    My heart has been hurting since the news of Patsy’s passing. My love, hugs, and prayers are with Melanie and Zoe, and the rest of the Pack always.

    T&G, your pantaloons look beautiful!

    Kat, did you get some snow?

    Bear and Masquers, tornadoes in Washington state?

    Bella, make sure you take your feel better in no time pills. Hope you are feeling tip-top soon!

    Taxes are being done today. I hear the “Jaws” theme song playing in the distance.

    Good morning. Love the picture. Gus is here for the week, but no snow today. We could get 2-4″ tomorrow, than Gus could look like that. He loves to lay out in the snow.

    Heard Denver has 6″ of the white stuff today. Protect those underbits, Rio and Beau! Maybe you can get out of the brutal walk at least.

    Ah Newport RI…such a tragedy that OFA has to go to such a place. Oceans and waves and seafood and mansions. Yup, he surely sacrifices for his art.

    I love that picture of Patsy.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning all,

    Thank you for all your thoughts, prayers and virtual hugs. They have been much appreciated.

    That is my favorite picture of Patsy. She had just been playing like made with the Pack and when I took the camera out she did her Noble pose.

    She was my companion, my goof ball, and even though she had cancer for the last years, she was my Angel when it came to getting through The Raven’s decline and Zoë’s fall and recovery.

    I’ll be lurking for awhile. I will slowly be answering the SDD messages that Zoë and I received.

    You guys? Don’t get bogged down in this, Plunder On, and have fun.

    Love that picture of Patsy! Thank you, Spence. Mom knows what it is like to miss a dog that sleeps beside you on the bed all night for years. We are sad for Melanie. It is hard.

    I hope Rio isn’t snowed in. While Rio gets snow, we are going to have blowing sand later in the day from the same weather system.

    Good Morning All

    A Beautiful Photo of River Bear Patsy.

    Melanie: You know you, Zoe and the Pack are in our Plunderer thoughts and prayers always.
    Lurk as long as need be.
    We Love You.

    Wose: Yikes! Tornadoes? We have not heard of this.
    WeatherKat has obviously been falling down on the job.
    Looks like our Pug friend is covered in Snow this morning. He and Beau will not be pleased.

    I’ve always wanted to visit Rhode Island (and the Eastern Seaboard).

    10:31 am on March 23rd, 2013

    DOUBLE GRUMP!….Here is someone’s mother contemplating the storm which is supposed to hang around all weekend for pity’s sake…grumble!…Beau is mad above because he cannot (will not) go out to his little tree to pee…heh!

  16. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:34 am on March 23rd, 2013

    Dawson!….Someone here wants to take a tour of New England this Fall – do you want to go with her?…chorkel!…You guys could alway camp out at Spencer’s house or even Golinkas when you hit MA…snort!

  17. Barb & Maggie
    10:50 am on March 23rd, 2013

    New England in the fall is breathtaking! Go for it.

    Barb is the only person who still wants snow. I think it is because she missed part of winter being self absorbed with her surgery, making it seem like a really short winter. One more week she says, then spring can arrive.

    Barb and Maggie,
    Spencer Quinn said on his facebookie site that he hopes to go back to Chi-town on a tour for the Sound and the Furry book.

    This is a great article about the Yukon Quest.

    Our snow totals are 2 feet for the last 7 days and 185 inches for the season which started very late. I’m still miffed about the dog sled races that had to be canceled. We could do that now. We could run the Iditarod now!

  21. Macy the min-pin
    11:10 am on March 23rd, 2013

    Nope, Barb is not the only one who still wants snow. We join Mr. Husky in that club, too.

    {{{HUGS}}} Melanie and Zoe. Patsy stayed around as long as she did to help you through those rough times. Good Dog, Patsy, Good Dog.

  22. Herd of Hounds
    11:20 am on March 23rd, 2013

    Beau & Rio, at first Mom thought she’d find Beau like a little gnome in your first foto, then she realized THAT snow would be over your wazoos!

  23. dawson
    11:26 am on March 23rd, 2013

    I would love to see New England in all its (no apostrophe!) Fall splendor.

  24. Basil and Sage
    11:29 am on March 23rd, 2013

    Barb – SELF ABSORBED??!?!?!? You had major surgery, woman! You are ENTITLED to be self-absorbed. And you weren’t anyway. You would never make a good Wrotten Kat – you think way too much of other people.

    Can youse guys imagine Dawson and Rio taking New England by storm? It will never be the same.

  25. Masquers
    11:33 am on March 23rd, 2013

    We would love for Riö to take a vacation…any vacation that is fun and relaxing.

    As for the snow…we can’t beat your six inches, Beau.
    We only had three.

  26. Barb & Maggie
    11:47 am on March 23rd, 2013

    Thank you for those kind words, and thank you Staff for the heads up. We were thinking that Spence might be more likely to come to Chi-town, since his son is living and working here. One extra reason to stop here. If anyone wants to drive in for his talk, we have an extra bedroom.

    Also, Barb reached out thru SDD to several Plunderers who she thought might be the one to be in charge of her flower ordering when she was in the hospital. No one claims responsibility, but you can still come forward if you wish. Whoever ordered them did such a perfect job with the chicken balloon and the chicken coffee cup that she was just thrilled. And the flowers, of course, were so beautiful that all the nurses commented on them. Anywho, we just wanted you, whoever you are, to know how much you were appreciated.

  27. dawson
    11:49 am on March 23rd, 2013

    Reunion sites for Plunderers:
    Massachusetts because I want to see the East Coast.
    New Mexico because I want to see the desert.
    Camano Island because I have a thing for islands.
    Alaska because I love the North.

    Can there be a reunion if we’ve never met?

  28. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:57 am on March 23rd, 2013

    Bedrooms!…Hey, since there are so many extra bedrooms available, and a little cabin in Alaska, maybe me and my friend won’t have to pay for vacation…snort!…We can just live off our friends till they kick us out and then move onto the next available bedroom…heh!heh!…I like it!

  29. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:00 pm on March 23rd, 2013

    Inventory!….Someone here just finished going through all her colored paper to find out what she really has…sniff!… Apparently there are a lot of colors that do not get used and none of the colors that always get used…grunt!…How does that happen? She has absolutely NO RED left…yeep!…So a big order has just been placed for all the missing colors…gah!

  30. Barb & Maggie
    12:01 pm on March 23rd, 2013

    Dawson, You didn’t list us as a reunion site, but you can add us if you like. There is lots to see in Chi-town, and we are really close to Wisconsin too!

  31. Herd of Hounds
    12:08 pm on March 23rd, 2013

    We may be newfBies, but Chattanooga is a glorious destination with a couple of spare rooms, a herd of hounds and a peck of parrots.

    12:26 pm on March 23rd, 2013

    Staff, Thanks for the link. That is a good article and photos on the Quest.

    Dawson, You are always welcome to come visit NM. We are thankful we have nice scenery and mountains here, but the most beautiful desert in the world is southeastern Utah…extending a little ways into Arizona.

    Phooey. Another blustery, wintery, snowy day here. Oh wait, I live in the arctic, winter is 9 months long. ((((sigh))))

    Next year I’ll be fully retired and hope to get my travelling shoes on.

    The packing goes on at my house–ugh. And this is just putting stuff in storage so I can list it for sale. Really need to try and wrap it up this week so I can meet with a realtor.

  34. OleyHowlers
    12:43 pm on March 23rd, 2013

    Awwww we love that picture of Patsy. Good to hear from Melanie, who along with Zoe, must be the strongest women we know.

    We here have BIG NEWS. But youse better sit down before reading further. The ‘rents just returned from the Feed and youse will never ever believe what they ordered while there: CHICKIES !!!!! Yup, we here are going to have our very own chickens. yummm, we can taste it already. heh heh he

    The best (or funniest) part of all of this is that Mom & Pop say that critters like foxes and raccoons will come by to try to steal our chickens, and (this is going to blow you away) WE HUSKIES will protect the chickens.
    (whispering) We say that raccons and foxes are great to do battle with, and then there will be chicken treats for rewards. heh heh heh

    Something else intriguing happened today. A horse dentist came by. The old one retired, so this is a new guy. He had tattoos all over every inch of skin we could see, and piercings in places we can’t imagine. But those horses loved him! They were like butter in his hands. Unbelievable.

    Please keep YSAS in your thoughts for this weekend. He is up for the lead in an Indie film. It would not be one that we would put on our Netflix list, but it would be great for him. Not much money, but the LEAD.

    Thanks . .

    1:14 pm on March 23rd, 2013

    You betcha, Melanie. Good thoughts for YSAS…The Lead!!!

    Howlers, Your post is one of the funniest things I have read in a long time. CHICKENS!!
    Oh Dawg, I am still laughing.

  40. dawson
    1:21 pm on March 23rd, 2013

    We could meet at a Tigers (I want to put in an apostrophe) game!
    Oh…wait, I forgot.
    I’ve given up on professional sports.
    But I could take one for the team!

    Barb&Maggie: How far from Chicago are you?

    Great picture of our precious Patsy and good thoughts galore for YSAS.

    And a grammarian link of sorts for B. Stover in particular, for “whom” it should be quite meaningful and maybe even fun.

    Yes! YSAS for the Lead! This Weekend!

    ummm I thought an apostrophe would go in Tigers’ game.
    Does this mean I no long type Rockies’ game? It is really Rockies game?

    Macy, I don’t have an RV, but there is one the size of a bus setting in the driveway just two houses away. Those folks aren’t using it.

  52. B. Stover

    Regarding “whom”: Usage is everything. I’ve said that before.

    Regarding Tigers game: You’re using “Tigers” as an adjective instead of “baseball” so you don’t need a possessive apostrophe. If you said, “The Tigers’ winning streak…” you would need an apostrophe.

  53. BearSpiritDog
    2:00 pm on March 23rd, 2013

  54. B. Stover

    I’ll expand on the “usage is everything” remark: Since English is not a dead language, it is changing which means “rules” change.

    Barb, Siber’s answer is probably the most accurate. LOL
    Mom says these chickens have names, and they are: Americauna, Buff Orpington, Rhode Island Red, and Barred Rock, but we are going to call them all “Delish” for short.

  75. BearSpiritDog
    4:03 pm on March 23rd, 2013

    Oh, oh. Sibers in the Hen House. Watch out little chickies!

    Bear, you got that right. Our jobs will be to guard our food Chickens.

  79. Basil and Sage
    4:50 pm on March 23rd, 2013

    Oh, this is gonna be good. We remember Siber’s recipe for chicken, and we remember the Howlers thinking it sounded mighty good.

    And what is so funny about “codswallop”? We use that around here quite a bit. Gramp is well known for proclaiming things to be a load of codswallop. And no one looks at him funny when he does.

    New Englanders tend to more colorful and colloquial swear words.

    In short…no more emBEARassment.

  81. Barb & Maggie
    5:10 pm on March 23rd, 2013

    Oleys, Barb had all of those breeds. Assume you ought “straight run” and will be keeping the hens for eggs. You will get some nice brown eggs and even green from the Americaunas. Those are all easy going, calm breeds and will make a nice flock. They need to be kept under a heat lamp for a few weeks, but you probably know that. The chickens are what Barb misses the most from the farm. Oh, and keep at least one roo, they watch out for their ladies. However he will be no match for a pack of Sibes. So glad you didn’t buy the cornish rock fast growing hybrids that commercial growers raise. Did anyone know that the “cornish hens” you can buy at the store are really 4 week old chickens? That is how fast those little suckers grow.

  82. Barb & Maggie

    Wow! Chickens! Can’t you call them Pot Pie, ‘N noodles, caccitore, Noodle soup? BSW, sometimes we wish there were an “unsend” button when paw in mouth is a problem.
    Theatre, double wow (wow). We enjoy that…amature (sometimes) and professional.

    Patsy was always the master of disguise. All we see in that photo is snow covered in black fur. We here are trying to focus on the positive. Melanie had several extra months with her best girl, Patsy. That was a surprise. Patsy was with Melanie through all the struggles this year. What a blessing that Patsy took her job seriously and saw it through to the end. And, we know Patsy will never stray far from her charge. All of these things are good things.

    As I mentioned a couple of days ago, my Lady finally went to the vet for her back. Instead of getting better like it usually does, it was getting worse. He gave her some very strong—very strong— feeling-good-in-no-time pills and she has had a difficult time functioning after taking just one pill. Yesterday morning she put lotion on her toothbrush instead of toothpaste. Good things she noticed before she started brushing. Yeep!

  89. Masquers

    Masquers: The very same pills, yes. Only this time, the giraffe brought friends.

    Rio: I would not forget you, I promise. Things went into the mail on different days. Hopefully by the end of next week many of you will have received little momentos in the mail compliments of the Iditarod. There were a couple of addresses I couldn’t find so apologies.

    I bought a ton of stuff in Nome that will go nicely in our next auction or mercantile. I put on my newly-discovered evil pug persona while in Nome and tried to find things that youse will pay $ for.

    Rebecca: can you wear a back brace of some sort that will keep you from moving in the wrong direction? Here is some advice a friend gives pregnant women facing childbirth, “take the drugs and ask for more.” I figure pain is pain and this might work for you. I think being pain free helps with healing.

    Mama has learned a very important lesson today. She learned that it is better to do grocery shopping when she should do it, rather than wait until there was next to nothing left in the house, and then be forced to go to the grocery store on a Saturday afternoon.
    There was no margarine, butter, eggs, potatoes, onions, milk, rice, bread or fresh fruit or veggies. She tried and tried to figure out how to put a dinner together without any of the basic elements. Finally gave in to the inevitable, and went.
    TWO AND A HALF HOURS LATER – as she was coming home, she made a resolution to not let this happen again!
    Then Gramp offered to go get fish and chips for dinner. As grateful as she was, she kind of wished that he had made that offer BEFORE she set foot in that melee of coupon-clutching, baby-cart-wielding, bargain-hunting, “I-saw-it-first” , “do I have to buy all 6 to get the discount”, cart-banging, over caffeinated mob.
    And after all that – she forgot the eggs.
    Idiot….

    Gah. How did a double Dawson happen? I thought double entries were blocked. Phooey. Well, I guess what is worth saying once is worth saying twice.

    Whiner!… My friend has to go to the damned, very damned, grocery store every weekend because someone who sits home all day long will not go through the week when there are far less coupon-clutching, baby-cart-wielding, bargain-hunting, “I-saw-it-first” , “do I have to buy all 6 to get the discount”, cart-banging, over caffeinated mobs in the aisles…sniff!…Today she had to drive in a blizzard to get all that white food they were out of…grump!

    Mom said she had to be a trekkie. Her high school physics teacher was so bad, he wanted them to prove warp drive possible. We think it should be woof drive.
