October 28, 2012

SHORT DOGGIE------IT WAS A THREE KLONDIKE NIGHT..
I MUST PAY MORE ATTENTION TO THE SIGN UP LIST FOR OVERNIGHTS..
 
IT REALLY WASN'T TOO BAD  CHAOS IS GETTING EXPERIENCE-- AND SHE ASKS--- FOR WATER--TO GO OUT-- FOR FOOD
 THE ONLY PROBLEM IS WAITING TIL SHE SETTLES DOWN WITH THE PUPS SO SHE DOESN'T LIE ON ONE.
**************
 
MOXIE IS RESTING COMFORTABLY- SHE IS--- SO FAR --A VERY UNCOMPLICATED GUEST...
**************
\
 THE NEWS SAYS WITH THE STORM COMING PEOPLE SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE OLD FOLKS IN THEIR AREA,' 
THAT 'S ME- 
**************
MEANWHILE..
BELLYS ARE UP---- OFF THE FLOOR TODAY.  THE PUPS ARE BEGINNING TO TRAVEL.. THIS CHANGES THE BEDDING REQUIREMENTS... SO WE CAN HAVE A SOFT SLEEP PLAY AREA AND AN AREA WITH GOOD TRACTION AS TEHY DRIFT FROM MOMMY TO PEE-- NEWSPAPERS DO NOT FIT TH E BILL YET.. PUPS  NEED CLOTH TRACTION-- WE HAVE SEVERAL OLD BEDSPREADS WITH SLIGHT RIDGES( AND WASH EASILY..) AND BATH MATS FOR DISTINGUISHING THE BED AREA.
***
MARY LOU HAS ARRIVED IN THE GUEST CABIN AND IS HAVING HER INITIAL BONDING WITH FIONA...-- I TOLD HER SHE COULD BE OUT IN THE WORLD BY NOON TODAY..
***
WE ARE IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE FOR THE STORM.. I HOPE..  IT IS THE LACK OF ELECTRICITY THAT COULD LAST A WEEK.  THE MORE THEY TALK OF " WIND GUSTS"  -- THE MORE I THINK OF ALL THE OLD TREES IN AND AROUND US THE MORE I REMNEMBER IT CAN TAKE WEEKS TO GET ELECTRICITY BACK AGAIN.
 
THE ONE THING I FORGOT IS TO HAVE SEVERAL WEEKS OF MEDICATION ON HAND..JUST THINK OF A COUPLE BIG 24" TREES ACROSS THE DRIVEWAY SO I CAN'T GET CARS OUT...
 
LEAVING ME  "OUT ON MY AS.S"--- MARY
- THE PHARMACY  WOULD BE A LONG HAUL ON HER. 
*****
OTHER THAN THAT WE ARE EXPECTRING A FAIRLY NORMAL STEW DAY
 
WE MAY HAVE SOME LIFT AND CARRY JOBS IN PREP
LIKE SHUTTING THE HAY LOFT DOOR.
 
****
THE OTHER EMAIL I HAVE TO WRITE TODAY IS A SHORT LECTURE ON LOADING A HORSE OR MARY ONTO THE TRAILER
 
 YOU CAN NOT PULL THEM ON  BY TIGHTEING THE LEAD ROPE--   THAT CAUSE THEIR HEAD TO GO UP AND THEN THEY RUN BACKWARDS.
YOU USE THE LEAD TO KEEP THIER HEAD IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION== THEN-- AS IN DRESSAGE -- IMPULSION MUST COME FROM THE REAR-  EXCEPT IN THIS CASE  IMPULSION COMES FROM A BROOM OR SIMILAR OBJECT.
 
 YOU ALL NEEDED TO KNOW THAT... WELL SOME OF YOU DID--- LIKE MADDY
 
I WILL NOW GO BACK TO CHAIR

  1. Carlene: If you could include weights and names...so far.....in the DD tomorrow, that would be appreciated. So much is happening in the "comments" on Explore that its hard to go back and catch up if youre gone for any length of time!

    You are a very special person, doing a very special thing. I admire you and all your helpers!

  3. Good morning, I'm watching the weather reports & sending much love your way. I hope it turns out to be not as bad as is anticipated.
    I love watching Chaos' puppies scoot around, they're getting faster & more mobile by the day.
    I hope Moxie is still doing ok & lots of luck to Mary & Fiona.
