mar 9 2014
A VERY ACTIVE NIGHT....
I GOT UP FOR MY USUAL MIDNIGHT SNACK ONLY TO FIND ALL THE COMMENTS ABOUT HOW HORRID WE WERE BECAUSE NUTMEG WAS FORCED TO LIE  IN VOMIT AND WOULD SMELL BAD TODAY.  

I "MOVED QUICKLY IN TO THE KITCHEN"    IN MY LESS THAN BEAUTIFUL JAMMIES-- SAW A BROWN SMUDGE -- STARTED TO FOLD IT IN TO THE CENTER TO PICK IT UP... AND IT WAS THE PATTERN IN THE BLANKET... NOT VOMIT.. I FELT NUTMEG ALL OVER.. DRY /CLEAN  SO I CAME BACK TO THE COMPUTER   AND RAZZED EVERYONE ABOUT IT... AS I WAS DOIUING THAT DONNA WANDERED INTO THE KITCHEN AND FOUND A SMALL DAMP SPOT... WHICH MUST HAVE BEEN  THE REMAINS OF WHAT SOMEONE SAW...

SO LET ME FILL IN THE DETAILS

A VOMITING DANE IS NOT  NECESSARILY SICK..... THEY HAVE A BELLY REJECTION MODE WHERE THEY THROW UP THE CONTENTS, LOOK IT OVER AND EAT MOST BACK AGAIN LEAVING OUT THE PART THEY WERE REJECTING..

SOMETIMES THEY SHARE IT WITH FRIENDS.....

 OFTEN BEING VOMIT AGGRESSIVE.. AS IN "DON'T TOUCH THAT VOMIT -- IT  WAS MY DINNER AND I AM JUST SAVING IT TIL LATER"

THEY DO LEARN THIS AS PUPS  --- BECAUSE MOMMY'S BRING HOME FOOD FOR THE PUPS ... HALF DIGESTED.. THEN THROW IT UP FOR THE PUPS TO EAT...
SO THE SOUND OF A GAGGING DOG WILL OFTEN BRING  A BUNCH OF DOGS FROM ALL OVER THE FARM  -  SIMILAR TO THE ARRIVAL OF TH E POSTMAN WITH A BOX CLEARLY LABELED "WHOOPIE PIES"

AT ANY RATE  WHATEVER CQME OUT OF HER, WENT BACK IN  LEAVING A DAMP SPOT IN THE MIDDLE OF A DARK BROWN PATTERN IN THE FLUFFY....

AS FOR HER BEING "FORCED TO LIE IN VOMIT "  THAT CONCEPT MUST HAVE COME FROM SOMEONE WHO KEEPS DOGS IN CRATES  BECAUSE IF NUTMEG WAS AT ALL UNHAPPY ABOUT  WHATEVER SHE WAS LYING IN ---- MOMMY ONLY TAKES UP 1/3 OF THE SOFA WHICH WAS AN EASY CRAWL AWAY... 
SHE HAD OTHER CHOICES...

SO DONNA CHANGED THE FLUFFY  AND  WHOEVER WAS UPSET QUIETED DOWN..

AND I WAS JUST BRAGGING ABOUT HOW FAR ALL YOU CP's HAVE COME SINCE CHAOS FIRST LITTER...  WHEN SOME CONCERNED PERSON  CALLED ME AT 2AM TO REPORT A BIRD WAS FLYING AROUND  INTHE KENNEL.

THAT- ALONG WITH A BIT OF  RE-INGESTED FOOD  DOES NOT RISE TO THE LEVEL OF "THE BARN JUST FELL OVER..."    IF THAT HAPPENS... CALL ME..

IN ALL ANIMAL MANAGEMENT THERE HAS TO BE A  PRIORITIZING ... WHICH LOOKS AT ANY SITUATION AND CALCULATES  -- HOW FAST DO I NEED TO RESPOND  ... IF I DON'T MOVE QUICKLY .. IS THE SITUATION GOING TO GET ANY WORSE??? OR CAN I MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE AT ALL--

THAT LAST PERTAINS TO MANY VETERNARIAN DECISIONS...  
I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES GEORGE HAS SAID TO ME "WE NEED TO ESTABLISH A DIAGNOSIS"   AND I HAVE ASKED "WHY... IT IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE OUR COURSE OF ACTION"

CURRENT CASE IN  POINT - WE DID HAVE AN ULTRASOUND DONE TO ESTABLISH NOEL IS PREGNANT...  THE CP"S LIKE TO KNOW... AND YOU ALL  PAID FOR IT...  BUT IT DID NOT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE IN  THE WAY SHE IS FED/HANDLED--  SHE IS WELL FED AND ON  A  VITAMIN PILL A DAY....

 IF WE WAITED A COUPLE WEEKS WE WOULD HAVE KNOWN THE OLD FASHION WAY..    A BIGGGGGG TUMMY.

SO MANY TIMES  IN MEDICINE- BOTH HUMAN AND ANIMAL  YOU DO ALL SORTS OF TESTS AND ARE BASICALLY LEFT WITH " IT IS EITHER GOING TO GET BETTER OR WORSE"

SPEAKING OF GETTTING BETTER.... STEVE MADE A NICE RAMP FOR BAILEY TO GET IN MY NEW CAR.... IT IS MUCH HIGHER... AND HER REAR IS NOT 100%...(  UNLESS SHE IS GOING UP AND DOWN THE A- FRAME IN THE ARENA TO GET THE BEST OF CHAOS)  SO I WILL NOW CARRY   A SHORT CARPETED RAMP FOR HER...

EDUCATION   IS A GOOD THING--- IT IS A VERY NARROW RAMP S O IT FITS BEHIND THE SEAT... SINCE SHE HAS HAD EXTENSIVE TRAINING IN TREE/ LADDER  CLIMBING  SHE SHOULD BE ABLE  TO  POP UP THAT RAMP AND HAVE MUCH MORE FUN RIDING AROUND IN MY CAR.

I TOLD MY KIDS THAT -- THE MORE EDUCATION YOU GET -- THE MORE FUN YOU STAND A CHANCE OF ENJOYING... 

 WITH A PHD YOU CAN SMILE AS YOU MUCK STALLS.
*********
STEWING TODAY...
RUMOR HAS IT EARLENE IS HAVING A BABY... WELL.. A GRANDCHILD? IS HAVING A BABY.. SO SHE MAY OR MAY NOT MAKE AN APPEARENCE...

AND I PLAN TO CLEAN OUT THE FREEZER  AND COOK IT .. THE PROCESS IS "ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE CHICKENS"

MY COMPUTER LEAPED FORWARD FOR ME... AND MY CLOCK SAYS SUNDAY
SO I AM SET TO GO.

THT PERFECT HOUSE  I WASS HOPING SHELIA AND BRIAN WOULD BUY HAS 30 PAGES OF  CONSERVATION /HISTORICAL RESTRICTIONS-- EVEN TO CHANGING THE SHUTTERS... AND  A YEARLY "INSPECTION" ---- IT WAS STARTED IN THE 1700'S AND FINISHED  N 1818.. SO NOW IT IS HISTORIC-- AND EVEN THO IT IS TUCKED WAY BACK IN THE WOODS, THE TOWN HAS THE RIGHT TO  CONTROL THE TYPE NAILS USED TO PUT ON SHINGLES !
WITH IT'S 34 ACRES  IT  SOUNDS GREAT--- TIL YOU FIND THAT YOU MUST PUT  A MAT OUTSIDE THE  DOOR THAT SAYS "WELCOME"  AND NOT ANY OF THE OTHER  MORE CONTEMPORARY VERSIONS ... LIKE "GO AWAY"

TRYING TO DEAL WITH TOWN OFFICIALS  HAS NEVER BEEN MY FORTE....
  I REMEMBER THE  IPSWICH  BUILDING INSPECTOR TELLING ME I WAS OUT OF MY LEAGUE.. I WAS ONLY A WOMAN.,

DID ANYONE THINK I WOULD FORGET THAT?

    Too bad the building inspector wasn't able to stand there and enjoy watching one of the danes regurg... and re-eat.... that would have said all Carlene was thinking...
