The Patch

“The Iditarod patch?” says Admin.

“Fantastic,” says Spence.

“On that we can agree.”

“Proud to be associated with it?”


“And with all the people.”

“Yes, sir,” says Admin. “And now for a link to a somewhat sad story, but maybe a bit heartwarming.”

“That doesn’t sound like you.”

“It’s not. Hat tip here to Nancy D.”

    Good morning all.

    Good Morning Chet, Spence, Admin & All

    A Story sad and heartwarming it is true. (Thank you to Nancy D) Happy to see you guys agreeing for a change and glad you like the Iditarod Patch. It is one of a kind. I am still amazed at the wonder of it!

    Good Morning Chet, Spence, Admin, Everyone! Thank you Nancy D!

    Hi B! I’m going to check out F/b!

    Good First Day of Summer Morning to Everyone!

    I love the patch! (Can’t wait to have one, or two, or….).

    Admin: You really are a sweetie after all! A beautiful story that made me tear up!

    Thaat was a touching story, and we got a little teary. Did anyone notice the final words of the newwoman? She is definitely not a dog person. I believe Yertty is a female, but the woman said, “Thank you for the story, and did you notice when THE ANIMAL saw him, he went right to him.” Firs of all, the animal? Second, of course she went right to him, he was her best buddy. Think she still remembered him after 2 weeks?

    OK gys, I reread last nights post, and don’t see where we volunteered to get the patches, however, we can do it, no problem. Can someone tell me how that is going to work? Mary is paying for them, and they will be sent in one order to us, and then we will distribute by mail?

    Barb: I may be wrong but I think it is Bear’s “Barb” who is receiving all of the patches and then distributing them.

    Confused!…. I’m confused… dammit!… I wake up and suddenly Barb is in charge of the patches. What happened to Wolfie? ….snort!… Can someone please explain to me what the drill is for ordering patches in simple easy to understand language….grunt!…I just want to know what I, Rio has to do. I don’t care about all the background issues…wheeze!

  8. B.Stover
    10:03 am on June 21st, 2011

    I’ve placed my order for two patches on Dishlickers. I’m mailing my check to Wolfie today.

    Rio: What I did (described above) is all you have to do to get your patch.

  9. B.Stover
    10:05 am on June 21st, 2011

    SH: I need your recipe for dog biscuits. I have, “Take a dog biscuit, break it in half…” I can’t remember how you phrased it.

    Rio’s post of yesterday at 4;43 is up and it sounds like a good plan. I’m for implementing it.
    Barb and Maggie: You were not mentioned yesterday in regard to the patches. 🙂
    I can’t look at the heartwarming but sad link yet. I did that yesterday with Snowhook Bella’s story and the lump stays there for awhile. I have business to do first and will read it this afternoon.
    Good day to everyone. It is saturated with rain here.

    B: Bear did volunteer to do the shipping as his mom has an on-line account with the USPS with easy access to costs and weights, etc. He wanted to do his part for this fabulous project and will be most honored to be involved in it.

    I will be most happy to keep a tally and post it by Wednesday evening. We’re thinking $2 for shipping & envelopes. However, if we know the weight of each patch we can better determine a actual mailing cost.

    10:30 am on June 21st, 2011

    Plan!….Well, emailing your order on dishlickers email address was what I first suggested although the damned moderator interrupted that message all night long yesterday…grump!… So my order will be out on the dishlicker email.

    Money!….This doesn’t explain To Whom or How Much Moolah I send to someone?…grunt!… I need that information, don’t I?….snort!…. Or do I wait till I get my patch before I make her send money out of my Treat Budget to the person who mails the patch to me?….sniff!

    Address!…. How the hell are you going to get my private address?….snort!… I need “someone” to contact with that info….grunt! ….Has anyone of you thought all this out? If so please explain it…sniff!

    Stover, it was Melanie who created the dog biscuit recipe for me. We need Melanie to come along and remember it for us. It was very simple. I think it went something like:
    Take a dog biscuit
    break it in half
    give it to the dog

    Thank you to the ones who got my picture into the cookbook…Mollypop and Melanie…and to Stover who is getting my own recipe, created just for me, into the cookbook.
    This non-technical Husky appreciates your help.

    10:51 am on June 21st, 2011

    Dawson: I agree – Rio’s plan to use dish sounds like the best way to go (everything in one place) Sorry, Rio, no one saw yesterday’s 4:43 post until today – that moderation taking forever.

    Bear says you can send your snail mail address to him at:

    Or, Wolfie could forward the addresses to Bear when he sends the check for postage. Let me know what you all think is the best way to go.

    B: As usual, you have stepped right up, making everything simple and easy.

  17. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:58 am on June 21st, 2011

    GRUMP!… FORGET IT!…snort!…. I will just place my order and then when you come up short money-wise, maybe someone will finally answer my question….grump!

  18. B.Stover
    11:01 am on June 21st, 2011

    Rio: I was using your instructions from yesterday’s 4:43 post for posting my patch order on Dishlickers.

    I’ve ordered two patches so I’m sending Wolfie a check for $20.00. My snail mail address will be with my note and check. Wolfie can then send my snail mail address to Bear’s Barb, notifying her that I have paid for the patches. She will then mail the two patches to me via snail mail.

    Does that cover it?

  19. BearSpiritDog
    11:03 am on June 21st, 2011

    Wolfie: Thank you. I am mailing my check to you today also.

    Siber-H: It is only fitting that you are in the Cookbook. I am looking forward to seeing the finished version.

  20. B.Stover
    11:03 am on June 21st, 2011

    Note: I’m going to include a list of contributors in the cookbook.

  21. Siber-H
    11:07 am on June 21st, 2011

    I am going to send my check to Wolfie…$20 for two patches.
    I am going to email Bear my snail mail address.

    I do not have a yahoo account so would you please take my order for two patches off this blog.

    Is the way I am doing this correct?

    Hey – Grumpy Little Brother Rio – lighten up, Dawg. Who peed in your cheerios this morning?
    With all this great news, patches, auctions and cookbooks, Pugs who have been instrumental should be twirling and yeeping. ‘Specially since the Rockies won last night.

  23. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:11 am on June 21st, 2011

    Address!….I don’t want all these guys having my address!…dammit!….What the hell? Why is this so convoluted??? ….snort!… FORGET IT!

  24. Redbone Hound
    11:15 am on June 21st, 2011

    Rio – Wolfie’s mom poster her snail mail address on the blog yesterday. Just state here how many patches you want, and send her a check for $10 per patch. That way only she has your snail mail address and you get your patches.
    But little buddy – ifn I don’t knjow where you live, how’m I gonna come and sit on the back porch with you and a bottle of ole grandad?

  25. Siber-H
    11:28 am on June 21st, 2011

    Rio, four people on this blog have had my address for some time and everything has been fine.

    Bear, I just emailed you my snail mail address.
    I am making out the check to Wolfie’s mom now…$20 for two patches and mom is driving me to the post office to mail it.

    Patch!….The patch sure is great though, isn’t it?…heh!…It must have magical powers because it has brought Admin and Spence together, at least for a short time…snorkel!

    Order!…Regarding my order, I will have one of my Agents take care of that messy business for me… huffle!

  28. Wookie of Chevy Chase
    11:51 am on June 21st, 2011

    I just posted my order on Dishlickers. It is for me and our fearless leader (Commander Rio) and I will get his order to him through established secret agent channels, currently classified Super Duper Top Secret. If I say any more, I think I will have to shoot myself. Wookie

  29. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:04 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Wookie!… Truer words have never been written….snort!….Well done Agent….grunt! ….That will be all for this morning….grunt!

  30. B.Stover
    12:10 pm on June 21st, 2011

    I’m laughing Wookie!

    ATTENTION Plunderers: Is the “Poodle Fierce French Toast” from Mollypop? Who submitted the “Elegant Caramelized Brussel Sprouts” recipe–T&G?

  31. Barb & Maggie
    12:16 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Siber, I think that the recipe was Take one dog biscuit, break in half, give both halves to the dog. Does that sound right?

  32. Barb & Maggie
    12:29 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Bee, Both of the recipes were from one of the parties at T & G’s place.

  33. Barb & Maggie
    12:31 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Bee, there are a bunch of recipes from the parties that I printed from the blog. Maybe I did not identify T & G’s mama on some/many of those.

  34. Siber-H
    12:44 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Barb, That most definately sounds right! Thank You

  35. B.Stover
    12:46 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Barb: I think the Sam’s Princess Potatoes is also from T&G right? I’ll post a question anytime I’m not sure.

  36. BearSpiritDog
    12:58 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Wookie: Thank you for solving Rio’s dilemma.

  37. Barb & Maggie
    12:59 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Bee, Most of those that have a cute, clever name like that are from the parties. Like Maggie’s Rat-a-toohey. Sam’s potatoes are also from her. Sorry for the confusion.

    Have to leave for work, will mail check for $30.00 on the way. Thank you again, Mary.

    Ahem – excuse me for jumpin into the conversation, but I plumb forgot to say that I wanted to get me one of those fancy patches too. I’ll be sending my money in to that nice lil’ lady who is handling things. And thank you m’am for all your work.

    1:30 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Wookie – bet your dad’s good at mediation.

    I posted my order on dishlickers and Bear SD has my snail mail address via secret decoder device and a check’s in the mail to Wolfie.

    Rio, sweetie, you’re safe. The Plunderers have your back.

  41. Basil and Sage
    1:40 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Yup Rio – we got your back. Can we use it as a scratching post?

    We posted last night that we wanted a patch. Mom will go on the dishlicker site and post the order there too. She will also send the check to Wolfie’s mom today and email Bear with our street address. Thank you to both of y’all for volunteering and to our wonderful designers for creating the design. And thank you, SiberH, for getting us involved with the race to begin with, and Rio, for all the auction work.

    And special thanks to Chet and SQ for putting up with all of us!!

    Hi All,

    Been crazy here today. I’m taking the day off from the computer.

    BTW, there seems to be a washing machine virus going around! Ours had now quit.

    Won’t get fixed until TUESDAY!

    Will be back tomorrow.

    Wow things are really moving ahead today!
    Rio, it sounds like Wookie has saved your smelly little butt for you. He is a great and super Agent, and we are all lucky he is on our side. Thank Dog.

    4:34 pm on June 21st, 2011

    AHEM!…. Official Announcement!!….snort!… Remember all of the Auction Items have to be sent to Rebeccer by this Saturday, the 25th….sniff!…. She will need time to build the Official Auction Page. So if you have not sent your Item in, please do so between now and Friday …grunt!….Saturday if you absolutely cannot get it submitted any earlier…wheeze!

  52. Masquers
    4:51 pm on June 21st, 2011

    The head count continues. About half of you have responded so far. Anyone who hasn’t sent their order and mailing instructions please do so, either at dish or email Bear at:

    Facebookie Folks are asking about ordering the patch. Chet says he is looking into it. Will we need to extend our timeline? Any thoughts?

  55. B.Stover
    7:54 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Bear: Perhaps another system should be set up for those on FB who want the patch. Wonder if they could buy it directly from the distributor.

  56. B.Stover
    8:07 pm on June 21st, 2011

    I put the patch on my FB page.

  57. BearSpiritDog
    8:07 pm on June 21st, 2011

    I agree. We do meed another system due to security reasons. I believe Melanie said we will place one order for the patches. Perhaps Chet will come up with a plan.

  58. Siber-H
    8:10 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Stover, Good Idea

  59. Siber-H
    8:14 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Bear, besides security reasons, which I agree with, I think you and Wolfie have enough to do, and we appreciate what you are doing for us. If more people started ordering patches, it could get overwhelming for the two of you and that isn’t right.

  60. BearSpiritDog

    9:14 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Strangers!… Those facebookie guys are no concern of ours…grunt!….Don’t even think of going there. That’s up to Spencer to figure out by golly…sniff!

    Rockies!…We finally get to sit down and watch the Rockies game tonight….wheeze!….What a busy afternoon. Her mother and I were on the go all day long, now we are both tuckered out and so is my friend because of the busy place and then all that other stuff she does when she gets home…wuffle!

    Sniff!…I’m awfully hungry yet… sniff!

  62. Alice M. Johnson
    9:21 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Perhaps Rebecca will have an idea about the facebookie’s wanting patches.

    I agree with Mr.Husky and Bear Spirit, we don’t need Wolfie fronting money for people we don’t know. He has enough to do keeping track of us. We are a busy bunch right now.

    Besides, any minute now someone could discover that Wolfie has his own Credit card and THEN there would be trouble!

    Hi Gang – we’re just getting on after a looonnnggg day at work. Tomorrow is Mama’s day off, and wouldn’t you know it – they are calling for rain all day….
    Can anyone suggest what the winning lottery numbers will be – we will buy the ticket and share with Snowhook and the Plunderers. If it just meant no more Crazy Lady….please dog, no more Crazy Lady.

    Hey Rio – how goes the diet?

  64. BearSpiritDog
    9:30 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Sleepy dog here. Good nite all – Bear

  65. Barb & Maggie
    9:30 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Is anyone opposed to them buying the patch if we don’t have to be directly involved with the sales, and don’t have to front any money or mail anything out? I ageee, Woolif and Bear will be busy enought handlig our stuff.

  66. Kirby T. Penworthy
    9:31 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Hey, y’all! I’m finally here. Mom’s busy as all get out doing all sorts of projects for the blog and the library and church, so I’ll be in and out.

    T&G: You just said a four-letter word! Rio’s not going to be happy with you!!!

  67. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:39 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Crap!….Maybe she has put me on a diet and that’s why I am so hungry yet….grump!…Come to think of it her mother didn’t feed me anything “extra” today but we were so busy I didn’t even moan and beg….grunt!….Oh no! This can’t be happening again. I will die! I will die of starvation I know it!…,sob!sob!sob!….Crap!

  68. Siber-H
    9:44 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Barb, I don’t object because it will be publicity for Chet and the Iditarod that the facebookie types will have to pay for. They need to figure out on their own how to do it and leave Bear, Wolfie, Melanie, and our addresses out of it.

  69. Kirby T. Penworthy
    9:49 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Mom just added our patch order to the Dishlickers site. Yippee — I’m getting a patch! I’m thinking I’ll put in on the jacket I wear when it’s cold out! Face it, if I get cold here in the South, I’d never make it in Alaska!!!

  70. Tupper and Gilly
    9:50 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Rio – our Mama sometimes gives us whole, big carrots to chew. We like the little babby carrots that come all peeled, but the big ones from the farm market are great too – almost as good as bones, and they help us keep our girlish figures.
    Tell your friend that you want carrots and lots of other wonderful fruits and veggies.

    (whispering- Kirby, we’re ducking)

  71. Alice M. Johnson
    10:00 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Yeah, give Rio a carrot.


    Personally I think that was the Herbs stealing Tupper and Gilly’s sign in name. I can’t believe T & G would tell Rio to eat carrots.

  72. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:01 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Carrots!….What the hell do I want to eat Carrots for?….grump!… If she gives me a carrot to gnaw on I will have to bury it where the sun doesn’t shine…grunt!….Rotton carrots indeed…sniff!

    Yikes!….The baseball game is tied in the top of the 9th!….yeep!yeep! ….We’ve got some of our best hitters coming up though….wheeze!….Boy this is exciting tonight!…yeep!

  73. Kirby T. Penworthy
    10:03 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Missy — Buford’s sister who went over the rainbow bridge a few years ago — was on a green bean di…er, meal plan. She got half dry food and half green beans — Mom used to buy those big institutional cans. Missy loved her meals and would wolf them down. Mom and Dad are thinking about doing the same thing with my girl’s dog, Maggie, because they say she’s a chunk! After she gets finished with her food she comes into the dining room to eat mine — until Dad started putting my leftovers up before letting her out. She also eats the kat’s food whenever she can. It’s up high, but Maggie’s tall enough to get to it!!!

    10:05 pm on June 21st, 2011

    The Rockies are ahead by 1 run now. I agree, this is an exciting game, but I have had to close my eyes a few times. I never close my eyes during horror movies, just the Rockies games.

  76. Basil and Sage
    10:07 pm on June 21st, 2011

    But Rio – if you put the carrot where the sun don’t shine, how are you going to play that second harmonica

  77. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:11 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Kirby!… Are you living with a pot-belly pig?…heh!snort!snort!….Better keep an eye on your grub pal or it will disappear before you can bury it somewhere…heh!

    Houston!…Street our closer is up to close the game. He CANNOT let anyone score a run or we will be in extra innings ….gulp!….Or worse, we will lose!!!!!….grunt!

  78. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:17 pm on June 21st, 2011

    No!…The tying run is at 3rd base and the Indians best hitter is up….grunt!…to finish us off. Maybe Houston Street can hold him off…paws crossed…snort!….Lightning is trying to take out the whole city…yeep!

  79. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:19 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Gone!…Houston got rid of that guy!….woooooo!…. Now another guy who has never faced Houston is up….heh!snort!

    10:22 pm on June 21st, 2011

    I’m still at the office, but a quick check-in on Chet’s. From what I can tell via a quick skim, to Facebookie patch or not to patch and something about Rio’s girlish figure.

    I need to get back to work.

    Rio and Siber-H: check your SDD.

    Hi. Bye.

  81. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:24 pm on June 21st, 2011

    STRIKE! THREE!…Wooooo!…Houston Street and Seth Smith do it again…(whew)…heh! …I knew they would win. No problemo…sniff!

  82. Siber-H
    10:24 pm on June 21st, 2011

    Rockies Won!! WOO WOO That was a close one. WOO WOO

  83. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:25 pm on June 21st, 2011

    I bet she does, Rio. I’m glad the Rockies are doing so well with their dads along for this road trip. I don’t know if you saw it earlier, but the announcers were interviewing Seth Smith’s dad.
    Maybe the Rockies should pay for their dads to go along on every road trip.

    The Giants haven’t been doing so well lately so maybe the Twins will keep the lead.

    Good night Siber, good night everyone.

    We dodged a big bullet weather wise tonight, 60-75 mph winds just south of here and into the Chicago suburbs and then on over to Milwaukee. We got just a smidge of rain and wind, thank dog. Barb just had her shingles replaced this morning from the last wind storm.

    Sweet dreams!
