JULY 23, 2013
TIPI SETTING UP RECORD 22 MINUTES AS PER A SIOUX WOMAN ON THE PINE RIDGE RESERVATION.. APPARENTLY THEY HAVE CONTESTS. AT PARTIES ETC... OH BOYS---- 22 MINUTES..... RED FLAG IN FRONT OF A BULL..MY PROBLEM... WELL ONE OF MANY WOULD BE ... I WOULD NEED CONDITIONS-- LIKE -- YOU COULD NOT COUNT THE TIME I HAD TO SIT DOWN AND REST BETWEEN ACTIONS.... AND IT WOULD HAVE TO BE A SMALLER TIP[I THAN THIS ONE WITH THE 27 FOOT LONG POLES.. I HAVE ALL THE OLD POLES--- MAYBE WE COULD TRY AND SET UP ANOTHER DOG ONE FOR SHADE-- AND TIME US---. WRINKES WOULDN'T COUNT...

MAYBE THAT WOULD BE QA PARTY GAME FOR THIS BUNCH COMING IN OCTOBER...

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

SPEAKING OF SHADE... SOMEONE WHO SENT A COUPLE DOLLARS FOR THE FUN JUG SAID THEY WERE FOR KENNEL SHADE... I HAVE BEEN THAT ROAD OF TRYNG TO SHADE THE KENNELS ON THE BARN- AND IT WAS A LOST CAUSE-- BECAUSE THEY ALL HAVE THE ABILITY TO GO INSIDE AND GET OUT OF THE SUN ENTIRELY... PUTTING UP SHADE ROOFS COLLECT ALL KINDS OF THINGS- AND TO COVER THE PART YOU WANT TO SHADE MEANS THE COVER HAS TO INVOLVE THE GATES TO THE FIELD... WHICH ARE ALREADY ILLUSTRAQTING THE "LAW OF DIMINISHING RETURNS." ALTHO I LOVE SUGGESTIONS ABOUT THE FUN JUG, TELLING ME WHAT THE DONATION IS FOR IN THIS CASE LEAVES ME WONDERING WHAT TO DO... KENNEL COVERS JUST DON'T WORK HERE- AND THEY HAVE AN OUT ALREADY...

***

NOW ABOTU THE REQUEST TO TURN THE TIPI AROUND-- AGAIN - THE LAW OF DIMINISHING RETURNS-- YOU COULD NOT SEE INSIDE IT ANYWAY EVEN IF IT DID FACE THE CAMERA. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT I BE ABLE TO SEE WHO IS GOING IN AND OUT ( LIKE THE DOGS...OPA;L ESPOECIALLY) SO IT IS POSITIONED SO I CAN SEE FROM THE T TENT.

I AM DELIGHTED TO HEAR SOME OF YOU HAVE LOOKED UP TIPI DETAILS LIKE FACING EAST--- THAT IS KNOWLEDGE YOU MIGHT NOT OTHERWISE HAVE HAD...

***

WE HAVE A ?BREED OR NOT TO BREED QUESTION AT THE MOMENT... SEEMS AN ODD TIME... BUT WE DON'T GET TO PICK THE TIMEING...

ONE THING THAT WOULD AFFECT US MOST IS THE CONDITION OF THE CHICKNE BRICKS-- YOU PEOPLE HAE BEEN DOING GREAT WITH THEM-- AND WE ARE 1/2 WAY THRU THIS BUNCH...

WTH YOUR SUPPORT WE CAN HAVE ANOTHER LITTER THIS FALL---- SO HAVE AT IT -- YOU HAVE 7 DAYS- TO SHOW YOUR CONTINUED INTEREST IN SUPPP[ORTING THE FOOD/UTIILITIES AND VET EXPENSE OF ANOTHER LITTER...

NAG EACH OTHER TO BUY NUMBERS...

*****

PUPPY FEEDING MAY TAKE PRECIDENT RIGHT NOW... THEY ARE WIMPERNG ... HUNGRY??? AND NEITHER MOTHER SEEMS TO WANT TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT... SO I WILL GET SOME FOOD READY AND CUT THIS SHORT

***

HAVE SOME CUT AND PASTE...

Hello Ladies,
Manny is doing excellent! He's a good boy!
We both are due for a visit and Manny's re-certification identification as well. I believe it is due in early August. I know how busy everyone is at the farm and don't just want to show up unannounced. If you could let us know a more convenient date or time we will be eagerly anticipating our visit. See you soon!
Thank you,
Maureen & Manny

Pandora is very in tune to the people around her and does grumble at certain individuals. Here is what we have discovered:

She doesn't like anyone to do handstands, she runs at them and barks.

A three year old jumping on her bed outside isn't what she feels is good behavior and let him know. She sounded very vicious but the three year old didn't even seem to notice. I think he's got her number.

A nice man called us into his garage on one of our walks and loved her. He told us a story of how he always wanted a Dane but his wife said no. He wanted to show his wife Pandora so went inside to get her. As soon as the wife came out Pandora started grumbling!! Tell me dogs don't know.

Every morning she greets me like we haven't seen each other in years. What a wonderful way to start my day.

Our chocolate lab keeps taking the ball over to Pandora, but Pandora has no idea what she is suppose to do with it. When we throw it she just watches it go up in the sky and then looks at us as if to say, What do you expect me to do now?

She is adjusting well and seems very happy.

You sound way too busy, take it easy and don't forget to relax once in a while.

Debbie and Mike

  1. What I LOVE about dogs: "Every morning she greets me like we haven't seen each other in years." It doesn't matter if you're gone five minutes or five weeks, you get the same greating. (Greating=great+meeting). "I love you, where have you been?"
