Public Service Announcement

“Here’s a sad story,” Spence says.

“But it might serve as a useful reminder,” says Admin. “There’s no reason a single dog has to die in a parked car this summer.”

Welcome Luciano della Cane, Mikey (possibly with 2 M’s).

    Hmmm, not going to read it. I’ll just cry.

    Back down the hill today. Not as far as yesterday (thank dog). One of the cars needs an oil change, then we’re going to see Dan (bears or no bears) then actually go out to lunch. Weird . .

    Thinking of you Tenz . .

    Oh, and Terry? One of our Puppy people, she has two of ours, lived on Long Island and totally agrees with your statement on yesterday’s blog. She has now moved to the country and has a pond in her backyard. The dogs are loving it!

    Good Morning All!

    What a sad story, but a good lesson learned comes out of this tragedy.

    Rebecca: Strong prayers here for Tenz. Hope he is back to his old self soon.

    Rio: I’m very concerned for you and your friend with those horrible fires in Colorado. Keep Beau and your friend safe.

    Good morning. A lot of excitement here in Buffalo Niagara. Nik Wallenda will be doing a high-wire walk over Niagara Falls on Saturday. He wanted to do it without a harness! He will have to wear one – imagine if he fell with all the kids watching. They have a rescue plan in case he falls and is dangling from the wire. There’s a zip line next to the cable and rescuers will go out in a basket to get him. Now that would be fun to see instead of someone falling to his death.

    Good morning! Mom had to get up at 3 am and left for her office at 3:30. Somehow that made us all very tired.
    The article says poor Tucker was left in the closed car for 2 hours!!! sheez! Our mom hardly takes us anywhere in the summer because she is afraid she would have to leave us.
    She wants to take one of us on a roadtrip, but she doesn’t think rest stops on the highway let our kind inside. Anyone know?

    Good morning all. We could not read the story either. We are with Melanie, definitely would be tears. Why are there so many idiots out there?

    Got feed back from Sunday showing. Really liked house but need another bedroom, so they may be bringing a contractor over to look at space over garage. Unfinished room over garage is 12 x 23 and is set up to be finished as another room.

    Rio, stay safe. Are the fires close by? Heard that there was a fatality in Co. yesterday.

    I’m not going to read the article because I know what it says, but a public service announcement like that is always a good idea. In Albuquerque it is legal to break the window on a car to rescue a dog on a hot day.

    Fellow Sibers, as long as your mom got in and out of the rest area toilets quickly, the odds are there would be no one around to enforce a no dogs allowed rule. State Highway Patrol cops have got better things to do than worry about a Siber in a restroom. Cops do not like “dogs” calls like this. If there were state employees working at the rest stop, they would have no authority to do anything other than tell you to leave.
    Or, your mom could simply get off the interstate, quickly get on a rural road, and go pee behind a bush or tree. This is usually my mom’s favorite option. This is probably safer than the suspicious characters we have seen at highway rest stops.

    I’m in total agreement with you Steve.

    Steve: We agree with you. There is no excuse for stupidity. None.

    I hope Tenzing is feeling better this morning. Rebecca, please let us know as soon as you hear from the v e t.

    Melanie: Enjoy your lunch with Dan.

    Rio: Stay safe.

    Bear – I got the package that you sent. I thought it would be waiting for me at the post office because I get that ‘delivery exception’ message all the time. I don’t know what it actually means since my packages are always there.

  12. Rose
    11:16 am on June 12th, 2012

    Steve, I agree.

    Maggie is up top, and so are BSD and Masquers!

  13. OleyHowlers
    11:17 am on June 12th, 2012

    Thanks for the advise, Siber. Traveling interstates in the East does not always provide rural backroads like you have in the West. But where there’s a will, there’s a way, right?

    Sending lots and lots of love to Tenzing.

    We do feel for people who are stupid, but we wish there was a test you had to take before being allowed to care for one of our guys. Same thing goes for childcare. Not everyone who is biologically able to have a child is capable of being a parent.

  14. Rose
    11:25 am on June 12th, 2012

    Rio? Are you okay?

    Here is something interesting going on in Buffalo. Finally.

    A giant bee hive was found and instead of killing all the bees they are being moved into this giant hive.

    Howlers – please ask your Mom to check her SDD

    12:10 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, You are right. It can be done, but I know you don’t have all the wide open spaces like we do.

    Rio is not close to the path of any of those wildfires in Colorado. The smoke from them may be another story.

    In one of the states in Germany people are going to have to start taking a test about dogs before they are allowed to care for one. It may be Bavaria, but I am not sure.

  18. OleyHowlers
    12:10 pm on June 12th, 2012

    T&G, checked and responded. Mom is howling.

    12:12 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Siber: How close to you is the fire in New Mexico?
    I’m worried about Rio, Beau and their family…wish he would report in this morning.
    (Just saw your last post, Siber. Thank you)

  20. OleyHowlers
    12:12 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Germany is such a dog-friendly place, at least in Bavaria. Everyone takes their dogs into the restaurants, and they just lie under the table. It is children that they seem to look down on at the restaurants.

  21. B.Stover
    12:15 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Thank you for that link Mollypop’s Mom. It’s fascinating. I didn’t know that a red dot on a bee indicates “colony collapse disorder” or that bees communicate by “fanning.” I’m glad they were able to save the colony.

  22. Barb & Maggie
    12:21 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Nice to read the bee story with a happy ending. There has been such a problem with hive die-off in the last few years that we are happy that more bees were not put to their death in the name of “progress”.

    Is there a link to the paper where Amalia made the front page with her bear? We are so proud of our fellow Plunderer!

  23. Siber-H
    12:28 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Masquers, Thanks for asking. The NM fires are a long ways away from me. We are not having any smoke here from them either. lol
    I would be complaining if we were.

  24. Tupper and Gilly
    12:48 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Barb – the newspaper link is
    http://www.gazettenet.com/2012/06/11/artists039-creations-thrill-hundreds-as-bear-fest-opens-in-easthampton

    The web stories are sometimes hard to navigate, not sure which picture will come up when you go there, but the web story has about 10 photos that you can scroll thru.

    (thanks for asking – said with a modest blush)

    Rebecca — strong prayers for Tenzing from his friends in Chevy Chase.
    Sad story abuot Tucker. While I like to go everywhere with mom and dad, I do understand that may not be good for me during the heat of summer. That is why I insist they stay at home as much as possible. Other times of the year though, when they go, I go (at least most of the time).
    Rio, Beau and Friend — PA books are on their way; mailed yesterday.

    Fire!…We here do not see any fire, but there is an awful lot of smoke which is playing havoc with our allergies…wheeze!…All three of us have constant runny noses…sniffle!

  30. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:18 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Bears!…There was a Bear with a Beehive on its head at the festival…heh!

    T&G: Loved the bears, most especially the Harvest Bear!!

  34. Tupper and Gilly
    2:26 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Thanks Rose – some of the bears are truly fantastic!

    Hey everyone – remember last night when Mama was going crazy cuz her virtual shopping cart got tipped over. Well, the bead store FIXED it! They swept up every last little bead, and sparkly thing, and finding and put them all back neatly in her cart. This store is the BEST! And their Customer Service ROCKS!

  35. Tupper and Gilly
    2:31 pm on June 12th, 2012

    And now Mama has to get back to work on the publicity planning for a certain Best Damn Handler’s Wife’s Big Star Turn – so far the event is listed on 4 local tv stations, and two newspapers. The posters will soon be up at the libraries, pet shops and grooming places.

    Gee – wonder if we will get anyone to come? tee hee…..

  36. Rose
    2:38 pm on June 12th, 2012

    T&G: With your mum’s help, A Star Is Born! Rebecca will need to take good care of her writing hand…something tells me lots of autographs are in her future.

    Glad the store was able to restore your mum’s shopping cart.

  37. Barb & Maggie
    2:51 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Thanks Amalia, we were able to see several bears. Still like yours the best but we may be a little biased. The bear with the bee hive on his head is neat too.

    Wonder how the visit went with Dan today. Hopefully there wer no bears present for that!

  38. Rose
    3:16 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Lightning bolts this Friday…Hope they can put out the fire before it spreads in the Hudson Valley (!)

  39. Melanie
    3:23 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Well, guys . . I’m back and a bit depressed. Dan looks good but he is in pain. The doctor was going to call the rehab place about the pain yesterday. Did she call? Did they not get the call? Who knows because the doctor’s office hung up on Zoe.

    He is also refusing one of the medications he must be on. I’m so tired. Zoe is tired. Been a long two days and we really didn’t need this.

    sigh. So I’ll check back later. I’m crawling under the quilt.

  40. Masquers
    3:37 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Rose: We three will be there to pamper you after the LBs on Friday.

    T&G: Your mama is the best organizer. This event is going to be a huge success. Thank you Royal Mum and the Storyteller for all you do for us. And, thanks for the link to your Harvest Bear. I don’t see any others which even compare. It is the best of all the exhibits.
    Mollys Mom: That is some beehive! This spring we have seen bees buzzing around. A good sign.
    Melanie: I am so sorry to hear of the difficulties with Dan’s medication. The doctor’s office hanging up on Zoe is inexcusable!

  41. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:40 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Marketing!…Stinky Mama is a marketing genius…heh!…Soon she will have Rebecca speaking in a big stadium somewhere. Is Fenway Park available??..chorkel!…I wonder hom many people Rebecca can speak publicly to without fainting….sniff!…Guess we will find out soon!…heh!

  42. Barb & Maggie
    3:43 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Sorry to hear about Dan’s pain. That is terrible about the doctor’s office hanging up on Zoe. Was it an accident that she just got disconnected or did they actually hang up on her? Rose is right, that would be inescusable.

    Any updates on Tenz?

    We will be leaving shortly, so there can be a showing. Couple of last minute things to do first. Later.

  43. Rose
    3:55 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Masquers, the Smoochers pampering is very much appreciated.

    Melanie, hope things get better soon. Snuggle under the quilt and rest.

  44. BearSpiritDog
    4:19 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: The new billboard is certainly generating a lot of interest in your farm. Good luck!

    Linda: Your fabulous pretzels have arrived. They have also been sampled! We feel sorry for anyone who missed out on this yummy treat.

    MollyPop’s Mom: Thanks for letting us know your package (finally) arrived.
    In celebration of its arrival we bought a steak.

    Waiting to hear about Tenz.

  45. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:49 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Gah!…My friend just sent me a text on my little Go-Phone…wheeze!…She said someone was waving Rockies tickets in her face and saying they were free for tonights game!….Woooo!…Only she said she couldn’t go because her mother can hardly move so she needs to go home and make supper for everyone and then water the garden…grump!

  46. Masquers
    4:57 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Rio: Let’s hope something even more exciting than free tickets to the Rockies game is in your friend’s future.

  47. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:13 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Maskers!…Like what?…sniff!…Did I mention that someone got those stoopid Kat Koasters in the mail the other day?…grunt! …Well, she did.

  48. OleyHowlers
    5:23 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Melanie, we are also very sorry to hear about Dan’s pain and your depressing couple of days. Stay under the quilt with Tenzing until you feel re-energized.
    Rio? Kat Koasters? Whats up with that?
    We are putting Sasha under the quilt with youse guys. Sorry…her yapping is going to make you all lose sleep. We haven’t gotten any sleep in days.

  49. Barb & Maggie
    5:45 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Bear, Yes thanks, we are hopeful here. More activity is a good thing.

    We ordered some pretzels too, but were late doing so. Can’t wait to sample them since everyone has been raving about them.

    Bear, Any good movies to recommend? The Margin Call was well acted, but not anything we would want to watch again. Kevin Spacey was excellent as usual. Wonder if Rio’s friend has seen that movie.

    Rio, I bet your friend is really pi**ed since her mother would not have a sore back if she waited like she was supposed to for help with the carpet cleaning. Does she like to play the martyr?

  50. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:55 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Barb!…I don’t think my friend can get much more pissed-off than she has been for the last, oh lets see, 5 days now…grunt!

  51. Melanie
    6:11 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Whew, pissed off friends, house showings, lightening bolts. Something’s always going on at Chet’s Blog.

    Hmm, The Doc called because the Rehab place called her. Zoe happened to mentioned getting hung up on. Doctor was not pleased.

    Dan’s back on a medication he decided he didn’t need. And the doc is coming to visit him on Saturday. A house call! Unless the pain gets worse then she’ll be there sooner.

    The Qulit is comfy. I had comfort food. Cheesy mashed potatoes for dinner.

  52. Rose
    6:12 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Rio: Parents need to listen to their children every once in a while. If your friend’s mother would have listened, and not been so stubborn, she would not be in this position, and your friend could have some fun tonight. I hope things start looking better for your friend soon!

  53. Masquers
    6:15 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Sorry to hear about Dan Melanie. Hope they keep him on the correct medication.

    Little Sam – small world. Today I spoke with a friend who just returned from a trip to the Falls. Seeing it really impressed on her the power of Mother Nature and that we need to be careful how we treat our environment. Will you watch on Saturday?

    Melanie – holding all of you in thought.

    Rose – will be thinking of you Friday.

    Rio’s Friend – so sorry about the goofiness around you.

  58. Princess Sam
    8:19 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Bluecat, I want to watch the Falls walk but there’s so much going on at my house this weekend, I just don’t know. There will be a million replays.

    Fainting! You’re not helping, Rio. Snort!

    The vet kept Tenzing all day. AJ is just picking him up now. He is still waiting to see Tenz. I see canned good in his future—tenzing’s not AJs.

    B&M — Mom and dad don’t go to a whole lot of movies, but they did see one recently that they just loved and highly recommend: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. It has a great cast, including Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson and Bill Nighy, and the lead actor from Slumlord Millionnaire. They said it was heartwarming, funny, poignant and all that good stuff, and you come out feeling really good at the end, which is kind of rare these days. Wookie

  61. Wookie of Chevy Chase

    Oops, that was supposed to be Slumdog Millionnaire in the preceding post. Wookie

    SlumLord!…heh!snort!heh!…I am going to try and remember the name of that Hotel movie so we can order it on Netfleas…snort!

    Game!…We just finished our walks in the smoke and ….wheeze!….she popped some popcorn. Now we are downstairs where we can breath watching the game!….Woooo!…Its only the second inning so we have not missed much at all….chuffle!…And the Rockies are ahead for a change…snorkel!

  63. Tupper and Gilly
    9:23 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Ok – we know Mama is taking a breath now – she has cupcakes in the oven! Yippee – we always manage to snag a bite or two when we put on the “poor, starvng Corgi” faces.

    Bella – prayers were sent up for Tenzing tonight. Dad used a beautiful and elegant blue feather that we recieved as a gift from a special friend- so we know those prayers went up with something extra.

    Rio – Mama wants to know when you and your friend are arriving. She may not be painting the halls like Rebecca, but we think you will be comfortable.

  64. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:23 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Tippit!…My friend says she needs to find a box to take to the busy-place so she can pack up all her personal stuff…sniff!…When she does stuff like that you never know what will happen or how quick…snort!…Keep our room open and don’t rent it out to any way-ward Jazz Kats…snuffle!

  66. Snowhook Bella
    9:29 pm on June 12th, 2012

    T&G: I would help you paint while I’m visiting, but I think my dance card is already filled.

    Masquers, that video was hysterical! We showed Mom and Pop andthey watched it over and over.
    Wookie, we thought that movie looked good. Now if only we can remember to look for it later.

  73. Barb & Maggie
    10:28 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Wookie, Thank you for the recommendation on that movie. You are the second one that said Marigold Hotel is a must see. We will put it on our list. I think the young actor from India is named Dev Patel. Frieda Pinto was the female lead.

  74. BearSpiritDog
    10:33 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: Happy to see Wookie came up with the name of a good movie. Nothing we’ve seen lately merits recommendation. I agree with you about Margin Call. Good but, as you say, not a memorable film. The Artist is next in our Netflix queue, but won’t be released for a week or so. Meanwhile its’ a dry spell.

    Rio: When you first mentioned your friend taking a box to the Busy Place it sounded ominous. But then remembered it had something to do with her vacation being cancelled in the first place. Boxes were definitely involved.

    Time to grab something to eat – then off to read before bedtime – Bear

  75. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:37 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Wha!?….What the heck is Bear talking about?…snort!….Boxes were definitely involved?…heh!…That guy needs a snack or sumthing.

    Helton!….Just hit a Home-Run!….Woooooooooo!

  76. Basil and Sage
    10:38 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Hey Rio – if WE are willing to live with a Pug, we think you should learn a little politically correct tolerance. sniff….

    Barb – are you getting any vibes about how the showing went?

  77. Snowhook Bella
    10:43 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Rio: your friend could earn her keep by handling for the team. The benefits are non existence and we pay in all the dog fur a a pug could want.

  78. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:47 pm on June 12th, 2012

    Safe trip home Bella

    Rio – didn’t you see that youtube about the Kats. What makes you think we can’t open closet doors?
    Especially in the middle of the night
    When you are all curled up sound asleep
    In your nice soft bed, thinking that all your worries are behind you.
    And then the closet door slowwwwwlllyyy creeeeeaaaks open
    And a paw with a claw creeps out, slowly, silently, it edges nearer and nearer to the snoring little Pug
    and then

    WHAMMO!

    And we ain’t talkin’ grand slam home run…..giggle….

    The Kats are making mom laugh! Which she needs because she took our Kat Claudie to the vet today for some “dental work” (extractions) and he won’t be home until Thursday. They found out that he is diabetic, and they want to run some glucose curves on him. They’ll start him on insulin tomorrow morning and he should be able to have surgery in a month.

    Which reminds me, how is Tenzing?

    awww Wolfie. Sorry to hear about the kitty. But the good news is that the diabetes was caught before he got really sick. Just talked to a friend yesterday who came within hours of losing one of her office cats to diabetes. She knew something was wrong, but the boss didn’t think so until it was almost too late. Result – multi thousand dollar vet bill when it could have been less and the ca’t could have been less sick a long time ago.
    Too many times cats don’t let you know they are sick until too late. Glad you caught this one.

    Update on Tenzing: He is home with five less teeth that he began with yesterday morning. I’ve been reading through the many pages of instructions the vet sent home since I arrived. No more food items made with grain products—this was a great disappointment to Tenzing who is usually the recipient of AJ’s pizza crusts. One guess that AJ had for dinner tonight. The nerve. Tenzing will be on a special food for the rest of his life and a few new medications were added to the mix; these will probably be lifelong as well. Towards the end of the paperwork from the vet, it states in bold letters: There is no cure. This much we knew. The vet was very good to AJ when he picked up Tenzing tonight.

    Tenzing is resting comfortably and glad to be home. He reports that his favorite dog pillow, the best in the house, smells curiously like Belle Starr. He looked at me for explanation. I gave none.

    The quilt got back from the cleaners just in time. I just checked and Ros and Tenzing both have their heads resting on Melanie’s lap. Claudie is curled on top of Tenzing’s side. Bridger is curled in the corner, sleeping. Dan looks comfortable as well. Luna and Belle Starr have a place reserved from Rose for the lightening bolts on Friday—now, I understand why Belle Starr ordered a velvet rope online—and I think Luna tucked a corner of the quilt around the shoulders of Rio’s friend when Rio wasn’t looking.

    Wolfie: I’m glad you were able to catch the diabetes when you did. Tenzing said to tell Claudie the best part about life with less teeth is the canned dog food.
