MAY 11, 2013


A HEADLINE JUST FLASHED BY AS I SIGNED ON ABOUT A 105 YER OLD WOMAN WHO CREDITED HER AGE TO A CERTAIN BRAND OF FOOD- SO THE COMPANY JUST GAVE HER A "LIFETIME SUPPLY"

HOW MAGNANIMOUS

******************

I THINK MANY OF THESE DOGS ARE ON THE MEND--- I HAVE NOT SEEN BAXTER YET TODAY-- HE LOST ALOT OF WEIGHT BUT IS EATING NOW-- AT LEAST AS OF YESTERDAY - AND COLLEEN MAY TAKE HIM TOMORROW-- SO HE WILL GET SPECIAL SERVICE...

MIND YOU THEY ARE ACTING BETTER -- BUT STILL HAVE MANY OIF THE SYMPTOMS

THE PIMS ARE STILL THROWING UP--- BUT THE ONES IN THE HOUSE MAY BE PAST THAT.

 BRING ON THE BOILED RICE AND PEPCID AC...

****

I DID NOT GET ANY RESULTS FROM THE EXTENSIVE STOOL REPORT YET.. ?GEORGE??. IT MIGHT TAKE A FEW DAYS...

***
A CAMERA PERSON WAS TO ARRIVE LAST NIGHT SOMETIME BETWEEN 12 AND 4 AM-- HER FLIGHT WAS DELAYED... SHE SAID SHE KNEW THE LAYOUT OF THE PROPERTY SO I TOLD HER ABOUT THE ELECTRIC GATE - AND HOPE SHE LANDED CORRECTLY AND NOT IN THE NEIGHBORS WOOD SHED.

***

THAT'S WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE CAMERA PEOPLE- THEY ARE VERY SELF SUFFICIENT.

*******

NOW AS FOR " THE DOGGIE BAG".. THE "STORE " OFF OUR WEB...

JULIET GOT ALL THE COSTCO DETAILS STRAIGHT WITH A GREAT DEAL OF EFFORT- WE HAVE ORDERED A FEW SAMPLE " FAMILY TREES"

IT IS TRUELY A THING OF BEAUTY- AND EXTREMELY ACCURATE.
****
AXEL ( VET) HAS BEEN DRAFTED TO MANAGE THE STORE AND MAILING ETC..- WE ARE WORKING ON PRICES AND COST OF MAILING ETC-

WE NEED A GOAL.. LETS SAY BEFORE JUNE 1ST WE SHOULD HAVE ALL THE STUFF LISTED AND IT WILL BE ONLY THE MORE UNUSUAL THINGS FOR SALE... PUPPY BREATH--, MONKEY FISTS,-- POSTERS OF THIS " SDP FAMILY TREE"-- PUZZLES... .... NOT COFFEE MUGS AND TEE SHIRTS.

********************

MAJOR PROJECT- I CAN HOPEFULL ATTACK THIS WEEKEND...

 
I REALLY DO NOT LIKE THE LOOKS OF THE BOTTOM OF PUPPY HILL. IT IS A TIRED LOOKING SAND PIT.

I AM WONDERING ... IF I SPREAD TOPSOIL-- AKA 3 YEAR OLD HORSE MANURE--- THEN SEED AND COVER IT WITH A GOOD LAYER OF STRAW- RIGHT AFTER THE ONCOMING RAIN---- WOULD THAT GET THE GRASS STARTED BEFORE THE PUPS FLATTENED IT?

THE FLAT FIELD IS READY TO BE SEEDED- I AM ASSUMING IT IS A BIG ENOUGH AREA THAT THEY WON'T GET TO DIGGING THE SEEDED SPOTS...

***

AND THEN IT BRINGS ON THE WIERD IDEAS.. THE CHICKENS ARE FREE ROAMING BUT EVEN THAT BIG YARD IS NOW DEVOID OF GREEN- THEY ATE EVERYTHING...

I HAVE SEEN-- IN FANCY CHICKEN HOUSES A FRAME OF 2 X 4'S WITH A SCREEN OF HARDWARE CLOTH 1/2 X 1/2 WIRE AND GRASS SEEDED UNDER IT SO THEY CAN ONLY EAT THE GRASS WITHOUT DIGGING UP THE ROOTS.

I WOULD LIKE TO TRY THAT

*****

AND THEN THE IGLOOS HAVE BOTH DIED- IT WAS KIND OF FUN TO HAVE THOSE SEMI SHELTERS ON THE PUPPY HILL- SO I STARTED LOOKING THEM UP- AND EVEN WENT TO THE VEAL CALF HUTCHES ( BIGGER IGLOOS) . AND THEN I THOUGHT I REALLY SHOULDTRY AND STAY WITHIN THE INDIAN THEME AND BUILD THEM A TIPI OF THEIR OWN.. WE HAVE EXTRA POLES..

CERTAINLY A SMALLER TIP[I WOULD DO FOR THEM-- 8' THE CHILD SIZE

I AM TRYING TO GATHER ALL THE LONG POLES TO PUT UP OUR USUAL TIPI OF EITHER 18 OR 20 ' DEPENDING ON THE COLLECTION OF POLES-- THEY ARE IN THE ARENA AND NEED TO BE DUG OUT..

GOOD VOLUNTEER PROJECT... DIG THEM OUT AND MEASURE THEM

WE NEED ABOUT 24' LONG POLES 17 OF THEM-- AND I THINK WE HAVE THEM.. JUST NEED TO BE FOUND.

 
YOU WOULD THINK 24' LONG THINGS COULD NOT BE HIDDEN ON THIS FARM... BUT THEY CAN.

AND A TIPI FOR THE DOGS WILL BE FUN- TIL THEY EAT IT.

WORTH A TRY,

***************

I WATCH THE APPROACHING GREE BLOB ON THE WEATHER CHANNEL WITH GREAT ANTICIPATION- WE NEED THE RAIN BIG TIME. I HAD TO DIG A HOLE TO BURY A COUPLE CARTONS OF BEEF THAT WENT BAD WHEN THE FRIDGE STOPPED- AND DOWN 4 FEET IT WAS STILL JUST DUST.,


WITH GREAT ANTICIPATION OF A GOOD RAINFALL, I WILL PUT THE BUCKET UNDER THE LEAK INTHE ROOF .

I ONLY HAVE TO DO THAT WHEN IT RAINS.


I AM NOT YELLING-
- I CAN NOT SEE the small print

  1. If you want grass to sprout quickly, put peat moss over it, not straw. I had grass in less than 4 days sprouting on my lawn by using peat moss.

  2. That certain "magnanimous" company also gave the woman a ride in their Weinermobile. More free publicity.
