No Post Tomorrow

Spence is en route to the BlogPaws conference in Salt Lake City. Or will be. He’s the kind of guy who needs his sleep, and not just because it knits up the raveled sleeve of care.

    Happy trails, Spence!
    Maybe you can pick up a certain pug ( or two) and their friend, so they can hear you talk, and sign a certain pug’s copies of your books!

    Man, it is hot in NY already!

    Greetings to all, and stay cool!

    Rebecca, I just read last night’s posts and I am so sorry to hear about Bridger. Sob,sniff. Just as he will always be in your heart, so you, will always be in his.

    Oh my dog! You are going to see Spence, how great is that! Say hello to him from the rest of us guys, and look in very corner….maybe Chet will be there too! 🙂

    Have a safe trip, and although I will not be able to come to your talk, I will be there in spirit! Knock it out of the park!

    Few tears this morning. Bridger, as OTAS (when he was very young) soft landing for you. If you see any Newfs hanging around be sure to say hi.

    Dawson, it’s a good thing you said something about the videographer, because this one completely forgot she didn’t have the Flip and has now sent an email to OTAS and GLAD that I need it.

    Bella, YOU are coming that is good enough for us!

    The people in charge of the weather have now tacked on another day of heat. YIKES!

    Good morning. We just caught up on last night’s blog. Bridger! Sniff…we sent messages to Boris and Misha to be on the lookout for Bridger so they can greet him at the Bridge.
    Is Rebecca going to Salt Lake City before she goes to Atlanta and then FloMa? Wow…lucky her. We didn’t know this.
    Do we need ID for the BDHW Big Event?

    9:30 am on June 21st, 2012

    Hmmm, OleyHowlers, I’m thinking I might actually spring for a new shirt that I can put my Iditarod patch and Chet the Dog patch on and wear my ID. If I don’t get a new shirt I will get stomped and trampled on by a pink bulldozer.

    9:35 am on June 21st, 2012

    Our CTD patch is on Mom’s winter coat. We can use our Iditarod patch, but Mom can’t sew. Maybe we will have our Snowhok shirt? Doesn’t sound like it though. We’re thinking the only way youse guys will recognize us is by looking for the bestest looking husky at the Big Event. (whispering)…T&G, no other huskies will be there, right?

    Putting on my wish list, along with safe travel for everybody and Maggie’s house selling and everything else we know about – a contact Bella makes at BlogPaws will give Snowhook some new sponsorship.

    The Blog is buzzing with News!!!
    Rebecca will be at Blogpaws to see and talk to our favorite author.
    Plunderers preparing for the Big Event next Friday. A few Lucky Dogs will actually BE there in furson to see history made. How cool is that?

    Dear Bridger: You are the Best of Dogs. Goodbye for now. All who love you will see you again. In the meantime there are many to welcome you over the Bridge.

    Good morning all.

    “Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
    Creeps this petty pace from day to day
    To the last syllable of recorded time,
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle.
    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.”

    May favorite lines from Macbeth.

    Staff – Mama says thanks for the offer, but she has no good pictures of herself. She will see if Melanie can find and Photoshop a picture that is part Rita Heyworth, part Sophia Loren and part Barney the Dinosaur. Voila! Mama!

    Whew, back from picking up the Subaru. It is happier now. Notice I didn’t say Tip Top, but it is happier.

    Patsy and I went to the pet store to pick up a clicker. I trained Patsy on a clicker and it is now Gracie’s turn. (Not until it cools down though.) Patsy was a hit! Everyone caller her a guy, we set them right, and there were two Sams there. Cute but not as cute as our Princess! Patsy said hello and then wanted to lick them all over. They were up for it, but I don’t think their friend was. snicker

    Licking!…Beau recently started licking my friends hands …sniff!…The other day he jumped on her lap during a baseball game and gave her a big ole smooch right on the face…heh!heh!…His breath is so bad that she said it was like having a cow-pie smeared on her face…chorkel!

    Rio – that is good new about Beau. It means he is really starting to forget his old life and trust his happy, new forever home.

    Either that or he was being rotten and “sharing” his cow-pie breath.

    11:44 am on June 21st, 2012

    I landed in Pheonix a few moments ago. Soon I will catch my connecting flight to SLC.

    Staff: thank you for posting my badge. Alas, I won’t have access to a printer. Grump.

    Thanks to all for your comforting words about Bridger. AJ will take him in during the frst part of July, but I had to say my good-byes yesterday. AJ has promised me that he will remind Bridger that I love him when the time comes.

    Howlers: I have your Snowhook Wear in my backpack right now. I will hand deliver said items to you in person. I put them in my suitcase and they put me over the weight limit. “That will be $90, please.” Once I regained my wits, I put your items in my backpack and thought ‘to hell if I look like a hunchback.’

    I packaged up all other hoodie and t-shirt orders last night. AJ will ship them out today.

    To whom it may concern.

    A while ago I mentioned my friends Mom, Joyce, who was a pro baseball player in the Women’s league many years ago. One of the plunderers wanted to know the name of her team. Joyce’s daughter tells me that Joyce was a member of the Minneapolis Millers. She also noted that the name of the team changed several times after that.

  32. Staff
    12:06 pm on June 21st, 2012

    OleyHowlers and Royals, Done.
    Staff, please check SDD.

    Exercise in futility . . .

    Lost the deck screws, found the deck screws when putting groceries away. Found the electric drill. Went outside. Found loose board. Put deck screw on board to drill in. Wood too old. Find drill bits. Ummm, nephews have not put drill bits back in case. Now have a bit that MIGHT work. Start putting hole in. Drill quits. Drill needs a different battery, can’t get the drill bit out. Have to undo drill from bit and put another battery in and take first battery to charge. Drill now has full charge. Have to try to put drill back on to bit. Jeez. Drill hole!!!!! Put screw in hole. Start drilling.

    Now I purposely bought the more expensive screws that you can’t strip. WRONG!

    The screw is now stripped completely and still has 1 inch showing. SNIGLEFRITZ! Go to get hammer. We have three hammers none of them are where they are supposed to be. Get heavy mallet. WHAM, WHAM, WHAM. Heh, heh . . . in and NO ONE will ever get that sucker out. Then I whammed some more just to take my frustrations out!

    Now I have to wait until Zoë gets back from the great JonnyG’s to go to our local lumber yard for the correct drill bit.

    I think I’ll have lunch now . . .

    Plunderers, Mom is so wishy washy that she can’t make a decision to save her soul. She now wants the Plunderers to vote for the winner of the roadtrip to see the BDHW Big Event.

    12:12 pm on June 21st, 2012

    Bella – doncha just hate the games airlines play? Why should it be $90 if your suitcase weighs 51 pounds and your backpack is 19 pounds- but if your suitcase weighs 50 pounds and your backPack weighs 20 pounds it’s free????

    Jeeze Louise – it’s still all going on the same plane and weighs the same total!!!

    We hate sneaky pricing and fees that make no sense!

    Howlers – we always say, when in doubt, go with the known quantity. You mentioned that Dima is a great traveler.
    Besides which, if Meashka the Hot One stays home without your Mom’s watchful eye, maybe Siber can blur in for a quick rendezvous under the stars.

    Riö: Sneaky way to get on the blog first pal.
    Today, on the longest day of the year, it is sunny and warm. More purrfect it could not be.
    Do I have a badge? If not I must.
    Alice: Tell Staff to expect photos from us asap.
    (whispering) Are you doing modeling work on the side?
    Staff: We were the ones asking what team your friend’s mom Joyce played on. Minneapolis Millerettes. Heh. Right out of A League of Their Own.
    B: Although more often than not gloomy prose, I love quotes from MacBeth.
    Bella: If you will be wearing your pink SK hat Spence will recognize you no problem.
    Strange to have to fly south to Phoenix and then turn around and fly north back to SLC.

  44. OleyHowlers
    12:27 pm on June 21st, 2012

    Siber: yes it is between Dima, Meashka, and Kat.
    Sasha wouldn’t know that she was anywhere but Oley. 🙁

    Gosh, what a busy day on the blog. Barb doesn’t have much time, due to the CL being somewhat busy today.

    We wish safe travels and mild temps all around.

    Barb has started reading The Dog Who Dances. Loves it, although she thinks a certain trucker (yes, we did say trucker) needs to be worked over with a baseball bat (sorry Bee), or perhaps a cattle prod! Barb got very, very mad at that character!

    B.Stover, perhaps it’s for two days. Yesterday and Tomorrow’s yesterday.

    O.Howlers: Road Trip! Let’s see…you could always draw straws for the honor, but then there’s that darn opposable thumbs problem.
    As Tupper&Gilly pointed out, your mom would be safest with the one who has been on long road trips in the past. On the other paw, if she remains at home, Meashka could indeed have a rendezvous with Siber-H under the Full Moon, which is coming up shortly.
    But…What’s that I see? Kat is raising her paw saying Me, Me, Me.

    Melanie: We sympathize with all you are going through getting the pool ready for the Pack. Nothing like a stress filled morning to wear you out before the day is even half over.

  54. OleyHowlers
    1:00 pm on June 21st, 2012

    Note: Kat is used to drives to her kamp, which took ~1 hr 15 mins each way. She sleeps as soon as she is in the car.
    Meashka has had her hands full this year, taking care of her aging sister Sasha, and then raising Kat. So she could use the break. On the other paw, what would Sasha and Kat do on their own without Mama-Meash?
    Dima is a good calm guy, but he does tend to worry when his routine is unterrupted. Although, if Rebecca were to get nervous, he would sit stoically by her side so that she could keep a hand on his head. He has a very calming presence.

  64. Siber-H
    1:32 pm on June 21st, 2012

    I vote for Dima because us guys need to stick together. This has already been mentioned, but us guy Sibers tend to be somewhat calmer than girl Sibers and, well, less squirrely.

  65. Tupper and Gilly
    1:56 pm on June 21st, 2012

    Siber – less “squirrel-y”?!?! Mama laughed out loud at that one.

    If Dima is that easy going- we really think he should be the one to come. Rebecca is going to be on a stage with an upholstered chair, a side table and lamp and maybe a coatrack with coats. Kind of a living room set. Mama would love to have a dog on stage with her – you know- just kind of hangin’ around the living room.

    Staff – the ID badges are wonderful , but we are going to ask Melanie if she has the Wrotten Kats picture that she took. They really are Dad’s Kats.

  74. B.Stover
    2:53 pm on June 21st, 2012

    Sorry Staff–I’ve been away from the computer. The badges are correct: If more than one thing is involved, the apostrophe goes after the “s.” (Royals’ Mom) Good job!

    By the way, the “b” in Macbeth is not capitalized.

    3:12 pm on June 21st, 2012

    Dima – we may not be able to have a couch for you. Would you settle for a nice comfy floor pad?

    Rio – I, Tupper, would behave on stage as long as there werent any sudden noises like applause or bursts of laughter. And as long as I was being petted. And as long as Mama was in sight.

    Gilly wouldn’t behave under any conditions. Remember, she is Silly Gilly, the Show Off Dog.

    Rio: There was a commotion at the airport. It seems someone was trying to go up on the down escalator. I thought I spotted someone meeting SQPAs description, but it was difficult to tell given the black rimmed glasses with the fake nose. By the time I got close enough security had apprehended the assailant and hauled him off for general ne’er do welling. Could it have been Spence? We may never know.

    Meashka: I don’t think it is the Borzoi. A certain Siber may have reasons of his own.
    A beautiful photo of Mollypop for the badge.

    I just want youse guys to know that The Royals’ Mum is doing everything to get ready for this BIG event. Well, as far as I know she hasn’t written Bella’s talk . . .

    I am just making it here. Trying to get the pool ready. Finally got the stairs and dock put back together except for one piece. Have to get up early and over to the lumber yard and get more screws. I am recruiting nephews with good backs to put it back in the pool.
    Zoë and I are scared to death and happy that Dan is coming home. He is extremely frail and has the temperament of a young child. His brain works most of the time and if he takes the medication he’s supposed to (which he will because I’ll stand over him and stroke his throat) he does not have hallucinations and is in a good mood.

    (aside) I really feel that we have let our elders down when it comes to the later years. Each state is different, but all of you whose parents are getting older make sure you understand your state’s laws when it comes to elder care.

    Jesse has not been here for over a week. He ruptured a disk. So we are trying to keep up with things and make sure the west wing is safe for Dan.

    If I seem distracted it is because I am. I cry about once every two days and that seems to help. I am SOOOOOOOOOOO looking forward to being with friends I have never met face to face.

    I give The Royals’ Mum a standing ovation.

  109. OleyHowlers
    7:35 pm on June 21st, 2012

    Lost! I forgot how to drive in a big city with hoards of people. AJ and I went to school in SLC and I can’t believe I used to drive these roads. Things seem a little familiar, but I’ve spent most of the day wandering about. I saw our old apartment and other places we looked at renting. Boy, he have come along way. It is not that our finances were a mess then, they were just nonexistent. I remember how overjoyed when we both got full time jobs that paid over $10 per hour.

    Tomorrow is the day that I go the Blogpaws to meet Spence and Admin if I am lucky.

    I am staying the night at my aunt and uncle’s house. I don’t think they have wifi so I may be MIA tonight. Rio, I am in the same time zone as you and SiberH. I love t when that happens.

    Standing ovation for Golinka and a standing I for Melanie for holding it together as well as she does.

    Here is the ID for Mollypop’s Mom.

    Hey, y’all! I’ve been outta the loop for a few days. Mom has been extra busy at the library — summer reading always brings lots of business! — plus she had to do Vacation Bible School, so she hasn’t been around much to turn the computer on for me. 🙁 But now I’m back. I’ve caught up on today’s blog, but I still have to go back and catch up on all the days I missed. I wish I could head up to Massachusetts, but at least Mom’s still trying to get to Atlanta!
