    Gooood morning,everyone. We hope ya’ll have a super first Saturday of summer šŸ™‚

    Macy: Your girl makes mom’s “sawn in half by the magician” place ache to look at!

    We wish more Tennesseans read so we could have fun fund-raisers with authors (like OFA) here!

    Enjoy summer (except maybe Barb & Maggie…rain, and maybe Staff & Dawson..ditto).

    Yes, rain this morning and lots of it! Should be clearing this afternoon.

    Barb is going to go meet Smokey Joe, the LBD, later this morning.

    Spence, good luck today. Hope no one throws anything at you, expecially not heirloom tomatoes!

    Good Morning HOH and Everyone . .

    I believe we are going to be having Alaska’s weather for the next few days. Hot and Humid. I hope our resident Alaskans are getting a break from that heat wave now.

    I am going to go to my sista’s and liberate some ferns. Her place was once a fern greenhouse and some of them escaped into the wild.

    This afternoon? POOL TIME! I think it will be warm enough for us two legged to get in the pool with our pups. Mattie will begin her swim therapy!

    Are we having the partay tonight? It’s the Supermoon tonight!

    9:10 am on June 22nd, 2013

    Barb and MagPie, But if they throw heirloom tomatoes he could keep the seeds and grow some next year.

    Melanie has a point, but a hat could cover it (he, he). Mom and the daddy dawg are going to a baseball game tonight, (sniff) why couldn’t they wait for dogs on the diamond and take us? We make greeee-at doggy diamonds.

    Have a good signing Spence.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning all.
    We hope our favorite author isn’t late – his post says “1 to 3”, but the event is from 11 to 3. And how come book signings are the last thing on the event list? In our world, that would have been first!

    Our neighbor across the street is having a yard sale, so we are busy barking and carrying on at each and every car that pulls up.
    By this evening, we will have laryngitis.

    And Mama will have gone bonkers from trying to hush us (tee hee)

  8. Herd of Hounds
    9:57 am on June 22nd, 2013

    T&G: Tell your mama you are just doing your job. At least yard sale people are strangers and they aren’t barking at the neighbors or at butterfly farts like we do.

  9. Barb & Maggie
    10:07 am on June 22nd, 2013

    Good point, Melanie. Hope Spence is into seed saving.
    The plants we bought this year were much bigger and healthier looking than what Barb has raised in the past. We will probably just continue to purchase in the future, although it is fun to seed save.

    Getting ready to go north to the lake house to see Joey Jr. Rain has stopped.

    10:20 am on June 22nd, 2013

    In honor of par-tay day, we will share our “Liver Bread” recipe.
    Preheat oven to 350*F. Pulverize liver in blender till no lumps remain. Add 1 pkg. Jiffy corn bread mix, 1 egg, 3/4 C. flour and mix well in blender. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray & spread mix. Bake 15-20 min. Cut when hot. Cool before it is stolen…er before serving. OK to freeze. HOH gives it 4 paws up.

  11. Tupper and Gilly
    10:28 am on June 22nd, 2013

    Sharon – are the resulting liver treats soft or dry and hard?

    When Mama makes her dog cookies, she bakes them a second time so they are totally dry and can be shelf stored.

  12. Herd of Hounds
    10:32 am on June 22nd, 2013

    That’s why mom stores in freezer. Wewill tell her about second baking. We don’t like to wait, we don’t need no stinking freezer. Want ’em NOW.

    Greetings All!

    We are in for our own Alaska heatwave for the next several days. Yuck! I hope this means that Rebecca’s hair will not ‘splode any more.

    Sammie, that wasn’t very nice of you to knock me off the dais. Remember, not only do I have to bow to HRH, but I have to bow to you, her Lady in Waiting. Ouch!

    Good day to All!

  14. Tupper and Gilly
    11:05 am on June 22nd, 2013

    Rose and Sammie – let us not forget that there are some here who are already ROYALS.

  15. Herd of Hounds
    11:10 am on June 22nd, 2013

    T&G: You don’t need to be snooooty patooooty. Like Chet, we of the nation within know all gods are not created equal. Some are more equal:)

  16. Tupper and Gilly
    11:11 am on June 22nd, 2013

    HOH – tell your mom that our Mama bakes our cookies, turns off the oven and lets them sit in the oven overnight. In the morning she breaks the cookies up, and rebakes them in a slow oven until they are hard. She got the idea from a recipe she saw about Italian cookies.
    We LOVE Cookie Break Up Day. The cookies are kind of cooked, but still chewy and we always manage to beg (quite) a few from Mama as she gets them ready to rebake.

  17. Basil and Sage
    11:18 am on June 22nd, 2013

    HOH – you tell em. We keep saying those dam Corgis ain’t nuthin special.

  18. Basil and Sage
    11:19 am on June 22nd, 2013

    By the way – we will be sending out the items from the boutique to the winners. Don’t be surprised if the box seems extra large, and had air holes. There just might be a “bonus” or two sent in those boxes if Mama let us help with the packing.

  19. Herd of Hounds
    11:25 am on June 22nd, 2013

    Oh,ooooooo. Around here, we know what a package is…we leave them in the backyard all the time. (Except for the wolf/dog who’d leave packages in front of the v e t.)

  20. Basil and Sage
    11:30 am on June 22nd, 2013

    (HOH – no, not that kind of package. We plan to ship the Corgis out once we get a hold of the packing tape. But don’t tell Mama)

  21. Siber-H
    11:48 am on June 22nd, 2013

    Rio, the game starts at 10 this morning. We will not be here for some of the game…sigh

    Have fun today, Spence. That is a worthy cause and we hope lots of money is raised.

    We need Masquers for this, but I think the Super Wolf Moon is Sunday night.

  22. Herd of Hounds
    12:00 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Siber, Mr. Husky: Farmer’s Almanac lists the full moooon @ 7:32 a.m. but the perigee @ 7:02 a.m. All EDT. Hope that helps. We are just confused, as usual.

    Super Moon
    You saw me howling along
    Without a dream in my heart
    Without treats of my own

    Super Moon
    You know just what I was there for
    You heard me howling a prayer for
    A Pack that I could care for . .

    Dam, auto correct . . “alone”

  26. Siber-H
    12:58 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    After reading Stover’s link I can see why some sources are saying Saturday and some are saying Sunday. We can just declare the whole weekend a Super Wolf Moon Holiday. That will eliminate any confusion because I am also confused.

  27. O'Howlers
    1:20 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Good morning afternoon! We are moving slowly here today, after our big Solstice Celebration. Unfortunately, none of the 2-leggeds who were here knew how to howl correctly, so we held ourselves in check. We will be doing our Howlfests under the Supercalifragilistic strawberry wolf moon.

  28. Siber-H
    1:26 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    WOW! Very nice photo Fellow Sibers

  29. B. Stover

    Yes, I like that picture.

  30. Herd of Hounds
    1:37 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    OH: Wow! Your 1:20 post looks like fotos of mom’s “Sonja snapper”. She & mom used to howl together! Mom taught Lucy Lou the Labradoooo to sing. Not quite as good aas Sonja.
    BUT HOH is and will always get confused when numbers and days get involved šŸ™‚

  31. Herd of Hounds
    1:40 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    The Rockies are going to win this game!!!

    I’m also watching the Le Mans race. GO PORSCHE!!!

    Dawson took me on a bike ride to the Farmer’s Market this morning. We had to go up some hills. It was OK going down the hills but that up part is hard on my North Dakota style muscles. (there are NO hills where I bike)

    Then I had to take my bike in for maintenance and for a basket. Also a helmet. I wouldn’t want to hurt my old head on the gravel road in Clifford.

    Now she is going to let me weed! Whoo Hooo.


    Oh, Wookie’s Dad. Although the personalized pages are a sweet idea we are not going to make the Turtleman work that hard. Since he is donating his time and equipment and paper and ink and binding expertise we will all have to personalize our Passports individually.

    We will have a cover with the picture of the three huskies and Plunderer Passport above and below

    The first page will be the Empress-Queens little paragraph, then a place for the photo of the bearer and below that, right near the bottom of the page a signature line. We will try to get the type face as close to a real passport as possible.

    After that the pages will be blank for stamps or photo’s or whatever is wished to be mounted or written in. It could be that it will be used as an old fashioned autograph book. It will be up to each individual plunderer.

    We are undecided about how many pages we will need. My thinking right now is a total of 30 pages and that is counting both front and back of each page.

    Does that sound good so far? Further ideas?

  41. Staff
    3:33 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Oh yes, Turtleman has something figured out to put a band of some sort around the passport to keep it closed. Rather like the little books some of you have been buying online.

    3:36 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Rio and SiberH — nice win today for the Rockies, but we will see what happens tomorrow.

  43. Siber-H
    3:43 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Wookie’s Dad, Since you will be there, Rio and I won’t take it too hard if the Rockies lose.
    About today’s game….It was bloody well time the Rockies found it in their hearts to win a game.

    Wookie-P!….Where will you be sitting at the game tomorrow?…snort!…I will be on the lookout for you to catch a ball or something. ā€¦heh!heh!

    Sharon!….Which game are you going to out there in Tennessee?…sniff!….Is there a baseball team around there?…chuffle!

  47. Riƶ - The Evil Pug

    Rio: we have the farm team for the LA Dodgers. Here we hillbillies call them the Chattanooga Lookouts (for our MT here in town).

  49. O'Howlers
    5:39 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Staff and Dawson, please give your sweet selves and Turtleman big husky kisses from us. The passports sound so fantastic. Kat is now wondering how she can get ours stamped from those Plunderers she met last year. Can they be predated?

  50. Tenzing
    5:39 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    We hear are getting ready to partay. Last night we practiced staying up all night howling so we are prepared for the celebration. We’d offer to have the party here, but the mosquitoes are unbearable. We will blur to wherever. Charlie and our Lady will blurr over separately so as to protect the quarter sausage for B. He’s been looking in the mirror all day making sure his ears look just right.

  51. Riƶ - The Evil Pug

    6:01 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    HOH, Buffalo is a farm team for the Blue Jays. (Hi, Rio and SiberH) Last year we were with the Mets and it wasn’t a good relationship. This seems to be going better.

  54. Riƶ - The Evil Pug
    6:03 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Blue-Jays!…Spit! Gag!…grump!

  55. Siber-H
    6:05 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    HOH The Triple A team for the Dodgers is here. They are called the Isotopes.

    Beau, I am glad you are getting to go to the party!

  56. Luna
    6:08 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Rio: I can blur you to the party, but I’m strict about my rules: Bring snacks enough for everyone, go to the bathroom beforepaw and keep the wiggling to a minimum. I’ve added a fourth just for you: No farting.

  57. SnowBella
    6:09 pm on June 22nd, 2013

  59. Luna
    6:15 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Rio: It was the new rule that got you, wasn’t it? My Lady can pick you up on the four-wheeler if you don’t mind the breeze in your fur and sharing the back rack with Charlie and Beau.

  60. Riƶ - The Evil Pug
    6:20 pm on June 22nd, 2013

  62. Charlie
    6:28 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    B: I’ve parted my ears down the middle and put some goop to hold them in place. Let’s hope it can withstand the ride on the four-wheeler.

  63. Riƶ - The Evil Pug
    6:32 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Ride!…Can someone else give us a ride?….gurgle!

    7:04 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Ooh! A party at Redbone’s house sounds great.

    Beau: We’ll be by to pick you up. And, Charlie wants me to clarify that he used hair goop not poop to style his ears, but yes, we’ve heard you’re quite a pooper.

  68. O'Howlers
    7:05 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    We are bringing a cooler full of beer and brats. And we got a sack of yummy chummies. Now if we just had a ride…

  72. Barb & Maggie
    7:25 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Barb is back from the lake and she says Smokey Joe is adorable, although he is extremely quiet. Don’t know if he is really older than they think, or if he is not feeling at home yet, or if that is just his personality.

    We are ready to party! That liver cookie/cake sounds wonderful to me. Barb says she has liver in the freezer, but not sure she is up to the blender part of the process.

  73. Siber-H
    7:38 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Where is Alice? Can’t she pick us all up in her jet. Or, I know what, I could borrow Natasha’s you know what.

    Doggy, doggy, doggy, that kitchen is hot! I would open the doors, but those nasty bugs would get in and eat us alive. Franklin is blurring over a BD cake. Not sure when . . I just hope it makes it.

    8:11 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    I learned something the hard way tonight—Beau has a lead paw. I didn’t see any harm in letting him drive, but after the third speeding ticket, I started to rethink my decision. He did manange to convert the third trooper, to exactly what religion, I’m not sure.

  87. Tupper and Gilly
    8:28 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Oh jeez – we are going to be late as usual. Mama has been in the mud room and she is a MESS. She wants to take a shower before we go to the party. We say to heck with her – someone stop by and pick us up- she can get here by herself.
    We want to get there before all the brats are gone.

  88. Siber-H
    8:31 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Rio and I are on our way to Redbone’s. Mom says that picking up Bluekat for the trip will be a good influence on us.

  89. Barb & Maggie
    8:35 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    MPM, Barb is not a big sports fan, but you guys are probably not cheering for the same team. We have to cheer for Chicago.

  90. Luna
    8:38 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    I can swing by and blur youse who need a ride. Maybe I can team up with Wolfie to make sure everyone gets to Redbone’s at a reasonable time.

  91. Beau - The Black Pug
    8:39 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Rebecca!….Before you drink too much of that clear punch, check your SDD…snort!snort!

  92. Macy's mom
    8:41 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    HOH, tell Maw not to be trying any of those fancy sit-ups just yet.

    I have a friend dropping me by the party. I stopped by the chicken shack for a barrel of livers. Do I need to pick up anything else, sugar dumpling?

  93. Mollypop's Mom
    8:43 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    MagPie – We are cheering for Chicago. Patrick Kane is a Buffalo boy who is much beloved around here.

    Moon!…Is the Big Moon gonna be out tonight?…snort!….Does anyone know for sure?

  95. SnowBella
    8:44 pm on June 22nd, 2013

    Wheeze! That drink that Redbone gave me packs a wallop! The jug with the three ‘X’s on it should have told me it would straighten my hair.

    Rio: Checked and responded.

    Whew, pass me a southern ladies fan so I can act if I have the vapors.

    I held on to Grace’s, Mac’s and Ros’s tails and they blurred me over. We did discover that in order to find Mr. Redbone Hound’s place, you need to be in the correct state of mind.

    Mattie bought Franklin two pairs of tap shews so if you hear a lot of clicking it’s not the crickets.

    What a feast. Ummm, is that Rebecca under the table yowling with the Kats?

    MollyPop’s Mom, help yourself to some gluten free pizza. ZoĆ« loves this kind.

    Don’t worry none about cleanin up – with Rio here, there twern’t hardly no leftovers at all, and the plates have bin licked clean enough to put back in the cupboard.

    Now Siber – when you return Miz Natasha’s you know what tomorra, Ah understand you will be a fillin it up with gas – but are you a stoppin at a Raceway, or was you jist talkin about carryin a couple of fartin’ pugs home?

    Looking at my watch, I realize that Zoƫ is goin to blow like Mount Fugi. The Newfs are staggered about with two -legged and four- legged using them as pillows.

    What the carpola was in those boot rear floats?

    I tiptoe out the house, and using my softest voice, I call ZoĆ« and explain the situation. I can’t get home without three Newfs. They are zonked completely out, and being used as pillows.

    Did she have to laugh quite so loud?

    I see B has made it off the roof. Now there are bunch of chickens roosting on the chimney.

    Ooo, Dawson’s head appears over the roof top. She spots me and motions to come up. I step over quietly snoring pugs, hounds, min pins, Newfs, corgis and humans.

    I make my way up the ladder. Dawson hands me a handful of cake.

    “As soon as the sun rises, we are going to drop those chickens on that pile of sleeping Kats.”

    We munch as the sky gets lighter and lighter.
