    Good Friday Morning To All!

    I saw this story on the World News last night. I’m glad there was a happy ending!

    BooBear: I was so sorry to about Gus. Sending prayers and comforting, healing thoughts to you.

    Rio, I feel bad that your your friend will miss Laverne and Shirley so.

    Good Morning Rose and All.
    Heartfelt Prayers going out for Gus this morning. BooBear, you too, are in our thoughts. Be strong for your friend.

    BooBear: Can we get an update on Gus? I’ve been thinking about all night.

    Rio: Your handsome pug mug is up top, plus the pain is drying at the auction house and all the finishing touches are complete. Do you have any idea how hard it is to bedazzle a gavel? I do feel the glitter and ribbon are a nice touch.

    We have 20 items up for auction!

    Do not keep cough drops in your pocket when you go into the water.

    Bella – to bedazzle a gavel – simply hold it up to the blog and the Plunderers and all they do. That should bedazzle even the most stoic, unemotional stick that ever was!

    Gus – we are holding your paw across the miles.

    Can’t wait for the auction to start!

    Just read about Gus this morning and am very sad. Our heartfelt prayers going up for Gus. Please pull through this little guy.

    Rio: Checked and responded.

    Auction!….Auction Central is heating up…snort!snort!….Lots to do – lots to do!….Woooooo!…I need way more cawfee!….choo!chooo!

  13. Riö –The Evil Pug
    11:00 am on July 6th, 2012

    Gus!….As excited and anxious as we all are for this amazing Auction – I think we all need to hold Gus up in our prayers and also his maw and paw today as they are dealing with the stress and sadness of caring for a sick, beloved friend….sniffle!

  14. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    11:01 am on July 6th, 2012

    Ditto about what everyone else said about Gus. You are in all of our prayers.

    Good luck to Auction Central. Waiting…

    Hello All. We are checking in for auction news and just learned of Gus’ heart episode. As we sit beneath his and Boo Bear’s fantastic beautiful wind chimes, we feel a connection thru which we are sending all pawsitive thoughts from Howlers and felines alike. Feel better Gus. Chin up, Boo.

  17. Melanie
    11:31 am on July 6th, 2012

    Riö, please check SDD

    Gus: To a fellow feline in distress – praying for the very best.

    Good morning all. I too am thinking of Gus and am anxiously waiting for an update.

  20. Masquers

    Auction anticipation…waiting to pounce!

  21. Snowhook Bella
    12:24 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Masquers: Are you in distress, too or am I reading your post incorrectly?

    Rio is correct. Auction Central is heating up. IVs have been delivered and set up to inject the coffee directly into our brave and tireless volunteers, Rio and Wookie. AC is not for the feint of heart. The thin black ties and black rimmed glasses a la NASA’s mission control have also been delivered. I thought about going with full suits for Wookie and Rio, but I thought Rio’s curly tail would appreciate the freedom that just a tie provides.

  22. Riö –The Evil Pug
    12:30 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Ready!….I’m all suited up, got my reading kool black glasses on and am ready for some Auction Action…snort!….But my friend has to go vacuum the whole house and then mop the kitchen – this is after doing 2 hours of yard work this morning on only one cuppa cawfee…sniff!…I hope she lasts till the Auction…heh!heh!

  23. Masquers
    12:36 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Bella: You either read it wrong or I didn’t make myself clear. Me thinks it is the latter.

  24. Snowhook Bella
    12:39 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Masquers: You are well and that makes me happy.

  25. Snowhook Bella
    1:20 pm on July 6th, 2012

    I wish youse could smell the scent coming from Coach and Bev’s kitchen right now. Bev is making her almost famous almond bark popcorn. Maybe I can convince her to make a batch for AC to munch will they track bids.

  26. Gus and BooBear
    1:23 pm on July 6th, 2012

    BooBear here. No improvement in Gus. He has a vet appt 1st thing in the morning unless emergency care is needed. He is still eating and drinking but his sides and chest heave with each breath and heartbeat. No strength to jump up onto furniture. He is sleeping almost all the time which is probably good for him.

    This episode came on him fairly rapidly. His biggest problem is that each episode leaves him worse… He stabilizes but doesn’t improve. Mom and Dad are very concerned (Mom is a wreck).

    Thank you all for the positive thoughts and prayers. I know they help.

    I am donating a gluten free cheesecake to Auction Central for that needed energy!
    Slightly drooled upon, but wiped off with a drool bib, it is ready for Franklin to blur on over.

  28. Melanie
    1:26 pm on July 6th, 2012

    BooBear, so sorry about Gus.

  29. Snowhook Bella
    1:27 pm on July 6th, 2012

    I know we have a lot going on today, yet is anyone up for a prayer at 900 pm PPST (Plunderer Prayer Standard Time) this evening? It seems to me that Gus, his mom and the others that love him need calm and comforting.

    G&B Mom: Know that the quilt is draped around your shoulders and tucked comfortably around little Gus.

  30. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    1:36 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Bella, we’re in.

  31. Rose
    1:38 pm on July 6th, 2012

    BooBear, so sorry to hear that Gus has not shown improvement. Plunderers are here for you. Worried for you too. I know how stressful the situation is for you and yours, but please keep up your own strength.

  32. Rose
    1:39 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Rebecca, I’m there.

  33. Snowhook Bella
    1:45 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Alright, it seems that 9pm EST has been adopted by us as PPST. It’s nothing like Golinka’s backyard, but I will go to Coach and Bev’s backyard for a prayer at the prescribed time tonight.

  34. Siber-H
    1:53 pm on July 6th, 2012

    We are in Rebecca. I was thinking along the same lines so I am glad you brought it up. I am concerned about Gus, but we know that his family is giving him the best love and care possible.
    They really do need our prayers. sniff

  35. Melanie
    2:02 pm on July 6th, 2012

    I will be there. If not outside then from my bed.

  36. Rose
    2:07 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Rio: You must look very authoriative with those kool black specs on and your skinny black tie.

  37. Tupper and Gilly
    2:18 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Ok – we admit it – we have been just a tad busy around here and haven’t read as much of the blog as we usually do. That said – would someone please tell us how to get to the auction site, with as little snorting and wheezing at our ineptitude as possible?
    Thank you

  38. Riö –The Evil Pug
    2:20 pm on July 6th, 2012

    2:26 pm on July 6th, 2012

    We knew we couldn’t bid til 12 Giant Time, but we thought we could see things before then.
    We won’t be home for HOURS!

    (But we will be in the virtual backyard at 9 tonight with special prayers for our friend Gus.

    3:37 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Rio: Checked and responded. Quick question. Is the Super Bid Tracker supposed to be shake, rattling and rolling like that? I found a wheelbarrow full of what looks like spare parts when I was getting the auction paddles out of the store room. I think I’ll hold on to them just in case.

  46. Riö –The Evil Pug
    3:42 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Tracker!….Wookie has been under the hood of the tracker all afternoon – I think he finally tracked down the problem…grunt!…Rocky and his HillBillie friends were in there trying to use it to predict horse races….wheeze!…They’ve been evacuated and the Tracker has been put back together…snort!whew!

  47. Masquers
    3:56 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Horse races. Snort!

  48. Snowhook Bella
    3:57 pm on July 6th, 2012

    I thought I saw a tail coming out from underneath the tracker. I also heard a range of upset words including snigglefritz and carpola. Thank heavens Wookie is handy with a wrench and hockey tape.

  49. Snowhook Bella
    3:59 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Let the bidding begin! Snowhook’s online auction is officially open. Bid early, bid often—the auction closes this Sunday at noon (AKST).

  52. Rose
    4:20 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Rio, NEVER MIND! Sometimes I feel like the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz!!!!!

  53. Mollypop's Mom
    4:29 pm on July 6th, 2012

    I don’t see the items I donated. What did I do wrong?

  54. Riö –The Evil Pug
    4:35 pm on July 6th, 2012

  55. Mollypop's Mom
    4:40 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Here’s what I did: I got the photos back from Melanie and I forwarded them on to Rebecca’s email, not Snowhooks. That might be the problem.

  56. Rose
    4:41 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Rio, checked and responded!

    Beau is up top!

  57. Riö –The Evil Pug

    BooBear and Gus’s mom: I know how hard it is to hear that labored breathing. Mom has heart problems too and sometimes struggles to breathe like that. My thoughts and prayers are with you and will be at the Plunderer Prayer tonight.

    Quilts! Wookie gets the blue ribbon and Jasper gets most improved!

    I got a few bids in at the auction but now I must go to the wedding eve family BBQ to meet all my soon-to-be new relatives!

  74. Melanie
    7:26 pm on July 6th, 2012

    I have bid on one thing.
    Some things are already out of my price range.

    The soaker hose came today. It soaks.

    Got to sit through a 90 minutes with Dan and the PT person. Dan doesn’t seem to have a body thermostat any longer. Does not like the AC. whew.

    We here would rather not know who we are losing to.
    The ARC has already slipped through my paws. sniff

  78. dawson
    7:39 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Rio: I think my bid for the Arc was lost before I even sent it! Same for the hard carved birdies. I will refresh before bidding.

  79. BooBear
    7:45 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Hi, guys. Update on Gus…no better, but no worse. Mom will take him to the vet tomorrow morning first thing to see if there is anything that can be done about the labored breathing. He is breathing like he has congestive heart failure. Maybe they can ease that somewhat.

    I just KNOW that all the wonderful posts and thoughts you guys sent today helped. Mom checked on her Iphone at work and got all weepy. She appreciates it very, very much. And she knows that the prayer will reach listening ears that will hopefully decide that it is not quite Gus’s time to cross the bridge.

    Thank you.
    BooBear and Karen

    7:48 pm on July 6th, 2012

    I do not want to know who I am in a bidding war with. The last auction we didn’t know until the auction was over with and we discussed it on the blog. That seemed to work out well.

    Mom and I have been having this little disagreement…she wants me to bid on the grammer book in the hopes I will read it and learn something. I want to bid on the bear.

  81. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    7:55 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Siber – Ve think you are already von smart doggy. So, go for teddy bear. Then you have something (safe)to snuggle vhen Natasha is off on dangerous missions.

  82. Siber-H
    7:57 pm on July 6th, 2012

    BooBear and Karen. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. We are holding you close.

  83. OleyHowlers
    8:20 pm on July 6th, 2012

    It is probably a good thing that AC doesn’t let us know who we are bidding against, and we only find out if those of us bidding choose to share. Thing is, no matter what we are bidding for, we always assume that we are in a bidding war with our fellow Sibe. Heh heh!

  84. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:21 pm on July 6th, 2012

    SiberH!…You just gave away what you are going to bid on…grunt!…Whats the difference if I do it or not?…heh!…Actually, It will be best if I refrain from mentioning names I will be pointing out bidding wars that pop-up though…chorkel!

    Birds!…Those hand carved and pawtographed Birds are in big demand…snort! (something like that is okay, right?)…heh!

  85. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:23 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Rain!…We might actually see some rain later, so she is taking me away from Auction Central for a walk…grunt!wheeze!…So don’t get mad if your bids don’t show up for an hour or so…wuffle!sneeze!

  86. Rose
    8:27 pm on July 6th, 2012

    BooBear and Karen: I pray that Gus will be well again. You are all in my prayers.

  87. Buddy and T.C
    8:38 pm on July 6th, 2012

    We have been praying special cat-prayers for our good friend Gus and his best bud Boo all day long. Mommy is going to sit with us to say the special Plunderer Prayer very soon. Please get better, Gus.

  88. BearSpiritDog

    We are holding you and your family close.

    8:39 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Hope you get some rain Riö, not a drop here. Maybe tomorrow afternoon.

    May the bidding remain fierce! I’m going to bed.

    At 9:00 I will be thinking and sending good thoughts and prayers to Gus and Family.

    Meeting you all at 9 – will check back later.

  93. Siber-H
    8:57 pm on July 6th, 2012

    No, Rio, I was only mentioning what I might bid on, but I think letting us know a bidding war is going on is just fine. You did the last auction.

    Mom says Staff would connip if I bid on the bear.

    It is prayer time. We are going outside.

  94. Tupper and Gilly
    9:01 pm on July 6th, 2012

    Creator – we thank you for this wonderful day, a day when friendship and support has surrounded all of us. This day, we have seen the love we all share for each other. We have felt the hugs across the miles, and rejoiced in the smiles that we picture on our friends.

    Creator – one of the sweetest gifts you have given us has been the relationships we have with the four legged ones. Each dog, cat, or horse that has become one with our hearts has been a gift from you, a gift that reminds us that there will always be love available when we need it.

    Creator – we ask you to help us be worthy of the love and devotion that is so freely given by these loyal ones. Let us be as good to each other and as willing to trust and share love as these gentle beings. Even those creatures that have come to us in pain or in fear have allowed their hearts to forgive and forget anything in their past, and learn to trust and give love once again.

    On this night, we ask you to take up in your healing hands the physical heart of our friend Gus, and the emotional heart of our friend Karen. You have allowed Gus to be a part of this world and of Karen’s life for longer than was expected. He has been a blessing and we are grateful for this time. The love that has shone in his eyes, the rumble of his purr, the softness of his coat – all these things are reminders of the gift you have given us with our creatures’ love.

    Creator – it is within your wisdom to know when each of us shall leave this life and join you and the ones who have gone on before. We ask that you be with Gus to guide him to the correct path for his future. If we may continue to have him in our lives, please let it be in a happy and healthy way for Gus. And, we ask that if this is to be the time for Gus to be with our beloved ones in the next world, that his path be gentle and free of pain or fear. Let him come to you with joyful stories of his life here, with songs of happy times with Karen and BooBear. Let us learn from his example how to meet that challenges in our lives, and let our hearts be strong.

    Creator – we thank you for this wonderful day. It has been a day when our bonds of friendship and support have been strongly felt. It is a day when we surround Karen and Gus, Maggie and Dan, Staff and Zoe, Wookie and Grace and all the rest of our family with our love.

  95. BooBear

    Amen. When I suggested the prayer for tonight, I didn’t expect Golinka to write the prayer. Yet, the fact that she took time out of preparing for her upcoming shows makes the prayer more special.

    BooBear: Stay close to your mom, Stay close to your Gus.

    Rio – why don’t you do a personal auction for a date with Siber H(unk)?

    That should raise you enough to buy TWO quilts and still have enough leftover for cervesas.

    Tupper!….You know, you might have something there…heh!heh!…Let me ponder this idea of auctioning off “dates” with the single guys on this here blog…chorkel!

    After being chased inside by a gang of mosquito’s I decided to check out what’s going on with the auction. I just can’t say thank you enough. If you ever get up here I’d be happy to take all of you on a tour of our world!
