Snoopy Yesterday, Lucy Today

“Here,” says Spence, “we have the world’s officially smallest working dog, a two-and-a-half pound Yorkie named Lucy.”

“What kind of work?” says Admin.

“Therapy,” Spence says. “She looks like a natural.”

Welcome Brandy and Stewie.

    Lucy is a sweetie. Her owner did a great job. Little dogs can be aggressive and people tend to think that is “cute”. This is a real working dog! She’s just aa tad too small for our household.

    Hmmm. I know this audition is for a V/O (voice over) but for what? Don’t know. This was done by his agents.

    I think I will stay out of puzzles way.

    Good Morning, Melanie, Chet, Spencer, Admin,
    Lucy is very sweet. It is unusual for a tiny dog to be so relaxed, isn’t it? Good for her human that she was rescued!

    Welcome to the regal Brandy and the cautious Stewie. I’d be cautious too if someone named me Stew.
    Little Lucy has a good job and twirls for treats. 🙂

    Hey there Melanie, OHs, Chet, Spencer, and Admin!

    What a cutie Lucy is. I just love the expression on her face!

    Lucy is a cutie.

    Everyone please note that Brandy has been welcomed today as a FOC. (Wish his picture had been cropped to include his entire nose.)

    Good morning all.

    B: You must be so proud of your boy, Brandy!

    Rio: I am twirling here for your friend!

    Rebecca: Are you done with kissing all the pack and AJ! You must be exhausted! Welcome home!

    B., Brandy’s picture looks like it was taken by Molly’s Mom.

    Thanks Rio. I only did it once. Maybe I need to do it more times.
    Have to pack up the laptop and get ready to go. BBL

  12. Melanie
    10:33 am on January 12th, 2012

    Riö, I’m not even going to LOOK at that link. 🙂

    Brandy FOC. A great title for a great dog.

    7 inches and counting. Getting to be a wet snow. Will it turn to rain? Can never tell her in the hills.

    I can’t use the snowblower anymore. That’s Jesse’s job. BUT, when I was getting the Element out from under the snow and went right through the 7 inches and then the mound at the end of of the driveway, I thought why not just use the Element to push the snow down?

    IT WORKED! Both driveways have been flattened (for now) and I didn’t get tired! I even talked to YSAS on the hand held out in the driveway while I was warming up the cars!

    Oh, an the audition (taking place now) is for a commercial.

  13. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:38 am on January 12th, 2012

    Commercial!….Yeeep!!….I hope it is for a Superbowl commercial…heh!…Think of all the millions and zillions of eyes that would get to see Clarkson….snort!

    10:39 am on January 12th, 2012

    We don’t usually talk politics here, but mom says that she would never vote for anyone who ties his dog on top of a car for a 12 hour ride is heartless. Seamus was so terrified that he had the runs. Mitt pulled over, hosed off the car and Seamus, and put him back on top of the car and kept driving.

    Mitt is a meany. Grrrrrrrr

    Barrack would never, ever do that to Bo.

  15. Siber-H
    10:47 am on January 12th, 2012

    Lucy is adorable.

    Kim Kardashian is being replaced by a dog in a Super Bowl ad. Maybe there is hope for this world.

    Welcome Brandy as FOC!

    Melanie, Mom uses her truck to push down snow in the driveway during the rare times it snows enough. No one in their right mind would own a snowblower in this country. They don’t seem to believe in shoveling snow either.

    Masquers, When you get around to it, Rio and I would please like a review of “Moneyball”.

  17. Melanie
    10:54 am on January 12th, 2012

    Here we are at four inches of snow. Still snowing right now, but much smaller flakes and some rain.

  18. Barb & Maggie
    11:03 am on January 12th, 2012

    Wolfie, We had not heard that story about Mitt. Will have to Google and get more details. As you all know, we here are Obama/Bo fans, but we thought Mitt was better than most of the choices out there on the other side. Now we are wondering!

    Lots of white stuff in the air here, and no chance of it turning to rain. Was in the 50’s Tuesday, may get down to 0 tomorrow. Hard for the chickens and goaties to get used to such drastic temp changes. Tues. the goats were out in the pasture, basking in the sun, today they wouldn’t even stick a nose out of the barn.

    Here’s an interesting Yorkie story. We get emails from Home Again, my microchip guys. Seems a Yorkie went missing in Texas while his owner was in the service. Showed up 6 months later, walking down a four lane highway in St.Louis. Someone rescued him before he got run over, thank Dog. When he was checked for a chip at the vets, they were able to locate his owner. He’s not saying where he was for those 6 months, but I bet he didn’t walk to Missouri!

  19. Tupper and Gilly
    11:11 am on January 12th, 2012

    It’s WHITE outside
    We HATE that white stuff. YOU trying having to do personal stuff when the snow is 5 inches and your legs are 4 1/2 inches.

  20. Staff
    11:16 am on January 12th, 2012


    Mr.Staff and I went to Moneyball. It is a baseball movie. It is about change and statistics and what is most important in your life, family or money. It is not a classic baseball movie. It is an interesting, funny and sad movie. Mr. Staff told me the coach played by the black guy is playing Ron Washington who was a coach for the team at that time. He has the line “It’s incredibly difficult.”

    I enjoyed differently than I thought I would. It is one of those movies that keeps growing on you after you see it.

    Mr.Staff also told me that the only reason this movie was made is that Brad Pitt wanted the story told. There is a book too which now I want to read.

  21. Barb & Maggie
    11:17 am on January 12th, 2012

    Wolfie, Just read the article about poor Seamus. It was a long time ago, but Mitt is not apologizing at all. He actually says the dog liked it and would have rather been up there for 12 hours, instead of in the car with the family. Wow! Not only was it cruel, it was illegal!

  22. Staff
    11:18 am on January 12th, 2012

    OK, the laptop is going down now. See you after the trip.

    11:30 am on January 12th, 2012

    Thanks Staff! It sounds good even if it isn’t really about baseball. I’m glad Mr. staff had some info on it. I like Ron Washington.
    Have a safe trip, but I know you guys are experienced travelers of the cold.

  26. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:37 am on January 12th, 2012

    Tripping!….Where are the Staff’s going?…sniff!…And what about Alice and AbbieTheKat? Are they going too? I hope Alice takes her video kamera just in case of flooding or some other natural disaster…snort!

  27. Siber-H
    11:42 am on January 12th, 2012

    They are traveling from back to the city from ND. The kats would have stayed in the city for this short trip.

    11:52 am on January 12th, 2012

    Thank you SH and Melanie.

    Great picture Melanie. (Sorry T&G.)

    It’s 39 and rainy here…the kind of weather I hate. I’m having dinner tonight with two friends from high school.

  29. Masquers
    11:54 am on January 12th, 2012

    For all of you out there (you know who you are) experiencing, as Natty would say “the base of balls” withdrawal, this sportskat’s recommendation is Moneyball. The two hour trip down memory lane with this true story will be just the ticket to cure your winter-time blues.
    As Staff has mentioned previously, there is also a book: Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game.
    Rio do put this one in your queue. I’m sure both you and Siber would enjoy the movie and the book.

  30. Melanie
    11:58 am on January 12th, 2012

    I’ll have to mention it to ZoĂ«. She’s the big fan here of that particular sport.

    She’s gone down to see Dan!

  31. Siber-H
    12:12 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Thanks Masquers, I’ll make sure mom gets it for us, and then I”m sure we will have to read the book.

  32. OleyHowlers
    12:14 pm on January 12th, 2012

    We are also reading a baseball-related book:”Wail til Next Year” by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Great baseball memories in this story, as well as other memories of her growing-up years.

  33. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:17 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Baseball!…. Movie!….Yuppers, I will make sure that movie is at the top of our queue once she gets home from the not-very-busy-place and logs me into Netflix…snort!….She doesn’t let me know the password for obvious reasons…sniff!

  34. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:19 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Book!…Oley, we here just finished that book a few months ago…snort!…I really enjoyed it. I think SiberH buzzed through it too in one sitting…heh!

    12:39 pm on January 12th, 2012

    We can just picture teeny, tiny Lucy Twirling for Treats. Have you noticed how the majority of the shelter dogs saved prove to be some of the most talented guys and gals of the Nation?

    Wolfie: This guy is now on our List and not a good one! Dogs against is something we can be For.

    SnowBella, Melanie, Royals, Barb&Magpie: Looks like a Winter Wonderland in your parts. Stay cozy warm.
    And, Staff, safe trip home for you and Mr Staff to Minnesota.

    Rio: If that is what I think it is, there will be no clicking here on thatthere link. Many hours were whiled away yesterday on the Husky puzzle. Nana is not good at these. Oh, but they are addictive!

    Sammy: Poor MollysMom. Just because all those white cars rudely drove in front of her that one time she was trying to take a picture…..
    B: Apparently it was either Brandy’s ear or nose that couldn’t make it into the picture, so it was decided to include part of each.

  36. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:58 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Bear!…Could you please quit messing around on the computer and tell Maskers to check his SDD…grunt!

  37. BearSpiritDog
    1:00 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Okay…When we finally bravely clicked on it. we found Rio’s link not to be what we had thought it was after all. The subject reminded Nana of a doctor’s admonition of yesteryear: Don’t put anything bigger than your elbow into your ear (or your foot into your mouth)

    O.Howlers: Siber-H and Rio recommended that book a few months back. It sounds good.

    Dawson: Have been meaning to ask…did the Angel check out okay? The travel time wasn’t too extreme (16 days) being that it was the holiday mailing and all. You really aren’t that far away, but those border crossings can really slow things down.

    I need food! Fading fast!

    For all you book lovers out there. I can’t imagine the time it took to do this.
    What do books in libraries and bookstores do at night:

    Snickering here. I thought it was about basketball! Oh, well.

    I am feeling better. Had the energy to pack away the Christmas village which had turned into the Zombie Christmas Village. What can I say? My guys are weird.

    Driving back from the dump last night, I saw many hilltown people keep their outside lights up. I’ve thought about it and this is what I’ve come up with.

    It’s dark here. No street lights, no ambient glow. I know a few of us have that going on around them. Cough, cough, Bella and Staff (not sure about OleyHowlers).

    I think it’s a “here I am world” statement. When we go down either way from our high abode, it’s 30 minutes of DARK. Then out of the blackness comes colored lights.

    Sort of nice, really.

  42. Barb & Maggie
    1:15 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Wolfie, One more Rommney comment on the doggy issue. We went to that Dogs Against site and apparently the version of the story about Mitt hosing off the car as been cleaned up a bit. There is info from a family friend that he actually took the car through a car wash, with Seamus still on top. Sounds more like a multi-millionaire, then actually stopping and cleaning it himself. Wonder if Seamus got wonderfluffed at the same time!

  43. Masquers
    1:17 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Rio: Check!

  44. Melanie
    1:17 pm on January 12th, 2012

    C.Harris: Love the links! The bookstore one had 27 (?) volunteers doing all the moving. That is awesome.

    And that puppy is very sweet. Really likes his food.

  45. OleyHowlers
    1:32 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Jasper, awwwwww that husky is cute!

    Regarding lights: We had candles in all of our windows in December. Mom says she didn’t have a good night’s sleep all that month. All of our decorations, including those candles, were put away on 1/1, and Mom is now getting deep rems. We don’t see any lights from our place, but there are some neighbors not too far away who have outside lights. We love to drive around looking at Christmas lights, but when the holidays are over, we look forward to what we refer to as “The Abyss”.

  46. Siber-H
    1:39 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, Mom does too. She likes your word, “The Abyss”

  47. BearSpiritDog
    1:42 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: Grrr and Double GRRR! Going through a carwash with Seamus on top? That is a thousand times worse. That poor guy must be traumatized to the Max. Four-leggeds everywhere – Unite! We have a fight on our hands.

    C.Harris: Thank you for the links. Anything to do with books gets our attention!

  48. Melanie
    1:49 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Did I tell you guys that I made two different calendars on shutterfly? No one gave us a Newf Calendar for Christmas and there was the one awhile back called Newf Gone Bad. Unfortunately, they don’t make that anymore. But someone gave the link.

    I made two calendars out of some of our great photos! Coming soon I hope.

  49. Siber-H
    2:06 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Awwww Thanks Jasper. That is a cute Husky. Love the way the eye makeup runs down the nose.

  50. BearSpiritDog
    2:22 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Heh! Just saw Eleanor Roofsevelt at the top. Melanie, wasn’t she on the offical Chet ID when you and the folks went to Spence’s signing?

  51. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:43 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Calendars!…Melanie, would it be possible to make a Plunderer’s Calendar?…snort!…I mean if you had enough good photos and all….wuffle!….How much does it cost to create a Calendar out there on shutterbug or fly or whatever that site is?…grunt!

  52. Masquers
    2:57 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Plunderer Calendar! That is a most Excellent idea.

  53. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:10 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Maskers!…My freind just send me a text message that says you are giving her a heart attack!…snort!…Whats up with that!?…sniff!

  54. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    3:29 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Wow. I just had Beau and Rio side-by-side in Chet’s friends. Is that too cool or what?
    A Plunderers Calendar sounds like a great idea, although my dad has already ordered the 2012 Snowhook calendar, so we may be set for awhile.
    He also tried the Knit race puzzle that Staff posted the link to yesterday. Took him about 8 minutes, decent but not great. He is staying away from the site though, fearing it could become very addictive.

  55. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:41 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Sunflowers!….It took my friend 12:33 to do one of the sunflower puzzles…grunt!…How slow can you go?..sniff!

  56. Melanie
    4:25 pm on January 12th, 2012

    BSD: Yes, she was on our ID!

    Riö: I still have your friend beat. I take more time than that!

    A Plunderer’s Calendar sounds great. I did our when there was a sale. I’ll look at their site again.

    Gus and BooBear: I know I’m getting you a Golden Paw (and myself), for those of you who want another, I’ll go to the site this weekend and look up how much it would be with shipping. I think it would be about $3.75.

  57. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    4:28 pm on January 12th, 2012

    I had heard the version about the car wash but I wasn’t sure it was true. Makes me sick to think about it.

    Mitt later said that the crate was airtight, but if that was true, how could he breathe, and how could the poop leak out?

  58. Snowhook Bella
    4:39 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Last night was like Christmas for me! I snagged Wolfie’s toffee on my way out yesterday morning, but last night was able to read the wonder Christmas cards from the Plunderers and enjoy my bling from Melanie (paws off, Belle Starr!), and my picture of Spence and Audrey. It made my day.

    KirbyT was on the top of my page a moment ago and now SiberH is looking handsome as ever at the top of my page.

    Wookie: I dropped the calendar in the mail this morning. You should have it next week.

    Plundering on along the trail with AJ! If you have a couple of pictures you can’t decide between, please send them both. If we have room and collectively, the photos aren’t too heavy, I will try to include them both. If not, please note which one is the priority to be on the trail.

  59. Barb & Maggie
    4:43 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Good ole Mitt has lost a few votes, even tho that is an old story. We just heard it, thanks to Wolfie.

    Eleanor Roosevelt – In Dan’s book, White Wings, one of the characters, a liberal young minister, says he voted for FDR, because it was the next best thing to being able to vote for Eleanor. Maybe that is partially the reason that Eleanor the Newfie got that name!

  60. Masquers
    5:10 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Rio: No worries. Bear says he can only count to two.

  61. BearSpiritDog
    5:21 pm on January 12th, 2012

    We have you all beat on that darn Husky puzzle. One must have to be a puzzle affectionado to finish so quickly. It’s like those guys that can do the New York Times Crossword in pen.

    Dawson: Prepare for a super fast delivery. TMGs will not prevail!

  62. Siber-H
    5:27 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Bear, You don’t have my mom beat on the Husky puzzle.

  63. Sam
    5:36 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Ha ha you guys. We just did the husky puzzle In 10 seconds. It might have been the one with six pieces.

  64. Snowhook Bella
    5:41 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Due to a winter weather warning, I’m working from home today. Tenzing, is assisting in the best way he knows how—napping on the couch with his head on the keyboard of my laptop.

  65. Barb & Maggie
    5:58 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Some one just emailed Barb a movie called Rescued by Rover, a silent film from 1905. The dog looked almost like me!

    Barb is leaving the office, and is hoping she can find the road to get home. All white out there!

  66. Riö – The Evil Pug
    6:01 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Barb!…Be careful! Drive defensively…snort!

  67. OleyHowlers
    6:16 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Be very careful, Barb! We hate it when Mom has to drive home in that stuff. Rebecca, glad you got to work from home.

    We only said that we were able to do that Husky puzzle. We didn’t say how embarrassingly long it took us. Now it makes us wonder who did the fastest and the average times.

  68. Snowhook Bella
    6:23 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Barb: Remember to pump your brakes and don’t allow yourself to bully you into driving faster than you’re comfortable. It amazes me the number of people on the road that have more confidence in the tred on my tires and my reflexes than I do.

  69. BearSpiritDog
    6:23 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Maggie: We think Barb’s office should have closed early to allow for safe travel. Let us know when she gets home.

  70. Melanie
    6:26 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Gluten free fudge and brownies delivered!

    Eleanor gor her name because of a town story! Eleanor Roosevelt came to our town and gave a speech. We know that for certain. The story is that she stayed in our house!


    We are thinking of having a birthday party for our house this year. It will be 200 years old. Zoe says some days she feels 200 years old.

  71. Melanie
    6:30 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Okay, the Golden Paw will be $3.00 and that will include shipping.
    Let me know if you want another one!

  72. Rose
    6:50 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Jasper: That husky is way cute!

    Barb: Be careful out there!

    My favorite baseball movie is “Pride of the Yankees.” I’m very sentimental about that movie, since my dad and I use to watch it whenever it was on TV.

  73. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    6:55 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Tupper & Gilley: Your should whine like I do and act like you just can’t make it outside when the snow is high. Then your Dad will shovel the whole backyard making just the right space for you to go out and “do your business.” THEN you can leap and run through the snow beyond the shoveled area (heh-heh) just for fun. But a guy has to have standards, and making sure you have a good place to go is very important. Your friend Wookie.

  74. Melanie
    7:10 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Wöökie, you are the best! (Hope the Newfs don’t read that. Not that they are having any problem with this snow)

    We’ve got 3.5 inches more coming our way tonight. Let’s see they called for 1.5 inches and we got 7 . . . So this means (doing higher math in my head) we probably won’t have any more.

  75. Barb & Maggie
    7:23 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Barb made it home safely, checked the critters in the barn, and is in for the night.

    She told her CL she would like to leave at 4:45 just to make it home before dark. CL was quiet for a few seconds, then said OK. However, then she called about 4:42 and asked Barb to do some emailing before she left. When Barb called her (CL was home of course) at 4:58, she said “Oh gosh, close up and get home before dark”. Jeeze, thanks a bunch!

  76. Siber-H
    7:25 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Rose, We also love that movie. The most recent biography of Lou Gehrig is also very good.
    The most recent biography of Mickey Mantle, “The Last Boy”, is another good one.

  77. Snowhook Bella
    7:34 pm on January 12th, 2012

    B&M: I’m very fortunate that my employer puts safety above emails. The first month that I worked for them, I was traveling to Juneau. I left the house at 330 in the morning to make it to the airport; I left so early because the forecast from the night before called for freezing rain. There is one road/highway from Willow to Anchorage. The radios finally went live by the time I made it to the halfway point; roads were closed, schools were closed and everyone was cautioned to stay home. I couldn’t turn around. Long story short, I missed my flight, made it to the office over 5 hours after I left my house. I was greeted by two co-workers who had braved the roads and made it to the office. They gave me strict instructions that I was to call one of my bosses who was at home asap. I thought she was upset that I missed my flight and would have to reschedule my meetings; I was trying desperately to make a good impression. Her exact words didn’t start with a greeting, but launched into, “We love you for your loyalty. We admire your for your dedication. But, don’t do a bone head thing like that again.” They had been worried because all they knew was that I was supposed to be on a plane, but never made it and I hadn’t answered my cell phone because I was concentrating on driving. She finished with, “Repeat after me: When the roads are bad, Rebecca stays home. Good. Say it again. Alright, now committ it to memory.”

    Again we’ve hit that time where no one else is about. Happens now and then when Riö is awake later.

    So I’ll say TTFN

    Going to see Dan in the morning after we met with the assessment dude.
    He added some very interesting things to our assessment this year. Like a whole new part of the basement. Which is actually less than a crawl space being only 1 foot high. Love to see anyone crawl into that.

    And two porches we don’t have and a new mud room. Which is actually the barn.
    Should be interesting.

    Rio: An ear wax link! Seriously? That’s gross! Staff and I only did that once and only because our younger sister did it…and survived. It does feel really cool though…kinda like very bubbly champagne for your ears. Maybe I will try that again.
    C.Harris: The book video was wonderful, however, the people who moved the books to make that video are crazy and have too much time on their hands. Oh…I now see they had volunteers. That’s okay then. Heh.
    BearSpiritDog: The angel aromatherapy candle dealie arrived in perfect condition. I still have it but have not used it. The person to whom I may (or may not) give it to is in the Riviera. Am I expecting another delivery? A super fast one?

    Melanie: You have no idea. I have three bosses. Each is amazing to work with in his or her own way.

    Dawson: the decals and magnet you ordered are in there way. They’ve been boxed and shipped by Masquers and BSD.

  83. Barb & Maggie

    Rebecca, Can I package my boss up and send her your way for some re-training? Or maybe you can just keep her! Your bosses sound wonderful. Mine, not so much.

  84. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:22 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Three!….Bosses!…snort!…I think Rebecca lives in a Winter Wonderland…chorkel!

    Dawson!…I could have posted and Earwig link, but that would not have been as informative…heh!heh!

  85. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:27 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Wookie!…I’m all for someone shoveling out the backyard for me to do my business in….wooooo!…That would be amazing. As it is all the snow has finally melted around here…sniff!… Just waiting for the next big load to dump and I don’t mean Beau doing his business…heh!

  86. BearSpiritDog

    Dawson: The envelope should reach you by next week at this time. We like the version of magnet and decal you chose – it’s our favorite too.

    Barb&Magpie: Barb you have a boss similar to one Nana worked for years ago. She would leave and let the rest of the office worry about the commute home. Maybe your CL can go work with Tupper&Gilly’s CL at the end of the month. At least then they can feed off each others drama and keep one another entertained.

    Melanie: Living in a 200 year old house. That is so cool! Has it been classified as Historical?

  87. dawson
    8:58 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Earwigs! Yucko! (but Maggie likes to eat ’em.)
    Rio: Your snow has melted?
    If some snow doesn’t start falling in big dumps, the drought that MacyMinPin and SiberH. experienced last year is going to encompass the North as well.

    Rachel Maddow is talking about the Mitt Romney Seamus affair. Romney is such a liar.

  89. BearSpiritDog
    9:14 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Sammy; Good for Rachel! The more people that know about this the better. He’s not going to be very popular with animal lovers that’s for sure.

  90. Barb & Maggie
    9:17 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Sam, What did Rachel say about Seamus? I think she lives near Melanie. Maybe we can wake Melanie up and she can go ask her! Snicker

  91. Sam
    9:42 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Rachel is a neighbor of Melanie. Rachel stressed that if Romney said the dog loved to ride on the roof of Romney’s car, well okay sort of, but when the dog was in distress, he was hosed off and remained there, that’s abuse. Go Rachel!

  92. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:47 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Maddow!…Do you guys think Rachel follows this blog?…grunt!…I wonder if Mill will be asked about his behavior towards one of our guys on national tv one day soon…heh!…That I would really love to see…sniff! …Who does he think he is, Chevy Chase?…gruffle!

  93. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:48 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Grunt!…How does Mitt turn into Mill?…heh!

  94. Barb & Maggie
    9:53 pm on January 12th, 2012

    They are calling this crate-gate. There are many animal lovers that will not vote for him just over this issue. If he said, “Hey, I’m sorry, it was probably not a good thing to do. In retrospect, we should have had him in the car with the kids”, I think that would be more favorable for him. Instead he sort of did that politican smirk, and said “I loved the dog, that’s all I got for ya”. Then he went on to say “We had a lot of dogs and we took good care of them” Then an aid ended the interview. Doubt if this is going to go away.

    So many mentions of Christmas today, I have to send you my picture of the Amish
    Christmas lights. I took it a couple of years ago, but I don’t think I posted it last year.

  96. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:06 pm on January 12th, 2012

    SNORT!…heh!heh!…Amish Lights!

  97. BearSpiritDog
    10:06 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: Heh! Crate-Gate!

    TYB: Nothing came through.

  98. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:13 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Package!….My friend got a package in the mail from a friend of hers…snort!…It had a big old bowl of home-made treats for Me!Me!Me!…sniff!…and maybe Beau. Not sure about that though. Plus, a big bowl of pretzels for her! ….grunt! …My friend loves, loves, loves pretzels!…snorkel!…She is trying desperately not to eat all of them before the big football game this Saturday night…heh!… This is way more temptation than she can endure me thinks…wuffle! ….Although, I see she has put them away somewhere she can’t see them, and promises not to take them out till kick-off time against Spencer’s team this weekend….woooooo!

  99. Barb & Maggie
    10:14 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Bear, He caught people with the Amish Lights before. Get it – they don’t use electricty!

  100. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:16 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Lights!….Bear, repeat after me….”Amish Lights”…heh!cough!

  101. Staff
    10:21 pm on January 12th, 2012

    TYB, you got me!
    Thank goodness you said something Rio. I refreshed once already trying to get the Amish lights to turn up. (I thought they were going to be lanterns.)

  102. dawson
    10:23 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Ha! Good one Tyb.

  103. Barb & Maggie
    10:24 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Well Rio, at least you and I got it my friend!

  104. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:26 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Lights!…. I have to admit, I checked the file name for punctuation….snort!!snort!!…Before it dawned on me!…heh!

  105. Barb & Maggie
    10:27 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Time for bed, good night all y’all!

    Hope Kirby is OK. Did anyone hear anything?

  106. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:33 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Revenge!….We are trying to muddle through another episode of Revenge…grunt!….Just can’t quite piece the pieces together yet of this story….sniff!…Maybe that’s why we keep coming back to watch it….wuffle!

  107. BearSpiritDog
    10:41 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Gah! I regretted the moment I pushed that send button.

    Hi everyone –
    10 DAYS TO GO!!
    TYB – loved the Amish Lights. tee hee

    Bella – you are truly blessed to have not one but 3 good bosses. Maybe thats why there is such a shortage of them in I?llinois and Massachusetts.
    Mama says she would almost be willing to move to Alaska and deal with the snow, ice, cold and dark if she could just have a good boss…..naw….she’ll just stay home and play with clay.

    CL story of the day. There was a lot of snow and slush in the CLL parking lot. We have a terrible landlord who ignores potholes and dangerous conditions as long as possible, and who didn’t want to plow because “its supposed to turn to rain” CL is in Vermont – she calls in to see how the day is going – basically, Mama had a 5 hour shift and had 7 hour long appointments scheduled during that time – so the answer was “hectic and frantically busy” But when told about the very dangerous condition of the parking lot, CL tells Mama that she needs to go outside whenever she sees headlights, and tell the people coming in to be careful. CL thinks that will protect her from liability if someone slips and falls.

    Mama seriously thought about “slipping and falling” on her way out of work, but that would mean she would have to deal with CL long after her Jan 31 deadline.

    (p.s. – CL still has done nothing about finding a replacement – she keeps insisting that Mama won’t really leave. duh…)

  109. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:56 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Uh Huh!…This whole “quitting” the Crazy bad habit is going just as I predicted it will….snort!cough!….No ones going any where…sniff! …February 1st will feel like Gound Hog Day….chorkel!

  110. BearSpiritDog
    10:58 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Tupper&Gilly: One thing we’ll miss in February is your mama’s CL stories. We think she should also consider changing her phone number.

  111. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:04 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Ruckus!….Well, we hear Beau raising some ruckus upstairs about going outside or going to bed or both….grunt!…So I have to sign off and make sure he gets in his own bed and not her mothers bed ….grump!….What a jerk he can be. Baseball season is going to spell his D-O-O-M….heh!heh!…I can’t wait!..snorkel!

  112. BearSpiritDog
    11:21 pm on January 12th, 2012

    Turning in here too – night all – Bear

  113. AbbietheKitty
    11:58 pm on January 12th, 2012

    I feel sorry for Beau. I think he should be able to get in a nice warm bed too. Sob sob sob…

  114. Snowhook Bella
    12:00 am on January 13th, 2012

    Tyb: Clever! I couldn’t help but laugh.

    T&G and Barb: You can take the lady out of the office, but you can’t take the crazy out of the lady.

    Still no word from KirbyT…

  115. Tupper and Gilly
    12:14 am on January 13th, 2012

    Rio et al – you can beleive it – on February 1 there will be a cry of freedom like none heard by human ears before.

    Ok, ok, so maybe that’s just a little bit over dramatic. But she is counting down the days. And stick a fork in her, cuz she’s DONE.

    You all will have to start depending on Barb and Maggie for CL stories from that point on.

    Or maybe Macy’s Mom will be finished with her new schooling and will find a fabulous job with great pay, good benefits, good hours, fun work, and…..a crazy boss.

    And for now – good night friends. Sleep well, dream wonderful dreams and awaken to a happy day.

  116. Macy the Min-Pin
    12:53 am on January 13th, 2012

    Puleeze!! Mom has already had a lifetime supply of CLs. She did actually apply for 3 jobs today.
