Velma suggested, "We make a pie for the boys and another pie for Klancy and Xitty."

"Both still get their treats!" said Becky.

"Ummmm, that's right. We better skip the spicy stuff! Thanks for thinking of that", says Becky.

“That’s great for the boys,” Velma comments, “but what about Klancy & Xitty?”
—Becky: “Xitty is such a sweetie, Klancy too. But they don’t like hot stuff!”

"Tabasco and hot peppers for the boys!" says Becky.

"Quick, get them out of the oven!" says Velma.
"They aren't quite done!" says Becky.

The demands were still coming in from the living room.

"Oh, it says right here, 'lungs'," says Becky.
"But we don't have any!" says Velma.
"Where's the pies?" asks Chuck sleepily.
"I guess we go without!" says Becky. "Get those pies in the oven!"

"Might as well give it a try!" said Becky. "After all, we're halfway there!"
"It's only the heart, liver and lungs and onion and oatmeal," said Becky, reading from a recipe book.

“Lord have mercy!” Velma exclaims suddenly, “This is beginning to sound a bit like Haggis!”
—Becky, confused: “Haggis?? What’s that?”
—Velma, trying to remember: “Well, it has the liver, lungs, heart, probably all of the organs of a sheep, oatmeal, & I don’t recall what else…all stuffed in the sheep’s stomach.”
—“Eeeuuuu!!” Becky interrupts … then with a smile: “Klancy & Xitty will love it!”

"Just don't forget to throw some anchovies in the pie for Xitty", says Velma. "Remember how she went crazy last time Eugene was picking them out of his antipasto salad and feeding them to her? Anchovies are like Xitty's version of catnip!", she continues.

"The boys or the animals?" asked Velma.
"All of them!" said Becky.

"Hearts and gizzards too?", asked Velma. They had killed several chickens that week and usually kept the guts to use as dog treats. "Yeah, throw those in the blender too!"

“For Heaven’s sake!” Velma mutters, “They don’t know what they’re asking for!”
—Becky giggles: “Let’s give it to them anyway! Can you imagine their expressions when they take a bite!!”
—Velma, smirking: “Do you think they want it with a dollop of whipped cream on top???!!!”

“Dear?” Yancy calls from the front room, sweet talking Velma, “Do you have any more pie?”
—Velma, calls back with a twinkle in her eye: “We’re deciding what pie to make next.”
—Chuck: “Save a big piece for me!”
—Becky, eyes large, covers her mouth with both hands to stifle a chuckle

She consulted her very large binder full of recipes.
"I have a recipe for liver pie for people and liver pie for pets!"

“But what would be their favorite pie?” Becky asks
—“W…e…l…l…” Velma ponders, “I wouldn’t want it, but I’m sure they’d love a liver pie.”
—“YUCK!!!” Becky starts to turn green, “Do you have a recipe for a liver pie?”

Xitty, who had been lurking around the kitchen all day, jumps up on the counter and starts eating some pie dough scraps. Becky is both shocked, and amazed. "Velma, come here and look at Xitty!"

—Becky, with a smile: “Chuck … I hid your favorite pie so no one can find it. The whole pie will be waiting for you.”
—Chuck, doubtful: “Where did you hide it?”
—Becky: “In the dryer.”

Quickly Chuck started herding cows. He knew he would never get Klancy or Eugene back while there were pies to be eaten.

"Here I am cleaning up and finishing something someone else started!" said Chuck.

"Yeah, right!" exclaimed Becky.

“PIES!!!” Eugene yells as he runs toward the house
—“Pies??!” Chuck asks Velma, “What kind of pies?”
—“Peach Cobbler, Blackberry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pecan Pie” Velma answers
—“Ruff!” Klancy likes pie too & quickly trotts to the house
—Chuck: “Klancy, get back here, right now! Bad dog!”
—Chuck, running after Klancy: “Klancy!!! No pie until the cows are all herded into the pen!! Klancy, do you hear me!!”
—Velma mutters to herself: “Lots of luck, Chuck! Klancy knows Eugene is a soft touch!”

"OK, Chuck," said Eugene. I have the gate open.
Klancy had rounded them up and was heading them for the gate.

Velma came around saying she had pies in the oven.

Eugene, hear pies took off at a run for the house.

Velma was now making pies for a gathering crowd in Chuck's living room.

Eugene was so preoccupied with the "Bob's your uncle" question, that he forgot to mend the fences as Chuck had requested. A couple of the cows had gotten out and Chuck was mad as a hatter. "Eugene, WHY didn't you fix that fence?", asks Chuck. "Let's go get those darn cows!"

Not that Yancy had nothing to do either. Velma always reminded him of his "honeydo" list all the time.

"I'm going for fishin' rods!" said Yancy.

Xitty sat on the porch and watched them all.
