FROM OUR LATEST PARTNERSHIP
Hello from PA!
Khaki did amazing traveling. He has settled in quickly he acts as though he's always lived here. I have to share this.... I needed to pee bad we pull in a rest area. The handicap bathroom being used...I can't wait. Khaki to big for stall sooo I place him in a down and stay position. The handicap door opens to which I hear as I start my business....ahhhhh what a cute puppy! khaki is peering under the stall watching me. 2 small feet stop and this little face looks under the stall and says to khaki " whatcha looking at doggie" and she smiles at me and says "hey lady can I pet your puppy". I'M LIKE HUH... HUH..SWEETIE CAN I FINISH PEEING..... AND NO YOU CAN'T PET MY PUPPY! I can tell I'm in for a real funny adventure with my new buddy! Talk to you soon
Marsha and khaki
OK... SO NOW A REAL PROBLEM/PUZZLE
]WE HAD A VERY BAD SCENE here YESTERDAY
#1 FACT OF THE CASE--- I AM MORE THAN SLIGHTLY DEAF
I WAS SIDETRACKED WITH GETTING THE CAMERA FUNCTIONING-- AND THE ramifications of having sound...... PLUS I WAS TO FINISH THE $%$^&* 990 FOR THIS %^&(( ACCREDITATION.
secondly----bud 2 speaks very quietly
he came in and sat down with a story about digging and a hole-- he did n't realize those were the only 2 words i caught.. so when i asked a question i got semi silly answers.. when i said "wait a minute just answer ---what hole where" he said he would ask megan. and left...
so all i had to go on is digging hole ask megan and they just don't go together in any way i could figure. so i got on a golf cart and caught up with him by the laundry.. where my new tractor (aka very useful new toy of which i am slightly protective yet) sat with back hoe extended over the place we usually wash dogs.
by now i am very confused , somewhat annoyed and paying attention--- bud said he was just uncovering the hole to clean the llint from the washer filter. i said there is no filter-- he just plain did not agree.. there was a green cover over a hole which had the filter . i tried to explain no filter, no green cover, no hole.-- he tried to explain yes filter. i tried to explain --- if anyone had asked me i could explain-- i was here-- and had not forgotten everything... by now he is into just how stupid can i be...there has to be a filter underneath the dog washing place.
not while i have lived here...
i came back to the house and david filled me in.
it was like the game of gossip paul told charile and charlie told bud-- and somewhere a few details got left out.
as i remember.. the problem is gravity-- and water not wanting to run uphill..
the commercial washer drain is low and could only run straight out the drain in the floor-- which was put there when there was only a dish washing sink using it.... it then runs into a 6' round drywell out by the puppy hill fence. this dry well was woefully inadequate and i spent $27,000 on a huge flat drywell system n the parking lot-- off that origional drywell.....the whole time we were dealing in inches to get a pipe to run and drain before the water table etc....
when they put that in jeff masterson ( construction) said the 6' would act like a catch and would fill up with hair eventually-- i said when it did we would just have to have it pumped..
this could be where we are .... but i asked megan to get a snake at home depot.. she came back with a 3'snake when we need a 20 ' one...
i would still like to try the snake before i call the pumper guy.
in the meantime .. use the barn washer
and why would anyone ask megan about hole digging?
she is not even 27 years old and i bet she does not know the only place you can dig a hole in this weather is under the manure pile.
one other animal quickie
this new horse-- apparently friendly but seems scared... i have not even met her yet... but i will bet $2 that she is scared because she doe s not know what is expected of her-- so when approaching aks her to whoa .. she knows that command.. i bet she would be more relaxed if you told her what to do.
that works with dogs too -- they do not deal well with confusion... so tell them something.
