SEPT 16 2014
24 people on the  BB list for yesterday -- wooowowoowooooooo
*****
TIME TO TACKLE THE INQUIRY FILE...  WE GOT A LITTLE BEHIND DURING  THE DOGFEST.  WE HAVE ALOT OF INQUIRY'S TO FIGURE OUT IF THEY SHOULD SEND IN A FULL APPLICATION OR IF FOR SOME REASON OUR DANES ARE NOT THIER BEST SOLUTION.
SENDING IN AN APLICATION IS NOT A SITUATION WHERE IF YOU ARE #16 ON OUR LIST, YOU GET THE 16TH DOG AVAILABLE...-- NO WAY--- THEN IT BECOMES KEEPING IN MIND WHO HAS APPLIED AND WHAT DOGS WE HAVE AND WAIT FOR A SWIFT BREEZE   TO TELL US WHICH TO M MATCH WITH WHOM.   HEIGHT AND WEIGHT ARE JUST THE BEGINNING... CHILDREN, AND OTHER ANIMALS, OCCUPATION, ABILITIES , GOALS, SENSE OF HUMOR, ( EVEN WITH PTSD) CHEERFUL ATTITUDE-- ALL THESE THINGS GO INTO TRYING TO MAKE A MATCH.  THESE ARE PARTNERS, NOT SLAVES.
AT ANY RATE IT STARTS WITH THE INQUIRY BOOK.... FULL OF SINGLE SHEETS OF PAPER PEOPLE HAVE SENT ( NOT EMAILED- BEACUSE I DO NOT WANT TO DEAL WITH THE &^*(*^*&%^ PRINTER- THEY ARE TO BE SENT SNAIL MAIL.)
I TRY AND GO OVER THE BOOK WHEN THERE ARE OTHER BOARD MEMBERS AROUND TO COMMENT  ALSO...
THEN EARLENE WOULD TYPE THE LETTERS... AND NOW WE ARE MINUS HER WHILE SHE BABY SITS HER GREAT GRANDCHILD.... DARN....
**********
AND I  HAVE A FEW  PROBLEM LETTERS TO WRITE.

OTHER THAN THAT...
I HAVE NOT DONE THIS YET... BUT IT SOUNDS PROMISING
CARLENE - I READ YOUR DOOGIE DAILY, DAILY AND I READ MIKE ROWE'S (OF DIRTY JOBS FAME) BLOG. HE TOTALLY AGREES WITH YOU ABOUT THE HIGHER EDUCATION VS TRADE EDUCATION. SO MUCH THAT HE PROVIDES SCHOLARSHIPS FOR THOSE THAT WANT TO LEARN A TRADE. THE WEBSITE FOR HIS ORGANIZATION IS: http://www.mikeroweworks.com/home. I THOUGHT THAT YOU MIGHT LIKE TO CHECK IT OUT, IN YOU EVER SO PRESENT DOWN TIME...

Dear Carlene, 
   I heard you were looking for an update so here it is. School is getting 
better, and Wendy will go outside for recess with me with Daddy helping a little 
bit, but a lot less than last week.
   We went apple picking and it was Wendy's first time. I went down the big hill 
to the trees to pick with Daddy only helping across the rocky parking lot and 
then holding the back up chain part way down the hill, but we did so good that 
he ended up letting it go and just having us do it ourselves.  She didn't want 
to go the way I wanted sometimes but I made her do it, and we walked ahead of 
Mommy, Daddy and Madi looking for apples on lower branches. I slipped a couple 
of times because it was really wet, but I got up and kept on going, but I wasn't 
happy about my pants being wet! I did fall once and grabbed on to Wendy and 
didn't fall to the ground. Wendy was sniffing the apples on the trees and on the 
ground, but I told her that she couldn't and then she was fine. We went quite a 
ways and finally had to climb the big hill to get back to the car and Wendy 
helped pull me up. Daddy and Mommy said we did great and it was almost all by 
ourselves! Hope you like the pictures!

Love, Hunter & Wendy
