    Spence: Where do you get the energy? Anyway, have fun.

    Good morning all.

    Yikes Chet! Are you still doing the 12th in Northampton?

    Morning B.Stover.

    Good morning B and Melanie!

    Beautiful day here in Westchester County!

    Hey, would youse guys know if I called up one of these bookstores, would they ship a signed copy of AFOC to me?

    Hope everyone has a great day!

  4. Rose
    9:29 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Rio! Your Rockies are on a roll! I guess it isn’t hard to beat the Mets right know! heh!

  5. OleyHowlers
    9:36 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Carpola! None of those are anywhere near us!

  6. Princess Sam
    9:47 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Why can’t there be a signing in Niagara Falls? People from Canada would love it too.

    Two things. Heard from YSAS and he’s finally finished working as an extra for that one show. “Person of Interest”. I guess they got tired of him hanging around and gave him a death scene. He’s very pleased.

    I also heard from Golinka. It is very difficult for to get on line because someone is selling Wi-fi and has messed up the wi-fi in the area. The other sellers who use apps on the smart phones are not pleased because they can’t process the credit cards very well. On the other paw, she and the Storyteller are doing great at the show.

    Time to go do things, BBL

    Talk!…I wonder what new things he talks about…sniff!…Me?Me?Me?…heh!…My friend says its a good thing he is not coming near us because she can’t take a day off work till 2015 or something ridiculous like that…grumble!

  10. Terry Ballard
    10:01 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Scottsdale – back to the scene of the crime. Here’s a taste of Arizona to get everyone in the mood.

  11. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:03 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Scottsdale!…Looks like Mars….sniff!

  12. Terry Ballard
    10:08 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Actually, Monument Valley, far to the north of Scottsdale. May have been featured in one of the books though. Scottsdale itself is mainly very posh.

  13. B.Stover
    10:08 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Rose: If I remember correctly, Poison Pen will ship a signed copy.

  14. OleyHowlers
    10:14 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Mom has always wanted to go to Scottsdale because of all the big Arab Horse farms there. And the Scottsdale Show is one of the biggest.

  15. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:21 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Gallery!…Youse guys should check out Liz’s new website…snort!…Her gallery is awesome!


  16. Rose
    10:25 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Thanks for the info, B!

  17. Tupper and Gilly
    10:29 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Good morning all. So far the WiFi pirates haven’t turned on yet. Maybe the fried pickles got them.
    Have a good day everyone.

  18. Tupper and Gilly
    10:30 am on August 22nd, 2012

    HI WOSE!! Only 3 more days!

  19. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:41 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Badge!…Rose you better wear your Chet The Dog ID Badge this weekend so Golinka will recognise you when you sneak up on her….snorkel!

  20. Siber-H
    10:53 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Spence’s appearance is Scottsdale is a live stream event. I will have to look up who the other guy is that is appearing with him.

    Thanks for the photo of Monument Valley Terry. Mom spent a lot of time exploring it when she was younger…before it became “civilized”.

  21. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:01 am on August 22nd, 2012

    SiberH!…Live stream event!…Kool!…It will be as if we are there. (Not!)…grunt!

    11:09 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Red Butte . . .

    LizF, love your website. I love love love At the Beach the Reg. I think he must have been dancing . . .

    KatScan back. Nothing is worse. Whew . . .

    11:12 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Woooo…we’re hitting the ground running this morning with the tour schedule, info on Liz’s gallery and signed copies of AFOC.
    Terry, thanks for setting the mood.

    Wose: A beautiful sunny day here in the Pacific NW also.

    Here’s to another fabulous day for Golinka and the Storyteller. (And yes, you are wise to steer clear of those hotdogs and fried pickles!)

    Melanie: Thank Dog!

    BBL (after breakfast)

  24. B.Stover
    11:13 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Good news Melanie.

    I love Liz’s gallery. Thanks Rio.

  25. Melanie
    11:15 am on August 22nd, 2012

    For those of the Nation Within the Nation (not sure about kats):
    A friend of mine sent me this website about the hemlock maneuver for dogs.


  26. Melanie
    11:16 am on August 22nd, 2012

    For Kats, this has been circulating on Facebook . . .

  27. B.Stover
    11:19 am on August 22nd, 2012

    In the Paris series, Liz includes macaroons. They are so good!

  28. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:21 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Artwork!…I went out to Liz’s gallery last week and it was broken…snort!…So she has been busy re-building it, not unlike what the Giants are doing to their Cabin In the Woods, so this morning she let me know it was complete….heh!…Looks great!

  29. Staff
    11:30 am on August 22nd, 2012

    I went to Murder by the Book since it was the earliest one after the book is released. They have done his books for me before and I was pleased. They even had my address on file so it only took me about a minute.

    When you call be sure to know what you want Chet/Spence/Peter to sign your book with. Mine is “Feel the Breeze” snicker.

    Their phone number is at the top of the page.

    You have a ChettheDog ID don’t you? I seem to remember a pic of you sitting on some steps.

  30. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:37 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Staff!…Our Mystery Surprise Package still has not arrived!…grunt!…Neither has our signed copy of A Fistful Of Collars…wheeze!…Whats up with all of that, I ask youse?…sniff!

  31. Staff
    11:40 am on August 22nd, 2012

    Well, the mystery surprise package did not get mailed until yesterday morning. That is Tuesday. It is highly unlikely that it would have gotten to you already since they don’t pick up mail in Clifford until 4 p.m.

    Patience Grasshopper.

  32. c.hobbit
    12:07 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    This is a test. I posted twice yesterday hours apart and neither post appeared on the blog. Each time there was no indication that my posting didn’t make it through or was being moderated. Let’s see what happens today

  33. Barb & Maggie
    12:22 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Good morning or afternoon everyone. Busy, busy here.

    Did get a chance to take a coffee break this morning and read Dan’s story. Very well done and poignant as well. Thank you Dan for sharing it and Melanie for posting it.

    Got a call from Pat. She is not sure she can meet for lunch today, so how about Friday? Barb said we are moving Friday. Ooops! Barb told her not to stress about it if she can’t work it in. haahaahaahaahaa!

  34. Rose
    12:32 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Staff, yes I do have a Chet the Dog ID. The steps I am sitting on are the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Thanks for the info!

    T&G, no worries I’ll have my tags on!

  35. Staff
    12:33 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Oh Barb,
    Maybe you should have sent out invitations with a SAVE THE DAY card included.

    Good luck!

  36. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:46 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Barb!…I’m pretty sure you will have more fun without her there…snorkel!

  37. BearSpiritDog
    12:52 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: Soon you will be far, far away from all that workplace craziness. Two more days!

    Wose: We finished your book I Thought You Were Dead last night. Once into it just had to keep going…library book deadline be damned. Wookie gave it a very good recommendation and with good reason. Does anyone else want to read it? If not I will return the book to you.

  38. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:57 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Bear!…I Thought You Were Dead is exactly what I think every time you post out here…heh!heh!

  39. Rose
    1:05 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Bear, I’m so glad you liked the book! Did you write something inside the book? That was my request.

    Rio, or anyone else who may want to read the book, here is the synopsis:


  40. Rose
    1:10 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    T&G, I’m am so looking forward to meeting youse guys. Supposed to be another lovely day, too!

    Rio, if I were pug sized, I could sneak up on anyone, but unfortunately, I am not as low to the ground as you. I will, however, have my letters of transit with me…..

  41. BearSpiritDog
    1:10 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Rio: sniff

  42. mlaiuppa
    1:32 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    YAY! Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego is my store. See you Sept. 17.

    (BTW) The rodents trying to revive the mouse are hooded rats, not mice. Still cute. I used to have one. Madame Curious.)

  43. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:53 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Bear!…I thought you would think that was funny…snort!…The way you eat if you were alive they couldn’t afford to keep you…chorkel!

  44. dawson
    1:59 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    BearSpiritDog: I would like to read that book. Do you have my Mpls. address?
    Person of Interest! I watch that show. Now I will get to see YSAS dead, poor guy. Second time he’s been dead this year (that I know of)!
    Terry: Wow! That is just how Chet described it. I would love to see that terrain in person some day.
    I have to check out LizF’s new site.

  45. Melanie
    2:13 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    If I take fresh blueberries, throw them in the blender, add a bit of liquid and then reduce, will they get sweet?


  46. OleyHowlers
    2:18 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    That book sounds really good! We want to read it too.

    and sorry, BSD, but Rio did make us giggle.

  47. Gus and BooBear
    2:22 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Person of Interest is our very favorite show! We will be watching for YSAS!

    Melanie, tell Dan Mom was very moved by his story. Brought back lots of memories of visiting with her dad.

    Does reading and signing mean no Q&A?

  48. BearSpiritDog
    2:32 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Rio: It isn’t my fault someone is always mentioning food. And many times the culprit is you when describing a tasty meal your Friend has prepared. Guys like me get hungry.

    Dawson: The book will be heading your way tomorrow. I do have your current Mpls address.
    Loved the Dorg print you bought from Liz earlier this year.
    When do you return to the northern climes?

  49. BearSpiritDog
    2:34 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Food. Speaking of which, isn’t it about time for lunch?

  50. SnowBella
    2:51 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Oh my dorg! Liz’s site, not to mention her work, is amazing. Such talent!

    I can only imagine the number of calories one burns crossing from one side of the Bridge to the other.

  51. BearSpiritDog
    3:04 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Melanie: We have our blueberries with cream. They are also very good in a smoothie. The blueberries on the 3 bushes in the yard are beginning to ripen and we are now looking forward to some tasty desserts!

  52. Barb & Maggie
    3:05 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Former boss lady called at 12:45 and said she wasn’t making lunch. She said eat something light and then meet her and her husband for 5:00 early dinner. Barb usually doesn’t eat till 7:00 to 8:00, but that’s OK. She will make an exception so she can enjoy Pat’s company one last time. At least her husband will be along to dilute the conversation.

  53. OleyHowlers
    3:09 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Barb, Enjoy ! or try to … hope the dinner is good

    Our folks eat blueberries in their breakfast yogurt while they are in season. They claim they are delish.

  54. Melanie
    3:12 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Good luck Barb. I think you should take Maggie with you. Pat enjoys her so much. snicker.

    Thanks for all the tips on the blueberries.

  55. Masquers
    3:16 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Maliuppa: From San Diego to Seattle on the 18th. The Whirlwind Tour continues!
    Spence, Chet and Admin: Thank you for the listing!

  56. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:18 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Puppies!…The Service puppies are in full play mode right now…snorkel!…Too funny!..heh!

  57. Melanie
    3:19 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Tis the season of catalogs. Love the art museum catalogs. The one this morning had a book by Tim Flach titled “DOGS”. LOVE the front cover!

  58. Melanie
    3:19 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Which I was actually going to post. Jeez . . .

  59. dawson
    3:21 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    I’m heading back North around the 1st of October.

    White Wings has finally returned home. I haven’t opened the package yet but it I have received. Heh!

    So far behind…I still haven’t made it to Liz’s new site. I wonder if I will find a companion for Dorg.

  60. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:21 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Wookies!…It’s like watching a bunch of little Wookie-monsters climbing around…heh!heh!

  61. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:23 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Media!…Mail takes 5 days at least…snort!…Good to know. Dawson, I didn’t include a surprise gift or anything, if thats what you are expecting…heh!heh!

  62. Melanie
    3:28 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Dawson, I loved Reg at the Beach (not the same name but something like). He was dancing!

  63. Masquers
    3:54 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Melanie: Dog on the runway!
    Catalogs. Just received the first Christmas catalog from Leaning Tree.

    Riö: The picture Terry posted earlier does indeed look like Mars. Heh.

    Rose: Two more are lined up for the book. Guess it won’t be returning to you so soon after all.

  64. SnowBella
    3:57 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    I didn’t see Willow on the list of your dates. I am sure it is scheduled for late February/ early March. Rio, do you think you could leave your yard to help me build a bookstore between now and then?

  65. dawson
    4:07 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Melanie: I’ve seen that Rastafarian dog at the Westminster Dog Show. I want one but only if they come with a personal hairdresser.
    Reg at the Beach: That is the first picture I clicked on at Liz’z site. I really, really like it. Of course, Dorg is still the best picture there. Reg would dance circles around Dorg.

  66. Melanie
    4:11 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Dawson, once they get the dreads it’s no keep up!

    Film for the 4 pm show? Puss in Boots.


  67. Mollypop's Mom
    4:13 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Rio – the little Wookies were out of the pen this morning. They all got to play with the big dogs. It was bedlam!

  68. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:21 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Bedlam!…Beau and I were watching the lil’wookies while they were out of their pen and we were chorkeling inbetween sneezing…heh!…Did you see the one guy trying to go UP the slide….guffaw!

  69. Barb & Maggie
    4:30 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Love that dog on the cover. What a shot!

    We feel so fortunate – the only midwest city that PA/SQ is visiting is Naperville. It is about an hour or hour and 1/2 from Kelly’s. I think Lily and Baye are going to go. Baye loves the Ingrid series and Robbie, so she would like to meet him. Lily hasn’t read them yet, but she has been featured on the blog several times, so Barb thought it would be fun for her to go.

  70. SnowBella
    4:34 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Macy: Please check your SDD.

  71. Mollypop's Mom
    4:36 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Rio – I meant the little Wookies were out of their outdoor pen. All six of them were out in the YARD playing with the big dogs.

  72. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:52 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Mollys Mom!…We saw that!…heh!heh!…Beau wanted to leave our yard after watching them…sniff!…But he was stopped immediately by the locked gate…heh!

  73. Mollypop's Mom
    5:18 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    The little Wookies were out in the yard again. Now they’re all being rounded up and put back in the pen.

  74. Princess Sam
    5:29 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Those little Wookies don’t even have to worry about hawks.

  75. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:53 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Hawks!…I’d like to see a bird try and carry one of those guys away…heh!…They are growing bigger by the minute…snort!

  76. Wose
    7:11 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Masquers, I am very happy that my book is making the U.S. tour. I just hope everyone will remember to write a little something in there. It will be so kool to get the book back with messages inside.

  77. Melanie
    7:13 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    “Puss in Boots” was good. Gave a whole new take on Fairy Tales!

    Now dinner is done, dishes are washing, the garden is being watered, Dan and Zoe have gone to bed. It’s my time.

    I started “My Time” by doing battle with the sprinkler. I lost 3 times, but I got it working on the 4th. I’m very wet though.

  78. Liz
    7:18 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Hey everyone! Thanks Rio for the posting and I’m glad y’all liked the piccies. Cricket used to play at the beach with Reg when she was little, and Melanie you’re right, he was dancing – he loooooved the beach.

    I wonder how soon that episode of Person of Interest will get here? When will it show in the US?

    B, macarons…aren’t they delumptious? We ate so many of them in Paris a couple of years ago.

    No book signing in Australia? Not one??

  79. SnowBella
    7:20 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Liz: Don’t lose faith. I realized that the title of today’s post says almost complete. I’m sure our necks of the wood will be added. I’m just sure of it.

  80. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:25 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Liz!…You’ve got as good a chance as Colorado does…heh!heh!…Nada.

  81. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:38 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Mets!…Its an early game again tonight…heh!…SiberH should be able to watch this one too! He gets all riled up about those late games on the west coast…snorkel!…This game started at 4:30 our time…sniff! …Mets are ahead (for now).

  82. Siber-H
    7:45 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    I’m here and watching the game. Love these early games!

  83. Princess Sam
    7:53 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Rebecca lives at the top of the world and Liz lives at the bottom. I hope Spence has a lot of frequent flier miles.

  84. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    8:20 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    My mom and dad are just loving all the comments about the little Wookies. They actually never saw a little me, as I was 8 months when I first got to my forever home, and by then I was already pretty much full grown and, according to them, I was already quite a handfull, whatever that means.
    Also, they have been acting a little strange recently. My dad rediscovered the all 60’s channel on XM/Sirius and that is all they have been listening to recently, singing along and dancing to the music a lot, and saying stuff like that was the best music ever. As for as I can tell though, it’s just rock and roll to me.

  85. Princess Sam
    8:25 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    I almost forgot – today is my birthday! Mom and Dad came home with a toy for me and my girl sang to me on face chat.

  86. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:30 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Wookie!…heh!snort!heh!…good one…har!

    Face-Chat!…Do you mean Skype, lil’ Sammie?…snort!…I still laugh, and I never laugh, when I think of Spencer trying to Skype with some kids and being too low in the chair for them to see him…chorkel!

  87. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:31 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Birthday!…How old are you lil Sammie?…sniff!….I always tell them, I’m old enough to know better but young enough not to care…heh!heh! burp!

  88. Liz
    8:33 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Happy birthday Princess!

    R, if Spence goes as far as you he may as well come here, it’s not really much further.

  89. Princess Sam
    8:42 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Im four years old!

  90. B.Stover
    8:42 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Happy Birthday Sam!

  91. Siber-H
    8:42 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Happy Birthday Princess Sam!!

    Ah Ha The score is now tied

  92. SnowBella
    8:44 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    Wookie, tell your mom and dad that Barb will shoot off a detailed email to their SDD in the morning.

    We thought Siber only turned blue when Natasha gets in a snit with him….

    Hi everyone. Day 2 of the Really Long Shew. It wasn’t as crowded today, but everyone had already told us that it would be that way. The first day, Tuesday, is busy for the opening. Then the weeekend starts winding up on Thursday, and gets crazy hectic busy on Saturday. But Wednesday is a little slower. Which was fine with us as it meant shorter lines at the restrooms – always an important factor to us show folk.

    And today’s culinary perusing include:
    -Deep fried, batter covered, spaghetti and meatballs on a stick
    -Rice, mixed with ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan cheese, rolled in breadcrumbs and then, you guessed it – deep fried
    -Barbeque Sundae – layers of barbequed meat, beans and coleslaw in a tall, see thru cup, topped with a barbeque rib

    (we settled for egg sandwiches from the church kitchen for breakfast, and Greek salads with grilled chicken for lunch/dinner.
    Then hot fudge sundaes later on – just cuz we deserved it.

    But deep fried spaghetti on a stick? Really? I ask you….

    11:27 pm on August 22nd, 2012

    And now – the bed is calling….
    g’night everyone.
    G’day Liz – haven’t been able to get to see your wib site yet, but can’t wait to see it. You ROCK!

    Happy Birthday Sammie,
    Staff just learned that it was my 10th birthday on August 16th. I guess she didn’t know that before but my Birth Mom told Mr.Staff at the Post Office this week. So they gave my some treats and some catnip for a late celebration.
    Alice got some too because she was pushing in. Such a hussy.

    Goodnight!…I have been told in no-uncertain-terms it is time to go up to my cool soft bed where all my baseball toys are and settle in for the night….whiff!…This will entail many circling circles before I find exact–ly the right place to flop down in the midst of my collection….wuffle!…Always worth the effort, never a second thought…awww.

    Happy day Sammie ! We are about the same age. Are you a dwarf?

    Ummmmmm fried pickles are the best, especially with ranch dipping sauce.

    We like Person of Interest too. Waiting anxiously for dead guy. Uh Our dead guy, since there is one on nearly every show.

    search for names like “Sounds Scary”, “Fear of Fireworks” or
    “CLIX Noises and Sounds”. If all else fails, do not hesitate to get help by enrolling your dachshund on an obedience class in a
    qualified dog training school. You can use the right toys for training and helping your dog to respond to you for obedience and
    other needs.
