THE NO WORM BIT
GEORGE SAID MAYBE IF MOM WAS ON A HEARTWORM PREVENTATIVE SHE DID NOT PASS ON ANY ROUND WORM EGGS TO HER CHILDREN-- OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT-- AT ANY RATE WE WILL WORM AGAIN...
YESTERDAY THEY GOT THEIR FIRST SHOT -- C5-- WHICH MEANS 5 THINGS LIKE DISTEMPER AND PARVO --
HOW OFTEN TO GIVE VACCINES CONTINUES TO BE DISCUSSED.. I AM NOT SURE-- SO IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE SOME CAMERA PERSON CHECK THI S OUT FOR US....THE LOGIC, I THINK IS.......
PUPS HAVE SOME IMMUNITY FROM MOM- ESPECIALLY IF SHE HAD HER "SHOTS" UP T PDATE- THE PROBLEM IS THAT IMMUNITY PREVENTS THE PUP FROM FULLY DEVELOPING THEIR OWN ( OH BOY I CAN JUST HJEAR GEORGE NOW) BUT THAT IMMUNITY RUNS OUT-- SO YOU WANT TO GIVE A SHOT AT THAT POINT-- MFG SAY 6,10, 12 AND 16 WEEKS--- THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THE 16 WEEKS-- YOU NEED A SHOT AFTER THAT POINT... AND THEN YEARLY.
SO I HEAD FOR THE 6 AND 16 WEEKS...
AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CAININE COUGH THE SURFACED IN IPSWICH DQAY CARE--- IT WAS A BIG DEAL--- SCAREY DEAL--- BUT OLD NEWS BY NOW-- AND I AM SURE IF I NEEDED TO DO SOMETHING GEORGE WOULD TELL ME..
BUDDY-- THE DONKEY--
BRIAN THE VET WAS HERE YESTERDAY TO CHECK HIM OUT- OTHER THAN PERHAPS LICE, HE FOUND NOTHING SIGNIFICANT...EXCEPT LACK OF FOOD..SLIGHTLY CONFUSING WAS THAT HIS TEETH WERE SMOOTH-- LIKE SOMEONE HAD "BEEN IN THERE WITH A FILE" IS WHAT BRIAN SAID. WHY THEY WOULD FILE HIS TEETH AND NOT FEED HIM IS A MYSTERY... AT ANY RATE-- HE IS EATING NOW...
ALSO WE CLIPPED ALOT OF HAIR OFF-- IT HAS THAT MOTH EATEN EFFECT BECAUSE WE HAD A SMALLER SET OF CLIPPERS THA IS USUAL FOR HORSE CLIPPING... THEY WORKED... BUT AFGTER ANOTHER BATH WE MIGHT GO OVER HIM AGAIN AND TRY AND SMOOTH OUT THE ODD TUFTS...
HE IS LESS OPINIONATED THAN MARY-- MIGHT WORK OUT FOR VOLUNTEERS TO CALL HIM AND TAKE HIM OUT ON A LEAD TO LET HIM GRAZE AND WANDER WITH HIM FOR 15 MINUTES MANY TIMES A DAY... WOULD BE A GOOD BREAK IN PROCEEDURE.
EARLENE SENT OUT BUNCHES OF POKERCHIPS--GUYANN MILLER DID NOT GIVE US ENOUGH ADDRESS --- SO IF YOU ARE READING THIS... OR PASS IT ON THE CONVERSATION BOARD- OR WHEREVER..
AND I HAVE BEEN INVITED TO THE MASS VETERNARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION DINNER IN THE FALL-- I AM GETTING AN AWARD--I DIDN'T ASK IF I WAS TO TALK ABOUT ANYTHING..
AHHHHHH I FOR GOT I AM TO GO TO THE GE FOR A SOMETHING BETWEEN 11 AND 1 TODAY-- MEGAN AND I WILL GO-- ALONG WITH A FEW DOGS-- LIKE MAYBE BENTLEY AND SOME PUPS...
MAYBE COLLEEN CAN MEET US??
SUSAN'S GRANDCHILDREN PUT IN A DAY YESTERDAY AND WERE HEARD TO SAY " THIS PLACE TAKES WORK"
Adventures with ELSIE: Today I was shopping with Elsie at the "Goodwill Outlet". This place is gigantic! They have racks & racks of "gently used" clothing and tons of what I sweetly call "crap-olla". When it was my turn to checkout, I told Elsie, "down, stay" and down she went. The saleswoman was new, nervous and slooooow! Two of my items had no price tags and the manager, who was the guy to fix the problem, was apparently missing in action. So, all in all, I was at the register about 8-10 minutes. The next customer was waiting patiently about 5 feet behind me. Just as I was finishing up, that lady SCREAMED....."That dog's alive!!" Well, I already knew that. But apparently, while I was juggling my checkout, she had thought Elsie was a....big ceramic dog! By now, the lady is laughing and explaining quite loudly to anyone who would listen, "I've been standing here a long time and that dog never moved! I didn't know that dog was real until she opened one eye. Elsie's response to all the hubbub? She opened two eyes. Wow, my girl gets better and better every day!
