    Good morning, Chet, Spence, Admin, Plunderers and Lurkers. We are enjoying that song, and we are now in love with Old Cape Cod. Boris told Sasha about it … he really loved his vacation in Hyannis.
    Speaking of Sasha, I am up top! Woo Hoo Do I look good or what!

    Cold one here in Westchester today (12 degrees)! Now, if there was only some snow to go with it!

    Sasha, you always look marevlous! In fact your pack is a good looking bunch, I tell you!

    Good morning all. And guess what! I am up top now. Haven’t seen my pic there for a long time. There are sooo many FOCs now.

    Happy Birthday Macy’s mom. Have a wunerfur day!

    Good morning B&M: Maggie you are right. We don’t see enough of you up top. You’ll have to ad some more photos from your new digs.

  5. OleyHowlers
    10:14 am on January 3rd, 2013

    We got a great idea. On January 31, we think all Plunderers should add a new pic to FOC ! See if that doesn’t get one uf us FOM!

    Wow! That’s a name from my childhood. And the other day the NYTimes had an article on Doris Day who is now 90. How time flies.

    Happy birthday Macy’s Mom.

    Good morning all.

    Good Morning all. Macy’s Mom’s Birthday? Have a wonderful day!

    I will be putting in different pics of the Pack on January 31st. Good idea OleyHowlers. Now, if someone will remind me. .

    Riö, don’t worry YSAS has not gotten fat. They have been pumping him up with lots and lots and lots of fluids. He is now in a real room. Still no yogurt and anything like that is staying down. Sigh. He did see a very strange phenomena at one point late last night. He said if he didn’t know if it was sleep deprivation or some drug, but he SWORE he saw some dogs and kats taking a corner at high speed. The weird thing was they were stacked.

    Snowbella, tears can be cleansing and needed.

    Hello DEXTER! Welcome . .

  9. Melanie
    10:41 am on January 3rd, 2013

    Oh, Snowbella, which I could send some of the weather your way. Negatives this morning and it’s now 4 degrees. There is a breeze so the Poop Patrol is waiting until the sun hits that area.

  10. BearSpiritDog
    10:52 am on January 3rd, 2013

    Everything is frozen here.
    SnowBella, Wish we could exchange temperatures.

    No trash pickup yesterday due to the holiday. The raccoon clan had a feast in the early morning hours.

    A Very Happy Birthday to Macy’s Mom!!!

    Rio: I think that your question from last night has been answered already. However, I have always sent books using media mail the way Amazon does: wrapped in plastic “popcorn” paper and then boxed.

  12. Rose
    10:55 am on January 3rd, 2013

    Melanie, have they tried given YSAS dry toast or crackers? Might be easier to keep down. I mean , I like yougurt and all, but not if I’ve been spolrting my guts out.

    11:01 am on January 3rd, 2013

    Melanie!…You must have read every other word of my post last night…grunt!…I said Clarkson did Not need to lose anymore weight – he is skinny enough without not eating for days and days and days…yeep!…Speaking of eating, where’s my breakfast…grump!

  14. Staff
    11:01 am on January 3rd, 2013

    Poor YSAS. I don’t think it is good news that he got a room. That makes me think they think he is really ill and won’t get better fast. sniff

    Happy Birthday Macy’s Mom!

  15. BearSpiritDog
    11:04 am on January 3rd, 2013

    Rio: It is as the others have said. Media Mail packages can contain only books, CDs, DVDs etc. Boxes are good. We received a book from a friend yesterday stamped “received in damaged condition” with the bottom half torn open. Somehow it survived intact. It had been wrapped in thin brown wrapping paper, obviously not suitable for the perilous journey through the Postal Service.

    Hope there is better news from Dr. Sam today.

    RIP Patti Page.

    Friends of Chet: So many new ones and all so good looking. FOM MacBeth seems a fun loving, energetic dog. I’m a little late in welcoming him.

    Happy Birthday to Macy’s Mom! I see cake in your future.

    SnowBella: I know you don’t write specifically to make us cry but I have yet to read one of your “farewell” stories that didn’t have that effect on me. They are healing tears, like Melanie said.

  17. Melanie
    11:15 am on January 3rd, 2013

    I think his getting a room had a lot to do with SO. I want her on my side if anything goes wrong.

    And at 5’10”, he weighed 148 pounds. He does not need to loose more weight.

    He kept down and in . . CHICKEN BROTH!

    We’re up to 8 degrees! But the wind has kicked up.

    We tried to get YSAS upgraded to a suite with a better view and a big screen TV, but there were no vacancies. The only thing missing is quality room service which we will mention on our comment card when we check out of the hotel.

  19. Barb & Maggie
    11:17 am on January 3rd, 2013

    We sent a big book to NC for Christmas. It was $6.00 media mail and would have been $23.00 regular priority mail.

    We are still having strange temps here in Illinois. 20s and 30s today, possible 50 by next week. It’s just not right!

  20. Kat
    11:20 am on January 3rd, 2013

    I have taken the opportunity to check “yogurt” on YSAS’ room service menu. Not to worry. It is not for him, but for the “knees” of Dr. Sam. And it is my most favoritest food in the world.

  21. SnowBella
    11:28 am on January 3rd, 2013

    Basil & Sage: To answer your question from last night, the cancellation of these races doesn’t impact AJ qualifying. As a veteran musher who has finished the Iditarod, he doesn’t have to requalify each year. He is qualified for life, so to speak (unless they change the race rules). Theses smaller races are good to see how the team is performing in a race situation, test yourself and hopefully, win a payout from the purse if you place high enough. We’re looking at other races in the next couple of months, but the ones close to us already have waiting lists several deep.

  22. SnowBella
    11:36 am on January 3rd, 2013

    I should add, those mushers who plan to run Iditiard for the first time, need to run so many qualifying races equivalent to a certain number of miles. I believe the mileage is 750 at this point, which increase a few years ago from 500 miles. The musher must finish within certain timeframe after the winner of that particular race. The race must be a sanctioned qualifier. I believe a musher has to have their qualifiers complete the year before signing up for the Iditarod and the qualifiers can be completed within a certain completed within in a two year time frame.

    11:39 am on January 3rd, 2013

    Gah! So many typos!

    Happy birthday to Macy’s Mom!

    Funny story about Chet’s post today. Every time our Grampa would hear her name he would say: “Have I ever told you the story of the time I met Patti Page?” (Yes, Grampa, you have. Many, many, many times…..) And we would smile and say, “Please tell us what happened, Grandpa.”

    SnowBella: Thank you for your answer to Staff’s question. We were wondering about the Qualifying Races too.

  25. BearSpiritDog
    11:42 am on January 3rd, 2013

    Sorry, HerbKats. It was youse who asked the question.

  26. OleyHowlers
    11:50 am on January 3rd, 2013

    Whew! That is a relief, Bella. Thanks for letting us know that AJ is already qualified. Still, we hope he can get into some preliminary races for training purposes.

    Sober One: Check your SDD.

  27. Siber-H
    11:53 am on January 3rd, 2013

    R.I.P. Patty Page. That is a good song Spence picked out by her.

    Happy Birthday to Macy’s Mom! Husky Birthday Hugs from your neighbor to the west.

    Welcome Dexter!

    Bella, our book was delivered on New Years Eve. Thats sort of close to Christmas Eve…
    Does anyone else have the Born to Run book? We have some questions regarding dogs who are mentioned but not shown…and also since it does not list the kennel where the dog resides, and we do recognize names, we are wondering if others can remember which team some of them are on.

  30. Siber-H
    12:07 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Fellow Sibers, Checked and responded.

  31. Macy the Min-Pin
    12:07 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Yawn…stretch….front legs out….back legs out….now shake…

    Today school started back, so dad was out of here before the sun came up. Mom said no to staying up in the dark, so we all piled back in bed until 10 am. Mom has to get herself pulled together by 2. Looks iffy right now but time will tell.

    Thanks for all the birthday wishes. Mom wishes she could wish a few years (and pounds) off. Dad posted a picture of her on FB that adds at least 25 lbs thanks to the way she is standing. Does he LOOK at these pictures before he posts?

    Best of everything to everyone today. We may be getting some flurries tonight. Bring it on!

  32. Siber-H
    12:11 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    I do not have the Born To Run book. I went to Amazon to order it, but it is $58.00. Mom won’t let me buy it. YARK

  33. OleyHowlers
    12:15 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Siber, it truly is a beautiful book.

  34. Siber-H
    12:17 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Fellow Sibers, Is it worth the $58.00?
    It is selling for the same price on the Iditarod’s website.

  35. BearSpiritDog
    12:18 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    O.Howlers: We here have the book. Although it is a disappoint the individual kennels are not mentioned, nevertheless, it is a Beautiful Tribute to these Magnificent Athletes. So proud to see our very own Snowhook Kennel as a part of it.

    Flurries in Texas…Snow melting in Alaska…Something is not right here.

  36. OleyHowlers
    12:23 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    We paid much more than that for the book in the great Snowhook auction. Of course, ours was autographed by the author/photographer and by the one and only AJ! Anyways, we think it was well worth it. Truly a beautiful book. Our only wish is to know which dogs are on which teams. And who the 3 or 4 dogs are that were not named.
    Oh, and where Diesel is. He is named in the Intro as being included, but we don’t see him.

  37. OleyHowlers
    12:24 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    BSD, do you remember who Penny races for? We remember he very well, but cannot remember which musher is on her team.

  38. Siber-H
    12:30 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Thanks for your replies about the book. We order so much stuff from Amazon there is a possibility mom would never see that $58.00 charge on her credit card statement.

    Bear, We are in agreement about the weather. Mom would like to send our cold to Rebecca’s part of Alaska.

  39. BearSpiritDog
    12:42 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Siber-H: We pre-paid $65 for the book, which was an autographed copy (sans AJ’s signature), that included shipping costs.
    Will you be “eating the evidence” anytime soon?

    O.Howlers: I do not recall Penny’s musher, but remembering that throughout the latter part of 2012 the Iditarod Trail Committee showed photos of dogs and kennels, maybe we can go back on their facebookie pages to see if we can match kennel names to furry faces.

  40. OleyHowlers
    12:54 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Hmmm…Colleen Robertia is on Penny’s team. We don’t remember that one.

  41. Siber-H
    1:01 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Bear, Maybe not real soon because Amazon is temporarily out of stock of the book.

    I recognize the name Colleen Robertia as an Iditarod musher, but I don’t know anymore than that.

  42. Siber-H
    1:04 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Colleen has not signed up to do the Iditarod this year.

  43. B. Stover
    1:09 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Staff, Dawson, Catty Librarian: I just read your tribute to Maggie. What a wonderful person your mother was. I wish I had known her.

  44. dawson
    1:14 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    This is a link for an article on Colleen and her lead dog Penny.

  45. OleyHowlers
    1:17 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Link to buy the book:

  46. OleyHowlers
    1:22 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Dawson, Thanks for that link. Colleen described Penny as tenacious, the same way Mom describes our lead dog Sasha. We hope in her next life, Sasha gets to run the Iditarod. We know she would be great.

  47. Siber-H
    1:40 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Fellow Sibers, Thanks for the link. That is a nice website. That guy could make all of here on the blog look our very best.

  48. BearSpiritDog
    2:32 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Hmmm. Our Limited Edition did not include the protective slipcover.

  49. OleyHowlers
    2:52 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    BSD, Didn’t you order the autographed, but not limited edition one? The middle one on the page…

  50. BearSpiritDog
    3:28 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    O.Howlers: At the time of pre-order we understood it to be one of the 200 limited edition, autographed copies. Someone here is going back in Time into the archives to check.

  51. Belle Starr
    4:13 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    I hope they bring YSAS more chicken broth soon. That was good.

  52. BearSpiritDog
    4:23 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Dr. Sam: Hope they are aware of YSAS’s gluten allergies. As you know, it shows up in the most unlikely foods.
    Chicken broth seems to be a good choice.

  53. Belle Starr
    4:50 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    We’ve tried to convince room service to give YSAS gluten free cheesecake—for medicinal purposes only—but they refuse.

  54. Siber-H
    4:53 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Woo Woo

    My computer crashed. It was driven immediately to the computer hospital. I am using a neighbors coomputer to post this message.
    I’ll be back to the blog when they get the darn thing fixed.

  55. BearSpiritDog
    5:17 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Siber-H: Oh, No!

  56. OleyHowlers
    5:22 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Rio is up top. heh heh heh

  57. Barb & Maggie
    5:25 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    So if we don’t hear from Siber for a bit we will not worry. How thoughtful of him, but he knows how we are if someone goes MIA.

    Barb is still readng Forgotten Garden and loves it! Have to look for more books by Kate Morton.

  58. SnowBella
    5:30 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    I wonder if SiberH crashed his computer in a high speed chase for slim Jim’s.

  59. Wookie's Dad
    5:42 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Just a quick post to wish Macy’s mom a happy birthday and many more to come.

  60. B. Stover
    5:45 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Barb: I read Forgotten Garden and really liked it. The House at Riverton is very good and her latest is The Secret Keeper. I also have The Distant Hours on my Kindle but haven’t read it yet.

  61. Melanie
    6:00 pm on January 3rd, 2013


    I hate shopping. Okay, Mattie has an infection in her ears that cleaning isn’t going to clear up. It’s anti-biotic drops for her!

    Dr. Sam (and his entourage) have SPRUNG YSAS. He is just waiting on his papers now. Well, not papers on the floor, you understand, just papers that they are going to hand to him saying you now owe us your life.

    It was a CAN OF SOUP! More on that when I find out more. His throat is still very sore and SO is at work.

  62. Melanie
    6:03 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Oh, he was able to keep down and in 4 baby potatoes. (Thanks for eating the yogurt, Kat. They thought he also ate that)

    Yes, he was wearing an allergy bracelet.

    Zoë is set to go off tomorrow. She gets more good stuff in her veins. She is scared.

    I am going to set up her own email account and then put it on our email. Do not expect it soon.

    As I said, I hate shopping. Had to do WallieWorld and grocery store. Jesse did the dog sitting.

  63. BearSpiritDog
    6:09 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Melanie: Very Good News!

  64. UPS
    6:36 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    We have a delivery for a C. Hobbit. Will someone sign for it?

  65. Melanie
    6:41 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Oh, that is funny!

  66. SnowBella
    6:49 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    I hope CHH upgraded for the non-pooping model. I hear it’s worth the additional expense. I tried to order the upgraded canine model, but it has been on back order every time.

  67. Melanie
    6:52 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    He’s out of the hospital and ordering . . wait for it . .
    Mashed Potatoes!

  68. Luna
    6:56 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    We are hoping he orders some turkey gravy on the side.

  69. Melanie
    7:02 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    He has to order more than just mashed potatoes. Would you like some French Fries? You could share with SO.

  70. Luna
    7:15 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Melanie: Yes! Please and thank you.

  71. Barb & Maggie
    7:28 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Sounds like he is on the road to recovery. What a relief. What does it mean that Zoe is set to go off tomorrow? Off pain killers?

    Bee, We will look for those books. Barb made a list of the titles. Thanks.

    He better not eat any of those hot wings!
    Zoe is going for a transfusion tomorrow.
    I am going to bed. I think I get Saturday to rest.
    I sure hopeeee . . zzzzzzzzzzz

    I’m so glad that YSAS is out of the hospital.

  76. Macy the min-pin
    8:10 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Mom says thanks for the card Mr. Rio. She is disheartened to realize that there probably are not even enough candles on the cake!

  77. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:17 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Oh-monkey!….heh!snort!heh!…That Dr. Rizzo just makes me laugh out loud…snort!…And I never laugh….heh!…Stover, you have to watch this show ON DEMAND, Animal Practice…wheeze!…I usually do not like sit-coms, but this one is worth all the fluffy stuff which is actually pretty funny too…grunt!…But of course it was Cancelled. It has quality writing and good jokes….grump!

  78. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:18 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Macy!….Let her know (gently) there is always next year…snort!

  79. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:25 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Narly!…Well, my friend suggested to her mother she should go do things during the day instead of sitting around here with us watching tv and eating gawd knows what. What? ….grunt!…My friend barely escaped with her head after her response. Seems her mother is bored stiff but does not want to read a book, find a hobby, go to lunch, or go on day trips offered daily, or ANYTHING…sniff!…But she is bored to tears…snort!…My friend does not understand it because if she had all day everyday free she would make the most of it with or without me….grump!

  80. Princess Sam
    9:35 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    I’m glad to be out of our ‘stack’ in the hospital. You don’t know what I had to put up with. Those guys underneath me were just a bunch of whiners. I am NOT heavy!

  81. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:38 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Microwave!…Ding!….I hear her mother upstairs heating up yet more food to consume!…wheeze!…I can’t help it, I have to go see what I can beg off of her before Beau does at this late hour….yeep!…My friend is not happy….heh!heh!

  82. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:40 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Sammie!…It’s always best to be on the top no matter what!…snort! ….All those other whiners will recover eventually…heh!

  83. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:56 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Alone!…Where is everybody? Did Macy have a big Birthday Party and not invite me?…wheeze!

    Rebecca!…I know you are still at work or some such silly thing, but check your SDD …grunt!

    Heh, Hi Rio…what are you snurfulling about?

  86. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:58 pm on January 3rd, 2013

    Snurfulling?!…snort!…Not about you AbbieTheKat. You never talk to me anymore, so I am not going to snuffle-luffle to you anymore either…grunt!

  87. Barb & Maggie

    We are saying Nightly Pasta too. Barb is going to bed early with the hopes of getting a little sleep. She wakes up constantly due to that damn cough!

    Cough!…Barb!…Flush your sinus’s out. Right now before you go to bed!…snort!…That used to help my friend before we moved over here to my other house…sniff!…She was very allergic to that other place and coughed all the damned time. Kept us both up all night long…grunt!…Then she started doing a sinus rinse and that helped the cough a lot…wheeze!snuffle!

    Happy Birthday, Macy’s Mom!! Hope you had a great day.

    Dad “rang out” at radiation yesterday. On the final day, you ring the bell 3 times to signify that you are finished with your treatment. His office surprised him by shutting down and being there when he came out to ring the bell. He thought only Mom would be there. They had been planning the surprise since before Christmas. There was alot of whooping and hollering and clapping and crying! We will get Mom to post a picture this weekend. She would do it today but she keeps muttering about this being a week from hell at work.

    Wow That sounds like a wonderful group and support for your Dad. We are glad he is ‘rung’ out. Hugs and kitty kisses to you and him from some kats up North.

    How do you rinse your sinuses out, Rio (who is probably in bed with baseball toys)? I wonder if the Catty Librarian is doing it right? >^..^<

    Perhaps the pug’s friends mom is depressed. Someone around here feels like that frequently. Plenty of things to do, none of them getting done.

    Oh, Elliot, you should NOT have asked that question. We know the answer and it is DISgusting. If someone is going to do it just make sure no one else is around to splort.

    Way to ring in the new year, G and BB’s dad!!! Gimme four!

    Elliot: I was going to answer, “Get a running start,” but I don’t think that’s the right answer.

    Macy: That doesn’t look like any moose I’ve ever eaten, I mean seen. I wonder if it comes in stripes, too? 🙂

    Now, now, Princess Sam, you didn’t hear a complaint out of me.

    If YSAS wasn’t discharged soon, we were going to change our disguises. After a while, we started getting a lot of suspicious glances from people with clipboard. The plan was to obtain a wheelchair, have Sam and Masquers each ride a footrest and do their best to look like slippers peeking out from under a lap quilt, Belle Starr would be the ‘patient,’ I would stand on my hind legs and push the wheelchair dressed as an orderly and Kat was going to following us dressed as a candy striper. It didn’t come to it, but it’s one we’ll keep on the back burner for future.

    Happy Sinus Rinse, PugButt

    UPS: well, at least I get a warning unlike the box of fruit delivered at -45.

    Years ago I worried that I was going to end up being a little old lady who only left her house to buy food for her 11 cats and dogs. A few years later it became an oddly attractive idea.

    CHobbitH: Thank you for the card and bookmark that Mr. Dawson admitted he has been carrying around for a while in his backpack. I can’t blame the goats. I’m going to use the bookmark right now.

    Rebecca, since Belle Starr was close by, she stopped in for some belly rubs.
