October 12, 2012

OBVIOUSLY ---  WE MADE IT BACK...
 
 I WORRIED ALL THE WAY-- I AM NOT AN IDEAL PASSENGER IN A CAR
 
MEGAN HILLARY AND GWEN  MANAGED THE PUPS +  WALTER AND FIONA IN THE VAN #1- AND DESERVE GREAT PRAISE...
JADE.BUD2 AND GREG +SAMMY BAILEY AND INDY ( AND MYSELF) WERE IN THE SECOND VAN  ( RENTED ENTERPRISE YET TO GE RETURNED IMMEDIATELY..) 
=
THE USE OF CELLL PHONES GAVE US A CONSTANT VOMIT REPORT -- AND THERE WAS NONE...-- THO THE VARIOUS ODORS OF ALL THOSE DOGS IN A CONFINED PLACE WAS INTERESTING TO SAY TH E LEAST.
 
WE WERE ABOUT 2 HOURS AHEAD OF OURSELVES  BUT SET UP ION A CORNER WHERE ALL THE GUESTS HAD TO PASS BY  AND ALL WERE MOST INTERESTED IN TALKING ABOUT THE DANES...
MANY-- LIKE NEARLY ALL?  VETERANS THERE WITH LABS COMMENTED THAT THEY SAW THE VIRTUE OF THE BIGGER DOGS.. THE LABS WERE NOT ALOT BIGGER THAN THE 3 MONTH OLD DANES- AND OF COURSE 10 MONTH OLD  WALTER KNOCKED THE SOX OFF EVERYONE...
 
ONCE--WALTER  DID JUMP ( VERY QUICKLY STEP OVER) OUR 15"  BARRIER AND RAN INTO T HE COCKTAIL CROWD TO EVERYONE'S DELIGHT AS HILARY FLEW OFTER HIM AND GOT HIM BY THE TAIL.. BAILEY JOINED HIM TO KEEP TRACK  BUT QUIT AND TURNED WHEN I SPOKE TO HER.
OTHERWISE THE PUPS UNDERSTOOD THE FENCE AND STAYED  AND PLAYED INSIDE..  WE WERE RIGHT NESXT TO A DOOR OUT TO A PATIO AND GRASS-- SO IT WENT SMOOTHLY.  NO DISASTERS TO REPORT
 
SAMMY AND JADE-- AND BUD2 AND INDY REPRESENTED US WELL--- INDY OLDER AND MORE POLISHED-- SAMMY OFFERED TO PLAY WITH ANOTHER SERVICE DOG THERE-- THE OTHER DOG WAS ONLY SLIGHTLY BIGGER THAN SAMMY'S HEAD... BUT SAMMY DID NOT OFFER TO CHEW ON HIM.. THAT WAS A RELIEF...
 
AND WE WERE HOME SHORTLY AFTER 11.
LONG DAY
 
AND LONG DAY FOR BAILEY  WHO WAS SO TIRED AT THE END THAT SHE LEFT ME AND FOLLOWED GWEN WHO WAS LOADING THE VANS
WHEN I WENT OUT I WAS VERY GLAD TO FIND HER SOUND ASLEEP IN TH ECORRECT VAN--- SHE WAS SO TIRED SHE WOULD  HAVE CRAWLED IN ANY OPEN CAR DOOR.
 
THEY HAD A VERY LARGE SILENT AUCTION -- MOSTLY OF DONATED WEEKENDS ... TICKETS TO EVENTS ETC...
 
 
  PAUL EARLENE AND BUD1  MANAGED HERE VRY WELL AND BUD1 GOT THE WIDOW MAKER TREE DOWN ON THE GROUND.  A YEARS WORTH OF FIRE WOOD
GOT TO RUN AND RETURN THE VANS.... MINUS WHITE HAIR.... HOPEFULLY
