IF IT IS COOLER.... THE PROJECT OF THE DAY WILL BE TO GET THE COVER ON THE TTENT ANNEX...  I THINK I CAN DO IT WITH MY USUAL BUNCH OF HAY STRING-- CONSTANTLY TYING IT ALMOST IN PLACE-- TIL IT LANDS-- I JUST MIGHT PUT A COUPLE MORE RAFTERS IN PLACE-- WITH HOPES S OMEONE COMES ALONG AND PUTS SOME MORE NAILS IN...  2' CENTERS WOULD VBE BETTER THAN 4' 

AND THE BOOK... I THINK JANINE ORDERED 5 BOOKS FOR US TO  PROOF OVER THE WEEKEND-- THEY SHOULD BE HERE FRIDAY.. THEN ON MINDAY ORDER A BUNCH--   I THINK IT WILL BE ON AMAZON ALSO.

AND THERE IS A PICTURE BOOK BY CAMERA MARK WHICH SHE WILL BE PUTTING  IN OUR DOGGIE BAG ALSO...

DON'T TELL ME WE HAVE ARRIVED??????
********

GINGER... DUE TO SOME VERY COMPLICATED REASON GINGER DID NOT GO HOME WITH DAWN...  SO SHE WAS IN THE HOUSE ALL AFTERNOON.. DURING THAT TIME SHE LEARNED TO EMPTY THE YUPPY PUPPY OF FAR TOO MUCH FOOD.   --- SO SHE SPENT THE NIGHT DRINKING WATER AND THROWING UP-  I THINK IT WAS JUST TOO MUCH FOOD.  SHE SEEMS FINE THIS MORNING...
LIVELY EVENING FOR BECKY...

MARIA AND I SPENT SOME TIME TRYING TO REVITALIZE OUR APPLICANTS BOOK... - WE NEED TO TRIM UP THAT ENTIRE OPERATION ...WE ARE GETTING ALOT OF APPLICNTS WEST OF THE MISSISSIPPI-- AND I HAVE NOT YET FOUND ONE THAT WE COULD DO A PROPER JOB WITH-- SO THEY SHOLD BE QUICKLY REFERREED TO ANOTHER ADI ORGANIZATION... AND THERE ARE ALOT OF THEM IN CALIF..  NONE DEAL WITH DANES...  UNFORTUNETLAY THEY HAVE ONLY THE GOLDEN/LAB BLINDERS ON. 

PEOPLE SHOULD READ OUR WEB SITE MORE CAREFULLY-- WE ASSIGN DOGS FOR ALOT OF REASONS.. BUT ONE OF THE BIGGIES IS HEIGHT AND WEIGHT... THE DOGS SHOULD BE AT LEAST 45% OF THE PERSON'S HEIGHT AND 65% OF THE WEIGHT...-- SO EVEN IF  WALTER PRODUCES PUPS LIKE HIMSELF, WE ARE LIMITED TO  PEOPLE UNDER 6'6"  AND UNDER  250 POUNDS    AS WE JUST DON'T HAVE DOGS BIGGER THAN 160 POUND  THAT IS 35 INCHES TALL-  FOR STRUCTURAL PURPOSES WE TRY AND KEEP THEM  APROX  33" AND 130 #  AS A GOOD WORKING SHAPED DOG... THAT WOULD BE A 6'  PERSON AT 200 POUNDS.. WE HAVE FAR MORE DOGS IN THT RANGE THAN THE 35" TALL.

WALTER IS MATURING-- IN SIZE AT LEAST-- HE IS A GOOFBALL BIG TIME.

WE HAD HIM AT THE PHOTOSHOOT ( FOR THE  CALENDAR)  YESTERDAY-- AND MEGAN DID GET HIM INTO THE LIFEGUARD'S CHAIR-- WITH DIFFICULTY-- THE FACT THAT HIS HEAD WAS UP IN THE UMBRELLA MADE IT A FUNNY  PICTURE... HE WAS NOT AS MALLEABLE AS OPAL  WHO LOOKED GOOD TOO.
WE HAD 3 PUPS TO PUT IN THE KIDDIE POOL-- THEY WERE TOUGH-- THEY DIDN'T WANT TO STAY THERE.  SHOULD BE  A CUTE SHOT...

BUT WHEN WE WERE NOT ACTIVELY HANDLING WALTER HE WOULD ROLL IN THE GRASS  WITH FEET FLYING..
HE MAY HAVE BEEN SLIGHTLY MORE LIVELY THAN USUAL;--- BECAUSE WHEN MEGN PUT OPAL INTHE WHITE LIFEGUARD CHAIR-- THAT TELLTALE RED SPOT APPEARED... MEANING SHE HAD JUST COME IN HEAT..

REMINDING ME OF THE DYA I DID A COMMERD\CIAL IN NEW YORK  "RUB A DUB DUB- 3 DANES IN A TUB"  AND I DISCOVERED ONE OF THE FEMALES HAD JUST COME IN HEAT-- RED SPOT ON WHITE TUB.... SO I SAID SHE BROKE A TOENAIL-- AND WE WENT ON..

WHICH BRINGS UP THE NEXT PROBLEM-- TO BREED OR NOT TO BREED-- IF WE BREED EVERY TIME ANOTHER WHELPS WE WOULD HAVE 6 LITTERS A YEAR- WHICH WOULD NOT BE BAD.  PLAYING THE NUMBERS  6 LITTERS  AVE 7 PUPS PER IS 42 PUPS -- WITH A SUCCESS RATE OF 85%  THAT WOULD BE 36 GRADUATES A YEAR-- OR 3 PER MONTH-- WHICH IS DO-ABLE--- ESPECIALLY IF WE CAN STEAL SHELIA'S DAUGHTER FROM  CRANNEY COMPANY AS AN ADDITIONAL TRAINER.

THE NEXT ONE DUE IN HEAT IS CHAOS--SO SHOULD WE WAIT FOR HER AND START WITH OPAL IN 6 MONTHS??------ PROBLEMS PROBLEMS PROBLEMS..

*************
PAUL BABBY SAT MURPHY AT GEORGES AFTER  MURPH'S SURGERY..   AND WILL DO ANOTHER STINT TODAY...

WE HAVE A COSTCO RUN TO DO FOR HIM-- IT WORKS WELL... AMY ( OFFICE MGR) EMAILS ME A LIST-- WE GO TRAIN A DOG AT COSTCO AND PICK UP THE LLIST DROP IT OFF AND HE SENDS ME A CHECK FOR THE STUFF..

TWO BIRDS ONE STONE.

****

ALOT GOING ON-- CONCRETE POURING  IS GETTING ORGNIZED--- THE AREA OUTSIDE THE LAUNDRY KENNELS-- THE DRY WELL IS IN PLACE.. I CAN NOT BELIEVE WE COULD EVER FILL THAT... IT WAS HUGE..  AND IT ALSO TAKES CARE OF THE  CLOTHES WASHER IN THE GUEST HOUSE

WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS..

******
GETTING ELECTRICAL UP TO PAR NOW IS THE NEXT THING...  BOTH THE TTENT AND THE FEED ROOM DRYER... AND WE SHOULD BE FLYING...

******
THAT BAILEY VIDEO IS WITH THE STUFF ON LINDA'S WEB  OF ALL OUR INFO  --   I THINK... http://tinyurl.com/sdp-linksdoc   WHICH IS LINDA'S PROJECT WITH ALL OUR INFO ON IT.. IT IS VERY COMPLETE !!! 
I DON'T SEEM TO BE ABLE TO MAKE THAT WORK  100% BUT IT DOES EXIST SOMEWHERE

  1. Please don't take this as criticizing, I'm just educating myself - Chaos had a litter last October, is it standard practice to have your girls do a litter per year if it makes fiscal sense? Health-wise is that perfectly fine for the dog? I'm just asking as I know nothing about breeding.

    1. the vet has the final word-- not th efiscal sense..

      he has on ocassion said i had to breed at the following 6 months heat for health reasons..

      we have no standard practice of much of anything-- too many variables... a biggie is the genetics..
