FIRST BLOOD TEST ON OPAL IS DUE THIS MORNING---
AND THE SPERM IS IN TH EMAIL ----(THAT IS A NEW ONE...)
PLAN IS TO DO ANOTHER BLOOD TOMORROW DEPENDING ON WHAT THIS ONE IS...
A LONG TIME AGO I THOUGHT IDEXX HAD A GOOD THING GOING..-- THEY HAVE A BOX OUTSIDE VETS OFFICES- AND TWICE A DAY A CURRIER PICKS UP ALL THE SAMPLES TAKES THEM TO A CENTRAL LAB-- WHICH EMAILS BACK THE RESULTS WITHIN A FEW HOURS.
BUD AND MAROON ARE DOING VERY WELL-- THEY WENT TO THE HOSPITAL AN D DID ELEVATORS, STEPS AND FALLIN G DOWN..
HE WILL BE HERE ANOTHER DAY OR SO--- MAROON IS A YOUNG DOG- AND NEEDS MILES... BUT BUD HAD GONE MILES ALREADY SO HE MAY AS WELL BE THE ONE..
My Maude, has gone to greet her Merle sisters in the great doggie beyond. Her doctor was so good to come here to my home, to Maude's personal space, her cave, as we affectionately called it (my closet), to end her suffering. In the past month Maude declined quite significantly. However, regardless of her physical decline, she felt a strong responsibility to be the ever caring working dog. Following me from room to room no matter how difficult it was for her.She had become increasingly incontinent despite the Proin, and she was becoming quite unhappy with this turn. I never once reprimanded her, yet she felt badly regardless. It was too difficult to watch, it was time.
I wanted to tell you thank you for giving me the opportunity to be Maudie's mom, it was my great good pleasure.
Another Maude story for the books: If I would fall, which I do occasionally) Maude would stand by my side, she'd stand very still so that I could use her strength to get up! She was such a love, so caring.
I hope you and yours are well.
All the best,
SHE WAS THE LAST OF THE MERLE GIRLS.... ANNIE BELLA AND MAUDE----HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE WITH SUSAN... I THINK SHE WENT ON SEVERAL CRUISES- ONE THRU THE PANAMA CANAL????
AND WHEN SHE WENT TO DEER ISLE MAINE, MY HIGH SCHOOL FRIEND DARWIN WOULD SEE HER AROUND.
TH E 3 WERE BORN IN 2003 THUMPER AND MOOSE. BACK WHEN BETTY AND I SLEPT ON TH E FLOOR OF WHAT IS NOW THE OVERFLOW ROOM .
CHARLIE FROM EXPLORE GAVE A LONG INTERVIEW YESTERDAY AND IT HAS BEEN REPLAYED... WORTH WATCHING-- ESPECIALLY AS HE IS TH E SOURCE OF BOTH CAMERA AND FUNDING. HE ALSO STRESSED PRESENTING EXPLORE MINUS THE COMMERCIAL ASPECT. LUCKILY I HAVE ALWAYS SHIED FROM HAVING ANYONE "USE" OUR LOGO/NAME TO TEIR OWN BENEFIT...WE HAVE A VERY SMALL DOGGIE BAG OF STRANGE THINGS, BUT YESTERDAY SOMEONE CAME UP WITH THE FUND RAISING IDEA OF BRACELETS $5 WITH OUR NAME ON THEM. THIS IS THE KIND OF THING I JUST DON'T WANT TO GET INTO... THE FEW THINGS AROUND HERE ARE THINGS WE USE ANYWAY--- BUT THE CLEARSPAN LABEL ON THE BUILDING...IS AS CLOSE TO ADVERTISING THAT I WANT TO GET.
LUCKILY CHARLIE THINKS THAT WAY ALSO.
I BOUGHT A YARDSTICK FOR A NUTTY PROFESSOR IDEA... AND PER USUAL SOMEONE UNLOADED MY CAR AND PUT IT AWAY
SO I BOUGHT ANOTHER YESTERDAY WHEN I GOT MORE PAINT FOR THE FLOOR IN THE LOFT... AND GUESS WHAT.... IT TOO HAS GONE TO THAT SAME AWAY
THAT CONCEPT IS VERY UPSETTING TO ME WITH MY SENIOR MEMORY BECAUSE I AM NEVER SURE IF I BOUGHT ONE IN THE FIRST PLACE--- EXCEPT I HAD THE RECIEPT FOR THE SECOND ONE.
IT IS NOT JUST YARDSTICKS BEING COLLECTED IN THE AWAY PLACE... LAST NIGHT IT WAS NOODLES THAT I HAD LOOKED FORWARD TO HAVING FOR SUPPER-- I HAD SEEN THEM THERE ON THE SHELF FOR MONTHS.. I FINALLY CALLED TRACY-- LOOKING FOR MY NOODLES...WHO SAID THEY FELL ON THE FLOOR AND THREW THEM OUT YESTERDAY.
THERE IS SOMETHING IN MY MENTAL MAKE UP THAT MAKES ME FOCUS ON WHAT I SEEM TO INSTINCTLY RECOGNIZE AS MISSING.
IT IS ALMOST AS STRANGE AS THAT MYSTERIOUS ARRIVAL OF THINGS WE ALL OF A SUDDEN NEED. ... SAYING " I WISH WE HAD A FRY PAN TO USE TO FEED BUDDY" THEN OPENING THE MAIL THAT NIGHT AND PRESTO 2 PURPLE FRY PANS.. I COULD NOT HAVE KNOWN THAT. IT HAPPENS...
MAKES YOU WONDER...
