    Good morning, everyone! Crosby is one lucky dog! Whoo hoo, cooling off here, thank Dawg :) So much happened after we went to bed.
    Again thank Dawg that Golinka and the Storyteller are home safely. Holly is still in our thoughts. Hobbit needs to stay dry and healthy. So many are doing the holiday celebration on a day other than the 25th, do it safely.
    It should be a miraculous Monday.

    Good morning. Crosby was lucky indeed.

    Wonder if Amalia and The Storyteller had a good sale day yesterday.

    Went back and saw some great pictures from last night. We still think there are only 3 pups in that picture, and only the one on the right is looking at the camera.

    Great pictures of AJ and the team on that beautiful trail.

    Talked to bro in Cary, N.C. last night. They had to turn on the a.c. since it was almost 80 degrees yesterday. Kay said she was sweating while wrapping gifts. Here it is in the mid teens with wind chills close to 0.

    Wonder if Crosby was walking on her own. I’m glad she’s safe.

    Good morning all.

    PUPPIES! We love puppies here at Riverbear.
    Can’t wait until they find their names.

    Crosby is a lucky dog. Years back when we had more of a river behind the house year round, our neighbor’s golden fell through the ice. He rescued him on his own. The river is down a bank and he didn’t want to leave Monty. Our neighbor got flat and inched out on the ice. He was able to grab Monty’s collar and slowly get him back on the thicker ice.

    Our neighbor is retired and has a heart condition. Jeeze Louise, we all will do anything for our dogs and Kats.

    The puppies are cute. “A day in the life…” looks exhausting to me. Thank you for the pictures Rebecca and AJ.

    Boy, youse were busy last nite.
    Alistair…another KatDog like moi in FOC.
    Firefighters again save the day…glad Crosby is okay.
    More puppies! Love the little guy on AJ’s left with the kool eyebrows.

    Question: Does anyone know how to transfer an ebook from one Kindle to another? It was mistakenly downloaded to the wrong one.

  10. Melanie
    9:58 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Thank you, B. Stover. and thanks, AJ. Somehow missed those pictures this morning.

    OTAS and GLAD are leaving today. :(

    They just have to figure out how to put a giant 3′ x 5′ framed painting in their car.
    snicker.

    10:02 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Good morning. Lucky Crosby. Where was his person? It doesn’t sound like he was there, since the firefighters had to warm him before taking him to his person.

    AJ’s pictures were great, but mom says when she goes way up north, she is NOT SHOVELING THE ROOF. Heh!

  12. O'Howlers
    10:05 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Masquers, Alistair looks like one kool kat dog.
    To transfer from one kindle to another, they must both be on the same account with Amazon. So then on the one where you want it, look at your archives and it will be there.

  13. Masquers
    10:11 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Thanks for the Kindle info, Howlers. I checked the archives on the device, but it’s not there…probably needs to be fully charged…which is being done now.

    Greetings!

    Puppies at Snowhook! Orion and Bonnie…such good dogs and parents! Wooohoooo! There is nothing better than holding a little puppy and puppy breath.
    It was hard to see how many puppies were in the picture since the pups are already wearing team colors! Great pictures , AJ! Lots of snow there too!

  15. Wose
    10:37 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Belle Starr, are you there? (Whispering) Maybe we can get one of those puppies the Giant was holding for you….

  16. Wose
    10:48 am on December 23rd, 2013

    HOH: Youse made me start wondering about Teddy’s picture, so I looked at a bigger view. At the time, both of TRR’s ears were in their proper places, one on each side of his head. (His ear are very soft!). My hand was stroking TRR’s ear. That arm is also the arm where I wear my watch, and LIVESTRONG bracelet, which if you enlarge the picture can be seen., and then a little bit more of my arm.
    Because I was kind of kneeling, most of knee and left foot are hidden behind Teddy. Whew! I’m sure you are now more confused than before. I know I am.

  17. Melanie
    10:52 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Okay, I messed with some stuff with AJ and Puppies picture. I see 4 pups.

    Let’s see if it translates back on the blog.

  18. Staff
    10:53 am on December 23rd, 2013

    The pictures at the end of yesterdays post made me wonder how AJ’s ribs are feeling.

  19. BearSpiritDog
    11:05 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Squinting here but still only Seeing Three.

    AJ & C.Hobbit: Snow Shovelers Extraordinaire.
    C.Hobbit: How is the snow accumulation at the North Pole?

  20. Barb & Maggie
    11:07 am on December 23rd, 2013

    I still see just 3. The one is crosswise, with his whole body showing and his head facing our left. He is in front of the one facing our right. The third is on our right looking straight forward. Where is the fourth?

  21. B. Stover
    11:07 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Masquers: Go to your library on Amazon. Find the title you want to transfer to another Kindle; click on the “action” button to the right next to each item listed; then click on the “deliver to my” button and download to the correct Kindle.

  22. Melanie
    11:12 am on December 23rd, 2013

    The fourth puppy is right up against AJ. Can’t see anything but his body. Head to our right.

  23. Belle Starr
    11:15 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Wose: There is a little black bear cub that I have called for my own, but Bonnie doesn’t see it my way. Maybe you could make her see reason.

    Full rack of ribs! I can report that the Giant was on the mend, but then he rolled the snow machine on him a couple of weeks ago. We here at the kennel think he didn’t just crack one rib, but broke a couple. He denies it like an Theif denying, well, anything.

  24. Junior
    11:20 am on December 23rd, 2013

    I have been led to believe this bear cub has eyebrows like me, but I don’t see them. I hope the pup hasn’t misplaced them already.

  25. Siber-H
    11:35 am on December 23rd, 2013

    A big Thank you and hugs to the firefighters that rescued Crosby.

    AJ, Enjoyed last nights pictures. I cannot believe all the snow, but I am worried about C.Hobbit and all that shoveling.

    Nice claws on the little pup…bear cub claws.

    Pancho and Lefty, Sure, I will put in a good word for you with Santa. He’ll believe me.

  26. Herd of Hounds
    11:35 am on December 23rd, 2013

    WE can count 2 twice in the pup fotos.
    Junior, when that little one grows into his/her paws…almost newf size!

  27. BearSpiritDog
    11:37 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Junior: Same Eyebrows as you! He’s my Favorite. And, Wow, look at those PAWS.

    Staff: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

  28. Kat
    11:45 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Junior, I will help you find your eyebrows. I think I know just where they are, now that I see that Rio Junior Junior puppy.

  29. Pancho & Lefty
    11:45 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Happy birthday to Staff!

    SiberH: Thanks. You’re a real pal. Luna refuses to put in a good word for us. We have no idea why. She says we should get comfortable on the Naughty List. Which begs the question—aren’t lists made to be eaten kind of like evidence when you’ve used your maw’s credit card?

  30. Barb & Maggie
    11:48 am on December 23rd, 2013

    You’re right, we thought that was a scarf, but it is a puppy body.

  31. Kat
    11:48 am on December 23rd, 2013

    It is Staff’s birthday? Is she older than 2?
    Happy Birthday, Staff. Alice and Abby, Get baking!

    11:51 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Cubbie!…That little cub looks like a baby beaver if youse ask me…snort!… Those eyebrows look very familiar. Junior, I hope you had no part in this,..sniff!

  33. Pancho & Lefty
    11:51 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Kat: Rio is running both ways at the same time at the thought of seeing you again. Maybe we can sneak in a “what you need to know about wooing and courting” talk when Luna isn’t looking.

    11:54 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Mom ate a very late breakfast. Eggs, of course.
    She and Pop almost always eat dippy eggs nowadays, which They didn’t use to like so much. They learned their technique from one of those cooking guys on NPR a month or so ago, right around the time the chickies began laying. Here it is.
    Use a minimum amount of butter to just barely coat a cold pan (they use cast iron).
    Turn flame on low.
    Crack open eggs into the still cold pan.
    Put some salt on eggs.
    Cook on low heat just until the yolks no longer feel cold (use your knuckle to judge).
    Voila! Nothing but the great taste of the egg.

    T&G’s folks are financially pleased. Does this meant the Hawaiian pant market is bouncing back?

  38. Dima

    If the Hawaiian pants market is making a comeback, is it a good time to sell my fleecy shirt?

  39. Siber-H
    11:57 am on December 23rd, 2013

    Pancho & Lefty, Yes, indeed, naughty lists are to be eaten. I’m living proof that eating chewed up bits of paper will cause no digestive problems.

    Happy Birthday Staff!!! Birthday Hugs!!

  40. Pancho
    11:59 am on December 23rd, 2013

    SiberH: This is excellent news! I will start at A and Lefty will start at the other end of the list. We will meet at The Evil Pug, Rio. Problem solved.

    Mom found the giant heating pad. After shopping and some laundry, she will sit on it for a coupe of hours before tackling the wrapping. Don’t know when we will see any of the kids, but are ready. Decided to let the next gen step up to the plate.
    Oh well, that’s a failure. The “boys” asked us to go to a Christmas buffet. Sounded good till they said, “Only $34.99” Wow, a little rich for our blood.

    With the exception of making some D-O-G cookies and one more trip to the grocery story, I AM DONE. Stick a fork in me. Also have to take my mom to pick of the Christmas Brisket. Ours is just local, nothing like Buddy’s, but it will still be some good eatin. Menu stands at Brisket and BBQ yardbird, corn casserole, deviled eggs, broiled brussel sprouts,broccoli cheese casserole, yet-to-be decided dish from sister, Diet Coke Salad, and homemade bread and homemade butter by our Angie.

    Belle Starr: I love that little bear cub too! Bonnie is a very sweet dog. We bonded when I came to visit. I will have a heart to heart with her. She will know that I will take good care of the little bear cub, and will place the cub in my arms . Then it’s you and me kid, on the lam, in the Witness protection Program.

    Howlers – all we can say is that the mystery card is not from our Mama. She is a bad elf, and never gets cards sent out.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STAFF!!! Woo hooooo!
    (Rio – your card was a hoot)

    Life is just a tad chaotic here. Absolutely NOTHING is going right. One of the Christmas presents for the Storyteller was sent to OUR PO Box instead of to Gramp’s address – the company said “oops, sorry”, but since the Storyteller was the one who picked up the mail, that particular mystery was over. sigh….

    Then his cell phone died. Mama said she would go deal with the store that is close to the “horizon”. Except she got a schtupid trainee kid, who simply could not understand that she needed a non iphone (in other words, old fashioned)phone, nor could he figure out how to transfer the info, and he didn’t have the accessories that he said he did.

    Somedays it just doesn’t make sense to get out of bed. We think Mama needs to just sit on the sofa and cuddle with us for a while.

    Wolfie – thank your mom for us. Yummy. Take that, goats. You didn’t get Wolfie’s package or the cards from Plunderers.

    Yay. More puppies. Yay.

    Happy Birthday Staff, and many more.

    Macy’s Mom – my mom made cookies today, finally. You’d think she forgot there’s a deadline call Christmas Eve. Hope your ingredients are now baked.

    Staff! Happy birthday to you!
    How did Alice and Abbie tolerate being locked in your room last night while the big dogs roamed free?

    Thanks for all the sixties music. I’ve been be-bopping around, making so much noise the man who lives in this house came into the living room and gave me some earphones. Makes it a bit hard to twirl! Heh, heh, heh.

    Melanie: Thanks for lightening up that picture of the puppies so that I could see them. Future Iditaroders. AJ looks so proud!

    HOH: bUT, but…we all thought those “funny” clothes were so hip.

    Hmm, we have been told by our vet to expect out-coming gas worse than twenty times normal on Christmas Day. Even worse than a smiling pug who has just finished hot wings and beer.

    Frank ate one box of Romney noodles. Still dehydrated. Uncomfortable was not the word for Frank. Not poisonous. Just not good. We had splorting earlier and now we are for the passing of strong winds.

    Frank is a food hound. Not as bad as our vet’s 70 pound lab that ate thirty pounds of food. That experience should go down in the annals of worst gas ever!

    She also says they never learn. With Frank? That is obvious.

    I was totally cooler in those bell bottoms and things that go over the things at the bottom of your legs.

    Can you tell I was moderated?

    I am SURE that was the only reason he ate that cake, BearSpiritDog. It made us laugh (the next day).

    Happy Birthday Staff.

    We liked the 3 Dog Night video, but there were a few minutes in Stuck in the Middle that caused us to loose our appetites. The close up of the eclaire and the lip stick was a little much (although the song was good).

    Temps here are actual 0 with wind chill of -15. Fun!

  112. Barb & Maggie
    7:58 pm on December 23rd, 2013

    Today we got Rio’s card and Howler’s card. Thank you both.

    We also received the best toffee in the universe! Yum. Unfortunately, Barb is gifting a good part of it. She, of course, had to sample some today; however she said chocolate is not good for dogs. Do you believe that? She is promising to make some doggy biscuits after Christmas. She said Macy’s mom inspired her.

    Emma P, rest her brachocypalic (stubby) snout was a gas bag of the nth degree. A challenge to sleep with. Ella Fitzgerald gobbled food and pooted. In fact, her last act before crossing the bridge was to fart at the v e t. Ladies, one and all :)

    Some very nice cards are keeping the USPS in business this year. They do look pretty, though, on the Hoosier cabinet :) Thanks, amigos.
    Wolfie, mom is sending the toffee undercover so darling Darah, diabetic Daddy Dawg, the boarder in the basement, and mom-pig don’t gobble it all down in 1 day.

    Loving the music links today. Got the toffee. Hid it. Also received the Steinbeck from Melanie.
    I actually made cookies. The neice wanted to make some for Dad and also play a game of Tick. We started the cookies which I baked while she lost at Tick. Heh. Sure nice to see her and her dogs and boyfriend.

    Wolfie, tell your Mom that the check is finally in the mail. I also got a lot of Christmas cards to make me feel really slow this year.

    Still trying to catch up on the blog.

    No toffee here, and now we are worried that we may have missed sending cards to some of you newer members. We were so late in sending ours this year and so we just used last year’s maillist.
    We are glad to hear that our cards are getting to most of you before the big day.

  131. Wyatt
    9:51 pm on December 23rd, 2013

    Rio: I love the card. Now you can blame your Frank-like explosions on Beau and the card. It’s good to have options.

  132. O'Howlers
    9:53 pm on December 23rd, 2013

    Macy, can your mom please bake cookies for us us us? All our folks baked are those sugar cookies we aren’t allowed to eat. Yours look wonderful, both the Noahs Ark ones and the bones.

    9:55 pm on December 23rd, 2013

    Next-Year!….I hope my friend puts way more thought into the cards she gets for me to send out next year…snort!… My cards are real losers compared to all the ones I’ve gotten so far, which is still not as many as Melanie has received….sniff!

  134. Staff
    10:09 pm on December 23rd, 2013

    We need to send that card to Frank. heh heh heh.

    The cats were fine while locked in the bedroom. The dogs were fine also. Such lovers they are. Abbie did get a little bit cabin feverish this morning but relaxed a bit. Those dogs finally left about 2 and I opened the door. The cats lifted their eyelids in a lazy manner and sauntered out. They are fine now. Didn’t even spend the rest of the day sniffing in the spare bed/quilt room.

    Great looking cookies.

    10:16 pm on December 23rd, 2013
