November 3, 2012

wow--- i slept    
 
moxie has 8 pups--- all doing well i guess-- jack has managed them overnight---and they all look very peaceful--   here we go again...8 black pups with  descriptions like
 " has 4 white hairs under chin."----  i will never keep it straight   
as witnessed yesterday when i got the names mixed  wisteria and willow  -- one seems to be responding to med- and probably has lyme-- i know exactly which dog it is--- but which name goes with that dog--- is another of those binary problems that give me trouble.
 
-all is quiet with  chaos pups after the fiasco of  chaos sitting on one and having it be blue when earlene and i grabbed it and started resuscitation... which worked...  the whole thing was so upsetting i had to eat 2 klondike bars to recover.
i actually think gladys was the  one to notice.   but earline and i flew into action  oblivious of the camera- so there were a raft of comments to answer-- most were amazed at the speed with which we responded... getting chaos off th e pup was not an easy matter.
blue tongue is  an indication that you better not go make coffee and then deal.
 
they wanted reality--- we have reality...
 
i will be glad when we start solid foods and chaos can come and go under supervision...  except we are at the start with the moxie bunch.
 
pups   have survived for years without someone watching-- this is true-- but normally you loose some-- and every one we loose could be a person's ability to have a service dog...
 
so all of us are a little short on sleep--
 
i had to notice-----   after 36 hours  awake.....the 2 people with the most stamina and look perfectly normal with their hair even combed are earlene and blue gwen  neither of whom have an ounce of fat on them..----- makes me wonder------ 
 make that 3 people and add hilary--- our 98 pound wonder....  there has to be some relationship--
 
 i figure ----- i am 20 pounds overweight it amounts to carrying around a 20 pound bag of dog food-- no wonder they can out work me-- and age has nothing to do with  that... it is  the klinedike bars... and the addiction to  icecream parties.  and things like gravy , butter and even salad is better with whipped cream on it.
 
i best away from that topic.-----
**************
the calendars--- finally.... maybe .... kitty is comfortable with the  horrendous details of the choosing and spelling of  each word.   she said maybe ... just maybe we would have them nov 12 ish...   i had to put that in there-- it is like the irqq war-- got to set a goal date.
 
in prep for handling the mailing.... we have a bucket-- into which we can put the checks and addresses of  people who want to preorder  -we can go with the known postaGE ETC  OF $20 PER CALENDAR AND ADD $5 POSTAGE FOR UP TO 10 CALENDARS--

manny report
 
Manny is doing great! He has a soul all his own & it's a privilege to watch him grow into himself with all his quirky ways. I'm thinking like most Danes Manny, doesn't like the cold or rain. As far as the rain I'm lucky he has been kind enough to hold on until he feels the rain won't rip through him like razor blades instead of finding a corner in the house. As far as the cold weather. I have purchased him a very nice coat for inclement weather with fleece underneath as well as his service patches sewn on to it. He LOVES his coats! My friend Megan that you met on our last visit has made Manny coats for just hanging around the house out of sweatshirts & fleece. It really takes the chill out of him & he enjoys the attention of being called extra handsome & a pretty boy! ...Manny has truly helped me and continues to help me physically & emotionally more than I ever imagined possible. ..As the calendars become available would you please have 5 of them for Manny.

GOOOOOD MORNING---  IN PREPERATION FOR  ANOTHER DAY-- I HAVE EVEN CLEANED MY GLASSES---- --THANKS TO  BLUE GWEN AND JACK I SLEPT A TOTAL OF10 HOURS (BLUE GWEN HAS 2 BLUE DANES AS OPPOSED TO DAUGHTER GWEN )   BACK TO EXPLAINING THINGS TO QUESTONS I SEE ON THIS  LIST.....
WHAT IS THAT SWINGING ROPE?
THE ROPE IS ESSENTIAL-- THERE IS A SHORT "FENCE"  IN REALITY IT IS WIRE SHELVING FROM HOME DEPOT-- BUT AS PEOPLE STEP OVER IT   SEVERAL HAVE CAUGHT A TOE AND FALLEN INTO TH EPEN OF PUPPIES...  MOTHER DOGS DO NOT LIKE PEOPLE MOVING QUICKLY TOWARD THEIR PUPS AND GO INTO ATTACK MODE VERY QUICKLY--- AS CHAOS DID YESTERDAY WHEN I BEGAN TO MOVE FAST AND  HANDLE HER PUP FASTER THAN SHE WAS READY FOR ME TO DO...SO TO PREVENT ANYONE FROM FALLING TOWARD THE PUPS... I PUT IN THAT LOVELY 1" COTTON ROPE- AND THE RULE IS  IF YOU ARE AROUND THAT FENCED AT ALL YOU MUST HANG ONTO THE ROPE-- OR ENDURE MY WRATH.
THIS IS GOING TO BE A LONG  WHATEEVER IT IS... SINCE WE HAVE HAD THAT ROPE UP (? 4 YEARS--)- I DO PUT IT IN THE WASHING MACHINE WHEN IT GETS GRUBBY.  HERE IS THE INTERESTING PART-- AT LEAST I THITTNK SO.*****MY HUSBAND AT AGE 94 BEGAN TO HAVE STABILITY PROBLEMS-- SO I HUNG A FEW MORE ROPES-- ONE IN FRONT OF HIS CHAIR AND BESIDE HIS BED..  SCREWED INTO A BEAM WITH A HEAVY HOOK... THESE WORK BEAUTIFULLY-- MOVING ALONG... WE HAVE ALOT OF PEOPLE WITH CANES AND CRUTCHES WHO COME IN HERE-- THEY FIND THE ROPES ALLOW THEM TO MOVE MUCH EASIER THAN THE CANES AND CRUTCHES..  SO WE ADDED A FEW MORE  TOTAL; OF  5 IN THE HOUSE,,, . MAKING THE PLACE LOOK VERY STRANGE BUT PEOPLE GET USED TO THEM -- AND I FIND WHEN PEOPLE STAND AROUND AND TALK-- EVEN THE PEOPLE WITHOUT A MOBILITY ISSUE  HANG ONTO TH ESE ROPES. NOW TO THE VERY WIERD PART-  MY HUSBAND HAD ALTZHEIMERS AND IT WAS HARD TO KEEP TRACK OF HIM SOMETIMES-- SOOOO BEING AN OLD DRAFT HORSE OWNER, I HAD A STRING OFLOVELY BRASS  DRAFT HORSE SLEIGH BELLS  -- SO I TOOK THE STRING APART AND ATTACHED 2 TO THE BOTTOM OF SOME OF THE ROPES-- AND I COULD TELL WHERE HE WAS BY THE TONES OF THE DIFFERENT BELLS..
IT WORKED--- FOR A LONG TIME--
BY THE WAY --- THOSE  BRASS BELLS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND NOT EXPENSIVE AT THE OLD  AMISH HARNESS SHOP-- SMUCKERS HARNESS IN PENNA- LAST I KNEW THOSE BELLS WERE FROM $5 TO $25 EACH DEPENDING ON TH E SIZE

  2. I have dogs that like sweatshirts in the winter time too... labs that shouldnt need them but they saw my granddog ( long haired chi) with sweaters and looked at me like "where's mine???" TJ was so short and any snow he had to plow through so he had a winter coat or two also... they all like cuddling under fleece blankets on the couch too ....Jennifer from MO
