dec 19

happy 19th of the month !!- that is for anyone  who has something to celebrate  this month... wish them  all on the 19th - it is easier

THIS FOOL MACHINE JUST  TOLD ME I HAVE PERFECT SPELLING-- I HAD NOT TYPED ANYTHING YET...  SHOWS  YOU HOW WRONG COMPUTERS CAN BE..  OR IS THAT TODAYS LESSON ... IF YOU DON'T SAY ANYTHING HOW CAN YOU BE WRONG?

I MEANT TODAYS LESSON TO BE HOW TO GIVE A DOG   (OR DONKEY) A TREAT..  DOESN'T SOUND LIKE TOO MUCH OF A CHALLANGE... BUT.....   FOR TRAINING PURPOSES.......  MAKE THIS A  A REECTANGULAR TREAT..... .. IF YOU HOLD IT IN LINE WITH YOUR  HAND-- AND THE ENTHUSIASTIC PUP LEAPS QUICKLY FOR  IT, YOU INSTINCTIVELY DRAW YOU HAND BACKWARDS-- SO THE PUP LEARNS J TO  JUMP QUICKER AND SNATCH Faster--  eventually fingers and blood are involved--   NOT THE PUP'S FAULT...  BUT WILL GET THE BLAME...  BEFORE IT STARTS... TRY HOLDING THE TREAT AT A RIGHT ANGLE TO YOUR HAND-- THE PUP WILL FOCUS ON THE TREAT-- THEY REALLY DON'T WANT YOUR HAND SO  YOU  CAN  MOVE YOUR HAND TOWARD THE PUP-- EVENTUALLY WILL ELIMINATE THE SNATCH INSTINCT--  A WELL TRAINED DOG ( BAILEY)  WILL EVENTUALLY OPEN HER MOUTH AND LET YOU INSERT THE COOKIE...

THE PUPS HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO-- WE ARE OFF TO A ROUGH START WITH THEM... I SHOULD HAVE PAID MORE ATTENTION SOONER...

ALONG THOSE LINES... A PUPPY'S CONCEPT OF ......". I CAN CHASE  THEM   " 
NOT TO BE ENCOURAGED GETTING KNOCKED FLAT IN FUN OR ANGER IS NOT AMUSING...

JUST AS JANINE SAYS IN THE BOOK--  LUCY OUR PET PIG ONLY NEEDED ONE CLUE THAT IF SHE SCREAMED AT MY HUSBAND'S FEET HE WOOULD JUMP AWAY.. THAT ON E CLUE TURNED INTO A NIGHTLY  HIDE IN THE BUSHES AND WAIT FOR HIM TO CLOSE THE CAR DOOR  THEN RUN AT HIM SCREECHING AND HE WOULD RUN TO THE HOUSE...  IT HAPPENED CONSTANTLY...  PIGS ARE SMART.

APPLY THAt same thing to a postman coming up to the door-- leaving the mail then turning away and leaving... NOW FROM, THE DOG'S POINT OF VIEW...   IF I BARK LOUDLY ENOUGH HE WILL GO AWAY.. I CAN CHASE HIM--- --  THERE IS NO PRACTICAL SOLUTION TO THAT ....POSTMEN HVE TO COME AND GO--  JUST  TRY ANS STOP THAT BEFORE IT BEGINS--  
FOR A SLIGHTLY BORED DOG THE VACUUM CLEANER IS ALMOST THE SAME CONCEPT-- AS YOU  MOVE IT FORWARD AND BACK... AND THE DOG SNAPS AT IT... THEY THINK ( IN MY OPINION) THEY ARE CHASING IT BACKWARDS.

SPEAKING OF PAYING MORE ATTENTION-- I WANTED TO CROP THE EARS OF THE 2 WHITE PUPS IN THE HOPES OF GIVING THEM   A CHANCE OF BETTER HEARING WITH EARS UP...- IF POSSIBLE -  THAT IS NOT A KNOW MEDICAL FACT--- IT IS JUST  WHEN A DOG WANTS TO HEAR BETTER THEY PUT THEIR  OWN EARS UP IF THEY CAN...  AS OPPOSED TO A BASSETT HOUND WHO NEVER SEEMS TO HEAR ANYTHING ANYWAY 

I FORGOT TO BOOK IT WITH GEORGE WHO SAID HE NEEDED  TO DO IT BEFORE CHRISTMAS-- SO THAT IS UP IN THE AIR... ALSO  ARIOT HAS A SLIGHTLY CHEWED UP EAR NOW -- BOO'S TERRIBLE TEETH DID A JOB-- JUST IN PLAY...  HAVING A BUNCH OF DOGS MAKES FOR DIFFERENT DECISIONS  THAN HAVING ONE PET DOG.    CHEWED UP EARS AND TAILS CAN BE A BIG PROBLEM.  ALTHO THE WORST BITTEN EAR WE HAVE EVER HAD WAS A BOY WHO BIT DEAGLE AT A PARTY IN MEDFORD-- A 2" TEAR MAKING BLOOD ALL OVER FOR A LONG TIME AND A SPLI EAR.. -- THEN THERE IS LUNA'S 2" TORN EAR-- DONE BY HER PERFECT SISTER- -----  BAILEY..  .PROPERLY DONE BY A VETERINARIAN   IT IS NOT A BIG DEAL... CERTAINLY LESS THAN REMOVING  THEIR   MALE APPENDAGES...

I ALSO NEED TO CONTACT DAVID ONTHE WHEELCHAIR PROJECT... WE HAVE TH E  MONEY-- AND HE GAVE ME THE NAME OF THE CHAIR-- BUT HE DID NOT GIVE ME THE WHOLE NAME OF THE BOY WHO NEEDS IT...  WAYNE IIN  WESTERN MASS  IS NOT ENOUGH INFO...

YESTERDAY'S MAILCALL GAVE  ME MORE THQAN I CAN DEAL WITH IN ONE DAY...  FROM LEG WARMERS TO BROADWAY MUSIC --  TO  HEAD  FLASHLIGHTS- TOA GREAT LOOKING KONG TOY-- WHICH WE REALLY NEED TO REDESIGH TODAY-- IT IS A WEIGHTED KONG WITH ONE HOLE FOR TRETS TO FALL OUT...  EXCET IT ONLY FRUSTRATES THEM BEECAUSE  BY SMELL   THEY CONCENTRATE ON THE HOLE WHICH DOESN NOT GET THEM ANYWHERE-- IT NEED S  2 MORE HOLES DRILLED  SO AS THEY POKE AT IT - IT PRODUCES SOMETHING...  IT IS TOO FAR AWAY FORM SUCCESS TO MAKE ONE HOLE WORK...

NOW THE PIG-- ON THE OTHER HAND-- COULD HAVE FIGURED THAT OUT RIGHT AWAY..

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ..BUT IN OUR IMMEDIATE GROUP OV VOLUNTEERS THERE ARE 4 CHILDREN WITH UNDIAGNOSED BELLYACHES-- AND 2 HAVE NOT BEEN ANYWERE NEAR THE OTHER 2.

IT IS LIKE THE DAY MY ELECTRICITY WENT OUT--  AND I CALLED A LOCAL FRIEND -- HER POWER WAS OUT TOO-- SO IN DARKENSS ----TO KILL TIME--- I CALLED MY PARENTS IN NEW YORK AND FOUND THEIR POWER WAS OUT TOO...( THE GREAT POWER BLACKOUT IN THE NORTH EAST) 
I HOPE SOMEONE IS KEEPING TRCK  TO SEE IF THERE ISN OT A BIGGER PROBLEM WE ARE IGNORING..

I GUESS THAT IS ONE THING  THE  GOVERNMENT  IS FOR
RIGHT..... !!!!!.....

  1. ROXANNE FIGURED OUT THE WEIGHTED KONG RIGHT AWAY AND LOVED IT. THAT'S WHY WE SENT IT. ITS SUPPOSED TO BE CHALLENGING TO KEEP THEM BUSY. THEY ARE LIKE THE OLD WEEBLE TOYS WHICH YOU BOP AROUND BUT THEY ALWAYS RIGHT THEMSELVES. AS THE DOGS BOP IT, A FEW TREATS FALL OUT. BUT IT SHOULD OCCUPY THEM AWHILE..DON'T WANT THE TREATS TO COME OUT ALL AT ONCE.
