OCT 25,  2013


BOY YOU CP'S DON'T MISS MUCH-- I HAD ON A HOSPITAL BRACELET BECAUSE I HAD A FAT FOOT-- AND THE DR WANTED TO BE SURE  I DID NOT HAVE ANY KIND OF CLOT...  HOW COME YOU MISSED THE FAT FOOT???

BABIES ARE EATING (AKA SWIMING IN) GRUEL-- STEPH WILL BE HERE TODAY -- SHE CAN CONTINUE--  ? HOW OFTEN?   WELL THERE ARE 11 SO IT IS NEARLY FINISH THE 11TH AND START AGIN WITH THE FIRST.  THIS PROBbly means SCARLOT will sTOP CLEANING UP AFTER THEM..  I COME FRM AN ERA OF SUFFERING WIHT  MESSY NEWSPAPER-- SO THE PEE WEE PADS AND BABY WIPES ARE A LUXURY..
********
HERE'S TROUBLE...  FROM JANINE...

I HAVE ASKED....

THE REASON I HAVE ASKED IS..( YOU READY??)  HER FEET ARE TRIMMED. 
 IT ISN'T MUCH TO GO ON... BUT IF SHE WAS A REAL SOB HER FEET WOULD NOT BE TRIMMED.
I AM ASSUMING A "SHE "
 BUT I AM NOT SURE OF THAT EITHER...

HAS THAT "QUIET EYE"  THAT MARY HAD

STAY TUNED..
**************

NEXT PROBLEM--  WE HAVE SUGGESTED THAT ALL WHO APPLY FOR A DOG  START THEIR OWN SAVING ACCOUNT AS INSURANCE AGAINST ANY  VET BILLS-- THAT IS A GOOD IDEA... AND I SEE NO REASON NOT TO REQUIRE IT-- VETERANS APPARENTLY HAVE VETERNARY INSURANCE FOR THIER SERVICE DOGS  BUT ONLY AFTE A GREAT DEAL OF PAPERSORK.

BESIDES BEING A GOOD IDEA FINANCIALLY, IT IS ONE MORE WAY TO SEE JUST WHO IS COMMITTED TO HAVING A SERVICE DOG--- WHICH IS WONDERFUL-- BUT ALSO A BUNCH OF RESPONSIBILITIES TOO.

MAYBE THIS IS SOMETHING WE CN ASK OUR LOCAL VETERANS OFFICE TO HELP WITH--  WHERE ON EARTH DO YOU START TO TRY AND GET IT??  BOB (PI) SENT US A MANUAL  WHICH I HAVE NOT READ--- IT IS ABOUT 1/2 INCH THICK.

SO IN TH E PROCESS OF APPLYING FOR A DOG.  AFTER YOU HAVE COME HERE FOR AN INTERVIEW AND BEEN TOLD AN OFFICIAL "MAYBE"  YOU CAN OPEN THE BANK ACCOUNT IN YOUR NAME  AND SEND US A COPY OF THE FACT THAT YU HAVE $2500 IN THE BANK AS AN EMERGENCY FUND FOR DOG EXPENSES....  THEN  I SUPPOSE IT S SOMETHING WE SHOULD REQUIRE IN YOUR FILE WHEN YOU ASK ME TO RENEW YOUR CERTIFICATION.

MANY VETERNRIANS ARE REQUIRING PRE PAYMJENT FOR SURGERY- AND I WOULD NOT WANT THE SITUATION OF A DOG STARTING TO BLOAT WHILE PEOPLE ARGUE ABOUT LIMITS ON CREDIT CARDS..
******* 
WHICH BRINGS UP ANOTHER ODDITY OF MINE..

I HAVE OFTEN SAID-- SO I WILL REPEAT-- WE ARE NOT FORCING THESE DOGS OFF INTO YEARS OF SLAVERY---  YOU CAN NOT TAKE A DOG FROM HERE TIL THE DOG FOLLOWS YOU AROUND..  MANY TIMES WE HAVE STOOD AROUND AND WATCHED AN APPLICANT WALK UP TO THE GUEST HOUSE-- AND THE DOG THEY HAE BEEN WORKING WITH JUST TAGS ALONG OFF LEASH RIGHT BEHIND.-- THT IS THE POINT AT WHICH WE DECIDE THEY  ARE READY  TO GO HOME WITH THE DOG.

IT CAN NOT FOLLOW A FORMULA SO DON'T ASK ? HOW LONG?

NOW IT IS BACK TO THE BOOKS...
