MANY OF THESE PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES HAVE MORE COURAGE THAN I DO... DENIM IS WITH DONNA ONLY A VERYT SHORT TIME-- SO WHEN IT CAME TO GETING ONSTAGE FOR HER SON'S EAGLE SCOUT THING, I SUGGESTED SHE LEAVE DENIM IN THE AUDIENCE AND TAKE SOMEONE'S ARM TO GET UO THE RICKITY STAIRS ON TO THE STAGE..
SHE DID NOT LISTEN AND DID FINE !!
Just wanted to let you know that this afternoon was my son's Eagle Court of Honor, and Denim did wonderful! I was even able to go up and down those rickety steps to the stage that had no hand rail!
Life with her has proved to be so wonderful! We can go for walks and I can actually look around now. I used to have to constantly watch my feet. Donna
COOKIES AND CREAM AND FAMILY ARE DOING VERY WELL-- WHY SHE DOES NOT LIKE MY SHOES I DON T KNOW.. BUT THE ONLY ONE SHE HAS BITTEN IS ME--ON MY FEET-- OTHER THAN THAT I HAVE BEEN ABOLE TO HANDLE TH EPUPS FINE.. SO HAS COLLEEN--- AND I GUESS SHE IS ACCEPTING ANNIE AS WELL
EARLENE HAD CHAOS ALL SET TO BE SPAYED, AND SHE HAS COME IN HEAT... SO THAT HAS TO BE PUT OFF.
STORY OF THE DAY----- SOMEONE ASKED HOW I CAME TO HAVE 4 DANES--- ONE STUD AND 3 FEMALSE THAT GOT BRED BY MISTAKE
AN ANIMAL CONTROL PERSON IN ANOTHER TOWN PICKED UP A HARL MALE- AND DID NOT HAVE ROOM FOR HIM IN THE TOWN CAGES-- SO SHE LEFT HIM HERE IN A HORSE STALL WITH A NOTE-- NICE DOG-- KEEP HIM... AND I DID-- HE WAS A NICE DOG-- SO I DECIDED TO BUY A DANE PUP- AND AS I LOOKED AROUND EVERY BREEDER I WENT TO BRAGGED ABOUT THE BMW BLOODLINES IN THEIR PUPS... I DECIDED I BETTER GO LOOK AT THE BMW KENNEL IN THE FIRST PLACE... IT WAS IN LONG ISLAND--
LAURA WAS THE OWNER- AND HER DOGS WERE A YARD AWAY FROM ANYTHING I HAD SEEN AROUND BOSON.. TURNS OUT SHE SHOWED THE BIG TIME AND WON WESTMINSTER WITH HER DANES... AFTER LOOKING ME OVER SWHE OPTED TO SELL ME A FEMALE MANTLE ( BLACK WITH A FULL WHITE COLLAR)
TIFFANY WAS LOVELY-- AND THE DEAL WAS LAURA WOULD PICK THE STUD IF I DECIDED TO BREED HER AND I WOULD GET HALF THE PRICE OF ANY PUP SHE HELPED SELL. FINE... WE DID THAT ---
SHE BRED TIFFANY TO HER GENETIC BROTHER :"JOHNNY" AND I HAD 8 NICE PUPS-- LAURA ADVISED ME ALONG THE WAY-- SHE CERTAINLY WAS AN EXPERT-- AT ABOUT 6 WEEKS , IN A TELEPHONE CONVERSATION I SAID I THOUGHT I WOULD KEEP ONE OF THE HARLS-- SHE QUICKLY INTERUPTED ME AND SAID I COULD NOT KEEP HIM, SHE HAD ALREADY SOLD THE ENTIRE LITTER... BUT IF I ALLOWED HER TO BREED TIF AGAIN I MAYBE... MAYBE COULD HAVE A PUP.
THAT WAS NOT HOW I HAD READ OUR AGREEMENT. IT WAS --- IF SHE SOLD ANY-- IN WRITING... I VERY QUICKLY DECIDED I WOULD KEEP THE ENTIRE LITTER... AND I DID-- THAT IS THE BUNCH IN HARNESS.... THAT I CONSTANTLY TOOK INTO BOSTON FOR CHOWDERFESTS, HARBORFETS,, 4TH OF JULY ETC... ON THE FAMOUS BED.... WHICH WE STILL HAVE....$1000 PER DAY- IT WAS FUN.
I DID SELL ONE---BUT THE REST WERE HERE...
AS LIFE WENT ON 6 OF THOSE 8 DIED WITHIN WEEKS OF EACH OTHER FROM A CONGENITAL KIDNEY PROBLEM -AT ABOUT 5 YEARS OLD.... REMEMBER TIF HAD BEEN BRED TO HER BROTHER- TEH TWO THAT WERE OK--- MAYBELINE AND DOTTY WERE EVENTUALLY BRED BY ME AND "DEVELOPED" MY OWN STYLE BY IMPORTING STUDS FROM EUROPE. EVENTUALLY LAURA FORGAVE ME AND DECIDED I KNEW WHAT I WAS DOING
EVEN TODAY 25 YEARS LATER, MOST OF THE WELL BRED DANES IN THIS COUNTRY HAVE ALOT OF BMW BLOODLINES IN THEM.. AND LAURA HAS SINCE DIED.
SHE HAD SOME GREAT DOGS... AND NAMES FOR THEM-- SERINDIPITY, PANDYMONIUM, .. I HAVE A COPY OF HER HAND WRITTEN BLOODLINES -- SHE INTERBRED CONSTANTLY-
