JUNE 4 2014
THE PUPS ARE FINE..  FROM LETHARGIC TO FULL OF IT IN 12 H OURS
IT IS VERY NERVE WRACKING  THAT IS FOR SURE-- WHEN WE HAVE 11 WHO COULD DO THE SAME THING AND GET VERY SICK--  I HAD A LITTER WITH PARVO ONCE-- WHAT A MESS--- THAT IS WHY THERE IS A HOOK IN THE MIDDLE OF TH E  KITCHEN,.,..  I WAS DRIPPING FLUIDS INTO ONE PUP OR ANOTHER FOR ABOUT 72 HOURS-- BUT THEY ALL MADE IT.

I  HONESTLY DO NOT THINK I COULD GO THRU THAT AGAIN ALL BY MYSELF-- I JUST DO NOT HAVE THE PHYSICAL STRENGTH....BUT I SURE COULD SUPERVISE SOMEONE ELSE...
*************
THE THING I NOTED BIG TIME--- AND IN A  EFFORT TO EDUCATE....MOST CAMERA PEOPLE KIND OF HUNG IN THERE- AND THOUGHT ABOUT IT- MAYBE MADE A FEW  EMAIL SUGGESTIONS--- AND PRAYED...  

THEN THERE WAS A SMALL GROUP WHO NEEDED TO BLAME SOMEONE.
THOSE WERE THE  EMAILS THAT BOTHERED ME. 

 IT IS A BALANCING ACT--- YOU CAN NOT RAISE ANIMALS ( OR KIDS) IN STERILE CONDITIONS.

GRANTED  IT CERTAINLY IS A VALID STUDY TO TRY AND FIGURE OUT WHY...  I HOPE BETWEEN THE 2 VETS AND THE REST OF US, WE ARE AWARE OF SOME OF THE POSSIBLE CAUSES.... AND  SOME PROBABLY CAUSES... PLUS SOME UNUSUAL CAUSES  THAT ARE ONE TIMERS YOU COULD NOT POSSIBLY ANTICIPATE ( HE SWALLOWED THE TIP OF MY SHOE LACE)

ON TOP OF THAT  I GET THE  CREATIVE ONES 
"I KNOW IT WAS YOUR FAULT"- WHICH IF THERE IS SOMEONE AT FAULT, IT IS ULTIMATELY ME... THESE EMAILS CAN GET VERY DAMNING--- "IF ONLY YOU HAD NOT..."  

 MY FAVORITE OF ALL TIME IS THE "YOU HAD A STILLBORN PUP BECAUSE YOU WERE USING YOUR CELL PHONE TOO NEAR THE BIRTH AREA"... WHICH GOT ANSWERED BY ANOTHER PERSON " THAT IS BECAUSE YOU DID NOT WASH IT FIRST".

THESE PEOPLE NEED SOMEONE AT WHOM THEY CAN DIRECT THEIR ANGER... AND BEING IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA 24/7, UNFORTUNATELY, THAT IS ME.

FORTUNATELY I HAVE SUCH A POOR MEMORY THAT I CAN'T REMEMBER MUCH OF ANYTHING.

AND ... I DO GET A CHUCKLE OUT OF SOME... LIKE.." THE SECRET ANNOUNCEMENT WILL BE THAT THEY FOUND JIMMY HOFFA'S BODY IN THE OVERFLOW ROOM"

I CERTAINLY DO WANT INPUT--THE PHONE CALL "THERE ARE PUPS LICKING UP SOME FLUID FROM A YELLOW BOTLE INTHE ARENA" ....RIGHT ... HANG UP AND GO  ( IT WAS THE HORSE'S CORN OIL)

WHAT I DON'T NEED ARE THE  " I THINK YOU SHOULD PUT A HIGHER FENCE AROUND THE PUPS"
I HAVE AN INSTINCT TO EXPLAIN --- I DON'T WANT MOM DRAGGING HER MILK DEPArtment over A HIGHER FENCE TIL  SHE IS READY TO CLEAR IT.

THIS KIND OF THING IS TAKING TOO MUCH OF MY TIME-- SO -- PLEASE SEND ME THOSE ON POO PICKER CARDS AND I CAN  EXPLAIN QUICKER AT MAIL CALL...
*************
AND TODAY

I AM TOLD 40 PEOPLE FROM GE WILL BE HERE TO CONTRUBUTE THEIR SERVICES-- TODAY I HOPE THEY WORK ON REPLACING THE SPLIT RAILS....  AND BEFORE ANYONE EXPLAINS HOW TO DO THAT, LET ME TELL YOU  NOTHING WORKS ALL THE TIME--- THE RAILS ARE 11 FEET LONG AND THE POSTS 10'6" WITH TAPERED ENDS YOU JUST SLIDE THEM IN ... RIGHT?? IF YOU BELIEVE THAT, I HAVE A BRIDGE IN BROOKLYN TO SELL YOU.

AND MARK SAID HE WOULD BE HERE TO COOK LUNCH.
JACK SAID HE WOULD HELP SAW THE RAILS INTO SUBNMISSION

THE FRONT OF THE SHACK IS DONE AND NEEDS ABOUT 20 MINUTES BEFORE WE CAN LIFT IT INTO PLACE-- BUT THE SAW IS ELECTRIC AND IT IS RAINING... SO I WILL WAIT...

OTHER THAN THAT....

  2. I think those people who criticize and want to blame just think they are the smartest people in the world. Don't pay any attention - you are doing such a great job and letting us watch. I have learned so much from my 18 months of watching and have used your wisdom to help people I know with training their puppies. Keep on doing what you are doing and avoid the naysayers.

  3. ANYONE WHO WATCHES ON CAMERA KNOWS THAT THE WELL-BEING OF THE PUPS ALWAYS COMES FIRST WITH YOU. AND THE RESULTS IN SERVICE DOGS AND FAMILY PETS SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. IGNORE THE CRITICS.

  4. I'm sorry, Carlene, that some know-it-alls think they have to spread their "wisdom" when, obviously, they know nothing! I agree with Kate - for every one of those who criticize you, you have hundreds who fully support you and know that you are doing what is right for each of those puppies and dogs. Like water off a duck's back, let those criticisms roll away! We're with you!

  5. SOME PEOPLE ALWAYS FEEL THE NEED TO PLACE BLAME ON SOMEONE. MOST PEOPLE KNOW THAT YOU CAN TAKE ALL THE PRECAUTIONS IN THE WORLD, BUT STILL, "SH$T HAPPENS".

  6. I WOULD BET ON YOU AGAINST ANY FOE. YOU HAVE MORE COMMON SENSE AND EXPERIENCE IN YOUR LITTLE TOE THAN ANYONE I KNOW! YOU KEEP ON DOING WHAT YOU DO AND LET THEM EAT YOUR DUST.
