    Too bad we can’t watch it online.

    B: We were just thinking the same thing…if only this were Skyped!

    Nana says every time she sees OFA he gets Better & Better.
    BooBear’s Mom & Dad, I know you have been to signings before, but
    You are in for a Treat.

    Masquers, Thanks for the fun vacation pictures.
    Me too, I wish we could watch it online. It is going to be a good one.

    Wow! Mom and Dad need to leave a little earlier so they can get front row seats!

  8. Riö -The Evil Pug
    4:08 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Front!…Be sure to take something to throw…heh!heh!

    What exciting posts for today, even it today began late while OFA went to Houston. WE are enjoying the grand OFA Tour 🙂

  10. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    4:40 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Wow. OFA and Rosenfelt together. It just doesn’t get any better than that. Do you think Bernie and Andy Carpenter could work on a case together. And what about Chet and Tara, that would be quite a meet-up.

  11. Herd of Hounds
    4:41 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Welcome Terri, another looker of the nation within. Hope Spence is dealing well with time changes. Gosh, we hope tomorrow’s weather report for Denver is better than the one for the tour last year. Rain, rain, go away…

  12. Riö -The Evil Pug
    4:56 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Rain!…No rain predicted for tomorrow. This time Spencer will be here a little earlier in the season than last year. It will be around 90 degrees….snort!…Probably no humidity…sniff!sneeze!

    Rio: Paws crossed for the Best Possible Meet n Greet!
    But…First…BooBear at Murder by the Book…Heh.

  14. Riö -The Evil Pug
    5:14 pm on August 11th, 2014

    BooBear!…Yes, his Maw and Paw are going to have a very exciting time!…snort!…I just hope that Rosenfelt guy doesn’t hog all the talk-time…heh!heh!

  15. Tupper and Gilly
    5:22 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Oh, we are soooooo envious. Tonight would be a wonderful night to be in Texas.

    Have a Grand Time BooBear’s Folks. Ask lots of questions and answer lots of trivia.

  16. Riö -The Evil Pug
    5:24 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Trivia!…Oh crap! I bet someone has not been brushing up on all the books for a chance at a bookmark…snort!…That’s okay – we have plenty of books that are marked…heh!

  17. Barb & Maggie
    5:29 pm on August 11th, 2014

    That is awesome, Spence and David Rosenfelt together! I also wish it was videoed. Teddy’s dad has a great idea – Andy and Tara and Chet and Bernie doing a meet and greet, and maybe even solving a crime together. Would Andy go to Arizona, or C & B to Patterson, N.J.?

    Boobear, tell your mom to take LOTS of pictures, plus give us a full report.

  18. Herd of Hounds
    5:29 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Oh, Rio, you evil pug-lips

  19. Riö -The Evil Pug
    5:41 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Maskers!…When you get a Kats-Meow moment check your SDD…grunt!

  20. Riö -The Evil Pug
    6:29 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Blocks!…Hey BooBears blocks are up in the post!…snort!…Was that there before or am I just now noticing them?…wheeze!

  21. Siber-H
    6:49 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Rio, They weren’t there before.
    The blocks are so cool.

  22. Barb & Maggie
    6:57 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Admin says welcome new friend Terri, but I don’t think she is a new friend. Didn’t she post a long time ago and then stop? Doe anyone else remember her?

    Those are the blocks that Boobear’s mama gave to Spence at the last book signing, right?

  23. Barb & Maggie
    7:01 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Robin Williams was just found dead of an apparent suicide. Shocking!

  24. Herd of Hounds
    7:19 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Yes, B&M, we saw that. So sad 🙁 Loved his humor.

  25. B.Stover
    7:27 pm on August 11th, 2014

    I loved Dead Poet’s Society.

  26. Wose-the small and meek
    7:33 pm on August 11th, 2014

    He was great in Good Will Hunting. There is a hat tip over there on the right to BooBear’s mom.

  27. Barb & Maggie
    7:45 pm on August 11th, 2014

    The review over to the right is a good one and I don’t think there are spoilers there. I haven’t read too far yet, but I don’t think it gave away anything.

    Can’t wait to hear a report on tonight’s signing.

    Have fun Boobear’s mom and dad!

  28. BearSpiritDog
    8:17 pm on August 11th, 2014

    OMD! Robin Williams!

  29. Masquers
    8:29 pm on August 11th, 2014

    B&M: Wasn’t Terri the 2-legged that posted a long time ago? One of her pals was a Belgian Shepard, a Tervuren, not the BSD Malinois type. I believe they lived in Canada.

  30. c.hobbit
    8:40 pm on August 11th, 2014

    “Good Morning Vietnam” and “Moscow on the Hudson” were 2 of the many movies of Robin Williams that I enjoyed. He made interesting choices in his movies.

  31. Barb & Maggie
    8:51 pm on August 11th, 2014

    BSD, This Terri is a Tervuren I believe, and not a Malinois.

  32. Barb & Maggie
    8:54 pm on August 11th, 2014

    BSD, I do think you are right about Terri being the two-legged.

  33. BearSpiritDog
    8:56 pm on August 11th, 2014

    C.Hobbit: We loved Good Morning Vietnam too.
    Had heard there was supposed to be a sequel of Mrs. Doubtfire in the works.

    Barb&Maggie: Then perhaps this Terri is the same one.
    BTW: Do you have any Photos of your Lake Geneva Reunion?

  34. Barb & Maggie
    8:57 pm on August 11th, 2014

    I wonder if Spence and Rosenfelt have ever met. They both live in the east, both have Goldens, have an avid interest in dogs, and both write mysteries. I don’t believe he has ever said.

  35. Mollypop's Mom
    9:01 pm on August 11th, 2014

    This is an exciting evening. I can’t wait to see the pictures!

  36. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:10 pm on August 11th, 2014

    MollysMaw!…snicker!…I bet you can’t…heh!…I am trying to remember if BooBear’s Maw is one of the pack that cannot post photos on this here blog…..sniff!….We never hardly ever get any from her…wheeze!…That would be our luck with two great writers in the same room…(((sigh)))

  37. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:11 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Wait!…She has sent me photos through SDD before, so there is hope. She can send them to MollysMaw and then they will for sure be posted on this here blog. Hopefully, right-side up….grunt!

  38. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:13 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Packing!…Someone here has been busy packing for our trip down south tomorrow afternoon…heh!heh!…Sitting there watching her I was sure the kitchen-sink was going to go with us…wheeze!….And you should see the pile of books she is going to take for pawtographing…chuffle!

  39. Thieves!

    Rio: Have you picked out which bow tie you’re going to wear?

  40. c.hobbit
    9:41 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Rio: is your friend using her new blue suitcase?

  41. BooBear
    9:44 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Home! First, David Rosenfelt was not there. He wasn’t even mentioned so don’t know what happened. Great meet and greet. Full house. Mom always enjoys his functions. Mom got a few pictures!

  42. BooBear

  47. Riö -The Evil Pug
    9:52 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Hug!…That big bear-paw hug is the best photo ever!….sob!sob!sob!

  48. BooBear
    10:00 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Rio, Dad didn’t take the pics. Those with mom in them were taken by someone else and Mom took the ones of SQ by himself. He is such a nice guy. I can’t wait for you to meet him!

    Dad did have a really good time and enjoyed his talk very much so Mom is glad he felt like going.

  49. Barb & Maggie
    10:08 pm on August 11th, 2014

    You can tell from the way Spence is hugging Karen what a warm and caring person he is. That is not a professional greeting, but rather a heartfelt one. I think that is just one of the reasons he is OFA.

  50. Siber-H
    10:09 pm on August 11th, 2014

    BooBear, Fantastic pictures and thank you. I am so glad your dad enjoyed it and was able to go.

  51. Barb & Maggie
    10:10 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Does anyone know how to repost those pictures right side up? MPM?

  52. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:21 pm on August 11th, 2014

    SiberH!…My thoughts too! I am so glad BooBear’s Maw and Paw got to enjoy this night together…snorkel!…Spencer is a great guy and I bet the Charming Mr. Abrahams is even nicer, if that is possible!…heh!heh!

  53. BooBear
    10:23 pm on August 11th, 2014

    The pics are right on the iPad.

  54. Siber-H
    10:23 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Rio knows how to fix the pictures.

  55. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:26 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Barb!….Here ya go! Best book signing photo ever!…chuffle!

  56. Barb & Maggie
    10:26 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Sorry to hear that Rosenfelt was not there. Wonder what happened?

    So glad Boobear’s dad was there to enjoy the evening.

    Will be heading off to bed soon. Work is looming on the horizon.

    Masquers, There were some pictures taken at the lake, but none we have seen so far that we want to post.

  57. Siber-H

    Thank you, Rio

    10:31 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Right-side-up!…snort!…Weird how Spencer is out of focus and BooBears Maw is in focus…hmmmm!…That guy must have been moving at the time the foto was taken…heh!

  59. Barb & Maggie
    10:31 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Rio, thank you. Those are great pictures, especially the one of them hugging.

  60. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:35 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Signing!…He looks so happy sitting there signing BooBear’s Maw’s book!….snorkel!…Love it!

    Spence!…And his inner Cowboy!…snort!

    10:51 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Photos!…Best Photoz Ever!..snort!…Thank you BooBear’s Maw. You are amazing!…snorkel! …I know you had a great time tonight and Spencer did too!!!…Woooooo!

    Wow what great pictures from BooBear’s Mom and Pop. Thanks for turning the ones that needed it right side up Rio. Sigh. I wonder if he will ever come to Minneapolis. We do have an independent mystery bookstore called Once Upon A Crime but it seems to only do local authors. Hmmmmm. Maybe I should put in a good word for them with Admin….

  65. Siber-H
    10:57 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Yes, Thank you again BooBear’s mom, dad, and Spence.

    (and Rio)

    BooBear: Best Ever Photos of your Mom and OFA!!!
    Love it that your Dad had a Great Time too.

  67. Staff
    11:00 pm on August 11th, 2014

    And BooBear’s Mom is wearing her ChettheDog ID and, is that her passport???? It certainly looks like the envelope we sent the passports out in.

    Hmmmm that out in phrase sounds funny. I wonder what B will say about it.

    It certainly looks like the envelope in which we sent the passports.

    Oh well.

  68. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:05 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Staff!…My friend packed her passport tonight and my special stamp…snort!…Spencer will be the first to see it. Hopefully he has his passport or she will be stamping both of his big paws and his forehead instead…heh!heh!…Big talk from a shortie…sniff!

  69. Masquers
    11:06 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Thanks for turning the fotoz right side up, Riö.
    Everyone takes amazing pictures except someone here. sniff.
    Staff: Once Upon a Crime sounds intriguing. I’m sure you could convince Spence to add it to his book tour next time.

  70. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:08 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Nagging!…And outright Begging seems to work…snort!…Go for it Staff!…heh!heh!

  71. B.Stover
    11:08 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Great photos. Thank you all.

    Staff: Which sentence do you prefer?

  72. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:09 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Maskers!…I hate to say it, but that photo your Kat-Paws took of Nana and Spencer really bit dust…sniff!…It was so out-of-focus. Kat you have got to do better next time…grunt!

  73. Tupper and Gilly
    11:10 pm on August 11th, 2014

    BooBear – your mom is absolutely beautiful! What a wonderful smile. We are so glad your folks got to go and get hugged and passported.

    Rio – how will you ever get to sleep knowing that your meet and greet is coming up?

    That’s all for us tonight. G’night, family

  74. Siber-H
    11:10 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Masquers, You guys take good pictures.

    Night All

  75. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:12 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Tupper!….Why do you want more photoz of me?…sniff!…You have seen me plenty of times…heh!heh!cough!

  76. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:13 pm on August 11th, 2014

    SiberH!…Nana took good photos of Ventura, but Maskers did not come through at the book signing…grunt!,,,The vacation photos are excellant!!…snorkel!

  77. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:17 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Tupper!…Me and sleep are good friends…snort!..We always get along especially after 9:30pm or so…chuffle!…My little knapsack is all packed and ready to go for our trip tomorrow…snuffle!…I have no concerns tonight. But my friend may be wide awake all night long as she tends to fret about meeting a world-class-famous-author, her favorite of all times…sniff!…Not me. I will drop like a log when my flat-head hits my pillow, the one with the baseball toy under it…heh!burp!

  78. Staff
    11:23 pm on August 11th, 2014

    B. I really like the first sentence. I think saying “out in” is funny and it makes me smile.

  79. BearSpiritDog
    11:24 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Gah. It is so Uncomfortably Hot Here. It is almost half past eight and nary a cool spot to be found. Big Thunder Storms are predicted for later.

    Rio: Try to get some sleep. If you can.

    Signing off until the morning. Sleep tight Everyone – Bear

    Oh, my dog. I love OFA most of all, but I would have made the extra effort to get to Houston if I had known Rosenfelt would be there too. I just got Hounded at the library. PaO has finally been ordered and will be in soon I hope. I was the first to get Hounded and I better be the first to get PaO.

  81. Masquers
    11:29 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Staff: I like the first sentence too. Saying out in is kool.

  82. ML
    11:29 pm on August 11th, 2014

    Oops, I jumped ahead. Now I see there was no Rosenfelt. Bummer.

  83. Terri's Pal
    11:54 pm on August 11th, 2014

    THANKS for the welcome! Yes, Terri the Tervuren and I are back for a visit, hoping to score a book by having Terri’s photo thrown back in the ring/hat/whatever. Does anyone know how that works? …….. We’re kept pretty busy on FB with 300 friends (mostly with Tervs, Malinois, and/or Groenendaels). The truth is, we’re rather obsessed with viewing photos and short videos of all the dogs we know in North America and Europe. It’s hard to get anything else done during “non-outdoors” weather. When it isn’t too hot-wet-dark outside, we play in the yard.

  84. c.hobbit
    2:12 am on August 12th, 2014

    Great photos today. Welcome Terri’s Pal. I need to look up the breeds you mentioned.

  85. O'Howlers from OZ
    8:30 am on August 12th, 2014

    BooBear! Those are the greatest signing photos ever! Your mom looks fabulous, as does warm and loveable OFA. Thanks so much. If we never get to a book-signing, at least we can live vicariously through all of you lucky dogs and cats who do. Question: Did OFA have his passport with him?

    Welcome back, Terri. We have the same problem about too much fun (?????!!!!!) outdoors to have time on our iPaw.

  86. Herd of Hounds
    8:34 am on August 12th, 2014

    Mom is getting ready to go do her weekly library time and won’t be back till noonish. We will make sure she lets us on the ipaw then, but in the meantime, loved the fotos from last night. They were right side up both times for us so double the fun 🙂

  87. Wose-the small and meek
    8:56 am on August 12th, 2014


    Wow! Great photos from BooBear’s Mom. His mom is beautiful! I think I had something in my eye when I saw the very heart-felt hug Spence gave her. Spence seems like such a nice person.

    RIO! I am so excited for you and your friend, I could SPLORT! Maybe Spence will autograph one of your baseball toys. Maybe he will autograph you, and then you can have it tattooed! I really hope youse have a great time! AND THERE BETTER BE PICTURES!!!!

    HRH! B, A very nice GOOGLE Doodle of the perseid meteor showers.

  88. Billy's Buddy
    9:01 am on August 12th, 2014
