July 14, 2011


lean forward- was stuck on my tv screen this morning while the  TVstation had a fire alarm-  that is as good a suggestion as any
 
gay and heydawg got "APPROVED "AT  that HR meeting
 
extremely interesting--- they  had advice from their attorney  which was legally correct--- ON PAPER---the 2 questions ---do you need the dog because of a disability  and  what work is the animal trained to do...
 
per ADA  THAT IS ALL THEY CAN ASK--- AND THAT IS ALL THAT IS ON THE PRINTED PAPER THEY GAVE HER--
 
THE  PROBLEM WAS... VERBALLY  THEY ASKED ALOT OF THE QUESTIONS BENT ON INTIMIDATION.   -- REQUIRING MEDICAL REPORTS FROM HER DR-  AND TRAINING REPORTS FROM SDP...  INCLUCING HEALTH CERTIFICATES ETC.
 
I HAD DUPLICATED THOSE EXACT TOPICS FROM THE ADA--- AND LEFT THEM WITH THE 2 WOMEN -  EXPLAINING I WAS NOT AN ATTORNEY  BUT  SUGGESTING THEY REVIEW THEM WITH THEIR ATTORNEY. 
 THERE WAS ALOT OF  LANGUAGE ABOUT HR APPROVING THE ACCOMODATION OF A SERVICE DOG..  TO WHICH I CONSTANTLY SAID- THERE IS NO ACCOMODATION-- JUST IGNORE THE DOG.
 
i had given them a copy of heydawg's adi  public access test with the always --sometimes  never  rating--- and the one thing i had rated "sometimes" was the down command--- because with a service dog --- down means find a place to get comfortable--we are going to be here a while"  it is not the obedience show dog "down " which means "drop.. now"  
one of these HR women wanted to be sure i was still working on that--- so i explained  very politely..... 
 
I ALSO HAD BAILEY WITH ME--- BEHAVING PERFECTLY- SNORING SLIGHTLY AS THEY WENT THRU THEIR "MUST BE UNDER CONTROL" SPEECH.
 
I BEHAVED AS WELL AS I COULD.
IT WAS NOT EASY.

LEANING FORWARD
 
KAREN AND DIDI ARE DOING VERY WELL  WE HAVE GONE THRU THE "HOW TO OPEN A DOOR" KIND OF THING---  WORKING FORWARD TO THE GEROGETOWN TOWN HALL--- WITH IT'S FLIGHT OF STAIRS.
 
didi is doing considerably better with the"A BIG TURCK IS PASSING US"  SYNDROME.
 
THEY ALL HAVE SOMETHING---
 
GAY ASKED IF BAILEY HAD ANY SQUIRRELEY THINGS-- AND I SAID NO--- WITHOUT THINKING TOO MUCH--- BECAUSE HER BLUE EYES WERE CERTAINLY A PROBLEM WHEN SHE WAS A PUP.
EVERYBODY  --- INCLUDING GEORGE--- WOULD APPROACH HER-- LOOKING  HER IN THE EYE WHICH IS AN AGRESSIVE APPROACH TO A DOG--- AND SHE USED TO GROWL-- TOOK A WHILE TO "ACHIEVE BOREDOM" ON THAT ONE.
 
****************
AS FOR  THE 5 YEAR PLAN--  i have a little construction CONVERSATION  to tackle first  
 
I REALLY NEED TO TALK TO JEFF MASTERSON ( who gets this ... i think) 
we should  "remodel" the deagle house- so we can make use of that hill and 4 acres
it will involve a few trees... big ones... oak and pine  ... the kind i had a portable sawmill  slice into the lumber for the t-tent-
seems a shame to split and burn the nice straight oak--
 
I DID LEARN THAT PUMPING CEMENT UPHILL IS ONLY AN EXTRA $682 FOR 4 HOURS.
 
****************
I CAN NOT REPORT ANY SUCCESS WITH BOBBY AND LUNA
YET..      CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR???... YET....
*************
Just wanted to let you know I have Crimson for the night.  I wrote it on the board in the barn.  She does very well we went for a walk in the cemetery she heals very well loose leash,  I unhooked her leash and she was healing perfectly i think not knowing she was off leash.  We ventured out onto some main streets and she had very little reaction to the traffic. We went for a fairly long walk she does not seem to get tired. She does well on her recalls too. So far the perfect dog.

   On asking HR.  On any asking.  I just don't do it.  I just bring the dog and then deal.  It seems to work better that way because the dog behaves.  They can see it behave.  Also, about 90% of the time, the problem I thought might happen doesn't.  Sometimes if you don't anticipate a problem it won't occur.  Just my philosophy.
   You do have to ask if you are going to a church.  They have the right to refuse a service dog.
 
*************
BOY COULD I GET GOING ON THAT ONE************
I AM ALREADY ANNOYED THAT THE CHURCHES ENJOY THE BENEFITS OF TAXES-- LIKE FIRE DEPARTMENTS-- YET PAY NO TAXES...
 
 A BUNCH OF MOONIES BOUGHT A CHURCH IN GLOUCESTER AND DECLARED THEMSELVES A RELIGION.
 
BOY DID THAT SCREW UP GLOUCESTER FOR A WHILE.
