    Wow. Inquiring minds definitely want to know. Tell us more, OFA. Or do we have to read it in the National Inquirer first?

    Good morning everyone.

    “Lovely plans” makes me nervous….I think. What’s up?

    Good morning all.

    Good morning Wookie’s Dad, and HRH Empress Queen B.

    I wonder where in NY OFA is. I could have taken a mental health day from work. Maybe YSAS can find him….

  4. Herd of Hounds
    11:16 am on June 26th, 2013

    If YSAS has no luck, perhaps Terry. Isn’t he on Long Island? Doesn’t he go to things like this Atris meeting? Oh, and
    Gooood morning, everyone! (While it’s still morning) Have a wind-blown Wednesday.
    We have commandeered Daddy Dawg’s computerwhile he’off gallyvanting around Michigan. Wowser! Easier to use, bigger keys for our paws, bigger screen so 4 of us can see better.

  5. Barb & Maggie
    11:21 am on June 26th, 2013

    Now the no post makes sense. We will excuse OFA for now, expecially since he has a b-day coming up Friday. Have fun in the Big Apple.

    This morning the rain and thunder boomers woke us up about 4:30.
    We got close to 5 inches of rain in 4 hours! Barb went to the basement to check the sump pump. Never could go back to sleep, so we see a nap in our future.

    HOH – we think you deserve a brand new ‘puter all your own in return for taking care of your Mom and the homestead while Daddy Dawg was off gallivanting. (Is that anything like gamboling?)

    We sure hope the tour includes the WESTERN part of the state where OFA lives. hint hint….

    Goooooood Morning! It really is!!!!!
    Mom had to go to a yucky meeting last night and insisted she had to take our iPaw, so we were not able to read or post at all.
    T&G, Thanks you for explaining “override”. We here do not have such a thing, but we do have lots and lots of fighting over property taxes. Every candidate who runs for state legislature promises to eliminate them, and of course when they get there, there is nothing one single person can do. And the stupid Rs and Ds cannot find it in their hearts to reach a compromise of what to replace that revenue with.
    Maggie, we here are all rescues. Mom said that none of us got shuffled around from foster home to shelter to foster home like poor Joe was. We mostly just came from shelters, and so we knew a good home when we got here. She said that Dima followed her everywhere in the beginning, but after he got used to things, he started being a normal husky, which means he does his own thing. Sasha had been confiscated from a hoarder, so she had food issues when she came, but she bonded with Misha completely after 2 days. Meashka was a “private rescue”, meaning she never had a bad home, just not one where she could run around like this here farm. And Kat was such a little baby, she really didn’t know any better. She was a scaredy Kat for a long time in that she wouldn’t go outside alone, but we think that was just her age, and not her rescue experience. So, sorry for being of no help. We think maybe Joey needs to be babied a bit for awhile. That is what we would do. Then he will gradually realize that this home is furever and he will adjust.
    Bella, we don’t really understand your job, and we are wondering what it is you need to do in Barrow? brrrrr

    We here are extremely worried about Masquers mom.

  8. Rose
    11:35 am on June 26th, 2013

    Bear Spirit Dog up top. I am very worried about Masquers mom. Is there anyway we can check on her? Does she have someone on the blog who can check?

  9. B. Stover
    11:44 am on June 26th, 2013

    BearSpiritDog and Masquers have not been on Facebook either. I just sent an email to them. If I don’t hear back, I’ll send an email to a friend of theirs.

  10. O'Howlers
    11:56 am on June 26th, 2013

    Thank you Bee.

    12:29 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Just heard from Bear/Masquers. They just moved and the reception is poor. They will try to check in later “when internet is up and running.”

    “Exciting news re the tour, A Cat Was Involved, and other things to come.”

    I want to know NOW!

    It is 75 here today and the humidity is making it feel like 85. Carpola. Dotted storms on the radar. Last night’s storms never made it here. Went North and South of us. Tupper and Gilly got the southern storm. They emailed said it was The Newf Pack’s fault. T&G seem to think that The Pack’s wagging tails sent it their way and Corgis don’t have enough tail wagging power to send the storms away.

    snicker . .

    Hi Masquers and BSD whenever you return . .

    I harvested 5 strawberries! I cut them up, but a little bit on powered sugar on them. Zoƫ and I will have a small slice of gluten free pound cake, strawberries and whipped cream for tea.

  13. Siber-H
    12:56 pm on June 26th, 2013

    I am glad Spence told us what he is doing or we would have started worrying about him. Have fun, Spence!

    Stover, Thanks for the news about Masquers and his family.

    Mom is jealous of Rebecca getting to go to Barrow because mom wants to see the Arctic Ocean. I want to go to the Arctic but I do not give a diddly about seeing any ocean.

  14. Melanie
    1:12 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Rose, you do NOT want YSAS to look for OFA at this point. Maybe Terry.

    I don’t think a place like Atria would let him in. He looks as if he was in a fight and lost. He is still swollen. He has bruising up and down both sides of his jaw where the surgeon and staff had to hold his jaw when the crack it.

    I think Terry is a better bet.

    Weather at Barrow, AK below . .

  15. dawson
    1:39 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Spence: I like the sound of “lovely plans”.
    SiberH: I’ll go to Barrow with you. One thing I would love to do in my lifetime is dip my toes into the Arctic Ocean. You could stay on land and watch.
    Cassie the BSD up top!
    Puss & Boots: Good job on your purchases at the Boutique. I tried once for the quilt but my credit card was at its crummy low limit.

  16. Herd of Hounds
    2:03 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Mucho good things on the blog. Are we having a b-day par-tay for OFA?
    Do NOT like the Barrow weather report šŸ™
    OH: Dog stories (rescue). 1) Sonja, wolf dog @ 5 weeks rejected. 2) Kahlua, to be put down because “too small”. 3) Lacey, ran away repeated, then she just stayed w/ mom (12/31/99). 4)Aretha, sold/papered, “retuened to breeder” @ 6 mo. 5)Jenna, husky mix, toooo big. 6)Ella Fitzgerald, left by son. 7)Emma P, at flea market (with papers?). 8) Pookey, needed home as “mom” couldn’t keep. 9) Lucy Lou, man had Boston Terrier but had no idea of energy of labradoodle ( especially huntress extradinaire). Soooo, only Darah Thea in mom’s life isn’t a rescue baby! (Like Adoption)

    Just spoke w/ oldest grandson (almost 13) he wanted to visit. Fam said “abuelita” was ill. Mom was really honest, used “C” word. He understands. Mom will try for a visit just before school starts. We like him, good pillow.

  18. Rose
    2:56 pm on June 26th, 2013

    B, thank you for checking up on BSD, Masquers and their mom.
    Siber-H, after this heat wave, I am ready for some Artic chill!!!

    Melanie: Poor YSAS! Hope he is feling a little better.

  19. Siber-H
    2:57 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Okay Dawson, you and mom can go stick your toes in the Arctic Ocean while I have a few beers with the dogs in Barrow.

    I just had an idea, on one of Rebecca’s trips to Barrow, if she can actually get to the Arctic Ocean, she should take a couple of jars (or whatever) to collect a bit of the Arctic Ocean. These little containers of ocean water can then be put up for auction in one of the auctions that benefit Snowhook.

    I bet I already know two of the plunderers that would bid on them. I’m not naming names, but I live with one of them.

  20. Siber-H
    2:59 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Wose, You would be more than welcome to join me, Dawson, and mom in our quest to see the Arctic Ocean.

    I could deal with the Barrow temps right about now. Sadie is panting already and it is a good 12 hours to go as the temps get higher. Tomorrow is to be hotter. I guess if worse comes to worse, we can sit in the car with the AC running. Can’t take a drive because of her anxiety issues that were discovered on the trips to/from Anchorage.

    I look forward to OFA’s exciting news. It sounds like it will be a great week for him ending in his birthday.

    I was just going to ask about YSAS’s teeth so I am glad Melanie updated us. Hope BSD/Masquers will be back soon.

    Oh wise ones: can anyone recommend a good vacuum and why you would recommend it? I am in the market for a new one. I have used uprights and found them to be heavy and canister ones and found them to be awkward. I have both flat surfaces and carpets. If you don’t want to post your recommendations on the blog, please email me.

    Snort!… Check out the facebookie thingy on the righty…snort!…Pretty funny – those guys are working Real Hard…chorkel!

  24. Tupper and Gilly
    3:53 pm on June 26th, 2013

    CHobbit – Mama lives for the day when she can afford a dyson vac. Other than that they are pretty much all the same. Vacuums suck.

    Mama is in kind of a good mood. At long last, she has had the abiity to move her hand and be able to play in the Mud Room. She took her first works up to her mentor Andy to be fired, and he just praised and complimented her till she blushed. Ok, so she knows that he is a teacher, and therefore praises his students to inspire them, but she is in such awe of his talent that compliments from him just make her day.

    AND we are proud to say that (finally) the purchases from the boutique are all packed and in the hands of the postal goats. Hopefully some will be in their new homes by the end of the week.

    Bee – thanks for getting in touch with BSD and Masquers. Whew.

  25. FinnDogsMom
    3:59 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Hello everyone! Finn says thank you for all the compliments yesterday. We both really appreciate them. Some devote GSD owners look down on the White coat as being inferior to all other colors, so we appreciate any and all love. For who asked yesterday…I am in So.MD

  26. Siber-H
    4:10 pm on June 26th, 2013

    C.Hobbit, We know someone that has two Huskies and they have a Dyson and are very happy with it, but it is expensive.

    Finn is a very handsome dude. We love the white color.

  27. Princess Sam
    4:27 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Molly’s Mom has a dyson and it’s in our basement. She can’t wait to take it to her new apartment.

  28. Herd of Hounds
    4:39 pm on June 26th, 2013

    We got Dyson “Animal”. Again, expensive but SUCKS like crazy. Bare floors, and throw rugs. Oops, mom heading for Michigan in a.m. for family prob. Sitter here ready. Guess mom should get her own ‘puter.

  29. Melanie
    4:42 pm on June 26th, 2013

    I got in touch with the Dyson people and tried to convince them to do a trial with their vacuum in a house with (at the time) ten Newfs.

    They were very nice when they wrote back and said no.

    The Pack DOES love it when the gate is open. They run down the street to see all their friends they keep in touch with during the Twilight (or any other time of the day) Bark.

    This is why we now use the large gate to one of the yards to get them in and out of the car.

    I would love some Arctic water. I would put it near the bottle of Pacific water and sand that I collected years ago.

  30. bluecat
    4:54 pm on June 26th, 2013

    CHobbit – gate open is perfect. We sent it on to many friends.

    Mom loves her Dyson Animal. She got it because of me, me, me. I run away and hide when it comes out.

    “Lovely plans”…pondering. A film?

  31. Barb & Maggie
    4:56 pm on June 26th, 2013

    We don’t have a Dyson, just an Eureka upright. It works well on carpet and hardwood (only two bedrooms have wall to wall). The cup is a bit of a pain to empty out. The Dyson Animal is expensive, but we have seen it on sale for $300 range.

    Bee, Thanks for checking on BSD and Masquers.

  32. FinnDogsMom
    5:02 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Melanie: Ooooh…Artic Water would be cool. I have Pacific Water, Atlantic Water, Three Rivers water, and Lake Erie water. A friend of mine brought me sand from Lake Sanabria several years ago. I keep saying I’m going to buy cute bottles as all the water I have are in labeled cheap water bottles…

  33. Lefty
    5:03 pm on June 26th, 2013

    FinnDog: I’m white, too, or so I’m told. I’ve also heard reports that I have a black ear. I’ll have to take their word for it. If my math is correct—there’s a good chance it isn’t—-you must be as good looking as me since we’re the same color.

  34. FinnDogsMom
    5:17 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Lefty: Mom says I’m a looker…whatever that is and people are always telling me how handsome I am. We must both be good looking, then if everyone is telling us we are!

  35. Siber-H
    5:30 pm on June 26th, 2013

    I sae the bids for the Arctic Ocean water going up, up, up.

  36. Callie
    5:31 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Hey Finn – I’m a looker too. That DOES mean “white dog” right?

  37. FinnDogsMom
    6:09 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Callie: Mom says lookers are any member of the Nation Within. She tells my sister that she’s a looker, but my sister isn’t anything like me.

  38. Wose
    6:09 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Siber-H: I would love to have Artic Water. I can’t wait for our road trip!

  39. Wose
    6:12 pm on June 26th, 2013

    FinnDog’s Mom: That is one adorable picture! And Finn is a real cutie!

  40. Wose
    6:12 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Lefty: You are quite the looker yourself!

  41. O'Howlers
    6:13 pm on June 26th, 2013

    We have a Dyson animal. Mom does not like it. Then again, it was bought to replace her Tainbow after that finally wore out (after ~25 years). Nothing can replace a Rainbow.

    BSD is on our right!

  42. O'Howlers
    6:14 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Stupid paws. Rainbow.

  43. FinnDogsMom
    6:35 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Wose: What’s sad is that he knows it. He gets a prance to his step when he knows people are talking about him.

    I don’t think I ever introduced the little one. Her name is Abeni, or Abi for short. Someone dropped her and two litter mates off at the FD I volunteer at in a burlap sack behind the station. No one wanted to adopt her as she was the runt of the three dogs that were there, so I decided to bring her home. That was in April. Her and Finn get along fabulously. She’s too freaking adorable.

  44. dawson
    6:43 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Years ago, when I used to clean houses for a living, one of my customers had a Rainbow. I coveted one for a long time but the price tag was prohibitive. Up North, there is a dyson but I did not pay for it and I pretend not to know how to use it.

    FinnDog is very handsome and so is his sister. All the Snowhook Dogs are handsome. Smokin’ Joe super good looking after his haircut. (I find most any dog is good looking.)

    The weather report in Barrow sounds refreshing.

  45. Siber-H
    6:53 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Gah I am having some problems with the blog refreshing so if I disappear for the rest of the evening, don’t worry.

  46. Wose
    7:00 pm on June 26th, 2013

    FinnDog’sMom: Good-looking, and he knows it. : ) Abi is the cutest little thing…

  47. Barb & Maggie
    7:23 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Barb says she had a Rainbow years ago. It was great for people with allergies.

  48. Basil
    7:26 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Me too. Me too.
    I’m a looker too. See- I’m lookiting right now.

  49. Tupper and Gilly
    7:26 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Sorry about that, gang. We may have mentioned in the past – Basil is beautiful, but smart? Not so much.

    Abi is adorable. We would have adopted her in a heartbeat.

  50. Lefty
    7:27 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Wose: We never heard your verdict. Who is better looking? Me or Pancho? It’s me, isn’t it?

  51. Belle Starr
    7:29 pm on June 26th, 2013

    I need a baby Abi of my very own or I’m pretty sure I’m going to be in a bad mood.

  52. O'Howlers
    7:32 pm on June 26th, 2013

    We are loving all the pictures today. Why is it that the 4-leggeds on this here blog are the best-looking dogs anywhere?

  53. c.hobbit
    7:38 pm on June 26th, 2013

    They are the best looking because they are loved. The power of love is a beautiful thing.

  54. Pancho & Lefty
    7:39 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Howlers: Our Lady says the two-legged that belong to the four-leggeds on this here blog aren’t bad looking either. We’ve heard her rave about youse all having things like perfect skin and beautiful hair. We believe she’s words like jealous.

    More the the Howlers: Our Lady says she doesn’t believe Kat was ever shy. We’ve heard ‘tail’ of the time when Kat and our Lady met. Our Lady said Kat walked in the room and made herself at home, even a leaving a little fur behind as a gift.

  55. T.C.
    7:40 pm on June 26th, 2013

    And cats!

    It is ME me me.

  57. Melanie
    7:41 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Oh, Belle Starr, I think you would do great with a Abi of your own. Just so you know, there are many big dogs in little bodies.

    BlueKat, Mac – a dog with the attitude of his co-owner OTAS – was undecided about the vacuum when he was a puppy. He watched it carefully. Finally, he went up and gave it a huge smack. When it didn’t fight back, he figured it was okay.

    Now trying to get him to move when we’re vacuuming the floor is impossible.

    FinnDogsMom, That is an excellent collect of water. I should have gotten the Atlantic Ocean before we moved from the coast.

  58. O'Howlers
    7:48 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Pancho & Lefty, Kat has “selective shyness”. When meeting a renowned belly-rubber, her shyness seems to vanish into thin air.
    By the way, we want to let youse all know that our great friend, Cherokee, is recovering well from his surgery. Kat’s Godmom says he gets his stitches out on Friday. Thank you for all of your prayers and pawsitive thoughts.

  59. B. Stover

  61. FinnDogsMom
    8:07 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Here’s a good one of Finn, Abi, and Gigi.

    All the members of the Nation Within are lookers and their buddies are beautiful for loving them.

    A better looking evil pug I’ve never seen.

  63. Mollypop's Mom
    8:31 pm on June 26th, 2013

    I like the picture of Rio with a green bow on his tail much better.

  64. Barb & Maggie
    8:32 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Love all the pictures! Even you-know-who.

  65. Riƶ - The Evil Pug

  66. Wose
    8:40 pm on June 26th, 2013

    I am loving all these pictures! Some of the comments are making me laugh out loud!

    Belle Starr, what about your kitten and your moose?

    Lefty, I never kiss and tell, you handsome devil…

  67. Riƶ - The Evil Pug
    8:41 pm on June 26th, 2013

    What!?….I have a green bow on my tail??…grunt!….How did that happen…wheeze!

  68. Pancho & Lefty
    8:44 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Alice M: Our Lady shopped the clearance rack at the fabric store the other day. She came home very excited. She said she was looking at the clearance rack fleece and there was you staring back at her on a remnant of fleece. She snatched it up for the $2.00 price. She couldn’t resist. Now, the question remains, which one us will be sporting a kat dog jacket this year on the race circuit.

    Rio: Now that Beau has joined the group, that makes two pugs our Lady has seen.

  69. Wose
    8:47 pm on June 26th, 2013

    RIO! You are a hunk of burning love!

  70. Wose
    8:48 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Howlers: I am happy to hear that Cherokee is on his way to being tip-top.
    He’s a looker too!

  71. Pancho & Lefty
    8:49 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Dog blanket not dog jackets. Thanks to all youse we don’t have to wear paw-me-downs and homemade jackets this year. We have arrived!

  72. Wose
    8:52 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Pancho & Lefty: Youse are going to be stylin’ and profilin’ at Iditarod 2014!

    RIO! We’re you watching Beau eat the last Zinger in that picture? heh!

  73. Riƶ - The Evil Pug

    Kat-Fleece!….Oh dear God please do not let it be Junior who wears the Kat-Fleece on the trail….gah!

  74. Wose
    8:58 pm on June 26th, 2013

    The Snowhook team will be the best dressed dogs at Iditarod 2014!

    Please remember we still have not reached our goal for the Have Harness, Will Travel Fund. Can’t have our team wearing chewed up harnesses, can we?

    I also want to see what the handsomest, best smelling musher will be wearing, thanks to youse that donated to the Clothe the Giant Fund.

  75. Basil and Sage
    8:58 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Rio – yes, it will be Junior wearing the Kat fleece blanket. AND it will have a pink sparkly belly band.

    Good news about Cherokee.

    And we think Abi is cute too. We could roll her in catnip and bat her around like a little black ball.

  76. Pancho & Lefty
    9:10 pm on June 26th, 2013

    Make sure Junior gets the kat blanket, you say? Got it. We’ll let our Lady know.

    Wose: When the Giant returns, our Lady will try to get a photo of him in his new anorak. She says he looks so handsome in it. Personally, we don’t think he’s properly accessorized until he has a little Us on him.

  77. Riƶ - The Evil Pug

    We are hiding…, WAITING in the back room until the big stranger guy leaves. During dinner, the smoke detector downstairs went off, and sure enough the bottom of the hose was filled with smoke.
    Turns out something went very wrong with the furnace and hot water heater. So we called our guy that fixes such stuff and he is here now.
    Mama is gulping and rocking in the cornet wondering how much a late night call like this is going to cost.
    We just hope that the problem has nothing to do with animal fur….
    Saying good night for now.

    Smokin’!…Oh my dawg. Wasn’t it last week at this time that the drunk burglar showed up and the Kats were the “heroes”…grunt!…Now they are hiding in the back room showing their true colors…heh!…I hope that big guy does not take all of Golinka’s hard earned money tonight. Or is he just another kind of burglar??…wheeze!

    Beau: Love knows no bounds. Just ask Lefty who scaled the fence to the chastity pen for love. The result of Lefty’s call of the wild is the Detective Agency litter.

    Wolfie: It’s good to hear from you. I’ve been busy being adorable. It’s a good gig if you can get it.

    Wose: Can I not have a baby Abi of my very own in addition to my baby kitty and baby moose?

    Lefty!…Lefty is the father of the Detective Agency litter…snort!…OMYDawg. I was hoping these guys would be great Agents one day…sniff!…Now what will happen? Oh me oh my-oh…grunt!

    Rio: It certainly wasn’t immaculate conception. The lads are leggy like me, and Little is petite like her mom. Ever band of agents needs a few who are good with their paws and sometimes just past the other side of the law—that’s where we step in. It takes all kinds. For example, you need a distraction you, get Belle Starr. You need to blame someone, you get Belle Starr. You need a sparkly costume, you get Belle Starr. She’s a triple threat.

    Bed!…My friend says we should go to bed, but she doesn’t want to go to bed because she doesn’t want to wake up and go to the busy-place….sneeze!…The boney-fingered one is on an “extended medical leave”…heh!…But she is not talking to anyone to let them know how certain things are done…sniff!…My friend says the place is going to hell in a hand-basket, but not because the boney fingered one is gone. That is the only good thing that has happened….snort!…The powers that be tried to “fix” things too late, and now there are huge repercussions…wuffle!…Hence, she does not want to go to that place in the morning after she wakes up – so we are still UP…heh!

    Okay. Then, stay up with us and plot how to get our paws on some Slim Jims.

    Plot!…That’s what I’m good at – plotting. Beau is good at pooping, but me I’m the plotter…heh!heh!…What’s the plan?

    Factory!…There has got to be a Slim Jim factory somewhere, right?…sniff!….If we can obtain one of the factory workers id’s then we would have an “IN” into the front door…snort!…Then whoever goes in can find out exactly where those finished Slim Jims are stored….wheeze!…Then we can send in a team of highly trained Swat-Newfs to confiscate all those Slim Jims…somehow….grunt!…Still needs polishing, but I think it can be done…chuffle!yawn!

  99. Pancho & Lefty

    Rio: That is much more developed than our plan we were hatching. Our plan reads a little something like: Want Slim Jims. Get paws on Slim Jims. Eat Slim Jims. If caught, blame Belle Starr.

    Commander Riƶ, Agent Mathilda here. The Newf back has discovered the Slim Jim factory is in Troy, Ohio.

    Picture coming through for about now . .

    I sent in Agent Franklin (since he can make himself disappear) and he has found an obstacle. There are hundreds – well, more than two – freezers where they store the targets. He is not sure if we can get any Agents that have the willpower not to stand in awe of the magnificence of all that treasure. He took a quick picture on his go phone. (And thanks for making those phones mandatory equipment) It was difficult to understand his report. His jowls were full of Slim Jim wrappers.
