nancy said the few emails and lletters she has received have helped them tremendously... so please... get a letter off to larry and show him the virtual army behind him. i figure if you all get a note in the mail today and tomorrow, he ought to feel better along about wednesday and thursday larry peterson 83 nautical lane s. yarmouth ma 02664 .
as for the yankee clipper inn--- apparently some people have called there - and while their intentions are good, it does not do any good to be angry with the person who answers the phone.. it wasn't their fault... it was the manager--- who according to the posts before all this, he was not alway the most gracious host.
lynn has him apparently willing to learn---- a few hundred- letters might make him anxious to learn-- i am sure he will not read them-- but the number of envelopes should make a definite statement.
and hopefully attract a little more media attention.
we have 2 more applicants working their way into our "system"
a woman from vermont is in the guest house trying the bonding bit and a couple are camped out in the training room

bud 2 and maroon are on their way together-- so far so good
Roo and I have been settling in back at home. It's been busy with all the folks that knew and miss Indy wanting to meet Roo coupled with Conner having just gotten home from his vacation. We all went out to eat the other night and dealt with the usual crowd issues.... " don't mind us we just had to come over and stare at you and your dog while you eat".. etc... well I added the last bit.... Roo did great. stood up a few times but could mostly be excused by the interruptions of the nosy folk...
He and our golden have taken to each other very well. they are becoming fast friends. All in all integration at home is a huge success.
Roo continues to be a complete clown at times which is wonderful. He is a great fit and we will make an outstanding team.
Thank you all ... again .... bud 2
nice dog that roo...
we had some nice new "stewers" yesterday--- it is always nice to have them park and come over to introduce themselves before wandering around... however there was one bunch mom and 4 kids- park the car- 4 doors open and 4 kids scattered in all directions... i had to chase them down...
and then the family with 2 kids in those heavy duty wheelchairs-- nice people...they made thier way into the puppy pen and enjoyed the 11 pups who were not toooooo bad--- certainly lively--- and i warned them.
i was very pleased to have the pups worn out by the time visitors began to go in there with them.. that is a good plan.
we got the box of kongs going- ready for distribution to bored dogs in kennels- it will be easier and more interesting when we have a walkin freezer and can preload them with meat and goodies that hae to be refrigerated. in the meantime lets concentrate on gathering up all kongs you see out and around-- to the t tent... for "processing"
that freezer--- i am told-- will be shipped in 4 days--- there will then be a huge effort to get it put together.... and get that whole area tidy again..
it may have to be painted... here we go again...
we are getting dressed up-- not only the potholes, but renee took on the cemetary
I expect to have the grave markers later next week (engraver was on vaca). I've used local businesses and they have been marvelous).
