GOOD WAY TO START THE DAY-- AND WHY WE GO THRU ALL THIS...
FROM MICHELLE AND PINKL IN VERMONT....
The haters are welcome to call ME. Were it not for you and all of the wonderful, talented, and giving people surrounding you, I would be spending my days staring at the walls of my house polishing up my walker.
Instead I am out everyday with my amazing service dog Pink helping others. Last week I easily walked through ice and snow, my dog supporting me, to get to someone's door. Let 's see a walker do that.
Enough said.
ACTUALLY---- EXPLORE.ORG WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A SHORT BLURB ?2 SHORT PARAGAPHS ON A BUNCH OF OUR DOGS..
I KNOW SEVERAL OF YOU HAVE DOEN THIS BEFORE-- BUT I DON'T HAVE TIME TO GO BACK THRU THE EMAILS AND FIND THEM--JUST A SHORT FUN STORY KIND OF THING..
I AM SUPPOSED TO DO THAT TODAY-- AND I NEED TO PLAY WITH PUPS-- SO IT WOULD BE QUICKER FOR ALL YOU RECIPIENTS TO DO THAT FOR ME..
LIKE VALERIE'S "I SWAPPED MY CANE FOR A DANE" STORY.
**************
AND THEN THERE IS THE GOPRO PROJECT... WE GOT IT ALL LINED UP-- ON BAILEY'S BACK AND WENT TO WALMART. BAILEY WAS PERFECT- I COULD CONTROL HER OFF LEASH SO THE COLLAR WIAS NOT IN THE WAY... BUT TH E%#$^%&*&()*& CAMERA DIED.. ONE LEGGED JESS SAID SHE POULD FIX TI.. (knee surgery) go right at it... i am ready to do great things..
WE HAVE A CAMERA WOBBLE THAT WE NEED TO ADDRESS.. I GOT DIZZY WATCHING THE TAPE...-- BAILEY WILL PUT UP WITH MOST ANYTHING... NEEDS WORK-- A HANGING CONTRAPTION???
*************
and ---125,000 PEOPLE WATCHED OLIVE GIVE BIRTH-- ( AND---- ACCORDING TO SOMEONE AT COSTCO, THEY WATCHED ME FALL ASLEEP IN THE CHAIR NEXT TO HER)
***********************
OTHER BIG PROJECT IS TO TAKE TH E CHUPPIES DOWN TO GOERGE AND HAVE HIM WAVE HIS HAND OER THEM... I DON'T GO THRU ALL THE TESTING HE COULD DO... ... I USED TO DO THAT -- AND GOT TOO MANY NORMALS..... WHEN YOUR PUPS ARE STANDING ON TH E 4' FENCE IN PREP FOR LEAPING OVER IT. XRAYING THE HIPS SEEMS AN ODD WAY TO SPEND $500.. ONE XRAY WHICH WAS DONE AT ANGEL AFTER ONE OF MY DOGS GOT HURT, THE VET THERE SAID THE HIPS WERE "CAVERNOUS" - NEVER SEEN BETTER ON A DANE.. WE WATCH THEM.
***********
AND THEN
TIME FOR THE CHUPPIES TO GET THE LEAD OUT AND START THINKING OF BEHAVING..-- WITH ALL THESE GREAT VOLUNTEERS HERE I REALLY NEED EACH CHUPPIE IN THE HOUSE FOR ABOUT 1/2 HOUR EVERY DAY TO HAVE A LOOK AND SEE IF WE HAVE ANY BREEDING OR FABULOUS FAILURES IN THE GROUP.. SO FAR THEY ALL LOOK ABOUT THE SAME..
I WONDER.........
I HAVE AN UNFINISHED GOAL-- ON MY BUCKET LIST...I WONDER IF I CAN FIND THE PHOTO
THIS WAS MY FIRST BUNCH OF 8 DANES-- GREAT PICTURE-- BUT I COULD NOT STEER THEM- AND THEY WERE NOT ALL HARLEQUINS- IT WAS A GOOD START - BUT I WOULD LOVE TO TRY THAT AGAIN...
HMMMMMM ?8 HARL SERVICE DOG HITCH??? EVEN IF THEY HAD TO RU N AFTER A GOLF CART BECAUSE I COULDNT STEER THEM?????

  1. I hope this isn't the wrong time/place to ask this, but I was wondering how you place your fabulous failures?

    Just being nosy! Thanks!

  2. I had my go-pro mounted on a tee shirt that I put on my
    Shar-Pei. It was up around her shoulders and yes there was lots & lots of wobble. She was running though so maybe it would be less for Bailey. If I figure out another way I'll let you know.

  3. I think on YouTube I saw a chest strap that might work. The parachutes use them when jumping out of a perfectly good air plane. I think a Danes chest would be do able.

  4. I can never get the photos in Doggie Daily to show up. I just get the box with a red "x". Does anybody else have this problem? If so, is there a fix? I use Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Can't figure out what to do.

  5. I can't get the image either and have tried dozen of good tricks. It looks like it might be some kind of conflict with my system or server (Mozilla) and Comcast.

  6. Can ANYONE see the photos? Because when you look at the source code for the page it looks like she's adding the pictures directly from an e-mail, which would mean no one can see them and that nothing can be done from our end. The pics need to be added from somewhere "public" like Shutterfly or Photobucket (or uploaded to Blogspot if that's supported). So I don't think it's anything wrong with your computers.
