JUNE 17, 2013
HARD TO BELIEVE- BENJAMIN BUCKWHEAT'S VERY LOUD BRAY WAS SOMEWHAT RESTRICTED YESTERDAY-- IF YOU LOOK T MARK'S PHOTO'S WHEN HE IS BRAYING THE HALTER NOSEPIECE IS TIGHT-- TODAY I WILL SLIP THAT DOWN A HOLE OR TWO AND I BET HE IS EVEN LOUDER...

THIS WILL BE A SHORT DOGGIE.

THE 6'3 GUY SHOULD BE COMING TO START WITH OLIVER..

THERE IS A COMPANY WHO HAS THIER EMPLOYEES SPEND A DAY VOLUNTEERING AT A CHARITY-- AND THEY WILL BE HERE WED... SO I HAVE SUPPLIES TO GET READY.. AND BE PREPARED FOR BOTH RAINY DAY AND SUNNY DAY JOBS ( GET A HUGE DUMPSTER)

SHELIA AND I HAVE TO CONCLUDE THE ARGUEMENT ON HOW TO KEEP THE DEAGLE HOUSE FROM SLIDING DOWN THE HILL.
AND THEN DO SOMETHING ( SHELIA IS SDP'S IDEA PERSON.)

MUST START LEASHS WITH THE PIMENTOS..
*************
I BELIEVE WNSTON IS GOING TO LIVE WITH DEBBIE ( DETAILS YET TO BE DETERMINED) HE IS THE HEALTHIEST DOG WITH A BROKEN VERTABRAE THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN--AND I WANT TO GET HIM OUT OF HERE BEFORE ANOTHER DOG BREAKS MORE OR WHATEVER... HE PLAYS ROUGHLY.
***********
MERLOW IS ARRIVING AT 7:30 AND I HAVE FORGOTTEN JUST WHO IS HER FRIEND AND WHO IS NOT...GOT TO FIGURE THAT OUT AND SHIFT DOGS ACCORDINGLY.. SHE WILL HAVE TV ROOM PRIVILIDGES..
***********
XXXX LOST HER JOB SOMEWHERE AND IS HEADED HERE -- SAID SHE HAS A 2 DAY DRIVE TO GET HERE...

FATE IS THE HUNTER.... SHE IS DUE HERE ABOUT THE DAY TRACY IS LEAVING FOR VACATION-- I DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHO SHE IS.. EXCEPT SHE IS A CAMERA PERSON.

MINE IS NOT TO QUESTION WHY.....

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

THE ONLY SEMI SERIOUS DISCUSSION IS ABOUT THE CANE/WALKER/CRUTCH BIT...

 I TAKE THAT BACK... THIS IS SERIOUS...


WE HAD SOMEONE HERE YESTERDAY 2 CRUTCHES AND A HUGE HUSBAND- WITH DIFFICULTY I PURSUADED THE HUSBAND TO OFFER HIS BACK POCKET TO HIS WIFE -- INSTEAD OF THE CRUTCHES AND SHE QUICKLY SAID WHAT A JOY TO STAND UP AND WALK IN A NEARLY NORMAL FASHION..

ALONG WITH LOLA'S OWNER-- NO CANE.. JUST LOLA- AND WHEN LOLA IS NOT AVAILABLE SHE HANGS ON TO HER PARTNERS BACKSIDE POCKET

ALONG WITH SOME CAMERA PEOPLE WHO MET THE 2 LAWYERS IN VA WHO ARE TO BE HERE TODAY TO START WITH OLIVER...

THEY APPARENTLY ARE PRACTICING MY BACK POCKET ROUTINE AND HE SAID HE IS MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE STANDING UP STRAIGHT.

I AM BEGINNING TO SOUND LIKE I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT-- DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU... I DON'T.

BUT--- WITH ALL WALKERS AND CANES THERE IS A CENTER OF GRAVITY PROBLEM WHERE IN ANTICIP[ATION OF GOING OVER BACKWARDS- THEY OVERCORRECT AND BEND FORWARD WITH THE WALKER..

THE CARLENE METHOD- AT LEAST FOR SHORT RUNS INTO RESTAURANTS ETC-- IS TO LEAVE THE WALKER IN THE CARR AND HANG ONTO SOMEONE'S BELT-OR POCKET.

BECKY-- SITTING BEHIND ME-- AN RN-- WELL VERSED IN BOTH GENERIC MEDICAL AND CRUTCHES ETC BECAUSE HER DAUGTER JADE HAS USED ALL SORTS OF APPARATIS WITH HER FREDERICKS ATAXIA....BECKY HAS NEVER HEARD OF THIS "CARLENE'S BACKSIDE METHOD" .

ALOT OF PEOPLE COME IN PAIRS-- SO THERE ARE MANY TIMES WHEN THE BACKSIDE METHOD IS ALOT MORE CONVENIENT ALONG WITH BEING BETTER EXERCISE WITH STANDING UP STRAIGHT.

I STARTED THIS BECAUSE IT APROXIMATES THE HANDLE ON A DOG'S HARNESS.. --

IT CERTAINLY IS OUT OF THE BOX THINKING.AND IT IS CHEAP-

I THINK I AM READY FOR SOME REAL PUBLICITY AND SCIENTIFIC TESTING OF MY BACKSIDE METHOD.

AND I NEED A CAMERA PERSON TO COLLECT THE DATA.. CLOUD??? CAN YOU STAND MORE WORK?

AND NO ONE HAS LOST THIER PANTS... YET

  1. CARLENE I WORKED WITH HANDICAPPED CHILDREN WHEN I WAS 17 YRS OLD - OVERNIGHT CAMP, AND WE USED THE SAME METHOD WHEN WE HAD WALKERS AND WERE BRINGING THE KIDS TO THE SWIMMING HOLE. AFTER MY MOTHERS SURGERY (KIDNEYS) SAME THING. I WALKED HER AROUND THE HOUSE THAT WAY UNTIL SHE FELT COMFORTABLE WALKING ALONE

  2. This weekend Dan and I started the backside method. I am a HORRIBLE service dog. I kept forgetting and would walk off without him. And I am bad at pacing myself. He did great! I just need more work. Maybe I need the wiffle bat treatment. :)
