    Good morning, everyone! Another interesting book store :) How does TM find these?
    Have a wild and wooly Wednesday, all!

    Good morning HOH and everyone. Still rainy here but the violent winds did not happen, so we feel lucky.

    Couldn’t sleep so got up and processed some green beans and tomatoes for the freezer, did a load of wash and stained some wood trim for the redone bathroom. Definitely will need a nap today!

    Tell Barb that she has been a busy beaver! We had breakfast so don’t care what else happens, unless treats are involved.

    On the home front, things are going well. The kids are still sober, and Cody leaves for a therapeudic rehab tomorrow. It only took five months to navigate the insurance maze. Yeep! Jace’s development is now normal, and we should have him back next month.

    Once we get Chad into rehab, then mom can breathe easy!

    The name Wellesley is familiar for some reason (other than the Duke of Wellington).

    Good morning all.

    I read it to, Wose. Very sweet! (Whispering – I think mom is in love with Harris.)

    Where is that edit button when we need it? I wonder if Mr. Baker has any idea the difficulty of typing on a ipaw with big furry paws?

    Good morning Wose, Wolfie, HOH, B and M, and B. Stover–Took a walk in the dark this a.m. to prepare for my LONG day and saw a bunny! This is the first one on the local HS campus since school started, so I take it as a good sign. Still no rain here but a lot of moisture ion the air which make the hot days difficult.
    Wolfie–This sounds like good news all around, so prayers and paws crossed for you all from CA.
    B and M–Just yikes! (And well done)
    Wose–Be well and have a wonderful day.
    HOH–Sounds like y’all are already having a good one. Take care of your Mom like the good good dogs you are.
    Have a great day everyone.

    BSD–Just read your post from yesterday about the shelter for older dogs in need. My own shelter does some of this, but it’s always good to know about others. Can you provide more information? Thanks.

  12. Barb & Maggie
    10:12 am on September 10th, 2014

    Wose, Hope you are feeling chipper today. And Wolfie, good to hear from you. Paws and fingers crossed for continued sobriety.

    Mattie and the rest of us sleep a lot, but we keep up.

  14. Herd of Hounds,

    Zoe, love the foto of Mattie “guarding” the fireplace kats.

    Rebecca!…I can totally vouch for the fact that Rebecca works her butt off at the kennel!…snort!…No facebookie time for her because she is constantly feeding, cleaning, taking someone to the V-E-T-S and petting her Giant…snorkel!

    Rain, rain and more rain here.

    11:44 am on September 10th, 2014

    That Damn Pixie is sniffing and melting at the Giant’s post last night. That is all well and good, but where is the gratitude for my work? I appointed myself to be the Sparkler in Charge, but there is no thank you for me. And let’s not forget the Theive’s efforts in keeping tha Damn Pixie extra busy. Where is their thank you, I ask youse?

  21. Wose- the small and meek
    11:58 am on September 10th, 2014

    Wolfie, I am glad to hear positive news at your home. Good thoughts coming
    your ways always.

    Zoe, Love the picture of Mattie guarding the hearth!

  22. Wose- the small and meek
    12:03 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Belle Starr, I appreciate all the sparkly things that you do, and the Thieves too!

    I under appreciated here too. We should run away. That will fix everybody.
    Let’s run away together. I have my long tree branch, and my red bandana at the ready.

    12:49 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Awwww AJ. Great post sir, You are right about your wife. We all know how important she is. To you, and to us.

    Didn’t one of Peter’s kids go to Wellesley?

    I can’t run away. Staff says may not leave the house. The house has been horrible lately. This guy keeps coming in and bringing stuff in and then banging around and making noises like thunder. And Staff is happy about it. GAH.

    AbbietheKitty is MIA and even I am hiding out. Where is the ASPCK* when you need them????

    12:53 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Got up early (for me). Moved furniture to the other side of the quilt room (The side with the finished cabinets. Made french toast for breakfast with BACON. Yum. Used the maple syrup we bought in Massachusetts this spring with Golinka and the Storyteller, Dawson, Barb, Sharon and Judy! A taste of spring. :-)

    Then moved some more furniture and did some laundry and now we (mr.Staff and I ) are going out to pick apples.
    Whoo HOooo

    oh, I read the blog too.

    And there are still hummers at the feeders this A.M. Thank Dog.

    1:06 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Spence: What are the fines for wrong answers? Just curious.

    Rebecca: Like AJ, we appreciate your hard work and loving with the Snowhook doggies. AJ’s too, goes without saying.

    Zoe: Mattie’s doing a great job holding the floor down!

    Barb&Maggie: Gee, when I can’t sleep I read a few pages or check the blog. I do not stain the trim.

    Have a wishful Wednesday. My wish is that my yard was as neat as BooBear’s. I will try to channel some of B&M’s energy to make it so.

  32. Barb & Maggie
    1:07 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Wose, you are never under appreciated on this here blog.

  33. Herd of Hounds,
    1:16 pm on September 10th, 2014

    BSD: Old Dog Haven has liquid coming out of mom’s eyes and she asked if we would mind more sisters. She would adopt every unwanted dog in the world. We told her to slow down and take things one dog at a time, after 3/4 of the HOH are “rescues”.

  34. Belle Starr
    1:16 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Wose and Wio: I have the perfect hidey-hole. It is Rio’s little cabin in the woods. All runaways on three…!

    1:26 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Oh gosh! Our goldfinch have nested and fledged. Two youngsters were just at the feeder on the front porch looking very olive drab :) Ya gotta love summer! In other breaking news, Mrs. Hummer is still guarding the 2 feeders in the front yard, while the backyard feeder is up for grabs :)

  38. Herd of Hounds,
    1:42 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Grab, you little winged guy, grab…Migration isn’t far away!

  42. BooBear
    2:37 pm on September 10th, 2014

    For those who asked, Mom keeps 5 feeders up during the summer months. She just added 3 more (demoted some hanging plants to the ground) since they drained the 5 in less than a day.

  43. Herd of Hounds,
    2:38 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Oh, goodness, Mr. Goldfinch just stopped by for a nosh. He is so handsome…like a canary in a tux :)

  44. Herd of Hounds,
    2:40 pm on September 10th, 2014

    BooBear, tell your 2 legger that when our mom lived in so Cal, she had to fill her 4 feeders every day! Wowser, more work than kiddos :)

  45. B.Stover
    2:46 pm on September 10th, 2014

    I love goldfinches. “Canary in a tux” is a great description!

    Oh oh! Giggles are catchy….

  49. Herd of Hounds,
    3:07 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Mom is wondering if she makes a vest for Pookey that says “Handicapped dog in training”, could she take her 3 legger anywhere? Think about it! :) (We know our mom is a sick puppy.)

  50. Herd of Hounds,
    3:10 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Envision the vest on this:

    Fun, huh?

    3:44 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Bwack! Hi Fern! (giggling)

    I just remembered! Yesterday when I was puttering around the garden to see what effects the slight frost had, and to hoe a little, I noticed 3 long chile peppers that I swear were not there the day before (they must’ve been – they do not grow that long overnight), and made note to pick them before I went in because it was going to get to 5 below freezing (it did). I forgot! Must go out and see if they survived. I can see the squash that was growing out of the compost pile is history. Hope the ones under the blankets made it. I’m going gardening, giggling.

  57. Herd of Hounds,
    3:52 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Giggly Awesome one, we have a bell pepper masquerading as a chili !

    Know it is a bell as we have gotten others off it this summer :)

  58. Wose- the small and meek
    4:04 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Belle Starr: I am on my way, and will pick Rio and Masquers on the way.

  59. Diane C.
    4:28 pm on September 10th, 2014

    BSD–thank you for the link.
    HOH–I think the vest would look lovely.
    Wose, Wio, Belle Starr–You’d keep in touch if you ran away, right? (I feel the need of some sparkle right now. A.M. class flew by, but the late afternoon one is going to be looooong…)

  60. Billy's Buddy

    4:52 pm on September 10th, 2014

    I LOVE wheel dogs! Thank you, Masquers, Rio, and c.hobbit! That nose is smoochable.

    So much on the blog today. I have been thinking of rejoinders along the way, but the time got away from me.

    Happy to hear from Zoe and Mattie and Wolfie, and everyone else.

    A short runaway time sounds good to me.

    No kill shelters. Our city and area do not have them. There is one 50 miles to the east and 30 miles to the south, and we try to support them as much as we can. There is one 150 miles to the north that we love, love, love. My blind aunt who lives in that city adopted a cat a few years ago from there. The shelter is run by some of my dearest friends. Once a month, one of the Board members would go to my aunt’s house to clip the cat’s nails. When the cat had v-e-t appointments, one of the Board would transport her and my aunt. I bake for their bake sales, make bandanas for their dog walks, and support them as much as I can. I could go on and on about their kindness, but I won’t.

    In my town, however, there is a shelter called Bob’s House for Dogs. It is run by a family plus volunteers. These folks work with the county shelter and take stressed, old, and infirm dogs to live at Bob’s House. No one is euthanized. Rate of adoption is high.

    Whew.

  62. Herd of Hounds,
    5:18 pm on September 10th, 2014

    B’sB (sobbing here) thank you for that news.

  63. Herd of Hounds
    5:35 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Our county shelter is :( But there are a couple of no kills. One is called “Wally’s Friend”. Cannot remember the one north of us but this foto has the magnet they sell to raise funds. Reminds us of OFA/TM.

  67. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:41 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Survey!…snort!…This might be a good time to take an Online Survey…heh!heh!…Which of the following would you rather have during Thanksgiving Holiday to raise money for Snowhook Kennel?…grunt!

    1. A Gobble-A-Lot Holiday Auction
    2. A Happy Gibblets Thanksgiving Merchantile Store
    3. Both

  68. Billy's Buddy
    5:45 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Rio: Well, both would allow for donations of items that would go to the highest bidder AND donations of items with a set price, such as tubs of pretzels.

  69. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:47 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Linda!…We could just open a Tub O’ Pretzels store…heh!heh!

  70. Billy's Buddy
    5:58 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Rio — That is a thought. Another career for moi.

  71. Herd of Hounds
    6:13 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Rio, we have things that could go into either, so our answer is…………….BOTH (maybe, kinda, sorta, if possible?)

  72. O'Howlers
    6:19 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Sniff. No postcard for us.
    BooBear, we got a suspicious-looking email from you. Was your email hacked? Or is it legit?

  73. Mollypop's Mom
    6:21 pm on September 10th, 2014

    I think we should have both. Items that are one-of-a-kind should be in the auction and items in multiples, like pretzels, should go into the Mercantile.

    I received a postcard from Alaska, thank you all, and now I want to be back there.

  74. Barb & Maggie
    6:27 pm on September 10th, 2014

    We vote BOTH.

    Has anyone every used ground chicken ( I know, sorry Fern and the girls with bumble foot)? When at Fresh Market to get some half price chicken breast yesterday, I noticed that they had ground chicken white meat on sale as well. The counter man said to use it like ground beef – in tacos, meat balls, etc. So bought some and tonight am making a meatloaf with 1/2 ground beef, 1/2 ground chicken.

    Diane, are you a Vegan or Vegetarian? Always wanted to be, but have just gone as far as trying to buy humanely raised/antibiotic free.

    Has anyone seen the articles lately about meat animals being raised in the USA, then shipped to China to be butchered, then sent back here for sale? First of all, the stress on the poor animals, then secondly the health inspection practices are much lower in China. Evidently, the companies selling these products only have to say “raised in the US” on the labels.

  75. Herd of Hounds
    6:36 pm on September 10th, 2014

    B&M, Our mom doesn’t eat mammal so that means only poultry or some kind of fish (which she doesn’t like) gets cooked in her house. Interesting, eh?

  76. Herd of Hounds
    6:37 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Mom is mostly vegetarian, check “the Moosewood Cookbooks”.

  77. Mollypop's Mom
    6:44 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Barb, first of all the animals that are sent to China have been butchered here. Not that any of that is a good thing but at least the animals are not being sent over. You never know what’s going to happen in China.

    Bought frozen Alaskan cod from Wegmans a few months ago. Since I have to be gluten-free it seemed like a good choice. Only fish. So I cooked the fish, took two bites and immediately threw up. I looked back on the package into the small print where it first said ingredients: wild caught Alaskan cod but then it said processed in China. I don’t know what they did in their processing but it had to do with gluten. Scary, huh.

  78. Mollypop's Mom
    6:45 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Sorry I meant to say the animals are killed here before they are sent to China to be butchered.

  79. Barb & Maggie
    6:46 pm on September 10th, 2014

    This article said also to stay away from fish from China and Vietnam, due to unsanitary raising conditions. Evidently the tilapia are fed mostly chicken manure.

  80. Billy's Buddy
    6:50 pm on September 10th, 2014

    B&M, I always use ground chicken in chili. Billy’s other buddy has multiple stents placed in various parts of his body (TMI, I know)so I substitute anything I can instead of using red meat. I started with a “white chili” which specifically requires chicken in the recipe, but now use it in all chili and we can’t taste a difference.

  81. Barb & Maggie
    6:53 pm on September 10th, 2014

    OK, well that makes me feel better that at least the animal is not going thru days of stress while being shipped. That does make more sense, but I still will not buy those products.

    We have ordered beef and pork from a local farmer, who take their animals to a local processing place. So they are taken in and killed right away. Still not pleasant, but at least a better alternative.

    MPM, I don’t have the gluten worries that you have. My issues are more to do with humane treatment, avoiding large factory animal confinment, and sanitation.

    Billy’s Buddy, wowser, y’all cook like us with the DDD having had a quadruple by-pass. Still can’t keep that man o’ mine away from reindeer sausage in AK. Go with ground chicken or turkey when possible.

  84. Barb & Maggie
    7:00 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Amalia, Are you talking about the under water photos?

  85. Tupper's Mama
    7:03 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Yup – we saw the teaser, and wanted to let everyone know. Some if those pictures are priceless. But I noticed there weren’t any Sibers. Hmmmm

  86. Herd of Hounds
    7:04 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Amalia, please explain since when I checked the network was on to the next show :(

  87. Mollypop's Mom
    7:09 pm on September 10th, 2014

    But Barb, my gluten issues in the case of the Alaskan wild caught cod is proof that something else happened in the processing in China.

  88. Herd of Hounds
    7:11 pm on September 10th, 2014

    Hey, this kinda looks like a book cover to us!

  89. Tupper's Mama
    7:22 pm on September 10th, 2014

    HOH – there is a photographer who specializes in taking underwater photos of dogs diving to retrieve toys. The dogs are willing participants, and some of the split second shots are a riot. Dogs dive with their eyes, and usually their mouths wide open – the expressions are priceless.
    You can do a search for “underwater dog photos” or check this link:

  91. Barb & Maggie
    7:24 pm on September 10th, 2014

    MPM. So I guess you have to be super careful. What is the answer? Buy only meat that is processed here? BTW, I am not anti Asian, and in no way mean my remarks to be racist.

    HOH – pretty easy to create a link to a youtube video. While the video is on your screen, move your cursor up to the address line at the top. Right click on the line, and select “copy”. Then go back to the blog, and in the comment box, right click and select “paste”. Either that or you can put the cursor in the comment box, and hit “control V”, and that will paste the link in the comment box.

    HOH: That is one of our all-time favorite photos of Riö & friend.
    a true classic.
    All this talk of tainted food coming back to us via China is big-time scary. What in Kat’s name are they doing to our beloved salmon, not to mention other foods, and the bigger question is WHY?
    Auction or mercantile? we say both!

    Tupper’s Mama: Thanks for the info on those Cool Water Dogs.

    HOunds: Please do not feel like a Dummkopf. There are many Techie
    Tricks this Hound has yet to learn (of course, as we all know, having a reliable service provider is helpful)

    O’Howlers: I have it on Good Authority that a Postal Card is winging your way, and wouldn’t be surprised if it will soon be in your paws.

    Hey Gang – HOH has an ipad…we don’t. She is having all kinds of difficulties with it. She needs a tutorial.
    She tells me there is no address bar, and since I don’t have an ipad, I can’t tell her what to click on.

    The answer to that question is $$$. Always.

    We LOVED the video. What a hoot!

    B’s Buddy: Loved Hearing about other Humane Shelters near you. We only wish they all were that way.

    MollyPop’s Mom: We can only Imagine what it is like having to carefully read every package before preparation. And, of course, with Eating Out the danger is intensified.

    BooBear: We have the same question as the O’Howlers…did you send an email our way today?

    Bear, I do well until eating out. For example the dinner I had last week with Tyb and his dad got me glutened. I ordered a gluten-free pizza with olive oil tomatoes and olives. Should not have been a problem. I should have known better because I eat defensively and in this case I didn’t. I didn’t think about what was going to happen to the tomatoes when they were being sliced to go on the pizza.

    HOH: On the bottom of the iPad is a button you need to click. You should then get a screen that includes Safari. (If you don’t then run your finger across the middle to the left or right to change screens.) Press the Safari button and it takes you to the internet. Tap on the address bar and you’ll get a keypad on the screen. Use that to type in the internet address that you want, hit the “go” button and that should take you to the address.

    BSD, We will take you at your word.
    HOH, if you are using the uTube app, just click “share”, then select the little icon at the top right that kind of looks like a >. Then select “copy link”.

    Mr.Staff played me a youtube video of his new favorite band, the Spinney Brothers, playing that song just last week.

    DDD, How come you have C.Hobbits picture as your avatar???? Should we tell Sharon?

    Staff: ha, ha. I hadn’t thought of that. I got home and had received a SDD from Sharon asking me to post the video from DDD. Oh well, I can’t think of everything–I am not sure if I know how to turn off my avatar.

    Staff, wish you would (told him to ask Hobbit as I’m an idiot),
    Hobbit, think the best way to resolve my ipaw issues is to go apple store in the a.m. since “bottom of screen” and “click” have no meaning :) It is all TOUCH! GAH! We feel stoopid!

    Ready to donate…BUT am going to Apple store in the a.m. to find our what things like “button on bottom of screen” and “click” mean, oh wait, also…”address line”…. OKAY so I’m stupid.

    Let’s see….how many Bears would that be?

    MPM, It seems like your problem is far worse than just gluten intolerance. Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease?

    Rio, I vote for two also. Some of us will be moving around thanksgiving time and appreciate a nice long lead time.

    HOH, After you get used to the touch screen you will love it. I know I liked Dawson’s IPad Air immediately. But there is a little learning curve. Lots of time at Mollypop’s Mom was spent asking her questions about the Ipad. She is a pro.

    And we are very sorry to hear about the glutening episodes. Hope you are feeling better now.

    Rio, yes beer has gluten. If you have been drinking, like usual, let’s skip the Slurpie kiss.

    If the Rockies had played baseball all season the way they did while you were in Alaska, they wouldn’t be in last place.
