Dec 2, 2011


GIGI IS SO MUCH BETTER THAT WHEN I LET HER OUT--- I HAD TO GO FIND HER--- SHE WAS QUITE HAPPY TO GET BACK IN THE WARM HOUSE--- BUT SHE HAD WANDERED ALL THE WAY TO THE BARN--

SHE GOT VERY ACCUSTOMED TO EVERYONE SITTING AROUND PATTING HER--- SHE IS A LITTLE DOWN NOW--- SO PATTING IS GOOD.

AND WE HAVE TO WORK HER IN TO THE HOUSE CROWD


I HEARD RUMORS THAT THE BLUE FAMILY MIGHT LIKE TO HAVE HER KEEP STERLING COMPANY FOR A BIT...

THIS WOULD BE A GOOD THING.


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

SHORT DOG TODAY--

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

I AM TRYING TO GET THE CHAIN LINK PANELS DONE--- 3 PER DAY-- AND IT IS A REAL "FEMALE DOG"

OBJECT IS TO STRETCH THE CHAIN BETWEEN THE FRAMES--

IT HAD MEGAN AND KAREN-- NEARLY CURSING--- AS THEY TRIED TO HELP STRETCH IT.

**********

SO WE QUIT AND WENT TO LUNCH-- WITH CHARLIE, PI, AND CRIMSON.

***

CRIMSON HAS A MOST PEQUILIAR ACT.

ONCE IN THE VAN SHE IS DETERMINED TO CLIMB UP AND OVER THE BACK OF THE SEATS WHICH ALREADY CONTAIN A PERSON

I HAVE SEEN JACK RUSSELS DO THAT --- BUT WITH A DANE--- THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY FEET ---

ESPECIALLY WHEN PI DECIDES "OH THAT LOOKS LIKE FUN" AND JOINS HER-

FUNNY FOR ME TO WATCH-- MIGHT NOT BE SO AMUSING IF THEY TOOK OFF RUNNING OVER THE TOPS OF THE SEATS IN AN AIRLINE,


WE HAVE A BIT OF TRAINING TO DO WITH THE LITTLE DEARS.


LITTLE--- PROBABLY OVER 120 POUNDS--- AND GROWING.


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

PUPPY RUNNING AT THE FAIRGROUNDS HAS THE ADDED COMPLICATION OF THE HUGE PUDDLE MADE BY THE OVERFLOWING IPSWICH RIVER


MAYBE 6" DEEP--- 5 ACRES

OUR BUNCH FOUND IT YESTERDAY AND BOUNDED THRU SPLASHING WITH GREAT DELIGHT..

FINALLY RETURNING TO THE WARM VAN


ONE OF THOSE-- LET NATURE TRAIN THEM --- DEALS

WARM IS GOOD--- THEREFORE GETTING IN THE VAN IS GOOD.

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

I THINK WINTER HAS ARRIVED--- OR AT LEAST IS SNEAKING IN


TO THAT END --- WE HAD A LOAD OF "LYNNPACK" DELIVERED TO FILL THE HOLES IN THE DRIVEWAY-- IT IS THE LEFTOVER FROM BREAKING UP ROCKS IN A GRAVEL PIT -- I THINK.


SO MY BELOVED POTHOLES ( AKA SPEED BUMPPS) ARE TO BE FILLED.


LET ME WARN YOU--- THAT IS NOT AN INVITATION TO GO ANY FASTER

BECAUSE IF YOU THOUGHT THE BUMPS WERE NASTY--- YOU HAVE NOT SEEM ME GET MAD AT SOMEONE DRIVING TOO FAST IN THE YARD.


ONCE INSIDE THAT GATE IT IS 1/2 MILE PER HOUR--- OR PARK OUTSIDE THE GATE-- WE CAN NOT DEAL WITH LOOSE PUPPIES AND DRIVERS WHO ARE MOVING FASTER THAN A SLOW ROLL.


AND EVEN THAT MAKES ME NERVOUS

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

THE CHICKEN SH#TTING IS COMING ALONG-- THERE ARE SEVERAL WHO DONATE MORE THAN THE $10-- AND WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT--- BUT $10 PER DAILY DOGGER WORKS TOO.


AS OF TODAY WE HAVE ONE PALLET OF FOOD PAID FOR.

PROBLEM IS IT TAKES MORE THAN ONE PALLET


?HOW MUCH MORE??

LAST I TESTED I THINK IT WAS 70 SCOOPS OF FOOD PER BAG-


WE HAVE ABOUT 30 DOGS--- GENERICALLY EATING 4 SCOOPS PER DAY


120 SCOOPS ALMOST 2 BAGS-- A PALLET IS 28 BAGS..

FIND A FRIEND---

IDEALLY SELLING 200 NUMBERS WOULD PAY THE COST (PRIZE AND MEMSAIC,CREDIT MCARD CHARGES ) AND PAY TH EFOOD BILL


THAT WOULD BE 1 CHANCE IN 200 AT WINNING.


GO FOR IT.
TELL FRIENDS.
