    Good morning! Shaggy!! We hope someone great can manage to catch him and keep him safe and loved.

    Good morning, O’H and everyone–Isn’t it nice to NOT be on the streets (even if you’re snowed in or about to be)?

    We second what Howlers said. He looks sort of like a brown Newfie, doesn’t he? Our neighbor’s folks had a chocolate colored Newf and he looked like that. Poor guy, spending all this time out there in bad weather.

    Morning all. Hope all are safe and warm. Did we get any reports from Wose yesterday?

    Macy’s Mom–I hope this day looks a bit better after a good night’s sleep.

    Morning all.
    Hope your dreams were of playing strip poker with Clooney and two other good lookers, and you drew aces in every single hand. Heh heh.
    Our entire local newspaper today is story after story about how the storm flopped. Guess there wasn’t much other news to print. Not a single car accident, no trees down, no power failures – all good news. There were some good, artsy photos of people walking in the snow.
    Thank dog we dodged the blizzard bullet.

    Poor Shaggy. I hope the plan works.

    I thought Spence may have lost power. The storm hit that area hard according to reports. Hope everything is okay there.

    Good morning all.

    Shaggy has endured some bitterly cold weather the last few months. I hope they catch him soon.

    Morning everyone.

    I forgot to say yesterday that Josephine Tey’s title, Daughter of Time, is a partial quotation of Francis Bacon: “Truth is the daughter of time not authority.” In other words, truth will out over time despite historical accounts written by the “winners.”

    Did we ever find out who took over Masquer’s avatar yesterday to post that Dallas-Webster link? Barb, you said that you clicked on it. What did the site look like?

    Oh, oh…Animal Control/Behavior Modification…Shaggy, You’re in for it now!

    Good morning, everyone! Mom is back from doing the marketation. We thought Shaggy looked like a newf, too. We’ll keep our paws and tails crossed for him.

  13. O'Howlers
    11:18 am on January 28th, 2015

    The article said he is part Newf.

    Bee, would you believe I can’t remember what it looked like? Nothing interesting and nothing scary either.

    Rio: I want to know if a hacker was involved in posting that link.

    Mom could never follow the plan for catching Shaggy. She could never quit feeding him allowing a central location to be established. She would be too worried that he would be hungry. I am surprised that Shaggy hasn’t gravitated to one person in particular. Probably HATES the name Shaggy and runs whenever he hears it.

    Mom looked up her lab results from last week. After losing over 40 pounds, her cholesterol went…UP!!!! How did that happen? Carpola!!
    Now we need to do some research on lowering cholesterol.

  20. Herd of Hounds
    12:50 pm on January 28th, 2015

    OH Mom, as you research, remember that “average” or “normal” is just a number and there is wiggle room on all ends. No one number is right for everyone.

  21. O'Howlers

    There is another Superbowl commercial, with the same theme as that GoDaddy one, but not. Check this one out. No negatives here, folks!

  22. BooBear
    1:34 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Do y’all realize that WhiteLance (an otherwise dog) is NOT sponsored? He is the 1 that started us on this journey with Snowhook.

  23. Wookie's and Teddy's dad
    1:35 pm on January 28th, 2015

    The Budweiser commercial is spectacular — a total feel good tear jerker. There would probably a lot to be made in buying tissue futures, if such a market existed, come Sunday night (although I think the commercial has already gone viral on the internet). Teddy’s view — well, of course!

  24. BearSpiritDog

    Whitey-Lance NOT Sponsored?? Sending in a Pawful of Coins to Start This Sled Running across the Snow.

    Gah. O’Howlers, What’s That Link again?

  26. BearSpiritDog
    2:07 pm on January 28th, 2015

    It looks like the Pup from the Horrible GoDaddy Commercial got a New Job!
    Now…Where’s that Box of Tissues…….

  27. O'Howlers
    2:09 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Thank Dog! Youse guys want to sponsor W-L!!!!

    Sorry…had to post those links separately (we all know the rules on this here blog).

    The email to send in your pledge is

    I wanted to remind you all to send in the money pledged so far, if you have not done so already (and I know you all have).

  30. BearSpiritDog
    2:37 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Thanks, O’Howlers!

    2:40 pm on January 28th, 2015

    WOOO HOOOO !!!!

    Our Wandering-No-More Whitey-Lance is a beloved, FULLY-SPONSORED member of Snowhook!!! Thanks, Guys! You’re the best!

  32. Meashka
    2:40 pm on January 28th, 2015

    And Thanks go out to BooBear, Bear, and HOH !!!

  33. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    2:42 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Meashka, We did send in our money already.

    We saw that commercial on the morning news. Always thought the commercial was a big secret until it was aired during the Super Bowl. It was a great commercial, so bet Budweiser will win again this year.

    I thought it was funny tho, when they were interviewing the young man who plays in the commercial. He said he knows he is just a bit player and the pup is the star. Then he said ” No one ever remembers the boy from Lassie do they?”. Well of course they do! Doesn’t everyone know it is Timmy?

  34. O'Howlers
    3:03 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Can someone make a map of the sponsored checkpoints, so we can use it during The Last Great Race? Our dear friend used to do that, but we seem to remember Rio coming up with one last year.

  35. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    3:04 pm on January 28th, 2015

    I am enjoying Miss Julia. Thank you ALR.

    No Wose?

  36. O'Howlers
    3:09 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Wose is in lurking mode. Meashka spoke to her earlier in the week. Would any of youse like to join forces to sponsor Wose’s beloved BFF Belle Starr and/or her Mama Luna? We think that would be a nice gift to our generous donator of the Wosengrizz.

  37. Masquers
    3:20 pm on January 28th, 2015

    For our dear friend Rose and her bff Belle Starr and Mama Luna, I can be persuaded to come back on the blog. ^..^

  38. dawson
    4:12 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Masquers: Me too! Then, a little nap in the hot sun.

  39. dawson
    4:26 pm on January 28th, 2015

    O’Howlers: Rio did indeed come up with a Checkpoint Map for us last year. I hope either he or MP&LL”s Mom can do it for us. Or anyone else who knows how to do such things.

    Nap in the sun time. Ah…life is food good!

  40. BearSpiritDog
    5:41 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Life is Food…Heh, heh, Dawson, You had that right the first time.
    And speaking of which…Time For a Snack.

  41. dawson
    5:58 pm on January 28th, 2015

    BSD: “Life is food.” It started out as a typot. (I don’t know if my period should go before or after the closing quotation mark.)

    I have not got my nap yet! And I forgot all about T’ai Chi class which was this morning. That is 3 I have missed. Sheeesh! I can barely remember how to “part the wild horse’s mane”.

    On the other hand, I do have an envelope addressed to Snowhook ready for mailing.

    By the way, did I read that right? Did Whitey-Lance get FULLY SPONSORED in a matter of 30 or 40 minutes?! Wowzer! Congratulations Whitey-Lance!

  42. Meashka
    6:02 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Dawson! Yeppers, you read that right. And as of this moment, Belle Starr and her Mama Luna are already half-way sponsored!

  43. BooBear
    6:14 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Dawson, remember WhiteyLance, Luna and BelleStar are otherwise dogs so even a little donation goes a long way. But they are very important to Snowhook so sponsoring them is important. I bet that they will all be completely sponsored by sometime tonight.

  44. Herd of Hounds
    6:36 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Mom found a chart of the checkpoints but no way to send, forward or print it. Will keep thinking.

    O’H–Thanks for the link to the Budweiser salvaged a “Meh” kind of day.
    Masquers–I can’t read the name of the checkpoints either, maybe they get bigger as we get closer to the race…

  51. O'Howlers
    8:42 pm on January 28th, 2015

    We have Sons of Liberty recorded, but we haven’t yet gotten to watch any of the episodes. Glad to know it is good. Maybe this weekend.

  52. Masquers
    8:47 pm on January 28th, 2015

    DianeC: Everything gets bigger as we get closer to the race.

  56. O'Howlers
    9:11 pm on January 28th, 2015

    Rio, yes. The checkpoints are all sponsored, but we want the map of the checkpoints, with the sponsor for each one. You put one together for us last year. Could you do that again? Pretty pleez?

    My Mom does love, love, love the Budweiser Super Bowl Ad, but she was a little bit upset that they had to portray wolves in such a negative way, enforcing the image of the big bad wolf, which she doesn’t believe they really are.

    But she wasn’t nearly as upset with the ad as she has been with me this week each day when she got home from work!!! What can I say, I am a bad adolescent BRAT!

    Tundra, don’t be so down on yourself. It is up to your mom to call you bad names.

    Mom is chagrined. She just found her Snowhook check written in October but never mailed. Where does she find the address again? Doh!

    It is past the witching hour of 9 p.m. so I must get mom off to bed lest she turn into….I’m not sure what, and I dont want to find out.
