JUNE 6, 2013

PROBLEM - I DON'T DO FACEBOOK- AND APPARENTLY DAVID WROTE A LOVELY CREATIVE REPORT ON HIS SUCCESS WITH DUSTIN-- WHICH I WOULD LOVE TO CUT AND PASTE-- BOTH MARIA AND MEGAN HAVE IT AND HAVE NOT INCLUDED ME IN THE LOOP-- AND I AM MAD. ( ONLY DOGS ARE MAD??? BULL &*@#%$)

DAVID SAID IT HAD SOME THING TO DO WITH GAINING 140 POUNDS ( HE GOT DUSTIN) WHICH ENABLED HIM TO GO TO 3 STORES ALL BY HIMSELF. A HUGE SUCCESS STORY... IF ONLY SOMEONE WOULD TELL ME ABOUT IT SO WE DD'ERS I COULD ENJOY IT TOO.

HE IS NOT THE ONLY ONE... BRIAN IN KENTUCKY PUTS THINGS ON FACEBOOK THAT NEVER GET TO ME.

SO I SHOULD LEARN TO READ THE VOLUMES OF STUFF ON FACEBOOK?? I HAVE ENOUGH TROUBLE KEEPING TRACK OF THINGS NOW... I DO NOT NEED ANOTHER CHORE..

THESE STORIES ARE MY ( AND OTHER VOLUNTEERS) PAYCHECKS

SINCE WE DONATE THESE DOGS, I DO NOT THINK IT UNREASONABLE TO ASK THAT RECIPIENTS SEND THE REPORTS TO ME IN AN EMAIL SO I CAN CUT AND PASTE TO THIS DD.

*******************
ANOTHER POINT BEING-- WE HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND THE HUGE DIFFERENCE TINY THINGS MAKE IN THE LIVES OF PEOPLE WITH A HANDICAP.. THE DOGS ARE ENABLERS BY JUST DONG SIMP;LE THINGS.---

THE FURNATURE PERSON WHO CAME AND JUST TRIED OUT THE CONCEPT OF A SERVCE DOG WAS THRILLED TO GO UP AND DOWN A CURB..

JOCELYN THRILLED TO BE ABLE TO SPEND 3 HOURS WANDERING AROUND THE MALL WITH A FRIEND AND TEAL-- WITHOUT HER FATHER,

BUD2 TAKING HIS FAMILY TO CANNOBIE LAKE AMUSEMENT PARK

& MAUDE ENABLEING SUSAN TO RESCUE HER HUSBAND WHO WAS BEING PINNED TO A TOILET BY HIS ELECTRIC CHAIR.

WE- THE "ABLE BODIED PUBLIC" - CAN NOT IMAGINE THE DETAILS..

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

WELL.... I AM NOT "FACEBOOK ENABLED" - THIS IS A PROBLEM.

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

TODAY'S CHALLANGE

TRY AND GET A SYSTEM GOING OF 5:00PM OPENING MAIL AND BOXES IN THE T TENT WHERE IT CAN BE SEEN BY THE PUPPY HILL CAMERA ..A LL HTESE PEOPLE WO SEND THE MARVELOUS STUFF WE DESPARETLY NEED LIKE VITAMINS-- ARE CURIOUS IF STUFF GOT HERE-- MOST OF THE BOXES DO NOT HAVE THE PEOPLE'S NAME - THAT IS ONE OF THE LARGE REASONS I DON'T WRITE THANK YOUS.

 AND THE NEXT CHALANGE - A BIG ONE..

WE PUT EBONY IN WITH THE COUPLE FROM NEW JERSEY- AND SHE UNEXPECTEDLY PANIC'ED ABOUT BEING ALONE IN THE CABIN WITH PEOPLE-- TOTALLY UNEXPECTED.. SHE IS USUALLLY FULL OF CONFIDENCE ETC... SHE LOST IT THERE...

WE TRY AND FIGURE IT OUT-- IT COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS HE HAD JUST PUT SOME MEDICINE IN HIS EYES- AND GOT IT ON HIS HANDS? WHEN SHE FIRST CAME IN SHE WALKED RIGHT UP TO THEM- ATE ONE COOKIE AND FLEW TO THE FAR SIDE OF THE ROOM.. MARIA AND I WERE BOTH SURPRISED.. SO WE HAVE SOME RECALCULATION TO DO TODAY..
 
LATE3 REPORT-- THIS IS LOOKNG BETTER AT 11 AM... I WAS WORRIED
 
****************

I FUSSED SO LOUDLY THT MARIA SENT ME DAVE'S COMMENTS

Day one from Dave:

Best day ever. He's incredible. went to three stores together and he did better than i could have imagined, alone with me. he did great with following the front of the shopping cart to provide direction, better than when i pulled the cart. He's out enjoying the yard now. =

I gained 140 lbs this week alone, and the confidence that came with him, makes me feel weightless.

Thank you Service Dog Project!!
And Carlene, be prepared, our relationship has just begun.

Sending our Love you all

Dustin and Dave

  1. With the various volunteers contributing their time, who receives a paycheck from our financial contributions?

    1. the employees aren't paid via the chicken ricks and other various financial contributions. the monies from that is used for vet bills, heating and cooling the kennels, buying food for the dogs. SDP payroll is not paid for by the CP's and the monies we send.

    2. Where do you receive the funds from that pays for your employees?

      I hope my question doesn't disappear again.

    5. If bob is really interested in how the finances are calculated, he should go to the IRS site and request a copy of the 990 which is available to everyone. Andee did answer your question, she was being accommodating and you are being immature.

    7. Bob ~ just get the form 990 and you'll have all the numbers you need. The same numbers the IRS got.

    1. I loved that comment too. I saw David on cam the night he was in the office in his PJs. He was watching Dustin sleeping. I can't describe how touching it was to see him watching Dustin and smiling. Way to go SDP!
