    Good Morning All!

    I saw O’Neil’s story yesterday. What a good dog, and we here in Westchester are so proud of him! What wonderful work the trainers do as well!

    Enjoy your day!

    What is up with Beppe not being in his proper place?

    On the subject of “clothes people wear” it reminds me of the old expression “Do any of these people own a mirror?”. Sometimes with bare midriffs and my personal ‘favorite’ men who are at least 50 pounds overweight in Speedos. Please……….!

    Gooood morning, everyone! We think the “Beppe Debauchal” is a plot against the wee ones of the nation within. Bring back Beppe!

    Wookie’s Mom, what about “clothes make the man (person)”? Oh where is that spandex & lame miniskirt when we need it?

    Hope for more clement weather for all.

    Have a Frabjous Friday.

    Whew, about to go out and do family wedding things.

    Dressed Up? Sorta. Got on my jeans, tee shirt, my fancy high top canvas shoes (black with flowers on them) and my favorite purple shirt (given to my by The Herbs). I am ready to go! Breakfast, then home, then the other way down the hill for errands and to Golinka’s to pick up YSAS (Thanks for picking him up at the train), back for dinner here with other members of the family.

    Oh, and if it doesn’t get WARMER, Zoë and I are wearing fleece and long underwear to the wedding!

    Good morning all. We saw the video of O”Neil yesterday as well. The driver of that vehicle was 93 years old. They said the DMV is going to test her to see if she should be driving. We think this is a good example of an elder person who should no longer be driving.

    Today is an absolutely PERFECT day in northern Illinois. We hope it is the same for all of you.

    A few errands then we will be back.

    OH: Wowser, had a raccoooon here last night but mom is a spoil sport and put in the dog doooor doooor before we could have lots of fun:( Why are 2 leggers that way?

    10:05 am on June 14th, 2013

    Good job O’Neil. That is some scary footage.

    Barb&Maggie: We had that beautiful sunny day yesterday. Enjoy it while you can. Today we are back to grey. I am appreciating the lower temperatures because I do melt in the heat.

    R&R: Today is the day I will send a check to Snowhook. I will not forget. I am adding a donation for Macy’s young friend Grant who was taken too soon and, to make the amount even, the last bit of donation will be in honor of the non-working dogs of Snowhook. Those who take care of Rebecca and the Giant while the workers are off at their summer jobs.

    Hooray! YSAS is in town. Hey T&G: Tell your mom to get him to help load the van for the bazaar.

    I have a feeling that the Beppe Substitutions are there intentionally.

  11. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:34 am on June 14th, 2013

    I wonder if Bee will notice the missing comment in an earlier post. If so, someone’s dad may be visiting Stovernia sooner than later. I hope he likes pie!

  12. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:42 am on June 14th, 2013

    Melanie, I am going to attempt blurring 20* of warm and sunshine to your town. And then, I will blur back 9″ of rain for the southwest states, especially Colorado.

    (I am taking a deep breath. I am putting on a custom made weatherized Weather Blurring doggie suit, complete with a built in umbrella and sun shield.)

    And I’m off!

    10:47 am on June 14th, 2013

    Wookie’s mom please tell us that the Speedo comment was not directed to Wookie’s dad!

    Thank you Dawson, for your sweet remembrance of Grant.

    Am I the last person in the world to discover the shortcuts on th iPaw for ‘, “, ã, ë, etc? Me so slow.
    The Old Man is about to leave for his interview, so I am just enjoying the knowledge that there is nothing I should be doing. There is a dog in the room next door who gives a friendly “woof” when we pass. There is also some kind of motorcycle convention here as well. Wish I had known, I could have worn a doorag down to breakfast!

    11:08 am on June 14th, 2013

    Another learning opportunity on the blog: I will google “doorag”.

    I am meant to be weeding but I was bitten by mosquitoes so I came back inside to assess the situation. Hmmm.

  17. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    11:09 am on June 14th, 2013

    Loving Creator, please give this job to Macy’s paw.

    Thank you.

    Okay, I got my doorag on. Those skeeters won’t mess with me now!

    Wolfie: Missing comment in an earlier post?

  20. Tupper and Gilly
    11:49 am on June 14th, 2013

    All we ask is that certain body parts that should be covered ARE! And that includes pot bellies in speedos – ewwwwwww!

    Please, please, please – let this interviewer be smart enough to know a gold mine when he sees one!

    Speaking of licenses – Gramp finally did get his renewed. He had to do a rigamarole with the eye doc and the registry and all that, but he is renewed for 2 years. Of course, he and Mama had “the talk” and he will not be driving after dark, or in unfamiliar territory, or on highways, or in bad weather of any kind. But on nice days, he can drive himself to church, or take his dog to the park or the groomer, or go to the hardware store, etc.
    Thank dog for that!

    Ah, ha. We are still discussing fashionistas…doorags and wife beaters.

  22. Herd of Hounds

    AND…speedos (eeeeewwwwww)

  23. Siber-H
    11:51 am on June 14th, 2013

    Mom here:

    Siber-H is in town at the doggie dentist getting his teeth cleaned. They put him in a doggie condo until they get to the actual teeth cleaning. He will be ready for the Snowhook store to open tomorow. (with my credit card)

    Spence, Thanks for the nice article.

    Amen to Wolfie’s prayer about Macy’s dad and the job.

    Good luck to Macy’s dad!

  26. Wolfie Wigglebutt

    Yes, Bee. Macy alluded to it also.

  27. Melanie
    1:03 pm on June 14th, 2013

    I don’t even like speedos on men who are “built”. Too much information.

    Morning fun is done. Took the plastic tents off the tomato plants. The tomatoes thanked me for keeping the safe from the three inches of rain.

    Wölfie, don’t forget to stop in and ask the Pack for help. They can get a lot of water in those jowls.

    Had a visiter last night. Not only knocked over the composter, but flipped. The Pack slept through the whole visit. Luckily, it was on the other side of the stockade fence. Sucker is HEAVY.

  28. B. Stover
    1:11 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Sorry, Wolfie. I still don’t know what you are referring to.

  29. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:22 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Stover!…I’m confused to. But it’s Rose’s comment that has me baffled…grunt!

  30. B. Stover
    1:31 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Rio: In Rose’s comment I think that “wife-beater” refers to a sleeveless shirt worn by a man.

  31. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    1:39 pm on June 14th, 2013

    I’m laughing at myself. The post of 8:49 may or may not have a missing COMMA. Not comment. Sheesh.

  32. Barb & Maggie
    1:53 pm on June 14th, 2013

    We are back. Barb did her errands, including the much put off oil change. Our car should be OK now till September.

    Dawson, I know, they are saying another chance of severe storms tomorrow. We will enjoy today for all its perfection.

  33. Herd of Hounds
    1:54 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Calloooo, callay Frabjous Friday. The “wife beater” is just a Brando-ized name for an old fashioned men’s undershirt. Soooo, picture a stylin’ guy in his speedo, wife beater and topped off with a doorag. Our opinion…GAH, splat.

  34. B. Stover
    1:56 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Wolfie: It’s missing two commas and a colon.

    Wife-beaters are gross.
    Cherokee is coming home tonight! Woooooo!

    A few days ago Rose mentioned frizzy hair. Two or maybe even three years ago (gasp!) I posted about the miracle products from Living Proof. At that time they didn’t have many products and they had to be ordered online.

    A lot has changed since then. There are lots more products and they are sold at Sephora. Best of all, Jennifer Anniston is now a co-owner of the company.

  40. Wookie's dad
    3:46 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Macy’s mom. This is Wookie’s dad here and I can absolutely assure you that the comment about speedos was not addressed to me.

  41. Gus & BooBear
    4:05 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Wookie’s Dad, is that because you looked great in your speedo or because you wouldn’t be caught in one??

  42. Herd of Hounds
    4:11 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Hope everyone has been getting their passports fixed up. We have but mom found out that her summer plans have changed a little.
    Beginning next week she will be getting chemo therapy. That is all she knows right now. If anyone has summer travel plans for such exotic destinations as: Knoxville, TN, Nashville, TN, Chattanooga, TN or Hotlanta, GA (I75, I24, a bit of I40) let us know and the HOH will meet ya’ll and stomp…er stamp a passport.
    We will let ya’ll know how mom does after this starts.

  43. Princess Sam
    4:16 pm on June 14th, 2013

    HOH, if we could, we’d come straight to your house to meet the hounds and the peck of parrots. No big travel this summer.

  44. Herd of Hounds
    4:17 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Sam, the HOH would recognize you for the princess you are!

  45. Barb & Maggie
    4:25 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Doncha wonder how the term wife beater got started? Also, isn’t the guy in that pic wearing a doorag?

  46. Princess Sam
    4:36 pm on June 14th, 2013

    I would hope the HOH wouldn’t think I was a squeaky toy.

  47. Herd of Hounds
    4:38 pm on June 14th, 2013

    B&M: He is wearing a bandana. A doorag is frequently a solid color and a more polyesther like fabric.(Mom spent [hard] time teaching in inner cit schools!)

  48. Barb & Maggie
    4:41 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Dawson, When are you coming over to buy your new bike? If you tell Josh you are a Plunderer, he will give you a deep discount!

  49. Tupper and Gilly
    5:06 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Sharon – oh no! Any idea of how long a course of chemo you will have to endure?

    Macy – just sos you know: we DID get your jest about prickling thumbs. We just didn’t see it until much later. And it made us laugh, but you are giving poor Belle a complex.

    YSAS has landed….and been handed off to Melanie. He is such a good boy.

    We are probably signing off for the day. Leaving at 5 tomorrow for the big Shew in Boston. The van is gassed up and packed. Now it’s time to get clothes selected (note to self – NOT the line green lame’) and ironed, do dinner and a shower and get to bed.

    So – an early good night to all and have fun shopping at the boutique tomorrow. Hope there is some stuff left by the time I get home.

  50. Barb & Maggie
    5:13 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Sharon, So sorry to hear about the chemo. It is no fun, but not as difficult as it was years ago. They have pills to help with the nausea now days.

    Amalia, Good luck tomorrow. Did the Storyteller decide to go and do the prayer?

  51. B. Stover
    5:25 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Sharon: We’ll be thinking of you.

  52. Wookie's dad
    5:27 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Gus & Boo Bear — definitely the latter, that I would not wear a speedo in public or for that matter in private.

  53. O'Howlers
    5:45 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Sharon, hope the chemo goes o.k.
    Dima’s pal Drew is coming over here this evening, so we probably won’t be posting tonight.
    The ‘rents are going to the funeral for Jaxon tomorrow. They are in dread. And it is to be an open casket. Mom thinks she will be spending the entire weekend crying.

    5:58 pm on June 14th, 2013

    HOH: I am glad there is so many of youse to take good care of your mom in the weeks ahead. I will be in Kentucky in the fall and plan to see a Plunderer in Indiana and will definitely see if we can meet in Tennessee with passbook in hand.

  55. Wose

    Before we go, check out these great Members of the Nation Within, enjoying carrides.

  57. Siber-H
    6:41 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Mom here because Siber-H is higher than a kite, but doing well.

    Howlers, Good to hear Charokee is home by now.

    Sharon. We will be thinking of you and as Barb says, chemo isn’t like it used to be. The man that lives across the street from us had a lot of chemo sessions and he drove himself to every one.
    I offered to help him but he said he was fine driving.

  58. Wose
    6:54 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Siber’s Mom: Glad to hear Siber-H is doing well. Any cavities? : )

    Spent the last night of our trip to the Cape in Eastern CT at a b&B that is both dog-friendly and haunted. It’s yard abuts a colonial-era graveyard that is completely overrun with weeds. The manager had a dog that became Yuji’s best friend immediately.

  63. Herd of Hounds
    7:59 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Siber: Glad you are home, even if you can’t walk a straight line yet (no driving).

    T&G: As a Hollywood guy of the 50’s said, “Have a really big shoe”.

    OH: Will keep ya’ll in our thoughts and prayers.

    8:43 pm on June 14th, 2013

    I want to know why Sharon HOH gets to post about sho(e)s and the rest of us get moderated when we do? What’s up with that?
    She must have a special dispensation from Mike B. Hope that also helps with the Chemo. Quick, Sharon. Eat all the food you love right now. Sniff. Sometimes it doesn’t taste so good for a while.

    I like to call Siber-H “Mr.Husky” but no one else calls him that. Well, Alice and Abbie do too. snicker.

    Mr.Staff and I went to a Monroe Crossing bluegrass concert last night. Only an hour away! They played this song and I thought of all the Plunderers who have needed it.


  68. Mollypop's Mom

    “get my shoes”

  69. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:49 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Staff!….My guess is she had “shoes” in quotes…heh!

  70. Mollypop's Mom
    8:49 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Staff – I thought Sharon got away with that because it was in quotes. I tested it and I’m in moderation.

  71. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:50 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Staff!….I guessed about how Sharon was able to post s-h-o-es and it was not correct. So I am being moderated at 8:49pm…snort!

  72. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:51 pm on June 14th, 2013

    8:55 pm on June 14th, 2013

    It is me. I have returned. I’m a little out of it.

    Hey Staff, We like the song and that bluegrass group. They are good.
    I think it is very nice that you call me Mr. Husky.

    Sharon should try the s-h-o-e word again to see if it goes through for her.

  75. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:01 pm on June 14th, 2013

    SiberH!…Welcome back to reality pal!…heh!snort!… Just in time for the baseball game too!….Wooooo!

  80. Macy
    9:34 pm on June 14th, 2013

    I called you Mr. Husky from the beginning of when I met you, thankyouverymuch!

    Sharon, so sorry to hear about the chemo. Have you known about it long? We will be here (sort of) every step of the way.

    That picture above is what mom considers a doorag, motorcycle style. It is what all the bikers at the Austin hotel were wearing.

  81. Macy

  84. Siber-H
    9:39 pm on June 14th, 2013

    I just used that word in a sentence and it is being moderated.

    Rio, I am watching the game.

  85. Staff
    9:40 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Dawson and the Turtleman sent me this photo the other day but I have been under the weather so didn’t see it till just now. They are working on a Plunderer passport the same size as a regular passport.
    This is a prototype.
    He is putting in 24 pages for stamps etc.

    Gosh we are excited!

  86. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:42 pm on June 14th, 2013

    MollysMom!…Another theory, and I have not tested it yet. Singular s-h-o-e in quotes seems acceptable….sniff!

  87. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:44 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Staff!…OH My Dawg!…snort!…Those passports are Perfect! I wish I had one…sniff!…Are you guys going to put some up on the Boutique for sale???…heh!

  88. Staff
    9:46 pm on June 14th, 2013

    They are not ready for the boutique, but something else he made is. I think you will like them. heh heh heh.

  89. Macy
    9:49 pm on June 14th, 2013

    I would buy one of those, whether from the turtleman or the boutique, although I am unlikely to get many stamps. I just want one because they are cool.

    On the way home mom passed fields of beyootiful sunflowers, but they almost all turned their backs on her.

  90. Herd of Hounds
    9:52 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Staff, really like the prototype.
    MPM, Rio, Siber, What can we say???? Most anything, apparently.
    Long day here so, nighty night.

  91. Macy
    9:54 pm on June 14th, 2013

    Can Turtleman make them say Plunderers or something like that? Maybe Republic of Stovernia?

  92. Riö - The Evil Pug

    *********** ANNOUNCEMENT! ************

    Terry’s photo just begs to be made into a horror story. In case there is any doubt, that is a compliment. I like horror stories….good ones.

    Dawson and I will be brainstorming on the words of this passport. All of your requests will be considered. Heh. I love the Stovernia idea and I am quite sure it will say Plunderer’s Passport. Or Plunder Passport. We will think on it.

    Meanwhile check the Boutique tomorrow for another example, although larger, of the Turtlemans work.

    That is a prototype. The dogs on the front will be printed on. Yes, it should say “Plunderers Passport”, not just “Passport”. I am going to make this a team effort so I will yikes!Bat!

    Yes, they will be for sale if not in time for the Boutique, then afterwards for a donation to Snowhook Kennels of $10.00.

    Zzzzzzzzz . . Oh, what? Oh . Cough. .cough . . Hey youse guyes!

    Great day. YSAS didn’t tell me THE WHOLE STORY of his time at oral surgery. Turns out they gave him shots of novacane, and then said, “We’ll be back when that takes affect.” As they were walking out the door, YSAS’s heart rate zoomed and he lost his breath, but managed to lean out of the chair and mumble something before he passes out completely. Next thing he remembers was being upside down and getting oxygen.

    He says he still doesn’t feel right.

    At 11 am tomorrow I meet my niece, some of the bridesmaids,a nd her other Godmother at the salon. We will be getting our hairstyled and make up put on. They best not get near me with any twisers or wax. I just might have to put my foot down on a couple of them.

    Weddings at four. I have to figure out how not to get Newfed between 12:30 and 3.

    Hope you hear good news on the job, Macy’s Dad.
    Herd of Hounds, take good care of your mom. (I knew she had to be a teacher at some point)
    O’Howlers . . My heart hurts.
    Good night all.

    Suddenly a bat was flying from wall to wall in the living room. I ran and opened the front door and then the porch door. A large beetle sized something (the light was off) flew in the front door and landed on my arm. I let out a terrified yell, then ran out the front door and around to the back door and came inside. I could see the bat still going from one side of the room to the other, back and forth and back again.
    Dad: (taking headphones off) Did you say something?
    Me: (from way across the room, yelling) Bat!
    Dad: What?
    Me: (Yelling louder) Bat! B! A! T!
    Dad: Oh, there’s a bat in the house? Well, open the door and let him out!
    Me: The door is open! ( I went through Dad’s bedroom from the rear entrance to shut the door to the living room and the bat wasn’t flying anymore. But I could hear a clicking or tsk-ing like noise. I spotted the bat up in the corner of the living room by the ceiling. Looked like he was staying awhile.
    Me: He’s not leaving! I’m going to bed! (Upstairs, no bats).
    Dad: What time is it?
    Me: Bedtime!
    Dad: (Pushing the button on his talking watch) It’s only 9:51!
    Me: I don’t care, I’m not staying down here!
    Dad: Okay, well lock the doors.
    Me: But how will the bat get out?
    Dad: He’ll leave in the morning. What’s he going to do?
    Me: He’s going to bite you and give you rabies! (Quickly locking the door) Whatever! (Running upstairs)
    I will have nightmares tonight.

    Oh NO! Dawson has a bat. I am supposed to go there this coming Wednesday. I sure hope she has gotten rid of the bat by the time I get there.

    Dad: What?
    Me: (Yelling louder) Bat! B! A! T!

    Good news: I got my book.

    Bad news: The bat is not where I left him.

    I see Dad decided not to stick around in the living room for all his bravado. He is in the bathroom getting ready for bed.

    Melanie: Hope all goes smoothly for you tomorrow. Have fun!

    Rio: That is too bad the sunflower got dug out. I don’t understand why she would do that.

    Big day tomorrow.
    I’m getting up early and getting out of Bat House. Going for a long bike ride and I better not get a carpola flat tire.

    G’night all and good morning to Cricket and Liz.
