    Good morning, everyone! Looks like a dog on good time was had at the Dogwood festival. For those of y’all with no blooms yet, snuggle up and enjoy the fotos OFA posted. ML, when it rains, it pours. You are in our heart.
    Have a magical Monday 🙂

    Nice article. Belgian Malinois do very well in the dog diving competitions. Wonder if BSD ever tried it? And a woman named Spring Day? How cool is that!

    Read MaryLou’s comments from last night. Poor Angie. How low can you go! Even though her heart is breaking right now, she is better off. Don’t buy into an apology and “It will never happen again”. Once a cheat, always a cheat. Josh had a similar thing happen at Barb’s mom’s funeral. His girlfriend at the time was in California and unreachable by phone. Turns out she was with another guy. He was wild with worry for two days trying to find her and attend a funeral at the same time. They broke up. She tried for months to win him back, but he held strong. Best thing that ever happened to him. Ever!

    Interesting competition.

    Good morning all.

    Macy’s Mom, it’s better for Angie to find out the guy’s a cheater now instead of later on. He’s a cheater and cheaters always cheat.

    Rio, did Beau come home? I am worried about your friend and Beau!

    ML – Angie has far too much going for her to settle for a “mondo dismo” (one if our favorite lines from “Romancing the Stone”). She had a great father who set an example of the kind of man she deserves.
    Better days are coming. And we hope Nikki feels better soon

    We have our first show of the season coming up this weekend. Just a small, one day show. Just enough to get our feet wet and practice for the coming season.

  7. Tupper and Gilly
    9:51 am on April 14th, 2014

    Angie – this isn’t advice you understand, but it is a really good feel better song for your poor broken heart.

    We know of One who Will Not find this competition fun and his name begins with a Siber and ends with a H.
    Barb&Magpie: You should have seen me at the Beach in San Diego many years back! Leaping high in the air. Wowzer!

    Tupper & Gilly: Romancing the Stone. We Love that movie.

    Hounds: Yes, it shall be a Magical Monday. I will make certain of it.

    A Good Day to B, BooBear, MollyPop’s Mom and All.

    Good Morning All–I am also looking forward to a Magical Monday in your virtual company. No advice for the young lady but lots of sympathy–this too shall pass (although that’s not much comfort at the moment).
    I look forward to some paid work today, interspersed with grading, dog walking at the local high school (where it’s Spring Break) and various fix-it stuff around the house.
    Be well, all. Here’s a picture of Conan with no-longer-brown teeth.

  10. Masquers
    11:07 am on April 14th, 2014

    Diane: Conan looks fierce in his newly whitened teeth!

    ML: Angie is definitely better off without that cad, but we know that knowledge doesn’t help the hurt.

    Today is Melanie’s 60th Birthday. I hope she is someplace wonderful. I love her dearly. Zoe

    12:33 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Chet’s post today? You gotta be kidding me.
    This is why the Nation within a Nation is so wonderful. It takes all kinds…shudder
    I don’t even get one drop of water on my nose when I get drink.

    Meashka, I am going with you to teach Angie’s X a lesson. I don’t think it will take Angie long to realize this guy is an uber jerk and get over him.
    I am sorry the family has to go through sickness and cheaters at a time like this.

    I hope Niki is on her way to feeling better.

    Conan, You are a cutie with your newly white teeth.

  13. Siber-H
    12:35 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Zoe, I am sure Melanie is someplace wonderful and excited about the new baby. Happy Birthday to Melanie! We also love her dearly.

  14. O'Howlers
    12:47 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Happy Birthday to Melanie. We miss the cakes, but not nearly as much as we miss her.
    Like Siber, we Say it takes all kind. While we do not mind rain, or the occasional creek, like Siber does, there is no way we are leaping into that water.
    We hate that ML and Angie and Niki must go thru all of these sorrows and illnesses. Wish we could help. Please know we love you.

  15. BearSpiritDog
    1:13 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Zoe: We too wish Melanie a Very Happy Birthday.
    She is Missed & Loved by so many.

  16. Diane C.
    1:36 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Happy Birthday, Melanie. Miss you but expect to be along presently.

    Masquers and SiberH–I read Conan your comments and now he’s walking around grinning.

    Here’s a little something from one of my favorite philosophers:

    ‘In all matters of opinion, our adversaries are insane.’
    Oscar Wilde

  17. B. Stover
    1:50 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Happy Birthday Melanie.

    It is good to have you on the blog Zoe.

    Conon looks fierce but beautiful.

  18. Herd of Hounds
    1:54 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Zoe: She is missed by many.
    Diane: Conan ls looking tip top.
    T&G’s Mama: We know those corgis keep you chained to your worktable. Hope the show goes well.
    ML and girls: Lots of hugs and dainty and newfie licks coming your way.

    Rio? Did Beau show up????

  20. Tupper and Gilly
    1:57 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Diane – that is our philosophy of life. That and “everything is better when it is properly herded”.

  21. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    2:38 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Zoe. Thanks for the reminder about Melanie’s birthday. I’m sure that, wherever she is, is made more wonderful by her presence there. And thank you for wanting to become part of our blog family.

  22. Teddy Ruff Rider
    2:41 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Me and my best gal Zeta did an eight and one half mile walk around Sugarloaf Mountain on Saturday. It was great fun and we probably could have done even more, but the two-legged were pretty tired at the end of it. A picture below of us on the trail.

    Teddy: Two-Leggeds…Light Weights in the hiking department.

    Happy Birthday, Melanie. We love her and you, Zoe.

    Angie: Your X is a jerk.

    BooBear!…Beau blew in around midnight and went sound to sleep with all four paws in the air…snort!…No one missed him, well I did not, but I sure knew when he was back in the ole bedroom…pee-yeeew!

  26. Barb & Maggie

    Happy Birthday to Our Dear Friend. She knows she is in our thoughts always, and especially today.

  27. Herd of Hounds
    5:41 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Mom just talked with her b i l in Niles, MI. Said her was watching some white shiitake falling from the sky and boy is he tired of it. Says it won’t stick as it was 70 yesterday. Mom hopes the 30’s overnight don’t get to her new plants.

  28. Mollypop's Mom
    5:53 pm on April 14th, 2014

    HOH, we’re getting it tomorrow. Our last few days of 75° weather and all my sunbathing at holiday Valley are coming to an end. Tomorrow will be in the 30s with 4 inches of snow and then the next day down into the 20s. Unbelievable!

  29. Mollypop's Mom
    6:01 pm on April 14th, 2014

    I forgot to say – Beyond Human Endurance.

    Hello Zoe: Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl and our very good friend! I think she is walking/running/joking with Dan, the Newfs and some Snowhook dogs in a land with no pain and tons of laughter. I miss her so…

    Today is the end of our summerlike temps too. It is going to rain tonight, thunderstorm tomorrow (yikes!), and possibly change to snow tomorrow night. Then the temperatures are going much lower. Wednesday’s high is supposed to be 47, and the low will be 27. The ‘rents are not loving that.

  33. Barb & Maggie
    6:32 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Teddy and Zeta make a beautiful couple, and that 8 1/2 mile walk was good for everyone, bet the two leggeds were tuckered out.

    Still snowing here, down in the 20s tonight. We agree with T & G and MPM!

  34. O'Howlers
    6:34 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Teddy, where is Sugarloaf Mountain? We think that hike sound like a lot of fun.

  35. Barb & Maggie
    6:37 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Howlers, We told Lyla and Jack that we are calling this the Onion Snow. They thought that was funny.

    Blood Moon tonight, but we will not be out in the garden doing any dancing tonight.

  38. Tupper and Gilly
    7:52 pm on April 14th, 2014

    MPM – badump bump!

    Hey – no one noticed our P H O O E Y. Well, phooey!

    8:08 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Tupper and Gilly: I did notice your phooey. Phooey is one of my favorite words. I noticed that you spelled a word wrong. Teehee!

  41. Tupper and Gilly
    8:16 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Dawson – Well, phooey!

    Hey everyone – a little bird mentioned that one of our favorite people (who lives in Tennessee and had a whole bunch of hounds and a bushel of parrot type birds)may or may not be going to club Med tomorrow for an operation type stay. Maybe we could all send happy and healing thoughts thataway.

  42. dawson
    8:30 pm on April 14th, 2014

    T&G: Consider it done. Cool happy and healing thoughts will be sent down South starting now.

  43. Staff
    8:36 pm on April 14th, 2014

    I am sending those good thoughts that way also.

  44. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:39 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Phooey!…We here had the PHOOEY weather yesterday and all last night…sniff!…My friend had to chip my Subaru out of an igloo of ice this morning…grunt!….Then drive on glare-ice roads to the busy-place….Grump! and Phooey!…wuffle!

  45. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:51 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Maskers!….Yooo Hooo! We are watching the first of the last episodes of Mad Men…snort!…I LOVE this show. How can it be ending? Just like that – It will be gone after this season…wheeze!…I am going to savor every episode…gruffle!

  46. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:53 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Teddy!…Does it mean anything that Zeta the Siber is on a Leash and Teddy is not?…heh!heh!

  47. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    9:31 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Rio is very, very observant. Zeta has a GPS tracker collar but is at her core a true Siber, ergo the leash.

  48. BearSpiritDog
    10:06 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Royals: Good Thoughts are being sent in the direction from which that little bird flew.

  49. Barb & Maggie
    10:16 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Good healing thoughts coming from us in northern Illinois straight to Tenn.

    And T & G, we did notice your Phooey, that is why we said we agreed with you and MPM.

    Now good night all. Hope our snow is melted by tomorrow! One more really cold day, then it is supposed to start warming up again. We can only hope!

    10:21 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Today is the birthday of two very special people—Melanie who I miss very much, and Coach, the father not the person. Yark!

  51. Masquers
    10:22 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Riö! I had to watch the season finale of Justified again…just because I could.
    Mad Men has been gone for so long we’ve forgotten how most of the characters ended up in their present positions…and a bleak ending to the first episode.
    The Good Wife is off to a roaring start.
    We can’t imagine any of these top three favorites ending anywhere as well as Breaking Bad, which was a classic.
    Coming up in the Justified spot next week will be a new show called Fargo, which looks promising.
    And…House of Cards with Kevin Spacey is back for 13 episodes.
    These should hold us for a while…aye?

  52. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:23 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Wow!…Now we know of 6 people who have birthdays April 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16…snort!…Happy Birthday Father Coach!

  53. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:24 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Maskers!…Do not breath a word of the finale episode of Justified to me…wheeze!…We here have not seen it yet…gasp!weep!and…sob!

  54. Siber-H
    10:28 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Teddy and Zeta look like a couple of Pathfinders in that picture…nice picture. Mom is setting here nodding her head in agreement at Zeta’s GPS collar. Honestly, I think it might be overkill myself.

    Sharon, You are in our thoughts and prayers. Husky healing hugs

    Where is Wose?

  55. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:38 pm on April 14th, 2014

    SiberH!…We are watching the late-night west coast game, but there is no way in hell either of us will be able to stay up till the end…grunt!

    Rose!…Yes, I was thinking about Rose today and missing her little squeaky voice on this here blog….snuffle!

  56. BearSpiritDog
    10:39 pm on April 14th, 2014

    SnowBella: Arooooo! A Very Happy Birthday to Coach too!!!

    Tupper&Gilly: Of Course We Noticed your Phooey! Thinking all the while how clever it was.

    Teddy: Whoa…a Leash AND a GPS Tracker…Zeta is a girl after my own heart.

    Barb&Magpie: Tomorrow is Saving Mr Banks! We can’t wait!
    O’Howlers: Didn’t youse see it too?
    Anyone else?

    As Maggie as mentioned…tonight is the Full (Wolf) Moon Eclipse with the unusual name.
    It is supposed to be cloudy here so not much chance of seeing it. But just in case I will be ready.

  57. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:41 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Maskers!…Isn’t House of Cards on HBO or Showtime?….grump1…We will have to wait for the DVD to come out years and years from now…gruffle!

  58. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:42 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Moon!…I’ve heard the Moon tonight called, “Blood Moon”…snort!

  59. Masquers
    10:45 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Rose! We here have been thinking about her all weekend, but had assumed she and the Prof were away at their little cabin. Now here it is Monday and still she is missing.
    Do we need to organize a search party?

  60. Masquers
    10:51 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Riö: House of Cards is on Netflix streaming video. Didn’t you watch the first season last year? If you don’t subscribe to streaming video you could always order it for one month from Netflix then cancel. All 13 of the new episodes are available immediately and I know your friend loves Kevin Spacey.

  61. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:51 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Rose!…I hope she is howling at the moon tonight!…snort!….She needs to have some fun!…heh!

    SiberH!…Do you like our new pitcher Jordan Lyles as much as I do?…chuffle!…I think this guy is going to be great one day!…snort!

  62. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:52 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Maskers!….Hmmm. I will think on this. I do not like the whole idea of watching stuff on this computer…grunt!…I loathe and despise this computer, or is it just Windows 8.1 I loathe and despise?…grump!

  63. Tupper and Gilly
    11:05 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Rio – we watched the British (original) version of House of Cards on Netflix streaming. The lead character gave us the shivers, he was soooo creepy.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY COACH! Hope he could hear us from here.

    And that’s all from us – goodnight, family.

  64. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:06 pm on April 14th, 2014

    MollysMaw!….Did ya hear? The Avalanche won our Division Title!…snort!snort!

    Game!…Wow! This game is getting very exciting and I sure wish we could stay up for 2+ more hours to finish it…wheeze!…Probably not gonna happen on a weeknight…grump!…But we are good right now for a while yet!…WOOOOO!

  65. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:07 pm on April 14th, 2014

    British!…There was an original British version of House of Cards?? …grunt!…Now that is very interesting indeed…snort!

  66. Siber-H
    11:14 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Rio, I have my paws crossed for Jordon Lyles future with the Rockies.
    Rockies are ahead by one run now, but we are falling asleep. These West Coast games are impossible. The are even too late for the final score to show up in my morning newspaper.

    night all

    I hope Macy’s family is okay.

  67. Masquers
    11:19 pm on April 14th, 2014

    The British House of Cards is a trilogy I believe. After hearing what the Royals just said, it seems like the U.S. version is so much more appealing.
    Kevin Spacey may be cunning and manipulative but he’s so much fun to watch. Heh.
    Now…off to watch said show.

  68. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:21 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Late!…Yup!Yup!Yup!…sniff!…Too late for us, but we are still up like a pair of nit-wits…snort!

    SiberH!…Have you heard the commercial from the Announcers about the new “Rio on The Rocks” there at the ball-park?…heh!heh!…I’m thinking that is the Mexican Restaurant my friend likes so much for their Margaritas….wheeze!cough!…I love hearing Drew Goodman and that other guy say my name during a Rockies game…chuffle!snort!…Very kool indeed!…heh!

  69. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:25 pm on April 14th, 2014

    11:27 pm on April 14th, 2014

    POP!…Are you kidding me? He popped it up on the first swing and that is the inning leaving 3 hard-fought guys on base….GRUMP! and …Double GRUMP!…GAH!

  71. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:37 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Conan!…I was looking at that Conan guys photo and he looks like a guy I could hang with…snort!…His bottom snaggly teeth look a lot like my bottom snaggly teeth…heh!…The stories we could share about our teeth not coming together right…chorkel!…Plus I like his hair-cut. That flat-out part right over his eyes – what I wouldn’t give for that type of shade over the ole eyeballs….snort!

  72. dawson
    11:51 pm on April 14th, 2014

    Conan has his own built in visor. Smart dog.

    We strongly recommend that Angie take us up on our offer of biting a certain pant leg or two. For the record, our teeth come together nicely and we think they might punctuate Mama Meash’s lesson.

    HOH: Good thoughts and prayers are being sent your way.

    Wose: Belle Starr is worrit. We are at the ready for searching and rescuing.

    Beautiful clear day and now twilight in Alaska. For once I can get a clear view of the Blood Moon eclipse. The question remains if I can stay up for the next 3 hours to get the full affect.

    I hope Wose can check in tomorrow even if it is to say that she is still in the lurking mode.

    See you tomorrow…

    We did not see Mr. Banks. We did watch 12 Years last night though. It is a very good movie, though depressing.
    Good morning!

  78. Shopper Approved

    Shopper Approved is based on the
    powerful concept called ‘social proof’, which states

    When a potential customer goes online to buy a product or service, they actually want
    and actively
    look for reassurance that they’re making the right decision. And the way they get that assurance is
    from other customers’ ratings, feedback, and reviews.

    This is why statistically, 77% of online shoppers
    turn to consumer reviews before they decide to buy!

    There’s a reason why Amazon, eBay, Sears, and pretty much every other major ecommerce site have customer
    ratings and reviews integrated into their website.
    It’s because online reviews have been proven to increase
    conversion, increase average transaction amounts, improve customer satisfaction, and even lower product
