    Just ordered the three Paws and Claws books to make sure I have enough reading material between Chet and Bernie releases.

    Read the three Bowser and Birdie books a few years ago. Highly recommend them. Wish there were more.

    Studies also show a nightly routine before bed helps you to wind down and get a good night’s sleep. Shut off the devices at least 30 in. before bed. The last thing I do before settling for sleep is to read for at least 20 min. That slows my resting heart rate and via Pavlov my body gets ready to sleep. When I start to nod I put the book aside and turn out the light.

    BTW a plug for our local Humane Society. They are having a virtual Walk for the Animals again this year. Diana pawPrints and her partner in grime, Dolly are now a team, The Wonder Puppies. We’ll be doing our regular walk around the neighborhood that week in spirit with the nation within and their bipeds across the county. There is a donation page. I might post the link in April when it’s closer to the event. While Diana and Dolly were not adopted from the humane society but a different rescue in the area, we have patronized the services of the humane society since they were each puppies. We went weekly to puppy play for socialization and then returned for puppy pre-school, puppy kindergarten and training classes. Diana pawPrints started her scentwork classes there. So we are all about supporting our local humane society.

    Howie has definitely gotten into some sensitive and highly classified reports. As regards cats, Wookie was actually quite fond of them, except for the one that scratched his nose when he was a puppy. The cat from next door (Chumley) was a special friend, although they pretended to be at odds with one another when people were looking, but when they thought people were not looking, Chumley was often seen curled up next to Wookie on our back porch. Another good cat friend of his was Zimba, and although they only met once, they bonded immediately and spent a great evening together. What made it more interesting was that Zimba lived with another dog and they did not get along at all, and indeed, when the other dog first moved in, Zimba hid for about six months before coming out. But she and Wookie were definitely best buds.

    Kats!…I’m confused. Who was talking about Kats?…groan!

    WATP: How interesting that Wookie had cat friends! (I like the name Chumley). I am wondering if Teddy had any cat friends…

    Rose: Wookie, yes. Teddy, not so much although more because he never really met any. I know he would have really liked BooBear though.

    Rio: Wookie’s gentleness with Beau just reminded me of his relationship with cats. Also, there was the reference to cats and dogs and pugs and goats. Just got me thinking….

    WATO!…I must have read every other word during the Kat-Part of the story as I do not remember reading about Kats. I do remember Goats and Beau and being fanned by Wookie’s tail…aawww!…How come there was no hot-wings and beer mentioned?…wheeze!…Who took those notes anyways?…grunt!

    Iditarod!…Hey! Doesn’t the Last Great Race start in the next week or so?…sniff!sniff!

    Yes, Rio. March 6.

    I still remember the year the poodles competed. A guy trained a team of standard poodles for the Iditarod and entered them. Yes, he was laughed at. But they finished and they didn’t finish last. As you know, some teams don’t even finish. I imagine the dozen or so teams that came in after the Poodle team got a got hazing and didn’t like it.

    People tend to forget that even though Poodles are non-sporting dogs they are working dogs. They retrieve and swim and they are intelligent. They have that thick hair to protect them in the cold water. The show cuts are derived from those special cuts to protect their joints. (Although I really don’t see how that puff of hair on the hip is going to provide any protection from the cold.)

    They’re now banned from racing. Only Northern Husky-type breeds are allowed. The organizers claim it is to protect the dogs from ice forming between their toes but all of the dogs wear booties now so that isn’t a problem. I think the Alaskans just didn’t like the visuals of Poodles not only racing but beating some of the other teams. Suter also kept improving his time every year and I imagine a few were afraid he might win one year.
