“So,” says Admin, “SCENTS AND SENSIBILITY is less than a week away. Number eight in the Chet and Bernie series.”

“True,” Spence says. “But they can be read in any order.”

“Yeah? 5, 1, 6, 4, 8, 3, 2, 7, for example?”

“I actually think that would work nicely.”

“Should you be the judge of that?”

“As opposed to … ?”

    Good morning, everyone! Wowser, Bowser! WE think our evening reading will put us just about bookless for SAS…perfect! Mom chortles sooooo much when reading to us. We snuffle and snort! Less than a week (that is 1, right?)
    Have a warm and wonderful Wednesday.

    Good morning all. I see that Spence and Admin. are sparing again. They compliment each other so well, in an adversarial sense.

    One week, we can’t wait.

    Walkies are done, lunch is prepared, now it is off to the office.

    Morning all.
    We are off to the v e t with Callie. Something is just not right with our big, furry sugar-lump. All paws crossed.

    Good Morning All–Trying to function on 4 hours’ sleep (don’t ask) but able to send strong prayers for Callie. I hope it was just too much ch*k*n.
    Have a wonderful day, all.

    Kitty prayers for Callie from Texas. She is such a beautiful girl.
    Mom had to do a doggie semi-rescue this morning. Her neighbor 2 doors down has a small, toy dog of some kind that they keep leashed to a dog kennel in front of the garage. It is a covered area but the leash is only about 30 inches long. She has 2 puppies that are now probably about 3 months olds. At one time she got loose and had a little fun (heh!) Mom always worries about these 3 dogs and their life. This morning, little mama dog had dragged the kennel to the street and she was standing there with her puppies just barking up a storm in the hot sun (the low last night was in the 80’s and it is supposed to get to the middle 90’s today.) So Mom stopped and dragged the kennel back into the shade, and of course, found that no water had been left for them. Back home she went to get a couple of bowls and some bottled water (because she didn’t know where to fill the bowls up at their house). Those poor babies were so thirsty.
    Mom would love to report this as animal abuse, but they are fed on a regular basis and she thinks it is more a case of neglect or stupidity, than cruelty. If her yard was fenced, she would offer to take those babies. It would be kinder to just let the mama dog run loose like the puppies do. She knows her home and how to get back there. And looking at the puppies this morning, Mom is sure they haven’t ever had a bath or any kind of vet care.
    Stressful day!!

    Thanks for the pawrayers everyone.
    Callie is kinda sick. The vet thinks she has a kidney infection, but it could also be the start of a kidney shut down. They have treated her for infection and said she should be feeling better by tonight. So far she is still refusing all food- even her beloved pasta.
    They did blood work and other lab work, and we hope to know more tomorrow morning.
    Meanwhile, the AC is on full blast for her and she is napping comfortably. Gramp is staying nearby, as Callie prefers
    Watching and worrying – this is the hard part.

    Hoping for the best for Callie.

    Boobear, Your mom has a kind heart. I do not have such kind words for your neighbors, however.

    Best wishes to Callie and hoping for better days soon.
    A shoutout to Bluecat’s and HOH’s moms!
    Gloomy day here. Poor Fairbanks hit 95 a couple of days ago. Now it is cooler but smokey. Over 3 million acres have burned in the state.

    Gramps: Lay your head and rest your worries.

    Callie: Please do the same. There is enough pillow to go around.

    We here at the kennel are praying for you there.

    Callie and Gramps giving love back and forth to their best friend. I’m hoping Callie wakes up tomorrow and demands steak.
    Many prayers being sent.

    BooBear: Did you say a low of 80 degrees! That neighbor is not good to his little doggies. That is very hot weather and no water to boot? Your mum is an angel.

    I am getting a new dishwasher. The old one is antique. The guy who will install it is here now.

    Hobbit, we are used to California fires but my goodness 3,000,000 acres ,my lord. We are just so thankful that Snowhook was spared. We will see you in March. I’m putting the treat money away so we can be there.

    Same here Rio. Should be mid 80s. Today high of 66. Not liking this. They are saying cold summer is due to El Nino effect, whatever that means.

    Just watched Still Alice. A little depressing but excellent acting on the part of Julianne Moore.

    Staff, love your cartoon! The girls here are being jerks!

  34. Staff
    10:07 pm on July 8th, 2015

    HOH, I am sorry about your dog jerkies. At my house we are helping the young visitor do a quilt with triangles and we are being picky about seam allowances and ironing. However I am helping by doing the ripping.

    Barb, my garden is coming back much better than I feared. My beans look like they are going to be a bumper crop. (WHy bumpers I wonder?) The onions are half and half which is better than I expected. The lettuce even came back. The beets are totaled but some of that is those pesky goldfinches. They love beet greens darn it. I thinned out the carrots today and I might have some good ones of those also.

    Happy sigh.
    One tomato plant has two baby tomatoes on it and the rest are not doing much.
    I feel better than I thought I would about the garden. I have even started weeding it a little bit.

    Mom is making us head for bed 🙁 Snowhook, we love you and are glad y’all were spared. Callie, hope and pawray good for you and gramps.

    Staff!…My sad little garden looks healthier, but the only fruit so far has been 2 bell peppers…sniff!…Which someone already chopped up and cooked into a pasta sauce…grunt!…No tomatoes even thought there are tons of blooms and the plants are healthy and strong…grump!

    Pickles!…The pickles are growing like gang-bangers…yeep!…But they are not ready to produce yet…snort!

    Staff – “bumper” used to refer to tankards of beer filled to brimming, and “bumped” together in a toast. Bumper came to mean anything that was full and abundant, including “bumper crowds” on Market Day, or bumper crops.

    11:00 pm on July 8th, 2015

    Game!…Well it is 9:00pm here and bottom of the 1st inning…grunt!….Interesting temperatures. 58 degrees here and 68 in Fairbanks…snort!…I am totally dis-combobbled this summer..sniff!

    Helping!…I am doing my very best to help the pickles along. I piss on that whole line of guys every morning…heh!heh!…They respond by leaning away towards the fence and strings up the bigger fence my friend put up…snort!…I know I am helping this whole “Go Towards The Fence” operation…chuffle!

  41. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:52 pm on July 8th, 2015
