mar 26, 2014
lively day ahead....

chris-- new volunteer - with mother at brooksby  wanted to take a dog to brooksby to visit-- should be no problem --- we have been going there monthly for years... like maybe 7 years??

however-- there is a new secretary who just happened to read the rules about pets visiting... so  now they want current rabies certificate (from the vet office not our copy )- health certificate and  stool samples- monthly--  proof of insurance-- and the handler has to go to indoctrination lecture.

i spent quite a bit of time on the phone with her ... and then she sent  a long list of things she needed to allow the dogs to continue to go to brooksby...... i honestly thought she  was doing me the favor of letting us visit the residents..

 i don't know what the 1/2 hour lecture is that she wanted all of us to sit thru--- 

i did one of those once -- at addison gilbert hospital in newbury-- 1/2 hour of how  and why to wash your  hands... 

so we are not doing that  brooksby visit today ...  i could push it and  go with bentley as my service dog---  but  maybe i should let it "ride"
*****
chris and i will find something else to do---
like go to lowes and get a water test kit... ( with dogs in training)--

even if shelia is not interested-- by now i am curious---  there is a house in boxford  next to the dpw shed where they keep salt--- -  rumor has it the well is contaminated with salt from the dpw....

i have trouble with that --- i know 15-20 years ago the feds? insisted on sheds over dpw salt piles---  and i wonder if t his is not a case of  gossip gone wrong..  i am curious..  my curiosity will cost me $17. 
*************
and then there is susan about to arrive at 1:30 at logan-- i forget from where-- she is  a camera person  who will be renting a car and coming here for a few days to volunteer  - stayng  on the property.. somewhere .... and jacky-- another cp is coming ?? maybe friday for 4 days too?? jacky has been here often before... she cooks... wowowowowowo
**********
and noel is smiling--- not doing a darn thing otherwise...  i did feel bumping  - so i think all is well-- she does not look like the beached whale that others have resembled...  so i am not looking for 10 pups 
her temp fluctuating arouind 100-101-- no drop yet....  but we have establshed her normal temp.

**************
noel is a very sweet dog--- she just asked to go out-- pam has gone with her--- because sweet or not  she would be a b#tch to drag out from under the porch in  the spiders--- and  rain... or whatever---

*******
experience comes from bad experiences...

  1. I AM SHOCKED AT THE ATTITUDE OF THE SECRETARY IN THE NURSING HOME - OR WHATEVER IT IS.. YOU COULD PROBABLY GIVE THEM A LECTURE OF AT LEAST HALF AN HOUR ON HOW IT WORKS; AND WITHOUT ALL THAT SILLY PAPERWORK..
    WHY DO YOU GUYS NEED A RABIES VACCINATION?? WE ONLY GET THAT FOR OUR DOGS IF/WHEN WE WANT TO TAKE THEM OUT OF THE COUNTRY!! IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE, I SEE NO REASON WHATSOEVER FOR RABIES AS LONG AS YOU STAY IN THE COUNTRY... BUT THEN I AM NO EXPERT.. DOUBT WHETHER THE SECRETARY IS... YUK TO PAPERWORK AND STICKLERS..
