Affenpinscher (More)

“So affenpinscher means monkey pinscher?” Admin says.

“That kind of thing,” says Spence.

“And what about the pinscher part?”

“German for terrier. Might actually be a back formation from the English word pinch, referring to the clipped look of the ears. Maybe some of the commenters know more.”

“No doubt about that.”

Welcome Ike.

    Good morning to all!
    Welcome Puka and Ike!
    We are still wrassling with the right song to send in. We have loved everybody’s selections so far.

    Good morning all.

    Up Where We Belong – Joe Cocker

    With Howlers, we loved everyone’s choices and can’t wait to find out the rest.

    Happy Heart Day – may it be filled with Chocolate and Love, head bumps and tummies!

    For all the little doggies, it’s got to be “Born to Run” by the incomparable Bruce Springsteen. Great video too.

    Good Morning and Happy Valentine’s Day! Much love, head bumps, scritches, and tummies to all. Some flowers and chocolate too.

    It is very hard to for me to make a decision, so I didn’t. I sent three song titles to Rebecca and told her she and AJ should decide. :)

    Here’s my two cents worth – Rose Tattoo, by the Dropkick Murphys:

    Terry, that is a great idea for Rose!!!!

  7. OleyHowlers
    9:17 am on February 14th, 2013

    The more we think the more ideas we are coming up with for ours. So hard to decide. We are all over the board here.

    9:27 am on February 14th, 2013

    It’s “pinscher” as in Doberman and it is from the cropping of ears and tail.

    Good morning all.

  10. OleyHowlers

    Woo Woo! Rob Cookes’ Sibes crossed the Finish Line in Fairbanks 44 minutes ago!

  13. B. Stover
    9:46 am on February 14th, 2013

    My music choice is Bach’s Brandenberg Concerto Number 2. That will add variety to AJ’s listening pleasure. I also have to add the Beatles’ “Imagine.”

    Wonderful about the quilts Wookie’s Mom.

  14. Princess Sam
    10:06 am on February 14th, 2013

    I like Wind Beneath my Wings by Bette Midler.

  15. OleyHowlers
    10:13 am on February 14th, 2013

    Sammy, Glad you will be selecting Wind Beneath my Wings…we thought of that one too because it seems to make sense for AJ and the team.

    Good morning all. We love the idea of the playlist, and youse guys coming up with some great tunes. Our Daddy really likes this one – what do you all think:

    Attention Fellow Sibers!!

    You have to click on the link to the video that Staff left me last night. Trust me on this.
    Thank you very much Staff.
    Thanks for the photo, Howlers.

    Wookie’s Dad…Very good song choice. We love that song.

    Spence should send a song to Rebecca.

  21. OleyHowlers
    11:10 am on February 14th, 2013

    T&G, we here love that song! It has such great meaning, but also a great beat for moving on down that trail! We huskies would run to it.

  22. Siber-H
    11:14 am on February 14th, 2013

    T&G Another vote for that song. We like the video, also.

  23. OleyHowlers
    11:14 am on February 14th, 2013

    Siber, we did click that link from Staff early this morning and we love all those great pictures.

    We are struggling with a choice of song.

  25. B. Stover
    11:19 am on February 14th, 2013

    Forgot: “Pinch” (verb) is derived from Latin pinctiare, to prick.

  26. Tupper and Gilly
    11:25 am on February 14th, 2013

    Bee – you are indeed a treasure to this blog.

    Howlers and Siber – thanks for the input. That’s why our Dad likes that song. Its his “go to” music when he needs to get going.

    Dang, its hard to type with this freakin’ big white, now decorated thing.

  27. Siber-H
    11:31 am on February 14th, 2013

    I have to say this:

    Congratulations to Rob Cooke and his team of Siberians! We are very proud of you.

    Yukon Quest news: The dog, General, that sadly died on the trail had what is commonly known as bloat.
    Lance Mackey scratched because his dogs were sick. The dogs weren’t eating and drinking. This can happen to any long distance dog musher and team.

  28. B. Stover
    11:47 am on February 14th, 2013

    Congratulations Rob Cooke. I really like that picture that Howlers posted.

  29. OleyHowlers
    12:08 pm on February 14th, 2013

    We will echo Siber’s words. We may not be fast like the Alaskan Huskies and our Snowhook Team. But we have no Quit. Those Sibes went up the big mountain twice! (Cooke was confused from sleep deprivation). And yet the tails stayed high and they never stopped howling/yarking/talking/singing. We too are very proud of our kind on this Quest. We also loved that Rob Cooke said that Hector is his Best Friend.

    We hate bloat. Same as our MollyPop. sniff.
    Hope LM’s dogs are in good shape now.

    In honor of Valentines Day, for all of my valentines:

  31. Pancho & Lefty
    12:25 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Today is our fifth birthday along with the rest of the Outlaws. It’s also Quig, Twig an Elim’s birthday. They’re a year older.

  32. OleyHowlers Mom
    12:45 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Happy Birthday to the Outlaws and the Leaders!

  33. Siber-H
    12:45 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Pancho and Lefty, Happy Birthday to ALL of you! This calls for a really big celebration.
    Mom and I always think of the two of you whenever we hear the Pancho and Lefty song on the radio.

    Happy Valentine’s Day to all you lovely ladies…canine, feline, and two-legged here on the blog.

  34. Barb & Maggie
    12:47 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Hello all. Jaye has been here and left Barb worn out. Jaye is from Sri Lanka and is a tough little task master.

    Siber, all terriers were bred to dig little critters out of the ground. Terrier is from the Latin “terra” meaning earth. So they are all earth dogs, and all have a really high prey drive. If you are a control freak a terrier is not a good choice, as they have a mind of their own.

  35. Barb & Maggie
    12:48 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Happy Valentie’s Day and Happy Birthday!

  36. Luna
    12:56 pm on February 14th, 2013

    B&M: We may have had a conversation with Jaye to make sure you get the full benefit of your new, go-go-gaget knee. This of course means hard work on your part, but you’ll thanks us later.

    Happy Valentien’s Day to all youse! It is also Coach and Bev’s anniversary!

    Thanks for all the songs. My mama’s work gave her a gift card for Christmas that she can use to buy the songs. We’ve decided if there is extra than we will add any second or third suggestions in the order they were given until the gift card is empty! Woohoo!

  37. Rose
    1:08 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Belle Starr, 12 more days before I come to see you, you, YOU!
    I am very ecited and trying not to splort.

  38. OleyHowlers
    1:11 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Happy Anniversary to Coach and Bev. Luna, tell your mama that we will send in our song just as soon as we know what we want.

    And Barb? Terriors sound a lot like Sibes to us.

  39. Rose
    1:12 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Happy anniversary to Coach and Bev!
    And to all the Snowhook doggies celebrating birthdays, happiest of birthdays to all of you!

  41. Rose
    1:13 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Belle Starr, do you think the rest of the pack will like me?

  42. Luna
    1:15 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Wose: I think you’re familiar with Belle Starr’s math skills. She calculates that you will be here two days. How does she figure? 12 has both a 1 and a 2. 1 x 2 = 2.

  43. Belle Starr
    1:22 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Wose: How could they not love you? We here at the kennel have so much to show you when you get here. Pancho and Lefty want to show off their pick pocketing skills, Junior would like you to join him on a search for something he calls eyebrows, Doc wants to show you his favorite pooping spot, Bonnie wants to introduce you to the pups, Morgan wants to show you how to properly eat chicken skins—if you don’t understand the first time, she is happy to demonstrate the technique as many times as it takes—and the list goes on.

  44. B. Stover
    1:32 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Happy birthday Outlaws, Quig, Twig and Elim.

    Barb: That’s interesting about the derivation of “terrier.”

  45. Rose
    2:24 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Luna, I am starting to see the logic Belle Starr’s math skills.
    1×2 does equal 2…. :)

    Belle Starr, I can’t wait! I like chicken skins too, and I do need a lesson on how to properly eat them. I will definitely help Junior find his eyebrows. I’m so excited to meet the pack!!!

    I am very tiny. Will the Giant scare me?

  49. Masquers
    2:50 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Youse are coming up with purrfect songs for the trail!
    Bella: Please check your SDD.
    Rose: Are you excited or what? I can see you jumping up and down from here. Heh.

  50. Barb & Maggie
    2:52 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Here is another interesting terrier trivia. Most have been bred to have fat tails. The base of the tail is very big around, so that if the dog got stuck underground, it could be pulled out by the tail without hurting the dog. Years ago, before Barb discovered English Shepherds, she lived with a Welsh Terrier, 2 Airedales, and her mom had a Westie. The Welsh and the Westie were yappy, but sweet.

  51. Rose
    2:58 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Masquers, I could splort I am so excited!! The Prof is getting excited too. I am so excited to be meeting Rebecca and AJ! This for me is like going to the Academy Awards.

    Twelve!…Wow! Only 12 days before Rose and The Prof are North To Alaska!…snort!snort!… The Big Race is getting very close indeed…wheeze!

    Donations!… How are we doing on sponsoring ole blue eyes anyways?…grunt!

  53. OleyHowlers
    3:11 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Jemmy ‘Ole Blue Eyes Durante is 46% funded! We need $270 more. Come on youse all … we can do it. Imagine….we will have sponsored 7 Snowhook Teammembers!!!!

    Also: Dima and W-L have been putting their heads together and comparing notes, and by darn if we don’t think they have come up with the Howlers song contribution … we will let you know soon.

    3:14 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Happy Birthday, Anniversary, Yarking and Digging!

    I went to the acupuncturist this morning. He said, “Melanie, you are exhausted!” Then he put in a great deal of needles. I was told to rest. Which I’m doing now after running the errands, bringing in the dog food and the groceries, putting them away and then clearing the back deck. Snort!

    I want a vacation! Can’t go now, but still hoping for October.

    For a Valentine’s message I told my guys and gals how Valentine’s Day came about. I haven’t heard a thing back from them. Snicker

    Happy Anniversary to Bev and Couch.
    Happy Valentine’s Day to the Plunderers & Lurkers, Chet & Bernie, Spence & Admin.

    O’Howlers: Have you decided which Howling song it is to be?

  57. BearSpiritDog
    3:22 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Should have refreshed…..Going to listen to your song, O’Howlers.

  58. Tupper and Gilly
    3:35 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Siber – “we don’t yap” ??? Really. What about yark? You big silly.
    Gilly and do yap, but no one could pull us out from underground by our tails.

    Sometimes Gramp has to pull Callie out of a snowbank by her tail. Does that make her a terrier?

  59. Rose
    3:43 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Rio! I am bringing the picture of you with your baseball toy to Alaska so that Junior can be introduced to you. Photos will be taken.

    3:56 pm on February 14th, 2013

    ******* ATTENTION *******
    Beginning now, if we can get 10 more donations of $15 (or more) each, we will contribute the remainder of Jem’s sponsorship. Lets get the blue eyed wonder to the Start. Time is running out.

    The Proclaimers’ “500 Miles”.

    Here is a video of Tennent, a Dr. Who, lip syncing the song at the wrap up of his part of the show. The Proclaimers are there at the end.

    6:36 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Hey, Lefty! Get over her quick like a little pug! They’re playing our song.

    Wose: Lefty and I are wondering if you can settle a long standing dispute for us when you visit. Which one of us is better looking? Him or me? It’s me isn’t it?

  74. OleyHowlers
    6:38 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Staff, you gave your fair share for Jem, as did G&BB, Bluecat, Bear, Masquers, Rio,Beau, Wolfie, and C. Hobbit. We have tried to mention all the donors for each sponsored dog. Hope we didn’t forget to do that for any other of the dogs. And we hope we didn’t say anyone’s name who again didn’t want it said.

    Thanks to all Plunderers. Each and everyone contributed to one or (many) more Snowhook dogs. We are astounded that we managed to sponsor 7 dogs, in addition to all the checkpoints, and booties, and food. Wow! What a bunch. Sniff

    Life in a small town.

    Two days ago a family lost their entire cabin and belongings in fire. The family has lived in our town for years. Because of the Emmanuel support from the entire town, three accounts have been set up for this family. One for money to get through tis time. One at the local lumber store, and the last for gently used books for their six month old daughter.

    Awesome.

    It goes to prove that we, The Plunderers, have become a village.

    6:51 pm on February 14th, 2013

    I love all your choices for music.
    I choose “Why don’t we do it in the Road” by the Beatles. Except I couldn’t get it to copy to Rebecca’s email.
    Then I tried “Hallelujah” by k.d. lang (sung at the 2010 Olympics). That seemed to work. Hallelujah is what I will be saying just after AJ and the team take off and just after they cross under that burled arch.

  79. Siber-H
    6:51 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Mollypop’s Mom, Thanks for the Pancho and Lefty song. We never get tired of hearing it.
    Thanks too Staff, for the Rob Cooke interview. That is a good video of him and the dogs.

    The Rose tatoo…it is beautiful.

  80. Mollypop's Mom
    7:09 pm on February 14th, 2013

    My choice for a song is Run For the Roses by Dan Fogelberg. I know it’s about a baby horse, but the more I played it, the more I saw baby sled dogs.

  85. Melanie
    7:38 pm on February 14th, 2013

    “Emmanuel”? “EMMANUEL”? Carpola autocorrect . . try “overwhelming”.
    Jeeze Louise.

    Rose, as OTAS puts it, he designs what the person wants. He needs not know the meaning behind it all.

    YSAS is getting an iPaw! Nothing like getting your taxes back. Mini, of course.

    AJ is never going to know what type of song is going to come up next. Until the 100th time through.

  86. Melanie
    7:42 pm on February 14th, 2013

    Hmmm, vicariously sharing YSAS and SO’s night on the town.

    Valentine WEEK.
    He got her a new dress.
    She made reservations and paid for dinner. (gluten free)
    He gave her a rose, a bottle of Champagne to share and Lyndst (?) tart.

    I don’t want to know any more. Enough to know that both of them are Romantics!

    Should the Plunderers sponsor a Rose tattoo for the Prof? We have connections with a world famous (to us anyway) tattoo artist. Bet we could get him to do it.

    tee hee

    Melanie – Linzer tart = large, thin, crisp, buttery vanilla cookie, spread with thin coat of dense raspberry jam, topped by a second cookie that has a small hole cut out so the raspberry jam peeks thru. Then the top is covered in confectioners’ sugar. In a word – delish!

    Prof, a small rose on your upper chest or upper arm would be great!

    Show!…We are stuck with that strange Person Of Interest, although I do understand it more because of the info Maskers sent me….sniff!…Maybe she will pop in the new All Creatures Great and Small that arrived today if things get too weird….chuffle!

    I second Rio’s burp. I just ate a very stale, 2 day old sandwich for dinner at the airport. My work session was cancelled today which is fine. The bad part is I was informed about the change of plans after I awoke at the crack of dark and caught my flight. I hoped to get on an earlier flight to I could see AJ, but no dice. Burp!

    Sigh…How we long for those bygone days when our Big Satellite was hooked up to a receiver that brought in the East Coast channels. Ten o’clock shows at seven pm…what could be better?

    So grabbing a late night snack then waiting, waiting, waiting for Elementary – Bear

    Melanie has inspired me to make some linzer cookies. The dough is chilling.

    One interesting tidbit I read in the Yukon Challenge book by John Firth was that a musher frostbit his tongue by eating frozen m&m’s on the trail. He was probably shoveling them in by the mittful, ouch!

    The Westminster Show is finally on in Canada.

    Two more hours before my flight leaves and the airport is a ghost town.

    Before I forget, I want to say thanks for sponsoring another Snowhook dog. I can’t wait to tell him.

    Rio: Even though my work session was cancelled today, I stayed plenty busy with other work. This is the first few moments I’ve had to just sit all day and it is fabulous. Snort.

    Night all. Time for a pain killer and then off to bed.
    Tomorrow Barb is going to the doc to get staples removed.

    Yeep!…In out!…Out In…gasp!…Makes me gurgle!

    SiberH!…You said Staff posted a video of your guys, I think, than you really enjoyed. Can someone re-post that link?…snort!…I’ve looked but I cannot find it for some reason…gruffle!

    Barb has a reason for having staples in her knee, but I have a theory: If you end the day with office supplies embedded in your skin, things did not go your way.

    Rio, You know I can’t repost the link, but you can find it in last night’s posts on the blog. Staff says it is for “Mr. Husky”. That is me. It is really a neat video. I think a guy in the UK put it up on youtube.

    Night All

    Rio: Rowdy who was my best friend and mentor to Quigley and Wyatt started a long held theory in the kennel. If you end the day with poop on your head, things did not go your way. Both Quigley and Wyatt learned this lesson.

    SiberH!…I was hoping someone besides you would take pity on me and re-post the link..grunt!

    Rebecca!… Sometimes Beau ends up with Kat-poop on his breath…sniff!…He thinks things have gone his way, but later he finds out differently…heh!heh!

    Zoe Here. I am beginning to remember things that happened during my drugged stay in the hospital. There was this sort of wondrous procession one evening with what seemed to be entire florist companies walking into my room with lovely Christmas plants including a lighted tree. When I woke up the next morning they were still there.
    The plants were just beautiful and I had to rotate them with the lady next door there were so many. So many people including visitors and admirers of Christmas plants had their spirits lifted. Thanks to the the magical blog.

    Now if you have any ideas on how to gain weight! Thank you and much love, Zoe
