Hard to tell from this article. Maybe Chet and Bernie readers know something about this.

Welcome Chulo. And here he is:

Hi, Chet, my name is Chulo. How\'d you get so brave?

    How many brands of jerky treats are there? Are there any made in America? Given the numbers, it’s strange that the matter hasn’t been resolved.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning, everyone! We have never used jerky treats or chews, mom fears choking (not the issue, we know). What do the Chinese use as treats for their dogs?
    Know it will probably be a woebegone Wednesday here but let’s do our best to whip up pawsitive energy.

  3. Barb & Maggie
    8:55 am on November 13th, 2013

    Barb threw out the jerky treat we had. They were from Trader Joe’s and the package stated made in the USA, but they are gone anyway. Not taking chances.

    Thinking about Zoe and Melanie this morning.

    Pancho and Lefty, We read your post from last night. You are very persuasive!

  5. Pancho & Lefty
    9:31 am on November 13th, 2013

    B&M: You have no idea just how persuasive we can be. Wait until you meet us in person. No one can resist our look of innocence combined with equal parts head tilt and tail wag.

    We are thinking of the two and four legged members of the Newf Pack today.

  6. O'Howlers
    9:37 am on November 13th, 2013

    Morning to all!
    Mom only threw out the jerkey treats from China. Pop made us our own, with their great beef that they have tons of in the freezer. They still give us Beggin’ Strips though, and they kept another one: Blue Stix from Blue Buffalo. That is a reputable company and they are made in the U.S.
    Nowadays, our treat of choice is turkey slices! The doc recommended turkey for Dima, and what Dima eats, his sisters eat!

    Thinking of Melanie, Zoe, Grace, and the rest of The Pack.

    Also thinking of Nana, who has not responded to FB posts lately.

    Hello to Chulo….he is a cutie!
    Bella, Please check your SDD when you are able.

    Morning all.
    Ummm – Mama buys jerky for two leggeds and gives that to us. She just gets plain, unflavored type, although we would prefer teriyaki. And we don’t get it as often as we like – oh no we do not.

    Could one of you facebookie types check with Scott and see if Nana is ok?

    Melanie and Zoe, Sending loving thoughts your way.

    I am very worrit about our Nana.

    B&M, You just have to go to Alaska! It is an experience Grizz and I will never forget. You will get to meet the Snowhook dogs, who are the bestest dogs ever. That Pancho and Lefty, they will certainly charm the gloves off you.

    CHobbit, I love the Hobbit Hotel sign!

    Wolfie, Thinking of you.

    Kirby’s Mom, Glad to see your post,

    Errrrr, Does anyone know where Jasper from the middle of the mitten is?

  10. Barb & Maggie
    10:09 am on November 13th, 2013

    Several we have wondered about: Wolfie, Jasper, ABP from Calif., Terri, and of course Nana.

  11. B. Stover
    10:30 am on November 13th, 2013

    Jasper’s friend posts on Facebook all the time.

  12. O'Howlers
    10:43 am on November 13th, 2013

    Mom sent Scott a message. She will let us know when she hears from him, and we will let youse know.

  13. Tupper and Gilly
    10:57 am on November 13th, 2013

    Thanks Howlers – Your Mom is the best!

  14. Siber-H
    10:58 am on November 13th, 2013

    Mom’s thoughts on the jerky treats: Do not give your dog anything that is made in China…food or toys. The same goes for human baby formula.

    Like Sharon, Mom has never given dogs jerky treats and mom agrees with Sharon about the choking issue. There are products sold on the market for dogs that they can choke on.

    While I am posting mom’s gloomy thoughts, I will add that some dogs have gotten gut blockage from eating rawhide chews.

  15. Wose
    11:00 am on November 13th, 2013

    Thanks, Howlers!

    No Facebookie here….. I miss Jasper on this here blog.

  16. Siber-H
    11:01 am on November 13th, 2013

    My Fellow Sibers, Thank your mom from us. Mom and I have also been thinking about Nana.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Gracie, Melanie, and Zoe today.

  17. Kat
    11:03 am on November 13th, 2013

    Siber, I sure hope my mommy never meets your mommy. Where would I be without Pop’s beef jerkey, yummy chummies, beggin strips, and oh yes! Spray Cheese Cookies!

  18. Dima
    11:07 am on November 13th, 2013

    Several weeks ago, Mom shared this idea with Melanie who shared it with Zoe:
    On New Years Eve, Mom and Pop plan to write each bad thing that has happened to our family this year on a piece of scrap paper. There will be a lot of scrap papers here, and at Melanie’s. Then one by one, they are going to put each piece of scrap paper into the fire (fire pit, or wood stove, depending on weather). They will drink a toast after each to put the bad finally to bed.
    Perhaps this may help some of you guys as well. It has been a sad year for lots of us.

  19. Herd of Hounds
    11:16 am on November 13th, 2013

    Melanie, Zoe, Newf Pack and all our friends on the blog, our mom feels the need to post this now:

    Creator of all things,
    Thank you for having entrusted
    With us a loyal Friend.
    Thank you for letting her teach us
    Unselfish love.
    Thank you for the memories that we may
    Recall to help brighten our days
    For the rest of our lives.
    Finally, in gratitude,
    We return our friend,
    Amazing Grace,
    To you.

  20. Dima
    11:20 am on November 13th, 2013

    Amen. Thank you, HOH.

  21. Pancho & Lefty
    11:29 am on November 13th, 2013


    Howlers: SDD received. Thank you.

    Wose: We like the word charm to describe us. We will add it to our business cards along with miscreants.

  22. Pancho & Lefty
    11:34 am on November 13th, 2013

    We received a SDD two days ago from Nana. Our Lady told her we rose to the challenge if Nana Smooching duty for a short while. Nana thanked us for our service.

    Facebookie!…Looks like Spencer received all those Titles I have been submitting…heh!heh!…And he actually likes some of them…woooo!

  24. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:39 am on November 13th, 2013

    Grace!…I am pondering over Zoe and Melanie this morning…sniffle!… I wish I could give them each a big sloppy, slurpy pug kiss-a-roo…snuffle!

  25. Barb & Maggie
    11:43 am on November 13th, 2013

    Amen and peace to you Grace.

  26. Barb & Maggie
    11:45 am on November 13th, 2013

    Rio, We clicked on the F.B. link but didn’t see any titles listed. Where did you see yours?

  27. dawson
    11:47 am on November 13th, 2013

    Amen. Thank you for the prayer.

    Dima: That seems an excellent idea to end this year and bring in the new year.

    The Unalakleet Iditarod site a few days ago:

  28. dawson
    11:50 am on November 13th, 2013

    That link did not work. The Unalakleet site is a lake right now.

  29. Tupper and Gilly
    11:52 am on November 13th, 2013

    HOH – thank you – that was lovely. And we know she is resting gently now.

    Mama says if we follow the New Year’s idea, there will be a large number of fire departments responding to an alarm at our house.

    But the Storyteller is walking, so maybe that cancels out the other stuff.

  30. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:06 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Barb!…He did not post the Titles on facebookie, he just said he was finally looking at them and liked them…sniff!…I assume he meant mine. Who else?…heh!heh!

  31. Dima
    12:07 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Nana!!!! Nana answered my facebook post of Monday’s. I had Mom ask her when she is breaking out, and she just now said “soon, I hope”. Then she added “The blogkats (& dawgs) are on standby awaiting word. ^..^” !!!!
    We are very happy to hear from her!

    ummmm, Rio? I believe Spence was referring to my titles. heh!

  32. Siber-H
    12:09 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Amen and Thank You HOH.

    I think it is a good idea to burn up all the bad things that happened, but at the same time I would make a list of all the things to be thankful for in the past year and keep that list.

  33. Macy the min-pin
    12:14 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Amen and peace

  34. Dima
    12:37 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Siber, Mom said that if I spend New Years Eve with her, she will have one good thing that will override all the bad stuff. I’m not sure what that means, but it sounds good.

  35. Siber-H
    12:51 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Dima, That would make my mom happy also…for you to spend New Year’s Eve with your mom.

  36. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:55 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Title!…I’m pretty sure one of my many amazing Titles will win, but if for some reason one doesn’t, I sure hope one of us plunderers wins it this year…wheeze!

  37. Wose
    12:59 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Amen. Peace be with you.

  38. Wose

  39. Barb & Maggie
    1:03 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Dima, we are rooting for you to spend New Year’s Eve with your mom and dad.

    Rio, Oh.

  40. Wose
    1:06 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Why Am I being moderated ?

    I did not say any bad words. Just that Pancho and Lefty should have their card say: Charming procurement specialists.

    Procurement is not a bad word.

    What a day for travel. Our lady is one stop away from her destination. Each leg of her trip has been delayed because of weather. Yeep! And just for our favorite tan pug, she will be taking some airborne tonight.

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:38 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Airborn!….It is about DawgDang time!…grunt!

  45. Tupper and Gilly
    3:42 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Rio – we hate to tell you, but Melanie shared her title idea with us, and we are sure that she is the winner.

    Dima – you ain’t goin’ nowhere, bud. Unless if course you are blurring off to Alaska to pull a sled.

    3:54 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Chulo looks like a happy handful of a dog.

    Roads might be worse today. I only went out today for an appointment and to stock up on dog food. Yesterday an out-of-control truck missed me by a couple of inches so I am not keen on driving. It always seems like it is the pickup trucks that are going too fast and getting into trouble. Today two were weaving in and out of traffic while everyone else were being careful.

    It will either rain or sleet tomorrow according to the forecast. In Fairbanks the schools are closed today due to rain on top of icy roads. Weird weather.

    4:44 pm on November 13th, 2013

    HOH- amen and thanks for your prayer. Thoughts with Grace, the Pack, Melanie and Zoe.

    We got an email from Nana, who hopes to be out soon. 🙂 We sent her a leaf from our Sunset Red maple tree.

    Terrific idea for a New Year’s Eve ritual of fire and ice (toasts). Is it too early to put up Christmas decorations, to move things along?

  48. Herd of Hounds
    4:45 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Weird for 2 leggers, good for dogs! get the sled…waaaah hoooo!

  49. Herd of Hounds

    Our folks got married the Saturday after T-Day so our thought is : No Christmas until at least the day after T-day

  50. Barb & Maggie
    4:54 pm on November 13th, 2013

    We like the title Fire and Ice for our New Year’s toast. Good one Bluecat!

    Sounds like Nana is doing well. Happy to hear that.

    Barb is heading down to Texas Friday morning for the Wedding of the Year. Will be carrying the Passport along for the visit with Plunderers Saturday morning. She will let you Texas gals pick the meeting place. Still need to get the cell # to Boobear.

  51. Dima
    5:00 pm on November 13th, 2013

    T&G, I (hardly) never get to go anywhere. Mom probably means she may have to travel.

    Bluecat, Thanks for the Nana update…that was nice of you to mail her that red leaf. And Fire and Ice sounds great!

  52. BooBear
    5:04 pm on November 13th, 2013

  60. Pancho & Lefty
    6:27 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Never made it! Our Lady has spent eight consecutive hours on a plane today and never left the state. They couldn’t land at the top of the world. They tried to land twice with no luck. We are waiting along with the Giant about her change of plans.

    Sadiebear: get thee to the vet!

  61. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:29 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Rebecca!….Come Home!….wheeze!

  62. O'Howlers
    6:38 pm on November 13th, 2013

    What else can go wrong? You had to ask. We found out that the FDA has put a minimum 2-year delay on a drug that has been studied for Duchenne disease. My cousin’s son has DMD, and they fought like hell to get him into that study. The drug has been effective in not just stabilizing the disease, but in improvements as well. These boys do not have 2 years to wait. Two years ago Aidan could walk, and eat by himself, and roll over in bed. Now he cannot do any of that. Where will he be in 2 years? We are sitting here feeling helpless. The FDA does nothing to keep us safe, but they step in to eliminate this family’s, and others like them, hope.

    Sorry. But you asked.

  63. Herd of Hounds
    6:45 pm on November 13th, 2013

    OH: Sorry to say this but the FDA is in business to make $$$ for pharmacutical companies. Find out if the drug can be gotten in Canada or Mexico. It is sometimes possible. Y’all are also in our pawrayers 🙁

  64. Pancho & Lefty
    7:14 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Yeep! our lady is boarding another flight.

  65. O'Howlers

    Thanks, HOH.
    Also, thank you, Hobbit, for sending that email to the FDA.

    Pancho and Lefty, Can the Giant saddle up some of youse and start a search party?

  68. Tupper and Gilly
    7:34 pm on November 13th, 2013

    CHobbit – yes, please do let us know about your Sadie Bear – we will be up late, so Alaska time won’t be a problem.

    Howlers – Aiden will be in our prayers

    Bella – couldn’t you be happy with some nice, safe little job like, oh I don’t know, maybe bomb defusing? Building imploding?
    Tightrope walker? Just something that didn’t mean flying around the Arctic circle in a puddle jumper.


  69. Melanie
    7:34 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Good to hear about Nana.

    Thank you all for the drooly little kisses, the big slobbery kisses, head bumps and the prayer.

    Safe travels for SnowBella. Safe peeing for Sadie.

    O’Howlers, any studies going on at any of the big hospitals near you?

    I’m for bed.

  70. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:36 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Howlers!…I was actually asking CHobbit what else could go wrong for her, but it’s always nice to know what is bugging youse guys too…sniffle!…When you let the Government take care of anything that includes your health and well being you will always get burned, sad to say….grumble!

  71. dawson
    7:44 pm on November 13th, 2013

    CHobbit: It’s good you were able to get a v e t appointment but drive carefully on those roads.

    O’Howlers: That is heartbreaking news for this boy and others that were helped by this drug.

    Snow, snow, snow. We now have about 4 inches on the ground.

    9:23 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Rio, the HOH is pretty sure that the FDA and human drs. call any disease they are unsure of: CANCER. Autoimmune diseases, whether like lupus, aids or cancer are a mystery to those who “practice” medicine. Let’s hope they quit practicing soon and get it right!

  86. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:30 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Doctors!…Phooey!…I am not holding my breath. My friend has had way too many bad doctors and now is down to one who she sees once a year because she has to…sniff!burp!

    9:31 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Update: nothing alarming showed up in the ultrasound of Sadie’s bladder. A urinalysis is being done and the results should come to me tomorrow afternoon. In the meantime, she has been put on 14 days of Clavamox. She is still the same happy Sadie so if it is a urinary tract infection, it is in the early stages. Thank goodness for the snow or I might have not noticed the red urine.

  88. Herd of Hounds
    9:34 pm on November 13th, 2013

    Finally, Rio, something we agree upon…crummy drs. Remember, 90% of the drs didn’t graduate in the top 10% of their class.

    9:51 pm on November 13th, 2013

    HOH: yes, stay-at-home moms often catch on to things happening a day or two before more serious symptoms occur.

    After Spencer picks the winning title, we ought to reveal some of the non-winning ones sent in (that sounds better than losing titles)

    P.S. I had picked up a mess that Sadie made during our walk (like I usually do). Instead of throwing it away I wrapped it and put it in the refrigerator to take to the vet in case it was needed. Of course, I forgot to take it with me. So it is still in the refrigerator in case it is needed tomorrow.

    Now what am I going to have for dinner tonight…

    This was not the day I planned. I was able to get rebooked on a flight that was set to leave this afternoon. They put us on a different plane. At the time no on knew why we had to change aircraft. We boarded the new plan, got all settled in and then the pilot spoke. “Well, folks, we understand it’s been a long day for many of you, but we’re going to cancel the flight due to weather. We repeat, the flight is cancelled.” Gah! I am now rebooked for tomorrow’s flight.

    CHH: Good catch!

    Nana is making a break for it! Woo and hoo!

    Rio: I am staying at a hotel in Anchorage. My flight leaves at the crack of dark tomorrow morning. I’m not even certain that we will fly tomorrow. From what an airline worker said, the ice damaged our original aircraft and they didn’t want to risk it happening again—this explains the strange sounds on the plane today. Plus, visibility was poor on the ground. We couldn’t land earlier today because they couldn’t get a visiual on the runway. If it doesn’t fly tomorrow, I’m calling it a week and heading home.

    Spencer braved flooding when he was in your neck of the woods. I wonder if he makes it a point to back water wings now when he is on tour.

    CHobbit: Sadie didn’t eat a bunch of beets did she? Glad her tests showed okay so far.
    I’m not too hungry after learning what’s in your fridge.

    Spencer!….Word on the street is he almost drowned once…gasp!…Water wings should be a an important thing for him to emphasize during his tour-talks, especially while he is here in the West during a 100 year flood…gurgle!

    We’ve heard a lot about jerky treat issues. To be honest, I stopped feeding them to my dogs years ago because they were messy and stinky and (most importantly) they would often cause digestive issues. Now it’s just a weekly raw meaty bone for Dex to gnaw on.

    OMG, my Macey was choking on a dog treat. We thought she was going to die. I rushed her to the vet only to find out they were closed. She was choking for 50 minutes. I looked up on the internet another animal hospital. I rushed her there and they immediately put her on oxygen. I was a in tears. I stayed for an hour and they said they would call after a bunch of tests. They just called. After putting Macey out and going in surgically, they got it out of her throat. Hopefully she will be OK. I have to call at 4:00 to see how she is doing. So thankful. That sure was an expensive treat. Almost $1500 hospital bill. All because of #traderjoes dog Jerky! WOW. Beware, keep this Trader Joe dog treat away from small dog’s. #choking #dogschoking #dogtreats #traderjoedogtreats ????❤????❤????❤
