    Good morning everyone, especially Teddy. I’ve never seen a Golden puppy before and they are wonderfully gorgeous. What a happy face.

    Gooood morning, everyone, especially Teddy. Young man, you have a marvelous namesake. Dog bless you.

    Mom is a Captain Grumpy Pants this a.m. as the boarder in the basement awakened her at 2:20 a.m. to be taken to the E.R. with a toothache on the morning before starting a new job. She says she thought own kids were a pain, but it is looking like strays are just the same.

    Since she is a little behind the curve, let’s just say, “Monday, again, already?”

    I have never seen a golden puppy either. Teddy is just the cutest puppy ever. You have a wonderful forever home, and a wonderful mentor who will be watching from the Rainbow Bridge, and enjoying every minute of your puppyhood.

    Wookie’s Dad and Mom: I’m thinking that picture would make a good auction item. Can Teddy pawprint yet? 🙂

    Teddy, you are adorable.

    Good morning all.

    Belle Starr: I think your two-legged is just as tough as my two-legged, Grizz. “No” is the only word in his vocabularly.
    Like you, I particularly want baby animals, but all I hear is “No” this and “No” that.

    I know how you feel. I hear the same thing your two-legged says “Iloveyoubutthisisnotgoingtohappen.” AT least you get tummies…..

    But Wose,if you has one of us, we’d rub your tummy.

    Swoon! We here are in love with Teddy!

    Yark! Did I hear Rio correctly? Did he volunteer to potty train Teddy? Or did I misunderstand?

    I hope Tenzing and Beau are feeling better.

    WW: You heard it! Take out an ad! Has Rio lost it, or is he mellowing?

    The expression “shoe-button eyes” comes to mind when looking at Teddythepup. Just want to cuddle him all over.

    10:43 am on July 22nd, 2013

    We are totally in love with Teddy Ruff Rider. Youse guys have seen pictures of a Golden pup before. Pearl is a Golden too. She is just a lighter color.

    Barb is making home made basil pesto and will be freezing it. Our kitchen smells like basil and garlic. Very aromatic.

  11. O'Howlers
    10:44 am on July 22nd, 2013

    Good morning, Teddy! You make us smile just looking at you. What a zest for life, and what a great life this will be!
    Hello to all. Did youse think Mom did the right thing with that wandering doggie yesterday? She isn’t sure…

  12. Herd of Hounds
    11:13 am on July 22nd, 2013

    OH: No guilt! Mom did exactly right. Cute kiddo. Either her family is out of their minds or out in left field.

  13. Barb & Maggie
    11:15 am on July 22nd, 2013

    Yes, we think you did the right thing, Oleys. We still can’t believe neighbors saw the dog hanging around all week and did nothing. A Shih tzu is a little small for your pack.

    Pesto is made and in the freezer in an ice cube tray. one doz. pesto cubes. All you do is add a frozen cube to pasta and add a little Pecoroni or Romanno cheese. Basil is from our herb garden.

    Teddy!…If youse guys would read every word, you would know exactly what I meant about Teddy and being house broken…snort!grump!…I’m in a seriously bad mood today. And my bobble head is broken. Tulo’s headless!…grumble!

    I am going to be having a “Snoozing Monday”. Dog, but I’m tired.

    Teddy of Chevy Chase has a certain look in his eye . . hmm, a bit like Pancho and Lefty.

    Couldn’t do it yesterday, but here is something for Chet and Bernie. Here in the Hills the Jambs are quiet, dark and cool.

    From ” The 21st” photo essay,

  16. Staff
    12:12 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    for Rio’s friend. She needs a break…


  17. Barb & Maggie
    12:21 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Good one Staff. That is a rockin granny.

    Rio’s friend and Rio. Hope the day gets better.

  18. SnowBella
    12:29 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Am I the only one who suspects the drumming granny is Natasha in disguise?

  19. Siber-H
    12:35 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Teddy has made the front page of the blog! We are so happy for Wookie’s mom and dad and Teddy is adorable. We won’t be able to call him baby Teddy for very long.

    Rio, As you know, Tulo is very injury prone. That may be why his head broke.

    Fellow Sibers, Yes, We think your mom did the right thing with the wondering dog yesterday. My mom has had to do the same thing. If the little dog’s owner does not claim him/her, that dog should get adopted. Its chances are very good.

  20. Barb & Maggie
    12:40 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Cute little fluffy dogs are highly adoptable. The ones that have a hard time finding forever homes and pits, large black dogs and seniors.

  21. O'Howlers
    12:49 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Our Humane Society is a no-kill shelter. We see mostly pits available for adoption there. Sniff.
    Thanks for weighing in, everybody. Mom is afraid that little doggie knew exactly where her home was, and that now her owner won’t find her. Maybe that is for the best, because the owner is very irresponsible if that’s the case.

  22. O'Howlers
    12:51 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Pop said that little doggie knew nothing other than running in circles? heh!

    Mom found us a new farm sitter. We will be meeting her tonight, even though we will not be staying home the next vacation!!! Hurray!

  23. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:51 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    SiberH!…snort!heh!snort!….That is very true about Tulo. My friend says she will put him on the DL and try to rehabilitate him this evening….snort!…She is pretty good with glue, so I have high hopes. Fotos forth coming…heh!heh!

  24. Barb & Maggie
    12:54 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    We all know Barb is picky, picky picky right?

    Here is another irratation – the over use of “hashtag”. You hear it constantly and it really bugs Barb.

  25. Siber-H
    12:59 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Rio, I have faith your friend can fix Tulo.

    Fellow Sibers, In my mom’s experience, it is sometimes definately for the best if the dog does not go back to its original owner.

  26. Siber-H
    1:05 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Barb? I have never heard the word “hashtag” What does it mean?

  27. Pancho & Lefty
    1:19 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Melanie: We may have made a visit to Teddy last night.

    Howlers: You did the right thing. Never second guess your heart—we learned that from our Lady.

    B&M: We heard talk today of the royal baby and thought of you. We also thought of Tupper and Gilly, but we haven’t heard anything about them expecting.

  28. Herd of Hounds
    1:22 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Barb: Mom is with you on “hashtag” What is that?

    OH: aA shelter should always be “NO KILL”: or it is not a shelter, like the Chet one.

  29. Herd of Hounds
    1:48 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Woswer, going to rain here. Not as hot as it has been BUT dogs think the heat is excessive.

    Linda, pretzels arrived. Wowser, wowser, wowser! Thank you!

  31. BearSpiritDog
    2:00 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Teddy: What a Great Welcome from Chet. You are definitely Top Dog!

    Who loves ya Baby (birds)? Staff does that’s who.

    O’Howlers: Never fear…your Mom did the right thing

    Wose! July 21st…National Ice Cream Day…How could we have Forgotten! Whine.

    Royals: A Really Good Shew! That’s what we wanted to hear. AND a visit from OFA…Icing on the Cake.

    Barb&Magpie: Hashtag? What does it mean and how is it used?

  32. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:25 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Bear!…If you don’t Tweet it doesn’t matter…grunt!

  33. Pancho
    2:30 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Tweet? We here are more yarkers, barkers and howlers. Except for Lefty. Since getting his paws on Whitey-Lance’s coaching whistle, he has a little something extra in his bark.

  34. Macy
    2:36 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    I know I am a dog, but cats crack me up!

  35. B. Stover
    2:52 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Siber-H: I think that the hashtag is the # symbol used by people who use Twitter. It is either the subject matter or their code name.

  36. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:11 pm on July 22nd, 2013


    He rocks in the tree tops all day long
    Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
    All the little birdies on Jaybird Street
    Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet

    Rockin’ robin, tweet tweet tweet
    Rockin’ robin’ tweet tweetly-tweet
    Blow rockin’ robin
    ‘Cause we’re really gonna rock tonight….snort!

  37. Barb & Maggie
    3:11 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Hashtag is the pound sign and it is used in Tweeting and Twitter. Not sure exactly what it means, Bee is probably right though. When the announcer is reading the email or tweet or whatever,they are always saying “hashtag” and it is like nails on a chalkboard. We think it is dumb!

    Yes, the world is on the Royal Baby watch. Kate is in labor, but we haven’t had the news on for a couple of hours, so not sure of the progress. Can’t believe the amount of interest in that wee one.

  38. Melanie
    3:12 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    My view

    Melanie has an easy chair of her own.

    3:14 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Just when I thought we were on a roll yesterday the dam power when out. Why? Who knows…not a cloud in the sky nor storm on the horizon.
    Riö: Oh, no. A broken Tulo bobble head and a 20th anniversary one at that. Paws crossed the repair surgery is a success.
    But Siber is right…the injury fits his persona.
    Melanie: Quiet, dark and kool…sounds & looks good to me…and btw: great view!
    Bella: New item in the boutique…now you see it, now you don’t…sold, sold, sold!
    HOH: Manic Monday? Or is that a repeat?
    Wonder how our resident Hobbit is doing?

  41. O'Howlers
    3:15 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    HOH, Good point about shelters.

  42. dawson
    3:19 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Melanie: A chair with a view. Nice.

  43. BearSpiritDog
    3:22 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Rio: I Do Tweet. I do and have done so for years. Just haven’t done so in a while (that’s why my Memory has failed me) And, when I do it’s mostly with Chet.

    Hounds & Howlers: Yes, we agree…a “Shelter” MUST live up to the name or it is something else indeed as Chet knows first paw.

  44. Siber-H
    3:22 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    hashtag…Thanks Stover and Barb.

    On behalf of Little Teddy we want to thank Spence and everyone on the blog for the incredibly gracious welcome he has received. He is really looking forward to posting himself, which should come pretty soon. And he has already sent a message to Commander Rio on his go phone that he is working hard on that housebreaking thing, but it will take a while longer. However, he has found some of the training manuals that fearless Agent 00Wookie had prepared, and Is already busy trying to master all the basic skills. He knows that he has big paws to fill, but he is eager to get started as soon as he can.

  46. Tupper and Gilly
    3:34 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Home – Home – Mama is home. All is right with the world again.

    We know nothing about the insipient birth of a royal two-legged. All we know is that all of our Royal cousins have been “tutored” – so no Royal births that we would give a hoot about anyway.

    We do love that little Teddy face. Never met a puppy that couldn’t make Mama go all mooshy.

    Not so much with bobble heads though….

  47. O'Howlers
    3:37 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Holy Moley! We just went to Snowhook to contribute $ for our very own Plunderer Passport, and while there, we stopped by the Musher Boutique. What to our surprise did we find: chickens!!!!! Hurray!

  48. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:55 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Chickens!…Awwwww, does this mean that Barb missed out on the antique Chickens?…heh!heh!

  49. Melanie
    3:58 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    I am a laid back kind of gal. Not much bothers me, but when a certain line is crossed? Well . . Let us just say that my inner mother from h*** breaks loose.
    People think that I am easy to live with and I am to a point, but I ain’t no doormat.

    Soooo, some guy gets on MY youtube channel and proceeds to lecture me about cutting back The Pack’s fur. As if I didn’t know anything? Implying that I am not a good dog owner?

    Yeah, right.

    In what appears to be an instructive reply, I laid him low and mashed him under my sneakers. Frigging Carpolaistic Fnigglefritzer.

    That pontificator probably won’t notice . . But I feel better.

  50. Herd of Hounds
    4:46 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Melanie : carpolistic etc,,, wowser!
    Ya”ll tell ’em sweetie girl.

  51. Barb & Maggie
    5:37 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Our pretzels arrived with some chipotle mustard a few minutes ago. Yea! Will have with a cocktail later.

    The Royal baby has arrived and it is a boy! No name yet, but a healthy, 8 lbs. 6 oz. Most people who care to speculate thought it was going to be a girl. For a 2 legged he will probably be really cute!

  52. Macy
    5:42 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    This is Melanie when you rile her up.

  53. Macy
    5:46 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Or maybe this:

    5:50 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Pip, pip and all that! Hopefully the Middleton genes can override the Windsors.

  55. Barb & Maggie
    5:52 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    We would not want to mess with a Poodled Up Melanie! Macy, you nailed it with those shots!

    Linda the pretzels are delish. Thank you again.

  56. O'Howlers
    6:24 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    OMD! We were in jail all day, and we haven’t checked the UPS stall yet.

    Melanie, you cracked us up. But we mean that nicely!

    Macy, we like all your pictures, especially the cat one eaelier. As if…

  57. O'Howlers
    6:27 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Carpola! We hit enter too soon. Did you read that great story Chet posted on FB on the right? And speaking of FB, Jasper has a hurt leg! He is going for X-rays.
    Macy, we totally agree with you on the genes. Paws crossed.

  58. Melanie
    6:38 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Macy, how did you know? Also, I saw a picture of a minpin looking dog with three pups having lunch on her (so to speak) on the right side of my screen. Was that you and your crew?

  59. Melanie
    6:41 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Okay, The Nation Within are Fantastic. Let’s just agree to that and move towards being like them.

    6:51 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    RIO! Sorry Tulo lost his head. Please check your SDD when able.

    I still can’t get over how cute that Teddy is. I just wanna squeeze him.

  61. Herd of Hounds
    7:14 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Oh, yeah… the snigglefritzer and carpolitic should add to his vocabulary!

    7:35 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Rose!…Tulo lost his head…sniff!…But my friend will try and repair him…grunt!…So far she says she’s too tired to take on the task of putting his head back on…grump!

    Barb!…Did you see the chickens?…heh!heh!

  63. O'Howlers
    7:53 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Rio! Shhhhh…somebody get those chickens out of there before Barb hunts us down!

  64. Pancho & Lefty
    7:56 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    It’s true. The Howlers now have more chickens so to speak.

  70. Barb & Maggie
    9:09 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    Yea, you are right. By the time we saw them Oleys had scooped them up. But that’s ok, they went to a good home. Awfully cute tho!

    BSD, Major Crimes is on, then King and Maxwell right after.

    Good night all, and sweet dreams little Teddy.

    Whew! We’re glad Barb isn’t mad at us.

    Tulo!…It has been a VERY long time since that guy hit a home run…sniff!…I’m thinking it was way back in early June sometime…grunt!…She cannot get his head to stick with the glue she has for paper. She needs SUPER GLUE! But her mother used every drop in the house on dawg knows what!…grunt!

  84. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:45 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    SiberH!…I know! A video! How in the world?…grunt!…She says she kept hearing Rose’s voice saying “Take photos! Take Photos dammit!”…snort!… This is something she usually does not do because she is so busy Eating, Drinking Beer, and Watching for Fly Balls that she usually skips the photo part…heh!heh!

  85. Siber-H
    10:53 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    I’m glad she heard Rose’s voice. That is a fun video.

    Disclaimer!…That is NOT my friend laughing on the video…grunt!…If she laughed like that I would pack my little knapsack and hit the road…sniff!

  87. Siber-H
    11:02 pm on July 22nd, 2013

    That laughing cracked me up, but I somehow knew it was not your friend. There are some interesting crowd noises in that video.
