sept 28 2016
if  we don't develope more farmers we are not going to have enough strawberrys  or whipped cream for next year's dogfest...  we have alot of colleges in the north east-- and i just glanced thru harvard's curriculium and did not see one course on  the plowing of dirt-- but all kinds on the bending of minds ------ political science and legal  maneurvers.   
it has bothered mme for years that all the buuilding  around me/ boston... did not have to do with the production of anything  except paperwork.
.man can not live by  bread alone-- but it sure works better than a wad of papers.... especially with a drink of water... which along with trash is another favorite topic of mine....

now it is about the great lakes...  if we can pump oil across continents,  why can we not  drain some woater off those big lakes to water the strawberry growing  areas of california.
if we don't have those fields of food to process what would we do with all the people who pick the produce?
probably have to build some kind of wall to keep them out of our fields...
and having drained the great lakes to be able to water the green golf courses in las vegas,--- Niagara Falls would have to be renamed Niagara Trickle.

 i must congradulate  the genius that sold teh general public on the "paperless society" -- wata crock !!  if we outlawed the ability of the computer to skip lines  we could redesign printers to print and cut off..... to produce correctly sized pages and save gazillions of trees.  would someone please invent that for us????
such problems as  i have to worry about.....
*****
the person i met in the wrong store is coming here today---   we went thru a wrong phone number  for few hours.. finally spending 95 cents for one of those people finders... and then getting devlin to go to her address in saugus(devlin is saugus too..) which she did...  it must have been a shock to have the new person be introduced to 98 pound devlin who introduced herself - correctly- as one of our trainers...  devlin had wiht her, her dane "xxxxx" -- who out wweighs devlin...  "xxxxx"( i forget names) is very well trained... which is my criterier for deciding who is a trainer , and who is not.
anyone can hang up a sign that says trainer...  show me someone with a well trained dog-- or kid---  don't kid yourself... it really is about the same thing. .... except dogs are usually nicer about it.

Hi Carlene-
They say it takes a village...
Well... thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make the weekend at Dog Fest such a wonderful time. It’s impossible to begin to name the highlights because the highlights never stopped.

But it is the overwhelming feeling of knowing that Ava came from a most loving village, the SDP Village. From my first day at SDP, it was easy to see how Carlene, the trainers, and the volunteers helped make SDP what it is. Eventually, I started to realize the importance of Explore.org and the CP’s, and other recipients. But it was being with everyone together that made it real. It was hearing stories from people who had loved and/or worked with Ava and other dogs as young pups. It was seeing and talking with other recipients and their dogs. It was seeing Ava’s siblings and Scarlot. It was watching Ava’s tail wag when she saw old friends, both, human and canine. It was the CP’s who were always right there with a fluffy, to grab a plate, or to lend a hand with whatever was needed. And it was the hugs and smiles that will always stay with me.... cindy
**********
it was painful to have lost bailey, and more painful to realize that at 79 i doubt i will be able to develope another dog's training to her level... but i will try..... and i need help with the rules i have set in place.
thank you all for keeping your eye on my pup... i make rules around here that have a purpose--  some of you may not understand why i make these rules...  sometimes maybe i don't know either...however in the meantime,  when i ask people not to play with my pup so her attention can focus on me and my training until i get her better trained, i find it terribly disrespectful  to get up in the morning and  find pictures and  "carlene will never know" in the comments...  there are 50 other dogs around here.... all i ask is to leave my pup  alone...  enough said.

SEPT 27 2016
RAN OUT HT E DOOR THIS MORNING TO WELCOME THE RAIN WITH THE PUPPY RIGHT BEHIND ME.  SHE STOPPED AND SAID  " I BETTER GET OUT OF HERE ---SOMEBODY'S PUTTING  ALOT OF  THIS WET STUFF ALL OVER THE GROUND--AND  EVERYBODY GETS ALL EXCITED WHEN I PUT  ONE LITTLE PUDDLE IN  THE HOUSE.."
SHE  SAID THAT..
***********
 GOLDIE-- OUR "GHOST OF THE LEFTHAND DRAWER"----WAS AT  IT AGAIN...  AND THIS IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF HER MESSING WITH MY MIND.... GREAT STRANGENESS.
....1. WE WERE SHORT HANDED YESTERDAY WITHOUT RYAN, STEVE,BOBBY AND MEGANS SISTER HAD A BABY WHICH COMPLICATED HER WORK DAY....
...2 LORI SCHARY  SENT ME 2 MESSAGES ABOTU FINDING INDIAN FOOD( MUTTER PPANNEER TYPE)  IN "BIG LOT" STORES PER THE INTERNET...
...3. WE HAD PLENTY OF CP'S STILL HERE FROM DOGFEST- AND JUDY DIDN'T HAVE A SPECIFIC CHORE.
...4.  I WANTED TO GET OUT OF HERE  --- SO DID BENTLEY...AND DECIDED  LOOKING FOR INDIAN FOOD WAS AS GOOD A GOAL AS ANY SO  ASKED JUDY TO DRIVE...

THIS IS GOING SOMEWHERE SO HANG ON.

...5.  I KNEW WERE A BIG LOT STORE WAS- WE PARKED THERE AND I GRABBED A BIG LOT SHOPPING CART..I LET  BENTLEY FOLLOW ALONG AND WENT INTO THE STORE.
...6.   IF THEY HAD ANY CURRY IT WAS WELL HIDDEN AMID PILES OF PLASTIC JUNK-- ALL FOR $1
...7.  JUDY WENT TO FIND THE MANAGER TO ASK-- AND BEFORE SHE FOUND ME AGAIN , I HAD RUN INTO THE SAME  MGR AND ASKED ABOUT INDIAN FOOD...
...8.  HE ASKE WHAT ON EARTH MADE 2 DIFFERENGT PEOPLE ASK HIM ABOJUT  INDIAN FOOD.. WHICH HE NEVER HAD IN THAT  DOLLAR STORE.
...9. WHEN I SAID THE INTERNET  TOLD US   THAT  BIG LOTS IN DANVERS HAD KHOURRI PRODUCTS ---HE LAUGHED AND SAID -- "THAT IS BIG LOTS NEXT DOOR".

HANG ON...
...10. I WENT TO CHECK OUT MY COMBS AND MIRROR FOR $2 AND THE WOMAN IN THE NEXT LINE SAID  TO HER COMPANION " LOOK AT THAT GREAT DANE,   I LOVE DANES   ---I WISH NEADS HAD USED THOSE"
I HEARD NEADS... AND I WAS OFF AND RUNNING....-- TURNS OUT SHE SAID SHE  IS AN UNEMPLOYED DOG TRAINER FROM NEADS--- LIVES IN SAUGUS ( DEVLIN= SAUGUS)

WHY I  SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE WRONG STORE AT THE CHECK OUT WITH HER  WHILE I WAS BEING STREESSED ABOUT  DOGS NOT HAVING ENOUGH TIME OUT BECAUSE OF TOO MANY  TRAINERS /HELP GONE ALL AT ONCE.... HAS TO BE GOLDIE....
I GAVE HER MY NUMBER  -- AND SHE HAS CALLED-- I WILL TRY AND GET HER TO COME HERE SOON...SHE CERTAINLY LOOKED PERFECT...

  REMEMBERING THAT NEADS WAS STARTED AND ORGANIZED BY SHEILA O'BRIEN - WHO INSPECTED US FOR OUR ACCREDITATION WITH HER LONG RED FINGERNAILS AND MASSIVE KNOWEDGE ABOUT BUSINESS, NOT DOGS....
 I QUICKLY TOLD HER---- SHEILA MAY HAVE DEMANDED WE HAVE JOB DESCRIPTIONS AROUND HERE FOR ACCREDITATION, . "BUT IF THE TRUCK GETS STUCK IN THE MUD,, YOU GET IN THERE AND PUSH"

WITH GOLDIE MAKING THE DECISION TO LAND US IN THE SAME .... WRONG STORE...  AT THE SAME  TIME.. HOW COULD I EVEN THINK OF QUESTIONING HER QUALIFIACTIONS..?

ACTUALLY I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR WHY SHE LANDED THERE ...
 SO THAT IS THE BIGGEST EXCITEMENT--
****
THAT AND STUDYING THE ACTUAL PAYROLL NUMBERS -- WE HAVE A VERY HEALTHY PAYROLL  AND ARE STRUGGLING TO KEEP UP..  I GET WORRIED ABOUT THE FACT THAT WE ARE NOT  QUITE ½ SOLD OUT OF CHICKEN BRICK DONATIONS -- AND SHATTING SUNDAY IS  5 DAYS AWAY !!
EVERY BODY GOT DISTRACTED BY DOGFEST-...
 PLEASE ... DON;T FORGET.... I AM NOT ALLOWED THE LUXURY OF  TAKING A DAY OFF FROM PAYING THE PAYROLL.
*****
LAST NIGHT  WITH SO MANY CP DOG FSTERS LEFT ... WE WENT THRU WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE/LEAST FAVORTITE EPISODE..
HIGH ON THE LIST WAS 
** GARY'S NATIVE AMERICAN ( WHICH BELIEVE ME I HAVE HEARD THE FACT THAT IT IS NOT "INDIAN"  BUT NATIVE AMERICAN---) 
**JANINE'S DONKEY MARCH...
**OF COUSE ... THE FOOD....
THEY DIDN'T COME UP WITH LEAST FAVORITE...  
*****
TODAY AT 1:00 I  WILL START THE SNAIL MAIL CALL-- WHICH FOR A START WILL HAVE NOT MAIL TO READ-- BUT   DAWN... I AM COUNTING ON YOUR KIDS TO GET  ME GOING...
AND AM LINING UP NUTTY PROFESSOR THINGS TO DO.  IT JUST OCCURED TO ME TO FRY 2 EGGS AND EAT THEM TO PROVE   BROWN OR WHITE EGGS TASTE THE SAME.    THAT COULD BE FUN...

DO NOT EXPECT MY PROFESSORIAL LECTURES TO BE TERRIBLY SCIENTIFIC...  BUT RTHER-- MAYBE STOP AND THINK TYPE THINGS....
 I SHOULD BE ABLE TO EAT 2 FRIED EGGS WITHOUT TOO MUCH TROUBLE...
LEVERS AND SIPHONS ARE 2 OF MY FAVORITES TO EXPLOIT...
**********
HEALTH REPORTS
MYA REPORT--- TOO MUCH WATER DRINKING AN DPEEING... SHE DOES HAVE A KIDNEY INFECTION... GEORTGE HAS PUT HER ON  A SPECIFIC ANTIBIOTIC AND WE NEED A SAMPLE IN A WEEK...

WALTER IS ON 3 LEGS FOR UNKNOWN REASON.... WOKE UP THAT WAY...

MY PUP'S POOPS ARE PERFECT-- SHE GAVE US A SAMPLE IN HERE BECAUSE IT IS RAINING .
******

RUNNING ---DR APT...  9:30 AND 11 AM  SO I WILL BE GONE ALL MORNING...

SEPT 26 2016

WE HAVE HAD SOOOO MANY KIND WORDS ABOUT DOGFEST....  IT WAS DIFFERENT-- AS WE ALWAYS STRIVE TO BE...-- MIND BOGGLING????
WITHOUT A DOUBT..... I DID NOT SEE ONE PERSON WITH A COMPLAINT !!!! 
HIGHLIGHTS WERE 
TEH  BIZZARRE SPIRIT STICK PARADE... PEOPLE HAD SENT IN PICTURES OR WHATEVER - ATTACHED TO A PAINT STIRRER WHICH WE DISPLAYED AND THEN HAD A MARCH ,100 PEOPLE   HOLDING EACH  OF TEH 200+ TO THE CAMERA BEFOREE PUTTING THEM IN THE FIRE, THUSLY  CASTING THEIR SPIRITS TO THE WINDS OF  CRAZY ACRES... /NUTS???  YUP....
TO THE REAL INDIAN POW WOW - IN FULL HEADRESS WE  DANCED TO THE BEAT OF THE DRUMS AND SAW A MARRIAGE CEREMONY BETWEEN WALTER AND NOEL-- GARY ( OF ACTUAL INDIAN HERITAGE) -WAS  THE CHIEF -- HE TOLD OF MANY OF THE INDIAN RITUALS-- ALL SEEMED VERY LOGICAL  CONCENTRATING ON HARMONY WITH THE EARTH...
THE WILD CONFUSION OF TEH DONKEY EPISODE.. WAS AN UNEXPECTED DELIGHT.  ..JANINE BROUGHT HER 3 OVER AND ADDED THEM TO OUR BUNCH- SO WE HAD SEVERAL LOOK ALIKES-- PROBLEM THEN BECAME  WHICH BABY WHENT WITH WHICH  MOMMY-- NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN GET WRONG WITH OUT  BIG PROBLEMS.  AND WE HAD IT WRONG FOR ABOUT 5 LONG MINUTES.  JANINE HAD PLANNED THAT TH E BUNCH WOULD BE CONTROLLED BY  THESE FRYING PANS WE USE TO GIVE THEM TREATGS AND SNACKS... AND IT WOULD HAVE ... IF THE MOMMY'S HAD THEIR CORRECT BABY--
THE BABIES BEGAN TO PARTY AND RUN AROUND WITH DISTRAUGHT MOTHERS DRAGGING SOMEONE AROUND-- WITH HORSES IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A DISASTER.. WITH DONKEYS IT WAS LESS INCLINED TO BE A PROBLEM--- BUT IT WAS UNCONTROLLED AND FUNNY.
MANY PEOPLE HAD NEVER EVEN TOUCHED A DONKEY BEFORE AND HAD BEEN GIVEN THESE PURPLE FRYING PANS  WITHOUT MANY INSTRUCTIONS AS TO WHAT  TO DO WITH THEM... THE ENTIRE PICTURE WAS DELIGHTFUL.
**********
LORD KNOWS  THE FOOD EXCEEDED EVERYONE'S EXPEXTATIONS...  FOR CONTENT AND QUANTITY.. WE HAD FOOD !!  THERE ARE THINGS WE LEARN EVERY DOGFEST--- AND THIS WAS NO DIFFERENT...  SOMEHOW WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE SURE TO INVITE SANDY..... IF SHE IS NOT AN  ITALIAN WOMAN-  SHE ACTS LIKE A REAL ONE.... BECAUSE OF THEIR INSTINCT TO KEEP EACH TABLE AND PLATE FULL OF GREAT  FOOD AT ALL TIMES...  I EVEN SAW GEORGE (DVM.. GEORGE)GO BACK FOR MORE OF HER MEATBALLS  WHICH WERE GRANDMA'S RECIPIE...
ALL THAT WAS ON TOP OF THE LOBSTER CLAMBAKE WITH TRAYS OF SALAD  AND CORN ON THE COB. AND THAT CAKE....
THERE IS ALOT I MISSED OUT ON THE DETAILS....
I NEVER FOUND OUT WHO SENT THAT  MAMOUTH EDITTABLE ARRAINGEMENT  WHICH GOT STRIPPED PRETTY FAST.
BEST PART IS EVERYONE DID EVERYTHING-- THE "PURPLE SHIRTS" RAN THE DEAL- CHECKING WITH ME ONLY FOR EXECUTIVE DECISIONS... LIKE "SHALL WE SET THE CAKE ON THAT TABLE?"   
2 BIG SPIRIT STICK DISPLAY "UNITS" GOT MADE AND PUT TO USE...  NOW STRIPPED, THEY LOOK NAKED.. EXCEPT  --- IF WE LEAN THEM UP AGAINST THE LAUNDRY BUILDING THEY WOULD BE PERFECT CLOTHES HANGING DEVICES....FOR AIRING INSTEAD OF WASHING  NOT REALLY DIRTY FLUFFIES.
*******
 I REALLY JUST WANDERED AROUND ON THE GOLF CART WITH  THE PUPPY ( WHO HAS NO OFFICIAL NAME YET EXCEPT PHOENIX)
*****
ONE BAD DETAIL WAS  GRACE ENDED UP SITTING WITH THE PUPPIES WHEN WE DID THE VOLUNTEERS PHOTO... SO---- MARK.. CAN YOU STRIP HER IN  SOMEHOW... I FEEL BADLY ABOUT THAT... SHE IS SUCH A BACKBONE OF THE ENTIRE   SDP-- THE WORST ONE TO OVERLOOK...
****** 
THE BUILDING GOT GOING  UP 4 COURSES OF BLOCKS..2 GUYS AND JACK... PLUS SEVERALL VOLUNTEERS- THEY NEVER EXPECTED A LOBSTER DINNER WITH THE JOB....17 HOURS IN 2 DAYS-- PLANNED SAME FOR NEXT WEEKEND...
GOT TO HAVE A  FYI  -- MORTAR MIX AND CONCRETE ARE MUCH DIFFERENT-- THE MORTAR MIX DOES NOT HAVE THE  HURRY UP FACTOR LIKE CONCRETE--I WATCHED AS THEY MIXED THAT IIN THE WHEELBARROW- I EXECTED THEM TO HAVE TO HURRY BEFORE IT SET.. NOT SO WITH MORTAR MIX...
IFT WAS MUCH MORE CASUAL -- NO RUSH...
2 GUYS -- GOOD WORKERS....  BACK NEXT WEEKEND.
********
MARK GOT SOME  WONDERFUL PHOTO OPS-- WHICH HE WILL SORT THRU EVENTUALLY-- IT TAKES A WHILE-- I BET HE AS 10,000 PICTURES TO GO THRU... BETWEEN CAMERA AND DRONE CAMERA...
HE IS ORGANIZED---   DETALS  LIKE ----TO MANAGE TO HAVE THE DRONE 'S BATTERIES FULLY CHARGED F RO THE EVENT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZRE ME.  AND EARLY SANDY IS A BIG HELP TOO... SHE HAS THAT SAME MIND.... DON'T FORGET HE COOKED HAMBERGERS TOO AT SOME POINT.
AND FOUND APPROPRIATE MUSINC-- WHIHC IF YOU LISENED TO THE  WORDS OF HIS DOG MUSIC, INVOLVED SNIFFING REARS AND STEPPING IN WHAT DOGS LEAVE BEHIND....-- WHERE DOES HE FIND THIS STUFF?????
*********
EVERYONE STOPPED BY TO THANK ME--  WHICH WAS CERRTAINLY VERY NICE-- BUT  I THINK ALL KNEW-- THIS WAS AN EPISODE  MADE POSSIBLE ONLY BECAUSE OF THE DONATIONS TO THE CHICKENBRICKS... WHICH IS  MADE POSSIBLE BY EXPLORE.ORG... DOG BLESS YOU  AND CHARLIE OUT THERE IN CALIFORNIA.... ---- SEVERAL MADE REFERENCE TOTHE "SDP FAMILY"  OF CP'S.. WHICH IT CERTAINLY RESEMBLES... (WITHOUT ANY FAMILY SQUABBLES ) ONE SAID "DID I EVER THINK......? "   NO... HOW COULD I EVER KNOW THAT THIS EXPLORE.ORG  ORGANIZATION WOULD  ENCOURAGE SO MUCH PARTICIPATION WITHOUT ANY COMMERCIALISM...   SELLING ONLY  THE EXPERIENCE OF  EDUCATON AND ENTERTAINMENT MINUS THE ADVERTIZEMENTS ABOUT  BLOCKED DRAINS AND BUG KILLERS. 
MANY PEOPLE ASKED HOW I GOT INVOLVED WITH  DOG BLESS YOU  AND EXPLORE.ORG...
I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW.   .... AND  ...  I HAVEN'T HAD TIME TO ASK.

SEPT 25 2016

 GREAT CROWD!!!     AND   THAT CAKE !!----- OH THAT I COULD EMAIL THE PHOTO...  BUT SOMEONE MUST BE ABLE TO !!
AND WE DID EAT ¼ OF THE SECOND CAKKE...
LOBSTERS WERE TERIFFIC AS WAS TEH REST OF THE FOOD TOO...  I HAVE A FEELING ALOT OF PEOPLE DID NOT STAY FOR DINNER... OR THEY GAVE US THE WRONG NUMGER OF LOBSTERS BECAUSE WE HAD DOZENS LEFT...-- WHICH DID NOT GO TO WASTE...
I AM TOLD TEH CAMERA ANGLE WAS TERRIFFIC ALL DAY  AND THE ADDITION OF SOUND WAS  A HUGE BONUS SO PEOPLE  REALLY FELT LIKE THEY WERE PART OF TEH PROCEEDINGS.

AS FOR TODAY'S SCHEDU;ED EVENTS... NOT THAT I APPROVE OF SCHEDULING ANYTHING..... I AM TOLD THERE WILL BE A DONKEY PARADE MID MORNING SOMETHINE...-- OBJECT BEING TO GO AROUND THE POND WITH DONKEYS  IN PREP FOR BEING ABLE TO MAKE IT AAAROUND TEH "FOREST LOOP"  AS SOON AS WE GET THAT DITCH COVERED.....
APPARENTLY MANY PEOPLE WITH  A FEW DOGS  LIKE CHAOS....MADE IT AROUND TEH 1 HOUR LOO0P IN THE FOREST... AND SAID IT WAS "BEAUTIFUL.  CERTAINLY ONE PART OF IT IS THE  REALLY STEEP  GLACIER  BIT... WHERE YO WALK ALONG A RIDGE....  THE TRAIL IS NOT 100% GOLF CART PROOF.... NOT SURE IT EEVER WOULD BE...

--- TEH WALK.... MAY NOT ALL BE ON CAMERA, BUT THE EXCITING PART WILL BE ACROSS THE  AREA IN FRONT OF THE T TENT.. BECAUSE SOME OF THESE DONKEYS HAVE NEVER HAD HALTERS OR LEAD ROPES ON......I.E.  WILD...  ONCE TEHY GET THE HANG OF IT  THEY YSYALLY GO ALONG WITH  AT LEAST NOT FIGHTING... BUT FORWARD MOMENTUM IS SOMETIMES QUESTIONABLE...PLEASE REMEMBER... A FRIGHTENED DONKEY STANDS STILL.. A FRIGHTENED HORSE RUNS....-- SO THE USUALL GET BEHIND AND CLAP YOUR HANDS AND SCARE THEM  ONLY MAKES MATTER WORSE..  ESTABLISHING  STATIONS OF THE--- .. SOURCE OF FOOD.... MIGHT HELP...  SO THAT WOULD BE INTERESTING... 

 THEY SAY THAT WORKS WITH PEOPLE TOO, BUT I HAVE YET TO SEE ANY PEOPLE AS RELIABLE AS DONKEYS...

THERE IS A SIDELIGHT HERE---- JANINE HAD A PONY FROM THOSE SLAUGHTER PENS IN TEXAS- WHO WAS THE "DESPARATELY WILD SORT ALTHO IT WAS FAT AND ROUND  WITH TRIMMED FEET ( ALWAYS A CLUE) -  SHE WOULD GET CLOSE AND THE PONY WOULD PANIC AND TRY AND CLIMB THE FENCES.. AT FIRST WE ASSUMED-- JUST WILD... THEN WE THOUGHT MAYBE THEY WERE USING ELEFTRIC STOCK PRODS  TO MOVE THESE ANIMALS AROUND THE PENS... AND THAT PROVED  PROBABLY THE CASE... SO WE WENT THRU-- ( I.E.
   JANINE WENT THRU ) A PROCESS OF HALTERING AND HANGING ON AND GROOMING... FINALLY THE PONY WENT BACK TO RELAXING AND WE REFIGURED...  WAS PROBABLY  SOMEONES PET...  JANINE GAVE IT TO SOMEONE AS A LAWN ORNAMENT ( WHAT MOST OF THE EQUINES IN NEW ENGLAND ARE...FAT AND HAPPY) 
DONKEYS ARE NOT KNOWN FOR ERRATIC BEHAVIOR-- WHIC MAKES TEHM MUCH SAFER IN GENERAL THAN HORSES.. BUT WITH THE ELEMENT OF  POSSIBLE ELECT4RICITYIN THEIR HISTORY, ONE HAS TO BE PREPARED.

 PET PEEVE #965.....    THERE WILL BE NO WRAPPING ANY ROPE  OR LEASH  AROUND ANY HAND OR OTHER BODY PART.. THIS IS A LIFETIME LESSON OF THE DAY... LOOP  LOOP  LOOP  BUT NEVER WRAP AROUND--- EVEN A BIG DOG IS VERY CAPABLE OF  CAUSING A DISASTER-- ITIS ALSO WHY I HAVE  MADE LEAD ROPES FOR THIS PROCESS ONLY 4' LONG AND VERY FAT ROPE... NO WRAPPING... 
 SO WHILE WE ARE AT IT ...  DOCTORS AND NURASES VERY POETICALLY DRAPE STETHOSCOPES AROUND THEIR NECKS --  AND TRAINERS AROUND HERE DRAPE OUR SHORT ROPES WITH A RING  ( LEASHES)  AROUND THIER NECKS,   BUT ONLY A  STUPID FOOL PUTS TEH   END OF THE ROPE THRU THE RING.... NOOSE STYLE...  
  MURPHY WAS A PATIENT SOUL... JUST WAITING... 7TH LAW OF MURPHY  -- WHAT CAN HAPPEN , WILL HAPPEN  --
*****-----
 THE OTHER VERY EXCITING THING IS PHOENIX HIS DOIN' THE YUPPY   BEHIND ME WITH HER PAW  GETTING HER BREAKFAST ALL BY HERSELF...
****
THE BUILDING CREW   WILL BE BACK TODAY... THEY GOT THE CRITICAL FIRST LAYER DOWN.. THE REST SHOULD GO FASTER.... IT IS NOT ALL THAT SIMPLE  AND WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE  JACK PLUS TWO THINKERS DOING THIS...  I AM VERY COMFORTABLE THAT WE WOULD HAVE MADE  A MORE INTERESTNG MESS OF THIS HAD WE STARTED WITHOUT A PRO..
 THESE 2 ARE A HUGE LESSON IB INTERNATIONAL POLITICS...  THE ONLY ENGLISH WORD THEY UNDERSTAND IS "CASH"  A WORD  WITH WHICH I AM ALSO  FAMILIAR......
IF WE THROW OUT ALL THE ILLEGAL IMMAGRENTS- FIRSTLY HOW MANY BUSSES WILL THAT TAKE ?  AND WHO WILL MAKE TEH CHINESE CHICKEN  WINGS---  OR ...RUN ALL THE  "BROTHERS DELI" CAFETERIAS... OR   VARIETY STORES... OR ALOT OF  OTHER CASH  BUSINESSES...

OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM IS PREPARING ALOT OF THINKERS...NOT DO--ERS- WHO THEN ALL GO TO  CONGRESS EXCEPT WHEN THEY HAVE TO STAY AT HOME BECAUSE THEY CAN NOT GET A PLUMBER TO  STOP THE WATER FROM OVERFLOWING IN THE UPSTAIRS BATHROOM.
******
GREAT TO SEE SO MANY OF OUR GRADUATES HERE YESTERDAY...MANY WILL BE BACK TODAY... I HOPE MARK CAN GET A PICTURE OF THEM IN  ONE PHOTO...  ( HE HAD HIS DRONE HERE TOO  -- MARK LOVES HIS TOYS..... LUCKILY ...  A HUGE BENEFIT TO SDP)
****

 NORTHSHORE ACCAPELLA  GROUP SINGERS WERE TERRIFFIC-- PER USUAL...I WONDERED IF HE NEIGHBORS HEARD THEM TOO
THEY WERE INVITED.... I DON'T THINK  ANYONE CAME...
THERE WERE ALOT OF PEOPLE I DIDN'T RECOGNISE... BUT THAT ISN' T NEWS...
******
SO TODAY..... NORMAL STUFF-- HANGING AROUND    PLUS... 

BUILDERS ARE DUE BACK.......
TEH DONKEY WALK...MID MORNING
LUNCH .. WITH MARK?   AND LEFT OVERS...
THERE WILL BE SOME UNKNOWN ENTERTAINMENT SHORTLY AFTER LUNCH
SPIRIT  STICK  MARCH...SOMETIME LATER-- AND BEN AND JERRY ICECREAM  TRUCK (?VAN?)
AND MORE HANGING AROUND...

WE ARE OFF AND RNNING..

SEPT 23 2016

PEOPLE ARE ARRIVING---WE MAY HAVE TO AHVE TONIGHTS MAIL CALL OUTSIDE-- THERE ARE ALOT OF PEOPLE HERE....  WE HAVE THI SYSTEM OF ANYONE AT THE AIRPORT CALLS HERE WHEN THEY GET ON THE PEABODY SHUTTLE...  THIS SAVES KEEPING A LIST OF WHO ARRIVES WHEN... WHICH WE COULD NEVER KEEP STRAIGHT...
****
TUMBLER--- MASSIVE INFECTION-- EMERGENCY SURGERY REMOVING ALL HER REPRO PIECES...
WHY I DO NOT KNOW..  I HAVE NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM BEFORE  AND SHE IS THE SECOND THIS MONTH?? MORIAH  WSS THE SAAME THING-- UTERINE INFECTION  NOT CURED BY ANTIBIOTICS FOR 14 DAYS...  VERY STRANGE---  THEY ARE NOT  CLOSELY RELATED EITHER-  NOT SURE WHY THAT WOULD MATTER... JUST A QUESTION...
****
 WE HAVE FOOD...GREAT MEAL LAST NIGHT- PEOPLE BALANCING PLATES  ALL OVER..  A TABLE  WAS LONG AGO ELIMINATED AS JUST A HORIZONTAL PLANE TO FILL WITH  THE PROVERBIAL STUFF. 
*******
WE HAVE A COUPLE DOGS READY TO GO AFTER DOG FEST-- MEGAN SAID SO ... ACTUALLY SHE TOLD ME NOT TO PUT BENTLY OUT ON THE BACK DECK BECAUSE SHE DID NOT WANT TO TAKE ANY CHANCE OF HIM POKING HOLES  IN HER PERFECT DOG..
**********
MY PUPPY--- IN 3 DAYS-- CAN USE TEH YUPPY PUPPY ALL BY HERSELF---IT CAN BE DONE-- JUST A LITTLE CONCENTRATION ON A TRAINERS PART...  I FIND IT ANNOYING THAT  ALL THE PUPS CAN'T DO THAT... WE HAVE ALOT OF PEOPLE AROUND HERE....  EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE A DOG TRAINER.. WELLL THERE YOU ARE --- HAVE AT IT---- YOU CAN NOT DO IT IF YOUR ATTENTION IS DIVIDED  BECAUSE EVERY WRONG MOVE "UNTRAINS" THE DOG.
********
YET ANOTHER PHONE CALL ABOUT WATER USAGE....  DOG WASHING IS OUT--- MUD? LET IT DRY AND BRUSH IT.. 
*************
I WONDER IF ALL THE ARGUING IN THE MIDDLE EAST SINCE 1000 BC IS ACTUALLY DUE TO WATER--WE HAVE BEEN TRAINED TO BLAME IT ON OIL... BUT  YOU CAN'T DRINK THAT STUFF.
THE REASON I WONDER...  IPSWICH CALLED AGAIN...THERE IS A PICTURE IN THE BOSTON PAPERS ABOUT A  GROUP WHO SET UP A BBQ PICNIC IN THE BED OF THE NOW EXTINCT IPSWICH RIVER...
THE LACK OF WATER HAS NO EQUAL- HOWEVER.. WE HOPE IT WILL BE RESOLVED IN MAYBE SEVERAL YEARS... IN THE MEANTIME....JANINE LIVES ON THE IPSWICH RIVER... AND HAS HAD PROBLEMS WITH HER NEIGHBORS COMPLAINING ABOUT HER FENCE BEING 94 FEET INSTEAD OF THE REQUIRED 100 FOOT BUFFER ZONE AROUND THE RIVER...  GO TAKE SOME PHOTO'S NOW..
****************
FACT IS-   WE MUST CUT DOWN... AND WE CAN...I CAN NOT ACCEPT THE LOCAL "OH THEY WIOLL HOOK US UP TO  BOSTON'S WATER SUPPLY  AND EVERYTHING WILL BE AS BEFORE"
NOT NECESSARILY . I HEARD QUABAN IS DOWN 30 FEET-- AND MANUFACTURING WATER HAS NOT BEEN PERFECTED YET AND SINCE WE HAVE MASSIVELY CONTAMINGATED EVERYTHING AROUND US... WE ARE IN DEEP DO-DO..  WHAT IF WE WERE LIMITED TO 10 MINUTES OF RUNNING WATER TWICE A DAY?    THAT COULD HAPPEN-- BECAUSE WHEN YOU HAVE NO WATER-- YOU HAVE NO WATER.
HISTORICALLY , I KNEW THIS AS MY BUYING THIS PROPERTY WAS HEAVILY INFLUENCED BY THE BIG LAKE ACROSS THE STREEET ( WHICH IS DOWN 3 FEET..)

WE MAY AS WELL PRACTICE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO HAVE WATER ONLY  A FEW MINUTES A DAY...  SINCE IT COULD COME TO THAT...

 TEH REASON WE CAN,  IS WE HAVE TO STOP WITH THE NEGATIVE ABOUT WHAT WE CAN NOT DO....HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I BLOWN THAT HORN ABOUT EVERYTHING TO DO WITH SDP...  STOP WITH THE "NOT'S"
THE SONG "LATCH ON TO THE AFFIRMATIVE- ELIMINATE THE NEGATIVES"  I NEVER UNDERSTOOD THE NEXT LINE ABOUT  "DON'T MESS WITH MISTER IN BETWEEN"  BUT WE CAN SKIP THAT PART..

WE HAVE A $1000 A MONTH WATER BILL   AND WE DO HAVE A VERY EXPENSIVE DEEP WELL  THAT PRODUCES  WATER  THAT IS SAFE TO DRINK- BUT IS BROWN AND HAS  SO MUCH METAL IN IT , YOU COULD ALSO MINE IT.   A HOSE HOOKS TO IT  IN THE FLAT FIELD...

 FIRSTLY------I HAVE HEARD- BY THEM AS SOUND LIKE THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT...   THAT THE DRYER REMOVES AS MUCH ACTUAL DIRT AS THE WASHER....  WELL LETS HAVE AT THAT ONE...-- HERE WE ARE  SHAKING AND HANGING CLOTHESLINES-- WHILE FORGETTING WE HAVE ARTIFICIAL CLOTHES LINES IN OUR DRYERS...-- GRANTED IF THERE IS  A MASSIVE MESS- WE CAN EITHER DUNK IT IN TH E CREEK OR THROW IT OUT..  BUT FOR 98% OF OUR LAUNDRY IS JUS A VAGUE  ODOR... WHICH WE WILL NOW TRY AND REMOVE MINUS WATER..  AND JUST BECAUSE WE THINKG FABREEZE SMELLS NICE--- I AM NOT CONVINCED THE DOGS THINK IT IS WONDERFUL... SO LETS NOT GO THAT ROAD...AND I AM GOING TO THROW MY SHEETS IN THE DRYER AND SEE HOW THT GOES..

SECONDLY... BY SWITCHING A CIRCUIT BREAKER IN THE CELLAR WE CAN PRODUCE MANY GALLONS UNDER PRETTY GOOD PRESSURE--- HISTORICALLY I HAVE RUN THAT PUMP IN AUGUST FOR 3 DAYS TO WATER THE FLAT FIELD...- NOW I AM THINKING  RUN THAT HOSE OVER TO THE KENNELS AND  RUN IT FOR A FEW MINUTES  TO SCRUB THE OUTSIDE KENNELS A T LEAST..

THIRDLY--- TWENTY YEARS AGO I HAD A FRIEND WHO'S MOTHER LIVED IN A  HOUSE IN HAMILTON ( A  HIGH RENT DISTRICT )    WITH OUT RUNNING WATER  -- I WAS  QUIETLY  HORRIFIED, BUT THEY HAD EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL...  SHE HAD WATER DELIVERED FOR DRINKING AND COOKING... AND EVERY DAY HER SON WOULD FILL 3 OF THOSE WHITE 3 GALLON .BUCKETS WE USE FOR SCOOPING -- WIHT WATER AND LEAVE THEM NEXT TO THE TOILET FOR FLUSHING.   BATHING AS DONE AT THE " MAIN HOUSE"   NO PROBLEMS....THE SYSTEM WORKED-

WE MAY BE COMING TO THAT..
**************
Good morning.. sorry it's been a while... Rogue is doing wonderful! She is quite the communicator! She is always ready to help. It makes her happy when she is working.  We all love you lots! We will stop by during dogfish on saturday. Just to say hello to all the wonderful supportive cps.  As I look back to 2003 when we met I can't believe how much sdp has grown and it makes me proud that you have help so many people and improved their lives as you did mine.  Sdp is truly a blessing and gift to the people you help and have donated dogs to.  Thank you so much. I am looking forward to this saturday. John will be with me and my 4 kids and of course rogue!

♡ Melissa and Rogue! 🐕

I WOULD LOVE TO TAKE CREDIT FOR  THIS NEXT ONE... HE FORGOT TO MENTION ALL THE PEOPLE WHO PICKED THE POOP, FOLDED THE LAUNDRY AND  WLKED AROUND SHOPPING CENTERS IN THE RAIN TO TRAIN.. ALL I DID WAS TO DRINK COFFEE...

Hi Carlene
It's been a year all ready since you gave me my lifesaver. My life has gotten so much better. I can never thank you and every one involved at SDP enough.  You are a very special person, you have made such a huge impact on my life. I wish more people thought like you. The world would be a much better place.
Thank you again!
Jack

SEPT 22 2016

DOG FEST IS BEGINNING TO FESTER-----  AMONG THE CP'S GATHERING....... JERI AND STEVE ARE HERE---  FOR YOU NEW PEOPLE.. THEY ARE THE AMAZING COUPLE WHO READ THE DIRECTIONS AND PUT UP THE G-TENT WITHOUT ONE ARGUEMENT      I HAVE NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE IN MY LIFE.--SO I ASKED STEVE IF HE KNEW ANYTHING BOUT CONCRETE BLOCKS.. AND HE SAID "I BET I WILL BY SATURDAY"... GOOD ATTITIUDE..
CONCRETE IS BENG POURED ON FRIDAY-- I THINK WE NEED TO HAVE  A SMALL SQUARE SET UP SO MAYBE THEY CAN POUR US A DOGFEST SQUARE FOR PEOPLE TO SIGN THIER NAMES IN...

BUILDLING IS BEING DELIVERED TODAY   WITH ALOT OF PIECES... PLAN IS OT MOVE TEH PALLETS FROM PURINA AROUND THE BUILDING AND  MOVE TEH BLOCKS TO THAT AREA 
SO WE CAN  USE THE HELP WE HAVE  TO DO WHAT THEY ARE BEST AT... LUG AND CARRY FOR  THE ONES WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING .

I WISH I HAD A  VIDEO OF THE SET UP THEY NEED... I THINK A PIECE OF PLYWOOD ON SAWHORSES IS NEEDED-- NOT SURE EXACTLY WHERE.
******
SDP IS MAKING 2 HUGE STRIDES FORWARD-- HOPEFULLY THE BUILDING IS ONE OF THEM..
THE SECOND IS THE CONNECTION TO THE BAY STATE TRAIL, BY CUTTING  THRU THE UNDERBRUSH FROM OUR GATE IN "A", IT IS AN INTERESTING WALK TO MEET UP WITH IT IN WILLOWDALE STATE FOREST.. AND LOOP AROUND OUR PROPERTY IN ABOUT A 45 MINUTE STROLL.  UPHILL AND DOWN.... THERE IS ONE POINT WHERE TH E TRAIL IS ABOUT 12 FEET WIDE AND THERE IS A 100 FOOT DROP ON EITHER SIDE..GLACIER TYPE --- WLLOWDALE IS FULL OF THOSE LONG WINDING RIDGES.....

Most eskers are argued to have formed within ice-walled tunnels by streams which flowed within and under glaciers. They tended to form around the time of the glacial maximum when the glacier was slow and sluggish. After the retaining ice walls melted away, stream deposits remained as long winding ridges.

TH BAY STATE TRAIL GOES FROM CAPE ANN TO CAPE COD - IT IS WELL DEFINED...

IF WE CAN GET /KEEP THE TRAIL OPEN  EVENTUALLY  JANINE  HAS IN MIND HAVING DONKEY WALKS AROUND THAT PATH...- TO DO THAT WE WOULD EITHER HAVE TO GET THE TRACTOR IN TO COVER ONE VERY SMALL V DITCH.. WHICH INSTEAD OF THE BRIDGE OTHERS ARE TRYING TO BUILD THERE, JUST PLAIN COVER A PIPE--- AND WE HAVE ONE IN THE V PEN AS A PUPPY TOY...

I KNOW THE  "POWERS" THAT BE WILL COMPLAIN ABOUT THE RED FLAGS WSE HAVE IN TEH WOODS RIGHT NOW...  BUT AS SOON AS WE GET THE TRAIL DEFINED WE CAN MODIFY THOSE..  THT DITCH WOULD ALSO BE A GREAT GE PROJECT  BUNCH A OF GUYS WITH SHOVELS  AND WE WOULD NOT NEED THE TRACTOR.
BESDIES YOU WOULD GET THE DONKEYS OVER A PLYWOOD BRIDGE ONLY WITH A GREAT DEAL OF DIFFICULTY... AND A HORSE WOULD BE DANGEROUS...

'MAYBE THAT SHOLDU BE THE PRIORITY OF THE DAY... MAYBE A SQUIRT OF PAINT ON THE GROUND MIGHT BE BETTER AT THE MOMENT --- THOSE RED FLAGS ARE BOUND TO BE OFFENSIVE...

********
LOTS OF DAILY DOGGIES ARE INFLUENCED BY MY SUBCONSCIOUS RETENTION OF WHAT WAS ON THE TV WHEN I FELL ASLEEP...I WOKE UP THIS MORNING THINKING WE HAVE SOME OF TEH BEST TRAINED LAW ENFORCEMENT PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.. TO HAVE LOCATED THE NY BOMB GUY IN LESS THAN 48 HOURS IS AMAZING... I AM SURE CONSTANT RETRAINING IS A REQUIREMENT.
NOW HOW ABOUT TRAINING OF THE PUBLIC...

I CAN REMEMBER... HERE WE GO AGAIN.... AS A TINY   REDHEADED KID OF 8 OR 10 --  MY MOTHER WHO WAS LOOMING LARGE OVER ME-POUNDED INTO MY HEAD... IF A POLICEMAN TELLS YOU TO  STOP AND  STAND STILL  YOU DO  EXACTLY THAT-THAT  IS YOUR HIGHEST PRIORITY.   BOY DO I REMEMBER THAT LECTURE-- AND  I MENTIONED IT TO JANINIE  THE OTHR DAY - SHE SAID I GAVE THEM THE SAME FRIGHTENING LECTURE-- WHICH SHE HAS GIVEN TO HER SON COLBY.  
MY MOTHER WAS WRONG ABOUT ALOT OF THINGS- LIKE PIANO PLAYING AND SPELLING... BUT THAT LECTURE HAD A REAL TONE TO IT- THE FACT THAT I PASSED IT DOWN 2 MORE GENERATIONS GIVES IT CREDENCE.  SHOULD THIS NOT BE MENTIONED IN SCHOOLS?  YOU DO EXACTLY WHAT THE POLICE TELL YOU TO DO FOR TEH INSTANT-- AND ARGUE ABOUT THE FACTS LATER.

 NOW....  ABOUT GENERAL IQ AND MOTIVATION....
WHICH DO YOU THINK IS THE  MORE RELIABLE GROUP,   THE LAW ENFORCEMENT  GROUP OR A BUNCH  18 TO 25 YEAR OLDS WHO HAVE HAD A FEW BEERS?
I FORGET WHO SAID " NO LAW EVER GOT CHANGED BY TURNING OVER A POLICE CRUIZER"
*****
I BET YOU 'D GET NATIONAL ATTENTION IF YOU GOT 5 PEOPLE WEARING SANDWICH BOARDS..OUT ON THE HIGHWAY...... WITH AN OPINION...IT HAS BEEN DONE BEFORE... REMEMBER THE  
....
IS HE LONESOME
OR JUST BLIND
THE GUY WHO DRIVES
SO CLOSE BEHIND
BURMA SHAVE

THE SAFEST RULE
NO IF'S OR BUT'S 
IS DRIVE LIKE EVERYONE
ELSE IS NUTS.
BURMA SHAVE.

WE READ THOSE SIGNS  ----WE EVEN LOOKED FORWARD TO FINDING THAT CLEVERNESS  BY THE ROAD...
 NOW....IN SPITE OF TEH FACT THAT TH E DESIGNER OF THESE BILLBOARDS MAKE HIGH SALARIES, THERE IS NOTHING CLEVER ABOUT  A HUGE SIGN THAT SAYS  "DRINK COKE"
HOW DRAB....HAVE WE TAUGHT  OUR FUTURE GENERATION TO NOT HAVE ANY CREATIVITY.?...(GOOGLE THAT TED LECTURE KEN ROBERTSON )
***********
WATER...  WE HAD ANOTHER CALL FROM TEH TOWN... NOT ONLY IS OUTSIDE WATER BANNED... BUT PLEASE RESTRICT INDOOR USE.  WITH THE CALIFORNIA JINGLE "IF IT'S YELLOW, LEAVE  IT MELLOW, IF IT'S BROWN , FLUSH IT DOWN" 

OK...I ALSO THINK WE SHOULD BE  SHAKE AND AIR... INSTEAD OF WASH ALL OUR FLUFFIES... IT WILL LOOK WIERD... BUT  THERE IS ALOT WE DO NOT NEED TO WASH...
ESPECIALLY IF WE HANG STUFF INTHE NICE SUNNY BREEZES ( WITHOUT ANY RAIN) 

 CLOTHESLINE INSTALATION WILL BE A PROJECT OF THE DAY.... AND   LOCATION OF TEH CLOTHESPIN COLLECTION   IF WE HANG THIS STRAIGHT DOWN  THEY WILL IMPPROVE.
FENCES ARE OK... BUT THE DOGS PULL STUFF IN THE KENNELS  SO WE NEED CLOTHESLINES ALONG THE FENCES....OUTSIDE....

 FROM  TWAN
"CHECK THE FACTS BEFORE YOU CRITICISE 'FOREIGN' INFORMATION OR DIFFERENT WAYS OF DOING THINGS ABROAD".

OUCH !!!
SOMEHOW TWAN THOUGHT I WAS CRITICAL  OF FOREIGN WAY OF DOING THNIGS..
LORD KNOWS I WOULD BE THE LAST ONE IN THE WORLD TO SAY TEH AKC WAS DOING THINGS  BETTER THAN THE REST OF THE  WORLD !!  

I NEVER MEANT THE CONVERSATION ABOUT FOREIGN PASSPORTS TO BE OFFENSIVE... JUST INSTRUCTIONAL . TRYING  TO  GIVE DD READERS THE BENEFIT OF MY ERROR.
