NOV 19, 2013

HAPPY19TH OF THE MONTH  -  THERE THAT GETS RID OF ALL BIRTHDAYS ANNIVERSARIES   ETC   FOR THIS MONTH..

I HAS HAPPENED AGAIN..  3 DAYS AGO I BROKE MY EYEGLASSES BY SLEEPING IN THEM..    2 DAYS AGO I FIXED THEM  WITH GREAT EFFORT SITTING HERE AT MY DESK  CUTTING AND SHAPING SOME TAPE TO HOLD THEM TOGETHER...... MAIL GOT DUMPED ON MY DESK-FOR THOSE  3 DAYS   - AND DURING MAIL CALL I   STACK THE POOP PICKERS  CENTER FRONT BY THE KEYBOARD..
SO HOW--- THIS MORNING-- CENTER FRONT--- IS THE TINY  BRASS SCREW AND WASHER  THAT I LOST-- REMEMBER   I BROKE THE GLASSES SLEEPING IN THE OTHER ROOM 3 DAYS AGO....-- IT IS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE GHOST THINGS...

THE END OF MAILCALL LAST NIGHT WE KIND OF HURRIED DUE TO AN EMERGENCY-- AND I DID NOT GIVE PROPER THANKS FOR THE OMAHA STEAK BOX. SENDER    ..-- NOW THERE IS SOME REALL FOOD INSTEAD OF SUB SANDWICHES AND CHINESE FOOD.  MANY THANKS !!  AND IN IT WAS SOME PORK-- WHICH I THINK EARLENE  ESPECIALLY LIKES-- AND SHE IS DUE HERE TOMORROW...

SPEAKING OF SUPPER---AND  TRYING TO COOK.. WHICH IS NOT MY FAVORITE OCCUPATION..
. I AM GOING TO LAY THE LAW DOWN TODAY IN THE KITCHEN-- IT IS ABSOLUTELY ABSURD- LAST NIGHT TO TRY AND GET ONE PAN IN THE SMALL OVEN, THERE WAS NOT ONE INCH OF COUNTER SPACE--- LITERALLY-- STUFF WAS PILED UP IN FRONT OF THE MICROWAVE SO I COULDNT'T EVEN OPEN THAT DOOR...  AND THE RE FRIGERATOR-  PACKED SOLID TO THE DOOR.  TODAY OUT COMES THE RED TAPE AND I WILL MARK OFF A SMALL AREA TO BE MINE...  ALONG WITH ONE SHELF IN THE FRIDGE.  DOESN'T SEEM UNREASONABLE---  HAVE A LOOK ON THE CAMERA-- YESTERDAY YOU COULD NOT EVEN GET A CUP OF COFFEE WITHOUT UNCOVERING THE KERIG MACHINE-- TOO OFTEN WE CLEAN UP MY MOVING THE MESS..  THAT DOESN'T COUNT...OR WORK...-  

SO THERE WILL BE NOTHING IN MY RED TAPED AREA-- I MAY EVEN SPLURGE AND CLAIM A SINK--- THERE ARE THREE

SEE HOW LONG THIS LASTS...
*****************

BLUE WENT HOME WITH LYN YESTERDAY--- BETWEEN LYNN AND HER DAUGHTER-- THEY BOTH HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH DEAF DOGS--  WHICH HE MIGHT BE....SO BLUE SHOULD DO VERY WELL WITH  THE ONE ON ONE ATTENTION.  THE CAMERA PEOPLE DID NOT OBJECT--  BOY HAVE THEY COME A LONG WAY-- WHEN WE STARTED THEY WERE SURE EVERYTHING WE DID WAS  AN EFFORT TO ABUSE AN ANIMAL--- SLOWLY THEY HAVE LEARNED-- WE HAVE THE PUP'S  BEST INTERESTS IN MIND..

JANINE TOOK BENTLEY HOME- AND LAST I HEARD SHE INTENDED TO GET HIM IN THE SHOWER...  I WISH THE CAMERAS WERE IN ON THAT ONE./  HE IS STRONG... ( SO IS SHE)  NOW THAT COULD TURN INTO AN UGLY CONFRONTATION-- BUT AT LEAST THEY ARE EVENLY MATCHED.  

****************
TOMORROW WE WILL BE JOINED BY A  PERSON WHO IS INTO CLICKER TRAINING.---  GET IT STRAIGHT--  I DON'T BELIEVE THERE IS ANYTHING  WRONG WITH CLICKER TRAINING--- IT IS JUST I HAVE SEEN VERY FEW PEOPLE BE ABLE TO DO IT PROPERLY-- WITH SPLIT SECOND TIMING... AND IF YOU DON'T HIT IT RIGHT, YOU ARE UNTRAINING THE DOG.--    AND IT IS USED MORE FOR "TRICK TRAINING' THAN PLAIN OLD EDUCATION... AND WHEN I SAY TRAICK TRAINING , I PUT IN THAT CTAGORY THING SOME SERVICE DOGS HAVE TO DO .... LIKE OPEN DOORS ETC..-- OURS DON'T HAVE TO DO THAT...

 THE COMICAL PART IS  SOME PEOPLE BUY A CLICKER AND EXPECT THEIR DOG TO BE TRAINED AUTOMATICALLY  WHEN IT IS ACTUALLY THEY THAT HAVE BEEN TRAINED TO GO BUY A CLICKER..

BEST CLICKER DOG I HAVE SEEN WAS BETH'S BLACK LAB..-- ONE DAY- SITTING IN THE T TENT ... SHE BET ME SHE COUD GET HER  DOG TO BRING ANY OBJECT IN THE YARD TO HER AND PUT IT ON THE TABLE....
IT WASN'T MUCH MORE THAN 5 MINUTES HER DOG HAD PICKED UP THE  BLUE BUCKET I SUGGESTED  AND PUT IT ON THE TABLE.
SO IT CAN BE DONE...

I HAVE ALSO HAD DOZENS OF PEOPLE EXPLAIN TO ME HOW SUPERB THE CLICKER IS... YET THEIR DOGS DON'T CLICK...

THE CONCEPT-- DONE CORRECTLY IS GREAT..   BUT YOU HAVE TO REMEMBE RWHERE YU PUT THE CLICKER--- WHICH IS MY FIRST PROBLEM.
*************
CUT AND PASTE DEPARTMENT---   AND I KNOW I MISPLACED A COUPLE  BUT HERE'S 2

HI CARLENE,

I WANTED TO GIVE YOU A QUICK UPDATE ON IVY.  SHE IS DOING AWESOME.  LAST NIGHT WE WERE IN THE LIVING ROOM AND I GOT UP TO GO TO THE KITCHEN TO PUT A GLASS IN THE SINK.  AS I TURNED AROUND, MY KNEE GAVE WAY AND I FELL DOWN.  I SWEAR IVY WAS THERE WITHIN 2 SECONDS AND I WAS ABLE TO USE HER TO GET MYSELF BACK UP.

EACH DAY IS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER.

I WILL SEND REGULAR UPDATES ON OUR PROGRESS.

BETTY A. TINGLEY

Hi Carlene.   Being that it is the season of giving thanks I want to share mine with you. I am thankful for SDP! A wonderful place that my heart aches for when I am away. A place where controlled chaos bows down to the sense of home that it offers. I am thankful for all the wonderful people who work and volunteer there to accomplish this mission that you founded. I am thankful for you. I will never forget the moment I met you and how I was nervous because you were to the point and in control of everything but also at that moment I wanted to know how you did it all and how you do it all! I am thankful that you brought Harry into my life and gave me that life changing opportunity and challenging one as well. I am sure that you hear how wonderful sdp is all the time and it really is! Thanks to you we all have something to be thankful for.  You are amazing and a true role model.  Thank you!    Beth.
