Random Amazon Review We Like


5.0 out of 5 stars Chet the dog is the best story-teller!, April 3, 2014
Phoebe Bailey on Thereby Hangs A Tail:
I absolutely love this dog and his amazing personality and perspective. It’s very funny and still a darn good detective story with a beautifully defective detective with a great heart and priorities. They make a wonderful partnership.

    I really love this review. Bernie IS beautifully defective with great heart. Short, sweet and right on.

    Good morning, everyone and especially B&M(&L). We agree with B&M&L about this review. Need to apologize to Sadie Bear for missing her treaties Tues. 🙁
    Have a wonder-fluffed Wednesday.

    A good review of THAT (and the series).

    Good morning all.

    Macy is worse this morning. She spent the night in a kennel and this morning she won’t let me help her up. I took her a spoonful of the prescription food and she gobbled it right down, but she won’t even try to stand up. I am trying my best to get to Saturday in one piece, but this fresh new hell is about to push me over the edge. And she needs her meds, but I don’t want to go through the ordeal of last night again. Could one of you just run over here and give her the meds and take her outside? It will only take a minute…

    Oh, Macy’s Mom. we don’t know what to say …. you have so much on your plate. Darn Darn Darn.
    And poor Macy, too. We are worrit about those meds.

    Bernie? Defective? huh???? Hold on a dogdarn minute!

    Oh, Macy! I am very worried about you and your mom!

    Great video of the Giant and the Pixie! I love how every dog has a big grin, and their tongues are lolling about.

    Royal Mum, I hope the Storyteller will be tip-top soon. Sending big hug to you both.

    Nice review.

    I think if Mr. Redbone Hound would wrap his long ears around Miss Macy, it would help her feel a bit better.

    Nice Review!

    ML: If Hugs will Help they are Here in Abundance.

    We think Wose has the answer for Miss Min-Pin to lift her spirits and get her on her feet again.

    Mariners over Angels 5-3 in opening game at Safeco Field. Wooo!

    Macy: It’s no fun for anyone feeling sick. We here have paws crossed you will be feeling tip-top very very soon.

    Off to appointments until late this afternoon.

    doc said 25 mg of tramadol and after I cut the 50 in half it was probably less than 25. She was having trouble walking before she had the meds.

    Thank you all of you suggestions, and questions. It is keeping me occupied with something besides worry.

  14. Macy's Mom
    11:34 am on April 9th, 2014

    ok moderator i get it no tram a dol.

    Best review ever! I believe Phoebe implicitly. No other reviews are needed, ever. Heh!

    Macy’s Mom: I am worried about MacyMinPin but also about you. Sending healing thoughts and prayers for both of you.

    Tupper’s Mama: It is good to have a diagnosis for the Storyteller and he will get better food now he’s at home. I hope the health professionals gave Storyteller some tools to prevent recurrences of this nature.

    Macy, Mom really wishes she could come there and take care of you for your mom.

    Macy needs bloodwork and a through workup done so the vets can figure out what is going on.
    I know your mom has a lot going on right now.
    We want you to get well.

    Rio, The Rockies play an afternoon game today. I will not say a word about it. I read your post last night about the fans thinking about not attending the games anymore because of how rotten the Rockies are playing. That might shake up the front office. I don’t know.
    I watched part of the game last night and then gave up.

    A crackle ice day!
    This is the time of the year when the temperatures are above freezing during the day, the snow melts and water runs along the sides of the streets to the drains. At night the temperatures go below freezing long enough for a thin layer of ice to form on top of the water. This is crackle ice. It makes a delicious loud crackling noise when stepped upon. It is addictive. When I was young I would race my friends to be the one to step on the crackle ice. On my walk today I found the sides of the streets covered in crackle ice and no one but me on the streets. I crackled along the street to my heart’s content. Life just doesn’t get any better than this!

    Dawson, That cartoon is funny. We should send it to the Rockies.

    1:50 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Dawson, That is how I feel about bubble wrap! I could just bust bubbles all day long.
    BTW, snicker at the cartoon.

  22. Macy's Mom
    1:51 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Dawson, we had some of that crackle ice a couple of years ago. It IS fun to step on!

    I not sure if this works…Typical ride a New York subway.

    2:32 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Wose: Yeeeeee Hah! Nothing like a rodent wake up call on the Monday morning commute to work. I laughed long and out loud at this one.

  26. Wose-the small and meek
    2:37 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Dawson, I laughed out loud at this too. If I was on that train, not so much. More like screaming.

  27. dawson
    2:48 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Wose: Unearthly noises would have been coming involuntarily from my throat if I was on that train!

    I have finally uploaded my video camera photos to this blankety-blank windows 8 computer where I am now trying to find them.

  28. O'Howlers
    2:52 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Dawson, funny cartoon!
    Wose, Mom has the same addiction to bubble wrap. Drives us nutz.
    We would love to be on that subway train. We’d grab that there rat!!!

  30. Melanie
    3:25 pm on April 9th, 2014

    I think I got this up correctly. Melanie was my computer go to person. the above is from the high school where McKey got so much encouragement for his acting and where Melanie did a lot of work and made many friends. I would like to change the name to Zoe, but it doesn’t seem to like that. Any ideas?

  31. Basil and Sage
    3:36 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Zoe – you should be able to go into the Name (required) box, and change the name to yours. Then post something in the comment box and hit submit. Your post should go up with your name, and the name box should retain that information.

    And here from hospital central – we are still waiting for the doctor to come today, so it is a pretty safe bet that the Storyteller will not be home today. sigh….

    But, the roommate, while completely antisocial, is watching a tv show on Discovery that is all about Alaska. They are talking about flying dog teams from Unalakleet and other sites we have heard during the Iditarod. We daren’t ask the roommate what the show is (he is one very angry guy), but we will look up what the show was when we get home. The audio portion is fascinating.

    And we are checking in to see how Macy is doing.

  32. O'Howlers
    4:55 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Zoe, That program is marvelous. It made Mom sniff to see that they are dedicating it to our dear friend. Thank you for posting.
    Herbs, We are disappointed, as we are sure you are, that The Storyteller is not coming home to you you you today. But we do feel good that he is on the path to recovery.

    SiberH!…I have my little headphones on and am listening to the game right now….snort!…This is more like it. A little back and forth scoring instead of whatever that was last night…grunt!

  34. Mollypop's Mom
    5:18 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Royal’s Mum, ask the doctors if the storyteller can take Mucinex. It is OTC and keeps the mucus in the lungs loose. I take it once a day or twice if needed and my poor lungs appreciate it.

  35. Siber-H
    5:47 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Rio, yes, This is a better baseball game than last night’s nightmare.

    Oops–sorry about the DD. I’m somewhat distracted.
    Thanks for the Viking Golinka picture–it was perfect. Also, if there are extra baby kangaroos I’d also like one.

    Everyone, be well. Holding those with special challenges today in my heart.

    Our mom hates us! She was gone most of the day so we couldn’t tell Macy and her mom that we love them and to breathe in and out and we will send pawsitive thoughts their way! She told us that she did get really good news on her 63,000 mile girlie check-up.
    Zoe, thank you for posting that wonder bit of the program…your girl and our friend made friends where ever she went 🙂
    Hope Storyteller gets home tomorrow.

  40. Barb & Maggie
    6:45 pm on April 9th, 2014

    We also hope The Storyteller can go home tomorrow. Waiting to hear an update on Macy. Macy’s mom has enough on her plate, she needs all four-leggeds to be healthy.

    When Barb was driving thru the subdivision this morning she saw a fox. It just stopped and lay down in a vacant lot and stared at her. Do you think it was OK?

  41. dawson
    6:52 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Oh…(reading every other word). I thought the Storyteller was already home. One more day of hospital fare.
    Zoe: What an honor for them to dedicate a production to our good friend. So this is where McKey got his start!

  42. dawson
    6:57 pm on April 9th, 2014

    HOH’s Mom: Congratulations on the checkup! I am only at 5,000 miles miles, so my checkup can wait.
    SiberH: Does that mean the Rockies are actually winning or just that they are not getting beat as bad as they were yesterday?

  60. Tupper's Mama
    9:29 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Home from the hospital for the night. The Storyteller reacted poorly to some meds, so they are keeping him and doing more blood work. He should be fine as soon as they find the right med for him.
    Hoping that Macy is doing better tonight. Sleep well all.

  61. Mollypop's Mom
    9:31 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Rio, stay tuned for Ryan Seacrest’s response to Harry Connick’s hijinks. Don’t nod off.

  68. Dawson

    Nope . I guess it was just updating. My pictures are lost in the Windows 8 system.

    11:28 pm on April 9th, 2014

    JDawson, isn’t there somewhere like the big windows icon at the bottom of the screen where options pop up and one is pictures? Just taking a stab at it, because I think I am still using 6 on this computer. Shortly I will start using Rick’s which is newer and has at least 7 on it.

    Macy’s appetite is full force, but she can’t seem to stand up enough to squat, poor baby. I am about to take her outside, assisted by a baby blanket under her belly to help her walk, then give her another bowl of can food flavored water to hydrate her.
    Paws crossed for a better tomorrow.

    Rat was just confused because he got on the wrong train.

  75. Macy's Mom
    11:49 pm on April 9th, 2014

    Macy the dog update. She came out of her kennel for some of her “special soup” (prescription dog food in a bowl of water), then went outside on mostly all fours, then came in, took her pills and wandered around for a bit. Thanks for all the pup prayers.

  76. dawson
    12:32 am on April 10th, 2014

    Macy’s Mom: Sounds as if Macy is marginally better. Hoping for more improvement tomorrow.
    Yes, there is a windows icon and I can find where my pictures are but I can’t see a way to “select” a photo to post it. Alternatively I am trying to load all my pictures from Windows 8 onto my ipad because I think I can post easily from the Apple computer. I’m way done for tonight though.
    It is fun looking at all these pictures from our Alaska trip!

  77. Macy's Mom
    12:36 am on April 10th, 2014

    JDawson, have you tried to right click anything? When I do that on mine, it gives me options like open, share, open with, etc. all with right click.

    Howlers, get those ‘rents well pronto.

    Amalia, hang in there and take a double dose of all that great advise you have been giving me for yourself.

  78. Macy's Mom

    Hello All,

    I’ve been tasked with telling you all that Rebecca is stuck in Fort Yukon do to a problem with a plane. She hopes to get out tomorrow. She also said she rescued some guy from the Bronx today.

    Also, check out this link for a look at what “technical” looks like. This is Jeff King’s Go Pro video which shows a couple of sections of trail. Keep in mind that the worst sections of the Gorge were edited out. My guess is that the language forced him to edit those sections out. Not that I have any experience with that.


    If this link doesn’t work search “Jeff King/Anchorage Daily News/Hold Tight.”

    Good Night All.

    Tupper’s Mama–Hoping the Storyteller gets to go home today (Thursday) and that you had a good night’s sleep.
    Macy’s Mom–Hoping that the appetite is a precursor to more recovery today.
    Everyone–Death in the extended family kept me out of the loop yesterday, but thinking of you all (also praying).

    Hope Macy and The Storyteller continue to improve. Barb is leaving soon for her 2nd workday of the week. Be back tonight.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.
