Quote Of The Day 10/30/09

"Nor crown nor coin can halt time's flight,

or stay the armies of the night.

King and villain, lad and lass,

all answer to the hour glass."

-"The Enchanted World: Ghosts" By Time-Life Books

Lonesome Note

Anne informed us that Brown Dog was spotted at a nearby park, and what do we find?

It looks as if Brown Dog has left a note, and an old picture of better times remembered. Since humans are unable to read K-9, I will let Miss Gracie interpret the wise words Brown Dog has left us with.

Remember humans, reading K-9 is much like reading ancient, Egyptian hieroglyphics. Except K-9 mostly consist of squiggly lines and triangles, much harder to interpret for most. Lets begin:

To former, and maybe current friends,

I have decided to return to the home country of Treviso, Italy. There are many Brown Dogs in Treviso, it is a place where Brown Dogs can run free. Also, I shamefully embezzled three thousand bones worth of Charlee Bears, straight from Mr. Shadowcaster's stash. I just have an insatiable appeitite for those things, only three calories, come on! I hope this letter finds you and your shadows a quick reuinion."

Brown Dog...

All we can do is look to the heavens, and hope this letter appeases Mr. Shadowcaster. Until then, stop by Monday morning and see how our Halloween bash turns out. In the mode of party we shall defeat our sorrow.

Quote Of The Day 10/29/09

"There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery."

-Joseph Conrad

Snake Direction

So, we continue on with our quest to find...okay, I know, you know, so let's just listen in on Mandy's conversation with a local street snake:

Mandy: Coils! I love it when you guys coil up! Teach me! Teach me please!

Snake: I know of whom you sssssearch.

Mandy: You've seen Brown-

Snake: Yesssss

Mandy: Say that word one more time...

Snake: You mean yesssss?

Mandy: Ha! It's True! The sterotypes about a snake's speech impediments are true!  Hey "Tank" you got to come see this!

Snake: Yesssss, the sterotypesssss about our ssssspeech impedimentsssss are true.

Mandy: Wow, just like in the story books. Well, which way did he go?

Snake: That way.

Mandy: Which way?

Snake: That way.

Mandy: Wait a minute, which...

After convincing Mandy that a snake could not point in any particular direction, we were able to continue on with our journey. Hold on....Anne is calling on the radio....he's been spotted where?

Quote Of The Day 10/28/09

"Wealthy people miss one of life's greatest thrills . . . Making the last car payment."


Between A Bee And A Shih-Tzu

On the ever-continuous journey to find Brown Dog, Gracie encounters yet another acquaitance of the wandering soul:

Gracie: Bee, Have you seen Brown Dog?

Bee: Excuse me I have a problem today.

Gracie:What’s your problem?

Bee: I’ve been sniffing pollen for three days straight. Arrrrrrr…my wings are numb. Have I seen a dog, which is of the shade brown? No, I have not. Mmmmmm…pollen…mmmmm….pollen is ymmmmy for the tummy.

I advised Miss Gracie to keep walking. It is becoming obvious the type of company Brown Dog kept outside "The Family".

Quote Of The Day 10/26/09

"The lack of money is the root of all evil."

-Mark Twain

Have You Seen Brown Dog Cat?

On the journey I met up with Miss Mittens, a former friend of Brown Dog. So, I thought it would be a grand idea to ask her a few questions. This is how the conversation went:

"Miss Mittens, have you seen Brown Dog pass through this way?"

"In order to find your desire,
You must first cross the mire.

But, if I'm a liar,
You will only be filled with ire."

There are many problems with this conversation. Let’s begin with this thought; I am of Shi-Tzu heritage, not poodle. So what the heck does ire mean? To continue, why do cats always talk in riddles? One day humans will learn that this is the only reason dogs chase cats, the riddles drive us insane! Most importantly, the Deep South does not have mires! We only have redneck quicksand (leaky septic tanks) and that I will never cross. I yearn for the old days, the days of a good heist. Charity work, I mean. Donations. You know.

To Embark

"I give you my blessing, go forward and find Brown Dog, and retrieve your shadows." Well, with Big M's approval we depart on our mission. Anne will stay back at the snuggery hunkered down in the the communications room. If we encounter the unthinkable she will radio for backup, we can only hope this is a short trip. After all, Halloween is just a few days away, and I'm supposed to be throwing a bash for all my associates.
