The Iggy Chronicles, Volume 1

Admin: Is it true that Iggy is in fact the hero of this new e-story?

Spence: I really don’t want to give too much away.

Admin: But supposing, for the sake of argument, that Iggy does turn out to be the hero. I’m wondering how Chet might take that.

Spence: I really don’t want to give too much away.


– coming August 13.

    Good Morning All!

    The suspense on the new e-story is killing me. August 13 is a long time away.

    Nice shout-out to Commander C. Hobbit on the Snowhook website.

    Let’s not forget Have Harness Will Travel!!!

    Gooood morning, everyone! Wowser, a little over a month to wait for the e-story. We are excitedly rereading Chet & Bernie’s adventures.

    Tupper of a Tuesday to ya’ll!

    Hey HOH and Sharon!

    Saw the cutest thing on the news this morning.

    Both Chet and Iggy are heroes. (Princess was a hero in THAT.)

    Good morning all.

    Rose, the deer is a dear little thing. We will avoid the word cute as mom always say cute should never go unpunnished.

    Good morning! Have you guys been reading about the wildfire in Alaska. We don’t think it’s near Snowhook, but not knowing Alaska well, we are hoping Bella will confirm that.
    Ally Zirkle’s kennel had to be evacuated. Here is a nice blog post by her about the evacuation.

    Someone take Spence out for a few drinks, heh, heh.
    The Iggy Chronicles – I’m looking forward to them (plural).

    Melanie: I hope you and Zoe are feeling better today.

    Big storm coming in fast. It’s dark as night out there. Whooohooo! Hang on to yer britches!

  8. Barb & Maggie
    9:18 am on July 9th, 2013

    Dawson, I think your storms are coming our way. Later today and tomorrow it is supposed to be bad. Doesn’t matter much, can’t venture outside except for brief moments. Barb had to swat a big fat mosquito off my nose when I came in.

    Looking forward to August 13th!

    Let’s all stay indoors for a bit, whether the weather is wet or hot. We saw pictures of flooding in Cleveland, TN…NOT 2 hours away, about half hour.

    Hi everyone.
    HEY MASQUERS! Good to hear from you on the fly.
    HOH – aww gee….a Tupper Tuesday? Blush, blush.

    Dawson – not sure if we can get Spence out for a few drinks when we do the show in his hometown. Do you think a couple of really good stuffed quahogs might loosen his tongue?

    Damp and dank here, but the air is moving some. Doors and windows are open for the first time in many days.

    And Melanie is stopping by today. Woo Hoo!

  12. Princess Sam
    9:56 am on July 9th, 2013

    Maybe the next e-story will be about Princess.

  13. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:13 am on July 9th, 2013

    We here are jealous of all youse guys enjoying storms. Luckily, we are enjoying a cooling trend; 104 and dropping.

  14. Tupper and Gilly
    10:55 am on July 9th, 2013

    Whoa, Wolfie! Is it humid too, or does being in the shade help?

  15. Siber-H
    10:57 am on July 9th, 2013

    I’m counting down the days until the release of the Iggy e-story.

    Fellow Sibers, The wildfire in Alaska is not close to Snowhook. It is in the Fairbanks area. A lot of dog mushers live in that part of Alaska. The evacuation order has been lifted, so that is good news.

    Good Morning All

  16. Staff
    11:04 am on July 9th, 2013

    We had a little rain last night. Alice was concerned but Mr.Staff and I were oblivious. I suppose that is what Dawson is getting this morning and Barb and Maggie will get later.

    Tupper Tuesday. Heh. I get to go to the chiropractor today and then quilting all afternoon. Yippee! I think I will work on some things for the auction. yesssssss….;-D

    Siber Mr. Husky, TY for the good news about those awful fires. What a wild, roller coaster of summer weather everywhere.
    Mom’s thoughts here were: “No AC until July 4” which changed 3 summers ago when spring became summer. Now she’s lightening up. Go with the flow (like no patent leather after Memorial Day is gone).

    Staff!…My friend is always complaining that she doesn’t have anyone to sit around and gab with while she works on her quilling projects…sniff!…I’m not good enough these days apparently. Seems she wants someone who will talk back to her…snort!

  19. Riö – The Evil Pug
    12:46 pm on July 9th, 2013

    SP Kennels!….Golly, Ally sure has a lot of big-ass sponsors…sniff!…I wish some of those names would show up on Snowhooks blog one day…wheeze!

  20. Herd of Hounds
    12:52 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Rio, what the Plunderers lack in finances, we make up for in enthusiasm!

  21. O'Howlers
    12:55 pm on July 9th, 2013

    We had a post vanish into thin air.
    Thanks for the update, Siber.
    Wolfie, stay in the A/C, like we are being forced to do again today.
    Commander Rio, we need to infiltrate SPK and learn their methods of finding those Really Big Sponsors.

    Yesterday afternoon we had a dump of heavy rain which was badly needed because of the wildfire. The fire was started because the Army was doing a live ammunition exercise. They had been advised not to do it by the Bureau of Land Management but proceeded anyway. People are upset because the sale of fireworks was forbidden this year due to the fire danger and then the Army does this exercise and starts a fire. The days of hot, dry and windy conditions made the fire unmanageable and eventually people and animals were given an evacuation order. The animals were set up on the fairgrounds in Fairbanks, there were several dog teams.

    Went to the doctor yesterday because of the earache and got some medicine. There were several more bed-ridden hours of pain but I seem to be on the mend as of 3 am last night. Thank goodness.

    Twirling twirling twirling
    All those Corgis whirling
    And all the sails unfurling
    At high tide

    Traveling to the ocean
    All the waves in motion
    To meet our favorite author
    At seaside.

  24. O'Howlers

    Lucky Corgis!

    Bah!…Humbug!…Golink has met him twice now, isn’t that enough?…grunt!

    CHOBBIT!…When your ears hurt, everything hurts. Sort of like when your paw hurts everything hurts…sniff!

  26. B. Stover
    1:37 pm on July 9th, 2013

    T&G: Tell your mom that I received the mug today. It is wonderful! I’m going to make more coffee just so that I can use it. And say hi so Spence for me please.

    No patent leather after Memorial Day. Interesting. I always heard no white clothes until after Memorial Day. Silly “rules.”

  27. Siber-H
    1:45 pm on July 9th, 2013

    C.Hobbit, Your story of the cause of the Alaska wildfire sounds like the way they do things in NM. The National Park Service once burnt up part of the city of Los Alamos, NM. It was their “controlled burn” that quickly got out of control.

    We are glad you went to the doctor about your ear.

    T&G We would please like a full report with pictures of your visit with OFA.

  28. Herd of Hounds
    2:05 pm on July 9th, 2013

    T&G: Tell Mama to pack the camera and to say ,”Hi” to Melanie.
    CHobbit: Take care of yourself. Get healthy.
    Masquers…safe road.
    Siber H: Mom watched a fire once burn the same hill 3 times it was so hot and so fast 🙁

  29. Rose
    2:15 pm on July 9th, 2013

    T&G: Youse are certainly lucky to meet up with OFA!

  30. Tupper and Gilly
    3:12 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Rose – Mama is the lucky one. We never get to meet anyone. Except when Melanie comes to visit. Or when Rebecca, the Howler’s Mom, Kat and MollyPop’s Mom came to visit. We are just poor abandoned Corgis who get left home all alone with no one to feed us or pet us or let us out. (Unless you count Gramp who spoils us rotten when Mama isn’t here. He even lets us sleep in his easy chair, and he gives us cottage cheese. But that’s all – we are pretty much abused) Did she take us when she met Siber and his Mom – no. Did she take us when she met you and the Prof – no. And now she is going to see OFA again, and once more, the poor little Corgis will be left home.
    Someone call the SPCA.

  31. Tenzing
    3:17 pm on July 9th, 2013

    SiberH has it correct. We here are not impacted by the fires north, but CHH is probably feeling the effects. A fire is a very big worry of my Lady and the Giant right now especially with the truck in the shop. On Sunday night she was very worrit as the thunder was rolling. She prayed that there wouldn’t be any lightening strikes. A few years ago, they packed us up and had us ready to go when my Lady got a call from our neighbor that a fire was nearing and we may have to evacuate. We didn’t have to leave hearth and home, but we were ready.

    T&G: My Lady said it was very clear when she met you that you have a very rough life. Very rough, indeed.

  32. Rose
    4:03 pm on July 9th, 2013

    T&G: I was very disappointed not to meet you. If your mum does the Dutchess County Fair again, make sure you are there, or I will cry.

    Tenzing: How are you feeling?

    Masquers: Safe travels.

  33. Melanie
    4:10 pm on July 9th, 2013

    I made it through errands, construction on the only road down the hills, and the summer people.
    I got to have fruit salad with Golinka, and we solved the world’s problems once again.
    The whole time I was down there it was raining like mad up here. No watering the gardens today.
    Fire scares me. Our area has not had a burn for decades. We are surrounded by state forest land. Last year – with the drought – was petrifying. As Tenzing implied lightning is not a good friend.
    Stay safe all of youse. Not sure I’ll be back on.
    Didn’t sleep well last night. Next time I’ll wear my reading glasses to change the AC unit. Then I won’t switch it to fan. I thought I was having hot flashes.

  34. Rose
    4:11 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Just heard a big rumble of thunder. I may have to hide under my desk until The Prof picks me up…..

  35. Barb & Maggie
    4:16 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Poor Corgis, you can come here and live with me. Oh wait, Barb left me home alone when she went to meet OFA, too. Maybe I am abused. Maybe I should call the SPCA. Maybe I will come live with you, At least you have a Grampy who spoils you.

    C. Hobbit, Glad you are feeling a little better. Any more showings on the house?

    Barb has at least 50 mosquito bites on her. Her left hand is almost twice the size of her right, due to swelling. She tried to squirt some Frontline on me, but I was too smart for her and kept spinning around to get away from her. What is she thinking!

  36. Tenzing
    4:29 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Wose: An important thing to remember when hiding is that if your head is covered, nothing—such as lightening, thunder or the vet—can’t see or get you.

  37. Rose
    4:39 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Tenzing: I have never heard wiser words!

    RIO! If I lived near you I would gab with your friend while she cut,cut,cut and twirled, twirled, twirled her little pieces of paper. You could make yourself comfortable lap.

  38. Herd of Hounds
    4:41 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Tenzing, How right you are. Mom hasn’t found my hiding place under the sofa yet, She asks, “Where’s Lucy Lou?” every time I go there.

    WOW! Just had a boomer that shook to the foundation!

  39. Princess Sam
    4:53 pm on July 9th, 2013

    HOH, What do the parrots do when there’s thunder and big noise?

  40. Herd of Hounds
    4:56 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Princess: Those silly peck o’ parrots yell, scream things like”hickory, dickory, dock” or “I love you, Mommy” and dance like Stevie Wonder. Sheesh, no accounting for taste!

  41. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:09 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Mr.Tenzing!…That is exactly why I like to look under the bed during the storms…sniff!…Only my head will fit, but that is enough for me to search for any lost toys or scraps of food during those noisy times…gruffle!

  42. Herd of Hounds
    5:11 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Oh, Wio, you are so white!

  43. Barb & Maggie
    5:41 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Barb was going to take me for a walk, but she sprayed with Off, walked to the garden, and came back with a doz. new bites – ankles, elbows, forehead. Yikes. She said no walk!

    We just heard that Lucas, at Best Friends, passed over recently. He was the charming Mr. Vick’s “grand champion”. After the dogs were taken 5 or 6 years ago, the judge said Lucas could never be adopted, due to his aledged high street value. So, he spent the rest of his life at Best Friends. His face and body were very scared from all the fighting, but they said surprisingly, he was the most people friendly and social of all the Vick dogs. Brings tears to my eyes, and Barbs’ too. We hope Karma happens with those guys.

  44. Herd of Hounds
    5:49 pm on July 9th, 2013

    And Lucas goes to something better.

  45. Tupper and Gilly
    7:48 pm on July 9th, 2013

    If Karma is involved, Mr. Vick will get to come back in his next life as one of Rio’s baseball toys, to be chewed upon all day, and farted on all night.

    T & G, You are too kind. We would wish more extreme measures for Mr Vick and his coherts.

  48. Tupper and Gilly
    8:12 pm on July 9th, 2013

    OK, so first we dip ’em in gravy and wrap them in bacon. Then we throw them into a corral full of hungry Pugs. And a few of the surviving Pit Bulls, just for good measure.

  49. Lefty
    8:13 pm on July 9th, 2013

    The Dectives are growing up so fast. They hepped—my Lady says the ‘l’ in helped is silent when we do it so well—with dog chores this morning. They’re so adept at being underfoot, getting in the way and causing trouble. It makes me so proud. I’ve been known to be quite good at hepping—the ‘l’ is silent— as well.

    For being such good heppers—the ‘l’ is silent—my Lady gave them collars to wear, not to chew. Bernie got a red collar because my Lady said it reminds her of a Hawaiian shirt. Chet and Iggy each got a black collar—Chet, like his namesake’s dress up collar and to tell him apart from Bernie, the pup not the character. Iggy received a black collar because my Lady says he looks like he’s planning on going somewhere special, but he doesn’t know where. And, little Little got a hot pink collar for no other reason than Belle Starr insisted.

  50. Lefty
    8:14 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Detectives, not dectives. I need a nap.

    T&G: You’re getting warmer.

  51. Tupper and Gilly
    8:15 pm on July 9th, 2013

    That Belle Starr always has the ultimate in fashion taste.

  52. Tupper and Gilly
    8:22 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Ok, so first, we use them as test patients for visually challenged and mentally sadistic dental students. THEN we dip em in gravy, wind em in bacon, throw them in with Pugs and Pits, then when they are all done, we take the leftovers, pour on some honey and throw them in a cave full of grizzly bears. Once the bears are full, we dump in a couple of pickle jars full of biting ants.
    After THAT, we take the shreds of leftovers, wind them into a baseball facsimile, and THEN let Rio chew on it, and “perfume” it with his own Eau du Poot all night long.

    do you think THAT would give dear Mr. Vick an idea of what it was like for his doggies?

  53. Barb & Maggie
    8:22 pm on July 9th, 2013

    We approve of the collars too. Sound wonderful. Especially the hot pink one for Little.

    Off for dinner and Rozolli and Isles. May be back later, if not, see you tomorrow.

    We are sending off good thought for Randy Travis too. He is only 54 and such a C & W icon. For ever and ever amen!

  54. Barb & Maggie
    8:25 pm on July 9th, 2013

    OK, T & G, that sound more like it! Just make sure they have no novocain for the dental work!

  55. Lefty
    8:37 pm on July 9th, 2013

    T&G: That should do it.

    9:01 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Strange!….On an even stranger note, have any of youse guys watched the new show called “Siberia”?…heh!heh!…If “Whodunnit” is fluffy fun, then this is a little more intense. I can’t quit figure out if all these guys are real actors playing the part of being on a Reality Show that goes wrong, or if they really are people who’ve been duped and now find themselves in a dangerous situation…heh!heh!…One guy already bit the dust in the first episode…wheeze!yeeep!

    Clarkson!…I wonder if Clarkson has any inside info for me on this show..sniff!…I’m not sure I want to know if he does actually…heh!

    9:28 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Rose: thanks for reminding us about the Have Harness Will Travel fund. In honor of Tenzing who is just the latest example on how well Snowhook dogs are loved and taken care of (and why it is an honor to be a supporter), I am donating $40 to the fund. I’ll send you and Rio and email and put the $ in the mail to Rebecca.

    Barb: no more showings of the house yet. The price was reduced as of July 1st but with it being a holiday weekend, I wasn’t expecting a buyer on my doorstep. Hope that changes soon though.

    Earache is still aching and clogged up but no stabbing pains for a bit. I think when my ear started bleeding it relieved some of the pressure. I have medicine for five more days. Off to Anchorage tomorrow to see my sister for a couple of days. Sadie will be on “sleepy” pills so this will be a test to see if they work.

  60. Riö - The Evil Pug

    9:54 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Rio: not to worry. I am sure I’ll be better by tomorrow. I am locked into this visit and it would be a hassle to postpone.

    Everyone: thanks for all your help with the Snowhook team jackets. Some of you went to extraordinary lengths! I obviously couldn’t have done it without youse and I am so happy to be a part of this community.

  63. Tenzing
    9:56 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Rio: The way I remember it, give you a coupla Slim Jims and not only can you pass gas on demand, sometimes it happens when you least expect it.

    CHH: Thank you for honoring us. We here are worrit about you traveling when you’re not feeling well. You have my Lady’s cell phone number. If you need to stop and lay down, let her know.

  64. Herd of Hounds
    10:28 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Loved the “dip them in” punishment. Couldn’t have thought up better. Oops, need to wake up mom and send her to bed. She is drooling on the corner of the ipaw.

    Tenzing, here’s hoping C.Hobbit will be able to hear if she needs to call.
    C.Hobbit, do you text?

    Beau!…He always has to take a big dump a few houses into our walk…snort!…My friend always says, “Ohhh no, Beau! Now I have to carry your crap all around the neighborhood.”…heh!heh!…I think he plans it that way. His dirty little trick to get back at her for being gone all day long…gruffle!…I would do it too, but I can’t hold it for hours and hours like he does…sneeze!

    11:00 pm on July 9th, 2013

    Wose, Tenzing is right about how to hide. If your head is under something (a bed) then you are hidden. Tails are invisible.

    CHobbit it was an honor to be able to help Snowhook with the jackets. The last one was mailed out last Tuesday and should be there next Monday or so.
