June 18th, 2011


PISTOL/AKA CLARA...  SPENT THE NIGHT DIGGING AND WANDERING WHILE I HAD NIGHTMARES OF DELIVERING 2 MERLES AND ONE HARL-- you have no idea how much noise she can make with toenails on sofa cushions  ----- she can not be preg...but in case--- we will take her temp today  (drop to 98 degrees means whelping within 24 hours)  i don't know what she is intending to whelp... SHE HAS NO TUMMY
COMPARED TO OLIVE WHO HAS THAT FAMILIAR SAG-- WITH A WEEK TO GO
FRED AND EMMA ARRIVED AND WE SPENT A COMFORTABLE AFTERNOON WATCHING THE SURROUNDINGS - LIKE MOVING THE  5 PUPS AROUND...ETC
TODAY THEY CAN DO THE PUPPY CALL AND FEED--
SOME DISCUSSION WAS HAD ABOUT GOING TO THE BRUINS PARADE--- I SUGGESTED TRAIN--ACTUALLY MY PREFERRED IS A 3 MINUTE CLIP ON THE NEWS. ---BEING NEW YORKERS A MOB SCEENE AND TRAFFIC JAM DOES NOT PHASE THEM.
BUD2 ,STEPH, ART AND A FEW OTHERS MADE HAMMERING NOISES-- I DON'T KNOW IF ANY TUNNELS GOT MADE-- BUT THEY ALL SEEMED HAPPY WHILE WANDERING AROUND WITH PIECES OF LUMBER..
AND THE POT GOT A GOOD SCRUBBING IN PREP FOR THE STEW.
AND PAUL THE PLUMBER GETS THE BLUE RIBBON FOR TACKLING THE DEAGLE HILL WITH THE WEED WHACKER/MOWER -- THE ONE ON WHEELS-- GOT ALL THOSE BIG LEAVED THINGS THAT PRODUCE 
 BURRRRRS.
FRANKIE IS A BIG HIT WITH HIS NEW OVERNIGHT Family--SO BOBBY IS BACK WITH RHEA TIL FRANKIE  COMES BACK
AND BARBARA DID CALL-  SHE MIGHT EVEN BE HERE-- WE ARE SET FOR HER IN THE TRAINING ROOM WITH THE 2 BEDS THERE- SHE WILL COME AND GO AT RAMDOM- AS SHE IS IN A TERRIBLE SITUATION WITH KC-- I DO NOT THINK HE HAS REGAINED CONSCIOUSNESS YET-- BUT THEY DID GET A SCREW IN HIS NECK.
OTHER THAN THAT---
TODAY-- I DUNNO-
HILLARY IS GETTING HER SISTER MARRIED SO WE HAVE SUB'S DORCHESTER KATIE FOR THE MORNING AND SUNDAY SANDY FOR THE AFTERNHOON--- WITH THERESA IN THE LATE MORNING--
AT SOME POINT I HAVE TO GET DOG FOOD AND STEW STUFF AT COSTCO-- BUT WHEN DEPENDS ON FRED AND EM-- THEY MIGHT THINK IT FUN TO  DO A COSTCO RUN WITH SOME DOGS. 
AND THEN THERE IS PISTOL  WHO IS SQUEEZED IN SITTING BEHIND BAILEY--  LOOKING AT ME WITH THE "I Am  a very tall dog" look.  while baliey does not move.
bad thing--- PI has taken to cleaning up bailey's left eye-- the one with the tiny pinpoint of a bump in the corner-- eagle eyes george saw that  months ago-- and gave it a nasty name-- like tumor---
 FROM CHICAGO
even tho i don't have an SDP dog (i wish i did) i still read the dd with interest.  please let barbara know that she and her son are in my thoughts and prayers.............i hope her son has a complete recovery.

AND TEXAS
SDC11011.jpg   You sent out an e-mail about Bobby and Luna's last litter together.  You forgot to mention Stormy was in that litter.  She is hurt because she thinks she is quite beautiful, too.
   She is getting bigger.  I can't believe that Great Danes continue to grow after they reach two, but it happens.  One day she fit in her harness, the next it was too small.  My vet, Barry guessed her final weight at 130.  She laughs at that.  I am thinking she is over 150 pounds but that is a guess.  I need to have her weighed.  She has the one blue eye and like her brother, Hudson her other eye is half blue and half brown.  Hers is split horizontal, causing her to look like her eye is half shut.  She also uses it to look evil sometimes when she is contemplating an action I might not like.  She has learned to fetch toilet paper out of the cupboard, which is handy when you are sitting and realize you have run out.  You don't have to panic, Stormy will bring it.  It has teeth marks in it, but after you use a few sheets they disappear.  For the people who helped her grow from birth to 8 weeks old, she was Clipper.  I have attached two photos of her.  One is of her sitting with Cinder under a table at Starbucks.  She insists on being under the chair.  I don't make her do that.
   I miss everyone there and hope to come up there in the fall.  It was 103 degrees today, so maybe we should come now???

Life is not a race.
Life is a ride.
Enjoy it!

My bicycle is my lifeline to the world.
My assistance dogs make my life easier,
A little lick and some dog hair are heaven.
Cinder and Stormy say, "Woof!"
