Bones Aplenty!

Hi Everybuddy -

Did you know we have a star among us? Yep - we sure do! I am very proud to announce that I know a real author! Many of you may already know Ari and her blog - Out With Ari. Ari has written a book about her explorations with a little help from her Mom, Kathryn of course. It can now be found on your local bookstore's shelf as well as purchased online.

We'd like to congratulate both of them on this impressive accomplishment. You can read about it by clicking here. We've placed a link to the book on our sidebar. If you're looking for a great read, please get your Mom's plastic card and buy a copy!

Now, I'd like to know....who doesn't like bones? I know Shadow loves bones:

I certainly enjoy a good bone:

This weekend I learned of an astounding opportunity for all of us blogger pups. On Saturday a very unique auction was held. The I.M. Chait Gallery was trying to unload a 9 foot dinosaur skeleton. You heard me right! Are you thinking what I'm thinking? This could mean an endless supply of bones! Take a look at the big fella:

Unfortunately for them, the highest bid of $220,000 fell short of the required minimum bid they were hoping for. That means the 150 million year old bag of bones is still available! Are you thinking what I'm thinking?? Apparently they intended to ship the big guy in his constructed glory. I suspect if we saved them the trouble and told them they can just toss the bones in a box we might be able to strike up an attractive deal. Anyone interested? Incidentally, a 7 foot tall baby Woolly Mammoth also went on the auction block and sold for a mere $45,000. What a bargain! It was proudly purchased by a private collector who will be placing it in the lobby of his Los Angeles office. I wonder if it sheds.

Didn't your peeps try to add it to your khollekhtion?

As for Ari's book, well...rumour has it....
Oh never mind!

That would be a lot of bones. Our humans have these plastic thingies that buy all sorts of stuff, so we will use those. Surely that will work.

Hi, Echo!
Ari and her mom are famous! I hope they sell lots of books!
Those are tons of bones! I'd be happy with just one of them!
Kisses and hugs

I prefer some meat on my bones, and that dinosaur doesn't look like he has much meat!


Julie said...

Those dinosaur bones might be a little tough - and probably a little expensive.

Mango said...

I am thinking we should be able to get something together for those bones. Although they are pretty old. Are you sure they are still yummers?

Is that one of those Galileo bones you've got there? I had one in the Studio... and I think Ammy took it.

The OP Pack said...

Mom says she saw that story about the dinosaur - what??? and she didn't even try to buy it!!!!

We will be wishing Ari and his lady lots of luck with that new book - we will be getting the plastic out for this one for sure.

I'll kick in $20 towards the bones!

Kathryn and Ari said...

Aw, shucks. We're blushing over here. Thanks so much for the great post. Now, let's go see about getting our paws on some of those BONES!!

Your pals,

Sitka, Tia, & Cornelia Marie said...

WOOO! Thanks for reminding us about the book. We totally need to get it ordered! Wonder if Ari will pawtograph it?

Me and my puppies said...

We enjoy Kathryn and Ari and are looking forward to reading their book.
In celebration lets pass the out the bones!

Lady Kaos said...

We saw that article, too! Mom says the bones wouldn't taste very good ebcause they're so old. I like chewing on my old bones so I don't know what she is talking about. Silly woman!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Now that certainly would be a big bag of bones. How could any dog resist that.. Maybe you should steal your mom's plastic card and get it..
We will have to go check out Ari's book. It is exciting to know a celeb...

Dad has those pots that are just high enough so I can't leave any pee-mail. Of course I am good at watering the sides of the pots..

That's a lot of bones! But I don't think my humans would spend that much of their green papers on bones that don't have any meat or other goodies on them.

I told my humans about Ari's book. I'll make sure they get a copy so they can read it to me before I go to bed!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I dunno about dinosaur bones, but I just found out that in some countries of the world, you can actually buy a kangaroo femur as a dog treat. Huge long gristly thing, streaked with scraps of roo-jerky; it looks lovely. That's one to dream on.
