JAN 9 2014
MARIA   maria@servicedogproject.org  IS TRYNG TO GET US ORGANIZED...  

TO THAT END  WE NEED TO HAVE A VOLUNTEER SIGNED UP RELIABLY TO BE "CLUBHOUSE , CAMERA  AND PUPPY  MANAGER"  THE ONLY OTHER CHORE MIGHT BE TO TAKE HOUSE LAUNDRY TO THE LAUNDRY IN THE GOLF CART WHILE PUPS ARE SLEEPING   AND BRNG IT BACK AND FOLD IT HERE -- 

THIS PLACE HAS TURNED INTO AN ENJOYABLE CLUBHOUSE--- WHICH IS FINE-- BUT THERE IS  A DIRT FACTOR WHICH MUST BE DEALT WITH-- LIKE SODA CANS AND WATER BOTTLES.

EARLENE WAS HERE LAST NIGHT  AND SHE DECIDED TO REALLY SWEEP THE FLOOR-- LOTS OF PEOPLE SWEEP THE FLOOR... BUT HERE IS ONE MORE THING AT WHICH EARLENE EXCELLS  ALONG WITH HAIR MANAGMENT....... FLOOR SWEEPING-- SHJE GOT ABOUT 1/2 A BUCKET ... WELL NEARLY... SURE LOOKED LIKE IT.

IF THAT PERSON COULD KEEP US GOING STRAIGHT  THEN THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE ON PAID STAFF COULD GET THEIR WORK DONE.

WE NEED A SIGN UP SHEET-- AND IF YOU CAN NOT MAKE IT ... YOU FIND SOMEONE TO FILL THE SLOT...

 WE ARE A BIG DEAL NOW.. SO WE NEED TO GET ORGANIZED...  
WE HAVE JOINED THE  REAL WORLD--- HOWEVER THAT DOES NOT MEAN WE WILL MARCH IN CIRCLES TO TRAIN DOGS...  OUR METHODS WILL -- CONTINUE.. EXCEPT I WILL ADD AN EARLY MORNING (9:15 SORT OF) SESSION OF WHITE/?DEAF? DOG TRAINING.. HERE IN THE ( WARM ) HOUSE.

SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE SENT ME ARTICLES ON HOW TO TRAIN A DEAF DOG- AND THEY ARE FULL OF IDEAS-- PROBLEM IS  YOU NEED A DIFFERENT ARTICLE FOR EACH DOG---


 BOTH THESE 2 WHITE DOGS ARE NOT STUPID... MIGHT BE A BIT EASIER IF THEY WERE..

THE PROBLEM WITH PREPROGAMED TRAINING  WHICH IS IN NUMEROUS BOOKS  ---- THERE IS ENTIRELY TOO MUCH 
 "IF YOU DO THIS... THAT WILL HAPPEN"    
AND THEN IT DOESN'T HAPPEN.

START WITH
WHITE DOGS ARE DEAF-- UNLESS THEY HAVE SOME BLACK ON THEIR HEAD/EARS ..

 BOO IS WHITE   AND HAS NO BLACK NEAR HER HEAD  SO SHE  WOULD BE DEEMED DEAF---  AND RIOT-- WITH THE BLACK   WOULD BE THE ONE WHO COULD HEAR.
WELL THAT IS BACKWARDS... BOO   IS A SPOILED CUTE PUP WITH SELECTIVE HEARING...
RIOT IS A HYPERACTIVE PUP WHO IS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS HAPPENING..  SHE IS TRYING--- BUT NEEDS CONSTANT AMUSEMENT....LIKE BOX CHEWING... UNLESS SLEEPY.

 I HAD A PLAN-- WHICH YOU ALL SAW ME START -- OF BEING ABLE TO CALL ONE PUP AT A TIME-- BOO WITH MY VOICE  THEN RIOT WITH THE FLYSWATTER WITH  THE WHITE KLEENEX.

IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY FOR ONE DAY  WHEN BOO SAID "WAIT A MINUTE SHE GETS FED WITH THE FLY SWATTER WAGGING..."

RIOT GOT THE IDEA OF PICKING UP THE DARLING BASKET SOMEONE GAVE ME  TIL SHE GOT HER FOOT IN IT AND PICKED IT UP ANYWAY-- THUS REMOVING THE HANDLE..   SO I NEED ANOTHER BASKET.. OR 2   OR 3  THIS COULD BE A LONG PROCESS..

SO I CAN NOT WORK WITH ONE UNLESS I JAIL THE OTHER... AND RIOT SEES THE X-PEN FENCING AS SOMETHING  TO JUST SHOVE AROUND WITH YOUR BATTERING RAM OF A HEAD GEAR.... THIUS DISRUPTING MAIL CALL. BY KNOCKING OVER THE CAMERA..

AND YOU CAN NOT YELL   "NO"   SHE CAN'T HEAR THAT-- AND IF SHE IS NOT LOOKING AT YOU  , YOU COULD STAND ON  YOUR HEAD AND SHE WILL NOT REACT.

SO I AM WORKING ON IT... I HAVE TRAINED DEAF DOGS BEFORE.. ONE AT A TIME... WITH THIS I HAVE THE INFLUENCE OF BOO  WHO CAN HEAR.. AND RIOT HAS ALREADY DEMO'D THAT SHE  IS ATTACHED TO  BOO FOR AMUSEMENT AND BITEY FACE-- SO WHEN I TAKE HER ALONE, THER IS AN ELEMENT  OF "WHERE'S BOO?"  SCREWING UP MY PLANS.. IT MAY TAKE A WHILE TO GET OVER THAT...

 SO WHEN TRACY AND MARIA FINISH FEEDING THE PUPS  I WILLHAVE AT IT AGAIN...

  1. I was wondering if there was an element of Ariot needing to be within sight of Boo. Thanks for the backstory.
