    Good morning, everyone! So far the news of Bentley and his human Nina are encouraging. Know there are several Plunderers under the quilt. Know you are in our pawrayers. (This includes Dawson’s car)
    Friday…mmm? Hope it isn’t fractured 🙂

    Anyway…Good morning to the Herd and all.

    Morning all. Gramp is safely ensconced at the hospital and having a great time with the dancing giraffes.
    Will be going back to get him around 2.

    Napping til then.

    Pawsitive thoughts going out to Bentley and his mom.

    Loving, healing thoughts going out to those under the quilt.

    Head shrinking this morning.

    Good day to all!

    RIO! I wasn’t sure if you liked the calendar. I hope you did. Perhaps the 2016 calendar will have a theme….The Adventures of Rio the Evil Pug!

    Thank you Spence. I’ve been wondering about Bentley.

    Rose: Your check is in the mail. Thank you for doing such a great job on the calendar.

    Good morning all.

    Good news so far for that cute little Bentley. I am sure he is going to be fine. Next Saturday is his last day, at least according to the 21 day human quarantine.

    Bad news about the doctor in NYC.

    Lovely day here, in the upper 60s. Kelly is coming up this morning and we are going to walk around the town square and go to the horribly overpriced Starbucks.

    Good cheer to all those under the quilt today.

    Wolfie, a wonderful tribute to an honorable and caring man. Eyes are leaking here and probably always will when we look at that foto.

    Staff!…You will be doing Bootie Updates, right?…snort!

    That photo says it all. Sad beyond words.

  15. Tupper and Gilly
    11:07 am on October 24th, 2014

    For those of you who do facebookie – Rebecca has set up a GoFundMe site to get a new truck. We haven’t checked, but it is probably accessible from either the main GoFundMe website or the Snowhook site.

  16. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:50 am on October 24th, 2014

    Truck!…Oh! Wouldn’t it be awesome if Snowhooks reaches 5000 smackers really quick!?? …snort!

  17. O'Howlers
    12:20 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Wolfie, that photo is showing up everywhere. It is just too sad for us to look at it.

  18. Siber-H
    12:38 pm on October 24th, 2014

    I think I saw, but am not sure because I was half asleep, that Bentley’s mom is being released from the hospital today.

    Wolfie, That is a sad photo but it is good to honor the soldier’s memory.

  19. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:38 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Bucks!…Snowhook has raised $100.00 bucks so far!…Wooooo!

  20. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:48 pm on October 24th, 2014

    GoFundMe!….snort!…What a great idea! Here is a link for those who do not venture out onto facebookie…wheeze!

  21. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:49 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Whoops!…Here is the rest of the link…heh!

  22. Siber-H
    12:59 pm on October 24th, 2014


    I used Snowhook’s link on facebookie to get to the GoFundMe site.
    I used my name and not my moms on the credit card and the transaction went through. How cool is that!

  23. Tupper's Mama
    1:08 pm on October 24th, 2014

    We wonder what Rebecca means by “this coming Saturday”. Is that tomorrow??? Or Saturday of next week?
    Wonder if they can put down a deposit so no one else gets the truck.

  24. Siber-H
    1:13 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Rebecca means tomorrow, this Sat. I read the fine print.

  25. Tupper's Mama
    1:15 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Oh sheesh – I just went back and read it again too. Now I feel like a dork.

    But the good news is that the donations are piling on.

  26. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:20 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Hundreds!…If those 900 or so guys out on facebookie all get wind of this it could really take off!…snort!…All youse facebookie guys put the word out on your facebookie pages and maybe that will spark a landslide of donations!….Woooo!

    Good morning and good news regarding Bentley.

    Cpl. Cirillo’s dogs: sob, sob.

    Thanks for the link Rio.

    Hope those giraffes are dancing slow dances with Grampa.

  28. Tupper's Mama
    1:30 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Gramp is home, and is actually doing quite well.
    No, we have NOT looked at the incision, and we aren’t going to and you can’t make us!
    But he is tolerating the pain well, is behaving (so far) as per doctor’s orders, and he is happy that the work is done.


    Now off to see brother, and see how that situation is going.

    And oh yeah, GO SNOWHOOK!

  29. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    1:37 pm on October 24th, 2014

    We are glad to hear that Gramps is doing well, and will look for an update on Brother later.

    Just had 3 pumpkin lattes at Starbucks for $14.00. Did we say overpriced? Good thing Kelly was treating.

    Found two prints at Interiors Anew, our favorite resale shop. They are now hanging in the living room.

    Now cooking a buffalo burger for lunch.

  30. Siber-H
    1:40 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Spence could put a link to Snowhook’s Dog Truck fund on Chet’s facebookie Page….just a suggestion. I know Chet would be agreeable to this.

  31. Billy's Buddy
    1:43 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Tupper’s Mama: Good news about gramps; hope brother is doing well.

    Wolfie: Beautiful family faces. Thank you.

    Rio: Thanks for the gofundme info.

    The pretzels have all been mailed.

    What am I forgetting? Probably a lot of things.

    Have a good day, everyone.

  32. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    1:50 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Just to clarify, Barb only drank one pumpkin latte, not all three.

    Great Idea for the Dog Truck Funding. GoFund has worked very well for others. Paws crossed it does the same very Quickly for Snowhook.
    GO SNOWHOOk!!!

  35. O'Howlers
    2:37 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Did we read correctly? Can’t be. Siber-H actually got the link from facebookie????? !!!!!
    Hope Admin is reading this here blog. We like the idea of him posting a link to Snowhook’s GoFundMe. Mom also shared the link on her facebookie.

    BSD! Did you see the horrible news out of Washington State? Marysville?

  36. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    2:50 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Howlers, What is happening? We just heard school shooting, two air lifted, but don’t have any details.

  37. Siber-H
    3:04 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Howlers, Yes, You read it correctly. I am not a member of facebookie but I can look at a facebookie page that welcomes everyone. That is all mom will allow.

    Chet, if Bernie’s credit card isn’t maxed out, you could grab it and donate to the Snowhook Dog Truck fund.
    SDD me if you need further instructions on how to do this.

  38. BearSpiritDog
    3:21 pm on October 24th, 2014

    O’Howlers! What???

  39. Herd of Hounds
    4:05 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Mom doesn’t do facebookie but the DDD does so we just sat all over him while mom gave him the truckie address to post on his page. Hope it works, mom just said something about trip tickets and the card was being hidden from everyone until November 🙁

  40. Tupper's Mama
    4:19 pm on October 24th, 2014

    BSD – just saw the news of another school shooting – this time in Washington state. Not up to speed on it all, but we do know 6 students hurt, and the gunman took his own life.


    When will gun madness stop?

  41. O'Howlers
    4:21 pm on October 24th, 2014

    There was a shooting at a high school in Marysville. Two are dead. One of those is the shooter. Four others were wounded. Three are critical. Too darn many of these school shootings these days. sob

  42. BearSpiritDog
    4:25 pm on October 24th, 2014

    So Very Sad. It is Not Safe Anywhere!

  43. Herd of Hounds
    4:26 pm on October 24th, 2014

    WE think it is due to media attention and people wanting their “15 minutes of fame”. There is no real thought in these actions 🙁 Grump, Bah.

  44. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    4:27 pm on October 24th, 2014

    News update – no fatalities at this point, other than the shooter, who is dead from self-inflicted gun shot. Two airlifted to hospitals, but unknown how many others might have been wounded. Shooter evidently a student who was recently suspended.

    I know I shouldn’t be voicing an opinion on gun control, but I think this country is stupid and crazy with its obsession over guns.

    My neighbor is always shrieking at her kids for fear that they are going to hurt themselves. But guess what, the grandfather in Kentucky was going to teach the 4 year old how to shoot a 22 rifle this week. Yeah, every 4 year old should know how to point a gun and pull the trigger!

  45. Wolfie
    4:29 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Mom said that we can make a donation for the New Truck, but we are going to cheat and include the pretzel $ and the starter donation for the check point dedicated to dog trucks, new and old. We reckon it all goes to the same bank account. (I want to be transparent.)

  46. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    4:30 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Looks like Howlers have more updated information than we did. Wonder if one of the two airlifted did not make it.

  47. BearSpiritDog
    4:42 pm on October 24th, 2014

    One of the 4 students (2 girls, 2 boys) was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center and is in ICU with a gunshot to the jaw.
    1 of the 3 at Providence is out of surgery and has been transferred to ICU.
    Authorities have confirmed there were 2 deaths, one was the shooter. The other may be a teacher. This is not known for sure.

    The shooter was 14 years old and reported to be a good kid, well liked and a home coming prince.

  52. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:16 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Maskers!…Sounds like he was a good actor too….grump!

  53. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    5:29 pm on October 24th, 2014

    One student interviewed did say he was well liked, but he had some issues in his history. Evidently not like some of the kids that do these things – some of them are so messed up that no one is surprised when they become totally unhinged.

  54. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:44 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Fund Me!…They are really close to $800.00 right now…wheeze!…I mean seriously close!

    The DDD and mom are ROFL about the John Oliver thing.
    We made the DDD put the truck fund on his face bookie. Told everyone to help or we would come visit them instead of Alaska

    How did we do a double Dawson while talking about the DDD?

  71. Tupper's Mama
    9:23 pm on October 24th, 2014

    We are officially in love with John Oliver. We thought his rant about the Miss American pageant was a riot – this one is even better.

    And not to break everyone’s hearts, but speaking of pageants, have you all heard that Honey BooBoo is out of a job, now that her (psychopath) mother is dating a really bad guy? Aw gee…no more “Here Comes Honey BooBoo”.

    thank dawg!

    Hello All–
    Good news about Bentley and good wishes and pawrayers for any and all under the quilt.
    I was talking to a textbook Rep. Wednesday and mentioned Smowhook, and the fact that some on this blog reside in Alaska. He responded that he was “hiring in Alaska” should I know of anyone who’s interested (he’s been flying people in on an ad hoc basis in the past).
    I know absolutely nothing more about what he’s looking for (except I assume it involves visiting schools or districts or colleges to pursuade them to buy their books), but if anyone out there is interested, reach me at blanzifloratjunodotcom and I’ll provide additional information.
    Sorry to be so scarce–getting back into traditional classroom work has proven very time consuming. Have a great night.

    Hmmm, I’ll be he’d hire a librarian. Would I like Alaska? It seems to be full of dogs.

    Right now Alaska is cold and dark!

    I’m watching the ball game and having a hot dog. Yum!

    And thinking about packing.

  78. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    10:08 pm on October 24th, 2014

    But T & G’s mama, June ( Honey Boo Boo’s mama) says she is absolutely NOT dating that guy. Evidently the t v channel that aired their show doesn’t believe her. Never watched it, never understood the viewing public’s interest in the 9 year old. Saw her on t v once, and thought she was a little brat.

  79. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:23 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Brat!….Who cares! Quit promoting her…gah!

    Baseball!…Now this game is very entertaining to say the least!…snort!

  80. Tupper's Mama
    10:26 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Oh my, it has been a looonnnggg day.
    Gramp is still doing fine, but we had to design and build a tent to hold the blankets off his feet. And Callie is just baffled cuz she keeps asking her Gramp to take her for a walk, and he just sits there.
    We are delighted to see the fund growing, and we are going to sleep with hopes that it will be much, much bigger in the morning.
    G’night family.

  81. Siber-H
    10:29 pm on October 24th, 2014

    This is a good baseball game.

    Elliot has a good point about Alaska being full of dogs, but there are 11 kats at C.Hobbits house. Elliot, you could be #12.

  82. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    10:36 pm on October 24th, 2014

    I didn’t think I was promoting her. Good night all.

    10:54 pm on October 24th, 2014

    Barb!…I luv you – I am not arguing with you. Although, I do think you and I could argue day and night just about everything…heh!heh!…My feeling is I hate the state of reality tv and the “celebs” it has created…gah!…I feel not mentioning them is the way to go…grunt!

    My Lady has been lurking off and on for the past couple of weeks, but we here at Snowhook feel it very important that you know how very grateful we are for youse. It is beyond measure what your friendship, support of and belief in Snowhook means to us. Thank you from the bottom of all our sled dog hearts. My Lady says it is right up there with how proud she is of the Giant and us, whatever that means.

    Thank you for helping us with the truck, for spreading the word of our goal and naming kats after Pancho and me. I may have snuck that last one in there to keep you on your dew claws.

    Head bumps to each of you.

    Another sleepless night…..

    I did not cry at the psych’s yesterday, but I will be trying some new meds.

    Whooooohooooo! Sorry, Wolfie, but since the Royals are closer to be an east coast team (and I am an east coast girl), I hope the give the Giants what for.

    Diane C: Jobs in Alaska? Grizz can stay in New York, but I have no problem relocating. Would you send more info, please?

    I hope that a new dog truck is possible for Snowhook. Sending the strongest prayers that this will be true.
