January 4, 2013


BIG ... WELL ACTUALLY VERY TINY... NEWS 
 
WE TOOK NOEL DOWN TO GEORGE FOR A "FREE  FINGER  FEELIE " PREGO  EXAM-- AND HE ALSO DID AN ULTRASOUND
AS HE CRAWLED AROUND THE FLOOR-- HE SAID "THERE IS ONE PUP"--
 WHAT SEEMED LIKE 14 HOURS OF AGONY LATER HE SAID" THERE IS MORE THAN ONE PUP."
SO BARRING THE UNFORSEEN-- ALONG ABOUT THE FIRST OF FEB-- WE SHOULD HAVE NEW PUPPIES...
 
BUMPY X NOEL  SO DON'T LOOK FOR ALL HARLS... SINCE BOTH  PARENTS ARE BLACK. YOU MIGHT GET SOME BLACK AND SOME BLACK WITH WHITE MARKINGS
 
THE OLIVE ( MERLE) WITH WALTER OR  BUMPY IS MORE PROMISING FOR COLOR
 
OLIVE X BUMPY  (MERLE X BLACK/WH) SHOULD/COULD BE 50% BLACK  25% MERLE 25% HARL
OLIVE X WALTER (MERLE X HARL) COULD BE 25%MERLE 25%HARL 25%BLACK 25% WHITE
 
THAT  25% WHITE COULD BE DEAF IF THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH BLACK SPOTS... WE HAVE TRAINED SOME GREAT DEAF DOGS-- THE ENTIER LITTER DEAF  WOULD NOT BE FUN/// BUT ONE DEAF  HERE AND THERE IS NOT A PROBLEM... AT LEAST YET.. ---- PANDEMONIUM WAS    A LOVELY DOG...
 
SOMEWHERE THERE EXISTS A CHART OF THE  POSSIBLE  PERCENTAGES OF COLORS FROM BREEDING HARLS... A GENETIC STUDY-- FI ANYONE CAN FIND THAT CHART PASS IT ON TO ME-- I HAVE THE PRINTED CHART HERE IN TH EOFFICE...  IT SEEMS PRETTY ACCURATE OVER TH LONG RUN.
**************************
 
LAST NIGHT'S INFOMERCIAL CONCERNED HAIR LOSS-    THEY  CONSTANTLY MADE THE COMMENT  "YOU CAN SWIM WITH THIS HAIR PRODUCT"
IN MY SEMI AWAKE STATE-- I THOUGHT "BEFORE  SOMEONE SMEARS THIS ALL OVER THEIR HEAD AND JUMPS IN THE DEEP END-- THEY BETTER KNOW HOW TO SWIM IN THE FIRST PLACE."
***************
HAIR----MY ABILITY TO TRAIN DOGS IS SECOND TO MY ABILITY TO GROW HAIR.  I DID HAVE A 24" LONG BRAID--  WHICH I DONATED TO LOCKS OF LOVE--
 
I HAD TO CUT IT OFF- GRAVITY  BEING WHAT IT WAS - THE FACT THAT IT TOOK THE BACK OF MY NECK 48 HOURS TO DRY AFTER I WASHED IT  MADE FOR GREAT CULTURE MEDIUM... AND FUNNY THINGS BEGAN  TO GROW IN THE FOREST OF THE BACK OF MY HEAD.,  I TRIED TO AIR IT OUT -- AFTER WASHING IT-- TO TIE  IT UP AND OVER THE RAFTERS WHILE I SIT AT THE COMPUTER. 
 JANINE CAME IN AND THOUGHT I 'D BEEN  STRUCK BY LIGHTNING.   THAT DIDN'T WORK-- IT HAD TO GO.
 
SO I NOW HAVE SHORT HAIR- WHICH IS MUCH MORE LABOR INTENSIVE .. IT NEEDS CUTTING OFTEN.  LUCKILY  JIL-- A CAMERA PERSON WHO  WATCHES THE CONDITION OF MY HEAD, COMES ROUND WITH  HER HAIR CUTTING SCISSORS WHEN I BEGIN TO LOOK TOO SHABBY ON THE TV.-- HOPEFULLY TODAY IS THE DAY.
 
EVEN EARLENE JOINED IN THE "CARLENE'S HAIR PROBLEMS" AND GOT ME A CURLING IRON-- MINUS THE DIRECTIONS--  AFTER  I  NEARLY SET FIRE TO MY HEAD, SHE SHOWED ME HOW TO ONLY SLIGHTLY FRY IT INTO  CURVES
 
 I AM SUPPOSED TO LOOK NORMAL BY  NEXT MONDAY.
***************
AND ANNE IS BLOWING HER NOSE...AND WORRYING ABOUT PRESSURIZING HER EARS IN FLIGHT.
 
IT WILL BE A FUN TRIP
************
I SPENT SOME TIME ON THE PHONE WITH TIM ( EXPLORE TECHNICAL PERSON...) YESTERDAY DOING ALL SORTS OF TECHNICAL THINGS ---I FELT VERY SOPHISTICATED.... PUSH THE  RED BUTTON TWICE-   NOW... UNPLUG... PLUG IN...  THINGS LIKE THAT.
 
HE WANTS TO DO SOME OTHER THINGS  TODAY-- IN THAT BOX IN THE BARN--- AND I AM TO CALL HIM ABOUT 9AM TODAY---
I HOPE PAUL SHOWS UP---  BEING HARD OF HEARING- NOT IN STEP WIHT CELL PHONES IN GENERAL AND STANDING ON A LADDER IN TH EPUPPY ROOM IN THE BARN...  MAY PROVE A CHALLANGE  TO ME.  ( AND PROBABLY A BIGGER CHALLANGE TO TIM)
***************
SHELIA-- A PERSON FROM DANVERS WHO HAS A HOME SERVICE COMPANY CAME BY WITH HER HUSBAND AND AN ELECTRICAL GENUIS WHO WILL GET OUR  DRYING MACHING RUNNING SOON----?THIS WEEK? / THIS IS FRIDAY???
HE SUGGESTS IT DRAWS SO MUCH ELECTRICITY THAT WE  DON'T RUN IT ON HIGH-- SOUNDS REASONABLE...
 
SHE OFFERD TO VOLUNTEER AND I SUGGESTED SHE START IN TODAY- or whenever... she has had danes and is a great puppy patter.
**************
 
THE  UPS  SURPRISES OF THE DAY --- INCLUDED  BLANKETS-  13 JUGS OF- DOG FRIENDLY ICE MELT- SOME CUT CARDBOARDS  , SNAPS., CHOCOLATES, MOPS-  MACHINE TYPE  TEA FOR EARLENE--  A COUPLE CHECKS AND SOME REQUESTS FOR PUPPY BREATHS. MANY THANKS TO EVERYONE 
 
I NEED TO AMEND THE REQUEST  FOR  CEREAL BOXES  TO     "OR BEER HOLDERS "
WE ARE GETTING ALOT OF THOSE AND THEY WORK VERY WELL TOO.  MUST BE THE SUNDAY FOOTBALL GAMES....
**************
FINALLY--- THE PUPPY POO'S ARE ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL-- GOOD FIRM CYLINDARS YOU CAN ROLL RIGHT OFF THE TOWELS ONTO THE CARDBOARDS-
 
SH#T ON A SHINGLE---- IF EVER THERE WAS ANY..
 
 WHAT MORE COULD I ASK FOR ???
