MAY 4,2013

THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE YE OLDE HAPPY DAILY DOGGIE...

IT IS PURE BUSINESS-- SORRY....

I AM BULL PUCKIED.


FOR WANT OF A NAIL THE KINGDOM WAS LOST.

HERE IS THE WHOLE POEM----TO SAVE YOU GOOGLING IT

 
For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

 
WE HAD PROBLEMS YESTERDAY WHICH NEED A SERIOUS LOOK---

AND I REALIZE ---ANY AND ALL PROBLEMS ARE ULTIMATELY MINE TO SOLVE....

 THE MOST WORRISOME IS BAILEY DID NOT GET HER EVENING MEDS FOR 3 DAYS-

IT IS AN ANTIBIOTIC - AND WHAT SKIPPING MEDICINE DOES, IS TO ALLOW THE ANTIBIOTIC TO KILL OFF THE WEAKER GERMS WHICH THEN LETS THE STRONGER ONES FLURISH AND YOU HAVE A REAL MESS ON YOUR HANDS.

THE SYSTEM IS -- WE HAVE A MED CHART AND WHEN MEDS ARE GIVEN YOU INITIAL THE LITTLE BOX--
***************

FIRST PROBLEM--

THE EVENING BOXES WERE NOT CHECKED TO INDICATE HER MEDS WERE GIVEN...-

THE EVENING FEEDERS ?

THE MORNING FEEDER WHO WAS TOO DISTRACTED TO NOTICE AND EITHER FIX THE PROBLEM OR REPORT IT TO ME-

AND MY FAULT FOR NOT CHECKING ON EVERYONE ELSE?

 POOR BAILEY- I HOPE SHE IS OK..

**********

NEXT PROBLEM

KENNEL 5 INTHE DEAGLE HOUSE HAD 2 WATER BUCKETS FOR 2 DOGS.-- LUCKILY- BECAUSE ONE WAS BONE DRY-- NOT ONE DROP OF WATER IN IT. THIS IS 1 HOUR AFTER EVERY WATER BUCKET WAS SUPPOSED TO BE CLEAN AND FILLED.

LUCKILY BUD NOTICED IT-

I HAVE ASKED EVENING FEEDERS TO STAND IN FRONT OF EACH KENNEL AND SAY ALOUD---HEAT?? WATER?? --AND THEN COME AND TELL ME IT IS DONE. THAT IS 7 MINUTES FOR THE WHOLE PLACE.

ANYONE CAN FORGET TO WATER ONE DOG... BUT THE PERSON COMING ALONG BEFORE CLOSING TO STAND IN FRONT AND SAY HEAT/WATER WILL PICK UP THE FACT THAT THE WATER IS NOT PROPERLY REFRESHED..

THAT IS OBVIOUSLY NOT HAPPENING- THAT HAS GOT TO HAPPEN OR I NEED TO FIND SOMEONE WHO CAN DO THAT RESPONSIBELY

OR

LET ME REPHRASE THAT --- SERVICE DOG PROJECT IS NOT GOING TO PAY SOMEONE WHO CAN NOT FOLLOW THAT INSTRUCTION. IT IS TOO DANGEROUS--

ULTIMATELY I CAN NOT GO ROUND AND CHECK EVERYONE'S WORK-
IF THAT FALLS TO ME- WE ARE OUT OF BUSINESS QUICKLY.

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

NEXT PROBLEM

IT IS POINTLESS TO PUT OUT LOVELY CLEAN FLUFFIES ---IF RIGHT OUTSIDE THE DOOR IS A SLURRY OF LOOSE STOOL THAT ALL 10 PUPS HAVE TO WALK THRU BEFORE THEY GO IN TO THEIR BE IN BED IN THE NUTT HOUSE.

WHO'S FAULT? ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE WHO COMES AND ENJOYS THE PUPS AND NEVER THINKS ..

AND MAYBE MINE FOR NOT HAVING CARDBOARD AND BAGS RIGHT AT THE GATE TO THEIR PEN INSTEAD OF 10 FEET AWAY??

I TOOK A BUCKET AND BAG- AND RAN THRU THE ENTIRE NUTT HILL AND GOT 2 PAILFULLS OF STOOL -- PROBABLY 3 DAYS WORTH-

IT TOOK ME ABOUT 20 MINUTES TO DO THE WHOLE HILL.

IF THERE IS SOME EQUIPMENT PROBLEM OR SYSTEM THAT JUST DOES NOT WORK- THAT IS MY REAL JOB HERE.. NOT WALKING AROUND THE PASTURES PICKING POOP

I DON'T WANT TO SEE ANYONE HERE WITHOUT CARDBOARD AND A BAG IN THEIR BACK POCKET. IT TAKES 5 SECONDS TO BE PREPARED.

AND IF YOU ARE THAT MINDLESS TO ASSUME THERE WILL BE NO SH#T TO PICK- THEN WE REALLY CAN NOT COPE WITH YOU BEING AROUND HERE.

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

NEXT PROBLEM--

WAS REALLY ALL MINE...

I SPENT AN HOUR LOOKING FOR THE APPLICATION OF A PERSON COMING TODAY- BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW OR REMEMBER THAT

CP AFTER THEIR NAME WAS NOT CEREBRAL PALSY BUT CAMERA PERSON..

***********

THAT IS ENOUGH B#TCHING FOR TODAY

 MY POINT BEING- EACH ONE OF THESE PROBLEMS HAS HUGE REPERCUSSIONS- AND TAKES ON LY A FEW MINUTES--- OR SECONDS TO RESOLVE--

BECAUSE OF THAT--- I WILL BE WEARING A STOPWATCH AROUND MY NECK- AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTION - WE CAN TIME IT

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

? ALMOST ENOUGH OF TH E BELLYACHING

DO YOUR JOBS BECAUSE TO HAVE ME AROUND CHECKING --- IS A REAL PAIN IN THE NECK.

ONE STATISTIC WE CAN NOT GET AROUND...

THANKS TO MY STOPWATCH-------, TO STAND STILL AND FILL A WATER BUCKET TAKES 25 SECONDS-- JUST THE STANDING STILL PART...

SO IT IS A PERFECT JOB FOR NEW VOUNTEERS--

THE WHOLE PLACE IS NEARLY AN HOUR OF STANDING STILL. ----BUT THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HAVING THEM FILLED ALWAYS FALLS ON THE PERSON ON THE PAYROLL WHO DOES A FINAL CHECK.

 ***********************

TODAY


WE HAVE A CAMERA PERSON COMING--- UNLESS SHE IS AN APPLICANT WHO HAS CEREBRAL PALSY WHICH I DOUBT

AND WE HAVE SOMEONE COMING FROM NY.

PLUS A BUNCH WHO WANDER IN TO PLAY WITH PUPS-- AND I WILL PRESENT THEM WITH BAGS AND CARDBOARDS SO GET READY.

 AND ALL YOU PEOPLE ON THE CAMERAS-- IF YOU SEE SOMEONE WITHOUT CARDBOARD IN THEIR BACK POCKET LET ME KNOW...

AND--- I USUALLY CARRY THE ONES ON WHICH PEOPLE HAVE WRITTEN "THOUGHTS FOR THE SCOOPING"

 
LOVE IT !!!

  1. I always say- you can't fix what you don't know is broken.

    I think everyone should be on their toes now, and if not, they will be on their feet- headed out the door.
    I also hope Bailey is ok. That was sure an ugly injury.
    You are the Captain of the ship that is the SS SDP.

  2. No matter how many people you hire, the ultimate responsibility belongs to the boss. That never comes home so much as when something goes wrong.

    Fortunately you're on the ball and caught it this time. But what happens when you're out of town or sick in bed? I hope you laid down the law. You can't lose this project. Too many people need you and your wonderful dogs.

    God bless you, Carlene. I hope this doesn't happen again...but we all know it's liable to. You can't let your guard down. Checks and balances! We all need them.
