December 12, 2012

JUST WHEN YOU THINK EVERYTHING POSSIBLE HAS HAPPENED....
 
WILLOW GOT HER LOWER JAW STUCK IN THE SOFT CHEW TOY ONCE MORE PROVING YOU CAN NOT ANTRICIPATE AND PREPARE FOR EVERYTHING  THAT WILL BE THROWN AT YOU.
************
MAJOR DISCUSSION OF THE DAY IS PERRY
 
AND I WILL PREFACE IT WITH   IMO    IN MY OPINION-- WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT BE WHAT THE CURRENT VETERNARY PRACTICE SUGGESTS-- I AM SURE I WILL HEAR FROM GEORGE ON THIS...
(MAYBE HE WILL AGREE--- BUT DON'T COUNT ON IT)
 
***************
SEVERAL WEEKS AGO-ABOUT NOV 26 TH  WILLOW WAS DREADFUL AND I WAS THINKING MAYBE SHE WAS NOT GOING TO MAKE IT...( SHE IS NEARLY FINE NOW  FOR THE MOMENT...) I WENT DOWN AND LOOKED OVER THE REST OF THE LITTER  LOOKING SPECIFICALLY FOR SIGNS OF HOD-- WHICH IS WHAT WILLOW HAS...
 
AND I NOTICED PERRY WAS WALKING LIKE HE HAD A LOAD IN HIS DIAPER.-- A STRANGE SWAGGER WHERE THE TAIL ALMOST WAGS THE DOG... I HAVE SEEN THAT BEFORE--- SO I WATCHED  - NEXT PROGRESSION IS HE STARTED TO PACE-- THIS IS NOT PACE BACK AND FORTH-- IT IS 2 LEGS ON THE SAME SIDE MOVE FORWARD TOGETHER GIVING THE DOG A SWINGING/SKIPPING LOOK/- HE WAS NOT DOING IT ALL THE TIME-- BUT OCASSIONALLY- THE REST OF THE TIME HE TROTED WITH DIAGIONAL FEET-- AS HE SHOULD.\ 
 TO ME-- PACING MEANS THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG SOMEWHERE..
A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF LAB SERVICE DOGS PACE-- AND "THEY" DON'T THINK ANYTHING ABOUT IT...   BUT  I DON'T LIKE IT.
 
SOMETIMES WHATEVER THE CAUSE- GOES AWAY AND THEY ARE EBETTER...- SOMETIMES IT GETS WORSE AND THEY WILL OCASIONALLY FALL SIDEWAYS-- AND TTHEN GET UP ON THEIR OWN WITH NO APPARENT PROBLEM.- THIS IS WHERE PERRY IS AT THE MOMENT...
 
COULD GEORGE DIAGNOSE WHATEVER... CERTAINLY-- BUT WHAT WOULD IT COST AND WHAT WOULD HE THEN DO?   THE ROAD IS A BUNCH OF MRI'S AND XRAYS AND THEN SURGERY-- WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE 85% EFFECTIVE- 
 
ANOTHER THING VETS WILL DO-- AND GEORGE AND HIS ASSOCIATES WOULD NOT DARE TO DO WITH ME IN THE ROOM.... TO TEST THE DOG ... VETS HAVE BEEN TAUGHT TO LIFT THIER CHIN WAY UP AND PRESS THIER NECK FORWARD TIL THE DOG YELPS- AT WHICH POINT-- IF THEY DID NOT HAVE A NECK PROBLEM ALREADY..., THEY NOW DO. 
 
THAT "TEST" GETS YOU NO WHERE  AND POSSIBLY DOES DAMAGE.
 
 I HAVE SEEN ALOT OF DOGS HAVE SURGERY AND IT MADE THEM WORSE AND IN PAIN FOR THE NEXT 6 MONTHS WHEN THEY ARE FINALLY PUT TO SLEEP.  IN ALL HONESTY  I KNOW OF ONE DANE-- A WHITE /DEAF DANE WHO  WAS NATIONAL CHAMPION AGILITY DANE... NICO-- GOT BETTER. ALL THE OTHER SURGICAL CASES HAVE GONE FROM  A COMFORTABLE WOBBLE TO  A MISERABLE INFIRMATY.  -  I HAVE SEEN A FEW GO DOWN HILL FAST TIL THEY FINALLY CAN NOT USE THIER FRONT LEGS EITHER... SOME JUST WOBBLE--ONE WAS ABBY- WHO JUST RECIENTLY DIED AT 13 YEARS OLD-- ANOTHER WAS GIGI- A HOUSE DOG OF OURS THAT GOT KICKED BY A DONKEY( NOT MARY) -- SHE DIED AT 9 YEARS HAVING SPENT HER LIFE ON   RUBBER BACKED BATH MATS AT EVERY CORNER  OF THE HOUSE  AND MANY TIMES WHEREVER SHE FELL SHE WOULD STAY TIL SOMEONE CAME ALONG AND PUT HER BACK ON HER FEET... -- SHE COULD ALWAYS JUMP A 3' FENCE... IT WAS JUST  TURNING CORNERS THAT GAVE HER TROUBLE. SHE ENJOYED LIFE-- EVEN HAD AN UNPLANNED PREGANACY WITH SOME SUPER PUPS-- LIKE "BROWNIE"-
 
FOR THE DOG'S ENTIRE LIFE-- EVERY PERSON WHO HAS EVER READ ANY BOOK ( OR THE INTERNET) WILL EXPLAIN TO YOU   IN GREAT DETAIL HOW"YOUR DOG HAS HIP DYSPLASIA"  SOME PEOPLE WILL GT ANNOYED AT YU IF YOU DON'T AGREE WIHT THEM...  THE DOG  CERTAINLY COULD HAVE HIP DYSPLASIA   -- BUT THEY ALSO COULD HAVE PERFECT HIP JOINTS...AS GIGI DID. 
 
WHEN YOU HAVE AN ANIMAL OR A CHILD-- YOU TAKE WHAT YOU GET.AND IN THE CASE OF GIGI  WE DID NOT GO FOR THE $5000 SURGERY AND PROBABLY SPENT THAT IN RUBBER BACKED BATH MATS-- SHE WAS A LOVELY DOG- WHO WOBBLED.  SO WAS ABBY...  I HAVE NOT HAD MANY WOBBLERS--  BUT IT CERTAINY DOES HAPPEN.
 
SO WE/ YOU  WILL NOW ALL STOP THE MOANING AND GROANING EVERY TIME PERRY FALLS  OVER...
 AND YES  HE IS IN WITH THE GIRLS- THEY DON'T CALL FEMALE DOGS B#TCHES FOR NOTHING.  WE WILL WATCH  AND SEPARATE IF AND WHEN THE BENEFITS DON'T  OUTWEIGH THE CHANCE OF INJURY  IN OUR OPINION.
AND YES HE WILL GO ON TO SOME KIND OF PRODUCTIVE LIFE AS A COMPANION TO SOMEONE WHO CAN COPE WITH HIS NEEDS
AND NO- THE 17,000 OF YOU WHO WANT HIM, HE WILL PROBABLY BE PLACED WITH SOMEONE AROUND HERE SO WE CAN CONTINUE TO MONITOR HIM FOR EDUCAIONAL PURPOSES...
 
20 20 HINDSIGHT WILL NOT BE ENTERTAINED..   WE WILL NOT KEEP HIM SAFELY IN A CRATE.---  HE CAN GO 13 YEARS OR 2 
 
HE IS HAVING A GOOD TIME... GET OFF HIS NECK !!
 
NEXT---
WE HAVE PUMPKIN BACK... MAJOR DISASTER HAS HAD MORE MAJOR PROBLEMS NEEDING SPECIFIC HOSPITALIZATION.. I HAVE TOALKE WITH MAJOR'S NEIGHBORS AND DAUGHTERS- AND WE ALL FELT SHE WAS HAVING TROUBLE CARING FOR PUMPKIN-  THAT BEING THE CASE,  SHE COMES BACK HERE.
 
AND THERE IS A BIG  RECLINER CHAIR IN NEWTON - SOMEHOW I NEED TO FIND THE HORSE TRAILER ( WHO  COULD LOOSE THAT ?? WE COULD)  AND GO GET IT IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS. 
THE DURANGO IS BACK FROM THE FIXERS... AS IS THE COA VAN.... AS IS THE SMALL VAN..  NOW IF I CAN JUST FIND THE  HORSE TRAILER.. 
 
MEGAN'S FATHER IS LOCATING HIS RELATIVE WHO IS A PLUMBER...
AND THE DRYER WILL ARRIVE THURSDAY AFTERNOON..
 
LINN FOUNDATION HAS DONATED MONEY FOR CHAIN LINK IN THE LAUNDRY  SO I WILL MEASURE AND  ORDER THAT TODAY  ALONG WITH THE CHAIN LINK FOR THE NUTT HOUSE... SINCE  PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SO KIND LATELY...
 
NOW FOR TH E  PROBLEM-- IN A NUTSHELL
 
WE BRED NOEL AND  BENTLEY  12/3
 WE WIL NOT HAVEE ANY IDEA OF PREGNANCY
 FOR 25 DAYS-?   DEC 26-30?
 
SHE DID NOT CONCIEVE LAST TIME WE BRED HER.
OLIVE IS HERE--IN HEAT
SATRUDAY WILL BE HER 8TH DAY ( PROBABLY FERTILE TIME)
SATURDAY IS TOO SOON TO TELL IF NOEL IS CARRYING PUPS...
 
THESE PUPS WOULD BE FOR  RECIPIENTS 2014
 
IF WE DO NOT BREED THEM WE WILL HAVE NO PUPS IN TRAINING IN 2014
 
SO WE BREED THEM- AND PRAY THAT THE CAMERA CROWD CONTINUES TO SUP[ORT US WITH CHICKNE S#HIT  NUMBERS AND PUPPY BREATH DONATIONS OFF OUR WEB..
 
I HAVE A HUGE FEAR OF MORE DOGS THAN I CAN SUPPORT.
SO I AM HAVING FAITH YOU ALL WILL CONTIMUE...
 
IF YOU DON'T I WILL HAVE A LEMONADE STAND ON THE CORNER WITH DANE PUPS.
