    Good mornning, everyone! Sunny and 28 here going up to 36. When our people leave for AK next Tuesday, it will be 70 with thunderboomers. We made the boarder in the basement promise us, us, us that we can check under his bed for dust bunnies if that happens. Crazy to sit and stare? Cool. Kinda like day dreaming.
    Have a fun filled Friday.

    Good morning. No crazy members of my pack. Well, at least no crazier than the ‘rents we live with!

    As promised, here is the breakdown of the NON-SPONSORED Snowhook Dogs:
    Race Dogs
    Bonnie {Clyde’s Other Half!}
    Quigley {GASP}
    Louisa Mae {DOUBLE-GASP!}
    Little Cousin Bob
    Chet & Bernie {We think they are a two-for!!!}
    Kirby G. Runworthy

    Coach still needs $50 more

    After reading that article, it sounds just like me! Heh!

    (whispering) Belle Starr, can you get your sparkles back from the Pixie and make sure all of the team have sparkles on their booties?

  5. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:29 am on February 27th, 2015

    Good morning. We are going to go take the crazy test.

    Wose, have you heard any updates on Sugar?

  6. dawson
    10:22 am on February 27th, 2015

    I don’t think I will take that test. I may get depressed with the results.
    More money thrown away on studies when they could just ask Chet.

    So impressed with the number of dogs sponsored and amazed at how many are still left. We wish we could sponsor all of them!

    Spencer and Admin: Chet and Bernie for $500! It’s a no-brainer!

    Rio: Pondering on the cehckpoint map….

    Morning everyone.
    Great reporting from Snowhook last night. This is The Year Things All Go Smoothly for our favorite team and Iditarod!

    Happy Birthday Pop.

    We took the test and no one here is crazy, not even Barb!

    Test!…My friend thinks if her mother took the test we would find out something we already know…heh!heh!

    10:47 am on February 27th, 2015

    Bellie!…Great reporting from atop Ole’ Doc…snort!…Lots of good information and not too much sparkly exaggeration…sniff!

    11:04 am on February 27th, 2015

    Pop’s birthday is not until Monday (same day as last year’s Restart!).
    We here tend to go BIG and celebrate for an entire 3-day weekend. Heh!

  13. BooBear
    11:20 am on February 27th, 2015

    I feel really bad for the dogs that aren’t sponsored yet. Belle Star, make sure they understand it isn’t because they aren’t loved and important!

    Coach is a very handsome otherwise dog!

  14. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:39 am on February 27th, 2015

    Couch!….I’ve searched but I can’t find any more loose change in that old couch…sniffle!

  15. Wose-the small and meek
    11:48 am on February 27th, 2015

    Happy birthday to the Howlers pop, and many more!

    B,M,&L, I have not seen anything else on the news since it was first reported. I really hope that Sugar will be found, and returned to her mom.

    RIO! I have been searching in between my couch pillows too, but all I come up with is crumbs from food that Grizz and I have eaten. I feel very bad about not being able to give more…

  16. Herd of Hounds
    11:52 am on February 27th, 2015

    With only four days until the peeps take off, we’re not sure if they have any money left but we want it for our treats. Well will let them look anyway.

  17. dawson
    12:00 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Rio: I wasn’t thinking of the checkpoints being all changed up when I sent you to the Snowhook Checkpoints link last night. Check your SDD for the updated list.

  18. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:01 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Rose!…sniffle!…We can all take comfort and pride in the fact that we here at Chet’s Blog have done a very VERY good job of supporting our beloved Snowhook Team….snorkel!

    Ultimate!…I bit the bullet and signed up for the Ultimate Insider just now…grunt!…Here’s hoping they got all the bugs fixed…sniff!

    12:07 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Forget? Who me? Eating is one thing I Never Forget. Heh.

    Wishing the O’Howlers Pop a Happy, Happy Birthday Weekend Celebration!

    Wose: Let us know if you hear Any News about Sugar. If only they could get information from the Dog Walker Dude.

    Frantically going through Couch Cushions here too.

    Leonard Nimoy (Spock) died at 83 years of age.

    1:08 pm on February 27th, 2015

    As per usual, great reporting from Bellë last night.
    Riõ: I’m going to upgrade our subscription to the Ultimate Insider. This is one year we want to have access to not only GPS, but all videos.
    Thanks for the link to the YQ awards, O’Awesome One.

  23. Siber's Mom
    1:09 pm on February 27th, 2015

    All those questions in the doggy quiz are symptoms of age-related dementia in dogs. The vets have known about this condition for a long time. There is a drug for it that may or may not help.

    Belle Starr, Fine reporting last night. I see a successful career in journalism in your future. It will pay for all the bling your heart desires.

    Happy Birthday to the Howler’s Pop!

    Dawson, Thanks for the video.

    We will always Remember His Words: Live Long & Prosper”.

    Spock!….Live Long and Prosper…sniff!

  26. Meashka
    1:12 pm on February 27th, 2015

    I have an announcement. AHEM. Coach is now fully sponsored. WOO HOOO !!! That makes a total of 28 dogs!!!

    Awesome, Thanks for that video. Mom and I just watched Mike Ellis, who we think is the 2nd coolest musher on the planet. Mom is now all teary-eyed. I am smiling.

  27. Mpop's and Loulou's Mom
    1:12 pm on February 27th, 2015

    This gets awfuler and awfuler. The latest report from Jay and Tyb:

    4 hours, two plumbers, and $350.00 later, I still am without water. The plumbers ascertained that my lines from the curb shut off to the house are open. The frozen section must be in the city line on the other side of the street. The city has no idea how long it will be before they are able to thaw mains.

  28. Masquers
    1:22 pm on February 27th, 2015

    What a sad situation for Jay and Tyb.
    It may, or may not, have been worth the $350 to prove to the City it is their problem. Now Jay and Tyb must hound them to death.
    We think they should go to local news sources to speed up the action.

  29. O'Howlers
    1:28 pm on February 27th, 2015

    This is terrible for Jay and Tyb. We don’t know how they are coping. Although, yesterday when Mom dropped her Prius off for inspection, she learned that they have been without water all week. And they are just down the street from where Mom works. The breakage is somewhere between the two.

  30. Siber's Mom
    1:34 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Meashka, I’m with your mom about the Mike Ellis video…sniff
    The leader that refused to go up Eagle Summit…I could see Siber-H pulling a stunt like that for absolutely no reason that could ever be explained.

    Ditto to everything Masquers said about the Jay and Tyb situation.

  31. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    3:26 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Barb loved Leonard Nimoy and Startrek back in the days when it was a t v show -late 60’s. We just read that he created the hand sign, which reminded him of the way rabbis ended their service.

    It it makes you feel any better Jay, insurance does cover frozen pipes within the house, subject to your policy deductible.

  32. Diane C.
    3:33 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Aaagh! First Siber-H, and now Mr. Spock! Even today’s impending rain can’t cheer me (not to mention the honeymoon is definitely over in this term’s Econ. classes–I gave the first quiz).
    On the other hand, I feel that Conan’s exhibiting some of the symptoms listed is just proof that he is moving ever closer to transcending this physical plane. He’s not crazy–he’s evolving spiritually…
    Go Snowhook! And extra sparkles on the booties can only help.

  33. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    3:35 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Wose, we also logged on to the NY Post website, and didn’t see anything more about the dog. We do not have a good feeling about it, due to the fact that the dog walker was in possession of the collar and sweater. But maybe we have just watched too many crime shows. Hoping for the best.

  34. Diane C.
    3:36 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Oh no! I was just catching up on the news about Sugar, frozen pipes, etc.! All are in my pawrayers.

  35. BearSpiritDog
    4:33 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Barb,Magpie,Lucy: Thought we heard his owners say Sugar might be wearing his Blue Sweater which is strange because, as you previously stated, the NY Post reported the sweater was found in the Dog Walker’s apartment.
    And, Why was he pounding on their door screaming obscenities?
    On a Positive Note…Sugar has a Microchip.

    DianeC: That’s about all any of us can do. Send Positive Thoughts and Prayers.

  36. O'Howlers
    4:37 pm on February 27th, 2015

    We have not yet renewed our Insider subscription. We figured we would, given that it is the only game in town, as many of you have said. But after watching and tracking the Quest FOR FREE, we are second-guessing the choice to give money to Insider. The Quest covered so much better, and all videos were free, even each and every speech. What does Insider do to deserve the money they charge?

  37. Herd of Hounds
    4:39 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Mom went to see the people v e t today 🙁 The dr.s told her not to catch anything else except us. Extreme short course of anit-biotics and an Rx cough syrup. He says it is some kind of sinus/upper respiratory thing. But thinks with mega drug should get knocked out quickly. Still has the Airborne and mask for crowded enclosed places.
    We will also miss Nimoy/Spock.

    O’H, they are a 501C so any $$$ with them is a tax donation which is probabpy good.

  39. Siber's Mom
    4:48 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Howlers, Very well said.

    During the Iditarod there is good information, for free, in the Anchorage and Fairbanks newspapers, and on the websites of the Anchorage tv stations.

  40. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:53 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Maps!….I’ve been slaving away on the new Re-Routed Iditarod Maps – yes I had to break it into two maps because of the silly map scale that was on the Iditarod webpage…grump!…Anyways, I will need help filling out the Checkpoint donors, especially the new unknown-to-us checkpoints…sniff!…Here is a sample of what I have so far…grunt!

    Open!…If you right click and “Open link in new Window”, you may get a better view of it….wheeze!

  41. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Dawson!…I have to wait till my friend gets home so she can check the SDD@gmail. She changed the password and will not divulge it to me…grump!

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:45 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Math!….Well, if we could find some rich guy off the street and get a check for $12,900.00 all of the Guys and Gals at Snowhook Kennel would be sponsored….snort!…That would be amazing!…wheeze!…Maybe we could find 4 guys and get a check for $3225.00 from each of them!…heh!…Or what if we got 8 guys to give us each $1,612.50??…Zow!…Wouldn’t that be amazing and awesome and simply downright fun?…heh!heh!

  45. Siber's Mom
    5:49 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Rio Thanks for the maps and the broadcast schedule. Good job!

  46. Tupper and Gilly
    6:27 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Rio – how about it we got 12,900 people to each give one dollar?

  47. Masquers
    6:40 pm on February 27th, 2015

    As I recall, we had problems watching GCI streaming last year…didanyone else have any luck with it?

  48. Masquers
    6:43 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Good job: Riõ, Howlers, Dawson, Staff, and everyone helping to setup fund-raisers, checkpoints, maps, etc.

    HRH B: Do Arctic Sommeliers worry about the wine chill factor?

  50. BooBear
    7:03 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Rio, I am pretty sure that White Mountain is still for Gus & Truman. However, I do not know if that checkpoint is now being shared with any others.

  51. BearSpiritDog
    7:16 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Nana says Unalakleet is the Checkpoint for Bear&Masquers.
    We are Happy to Share.

    Royals: I Like Your Idea Best…it’s easy to get Dogs & Kats to cough up a buck.

  52. BearSpiritDog
    7:21 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Chet has 6482 Facebookie Friends, so that would be 2 Bucks each. Still doable.

  53. Herd of Hounds
    7:31 pm on February 27th, 2015

    WE believe we are sharing Huslia with someone. Could be wrong, wouldn’t be the first time.

  54. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:12 pm on February 27th, 2015

    HOH, Went by the library with Lyla and Jack after school and played for awhile. They have sort of a neat thing for kids, which you might be interested in for your library. They have backpacks which are filled with related materials on a subject: i.e. insects, animals, astrology, cooking, etc. They are tagged as Preschool, Primary, or Intermediate. Then you check out the whole bag. Not sure how they inventory the contents, but it seems like a great idea.

    Ghost Hawk was in, so sat and read that for a bit while the kids played on computers. It is easy reading, of course, but very interesting.

  55. dawson
    8:12 pm on February 27th, 2015

    HOH is sharing Huslia checkpoint the Kats Rule!!

    Gus & Truman have White Mountain to themselves except that Siber H will be visiting each and every checkpoint along the way!

    Rio: Good job getting the map even if it is in two pieces. I could only get one half to print.

  56. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:23 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Dawson!….Map(s) are not finished…snort!…I will attempt to complete them this weekend – so don’t bother trying to print at this point. I have not checked your SDD yet – but I am hoping it will help me fill in the empty spaces next to the Checkpoint names…heh!heh!

    9:49 pm on February 27th, 2015

    I have a question for you experienced flyers. What kind of food/snacks can I take on the plane? It is going to be hours! I am terrified I will starve. sniff.

    I am still packing. The laundry is done.

  64. BearSpiritDog
    10:02 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Staff: Food…Nana always brings a Sandwich and a Snack…such as Nuts or Trail Mix.

  65. Tupper' and Gilly
    10:02 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Staff – you can any kind of food you want – sandwiches, chips, m&m’s. You just can’t take beverages through security. But there are always numerous (outrageously overpriced) food shops along the concourse past the security checkpoint where you can buy beverages that you can take onto the plane.

  66. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:11 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Staff!…You will not starve!…heh!heh!…Even my friend who was scared stiff managed to feed herself – she only lost one breakfast down the toidy one time (before the first flight)…gurgle!

  67. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    10:32 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Staff, Maybe you already told us this, but when is your flight?

  68. Masquers

If a man owns a hundred sheep, an one of dem wanders away, will he not leave da ninety-nine on da hills and go ta look for da one dat wandered off? – Matthew 18:12…snuffle!…My thoughts and prayers are for Rebecca as she looks for dat guy Elmer who is old an could possibly pass dat test wiff flying colors…snuffle!cough!…Dear Lord of all Creation, please let our Rebecca find dat ole Elmer tonight…sniffle!sneeze!

    Beau: Good to see ya! Now what’s this about Elmer?

  75. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:04 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Beau!…He is completely beside himself, and I am also beside him, as he and I are very worrit about old Elmer and about Rebecca as she is out searching in the dark for him…wuffle!….Everyone please put yer paws together in a prayer for Elmer. And then also pray that Rebecca does not run into a moose or worse out there in the dark while searching…yeeep!sniffle!

  76. BearSpiritDog

    11:11 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Oh yeah!
    Staff: I usually bring a container of mixed nuts and cheerios, some cheese (not stinky cheese!), olives (not stinky ones!), some fresh fruit and of course, chocolate! You don’t like chocolate so you will have to substitute. I drink water, plain and simple. I don’t know if your immune system allows you to fill up from the drinking fountain but that is what I do with reusable water bottle. I fill up before getting on the plane.

  79. dawson
    11:16 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Prayers that Elmer comes home and that Rebecca stays safe.

  80. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:20 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Dawson!…That is good Aeroplane advice and someone here will be taking it to heart next time she flies anywhere…snort!…I’m sure she will try to fly again. I am completely sure of it…heh!heh!…She says she now knows how to get to Alaska, so maybe she can learn how to get to other places if she is invited…grunt!…The catch is, I have to come along too…sniff!

  81. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:22 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Beau!…He will report any new news if he hears any new news tonight about Elmer and his walk-about…sniffle!

  82. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:22 pm on February 27th, 2015

    She must have been really nervous!

    Night all.

  83. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:28 pm on February 27th, 2015

    We were making the comment about Rio’s friend being nervous flying. Then we forgot to submit, and by the time we did there a bunch of comments about Elmer and Rebecca.

    So we add our good thoughts for Elmer and hopefully he will be found soon.

  84. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:31 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Still don’t see where Rebecca posted anything about looking for a missing Elmer. What are we missing?

  85. Beau - The Black Pug
    11:36 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Sneeze!…Reports!…Sneeze!…I have heard a word dat Rebecca has spotted Elmer running near da highway…gasp!…He is hard a’ hearing and did not hear her when she yelled for him – der was much traffics on dat highway. She says she tracked him in da big trees, but it is dark and he is dark so..gulp!…She thinks he is heading towards home, but on the wrong side of dat highway…gasp!…Let us all pray he will find his way home and cross dat dern highway safely….sniff!sneeze!

  86. dawson
    11:38 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Perhaps Rio or Beau got a SDD from Rebecca?

  87. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:39 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Barb!…Think about it…grunt!…If one of yours were missing, would you sit down and post about it first before going out and searching?…sniff!…All you are missing is some logical thinking.

  88. Siber's Mom
    11:41 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Beau, Amen
    Prayers for Elmer and Rebecca.
    Let’s all send up strong prayers and good thoughts for Elmer and Rebecca as we go to sleep tonight.

    Night All

  89. Masquers
    11:42 pm on February 27th, 2015

    There will be no sleep tonight…not until Elmer and Rebecca are
    safe at home.

  90. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:43 pm on February 27th, 2015

    No Rio, I would not post about it first. So how do you know about it? I thought there was something on the blog that I missed. I am as logical as Mr. Spock, BTW.

  91. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:46 pm on February 27th, 2015

    Barb!…Beau is reporting!…grunt!…A quick text or two informed us on my Go-Phone … And No You Are Not, no matter what you believe….heh!

  92. Barb, Maggie and Lucy

    Sibermom: You are right, of course. It is better to say our prayers and send out good thoughts, rather than fret and worry.
    Siber was always the wise one…I see it has rubbed off on you.

    I am really going to sleep now. I will either turn my computer on in the middle of the night or as soon as I wake up in the morning. The last time I did that was when Staff was in the hospital…a long time ago.

    I am really concerned about Elmer and Rebecca.

    I know, Rio. I am sad that Siber-H is missing the snow…maybe he blew this storm our way for the fun of it.

    I also feel this is one sled dog walkabout that even Siber
    wouldn’t approve of it…not that he wouldn’t do the same thing if given the chance.

    I know what it is like to search for a beloved pet in the dark. When Abbie was really young she got out and was out all night. In the evil city! It was awful. But she did come home. She had been hiding under the neighbors deck for most of the time.

    Alice once tried to get into that same neighbors house when she had gotten out. But I was right on her tail and she didn’t manage to sneak in although the neighbor was willing. Heh. I snatched her up from right under that neighbors nose

    ELmer come HOME.

    And thanks for the snack ideas guys. I won’t be getting water from water fountains but I will buy some before entering the airplane.

    Happy Birthday late to DDD.

    NIght all.

    Elmer!…Is an old retired guy. Maybe he left to pursue a last adventure!..snuffle!…Maybe he had dreams of one last great race and opened the Retired Dogs Pen door just because he had one more race in him…sniff!…Go Elmer! Go!…But please come back if you can.

    All of us here want to thank all youse for your prayers. Our Lady just brought Elmer home. He is safe.

    On Friday afternoon our lady went out to the kennel to spend some time with us and there was an open pen and no Elmer. AJ is away training so she was alone to search our wooded property for a couple of hours. She climbed up and down hills on the crusty snow trying to feel Elmer with her heart. Luna joined her to help. After a fruitless search, our lady took to driving the highway looking for Elmer with a prayer in her heart and a half a tank of gas. She spotted him shortly after hitting the road, but lost him in the trees. For the next handful of hours she searched and prayed, prayed and searched. Around 930, our lady called MaBella to ask her to pray. What did MaBella say to our Lady? First, she told our Lady to pull over, and then she said, “Elmer isn’t lost, he’s just lost to you.” Our Lady listened. MaBella then said, “This is a lot like the ninety and nine.” Our Lady started weeping again. This was different than the sobs she sobbed when she was walking through the woods and caught up to a couple on a winter hike. Ever been hugged by a stranger, wearing a handgun in a chest holster why you cry about a lost dog named Elmer? No? Our Lady has. Beau and MaBella must have been texting on their little go-phones to have spoken about the ninety and nine.

    MaBella said she knew our Lady would not stop looking if she could help it, but it was dark and the highway was busy. She made our Lady that after doing one more drive of the highway she would go home and could resume the search at first light. The conversation was ended by reminding our Lady that the Creator is mindful of all his creatures including old dogs, especially old dogs.

    Our Lady returned home and checked each of the dog houses in case the prodigal dog sneaked in while she was searching for him. Still no Elmer. She was just about to check online for the time of sunset so she could plan the continued search when she received a message on facebookie. Someone had found an old dog and might he be our old dog? Yes!

    Thank you again for your prayers. Our prayers are no prayers of gratitude.

    I am only now reading this news. Last night was Pizza Night, so iPaws were on lockdown. Whew!!! Thank Dog Elmer is safely home. I trust he is no worse for the ordeal? Dog bless the facebook friend that found him and retrieved him. Walkabouts are not a bad thing. They come naturally to our kind. But walkabouts when you are old and deaf and not of sound mind are indeed terrifying to your guardians. I should know. I was Sasha’s guardian thru many, many years of her senility and deafness. I never ever let her out of my sight. Bella, what you need is a Meashka to keep an eye on your Elmer.
