JULY 14 2014
SUNDAY WAS A LOVELY DAY   STARTING WITH  TRASH DUMP--
 NOTHING BROKE , FELL OFF , OR MALFUNCTIONED.... A  GREAT DAY..

A TRIP TO THE TRASH DUMP  CAUSES THE SAME RELIEF AS HAVING A LAXATIVE FINALLY WORK.

THE TRAILER WAS PILED HIGH WITH A SOFA OR TWO, A BATHTUB.  UNKNOWN NUMBER OF DAY CARE BEDS ( THE PRE KURANDA KIND) AND THE  CONTENTS OF THE NUTT HOUSE......  ALL CAREFULLY TIED DOWN.. I TRAVELED TH EBACK ROADS TO AVOID RT 95 WITH  THAT MESS...

THE HYDROLIC LIFT WORKED SO WE COULD UNLOAD IT MINUS ANY REAL EFFORT-- 
THEN TO HOME DEPOT TO GET THE PLYWOOD FOR GRACE'S ROOM..  BECAUSE I COULD NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO TIE IN THE SHEETS OF PLYWOOD, I BOUGHT 4 POSTS AND CONCRETE FOR THE BIRD HOUSE PROJECT TO WEIGH THE PLYWOOD DOWN.

NOW THE PROBLEM WITH  WHERE, HOW HIGH, FACING WHICH DIRECTION-- ALL STARTS AS WE HAVE ALL OF THEM IN THE T TENT.
************

 WE HAVE 4 CP'S IN THE TEEPEE--
DYING TO GO SEE HOW THEY FARED.
I TOLD THEM THEY COULD GO SLEEP IN ANY OF THE OTHER BUILDINGS ( SOFA'S ) ALSO
BUT I HOPE THEY ARE PURISTS AND TRY LIFE ON THE PRAIRE STUFF.

SCARLOTT  RAN OFF YESTERDAY CAUSING FAR MORE CONFUSION THAN IS NECESSARY..
PROBLEM WAS  SHE WAS WEARING AN ELECTRIC  UNDERGROUND FENCE COLLAR-- FOR WHICH  ( IT IS MY CONTENTION ) SHE DOES NOT HAVE THE TRAINING OR TEMPERAMENT TO DEAL WITH THE ELECTRIC SHOCK.
PROVEN BY THE FACT THAT SHE RAN OFF.

STARTING A LARGE PROBLEM HERE WITH ----WHO ... HOW... WHEN... AND WHY... YOU  START LOOKING FOR A MISSING DOG...
YOU START BY NOTIFYING THE POLICE AND ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER-- ( PAID FOR BY YOUR TAXES-- SO PUT THEM TO WORK...)   THEN YOU  HAVE SOMEONE WALK YOUR USUAL DAILY PATH WITH ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER AND DOG IF AVAILABLE..

THEN CRUISE AROUND IN  YOUR FAMILY  CAR-- OR 2 CARS IF AVAILABLE...-- THE SOUND OF WHICH THE DOG IS FAMILIAR... AND AS YOU CRUISE, YOU ASK ALL EXERCISING JOGGERS AND CYCLERS TO NOTIGY THE POLICE IF THEY SEE     XXXXXX ----IN THIS CASE A HUGE GREY DOG.

AS WORRISOME AS IT IS, IT HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE THAT LOST DANES ARE INCLINED TO LAND ON SOMEONE'S FRONT LAWN AND JUST  WAIT TIL SOMEONE CALLS THEM A TAXI.

"BROWNIE"  A HUGE MERLE- WALKED OFF ONE DAY AND I GOT A CALL FROM THE TOPSFIELD POLICE
 "  WE JUST HAD A STRANGE CALL FROM  THE RESIDENT AT BLUEBERRY LANE ABOUT A MOOSE  LYING IN THERI FRONT YARD... IT HAS TO BE ONE OF YOUR DOGS."
IT WAS BROWNIE.. LOVELY DOG.

THERE ARE MANY TIMES I ABSOLUTELY PANIC-- THE WORST IS WHEN TH E ICE ON HOOD POND IS  NOT QUITE THICK ENOUGH-- AND I WORRY THE DOGS MIGHT GET ON THE FAR SIDE AND TRY AND CROSS THE LAKE TO COME HOME. 
I REALLY DON'T THINK ANYONE WOULD TRY AND STEAL A 150 POUND DANE.. BUT THAT DOES CROSS MY MIND TOO...

SCARLEOTT CAME HOME AND ALL IS WELL-- I STRONGLY SUGGESTED THEY  NOT USE THE  ELECTRIC COLLAR ON HER EVER AGAIN

 PROPERLY USED THEY ARE INVALUABLE-- BUT NOT DONE CORRECTLY YOU CAN END UP WITH AN IDIOT OF A DOG.

************
I HAVE TO GO SEE IF THE PEOPLE IN THE TEEPEE SURVIVED...

THEY COULD BE ON CAMERA.TOO
