ALLAN AND TESS
WHERE HE HAD A SERVICE DOG BEFORE, THE WHOLE PROVCESS IS A LITTLE "OLD HAT" -- WE WENT OUT TO HOME DEPOT AND WANDERED AROUND-- AND THE MARKET ETC-- AND THERE WASN'T ANYTHING SPECTACULAR TO REPORT .
THE PUPS - THE HATS AND PI---JUST HAD A BIG LESSON IN KLEENEX EATING-- AS IN "THIS IS A NO AND DO NOT TOUCH IT" AND I SET IT DOWN IN THEIR PEN WITH THEM-- THEY ARE ALL LYING THERE LOOKING AT IT BUT HAVE NOT GONE NEAR IT
SO IF ANYONE NEEDS A KLEENEX TODAY --- IT IS ON THE FLOOR NEAR THE PUPPY BED.
OLIVES BUNCH ARE LOOKING SOOO MUCH BETTER( AND EXCEPT FOR SAMMY THEY HAVE PERFECT POO'S-)
I WOULD SAY WE ARE NOW ON FIRMER FOOTING... SO TO SPEAK.
THE CHAOS TRIBE ARE ON THE DECK--- FULL DECK-- WE REMOVED THE BARRIER- WHICH MEANT ALL THE BIG DOGS ARE Back in the house. as they went out this morning i counted as they went thru the door---7
training tip of the day
the command as the kitchen barrier is opened is " outside" loudly as you run to open that outside front door too. as we progress--- and they start to "go" in the house a loud " outside" then has meaning.
actually any time you open the door you should be saying either " outside--- or wait" indecision in a dog is a bad thing.
busy day.. mary etd (est time of departure) is 8:52 to arrive at appleton by 9:30 (appleton farms is that huge oldest farm in the US so they say --- on rt 1A just south of ipswich across from ne biolabs) it is family farm day-- and mary is exhibit "A"
this will be short so i can try and dig out some flyers to hand out
theresa if you are reading this-- i don't know if we have any or where... i may ghave to call you before 8:52 if you don't respond..
there will be a crowd - and we should take advantage of it.
now for the life experiences to share
those very sharp knives advertised on tv--ceramic knives-- never needs sharpening.. well--- i bought one... and while th e coffee perked... i read the directions.
the reason it never needs sharpening is all the things you may not do with it--like frozen peas--chicken with bones,,, or even hard cheese.... and don't chop stuff--- this is for slicing soft bread ,tomatoes..and your fingers if you don't keep it in it's special holder.
of course - never put it in the dishwasher.
not the kind of thing condusive to a long life here on the farm
now for my current million dollar idea someone ought to patten ---is salt that has been dyed with vegatable coloring so people can be aware of how much they are using.... or if the salt shaker is working at all;/
that is a better invention than george's poop extractor.
probably has more universal appeal.
