SOMTHIN' NEW EVERY DAY.. 6AM PHONE CALL... SOMEONE IS MINUS THIER DOG AND WANTED TO GET IT IN OUR DAILY DOGGIE
My daughter in law shared this information this morning. A dog sitter let these people's dog off lease in a strange place for the dog. I wasn't certain how to get this out to all of the SDP people in the area and hope you can post it for me. Unfortunately the message I received had no contact number.
My dog sitter lost my dog. Please share this with everyone you know, especially in the Topsfield, MA area. She took her to a strange area and let her out in the woods off leash. Maisey has never been lost or alone at night. Please help me find her before nightfall. She has a tag on her collar with multiple cell phone contacts for us. She's gentle and responds to her name and food. We're flying home from Colorado now''
the really wierd part is i think it was the owner from colorado who called me.... and the " my daughter "part seems to be an sdp person....

ONE OF THE WORST DAYS OF M Y DOG CAREER WAS THE DAY BROWNIE, A HUGE FRIENDLY MERLE WALKED DOWN THE DRIVEWAY WITH PANDY --- ( PANDEMONIUM - A WHITE DEAF--) AND THEY GOT SEPARATED --HE JUST LAY ON SOME BODYS FRONT LAWN AND WAITED FOR A RIDE HOME... SHE PANIC'D AND RAN.. FOR MILES--- AND I KEPT GETTING CALLS FROM ALL OVER ESSEX COUNTY-- AT ONE POINT RUNNING DOWN THE MIDDLE OF RT 1 ( WAS THE MAIN ROAD MAINE TO FLORIDA),... SLIGHTLY TIMID SHE WOULD NOT GO NEAR ANYONE FOR 3 DAYS-- FINALLY SOMEONE ON A GOLF COURSE GOT HIS BELT AROUND HER NECK...-- THE CONCEPT OF A CONFUSED DOG UPSET ME FOR YEARS.... STILL DOES... SO I HOPE WE CAN HELP FIND THIS DOG...
IT MAY BE RAINING ... BUT AT LEAST IT IS NOT COLD...
IT NOW BEING 6:34 I WANT TO GET ITHAT INFO OUT TO THE DOG WATCHING DD COMMUNITY BEFORE 7...
WE ARE DOWN TO ONE OVERNIGHT PERSON... WHICH MEANS WHOEVER GETS LITTLE TO NO SLEEP-- FURTHERMOTRER PAM RACED HOME TO BE THERE WHEN JOSE HITS THE CAPE.. HER HOUSE IS APPARENTLY 10 MILES FROM THE OCEAN.-- THE CAPE HAS THAT FUNNY ELBOW SHAPE SO ALMOST EVEYONG IS "NEAR THE OCEAN" I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY SHE WANTED TO GET THERE TO BOARD UP HER HOUSE-- BUT HAVING DONE THAT .... I PERSONALLY WOULD HAVE AT LEAST GONE ACROSS THE BRIDGE TO GET OFF THE CAPE-- IT IS A LITTLWE LIKE KEY WEST-- WITH LIMITED EGRESS-- I HAVE ONLY BEEN THERE ONCE IN MY LIFE...AND WOULD RESIST GOING BACK... AS I HEAR.. ON A GOOD DAY " THERE IS A 2 HOUR DELAY AT THE BRIDGE OFF THE CAPE..." WITH HORROR STORIES OF THE CARS CRAWLING ALONG RUNNING OUT OF GAS BEFORE THEY EVEN GET OVER TEH BRIDGE..... REMINDS ONE OF AN HOURGLASS-- ONE GRAIN OF SAND AT A TIME. I WOULD HAVE TROUBLE WITH THAT...
I REMEMBER.........AS A KID, EVERY TIME WE WENT TO THE MOVIES MY MOTHER WOULD REMIND US TO SIT NEXT TO THE EXIT..... SHE WAS WELL AHEAD OF HER TIME ON THAT ONE. THAT WAS EVEN WHEN THE ONLY FEAR OF MOVIE THEATERS WAS FIRE... AND TEH MOVIES WERE 12 CENTS --- 10 + 2 CENTS TAX.... I REMEMBER THOSE TICKETS...
I ALSO REMEMBER GOING TO THE MOVIES WITH MY SISTER-- TO ONE OF THE 3 THEATERS IN NEWBURGH THAT WAS NOT ON MOTHER'S PREFERRED LIST-- IT WAS A HOT DAY--BOTH OF US HAD LONG HAIR AND FLIPPED OUR HAIR OVER THE BACK OF THE FUZZY THEATER SEATS---IT WAS NOT LONG AFTER THAT MY MOTHER FOUND WE HAD "NITTS" -- LICE OR WHATEVER AND FIGURED OUT WE HAD BEEN TO THE "WRONG" THEATER... I DON'T KNOW IF MY SISTER FRAN REMEMBERS.... BUT I SURE CAN FEEL THAT NARROW LICE REMOVING COMB GOING THRU MY LONG HAIR...--HER ANGER WAS GREAT AS SHE SAID ,"I AM NOT GOING TO HAVE YOUR TEACHER CALL ME AND TELL ME MY DAUGHTER HAS LICE" I LOST ALOT OF HAIR THT DAY..
( TO ANYONE FROM NEWBURGH -- THERE WERE 2 THEATERS WITH YELLOW MARQUI CLOSE TO EACH OTHER WITH MGM FILSM ETC AND ONE OTHER WITH A GREEN FRONT.. CLOSER TO THE RIVER .. ON THE OTHER SIDE THE STREET -- ANYONE REMEMBER THE NAMES?)
THE "NEXT TO THE EXIT" SPEACH WAS ONE OF M ANY...-- SOME OF WHICH WERE FAR AHEAD OF HER TIME "WHEN A POLICEMAN SAYS STOP... YOU STOP" ALONG WITH "WHEN YOU MAKE JELLY, YOU NEED TO COOK IT IN A BIG FLAT PAN TO .. TO MAKE IT JELL.
SOME OF THESE THINGS ARE GENERATIONAL-- WHAT SCARES ME IS SOME CONCEPTS ARE JUST TOO LONG TO TEXT-- OR EXCEED TEH 140 WORD LIMIT OF ANY RATIONAL ARGUEMENT. I DID PASS ON JELLY PART -- TO GWEN WHO DID HOME MADE JELLY.. I AM SURE JANINE BENIFITED MORE FROM THE POLICE DON'T MOVE SPEACH...
A FRIEND UNEARTH ONE OF T HOSE "YEARLY LETTERS" I WROTE IN 1966 WHICH IS A FOR RUNNER TO THE CURRENT DAILY DOGGIE...
With the usual gay abandon we’ve made it thru another year. THIS IS 1966
Janine is almost two - what she lacks in age and size, she makes up in volume and confusion. She will tackle any project, usually with disasterous results. It’s virtually impossibleto accomplish anything with her underfoot – however she’s game for most anything.
Gwen aged four, is doing very well in kindergarden. It is a very formal private school and they seem to be going very fast. She is a year younger than the rest, but so far she is holding her own nicely. She rides a 2 wheeled bike now and a 10 mile ride doesn’t phase her.
* NOW THE VERY INTERESTING PART.... IN THAT SAME YEARLY LETTER THERE IS MENTION-- BOB KOLLER (HUSBAND OF 1966) AND MAKES MENTION OF A DR WHITE ( HUSBAND OF A FEW YEARS LATER)
BUT WHO'S COUNTING?
Sorry to be so slow to respond, I've been in Nashville for a week and didn't have a computer there. I've got a lot of catching up to do!
We are doing great! I had a long infusion last week and several appointments. I was worried that it would be difficult for him because my infustion was almost 7 hours. He was perfect! People came from all over the building to peek at him Every little bit he'd lift his head and put it on my knee to check me out then would settle back and nap some more.
We get out every day. It doesn't matter where we go he's just happy working. That's a huge change for me as I avoided going in public like the plague before I got him. He's perfect in stores, restaurants or just walking. We're doing great on the stairs and make sure we practice both at home and in a crowd. (I haven't practiced getting up from a fall in public but we practice several times a week at home)
I have only glowing compliments on his behavior when we're out. I haven't had any instances where he was not welcomed. He's so perfectly trained that no one questions him being a real service dog. He's famous at Trader Joe's. When we go there every employee there calls out "Bye Ned" from every corner of the store when we leave. It's funny, now even other customers join in.
I already can't imagine life without him. My daughter laughs at us because he's a "spooner" always trying to snuggle as closely as he can. He doesn't let me out of his sight. He walks every step with me even in the house.
I don't have words to describe the difference he's made in my life. He's the most devoted and loving fur baby ever! HIs kiss spot is going to be worn off before long! . Thank you so much for all you do!!!
NOW GO LOOK FOR THE LOST DOG...
