    They won the award!! Congratulations Mario and Christina. I'm so glad.

    Chet, regarding Col. Bob's son's case: My request would be that you begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop. (I recently saw the new Alice In Wonderland movie with Johnny Depp which surprised me by being very good.)

    HEY! They found Whitey (from the Iditarod) in good shape! Musher, Justin Savidis) and Whitey are back together in Anchorage!

    Also, the German trailer is good. I picked up a word in ten. I heard Motor oil, which was translated differently. Also, are they calling Dog On It, Bernie and Chet?

    Commander Rio, LET MOLLYPOP back IN!

    No word on the van yet. Will let you know.

    Whitey!… Glad they found that albino!… whew!… Did they check his pockets for hotel stubs and bar tabs?… snort… Where did they find him anyway?….grunt!

    Thank You, Thank you, Thank you Melanie! I came to Chet's blog this morning before I went to the Iditarod site. Big, big, sigh of relief that they found Whitey.

    I like B. Stover's suggestion about how to handle the Col. Bob

    thing. I get easily confused.

    We need Molly. She is our computer dog, and a cute girl, but that has nothing to do with the fact that we need a technical expert.

    Congratulations on winning Mario and Christina! I think it is cute and I like the Southwest colors in it.

    Rio, they found Whitey in McGrath. They think he roamed around fifty miles between two villages. It was a salmon carcass that lured him in. Whitey plans to do the Iditarod again next year. Whitey, his team, and his musher had to totally scratch from the race this year because of Whitey's vacation.

    Siber-H and Melanie!…. I’m just concerned that Molly might be too high-strung and fly off the deep end…snort!… when we need her to be calm and concentrating on her job…. Grunt!… It may all be too much pressure for her. …wheeze!… I’m just not sure…

    Whitey!… take that guy for instance!… snort!… because of his behavior, the whole team suffered… grump!

    Yeah for Whitey for coming back safe.

    Yeah for Mario and Christina.

    Boo for Rio for not recognizing that Molly would be a great asset to the team. Remember: keep your enemies close, a little knowledge of the dark side might be advisable. Plus she is a big fierce dog, can run and leap tall objects at a single bound, can be used as a sled dog in a pinch and might be needed to keep all those Newfs in line. (If that is even possible). However, if you don't want all those assets maybe you could send Mollypop over Alice J's way?

    6:56 am on March 15th, 2010

    Dawson!… All very good points!…snort!… I didn’t want to lose her in the first place…wheeze!… That Fifth Column crap was freakin’ me out last night… grump!

    Molly!… If you want to come back we would all love to have you….snort!… It’s up to you.

    Well Rio – I think this is plain and simple Poodle Discrimination.

    Just so you know, my Mom gave money to a local shelter for a dog's surgery on her broken leg. The dog will now be able to walk again and soon will be ready to be adopted. The shelter sent Mom a nice letter with a picture of the dog, Ginger the PUG. So there!

  11. dawson

    Discrimination accusations could jeopardize the whole mission. Sounds like Rio has some serious sucking up to do. Now's the time to ask for a raise in pay or benefits.


  12. Rio - The Evil Pug
    8:02 am on March 15th, 2010

    Rio!… Does not suck-up to any breed…. Snort!

  13. dawson
    8:43 am on March 15th, 2010

    Of course,

    I know that Rio, just trying to get your goat. Huh? No goat?

  14. Rio - The Evil Pug
    9:02 am on March 15th, 2010

    Dawson!… no worries and no goat!…. Grunt!

    Iditarod!… So are the teams half way through yet?… snort!… when does it get exciting?

  15. dawson
    9:51 am on March 15th, 2010


    It would be exciting by now if the Poodles were racing! Go Poodles! Even green-eyed ones (how ya doin' Jasper?)

    I just hope all the dogs stay healthy.

  16. Rio - The Evil Pug
    11:20 am on March 15th, 2010

    Mush!…. I just hope none of the others get any ideas from Whitey and abandon their teams this week!… grunt!… No More Vacations!…wheeze!

  17. Mollypop
    11:23 am on March 15th, 2010

    Cmdr. Rio – Thank you for taking me back. I was so worried that I went out rescuing Pugs all afternoon. I'm exhausted. One of the pugs had fallen through the ice. By the time I got there, a Kat had pulled him out and was doing CPR.

    I look forward to our next mission.

  18. Melanie
    11:28 am on March 15th, 2010

    Whitey's adventure does bring up an idea. Maybe Wookie can entice Aubrey out with a dead fish.

    The pack loves dead fish. Cooked: to eat. Raw: to roll in.

  19. dawson
    11:34 am on March 15th, 2010

    Formidable. Very. Raw Fish and Drool.

    11:46 am on March 15th, 2010

    Molly!… It’s an honor to have you back Agent!… snort!

    Hurray!… The Newfs know no bounds!…snort!… Their bad smell, horrible breath and all that drool is going to come in very handy!… grunt!

  21. Melanie
    12:45 pm on March 15th, 2010

    Commander Rio, Looking at the weather reports for Cape Cod you might have to rethink your mission to one of rescue!

    The winds are gusting up to 45 m/h, waves of 15 to 20 feet, downed trees and power lines.

    Maybe Admin would be so appreciative of rescue, that the briefcase would be left open?

  22. dawson
    1:07 pm on March 15th, 2010

    And yet the Newfs do like to frolic and are so carefree, joyous and "in the moment" that who really cares if they drool buckets and smell rotten.

  23. Melanie
    1:19 pm on March 15th, 2010

    Dawson: The Newfs are snoring in appreciation.

    Rio, to answer your questions about the Iditarod: It is getting really exciting now. There is an actual race going on instead of one team way out in front that you know is going to win. The winner should come into Nome sometime tomorrow afternoon (if the Iditarod fans, the ones who are better in math than I am) have figured it correctly. There are many more teams that will be arriving in the next few days. Some mushers know they won't even come close to winning. They just want to have the experience of doing the race, seeing Alaska the slow way, and spending quality time with their dogs. These teams may be 6 days away from Nome. It has been extra cold for the mushers this year, some of them may have a bit of frostbite, but the dogs are doing fine.

    I have no plans for tomorrow, except for the dog park, so I can watch the winner arrive in Nome. I wonder if I can get mom to bring my meals and snacks to the computer.

    Mel!… A good heads-up weather alert!… snort!…To tell you the truth, we are no where near ready for the mission to start!…. grunt!….Wookie has been out doing some external equipment set-up….groan!… But now with this bad-ass weather he will probably have to do it all over again!… damn!… And I know he will be in a very bad mood!… groan!.. What with March Madness on and all!….crap!… I’ll know more if he reports in about the conditions…. Grunt!

    Siber-H!… Obsession!… I love that you love something so much!… snort!… that’s what makes the world wag!… grunt!

    While we are on the subject of sled dogs, there is a sly nod to the stories of Jack London in Thereby Hangs a Tail. I just want Chet to know that it didn't get by me. I do, though, get very tense whenever Chet is in danger.

    Chet doesn't like fish. I like fish. Huskies like fish.

    Congrats!… to the German guy and gal who won the contest!… snort!… they were packing a winning team though!… gruff!… not hard to imagine them winning the contest!… wheeze!….Well deserved animation and 3D concepts!… whoooo! [ sorry, this is late congrats, but I just got to see it ]…whoooo!

    Hey everyone. Sorry I've been out of contact,but my dad has been hogging the computer a lot because of March Madness. Anyway, I was so impressed with all the offers of assistance that everyone made to help me on my various secret missions. We will make an awesome team for sure. If anyone needs to borrow the mustache, just let me know. And Melanie, the statistics on the Neufs were just incredible. I'm the biggest guy around here at just over a 100 pounds, but they have some real heft. My dad did want to know how much they eat and how much it costs to feed them. Wow! My dad also wants to know if Chet can get Spence to update his book signing schedule because we are going to Vermont early this year (first week of May) and maybe we could go to a book signing if one was to take place that week. And of course, I could sneak off to see Audrey again. One last thing –Commander Rio — my dad is a bit concerned that I may be picking up some of your habits, apparently I have started snorting a lot.

    Wookie!… Always puts on a Happy Face!… snort!… I know the whole “snorting remark” was to let me know he is not happy about the way things are going with the weather out on the Cape!…wheeze!… Especially during March Madness!… grunt!….Bless his awesome soul. Mmmmmm… Hang in there Wookie!…. relief is a comin’… groan!

    Another great trailer. I really liked the first one too. Are we going to have this one linked to our site like the first one?

    Mollypop, any time you want to come over to the dark side, I, Alice, am here and the force is with me.

    Heh heh heh.

    Anyway Rio is consumed with basketball. Has anybody looked at those basketball players lately? They are wearing skirts for goodness sake! Rio will be so kerflumoxed he won't know which way is up!

    Now is our chance!

    Yes, Alice, Alice, I will come with you. I am yours sweet Kitty. Your every wish is my command. I will order $$ of catnip for you on the computer.

  37. Siberian Husky
    3:58 pm on March 15th, 2010

    Too much Iditarod–that would be Wild Wild West up there. John Wayne probably couldn't type either.

    With the lovely fluffy tail!

    Ready to leap tall buildings at a single bound.

    Or, perhaps, stretch across the bed and sneak out west.

    Look out now. Mollypop is mine!
