HEY GEORGE-- 
 HERE'S ANOTHER PERSON WHO HAS FOUND THAT THE CANINE TOOTH GROWS   HAIRS...
 
 Carlene,
I was reading today's doggie daily and it is funny that you should mention hair at the canine tooth under the gums. That happens to Teal all the time.It is on the right side. I noticed this while trying to get him use to brushing his teeth!
Mandy, Jocelyn and Teal
 
IMAGINE THAT---AND HE THOUGHT I WAS NUTS
 
COME ON YOU LOT--- HAVE DAILY TOOTH INSPECTION--- WE NEED SOME  MORE STATS.
MAYBE WE COULD GET A GOV'T GRANT TO STUDY THIS  PHENOMENON  HAIRY TEETH
 
I THOUGHT ONLY PEOPLE WITH HANGOVERS HAD HAIRY TEETH.
***********************
MANDY ALSO WROTE A VERY NICE PARAGRAPH FOR AN WRITER WHO IS PREPARING A MAGAZINE ARTICLE ON SERVICE DOGS...
AND IF I CUT AND PASTE.. IT WILL FILL UP THIS DD 
 
0F COURSE IF IT WAS A DISASTER I WOULD NOT COPY AND PASTE
***

Jocelyn is not a typical teen.She has Friedreich's Ataxia which is a progressive disorder that destroys muscle tissue. Walking has been getting very hard for her for the past 3 yrs. She has to wear leg braces at all times and always needed to hold on to someone to keep her balance.
 
She stayed up many nights just wanted to be "like other kids." Most of all she just wanted to be able to go to the mall with only her best friend. Until 12 weeks ago, that wasn't possible because she also has osteoporosis.
I got some information on service dogs for mobility and found Carlene at the Service Dog Project. I filled out the application and wanted to hand deliver it, so my family went to visit.
 
It was amazing to see so many people dedicated to such a cause. Carlene immediately gave Jocelyn and I pointers on having her hold on to a pocket on my pants while walking because that would be the level that she would be holding a harness on a service dog. From then, Jocelyn dreamed of walking by herself.
All the while, her condition was declining and her school was trying to push me into having her in a wheelchair. She was falling more and hurting herself and ended up using a wheelchair quite often. She was losing muscle due to lack of use.
Then, 4 months ago, Carlene announced that Teal was going to be Jocelyn's dog. She was so excited. Carlene and her team made sure that Teal and Jocelyn would make a great match by having us stay there for a few nights in order for Teal and Jocelyn to bond. Carlene, Megan and all the others made sure this was going to work, because Teal would also have to go to school. They even traveled to Jocelyn's school to do a presentation about service dogs to the students and staff to answer questions.
 
 Teal has been with us for 12 weeks now and is so loved at home and school. Jocelyn's first trip to the mall with her best friend lasted 3 hours! In and out of just about every store, all by herself! A new record for her to be on her feet. She is doing more things by herself. It wouldn't have been possible without Teal.  Carlene is always there if we have any questions in regards to Teal since this is a new chapter for us. We love going to visit Carlene and the crew. Teal loves to go to play. It is so amazing to see a team so passionate for such a wonderful cause. Carlene and her team worked very hard with Teal to have him prepared to be with Jocelyn.
 
 Jocelyn is gaining strength in her legs and is becoming an independant young lady thanks to Carlene White and the Service Dog Project. We will be forever thankful.

I HAVE A CONSTANT WORRY---
 I AM GIVING PEOPLE THESE DOGS THAT THEY WILL PROBABLY OUTLIVE... 
 
WHEN YOU GET INVOLVED WITH ANIMALS-- YOU GIVE THEM A HAPPY LIFE AND WHEN IT IS OVER IT IS OVER-- YOU HAVE TO ENJOY  THAT LIFE    AND GO ON TO THE NEXT.
 
I WISH I COULD FIND ANN'S LETTER WHEN THEY LOST HOMER TO INTESTINAL CANCER-- ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATED-- COULD NOT POSSIBLEY GO THRU THAT AGAIN...
THEN A WEEK LATER I HAD A NOTE "LIFE WITHOUT A DANE IS NOT AN OPTION"  AND THEY HAVE GONE ON TO ENJOY KARMA.
 
AND TO HAVE OTHER PEOPLE ENJOY KARMA
THIS IS JIM  TAKING KARMA  TO A 102 YEAR OLD'S BITRTHDAY
SHE USED TO RAISE DANES AND WISHED FOR THIS VISIT.
WE FOUND OUT ABOUT THE MAKE A WISH THRU THE DANE COMMUNITY.

SIR THOMAS WENT HOME WITH RENEE YESTERDAY-- I AWAIT A REPORT -----
************
NOW TO GET TO THE MORE PARCTICAL ASPECTS OF THIS PURPORTED EDUCATIONAL EMAIL
 
HEALTH  ISSUES-
 
BENTLEY'S NOSE -- MEGAN IS FIXATED ON IT--  APPARENTLKY IT IS NOT HEALING AS WELL AS IT SHOULD-- HE HAS  AN ABCESS ON TOP OF HIS NOSTRIL.--- LOOKS GONE NOW-- BUT IT IS NOT- IT HAS A PRODUCTIVE  DRIP/
 
DOESN'T SOUND EARTH SHATTERING- DOES IT...
BUT I USUALLY GO THRU A PROCESS OF " WHAT COULD BE THE COMPLICATIONS OF A PIMPLE ON BENTLEY'S NOSE.. ?
 
I RAN THRU ALL THE PLACES HIS NOSE GOES--- IMMEDIATELY I THOUGHT OF PREGO  CHAOS'S REAR--- A PARTICULARLY FASCINATING AREA FOR HIM.. SINCE  HE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR PUTTING SOME THINGS IN THERE--- WHICH IS ANOTHER LONG STORY---
 
BUT HIS SNIFFING WAS NOT THE  CASUAL "HI-- HOW ARE YOU-- WHAT DID YOU HAVE TO EAT YESTERDAY?" KIND OF SNIFF
 
THIS WAS A MUCH MORE PURPOSFUL  POKE AND LIFT-- WHAT IS GOING ON IN  THERE?      KIND OF SNIFF.
 
 HE HAS A INFECTED NOSE-  AND SHE IS DEFINITLY PREGANANT
 
SO THAT IS MY CONCERN AT THE MOMENT....
********************
AND YOU THOUGHT ALL I HAD TO WORRY ABOUT WAS ACCOUNTING.
***********
OTHER EARTH SHATTERING  NEWS--
 
I DID GET A NEW TITLE FOR THE BMW-- FOR WHICH SDP WILL GET A BEAUTIFUL DONATION..
 
I DIDN'T LIE--  THERE WERE CERTAINLY THINGS ABOUT TITLES I DID NOT KNOW-- AND AT 74 I CAN NOT BE EXPECTED TO READ ALL THAT GOBBLYGOOK-- AND NO ONE ASKED IF THOMAS WAS DECEASED.  THEY WANTED A SIGNATURE ON THAT LINE AND $$25  SO I GAVE THEM THAT.. AND GOT THE TITLE.
 
BLESS THOSE COMPUTERS-- THEY  NEED AN X IN SOME BOX  THEY DO NOT NEED TO KNOW  WHY AN X  IS OR IS NOT IN THAT BOX.
 
AND THAT IS REALLY A VERY PRETTY DOG YOU HAVE
 
I FELT LIKE A   PICKPOCKET-- DISTRACT AND CONQUER
****************
CURRENT SCIENTIFIC EXPERIMENTS
 
BAGGIES OF     FLEAS  vs  DIAXXXXX EARTH
 
9/29  2PM  BAILEY   5 FLEAS , CONSIDERABLE HAIR, AND EARTH
9/29  4PM LUNA   3 FLEAS, ONLY 1/4 TEASP EARTH
9/29   7PM  CHAOS  2 FLEAS   ONLY A BIT OF EARTH
 
AND THESE BAGS ARE NOT TO BE SHAKEN... HANGING ON MY DESK DRAWER
RUMOR IS THESE FLEAS CAN NOT LIVE IN THE FINE DITAXXXXXX SOIL

TO BE CONTINUED

  1. Carlene, I want to tell you that I laughed right out loud reading the entire section on Bentley's nose problem! Makes me wish you really WOULD give some thought to writing a book about your experiences raising and training your dogs, some of the stories about the people who have benefitted, and just your general observations about life. It would be a great read!
