chaos pups win the prize for noise makers
now that i am up--- they are only snoring  --
 but they spent the night on bark and growl practice---- with the occasional wail of "that hurts"  which gets me right out of bed to find one has another's ear-- or private part--- as often happens with this age group.
 
gurgle report- colleen fed last night and reported he snorted a sizable quantity of white--- presumably milk-- which must have been from nursing-- because i had fed him 2 tablespoons of puppy food  ( brown) 
since the snort was white... logic... etc...
so in an effort to give him enough to grow on...  i fed just him at 9...  2:30...  and then 5:30   just a bit-- ground up with goats milk--- lap out of bowl---   and it seems to have stayed down
careful inspection of the "linens" in the pen indicate that any brown marks were made by food already run thru the processing puppy gut  units 
 
i wish i had enough nerve to take him off mom's milk-- but since he does not know about water drinking, i am afraid the fluid management is beyond me.

 chicken bingo
for political and possibly legal reasons i did not put on the memsaic wall the fact that the bingo prize was $500.
i think it is better odds than the mass lottery--- can someone verify that??  one chance in 420 of winning is far better i think  ----- somebody check the back of one of those keno cards for the odds...
 
and i really want to run one a month... hopefully our bunch of daily doggers-- and their friends-- will buy a brick on our wall instead of a couple scratch tickets.
 
i will call the kayem hot dog people-- they have been very nice to give us hot dogs in the past-- so on the day of the sh#tting we can give the SUNDAY stewers a hot dog and ear of corn for their purchase of a "brick" on our wall.... as we sit around watching the hens "work"  at picking the winner.
  gwen--- do you have an email address for your kayem neighbors??
it would be fun and a huge help---
 
we are over $300 already   so click away
 
OUR GOAL IS TO  GET A LIVE WEB CAMERA GOING BY THE FIRST SUNDAY IN SEPTEMBER ---IF NOT, WE CAN SOMEHOW PUT THE RESULTING NUMBER/WINNER  SOMWHERE ON THE WEB SO YOU CAN CHECK THE RESULTS STARTING 3:01 PM...

DOG NEWS
 
megan is leaving today to deliver barney to HATTIE  in atlanta--
another loop--- megan's mother  works for ?delta?-- atlanta IS THIER HUB-- AND MEGAN'S MOM WILL BE ON A FLIGHT TODAY AND CAN SHUFFLE MEGAN AND BARNEY AROUND IF POSSIBLE  TO FIND AN EXTRA INCH OR TWO
MEGAN WILL STAY OVER WITH KEITH AND HATTIE (AND HUDSON) ---COMING BACK STANDBY TOMORROW.
 
KEITH  MUST BE SUPER CAREFUL TO GIVE HUDSON EXTRA ATTENTION WITH A NEW DOG IN THE HOUSE.  HUDSON IS SOOOOO ATTACHED-- YOU DO NOT WANT TO UPSET THAT WITH ANY JEALOSY  AND THE FIRST 5 MINUTES OF RE-ASSURING HUDSON WILL BE CRITICAL.
 
MAYBE MEGAN CAN GIVE YOU A HAND WITH THE SLIPERY FLOOR WHILE SHE IS THER/.
**********************
SERVICE DOG TRAINING....
IN PREP FOR THE BUS RIDE TO/AROUND THE AIRPORTS I LEFT MEGAN AND KAREN WITH BARNEY AND TESS AT NORTH SHORE SHOPPING CENER - WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS " GET ON THE NEXT BUS AND CALL ME FROM WHEREVER YOU LAND  AND I WILL COME PICK YOU UP"
MEANWHILE I DID GEORGE'S VET HOSPITAL'S COSTCO SHOPPING.
 
CALL CAME FROM MEGAN-- SHE WAS IN CENTRAL SQUARE-  BUT SHE DID NOT KNOW IF IT WAS CAMBRIDGE OR LYNN'S CENTRAL SQUARE.
IT DIDN'T REALLY MATTER BECAUSE SHE TALKED THE BUS DRIVER INTO CARRYING HER BACK TO THE SHOPPING CENTER FREE OF CHARGE--
THEY WERE AFRAID TO GET OFF IN CENTRAL SQUARE FOR FEAR THE DOGS MIGHT NOT GET BACK ON
 
BUT MEGAN CAN DEAL WITH THAT ON HER OWN TODAY...
******************
 
TODAY-- ( IS WEDNESDAY--- FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE UNSURE ABOUT THAT STUFF--)
WE HAVE TO GET DOGS TO SHAUNESSY FOR A MEET AND GREET- THERAPY SESSION FROM 10 TO 12
 
POLLY- AND  CAMERA MARK'S SISTER  HAVE ORGANIZED THIS-- WITH HOPEFULLY THE SALEM NEWS.
 
 THE HAUL AND DRAGGERS OF THE DAY WILL  BE LORI  ANNE  POLLY..ME-- THEN ADD HILLARY WHO WILL SWAP DRIVING TOM WITH BOB-- SHE WILL BE OUR PUPPY CHASER IF THEY GET LOOSE... WHICH MIGHT BE FUN.
 THERESA WILL BE HERE TO SIT WITH PUPS-- THO THEY MIGHT BE FINE ALONE- WE CAN NOT KEEP UP THE 24 HOUR SURVEILENCE---HAVE TO RISK IT SOMETIME.
 
PISTOL CAN GO--  THEN A CARRIAGE WITH 2 OF THE OLIVE PUPS-- MAYBE PI- AND MAYBE TUCKER----BAILEY WITH SORE FOOT WILL HAVE TO STAY IN THE LOBBY WITH BOB AND TOM.
BUT HER ATTENDENCE WAS SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED... SHE CAN NOT WALK FAR AND BE COMFORTABLE
 
BAILEY MANAGEMENT WILL BE TO CARRY HER IN THE GOLF CART TO THE GRASSY AREAS WHERE SHE CAN EXERCISE WITHOUT HURTING THAT FOOT.
 
THE FOOT HAS NO "PAD"- JUST SOFT PINK SKIN-- NOT TOUGH ENOUGH.
GEORGE IS GUESSING CURES--- AND WE ARE ON IT.
*********************
THE NEW NUT HOUSE BUILDING -- PROGRESS
WE NOW HAVE 3 POSTS SET-  AND CAN START ON SOME EXCITING PARTS--- LIKE PEICES OF THE FLOOR.
 
WE CAN PUT IN THAT 4TH POST LATER..
 
I BET WE CAN PAINT THE T-111 AND RE-USE ALOT OF IT
 
 THE INTERIOR WALLS HAVE TO BE DISMANTLED CAREFULLY AS THAT POLYMAX  ( WASHABLE)SIDING IS PROBABLY STILL  GOOD
***************************
 
idiot problem of the day...
here i have a chance to solve the worlds mosquito problem-- and my poor memory has done me in.
 
fact--
1. this house has a few- but i would  not say "is loaded with" mosquitos.
2. i often eat supper etc out of a cup in my chair- and set the cups on the bookcase to eventually get to the dishwasher.
 
3.  this morning.. lightly floating in a cup of yellow airy foam were 12 nearly dead mosquitos
4.  i can not remember what was in that cup that would foam up with a yeasty smell..  but whatever it was it pulled in most of the mosquitos in the house....  well, 12 is a lot in one cup
 
in this house,   cups of foaming/ fermenting  substances is not totally unusual--- but this looked fairly current...
if i could only remember...
 
there goes another of my inventions---

AND WE HAVE HEARD FROM THE BLUE BUNCH

Hi Carlene,
Sorry i have not been in touch for a while, but as Gwen had mentioned we have had a lot of work to do at the house landscaping and putting up fences etc.. i don't need to tell you there are not enough hours, anywho we have got most of it done and after this Weekend i should be pretty much caught up and would love to start helping out again we will come up for the Stew on Sunday 28th, i have been following the Daily Doggies and the hectic time you have been having with all the puppies, and looking at Camera marks Tabloos they are all awesome looking. I can't believe the size of Pi now she looks so big. I will be free also on some Mondays to help you shuffle Puppies around or whatever is needed let me know.
