JUNE 3, 2013
TOPIC OF THE DAY-- DOG BITES - A LONG TIME AGO I WAS OF THE OPINION THAT ALL DOG TOOTH/HUMAN CONNECTION WAS WRONG ON THE DOG'S PART --- THIS IS THE OPINION HELD BY ALL INSURANCE COMPANIES. I HAVE TEMPERED THAT OPINION.

NOW I HAVE A HOLE IN MY LEG- CAUSED BY 2 JOYFUL PUPS WHO WERE PLAYING AND JUST HAPPENED TO CATCH A TOOTH IN THE CALF OF MY RIGHT LEG.-

BEING ANCIENT, MY SKIN IS PAPER THIN- SO THE TEAR IS SIGNIFICANT. NOW IF I WENT TO THE ER TO GET IT SEWN, THEY WOULD NEED THE DOG'S NAME, RABIES NUMBER --BREED- AND THINGS LIKE THAT--- WHICH IN SOME CASES WOULD BE LOGICAL;- BUT IF I GO AND SAY A DANE CAUSED IT--- THE INS CO WOULD ONLY HAVE ONE CATAGORIE-- BAD DOG-- GREAT DANE-

AND AS A DANE OWNER, MY INSURANCE WOULD GO UP[....

WHEN THERE SHOULD BE ANOTHER CATAGORY "STUPID PERSON"
******
CLOSELY RELATED TO THAT MUST BE THE STORY OF TIFFANY- ONE OF MY SUPER DOGS FROM LONG AGO. WITHOUT FEAR OF CORRECTION 100,000 PEOPLE PATTED HER- SHE WAS A STANDARD "BED DOG" WHERE WE WOULD TAKE THT FOOL BED ON A WAGON... TO THINGS LIKE HARBORFEST ON BOSTON CITY HALL PLAZA AND/OR THE TOPSFIELD FAIR.... AND SHE WOULD BE TOTALLY LOOSE-- WORKING THE CROWD-- GETTING UUP ON THE BED ON OCCASION..

WE WERE DOING JUST THAT AT THE PRU TOWER FAMILY DAY AND SHE CAME TO ME GROWLING AND LOOKING TOWARD A VERY NICE LITTLE GIRL ABOUT 12 YEARS OLD---- WITH DIFFICULTY I HELD HER BY THE JOWLS SO THE KIDDO COULD PAT HER

THE CHILD WANDERED ON AND TIF WENT BACK TO WORKING THE CROWD FOR ANOTHER YEAR..-- NOT A CARE IN THE WORLD WORKING PERFECTLY--- NEXT YEAR AT THE PRU.. SAME CHILD-- SAME REACTION. SHE WOULD HAVE CHASED HER AWAY -- PROBABLY NIPPING HER IN THE PROCESS. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS-- BUT THERE WAS ONE.

SO I DO NOT CARE WHO YOU ARE--OR WHAT YOUR DOG USUALLY DOES... WHEN YOU ARE IN PUBLIC-- HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP CLOSE WATCH ON YOUR DOG'S HEAD AND TRY AND FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY ARE THINKING.

HOPEFULLY AS A SERVICE DOG THEY WOULD ASK YOUR PERMISSION BEFORE TAKING ACTION ON THEIR OWN... BUT YOU CAN NOT BLINDLY IGNORE WHAT THEY ARE THNKING..

SMALL EXAMPLE YESTERDAY I DO NOT KNOW WHY OLIVER AND SAMMY TOOK ISSUE--SITTING AROUND IN THE T TENT I SUDDENLY NOTICED NEITHER DOG WAS MOVING-- STANDING STILL STARING AT EACH OTHER IN PRE-BATTLE MODE... ALL IT TOOK WAS A "KNOCK IT OFF" COMMAND AND THEY BROKE UP THE STARING CONTEST... BUT IF WE HAD NOT TOLD THEM-- THEY COULD HAVE TAKEN THE BATTLE TO NEW HEIGHTS.

WATCH YOUR DOGS--- AND IF THEY APPEAR TO BE CONFUSED ABOUT WHAT TO DO... GIVE THEM A COMMAND THEY UNDERSTAND. LIKE "LEAVE IT."

YOU ALL KNOW BAILEY-- LOVELY RELIABLE DOG..-- YET FOR WHATEVER REASON SHE DOES NOT LIKE GEORGE- I HAVE NO PROBLEM HOLDING HER SO GEORGE CAN EXAMINE WHATEVER HE NEEDS, BUT I WOULD NOT LEAVE HER IN A ROOM WITH HIM AND EXPECT HIM TO EXAMINE HER-- I AM SURE HE WOULD BE SOUNDLY BITTEN. ---- IT IS NOT THE VET HOSPITAL, SHE CAN PICK HIM OUT OF A CROWD HERE AT THE HOUSE.

 YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO YOUR DOG--JUST A GLANCE ONCE AND A WHILE TO KEEP TRACK OF THEIR THOUGHTS.. SOMETIMES THEY NEED HELP UNDERSTANDING THE RULES. WHEN GEORGE IS AROUND, ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS "BAILEY DO NOT BITE GEORGE" AND SHE WILL BACK AWAY... BUT I HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION..

THAT IS A RANDOM COLLECTION OF CONCEPTS. I GUESS THE MOST IMPORTANT IS THE GENERAL PUBLIC IS DANGEROUS.

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

TIPI'S WE RESURECTED THE OLD TIPI TO GIVE THE DOGS SHADE-- AND IT WORKED AT LEAST SO FAR...

 WE CUT OFF THE BOTTOM FRAYED EDGE WHICH MEANS WE NO LONGER CNA TIE ID DOWN BUT IF IT BLOWS AWAY WE CN JUST PUT IT BACK... IT IS GREAT SHADE OVER A COUPLE BEDS AND A KIDDIE POOL.

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

MARK'S GRILLING WAS -- AGAIN -- SUPER

SANTA EVEN SHOWED UP--
*************
DAVID'S WIFE AN D KIDS ARRIVED -- AND THEN LEFT- ALL PILING IN TH E CAR WITH DUSTIN 5 KIDS AND 2 ADULTS-- LOOKED GOOD TO ME.

HE IS TO WORK DOG AND COME BACK WITHIN A WEEK-- CONNECTING WITH STEVE AND CHARLIE-- OR BUD 2-- WE HAVE A FEW OUT THERE ( WESTERN MASS)

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

JANINE IS COMPLILING STUFF FOR A HISTORY OF SDP- E-BOOK AND MANY OF THE ANIMAL EPISODE STORIES ARE A RIOT-- BUT THEN YOU GET TO SDP AND THERE ARE NOT AS MANY JUST POLAN FUNNY STORIES-

IF ANY OF YOU CAN GO THRU THE OLD DD AND FIND ANYTHNG PERTAINING TO SERVICE DOGS THAT IS FUNNY, PLEASE LET JME KNOW-- PROBLEM IS WE HAVE A SERIOUS MISSION NOW-- AS ANIMAL EPISODES WE WERE JUST T RYING TO PUT KIDS THRU COLLEGE.

  1. I was thinking George could do the leg sewing, he would "get it" about the dogs playing etc. but the other person in this house said it would probably get him into trouble, lose his license or something.
