made it so far....
after searching all the puppy paws for torn toenails and minor injury--- earlene found out chaos just came in heat.. CHAOS gets this one off---
but we hope to "catch" moxie and merlow to give us pups for the tower of hope gala.. they should be due in soon..
bristol and jade located 3 dunkn donuts between here and plymouth.... so apparently they are fine.
going to be a rough week--- bud is in CA and earlene has the week off so paul and she are off roaming ----
however magan is back and kyle is on the schedule for driving tom today
and anne promised to be back in "efficient mode" after christmas--- with a grant idea and figuring how to get 2 pups here from denmark.
the pups here need a crash course in "how to be a well behaved dane" before those other trainers come here on Wednesday and think we are nuts.
yesterday's lesson was " you mean all that trash is yours????--and we can't have ANY??" PLUS sitting on pauls head on the couch 5 PUPS AT A TIME is 4 pups too many... back to the spoon feed lessons and "WAIT"
danm black dogs-- earlene was the on ly one who knows their names--
best i can do is 4 blacks 2 hARLES AND A MERLE.
EVEN SO--- WHEN WE WENT TO SERVE SUPPER
I THOUGHT THAT WAS 6 PUPS-- a bad sign
GONNA BE A ROUGH WEEK--
BUT I DID A HARD SUDUKO PUZZLE AT 3AM WHEN BOTH TOM AND CHAOS WERE UP WANDERING. THANK HEAVENS I AM OFF THOSE "DO NOT OPERATE MACHINERY " PILLS.
THE BEEF-- THE POO REPORTS HAVE NOT BEEN DEVISTATING--- THE FIRST "GO ROUND" I BOILED THE FROZEN LUMP---- WHICH MELTED ALOT OF THE FAT--- BUT I THEN USED THAT FLUID TO MOISTEN THE DRY FOOD... SO THOSE STOOLS WERE A BIT SLIPERY--- PLAN OF THE DAY NOW... BOIL-- EITHER LET THE FAT HARDEN AND SKIM OFF--- OR JUST FEED THE LUMPS OF MEAT.
WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT THE OPTIMUM APPROACH ...GEORGE???
THAT IRON POT WEIGH'S ALOT--- AND IT IS TH E ONLY THING WE HAVE BIG ENOUGH
ALSO THAT restaurant MANAGER SAID HIS CREW LOVED THE FACT THAT WE CAME THERE EVERY WEDNESDAY WITH THE DOGS...--
I WASN'T AWARE WE DID-- BUT IT IS NOT A BAD IDEA... FOR 80 POUNDS OF DOG FOOD WE CAN SPEND $30 ON LUNCH FOR 5 OF US.
JUST ONE OF THOSE WIN WIN SITUATIONS..
AND THE ONION RINGS ARE GOOD TOO.
ALONG WITH THE BEEF--- WE GET A RECTANGUAR CONTAINER--
HERE WE GO--- ALONG WITH MY HUNDREDS OF COSTCO ROUND BUCKETS I CAN NOW COLLECT RECTANGULAR ONES..
.... ALONG WITH LITTLE GLASS JARS AND ALOT OF OTHER THINGS
I THINK THERE IS A NAME FOR THIS AFFLICTION...
AT LEAST THAT COLLECTION DOESN'T EAT OR RUN UP VET BILLS
NO POLLY AND BOB TODAY--- I FORGET WHO ELSE SAID THEY WOULD SHOW--- HELP IS NEEDED..
I MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET THE BIG DOG BED DONE IN THE NUT HOUSE TODAY
WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO USE THE FENCING TO KEEP THEM FROM PULLING DOWN ALL THE CEILING INSULATION.
I HAVE 60 YEARS OF WATCHING HORSES TURN FENCING INTO KINDLING ---, STALLS INTO FIREWOOD--- AND PASTURES INTO MUD. I WAS HOPING TO FARE BETTER WITH THIS DOG PROJECT.
