chaos--- is large
that is the biggest excitement of the day.. she spent yesterday just lying around with people rubbing her belly--- she liked that-
i don't know what the reasoniing.. but last night she did not wake me at all--- if i had to guess... she realizes she can no longer get out of anyone's way and yesterday she left her bunk only when earlene was next to her with a whiffle bat..
the complication to her life was charlie--- who is here while steven goes into the hospital. charlie was given a premere accomodation in th e high side of the nutt house...
but as of 11pm he decided steven had left him there in error and if he howled loud enough steve would come back and get him. he is a very strong dog with a lot of stamina---- by 2am i decided i better do something--- so i moved the barrier which kept dogs away from chaos chosen nesting place-- and used it to fence him in to the sofa in the tv room-- because i still had to give chaos access to waking me in my chair...if she needed something.
all of that commotion may be why she did not get up and ask to go out-- or eat-- because she would have to walk past charlie to wake me...
i had to insist that she get up and out at 5am-- which she did-- with difficulty-- she certainly did not spring to her feet.- plus even that 12" high barrier which surrounds her area to keep pups in place ... is just too high for her "hanging cafeteria"..
she got her front feet over and stood while i helped her get her rear end over. so i had to remove that.
it was an active evening--
before anyone has a heart attack about the whiffle bat-IT IS USED TO HIT THE GROUND--- OR FURNATURE--- or golf cart...to MAKE A NOISE IN A VERY THREATENING MANNER- our dogs are taught not to get within 4 feet of someone carrying a whiffle bat. this is a perfect example why it is necessary in our training...-- we have so many dogs loose around here plus 2 huge donkeys------ and to take chaos for a walk-- they would all love to come and have a sniff.. ..but by carrying that plastic bat... they will all go thru th e process " there is that danm bat...let me think it over" EDUCATION IS A WONDERFUL THING.
and mary--(as in facebook's MARY THEDONKEY ) SHE WILL APPROACH THE T TENT- AND SHE KNOWS VERY WELL TO STOP AT THE EDGE-- SHE IS NOT TO PUT HER FEET ON THE STONE FLOOR - WHEN SHE DOES-- I TELL HER TO STOP- AND SHE DOES--- THEN STAMPS AT FLYS AND EDGE HER WAY IN 1/2 INCH AT A TIME... BUT IF I TELL HER TO STOP AND I HAVE THAT BAT IN MY HAND SHE STAMPS FLYS WITHOUT INCHING FORWARD...
HER GOAL IS TO GET WITHIN REACH OF THE TABLE --- GRAB SOMETHING AND SPIN AND RUN WHILE WE YELL AND CHASE HER IN A futile effort to get the bag of donuts from her.
all i have to do is carry that bat and her manners are perfect.
we are to the point with chaos where if anyone on that puppy list has any time to sit around and read or hook rugs -- please come ahead...
we have the beef cutting episode really organized in front of the fireplace here in the house...with music -- it is quite pleasant to cut beef. we need 2 tubs a day... it is a relaxing mindless chore.... and you could keep your eye on chaos..
we must go to costco today-- MUST---- as in ... i am out of dilantin...just one of those meds you really don't want to run out of. ( seizure med it has worked perfectly for 40 years--- better not stop now.)
yesterday ---polly and bob took luna and bailey to get them blessed somewhere..
tomorrow there are a bunch due to get rabies shots
i would like to try and gt the camera running for a chaotic review at 5pm after the pups get fed on puppy hill before the y go inside..
maybe johnathan can put the study of a twitching belly on live camera
i hope with all this exposure the birth goes well-- with animals you just can't be certain...
that is about all i know.
well if i knew anything else... i forgot it
