AUG 4 2014
THE PLOT THICKENS---  THE GOLD (GHOST OF THE LEFT DRAWER) HAS MOVED TO MY ROOM.  HE/SHE REALLY DID NOT SEEM TO LIKE MY WASHING THE DRAWER WITH ANNESETTE TO KILL THE WIERD SMELL... NOW..... I HAVE ONE TRASH BAG FEWER CLOTHES...DUE TO THE MISSING BAG OUT OF TH E DRYER--- WHY AM I SUDDENLY  2 COAT HANGERS SHORT-- WHERE FOR 4 YEARS  I  HAVE HAD ENOUGH HANGERS TO HANG UP ALL THESE  SUN BLOCK SHIRTS I WEAR... IN ONE OF MY EFFORTS TO GET ORGANIZED, I WENT AND BOUGHT DIFFERENT   HANGERS AT THE CONTAINER STORE SO I COUOLD ACTUALY HANG UP MY SHIRTS..  

TODAY--- 2 SHORT

UNLESS MY SHIRTS ARE MULTIPLYING IN THE BACK  SHELF.

VERY STRANGE...

**************
MULLTIPLYING--- DOGS--- MERLOW--- DID WELL OVERCOMING PROBLEMS--
IF ANYONE EVER OFFERS YOU A CHOICE BETWEEN SMART AND LUCKY-- CHOOSE LUCKY EVERY TIME...

SHE HAD 2 PUPS-- AND AFTER 4 HOURS OF CONTRACTIONS, I TRIED THE RUBBER GLOVE METHOD OF TRYING TO LOCATE THE NEXT--- AND COULD FEEL NOTHING.-- YOU COULD NOT DO THAT WITH AT COCKER SPANIEL-- BUT DANES ARE BIG...  WE HAVE 2 SHOTS OF OXYTOCIN WHICH INCREASES THE CONTRACTIONS-- BUT ALSO MAKES ME VERY NERVOUS-- BECAUSE GEORGE HAS OFTEN SAID DON'T USE IT TIL I TALK TO HIM --- TO BE SURE WE HAD AN EXIT PLAN.. IF IT DID NOT WORK.. 

SUNDAY MORNING 11AM AND I KNEW THE VETS AT HIS OFFICE ARE THRU AT NOON  SO I CALLED--- AN CAROLINE ( DVM) SAID BRING HER DOWN FOR XRAYS AT LEAST--  NO ANESTHESIA OR TRANQUILIZER FOR THE XRAY....-- JUST HEFT HER ON THE TABLE AND TELL HER TO HOLD STILL-SHOWED AT LEAST 4 SPINES ..CAROLINE GAVE ME THE CHOICE  TRY OXY OR SURGERY--- I CHOSE SURGERY--SO WITH A FULL 9 YARDS OF ANESTHESIA  THE SURGERY  LATEER REVEALED OXY WOULD NOT HAVE WORKED DUE TO ONE VERY LARGE VERY DEAD PUP JUST PLAIN STUCK---AND THE ONE BEHIND IT HAD DIED ALSO-- ( A DOG HAS A Y SHAPED UTEROUS WITH 2 ? HORNS...)  -- THE OTHER HORN HAD 2 NICE LIVELY FEMALE PUPS--..

SO THAT WAS MY 2 LUCKY CHOICES OF THE DAY --- GO... AND ...OPERATE.

HI CARLENE,

I KNOW YOU LOVE CUT AND PASTES.  HERE IS ONE FOR THE DD.  I KNOE US RECIPIENTS ALWAYS WRITE ABOUT HOW GREAT OUR SERVICE DOGS ARE, SO I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON IVY AND WHAT SHE DOES WHEN SHE IS NOW WORKING.

1.  WHEN I PUT HER OUT IN THE MORNING, SHE GOES ON A FLUFFY AND IT ALMOST LOOKS LIKE SHE DOES PUPPY YOGA.

2.  SHE LOVES, LOVES TENNIS BALLS AND HAS ONE IN PARTICULAR THAT SHE LOVES TO PLAY WITH.

3.  SHE DOES NOT LIKE MOURNING DOVE BIRDS.  I THINK IT IS THEIR COOING SOUNDS.  SHE WILL STAND AT THE FENCE AND JUST WATCH THEM ON MY NEIGHBORS SHED UNTIL THEY FLY AWAY.

4.  IVY LOVES TO FOLLOW DREW AROUND THE BACKYARD WHEN HE TRIES TO WATER THE PLANTS  SHE ABSOLUTELY HAS TO DRINK OUT OF THE HOSE.  SHE GETS MORE WATER THAN THE PLANTS DO.

5.  I USE TO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL BACKYARD.  THEN WE BROUGHT IVY HOME AND NOW MY BACKYARD LOOKS LIKE PUPPY HILL WITH ALL THE EXCAVATION PROJECTS SHE HAS GOING ON.  MY OTHER DOG BRADY LOVES IT WHEN SHE DIGS, BECAUSE THEN HE GOES AND LAYS IN THE COLD DIRT.

6.  SHE LOVES HELPING ME COOK.  UMMM, NO EXPLANATION NEEDED.  LOL

7.  SHE TRIES TO PREWASH THE DISHES BEFORE THEY GO IN THE DISHWASHER.

9.  SHE LOVES TO PLAY WITH ONE OF MY CATS, WILLOW.  UNFORTUNATELY, WILLOW DOES NOT SHARE THE SAME FEELING.

10.  LAST BUT NOT LEAST,  SHE TRIES TO OPEN UP THE TREAT DRAW.  BUT, WE HAVE CHILDPROOF DEVICES TO AVOID THAT SITUATION.

11.  SHE IS ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP DREW FILL UP THE BIRD FEEDERS, ESPECIALLY THE FEEDERS THAT HAVE GRAPE JELLY, ORANGES AND PEANUTS.

12.  SUNDAY IS OUR DOWN DAY HERE AT HOME SO IT IT ALSO HER DAY OFF.  I BELIEVE SHE KNOW IS TOO, BECAUSE SOMETIMES SHE WILL NOT GET OUT OF MY BED, YES MY BED, UNTIL LATE MORNING.  

ALL IN ALL, SHE IS A VERY HAPPY, HARD WORKING AND HARD PLAYING GIRL WHO IS MORE LOVED THAN ANYONE CAN EVER KNOW.

HOPE YOU GOT A CHUCKLE OUT OF THIS.
