Sept 09, 2011


 WITH ANIMALS-- ONE THING YOU HAVE TO BE AWARE OF IS THE VARIOUS  OUTPUT--- FECES BEING ONE OF THEM--- WHICH IS WHY THIS DAILY DOGGIE HAS SO MANY REFERENCES TO THE  SIZE SHAPE QUANTITY AND COLOR   AS I MAKE OUR MORNING COLLECTION..
 
MY FATHER WAS SO PROUD TO PUT US THRU COLLEGE--- HE MUST BE TURNING OVER IN HIS GRAVE
TO THINK HOW MUCH OF MY LIFE IS CONCERNED WITH FECES--FROM HORSE MANURE TO PUPPY POO 
TODAY IS NO EXCEPTION
 
KAREN AND I  TOOK HAZEL TO GEORGE'S--  JUST A BIT TOO SKINNEY-- AND WE HAD WORMED HER-- SHE DOES HAVE TERRIBLY LOOSE STOOL---- HEART NOISES FINE-- NO OBVIOUS REASON--- SO OFF TH=O THE MICROSCOPE AND SHE STILL HAS ROUNDWORMS--- AND HE DID FIND COCCIDIA--- A DIFFERENT PROBLEM-- DIFFERENT PILL--
SO SHE IS NOW ON ABOUT 4 DIFFERENT MEDS---
COCCIDIA IS FEARED BY DANE OWNERS ONLY BECAUSE THE PILLS ARE DISPENSED BY THE MG/KG  AND AT 150 POUNDS THEY CAN BE EXPENSIVE -- BIG TIME
BETWEEN FLEAS, ROUNDWORMS, GIARDIA, COCCIDIA, AND TICKS  AND MANY MORE NATURALLY OCCURING BEASTS--- IT IS NO WONDER THE DOGS THAT LEAVE THE FARM AND LIVE A NORMAL CITY TYPE LIFE LOOK BETTER.
 
I AM WONDERING IF THIS IS THE REASON SOME DOGS DO WELL ON A PINCH OF TYLAN FOR MONTHS
 
WE HAVE A BIG PROBLEM WITH HAZEL- AND WILL  DO WHAT GEORGE SUGGESTS---
BUT AS FAR AS EXPIRIMENTING WITH THE REST... WE HAVE THAT LARGE BOTTLE OF  THAT FOUL TASTING TYLAN.--
 
BEING GADGET ORIENTED--- I HAVE TO COMMENT ON GEORGE'S POO RETRIEVAL SYSTEM-- IT BEATS KAREN  RUNNING AROUND BEHIND WIHT A COFFEE CUP.
IT IS A STRAW WITH A SLIGHT BULDGE  AND SLITS AT THE END-- INSERTED TIL IT HITS SOMETHING- SLIGHT TWIST TO COLLECT AND BINGO  HE HAD A SAMPLE.
 
AND YOU ALL MAKE FUN OF SOME OF THE THINGS I INVENT... !!
 
WE NEED ONE OF THOSE TIME SAVERS-- I AM SURE THERE IS A CHEAP VERSON MADE IN CHINA.
 
*************
I JUST TALKED TO GWEN ( DAUGHTER #1)  SHE HAD TO TAKE HER HUSBAND TOI THE AIRPORT ( IPSWICH TO LOGAN) AND DOWN AND BACK TOOK 5 HOURS
 
YESTERDAY JANINE CALLED (DAUGHTER #2)  SHE WAS ON 128  AT  6AM ON HER WAY TO WORK-- AND SHE HAD SPENT 2 HOURS GETTING FROM DANVERS TO LYNNFIELD (?10 MILES?)
 
AND YOU DON'T THINK A MONORAIL ON RT 95 FROM MAINE TO FLORIDA WOULD SAVE OIL/GAS?
 
I AM TOLD THERE IS A BIKE RENTAL SYSTEM IN BOSTON NOW WHICH IS VERY SUCCESSFUL-- APPARENTLY DONE IN EUROPE--- SLIDE A CREDIT CARD AND TAKE A BIKE TO BE TURNED IN SOMEWHERE ELSE...
 
WE NEED THIS KIND OF THING
ALL THESe PEOPLE SITTING ON STATIONARY BIKES PEDDLING Away-- all in a row... there is an insaanity about that.
****************
 
back to the dogs
 
cardboard !!  i am no longer fussy about size shape and will take anything we get.
**************
plastic chewing
 
the pups can reach the plastic liners of the recycling--- i could not figure out were they were getting --- and maybe swallowing? short plastic bits --- til they tipped over the entire bin..   so we and not wrap the liner around the top-
 
worse problem-- pi got down the box of gloves-- and as she and opal chewed up the box, many of the gloves were probably knawed upon-- i could not throw all those out--- so i suggest you blow into them to see if they have holes in them before using ----

JASPER REPORT
 
Hi Carlene!  Jasper's first day at Club Canine...what a good dog!  He enjoyed all the attention during his bath; met the other dog customers in a gentlemanly way; explored the outside grounds but was confused upon hearing the trucks and promptly "hid" in the branches of the big crabapple tree (like we couldn't see him!!).  A little reassurance was all he needed. 
Home is becoming more familiar and it's fun seeing him learn new things.  He's a bit pushy, but I'm thinking it's the joy of discovery.  Strong bond with me, but it's slower with Chris.  And Finnigan and Jasper actually had some play time this morning...yea!  Appetite and poops all fine.
All for now ~ Stacey

AND JODI

  A physical trainer, Travis was at our house the other day to help me because I am having pain.  My walking has changed again and I am dragging my foot a different way.  He was working on the muscles in my leg.  I started to have tremors because he was pushing on a muscle.  Stormy was instantly up and by my side.  She wouldn't leave the side of the bed until I stopped shaking.
   Even Travis was amazed.  Each time he worked on a muscle and it would cause my leg to tremble Stormy would get up and lean on the side of the bed by me until it stopped.
   The dogs smell, feel and hear more than humans ever do.  They are special.
   As always, thank you for the gift of Stormy.  She is an amazing dog.  Pat Bobby and Luna on the head and tell them their baby girl is a great, Great Dane service dog.  You can be proud of her.
