February 25, 2013

I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START--- WHICH IS SOMETIMES A PERFECTLY GOOD REASON TO QUIT AND DO SOMETHIG ELSE...
 
AND THER IS ALOT OF THAT STUFF PILING UP BEHIND ME...
 
THERE IS ONE PERSON ON THIS COMPUTER STUFF WHO  HATES ME/US AN IS POSTING HOW AWFUL WE ARE..
THERE IS ONE IN EVERY CROWD-- THE GLASS IS  HALF EMPTY/FULL KIND....
 
SHE HAS DECLARED US TOTALLY INCOMPETEMNT BECAUSE I COULDN'T TELL  A MALE FROM  FEMALE PUP-- WHY COLD SHE NOT SEE-- I GOT 9 RIGHT???
*
IT AIN'T EASY-- IT IS CROWDED DOWN THERE--- WITH UMBILICAL CORD SWINGING- AND MOMMY DOG'S NOSE  TRYING TO  BITE AT IT...  SO ELEN BECAME LAHR- OR SWOMETHIGN LIKE THAT...
IT WAS A TOUGH COUUPLE DAYS..WITH NOT ENOUGH SLEEP
*****
I CAN TELL BECAUSE I CANT DO THE EVEN EASY SUDOKO PUZZLES--- ON A WELL RESTED  GOOD DAY I CAN DO THE  5 STAR ONES.--
 
NOT TODAY.
*****
IN MY SLEEPY CONDITION I HAVE WALTZED IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA SEVRAL TIMES-
- DEMO-ING  I AIN'T NO EARLENE   WHO STAYS IN MODEL CONDITION AMID ALL KINDS OF SQUALLOR.
*****
OLIVE HAD THE 10 LIVE+ ONE STILLBORN-- BUT CONTINUED TO HAVE CONTRACTIONS AS YOU ALL PORIBABLY SAW- AND LOOKED MISERABLE-- I KNEW SHE HAD RETAINED 7 PLACENTSAS-   SO I WAS KEEPING TRACK OF HER TEMP-- THEN IT GBEGAN TO RISE  103.4- AND I FIGURED I BETER GET AHEAD OF WHATEVER AND CALLED GOERGE.. WHO FORTUNATELY  SAID HE WAS HOME AND COULD DEAL- 
 COLLEEN AND BUD ROSE TO THE OCASSION FROM HERE AND PRISCILLA MET US...- AND XRAY PROVED 1 PUP-- PROBALBLY DEAD.. AND HE WENT BETWEEN OPERATIONG WITHOUT HIS NORMAL HELP-- OR WAITING TIL MORNING---. OLIVE WAS MISERABLE - WITH CONTRACTIONS EVERY 30 SECONDS-  HE GAVE HER SOME MORE CALCIUM AND ANOTHER PIT SHOT AND STARTED TO SHAVE HER LEG-- HE HAD THE PRE ANESTHEIC SHOT IN HIS HAND WHEN BUD WALKED OVER AND SAID "LOOKS LIKE A PUPPY" -- SHE PASSED THE DEAD PUP ALONG WITH A HUGE COLLEDTION OF  "STUFF"  AND FELT MUCH BETTER
 
WE CAME HOME-
******
I SLEPT (HA! ) ON THE COUCH BEHIND HER- AND GOOD THING-- THIS IS A WANDERING BUNCH-- WE WOULD HAVE LOST AT LEAST 2- ONE MADE IT ALL THE WAY TO THE COLD FLOOR ?6 FEET- AND NEEDED A RIDE BACK.. PLUS SEVERAL OTHER WANDERERS.  BEHIND HER..
 
AND THAT IS ALL I CAN REMEMBER RIGHT NOW.
*****
I HAVE GOT TO STOP TRYNG TO JUSTIFY WHAT KI DO TO KEEP THE ONE OR TWO ABSOLUTE NUTS HAPPY-- MOST OF THESE CAMERA PEOPLE ARE VERY NICE  AND UNDERSTAND-- BUIT THERE ARE A SMALL FEW....

  1. There are always those who feel they need to justify their existence by bringing others down. Sad but true. Just keep on doing all the wonderful things you do. Karma will eventually bit the naysayers in the rear and take care of the problem for you.

  2. You own no one an explanation of anything you do. I know it's hard but just ignore the dumb a**es as they feed on others emotions because theirs are inadequate. You are undertaking an extraordinary project to help others, that is the only thing that's important.

  3. I know it's hard not to listen to the nay-sayers. They manage to get me every time, even while I'm chanting "Don't let one person ruin your day," over and over again. Know FOR A FACT that those people haven't helped anyone in their lives. You, on the other hand, have quite a track record! You're even touching people in foreign countries! Thanks, again, for letting us watch the amazing work all of you do.

    Now, go snuggle with one of those goofy danes. You know they can make it all better. I know mine does!

  4. CARLENE...YOU ARE AN AMAZING WOMAN! PLEASE DON'T LET THE NAY-SAYERS GET TO YOU. YOUR VISION AND COMMITMENT TO THIS BREED AND KNOWLEDGE IN THE WAY THEY THINK, THE WAY THEY LEARN, AND THE INCREDIBLE GIFT THEY WILL BE IN OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES, IS PRICELESS. UNFORTUNATELY, BY OPENING YOUR ORGANIZATION AND LIVES UP TO THE PUBLIC, YOU ALSO OPEN YOURSELVES UP TO THOSE WHO WOULD PREFER TO BE RUDE AND INSENSITIVE, RATHER THAN INFORMED. I'M SURE YOU ARE GETTING MORE THAN WE CP'S CAN SEE THROUGH EMAIL, ETC....BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT FOR EVERY ONE OF THEM, YOU HAVE A WHOLE SLEW OF US BEHIND YOU, SUPPORTING YOU AND SDP. I WISH I COULD RUN INTERFERENCE FOR YOU SO THAT YOU WOULDN'T NEED TO THINK ABOUT THIS STUFF. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK....YOU AND SDP ARE AWESOME!!!

  7. Carlene, you and crew are amazing and dedicated and benefit so many people there simply is nothing anything could say to counter it. The nut job (and I think its just one who keeps changing id's) is unfortunately an attention seeker and probably surfs the web looking for ways to stir a pot. They get off on the attention. Pay no attention to it, we all think you are amazing and we are so grateful you open yourself up completely to us and allow us to enter your home. Rest well, this was an amazing weekend and we thank you!

  8. Blech, I hate a$$hat people who think that just because they are anon behind a screen name that it gives them the right to be snerky jerks. They honestly can't be like that around real people, how else would they have friends? Unless they are, and are friendless... ahwell, just remember Carlene "Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind"

  9. Don't let the Internet nutbars win.

    Lovely dogs, mama is such a sweeheart, and I loved watching the midwifery. Us fans need to thank you for putting up with our gawping at this wonderful event.

    I'm still glue to the sleepy tubby puppies at work, they're a real help.

    Do what you do and nuts to those that want to drag you down.

  10. Living/working in the spotlight will elicit comments supportive, inane, ignorant, silly or sometimes downright nasty. YOU know what you are doing and why you are doing it. You don't need to justify yourself to any of us. Pull up those big girl panties, delete the comments (mentally or electronically) as needed, and keep on keeping on.

    I am learning a lot from you and your operation, Carlene. Thank you for all your hard work!

    ReplyDelete
  11. CARLENE, YOU ARE AN AMAZING PERSON, YOUR VOLUNTEERS ARE SO GREAT AND THE DOGS ARE PRICELESS. I JUST WATCH AND COMMENT RARELY BUT I AM SO SORRY THAT YOU HAVE TO READ SUCH NEGATIVE COMMENTS. PLEASE DON'T LET THEM GET YOU DOWN. FOR EVERY ONE OF THEM THERE ARE PROBABLY A 100 WHO DON'T COMMENT BUT ARE BLESSED BY YOU, SDP AND THE DOGS. I FEEL SO PRIVILEDGED TO BE ALLOWED TO WATCH THEM. THEY BRING SMILES AND LAUGHS TO MY DAY. NO ONE CAN KNOW WHY YOU DO, WHAT YOU DO FROM JUST WATCHING THE SCREEN. IF THEY THINK THEY DO, LET THEM START THEIR OWN ORGANIZATION AS SOMEONE SAID. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIRELESS WORK.

    1. I totally agree. Don't let the looneys steal your joy Carlene. Most of us out here in camera land LOVE all of you dearly!

  12. There are always some who see you doing something good and perhaps something they would like to do and they have to tear it down. Carlene - I don't stay up all night for just anybody but I was up all night watching Olive's pimentoes being born. I am in awe of all of you and I would not look like Earlene, believe me! Thank you for what you do and for allowing us the opportunity to participate vicariously. Those puppies are tiny and I think if you got one sex wrong that's pretty good. I agree totally with those who have already commented and ask that you please don't decide we are too much to put up with. We love you and your helpers and admire all of the work and dedication - all of the dogs look like they are thriving. I'm in love with Bailey and Perry.

  14. You and all your help are fantastic. The love and compassion you show to the moms. And their pups is awesome. I just spent the better part of the last three days and nights watching. It was inspiring, please keep up the good work and stay well. God bless

  15. CARLENE YOU NEVER HAVE TO JUSTIFY ANYTHING YOU DO. EXPLORE IS BANNING THE ONES MAKING THOSE REMARKS, AS WE USE THE FEEDBACK AND COPY THEIR REMARKS, AND EXPLORE DEALS WITH THEM. TROLLS, TROUBLEMAKERS WE WILL NOT ALLOW ON YOUR SITE! WE LOVE ALL OF YOU.

    1. WORD! I Feel VERY Protective of Our Carlene, I know she is a big girl an can take the punches... but I'd rather she didn't have too... an so "note to self" REPORT REMARKS to Explore.org, an to Try "Do Not Feed the Trollish Ego" LOL I know, I want to say, "politely of course" GET THE HECK OUT OF OUR SPECIAL PLACE... but since "sarcasm" and "rude" comments are what Feeds Those Trolls... I Plan to Starve Them, Ha :)

  17. Dearest Carlene,
    I agree completely with Tami J and neighbor_nancy. Your situation reminded me of things my mom and dad would say if they were you.
    To all the Negative Nellies out there:
    My mom: "When you have your own great dane farm, with 40+ dogs to whelp, count, love, feed, board, train, wean, innoculate, and constantly do doodie-duty on behalf of, and when you can do all that to absolute perfection, THEN you can criticize me. Until then, please keep your comments to yourself."
    My dad: "There are two kinds of heels in this world: rubber heels and $h*t heels, and YOU ain't bouncin'!"
    Love you Carlene, and all that you do. Keep up the good work, and remember, for every Negative Nellie, there are a couple hundred of us out here giving you a standing ovation in our hearts.

  18. O Carlene. I know it's easier said than done but please just ignore the people that have something to say that is anything less than positive. Do what I do and roll your eyes and say "whatever". You are amazing and I hope you know that! All of you are just fantastic and I can't even imagine how hard you all work or how much work it really is to keep SDP going on a daily basis. Kudos to all of you and lots of love and hugs and kisses to you all and all the beautiful danes. ((hugs))

  19. Never, ever, ever reward the nay sayers....You all did an excellent job. I was up all night watching...left the room and BOOM there was a puppy. PRAISE THE GOD OF THE DOGS....let's move forward and stay with the positive...energy waste on the people who have to be perfectionists; or whatever they are.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Carlene, you are a STAR & so is Earlene, Megan & everyone who works with you. I know it's difficult, but you must ignore the trolls. I don't know why they do it, but no one on the internet is immune. If we don't feed the flames, they will die for want of attention & that's all these morons want - attention. We must NOT give it to them. Focus on what you do best & to hell with the moaners, complainers & whingers.
    It has been so lovely watching Olive & the Pimentos - I had noticed they have the wandering bug already. :) I'm glad you took Olive to see George & glad she was able to deliver that last, poor, puppy. Hopefully, she will start to feel better in the next few days.
    If when you read this there's someone standing next to you, ask them to give you the BIGGEST hug from me & please believe that many, many people around the world are thinking of you & love you.
    Love & light to everyone - humans & animals - at SDP. Kirsten.

  21. As the saying goes, they should walk a mile in your shoes before making any comments. I train therapy dogs and cannot imagine training as many as you are at one time!! I wished I lived closer so that I could volunteer some time to help. I have also helped bring many puppies into the world and it is not easy to always tell what you have, a boy or a girl!!! Keep up the good work and thank you for what you do.

  22. Ditto to all the positive supportive stuff above. You are an inspiration. Keep up the amazing work.

  23. TA H**L WITH THE IDIOTS WHO PICK AT STUPID DETAILS INSTEAD OF LOOKING AT THE BIG AND VERY REAL PICTURE! BIRTHING ALL THOSE PUPS OVER HOURS AND HOURS WOULD MAKE ANYBODY LOSE COUNT FOR A MINUTE! SO WHAT! ALL WENT WELL IN THE END BECAUSE YOU AND THOSE WITH YOU HAD THEIR HEADS ABOUT THEM, WHERE AND WHEN IT COUNTED! BOY, GIRL, BOY, GIRL....SO WHAT....HEALTHY PUP! THAT'S WHAT!

    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! AND TAKE COMFORT AND PLEASURE IN THE RESULTS WHICH GIVE NEW LIFE TO MANY!

  24. SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST CRUEL OR DOWN RIGHT STUPID...NO OTHER WORD SOMETIMES. YOU, HOWEVER, ARE ONE OF THE MOST PRACTICAL, LEVEL-HEADED, COMPASSIONATE, SELFLESS PEOPLE I HAVE ENCOUNTERED. IN A WAY, I AM GLAD YOU VOICED YOUR HURT. YOU ARE STRONG BUT YOU HAVE FEELINGS AFTER ALL! WEFORGET THAT ABOUT STRONG PEOPLE. HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE IF NOT THOUSANDS ARE INTOTAL SUPPORT OF YOU AND YOUR MISSION. AND SO MANY ARE GIVEN HOPE BECAUSE OF YOUR MISSION AND THE COUNTLESS WAYS YOU AND THEWHOLE CREW MEET THE TASKSAT HAND. MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU FOR THE SACRIFCIES YOU MAKE. YOU ARE LOVED.

  25. You and everybody that helps you are just wonderful, continue with this mission of love. I can assure you that if I didn't live in Florida I would be one of your volunteers.

  26. You're right Carlene, you DO NOT have to justify anything. You and the gang are amazing and I know first hand as I've had the pleasure of meeting you personally (not that I expect you to remember me, not the point). I am in awe of how everyone takes care of these mommies and babies, it's truly awe inspiring and I can't get enough of it. Hope to come up for a visit soon!

  27. Don't justify........I stay away from comments on many cams because of the trolls.You are so devoted & on the mark......I was & am impressed!!

  28. What you do is not a Motion Picture. There's no script, no director and no do-overs. What you see is what you get. It's history...not fiction. And I (and most others) think you do a hell of a good job! You are an amazing woman and you are my hero! As for the ones who don't agree, pardon my French but, "Scr*w 'em!"

  29. Dear, dear Carlene and company,
    What Martha Robins said. I recall my elders saying something similar. The inexperienced were put in their rightful place. If this person commenting had any valid experience they'd be singing your praises. Get rested and let it roll. ( I am somehow reminded of the chicken$hit project... this $hit could be turned into something good too.) GREAT JOB! I marvel at your stamina, commitment, love and patience through it all.

  30. I've learned a long time ago it's not worth getting worked up over what some random strangers on the Internet say. There are, always were, and always will be some idiots in this world. No need to worry about what they think.

  31. Oh, and I think what you're doing is wonderful and you don't owe anyone an explanation for what you do.

  32. Charlene,
    You are doing such an amazing and important job. Please realize you can't please everyone. You could give some people a pot of gold and they will complain about the color of the pot. How can you doubt yourself? I am so impressed with your operation I have talked my husband into coming with me to see your incredible farm this summer. God bless you and the work you do.
    Debbie...

  33. Carlene, you are incredible. All of your crew is incredible. Your dogs are so amazing they break my heart. Everything I've ever seen you do was suffused with knowledge and humor and, always, love.
    I watched all the way through Olive's whelping, and two things kept coming to mind.
    1. How are they still functioning? Just watching is kicking my butt.
    2. If I ever was going to give birth, I'd want to do it like this. Not the live-on-the-internet part, but the in a safe, comfortable place with a bunch of beautiful strong knowledgeable women around to help me and surrounded by so much love. That part.
    May the gods bless everything you do. You are so loved.

    And of course I agree with everyone above, that you mustn't let jerkwads on the internet get you down. :) Feel it, and then let is wash away.

  34. I want to thank you for letting me see something I've never seen before: puppies being born. It was completely amazing to me. I love being able to peek in on the various rooms throughout the day; it puts a smile on my face every time. I think you do amazing work, and it makes me sad that there are some jerks out there causing you such distress.

    Thank you for giving us a little window into this slice of life; thank you for all that you do.

  35. The hell with the other people. All their negative comments. They obviously are the type that never see the good, only the bad in things. I started watching when Noel had her pups. I watched most of Olive's. My sister in NC and I in NJ, we actually watch together, while we video chat on FB. We love what you all do at SDP, it is a wonderful thing. We have learned to ignore the negative comments and hopefully you do too! My Grandson who is 2 1/2 loves seeing the puppies :)
    Keep up the great work!! :)

  36. Shame on anyone who dares criticize you! I have been on the most enjoyable ride ever since I found you as Chaos was having her litter. I am in daily awe of all you do and accomplish and have promoted your site/farm/SDP to many, many of my friends. Ignore the haters - they will never be happy. Bless you and all you do.

    1. You can also do as we Southern Girls do and wave your hand around in the air as you roll your eyes and say "Bless their little hearts." Find a real Girl.Raised.In.The.South and ask her what *that* means lol :D

  37. I was glued to my Smartphone for 2 days, and right before I was about to go out with my son to celebrate his 21st b'day, a puppy emerged! I looked at him like "I'm not going!!" and of course I got the LOOK, like - "are you KIDDING ME???" So I went, and made Zander watch on my phone til we got there. We played pool and every time it wasn't my shot, I was on the phone. Finally, I'm yelling "It's another puppy!!!" and they all thought I was crazy but then THEY got into it. Yesterday Zander showed me HIS phone to show me how the puppies were doing. HA!!! You are amazing and dedicated and don't ever believe anyone who tries to tell you otherwise!!!!! <3
