    We found the photo that Staff mentioned last night: Dan Kaduce blows thru Stepping Stone. Cool pic. Why is Dawson dreaming about him?

    G&BB asked about Louisa Mae. She still needs $155 to be fully sponsored.

    I received an SDD from Barb, our chicken lady this morning. She sends a fond hello to all us Plunderers, and she said she is busting out in 2 days! Yipee!

    Lots of snow expected here Friday, and Saturday. Yipee!

    Reprieve!!! The dog groomer was running so late yesterday that there was no time for us to get tortured…ummm, make that “get our nails clipped”. So we never, ever have to worry about that again. Although Mama did say we are going for a ride tomorrow. Wonder where we are going.

    Melanie – we went to bed giggling last night. And had funny dreams too.

    Mama is off to do a day of errands before the snow.

    T&G, I am afraid you two are going to the same place tomorrow that I am going next week. I just checked my mom’s calendar.

    No dream was remembered…only the name, “Dan Kaduce” was in my head when I awoke. No idea who, what, where or why. Perhaps I am spending too much time looking at the Yukon Quest sites.

    Oley Howlers: Love the nature video with saxaphone.

    Snowhook Bella: Your story of Whitey-Lance and his “run-about” during the 2010 Iditarod has it all: joy, sadness, adventure, love, loyalty, friendship and dogs! Thank you.

    Rob Cooke is in 18th place in the Yukon Quest and Lance Mackey is in 19th place. Mom told me it is too soon to get my hopes up that a team of rookie Sibers could beat LM.

  20. dawson
    11:32 am on February 7th, 2013

    SiberH: I saw that Rob Cooke and Lance Mackey were next to each other in the standings last night. Go Siberians! The mushers have been complaining about warm weather for the dogs. The Siberians have thicker coats, right?

  21. Siber-H
    11:37 am on February 7th, 2013

    Dawson, Unfortunately, Siberians have much thicker coats than Alaskan Huskies.

  25. Masquers
    11:52 am on February 7th, 2013

    Dreaming of Mackey and the Sibes…head to head, neck in neck down the trail. It doesn’t matter if the Sibes win just so long as they beat you know who.
    Siber: 40 hours is a long time!

    Staff: The link from a Catty’s library about the saved manuscripts in Timbuktu is most Interesting.

    Whitey-Lance: Woozer! What an Amazing Tale your Lady has written!!! There is not a dry eye in the house.

    Tupper&Gilly: Saved by the Snow! There will be no clipping of nails for youse tomorrow.

  27. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:37 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Typo!…I bet SiberH meant a 4 hour rest, not a 40 hour rest …heh!…that would be 1.67 days worth of rest…snort!

  28. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:44 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Hi Kirby!

    Lance Mackey has scratched, citing the well-being of his dogs, poor guy. That is two scratches so far, Ed Abrahamson was the first scratch.

  37. Siber-H
    1:48 pm on February 7th, 2013

    LM scratching doesn’t surprise me. He was doing so poorly. I am glad he made the decision for the good of his dogs.

  38. Masquers
    1:50 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Do you think it has something to do with poor trail conditions?

  39. Siber-H
    1:51 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Masquers, Is that you in the photo? That is a lot of snow.

  40. Masquers
    1:51 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Hi, Kirby!

  41. Siber-H
    1:54 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Masquers, Poor trail conditions could be part of the reason he scratched, but I am guessing it is because he was down to 9 dogs so early in the race. There are more difficult elevations to climb in the Quest than there are in the Iditarod.

  42. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:55 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Mackey!…Poor guy! (not!)…snort!…The end of his reign is drawing nigh…chuffle!

  43. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:56 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Home!,..I just got a text on my little Go-Phone that said my friend is coming home…snort!…She is on her way right now…wheeze!…I hope it is for Good!…yeeep!

  44. Masquers
    1:58 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Siber: Yes, that is möi. The photo was taken in a year when we had lots of snow…not this year…now we have zilch.
    About the YQ…it seems this is a whole different kind of race.
    We are worried about the trail conditions for the Iditarod. It is coming up very soon.
    Maybe the East Coast could divert their anticipated blizzard to the north.

    Wooo! Wooo!!!! Are youse guys telling us that a team of good ole Sibes beat the arrogant lm???? AWOOOOOO!

    Bella’s W-L story was beautufully written and tearfully felt here.

    Masquers…a snow cat? Who’da thunk it?
    Masquers, plans for a Seattle trip are made. Are you really going to be away when our rents are there? Imagine! A Plunderer get-together without the hometown Plunderer. Sniff

  47. Siber-H
    2:11 pm on February 7th, 2013

    just thinking…Another reason mushers can scratch like LM did is when a gut virus goes through the team. This does happen and the dogs recover and are fine, but they are out of the race for their own welfare.

  48. Melanie
    2:11 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Hmmm . . Lance scratches for the good of his dogs. That’s good. I wonder if he pushed them too much at the beginning.

    Whitey-Lance story . . sniff. Good thing I knew it turned out okay.

    Masquers, you are a wonder Kat.

  49. Siber-H
    2:12 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Okay, Rio. Why is your Friend home early? Another computer snafu perhaps?

    Happy Birthday Belle Starr! May all things good and sparkly come your way.

    There are two mushers that have left Dawson City (Hugh Neff and Allan Moore) and three more (Jake Berkowitz, Brent Sass and Scott Smith) that can leave today…the rest have to finish their 40 hour layovers and won’t be leaving before tomorrow. I like Scott Smith because is a rookie keeping up with the veterans on the Quest.

    Hugh Neff leaving Dawson after Dawson Dolly sings to him. Evidently she (and her nuggets) are well known on the Quest.

    At the end Hugh says to the man holding the papers that he signs as he leaves…
    “Say Hi to Lance for me would you? Tell him I’m thinking about him.”

    I wonder why there are some who don’t like Lance. He has never done anything that I can see that makes him disliked. He has always been a good musher and good to his dogs. Yes he won a lot of races, but he is a good loser when he doesn’t win. I hope he and his dogs are OK. Hugh Neff sounded sort of serious.

  60. Masquers
    3:35 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Staff: We have friends who are loyal LM followers. Now that you mention it how did all this bad publicity start? I would never wish anything bad on a musher. A courageous lot they are.

  61. OleyHowlers

    We here don’t like him because of how he blamed all his problems last year on his dogs.

    Masquers, That is a cute picture of you in the snow. Lucky kat.

    Staff, I’ll tell you something good about Lance. He almost died from cancer and he says it was only because of his dogs that he lived…their comfort and companionship. I believe him.

    It has been a sparktacular birthday! I started by hogging my Two-legged’s side of the bed until she saw reason to spoon me. I got early morning tummies. To celebrate the day of my birth, Annabelle splorted early in the morning. I curled on top of my Two-legged’s pillow while she was cleaning the splort. My most special, best friend Wose sent me an e-card.

    My Two-Legged and the Giant stayed up late last night putting gold bond powder in booties. They made a mess. The Giant picked up the bootie order—thanks to Team Shake your Bootie—yesterday. Drop bags are due on Wednesday and vet checks are on Tuesday. All this race preparation is taking away from my belly rubs, but I guess everyone has to sacrifice.

    5:40 pm on February 7th, 2013

    BSD: I don’t know if I get ice cream cake tonight, but I can report that AJ will have astornaut ice cream on the trail thanks to a Plunderer. It arrived my Two-legged’s office yesterday. He is planning on sending some to his 24 hour layover and then to White Mountain for the mandatory 8 hour layover.

  75. Belle Starr
    6:02 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Where is Rio? I wonder if his Friend is home by now?

    My Two-Legged says the book title, ‘Living in Alaska and the Strange Men on my Doorstep,” came to mind this morning when she and the AJ found a new resident in the handler cabin. Possibly, it’s a story for another time.

  76. Melanie
    6:40 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Ice cream, I’m going to eat ice cream, and I’m going to eat it everyday . . Love those old records of Bill Cosby.

    I haven’t had astronaut ice cream since the last time I went to the Air and Space museum. Yummers.

    Belle Star, if a new resident moved in her it would be a red squirrel.

    Staff, I have looked for the Wonder Woman bracelets. I think I will make mine with aluminum foil. I will then put a pen between my teeth and pose for two minutes. Hope this works..

    Mr.Husky if they ‘found’ a new resident it is probably not someone (or something) they expected.

    Rio, She says she just didn’t care about the characters. It has very little plot. You know how Stover is about grammar…mom is that way about geography. An author doesn’t have to tell her where the story takes place, but mom at leasts likes to be able to guess it. She could never figure that out in The Road, as I am sure that was the author’s intentiions Mom says she should have known she wouldn’t like it because Ophra Winfrey loved it.
    Boring is a good word to describe mom’s opinion of The Road.

    We realize we are in the minority with this review of the book.

    Bella, loved your story about W-L. You are an excellent writer , and so good at making the reader feel your emotions.

    Thanks Bella.

    Another question: was the Winsome One, Louisa Mae, on the Tustumena 200? She was not mentioned in any of Philip’s photos.

    We tried to post the photo of AJ’s cuticles here, but the image gets saved as all black. Tricky NYT.

    Mom says that Astronaut ice cream is like little balls of dried up cotton candy, but that is just one person’s opinion.

    You may remember that I mentioned on Sunday that a certain bee-och *coughbellecough* bit me. Well, today I went to the v-e-t for my yearly, and instead she shaved my BACK. Turns out that I have two quarter-inch deep puncture wounds, and they are 1/2 inch in diameter. Have any of you ever had to deal with something like this? It hurts like h-e double hockey sticks. The doc said that since I can’t turn my head 190 degrees I can skip the cone of shame. I MUST LICK THIS. It is driving me nuts. It is oozing all the time and I am a bloody mess, and mom keeps trying to clean me and I am about ready to bite someone myself.

    Happy Birthday Belle Star, not to be confused with the bee-och that bit me.

    We were just looking at all the bookcovers, and noticed that the titles are the colors of the rainbow. So, is the new one going to be purple? Inquiring minds…

    Macy, You are just going to be patient while it heals. I am glad the vet is taking care of it.
    Your mom might want to call the vet and report that you are being driven nuts and can anything be done to take the edge off.

    Mom thinks she must have eaten astronaut ice cream in freeze dried food for backpacking.

    Macy: Do you know Why she bit you?

    Staff: You are really on top of these Cool Race Videos and links. We loved the last Tustumena 200 CBS AK video.

  108. SnowBella
    8:59 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Wolfie: Please blur your mom to the quilt.

    B: Would you be willing to make some pie to be eaten under the quilt? Whatever flavor Wolfie’s mom wants. To make sure, I’ll say the dreaded ‘b’ word. Baseball, baseball, baseball!

    Bite!…Beau and I tangle every now and then, but neither of our teeth come together so we can’t really bite and cause open wounds on each other…wheeze!

    Rio: Check Dishlickers SDD. We need to rally and support our resident Wigglebutt.

    Macy: What is worse? Wearing the cone of shame or not being denied licking ooze?

    It is snowing here! It has been coming down all day and hasn’t stopped. I’m glad I worked from home today.

    Lefty went to the vet today. He has a respitory infection and will be on a 10 series of candy (aka antibiotics).

    MacyMinPin: Ouch! Those are some big holes in your little self. I’m glad the vet is on the case.

    RIP General, Jake Berkowitz’s dog. Very sad.

    Earlier when I listed the two scratches in the Quest I missed Kelly Griffin. Three mushers have scratched.

  114. OleyHowlers
    9:30 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Perhaps some would like to donate some $ to Loiuisa Mae, in honor of General?

    It is off to the Bed Ball for us. ‘Night.

    Macy, ouch and Dognabit! Glad you don’t have to wear the cone of shame. The the time Mac tried to come in the dog door with one on was hilarious. It also was destroyed in the process . . Hmm, he may not be as clueless as he likes to appear,

    Mary, have no idea what is going on, and I will check in the morning. Just get yourself under the quilt.

    My hot shower was terrific. I have used arnica on my aching muscles. Since everything is set for the storm I think I will just read and pet dogs for the next two days.


  116. SnowBella

    I have said a prayer for General like I do each time I hear of an animal crossing the Bridge.

    10:29 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Rebecca!…If tonight is Friday then she has tomorrow off…heh!heh!…Powder in Booties??…sniff!…Are you trying to prevent althetes paw for your A-Team?…snort!

    10:50 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Subaru!…Have you guys seen the Subaru commercial with our own lil Sammie and ‘The Guy Who Sells Subarus to Dawgs’?…snort!…It’s hilarious, and little Sammie was truly on point…heh!…Now, why wasn’t this commercial on during the Superbowl?…sniff!

  121. BearSpiritDog
    11:05 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Rio: No, we haven’t seen the Subaru Dog Commercial (surprised Sammie didn’t tell us about it) Do you have a link?

    A Person of Interest is indeed Very strange…cool dog though.

  122. BearSpiritDog
    11:06 pm on February 7th, 2013

    What? This isn’t Friday?


  123. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:08 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Commercial!….I couldn’t tell if lil’ Sammie had her hair extensions on or not…snort!…She looked very natural…heh!

  124. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:09 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Link!…No link, the commercial was on primetime tv …sniff!

    Rio: Someone better tell your friend it is Thursday.

    I did dew claws last nights. I need to pack booties tonight and start repairing dog jackets and harnesses. The holes and shredded areas are mostly courtesy of Twig, Doc, Pancho and Lefty’s handy work.

  126. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:18 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Rebecca!…Not me! I’m not saying “yeep” about it…heh!…(torturer!)

  127. SnowBella
    11:22 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Rio: Torturer! I assured the pups that life gets better.

    Tomorrow we’re hoping to get the truck back from the shop.

  128. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:27 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Dew-Claws!…I don’t know if I have my dew claws or not, but I would remember when I lost them…sniff!

  129. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:35 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Chorkel!…I’m still snickering about that Subaru commerical…wuffle!… In one scene it looked like MagPie is sitting in the chair with her back to the camera and the Guy Who Sells Subarus to Dawgs is talking financing with her…heh!…I bet ole MagPie snuck out and made the commercial while Barb has been laid-up…snuffle!

  130. dawson
    11:38 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Rio: That’s a good commercial. There is another Subaru commercial, “Sled”, with three Huskies as passengers – hilarious.

    Wolfie: Take some time under the quilt to gather strength and courage to travel your road. Prayers for your boy.

  131. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:52 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Beau!…He is upstairs demanding that we come up and go to bed too….heh!…He doesn’t like to sleep in our room alone for some reason lately…grunt!((sigh))….Elementary is ALMOST over…dammit!

  132. SnowBella
    11:55 pm on February 7th, 2013

    Is tomorrow the day we bust Barb out of rehab? If so, the team better rest up and I better get back to work.

    The front is starting to come through. Snow about six hours early. Light though. Had to get up to give Patsy a pain pill. Should I read? Or turn off the iPaw? Hmm, methinks I should not bring the iPaw to bed.

    Ibtriedntoncind moe images of the freezes dry ice cream, but I do not know how to capture images on this machine yet.

    Patsy is snoring alto. Frank is definitely a bass. Rose is soprano. Music here.

    Ok, so TECHNICALLY I started the rumble, but She was coming after my dinner. I have a dainty little mouth and it takes me longer to eat than it does for the chugpugpig.

    My doc said something confusing today. She said that I could have been seriously injured if I was not such a chunky monkey. That had better not mean what it sounds like she said.

  137. Melanie
    1:27 am on February 8th, 2013

    Macy, I’m sure the chunky monkey had to do with ice cream not you. Your tender ears just heard him wrong.

    Rest now and plan revenge. Guilt your mom into giving you treats and not letting you daughter have any.

    Hope to sleep now.

  141. BearSpiritDog
    9:36 am on February 8th, 2013

    Good Morning All

  143. Tupper and Gilly
    10:38 am on February 8th, 2013

    We are hoping that “Nemo” relates to the happy ittle adventurous fish from the movie “Finding Nemo”, and not the brooding, angry, but brilliant mad scientist of the Nautilus.
    Hi everyone.
    Hunkered down here waiting for the big snow. But hoping is passes us by. (on the pawsitive side of things, Mama cancelled our trip to the groomer)
