Spoiler Alert

Sunday. How do I know? Elvis gospel on Sirius/XM. “How many singers around today will have their own channels decades after they’re gone?” Bernie says. No idea. In fact, I don’t understand the question. But it must be important or Bernie wouldn’t have asked it.

Why does it say spoiler alert up at the top? Because I was going to post something different today, a scene from book three that this being Sunday reminded me of. But then the whole Elvis gospel thing started up and here we are! It’s a long weekend, right? Have fun, everybody. We’ll do the book three scene tomorrow. And that’s a promise, or pretty close.

Hey – all of a sudden we’ve got a big commotion. Bernie’s running around, getting dressed, kind of in a panic, although Bernie never panics. “Oh my God, Chet,” he says. “I forgot Valentine’s Day.”

Valentine? Was there a perp of that name in our past? If so, look out Mister Valentine. Your number’s up.

    Happy Valetines day! Chet, tell Bernie to get exotic flowers for Suzie, everybody always gives flowers to people on this day. Megan,yesterday, got some for our neighbor, who hurt his ankle somehow. She has to walk Sasha, their dog. Anyways, she also gave some to this old couple, too, but she said it was embarrising.Apparently, it was the old woman's birthday, and she asked Megan how she new it was her birthday. The funny thing was Megan didn't know, she just said it was for Valentines day, said bye, and walked away. She is still ranting about it now!

    Poor Bernie – I'm sure Suzie knows what to expect by now though…

    Mags – YOU'RE 100% RIGHT, these guys pretty much make us sick, don't even get me started on what they do to dogs & cats in China – shudder…..but on to Valentine's…

    Glad everyone's having a nice Valentine's Day, after some delicious scrambled eggs, Mom gave me a really special treat of carob chips – the special chocolate for dogs that won't make us sick….awesome stuff!

    A-Kat, maybe your staff could give you a little extra catnip so you won't feel left out?

    Mom gave us some sausage and eggs for breakfast, and later we get a chew strip, but we get treats almost everyday, cause we are spoiled. Bernie could get some good dark chocolate and a nice red wine, cause in DOG ON IT, Bernie and Suzie drank some red wine together. Not sure on the details, but I think Bernie spilled some on Suzie.

    Guys! Guess what! No, dont guess. Megan found me to take me for a walk! No stupid outfit! She took me in an enclosed area, and let me loose. She threw snowballs and I caught them…..sort of! And when it was time to go, I let her chase me. For like 5 minutes. And she slipped like 30 times. She said she couldnt feel her fingers and I got scared. Then she took me home, and I think she forgot about the heart costume. Wait a second……no, dont look for it in the mall! Dont cdhuigygskvbhiccswgjiob dhfq

    Bernie is in big trouble! Hey, Rio, what did you give Alice for Valentine’s Day?

  12. Barb & Maggie
    10:23 am on February 14th, 2010

    Chet, Tell Bernie not to make a steak for Suzie, an account of she's a vegetarian, so he should make one for you instead. Happy V-Day to all. Hey Rio, Did you know today is also the Chinese New Year? Mom's dog book says Pugs used to be mastiffs a long time ago in China, and that they are charming and intelligent, with even tempers and happy, lively personalities. Is this all true? Maggie

    We really love the Olympics, all escept for 1 guy. Me and Mom don’t like that Johnny Weir guy at all. He says “the crazy fur people” don’t like his outfits cause he likes to put pieces of animals on them. He says he cares more about his outfits then those animals. He likes to be flamboyant, well I say he can be totally flamboyant with faux fur, flowers or any kind of foo-foo he wants, and skip the whold dead animal thing. Am I right or what?

    Jasmine, are you the very cute baby or the Mom? I bet you are going to end up as a very big dog some day.

    Our V-Day is really pretty and Mom opened all the windows so we can bird watch with sound and smell. We also got whipped cream this morning (of course we get that every day so it's not something special).

    A-kat, on Cats 101 on the Animal Planet Mom saw a super way to give us cats treats. They put treats in containers that roll around on the floor with a small hole in it and we get to dig the treat out. Said it helps satisfy our "hunting" instinct…we think it just sounds like fun.

    Happy V-Day, Chet, Bernie, Spence and even Admin!! And go team USA in the Olympics…I bet Chet would have made the team if there was a ball fetching category.

    Happy Valentine’s Day, Chet! I wish I could send you a crate of biscuits, but I’ll send you a virtual hug, instead!

    Happy Valentine's Day All!

    Been working on youngest son's (the struggling actor) web site this week. Jeez. So I'm trying to up load it last night when Zoë says "I hope you don't mind but I haven't done anything for V-Day for you or your father, the only thing I've done is get bones for the dogs." Stunned silence from me. "Oh, Yeah . . ." I said, thinking of my two kids, their signficant others, cousins, and friends.

    Then I remembered that the week before I had signed up to send V-Day on V-Day. I am so smart!!!

    So Chet, tell Bernie about e-cards. They are wonderful.

    Also I'm glad people are enjoying the Newf stories. And someone read my log???


    Have a Happy Sweet Day!

    Confessions from JDawson

    We've only read 2 chapters of Dog On It so far because…we are in the process of finishing a book we'd started before I bought Chet's books. I easily talked Lonnie into substituting Dog On It for the other book one day and Gord had not much choice. Lonnie was hooked from the first page, she was laughing and snorting like Rio, but Gord is a macho 2 legged male with pre-conceived notions about listening to Chet's point of view -His eyes kept rolling around as I read… so we have to finish the other book before we continue with Dog On It. Meanwhile, thanks for the Blog, Chet. Everytime I go to the Blog I find a new thing. Like:

    WHAT? Alice Johnson was on her way to Fort Nelson? She probably got stopped at the Vancouver border because of the Olympics and sent back.

    Rio: Alice Johnson is all bluff and if you all took the time to know and understand where she's come from – well, you wouldn't be so hard on her. I've actually witnessed her being pushed around by a 90 year old grandma. She's just trying to protect herself by acting all tough. I do think she touches up her photos to look more beautiful (low self esteem).

    Cosmo: Lonnie appreciates that the trip would be too long and hard for you and settles for seeing your wonderful photos. Also our facility does not allow 4 leggeds…sad but true. They say some people are allergic. Some people may be but they don't live here so we ignore the rules, especially on weekends when the rule-makers are gone.

    Jasmine – such a lovely ball of fur you are – we had a visit from one that looks a lot like you yesterday – the size of your paws are impressive. Lonnie gave him lots of hugs and Gord watched from his door.

    Had bacon this morning – yummy and now for some raspberry cheesecake.

    Jasmine –

    Uh-oh Bernie,
    I suppose we could have reminded him. That is what staff does with her hubbie. She also reminds people at work. But she only reminds the male people. Why is that do you think?

    Any way she got a valentine card with pictures of two cats on it. One was blonde and one was a calico. She thought that was a very nice choice in a valentines day card. She said it showed he was thinking about her. She also noticed he paid more than 99 cents which is usually his top price for cards.

    And then this morning we had a lovely lap/nap on the bed. Those have been rare lately since she is working 6 days a week. So, things look good today.
    How is it going for Cosmo, Mollypop, Rio and Gus and Boobear? Do you get treats for valentines day? I saw those homemade dog treats from KAF and was jealous. Nothing like that for cats.

    A-Kat – My Valentine’s Day has so far been very yummy. After some bacon after breakfast, Mom filled my kong with treats and topped it off with peanut butter. Oh boy! This is something that you poor cats are missing and I think you would like this a lot. Later Mom is going to bake cookies. Again, yum yum.

    Grumble!… here’s something that’s almost as fun to watch as The Olympics!…Snort!…

    Heeee, heeee, Rio love that screen cleaning dude!

    Our visit with Fu last week had to be postponed, but I'll keep trying to get him over here. Like I told you Rio, he's pretty snobby, he has a staff like A-Kat & Alice, you suuurrrree you want to meet him?

    2:18 pm on February 14th, 2010

    I confess! Could not wait another day – all the talk of treats today made me want one, so I've started reading Thereby Hangs a Tail. I was just going to read one page but….

    Rio, nice use of 'disconfublated'! And calm down, we need a plan to figure out when book 3 is coming out! Spence is going down!!!! To much sugar!!!! Catch me if u can, Megan!!!!! Hey, don't call me that…..ugh, gotta go…

  26. Rio - The Evil Pug
    2:59 pm on February 14th, 2010

    Cosmo!… Snobby?… FU is Snobby?…Snort!…well with a name like that, maybe he has an attitude…wheeze!…what does he do all day long??…Grunt!!…maybe he has a position of importance along with an attitude problem…Snuff!…how about me seeing his photo first…grunt!… and then I will decide what to do….Snort!.

    Hi there Rio, Alice Johnson is in the blogging now, you can stop worrying.

    Staff just got off the phone with Jenifer Dawson. Jenifer now states that she is on page 61 of THAT and expects to finish it tonight or tomorrow morning. Too bad that Lonnie will have to wait for DogOnIt now while Gord gets his other book fix. However raspberry cheesecake ought to cure a little bit of her frustration. I know it would work for my staff.

    Hey there JD that's enough of the telling tales stuff. Pretty soon you will be mentioning my starving kittenhood in the woods. Geeezzz. Zip a lip lady! Show some restraint. Alice Johnson is one tough cat and she and Rio get along just fine.

    Rrriigghhhhtt Rioooo honey?

    Alice!…We have a Love-Hate relationship!…Snort!…mostly Hate…but we understand each other, right Alice?…Grrrrr!….You just keep your little bitty self out of trouble and all will be calm…Grunt!!…I hear you touch-up your photo’s…Snort!!… you are probably a plain ole Tabby Kat pretending to be a Blonde Bombshell!..heh…heh…

    Alice and Rio should get a room– they're fighting like — ba-dumb, ching!

    Okay. It's so bad I won't say it. Happy wags from Wojo on this Valentine's Day– as far as he's concerned, every day is for love. Hope everyone's feeling good– me? I feel like tanks have been driving over my back, but that's an improvement, so I'm not complaining– much!

    In honor of the day, snuggle with your furry loved one. (My cats have been sharing the radiators and the top of the padded cat climber all day. I didn't think cats normally condescended to celebrate human holidays, but ours have been really cute, all entertwined and giving each other baths.)

    What ever makes you feel safe, you go with it.

    I hope you got a little something nice for Valentines. I didn't like the throw Rio out the window commment. I for one would really miss your fun sense of humor and your strange bodily function reports.

    Rebec!… no offence, but you are talking out of your ass when you suggest Alice and I…Snort!… are Anything but Nemesis…Grunt!….you are not even a Kat or a Dog, so you have no idea how offensive your last remark was…Growl!…

    Alice!…the only one going out the Window my dear….Snuff!… will be you if we ever meet face to face….Snort!…and remember!…growl!… Agent Wookie knows where you live…Gruff!…

    Alice!… Now tomorrow, Chet is going to reveal a bit of

    Book 3….Grunt!… if anything happens and his plan is averted for some reason!…grrrr!… YOU will be the one we target!! …wheeze!

    Hey Rio, I'll try to get you a photo of Fu this week. Yeah, he does have a 'postion' that he thinks is important – he sits in a cushy office chair all day that says 'executive dog'! Really full of himself he is – but maybe you guys both being pugs and all, he'll make an exception. I guess that'll be my mission for now!

    Alice that is quite a provocative pose, where is Sirius??? He might enjoy the view…

    Hey did you guys hear the story of the skater (I forget his name) earlier that saved his greyhound when he was a kid? What a champ, he's a gold medalist in my book!

  35. Rio - The Evil Pug
    5:12 pm on February 14th, 2010

    Cosmo!…Power Corrupts …snort!…Maybe FU has turned Bad…Grunt!…Alice is such a show-off. Thats not even her real 'color'…gruff!

  36. Rio - The Evil Pug
    5:52 pm on February 14th, 2010

    Growl!…has everybody lost their minds today…Snort!… all this talk talk talk about what, what, what?…Grumble!… I have no idea!…Grunt!…. its all very disconfabulated….Gruff! …I wish FU would show up…Snort!….now there’s a guy I could relate to.

  37. Gus & BooBear
