jan 2, 2914
moving on...
****
wendy and  hunter were here yesterday for restaurant practice--- i did not go-- but megan reported wendy was perfect..   i gave them my reataurant lecture about black dog--- dark carpets in restauants-- witresses with trays held high do not look down  -- disaster in the making... so  since our dogs rarel,y fit under the table ( only because there are protruding bolts which could get hooked on harness of a tall dog)---  so we need to block traffic with extra chairs--- and if it is crowded with no extra chairs  they always have a high chair out back....
****
ear report
breath holding... i pride  goeth before a fall--- i took off boo's hat to refresh the tape - not the tape next to her skin- but i pulled off the stuff not attached to skin and replaced it-- i could not resist a photo of the perfect standing ears ----- one then-- still straight tipped sideways jst a little-- so i put the hat bck on...
ariot --- one ear this morning had  torn the tape ff the wire-- it was standing straight too    but i quickly put it back-- i just added tape-- i didn't remove anything.
a big difference between my hat   and the rest of the  world is the other way invloves removing tape--- ouch---- i always hope the origional tape i put on under anesthesia stays on  for a long time.
so far so good.

poo report
tim who had a bloody stool yesterday  passed 4 normal stools since--- so maybe whatever csued the blood went out before we stared watching... he seems fine.
*****
the bad news.... nobody is in heat--- we will be behind schedule  -- as if i didn't expect this...
*****
weather report - white stuff-- which means 2 things  
plowing - in my heated cab-- not a problem
next years calendar--- new snow-- white dog-- bailey-- william suggested the beach in th e bitter cold-- i had to nix that -- between her age- and mine  there will be no photoshoot in the bitter cold..  slightly cold with a warm car right there is  not bad... but not that chilling wind--- she is no spring chicken either...

david 1 is making progess with the dog dorm int he back room  raised beds that you cn sweep under...
*****
we really need a ups/fedex delivery shed next---  where the delivery person can reach it without getting out of the truck

when we were at dartworld ( camera mark's  company)  i saw some plastic pallets-- that could be the base-- raised about 4 feet off the ground-- snow proof and dog proof--- bentley can not mark 4 feet high... he is talented  but not 4 feet high....

i always wondered why these male dogs struggle to squirt the tree as high as possible.  are they trying to convince another dog they are a great big dog...
i have seen some very talented jack russell terriers...

someone has  told all the camera people to watch todays mail call for a surprise--   i hope someone tells me...  i don't remember forgetting anything

now there is a statement...

better quit and go p[lay in the snow...

the  i have fallen and i can't get up report

from paula
i was sick....
By Sunday i was pouring myself some gingerale and apparently passed out hitting my kitchen floor. I hit my head when i fell and since my human kids have flown the nest I was alone.I could have been there a long time , but I was awakened by a very gentle yet extremely large cold wet nose nudging my cheek. Brady was lying next to me. and Bonnie was not far away . They would never have made it as service dogs but they are my lovable loyal babies and I was so proud how far Brady has come. We know how the service dogs touch so many lives, but to the volunteers who adopt the fabs.... well they are just as special to us.So We move on to 2014 and the adventures ahead at SDP .
