April 24, 2011


ALL IS WELL
 
PUPPIES ALL OVER THE LIVING ROOM
 
COUPLE COMMENTS
 
THE LESSON OF THE IMMEDIATE EXCUSE
 
RE: PATTING PUPPIES ON THE HEAD.
 
JODI ( WHO HAS A DANE SERVICE DOG) SAYS SHE HAD AN AUNT WHO PATTED HER IN THE HEAD - AND SHE HATED IT-- SO WE MAY BE ON TO SOMETHING--
 
NO HEAD PATTING- PAT THE OTHER END- WHATEVER.
 
WE HAVE HAD  MORE THAN A FEW DOGS THAT HAVE HAD NO EXCUSE FOR BEING HEAD SHY-- GET IN PUBLIC WITH A  DOG LIKE MANNY WHO RUNS BACKWARDS AT THE SIGHT OF SOMEONE'S HAND--- AND IMMEDIATELY THE PUBLIC WILL SAY 
"MUST BE A RESCUE WHO WAS BEATEN--- "
AT WHICH POINT I HATE TO SAY - "NO HE WAS BORN AT OUR PLACE" 
 
THERE IS ONE HUGE LESSON HERE
AND I AM IN TO  it ?how many years?  30ish?
WE HAVE HAD OUR SHARE OF HEADSHY DANES -- AND I STAND AROUND AND SAY "DANES ARE NATURALLY TIMID"  WHICH THEY MIGHT BE--- BUT I  HAVE ALSO USED THAT AS AN EXCUSE TO STOP THINKING--- THERE WAS AN IMMEDIATE EXCUSE
 
I TOOK IT-- I AM BAD-  I HATE THAT IN OTHER TRAINERS-- AND I BET I HAVE DONE IT THERE--
 
WE WILL NOW CHANGE...  PAT THE OTHER END  AND SEE WHAT THE RESULTS ARE IN 5 YEARS
 
WILL SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF THAT????????
************************
 
NOW FOR THE BUSINESS DISCUSSION OF THE DAY
 
I CHANGED CAR INSURANCE TO GEICO-- AND WAS SHOCKED AT THE PRICE OF THE SAME COVERAGE--
BUT THE REAL SHOCKER IS THE PAPERWORK INVOLVED..
 
GEICO EMAILED ME A BUSINESS CARD SIZE NOTE  TO CARRY WITH ALL THE INFO I NEEDED.
 
THIS FARM FAMILY ----MY OLD INS COVERAGE----JUST SENT ME 3 PAGES  OF NUMBERS, DOLLAR SIGNS, BIG WORDS , EXPLINATION OF THE BIG WORDS ( WHICH I DO NOT UNDERSTAND) - THINGS THAT ARE EXCLUDED IN ILLLINOIS AND CALIFORNIA-- AND NO WHERE DOES IT HAVE THE VEHICLE INVOLVED.
 
I STAND CORRECTED--- 2 PAGES OF INFO-- THE THIRD SHEET IS ABSOLUTELY BLANK
 
 NO IDENTIFYING THE VEHICLE-- INK IS EXPENSIVE  I GUESS...
***
COVERAGE OF THE BMW WAS  ABOUT 950/YEAR WITH FARM FAMILY - AND GIECO GAVE US THE SAME COVERAGE FOR $550
 FOR BOTH  BMW AND DURANGO .
 
IT PAYS TO LISTEN TO LITTLE GREEN LIZZARDS.
***********************
 
TODAY-
 
I BRAVED THE STORM YESTERDAY WITH MANNY AND WENT FULL CIRCLE OF COSTCO-- I DON'T OFTEN USE THE WORD "MADHOUSE"  BECAUSE OUR NORMAL LIFE AROUND HERE APPROACHES THAT TERM...   BUT IT WAS CROWDED-- TO THE POINT THAT HE DID  NOT HAVE ROOM TO SHY FROM ANYONE.  AND HE WAS GETTING BETTER
'
I WILL ONLY SLIGHTLY MENTION THAT HILLARY HAD TESS WITH HER--- AND NEEDED HER CARDBOARD--- TWICE.
 
THE ONLY REASONS I MENTION THAT  IS--- SOMETHING WILL TEACH ALL OF YOU TO USE A COUPLE PIECES OF CARDBOARD TO SHOVE A PLASTIC BAG IN YOUR BLUE JEAN POCKET..... AT ALL TIMES..
 
AND THE SECOND TRICK OF THE TRADE IS TO USE THE SHOPPING CART TO HIDE WHATEVER UNTIL YOU CAN CLEAN IT UP--- AND PEOPLE WILL ASSUME YOU SPILLED SOMETHING OUT OF THE CART.
 
AND IF THE DOG YOU ARE HANDLING HAD A HAM SANDWICH YESTERDAY--- YOU COULD EASILY MAKE THAT 4 CARDBOARDS AND 2 GROCERY BAGS---  
 
EXPERIENCE COMES FROM BAD EXPERIENCES
 
I HAD MINE IN AN AIRPORT IN GERMANY  WITH A VERY CONFUSED PUPPY AND  A STACK OF BEVERAGE NAPKINS THAT ONE PERSON HANDED ME-  THE REST OF THE PLACE WAS LAUGHING AT THE FOOLISH AMERICAN WHO DID NOT PLAN AHEAD.
 
YOU WILL LEARN - ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.
********************
 
SCHEDULE TODAY-
 
USUAL SUNDAY
WE WILL BE HERE--- WITH HAM AND SOME EARLINE PRODUCTIONS- SO WE SHOULD NOT STARVE...
-- SHOULD BE A NICE ONE-- WE MAY GET THE PUPS TO THE T-TENT -- OR AT LEAST THE V-PASTURE.
******************
 
WE DO HAVE A PUP OR TWO WITH AN ODD COUGH--  COULD BE THE INTRO OF SOLID FOOD AND THEY DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH PRACTICE AT SWALLOWING YET... 
BUT I DON'T REMEMBER THIS BEOFRE
 
GFEORGE SAID MAYBE A SLIGHT CASE OF KENNEL COUGH
 
IT IS SLIGHT-- BUT EVERYONE SHOULD NOTE WHEN ETC...  IT IS MINOR--- I HOPE IT IS NOT FRANKIE  OR MERLOIW --- THEY DON'T COUGH
 
*********************
 
JANINE IS PUTTING THIS ON THE BLOG--- SO IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON JOINING US ON A SUNDAY--- IT IS POT LUCK- 
*************************
CUTTING AND PASTING.....
