December 8, 2012

I HAVE FINALLY JOINED THE GROWN UP WORLD... maybe
I GOT A MESSAGE ON MY CELL AND I FORWARDED IT TO THIS COMPUTER SO I COULD PUT IT IN THE DD
 
THIS IS A HUGE STEP FORWARD ALL BY MYSELF I DID IT !
 
HI CARLENE
 
IT HAS BEEN AWHILE SINCE I SHARED MY HAPPY LIFE WITH MY MOBILITY DOG.
 
 VAYLU IS SO MUCH MORE. HE IS MY BEST FRIEND. WE HAVE BEEN PARTNERED TOGETHER FOR 5.6 YRS NOW. WHAT DID I DO WITHOUT HIM. NOT MUCH. I AM CONFIDENT WHEN I AM OUT AND ABOUT. WE ENJOY EVERYTHING AND IF IT'S A ROUGHER DAY THAN I PLANNED FOR WE HANG OUT TOGETHER ON THE COUCH.
 
 I WOULD SAY HE IS PAMPERED. CARLENE, I AM WATCHING HIS WEIGHT AND HE IS A HEALTHY 148LBS. MY VET CALLS HIM A ONE OF A KIND. I AGREE. HE DOES HAVE SOME ARTHRITIS IN HIS KNEES. UGH.
 
I AM AWARE WHEN HE NEEDS TO LAY DOWN WHILE HE PATIENTLY WAITS AT THE DELI OR ANY LONG STANDING TIMES. I AM THANKFUL FOR IAADP~ INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF ASSISTANCE DOG PARTNERS. THEY PAY FOR VAYLU'S COSEQUIN DS. DOES HELP.
 
 I JUST WANT EVERYONE INVOLVED WITH SDP TO KNOW THAT YOUR HARD WORK TO PROVIDE SERVICE DOGS IS PRICELESS. I AM FOREVER THANKFUL.
 DAWN & VAYLU.
***********************************
THAT IS TO REMIND EVERYONE WHY WE GO THRU ALL THIS--- IT IS NOT ONLY TO PLAY WITH PUPPIES AND ENTERTAIN PEOPLE IN NEW ZEALAND ON EXPLORE.ORG
 
IT IS ALSO TO BE EDUCATIONAL
 
IN THAT FRAME OF REFERENCE-- THERE WAS A DISCUSSION WHEN EXPLORE PUT THE CAMERAS IN THAT WE LEAVE OUT THE SOUND--- I WISH IN PLACE OF THE SOUND WE COULD SEND THE SMELL  OVER THE AIRWAVES...
 
I TOLD YOU LONG AGO THAT LITTLE PUPPIES MAINTAINED BY THEIR MOM'S DON'T SMELL- AND THEY DON'T..
HOWEVER........AS THEY GET OLDER AND GET ON REGULAR DOG FOOD.......EVEN THO WE KEEP THEM EXTREMELY CLEAN--- THERE IS AN "AIRE " ABOUT THIS PLACE NOW  ..
 
MUST BE THE WET NEWSPAPERS,,
 
IT CHALLANGES THAT  NI712 STUFF ( AT $100 A GALLON... IT IS GOOD... BUT...)
 
I DO NOT KNOW WHY OR HOW... BUT WE DO OWN AN ORECK AIR CLEANER--  I FOUND IT YESTERDAY IN THE BACK OF SOME CLOSET----- LOOK OUT DAVE-- WE ARE ABOUT TO TEST YOUR PRODUCT   FOR REAL... THE DAVE ORECK CHALLANGE IS NOTHING COMPARED TO THE CARLENE'S PUPPY CHALLANGE...
TO BE CONTINUED....
 
I REMEMBER.....I HAD TO BORROW A BULLDOG PUPPY FOR A COMERCIAL ONE DAY AND WENT TO PICK IT UP-- EVEN OUTSIDE HER HOUSE   I COULD SMELL THAT TELTALE ODOR OF LESS THAN TIDY PUPPY-- AND HER HUSBAND HAD HIS OFFICE IN THE HOUSE-- AND HE WAS A DENTIST...
 
I HAVE ALWAYS FOUGHT THAT  IMAGE...
 
SO ON WITH THE AIR CLEANER-- IT IS WELL BEYOND FABREESE.
 
ANOTHER I REMEMBER... THERE WAS ONE OF THOSE  FALSE  RUMORS THAT FLY AROUND THE INTERNET THAT FABRESE KILLS DOGS--- EVER SINCE... EVERY FABRESE COMMERCIAL  I HAVE SEEN HAS A DOG IN IT.  THAT IS WHY.
***************************
COLLEEN WAS HERE OVERNIGHT--DID A GREAT JOB--   SHE LIVES 3 MILES AWAY ( HAVING SPENT OVER A YEAR TRYING TO BUY THAT HOUSE  FROM SOME BANK -- EVEN AFTER THE PREVIOUS OWNER TOOK THE BARN DOWN AND AWAY)  SHE HAS A  DOG GROOMING BUSINESS IN LYNN--  SHE HAD DONALD-- MY FIRST PRACTICE SERVICE DOG  WHO DIED AT 14  AND LATELY ABBY FINALLY GOT VERY TIRED AND IS NOW SLEEPING--- WOBBLED HAPPILY FOR 13 YEARS... AND NOW HAS  BOBBY SINCE  WE RETIRED HIM...
SHE KNOWS DOGS.
*************
 
 MEGAN IS OUT DEALING WITH  THE 7 MONTH OLD PUPS- TRAINING-- THEY ALL NEED ABOUT 40 MILES  ..AND SOME STARBUCK SITTINGS--
 
ONE OF OUR SIGNIFICANT TRAINING MANEUVERS IS TO "ACHIEVE BOREDOM"  IN  MALLS AND CROWDS-- ONLY THEN CAN YOU TEACH THEM ANYTHING...  SO WE SIT AROUND AT STARBUCKS ETC....
 WITH THIS BUNCH WE ARE BACK TO  MANNEQUIN TRAINING "WHY IS THAT PERSON STANDING SO STILL STARING AT ME?"-- OR THE ARCADE HORSE--- OR THE MIRROR OVER THE MEAT COUNTER IN SHAWS MARKET... THE LIST IS ENDLESS..
IT IS HARD TO GO FROM A TRAINED SERVICE DOG  BACK TO THE BEGINNING WHERE A BALLOON OVER THE CASH REGISTER CAN SEND YOU CAREENING BACKWARDS INTO THE MAYONASE DISPLAY.
 
GO FOR IT MEGAN....
 
I REMEMBER (HERE WE GO AGAIN....) THE DAY I WENT TO THE HOSPITAL AND RAN INTO  A NEW RECEPTIONIST-- TOLD HER WHY I WAS THERE-- AND HEARD HER CALL SECURITY " THERE IS SOME IDIOT IN THE LOBBY WHO WANTS TO TRAIN HER DOG IN THE ELEVATOR."  
 
 
TIME TO MAKE THE COFFEEE???
 NO...
 TIME TO START THE AIR CLEANER/

  1. Carlene - if that Oreck doesn't work, I am am firm believer in Living Air by Ecoquest. I have had one of their ionic air cleaners for years. My dogs have been sprayed by skunks a total of 7 times (they never learn) and I don't leave them outside. After a bath of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, while they still have some scent on them, you won't smell it in the house unless you get your nose very close to the source. They are awesome. You can find some decent deals on eBay. Good luck! ~ Kelley
