didi and karen are doing well--- she is choosing to be with karen instead of me--- now as soon as she prefers karen to megan we will have it made
tomorrow my daughter ( who's avocation is cooking) is throwing a cookout--- so karen and i can make the sacrifice of going to her place for party practice with didi --- such a sacrifice
3 neighbor's kids were here hanging ( ADULT TYPE KIDS WHOHAVE VOLUNTEERED BEFORE) AND GOOD OLE PI GAVE THE "WHO ARE YOU GRUMBLE/WOOF" IT WAS NEARLY 6 MINUTES BEFORE SHE CLIMBED IN THEIR LAPS-
THE TYPICAL DANE "GOT TO THINK ABOUT THIS" ATTITUDE... AS OPPOSED TO THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER "WHOEVER YOU ARE JUST PAT ME" THIS CONCEPT THROWS OFF SOME TRAINERS. THE TYPICAL DANE GRUMBLE WHILE BACKING UP IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FROM THE PRE-BITE GROWL OF THE NORMAL DOG....... IN MY OPINION...
********************ON THE TOPIC OF BITING....... THERE IS MARY... IF SHE IS GOING TO START BITING PEOPLE HER LIFE AROUND HERE WOULD TAKE A REAL CHANGE....
SHE BIT LORI YESTERDAY--- NO BLOOD TYPE BITE--- BUT NO FRIENDLY NIBBLE EITHER.
WHEN I WENT OVER THE DETAILS ----MARY WENT TO LORI'S CAR WHEN SHE ARRIVED AND GAVE HER THE FRIENDLY NIBBLE/NUDGE SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE THE BITE...
LORI HAD STOPPED BRINGING MARY A TREAT BECAUSE SHE (LORI) FIGURED MARY HAD TOO MANY LAST SUNDAY .. THE WAY I SEE IT--- MARY WAS NOT WITH THE DIET PROGRAM AND WAS ANNOYED- SHE ASKED FOR A TREAT SEVERAL TIMES--- AND WHEN LORI DID NOT PRODUCE ONE SHE GOT ANNOYED.
SHE BIT JANINE ABOUT 8 YEARS AGO FOR THE SAME REASON- JANINE GAVE PONY RIDES ON MARY AND THEN JUST DROPPED HER WITH NO TREAT--- MARY HAS BEEN SPECIALLY ANNOYING TO JANINE EVER SINCE--- TIPPING OVER JANINE'S WHEELBARROW-
ALL SHE NEEDS IS SOME RECOGNITION--- A PIECE OF BREAD--- OR BAGEL -- OR CARROT
AND I DON'T THINK SHE WOULD BITE--- BUT YOU ALL ARE ON NOTICE SHE HAS BECOME MORE DEMANING.
I DO HAVE A FRYING PAN I COULD SNAP ON HER TO FEED HER--- AND THAT MIGHT NOT BE A BAD IDEA
SHE DOES HAVE THE STRONGEST LIPS OF ANY EQUINE I HAVE EVER SEEN. SO IF SHE MISCALCULATES WHEN REACHING FOR A CARROT SHE COULD GET A FINGER... SHE NEVER HAS--- BUT THE POTENTIAL IS SURE THERE.-- SHE HAS PICKED UP A 100 POUND BAG OF GRAIN AND TOSSED IT LIKE A FEATHER
*******WITH THAT IN MIND DO NOT EVER FEED HER A CARROT AND HOLD THE OTHER END WHILE SHE BITES THRU IT... YOU MUST PRE BREAK THEM - OR GIVE HER THE WHILE CARROT.
BACK TO THE DOGS
I ALMOST WENT "TO BED" INSTEAD OF "TO RECLINER" LAST NIGHT-- BUT AS I WAS TURNING OFF LIGHTS- OLIVE SAT DOWN TO FEED THEM --- AND SAT ON 4 AT ONCE-- I DO NOT KNOW HOW THAT WOULD HAVE WORKED OUT IF I HAD NOT BEEN THERE--- THEY WERE ALL TANGLED IN THE SOFT CAFETERIA DEPARTMENT--- BUT IT SURE LOOKED UNCOMFOTABLE TO ME IN THE BREATHING CATAGORY.
I DID LEAVE A DISH OF FOOD--- DRY FOOD--- FOR HER LAST NIGHT--- SHE - LIKE MARY - HAS AN OPPINION THERE TOO------ "WHERE'S THE CHEESE" IS NOT A QUESTION I WANT TO ANSWER WHEN SHE POKES HER COLD NOSE IN MY FACE AT 2AM. SO HER OVERNIGHT FOOD IS ONLY THE DRY.
we have 30cc of pink swimmers from Bobby inserted in luna --lori helped- education is a wonderful thing.
luna is not young--- she is in good shape except for a bit of arthritis--- making the pre-motherhood activity a bit too much for her- i would not be breeding her except it is really a "last shot" for any bobby pups because of his medical complications. ------swimmers should not be in a pink solution....
i did manage to video the last drop on the microscope -- to verify the swimmers---
megan reported bobby is peeing yellow again... this is progress--- it was green/brown---
hey ----you like the details---- that could be a significant one.
normal day - somewhere with karen/didi-- maybe early lunch??? like the bev hospital in danvers 11:00 if anyone would like to join us and back here to meet with Michael on the 5 year project--- at 1:00
janine said today the weekend rollerblading group will be in boston..
apparently it is a group of about 100-- i would love pictures of that winding thru traffic --- if any of you see the group- they do a city a month- interesting....
gladys sent this one--- and it is a great concept lets all look for one of these in the junk yards/craigs list/etc
we could do this...
