October 4, 2012

TEAL HAD NO VOMIT AND NO DIARRHEA TODAY!!---- SO HAPPY!

AMAZING HOW A SERVICE DOG CAN ERASE THE MUNDANE PROBLEMS AND LET YOU CONCERN YOURSELF WITHTHE REAL;LY CRITICAL PROBLEMS OF THE WORLD
************************
THISD WILL BE SHORT-- I HAVE TO SET DAILY GOALS IF I AM TO GET ANYTHING DONE

STILL THINKING ON TH E BIGGER SLEEPING SHELF FOR THE PUPS..LOOKING FOR  THE RIGHT PIECE OF PLYWOOD-- WHICH IS ALL OVER
************

HESTER CAMB BY YESTERDAY WITH STELLA ( ABADIAH) FOR A VISIT... AND MENTIONED ABBY HAD STOPPED PULLING HER UPSTAIRS WHEN ASKED TO....  COULD BE THAT HER HARNESS WAS NOT  COMFORTALE.. 
.....FIRST CLUE-----  WHEN I WENT TO PUT IT ON ... SHE DUCKED HER HEAD  --- SHE WAS TALKING... EITHER TH E HARNESWS WAS NOT COMFORTABLE  OF SHE HAS SOME STRUCTURE TYPE PROBLEM-- SO TO TACKLE THOSE THINGS ABOUT WHICH WE CAN DO SOMETHING, I FITTEED A NEW HARNESS TO HER WITH A PAD ( FROM THE CHRISTMAS SLEIGH HARNESS)  AROUND THE FRONT.

I AM ASHAMED OF MYSELF THAT I DID NOT DOUBLE CHECK ON  HER GIRTH AREA...
I SO QUICKLY DECIDED PULL HAD TO BE CHEST-- FORGETTING IT COULD BE BEHIND HER FRONT LEGS TOO..

SO WOULD   WHOEVER COMMMUNICATES WITH HESTER'S ? BROTHER?  BOB -- WHO CAME WITH HER PLEASE LOOK OVER ABBADIAH'S GIRTH AREA AND LET ME KNOW
***************

I AM WAY BEHIND ON THE RE-CONCRETING OF THE  DRAINAGE  IN THE KENNEL

I BOUGHT CONCRETE PATCHING STUFF AND FIGURED I WOULD EXPERIMENT WITH A CUP OF THE POWDER-- IN THE CONVENIENFCE OF THE KITCHEN  BEFORE I START ON THE ACTUAL 50 FOOT LONG DITCH

I HAVE HAD CONSIDERABLE EXPERIENCE OF  SETTING POSTS BY JUST DUMPING A BAG OF THE  DRY STUFF IN THE POSTHOLE WITH A BUCKET OF WATER AND COVERING IT ALL UP..  THE POSTS STAND.

BUT THEN THERE ARE THE BIGGER JOBS...
I HAVE HAD SOME NASTY GO ROUNDS WITH CONCRETE TRUCKS ...  I KNEW THOSE BIG TRUCKS WANDER AROUND AND   CHURN THE STUFF UP -  THEY   TIP LIQUID INTO FORMS AND  BY THE NEXT DAY IT IS HARD ENOUGH TO WALK ON ON TIPTOE   ..
COUPLE FACTS MISSING.. 
 THE CONCEPT OF " I THINK I NEED 2 CUBIC YARDS SO I BETTER  ORDER 2 AND 1/2"  EXPLAINS WHY THERE ARE SEVERAL PLACES ON THIS PROPERTY WHERE THERE ARE GLOBS OF WHAT CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS FREEFORM CONCRETE ART.
THEY DO NOT TAKE BACK EXTRA-- AND IF YOU SAID 2 AND 1/2 --- YOU WILL GET 2 AND 1/2 ----REGARDLESS.
AND  IT IS SIGNIFICANTLY HARD IN 24 HOURS-- THAT IS UNLESS MARY SEES A BAGEL ON THE FARSIDE-- IN WHICH CASE IT TAKES 4 YEARS.

DEALING WITH CONCRETE NEVER INVOLVES THE WORD ---WAIT
*******
THE SECOND PROJECT IS TO TRY AND DECIPHER THE CURLING IRON EARLENE GAVE ME-- WITHOUT SETTING FIRE TO MY HEAD.

JIL ( A NEIGHBOR)  CAME AND CUT MY HAIR AFTER SEEING WHAT A MESS IT WAS ON THIS 24 HOUR CAMERA..   SINCE SHE IS----  WHATEVER THEY CALL HAIRDRESSERS NOW.. SHE TOOK ME BY THE HAND TO DEMO THE CURLING IRON...

AND SHE WILL BE WATCHING MY PROGRESS ON THE CAMERA.. SO I HAVE TO TRY

I ALSO BOUGHT KERCHIEF'S TO HIDE THE WHOLE PROJECT.
******
THEN I HAVE  SOME EMAILS TO WRITE--

 THE WORST OF WHICH IS TO A WOMAN IN CALIFORNIA WHO'S ABUSIVE HUSBAND MURDERED HER SERVICE DOG-- I DON'T KNOW WHAT I CAN DO---APPARENTLY SHE IS NEAR COURTNEY FROM EXPLORE...   COURTNEY IS LOOKING FOR SUGGESTIONS FROM ME.

FIRST SUGGESTION IS  -- WHEN A MALE ANIMAL CAN NOT BEHAVE THE FIRST STEP IS TO  NEUTER HIM..  PREFERABLY  FOR THIS GUY ...WITH NO ANESTHESIA AND A RUSTY KNIFE.

AFTER THAT ... ALL I CAN DO IS TO KEEP MY EYES OPEN FOR ONE OF THOSE "OLD FAMILY PET" TYPE DOGS  IN RESCUE..  AND LET HER WORRY ABOUT HOW TO GET IT TO CALIFORNIA--- THEY AHVE PEOPLE FLYING ALL OVER WITH CAMERAS-- IF I JUST LET IT REST MAYBE A SOLUTION WILL BE COME POSSIBLE,


DOGS ARE BARKING-- IT IS EARLY--- THAT IS NOT A GOOD THING


AND SO IT GOES
