    Good morning Wose and everyone! We are not at all sure about cloning.
    Wose, thanks for the doodle and today the Winter Olympics kick into high gear.
    Frabjous Friday to all.

    I don’t understand why anyone would want to clone anything.

    Good morning all.

    Happy Friday, all!

    Mom was very upset last night. She is a huge Nathan Chen fan and was very nervous for him. All the other men were having problems landing their jumps in the figure skating and, sure enough, he did too. It is so unlike him. I believe another skater will substitute for him in the free skate so he can concentrate on the individual competition.

    Cloning. First Sheep. Now Dogs. Humans next? It’s only a matter of Time. Yeep!

    Today’s GOOGLE Snow Games Doodle is COOL! Thank You, Wose.

    Good Morning to B, the Hounds, Wose and Everyone.

    Boo Bear. Just to let you know that I did tell my dad about the new Raine Stockton and Cisco book by Donna Ball and he said to tell you thanks. He now has it on his Kindle. We are also anxiously awaiting the next book in the Dogleg Island/Flash series as well.

    Our Lady says they broke the mold when we were made. We would like to point out that we were no where near the mold when it was damanged.

    Thieves! I thought of you when I saw a counter surfing dog stealing pancakes. He was successful the first time and went back for more—setting off a small stove fire. In this article you can watch the video or just see the photos. Note: all is well at the end.

    It is going to be one of those days. Here is what happens when you own animals (or they own you.) I wanted to clean my phone and mini iPad on the counter. Found cleaning cloth, found mini iPad, let Sadie out. Lost cleaning cloth. No matter, found a special cleaning sponge. Went looking for cleaning spray. Fed cat second breakfast. Lost second cleaning sponge. Found cleaning spray to use on missing cleaning cloth. Noticed Denali made a mess outside litter box. Cleaned it up. Now have spray but can’t find mini iPad. Searching rooms. Found it in the master bathroom where I had laid it down while checking on Mr. Big. Carry mini iPad and spray to living room chair. See a third cleaning cloth nearby. Used it.
    This is why I keep a pair of scissors in every room.
    This is why I seem to get nothing done all day long.

    Hobbitz, any critters that come into your realm are truly fortunate.

    Grump!…All I got out of the Hobbits story was “Fed cat second breakfast.”…grumble!…I only get ONE damned breakfast any day of the week…wheeze!

    Boo!…I did not know Nathan Chen until last night, but they kept saying how badly he skated…wheeze!…I thought he was amazing. Who in the World can land a Quad-Anything perfectly?…yeep!

    Rio, wait until you see Nathan Chen during the men’s skating. I hope he puts his jitters behind him. And yes, I thought they were pretty harsh with him. His bad is much better than most of the other skaters best. His music and choreography is great.

    Rio: dogs can diet and Sadie has lost 2.5 pounds. Cats can’t diet because they get grumpy and mean unless you play with them nonstop or are able to toss them outside. In another two months winter will be fading and the cats will be dieting

    8:46 pm on February 9th, 2018

    Boo!…We here are excited to see him skate again. I know he can do better than the amazing stuff we saw last night…snort!…Russia seems to be a close contender and even he fell during a Quad…yeeep!

    Every time I turn the channel to watch the Olympics, I land on commercials.

    Hobbitz, we need to agree with Rio’s friend on the channel thing.

    Today is a big day in athletics. My girl, Sierra is racing in her first dog sled race. She and her grandparents came to live at the kennel last year and I fell in love with her and not just because she sneaks me snacks. I love her for her and she loves me for me. I help her with her school work and wotnot—-it’s a wonder she, me and her grandpa made it through seventh grade math—-but I digress. She has been training with the Giant and her grandpa and left the starting line this afternoon. She is driving a ten dog team and we expect her to get to the mandatory ten hour layover at 9ish kennel standard time. The Giant, Milady, and her grandparents will drive to the check point this evening. But, parents have a curfew of midnight. I would argue that grands and giants and ladies don’t count as parents. Heh. This has been me—-Wee—-reporting atop a lot o’layers.

    Wee Nigel, the layers are nice, the story is nicer. Night all!

    Thanks for the Update Wee Nigel!
    Go Sierra!

    Wow!..Wow!…Wow!…You Go Girl! You go Sierra!…snort!…What a Brave Girl!…Yes!…Driving a a 10 dawg sled team!…yelp!

    Sierra!…Do youse have a Pug ornament on top ‘O yer sled?…sniff!…It is Good Luck you know…heh!

  34. Wee Nigel
    10:47 pm on February 9th, 2018

    I am happy to provide the updates. Perhaps I should provide updates about eighth grade math.

    Rio: We have heard as much. Lacking a pug, Ole Doc tried to fill in what with being puggish in girth and temperament, but the Giant said no. You would think a veteran musher would know a thing or two about race strategy, but alas…

  35. Riõ - The Evil Pug
    11:04 pm on February 9th, 2018

    No!…I’m not seeing Ole Doc as a Pug ornament no less a spokes-pug-dawg…grunt!…Just feed us the Sierra Race updates on yer own Nigel! Yer Ears are on the line…grunt!

  36. Wee Nigel
    11:09 pm on February 9th, 2018

    We debated about who should pose as a pug. Clearly, we chose wrong. I can only make updates with Ole Doc in the mix. He has the pizza guy on speed dial.

  37. Riõ - The Evil Pug
    11:10 pm on February 9th, 2018

    Nigel!…Knowing Ole Doc as I do…sigh!…You may or may not have to provide most of the Sierra updates on Top of Ole Doc, just because you will have better visibility…grunt!

  38. Riõ - The Evil Pug
    11:12 pm on February 9th, 2018

    Pizza!…I feel confident Ole Doc can balance a large pizza on his outstretched tail…snort!…That thing is made of wire and concrete…heh!heh!

    Rio: It is like the two of you were separated at birth.

  40. Nigel
    11:18 pm on February 9th, 2018

    Updates! I can tell you there are no updates as this time as this race is Ole school sans tracker. Teams are halfway to the layover, that much I know.

  41. Riõ - The Evil Pug
    11:34 pm on February 9th, 2018

    Birth!…No wander My Tail is so stiff and hard to curl especially when I think of who is eating all my treaties!…grump!

    Report! I can report that Sierra made it to the checkpoint at 9:07 pm Kennel standard time. She and all of the dogs were in good spirits. She had a mandatory ten hour layover before leaving to come back the way she can. The Giant and Milady and Sierra’s grandpa are heading back to the checkpoint at 6am to see her leave the checkpoint at 7. Temperatures are -13 degrees! Luckily, she is wearing AJs old parka. Have I mentioned that the Giant is 6’4” and Sierra is not 6’4”. His old parka is like a dress on her. (Belle Starr insisted I provide a fashion update).
