MAY 12, 2013


HOW BAD CAN LIFE BE WHEN YOUR DESK IS COVERED WITH GREAT LOLLYPOPS-- AND JARS OF GLUCOSIMINE.

WHAT ONE DOESN'T CURE THE OTHER WILL.

****************'

AS OPPOSED TO AN EMAIL WE HAD TODAY- WOULD REALLY GO IN THE HS ( HOLY SH#T) DEPARTMENT.

A WOMAN APPLYING- PROGRESSIVE MS-- HUSBAND VET AND POLICE--- RAISING 2 GRANDCHILDREN DUE TO DAUGHTERS DEATH--- WORKS FULL TIME EXCEPT FOR CHILDREN'S DR/DENTIST APTS-- RUNS THE ANIMAL RESCUE IN TOWN---HAS DANE AGING SERIOUSLY- DR ADVICE DON'T GET ANOTYHE DANE PUP, BUT ONE TRAINED TO TAKE THE PLACE OF HER DANE WHO HAS BEEN HELPING AND IS NOW UNDER VET CARE/VERY OLD...

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

AND I EVEN THOUGHT OF COMPLAINING WE WERE OUT OF MINI-MOOS?????.....

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

ON TO THE VOMIT PATROL REPORT

 BECKY WAS ASTOUNDED TO WITNESS THE SPECTACULAR PROJECTILE DIARRHEA- BENTLEY LET FIRE- LUCKILY OUTSIDE SHE SAID IT WENT ABOUT 3 FEET- NOTHING WENT DOWN- JUST HORIZONTAL.

 
I HAVE SEEN THAT BEFORE -----POOR DEAGLE-- NEEDED TO GET OUTSIDE AND I DIDN'T GET THERE FAST ENOUGH-- HE WAS CONFUSED SO HE TURNED A CIRLE WHILE SPRAYING-- IN WHAT IS NOW OUR OFFICE... IT EVEN HIT THE BACK OF THE FIREPLACE...

NEW MEANING TO "VERY POWERFUL DOGS".
************

 SO THE NIGHT'S SCORE

WINSTON 2 LIQUID POOS

LUNA VOMITED ONCE- BUT KEPT THE NEXT DRINK OF WATER DOWN 3 HOURS AND COUNTING.

OPAL HAS STARTED VOMIT 3 TIMES

PLUS BENTLEY'S EXPLOSION.


ACTIVE NIGHT..

.***********

I DID HEAR FROM GEORGE...

Positive for giardia and clostridium
Both could be responsible but more likely not
Salmonella, campylobacter are negative
You probably have something infectious but not shown in the testing

Should we treat for giardia...everyone ---and huge project to clean premises
CLEAN UP THE PREMISIS??? WHO WANTS TO SCRUB THE POND TODAY??????
Most kennels end up with it and many strain harmless similar story for clostridium
However a few years ago you had clostridium and we treated everyone with tylan and resolved a similar problem

I think that is the best thing to do
The ampicillin certainly could have been preventive
********************
- TREAT FOR GIARDIA AND GO TO TYLAN..SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA-- AND WE HAVE THE TYLAN
*****
KEY TO THIS DISCOVERY WAS THAT NEITHER BAILEY OR CHAOS HAVE ANY SIGNS- AND THEY HAVE BEEN ON AMPICILLIN BECAUSE OF THE FIGHT WOUNDS
****
THE REST OF THE TYLAN STORY--- WE HAVE SOME.. IT WAS AN ANTIBIOTIC DEVELOPED TO USE IN TURKEY'S WATER.
WHO OR HOW IT WAS DISCOVERED IT FIXED GREAT DANES I DO NOT KNOW.... BUT IT WORKED LAST TIME..
IT IS SOLD IN POWDERED FORM- AND WE HAVE THE EMPTY CAPSULES TO PUT IT IN-- BECAUSE IT IS THE MOST FOUL TASTING BITTER STUFF-
LAST TIME WE FILLED THE CAPSULES WE DID IT IN TH TV ROOM AND YOU COULD TASTE THE STUFF 10 FEET AWAY.
LUCKILY IT IS SUMMER- SO SOME LUCKY SOUL WILL GET THAT CHORE TODAY-- IN THE T TENT.
YOU START WITH A CAPSULE A DAY -- AND THEN GO TO A PINCH- LITERALLY-- FOR AT LEAST 30 DAYS.
***************
I AM ENCOURAGED. IT SHOULD SPEED UP THE PROCESS.
***********
MEANWHILE-- I THINK THESE CAMERA PEOPLE SHOJLD GET THEMSEL.VES ORGANIZED TO PROVIDE SATURDAY COVERAGE- AND SLEEP OVERNIGHT INTHE GUEST HOUSE,
YESTERDAY WENT VERY SMOOTHLY BECAUSE OF THE EXTRA CP HELP--ALONG WITH THE REGULARS, .... KAREN IS STAYING IN THE GUEST HOUSE-- AND THE PAIR OF PEOPLE ?DEB AND MIKE? FROM BUFFALO WHO ARE HERE TO COLLECT PANDORA FOR A THERAPY PROGRAM IN NEW YORK.
*** AND WE HAVE GONE HIGH CLASS--- NO MORE QUICK CHNESE TAKE OUT-- WE HAVE CONNECTED WITH SPINNELLIS WHO
SUPPLIES MOSTLY ITALIAN RESTAURANT TAKE OUT FOOD PLACES - SO WE HAD A FEAST..
**************
WE --- NO KATHY--- CAMERA OPERATOR? IN OMAHA--- MANAGED TO SWING THE PUPPY HILL CAMERA TO SEE THE PUPS IN THE V-PEN NEXT TO THE T TENT.... IT ALSO SHOWS THE CHICKENS IN THE PEN BEHIND THE PUPS....
EXPECIALLY AFTER WE MOVED SOME OF THE FENCE POSTS BACK TO A VERTICAL POSITION WITH THE TRACTOR.
IT WORKED-- NOT TOO BAD
BUT IT ALSO DEFINES A NO PARK ZONE NEAR THE LAUNDRY-- ANY GOLF CART PARKED THERE INTERFEARS WITHTHE CAMERA- WHICH IS DOWN BY THE BARN.
***********
TODAY???
MY GOAL MIGHT BE TO ASK KAREN TO EXPLAIN SOME OF THE NUMBERS AND THINGS ON THE COMMENT SECTION OF TEH EXPLORE.ORG ..
THEN THERE IS THIS DAILY DOGGIE- IT IS MINE... AND NOT REALLY CONNECTED TO THE EXPLORE PROJECT- KAREN HAS SUGGESTED IT BE SET UP SO THAT PEOPLE CAN CLICK ON AN AMAZON BUTTON ON THIS DD- AND ABOUT 5% OF WHATEVER THEY SPEND ON AMAZON WOUOLD BE CONTRIBUTED TO SDP.
I DON'T SEE HOW THAT WOULD UPSET ANYONE- OR ANY OTHER VERY CRITICAL OPERATIONS WE ALREADY HAVE GOING... LIKE THE SHATUPON SOCIETY...
I CAN NOT DO ANYTHING TO UPSET THAT -- WE ARE DEPENDENT... BUT IF THIS AMAZON DEAL CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE NUMBERS GAME -- THEN WE SHOULD TRY IT.
IT WOULD BE SIMPLE- TO GET THAT MONEY FOR SDP- YOU WOULD CLICK ON A BUTTON ON THE DAILY DOGGIE- THEN WE GET A PERCENT OF WHATEVER YOU ORDER...
WORTH A TRY.
***************
AND IT IS SUNDAY STEW DAY----- PLUS HAPPY MOTHERS DAY


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

  1. The Amazon idea is great. My library did that years ago and I had totally forgotten. It is not pushy at all and nothing could be more simple. Fantastic idea.

  2. Yes, please do the Amazon button. I buy nearly everything from Amazon including shampoo and salt! Would love to see SDP get a part of that.

  3. I spend ALOT on Amazon- I had a link before that donated to an Elementary School. easy peasy
    Let us know when it is set up- that could generate some much needed $$.
    Good luck with the dogs- hope things become SOLID soon.

  4. Amazon is wonderful! It sounds like Karen is talking about an affiliate link..or maybe it's different. I love Amazon and order a lot of things from them, including cat food & litter I. No sales tax (yet) and usually free shipping. If you had an Amazon button I would definitely click through from here. If all of the people here did that it would really add up :)

  5. Another thought is doing a Kindle book with the story of SDP and maybe some photographs of the dogs. If you price at $2.99 to $9.99 you get 70%. You can also take a Kindle book and make a paperback out of it on CreateSpace. The more pictures though, the higher you'd want to price it. Just a thought.

  6. I love to send SDP things from Amazon anyway so it's a WIN WIN Situation :) Can't Wait!

  7. What a wonderful idea if you can swing it! Amazon is my Mall...it's my drugstore, my cosmetic store, clothes, shoes, toilet paper, computers... everything. When Larry started getting everything thru them I realized it was so nice to have everything delivered ...curb service...and no standing in lines and loading up the car and then the part I hated...unloading the car, lugging it inside and then putting it away.

    So, I started ordering just about everything from Amazon, too. We almost never run out of stuff. Can you imagine how many Apple and Larry dollars the SDP could collect! Let us know when that comes to pass.

    Nubachai has a great idea. Do a Kindle book. Wow...we'd have a book, we can get a family tree. Damn...I feel like I'm being a part of history. It's lovely! I'd love to hear how Carlene got involved in training animals for show biz and them migrated to a project breeding and training dogs to become Service Dogs. Did she realize what she was getting herself in for?

    Inquiring minds want to know...and God knows the Camera Peeps are nothing if not "Inquiring". Right, Ladies??? And Gents???

    I know you have a mountain of work to do, Carlene, but you could just put aside a few minutes every day to talk into a microphone and record your memories of the Puppy Hill Saga. I'm longing to read it. On Kindle! I can't read a regular book because of my neck but I understand it's easy and inexpensive to publish a book on Amazon. I have a friend who did it. Who knew?

    I hope all the pups get all better. I"m sure the're not having any fun!

    Love ya, Carlene.
