    Reading their names and birth dates again brings tears to my eyes. So senseless. There are no words.

    Yesterday, Mom asked Pop to read the names aloud, because she felt it was right to do. he said he coukdn’t My mom’s family name is McDonnell.
    Today, we learned that a local boy’s daughter is among the victims. Sniff

    Happy Egg Day anyways. Today we are going in the Sibaru to see Santa at our other local shelter. We coukd look for a Christmas present for the Hobbit while there. Just sayin’.

    Good Sunday Morning!

    Reading these names rips my heart to pieces. I cannot understand how these poor innocents can be taken away like this. The only comfort is knowing that the creator is holding each of them in the embrace of his love.

    Buddy, will you be my kitty? Sigh!

    Where is TC?

    My heartfelt sympathy goes out to those familes. This is a sadness beyond grief and understanding.

    Rose, I am so much cuter than Buddy. He is a bully, and a lap-hog. My mommy would never ever let me go. But thanks for asking about me.

    10:55 am on December 16th, 2012

    Rebecca, Thank you for giving us reports last night on how individual dogs are doing. Please continue that when you can. It is fun to cheer for the whole team and each dog.

    TC, you made my heart skip a beat. I love your stripes, and your eyes are gorgeous. Do you think your mom would let you visit for a weekend? I have a very nice lap, and give great scritches and rubs.

    O.Howlers: You usually stop by to chat…was wondering where y’all were yesterday.

    11:11 am on December 16th, 2012

    Hi Bear. Thanks for missing us. First off, we lost our iPaw early Friday when the rents took off for dinner and fun with friends. Then, to add salt to the wound, they took our Sibaru and iPaw to a meeting yesterday morning, and didn’t return until suppertime. Thankfully, they brought lots of food (whispering and gifts) home with them. They ate a late supper and then we all collapsed in front of the t.v. to watch Bourne Legacy, which we 4-leggeds didn’t get at all.

    Sleep in heavenly peace. That line has a stronger meaning after reading the names.

    11:19 am on December 16th, 2012

    O.Howlers: Your mom & pop out having fun…we figured as much. At least they didn’t forget to bring home treats for you, you, you & you.

    Amalia and Rebecca: Your words today are as Beautiful as your interwoven Prayer Friday evening.

  20. OleyHowlers
    11:21 am on December 16th, 2012

    We like that, Bella, and will keep those innocents in mind every time we hear that song this season.

  21. OleyHowlers
    11:28 am on December 16th, 2012

    We also missed out on the prayer announcement Friday evening, but we read the prayer yesterday. It is a beautiful prayer, with words interwoven from Amalia, Leonard, and Rebecca. It is a prayer to be repeated often.

    I would like to update on other goings on at Snowhook. My Lady brought home two new dog pillows last night. She said she got them on a one day, super sale of $14 a piece. She said that the others may have been stained with Orion’s recent medical problems. I was wary at first of the new pillows as I always am, but my lady laid on one with me to show me it was alright. I was still suspect. But, this morning when she came down to make breakfast for AJ, there I was, sound asleep on my new, second favorite pillow.

  23. OleyHowlers
    12:49 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Tenzing, How is Orion doing?

  24. Tenzing
    12:55 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Orion will be just fine. He is on straw rest for a bit longer and still has his undercarriage in tact. Our Lady says after the race he will find himself with a about more room in his nethers. He doesn’t seem to be bothered by this. I will have to show him the flip charts.

    Some prayers needed here. Zoe has just been rushed to the ER.
    She fell from our barn loft onto a wooden staircase.

    She has a gash in her forehead, several lumps on her head.
    Ribs are a problem.
    Spine could be a problem.

    My sister has gone to the ER with her.
    I’m here with the dogs. I’ll be crying for awhile.

  31. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:45 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Prayer!….Lord of All Creatures please be with our beloved Zoe right now and heal her wounds. Lord, please wrap your loving arms around Melanie and comfort her as she is distressed and terribly worried about her mother, as we all are. Lord we ask that you give Zoe the strength she needs for a full recovery. Please bring her home to be with her family for Dan’s celebration and for Christmas. Amen.

    Non-stop prayers for Zoe here.
    For those who need a bit of hope in the world, here is a nice quote:
    “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.” — Mister Rogers

    Thanks for all the cat photos. Love them!!

    Creator – we thank you this day for the community that we have together. We thank you for the laughter and the love our hearts have shared. We thank you for the closeness we have and the strength that comes from our bond.

    Creator – we lift our prayers as one voice. As one heart, we ask you to ease the pain of our Zoe. Let the injury to her body, and the ache in her heart be borne by those of us who love her, and who can withstand this hurt.

    Creator – we thank you for our community, and our bond of love. Please listen to our hearts lifted to you in healing prayers and be with Zoe.

    Amen

    I just got off the phone with our dear Melanie. What a day it has been for her. She is at home right now and I told her to get under the Quilt which will also cover Zoe. It seems Zoe was taken to a better hospital than the first choice, if I understood correctly. The hospital Zoe is at is further away from Melanie, but only 10 minutes away from Melanie’s sister. Zoe was awaks and aware when she was loaded into the ambulance and was none to happy with being put in extra pain as she was moved; Melanie kept a hold of her cane so Zoe wouldn’t teach anyone a lesson. Spitfire!

    Our dear sister, Melanie is having a difficult day. She said, “This is just too much.” Oh, sweet sister, we wish we could be with you. She did call Amalia. Leonard had her phone. She told Leonard what happened. He paused for a time and then told her with conviction, “Zoe will be okay.” It is just the time between now and and ‘okay’ that feels like a journey that is difficult to navigate.

    Rio: Your prayer is wonderful. I don’t think CHH is alone in having constant prayers since hearing the news.

    Would anyone be interested in having a prayer gathering earlier than our usual time? Melanie said she would appreciate a prayer gathering and she knows Zoe would, too.

  35. B. Stover
    2:02 pm on December 16th, 2012

    I hope Zoe is okay.

    Positive thoughts and prayers going out from here for Zoe, Melanie, and all the people in Newtown.

  38. Masquers
    2:17 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Riö: While we sat weeping at the news you jumped right in with a heartfelt prayer. Thank you for that.
    CHobbit: Your Mr. Rogers quote is so true. The helpers are always there in time of need.
    Amalia & Leonard: Words cannot express what your special prayers mean to us.

  39. Siber-H
    2:18 pm on December 16th, 2012

    We are here for the prayer and we are here for Melanie and Zoe.

    Thank You Rio and T&G for the prayers already posted. Amen

    We know this is too much for both Melanie and Zoe, but we do believe Leonard, with all our hearts, when he says Zoe will be okay.

  40. SnowBella
    2:21 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Does 4pm EST time work for a prayer? If so, I can put something together, although I think we already have wonderful words already expressed on this here blog.

    This weekend needs to be over. Now

    “and now abideth faith, hope and charity, but the greatest of these is HOPE”–
    for without hope, you have nothing. Jerry Chism
    From the morning sermon at Martin UMC today.

    We can all hope for a better tomorrow, with the faith that it will be so, as we all gather in love to surround those in pain and fear.

    Prayers in the meantime for Zoe and Melanie, and we are definitely in for the group prayer at 4:00 pm. I checked with mom and dad, and they agree with Leonard: Zoe will be okay. Mom and dad are never wrong on things like this.

  46. Barb & Maggie
    2:34 pm on December 16th, 2012

    We will try to be here for the prayer, but may have to be gone by then. We will be saying our own prayers for Zoe till then. Much love is going out to Melanie and her from all of us on the blog.

    CHobbit, that is the second time I have heard Mr. Rodgers wise words this week. The first time was on Friday from someone speaking from Newtown, Conn.

  47. Princess Sam

  49. BearSpiritDog
    2:41 pm on December 16th, 2012

    We also believe Zoe Will Be Okay.

    We ask the Creator to surround her with Healing Light & Love Now, to mend her body for A Full & Complete Recovery and to send Comfort to her daughter Melanie now.

    The Plunderers are united as one in Thought and Prayer.

    3:35 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Thank you Friends.

    I have explained to my sister that she will tell Zoe that The Plunderers are praying for her.

    One procedure is almost done. This had to be done first. They will now be looking at her fractures.

    The staff said (in a good way) “She is one tough lady.”
    Yup,
    That’s my mom.

  59. Wose
    3:37 pm on December 16th, 2012

    My heart reaches out to Melanie, offering comfort. My good thoughts and strong prayers embrace Zoe. I have faith that our creator will bring Zoe back to good health.

    This was a fabulous day right up until Mom glanced at her phone and saw bad news about Zoe. Before that, Dima, Meashka, and Kat all visited Santa and had a bzillion pictures taken. Then we played with all the other doggies and bought a permanent water bowl for the Sibaru and more toys for our stocking.
    On the way home, we made a spur of the moment stop at Antietam Lake and had a nice hike thru the woods.
    While at the Humane Society’s gift shop, lookie what we saw on the shelves. We also saw a very large GS who Mom said looked just like her picture of Chet. So she talked his mom into buying DOI !!!

    MacyMinPin: Oh. I get it.

    Staff is on the road, coming back here. It can’t be too soon for the kats! Or me, for that matter.

    A very emotionally draining day.

  71. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:44 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Creator – we thank you this day for the community that we have together. We thank you for the laughter and the love our hearts have shared. We thank you for the closeness we have and the strength that comes from our bond. Creator, today has been a difficult day for part of this community, our chosen family, and it is times like these we are even more grateful for the bond among us.

    Creator – we lift our prayers as one voice. As one heart, we ask you to ease the pain of our Zoe. Let the injury to her body, and the ache in her heart be borne by those of us who love her, and who can withstand this hurt. We offer the strong shoulders of our collective spirit to carry the pain, and give the arms of our unified bond to lift and comfort.

    Lord of All Creatures, please be with our beloved Zoe right now and heal her wounds. Lord, please wrap your loving arms around Melanie and comfort her as she is distressed and terribly worried about her mother, as we all are. Both are special to us. Lord we ask that you give Zoe the strength she needs for a full recovery. We ask that she will heal properly and quickly, and with no long lasting effects. Please bring her home to be with her family for Dan’s celebration and for Christmas.

    Creator – please guide and direct those who treat Zoe’s physical pains that they will do so with expertise and tender care. She is our treasure. Creator, we thank thee for the surety of the spoken words, “Zoe will be okay.” We are grateful for the one who spoke these words, for the comfort they provide, and we ask thee to make the path easy from this day to the place of ‘okay.’

    Creator – we thank you for our community, and our bond of love. Please listen to our hearts lifted to you in healing prayers and be with Zoe and all who love her.
    Amen

    Did youse guys see the special books on the shelf in our Humane Society’s gift shop/lobby? Cool huh? And how about the way Mom talked that woman into buying one with no problem. Don’t youse think SQ should hire her?

  78. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:52 pm on December 16th, 2012

    One of Zoë’s ribs broke and punctured her lung. They had to get the air out of her and then fix it all.

    She has a crack in her L1 vertebra but it is not compromised her spinal cord.

    They are now looking at her leg, arm, and wrist to see if they are broken.

    Melanie, it all sounds so painful for tiny Zoe. Our hearts are aching for her and for you. But we take solace in the Storyteller’s reassuring words that Zoe will be okay.
    Masquers, Yeep! Take care in that storm, Friend!

    7:28 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Thank you everyone. Been a long hard day.

    How it stands.
    2 stitches in her forehead.
    a crack in her L1 vertebra that has NOT compromised her spinal cord.
    the broken rib that punctured her lung
    She is in ICU. There is a small blood bubble on her vertebra that is being watched.
    Tomorrow she will get x rays to see if her arm, her leg, or her wrist is broken or just badly bruised.

    I am tired.

    oh My, I got home to the difficult news about Zoe. I add my prayers to all of you others. Special hugs to Melanie and her family who are so worried right now.

    Thank you for the Special Plunder prayer.

    I just spoke with Melanie. If seems Zoe is on the same feeling-good-in-no-time-happy-dancing-giraffe pills.

    Rio: it is -51 where I’m headed. That was the current temp when I checked it last. Burr!

  99. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:50 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Freezing!… Would be warm compared to that temperature…grunt!…Where in the world do they send you???…sniff!…And why?…Keep blinking or your eyeballs will freeze!…yeeep!

    7:54 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Rio: I am not there, yet. I will hopefully be able to get there tomorrow. Planes don’t fly there when it gets too cold.

    Staff: I am glad you were safe in your travels.

  101. Macy the min-pin
    8:00 pm on December 16th, 2012

    When we are cold we say we are freezing. What on earth do you say when freezing would be an improvement?

    (((hugs)))Melanie and healing licks to Zoe.

    8:03 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Bella: We knew you had a big paw print on the prayer. You are the master weaver, bringing the beautiful words together with a few wise words of your own sprinkled in for good measure.
    Safe travels to you. Riö is right…they should not send you far from home at this, the coldest, time of the year.
    Keep in touch so we won’t worry (as much).

    Rebecca, safe travels to you.

    Is this the kind of temperatures the Prof and I should expect in February? BRRRRRRRRRR!

    Belle Starr, did you receive your proper snuggles this morning, and do you get to keep Tenzing’s old pillow?

  105. Melanie
    8:09 pm on December 16th, 2012

    No arms
    legs
    wrists nor

    were
    broken

    twelve
    foot fall!

    8:12 pm on December 16th, 2012

    OH!…Praise God!…snort!…No broken bones! Oh my goodness, our prayers really have been answered…sniffle!…Zoe still will be very sore and have some serious recovery time, but she will not be bound up in casts for Christmas…..snorkel!

    Something tells me the hospital staff should not be alarmed if they see some large black Newfs comforting Zoe tonight and guarding her room.

    Time for supper now…after which we will be battening-down-the-hatches in preparation for the predicted Winter Storm.
    Hope to report back in the morning – Bear

    Singing songs of joy for Zoe.

    We are on our way home from the show. It was a good one. But the drive home is going to be very slow, long and scary. Ice pellets are raining down and the road is slippery. We know you will all be with us, but a quick prayer couldn’t hurt.

    We will post when we are safe at home in the paws of our Corgis and Wrotten Kitties.

    A 12 foot fall! That is so scary, but I know Zoe will be okay.

  114. dawson
    9:06 pm on December 16th, 2012

    A 12 foot fall! Thank goodness the spinal cord was not damaged and no broken bones. She is the Raven’s Woman – a tough bird. Notice I did not say a tough old bird. No coughing or sneezing for awhile or ouch!

    Travel safe, Plunderers.

  115. OleyHowlers
    9:36 pm on December 16th, 2012

    There is so much sadness and scariness. Thank Dog we have each other. We are wondering how long Zoe will have to stay in the hospital.

  116. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:52 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Road!…Oh dear, I keep thinking about Golinka and Leonard on those icey roads tonight…sniff!…Please Lord of All Creation guide them home safe and sound….snort!…Sounds like they cleaned up at the show this weekend, so now if they can get home to their warm soft beds it will be a blessing!…wuffle!

  117. Barb & Maggie
    9:53 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Barb is back home and has read the prayers and posts. So glad there are not worse injuries to Zoe. Good Lord, was it a 12 foot straight down drop? We were worried about a broken hip, as well. Not good at her age!

    Safe travels to Rebecca and A & L.

    Sleep well, Melanie.

    Thank you again for the wonderful prayer.

    thank you for the update Melanie.

    Safe travels to the Royals.

    The blog has been too interesting today. It is better when it is boring.

    I have been wrapping presents. Including mine. Mr.Staff and Dawson are watching the last of this season’s Survivor. It is a good thing they have each other to talk to about it. That means I don’t have to listen to either one discuss it.

    Nighty noodle all you Plunderers. Tuck yourselves under the quilt and sleep well. Our prayers are with you.

  120. SnowBella
    10:31 pm on December 16th, 2012

    What a blessing! I am so grateful that Zoe didn’t have any more broken bones. I will consider this a day of blessings especially once Golinka and Leonard arrive home safely. It is a blessing that Zoe didn’t sustain worse injury in her twelve foot fall. Leonard’s wisdom is a blessing. It is a blessing that we have one another. It is a blessing that all (Golinka, I’m counting you among this group) traveled safely today—that Staff and Barb returned home from their journies whether near or far.

    Melanie: I received a text from Coach. My parents are including you and Zoe in their prayers.

    I arrived to my hotel room for tonight safely. It is currenlty forty degrees below zero. Tomorrow I will get up early and get on a small plane and head north. I brought my bunny boots for this trip.

    Golinka: Please check in when you get home if you’re not too tire.

  121. Luna
    10:37 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Smoochers: I suggest we divide our efforts and dispatch to the Plunderers who may need a little extra love. Two of us can tend to Zoe and two others can got to Melanie and the pack. I’ve asked Savannah from the Kennel to head to BSD and Masquers to wait out the storm. She has a calming way about her and little phases her.

  122. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:37 pm on December 16th, 2012

    Maskers!…You are the Kat’s Meow!…snort!…I must be emotionally drained because it is still early but I know I will not make it up much past 9:00 (my time)…wheeze!… Because of the time difference you will be able to welcome Golinka and Leonard home sweet home…snuffle!

  123. Tupper and Gilly

    Home! Home! Slipping and sliding but not bumping or scraping.

    Rio – trust us, Mama is much better suited for dark, winter road driving than our Dad. She even kept the speed down from her usual 80 mph on the road home from Boston. (did we ever tell you about the first time she made it home in record time. That was the time that she was bring Melanie home from the Boston hospital. Melanie was SO sick, and in SUCH pain, and Mama was scared to death driving her all the way home. At one point, Mama thought for sure Melanie was going to pass out. At that point, she just nailed the gas pedal to the floor and FLEW! She figured is she had to get Melanie to another hospital on the way home, she knew exactly what exits had hospitals…and if a cop stopped her, she would just have him escort them to the closest hospital. We found out that day just how fast a Malibu Maxx can go….ZOOOOOOMMM!!)

    So, now they are hoe safe, and we hare holding them down to keep them from floating away. Ah, bliss….

  124. Masquers
    10:54 pm on December 16th, 2012

    T&G! Thank Kat they are home safe and sound! Now we can retire to our warm soft beds in comfort.
    Luna: Savannah will be most welcome here…thank you for thinking of us. Her bed has been prepared and awaits her arrival.

    This has been a draining day both in reality and fantasy. Does anyone else watch Dexter or Homeland? Both were season finales and left mom gasping for breath.

    11:32 pm on December 16th, 2012

    SnowBella: it occurs to me that he Plunderers might now know what “bunny boots” are. You might want to describe them or send a photo. Otherwise, it sounds strange.

    Oh my goodness, I just heard the news about Zoe. My loving thoughts are with her and Melanie.

    6:38 am on December 17th, 2012

    Thank you, Lord creator that you have returned the Royals safe and sound to their home . Please keep Bella safe during her travels, embrace Melanie in your love, and restore Zoe to good health. Please also keep my dear friends Masquers and Bear safe from harm.

    If I may ask for one more blessing, please take good care of G&BB, their mom, and especially their dad. Please restore him to good health.

  133. Gus & BooBear
    7:35 am on December 17th, 2012

    It is early Monday morning, and we just got on the computer after a very busy Sunday and saw the news about Zoe’s fall. What a scare for both her, Melanie and the rest of her family (as well as the Plunderers). Thank goodness the report of injury isn’t as bad as it could have been, but we know she will have to take it easy for a while. Our prayers are with her.

    And Melanie, take care of yourself as well!

    Rose, thank you for the good wishes for Dad. Although the 2nd intraarterial chemo has been harder to bounce back from, Dad is doing great and the prognosis is still excellent! We truly have been blessed in every step of his recovery.

  134. OleyHowlers
    8:15 am on December 17th, 2012

    Wose, that was a perfect prayer. Amen and thanks.

    Hi, G&BB! Glad to hear Dad is doing well.

  135. BearSpiritDog
    8:40 am on December 17th, 2012

    Wose: That was Beautiful Morning Prayer. Thank you for thinking of our Safety in the Storm.

    Gus&BooBear: We are Very Happy to hear your Dear Dad is doing well. He (along with your family) is always included in our prayers.

    Good Morning O.Howlers & All.

    (still online, but the wind is picking up again)

  136. Rose
    9:03 am on December 17th, 2012

    Good Morning!

    G&BB: I am so happy to hear that your dad is doing well. It makes my heart smile on the drizzly day.

    Good morning Oleys…I just loved your card. I think the Prof is crushing on the smoochiest Smoocher, Kat.

    Bear, you and Masquers stay warm and dry. I hope you will be with us for the day.
