonderful thing.

    Rio, we are so proud of you and the mission.

    I always knew that Mac had some brains.

    He just doesn't show them very often.

    Congratulations to all of the mission(aries).

  27. Rio - The Evil Pug
    1:37 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Thanks!… Melanie…snort!… It was fun having more volunteers on the mission this time…grunt!… Poor Wookie didn’t have to carry the whole thing…. wheeze!… He is such a busy guy these days with all his quilting projects…snicker!

  29. Rio - The Evil Pug
    2:13 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Huff!… I hope she is in pure misery!… heh.

    Stover!… Do you by any chance play Chess?…snort!

  30. B. Stover
    2:34 pm on March 25th, 2010

    I can play chess but I'm not very good at it.

  31. Rio - The Evil Pug
    2:59 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Even Better!… Wanna play a game with me?… snort!… Not right now!… heh!…We’d have to organize a bit… wheeze! … Figure out how to do it… maybe we could send our moves through this here blog…. gruff!… I haven’t played in years!…cough!…cough!… I just want to again for some reason and I can’t find anyone who wants to play… snuff!… no pressure… if you don't want to..snort!…just say the word!

  32. Rio - The Evil Pug
    3:19 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Wow!… Everyone is hung-over today….snort!… Glad I was our of booze last night… heh!… I feel great!

    Gee!….I wonder if any other authors blog is like this one… grunt!…I just feel like this has to be a unique place and a unique experience because we have such a great guy in two entities to be here for… snort! … plus Admin for added entertainment!….heh!… Don’t you all think this is a great blog? …snuff!… and a great place to hang out when you have some spare time?

  33. B. Stover
    3:19 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Is there such a thing as team chess? I think it would be fun to get others on the blog and maybe have teams of two or three each? One thing I've never liked about chess is that you can't talk moves over with a team mate.

  34. Rio - The Evil Pug
    3:26 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Hmmm!… this is the Second time today we have posted at exactly the same time…snort!… Its starting to freak me out!…shiver!

    Team Chess!… Are you out of your mind?… wheeze!…There has never been Team Chess…heh!… Not in the history of the World! ….grunt!… I can’t do team Chess… sorry!… that would annoy and aggravate me to no end…cough!

  35. Rio - The Evil Pug
    3:30 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Stover!… If there are 4-6 other guys on this blog [ ?? ] that play chess… snort!… we could to a round-robin type thing….wheeze!…like March Madness…gasp!…but no asking for help from teammates by golly!…. gruff!

  36. B. Stover
    3:30 pm on March 25th, 2010

    But it's fun making history.

  37. B. Stover
    3:31 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Now you're really freaked, right?

  38. Rio - The Evil Pug
    3:34 pm on March 25th, 2010

    yes!… totally!

  39. Mollypop
    3:36 pm on March 25th, 2010

    I'm with B. – Team Chess – Yeah!

  40. Rio - The Evil Pug
    3:49 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Count me out!…snort!

  41. B. Stover
    3:57 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Well, round-robin is fine….except I don't know what that is. Can we get it set up?

  42. Siberian Husky
    4:01 pm on March 25th, 2010

    I think this is a great blog, Rio. It's the best. Animal people and animals are my very favorites in this world. That includes pugs who give us all a hiliarious hard time and cats who are drug addicts.

    I didn't find the briefcase in the bedroom, but I did find one half of a smashed twinkie, which I gobbled up. Chet would have done the same thing.

  43. Rio - The Evil Pug
    4:07 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Hmmmm…. Lets just see if there are any other blog members who like Chess… snort!… I would have to think about how to do this even if just you and I (no cheating)…play!

  44. Siberian Husky
    4:09 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Chess?? Are you guys kidding me? This I gotta see, but in the meantime, I'll be outside chasing rabbits, birds, roadrunners, and all that good stuff that comes with Spring.

  45. AbbietheKitty

    ~Chess. I know the moves but I can't think that far ahead. I am always beaten at chess. Makes me grouchy.

    BTW what's up with Alice? She got this big box in the mail today and she is crooning over the contents in a monotone. Sounds like lollipop??? She didn't like it when I meowed loudly either! And look what was in it! I would be happy with a haul like that!

    [img ] food.jpg[/img]

    If I had to use one word to describe her mood it would be "sullen".

    Okay!… Siber-H!… snuff!… I knew you were clean!…grunt!… you are so clean, you squeak!…nice…and by the way, You did find the brief case in the bedroom!…heh.

  47. Rio - The Evil Pug
    4:15 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Hmmmph!…Alice and her Haul!…grunt!… I canceled the blog team credit card so it can’t be charged to Headquarters….snort!… I wonder how closely Admin looks at those bills….ooooer!

  48. Rio - The Evil Pug
    4:19 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Whew!… at least her eyes are closed and she’s not hypnotizing any of my Agents!… snort!

  49. Mollypop
    4:20 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Could Alice just be quiet about what she receives in the mail?

  50. Siberian Husky
    4:23 pm on March 25th, 2010

    Now, think about that about that Rio. Knowing me like you do, which do you think I would notice-the briefcase or the twinkie.

    Alice looks hungover.

    Siber-H!… Knowing you now like I do…snort!… there’s just no question….cough!

    Dawson's on your team Stover!…heh!… Just kidding!… I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy.

    “One in particular”… Wow! …Coming from You, that is an awesome thing for me.

    Admin!…Never seems to agree with Spencer!…snort!…No matter what he says or the subject!.. heh!… That is so funny to me … grunt!… and I hardly ever really laugh! …snicker!….So today’s post is one I will keep forever …wheeze… Very special in a lot of ways!… Amen!

    Hey Dawson,

    I will play jacks with you. Even though you always beat me. A terrible thing in a 'little' sister.

    Rio is worried that Siber'H has the manuscript.

    He thinks S-H might be secretly reading it ahead of time.

    S-H is using the "twinkie" defense. Sort of like pleading temporary insanity.

    (When you think about it, Chet forgets things often when confronted with, oh for instance, crullers or bear claws.

    I think a twinkie would do the trick too.)


    Maybe he has the manuscript and has just forgotten that he does. Maybe the influence of all that vomit on top of a twinkie just shorted something out in his cranium.


    But don't tell Rio…

    While I enjoyed the 2nd Chet & Bernie mystery, it was filled with so many dog-show errors that I found it very distracting. All of these could have been corrected in less than 5 minutes spent at the AKC web site home page. Specifically, show dogs do not have trainers unless they are competing in obedience or agility. For conformation they have handlers – that is the technical term. Anyone who shows knows this and having a character use the wrong term tells me they've never been to a show. Also, dogs do not win championships. They become champions by earning points under a minimum of 3 judges. For anyone who enjoys dog based mysteries with authentic dog show details I recommend any books by Susan Conant – funny protagonist, wonderful dogs and puzzling mysteries. And yes, I will buy the next Chet & Bernie book.
