    And speaking of eggs…Peg and Helen are at the vet. Something about a bumblebee foot. Gah!

    Terri’s Pal: Thanks for stopping by last night.
    Long Time No Post. We wondered what had
    happened to you.
    Your question about the notarious RNG (Random Number Generator) and selection of FriendOfTheMonth? No one really knows how it works. We just cross our paws and hope for the best.

    O’Howlers: Poor Peg and Helen. But What in Dawg’s name is Bumble Bee Foot?

    Rio: Too bad Siber-H can’t chauffeur youse in the Porsche. You’d be at The Tattered Cover in no time.

    11:21 am on August 12th, 2014

    Mom is still smiling about last night. Thank you for all the kind word about the pictures. Thanks should go to the iPad! The only thing that would have made last night better would have been if David Rosenfelt had been there too. Wonder what happened with that.

    Mom did wear her badge and had her passport signed and Chet paw printed. SQ did not have his passport with him so Mom didn’t get to put my special stamp in it. Maybe next time……

    Hey, y’all. We are twirling and chasing tails in anticipation of the Rio/Spence meet. Loved all the fotos last night 🙂

  14. Siber-H
    11:56 am on August 12th, 2014

    I am so excited for Rio! He is really going to enjoy the evening. I wish I could drive him there over the toll road in the Porsche as Bear suggested.

    Howlers? Who are Peg and Helen? I don’t know what Bumble Bee Foot is but I think Zeus should be kept away from it.

  15. Siber-H
    11:58 am on August 12th, 2014

    okay, I think Peg and Helen must be chickens.

  16. BearSpiritDog
    12:10 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Siber-H: Rio would welcome your Calming Influence about now.

    Do youse think Spence was Pulling Our Tails about the David Rosenfelt collaboration?

  17. O'Howlers
    12:14 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Siber, Heh Heh Heh! Helen and Peg are chickens…all the more reason that Zeus is being kept away!

    Mom tells us it is called Bumble Foot and she is sure Barb knows all about that. They are fine…it was caught before any issues were occurring. It could have been treated at home if Mom and Pop weren’t such chickens…heh heh!

  18. Siber-H
    12:16 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Bear, Mom just said Spence might not show up if Rio and I were together. She just thinks she is funny sometimes.

    I’m so exicted for Rio and Friend — and for OFA, too. He is in for a treat.

    Those photos of BooBear’s Mom and Spence were the bee’s knees (speaking of Bumble Foot) — chortle.

    Whoo hoo, the sky just opened up here with hail, wind BIG rain drops (and the requisite thunder). We are on dust bunny patrol for a few minutes.

  24. Herd of Hounds
    2:49 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Oh boy, 20 minutes later it is sunny with puffy white clouds, birds chirping and butterflies on the butterfly bush.

  25. Masquers
    2:58 pm on August 12th, 2014

    HOH: Rainy day here after yesterday’s highest temps ever!

  26. Siber-H
    3:06 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Mom is turning off my computer…something to do with unsupervised online shopping…because she will be away this afternoon. Carpola, I wanted to be here to give Rio moral support, but know that I am with you in spirit, pal.

  27. Herd of Hounds
    3:15 pm on August 12th, 2014

    But Masquers, you said you wanted some of our warm weather back in June when y’all were still being “fungus corners”. It just took us a while to get it there 🙂

  28. Masquers
    3:33 pm on August 12th, 2014

    HOH: wE do appreciate your efforts 🙂

  29. Herd of Hounds

    And it looks like Wookie and family are really catching some rain today, too. Hope it isn’t too deep.

    Hey, OFA…TONIGHT, DENVER…tomorrow a week’s rest before Mystic, Conn.
    And here is what OFA’s schedule can do to anyone!

  34. Tupper and Gilly
    4:48 pm on August 12th, 2014

    ewwww – we just looked up bumblebee foot in chickens – ick. We would be too “chicken” to deal with it too.

    Our butterfly bush isn’t getting much in the way of butterflies, but we are getting hummingbirds. Not a bad trade off all in all.

    Siber – we think your Mom is correct – the combination of you and Rio in the same room would give paws to the bravest soul. Just remember what happened when we all went to the Really Big Wedding at the palace a coupe of years back. Sheesh, the royal gardens will never be the same.

  35. BearSpiritDog

    WE just tried this approach to dinner. Only mom’s nose and toes were exposed when we ganged up on her…it worked…burp!

    5:23 pm on August 12th, 2014

    HoH; Yes, we had some fairly torrential downpours here most of the day, with some flooding of low lying streets near us. Even a bit of water seeped into the basement, not too bad but it has actually been quite some time since that has happened. At least our killer squash plants are soaking it all up.

  38. Herd of Hounds
    5:32 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Wookie & Teddy’s Dad, Sorry about the basement, glad about the squash (drinking, not killing).

    Rio, I didn’t get to go see Spence either when he was here. It will be okay. Our kind is discriminated against.

  41. Riö -The Evil Pug
    6:14 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Hotel!…She says she “accidentally” booked a hotel that is not freindly to gassy pugs…grunt!

  42. Siber-H
    6:28 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Rio, Bookstores don’t want us either.

    I think it was very wise of your friend to get a hotel room instead of driving back and forth.

  43. Riö -The Evil Pug
    6:35 pm on August 12th, 2014

    SiberH!…She is as blind as a bat. There was no way in hell she would have made it home after the Event…snort!

  44. Siber-H
    6:57 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Rio, Your friend should eat a bit of dinner before the event.

  45. Barb & Maggie
    7:03 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Looking forward to hearing about Rio’s friend’s visit with Spence later tonight. Have fun. Too bad Rio has to stay home.

    I have heard of the chicken problem, but it is bumble foot not bumblebee foot, I believe. We never had a chicken that got it and I thought it was fairly rare. If you have two chickens with it, I would do some reading on preventative measures. Backyard Poultry Mag. might be a good place to start. It could have something to do with the height of the roosts or maybe splinters they are getting from the roosts. I think it generally starts with cuts that get infected. Also, I think they can be prone to it if they don’t get calcium added to their food. That is all I know.

    The big happening tonight is at 9 PM Eastern time. I may have to wait until tomorrow but I’m so anxious to hear what happens.

    Thinking of DianeC. and Wose and Billy’s Buddy and Bluekat and ML tonight. That’s the problem with summer…vacays…dog daze…doldrums. T&G, give all the 2 leggers there a hug ’cause we know they get busy.

    8:23 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Since Friend “accidentally” booked a room that is not gassy-pug friendly, we feel it our duty to blur by his yard with beer and hot wings in paw to help him feel better about not seeing OFA. We are also going to bring zingers for medicinal purposes only.

  50. Siber-H
    8:37 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Hey Thieves, The Porsche and I are on our way.
    It’s Partee time for those of us left out of the Event.

    SiberH: You had us at, ‘Hey Thieves.’

  52. Siber-H
    8:47 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Thieves, I found a loophole here. Mom didn’t say I couldn’t go visit Rio. She only said she didn’t want me and Rio going to the Event together.

  53. O'Howlers from OZ
    8:49 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Barb, our perch in the coop is a standard height. Maybe the one in the run is a bit higher. Most people probably would have ever noticed this issue. Pop is very observant when it comes to his girls. We do wonder if it could be caused by the shavings they use. They get those delivered bulk for the horses, and Po says they could cause splinters. Now they are re-thinking the idea of sand instead.

  54. Herd of Hounds
    8:50 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Thieves and Siber H, the boarder in the basement is home this week and brought some applejack. Should we blur by with that and apple pie?

  55. BearSpiritDog
    8:51 pm on August 12th, 2014

    dO I smell a Partay?

  56. Thieves!

    Loopholes are one of our favorite inventions along with denying everything, admitting nothing, diversions and being forgiven.

  57. Thieves!
    8:58 pm on August 12th, 2014

    BSD: It is very possible what you are smelling has something to do with a gassy pug. It’s hard to say.

  58. Siber-H
    9:07 pm on August 12th, 2014

    HOH By all means blurr by. You too, Bear and Masquers, and everyone else that wants to see the Rocky Mountains from Rio’s backyard and Partee with us.

  59. Herd of Hounds
    9:09 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Some of the aroma could be sushi pond on Darah’s hair. Hang on, we’ll be there in 2 shakes oh a lamb’s tail.

  60. Masquers
    9:13 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Siber: Heh, heh…while his friend is away we can bribe her mother with Zingers while we partee on.

    Hey! Over on the right…is that a foto of Spence on the ferry to Bainbridge Island the other day?

  62. Herd of Hounds

    Masquers, what good eyes you have!

  63. Herd of Hounds

    It’s okay, Rio. Just relax, have a snack and some liquid refreshment. Wowser, would you look at that view!

    Oh,dear, we are fading fast. Enjoy the pie and shine. We will catch up in the a.m.

  67. Siber-H
    9:46 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Masquers, The photo must be of Spence on the ferry. Scroll down a couple of pictures and there is one of Spence with the Space Needle in the background.

  68. Masquers
    10:13 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Siber: Thanks for the tip!

    10:58 pm on August 12th, 2014

    YEEEEP!…My friend just sent me a text on my little Go-Phone!….snort!…She said she got to hug ole Spencer (a couple of times!!)…grunt!…Not sure I am liking the sound of that…sniff!…Anyway, she found her way back to the hotel in the dark with a good friend who showed up…Wooooo!…Lets just say it was an evening to remember in oh so many ways….snorkel!…Details may or may not be forthcoming as she is so tired she cannot focus …yeeeep!…This calls for a double somersault into the Vat O’ Beer!…WOOOOOOOO!

    We here watched an episode of “Too Cute” today that featured tiny Corgis. Is there anything cuter. I can’t thing of anything right off hand. They fell of everything they attempted and rolled like tumble bugs. Just like the name said: too cute!

    What are the odds that we get pictures from the meet and greet tonight? I’m giving 101 to 1. Pretty sure Rio’s friend works for the NSA.

  80. Riö -The Evil Pug

    Detail!…One thing I am going to blab about is this. My friend and her good friend did not sit in the front row and she did not wear her badge, the one with me on it…grump!…So Spencer did not know who she was so he deviously told the story of the blog and then of the Quilt…snort!…Mind you he did not mention me once in this story. But he went on to totally embarrass my friend by naming her name and asking if she was in the audience and to please Stand Up…gasp!gurgle!…Well she was totally beside herself and for some reason she did stand up. Why? I will never know. The rest is a blurr. The standing up part, not the whole evening…sniff!

  84. Thieves!
    11:45 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Hope she remembered her Camera!

  86. Staff
    11:58 pm on August 12th, 2014

    Heh heh heh. Poor friend of Rio. You tried to fly under the radar and got caught. Heh heh heh. That will teach you to not wear your badge. If you had worn it he wouldn’t have had to ask you to stand up. teehee. And you had to stand up when he asks otherwise Spence would have thought you didn’t come! That would have been AWFUL!

    Nighty noodle…all y’all see you tomorrow.

    12:53 am on August 13th, 2014

    Photo!…For MinPin…heh!…This is a shot of the gift my friend gave Spencer (the baseball bag in front of him) and a small portion of her books piled on the corner of the table that he was going to sign…snort!…The Plunderer Passport was in that pile somewhere…heh!heh!…She stepped aside to let some other people who only had 3 or 4 books go before her. Going to the end of the line never worked – people kept lining up to get their books signed…heh!
