jan 19 2014

happy 19th of the month--  there-- that takes care of all the happy's i was supposed to remember for january

991 bricks to go-- those $10 donations are our lifeblood-- 
and besides you might be invited into the most exclusive and restricted   SHATUPON SOCIETY OF IPSWICH...

I REMEMBER A LINE FROM  "AUNTIE MAME "  ---EXCLUSIVE  OF WHAT AND RESTRICTED TO WHOM?----

well i did get some of the package receiving "house"  done yesterday... in the living room/office/ by the fireplace.... so what's a little sawdust.???. it sweeps...  the fact that steve  and then jack appeared was a pleasent surprise... if it was not quite s slusshy  i might have even got it done today..  might still  if i can get p[aul to put those fork lift things on the4 tractor.. i could put it together i the alleyway of the barn-- then carry it up to the it's place pf importance opposite the "button"

i could put it together in my usual fashion---- tie it toTHE STALL FRONT   using hay string ---- leaves lots of wiggle room for those things i should have measured twice.

with difficulty steve found my dremmel-- small saw thing---- that is very handy with it's 4" blade--( recommended by caw)

*****************
i am amazed we are still gettng calendar  and book orders.. theresa even gave me a monkey fist list- so we are still selling those.  PLUS AN ORDER FOR ONE VIAL OF PUPPY BREATH....  

 we cAME TO A  COUPLE BOXES OF CALENDARS WE DIDN'T KONW WE HAD-- I THINK I MAY MAIL THEM OUT TO RANDOM CHICKEN  NUMBER PARTICIPANTS-- IF THEY ALREADY HAVE ONE THEY CAN THEN GIVE THEM  TO SOMEONE ELSE????  THEY ARE A THING OF BEAUTY...

IF I GIVE 10 ENVELOPES TO A VOLUNTEER-- PLUS THE BOOK O F CHJICKEN PARTICIPANTS AND JUST LET THEM RANDOMLY PICK---  THAT IS AS GOOD A WAY AS ANY.

**************
SUNDAY STEWING DAY

I READ ALL THE BECAUSE LETTERS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT-- AND SEVERAL PEOPLE MENTIONED HOW WONDERFUL THE CHICKEN STEW ( THE FOOD) WAS..  IT IS A MISSERABLE DAY FOR OUTDOOR LIVING  SO MAYBE A POT OF STW WOULD BE GOOD. ( AND EASY)  IT DOES TASTE BETTER  OVER THE OPEN FIRE... BUT...

*************
I Have GEORGE TO THANK FOR  THE MASS  VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION  AWARD...

2013 Merit Award
Award for Animal Welfare & The Human/Animal Companion Bond
Award for Service Animals
Carlene White
Founder, The Service Dog Project

IT IS PARTICULARLY TIMELY  AS THERE ARE A FEW ASKING WHY ARE YOU BREEDING DOGS... THERE ARE TOO MANY ALREADY...   MY  ---AND OUR- PROBLEM IS WE NEED  SQUARE CHUNKY STRONG DOGS--- NOT THE  TALL  GRACEFUL SHOW DOGS-   I AM AFRAID IF WE PUT BENTLEY IN THE SHOW RING  THE SHOW CROWD WOULD LAUGH  AT HIM -- WELL JUST AFTER HE LIFTED HIS LEG ON SOME JUDGE TO MARK HIM... WHO COULD BLAME THEM. ---MY VARIETY OF DANE HAS BEEN CALLED A "PIECE OF JUNK  WITH NO LEG AND STUBBY NECK" 
 RIGHT...
BUT NONE OF MY DOGS EVER ENTER THE GENERAL DOG POPULATION--  THEY ARE SERVICE DOGS OR FABULOUS FAILURES  PLACED BY US AS THERAPY DOGS.. YOU CAN NOT HAVE ONE OF OUR DOGS AND EXPECT TO LEAVE IT HOME ON THE SOFA---
 FIRST PROBLEM IS THEY WOULD PROBABLY EAT THE SOFA FOR AMUSEMENT..

THESE ARE WORKING DOGS WHO NEED A JOB.

AND I MUST ADMIT  I HAD NOT LOOKED CAREFULLY AT BOO AND ARIOT'S SIBLINGS-- THEY ARE SPECTACULAR ---  HEAVY BONED--- CLEVER ON THEIR   FEET   AND JUST AS NICE -- THEY ARE ACTUALLY NICER  CONFORMATION THAN BOO OR ARIOT...

I FEEL MUCH BETTER ABOUT THE "DANISH CONNECTION"   
NOW IF WE COULD JUST PROVE  LIVE SPERM OUT OF WALTER--  WE ARE NOT TOO SURE  WHO FATHERED THE LAST TIME WE BRED HIM... IF I REMEMBER ... HE QUIT... AND WE HAD TO ASK BENTLEY--- THEN WE THOUGHT MAYBE WALTERS ONE EFFORT "TOOK"  OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT...  
THE SECOND PROBLEM IS WE NEED TO HAVE SOMEONE SET UP THE MICROSCOPE TO BE READY TO  LOOK----  AS FOR THE FIRST PROBLEM, I WILL LEAVE THE COFFEE CUP PROCESS TO YOUR IMAGINATION --  AND YOU COULD NOT POSSIBLY IMAGINE THE LAST FIASCO WITH MARIA, MEGAN AND I....

GO FOR IT...

hi Carlene
Tuesday we went to the hospital while Melanie had a surgical procedure done. 
Lola was beyond wonderful! 

The doctors and nurses all commented on how well behaved she was and all came by 
to see the "beautiful" dog in pre-op. Lola was so quiet that a nurse came in to 
get Melanie ready for her IV and jumped out of her skin to see a giant fury face 
in the room!

We showed many of them the explore cameras and told them all about SDP. Melanie 
said they were even talking about Lola in the recovery room when she got out of 
surgery!

We were at the hospital for 4 hours. Spending so much time sitting makes my body 
really shaky and my legs give out more often and Lola was on top of her game. 
She's even been getting really good at stopping the tremors in my arms and legs. 
She walks right over and puts her head on my leg and keeps it there until the 
tremors stop. If I'm walking she wraps her body around my leg. The pressure 
really helps the tremors.

Today we had to run some errands and while we were at the bank a woman asked us 
if Lola was one of Carlene White's dogs. She said you were one of her Girl Scout 
leaders when she was a kid :)

I also wanted to let you know that my neurologist has been really impressed with 
my improvement since getting Lola. So much so that her office called me this 
week to ask some questions about SDP because she feels some of her patients 
would greatly benefit from one of your dogs!!

Hope all is well with you all and hope to see you soon!

Michelle and Lola
