JULY 15 2014
PEEING  IS THE  TOPIC THIS MORNING...  THANKS TO PAM... WHO HAS 2 BRILLIANT DEAF DOGS WHO DO ALL KINDS OF THINGS-- ONE OF THEM BEING USING A PEEPAD AT 4AM SO SHE DOES NOT HAVE TO GET UP.. 
THIS HAS BEEN A DREAM OF MINE...  DIAMONDS MAY BE A GIRLS BEST FRIEND--- BUT A DOG THAT PEES  ETC...  ON A PEE PAD-- AND KNOWS WHY THEY ARE DOING THAT ... IS A DREAM OF MINE.

JUST THINK OF THE RAMIFICATIONS OF BEING IN A HOTEL AT 2AM  AND HAVING TH E DOG "USE" THE  REST ROOM... OR AN AIRPORT-- OR A DOG WITH A PROBLEM SAY "I HAVE TO GO NOW"  ( I KNOW ALL ABOUT THAT AT THE MOMENT)

I HAVE HEARD SEVERAL PEOPLE AT THE ADI CONFERENCE TELL OF HOW THEIIR SERVICE  DOGS DO THAT-- AND THEY JUST "FLUSH THE SOLIDS"  IF NEEDED.

THE WORMS AND BACTERIA OF THE WORLD WOULD BE DELIGHTED  WITH THE WHOLE NEW DIET.

PAM IS REDOING THE VOLUNTEER LIFE AS WE KNEW IT
****** 

AND I AM GOING TO THE T TENT AND SEE IF THE LIGHTS ARE ON THERE... WOULDN'T THAT BE WONDERFUL IF WE COULD AT LEAST GET PICTURE BACK AGAIN...  JON USED THE WORD "UNREACHABLE"

THIS IS MY QUEST... TO FOLLOW THAT WIRE NO MATTER HOW HOPELESS --NO MATTER HOW FAR - TO FIGHT FOR THAT LIGHT -WITH OUT QUESTION OF WOES -- TO BE WILLING TO MARCH INTO HE// FOR  A HEAVENLY CAUSE --TO REACH THE UNREACHABLE  PIECE OF KNOWLEDGE THAT WILL MAKE THE CAMERA WORK AGAIN...


Good morning.. rogue is doing great. Adjusting great! She over comes things that are uncertain to her quickly so far. She still doesn't really like water that moves like from the hose or bath tub faucet. I used to let annie drink from the faucet in restrooms when we were out shopping because annie loved fresh water and would stand there drinking from the hose. But rogue doesn't like it .. that's ok I have a travel water bowl. Interesting getting to know rogue and her little fears but mostly she overcomes really quick.she is a wonderful dog! 

She did really well shopping. I kept the kids in the shopping cart and they are not allowed to touch her while in stores. And they did good about it and told everyone they can't touch rogue while she is working! So far no issues that I have not been able to help her through. Communication is getting better and she let's me know what she needs.. she nudges me with her nose alot.
 I realized john won't be home until thursday. Is it okay if I come Thursday without the kids to the farm instead of tuesday? I really prefer not to bring the kids with me. If I bring the kids I would be so focused of them and not on training. Please let me know if Thursday will be ok. If not I can come tomorrow with the kids.

I know you wanted to start with the responding to the door bell soon. Not sure when u wanted to practice with her or maybe show me what to do. I can't hear the bell. I was thinking to try to teach her but not sure how if I can't hear it. Oh I just had an idea.. wonder if I put a door bell sound on my cell phone and every once in a while I push it and if she comes to give her a treat right away? Wonder if that would work. She comes when I whistle. Just to apply that to the bell.. should I try ? Let me know your thoughts. Also let me know if Thursday is okay to come instead of Tuesday because I really not want to bring the kids while training.
Sorry so long.
