March 23, 2013

GREAT NEWS-- THE FINAL PAPERS HAVE COME FROM THE ANNENBERG FOUNDATION-- WHICH I WILLSIGN AND  FEDEX BACK ON MONDAY
 
LET ME DEFINE EXACTLY WHAT THIS IS... 
   THEY HAVE GIVEN US THIS MONEY TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF  TRAINED DOGS  WITH PREFERENCE GIVEN TO VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES.
 
LET ME REPEAT..."TO INCREASE THE NUMBER...."   TO MAKE THAT WORK... THAT MEANS  WE AS AS GROUP WILL STILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ABOUT THE SAME BUNCH WE ALREADY HAVE...
 
SO IT IS NOT AN INVITATION  TO LET UP ON  THE CHICKEN SH#T BOARD.. AND OTHER DONATIONS....  WE ARE DEPENDENT ON THAT  AND THAT DEPENDENCY WILL  NOT CHANGE.
. IT   BOILS DOWN TO MORE PUPPIES AND MORE HELP.
 
I BET YOU ARE ALL  HEARTBROKEN AT HAVING TO HAVE A MORE CONSISTENT SUPPLY OF PUPPIES....  BENTLEY AND WALTER WIIL BE THRILLED..
 
IN PREP FOR THE ARRIVAL OF THAT GRANT WE HAVE STARTED INCREASING OUR HELP/
 
THE ROSTER???
MEGAN HAS HER HANDS FULL  AS TRAINER...-(- AND SO SHOULD SHE)...
  WE HAVE ADDED SOME KENNEL MANAGEMENT IN TRACY AND PAULA-  HOPEFULLY COLLEEN 1 WILL GIVE US ALL THE TIME SHE CAN -- WE HOPE JESS WILL NOT BE TUGGING BOATS- AND HAVE TIME FOR NEARLY  A FULL TIME PUPPY PATTER,
 
 THERESA  HAS HER HANDS FULL MANAGING MOSTLY APPLICANTS AND  THE CALENDAR TYPE STUFF. 
 
AND MARIA WILL FLOAT BETWEEN KENNEL,TRAINING ,PAPERWORK AND FILM  PRODUCTION.
*************
SO WE ARE SET TO HAVE MORE PUPPIES-- WOOOWOOOWOOOOWO
 
LAST YEAR WE DONATED 13--SO THAT MAKES OUR GOAL ABOUT  24 PER YEAR...--2 PER  MONTH...
THE PLAN ---CURENTLY.--- CAN CHANGE.....
... PANDORA OLIVER  DUSTON HARRY  WITH PATRICK AND HIS PINK WATER BUCKET BECOMEING A THERAPY DOG WITH SOME VOLUNTEERS..
THEN NEXT-- LOLA EBONY MIA ROXANNE WILLOW  WITH PERRY HELD OUT WITH QUESTIONS ON LOLA'S POSSIBLE GENETIC HAIR COLOR  (SEE BLUE DOBERMAN GENE)
THEN THE   7 CHUPPIES  WITH OSCAR NOT NEUTERED  AND KEPT WORKING  THERAPY 
AND  7 MUPPIES WITH PETER KEPT ENTIRE ( NOT NEUTERED)
3 NUPPIES -MARIAH AS BREED/THERAPY PAIRED  WITH OSCAR.  THEN  THE 2 M'S BOTH "FACILITY DOGS" -- WORKING LOCALLY  AS  COMPANION PTSD  WITH  MURPHY NOT NEUTERED... AT LEAST YET 
AND 8 OF THE PIMENTOS   THE 2 HARLS WOULD BE GOOD FACILITY DOGS IF THEIR PERSONALITIES DEVELOPE AS PLANNED. 
 
4+5+7+7+2+8=  33
 
THAT IS IF YOU COULNT THE YEAR STARTING APRIL 1ST-- OTHERWISE   THE COUNT IS MORE LIKE 16   FOR THE REST OF  2013 AND 17 POSSIBLES SO FAR FOR 2014( NOT ENOUGH)
 
THAT MAKES FOR A WILD BIG  PUPPY SUMMER  AND MORE BABIES BEFORE FALL?
NOW THE PROBLEM  IS  WHEN DO THEY COME IN HEAT? -- USUALLY EVERY 6 MONTHS??? 
 OUR POSSIBLE   4 GIRLS  ARE MERLOW ( LYN HAS HER) SCARLOT( BETSY HAS HER) AND OPAL ( I HAVE HER) CHAOS ( YEAR OR TWO OFF DEPENDING)-- OLIVE GETTING SPAYED. 
AND THE 3 BOYS  ---BENTLEY (ME)  WALTER ( MEGAN) AND YELLOW (DENISE IN IPSWICH) WITH PETER AND OSCAR  BOTH  TOO YOUNG--- IN BOXFORD
 
SO AS RANDOM AS IT SOUNDS   IT WORKS OUT... 
 
THAT IS WHAT IT IS TODAY...  COULD CHANGE ANY TIME.
******************* 
 
NOW ALONG THOSE LINES......SEVERAL CAMERA PEOPLE HAVE SAID THEY WANT TO SEE MORE TRAINING-- AND THAT IS IN TH ECARDS-- LITERALLY  THOSE MEMORY CARDS-- I AM STRUGGLING TO MASTER BOTH CAMERAS-- THE BLACK CANNON OF EXPLORE  AND THE GO PRO ONE OF THE CAMERA PEOPLE GAVE ME.
 
MARIA'S HUSBAND  BOB PUT TOGETHER THT SUNSHINE VIDEO WHICH IS AROUND SOMEWHERE- PEOPLE LOVED IT.
 
MY GOAL IS TO DO ONE OF THOSE A WEEK SO THAT EXPLORE CAN HAVE THEM AS A ;LIBRARY FOR PEOPLE TO WATCH INSTEAD OF THE BLANK - OFF HOUR SCREEN OF PUPPY HILL.
 
THAT IS THE GOAL.
 
SO I AM BACK TO THE BLACK CAMERA HAS 14 HOLES OR BUTTONS AND A BOOK /2 INCH THICK.
THE GO PRO HAS 2 BUTTONS AND A 4X4  1/8" THICK LITTLE FOLDED PAGE THING
 
THESE ARE 2 ENDS OF THE BELL SHAPED CURVE.
 
THE BLACK CAMERA IS SIMPLER WITH IT'S ONE BUTTON DOES ONE FUNCTION
WHILE WITHTHE GOPRO IT IS DIFFERENT SEQUENCES OF THE 2 BUTTONS TO DO ABOUT THE SAME THING.
 
NEITHER OF WHICH IS EASY TO UNDERSTAND.
 
IT TOOK ME A WHOLE DAY TO  FIGURE OUT THE BLACK CAMERA WITH IT'S INTERNAL MEMORY AND  2 HOLES FOR MEMORY CARDS, ONLY RECORDS ON SLOT "B"    CARD
 
SLOT "A" IS TO COPY FILMS FROM A TO B  AND FROM  IF YOU TELL THE CAMERA TO COPY FROM INTERNAL TO A.... YOU GET A BLANK A--- I SENT THAT TO BOB ALREADY.  EMPTY...
 
THIS IS THE CRITICAL BIT OF LEARNING FOR THE DAY. 
 
WE HAVE 2 ANNOUNCEMENT S
 
OMAHA STEAKS WILL SEND A PACKAGE ?TODAY AND IF SO CAMERA MARK WILL GRILL TOMORROW...
 
SOMEONE---JACKIE---IS ARIVING FROM MID AMERICA (?CHICAGO AREA)  SHE IS COMING TO GET POSSIBLE IDEAS- FOR  A WEEK OR SO.
 
AND THAT BIG COIN JUG I WAS ABOUT TO EMPTY TO MAKE THE PAYROLL CAN REMAIN A COIN JUG- THANKS TO EXPLORE
 
BUT DON'T ANYONE LET UP-- WE ARE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS--- THE WOODS JUST GOT DEEPER.

  1. MY SISTER IN LAW, USED TO WORK FOR THE ANNENBERG FOUNDATION. SHE WAS IN CHARGE OF PRINTING ALL THE CHECKS THAT GO TO THE DIFFERENT CHARITIES THAT THEY FUND. SOME WHOPPERS THERE. BUT SHE SAID THAT FOUNDATION REALLY SUPPORTS THINGS THAT ARE ABOUT MAKING LIVES BETTER AND THE MILITARY FAMILIES.

    KEEP ON KEEPING ON, AND WE WILL FOLLOW YOU OH CAPTAIN.

  2. I'm curious why you would have Olive spayed. I am a small dog person myself but if I were to have a large dog, I have really liked learning about Great Danes and I would want one with similar coloring and markings as Olive. Plus, she seemed like a good mother to those 10 puppies. I'm sure you have your reasons but I am curious what they are.
