January 21, 2013


marks pictures from yesterday are up...   http://servicedogproject.shutterfly.com/
 
and -- for those of you keeping track of weights, there is a photo of  sheet of paper with all their weights on it that we used to figure the allwormer pills. 
 
yesterday was very exciting with ...
 
shall i push the  red button?
no try unplugging
still blue screen?
yes-
- try black button and wait 10 seconds
i did that
well do it again.....
 
  for maybe 2 hours?????  i finally told tim i was going across the driveway to stew... and came back 3 hours later and  the screen was not blue--- it was black.  but he did get it going eventually.
 
i do not understand how it ( this explore camera) can run perfectly and with no one touching it.. decide to just quit-- but that is why i am a button pusher as opposed to a technical design person.
**************
 
 the tirade of the day has to be about phone calls .
 
i go to bed when the overnight person gets here  (7pm)
at some point in raising pups you have to calculate priorities and take as few chances as possible.
there are several facts
 
with dane pups..... the world is their chew toy
with camera people it is possible to mentally get twisted round one thought.so absolutely nothing is as important as calling me after bedtime  to tell me  something i already know.
"there is a bird in the dog's room"
"the dogs can't sleep with the lights on"
"they are tearing up a blanket"
 
and before you get caught up with the  " what if it forms a blockage in their gut?"
there have been at least 14,000 other what if's  since they were born.-starting with  they eat rocks !
at some point you have to take a chance- hopefully small- 
  and you can not play the   game  of
hover round with  threat of 20-20 hindsight so i can say i told you so
 
if the barn is on fire please do call me--otherwise  call each other
 
let me rephrase that-- anyone who wakes me up after bed time - and th e barn is not on fire--- will have their number posted online  so everyone can call them at 7am from  whatever time zone they  live.
 
p.s.  if the barn is on fire-- all the animals have an  in/out door but  do call
******************
 
today schedule
 
dr apt   11am
 
meeting with maria at 8am  to try and figure out a schedule to improve the training capabilities of megan, colleen,maria's 5 kids and myself.... without spending all the grant money we will be receiving
 
the grant is to  increase our output of trained dogs.. which means once we get all the  details in place  and produce more pups....we will be even more dependent on the food/fuel funds of the chicken sh#t numbers.... along with all th e  other donations.-- so this is not a reason to figure we need fewer donations, but rather more..
 
someone might call it a bold step forward... that would be the polite people
 
others might say "whatAREyou  nuts??"
 
2 more litters soon.... nuppies and oopsies.
