JULY 1,2013 THE BOOK HAS GONE TO JANINE

JULY 1, 2013
THE BOOK HAS GONE TO JANINE... NOT THE PRINTER-- I HAVE DONE WITH IT.. PROBLEM IS LIFE KEEPS WRITING MORE TO THE BOOK..

I GUESS THE ALTERNTIVE IS AWKWARD

I KEEP REMEMBERING STORIES WHILE AT THE SDME TIME STORIES KEEP GETTING WRITTEN N FRONT OF ME.
*************

LIKE YESTERDAY'S STEW WITH A FEW INTERESTING APPLICANTS... TO EXTEND OUR BELL SHAPED CURVE..

CAUSING A FEW OF US TO SIT BACK AND SAY "WHO'S LIFE WOULD BE MOST CHANGED BY WHAT EXPECTATIONS LISTED IN THEIR APPLICATION"

YOU ALL KNOW 57-- TEAL'S PARTNER WHO WEIGFH'S 57 POUNDS..

WELL ANOTHER HAS APPEARED-- PROBABLY WEIGHS 48 POUNDS

( IF WE START LISTING APPLICANTS BY THEIR WEIGHT, IT COULD GET TRICKY...)

48 WALKS WITH DIFFICULTY-- BUT WALKS--, HE FALLS-- THAT IS NOT THE DEFINED PROBLEM... THE PROBLEM IS HE CN NOT GET UP WITHOUT CRAWLING TO SOME CHAIR ETC...

SO THE REQUEST THERE IS A SOLID DOG WHO WOULD PROVIDE THE STABILITY TO GET UP.

WE ARE JUST BEGINING TO LOOK OVER THE NEW ( 8 MONTH OLD) PUPS THAT ARE JUST BEGINNING THE ACHIEVED BOREDOM PHASE OF TRAINING... SO I DON'T KNOW IF WE HAVE A DOG TO DO THAT OR NOT...

THERE WERE 2 OTHER INTERVIEWEES TO CONSIDER

A 98 POUND AND A 210 POUND...

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

MEANWHILE-- AS OUR EDUCATION CONTINUES..

MARIA AND I BECAME PAINFULLY AWARE THAT WE MUST HAVE ALL OVERNIGHT SITTERS BE INTERVIEWED BY MERLOW BECAUSE SHE HAS VERY DEFINITE FEELINGS IN THE MATTER WHICH DO NOT RESEMBLE ANY IDEAS WE HAD. BOTH ANKLE ANNIE AND BUD--- TWO OF OUR MOST GENTLE VOLUNTEERS GOT SPOKEN TO BY MERLOW-- SHE DID NOT DRAAW BLOOD- AND SHE LICKED BUD'S HAND AFTER CLAMPING DOWN ON IT. IT WAS VERY CLEAR - YOU DO NOT REAACH INSIDE HER PEN WITHOUT HER PERMISSION

ASK PAUL-- HE GOT HIS GLASSES REMOVED BY MERLOW TOO

SO WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHO WE ASK TO SIT WITH THE PUPS-- OR ELSE MARIA AND I GET SUTCK WITH IT. MERLOW LIKES US--- ---PLUS EARLENE AND BECKY 1

AND ALONG COMES PI---

GOING TO BE A BIG WEEK.

 *********************************

MERLOW'S PUPS LOOK GREAT AND ARE GAINING PROPERLY. BUT ARE THEY WANDERERS. IN THE WILD- THESE WOULD NOT SURVIVE...

WHEN MARIA PUT UP THE WIRE SHEL;VING-( WHICH BECOMES OUR PUPPY BARRIER,) I THOUGHT IT WAS WAY TOO EARLY-- BUT THIS BUNCH ARE ALREADY PUSHING AGAINST IT AND THEIR EYES ARE NOT OPEN YET.

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

ON A PERSONAL NOTE.. 2 THINGS

I AM NO LONGER GOING TO BED-- BUT TO CHAIR.. AND THT SEEMS TO BE MORE CONDUCIVE TO SLEEP

.NOT FASCINATIONG?? TRY THIS

THIS ORGANIC COCONUT OIL WHICH SHELIA FOUND -- CONTINUES TO BE PRETTY DARN STRANGE.- ALTHO THE CALORIC CONTENT IS LISTED-- IT WAS SUGGESTERD I THROW A HANDFUL IN THE BATH WATER... -- AFTER 3 YEARS OF DERMOTOLIGISTS TELLING ME WHAT OT SOAK IN, I HAVE TO ADMIT-- THIS IS DIFFERENT IN A POSITIVE WAY.

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

BAILEY JUST REMINDED ME....

WE ALSO HAVE A NEW JOB FOR THE OVERNIGHTERS.. A GREAT DANE WITH AN EMPTY TUMMY OFTEN VOMITS YELLOW ?BILE.

SO THER SHOUJLD BE A 5AM COOKIE DISTRIBUTION FOR AT LEAST ALL THE HOUSE DOGS-

 
******************

WE HAVE NOT ONLY MERLOW'S PUPS, BUT PI'S IMPENDING DELIVERY, THEN A PARADE ON JULY 4TH- WHICH TAKES A WHILE BECAUSE THEY LIKE TO HAVE US HANG AROUND ON THE "GREEN" WITH THE DOGS ON THE BED..

THT MEANS SUPER COVERAGE FOR THURSDAY HERE AT THE HOUSE AND ON THE GREEN IN BURLINGTON. MAYBE DEALING WITH HEAT ( MORE ICE)

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

WITH BOTH TRACY AND THERESA ON VACATION-- STUFF IS PILING UP IN TH E CORNERS- AND ALONG THE WALLS...

I NOTICED LAST NIGHT THRE ARE SEVERAL WALLS IN THIS HOUSE WHERE THE PILES START 4 FOOT WIDE ON THE FLOOR AND TAPER UP TO MEET THE WALL S AT ABOUT 6 FEET.

IT IS ALL VALUABLE STUFF-- BUT IT HAS MET THE CRITICAL MASS OF THE STUFF ON THE FLOOR-AGAINST THE WALL   HAS BEEN MISSING SO LONG THAT WE HAVE TO BUY THT STUFF NEW.

 THAT IS WHEN THE REAL TROUBLE STAAARTS

 WE ARE THERE...

  1. SINCE YOU SLEEP BETTER IN THE CHAIR, YOU MAY WANT TO LOOK INTO AN ADJUSTABLE BED. MY HUSBAND AND I RECENTLY GOT AN ADJUSTABLE SLEEP NUMBER BED THAT HAS THE VIBRATING MASSAGE FEATURE. IT IS FABULOUS! WE HAVE NEVER SLEPT BETTER.

  2. THE ADJUSTABLE SLEEP NUMBER BED DIDN'T WORK OUT AT ALL FOR AN ELDERLY FRIEND OF MINE WITH BAD BACK PROBLEMS. SO, I GUESS THE MESSAGE THERE IS TO CHECK IT OUT IN DETAIL BEFORE MAKING ANY DECISIONS. ; )

  3. THE EMPTY TUMMY SYNDROME IS SOMETHING WE'VE NOTICED WITH OUR DANE. THROUGH TALKING WITH OTHER OWNERS, WE DECIDED THAT THIS WAS NOT SOMETHING TO BE TOO CONCERNED WITH. THANK YOU, CARLENE, FOR MAKING ME FEEL AT PEACE WITH IT. OUR BOY IS 6, AND EVERY BUMP, GURGLE, AND EMISSION MAKE ME WORRY A BIT! I'LL TRY TO BE MORE ZEN WITH HOW HIS BODY WORKS.
