Anyone catch the Anderson Cooper piece on science, the nation within, and confirmation of what some of us already knew?

    Good morning, everyone! Yawn, we knew that, why not just ask us :) Well, at least others are getting the message of the nation within.
    Have a multi-colored Monday!

    Good morning Everybody.

    60 Minutes should have interviewed TYB and Jay!

    Happy belated birthday, dear Zoe.

    Good morning all. Yes we saw it and thought it was good. We have seen Chaser before on t v. Amazing the vast word recognition, but I think many dogs could achieve that level if worked with as much as Chaser. BCs have an obsessive need to work, and this is how they have used that trait. The other young, long haired guy is a prof at Duke. Will have to ask brother Dave if he knows of him.

    Staff, I love the quilt room. Are the cabinets maple? The cabinets look so nicely organized. I like organization. Wish I could get my garage in better order.

    Did anyone tell Catty that FOC means Friends of Chet. Also, Catty, FOM is Friend of the Month.

    Bluecat: I thought exactly the same thing!

    B,M,&L: I left a post earlier this morning for A Catty, but thank you for the reinforcements. :)

    Staff: I said this earlier too, but I love your quilt room.

    Oooooops, time to get the laundry out of the dryer.

    Staff, your quilting room is wonderful. Mom is not jealous. Not one tiny bit. Not even a smidgen. Well, perhaps a tiny smidgen. Actually, she is green witness envy. Although she doesn’t look green to me.

    Good morning all. It’s 10:30, and we haven’t gotten a “report to the hospital immediately” call yet, so the day is off to a good start.

    Staff – we join Wolfie in being green with envy over your gorgeous room. It will be an inspiration to your sewing.

    Funny thing – we can post photos to the blog with our iPhone, but not from our laptop. Mike Baker – what hath thou wrought?

    Tupper’s Mama we have issues posting, and refreshing on the ipaw. Mom is so technochallenges, she hasn’t tried the ifone yet but since it on 8.0, we bet it’ll hiccup too.
    Staff, that has got to be the ugliest room mom has ever seen. Pointless. Dark. Drab. (No, she isn’t jealous. Who’s a jealous girl?)

    It’s a Known Fact…(All) Most of us in the Nation Within are happiest when we have a job to do.

    Staff: Many a Plunderer on this here Blog has turned Greenish With Envy over your Quilt Room. We know you will enjoy Many Happy Hours there.
    (and, no wonder you were tired, it was the middle of the night. of course, many of us are becoming night owl types here of late)

    Gasp! Spence might have to open up a whole New Photo Blog. Do youse realize how many photos must be on there? Will we ever have a FOTM again? Sob.

    Good day! Add Mom to the list of Plunderers who are green with envy over Staff’s quilting room. And she does not even quilt! She thinks it is beautiful, and bright, and everything has a place. She imagines many happy hours spent singing/humming/working in that room.

    Zeusiköv is letting all your compliments go to his head, which was already HUGE!

    HOH you made me laugh out loud. I am so sorry you hate my quilt room. heh heh heh

    I am working hard at getting more of my fabric put away. I told my local friends that we could have an open quilt room party this coming saturday so I have to get to work.

    Also the rest of the house has been ignored and looks like a pit. Yeep.

    BOOTY FUND UPDATE
    I am hoping to have someone offer to match a donation or two for the Booty fund. You don’t have to offer to match huge amounts. I will start out by offering to match the next 5$ donation that comes in. Get in line people! 5 dollar matches go FAST!

    Will anyone else offer to match any amount? I hope so! Rio is getting impatient because there is no update action….snicker

    Someone here watched all the 60 minutes segments and was quite impressed with the canine research (thanks, Chet, Spence & Admin).
    Of course, it was data we here on the blog were already aware of, but still comforting to know science is finally catching up with reality.
    B: Yes, the constant commercials can be irritating.
    HOH: If it is one our friend sent, it is a legacy we can treasure.
    Royals: For your mama’s sake, I do hope things are calming down.

    Border Collie! It is always a Border Collie, but that is okay. I will give them that.

    Us Sibers may be up there on the intelligent breed list. We may be smart enough to not let you humans know how intelligent we are.

    Staff, Mom believes Zeus goes through screens. Oh yes, she believes Zeus goes through screens.
    Mom also thinks Zeus is one handsome dude.

    I liked the link this morning. I know all the dogs know this information but the humans need to be taught.

    Staff: Your quilting and sewing room is wonderful!

    Checkpoint Central is in this for the long haul. We have nearly 5 months before Iditarod 2015 and have sponsored one-third of the checkpoints in the inital rush.

    OK, we have received a wonderful challenge match from a super wonderful plunderer.

    So there is another 30.00 available for matching funds in addition to my 5$ challenge. Match any amount you wish. 5 or 10 or 15 or whatever you little heart desires. Dogs want booties….

    Nome is on hold for now.

    Staff, We wrote out a check over the weekend for Rebecca, for our booty contribution. However, it did not get taken to the P.O. till this morning. Should be there by the end of the week.

    The dog breeds that do the best on those types of trials are dogs that work closely with humans for things like farm chores. I read an interesting story from a man who was visiting a sheep farmer in Scotland. The farmer told his collie “bring in the sheep”. The observer asked when she would be back with the sheep. The farmer replied “tonight”. I thought it was amazing that the dog could keep that command in her mind for an entire day. Must not have been any slim jims or cheetos in her path!

  30. Zeus
    2:55 pm on October 6th, 2014

    What does that mean: Nome is on hold?

    B,M,&L, We Howlers work closely with our two-leggeds on farm chores. Oh yes we do! When Mom says we are bringing horses in, we go let the horses know that they are to come in. When Mom says it is time to lock up the chickens, I go up to their yard to watch over Mom while she locks up. When it is time to ride those horses, we all accompany them, just in case. When we know that a critter is hiding out underground, we dig them up.

    BM&L, Our mom has had one BC mix. Mom was her third home. !st home, boyfriend would shoot at her (in NM), @nd home in Ca, man locked her behind an electric fence…she’s climb and break. Came to mom at 12 years old. Ran once but taught our husky/shepard to run. Once she came to TN, she never ran or escaped again. Seemed like she found an acre she was happy on till she crossed the bridge at 19. Loved her as did mom. They are special as are most members of the nation within.

    The KatsRule! – Iditarod checkpoint is now Open for Donations!

    Hat tip to all the Sibers for donations to multiple checkpoints!

    HOunds: That is a Very Nice Story of Your Border Collie Mix.
    Yes…We would say She Was Happy…having lived to be 19 Years Old! She lived and loved every minute in Her Furever Home.

    Zeus: Everyone knows how Helpful You (Howlers) Are :)

    BarbMagpieLucy: Like Siber-H said, it’s Always the Border Collie who wins the prize.
    We firmly believe that Every Breed, Every Dog has its own special job to do and will not be happy until it is a Working Dog.

    Checkpoint Announcement
    A reminder to all those who donate to checkpoints to use the snowhookcheckpoints@gmail.com to announce your donation. If there are more than one request for a checkpoint, the earliest time stamp on the email to the above address will be the one who gets the checkpoint.

    Also, it is easier for us to keep track of donations if they are all in one mailbox.

    Thank you to all Chet the Dog Plunderers, lurkers and Snowhook supporters!

    If I remember correctly, the collie that we talked about that went on a day trip and brought the sheep home from their mountain grazing ground was a regular collie – a rough coat collie, like Lassie, and not a BC.

    Spent some time outside this afternoon, enjoying one of the last lovely fall days before cold weather comes. Cleaned out part of the garden and put down some mulch where we planted the hyacinths.

    Rio & BooBear: So far Forever is a Good Show. Nothing Deep…Just Enjoyable. Also, nice to see Judd Hirsch again. Ioan Gruffudd Looks Familiar but don’t have a clue where we’ve seen him before.

    You’re right BSD. That made us tear up over here.

    Also, we don’t usually tear up over human stories, but just saw one that had that affect on us. Google the CBS news end story, maybe from yesterday, about a terminally ill woman named Trisha Somers and her special request to her Angel.

    Well, I shook the money tree and sent the necessary SDDs to the appropriate people (and the money to Snowhook).

    Today a crawlspace fan was to be installed as a prerequisite to sealing the crawlspace which is being done on Wednesday. I had only found one company who could do it before the deadline (at 2x the price). Today at noon I get a call that someone in the office didn’t order the fan so it can’t be installed. It takes a week to get the fan so it is a lost cause at the moment.

    A person needs to be strong to handle all the plot twists of life.

    Rio, These 2-leggeds have never had a bad reaction, and we don’t think a bad reaction would take this long to appear. But better safe than sorry. We hope your friend visits her v-e-t.

    My Mama Meash has a puncture on her face, and now her eye is a little swollen. I didn’t see what happened, but Zeus also had blood on his ear, so I am thinking those two had a squabble. Now my Mama Meash is outside in the field somewhere and won’t come in. sigh
    Meantime, my other momma rode Annie tonight, under the full “harvest” moon. It was a very spooky night, with wind blowing the corn and the leaves. Momma kept singing something about ghosts and goblins and witches and stuff! I was scarit. Annie is never scarit. She is the quintessential Arabian mare. Did you know that the Bedouins prized the mares the most and only rode them into battle? The reason was that they are so brave and quiet? The mares also slept in the tents with the family. Mom and I will never understand those folks who think mares are trouble and would rather have a gelding. No way.

    O’Howler’s Mom: And, with all this…you say you are Still getting your shot? Not me, Amigos, not me.

    Howlers, Barb’s Arabian stallion that she had back in the lat 70s and early 80s was wonderful. Booma was calm and gentle and could be ridden on a trail ride. He was old Egyptian, grey speckled or ticked. I think he was Fadyl breeding. I bet he could have lived in a tent.

    After the last two games, we opted not to watch today’s game, but are real happy with the final outcome. For that reason may not watch tomorrow either. Go Nationals!!!

    Maggie, that is so cool! Arabians get such a bar wrap, and it is only because of Arabian trainers, who try to get them spooky so they look all firey in the show ring. Btw, Annie (“Psy Ann”) is half Egyptian and half Crabbett bred.

    Ummm…that would be bad wrap.

    Rio, It was on the MLB Channel. I posted this info for you early on the blog today, but I think you had a busy day.

    Kat: Loved your video. Nice rendition. I’ll bet Annie appreciates that your mom can croon a kool tune too.
    TeddyRR: Is your dad out of couch cushions?

    Congratulations to the Nationals. I could not find the game on my tv either. I saw the last inning on mlb.com.

    I am suddenly feeling feverish and have a sore throat. Don’t tell me I caught something from the nurses at the card game. Wash your hands! I’m going to bed early. Tomorrow’s bus leaves at 8 am sharp!

    Teddy!…Shame on youse! You and your Paw! For Shame!…sniff!…Here some of us are frantically trying to watch the dawg-damned game and you blow it off…wuffle!…This is not how a fan in October should be acting….wheeze!…October is Special! Tomorrow I will be prepared – if SiberH tells me the time and the channel…heh!heh!

    Kat, you are right. One time Barb went to an Arabian horse sale held by a big Arabian breeder. She went in back and saw someone rubbing a metal rod across the stall bars. The noise had the young horse inside getting spooked. Then they brought the horse out on lead and of course it was prancing and acting all crazy. That appealed to the buyers. That is wrong!

    Rio, Are you sure you don’t get the MLB channel? It is a less obscure channel than FS1 and not one we pay extra for.

    Howlers, The trainer that had the sale was Bobby Battaglia, who was big in the Arab horse world. Do you know him? If I remember correctly, Booma was Babson breeding and was probably a Fadl grandson, being born in the mid 60s. Too bad my ex wasn’t as nice as the horse – would have loved to have kept them.

    Rio. It’s not that we didn’t care, we were just worried that we were jinxing the team by watching. We really, really did want tj to win.

  92. Teddy Ruff Rider
    9:51 pm on October 6th, 2014

    That should be that we wanted them to win. Darn otter whatever.

    SiberH!…Is it the MLBN network?…grunt!…If it is it is not included in someone here’s subscribtion…gasp!

  94. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:53 pm on October 6th, 2014

    Teddy!…I believe you pal – tomorrow will be another winning day. Just like today…chuffle!…Although, so far my day has been down the toilet…wheeze!

    Rio, I imagine it is the MLBN, but my on-screen guide and the newspaper calls it the MLB channel.

    Rio: Wow, did your day involve found money? Yeep!
    Every year Alaskans (men, women, babies) get $$$ from its oil called the Permanent Fund. It various annually in amounts from a low of $331 in 1984 to a high of $2,06 in 2008. This year is on the higher end. Everyone goes out and spends the money which is a great economic stimulus. I’ve always used it to pay bills (a fuel delivery, college tuition, a new set of winter tires, etc.) This year it paid a monthly morgage payment. Whoo Hoo! If only there was a way to register Sadie as a dependent it would mean dog/treatie food for the year.

    10:29 pm on October 6th, 2014

    CHobbit!…We here are ready to become Alaskan citizens…yeeep!….We are packed and ready to move into your basement apartment – of course Mother would have to come with us. And Beau. But if Beau is the deal breaker, I could figure something out…heh!heh!

    Siber & Riö: Sob…we don’t get the MLBN channel either…found the Fox Sports 1, but that’s not much help now.
    Dawson said she watched on mlb.com.
    Speaking of which…Dawson…don’t get sick!

  101. c.hobbit
    10:42 pm on October 6th, 2014

    Rio: smooch! I don’t think it is Beau who is the dealbreaker.

  102. Rio - The Evil Pug
    10:44 pm on October 6th, 2014

    Grump!…If push comes to shove then I may have to listen to the game on mlb.com…sniff!…One of my friends co-workers lets us use his logon. Which reminds me, Beau needs to fork over some cash so we can send that co-worker a gift certificate…heh!heh!…Beau where are you?

  103. Rio - The Evil Pug
    10:45 pm on October 6th, 2014

    CHobbit!…What? Are you saying I’m the deal breaker?…gasp!…I promise not to sit beside you and let little poo’s …sniff!

    No Rio. Who in your house is in control and won’t let your friend cook/live in peace?

  105. Rio - The Evil Pug
    11:16 pm on October 6th, 2014

    Ummm….But CHobbit, you would be missing out on someone who would clean your house top to bottom every day, and do yard-work and all the ..gah!..cooking…gah!…snort!…I’m just saying.

  106. Rio - The Evil Pug
    11:19 pm on October 6th, 2014

    Oh!…And she would go through all your drawers and papers and receipts the minute you leave the house….guffle!…But this is a good thing, right? Cause she would also feed ME and Sadie and even Beau as much as we could ever ask for each day…heh!heh!…Oh no! WE cannot leave Mother behind…No!No!No!…burp!

  107. Rio - The Evil Pug
    11:32 pm on October 6th, 2014

    CHobbit!…Ponder this over-night…sniff!…As I said, I am already packed and ready to become an Alaskan Citizen-Kane…heh!heh!…It will be Great!…snort!

    CHobbiti: Is this Alaskan bonanza per person or household?

    Rio: does she shovel snow? That is a 6-month job.

    Also, my apologies as it is bad form to criticize someone else’s mother. Once you get the $$ signs out of your eyes you will also realize that your friend does not like winter. Remember her response when I invited her to come back for Iditarod? And that was after a wonderful visit to Snowhook Kennel. If she thought it was neat riding a 4-wheeler with dogs running, imagine what it would be with snow and a sled. However, I have not given up to having you both back next March.

    Masquers: the $$$ is per person. When I lived up north, for 20 years I was in a rural area where there were big households i.e. 5-7 children per family. So it was quite a windfall. If families were smart, the children would have quite a nest egg at 18 years old. Unfortunately, the money isn’t set aside for the children to claim at age 18. I haven’t done a total of all the years since 1982 but at one point $30,000 had been paid out per person since the inception in 1982.

    Oh I am such a bad booty booster. We now have 185 booty dollars available for matching funds. Somewhere along the line of those matching funds there will be prizes. Depending on how or when it will either be the happy donor or the delightful matcher. We are now open for bootie bucks

    Bye bye for now.

    Sleep, o fickle friend, where hast thou gone?
    I repose, yet my brain resteth not.
    And I fear the coming of the light of day.
