    Tupper and Gilly and Wose and Teddy, ENJOY!!!!! We are very jealous. Oh yes we are.

    Good morning, everyone! The video was almost as good as being at one of the book signings 🙂 Glad Rio checked in last night. Raining canines and felines here. Mom is hiding the computer and heading for her time at the library.
    Plunderfest Vermont folks, enjoy, wish we were there.

  6. Barb & Maggie

    We too are taking off, or at least Barb is. Busy week – work today and Thursday, eye doc appointment tomorrow. Would rather be at the Plunderfest, but oh well. Also, BBML.

    Basil and Sage are up top. Hey! Why aren’t they at Plunderfest Vermont? We felines need to unite for justice.
    Excellent video. Thanks for acknowledging our online community, Spencer.

  8. Barb & Maggie

    And he even showed a picture of our Quilt. Wow!

    ok, Now we’re out of here for real.

  9. Basil and Sage
    9:04 am on June 24th, 2014

    T.C. – we would go to Plunderfest, but it would mean driving in a car.
    Yowl, yooooowwwl, ack, ack, splort.

    When we had our last plunderer meeting here in Amherst and then on to Massachusetts, I had to use a substitute passport because I couldn’t find the real one. I was afraid I had lost that beautiful passport made by the Turtleman when I moved. But happy happy, yesterday it turned up. It was hiding in plain sight in my bookshelves.

    Happy Plunderfest Vermont!!!

    Herbs, Don’t ever give them an easy out. When you know you aren’t going, insist you want to go. Guilt is a beautiful thing.

  13. B.Stover
    9:45 am on June 24th, 2014

    I don’t remember seeing that video before.

    Howlers: I’m glad the explanation cleared up the its vs. it’s problem.

    Good morning all.

  14. Belle Starr
    11:23 am on June 24th, 2014

    If I’m not part of Plunderfest I am going to be in a very bad mood. Snort! Wheeze! Sparkle!

  15. Siber-H
    11:44 am on June 24th, 2014

    Great video! Thanks Spence!
    Beautiful pictures of Audrey and the quilt.

    I’m looking forward to reports and pictures from the Plunderfest.

    Hello All–wishing Plunderfest participants a wonderful (and safe) time.
    HOH–My library exhausted their budget for substitute librarians, so I won’t be called back until July (grump–no excuse not to do housework). envy you your rain, anyway (if that makes any sense).
    Nice to see that Spence checks the blog daily. I assume Chet does, too.
    BSD–You were capitalizing Nouns and Adjectives. Like a German (the nouns, anyway).
    I am starved for music and fun, but will have to make do with a) ballet class; and b) a shower with Conan (which always has some added entertainment value related to his willingness to get into the shower or not).
    Have a delightful day, all.

    11:52 am on June 24th, 2014

    SiberH: We feel like digging some holes today. You game?

  18. Siber-H
    11:59 am on June 24th, 2014

    Thieves, Sounds like a winner to me!!

  19. BearSpiritDog

    Thieves: Just Wait Until Your Mother Gets HOme!

  20. Zeus
    12:40 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Wait up, Guys! I’ll join you.

  21. Siber-H
    12:43 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Zeus, Cool! We will have a digging party.

  22. Masquers
    12:49 pm on June 24th, 2014

    DianeC: So that’s why BSD posts that way…it’s the German Shepard Dog in him.
    I remember Macy’s Mom asking once if there had been a sale on capital letters. snicker.
    Siber: Where would this party take place?

  23. Zeus
    1:14 pm on June 24th, 2014

    We could have the party at my place. I haven’t yet dug up all 16 acres. But someone will need to figure out the combination to get me out of this house.

  24. dawson
    1:14 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Thieves&SiberH: I may dig a hole in solidarity with youse. I like to stick a plant in the hole and put the dirt back in the hole!

    First, I am going to pick the car up after having the snow tires removed. Yes, I am a bit late because I don’t use the car much.

    Vermont Plunderfest is happening!

  25. dawson
    1:18 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Zeus: I didn’t mean to leave you out of the above hole digging!

  26. Siber-H
    1:24 pm on June 24th, 2014

    We could have the digging party at my house because mom thinks it is good for my mental health to dig. I don’t know what difference a few more sled dogs would make.

    Zeus, a few well-placed explosives would get you out of the house, but, remember, you don’t like to leave the house.

  27. Masquers
    1:24 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Dawson: In this part of the country we are penalized if snow tires are not removed by a certain date…usually by the end of March….it is supposed to be bad for the roads.

  28. BearSpiritDog
    1:32 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Siber-H & Co.: Don’t forget there are a couple of Pugs who have had previous Experience Digging in your backyard. Maybe they would like to join in on the fun. On the other paw…Maybe not.

  29. Zeus
    1:36 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Siber, I do like to leave the house, as long as there is a 2-legged with me. Can your mom hang out while we dig?

  30. Siber-H
    1:50 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Sure, Zeus, Mom’s favorite activity in life is to hang out with dogs.

    Bear, The Pugs are, of course, invited and then tomorrow we can all watch the World Cup game.

  31. Zeus
    2:04 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Siber, Your mom is much more cooperative than this mom. Whenever I get into my best, fastest digging mode, she says “Zeus!”, and then for some reason I am distracted for a while.

  32. Siber-H
    2:21 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Zeus, There is nothing in my yard that dogs can harm…like flowers or shrubbery. There are only big trees for shade. I might have exposed a few tree roots, but the trees still seem happy.

  33. Herd of Hounds
    2:55 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Mr. Siber H, sounds like our yard except there a go-zillion trees ( Mom says that is mucho, amigo). Pookey is the only rarely digging dog, and look at DDD’s name…Dirty Daddy Digger Dawg. He likes it digging 🙂
    Mom is home from the library, we have puppy ice cream for dessert and life is G R E A T 🙂

    3:14 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Mon is glad she knows sign language. It’s (correctly used) handy.

  35. Herd of Hounds
    3:31 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Oops, let’s say some sign language 🙂

    Staff, mom smiled when she read yesterday that you like to read romance novels. She thought she was all alone with that. Except for Jasper’s mom. She liked to read them too. Mom started out reading A LOT of romance books, but now reads other types too.

  37. Herd of Hounds
    5:26 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Didn’t we all? Mom started with Mary Stewart in the “60’s” and has gone on the Lady Agatha and more!

  38. Diane C.
    6:25 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Digging friends–would you be available for some grading work (it’s a lot like digging, but you end up smoothing the dirt down so that an entire surface is level)? If so, I have a project for you.
    If Master Rio puts in an appearance, I was shopping for a special gift for a two-legged friend, and found something that made me think of him. Photo attached.

    Masquers: I think you are referring to studded snow tires. Winter tires must be used in B.C. on cars from November sometime until April 15th. They are not studded and do not damage the roads any more than summer tires. They are not meant for dry pavement so will wear out faster, make more noise and get worse gas mileage if used in the summer.

  40. Mollypop's Mom
    7:03 pm on June 24th, 2014

    New York state does not allow studded tires. Visitors crossing the border from northern Ontario, where studded tires are allowed, are stopped at the border.

  41. Herd of Hounds
    7:08 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Something that SoCal has no clue about…TN neither (know it is supposed to be either) Ain’t life grand?

  42. BearSpiritDog
    7:37 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Hounds! Big Bear!

  43. Herd of Hounds
    7:45 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Used to work there…where I got phrogee as a name…actually Running Springs.

  44. Diane C.
    7:48 pm on June 24th, 2014

    HOH–Yeah–studded tires? I wear studs in my ears sometimes (dogs refuse to, though).

    Grizz and I made it to Plunderfest, Vermont! Vermont is just beautiful! The Royal Mum, and the Storyteller were already there when we arrived. I met Tupper and Gilly! I gave them some treats, rubbed some tummies, and played with them. I think Teddy remembered me! When I first met him he was a pup. Boy, he is really big now! It was good to see Teddy’s mom and pop, too. I gave Teddy a great big bone.

    We had a wonderful salad for lunch, and then we had cawfee and ice cream with fresh strawberries.

    And guess who I met? Rio managed to escape from his back yard, and hitch a ride with the Royals.

    It was a lot of fun!

    I have to figure out how to get my pictures from my iPhone to this here iPad.

  46. Wose-the small and meek
    8:33 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Forgot. I got the Royals stamp in my passport, and a very special butterfly stamp too!

    8:38 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Thank you, Spence. You make the Plunderers possible, and quilts,
    and auctions, and…and…

    Mom reads romance novels. She’ll read anything that’s well-written.

    Hi, Wose. Wish we were all with you in VT.

  48. Tupper and Gilly
    8:39 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Hi everyone. We are home after a Grand Day in Vermont. It was absolutely wonderful in every possible way, but there wasn’t
    T any internet up there, so we had to get home to post photos.

    We have to humbly admit that we were the hit of the party. OK, so Teddy was a big hit too. But we were simply adorable.

    And here’s the proof.

  49. Tupper and Gilly
    8:43 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Teddy Ruff Rider was a great host. He showed us all over the yard and we ran and ran and ran and ran.

  50. Tupper and Gilly
    8:45 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Teddy’s Mom gives the best tummies ever!

  51. Masquers
    8:47 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Rose! I’m with Blukat. Wish we were there too.
    Royals, Rose, Teddy & Riö…you all look great!

  52. Tupper and Gilly
    8:47 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Teddy got a special surprise guest

  53. Tupper and Gilly
    8:50 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Wose and Grizz are the best. They brought us chicken snacks and give great ear rubs

  54. Barb & Maggie
    8:51 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Great pictures! The flowers in front of Teddy are beautiful. Is that at a resort? Teddy has grown into a handsome young man who can soon fill Wookie’s paw prints. Are Tupper and Gilly in love?
    Glad Rio was able to sneak away and join the group.

  55. c.hobbit
    8:52 pm on June 24th, 2014

    T&G: where are you in the alleged running photo? heh, heh
    Rose: I thought you said you had gotten fluffy! You look tiny.
    Rio: Did you just fart? It looks like 2 of the 3 dogs are distancing themselves from you.

  56. Herd of Hounds
    8:55 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Rio, you are as handsome as ever. Glad you got to yet another Plunderfest!

  57. Masquers
    8:55 pm on June 24th, 2014

    DebbieLM giving Royal tummies and TeddyRR saying hi to a new friend.
    Great fotos all.

  58. Tupper and Gilly
    8:56 pm on June 24th, 2014

    We had such a wonderful time. Teddy’s folks are great hosts. Mama/said the salad for lunch was incredible; just packed with fresh,elegant and delicious ingredients
    The house up in Vermont is beautiful. There are incredible views in every direction.
    Rio hated to leave.

  59. Herd of Hounds
    9:03 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Rio, et al, Plunderfest Vermont looks like tons of fun 🙂 Wish we could have been there 🙂

  60. Herd of Hounds
    9:07 pm on June 24th, 2014

    CHobbit, did Rio fart? Does a bear make caca in the woods? Good googa mooga of course he did!

  61. Tupper and Gilly
    9:07 pm on June 24th, 2014

    CHobbit – trust us, we were running. We were running so fast, the camera couldn’t keep up!

    And we snored all the way back home.

  62. Herd of Hounds
    9:12 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Sounds like a good time was had by all Plunderers!

  63. Mollypop's Mom
    9:12 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Loulou was watching to make sure that Rio was not in her carry bag.

  64. Barb & Maggie
    9:14 pm on June 24th, 2014

    We are going to ask again. Is that a resort or Teddy’s folk’s vacation home? The views are breathtaking.

  65. Tupper and Gilly
    9:19 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Barb – this is a single home on top of a hill. The flower gardens around the property are spectacular, and there are wide sweeping lawns all around the house. The house is gorgeous with wide plank floors, built in china cabinets, and windows looking out over the hills.
    What a vacation home!

  66. BooBear
    9:23 pm on June 24th, 2014

    One of these days….Mom and Dad will make it to a plunderfest!

    Great pictures of everybody.

  67. Herd of Hounds
    9:36 pm on June 24th, 2014

    What a day…Spence with a video to start and on, and on, and finally the Vermont Plunderfest!

  68. Tupper's Mama
    9:44 pm on June 24th, 2014

    One last shot. What a face

  69. Barb & Maggie
    9:45 pm on June 24th, 2014

    T & G, How long of a drive is it from the vacation house to your home?

    Maybe next year we should all rent the house for a week and have a giant Plunder Gathering.

  70. Riö – The Evil Pug
    9:51 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Vermont!…Was great!…snort!…I want to go back every year. My friend says next year she gets to go too…heh!heh!….We will see about that…chuffle!

  71. Riö – The Evil Pug

  72. Herd of Hounds
    9:53 pm on June 24th, 2014

    What a big corgi smile 🙂 Our mom says she is ready for nighty night after shelving the juvenile books at the branch library today…oh, her aching hips!!

  73. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:07 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Rose!…That one photo of me looking over Vermont Chet-Style would be a good one for the Calendar, right?…heh!heh!

  74. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:14 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Teddy!…Did youse guys see the size of Teddy’s tail?…snort!…He thought my tail was pretty sweet too and wondered how I got it so tightly wound-up everyday…chorkel!

  75. Barb & Maggie
    10:17 pm on June 24th, 2014

    You’re right, that picture should definitely be in the calendar.

    We are taking our book, In Dog We Trust, and heading off to dream land.

  76. dawson
    10:20 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Those are great pictures of the Vermont Plunderfest. What a gorgeous setting and happy, beautiful 2 and 4 leggeds.

  77. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:47 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Quilt!…Wow! I am still on the Quilt…heh!heh!…I thought by now Spence would have cut me out of that ole Quilt…snort!…He probably can’t reach that high…heh!heh!

  78. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:06 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Leg-Humper!…grunt!….Diane, you have me confused with someone who has energy and stuff I don’t got anymore…heh!heh!…Even the younger pug here, Beau, has no interest in anyone’s legs…chorkel!…Pugs do not want or need to work that hard…heh!

  79. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:21 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Game!…There must have been a rain delay because this game is only in the 6th inning and it should have started almost 3 hours ago…grunt!…We were out and about and did not see the start of it all…sniff!…Anyhoo, we can stay up just a little bit longer so if anyone wants to chit-shat, this is the tick-tock count-down time…grump!

  80. Tupper's Mama
    11:35 pm on June 24th, 2014

    Sorry Rio- we are already asleep after our big day.

  81. Staff
    12:25 am on June 25th, 2014

    I should be in bed but I just had to catch up with the plunderfest two and four legged celebrants. Oh it is so beautiful and everyone looks so happy. sniff. I’ll come next year also Rio, if you will…nighty noodles.
