    Thank you for a real feel-good story. There really are some wonderful people in the world. Most of them animal lovers!

    Barb is off to her job. Have a great day everyone.

    BooBear, Is there any way your mom could just cut back on her hours and still keep her insurance benefits?

    Rio, I agree with you that Caleb should be the American Idol and if not, Jena. Sam will do well and I would buy his records. I like listening to him.

    Good morning Barb (and Maggie), Mollypop’s Mom, Rose the tiny and terrific,Herd of Hounds and B Stover.

    Wet, grey and rainy here.

    Dad is having trouble with his catheter and we are waiting for the nurse to arrive. She won’t get here until noon at the earliest. Meanwhile he wants to empty his almost empty catheter every 10 minutes because it “feels full”. It is going to be a long day.

    Thank you for that good news story. Strangely, tears came to my eyes while reading it.

    Wolfie Wigglebutt up top, blurring.

    Staff: This is happening so that on the day you leave for home your happiness will be double! Or triple!

    Still snowing. It is now a winter wonderland out there. This afternoon it is supposed to turn to rain. Oh joy.
    I know. This is happening so that when Spring comes I will be twice as happy. Or more.
    Think I’ll go back to bed for awhile.

  11. Masquers
    10:15 am on April 24th, 2014

    HOH: Lots of fun…happy to be back. ^..^
    Staff: Gloomy and rainy here too. Hope your very long day improves as it goes along.
    Dawson: So sorry about the spring snow, but like us weather types always say: We guarantee everything but the weather.

    Greetings all. Sometimes, it is nice just to be alone. We are here with just Mama for a while today. We are going to go sit outside in the sun since the back deck is protected from the whipping winds.

    We are going to miss Siber. Maybe the other “Head” will post a lot to keep us entertained.

    By the way, everyone say hi to BlueKat. Just cuz.

    Hi BlueKat! We love you.

    Hello all. That was a very nice story about a very generous tipper. Thanks for posting that, Spence and Admin.
    Hi BlueKat! You know we love you. That is why we gave our Blockhead such and Irish name. heh heh!

    Howlers: We miss Siber already and, as Dawson suggested, it is now up to Zeus to fill in for him while he is on vaca.

  23. Masquers

    He probably finds them very tasty, I know I do. -Lucy Lou
    Mr. Blockhead Zeus, I am an adorable 15 month old Newf gal who is looking for a paw pal. You seem like a big, strapping Siber. Interested? -Darah Thea

    Love you, Bluecat!

    Touching story about Tucker.

    Welcome back to Nana and her companions. We missed you.

    Greetings and loving thoughts to all the rest of you.

    It is dreary, 40 degrees, and raining hard in this part of Wisconsin today. I am making chicken noodle soup to counteract the weather.

    Heh, heh.
    Masquers: Tupper and Gilly were the ones @ 10:52 that mentioned “the other Head” keeping us entertained while SiberH was gone. Credit given.

    I forgot to wish SiberH an excellent vacation away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Enjoy the peace and quiet amid wide open spaces.

  30. dawson
    12:16 pm on April 24th, 2014

    One more thing before I go:
    Chicken noodle soup! Delish!

  31. Blockhead of the O'Howler Pack
    12:22 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Siber-H, how could you leave me all alone with nothing but Siber girls and non-Siber friends? You are my ally, pal.
    Darah, you do sound adorable, but this lady tells me you are about as big as those horses that have me all riled up.

    Speaking of that lady: she told some folks that I am ready for my diploma. Wonder what that means?

  32. Wose-the small and meek
    12:25 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Scritches, scratches , and headbumps to you Bluecat. Love you lots!

    12:53 pm on April 24th, 2014

  40. Blockhead of the O'Howler Pack
    12:58 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Trigger, I can counter-surf with the best of them. Everything in this house was suddenly moved way way up, for some reason.

  41. Herd of Hounds
    1:55 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Mr. Blockhead, see, ‘xactly my point. I can reach most anything you want, counter, table low cabinets, fence rail. Oh, and I am blurring better and better every day :)

  42. Blockhead of the O'Howler Pack
    2:20 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Darah, if they ever let me off my leash or out of my kennel, maybe you and I can go round the block a time or two. {wink}

  43. Herd of Hounds
    2:27 pm on April 24th, 2014

    No kennel here but know the leash and fence:( Shouldn’t be too long till you get a little respect.

  44. BearSpiritDog
    2:46 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Hounds: And “Who” might You be? Darah?

  45. Goofball of the Chevy Chase Clan
    2:54 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Hi Blockhead and Dara. Here in Chevy Chase, I’m being strongly discouraged from that counter surfing type of activity. However, it is another matter if stuff is left at my level. Like yesterday, with mom’s raspberries and whippped cream for breakfast. Boy was that certainly yummy.

  46. Herd of Hounds
    2:54 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Bingo :) Did it show?

  47. O'Howlers
    3:07 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Way to go,Goofball! Did you really eat the rasberries AND the whipped cream?

  48. Siber-H
    3:10 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Greetings,

    I am still here. We are not leaving until early in the morning.
    The mechanic isn’t finished with my truck. It is just as well because we received a SDD from Amalia, which I will reply to in a few minutes.

    Thank you for all your good vacation wishes.

    My good pal, the Blockhead, will keep you company in all things male Siber while I am gone. He is already flirting, Way to go, guy.

    Bluekat, We do love you.

  49. Siber-H
    3:12 pm on April 24th, 2014

    It looks as though Teddy may not need to attend Trigger’s school of the fine counter surfing arts.

  50. C.hobbiti
    3:19 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Oodles of noodles from Turkey. Tomorrow a travel day for the most part but will go to a carpet factory and at night see the Whirling Dervishes (the people not the dogs). In two days I will be in a hot air balloon –maybe.

    I posted once on the blog (your yesterday)and will post when I can. Since I am taking photos with my phone rather than iPad, my photos are not on the right device to send.

    Lots of feral cats but not too many dogs. The ones I have seen do not have collars and aren’t on a leash –but are usually near a person.

    MPM: even thought I paid to have international texting, nothing is going through.

  51. Masquers
    3:30 pm on April 24th, 2014

    CHobbiti: Sounds like a super trip and first class all the way.
    Siber: Glad you are still here…that will be one day less to miss you.
    Goofball: You can’t fool us…we all recognize our pal Teddy…er, except for the counter-surfing part that is.

  52. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    3:37 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Vait just minutes here. If Natasha is going to do the camping in the voods, ve must have proper bug spray, net of mosquito proof, and high heel, lace up camp-type boots.

    Is very hard to keep up vith demands. Natasha – go follow doggies through ice and snow in Iditarod. Natasha – go vith Siber to camp and make sure he is not hor d’eorves for bears. Natasha – spy on Commander Bee and Rio…oh, vait a minute, ve are not supposed to tell you that von. Never mind.

  53. Mollypop's Mom

  76. Siber-H
    7:26 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Ok, all of you that think they want to can come camping with me. We don’t just camp…we do a lot of four-wheeling on all the jeep roads in that country.
    The Reds will be our primary hunters, while the Heads advise them on the best hunting strategy.

    8:19 pm on April 24th, 2014

    Commander Bee – ve have been given very important job to find best and vorst langvage vernacularity so vhen other not as glamorous spies come to vatch American customs, they vill have as good command of English as Natasha does.
    Ve have filed reports to not say “read” as verb, and vhen to use “its” and “it’s”. Is very helpful to have great and powerful English Professor as example.
    You see how good is Natasha’s English? Ve no longer even say “base of balls” for silly national sport.
    Is all credit to Commander Bee.

  84. Herd of Hounds

    Good morning! We are worried about Macy’s maw not eating. We here seldom skip a meal.
    We all slept like zombies last night, except for Pop who got called back in to work. He is up now, but feels like a zombie.
    Meashka sleeps in the bed that says “Katrina”. Zeus sleeps in the bed that says “Meashka”. And Kat, of course, sleeps in the bed that used to be Mom and Pop’s. Heh! That’s how we roll here at Howling Arabians.
