    “It” arrived safe and sound in our Kindle this morning. Can’t wait to read it.

    Teddy offers up puppy licks and kisses for his blog compatriots Dima, Gus and Tenzing, may each of them be on the road to recovery ASAP. He may be just a little tyke but never underestimate the power of a Ruff Rider!

    Good morning everyone. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the Giant.

    We would like to mention that the prayer last night was another collaboration between us and Rebecca. And thanks to her for posting – we were all out in the backyard sending up prayers for healing for all our friends.

    And now, its back to the work table, while you all are Iggying to your hearts’ content.

  5. Herd of Hounds
    9:45 am on August 13th, 2013

    What do you mean, “Iggying to your heart’s content”? The Daddy Dawg left the Kindle here for mom and she is ready to hit it…she can’t get it to turn on…GAH!!!

    Gah!…My friend took my Kindle to the busy-place…sniff!…I won’t be able to read it until she gets home…grump!

    Bob! Ha ha. It’s good to see you buddy. I’ll be spending next week end with you. Just don’t try to get my treats. He’s Molly’s Mom’s dog.

    The Iggy Chronicles is on my Kindle!

    Happy birthday AJ.

    Good morning all. (Sharon: Which Kindle do you have? The power switch is on the bottom right. On the Kindle Fire it’s a button to push; on earlier Kindles it’s a small bar that you push to the right.)

    B: Mom is just tech stupid sometimes. She thought the instructions,”Turn it on” meant to say ” I love you” to it…

    10:04 am on August 13th, 2013

    B: Honestly, she couldn’t find the button…:(

    OMD, two more kinds of Butterflies came to the butterfly bush this a m . A large brown and orange ish and a smaller (tho bigger than a skipper) that is brown/orange with a white blob at the back of the wing, This is fun! Looked at one point that Mrs. Hummer and a butterfly were jockeying for the blossom.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE GIANT!!! May you enjoy every BITE of ice cream cake.

    The Iggy Chronicles Volume I arrives on our Kindles. HURRAY!!!

    It’s a Sunny Morning. We saw one Shooting Star across the evening sky last night.

    Good Tuesday (Hounds, What Kind of Tuesday is it?) to Everyone.

    I read Iggy before I got out of bed this morning. I had highlighted two sentences that reminded me of YSAS when he was young. As he is ADHD – emphasis on the H – it sometimes seems that he and Chet are related.

    Unforunately, the highlighted area disappeared.
    Fortunately,I get to read that wonderful story again to find those sentences!

    Good Iggy Morning, i’ll be gone for awhile. I am taking three of the Pack for a car ride. They are bored.

    Awww, forget about that!
    It’s your Birthday. Do what you want!

    BSD: Make it a tempting Tuesday.

    Melanie and Grace: Love the “lips” 🙂

    10:46 am on August 13th, 2013

    Boy, I could have so much fun with Bob. If he ever needs a new home, send him to me.

    Happy Birthday to AJ, our favorite musher!

    We will read the Iggy story later in the day because we don’t want any interruptions while reading it.

    Good Morning All

    11:00 am on August 13th, 2013

    Sammie: Bob is MollysMom’s new dog? Did I miss something?
    What a charmer! Do tell us more.
    Riö: I think you are right about the realtor yesterday…it was obviously a clever ploy to get your friend’s mother to list her house with them.

  19. Mollypop's Mom
    11:39 am on August 13th, 2013

    Masquers – Bob is my new dog. He’s very well behaved, a good companion, and he does NOT want to visit Siber-H.

  20. B. Stover
    11:46 am on August 13th, 2013

    Mollypop’s Mom: Bob doesn’t need to go out for walks either does he….

  21. Herd of Hounds
    12:38 pm on August 13th, 2013

    B: Powers of observation and retention re: Bob. How many others have seen him?

  22. Wookie's Dad
    1:21 pm on August 13th, 2013

    An early photo of Teddy. Because we do not plan on showing him, this is probably the only time that this pose would ever be struck. I refer to it as his “glam shot,” and it was taken by the breeder at about 7 weeks (so it was a couple of days before we got him). Note the brown collar in front (he was then known simply as as Mr. Brown), and the substance on the spoon is peanut butter.

  23. Mollypop's Mom
    1:24 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Finished Iggy! Loved it and then, of course, want more.

  24. Masquers
    1:24 pm on August 13th, 2013

    B & MollysMom: What about Bob…thought there was something a bit unusual about him.
    I guess he won’t be blogging anytime soon. Heh.

  25. BearSpiritDog
    1:44 pm on August 13th, 2013

    MollyPop’s Mom, B, Hounds: Leave it up to a Kat to Jump to Conclusions.

    Ruff Rider Teddy! We want more, More, MORE.

  26. Macy's mom
    1:47 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Finished Iggy, want more. HBD Giant!

    Do any of you know anything about NAIDs (Native American Indian Dog breed)? One of Mom’s cousins is looking at getting one mixed with Sibe, and asked Mom about them. This woman grew up with a Sibe.

  28. dawson
    2:36 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Happy Birthday AJ, and many more.

    Meashka: How’s Dima today?

    BooBear: Thinking of Gus and how many lives he’s had already…hoping for one more at least.

    And Tensing…my favorite pillow…be better.

    I wonder where in Alaska Blue Cat is today and hope fun and adventure is happening.

    I am going to read about Iggy now!

  29. dawson
    2:38 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Macy: I had something to say to MacyMinPin but it has disappeared from my brain. Shoot.

  30. BooBear
    3:05 pm on August 13th, 2013

    I certainly hope Gus feels better soon. This responsibility of posting on my own is overwhelming!!

    I love the picture of Teddy, the show dog. Bet he is about twice that size now.

    MPM, SiberH volunteering to dog sit for you! Why do you think that would be a problem. SiberH will probably go swimming with him too…NOT!

    Meashka, when is Dima’s surgery?

  31. Meashka
    3:15 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Dima’s surgery is at noon tomorrow.
    How is Gus? Did he eat?

  32. Melanie
    3:25 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Meashka, try the link at the end. Pretty dogs, highly intellgent, good with livestock and children. Doesn’t mention chickens.

    BSD, Thank Dog for naps. Had the perfect storm of exhaustion. A nap later? Feeling mich better.

    I was introduced to Bob a few days ago. He is a good model.

    As of last night, everyone who has sent me photos should now have them back. If you sent them today? I haven’t been on email yet. 🙂

    Hope all that are sick, tired, or bored get to bbe feeling tip-top.

    ************** BIRTHDAY ANNOUNCEMENT ****************
    Hear Ye!…snort!….Hear Ye!….The Pugs of Middle Earth want to wish AJ the Giant a most Wonderful Birthday today, August 13, 2013….snorkel!….May he long reign in Willow, Alaska with Princess Rebecca and live amongst the wild beasts and care for his teammates forever and ever!….wheeze!…. Long Live AJ The Giant!….Woooo!

  35. Melanie
    3:57 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Love that, Rió!

    Teddy, it is obvious that you would take the confirmation field by storm.
    As long as PB was involved.

    I am glad you are going to be an Ambassador for your breed. Much more fun, and more tummies. (Also good for 00 work)

  36. BearSpiritDog
    3:57 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Rio: The Dogs of Middle Earth? Impressive!

    Melanie: Nap Time…You just reminded me…going to check out the link first.

    SnowBella, Meashka & BooBear: Please keep us updated. Thinking of you all with Love in Our Hearts.

  37. Rose
    4:01 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Wookie’s Dad:

    Would you and your wife adopt me so I can come live with Teddy? HE is just the most adorable thing ever!!!

  38. Rose
    4:03 pm on August 13th, 2013

    My heart is with all the four-leggeds and two-leegeds who are ailing.

  39. Meashka
    4:52 pm on August 13th, 2013

    I also found that link, Melanie. Thanks. They sound like nice dogs, but I’m wondering if any of you have any persnal knowledge of that breed. For sure, they can’t be as good as Sibes, but these guys are mixed with some of our guys so there is hope. 🙂

  40. dawson
    5:18 pm on August 13th, 2013

    I think I see a bit of a resemblance between Bob and Teddy. They are both awfully fuzzy and good looking.

    Rio: I thought trees were where you were supposed to urinate. You should’ve been busted for urinating on a house plant.
    Loved the birthday greeting to the Giant from the Pugs of Middle Earth.

    I am glad that Iggy got out of the house for awhile and what an adventure he had. I hope he is back home with Mr. & Mrs. Parsons now getting tummies.

  41. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:26 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Iggy!…PLEASE! Do not give away any spoilers about Iggy’s big adventure…sniff!….I Have not been able to read it yet….grump!

    I’m named after Chet’s best pal, but unlike Chet’s Iggy I don’t have any chronicles. This makes me worrit. What if I lost them? What if my brothers ate them? Do you need to turn them in like a library book? I don’t have money to pay any fines and Belle Starr has already ‘splained to me that the wages of sin are misleading. Junior says he’ll help me find my chronicles as soon as he finds his eyebrows. Great! —now, there is something else I’m supposed to have and don’t know where they’re hiding.

  47. dawson
    6:27 pm on August 13th, 2013

    MacyMinPin: That was it! I loved the 1957 Liberty stamp you sent me. It is super nice as is the postmark of Georgetown Texas from back in the days when they took pride in making the postmarks legible.

    I also got envelopes back from Gus & BooBear (very nice set of three flag stamps, equality, liberty and freedom), Linda the Lurker (a whole bunch of stamped envelopes), Snowhook Kennels (head bumps). I really liked BStover’s Fort Sumpter stamp and Rose’s cartoon stamp. And Spencer Quinn’s forever stamp with the windmill postmark. Heh, heh. Fun, fun, fun.

  48. Dima
    6:34 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Dear SQ, I only just started reading TICV1 and already I am feeling better. Thank you! IGGY is the best!!! Long live Iggy!

  49. B. Stover
    6:37 pm on August 13th, 2013

    I’m not going to read the Iggy Chronicles until later and I’m going to read it slowly so please no spoilers.

  50. Masquers
    6:49 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Same here…waiting to read about Iggy tonight…maybe more than once.

  51. Wose
    7:07 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Dawson, I was wondering if you liked my stamp. That is from the movie “UP”. I love that movie!

    MollyPop’s Mom, Is Bob going to Alaska with you? Certainly you would be able to carry him on board .

    RIO! Loved your birthday message to the Giant!!

    Nook question- Grizz is in the middle of reading a book on my nook. However, I have another nook. If I want to read about Iggy’s Chronicles, will it make Grizz’s nook lose his place in his book?

    Belle Starr: Are you ready with your sparkles for the Giant’s cake? Do you have your pink sparkly collar on, or did your sprite-pixie two- legged steal it to wear as a bracelet? Will you send pictures? Pretty please? With sparkles on top ?

  52. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:09 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Dawson!…My friend felt bad about how she sent back your stamp in Staff’s little box, so she tried to buy some limited edition stamps last weekend just for you….snort!….The little post office was all sold out though…grunt!

  53. Siber-H
    7:25 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Oh dawg, I just sent Dawson’s envelope back to her like it arrived in my mailbox. Was I suppose to do something special with a stamp?
    We don’t have any stamps except the boring Liberty stamp.

  54. Barb & Maggie
    8:00 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Hello everyone. We have been gone all day, and are just getting ready for dinner. Will be back tomorrow.

    Hope all are well. Happy Birthday to the Giant. Sorry we have been absent all day.

  55. B. Stover
    8:15 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Siber-H: No, you did not need to do anything special. I just used the Fort Sumpter stamps that I had.

  56. Siber-H
    8:23 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Stover, Thanks

  57. BooBear
    8:35 pm on August 13th, 2013

    BooBear here. Gus is eating very little, but at least something. His eyes are still alert and Mom and Dad are hopeful that he will make another comeback. We think he is only on his 6th or 7th life so he should be good for it. Y’all keep the pawsitive thoughts and prayers coming.

    Maggie, now that Barb is planning to go north to Alaska, is she still planning on the trip to Fort Worth? She had mentioned the other day that they were all having 2nd thoughts about the wedding trip.

    Snowbella, Mom sent in her auction items this morning. Please let us know if you received them okay when you get a free minute (like you ever have one of those.)

    Mom will be reading the Iggy story after America’s Got Talent tonight. Can’t wait!

  58. BooBear
    8:38 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Dima, hang in there !! We will be saying special prayers tomorrow at noon. Are y’all central or eastern time zone?

  59. Herd of Hounds
    8:42 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Dima & family: We are keeping you ALL close to our hearts over the next couple of days. Dog bless.

  60. Siber-H
    8:43 pm on August 13th, 2013

    BooBear, Pawsitive thoughts for little Gus. We will also be saying special prayers at 10 for Dima. He is in the Eastern Time Zone.

  61. Herd of Hounds
    8:59 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Read ICV1 🙂 Eys hurt after using K-reader.

    Going early, nighty night

  62. Barb & Maggie
    9:04 pm on August 13th, 2013

    BooBear, There is no way Barb can go to Alaska and not go to Texas. Her sister will never speak to her again. So therefore, she will be dipping deep into her retirement fund this next 6 months. She will still be planning to meet you and Macy’s mom in November, if that is OK.

  63. Masquers
    9:18 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Nooooo…my Kindle is not charged!

  64. dawson
    9:22 pm on August 13th, 2013

    SiberH: Nothing special was needed on the envelopes sent back to me. I love having all the postmarks from youse Plunderers. Except Rio, but I might have a Rio postmark from packages his friend has sent me.

    Rio: I haven’t opened Staff’s package from you because she is coming here later in the month to see me before I head back up North.

  65. BearSpiritDog
    9:48 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Gus, Dima & Tenz you are in our Prayers.

  66. Staff
    10:00 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Oh Dawson, Open the package you silly sister.

  67. Melanie
    10:01 pm on August 13th, 2013

    I think I’m going to be the last one to get this envelope sent to Dawson. sigh . .

    I am goint to sleep now hoping that oI feel better in the morning.

    Move over just a tad Dima. Oh, thanks Tenzing, I will hse you as a pillow. Gus, do you like to sleep on people’s chests and smell their breath? Feel free . .

    10:03 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Gosh, what a busy blog this has been! First, Bella became a darling little pixie, the quilt is covering many hurting souls, the Iggy Chronicals arrived, and Mollypop’s mom got a new dog. Whew. The prayers were lovely last night, even if they did become a bit blurry.

    Take care, all. Sending love and light from the foothills of the Sierra.

  69. SnowBella
    10:17 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Thank you to all youse for the birthday wishes for the Giant. He left this morning to go back to work. We celebrated his birthday over the past weekend while he was home. The celebrations included a date—lunch and a matinee—and an ice cream cake. His favorite. I gave him a new chore coat which I found at 75% at the end of last season. I couldn’t wait to give it to him.

    Gus&BooBear: SDD checked. Auction items recieved. Thanks!

    Dima: Tenzing is insisting on being with you for your surgery tomorrow. He wants to make sure the quilt is covering despite the tubes and whatnots. Luna is going to drop Belle Starr off to Smooch Wose and then blur to youse to help Kat with smooching your mama. Katdog and Princess Sam, Luna wants to know if you’re available to help BooBear with all things smooch?

    Rio: Please thank the pugs of Middle Earth and for sharing your pugshot from days gone by.

    MPM: Bob! I woner if Bob could teach Pancho and Lefty some manners.

  70. Dogomine
    10:31 pm on August 13th, 2013

    10:32 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Finally!…Someone here finally fixed my Tulo Bobblehead…snort!…I was stressing out about this, let me tell youse guys…sniff!…She even took a really bad photo of a job well-done…grunt!…Bonus! You all get a glimpse of some of the pieces and parts of the Auction Item project that is obviously not done yet…wheeze!…Talk about stressful (her not me!)…heh!…He really looks like Tulo from this angle – just ask SiberH!

  72. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:13 pm on August 13th, 2013

    Mindless!….So whenever my friend needs to turn her brain and all common-sensory perceptions off!off!off!…snort!…We turn on the latest episode of “Siberia”…heh!heh!heh!heh!…Even then, what a complete joke. Yet, there is that lure of how far will they go to sell this thing…chorkel!

  75. Staff
    11:48 pm on August 13th, 2013

    And what time for Central?

  76. SnowBella
    12:01 am on August 14th, 2013

    If I remember correctly prayers are needed tomorrow at 12pm Dima Time. Staff, I think that means 11am for you, 10am for Rio and Siber to kick in their pug prayers. Wolfie, you have it right at 9am your time and CHobbit and I will join in at the crack of 8am. Wheeze! That’s a lot of o’clocks following a 12 hour day. Nighty noodles.

    Before I forget, that Grace knows how to partay!

  77. c.hobbit
    12:06 am on August 14th, 2013
