    Hmmm . . In order to make that law understandable to some folk, why not “it is illegal to bark at dogs – be the dogs in cars or not in cars.

    Good Morning! Rain today. I will be off to get needled in a few whiles.

    Gooood morning, everyone. Bark, woof, howl, yodel. Have a tip top Tuesday.

    Who likes those Gators anyway. Not us.

    Good morning. We had a LOT of rain overnight, and more on the way. The thunder was super loud too. Then an emergency alert woke us all up. What is up with this silly weather this summer?

    We had a lot of rain last night, and now it is sticky, icky, and humid. The next two days should be better.

    RIO! Your friend too some ab fab pictures, and video ath the game! Looks like she was sitting in some good seats!

    Well, glad we read that one, or we never would have guessed from the headline. The guy probably just thought he was being funny.

    We had a little rain, but not a lot. It is still overcast, so maybe we will get some more before it clears off this afternoon.

    Oleys, how are your young feathered friends doing?

  6. O'Howlers
    9:24 am on July 23rd, 2013

    Barb, They are no friends of ours. They don’t even let us near them. But from what we can tell, they are getting big big big! They also look like they are loving life. One of them always flies onto Mom’s head and hangs out with her, which makes us jealous.

  7. Barb & Maggie
    9:30 am on July 23rd, 2013

    We used to have one hen that wanted to fly up on Barb’s head, not sure why. We also had a couple of Speckled Sussex hens that would sit on her lap if she sat out in the chicken yard. They were very curious and talkative. They would also jump straight up if she held a treat for them.

    B&M: Perhaps the head sitting chick viewed Barb as a mate? Mom had a budgie who did something similar.

    10:04 am on July 23rd, 2013

    Good morning all.
    Howlers – you have some funny chickens. Is that hopping thing a game?

    We want you all to know that we were VERY GOOD while Mama was away. We have NO idea who made that big old mess in the den. And besides that, someone here found Sage’s collar with his microchip tag – it has only been missing for a year. But it was out in plain sight in the middle of the rug. Guess Mama doesn’t see too well if she didn’t notice it for all this time.

    And big whoop that the royal couple had a little one. It’s not as if she had a bunch of Royal Puppies.

  12. Herd of Hounds
    10:08 am on July 23rd, 2013

    T&G: Yes, we prefer 4 legged pups to 2 legged pups but the funniest thing was Sonja (mom’s wolf dog) dragging the first grand away to keep. Had to “trade” him for a hot dog 🙂

  13. Gus & BooBear
    11:23 am on July 23rd, 2013

    Mom is silly, we guess, because she loves all the hoopla over the birth of the new prince.

    New Andy Carpenter book on the Kindle this morning. Glad Mom finished the book she was reading last night.

    Wose, Mom wants to know if you and the Griz are thinking about heading back north to Alaska for the start of the race again?

  14. Rose
    12:00 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Gus&BooBear: I’m silly too. I love all this Royal stuff.

    Grizz is unsure about his current work status, and whether or not he’ll be able to get another job soon. That is secret code for no. If I save some pennies and bust open my piggy bank there is a possibility that I may go myself.

  15. Gus & BooBear
    12:12 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Wose, we think Mollypop’s Mom was thinking about making the trip. Don’t know what she decided, but maybe if you go without your other half, you and she could travel together. It would be fun to have a group of us there.

  16. O'Howlers
    12:18 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    We here are with T&G. Big whoop.

  17. Rose
    12:23 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Gus&BooBear: Thanks for the 411 on MollyPop’s Mom. It would be a ball having a group of Plunderers together. Imagine all the stamping of Plunderer Passports.

  18. Staff
    12:59 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Mr.Staff asked me if I wanted to go on a nice vacation for our 25th wedding anniversary this coming March. He suggested Florida and I suggested Alaska.

    We are in negotiations.

  19. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:36 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Alaska!…sniffle!…Youse all are going North to Alaska without me…snuffle!

  20. Gus & BooBear
    1:37 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Yeah, Staff!!! Hope you win this one!

  21. Melanie
    1:38 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Without me too, Riö. It will be just you and me on the blog!

  22. Gus & BooBear
    1:38 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Rio, maybe your friend will decide to take that long overdue vacation North to Alaska!!

  23. Herd of Hounds
    1:42 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Without us, too. Mom told Old Fart she wanted Alaska for her b-day in March. He has secretly decided on a cruise 🙁 🙂 Don’t know which to do.

  24. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:42 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Puss N’ Boots!…Maybe, but I’m not holding my pug-breath on it…sniffle!

  25. Rose
    2:06 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    RIO! Maybe your friend and I could go together.

  26. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    2:11 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    We vote Alaska!

  27. c.hobbit
    2:19 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    My “Welcome to Your Furever Home” gift to Teddy: a $40 donation to the Have Harness Will Travel Fund in his name. Every dog needs a harness! I will email Rose and Rio soon.

  28. Barb & Maggie
    2:26 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    We will be here on the blog too. Alaska is out for Barb since she is obligated to go to Texas in November for the nephews at-long-last wedding. Only good thing is that she should be able to meet up with Macy’s mom and G&B’s mom while there.

  29. Rose
    2:36 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    CHobbit, sniff, You have been so generous with your donations to Have Harness, Will Travel. You are a wonderful friend to Snowhook. sniff

  30. Rose
    2:37 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    B&M: Don’t forget to get passports stamped!

  31. Masquers
    3:15 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Great photos and video of the game, Riö. Let the contract negotiations between your friend and the Rockies begin. Heh.

    On a local note: WoooandHooo! The M’s have won 7 straight.

    Teddy: I know you will do your famous mentor, 00Wookie proud. As soon as you master that prerequisite course that is…….

  32. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:15 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    CHobbit!….wow!…Rose and I will double down on that generous gift to make it 80 smackers!….Whoooo Hoooo! …As soon as you send an official email of course…sniff!

  33. Rose
    3:45 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    RIO! Whoooohooooo!

  34. Tupper and Gilly
    4:29 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    sniff – we will be Alaska tripping vicariously too. Mama says the snow is way too deep for short Corgi legs. But you can bet your bottom dollar that we will be cheering just as loud as anyone at the start and finish lines. Mama also says that when you are in Alaska in spirit, you don’t risk freezing your patootie off either.

    4:39 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    I haven’t even got to read the blog yet but I did want to say that I need a few addresses, if anyone who knows can send me Spencer Quinn, SiberH’s, Princess Sam’s, Herd of Hounds and Finn’s mom’s addresses. I have also sent an email to Mollypop’s Mom asking her to confirm her address and last name.

    I have envelopes mostly addressed and ready to go but too many “Dad distractions”, appointments and such are slowing me down considerably. Probably Thursday morning before the passports get mailed. I have pictures on my computer but cannot figure out how to post or email or get them to you.

    Hopefully will get to read the blog in a few hours

  36. Pancho & Lefty
    4:40 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    T&G: If you stick with long-leggeds like us, we can break trail in the snow for you. As far as freezing patooties, it is unlikely thanks to all the wonderful new—not just new to us—dog jackets!

    Staff: Please check your SDD. Yeep!

  37. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:24 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Dawson!….Just how many passports will you be mailing out anyways?…sniff!…Don’t forget mine!…grunt!

  38. Macy
    5:59 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Dawson, no pictures, we want to be surprised! Thanks for doing this, we will send money shortly.

  39. Macy
    6:00 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Now to find the perfect stamp for November!

  40. dawson
    6:10 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Okay, I’m catching up on the blog and it looks like these passports are going to get some good use! WhoooHoooo to all who are going to Alaska! and whooohooo if you’re going to Texas! Plunder On, Snowhook and Have Harness, Will Iditarod!

    These are the envelopes I have addressed so far, if you are not in this list please let me know.

    Gus & BooBear
    Rio the Evil Pug
    Snowhook Bella & the Giant
    Missing addresses for the dogs in my previous post. If I don’t have your address, you are not on this list. I’m pretty sure I can get most of those addresses from either Staff, Snowhook Bella or Melanie. If you have the address of any of those, please send it asap.

    I will match CHobbit’s $40. donation to the Harness Fund. I can enclose a check in the envelope with their passport. I will email Rose and Rio so they can match me.

    Hmmmm. I wonder if my ’86 Dodge Sedan would make it up to Alaska. If Staff is going…wait! Is Mr. Staff quitting his winter job?!

  41. dawson
    6:14 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Oh! Just checked my SDD and I can officially add Mollypop’s Mom and Princess Sam to the list.

  42. Pancho & Lefty
    6:26 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Dawson: Please check your SDD.

  43. Barb & Maggie
    6:46 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    I am sure this is a dumb question, but what is the cost of the passport? I don’t think we sent any money. Please advise, and don’t berate us Rio, if that is something we should already know.

  44. dawson
    7:00 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    I now have Spencer Quinn and HOH’s addresses.

    I do not have SiberH’s altho expect it soon from Snowhook.
    Jasper! I don’t have an address for Jasper. I knew I was forgetting someone. I wonder who else I forgot?

    Barb & Maggie: Originally the passport was going to be available with a $10, donation to Snowhook. It was later decided that we wanted all Plunderers to have one and so we decided to send one to everybody and hoping that those who can make a donation do so and do not neccessarily limit the donation to $10. Well, I am sending $10. for mine.

  45. Pancho & Lefty
    7:07 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Dawson: What about KirbyT, Masquers and BSD, and BlueKat?

  46. Barb & Maggie
    7:19 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    We sent a Harness donation recently, and since we are fully retired now, we will probably limit our passport donation to $10. Thank you Double D.

    Tonight, bar-b-qued baby back ribs, and from the garden, tomato slices, baked bread crumb-periconi cheese zucchini, and green beans with bacon and onion. How does that sound BSD?

    Awesome Dawson – check your SDD.
    Rio & Rose – check your SDD.

    Hi, Everybody. Didn’t get to Alaska yet. Mom had a medical emergency, but they’re re-booked for August.

    Lurking…lurking…but sending hugs to all.

    7:27 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Dawson, Is your car really 27 years old? How many miles do you have on it?

    My brother Remy was just in a Subaru commercial in Green Bay, WI. I am related to a movie star!

  49. Wose
    7:31 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    7:47 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    We still didn’t get our Lurker pretzels:( it would be so great to have them now, because Mom can’t eat most things! Her mouth is very sore, and she can only sort of eat food that is soft and not too hot or cold. Those pretzels could be all ours in the meantime. heh!

  53. dawson
    8:01 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    I got Bluecat!

    I am going out for a cooking class. I’m late but will be back after to see who else I may’ve forgot.

    WhooooHooo! Having some fun now.

  54. Herd of Hounds
    8:27 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    Dawson: Mom once had a VW van that she has 400,000 miles on. Wish se still had it…room for the whole HOH with no probs.

  55. dawson
    8:36 pm on July 23rd, 2013

    I am late…too late to take the class but the good news is it was way too crowded anyway.

    So yes thank you Snowhook Bella, I have Bluecat’s address, and Bear’s and Masquers (I will send the passport to the Island unless I hear different – maybe at the same time I send their padfolio) so now I need Kirby’s address). I do have Jasper’s address. But not Finn Dogs.

  56. Herd of Hounds
