Tomorrow in Osterville Mass.

Spence will be at – or outside, if the weather’s nice – Books By The Sea in Osterville MA from 11:30-1:30. Why outside? Because there’s a dog parade at 12:30! Books By The Sea has some treats for paraders from the nation within. Spence will be signing and paw-printing (if he remembers the paw-printing kit) copies of PAW AND ORDER.

No uploading to the Friends gallery in this universe at this time.

    Good morning, are we actually beating HOH to the punch? Amazing!

    Have fun tomorrow Spence, and maybe you can upload a picture of the parade.

    Good morning B&M&Land everyone! Feel the need to dust off the soapbox so get ready. If you lurk or only read every second or third word, great, this is for you. Why do we go on and on and on about Snowhook? Simple, they are kind loving wonderful people and great dogs. The Iditarod doesn’t come cheaply and they work theit heinies off. We try to help a bit.

    If you’ve been lurking, you’ve heard us all beg and barter to raise funds, “Booties” for dog boots, Checkpoints to get straw, dog dinners and people food and supplies to those checkpoints. It doesn’t magically happen. Please, contact either Staff or Dawson at the emails they have set up for this. anything you send will help. Anything! Please. O.K. getting off soapbox now. (Grunt, groan) Go Snowhook!

    Hey, there B,M, & L!

    Tomorrow is scheduled to be a nice day, at least in my neck of the woods. Enjoy the signing, Spence. Do you get to be a judge for the best nation within parader?

    Greetings to all, and have a fantabulous Friday!

    Oh, Wose, you beat me to the day! I was going to suggest “Frisky Friday” but Fantabulous sounds fine for us 🙂

    No uploading photos “in this universe at this time.” Sounds ominous.

    Good morning all.

    Go Snowhook!

    Pretzels? Are youse serious? I am going to make pretzels for the Snowhook sale to be held in November; but I could do a few tubs this weekend for mailing on Monday or Tuesday if wanted, and youse could send checks to Snowhook. I’ll be gone today and tomorrow for the most part, but I’ll check in to see if pretzel making is in my near future!

  7. B.Stover
    9:41 am on October 17th, 2014

  13. Tupper's Mama
    10:22 am on October 17th, 2014

    Good morning all.

    Tupper wants to lead the parade, as is only proper, what with her being Royal and having the bling collar to prove it.
    Gilly on the other hand wants to be in charge of herding everyone to their place.

    Gotta love that crazy pup.

    Will be looking out for all checks.

    I am angry at Grizz, because he broke a lovely Murano glass flower given to me by our neighbor. I know it was an accident, but still. Sometimes, Grizz can be such a caveman.

  25. Tupper's Mama
    11:25 am on October 17th, 2014

    BooBear – hope someone can help Bambi.

    Turtleman – he is too funny

    Billy’sBuddy: We agree…That was a Very Amusing Comment up top.
    It seems Spence & Admin are getting Desperate for a Blog Update (as are we all).
    Your Fabulous Pretzels are on our Gift List, as always, but an Advance Order sounds Great! The check is in the mail. Heh.

    TurtlemanFred: Wowzer! Turtles sure have Dawgs beat in the vs human years department.

    Wose: Look forward to an Avalanche of Checks!

    BooBear: Because of all the wildlife, Alaska has a defined number to call but a lot of people just call the state troopers for wildlife help.

    Well, as of 10 o’clock last night, I have 11 cats in residence downstairs. The rescue people went out and decided due to the environment to immediately remove the cats/kittens instead of waiting a week as originally planned. Fortunately all the cats and kittens seem healthy.

    One black momcat has 6 kittens: 2 seal point, 2 black and 2 tortoise. The other black mama cat has 3 kittens: 1 black and 2 tortoise. All the cats have long hair and weigh a little over a pound. A bunch of puffballs. Each cat has her own bedroom to just relax and take care of her kittens. On Sunday one of the litters may go to another foster home.

    I have a friend from Fairbanks visiting Friday-Sunday and I called and told her that she has been upgraded to the master suite upstairs due to the guest bedroom having 7 cats in it. She just said, “Oh my!.”

    HOBBIT: I would like to have one of those kittens. My always bad mood would be gone in a New York minute. Might we see pictures?

  30. Staff
    11:41 am on October 17th, 2014

    Kittens! I am so jealous and Alice is so glad it is not at HER house.

    I couldn’t figure out why youse guys were all laughing at the Turtleman until I went back to yesterday and saw he had posted at the end there.

    Running to the post office to mail a check to Rose. BBL

  31. BearSpiritDog
    11:47 am on October 17th, 2014

    C.Hobbit: Yark! (as Siber-H would say). I hope you are getting paid Big Bucks for this.
    But, of course, you are Not. Sigh.

  32. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:52 am on October 17th, 2014

    We will place an order for the pretzels now, and will send a check directly to Snowhook. Maybe we will buy more next month.

    Heading out to have lunch with Kelly. Beautiful fall day here. Must treasure every one of these. BBL

    Hopefully this will work (I tried it last night and it didn’t). A special video from this summer’s Plunderfest in Vermont that I found on my phone in the last couple of days (Debbie had taken it on my phone but I had not known that she had done so). Starring Tupper, Gilley, Teddy and Rio, but a few other cameos as well. Let’s hope it works.

    12:13 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Wose: Photos of kitties will be forthcoming after they settle in and get used to me. I am to take lots of photos for adoption.

    BSD: this rescue group actually provides food and supplies which is very helpful.

    I am at the car dealer getting my headlight replaced then I have errands to do

  35. Siber-H
    12:14 pm on October 17th, 2014

    BooBear, I read your post last night. C.Hobbit has already suggested this, but I would call the local cops or cops of any sort (depending on where you live) because they can get ahold of Fish and Game a lot quicker and easier than we can.

    Wose, The check is in the mail.

  36. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    12:24 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Wookie and Teddy’s Dad, We couldn’t watch the video. It says we need Quick Time to watch it.

    Wose, Maybe you could trade Grizz for a little kitty?

  37. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:38 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Video!…Hey! That was Me on that there video!…snort!…Teddy sure reminds me of Agent 00-Wookie. That tail!!….chuffle!

  38. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:39 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Trade!…Grizz is worth at least 3 Kats…snort!

  39. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    12:42 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Oh Maybe 1 kitty and 1 puppy? Go all out!

  41. Basil and Sage
    1:15 pm on October 17th, 2014

    We had to switch to our Chrome browser to see the video.
    Phooey – all that work to see some stinkin’ Corgis, an evil Pug and a cute Goldie.
    Poo -we are going back to our catnip mousies.

    (whispering – we aren’t trying to intrude, but when you order pretzels, please remember that a certain Lurker will have a lot of expenses in making and shipping them. Just sayin’)

  42. Staff
    1:28 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Rose! The check is in the mail.

    I could see the video but I had to put my head sideways. Oh those Royals are so cute and Teddy is such a big beautiful guy now! Wow! Rio was there too. snicker

  43. Wose-the Small and Meek
    1:33 pm on October 17th, 2014

    RIO! For someone who isn’t allowed out of his yard, you show up in the darnedest places!

    Oh, if youse only knew how many times I wish I could trade Grizz in…..

    The video brings back nice memories of Vermont. sigh

    1:36 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Masquers: I wish I were at the Hobbit hotel right now, oh yes, I do!
    I just had to struggle with a backed-up toilet. It was not a pretty sight.

  45. Wose-the Small and Meek
    1:36 pm on October 17th, 2014

    AND, I have just run out of Swedish Fish!

  47. Riö - The Evil Pug

  49. Wose-the Small and Meek
    3:59 pm on October 17th, 2014

    RIO! It is Grizz’s fault, even though he wasn’t even here when it happened.

    HOH: I am having Swedish Fish withdrawal.

    Teddy’s Great Video came through just fine and Mysteriously several full length Movies. What???

  51. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:17 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Bear!…Was the movie called, “Teddy – The Wonder Years”?…heh!

  52. Basil and Sage
    4:30 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Rio – was the movie “Dog Day Afternoon”?
    “Barefoot in the Pug”?
    “Pug Cassidy and the Sundance Corgis”?

    Come on – who else has got one?

  53. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    4:35 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Rio, You are a computer whiz – When we click on Teddy’s link we get a message that says “Quick Time needs your permission to run”. If we click on the little square in the middle that looks like a puzzle piece nothing happens.

  54. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:57 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Quicktime!…Here is what I found…snort!

    You can run some plug-ins even if they are blocked by Chrome. Chrome will ask you for permission to run a plug-in and you should only run plug-ins on sites that you trust.

    To let the plug-in run on the site, follow these steps:
    •To run the plug-in just this once, click Run this time. The plug-in will run, but if you visit the site later, you’ll be asked for permission to run the plug-in again.

    •To always allow the current site to run the plug-in, click Always run on this site. Subsequent visits to the site will run the plug-in without asking again.

    •To always allow this type of plug-in to run, go to chrome://plugins, find the plug-in and check the box next to Always allowed.

  55. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:01 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Quicktime!…To do the third option which sounds like the best option, do the following…grunt!

    Enable or disable QuickTime plug-in

    The QuickTime plug-in is enabled by default after you’ve restarted Chrome. You can enable or disable the plug-in at chrome:plugins.

    1.Type chrome:plugins in the address bar.

    2.Find QuickTime: â—¦Click Disable to stop the plug-in from running.

    â—¦Click Enable to re-enable the plug-in.

    Rio, I wasn’t getting any of that stuff to even make those choices. You forgot to say to right click. I was left clicking and was getting nothing. Just went back and did it again with a right click and was able to then click on the plug in and see it. Thanks, it was very cute and all the dogs are so good looking.

  61. dawson
    6:11 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Luckily, the video showed up for me first time. I do have to hit a “save” button and then a “play” button.
    I see the Corgi’s don’t follow orders very well. Neither do I.

  62. Tupper and Gilly
    6:19 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Corgis follow orders perfectly….if you happen to give an order that coincides with what we want to do. And if it doesn’t interfere with our supper.

    6:23 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Plunderers – the butterfly pin is here. It’s very beautiful. Thanks, Amalia. Onward Snowhook!

    We didn’t have trouble with the video and loved seeing everybody, dogs and cameos.

    C.Hobbit – years ago our girl was a v*e*t tech. A new mom stray cat needed a foster home for herself and her three kittens. Our girl brought them here (I didn’t live here then) and everyone had a wonderful time playing with them and watching them grow, until they all found homes. Those little guys didn’t even have open eyes when they showed up and boy, they were cute. Good for you for fostering kats 🙂

  64. Herd of Hounds

  67. Riö -The Evil Pug
    8:47 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Bear!….There is a lot about you that I can not explain…snort!

    Show!…We are watching the lastest “How To Get Away With Murder”…wheeze!….This show is good, but I have no idea what is going on with the actual murder-part…sniff! …Lots of back and forth in time.

    Hobbit, you are too kind! Wouldn’t the kitties be just as happy in the laundry room? Poor C Hobbit always winds up without a bed.

  72. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:25 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Garage!…All those Kats should be out in the garage…grunt!…Plenty of room out there.

  74. Alice M. Johnson
    11:05 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Wolfie, Staff is a little slow and she is wondering if it was you who wanted all the dollhouse magazines she has taking up space here. If it is you they will be on thier way to you soon. If it isn’t she wishes whoever wanted them would speak up again.

    There will be some Dover coloring books for dollhouses and not for dollhouses on the boutique also. Just a few. Yawn. I was really sleepy today but I got my design wall up on the bid wall in my quilt room. Only the top part so far. But until I clear out the space in the spare bedroom to put the big old dresser I will not worry about the bottom of the design wall. It is covered up with that big old damned dresser that is so handy and heavy and big. Did I say big?

  75. Elliot the Massage Kat
    11:06 pm on October 17th, 2014

    It’s too bad yawl don’t like Kats. You won’t be getting any massages then.

  76. A. Catty Librarian
    11:07 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Go to bed, Staff.
    btw – you’d have a lot more room if you cleared out the wall-o-yarn you’re not using hint hint

  77. Tupper's Mama
    11:11 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Elliot – pay no attention to the anti-the-katters. We love our kitties, and BluKat and Alice and Abbie and TC and BooBear and Masquers and all other kitties that come to the blog. And we would love an Elliot massage. Should we bring our own sheepskin?

  78. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:29 pm on October 17th, 2014

    Elliot!…I bet he sleeps in the garage too…heh!heh!
