Congratulations, Teddy Rough Rider!

The random number generator has spoken (East German Army surplus circa 1956, sounds a little like Werner von Braun, somewhat creepily) and it said: Teddy Rough Rider! Teddy will be over in the special place for the month of Dec., and as soon as we get a mailing address (send to for Teddy’s human companion, a signed and paw-printed copy of The Sound and the Furry will be winging its way.

Next month? This could be you! Just upload a photo to the Friends Gallery. You never know what can happen!



Welcome Nikki, Sally, Grace, Max & Sheba, Ruby from Down Under, Halloween dude, dude with stuffed pink bunny.

    We wove Teddy and we wove Wose. The only thing better would be if I had been chosen. Congratulations Teddy!

    Good morning all.

    Yay. Teddy RR (and Wose, sort of).

    Newbies – thank you for supporting Snowhook.

    Good morning all.

    We won’t grumble about this months Friend at all. Hooray for Teddy!
    Have a great Sunday everyone. We are looking forward to a good show day and then sleeping in our own warm cuddly bed tonight.

    Good Morning! Happy Egg Day and Happy Teddy Month! We are so happy to see Teddy Ruff Rider as FOM! And Wose’s arm gets to share in the honor.

    For youse guys going Way Up North, the IditaRider auction begins today at noon. Too rich for our blood, or else it would have made the perfect Christmas gift for you-know-who…

    We just got a notification of flight changes. This will probably happen many times between now and February. But this latest schedule has them spending 5 hours in Minneapolis on the way home and not arriving in Philly until 10:45 pm!!!! How on earth will they make it to work the next day?

  7. Staff
    10:53 am on December 1st, 2013

    I got some changes in the schedule also. It only gives us a short time between planes on our change in Seattle. Makes me nervous because I wanted a couple three hours just in case. It is February after all. Yikes.

    Dear Snowbella, The MAS collective would like to choose Jem as our sponsored wheel dog. Jem of the blue blue eyes. Sorry Pancho and Lefty but it was an unanimous vote. The Eyes have it.

    And notice all that Jem is wearing his lovely official Snowhook black booties. YAY! We paid for those booties! Lets keep up the tradition.

    10:56 am on December 1st, 2013

    We only have 1 hour to change plains in D.C. !! Yikes!

    Poor Thieves. Someone needs to sponsor youse guys. Is there a two-for?

    (((((TEDDY ROUGH RIDER)))))


    So the Oley Howlers have to go East to go West . . There is probably some wonderful moral that should go with that. But after this weekend? Yeah, right.

    YSAS is filming the beginning of his actor’s reel this morning.

    LLL and I are not watching.

  10. Barb & Maggie
    11:11 am on December 1st, 2013

    Good morning all and we are sooo happy to see Teddy (and part of Rose) as FOM for the month of December. How long has it been since it was a Plunderer?

    We are mailing off our check to Rebecca for Staff’s too-cute pillow case. It is going to be a gift for Shannon, Barb’s Krazy Kat Lady daughter.

    More shopping to do on line this morning. Some dvds need to be ordered and a couple of things from Sur La Table.

    How is Fern doing? Any more visits to the chicken coop?

  11. Staff
    11:13 am on December 1st, 2013

    Gosh I am going to have to go to the postoffice! Somehow I had forgotten that part. sniff.

  12. Wose
    11:16 am on December 1st, 2013


    WooooooHooooo! I am so happy that my bestest friend on the blog, Teddy Ruff Rider won the FOM! I am happy that his mom and pop will get the signed and hopefully, paw-printed copy of the SATF.

    I would like to thank RIO! for the most excellent management of AC.
    And I would also like to thank Rebecca for providing Ralph,

    Staff: That is a fab picture of Jem!

    OMD!!! Teddy Ruff Rider is FOTM!!! Congratulations from the Plunderers to one of our own. WoooHooo!!!

    Rio & Sammie: Once again youse were not chosen by the Bid-O-Matic, but I know you gladly give up the coveted throne to our beloved Wooki’s little bro.

    Rio: We join in with the others to say a Big Thank You for your hard work on the Auction…albeit in very cramped quarters.

    And, a Hearty Thanks to Rebecca for her part in setting up Auction Central. Ralph lived up to the task and then some.

  17. O'Howlers
    11:50 am on December 1st, 2013

    Excellent pictures, B&M! We especially likethe one on horseback.
    Thanks for the Alaska song, Staff, but OMD! Is that the little trailer Mom and Pop and BooBear’s folks are staying in? Heh!

  18. Siber-H
    12:03 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Congratulations to TeddyRR!! One of us won! How cool is that!

    We like Mr. Saff’s video and song.

    Belle Starr, Please keep your sparkles away from my ocean water until it can be shipped to me. I do not want bling in my water.
    In advance…”That’s a good girl”.

    12:19 pm on December 1st, 2013

    How is this for a Sunday morning breakfast? Pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup, and dippy eggs? !!!! Mom had Kathryn’s giant egg, which was actually a double-yolk.

  20. dawson
    12:20 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Congratulations Teddy! With all Chet’s thousands of friends the RNG picked you, you, you! (and a teeny piece of Wose)

    I think (correct me if I’m wrong) there has only been one other active Plunderer to win and that was TC. Or did Trigger win too?

    Newbies: I join others in thanking you for supporting Snowhook.

    Mr Staff: Nice music. Only thing is…you’ll be going up to Alaska in winter, not summer. Heh, heh.

    Jem: Nice eyes and booties!
    Staff: What does MAS stand for again?

    Melanie: Who is doing the filming for YSAS if you are not watching? Go YSAS!

    Winter storm blew in last night. A Winter wonderland out there. Many opportunities for shovelers.

  21. Masquers
    12:28 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Great photos, Barb&Magpie! Thanks, Melanie.
    Rose & the Ruff Rider! How kool is that?
    Dawson: BearSpiritDog was the July 2011 FOTM.
    Siber: Hold off…no snow yet…but it’s coming.
    Someone here is following the HOH’s advice.
    (taking it easy)

  22. Melanie
    12:31 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Dawson, There is a cousin and friend involved. There is also gunfire.
    Had to tell the neighbors, and he ia carrying the permission from the guy who owns the land.

    The Pack was fine until Zoë wenat outside to put wreaths up on the doors. They do not want her ouside. I had Mac and Frank in my lap. In the recliner. We did not go over backwards.

  23. SnowBella
    12:43 pm on December 1st, 2013

    SiberH: I caught a certain someone just in time. Good thing that particular glitter bottle had a paw-proof cap to slow her down.

  24. Belle Starr
    12:44 pm on December 1st, 2013

    SiberH: Who’s a good girl? Me! For the record, that wasn’t my glitter. I was holding it for a friend.

  25. Pancho & Lefty
    12:49 pm on December 1st, 2013

    MAS: If you weren’t going to choose either of us, Jem is a good choice. Not only is he a great wheel dog, he has those beautiful blue eyes, and a great nose—he’s a triple threat. Thank you for sponsoring our pal.

  26. T.C.
    1:14 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Awesome, i never one FOM, but our Buddy won the very first Chet friend of the Month.
    And for the record, I am not afraid of birds. That loud, black monster in the living room can’t be a bird!

  27. Barb & Maggie
    1:15 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Thank you Melanie for posting the two pictures of Lily. Melanie thought perhaps our problem is that we had spaces and an apostrophe in the name. Tried changing that and we still cannot get them downloaded. Unsure of the problem.

    One picture is Lily with her peanut butter pie creation. It was excellent.

    The second is Lily a top her favorite horse, Iowa. He is a 4 year old Appaloosa, with a ton of personality. When he saw Kelly taking pictures, he actually stopped and posed for the camera, even with other horses going by him!

  28. dawson
    1:20 pm on December 1st, 2013

    BearSpiritDog: Of course! I vaguely remembered a big dog Plunderer winning. Now I remember some of the grousing about a “spirit” dog winning. Heh, heh. Good one Bear Spirit! So 3 active Plunderers have been the Friend of the Month: Two big dogs and 1 kat.

    Speaking of big dogs: Laughing at the vision of 2 large Newfs trying to get out of recliner in a hurry with Melanie underneath. Yikes! Glad the recliner stayed upright. I do not understand how two Newf lap dogs do not squish you flat as a pancake.

  29. dawson
    1:23 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Barb&Maggie: Lily looks right at home on top of that horse. I’d like a piece of that pie.

    Out for round two of shoveling snow. I’d say about 10 inches and we are supposed to get another 10 inches by tomorrow.

  30. Barb & Maggie
    1:24 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Love the Bluegrass tune, and we even like that charming camping trailer!
    What or who is MAS?

    Oleys, Not once in six years with 2 dozen hens did we ever get a double yolk egg.

  31. Tenzing
    1:25 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Elim wanted a place to lay his head last night. He has it on good authority that I make a great pillow.

  32. Siber-H
    1:25 pm on December 1st, 2013

    It would be fun to watch YSAS’s gunfight.

    Good pictures of Lily and horse. I could use some of that pie right now.

  33. Tenzing
    1:26 pm on December 1st, 2013

    B&M: MAS stands for Melanie, Amalia and Staff. They teamed up to sponsor Jem.

  34. Siber-H
    1:32 pm on December 1st, 2013

    I am too lazy to send out different SDDs.

    Rio? Do you and I want to sponsor Lefty? We agreed to go in together one one of the dogs.

    Dawson and Sharon? Do you two want to sponsor Pancho?
    I know I also went in with you guys to sponsor a doggie.

    Tenzing and Elim…very cute

  35. Melanie
    1:37 pm on December 1st, 2013

    BearSpiritDog, I thought you blurred over for pizza last night. Not that I’m complaining. Left over pizza. Yummmmmm

    Turned out there were six guys doing the filming. They had target practice first. All six of them. Just in case. Snicker.

    They wanted to make sure that YSAS could hit what he was aiming at. This way they knew when he was aiming at nothing, he was aiming at nothing.

    Looks good. Nothing was harmed in the making of the reel. Except some dirt.

  36. dawson
    1:39 pm on December 1st, 2013

    SiberH: Pancho? That thief!
    Heh, heh, heh. Yes!
    OK with HOH?

  37. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:02 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Lefty!….grunt!…Why does it have to be that guy?…grump!…He chews up harnesses and knocks over my beer and eats my hot-wings every chance he gets…wheeze!…Is he our only choice??…sniff!

  38. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:07 pm on December 1st, 2013

    OoooooOOMelanie!….What is an Actor’s Reel?…sniff!…And when can we see Clarkson’s?…snort!

  39. Melanie
    2:08 pm on December 1st, 2013

    HOHs might be traveling today.

    YSAS and LLL have just left. sniff.

    Soon it will be “Katie bar the door” and let’s watch some of our shows. Snicker.

    Remember Friday evening when I was freezing myself at a wonderful illumination?

    Here’s the two musicians.

  40. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:13 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Projects!….Well, someone here has to work on a project or two and then we are told that we have to go on a long walk….grunt!…By that time the Bronco game will start. Beau is not sure he even wants to watch those guys after the humiliating turn of events last weekend against the Patriots…grump!

  41. Lefty
    2:15 pm on December 1st, 2013


  42. Siber-H
    2:22 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Yes, Rio, We are going to sponsor Lefty.
    Mom and I love that song and we hear it all the time on the radio. Except now when we hear it we think of two Alaskan Huskies instead of Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard.

    I am afraid to even peek at the Broncos score today. Kansas City will be out for blood.

  44. dawson
    2:44 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Lefty: Heh, heh. You and Rio are so much alike. Actually, he could take a few lessons from you on how to consistently get the object of your attention in your mouth despite the owner of the object knowing you are going to try for it. You’re a great dog!

    Melanie: What is that otherworldly sounding instrument called. It looks like a strip of metal being played with a bow. Wonderful.

  45. Lefty
    3:08 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Dawson: You’re making me blush. I like to think I’m a great dog.

  46. Melanie
    3:09 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Dawson, she is playing the musical saw.

  47. Wose
    3:13 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Lefty, and a handsome dog at that,

  48. Wose
    3:16 pm on December 1st, 2013

    B&M: Your Lily is growing up to be a lovely lady.

  49. Wose

    Awwwwwwww! Tenz and Elim

  50. B. Stover
    3:30 pm on December 1st, 2013

    I’m also wondering what an “actor’s reel” is.

  51. Teddy Ruff RIder
    3:36 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Woo! Woo! I won, thanks to my best friend Wose who submitted the picture. That was from the very special day that me, my mom and dad got to meet Wose and the Griz, on our way to Vermont. I tried to be on my best behavior, but a little bit of devil dog may have slipped in along the way. I think Mr. Spence probably already has my folks’ address, but my dad said he will email it to him again just to be sure.

  52. Lefty
    3:52 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Ruff Rider: Before we forget, we want to wish you and your family Happy Hanukkah!

  53. Siber-H
    3:53 pm on December 1st, 2013


  54. Siber-H
    3:56 pm on December 1st, 2013

    uh That ditto was for Stover’s wanting to know what an actors reel is.

    But we also want to wish Teddy RR and his family a Happy Hanukkah.

  55. Melanie
    3:58 pm on December 1st, 2013

    It is always good to hear from you, Teddy Ruff Rider!

    An actors reel is a two to two and a half minute sample of his acting. This would be at the beginning of the reel as an intro and showing he knows how to shot a handgun.

    I will try to show you the finished project. It might have to be through SSD. Not sure his agent would approve otherwise. It will be awhile before it is complete.

  56. Melanie
    3:59 pm on December 1st, 2013

    All errors in word choice and grammar are due to Brain Fog.

  57. Wrotten Kats Mama

    Melanie. We understand about Brain Frogs. We get then after we have toad the line too long.

    4:52 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Hi, guys! Mom and Dad are recovering from a fun, family Thanksgiving. Company left this morning with more coming on Thursday. Mom would like to have her house decorated inside by then but it may not get completely done. Mom is no spring chicken anymore (no offense intended, Fern!). She has a very stressful work week coming up with a couple of very long days. She is going to continue puttering today and we will see.

    She is very pleased with her auction purchases. The bird pic will get framed and be a great present for a friend who is an avid bird watcher. She will keep Jem’s pic for herself and her sister actually bought the necklace (I just placed her bid for her). I made sure she made the PayPal payment this morning so it wouldn’t get forgotten. I will also make sure she gets the items she donated mailed as soon as possible.

    Texans lost again. At least they played better!

  59. Buddy and Leno
    4:56 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Musical saw?! The musical saw is the coolest thing ever! Well, it’s pretty cool, anyway.

    So been playing around with the iPhone camera again. The ace detection thing is pretty cool, it actually will tell you how many faces it finds and where in the frame they are. Then the camera software tells you if thepicture is well lit or blurry or what have you. It’s not smart enough to tell me if I took a picture of my thumb though.
    However, I did get a picture of Leno’s head yesterday. Yeah, I need more practice.

    And it looks like Leno and I may have our adventure after all. If so, it’s a train trip to New York on Tuesday, and, I’ll let y’all know when (if) all the last minute thingies happen and we get to go.

  60. Buddy and Leno
    4:59 pm on December 1st, 2013

    An I hate typos. “Face detection software”. 😛

  61. Buddy and Leno
    5:10 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Here’s the picture of Leno’s head. I think maybe I should try to get the rest of him as well sometime.

  62. dawson
    5:27 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Buddy & Leno: I have many pictures of my thumb. 🙂

  63. Princess Sam
    5:31 pm on December 1st, 2013

    And let’s not talk about Molly’s mom’s picture taking.

  64. Macy the min-pin
    5:45 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Hi, Leno’s head! Boo, we watched the game on delay and were still hoping the Texans could pull it out until we read your post. Oh, well. BTW *whispering* The Cowboys won, you know.

  65. Siber-H
    5:51 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Leno is a handsome guy. Love the expression on his face.

  66. Dima
    5:51 pm on December 1st, 2013

    We just got back from a good hike in the woods, over Monocacy Hill. What fun! Here we all are. I am the one in the black and white coat. I look pretty good, if I say so myself. 🙂

  67. Wose
    5:54 pm on December 1st, 2013

    OHs: That is a great picture of youse! Kat is getting to be a young lady!

    Leno: You are a good looking dude. I would just love to give you a great, big hug!

  68. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:57 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Bronx!…Train derailed!…yeeeep!….Please tell me Clarkson and LLL were not on that train….wheeze!

  69. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:17 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Relief!…Clarkson and LLL left Melanie’s in the afternoon. Seems the terrible train wreck happened in the morning…wheeze!…I am relieved, but sad to hear about the other passengers…sniffle!….Now I will never travel by train, ever again, or even for the first time…gasp!

  70. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:19 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Buddy!…You take way better photos than Molly’s Mom does and that is saying quite a bit given the circumstances…wheeze!

  71. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:21 pm on December 1st, 2013

    SiberH!….Couldn’t we sponsor Lily and her Appaloosa instead of Lefty….grunt!

  72. Buddy and Leno
    6:24 pm on December 1st, 2013

    The Seeing Eye™ makes some good looking dogs, that’s for sure. I have this one photo, last one wetook with the other Chet before we went to the vet that last time. Me and Leno nd Chet. I didn’t take that one. But this one’s classic (didn’t take it either)…you know how they say that humans start looking like their pets? This might prove it, this one’s me and Karl, my first guide, believe me they don’t make many like him.

  73. Buddy and Leno
    6:27 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Rio! Trains are cool! Lots more room than irplanes. Also, the Leno head picture took ages for me to get right. Anyway, if I do go on my adventure to the big city, I hope my train manages to stay on the tracks. Prayers for the victims of the train accident this morning.

  74. Kat
    6:45 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Boats are better than trains! That is how I travel.
    When Mom tried to put my harness on today, the quick clips were about 6″ from even touching. That harness was new in North Carolina the end of August! I am becoming a full-grown husky girl.
    I was so happy on my hike today, I did my jig!

  75. Siber-H
    6:45 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Rio, You are far less likely to get sick on a train than you are in the pressurized cabin of a commercial airplane.

    Rio, My mind is made up. We are sponsoring Lefty. Lily and her horse are lovely, but Lefty needs us.
    You are going to hurt Lefty’s feelings.

    hmmm I just peeked at the score of the Broncos game.

  76. Barb & Maggie
    6:45 pm on December 1st, 2013

    That train was supposed to be slowing down from 70 mph to 30 mph as it went around the curve. They may have been going too fast.
    Barb freaks out over air travel and thinks Amtrak is safe, then this happens. Gah!

    Boobear, We loved the necklace that Linda won. Is it for her or a gift?

    Leno, Yes you are a handsome guy. How is your Melanie?

  77. c.hobbit
    6:47 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Drove from Santa Paula to San Diego. Sometimes six lanes of traffic going south at 80 miles per hour and sometimes six lanes of traffic at a standstill. Made it. Proud of myself for not freaking out. Going back to Alaska on Tuesday

  78. Wose
    6:50 pm on December 1st, 2013

    RIO! That derailed train is on the Metro North line that runs along the Hudson River, where I live. The crash was in Spyten Dyvil (sp) , which is in one of the exclusive areas of the Bronx. If I had my old job, I would probably not be able to take the train in.

  79. Siber-H
    6:50 pm on December 1st, 2013

    You guys, both plane and train travel are much safer than an automobile.

    I believe there is more hope for Kat to be a Rockette than an Iditarod dog.

  80. dawson
    6:52 pm on December 1st, 2013

    CHobbit: I am impressed at your keeping your cool in 6 lanes of traffic.

  81. Siber-H
    6:54 pm on December 1st, 2013


    I mailed the check today for:

    My share of Lefty’s sponsorship
    My checkpoints
    My auction items.

  82. Siber-H
    6:56 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Hey Beau! GO BRONCOS!!!

  83. Wose
    6:57 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Siber-H: Kat would make a great Rockette! She has the long legs for it.

    CHobbit: Good for you for not freaking out! Any word on your lost documents?
    Oh, and as Rio would say, take the Airborne before you get on the plane home!

  84. Kat
    6:57 pm on December 1st, 2013

    I am so happy that the Snowhook Thieves will both be sponsored. I love those dudes.
    Siber, Momma said I can do both, and Rebecca already told me I can be on AJ’s team, in so many words.

  85. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:59 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Six!…Lanes of traffic!…grunt!….How on earth did you not Freak-Out!? …wheeze!…That is ridiculous even in a pugs estimation…gasp!

    For the next auction or boutique, we need someone to make a Plunder On sign. C.Hobbit’s picture must be on it.

    Thieves have feelings, too.

    Kat: Stowaway when your maw and paw come north to Alaska and we’ll suit you up.

    We will be much happier when our Hobbit is back where she belongs.

    Our Lady is leaving in a few minutes for travel to the far north. She will stay in town tonight and leave at the crack of dark tomorrow morning.

    Okay, that was not an Amtrak train.
    It was a MetroNorth Rail train.
    Sort of scary for commuters. They are the ones who use it.

    Lefty!…You may have a feeling here and there, but you have no conscience…grunt!….Give me 10 ta 20 good reasons why SiberH and I should sponsor you…sniff!

  90. O'Howlers
    7:12 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Lefty, Mom and Dad are bringing their coveralls. I can slip into one of those without a problem. Nobody will know I’m along for the ride. I do not want to let the Giant down. I just know he is counting on me to help the team.

    Rio, 8 of the 10 reasons you should sponsor Lefty are his toes. The Giant needs those.

  91. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:13 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Leaving!…Oh no! Rebecca is traveling again…wheeze!…I hope she packed her Airborne…sniff!…I also hope she can post here on the blog when she is safe and sound in her Anchorage Hotel…grunt!…Too bad the Hobbit Hotel is closed right now – she could have gone out to supper with CHobbit…wuffle!

  92. Kat
    7:14 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Oops. That was me…messed up and forgot to log the other Howlers off.

  93. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Howlers!…I don’t get your toe-math…grunt!

    Lily appreciates your comments, but Lefty needs you more.

    7:50 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Broncos!….Winnit!….Woooo!….Too bad Beau slept through the whole game, it was a good one…heh!heh!…He still has glutonitis. If he keeps us up again tonight, he is going to be in big trouble and trying to find his cold hard bed out on the living room floor…sniff!….Broncos winnit over Kansas City…Wooooo!…The Patriots are the real threat now…wheeze!

  97. Buddy and Leno
    7:55 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Melanie’s doing better today, should be home soon, we think. Thanks for asking.

  98. Melanie
    7:56 pm on December 1st, 2013

    And the Patriots won today!

    Lovely and strange picture from Buddy.

    Kat, you look ready to go!

    I’m for bed. TTFN

  99. Siber-H
    8:08 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Buddy and Leno, We wish Melanie a speedy recovery and hope she will be back with you real soon.

    The Patriots did win, but the Texans played a good game.

  100. c.hobbit
    8:39 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Lefty: I will feel better when I am b ack where I am supposed to be also. Now to find a place to eat dinner in Corona. My sister and her daughter will be doing a big spa day tomorrow.

    8:42 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Dawson & Siber H: Melanie was right. On the road today. Great weather, carpola traffic. Pancho sounds good to us. Allready sent $$ to Rebecca for that. Just glad to hear y’all remember. Dawson, we think you and mom are twins with Pancho and Galena.
    Buddy: Good news about Mama Melanie. Love your Leno foto.
    Rio: A Snowhook dog is a good dog.

    Gah mom is dragging her booty (and we don’t mean dof booties). Will try to keep her up a bit longer.

  102. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:47 pm on December 1st, 2013

    HoHo!…Saying all Snowhook dawgs are good dawgs is like saying all Pugs are good dawgs….snort!…I do not believe it.

  103. Herd of Hounds
    8:47 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Hobbit, great place just off the 91.

  104. Herd of Hounds
    8:48 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Right Rio. Except for you, all pugs are good pugs.

  105. BooBear
    8:51 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Maggie, mom’s other sister bought the necklace. Linda doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry but Aunt Pam likes unique items like that necklace. As far as I know, she is keeping it.

  106. c.hobbit
    8:55 pm on December 1st, 2013

    One funny moment while we were trying to stop for the night. My sister queried Siri in her phone as to the nearest hotel. We were referred to the Glen Eden Nudist Hotel. I guess you have to be specific in giving Siri questions. Next time we will ask for the nearest non-nudist hotel. LOL

  107. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:57 pm on December 1st, 2013

    HoHo!…You don’t know what you are talking about…sniff!…The other day my friend took Beau to the V-E-T and found out his shots are still up-to-date so the trip was for naught, but she also found out that the receptionist has gotten all her pugs for free because people want to git rid of them. She said between her and her best friend they had 5 free pugs within the last year or so…wheeze!…Beau is a prime example of people not taking care of a guy and then giving him away when he becomes intolerable…snuffle!…Now I have to tolerate him…grumble!

  108. Siber-H
    8:58 pm on December 1st, 2013

    HOH I will get my share for Pancho to Rebecca sometime this week.

    Dawson or HOH? What is my share?

  109. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:00 pm on December 1st, 2013

    SiberH!…He is sponsoring TWO Thieves…heh!heh!…Let’s just hope ole Lefty does not get sent home for chewing up harnesses again…grump!…That would not be money well sponsored…whiffle!

  110. Herd of Hounds
    9:02 pm on December 1st, 2013

    We must defer to Dawson on that. There are too many numbers zipping around in mom’s pea brain right now to be sure what is what.

    I GIVE UP!

  114. Siber-H
    9:14 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Sharon, I understand.

    Rio, Oh Commander of Auction Central. What is my share for Pancho? Please stop griping long enough to figure this out.

  115. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:19 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Gripping!….Hell, I’m stating facts!…grunt!

    Fair!..Share of Pancho (cough) is $125.00..sniff!…You are saving a penny a day right?…grunt!…All three of you are saving a penny a day – so 125.00 is your fair share…sniff!

  116. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:20 pm on December 1st, 2013

    What!? …You thought you could split him 3 ways…heh!heh!…Not so fast. He will probably cost the team way more than $375.00 just by taking him along….gruffle!

  117. Herd of Hounds
    9:28 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Siber Mr. H: Pay no attention to the pug behind the curtain! We know Dawson worked it out on this here blog one day. Can’t tell you what day. Can’t tell you the numbers. Can tell you these past 5 days with white shiitake driving, cruising around western VA, taking 40 minutes to get thru Knoxville on the interstate and now NUMBERS!!!!! Gah. Meltdown. Dawson, where are you when we need you?

  118. Siber-H
    9:36 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Rio, I don’t feel so bad now. Your math isn’t any better than mine. Rounding it up just a bit, my share would be $85.00

  119. Herd of Hounds
    9:44 pm on December 1st, 2013

    That sounds about right, but you didn’t hear it from us. We can only count to 3!

  120. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:46 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Math!…SiberH, my basic math comes up to 125.00 x 3 = 375.00 per Pancho…sniff!

  121. Herd of Hounds
    9:51 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Mom is just glad she doesn’t have to sponsor a pugnacious pugster in the pugditarod. Is there enough moola in the world for that?

  122. Siber-H
    9:54 pm on December 1st, 2013

    No, Rio…Pancho would be $250.00. He isn’t any more expensive that the other guys and girls.

  123. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:58 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Pugditarod!…snort!…It would be very expensive to sponsor me in a long, long race….sniff!…I would need The Long Long Trailer for starters…heh!heh!

  124. Herd of Hounds
    10:09 pm on December 1st, 2013

    But not to the food bowl, Rio.

  126. Tupper and Gilly
    10:14 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Rio – Its one thing for people to give Pugs away for free. It’s quite another when Pugs are given in a “Ransom of Red Chief” manner – kind of like Beau – here is the Pug, plus a crate, plus toys, plus a harness, plus a leash, plus…plus…plus….

    You should have taken fair warning just from that!

    Oh, and Mama is home, home, home. Safe from traffic and black ice and crazy drivers, etc. She’s home and we are never letting her leave again! So there.

  127. Herd of Hounds
    10:15 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Becoming dogatonic…need sleep. please allow sleep……ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz
    Nighty night.

    T&G’s Mama: Glad you are home safe……….e………..r…………….snort.

  129. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:21 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Tupper!…Yea, like I had any say at all when they dumped Beau off…sniff!grunt!

  130. Barb & Maggie
    10:22 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Rio, We remember The Long, Long Trailer. You recommended it to us a couple of years ago, right? Lucile Ball and Desie Arnez before they became Lucy and Desie.

  131. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:26 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Barb!…Yes! It is one of me and my friends dream to own a long long trailer and travel the country showing up on all the Plunderers driveways and hooking up to their water and electricity and hang-out for weeks on end…burp!

  132. Tupper and Gilly
    10:27 pm on December 1st, 2013

    We are tucking Mama into her nice soft bed. She will be more with it tomorrow.

  133. Siber-H
    10:27 pm on December 1st, 2013

    T&G Glad you checked in with us. I saw on the news about the bad weather and ice in MA.

  134. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:28 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Specific!….Actually, I’m not sure if it is one of my friends dreams, but when I dream about it she is driving…heh!heh!

  135. Tupper and Gilly
    10:29 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Last thought – Rio – if your friend shows up here in a long trailer, she is going to find herself being dragged to art shows and being forced to set up and sell her work.

    Mama can do it too – just ask Rebecca, who came to visit and was forced on stage to talk to a bunch of strangers.

    and now g’night for real.

  136. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:29 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Golinka!…Glad you are home safe and in your warm soft bed with all your pottery and jewelry in just their right places…snorkel!

  137. Siber-H
    11:05 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Pancho and Lefty…Not to worry. We will get you two sponsored.

    night all

  138. Barb & Maggie
    11:11 pm on December 1st, 2013

    Rio, You can come park in our driveway anytime.

    Night all.

    Goats, Melanie or whomever, we loved the hanging guy.

    We are watching the Maryland Redskins get beat by the New Jersey Giants. We dislike both teams, but mom likes Eli.

  140. Lefty
    11:54 pm on December 1st, 2013

    1. Because you can never go wrong with a charming miscreant.
    2. I am built like the Giant.
    3. I’m always willing to go in disguise.
    4. Doc and Charlie are the eaters of harnesses, not me.
    5. I’ve been to Nome.
    6. Saying I’m without conscience is like te pug calling the outlaw evil.
    7. I like to tease Belle Starr.
    8. I come with a theme song.
    9. Even the Order of the Pheonix had members with a dew claw over the line of the law.
    10. I know where Jr.’s eyebrows are hiding.

  141. Staff
    12:09 am on December 2nd, 2013

    Rio, Note number 4 above. Lefty and Pancho are the target of a smear campaign or an incorrect rumor. Charlie!!!(B can’t you do something about this?) and Doc are the culprits.
    Nighty noodle

  142. dawson
    1:16 am on December 2nd, 2013

    SiberH: Sorry I was out this evening when you needed an answer. You did the math correctly on the price for sponsoring Pancho.

  143. Lefty
    2:12 am on December 2nd, 2013

    11. Rio says he wants to go on a beer run and I’m the one to pick pockets for money for said beer run.
    12. I can leave my yard.
    13. We here love a certain pug.
