    Howdy! Thanks, Admin! We had never heard that song before, but it is now our most favorite Christmas song.
    Feliz Navidad!

    Spence, sitting here at the oncologists’ office for the 6 month check and listening to the most realistic Christmas song ever. Dreaded this a m but now am laughing my fanny off waiting for the kitty scan.
    Have a funny Friday.

    Take care, HOH’s mom. Thinking of you from dark and gloomy Wisconsin (weather, not really the mood)!

    HOH: Thinking of an excellent outcome from the kitty scan.

    Spence: Dad has been a challenge lately but this song puts it all into perspective. It could be much, much worse. I am thankful for my families.

    Good morning all. That was a fun song, however, all those cigarettes made my cough worse. Yuck!

    HOH, Good luck with your scan.

    HOH – did you study hard enough to pass this test?

    Listened to the song. hmmmm. We think OFA has a dark side in more than just his writing.

    Hoping for good weather tomorrow – we may go off on an adventure.

    Oh, Dog is This a Preview of the Howl-a-Days?
    (Barb, Yeah the ashtray full of cigarettes got to us too)
    While on the link we also listened to Chet & Bernie’s song,
    The Road Goes on Forever.

    Hounds: We Will Wait with your mom for news of a Good Checkup.

    Tupper’s Mama: An Adventure! We Love Adventures.

    T & G, are the folks going to Chet’s diner?

    Dark and gloomy day here. Have Jack and Lyla this afternoon from 12:00 till 3:30. Half day of school today. May go out to lunch at Tommy’s, their favorite hot dog place.

    I like the husky video. Owning a husky is like having a blender with no lid. LOL

    HOH–thinking of you and wishing you a great scan (if that’s an appropriate sentiment).
    Good morning all.

    B,M and L–I love the husky/blender analogy.

    Tupper, tell your mom that song is awesome!!!
    A blender with not lid! heh! I resemble that remark!

    Tupper’s Mama: I swear that was Siber-H in that Video.
    It reminded us of how much We Miss Our SnowDog on this here blog.
    Don’t worry, Pal, we saved it for you.

    SiberH!….He would love that song…heh!heh!….I wonder what he is up to today…sniff!

    Thinking of Siber-H and family.

    Last 2 kittens were picked up last night at 10:15 pm. They arrived without a carrier and asked me to hold their check for a few days before cashing it. I had gone over the adoption costs ahead of time …. Mom was thinking her adult son could hold two squirmy kittens in the long car ride home. Why are people so clueless? I lent them a carrier from my foster organization and said that it had to be returned today.

    So now I have 2 mama cats plus I will be temporarily fostering a small litter while another foster is out-of-state for two weeks. I know I said I wouldn’t foster anymore until the mamas are gone but I guess I lied.

    Hoping to do a thorough cleaning downstairs. I did find a spot where kittens had clawed up a bit of my Berber carpet and unraveled it. Right in the middle of the floor of course. Do you think I can glue it down? What should I use?

    Someone is a big hearted softy where the kitty-kats are concerned.
    And some kats are just rude…using the Berber carpet as a scratching post.
    Can you call the carpet folks? Perhaps they will have a solution for repair. Check with Mr. Google too.

    Hobbit, I would not have let that woman take those kittens until she had the money and a carrier. She does not sound like a good, responsible mama.

    Mailing my check to Snowbella today. Included and extra $25 for the BOOTIE FUND!

    Paws crossed that they bring the carrier back. They don’t sound like the most responsible people.

    Doesn’t the Rescue place do interviews and background checks on these people?

  28. Masquers
    5:02 pm on December 5th, 2014

    or, are kats less important than dawgs?

    Studied hard. See Dr on Mon for test scores. Will let the “family” know then. Do not anticipate a plot twist 🙂

    Well, Mama bit the bullet and got her 6 phone. This oughta get interesting.

    Howlers – glad your mom liked the new song. We told her we would find something to make her smile

    The new owners had lost an 8-month old kitten to cancer–evidently its mama had Feline Leukemia and passed it onto her kittens. She was doing fine and then suddenly wasn’t. They took her to the vet right away but nothing could be done. So they already have toys and beds, etc. She mentioned buying litter made of walnut shells at $25/bag and completely changing the litter each week. I told them that my kittens were used to non-clumping litter which I buy at a pet store for $6.95 for a 40 lb bag.

    I keep in touch with all the people who take a kitten so I will be calling her today or tomorrow anyway.

    Tradition!….Every year Beau poses in front of the Christmas tree without any encouragement from my friend…heh!…This year he was so eager he posed before the final decorations have been put on and the base finished….heh!…My friend thinks this is adorable, but I know he was just looking for an opportunity to lift his leg on this little tree…snort!

  41. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:09 pm on December 5th, 2014

    Wishes!…Here he is again trying to find the perfect angle on which to lift his you-know-what when someone isn’t looking…heh!heh!… Although to my friend it looks like “Sweet” Beau is making Christmas Wishes….huffle!

    hmmmm Maybe we should get the little tree out of the basement. I guess I had to get the trip to Fargo out of the way before I could think about that.

    Rio, I sent Trisha the news so that is done. I can’t believe haw fast that happened. Your life can change so quickly. It is hard to comprehend.

    Hugs to all you Plunderers out there. I love you all. Even the stinky ones.
