The Thread: From The Dog Who Knew Too Much

Women of a certain type have an effect on Bernie. This was that type of woman, easy to see just from the way Bernie’s mouth fell slightly open. Curvy shape: check. Big blue eyes: check. Face tilted up in his direction: check. Poor Bernie: that was all it took.

“That’s me,” Bernie said. “And this is Chet.”

She backed away. “He’s so big. I’m not comfortable around dogs.”

Not comfortable around me? True, I’m a hundred-plus pounder, but she had nothing to be uncomfortable about, unless she pulled a gun or something like that. I watched her hands, square-shaped, a little plump, with bright red nails.

“You can be comfortable around Chet,” Bernie said.

“Why is he looking at me like that?”

Bernie glanced over at me. “Uh, not sure, actually. But he means well.”

Of course I did! But I kept my eyes on her hands, just in case. Funny how the mind works: mine was making some kind of connection between red nails and guns. Then I started thinking about the way women paint their nails – I’d seen Leda, Bernie’s ex-wife, do it many times – and men never did. Next I thought about what human nails were for, so small and dull-edged. And after that I lost the thread.

Welcome Amy Mae.

Tomorrow: asteroid mining, pros and cons.

    Thread!…heh!..Chet you’re the best!…snort!….We came down to get some stuff so someone could finish her gift to her friend…grunt!…More birthday fun today, it just never stops for some of us…wuffle!

    Woke up this morning and NO INTERNET! That has now changed (obviously).

    Morning B! Morning Grumpy</strike)Riö!

    Have a few questions …

    Why was there a motorcycle on the baseball field last night? Why would Hairstone want to hit a motorcycle anyway? Were the Rockies using a motorcycle instead of running the bases?

    AND … I love tomorrow's topic!! Pros and Cons! Heads up on that topic! Must ponder …

    (Riö, I told Zoe that you said we had to rest OR ELSE. She wants to know what the else is. I'm not sure I want to know)

    CRIPES! CARPOLA! ended the strike thingy wrong.

    Astroid mining … Real Astroids? Or maybe Astrid? Nah, we couldn’t be that lucky.

    Staff is going out today also. Her local quilt group is having a class and she can go and hang out with them although she won’t be taking the class as she is not prepared for it.
    Instead she is thinking about doing something for the Musher’s Mercantile.

    see y’all later.

  13. Tupper and Gilly
    10:45 am on April 28th, 2012

    Morning everyone.
    Rio – we are being abandoned today too-sniff. Why oh why do two- leggeds make such a big deal about doing errands?

    Mama had a talk with her pottery mentor yesterday. She has one week to make pots so they can be cured, scraped, fired, glazed, re-fired, and blinged if she wants them for her Memorial Day show. So she will be in her Mud Room all day, every day for this week. And we will be on the rug under her work table with chew bones! Woo hoo!!!!

  14. Siber-H
    11:01 am on April 28th, 2012

    The Rockies won 18-9!!! I have no idea what Melanie is talking about…motorcycle?

    Our small problem this morning is that mom found a stray dog on our front porch. She is now in my backyard and mom is waiting until animal control opens to call them. It is a very nice, friendly dog. She must be someone’s lost pet, but she has no tags.

  15. Melanie
    11:14 am on April 28th, 2012

    Siber-H, that comment comes from a comment from Riö about someone’s hair doing a cycle?? I don’t know maybe he was asleep when he wrote it.

    I hope the nice friendly dog has a chip. All our dogs are chipped. And Riö, I’m not taking about chipped teeth.

  16. Mollypop's Mom
    11:19 am on April 28th, 2012

    Double Dawson click test.

  17. Siber-H
    11:22 am on April 28th, 2012

    We hope the dog has a chip also, but since it has no collar and tags we bet it doesn’t. Mom let me out to play with her. We played chase around the yard and she was blowing bubbles in my outside water dish…nutty girl. She may have some Golden in her.
    I’m chipped.

    Hopefully her owners will look for her at Animal Control, but if now, she is very adoptable. Thank Dog, We have a great Animal Control here.

  18. Melanie
    11:27 am on April 28th, 2012

    Oh I’m so glad you have a good Animal Control group there.

    “Double Dawson click test”?

    Slip for wedding attire bought!

  19. Barb & Maggie
    11:47 am on April 28th, 2012

    Good morning all. I am chipped also, whatever that means.

    Siber, any chance you will have a new roommate?

    Has Oley been around the last few days? Don’t recall seeing posts from them. Not since Rio made the comment about liberals. Hope they were not insulted – we weren’t. Heh!

    Off for errands. BBL

  20. Siber-H
    11:58 am on April 28th, 2012

    Barb, Mom says no to the new roommate idea. This dog isn’t a puppy but she is very young. The animal control office arrived with a scanner for the microchips…just as we thought, the girl wasn’t chipped.

  21. Rose
    12:06 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Good Afternoon All!

    SiberH: Maybe you may have a new forever friend?

    Rio: I was not watching THAT game last night….the other NY team was playing, and then we had movie night…I hope your friend has a most excellent time at the game on Sunday. I will watch that game. Tell your friend to hold up a picture of you and Beau so I can find her in the stands.

    No errands for me today, just some wonderfluffling!

  22. Princess Sam
    12:37 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Daddy took a video of me today and sent it to my girl at college. She will be coming home soon. She’s never going back, ever!

    My girl is going into an Honors Program, which is seldom offered to a freshman. Whatever that means, I think she’s getting out on parole – to stay home with me.

  23. BearSpiritDog
    1:11 pm on April 28th, 2012

    I also have a chip (not had, but have) With my wily ways it is a must. Sometimes known as Wile E. Coyote around these parts.

    Siber-H: We hope she finds a Forever Home right away. Sounds like your Animal Control is better than most.

    O.Howlers: Where are you?

  24. B.Stover
    1:21 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Sam: That is excellent about your girl getting into the Honors Program.

  25. Barb & Maggie
    1:53 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Bear, Glad to see that you are back in the proper (present) tense again.

    Cold, icky day here, feel a nap coming on…

  26. Siber-H
    2:48 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Sam, Congratulations to your girl!!

    Mom will call animal control in a few days to find out if the dog has been claimed by her owners.

    Where are My Fellow Sibers?

  27. Mollypop's Mom
    3:03 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Melanie – I did the Double Dawson click test to see if I could click the mouse twice, fast enough to make that happen. I’m guessing it happens when the same post is sent fast, but much faster that a human can click. Faster than the server software can detect a duplicate.

    I’m saying this because Dawson said her problem went away when she got a new mouse.

  28. Melanie
    3:04 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Wellllll, our odd jobs guy just left. He’s great. Jesse is our go-to guy and this guy is our everything before we have to get a replacement guy.

    Remember when I told you the Pack tore down the pantry door? Tom’s taking the door with him and is going to fix it.

    He also came to look at the sink in the downstairs bathroom. It’s small. Mac got in there last night and shut the door behind himself. Was in there for two hours. Being large he jarred the sink. The sink being old had corroded pipes and they loosened. The floor was awash in water when we finally found Mac. He was having a great time. He was very cool and wet. What more can a Newf ask for?

    So Tom is coming back on Monday and replacing the pipes and joints WITHOUT Mac’s help. He also fixed it enough so the leak is less leaky.

  29. Snowhook Bella
    3:42 pm on April 28th, 2012

    There’s a Newf in the bathroom, dear Melanie, dear Melanie.

  30. Siber-H
    3:52 pm on April 28th, 2012

    I’m laughing, Melanie.

  31. OleyHowlers
    4:07 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Howdy, Folks. We didn’t mean to be away so long. Yes, Maggie, we did get a bit miffed. Dima kept grumbling to himself, and Mom said we were not..repeat NOT to get into a political argument on this here blog. Dima kept saying “But…but..but” and then Mom took away our iPaw. We are under strict instructions that if we can’t say something nice, we are not to say anything at all. (whispering) We hope Empress Bee is making 4 individuals serve very long sentences sans pie.

    Meantime, Mac is becoming a plumbers apprentice. We always knew that boy was going places. Us…we have been having parties at home while Mom and Pop were off at 2-legged parties. Last night was a big “Art for Arfs” preview event. The actual event is in May. It is a BIG fundraiser for the Humane Society, which is helping our guys, so we couldn’t complain much about them leaving us for the party. Only Patron-level supporters were invited to the Preview Party, so Mom thinks she and Pop are a couple of Swells now.
    Tonight, they are going to another fundraiser party, so Mom says we can have our own party with Frosty Paws and all!

  32. B.Stover
    4:48 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Howlers: I just ignore politics that don’t agree with mine. There is usually no changing minds on that topic.

  33. Barb & Maggie
    4:51 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Melanie, It’s hard to keep up with those guys! Glad you have someone to help out.

    Glad you decided to post today, Oley. We learned a long time ago that there are too many good things about this blog to leave. We love who we love in the political arena and that is that. We just don’t comment on political negativism, on either side of the isle.

    Taking a walk out to the Magical Garden for some pickin and a grinnin. Should we take a picture? We were not sure, when Rio named it the Magic Garden, if he was being complimentary or if he thought the garden was a figment of Barb’s imagination.

  34. Barb & Maggie
    4:52 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Hey, Prof. Bee just said the same thing in a lot fewer words!

  35. Barb & Maggie
    5:04 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Forgot to mention this morning, Melanie, it is hard to read your posts when there are lines running thru all the words!

    BBL, going to the Magic Garden.

  36. OleyHowlers
    5:04 pm on April 28th, 2012

    B and Barb, that is what Mom says, but we huskies are always up for a brawl!

    Sasha is having hard times nowadays. Since she got so ancient, she likes to bark (and bark and bark). But she always sleeps like a rock. This week, she started barking all night long too. None of us are getting enough sleep, and we are feeling very blue for poor old Sasha. We think this is a lot like what Dan is going thru. Please say some prayers for our Lead Dog.

    We almost forgot: Studly Shiek turned 31 last Thursday. He got his usual chocolat donut to celebrate

  37. BearSpiritDog
    5:17 pm on April 28th, 2012

    B: We quite agree. Politics and religion off limits here.

    Barb&Magpie: Your Garden is indeed Magical as it serves up an unending supply of delicious salads.

    O.Howlers: Strong prayers going out to Sasha.
    Happy belated birthday to Shiek!
    Everyone enjoy your Frosty Paws!

  38. B.Stover
    5:20 pm on April 28th, 2012

    My best wishes to Sasha and Happy birthday Shiek.

    Barb: I’d love to see pictures of your garden.

  39. Basil and Sage
    5:39 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Barb – we only want to see pics of your garden if there is catnip growing out there.
    Or if there are mousies or other nice things to chase.

  40. Princess Sam
    5:47 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Thank you all for your kind words about my girl. She had good behavior so they’re letting her out on parole – an honorable discharge. That’s what the Honors are about and my family and I knew she could do it if she would just try to behave.

  41. Barb & Maggie
    6:00 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Sammy, We know you are right about your girl. I bet she is going to come home soon, and will stay forever and ever.

    Going to take a couple of pics. BB

  42. Rose
    6:06 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Sam: You must be very proud of your girl!

    OH: Happy birthday to Shiek! Sending strong prayers out to Sasha.

  43. Barb & Maggie
    6:36 pm on April 28th, 2012

    We are back and have 3 pictures to show you. This first one is some smaller plants – peas, onions, spinch, beets and swiss chard. And of course, me and the goats in the background!

  44. Barb & Maggie
    6:41 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Next we have some garlic, potatoes, and greek oregano in the background (sort of like catnip).

  45. Barb & Maggie
    6:44 pm on April 28th, 2012

    And finally, here is the lettuce and arugula.

  46. BearSpiritDog
    6:53 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: Wow! Beautiful garden! Maggie, I see you are doing a great job of guarding, keeping those wily goats away.

    Sammy: Congrats to your girl!

    I’ve been a houseplant the last ten days – actually I had double pneumonia and confined to bed rest the whole time. During that time I caught up on all of the first four books in the series (We have the fifth, thanks to a book presentation in Manhattan). Before I moved to Long Island in 1990, I was born and raised in Phoenix. Maybe it’s the fever, but I kept flashing back to places around the Valley of the Sun when reading these books – especially downtown Pottsdale with its fancy art galleries. I can place a number of the locations with the exception of Mesquite Road. In any case, I love the series and look forward to many more dogfights.

    Chipped!…I have a Chip….snort!…On my shoulder….grunt!

    Garden!…That is a Magical Garden…sniff!…Her mother went ahead and planted 4 tomatoe plants outside. My friend thinks its way too early, but theres no stopping her mother when she wants to plant something…chuffle!…Beau and I helped all day long while we waited for someone to finally come home…grunt!

  49. Siber-H
    7:03 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Fellow Sibers, Heartfelt prayers for Sasha. She is the Queen of us Sibers here on the blog.

    What she is doing sounds like a classic case of doggy alzheimers. The vets have another name for it but you can read about it by googling doggy alzheimers. There is a drug specifically for it if you wanted to try that route.

    Happy 31st Birthday to Shiek!

    Barb, That is all very GREEN.

  50. Barb & Maggie
    7:10 pm on April 28th, 2012

    BSD, Actually there is a fence between the yard and the goats. They would have the garden all eaten down to the ground if they were allowed anywhere close!

    Happy Birthday Shiek. Special restful prayers going out for Sasha.

  51. Mollypop's Mom
    7:12 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Barb – Lovely garden, dog and goats!

  52. B.Stover
    7:16 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Barb: Your garden is absolutely wonderful! Wish I had that much space.

    Hi Terry. Hope you’re feeling better.

  53. Barb & Maggie
    7:17 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Rio, We agree with you on the tomatoes. Rule here is that tomatoes and peppers do not go in before Mother’s Day. Usually even later than that, more like the 20th of May. We are going to try a row of early beans in another week.

  54. Terri
    7:20 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Woof! Looking forward to asteroid mining and stuff like that tomorrow. I like that garden — my Mom is much too lazy to make a garden that big even though she thinks it’s a great idea. Do you plant tomatoes when it gets warmer? We had freezing temps overnight last night so no gardening yet.

    Today the sun finally started shining again. It’s been a while. We all enjoyed the back deck and I played fetch with Mom. Flower likes to soak up the sun’s warmth. On Monday we had snow, then rain off & on until today. So lazy Mom thinks she has an excuse for not putting the big shovel away and not taking the proper deck chairs out yet.

  55. Riö –The Evil Pug
    7:23 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Maskers!…He sure gets around…heh!heh!

  56. Melanie
    7:35 pm on April 28th, 2012

    What a beautiful garden. Mine has soil in it. That’s it.

    Sam! Honors! Congratulations to your girl!

    Shasha, perhaps she and Dan could get together in a dreamland and go for wonderful walks. Best wishes Shasha.

  57. Mollypop's Mom
    7:36 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Terri – Is that shovel thing actually a lacrosse stick?

  58. Barb & Maggie
    7:41 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Terri, We have 4 raised beds, about 8 x 8 each. We do about 10-12 tomatoes. Anyone who has been on the blog for awhile knows that Barb is a bit obsessive about her heirloom tomatoes. Don’t get her started, please!

    We are off to watch Winn Dixie and then Duke, both doggie movies on Hallmark. Does anyone know what kind of dog Winn Dixie is?

  61. Tupper and Gilly
    7:57 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Barb is pretending to be Dawson!!!

    I, Tupper have a chip on my shoulder too, but Gilly doesn’t – yet. She gets hers on Monday. It was supposed to happen last week, but then Dad got that stomach thing.

    Siber – how’s the soft food diet?

  62. Siber-H
    8:00 pm on April 28th, 2012

    T&G I adjusted quickly. I’m a good eater. Sibers aren’t suppose to be good eaters. Mom doesn’t want to give me a big change from kibble because that can cause the runs in dogs. Like I care, but she does.

  63. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    8:04 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Rio. We planted our tomatoes a few days back and have been lucky too — it’s gotten a bit cold but has stayed above freezing, so they seem to do doing okay. This is the earliest we have ever planted them, but our spring has been warm. Dad uses raised beds for the tomatoes — that has worked well for the past couple of years so he will stick with it. Mom has planted some herbies too (including basil and sage).

    As to gardens and fences, ours is fenced in too. As I may have mentioned previously, that is all because of the unfortunate incident several years ago involving me and my friend Casey (who has since crossed the Rainbow Bridge) and a wrestling match we had in the asparagus beds. Oh well . . . . In any event, its now hard for me to chase the rabbits when they go through the slots in the fence into the garden.

    8:08 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Wookie!…My bet is on the Tomatoes freezing and turning black before the month of May is almost over…heh!heh!

  66. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:15 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Books!…My friend didn’t find all the books she was looking for at that big library sale…sniff!…But she did find one Andy Carpenter book and one Alexander McCall Smith and the first Reacher, and a book on Drawing, and a couple more that I don’t remember…snort!…One of her friends who has never read the Chet and Bernie books found DOI and THAT in hardback…heh!…One of them was Autographed!!!…gasp!…But not by our author…sniff!…Oh and she said Alexander McCall Smith is coming to this Library in October!….WOOOOOOO!…All the way from Scotland!…Wow!…Someone here is very excited about that news…heh!

    8:41 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Greetings Plunderers! We are finally back in the middle of the mitten. We spent last night and today in Grand Rapids with sissy. She had her 2nd chemo treatment this past week and is feeling carpola. She seems to run a low-grade fever at night after the chemo and her joints ache. The worst side effect for her is the inability to go (ifyouknowwhatImeanandIthinkyoudo) and nothing she does or eats seems to help. She says everything tastes like metal so she is not eating too much.

    BIL announced that he has been diagnosed with an umbilical hernia and needs surgery. This is done laparoscopically now, 2 incisions and a 3-day recovery time. He’s got an appt this week w/the surgeon. This family needs NO MORE troubles!

    Hung out with my wonderful grandma and visited 2 quilt stores. Mom has been learning how to quilt and has her next 3 projects already planned. Yes, she’s been making things for the Spring Fling thingamabob for Snowhook.

    Mom had lunch with my 2-legged brother and my wonderful Grandma. Here’s a picture.

    Congrats to Sam’s girl, and happy birthday to Sheik. Did a LOL about the newf plumber. Enjoying the garden pictures.

    Mom is watching the NASCAR race so it’s time for my nap. Yawn…

  68. Riö –The Evil Pug
    8:50 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Jasper!…YES!YES!YES!…snort!…This is what I love to hear! Your gal is making something for the Spring Boutique and it might be a Quilt!…Woooo!…We all know how popular Quilts are on this here blog…wheeze!

    Related!…I can sure tell those two guys are related…heh!…Wonderful Grandma and Grandson. Can I give your grandma a big slurpy Pug Kiss?…sniff!…I miss my grandma so much it hurts…wuffle!

    9:04 pm on April 28th, 2012

    Whew, we’ve got at least 2 more nights in the low 20’s here. Tonight and tomorrow. Hmm. They SAY it will get warmer . . . but I think I’ll still only plant the lettuce next week.

    Hi Jasper! More power to your family!

    I don’t think I’ve seen a posting from Wölfie today. Paws crossed!

    Patsy and I are going up to bed. TTFN

    Nice picture, and they do look related, don’t they? Hope you had a fun day. Hope Sis feels better too.

    I do not have any idea how the Double Dawson happened.

    Back to our movie, Duke, which has a Border Collie star, sort of a cousin of my kind. And Winn Dixie is a Picardy Shepherd from France, in case anyone was curious.

    Whoa, Terri’s friend, back up for one moment. Were you referring to the Chet Books a while ago?

    If so, how on earth did you end up reading five?

    I have only read four!

    Mom is totally p@seed. Some idiot ( the mother of his friend) picked him up from rehab on Tuesday. After mom BEGGED HER not to. The mother of his 16 yo girlfriend is serving him with a restraining order. Things could get a little dicey for him.

    However, he called mom on Tuesday night and told her that she was no longer his mother and that it was the last time he would ever hear from him.

    That may not be such a bad thing if he goes back to drugs.

    Wolfie, I’m very sorry. Your mom doesn’t need or deserve this.

    Wolfie and Jasper, Your families are in our prayers.

    Wolfie, That is so sad, and you have to wonder what his friend’s mother was told by the kids that she was willing to pick him up.

    Better just to detach from him emotionally at this point, and wait for him to come to some better conclusions on his own. You cannot make the right choices for him. Knowing in your mind what you need to do, and feeling it in your heart are two different things. It must be so hard, and you deserve so much better.

    TO: Mollypop’s Mom –

    Terri – Is that shovel thing actually a lacrosse stick?

    That “toy” lacrosse stick is sometimes used like a “chuck-it” to toss my Kong toys around for me to fetch. The big shovel I mentioned is the black thing behind me (you can see part of it).

    It has been a full day. Mick and Jodi, the people not the puppies visited the kennel with Cousin Bob who is visiting from the lower 48 A professional photographer came to the kennel to take photos of the dogs for a coffee table book he wants to publish on sled dogs. AJ wasn’t home yet so Mick, Jodi and Cousin Bob refused to leave because they didn’t think AJ would be pleased if they left me alone with a stranger. “Unsafe!” he would say, “Unsafe!”. The photo shoot went well and when it was over it was time to load up 36 of the dogs and hit the road. AJ has to get them to the ferry tomorrow afternoon so they can get to southeast. AJ will have to drive all night. Luckily, Tenzing is copiloting this venture. AJ only reminded me to lock the doors six times between the photographer leaving and the team pulling out of the driveway.

    My heart is hurting tonight, partly because I miss the dogs, but mostly for Wolfie and his family. I wish I could wave a wand and make it better for you. You’ve been given good advice, much I would say as well so I won’t repeat it. Just know that you are loved.

    Luna reported from the quilt. Dan has made quite the executive suite in the quilt with the help of couch cushions and throw pillows. Belle Starr and Masquers are staying close to Rose and Sasha has decided to spend the time under the quilt as a lap dog. Who’s lap? Wolfie’s mom. Luna reports all edges of the quilt are tucked comfortably around all who need it—snug as a pug in a rug.

    Night all.

    Thanks for the well-wishes. Donna won’t let the autographed book 5 out of her sight, but I may be able to corral a spare when I see Spencer at BookExpo in a month.
