april 26 2015
i wish we could tape pam talking to these pups... it is amusing...
"gronk- will you stay in your own dish"--
" now stop that -- it is not yours"
"hey  stop that   no chewing..  knock it off  !"

she is getting their breakfast ready and including thier first tylan dose
really just a pinch- 

for the poo report--
3 pretty good cylindars  ( picked up with a tissue....    more cohesion than adhesion)
5 soft mounds and 
1 flat pancake  drip

progress is being made..
*****************
good puppies... i just happened to catch the group effort to move the big pillow over to the sofa
it w ould be nice to think it was planned, but it was amusing anyway....
as they all pushed and shoved in unison.
with the help of a noisy purina dog food bag, they are learning to concentrate on objects other that each other's ears

opal is being good with them - at least at teh moment...

they need more out and about now... it is the case of " too many rats in a cage will fight"
we tried yesterday or a megan march... without megan... and we gopt 3 out of 9-- the rest had to take the puppy bus down to v pen.-- it was a little chilly, but thanks to my son in law's dog house, it  has a little heater which laura reported as comfortable.
******
you all may not realize - to access the camera for the  V pen,  click on the thumbnail of the picture of the harlequin dog.  early in the morning it also gives you the sunrise picture... plus a view of teh driveway as we try and march with pups.../
**************
lesson for the day-- turnip cooking..
pam is not only great withteh pups, she has great cooking experience.  i never would have thought to  pressure cook an entire turnip with the skin on.. - certainly less complicatedf than to try and whack  away at the outer layer to peal it.

while i am at it...tiny onions-- 30 seconds in boiling water, then cold-- and  cut off the flat end--and squeeze.
*************
i have a pretty good start on a dress for the mannequin made out of dog food bags... -- we really need a full wardrobe of clothing made with purina  bags and.. whatever..-- i mean we need to do a good job on this project... it could mean a  steady supply of purina food....  so think accessorizing-- necklace,  sunglasses, boots.belts  etc.. along with blouse and skirts...
*****
and speaking of rats... or some similar shaped  beast out of the woods...  pam heard something on the porch.  it was big enough to set off the motion detector- she kicked the can and somethign  about 8 inches long ( not including  tail) scurried down into A field..  my guess is a rat--  but 8" plus tail is a pretty big rat..  with that stream and swampy area in "A" it could be a few things.
*****
which reminds me of the  wild pig problem "down south"  the wild pigs are   intelligent, hardy, fast  and prolific... and moving north..
you don't hear much about it-- i am not too sure why  not..--because i have personally seen the devastation caused by a group  out of control in a disney " perfect  town"-- and 2 horse friends -- one in florida-- the other in georga-- have complained of the increasing amt of feed crop being eaten by these huge wild pigs--usually at night.   they are very similiar to rats... except they weigh hundreds of pounds.
************
back to  finding more dog food bags for dress design.
never thought wanting to play withdogs would involve fashion design--  cameras, or lally columns in th e basement. .
but  so it is...
