    Good Morning to you, HerbKats the First,
    and to B, the O’Howlers & Everyone.

    Another conflicting Study. It Boggles the Mind.

    O’Howlers: Yes! Staff and the Shake Your Booties Fund. We Here drempt about them last night and it was the first thing on our minds this morning. Time’s awast’n.

    Good morning, everyone! Wolf/dog article wouldn’t open, will try again later. Another low 20’s morning here. Our first really chilly winter in 3 years but no real white shiitake yet. Sunny so Darah went wading in the pool and swimming in the sushi pond. Pookey is having yet ANOTHER round of raccoon bite break-outs, poor girl. At least this time she is keeping food down and has an appetite :) Me, the labradoo extraordinaire, I’m mom’s shadow and car rider. Life is great!
    If y’all are ailing, our pawsitive thoughts are still with y’all.
    Can we have a sabbatical Saturday? Let’s try. (as in a period of rest)

    Greetings!
    It is snowing here in the town of Croton on Hudson and looks very pretty.
    Haven’t been able to get out from under th Rose quilt entirely yet. She blowing my nose and coughing up oysters. I apologize for bind so disgusting.

    RIO! The SUPPER BOWL party will be at my place!

    11:08 am on January 18th, 2014

    It is snowing in a very pretty, Hallmark type fashion here. Thank goodness the snow melts upon hitting the ground after all the warm days we have had.

    Diane – in answer to your question last night, the Storyteller is our Daddy, also Daddy to Basil and Sage.

    We are all for Sabbatical Saturday. After the last couple of days, Mama is just toast.

  8. Tupper and Gilly
    11:14 am on January 18th, 2014

    You know, we had fun a couple of weeks ago reading everyone’s introductions to Diane. We learned some new things about our family here.
    Anyone interested in doing a Photo Day? (Don’t worry Siber, Mama has pictures of you that she can post for you) We would love to see new pics of everyone. We haven’t seen LuLu or TeddyRR for a while, and we would love to see pics of BlueKat and BStover…..hint, hint….

    11:15 am on January 18th, 2014

    Rose: Remember, we here have already reserved a comfy chair, with a snack tray nearby, for that really big partay.
    Wolves: Wait a minute…youse of the latest “scientific study”…are you saying Herr Wolf is NOT an ancestor of my faithful companion? I beg to differ. Have you seen his wiley ways?

  10. Basil and Sage
    11:16 am on January 18th, 2014

    We’re in. Of course we are also BE-UUU-TIFULL

    (giggle)

  11. O'Howlers
    11:17 am on January 18th, 2014

    Sabbatical Saturday sounds great to us.
    Poor Pookey! We have never had that problem from raccoons, but thanks, HOH. Now Mom has a brand new worry. :)
    Drum roll please…..Fern just went down a stair step, and then she went up that step!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!
    And, we forgot to give a cheer to Nana yesterday, for her great post on Chet’s page. That article was so much fun, Mom stole it and posted it too.

    Here’s looking at you, Herbs.

  13. Staff
    11:32 am on January 18th, 2014

    Sage and Basil, I clicked on your picture to see if bigger and notice THERE IS A MOUSE RIGHT BEHIND YOU! Quick, like a little pug, grab it!

    PS Alice M. Johnson is quite impressed with your fluffy tails.

  14. Melanie
    11:40 am on January 18th, 2014

    Good morning. I tried to read the article, but my eyes kept shutting. Methinks the ultrasound stirred up stuff, and it will be another day drinking the ocean for me.

    I will lurk most of the day.

  15. Basil and Sage
    11:46 am on January 18th, 2014

    Staff – thanks! We got that mousie and beat the catnip stuffings out of it.

    T.C. – looking good, buddy

    Melanie – glub, glub, glub

  16. Wose
    11:59 am on January 18th, 2014

    Masquers, you my dearest, will have the best seat in the house…my lap! I don’t know if the plans got by Rio last night, or he just read every other word….. Sounded like he didn’t know of the plans. Plus we have to find a way to get him out of the yard.

    TC, you are quite the looker!

  17. Wose
    12:00 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Herbs, youse are very handsome.

    KATS RULE!

    Fern – glad to hear you are recovering. Hope to see you doing the Chicken Dance soon!

    12:33 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Masquers, I love that picture of you!
    Bear Spirit Dog, You are quite handsome. I love that picture and I am happy that it is on the Rose quilt!

  23. Wose
    12:34 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Masquers, we may have to call in re-enforcements. Ahem, P&L perhaps?

  24. Siber-H
    12:37 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Wait a year and we will have another theory about where us dogs came from. It is logical to assume the Arctic breeds came from the wolf…just look at us.

    We are glad Fern is improving.

    Hi Bear, Nice enlarged photo…one handsome dude.
    ok, and pretty kats. I am in a good mood today.

  25. Barb & Maggie
    12:37 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Yes, BSD, you are a handsome guy! And Masquers too.

    Staff, we must have been a little unclear on this Basset adoption thing. The agency has 3 senior girls, one of which could come to live with us. Didn’t mean Barb was considering all three, just one of the three. Do you think she has totally lost her mind! The agency is called AAROOO, do you think there is a reason for that? Our neighbors on the one side, who don’t like barking dogs, would love that for sure!

  26. Masquers
    12:38 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Rose: Excellent idea! The wiley ones will have it figured out in no time.

  27. Wose
    12:39 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Masquers, Chris, our gourmet chef friend is on the job for snacks and dessert.

  28. Barb & Maggie
    12:40 pm on January 18th, 2014

    This is for Fern, in case she decides to cross the road!

  29. Basil and Sage

    One very handsome Siber H

  30. BearSpiritDog
    12:47 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Siber-H: About the Ancestry Thing…My thoughts exactly.

    Barb&Magpie: AAROOO! We Love that Name!
    Question: Didn’t the agency want you to Foster an older companion of one of the dogs?
    Fern crossing the road? The PT must have worked!

    Wose: Your Master Chief will be supplying the Buffet? Wowzer.

  31. c.hobbit
    12:52 pm on January 18th, 2014

    STAFF & RIO: I went to the ATM yesterday and got a bunch of $20s. So….one $20 bill for the SHAKE THE BOOTIE fund and one $20 bill for the FEED THE GIANT fund will find its way to Snowhook in the mail!!

    GO SNOWHOOK!!

  32. c.hobbit
    12:54 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Siber-H: Handsome dog! But what happened to the mascara and eye mask? I hadn’t realized that you had a white face. I do like the blaze on your head.

  33. Staff
    12:55 pm on January 18th, 2014

    ***BOOTIE FUND***

    YES! We are late, late, for a very important date. Those booties will not pay for themselves and the dogs need to have their feet protected.

    So we have an offer of a matching 20.00 gift so if you wish to donate any amount (even $2 so I can be back to even numbers again)I will be happy to match it! C’mon guys we are just over 1/3 of the way to our goal. We are at 623.00.

    Bootie Bootie Bootie..

    Oh and for the matching funds donor….

  34. Lefty
    12:56 pm on January 18th, 2014

    I spent some quality time with the vet yesterday. I’ve had an abscess that has been drained several times, but kept coming back. Finally, I went under the knife yesterday—whatever that means—between doing cannonballs into a pool of beer with Rio, brother and the Leonards. While I was in the house last night, I opted for the efficiency of jumping down the flight of stairs than going the old fashioned, one step at a time way. Was I hurt? Nope. Have I ever seen the giant move so fast? I don’t recall.

    Wose: Pancho and I are at your service.

    Melanie: You, like all the Plunderers are in our prayers. We may be Thieves, but we are not without ‘ligion.

  35. Barb & Maggie
    12:57 pm on January 18th, 2014

    BSD, That is not really Fern, just a chicken that looks like her. They were advertising safety vests for chickens, so they are more easily seen by motorists.

    AAROOO is the 2nd agency we contacted. The first was a large facility that had Emmit, a Shih Tzu-terrier mix, who was 10. They wanted Barb to foster him and his mom, Cuddles, a Shih Tzu. She is 14 and feeble. Barb thought about it and then turned them down, due to my size and activity level, whatever that means. She says I am like Chet and sometimes don’t know my own strength. I think she was afraid I might accidently hurt Cuddles.

  36. Herd of Hounds
    1:16 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Good idea of the fotos for Diane. She hasn’t met the POP (peck of parrots) so we’ll start with them.

    Maggie the yellow nape amazon.

  37. Barb & Maggie
    1:17 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Staff, We still owe a check to Snowhook, so we will add another $10 to it for the Shake Your Bootie, matching funds offer.

  38. Herd of Hounds
    1:19 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Next

    Bucko aka Bu-bu bird. A double yellow head amazon.

  39. Herd of Hounds
    1:21 pm on January 18th, 2014

    And last but definitely not least…

    Diablo the devil bird :) An orange-wing amazon.

  40. Siber-H
    1:27 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Herbs, Thanks for the picture.
    CHobbit, Dima and I do not wear much eye makeup

  41. Barb & Maggie
    1:38 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Do the POP speak fluent English?

    Snowing like crazy here! May be getting an additional 2″. Very pretty out there, but we are staying put.

  42. Belle Starr
    1:44 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Wose: Now that the Damn Pixie Who Stole My Sparkles is back home for a couple of days, I’m going to nurse you back to health. I will also bring a birthday tennis ball for Grizz. I had one earlier for him, but Elim got to it first.

    Staff: Shake, shake, shake!!! Because drop bags are due in the not too distant future, we had to place the order in time for the booties to be made. Yeep!!! But get this, Snowhook won’t be in plain, boring, giant color booties this year. We will be in green booties! We did that special for you, you, you!

    In just a little while, the Giant and that Damn Pixie are going to drive to Fairbanks to get meat for the drop bags. There is a winter storm advisory, but it is the only time they have to make the trip. I am sure that most wonderful pixie who borrowed my glitter will leave me in charge while they are gone.

  43. BearSpiritDog
    1:58 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Barb&Magpie: That comment about Fern was said Tongue in Cheek. We know she isn’t out and about as of yet.

    Staff: We will add another $12 with our check to Snowhook (to get you out of the -$2 spot)

  44. Herd of Hounds
    1:59 pm on January 18th, 2014

    AJ and Rebecca, be safe on the trip.
    Green booties with blue and grey jackets? Stylin!
    B&M: Don’t know if the POP’s English is fluent or not, but it is constant AND loud with a bit of Spanish thrown in.

  45. BearSpiritDog
    2:03 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Siber-H is the eye make-up mostly a Girl Dog Thing?

    C.Hobbit and Magpie: Thank youse for the idea to add to the pot.
    We only wish we had the funds in our Treatie Jar to cover the remainder needed for the booties.

  46. BearSpiritDog
    2:05 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Staff: A word of warning…DON’t match the $2!

  47. Siber-H
    2:07 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Bear, I’m making a very general statement, but the Sibers girls do seem to wear more eye makeup than the guys.

    Rebecca and AJ, Safe travels.

  48. Fern
    2:09 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Out and about with my sisters. That’s me at the bottom of the picture. Isabel wouldn’t get off the nest box, so she didn’t make the family photo.

    Wiw! I guess this is what happens when I show up late.

    T and G–Thanks for the additional information (also Hello Sage and Basil).

    Fern–Well done, and the picture of you and your sisters was lovely.

    Nana–Also well done (from yesterday) playing catchup again.

    EVERYONE–I’m loving the photos! thank you so much!

    I’m Lucy Lou the labradoo extraordinaire and usual mouthpiece for the HOH. Mom and the daddy dawg did pay for me but I was with a man who didn’t understand my exuberance. (I was a wild child).

    Ain’t my smile great?

    You’re all so gorgeous!

    3:11 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Posting current pics is such a fun idea. All of ours, including Fern’s are from Today, btw.
    Pookey, you lookgreat, as do those POP.
    Meash is breathing heavy after seeing Siber-H. Heh Heh!

    3:20 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Barb and Maggie thanks for the 10.00. Whoo HOOO.

    Did you hear? LIME GREEN BOOTIES.

    How did Snowbella talk the giant into those? Are they sparkly too? heh heh heh.

    Save a few used ones out for next year’s boutique! There are a few lime green ones on this team…

  62. Staff
    3:26 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Bear Spirit Dog! Yay! Thanks for the warning about the extra $2. I was matching it but now – I am not…snicker.

    We still have 20.00 to match…AND we are very very close to the garden potholder threshold.

    AJ and Bella have a safe trip in for food. Thanks for the bootie info.

    Alice chose this picture for Bear Spirit…heh heh heh

  63. Herd of Hounds
    3:30 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Like today!

    HOH; Nice photos of the POP!

  67. Herd of Hounds
    3:59 pm on January 18th, 2014

    We will NOT post fotos of sushi (may be fewer than 6 now). BTW,, Diane, that is what we call the goldfish in the pond. We like to go bobbing for goldfish and crunch them up when we catch them.

    4:10 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Hi Diane! My name is Kat, but Momma thinks it is really Katrina. I am the youngest of the Oley Howlers. Dima is my brother/pseudo dad, and Mama Meash is sort of my sister. I am the Smoochiest Smoocher, and as you can see in this picture, I have learned to howl with the rest of the family.

  70. Diane C.
    4:12 pm on January 18th, 2014

    HOH–Probably a good idea, if the population changes so quickly.

    About the research on the first page–don’t dogs come from Heaven?

  71. Kat
    4:17 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Not me, Diane. I am told I came from Chemung County, NY. But Momma did say I would be going to heaven one day a way long time from now.

  72. Diane C.
    4:18 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Trigger and Kat–It is a privilege to meet you both. Does either of you blur?

  73. Herd of Hounds
    4:19 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Diane, we know they go to heaven…sob, sob. Always cry at that movie.

    I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille.

  75. Barb & Maggie
    4:23 pm on January 18th, 2014

    I certainly did come from Heaven, I know that for a fact. Although for some reason Barb calls me a devil dog every once in a while. Do they come from heaven too?

    LOVE all the photos.

    BSD, we thought you were being tongue in cheek with the comment about Fern, but just wanted to make sure. After seeing that new picture of her with the flock, she might be about ready for one of those vests. Whaaaa, we miss our chickens.

  76. Tupper and Gilly

    Diane, The Pixie is Snowbella (Rebecca)of Snowhook.

    Hey, My pal and hero, Trigger!

    Hot One, Adorable picture.

  78. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    4:26 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Green booties? Who can resist? Not I. Green is the color of grass and trees and frogs and four leaf clovers. It is also the color of mom’s checks, and we’re sending one to Snowhook for $150. ($100 for the Elder Checkpoint, which I haven’t paid yet, and $50 for Green booties.)

    And speaking of the Elders, mom bought ingredients for toffee, including European butter. The Plunderer who puts us over the top will receive their very own box.

    Diane, the Pixie is none other than Rebecca, so named when she cut her hair for Locks of Love.

    4:29 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Snowing like crazy here, for hours now. Barb has to trudge back to the neighbors to let their Lab, Fred, out one more time since they are gone for the day. Barb went earlier and couldn’t get the automatic garage door to stay closed. After she worked on it for about 20 minutes and about 20 tries she called them. Jamie said, Oh yeah, we’ve been having trouble with it, here’s what you do……Grrrrr.

  81. Riö – The Evil Pug

    Walk!…grump!…All afternoon my friend has been busy working on a special project – it is taking an incredible amount of time because it has to be perfect…snort!…Now she feels the need to drag me and Beau around the neighborhood…grump!

    Fairbanks!…How far is Fairbanks from Willow?..sniff!… Does this mean the Giants will be gone all weekend?…wheeze!

  82. Kat
    5:01 pm on January 18th, 2014

    I do blur, Diane. Wolfie taught Luna, and Luna taught me. That is how i get to the plunderers who need smooching, though my sense of direction is not so hot. Mama Meash says i need some Geography lessons.

    I love cats, and all of the cats on this here blog are stunners, but Bluecat is the most beautiful cat I have ever seen!

  83. O'Howlers
    5:05 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Fairbanks! We missed that. It sounds far.
    And Lefty has an abscess…oh my!!!!

    Hobbit, How is Sadie? Mom knew someone whose doggie got very sick and had blood in his urine when they went away and the dog was in a kennel. She said it was apparently stress induced, and he recovered after they were home with him for a while. She is wondering if Sadie’s problem could be similar.

  84. Trigger
    5:10 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Diane: Blurring at 150 lbs plus is a challenge (although the Newf’s seem to have the technique down pat) BSD is “trying” to teach me the Art of Time Travel.

    5:43 pm on January 18th, 2014

    Wolfie Wigglebutt 50.00 for green booties! YAY. That means 20.00 of your 50.00 went for the matching peeps. and the other 30 put you over the next level and so you get a potholder. Either the garden veggie one or, if you prefer, the green and pink polka doted ice cream one.

    Let me know!

    REMINDER…

    Right now we are aiming at the 1000 booties level.
    As an inducement to keep donating we have a special offer from Golinka of a sparkly pair of dragonfly or butterfly earrings or necklace, made to order! The generous person who puts us to or over 1000.00 will get to tell Golinka the preferred winged creature and I don’t know what else all.
    WOW!!!

    And as another inducement we now have another matching offer.

    The next 100.00 donated will be matched.

    (And if anyone else wants their donation to be a match for ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY, let me know)

    We are at 735 now…YAY just over half way. You guys are great!

    So an unexpected check came in the mail today (the best kind of check). I cashed it and can contribute another $20 to the Shake Your Bootie fund and another $20 to the Feed the Giant fund. So adding my first contribution from this morning to this one, that is a total of $80 to the two funds. I sent off a SDD.

    Green booties! I never thought I’d see the day.

    Fairbanks is about a 5-hour drive from Willow.

    Off to take a nap with Sadie…

    Fairbanks! I wanted to be in charge if Lefty while the two-legged’s are away, but they said that was not going to happen. Another two-legged was out in charge, second only to Mama Luna.

    The booties are more of a true green than lime. Lime green would do nothing for the Giant’s skin tone. And, we all know that the giant is all about looking good. Giggle! Oop! Mama Luna is giving me a look. Got to go.

    Our total on the bootie fund right now is 885.00. That is counting the 130.00 that needs to be matched. We have to match it to get it.
    Right now 20.00 of that 130.00 is matched. I am going to bed early tonight so won’t be counting any more donations tonight. I hope y’all are looking under the couch cushions for your treaty money to see if you can find a little something more to donate.

    We here at Booty Central really appreciate Wolfie and Golinka (who say they have nothing to donate) for these two great prizes. We know you are all working the best you can to protect the dogs of Snowhook.

    Nighty noodle.

    Rose, Hope you feel better soon. The image of the oysters this morning was just too, too graphic!

    We have Philomena in our Queue too. We loved The Butler, but some of the scenes (i.e. the lunch counter) were very intense and upsetting, hard to view.

    Night from us too. Sweet dreams.
