NOV 25,2013
I HAVE HOPEFULLY ATTACHED THE VIDEO OF THE RUNNING OF THE DANES VIDEO OF THE CALENDAR SHOT.  OR WILL FIGURE OUT HOW TO PUT IT ONLINE SOMEWHERE LATER...
.II IF YOU CAN STOP IT T 14 SECONDS-- ALONG ABOUT WHEN I  AM HEARD TO SAY "OH SH#T" IT LOOKS LIKE THAT IS THE ACTUAL SHOT WILLIAM  USED FOR THE COVER.

JUST IN CASE YOU THOUGHT  THE DOGS AND DONKEY BOOK OF JANINE'S WAS THE LAST IN THE STORY... IT MIGHT PAY TO RUN THRU THE PRODUCTION OF THE COVER OF THE CALENDAR.

I WAS CONVINCED I WANTED PHOTO'S OF DANES DOING SOMETHING INSTEAD OF JUST SITTING DRAPED IN A COSTUME-
-AMONG OTHER THINGS.. JANINE ROLLERBLADES BIG TIME-- LIKE  WITH A BIG GROUP  WHO HOLD ROLLING WEEKENDS IN VARIOUS US CITIES.... I.E.  SHE IS NOT A BEGINNER.
SO I  DECIDED A SHOT OF A TROIKA OF 3 DANES PULLING HER WOULD BE SPECTACULAR.
FRM HER BOOK YOU CN TELL SHE IS TOTALLY USED TO "BE AT THE FAIRGROUNGS AT 2:30 WITH ROLLERBLADES. AND SHE WAS.
WILLIAM HUBER ( PHOTOGRAPHER PAR EXCELLENT)  MET US THERE-- AS DID KITTY (EXCELLENT ORGANIZER/STYLIST ETC)  PLUS BENTLEY OPAL AND CHAOS(NOT FAR INTO HER PREGNANCY)
WITH CORRESPONDING DOG CREW.
WILLIAM TOOK THE FOLLOWING PICTURE... WELL I CAN'T GET IT TO COPY  BUT IT IS A SIMPLE SHOT OF 3 DOGS PULLING HER AT THE FAIRGROUNDS...

janine 3 dog red copy.pages
I LOVED IT-- THE DOGS WERE GREAT LOOKED PERFECT IN 3 OLD RED HORSE HALTERS AS  HARNESS...JANINE'S HAIR BLOWING ETC... GOOD PICTURE... FROM A DOG PERSON'S POINT OF VIEW.
I THOUGHT  IT WOULD BE A GOOD COVER SHOT- EASILY MY FAVORITE SHOT...
WILLIAM HATED IT AND DIDN'T EVEN WANT IT IN THE CALENDAR.
WE WENT BACK AND FORTH FOR DAYS-- WITH KITTY TRYING TO  FIGURE OUT HOW TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEM  ( SHE IS UNBEATABLE TO JUST HAVE AROUND WHEN A DAM IS BEGINING TO CRACK) THEN WILLIAM OFFERED TO RESHOOT IT AT A LOCATION OF HIS CHOOSING.  AND FURTHERMORE NO SLEEZY OLD RED HARNESSES, HE WANTED LEATHER-- AND 4 DOGS.

THE LEATHER WAS NOT IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE THOSE ARE HORSE HALTERS UPSIDE DOWN AND BACKWARDS-- THEY MAKE GREAT ( CHEAP) DOG HARNESS...

BUT THE 4 DOGS??? BY NOW CHAOS WAS "GREAT WITH CHILD" AND NOT UP TO RUNNING AROUND A PHOTO SHOOT.

AND THERE IN LIES THE PROBLEM.  
I HAD BENTLEY AND OPAL-- IN SHELIA'S CAR NICE CAR--( KNOWN FOR STARTING AND HAVING FULL GAS TANK.) 
 MEGAN HAD NOEL,MIA,GINGER, AND KHAKI.  WITH MARIA.... IN THE COA VAN...
JANINE ARRIVED STRAIGHT FROM  GOODWILL INDUSTRIES DONE UP LIKE SOME FRENCH ARISTOCRAT IN A  $2 SPECIAL BLACK  COAT--- WHICH KITTY FITTED TO HER WITH HER MAMOUTH COLLECTION OF SAFETY PINS AND DUCT TAPE.

DOGS IN LEATHER HARNESS-- WITH  MY OLD ( LONG) DRIVING REINS-  JANINE HAD THOSE CAREFULLY COLLECTED AS SHE STOOD THERE ON  HER ROLERBLADES.
MARIA HAD BENTLEY AND OPAL AND MEGAN NOEL AND MIA

LOOKING TERRIFFIC  .. LINE THEM UP--- I CALL BENTLEY FROM THE "FINISH LINE" ...
 EVERYBODY LETS GO--- OPAL AND MIA JUMP FORWARD TO RUN  AND BENTLEY  FIGURES IT IS PARTY TIME SO HE JUMPS SIDEWAYS AND MOUNTS NOEL
EVERYBODAY STOPED REGROUPED SPOKE HARSHLY TO BENTLEY-- WHO DID THE SAME THING AGAIN... 

OK GET RID OF NOEL-- WHO UNKNOWN TO US  HAD  APPARENTLY  JUST COME IN HEAT -- PUT HER BACK  ACROSS THE FIELD  IN THE VAN.
START AGAIN WITH GINGER IN NOEL'S PLACE
ALL SYSTEMS LOOKED GREAT-- READY SET GO  -- EVERYBODY  LETS GO--  OPAL AND  GINGER RUN DIRECTLY FOR ME-- AND BEING SNAPPED TOGETHER, RAN ON EITHER SIDE OF ME KNOCKING ME FLAT-- WHILE BENTLEY TOOK AN IMMEDIATE LEFT TURN DRAGGING MIA TOWARD THE VAN- AND NOEL, KNOCKING MARIA  OFF HER FEET INTO A BUSH..

SO WE STARTED AGAIN..

LAURA  IMMEDIATELY SUGGESTED SHE HOLD  NOEL AT THE FINISH LINE  TO KEEP BENTLEY HEADED THE RIGHT DIRECTION...

THIS IS WHERE THAT VIDEO STARTS.. 
THE SEQUENCE GOES SOMETHING LIKE 
? WILLIAM .. YOU READY??
"  YES GO"
"BENTLEY COME... BENTLEY COME -- OPAL HERE --BENTLEY COME"
"JANINE SMILE"   --SHE DOES
JANINE THROWS REINS INTHE AIR WHILE FLYING BY  AT 30 MPH
I AM HEARD TO SAY    "OH SHIT  I   MISSED HIM--" 
AND MEGAN  RUNNING TOWARD US SCREAMING "DON'T LET HIM RAPE NOEL"
I STUMBLED   TOWARD LAURA WHO WAS NOW TWISTED IN NOEL'S LEASH AS BENTLY  CHASED NOEL  ON 2 BACK LEGS.
I GRAB THE OFFENDING BODY PART 1/2 INCH SHORT OF IT'S TARGET  AND ANNOUNCE "I GOT IT"  

NOW IF YOU STOP THAT VIDEO AT ABOUT THE 14TH SECOND--- IT IS THE SHOT WILLIAM CHOSE FOR THE COVER

I BET YOU NEVER THOUGHT OF THE COMPLICATIONS.

  1. I CAN'T BELIEVE THERE AREN'T ANY COMMENTS HERE. MOST OF YOUR DD'S MAKE ME SMILE; THIS ONE MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD! I EVEN WENT BACK A COUPLE TIMES TO HEAR YOUR "OH SHIT" COMMENT WHICH IS NOT EASILY HEARD UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED FOR IT. THERE REALLY NEEDS TO BE ANOTHER BOOK. I THINK IT COULD BE EITHER SHOWCASING THE ANTICS OF SDP'S STARS LIKE BENTLEY, THE STUD MUFFIN, BAILEY THE BASKET CLOWN, OR EVEN FEATURING MORE STORIES ABOUT MARY THE CARROT JUNKIE. SEE, THERE ARE YOUR FIRST 3 CHAPTERS. I CAN'T THINK OF OTHERS RIGHT NOW BUT I'M SURE YOU CAN. I ALSO THINK A BOOK COMPOSED JUST OF YOUR DD'S, "THE BEST OF CARLENE'S DOGGIE DAILIES". BOTH WOULD SELL VERY WELL! PLEASE CONSIDER IT.
