Spence promised the audience in Savannah that he’d post the beautiful quilt the Plunderers made for him, so here it is.

Welcome Ms. Sienna (with Santa). Callie Clever from SC, please try uploading again.

    Welcome back, Spencer (are you back on the Cape yet?) Hello to all. And a Big Welcome to all of Chet’s new friends from Savannah! Please feel free to join us here for all of the fun on the blog!

    Good Morning OHs! Hope you are all feeling tip-top by now.

    Welcome back from your trip Spence. Hope you had a fun time! Why does Book TV never feature fiction authors? They have some non-fiction writers on their schedule for this weekend from the Savannah Book Festival. 🙁

    That quilt is quite beautiful!

    Dawson: Let me know when the official left-over dollar tally comes from Rebecca. If we can’t gather up enough funds for a checkpoint, maybe we can ship Rebecca some cheesecake! :^)

    Rio’s idea from last night’s blog was a good one.

    Welcome back Spence! And welcome to everyone from Savannah. (My dad was born in Savannah and it’s a beautiful town!)

    Rebecca announced last night that all of the checkpoints have been sponsored. Go Snowhook!!

    Good morning all.

    WoooHooo, Snowhook!!!!

    Good morning, B. It’s always nice to start off the day with good news!

    Love the Golinka and Storyteller checkpoint!

    Hi Savannah!

    Good Morning All.

    It’s not often that I tear up at sports stories, but this one got me today.

    Good morning all. Welcome home Spence. Good article by Linda Sickler about Spence and the C & B series.

    Love our quilt. Fun to see it again. Notice how we have developed our own language? Going under the quilt, for instance.

    Oley, Did your mama see our POTUS singing the blues this morning? What a hoot! Love that guy!

  7. OleyHowlers
    9:15 am on February 22nd, 2012

    Melanie, thanks for posting that article. That was a beautiful story, and we are tearing up also.
    Can’t believe all checkpoints sponsored!!!! WOO HOO!!!! Great job to all!
    Barb and Maggie, we missed that, but we will go in search now.

    Maggie, Mom was dancing and swinging to all those Blues performers (her fav was at the end tho). Thanks for calling her attention to that event.

    Thanks, Melanie, for the basketball story. That coach is quite a guy. I came on after the quilt and am happy to see it again. The news is good about the checkpoints. What do we have before the beginning of the race, about 10 days? We are really getting excited and anxious to follow it. Welcome home, Spence. I hope you enjoyed Savannah as much as I have on my visits there. It truly is a beautiful city. I bet you can’t tell what I’m doing in this photograph.

    9:38 am on February 22nd, 2012

    Oley, One would think being in the company of Mick and B.B. would be a little intimidating! Did you see the look on Michelle’s face? It was like, Oh no, here we go again.” We especially liked the shout-out to Chicago!

    Hope thing go smoothly today at the The Pack’s place.

    We missed the Golinka and Storyteller checkpoints. Who sponsored those two?

    Friends!….Friends of Snowhook sponsored The Golinka checkpoint…snort!… Read every word of Rebecca’s post last night and you will understand…grunt!

    Checkpoints!…. Golly! When I started campaigning for Checkpoints to be sponsored I never ever imagined that we could get them ALL sponsored….Wow!… This almost makes me speechless, but not quite…heh!…Now I have to skip and spin and twirl and skip and spin and twirl…wooooooooooo!

    There is a slide show of the quilt squares on Dishlickers.

  14. Tyb
    10:17 am on February 22nd, 2012

    Thanks for the hint to check the quilt on Dishlickers. I’m embarrassed to say that I can’t find Dishlickers. I thought I had it in my bookmarks, but I don’t. If I google dishlicker, I get way too many choices and don’t know which one to choose. I tried three and didn’t get the right one. A bit of help please.

    A quilt slide show on Dishlickers? Cool.
    Spence has been bragging about us in Savannah? Way cool.
    A Golinka and the Storyteller checkpoint? All checkpoints sponsored? Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious!

  17. Barb & Maggie
    10:50 am on February 22nd, 2012

    Rio, When we signed off last night there were about 74 posts, so guess we didn’t go back and read the last few, which is probably when Rebecca posted. Last one we read, she was part way home. SORRY!

    Rio, we did watch Parenthood last night, and it was a real tear-jerker. That is one of our favs. Next week is the season final show. Wondering what will happen with the baby. We are happy about some of the other happenings on the show, especially for Crosby.

  18. Riö – The Evil Pug

    SiberH!…When you come in from your digging project, could you check your SDD?…sniff!

  19. Riö – The Evil Pug
    10:55 am on February 22nd, 2012

    Parenthood!…Don’t tell me how Parenthood ended!…grunt!…We had to go upstairs early and have not seen the ending yet because her mother does not know how to shut her bedroom door to keep Beau out…grumble!

  20. OleyHowlers
    10:59 am on February 22nd, 2012

    Is everyone up-to-date on Downton Abby? We are going to miss it now that the season is over. What a great ending!

  21. BearSpiritDog
    11:08 am on February 22nd, 2012

    Every day it’s a new HURRAY!
    All the checkpoints sponsored!!!
    A special checkpoint for Golinka!!!
    Spence showed the quilt in Savannah!!!

    We know there are more, but can’t see through the tears of joy.
    Off to get another box of kleenex for Nana.
    BBL (sniff)

  23. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:21 am on February 22nd, 2012


    Abby!…We have not seen the second season of Dowtown Abby yet…grunt!…She is waiting for the DVD to come out I guess..wuffle!

  24. B.Stover
    11:52 am on February 22nd, 2012

    Rio: The dvd of the second season of Downton is already out in the original UK edition. Go to Amazon.

  25. B.Stover
    11:56 am on February 22nd, 2012

    TYB: Check your email.

    Map!….Here is an updated map of the Northern Route that AJ and the A-Team will be running…snort! …With all the Checkpoints and All the Sponsors!…wuffle!

  27. Gus and BooBear
    11:58 am on February 22nd, 2012

    Just caught up on yesterday’s posts!! Wow!! Great job guys and, thank you, Spence, for jumping in and for the shout out about the quilt. We donated several times, but special kudos to the plunderers that kept us going.

    Haven’t had a chance to check all the links, stories, and videos yet (don’t get the full effect on the little phone) but will check everything out later.

    Tyb, Dishlickers isn’t a website but a yahoo address. I don’t have your email address or I would send you the password. Mollypop’s Mom can probably help.

    Later, guys!!

  28. Gus and BooBear
    12:01 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Rio, map looks great. Again I need the big computer to really see it. Can u post it on dishlickers? Mom can access that at work!

  29. Basil and Sage
    12:04 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    What the heck is going on here? Mama finally came out of her clay room. She said she would give us crunchies as soon as she checked in on the blog etc. Next thing we know, her eyes got real big, then she started crying. But she says she’s happy! Why do two leggeds cry when they are happy? You don’t hear us Kats yowling when WE’RE happy. Ok, so we purr. That’s different.
    Anyway whatever you all did, Mama is very honored and touched and she says that she is so happy Melanie introduced her to first Chet and Bernie and then to the blog. The Plunderers hold a special place in her heart.
    We are all thrilled that Snowhook is so well sponsored and cared for. And she still sniffling a little, but she says we need to say thank you for this honor. We just want her to stop sniffling and remember that she promised us CRUNCHIES!! and we want them NOW!

  30. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:07 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Abby!…I wonder if Netflix will carry that version of season 2 of Dowtown Abby?…wuffle!…My friend will check when she finally gets home from the busyish-place…sniff!

  31. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:16 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Map!…The Map is out on Dishlickers!…snort!

  32. B.Stover
    12:19 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Gus&BooBear: I gave TYB the info on Dishlickers.

  33. Tyb
    12:25 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Thanks all of you for helping me with dishlickers. I got to the email site, but can’t find the slideshow of the quilt.
    Tell your friend to google Downton Abbey. That will take her to the ABC site which
    will enable her to watch all of the episodes of Downtown Abbey’s second season.
    I too will miss the show and am looking forward to seeing it again in the fall.

  34. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:28 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Mr.Tibbs!…Check your SDD ASAP…gruff!

  35. Tyb
    12:30 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    At 10:04 you posted that there is a slide show of the quilt on Dishlickers. That is what I’m looking for. I was able with help from all of you to get to the email for dishlickers, but don’t know where to go from there to see the slideshow.

  36. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:31 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Mr.Tibbs!…My computer here at home sucks so I cannot watch shows and movies on it…snort!…I’m sure it would explode if I even tried…grunt!…We will get the DVD’s one way or another at one time or another…sniff!

    Computer!…I did over hear her mother saying she was going to buy my friend a new laptop for her birthday…yipppeeee!…Mum’s the word…heh!

  37. OleyHowlers
    12:34 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Tyb, we think that we may have to wait until next January for the next season of Downton Abby. Hope we’re wrong, but the PBS site said that this year’s season ran for 7 weeks, beginning in January.

  38. Tyb
    12:44 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. Finally with all of your help, I was able to access the quilt pictures and must say that I’m impressed. I’ve heard so much about the quilt and know it’s story, but this is the first time I’ve had a chance to see it in detail. I AM impressed. It is strikingly beautiful.

  39. dawson
    12:47 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Tyb: From the dishlickers email site you click on “Chet the Dog Quilt” on the left hand side under “Folders” heading.
    Then click on photos
    Then click on slide show.

    Coach and Bev sponsored Rohn! Hurrah for Coach and Bev! See you on the Trail! Go Snowhook Doggies!

  40. dawson
    12:56 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Oh yeah! Duh!
    Most important message!
    There was a little left-over money from our over-enthusiatic checkpoint donaters the past couple of days and so…a retiree checkpoint was asked for and received with a special “fixed-income” rate. So B.Stover, Golinka, Dan and Zoe, moi, and anyone else who qualifies including lurkers are covered by this checkpoint. Go Retire-ees! Go Snowhook! Thank you Rebecca!

  41. Melanie
    1:03 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Waiting mode. YSAS and Hamlet have left for the big city. My sister is down getting Dan. Lots of paperwork involved. House is all set.

    Wonder if there’s time for a nap?

    Think I’ll find a nice bit of sunshine …

  42. BearSpiritDog
    1:10 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Heh, heh. I think TYB has all the information he will ever need with all the help from moi and youse

    Finally got around to posting the decals and magnets info on dishlickers also. Wolfie is standing by!

    O.Howlers: We have watched all the episodes of Downton Abbey Season 2 except the season finale. Yes, whatever will we do until the start of Season 3!
    Netflix takes forever to come out with the DVDs. Rio, you probably won’t see in their line-up of new shows until sometime next year. We have been watching Season 3 on PBS online, although not sure how many are available…hopefully all.
    Excellent, Excellent show!!!

    Dawson: Retirees…C.Harris & Nana too!

  43. OleyHowlers
    1:11 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Dawson, we love the idea of a “Retirees” checkpoint. Now Shiek feels included. 🙂

  44. Masquers
    1:16 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Heh! Tyb, when I saw your picture at the computer this morning, it reminded me of this old New Yorker cartoon.

  45. Siber-H
    1:22 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    HOME RUN!! All the checkpoints are sponsored! Way to go guys!!
    We love that one is dedicated to Golinka and Leonard.

    Commander Rio, Report completed…check your SDD.

    It is good to see the quilt again and my dirty toys, some of which went missing shortly after that photo.

  46. dawson
    1:25 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Oh Yeah!
    C.Harris, too! And Nana and we are honored by the presence of Shiek! This retire-ee (B – how do you spell that word?) cannot twirl, I might injure myself so, I am jiggling and wiggling instead!

    Thinking of Dan and the “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” return.

    Golinka: I know you have a big show coming up but don’t forget to breathe. Golinka first, pots second.

  47. Mollypop's Mom
    1:25 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    I am also retired. Twice even. I took early retirement from EDS (now HP) and the final one from Ingram Micro.

    Tyb’s Dad has retired even more times.

  48. Masquers
    1:26 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Dawson: Although Mom says she won’t be “retired” anytime soon, (only from the dreaded nine to five routine) she likes your “fixed income rate”.
    Another day of surprises and treats – for the dawgs, kats and two-leggeds alike. Will Plunderer Wonders ever cease? I think not!
    A Big Welcome Home to Dan!!!

  49. Siber-H
    1:26 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    That is funny, Masquers, especially when one thinks about this blog. Spence knows there are real dogs and kats posting here, but he can’t tell anyone that for fear of being put away.

  50. dawson
    1:28 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Oh yeah!
    Mollypop’s Mom and Tyb! Hurrah for the Retiree’s. Now everyone wants to be one!
    Kaltag or Bust! Go Snowhook!

  51. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:43 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Spencer!…”put away”…heh!snort!…Thats funny.

  52. B.Stover
    1:49 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    I was wondering about the name, “Retirees'” checkpoint. How cool!

  53. Snowhook Bella
    1:59 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Bridger and Tenzing want to be included in the retirees’ checkpoint. Works for me. Luna and Belle Starr also want to be included in the checkpoint. What? They’ve never worked a day in their lives.

    And, since no one has booed me off the stage, yet, I have another announcement to make. Make that two. One, since I’ve spent a good deal of time at the podium since last night, I’m leaving a stash of treats. Cheesecake is in the refridgerated compartment, and Zingers and Slim Jims are on the bottom shelf. Two: I’ve been sitting on a secret, but I didn’t want to count chickens or chicken-ladies (hi, Barb) before they hatched. You remember that email we received from a casting director many months ago that was followed up with news that we were chosen for the demo reel they’d shop around to networks? Well, a network picked up the show and want to feature AJ in the program. It is a one episode documentary on mushing. We just got off a conference call with the casting director and a members of the production company.

  54. Snowhook Bella
    2:01 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Melanie: Happy hearts for Dan’s return! Take care of him, take care of yourself.

    If Spence were put away, I suspect we’d hatch a plan to bust him out. Sooner or later. Probably later, because we’d first have to hatch a plan to bust Rio out of his yard.

  55. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:04 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    GASP!…Now I am speechless!…gurgle!

  56. Barb & Maggie
    2:05 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Dawson, Barb is also retired from her career job as insurance/financial agent. Her 2 days a week at CLL make her semi-retired I suppose. Hopefully she will retire from that one and move this summer.

  57. Siber-H
    2:11 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    WOO WOO Rebecca!! This is so cool! Congratulations to Snowhook!

    I hope those of us in the lower 48 will get to see it. Tell them to sell dvds of it…better, yet, Snowhook should sell dvds of it.

  58. Barb & Maggie
    2:26 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Rebecca, That is wonderful news! Can’t wait to see it!

    Meantime, anxious to hear about Dan’s homecoming!

  59. OleyHowlers
    2:38 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Great news, Rebecca. When will they be filming? Hopefully Post-Race.

    We also are anxiously awaiting word from Melanie about Dan’s return. Hope all is going well.

  60. Barb & Maggie
    2:39 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Well, after Rio’s severe admonishment, we went back and read the posts we missed last night. See that we missed a biggy! Now we understand the Golinka and Storyteller dedication, and I must say, they deserve the recognition.

    Barb is off to get her hair cut. Me, I just get a good brushing. My winter coat is shedding out, and I am proud to say that this morning there was soft, nose-tickling hair flying everywhere!

  61. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:50 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Dogumentary!….If that producer and director were smart they would take the film crew to the beginning of the Race this year to capture AJ the Giant and then again to the end of the Race…heh!…Wooooooo!

    Rebecca!…Do you know any more details besides what you told us?…heh!…Spill yer guts little lady!

  62. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:54 pm on February 22nd, 2012


    Speechless!….Suddenly I’m not speechless anymore!…chorkel!….Rebecca, did you tell them on the conference call about ALL of AJ the Giant’s Iditarod Checkpoints being sponsored by…..ahem!… US! US! US!?…wheeze!

  63. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    2:57 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Bella, what awesome news!

  64. dawson
    2:58 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Wiggle, jiggle! My D-cups (not!) runneth over! I’d given up on those people! That’s fantastic news.

    Barb and Maggie: Semi-retireds count.

  65. Melanie
    3:01 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Hip HIp Hurrah for the TV Stah!

    Dan is home safe. After all the proofing of the house for him and him being here last week? He thought we were going to keep him in one room.

    I explained that he’d had enough of one room. He has two rooms that can be dog free when he needs it and the living room with everyone.

    He’s now taking a nap!

    (Now how am I going to explain this to YSAS that AJ is going to be a feature before him?)

  66. OleyHowlers
    3:02 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Dawson, Mom wants us to ask if “just plain tireds” count for that checkpoint?

  67. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:05 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Clarkson!….Hey, maybe Clarkson will get to play AJ the Giant when they make a Movie about his life and times with Rebecca and the Plunderers…heh!chorkle!…choke!gasp!…I’m so excited I can’t breath!…wheeze!

  68. Snowhook Bella
    3:09 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    First, Rio spills the beans a couple of weeks ago and now he wants me to spill my guts. I better get a mop.

    What do I know? They will be up here next week to begin filming. They plan to capture the vet checks, musher’s banquet, the Ceremonial start and the re-start. I don’t know if they will be on the trail. It is a long race and a lot to pack into one episode. AJ is the feature which means I don’t have to do anything—ha! They did say they wanted about an hour with each of us to do interiews. We invited them out to the kennel for a ride.

    Rio: The conference call was about logistics. Who will be where, when. What happens on what day. It was the first time we’ve spoken to anyone other than the casting director. Will I mention the Plunderers in my interview?—without a doubt.

    We got the call a few days ago, but I didn’t want to say anything in case something fell through. The call today made it seem more real.

    Dawson: I think there are foundations that can help with the wiggling, giggling and increasing cup size. I almost snorted root beer from my nose when I read your comment.

  69. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:15 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Awsome!…Dawson!…Little did we know!…heh!chorkel!


  70. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:17 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Rebecca!…I hope you mention Chet and Bernie too!…snorkel!…Because, seriously we would not be here without those guys…heh!

  71. Snowhook Bella
    3:23 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Rio: I even mentioned Chet and Bernie and the plunderers in the second audition tape they requested!

    I’m glad to hear Dan will have the run of two and half rooms. Welcome home, Dan the man!

  72. Masquers
    3:25 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Folks retire at different times and ages. Some retire from one job to go to something they love to do (Golinka, Tyb), others begin a whole new career (ie: retire at 40 from the military and start a business). Aarp accepts members beginning at age 50.

    Siber: Fear of being put away…As would we all! snicker

    Gasp and THE BIG BLOG NEWS continues with Rebecca’s announcement of the filming of AJ!!! Go Kat Go! We are on a roll!!! (roll’n, roll’n, roll’n to the finish line)

  73. Melanie
    3:40 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Just told YSAS about AJ and Rebecca. He says, “Godspeed!”

    So AJ and Rebecca, have a wonderful time and not only Godspeed, but race, race, race!!

  74. BearSpiritDog
    3:46 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Tyb, a familiar FOC relaxing at the top…reminding us of the “tough life” he fell into…..poor guy. That all of us guys should be so lucky.

    Barb&Magpie: We think it is good to feel one is contributing to the economy, CLL type jobs notwithstanding, but know Barb is eagerly awaiting that fine day she can join Favorite Son and DIL at the bike shop.

  75. B.Stover
    3:54 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    That is wonderful Rebecca!

  76. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:56 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Retire!…My friend says it will be a Cold Day In Hell before she can retire…grunt!…There is nothing more she wants than to not have to go into the busyish-place every morning. Although, the prospect of sticking around here with us and her mother all day long every single day isn’t very exciting either…gruffle!

  77. Melanie
    4:01 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Riö, depending on the type of computer your friend MIGHT get from her mother (when is her birthday by the way? I know your’s in April) you and she could watch stuff on line!

  78. Riö – The Evil Pug

    Welcome Home, Dan!!!

    I’m so excited I may take up twirling. I usually just run laps.
    Rebecca can write a book about all of this someday.

    Oley-Howlers: Just plain tireds count.

    Snowhook Bella: Of course Bridger and Tenzing, but Luna and Belle Starr? Oh well, why not? They qualify under the too cute to work clause.

    Rio: You would’ve been part of that documentary if you went up to Alaska!

  81. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:37 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Dawson!…I doubt it….grunt!…Sounds like it is a Dogumentary about Mushers or Mushing or maybe just Mush, not about Friends of Mushers *FOM!…heh!

  82. Siber-H

    Our favorite Lurker!
    Linda is also a Retiree. Bev and Coach are with us as well.

    What is the casting director about? Is AJ not going to play himself? Should YSAS be standing by, just in case?

    4:53 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Good one Rio!

    Little flickers as the power can’t decide if it will stay on or go off. The North wind is howling through the trees, but the sun is out.

  86. Snowhook Bella
    4:56 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    The film crew will film both starts of the race, so if Rio was here, he might appear on camera in the background. Umm, Rio, if you can sneak out of your yard, book a flight north to Alaska, I’ll pick you up at the airport. We can send your friend and Beau a postcard.

    We’ve been watching the Insider documentaries on DVD the past few evenings. My pink Kromer made an appearance or two in the background of the 2010 video.

  87. Tyb
    5:42 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    That’s great news Rebecca. Congratulations! I hope we get to see the film.

  88. Barb & Maggie
    5:44 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Rebecca, Can you tell us who is doing the doc, and where it is likely to be shown? Will it be on NATGEO or Discovery, or Animal Planet, or some channel like that? Is it something that one will be able to purchase? Don’t know how much you know yet, and how much you are allowed to tell.

    Barb just go back home from her “hair cut”. Good thing she is not going anywhere important for the next few weeks, because it is SHORT! She said it is a good thing it grows fast, because OMD!

    Dawson, speaking of double Ds, there was a woman they showed on The Today Show who boasts a pair of KKs. She has had 22 surgeries to increase her cup size, and wants to get to MMs. She is in the Guinness Book. Now I ask you WHY? She obviously likes publicity, but I bet she can’t go horseback riding, or dog racing! What a nutter!

    Since Mollypop’s mom mentioned my dad’s multiple retirements I’ve been wondering how he’s retired so many times in one lifetime. I think I figured it out. His first initial is M. and he goes by his middle name. I think the M. might stand for Methuselah.

  90. Jasper the Poodle
    5:50 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Greetings Plunderers and Savannah-ite newbies from the middle of the mitten. I am feeling perkier and perkier recovering from the dreaded v*e*t and the tooth cleaning from hell that turned out with all my teeth gone. I keep taking all my rope toys to mom but she refuses to play tug with me. She tells me that fetch is my game for another week or two. Sigh. I want to tug and bite with the teeth I have left. I’ve got antibiotics and soft food for about 4 more days. Mom’s feeding me Three Dog Bakery yumminess in a pouch. Loving the soft food. Mmmmmmm.

    So happy to hear that Dan is back home and napping. I like a good nap at home too.

    Congratulations to Snow Hook, both for the funding and the dogumentary.

    Nice seeing the quilt again. Mom is total fail with the dishlicker thingy. Can someone take pity and email my mom with the instructions how to find the dishlicker site? Me? I’m off for a nap.

  91. dawson
    6:06 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Jasper: It’s our Yahoo mail account, not really a site. If you email me your address I’d send you the password.
    Glad to hear you are feeling better and getting some yummy food. I have your Auntie in my prayers.

    I just finished a David Rosenfelt book, am listening to a k.d. Lang concert (she’s so talented!) and am gearing up to walk to the P.O. hoping to find my Dorg. Life is fine today.

  92. Barb & Maggie
    6:11 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Jasper, thinking of you playing tug of war with that mouth is making my skin crawl. Don’t even think about it!

    Someone, I think Oley’s mom, mentined Downton Abbey this morning. We saw all the 2nd season, but not sure if we want to go back and watch the first, or just wait for the 3rd. What do you think? Lester Holt talked about how popular the show is on Saturday morning. He said he almost called it Downtown Abbey. That is what Barb thought it was till you all started talking about it.

  93. Barb & Maggie
    6:14 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Dawon, Which one did you read? We are just finishing #4 Sudden Death, and ordered #5 Dead Center, from the library today. They are awesome!

  94. dawson
    6:22 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    One Dog Night is the one I finished today. The other one by him that the library had was On Borrowed Time. It was good as well but not an Andy Carpenter mystery so not as much humor.

  95. Sam
    6:23 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    MagPie, yes, you and Barb should watch season 1of Downton Abbey. It is excellent.

  96. Rose
    6:37 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Whew! So much excitement! Be still my beating heart!

    Welcome home, Dan!

    Jasper: Glad to hear you’re feeling better!

    Rebecca: Zowie! How cool is that!! Are you ready for your close-up??? (I bet Belle is, and she’ll be wearing something sparkly!)

    Rio: Isn’t your birthday April 15th? When is Beau’s birthday?

  97. Melanie
    6:56 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    We are 3/4 way thru on the finale of DA. Dan decided not to even try to find out what was going on. He’s going to start from Season 1.

    Barb and MagPie: The thought of that woman trying to do the Dawson Dance just sent shivers up my spine. Speaking of spine, I can’t help but think she’s going to end up with back trouble.

    Jasper: No tug! No tug! Ow, just the thought.

    Okay guys, one more day and then I’m out of here! Do you know that we have an ironing board but we’ve lost our iron? I’m not saying that we don’t use it much … but we never use it. Discovered the old steamer thingy and that worked great.

    Hmm. my spell check now accepts the word thingy. Which is good because I use it a lot.

  98. Jasper the Poodle
    7:00 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Can someone send mom’s email address to Dawson? I’m going back to my nap. Thanks.

  99. Masquers
    7:10 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    We had a recent avalanche of good things to read and had to return a couple to Casa del Libro (gasp) unread!
    Barb & Dawson: You are making the David Rosenfelt books sound so good!
    Hi Jasper! Getting gourmet meals is always a positive to balance out that other negative thingy.
    Melanie: Thingy describes “any small item that is lost or forgotten”.
    Corn bread in the oven, split pea soup in the crock pot. Supper at 5 o’clock!

  100. Masquers
    7:13 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    or, in the case of the Plunderers, we’ve come up with our own special meaning.

  101. B.Stover
    7:14 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Melanie: What do you mean you’re out of here?

  102. Masquers
    7:18 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    I like this definition even better: “used to describe an object on the spur of the moment when you have a sudden brain cloud and forget exactly what you were going to say”.

  103. BearSpiritDog
    7:21 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    B: Didn’t Melanie say she was going on vacation?

  104. Melanie
    7:21 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    B.Stover: Friday morning at 8 am I will start driving to NJ to see OTAS and FOTAS!
    Friday I will be attending the first fitting of the wedding dress (3 pm).
    Saturday, Papi (their dog) and I will have a spend the day in front of the fire place and read day.
    Sunday is FOTAS’s Bridal Shower.
    Monday, I head home to get back here around 2 pm.

    My sister is coming to be with my parents and The Pack.
    If I get to use their computer, I’ll check in.
    Otherwise I’ll be calling a certain Royals’ Mum who has claimed OTAS as her spiritual son. Which is good because the Storyteller has claimed the other son.

  105. Melanie
    7:22 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Masquers: THAT’S IT! That is what a thingy is!

  106. OleyHowlers
    7:35 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Mom’s consultation with the animal communications person is coming up, so we are getting ready to listen in. We are suspicious about a stranger discussing us with Mom.
    Melanie, we didn’t realize you were traveling to NJ so soon.
    Barb and Maggie, Downton Abby was so good, we could watch it over and over. Definitely do watch Season 1, then follow it up with a re-watch of Season 2.

  107. Barb & Maggie
    7:44 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Masquers, We absolutely love the Andy Carpenter series. Our library only has the 9th or 10th one, so the others have to ordered on inter-library loan. He should be coming out with #11 this year. Dawson is right, they are lots of fun.

    Melanie, that is nice that Martha can give you a break for a few days. Have a wonderful time and don’t worry, be happy!

  108. BearSpiritDog
    7:45 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Melanie: What a wonderful time Dan will have catching up on all the past episodes of Downton Abbey.
    It has to be the one of the best series ever done.

    O.Howlers: We can’t wait to hear all the details about the upcoming consultation!

  109. dawson
    8:02 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    My Dorg is here! He is even 10 times better looking in person dog!

    T&G: The genuine anti-marauding goat charm works again!

    Who is it that watches “Survivor’? It’s on tonight, don’t forget.

  110. B.Stover
    8:06 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Melanie: Have a great time! You deserve it.

  111. Liz
    8:16 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Dawson, he arrived?? that’s great! I was worried the toffee thief would be an art thief as well.

    Hi everyone, very interesting reading you all today.

  112. Staff
    8:22 pm on February 22nd, 2012


    Dan home.

    Checkpoints all sponsored. Congrats to the Royals!

    Mr.Staff and Staff are retired mostly.


    Now I have to take a nap before I get ready for bed. I am very tired.

  113. dawson
    8:24 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Yes, Resch is right here. He loves snow, by the way. And can he ever eat!

    Hmmmm.I have to figure out how to put this kind of canvas into a frame. I may have to build one, eh?

  114. dawson
    8:25 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Staff: Mostly retired counts! Even thinking about retiring counts! The retiree checkpoint is all inclusive.

  115. Liz
    8:27 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    D, i can send a photo of the sort of frame I usually use, they’re shallow and box-like.
    He sure can eat! That dog scammed SO much food from the neighbourhood, not to mention that bakery at the local shops in the middle of the night.

  116. dawson
    8:41 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Okay Liz, I’d appreciate that.
    I think I have the sort you mean but it is not the right dimensions so I will probably have to buy one.

  117. OleyHowlers
    8:46 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Mom is finished with her consultation. He pretty much verified all that she thought she knew about us. But she was surprised that Meashka knows her job is to be The Protector, and her eyes must be on Mom. Why was Mom surprised by that? Mom says that she thought Meashka was protector of Sasha and Kat, but didn’t know that she was the one being protected. And that is why Meash gets mad at Mom when she leaves and keeps Meash inside where she cannot see.
    As for Kat, she is smart, a thinker, and very sensitive. She is hurt that she is punished by being put in a krate.
    Sasha is outdoorsy (duh) and confused that things are not working as they used to. Her left eye may be having trouble, but mostly she just wants to run as she always has.

  118. Riö – The Evil Pug
    8:52 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Staff!…Did not mention the other big big big event that we heard about today!…heh!…I wonder if she skipped that part…sniff!

  119. Melanie
    9:02 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Hi LIz! Glad that Dorg made it through the mail.

    Staff: Anyone who thinks that sitting at a desk having to focus on paperwork is not exhausting is nuts.

    OleyHowlers: That is great about the animal communicator. I wonder what would happen if an animal communicator tried to communicate with all of The Pack. BRAIN OVErLOAD. The person would go on an eating binge and then run for ten minutes and then fall asleep for hours.

    Been a long day. Dan did pretty well. He was totally exhausted by bed time and decided to get a bit snippy but Zoë handled it great. The book I talked about a couple of days ago by the Asperger dude is help. I plan on reading it over the weekend.

    The “wiring” in the brain of someone with Aspergers is so different than “normal” that is quite a hinderance. He has a great sense of humor and willing to work on it.

    With Dan, his wiring has short circuited and it’s nothing that he can help. This book is giving us some pointers on how to see things from his point of view.

  120. Melanie

    Whoops! Forgot to say TTFN, from the Scarecrow

    9:19 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    What? I missed something? I was reading it pretty fast cause I was so tired. (The nap was short but nice)
    Drat. Give me a hint.

  123. BearSpiritDog
    10:00 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Hurray for Hollywood!

  124. Tupper and Gilly
    10:00 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Wow – this has indeed been quite the day!
    Rebecca – congratulations!!!! We are so very pleased for you. We have already told everyone that they will be able to see the Snowhook team that we rave about all the time.

    Jasper – fetch is ok – herding is better. Ask your Mom to get you a bunch of sheep to keep you busy.

    Everything is just so wonderful, we are twirling along with the rest of the gang. Happy Happy Corgi Dance!

  125. BearSpiritDog
    10:02 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    O.Howlers: Aren’t you missing a couple of guys in the consultation news?

  126. Masquers
    10:05 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Sorry, Mom says we’re going to have to shut ‘er down for the night. Too windy out there for comfort.
    See everyone tomorrow.

  127. Staff
    10:14 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Oh Yeah, AJ in the movies. Thanks Bear Spirit Dog. Good hint.
    Well now that I have had my nap I better try to get to bed at a decent hour.

    Night all

    Glad the dorg has come home.

  128. Snowhook Bella
    10:18 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Howlers: Interesting what was picked up on about your lot. Hopefully some comfort was able to be communicated ti Sasha.

    B&M: I’m not sure how much I can share about the network yet, but once I get the go ahead, I will let you know.

    Melanie: Pictures, pictures, don’t forget to take pictures. Have fun!

    Where did Rio disappear to, I wonder?

  129. Barb & Maggie
    10:22 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    The consultant would be interesting. I think she should go visit Rio and Beau next. She will have to build up to the Pack.

    Hi Liz, hope all is well in your part of the world.

    Dan, sleep peacefully. Night all. Tomorrow is a work day for semi-retired Barb at CLL.

  130. Snowhook Bella
    10:48 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    I was missing Rio’s recent posts, but I can see them now.

    Pups, Mick and Jodi, are following Staff’s example and having a pre-bedtime nap.

  131. Liz
    11:14 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Hey Rebecca, I look forward to hearing all the info about the show so i can keep an eye out for you on TV here. There’s a series just starting at the moment about the arctic, the previews show a lot of dogs and sleds. I wondered if it featured you guys!!

  132. BearSpiritDog
    11:35 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Hi Liz: Did you see the video link I posted for the recent Yukon Quest Race? Let me see if I can find it…..

  133. Snowhook Bella
    11:48 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Liz! It is good to see you back on the blog regularly. I have no idea when the program will be aired, but I will let you know as soon as I have the information.

  134. Tupper and Gilly
    11:50 pm on February 22nd, 2012

    Yaaaaawwwnnnn…oops sorry. It has been quite the day around here hasn’t it. Enough to tire out a couple of Corgi dogs. We have to say good night too –

    and Bella – Mama wants to know if you asked AJ….

    G’night all

  135. BearSpiritDog

    Funny! One of the posts under the video is from “hot, humid Australia” wishing they were there.

    Well, guess we’ll turn in here also. Everyone seems to have gone to bed.
    Good night Liz, Royals & SnowBella.
    Sweet dreams to all – Bear

  138. Snowhook Bella
    12:13 am on February 23rd, 2012

    Stinky Mama: I did ask AJ. He wants to think on it a bit. I will try to nail him down on it tomorrow and let you know.

  139. Liz
    12:29 am on February 23rd, 2012

    Hey thanks Bear, that video is great! SUCH beautiful dogs. I have a good giggle at dogs in booties, they look so cute. As usual, that much snow just freaks me out.

    I had a great aunt in Nebraska who married a man from the Yukon who chewed tobacco. She wasn’t ever seen again, i believe…
