JUNE 4, 2013
EARLENE AND I HAVE SPENT HOURS GOING OVER THE APPLICATION FILE- TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHO IS REALLY A VIABLE CANDIDATE- AND HOW WE COULD BE MORE SPECIFIC IN DEFINING WHO SHOULD APPLY. PROBLEM IS PEOPLE ARE GETTING OUR INFO FROM THE WEB SEARCH AND NOT FROM THE ADI LIST... THAT LIST SAYS EAST COAST.

ARE WE CAPABLE OF DONATING A DOG TO A RECIPIENT IN CALIF OR AZ OR WI? AND IF NOT HOW DO WE GET THAT MESSAGE ACROSS SO PEOPLE DON'T SEND APPLICATIONS. WE REALLY DON'T HAVE THE FINANCES TO DEAL WITH THE NECESSARY HOME INSPECTIONS AND ANY TRAINING ISSUES WHICH ARE REQUIRED..

. PLUS WE REALLY NEED A FACE TO FACE INTERVIEW TO TRY AND SEE IF WE CAN DEAL IN THE FIRST PLACE.

THAT PROBLEM IS UNRESOLVED AT THE MOMENT...

***********

WE HAVE EXPERIMENTED OF LATE WITH HAVING SOMEONE PUPPY RAISE. WHEN WE GET TO A POINT OF A WELL BEHAVED PUP OF ABOUT 6 MONTHS-- AND ALL THEY NEED IS MILES OF "DOIN THE ONE STEP CRAWL" THAT HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN CASES WHERE THEY COME BACK AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK- AND STAY ACTIVE-- IT HAS BEEN A DISASTER IN ONE CASE WHERE WE BECAME A PLACE TO PARK THE PUP THEN DISAPPEAR FOR WEEKS AT A TIME.

I AM ABOUT TO EXPIRIMENT WITH 2 OLDER MEN FOR WHOM COMPANIONSHIP IS A FACTOR ALONG WITH MOBILITY.

I AM COUNTING ON A MATURITY FACTOR IN REALIZING THAT PERFECTION TAKES YEARS- BUT IN THE MEANTIME NEARLY PERFECTION IS NOT BAD.

A REQUIREMENT IS A SENSE OF HUMOR.
****
ACTUALLY WE HAVE DECIDED A SENSE OF HUMOR SHOULD BE REQUIRED OF ALL GREAT DANE OWNERS.-- THESE ARE NOT YOUR AVERAGE BEAGLE...
***

I HAVE TO GO OVER THIS WITH ONE OF THE RECIPIENTS... HE IS CALLING THE DOG WITH A COOKIE IN HIS HAND-- THEN MAKING THE DOG WAIT WAIT WAIT BEFORE HE DELIVERS THE COOKIE.

NEXT ---HE MENTIONED HIS DOG WAS NOT COMING WHEN CALLED TIL HE FELT LIKE IT...

GUESS WHAT... THAT DOG IS NOW GIVING HIM THE WAIT WAIT WAIT.. IT IS NOT NICE TO DO THAT TO A DANE-- THEY DO NOT DO PARLOR TRICKS -- THAT RECIPIENT MUST LEARN TO DEAL WITH HIS DOG ON A MORE EQUAL LEVEL - OR HE IS IN BIG TROUBLE DOWN THE ROAD...

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

THE OLD TIPI IS DOING GREAT AS A PROVIDER OF DOG SHADE.. WHILE BEING COLORFUL AT THE SAME TIME..

PLEASE NOTE... A PROPERLY SET UP TIPI DOES NOT HAVE ANY WRINKLES . SEEING AS THIS ONE HAD IT'S BOTTOM CUT OFF WE CAN NOT TIGHTEN IT DOWN-- IF WE DID THE PUPS WOULD CHEW THE ROPES --- BEEN THERE DONE THAT...

HOPEFULLY WE WILL DO BETTER JOB WITH THE NEW ONE WHICH SHOHLD ARRIVE IN A MONTH.

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

I DON'T KNOW WHAT STATE BENJAMIN BUCKWEAT IS TRAVELING THRU.. HE COULD HAVE BEEN PICKED UP YESTERDAY I HAVE NOT HEARD.

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

THE DOGGIE BAG ON THE WEB IS UP AND READY TO BE TRIED OUT. SELLING FAMILY TREE POSTERS,MONKEY FISTS,PUPPY BREATH AND VERY SHORTLY PUZZLES....

AS OF LAST NIGHT -- THERE WAS SOME CONFUSION ABOUT SHIPPING--- WHICH SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE FIXED..

THER IS ALSO A PROBLEM TO BE RESOLVED WITHTHE MONKEY FISTS -- THERE IS A LITTEL SPECIAL ORDER TYPE THING----- I CAN FINISH THEM IN A STUB ( DOG TOY TYPE) A LOOP ( KEY CHAIN TYPE) OR SNAP---- THT COULD MAYBE BE DONE IN A COMMENT FIELD

SQUIRRELS TO BE WORKED OUT.

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

THE OTHER THING FOR SOMEONE WITH EXTRA COMPUTER TIME--- COULD HELP-- I ORDERED ( ABOUT A YEAR AGO) BRASS RINGS.. IN BULK AND I CAN NOT REMEMBR WHERE

SOLID BRASS RINGS OUTSIDE DIAMETER 3/4 " -- MUST BE SOLID BRASS . I COULD PUT ONE OF THOSE SMALL RINGS SOMEWHERE IN THE MONKEY FIST FOR OPTION OF ATTACHING...-- BUT I HAVE RUN OUT.

HAS TO BE BULK-- BY THE POUND??? OTHERWISE THEY COST A FORTUNE.

BEGINNING TO BARK--  7AM  TRACY MUST BE HERE...

  1. Where do we find the doggie bag? It says it is coming soon and I can't figure out where to buy from or see your items.

    Thank you!
