October 20, 2012

 WHERE TO START???
OVERNIGHT?....  THOSE  3 KIDS DID A FANTASTIC JOB  INCLUDING  PUTTING HAND WRITTEN SIGNS WITH ANSWERS IN FRONT OF THE LENS AND SEEING THE RESPONSE ON EXPLORE.ORG.
SOME OF THE QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS ARE SAVED IN A BOX INTHE OVERFLOW ROOM.. THERE IS ANOTHER BOOK IN THE MAKEING...
 
99.9% WERE PLEASENT, HELPFUL OBSERVATIONS  --- BUT I MUST SHARE 2 OF THE  MORE  "UNUSUAL" COMMENTS  ..
"THE 2 STILLBORNS WERE CAUSED BY YOUR USING CELL PHONES IN THE ROOM." 
AND A PERSON CALLED THE IPSWICH POLICE SAYING THAT CHAOS WAS BEING TORCHERED ANDS WAS DYING-- CAUSING THE ANIMAL CONTROL  SUBSTITUTE PERSON TO CALL.
 
WELL MOTHERHOOD IN GENERAL IS A SOMEWHAT RISKY AFFAIR...  HOWEVER... WE WERE WELL WITHIN THE  WELL DEFINED LIMITS OF SUPERCARE.
 
I KNEW GETTING INTO THIS ----THAT IT WOULD BGE A VERY LIVELY CHALLANGE--
 
AND IT IS.
***************
WE  ARE CAUGHT IN THAT  "FOR WANT OF A NAIL THE SHOE WAS LOST. THEN THE HORSE , RIDER, BATTLE  AND KINGDOM - ALL FOR WANT OF A NAIL.." KIND OF DEAL..
******
I SPILLED A TEASPOON OF COFFEE GRINDS ON THE COUNTER AND THOUGHT IF I DON'T PICK IT UP MYSELF,  BECAUSE OF THE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE NOW INVOLVED... IT COULD BE MONTHS BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE DOES...
*********
SOMEHOW I NEED TO GET THAT CONCEPT ACROSS TO TH EWORLD.  ESPECIALLY WITH TOMORROW'S STEW  ABOUT WHICH SEVERAL PEOPLE ARE TALKING.
*********
CHIP IS COMING UP TODAY--- HE IS A HOLDOVER FROM THE ORIGIONAL PUPPY HILL CAMERA GANG-- AND HE IS WILLING TO BGE HELPFUL--- SO HE IS WELCOME.
 
HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE ARE OFFERING  TO VOLUNTEER TO COMEHERE AND PAT PUPPIES-- BUT THEY HAVE NO REGARD FOR THE POO PICKING INVOLVED-- WE DO NOT NEED THOSE SPECTATORS-- UNLESS THEY COME BEARING HUGE CHECKBOOKS.
 
TECHNICALLY... IF WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH POOPICKER TYPESEVEN  THE HUGE CHECKBOOK WOULD NOT SAVE US...  SO WE HAVE TO KEEP PERSPECTIVE.  HIRED PICKER OR   VOLUNTEER-- WE NEED HELP...
 
I SAID ( I THINK I SAID ONLINE)  PEOPLE COMING HERE FOR STEW  SHOULD ARRIVE WITH WORK GLOVES AND A BROOM OR RAKE-- SO TOMORROW IF YOU SHOULD SEE SUCH A PERSON ARRIVE... WELCOME THEM WITH OPEN HANDS.   ALSO WE SEEM TO BE OUT OF BROOMS..
( LOVE THAT COMMERCIAL  "HAPPY AS A WITCH IN A BROOM FACTORY")
 
SO BACK TO TRYING TO  GET HOLD OF WHERE WE ARE....
LAST NIGHT THE  INTERNET WENT DOWN AND  THE COMMENTS WERE "SHE MUST HAVE SHUT IT DOWN OVERNIGHT-"  SO I SHUT THE WHOLE THING OFF-
 
WITHIN 10 MINITES I HAD  TIM ( SOMEWHERE BETWEEN THE NORTH POLE AND VANCOUVER)--- AND JONATHAN-- MAYBE SANFRANCISCO ON THE PHONE   THERE WERE 10,000'S OF PEOPLE WATCHING THIS AND IF I AM GOING TO SHUT IT DOWN I SHOULD LET THEM KNOW SO THEY CAN DEAL... WHOOPS.....  I KNEW THERE WERE  ALOT  OF PEOPLE--   BUT  I HAD TO RE-DEFINE ALOT...
 
SO  WE-- AT ABOUT MIDNIGHT-- REBOOTED THE OPERATION-- AND GOT IT RUNNING AGAIN.
 
SO BACK TO MY SPILLED  TEASPOON OF COFFEE-  I AM VERY HAPPY TO HAVE PEOPLE  FOLLOW THIS LETTER ALONG WITH THE OTHER BUNCH-- WE CAN DO THAT --- EVEN WITH MOXIE MOVING IN SOON--
 
BUT TO KEEP IT ALL UP TO VIDEO STANDARDS WE ARE GOING TO NEED SOME HELP-- AND EXPLORE DID AT ONE POINT SAY THEY WOULD PAY FOR ANY EXPENSES.   I NEED TO HAVE A DISCUSSION WITH SOMEONE ABOUT  NEEDING HELP SO WE DON'T STRESS OUR EXISTING VOLUNTEER SETUP.
 
 THEY SEEM TO BE THRILLED WITH THE "RESULTS"  APPARENTLY THE NUMBERS ARE HUGE -  WE HAVE RECIEVED ABOUT $1000 DONATIONS. YESTERDAY BETWEEN PAYPAL AND  CHICKEN SH#T. 
 
FOR $1000 PER DAY - WE CAN DEAL WITH  ABOUT ANYTHING- AND IN THE PROCESS PRODUCE 3 OR 4 TIMES THE NUMBER OF SERVICE DOGS. 
ONCE WE SEE WHAT THE  ON GOING FINANCIAL COMMITTMENT   WILL BE-- WE CAN MAKE BETTER PLANS.
 
AT THE MOMENT WE ARE AT THE BRING A BROOM STATE...
 
STAY TUNED..
***********MEANWHILE
MEGAN WENT WITH TEAL AND 57 TO SCHOOL-- SAISD THE PEOPLE IN SCHOOL ARE RELALY HAPPY WITH TEAL AND 57--  THERE WAS ONE GLITCH I DID NOT UNDERSTAND--- APPARENTLY 57'S AID FORGOT TO TAKE HER TO LUNCH AGAIN--  WHICH SHE DID WHEN 57 WAS IN A WHEELCHAIR..   BETTER TEACH TEAL TO BARK ON COMMAND SO  THAT AID WOULDN'T  LET 57 STARVE...
*************
 
MAJOR DISASTER-- WITH HER BROKEN HIP--- IS IN REHAB IN SALEM NH. ..-- AND THEY KNOW ME-- SO GREG AND GWEN OFFERED TO TAKE PUMPKIN UP FOR A VISIT....
************
GEORGE DECLARED CHOAS EMPTY OF PUPS-- AND SHE    PASSED 3 AFTERBIRTHS ( WE THINK)-- SHE LOOKS COMFORTABLE.
**********
ALL THE REST OF THE DOGS NEED SOME PERSONAL TIME-- SO REGULAR VOLUNTEERS COME ALONG AND HELP
 
************
 
WE GOT A DELIVERY OF OIL--- TOPPING OFF TANKS IN PREP FOR WINTER 
$4.39 A GALLON 
I STARTED THESE FURNACES A $1.15 A GAL
 
KEEP BUYING THOSE CHICKEN SH#T NUMBERS
 
RUSHING---

  1. Having bred Maine Coon cats for years, I empathize with you regarding the comments.

    Until someone experiences the emotional roller coaster ride of animal husbandry they cannot understand the financial cost nor the amount of love for the animal that is needed to do what you do.

    Keep up the good work.

  2. Its unfortunate that silly people (that cause a ruckus) can justify their actions. I think you have all done a wonderful job, not that my opinion counts for much! Keep up the wonderful work and enjoy the blessings you have! You are a special group of humans! <3

  3. I respect what you are doing and I hope you continue to allow us to view it all. The comments are crazy and you have so much to do without the added pressure of the viewing public. I'm thrilled to see that your donations have gone up, let's hope that continues. Again, thank you for letting me into your home to watch the puppies.

  4. You guys do an awesome job. The teenagers were wonderful. Please tell them that SOME of us appreciate their hard work.

  5. Agreed, the kids were great last night. I can't believe the insanity of some of the commenters.

    You might like to know where people were watching, in addition to the entire U.S. and Canada. During the whole procedure, I saw comments from: Greece, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Saipan, Serbia, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden, the U.K., and Argentina. How impressive is that!!!

    I am desperately sad that I can't visit and help out. My location allows it; my physical condition does not. The only thing I can offer (besides a small amount of money) is - if you actually are going to be writing a book, I could do some proofreading and copy editing for you. I'm not a professional, but I have worked on three books that were published, and I can pretty much always make things better. If you ever want to get in touch, Chip knows how to find me.

    You're amazing, what you're doing is amazing, and I doubt you're the type who will let the idiots get her down. Keep up the good work.

  7. P.S. again, sorry - I meant to add that I'm in a pretty bad situation at the moment and I could SO use an interesting project, so if you have ANYTHING you want proofread... :-)

  8. I have to apologise for my rant last night I was just so upset with the comments on explore.org criticising the youngsters, people saying they know better.
    I feel shocked that you where accused of torturing Chaos because she was in labour for so long, well clearly the fool who made that call doesn't know anything about doggie labour and YOU do. I hope the person who made that accusation whops a big cheque to say sorry on your desk sometime soon.
    Equally shocked that someone would say that you had two still borns because you where on mobile phones. For shame, again! they know nothing about nature, she knows best and they are still born for a reason un beknown to us. Your valiants attempts to resuscitate one of them where heart rendering, even though I didn't see it, I read about it.
    I never went back to the comments, depression sucks sometimes because you get worked up over the slightest thing, like calling your Service Dog Project a puppy farm I was livid by that comment.
    Any way to the teens/youngsters all the volunteers well done, congratulations and give Chaos a hug for me. I can't join in the broom brigade or even volunteer to help with the puppy poops because I live in the UK but we prayed for Chaos, my Mum laughs when I say "dear God help Chaos and her small ones and all the volunteers" but I know God understands my requests.
    bye for now keep up the great work going to drool over Chaos and pups now. Bedtime watching for me!

  9. I know there is a list of names under consideration, but you really must name the spotty dot boy Harley, a take on him being a Harlequin, and he just keeps motoring along!
