SEPT 27, 2013

 LIFE IS GETTING SERIOUS AROUND HERE--- SCARLOTT HAS BECOME VERY CLINGING--- UNFORTUNATELY TO ME--- AND MANAGED  TO BREAK INTO MY BEDROOM TWICE LAST NIGHT...  SO THINGS ARE COOKING..  CP'S ARE WATCHING THE MOVEMENT IN HEER TUMMY AS THE PUPS DO THEIR DAILY EXERCISING  RUNNING LAPS IN THERE..
I HVE TO RUN THIS BY EVERYONE IN PREPARATION FOR HER DELIVERY-- SHE HAD A VERY STRANGE HET CYCLE WHERE SHE ALLOWED YELLOW TO BREED HER ONCE--- THEN SHUT HIM OFF-- SO WE DECIDED SHE WAS OUT OF HEAT AS  NEITHER SHE NOR YELLOW HAD ANY INTEREST IN ECH OTHER...--AND LET HER RUN WITH THE CROWD AROUND THE FARM..  AT WHICH POINT  LOVER BOY BENTLEY BEGAN TO TKE NOTICE OF THIS ATTRACTIVE ADDITION TO THE HERD---  AND BEING YELLOW'S BROTHER, IT WAS NOT  A BAD THING  JUST CURIOUS THAT SCARLOTT WAS NOT TALKING TO YELLOW-- OR ANY OTHER-- UNTIL BENTLY TOOK NOTICE  AND SHE WAS SWEPT OFF HER PAWS.. AND ALLOWED HIM TO BREED FOR THE NEXT 3 DAYS.
 
VERY STRANGE.  WHATEVER IT IS... BENTLEY HAS IT .
 
I WOULD NOT HAVE THOUGHT MUCH MORE ABOUT IT UNTIL GEORGE'S COMMENT WHENB HE DID THE ULTRASOUND  CONFIRMING THE PREGNANCY..
 
"I SEE 4... ONE IS BIGGER THAN THE OTHER"
 
THE 4 IS INSIGNIFICIENT-- THERE  COULD BE15  -  
WHAT DOES WORRY ME IS TH E ONE LARGER...   DO WE HAVE 2 FATHERS GOING?? 
THAT IN ITSELF IS NOT A PROBLEM  2 FATHERS 1 LITTER IS  NO BIG DEAL
 
2 FATHERS 1  WEEK APART IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE WHEN THE GESTATION IS ONLY 63 DAYS ANYWAY
SUPPOSIDLY THE LAST WEEK IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE LUNGS ETC-- 
 
IF INDEED WE HAVE 2 DIFFERENT  FATHERES GOING.... EITHER WE WILL HAVE NORMAL PUPS OF YELLOW'S AND STILLBORNS OF BENTLEYS--- OR NORML BENTLEYS AND A HUGE PUP- PROBABLY STUCK- OF YELLOWS. MEANING A C SECTION...
 
STAY TUNED...MAYBE MOMMY NATURE HAS SOME SOLUTION-- I DUNNO.
*************
AND WE ARE CHANGING CAMERAS... I WILL DO AS I AM TOLD... ONLY BECAUSE I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ALL THE DETAILS... 
 
PLAN IS TO TKE THE INDOOR CAMERA -- A 8 INCH LONG WHITE BOX THING ON A LIGHT TRIPOD..   MOVEABLE BY US MANUALLY......-  AND REPLACE IT WITH THE SAME CAMERA THAT IS ON PUPPY HILL  A 12" ATTACHED TO 18" OF WELDED METASL ON  A SIGNIFICANTLY HEAVY TRIPOD..    WHICH THEY CAN CONTROL LONG DISTANCE---- THEN RETURN THE SMALL 8" ONE AND HAVE THEM WEATHERPROOF  IT FOR USE IN THE T TENT.
 
PERSONALLY I WOULD DO THAT THE OTHER WAY ROUND-- BUT THAT IS WHY I AM A DOG TRAINER AND NOT A VIDEO TECH..
 
I HOPE IT WORKS QUICKLY BECAUSE OF SCARLOTT'S WHELPING -- AND ALL THESE PEOPLE ARRIVING NEXT WEEK
***********]
I DID LEARN-- OR RELEARN--- DON'T GIVE SHELIA A JOB IF YOU  DON'T EXPECT IT TO BE DONE EXPEDITIOUSLY.
 
I ASKED  HER  IF SHE COULD HELP WITH SOLVING THE FLAGPOLE PURCHASE PROBLEM..
NEXT THING I KNOW IS TRACY GETS AN EMERGENCY TEXT SAYING SHE IS COMING DOWN RT 95 WITH A 27 FOOT FLAGPOLE STRAPPED  TO THE ROOF OF HER CAR-- AND HOPING IT STAYS THERE.
 
SHE HAD TROUBLE MAKING THE RIGHT HAND TURN T THE TOP OF TH EDRIVEWAY--- IT STUCK OUT SO FAR IN FRONT.
 
AT ANY RATE IT IS HERE-- AND  SINCE IT WS $600 TO INSTALL IT-- PLUS THE WOMAN WHO SOLD IT SAID IT DID NOT TAKE A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO INSTALL IT... IT WAS DECIDED WE WOULD DO IT OURSELVES...
 
I AM HOPING IT IS VERTICAL BY SUNDAY. 
 SLIGHTLY VERTICAL WOULD  NOT BE AN OPTION.
*************
THE TIPI
 
DAVID AND DUSTIN SLEPTY IN IT LAST NIGHT-- AND THIS IS BEFORE I HAVE HAD A CHANCE TO LINE THE FIEPIT WITH FIREBRICKS-- WHICH ARE SITTING RIGHT OUTSIDE THE TIPI... 
 
IT IS EARLY YET-- SO I DON'T KNOW  HOW THAT WENT--  I KNOW THE TIPI CAN BE WARM AND COMFORTABLE   EVEN IN JANUARY  BUT YOU NEED A FIRE.
**********
STEPH IS EXPECTED TODAY
 
SHE LOVES WORKING WITH   THE LITTLE PUPS...  MAYBE HER CHORE CAN BE TO TRY AND TRANSPORT THEM TO THE V PEN ONE T A TIME...
************
 
THE RAINBOW BRIDGE METAL PLAQUE IS HERE--- AND THAT TOO NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED--- THE POST AND HARDWARE CAME WITH IT.
*****
 
I DON'T THINK SCARLOTT WILL DELIVER FOR THE  TIL AFTER THE WEEKEND-- BUT YOU NEVER KNOW... TEPM WAS TAKEN YESTERDAY AND IT HAD NOT DROPPED THE 2 DEGREES WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO INDICATE DELIVERY WITHIN 24 HOURS.  THEORETICALLY...
*********
SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME THAY HAVE SMALL COLLECDTIONS OF EYE GLASSES TO SEND...  WE COULD USE THEM...I HAVE A FEELIGN WE MAY GET A FEW--  ANY EXTRAS WE WILL DONATE TO THE LIONS EYE PROJECT.
**************
 
AND WE ARE EXPECTING A COUPLE HUNDRED BOOKS TO HAVE A BOOK SIGNING NEXT WQEEK SOMETIME...
 
SO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE ORDERED--- WE HAVE NOT RECIEVED THEM YET...
 
IF YOU ARE WATCHING THE 5PM  MAIL CALL... YOU WILL NOTICE THAT IF AN ENVELOPE  IS A BOOK ORDER, IT GOES IN A YELLOW FILE FOLDER-- AND NOT THE FUN JUG.
***** 
PEOPLE  WHO WANT TO BE HERE IN SPIRIT  NEXT WEEKEND  ARE SENDING THEIR PHOTO'S STUCK TO A POPSYCLE STICK-- WE HAVE QUITE A COLLECTION OF THOSE.
 
*********
I CAN NOT REMEMBER IF I EXPLAINED WHY I  WOULD LOVE TO CROP TAILS-- THERE WAS ONE OR TWO NEGATIVE COMMENTS---   NUMBER 1--3     A TAIL CAUGHT IN A DOOR IS A VERY BAD THING.... AND A HAPPY TAIL  SPRAYING THE WALLS WITH A FINE MIST OF RED BLOOD  IS NOT GREAT--  BUT SLAMMING A MAN  AT THE TOP OF HIS INSEAM  IS A PAINFUL DEAL--- APPARENTLY--
 if they had a better way of cropping than to just lop them off at 2 days old... i would seriously consider it.
*** 
 
KEEP IN MIND SOMETIMES DECISIONS NEED TO BE MADE WHICH DO NOT ALLOW ME TO RUN TO THE COMPUTER AND NOTIFY THOSE 2 OR 3 PEOPLE WHO SEEM  DESPERate  TO KNOW  thigs about which they have no perspective.  
and forgetting to tell them does not constitute any  effort to hide anything- 
 i just forget things.. 
 
i forget alot of things.  at 75 i am entitled......get use to  it.
*********
 
i know i am to dig two holes with the back hoe today
i hope i don't forget where the holes are to be.
 
once dug-- you can not move a hole
 
  and the chicken board--


to buy your $10   "chicken brick"  donation 
 
thanks for your help

  1. I WONDER IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO NUMB THE TAIL FIRST BEFORE CUTTING IT OFF. THAT WAY NO ANESTHESIA BUT THEY COULDN'T FEEL IT.

    1. that sounds like a wonderful compromise :) then they wouldn't miss that extra limb, as they had found the tail very useful in getting that, whoa...watch that tail attention :)
