Oct 8, 2011


i think the PRECOCIOUS PUP award HAS TO GO TO OPAL.


TWICE LAST NIGHT SHE Was on the other side of the 3'fence between the 2 litters---first i figured was an accident--- second time i paid more attention.

when i went out to "water off" for the evening there she sat amid the smaller pups..

she came to greet me with the rest, but when i bent down to lift her over the fence she darted to their bed - turned and looked at me -- clearly saying "i do not want to live with those 2 idiot brothers of mine" so i left her there--

besides she is a big hot water bottle for the smaller pups.

i have noted she seems ready to talk things over--- bailey style-


i brought the smaller pups into the kitchen yesterday--- it was chilly-- and they were afraid of the heater-- would not go near the warm air--- til mommy explained it to them-- they learned that quickly.


************

pistol is progressing with the fear of trucks on the highway-- we took her in the durango - so she had to look out the windows ( in the van she can duck down and hide) by driving 40mph on rt 95, lots of trucks pass us for practice.


charlie and crimson are coming along nicely.


-************

construction lesson for the day

for all of you installing chain link fence---


knuckle-knuckle is a type chain link desirable for dogs-- it has the bent wires top and bottom- instead of the pointy wires.


unfortunately the miles of fencing janine loaded into the horse trailer has only one end knuckle--- so we will have to devise some covering for the pointy ends ... ?pvc pipe with a notch??? something-


i made a gate for practice-- and it looks great-- we now need 4 more for the new nut house kennel.

************

speaking of which- that floor is tipped--big time---- i planned it that way so we could hose it down and out.. i never realized... when you walk around in there it is vaguely like some fun house- and you are not sure if you are dizzy.

so be it--- the thing will drain..


i wish my house had a planned tilt...

****************

plan of attack for the day


i hope the 2 boys show this morning so we can get the staging set up to maybe get the roofing started.... winter approach-eth... once closed in we can always work inside-- we have that bullet heater-- and the pot belly should be arriving soon.

set a fan to dry the floor--- home depot said they would donate 30 feet of flooring-- but we can not pick it up til monday-


a straNGE bookkeeping maneuver apparently each department is allowed a sum of money for "markdowns" each week/ month/or something

and this donation is considered a "markdown"

whatever... Monday we will have flooring..


so we should get the tyvek all covered with painted t-111 by then


i did get some up-- with 2 nails- with hopes greg will be here Sunday to pound in more nails.

****************

i am hoping the person from the VA with the taLL HUSBAnd shows up tomorrow

she said something about a vet with 5 kids who falls.. and there is charlie--- who loves everybody-- i am wondering if he might be a possible--- i need more information.

*****************

HEYDAWG IS HERE FOR 3 DAYS WHILE THEY WENT TO MAINE

HE IS A COMICAL DOG--

*******************

AND CHAOS HAS TAKEN TO BARKING/WHINING SHORTLY AFTER 7AM LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW TO SEE IF PAUL IS HERE YET..

*************

The newly donated vaN IS REGISTERED--- AND I TOOK THE AMBULANCE OFF THE ROAD..


BOY DO WE LOOK GOOD- VEHICLE WISE.

*************

BAD NEWS OF THE DAY-- I AM ON ONE LEG- THUS SLOWING UP PROGRESS ON CONSTRUCTION BIG TIME- SOMEHOW HAVING ONE KNEE GO SOUTH WHILE I AM ON A LADDER WOULD NOT BE A GOOD THING.


HOWEVER FOR TRAINING DOGS FOR MOBILITY PEOPLE... .. I LOOK PERFECTLY NORMAL- I MAY EVEN ADD A CRUTCH. GOOD PRACTICE
