ALL ALIVE AND ACCOUNTED FOR

JULY 7,  2013

ALL ALIVE AND ACCOUNTED FOR- ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL NIGHT THANKS TO SHELIA- WHO CONVINCED PI THAT SHE WAS ALLOWED TO TOUCH THE BABIES-- HOWEVER.... COLLEEN- FOR WHATEVER REASON WAS SEEN TO BE A MORTAL ENEMYOF THE PUPS AND WAS LITERALLY CHASED OUT BY BOTH MOMS.

WHO CAN FIGURE?? IT HAS TO BE SOMETHING WE ARE NOT EVEN CONSIDERING-- LIKE HAND SOAP- WHY BUD-- AND ANKLE ANNIE- TWO OF THE KINDEST VOLUNTEERS AROUND-- THEN COLLEEN... BOTH MOMS AT ONCE..

 I CAN SEE ONE DOG ONE PERSON FOR A STRANGE REASON LIKE BAILEY WOULD BITE GEORGE ... THAT I CAN UNDERSTND -- HERE'S A GUY CRAWLING TOWARD HER . ON THE FLOOR, LOOKING AT HER STRAIGHT IN THE EYE(VERY AGGRESSIVE POSITION)WITH A BLACK SNAKE (STETHESCOPE) AROUND HIS NECK..AND WHEN I HELD HER FROM BITING HIM, HE TOOK HOLD OF HER HEAD AND PULLED BACK HER EYELID TO REALLY LOOK IN HER EYE.. THAT HAS TO BE THE ULTIMATE AGREESSIVE EYE CONTACT.

 AT ANY RATE -- SHE IS COMFORTABLE AND HAPPY--AND GREAT ON THE STRAIGHT AWAYS--- TURNING CORNERS SOMETIMES IS A PROBLEM- WE HAD A DOG LONG GO LIKE THIS-- GIGI-- GOT KICKED BY A DONKEY .. COULD JUMP ON THE BED-- NO PROBLEM.. IT WAS THE CORNERS-- SO WE HAD DOZENS OF BATH MATS AT EVERY CORNER.. SHE WAS BROWNIE'S MOTHER ( ONE OF THE VERY GREATS) JOINED THE CROWD AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE AT 9 YEARS OLD..

****

I WOULD NEVER WISH MEGAN'S PUP ANYTHING BUT THE BEST-- EXCEPT MAYBE TODAY-- I HOPE HE NEEDS SURGERY-- BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE THE ALTERNATIVE...

CASE IS.... HE HAS DEVELOPED PROJECTILE VOMIT AND DIARRHEA--- HE ALSO ATE ONE OF HER SOFA'S.. SOO SHE TOOK HIM FOR AN XRAY- AND ETHER HE HAS SOME STOMACH BUG-- OR A PIECE OF THE SOFA IS STUCK ..

IF HE HAS SOME STOMACH BUG, IT COULD BE DEVASTATING WITH PUPS SO YOUNG IF IT IS CONTAGEOUS. THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN KEEP THE PUPS IN STERILE CONDITIONS- I MEAN WE CAN REMOVE OUR SHOES, BUT THE MOMS STILL TRACK IN WHATEVER..

 THERE IS SOME THEORY THAT THE MOM'S VACCINATIONS WILL GIVE THE PUPS SOME IMMUNITY THRU THE COLOSTRUM- BUT WE CAN NOT VACCNATE TIL 6 WEEKS OLD.

***********

YOU ALL WANT TO WORRY ABOUT SOMETHING-- TRY THAT ONE.

I HAD 8 PUPS WITH PARVO ONCE-- THAT IS WHY THERE IS A HOOK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE KITCHEN CEILING I SPENT A WEEK OF GIVING IV FLUIDS AND TRYIG TO KEEP THE PLACE 1/2 TIDY. THEY ALL LIVED-- BUT I NEVER WANT TO HAVE THAT AGAIN..

MEGAN IS TO GO BACK THIS MORNING FOR ANOTHER XRAY TO SEE IF THE PLUG HAS MOVED... IF NOT-- THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO GO GET IT.

******

I KNOW OF A GUY WHO HAS A PIECE OF STRING IN A FRAME IN HIS HOUSE- IT WAS WRAPPED AROUNJD HIS PUP'S TONGUE AND SWALLOWED THE OTHER END.. COST $2000 TO RETRIEVE IT.- AND THESE THINGS ALWAYS HAPPEN ON A SUNDAY...

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

IS SH#TTING SUNDAY SO I HAVE SOME PREP TO DO-- WE WILL SH#T IN THE T TENT--- TO STAY OUT OF THE SUN..

WE HAVE A LOVELY MARKET UMBRELLA THANKS TO THE CAMERA CROWD.. WE DID HAVE TO MOVE THAT PATHETIC AMERICAN FLAG THAT MADE US LLOOK LIKE A MASH UNIT. WE WILL FIND ANOTHER PLACE FOR IT.

 I DON'T WANT ANYONE TO THINK THE PLACE IS TACKY-- BUT DELLORES IS NOW WEARING EARLENE'S SUIT- A HUGE STEP UP FROM THE VICTORIA SECRET UNDERWEAR.. SHE STANDS AT A BEND IN THE ROAD TO THE BARN AND EVERYTIME I GO BY I DO A DOUBLE TAKE THINKING SHE IS REAL-- EVEN WHEN SHE IS MINUS HER WIG-- WHICH IS OFTEN.

AND I FIND THAT EVERYONE TALKS TO HER AS THEY GO BY...

I WOULDN'T DO THAT

OF COURSE ... I ALWAYS SAY" EXCUSE ME" WHEN I RIDE OVER MARY'S GRAVE WITH THE LAWN MOWER.

SPEAKING OF BUCKWHEAT-- HE IS DOING VERY WELL- AND IS DEVELOPING THAT WARPD SENSE OF HUMOR MARY HAD..

PAUL TRIED TO CARRY SOME HAY IN HIS ARMS OUT OF THE BARN AND BB CHASED HIM BIG TIME-- IT IS ALWAYS FUN TO WATCH SOMEONE ELSE RUN ..

TODAY MAYBE WE CAN GET HIM TO THINK OF JOINING US IN THE T TENT -- THE BACK AREA-- BY CAMERA MARK AND HIS GRILL..

********

NOW LETS SEE IF I CAN REMEMBER TO POST THAT IN THE BLOG

  1. We had a Lab who ate a whole bottle of Gorilla Glue! At surgery the Vet removed a lump of glue and whatever the size of a soccer ball! He's fine now.
