WADDA PARTY !! 
ANNIE  DROVE ME---  I UNLOADED BENTLEY IN THE PARKING LOT-- AND HE WAS HIS USUAL BUSINESS LIKE DOG-- WALK ALONG- HEAD DOWN --AND WE GOT TO THE ROOM AND HE LITERALLY   JUMPED FOR JOY WHEN HE REALIZED HE KNEW ALL THESE PEOPLE- AND WENT FROM ONE TO ANOTHER FOR THE FIRST 5 MINUTES BEFORE HE COULD SETTLE DOWN....
THEN HE WAS FINE TIL THE  DANCING STARTED AND HE WANTED IN ON IT WITH JANINE..  I HOPE SOMEONE GOT SOME PICTURES  HE IS AS TALL AS SHE  WHEN HE STANDS UP...  HE ALSO HAD TO ACKNOWLEDGE MEGAN WHEN SHE DANCED BY..... AND THEN STEVE AND EARLENE DANCED-- AND BENTLEY WAS NOT TOO SURE ABOUT THAT-- HE DID NOT LIKE STEVE SWINGING HIS ARMS ANYWHERE NEAR EARLENE-- HE WAS READY TO TAKE HIM DOWN...

I REMEMBER  BAILEY --- AT DOG FEST.... I FORGOT WHO ? MEGAN?-- BUT A SINGER GOT TOO CLOSE AND BAILEY RUSHED IN TO STRAIGHTEN THAT OUT.... WITH A "JUST TELL ME WHO TO BITE AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO DO THAT."

WE HAVE AMASSED  AN AMAZING GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS.... KEEPING  THE PLACE GOING WITH A HUGE EFFORT HOT OR COLD-- THEY SHOW UP AND GET THINGS DONE...  THERE IS NO WAY I COULD BEGIN TO RUN THIS PLACE ALONE....

 I DID AT ONE POINT- GET IT STARTED--   JUST ME AND A FEW DOGS AND A LOOSE LEAF NOTEBOOK WITH RABIES CERTIFICATES  --THEN IT GREW  TO ME AND A FEW DOGS AND ONE FILE CABINET...WITH STUFF FILED NUMERICALLY---- THEN IT EXPLODED TO A FEW MORE DOGS--- 93 MORE FILING CABINETS  WITH  58 "PROCEDURES"  MONITORED BY A SMALL GROUP OF "BUSINESS TYPES" WHO HAVE SOME 5 YEAR PLAN, WHILE  I AM TRYING TO DEAL WITH THE IMMEDIATE PROBLEMS -- LIKE TRASH COLLECTION.

I HAVE TO ADMIT- I AM AT THE    "LET IT ALL HAPPEN"  STAGE.  THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE GROUP WHO SEEM TO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING,.. SOME WE HARDLY EVER SEE...

LIKE ANN- WHO KEEPS  WRITING LETTERS AND INSISTING ON THE CORRECT GRAMMER AND SPELLING-- BUT I HAVE TO  ADMIT SHE IS BETTER AT IT THAN I EVER COULD BE-- THE ONLY REASON SHE IS BETTER AT THE GRAMMER IS SHE IS NOT AMERICAN BORN OR EDUCATED ---( DENMARK)

 THEN THERE IS CALENDAR KITTY WHO IS MORTIFIED THAT THE CALENDAR HAS  NO FRIDAY THE 13TH IN  FEBUARARY  BUT  TWO 12ths  --- SOMEONE MENTIONED THAT IT GAVE THE CALENDAR CHARACTER- AND SHE WAS MORTIFIED...-- IT IS A LOVELY CALENDAR---SHE IS ALREADY  COLLECTING 2016 IDEAS

BEEFY JIM- WHO WE NEVER SEE -- LIKE SHIPS THAT PASS IN THE NIGHT- HE COMES AND LEAVES BEEF IN THE WALKIN FREEZER--FOR STEVE TO SHRED IN HIS WOOD CHIPPER---

THE CLOUDY  LINDA PERSON WHO NAGS ME FOR DETAILS AND KEEPS OUR STATISTICS PERFECTLY STRAIGHT FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY...AND I AM ALWAYS GLAD SHE DID NAG ME-- OTHERWISE  I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO FIND A THING.......

NOT TO MENTOIN JULIETTE  AND HER SDP FAMILY TREE-- WHICH NOW IS THE OLNY RECORD WE HAVE OF BLOODLINES--  WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN SOMEWHERE--- BUT HER'S WORKS....

AND TINA WHEREVER SHE IS -- HER LONG DISTANCE EFFICIENCY IS ASTRONOMICAL- I MEAN IF I HAD TO PUT THAT PARTY TOGETHER WE WOULD ALL BE HUDDLED AROUND SOME CAMPFIRE EATING HOT DOGS..

THEN THE VERY IMPORTANT PEOPLE WHO REMIND EVERYONE  ONLINE TO BUY THE CHICKEN BRICKS THAT PAY OUR BILLS...

IT IS A  PEQUILIAR SYSTEM THAT IS WORKING-- AND TH E PRODUCTION  IS SPECGTACULAR-- IF WE ONLY PRODUCED ONE BELLA AND GEORGE A YEAR IT WOULD BE WORHT IT-- BUT WE HAVE DOZENS OF LIVES CHANGED  BECAUSE OF  THE COOPERATION OF  THE POO-PICKERS.

SOME WOULD SUGGEST THE POO PICKING IS A LOWLY JOB--- BUT JUST THINK HOW WE WOULD BE WITHOUT IT-- WE WOULD BE KNEE DEEP IN USED FOOD.

YOU ALL KNOW I HAVE THOSE  SAME FEELINGS ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT - CONGRESS- vs... MY TRASH COLLECTOR-- I  WOULD NEVER NOTICE  IF MY COPNGRESSMAN WAS OUT FOR A MONTH-- BUT LET OUR TRASH GUY MISS A DAY AND WE ARE IN TROUBLE.  THEREFORE I WONDER WHY THE CONGRESS IS PAID MORE THAN  THE TRASH GUY... AND I KNOW THEY ARE OUT FOR MONTHS AT A TIME.

SO B ACK TO WORK...AS I SEEE  IT...

Cuba is doing great. She still goes everywhere with me which often involves romps in the woods. 
Yesterday we were out walking on a road which borders a big Black Angus cattle farm. We were minding our 
Own business and not bothering anyone nor thing when it came time to leave. I had seen a red pick-up 
In the distance watching us, but thought nothing of it until I opened the back door of my car to let Cuba 
In.  All of a sudden this big burley pissed off farmer zoomed up to my car yelling at me.  Took a minute
Or two to realize that he thought I had stolen one of his calves and stuffed it into the back of my Cadillac.
You should have seen the look on his face when I let her back out for him to see.  Just another day...

  1. Thanks to Tommy for sharing your 'cattle rustling' adventure. I can imagine the look on the farmers face, and it is worth a good giggle!
    And I second the thanks from Carlene to all the volunteers, wish I was in the neighborhood so I could be one. I envy you all, poo picking and all!
    Keep up the good works! Miracles happen because of your efforts.

  2. Tommy and Cuba's cow incident reminds me of the first time Chaos was VERY much with puppies on camera. Someone's husband commented as he passed through the room, "Why is there a cow on a couch?" Poor Chaos, she was enormous. (-:

  3. Todays DD made me smile as well as the comments.. We lived behind a cutting horse ranch a long time ago, and my Boxer at the time was a reddish tan with a white face... The horses worked with brown cows with white faces.. My dog would lay by the fence and all the cows would come over and lick him all over.. They must have thought he was an abandoned baby.... It also seems like I read that Baily was upset when someone was dancing with Erlee

  5. My husband was walking our Dewey dane down one side of the boulevard park that splits the main street in our neighborhood. A neighbor was walking her daughter (in a stroller) down the other side of the street. Our neighbors daughter pointed at Dewey, looked at her mom, and said, "Mommy! Moo! Moo!"
