MAY 17 2015
TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF NOEL.S IMPENDING.... WHAT DID THEY USED TO CALL IT BED\SIDES "BIRTHING"..
??? CONFINEMENT???
WE ARE AS ORGAINZED AS WE CAN BE--- IF SHE STARTS IN LABOR -- I GO UP TO MEGANS -- EITHER BY DRIVING OR BY BEING DRIVEN ( IF IT IS NAP TIME)  AND BE JOINED BY A CREW OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN HERE SINCE BEFORE SYMON TOOK ILL. AND HER MOTHER PROMISED TO MAKE THAT GOOD RELISH/SALAD.  WHAT COULD BE MORE ORGANIZED???
****************

THEN WE HAVE THE MARIAH REPORT--- SHE CAN'T STAND THE CREEP-- AND HE  IS VERY CONCERNED WITH WHO HAD PEE'D WHERE ON HONEYMOON HILL AND IS NOT INTERESTED YET EITHER...  IT IS ONLY HERE 5TH DAY AND  SHE DOES NOT BECOME ATTRACTIVE FOR A FEW MORE DAYS-- AT WHICH TIME SHE ( USUALLY) BECOMES MORE RECEPTAVE TO HIS APPROACHES.
THAT  "FLAGGING"  GOES ON FOR 2-4 DAYS AND THEN LIKE A SWITCH-- SHE GOES BACK TO WANTING TO KILL HIM...  USUALLY....
*************

 THEN THERE ARE THE 2 BLACK PUPS FROM NC-- I HOPE IT GOES THRU-- MS.VEDDER MENTIONED A PERSON WITH A CHILD IN HER AREA THAT NEEDED A SERVICE DOG FOR A HANDICAPPED CHILD.  NEXT CALL WAS FROM A WOMAN WHO WAS LOOKING BASICALLY FOR  A SERVICE DOG  WHO SHE HAD HEARD COULD BE "TETHERED"  TO AN AUTISTIC CHILD  TO KEEP THEM FROM BOLTING AS KIDS ARE INCLINED TO DO.  UNFORTUNATELY I HEARTILY DISAPPROVE OF TYING ANY PERSON TO ANY DOG/ANIMAL  -  CASE CLOSED..   I DID NOT THINK THE DOANTION OF THE 2 PUPS WAS CONTINGENT ON PLACING A DOG WITH THE AUTISTIC CHILD--  AND IT MAY NOT BE- BUT THE 2 PHONECALLS WERE VERY CLOSE TOGETHER. I KNOW THERE ARE  SOME MEMBERS OF ADI WHO AT LEAST USE THE WORD "TETHER"  AND I HAVE HEARD THINGS LIKE PARENT MIGHT BE HOLDING THE LEASH.....  BUT THAT STILL IS A NEVER  IN MY BOOK... NOT EVEN GEORGE  EVER !!!!!

DO I DARE SAY...AND IT IS A STRETCH....... IF I HAD TO PICK ONE SPECIES  IT WOULD BE A DONKEY...  MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE BASIC INSTINCT OF A FRIGHTENED DONKEY TO STAND STILL.  A DOG  HAS THE SAME  INSTINCT AS A HORSE  TO BOLT IF THE CONDITIONS ARE RIGHT..  AND THOSE CONDITIONS OFTEN ARE SOMETHING DRAGGING BEHIND THEM- ONE HORSE IN 10,000 MIGHT BE CONDITIONED TO ACCEPT-  THE REST WEAR "BLINDERS" SO THEY CAN NOT SEE WHAT IS BEHIND THEM..  INSTINCT TELLS THEM IT IS AN ANIMAL CHASING THEM AND THEY BECOME INSANELY  UNCONTROLLABLE.   A DOG CAN BE CONDITIONED OUT OF IT  FAIRLY EASILY-- BUT IT IS STILL THERE IF CONDITIONS ARE  RIPE.-- 

WHEN?? YOU SAY???  I HAVE SEEN MORE THAN ONCE... A PERSON CAREFULLY TIES A PLASTIC BAG TOTHE HANDLE OF THEIR LEASH BEFORE TAKING A DOG FOR A WALK THEN THEY DROP THE LEASH, AND THE DOG  MOVES IN SUCH A WAY THAT  THEY DECIDE IT IS CHASING THEM AND THEY PANIC AND RUN.    IT DOESNT OCCUR TO SOME DOGS-- BUT MAYBE 50%-  BOBBY WAS ONE OF THEM-- I BOUGHT THAT SMALL CART TO HAVE HIM PULL IT, AND HE NEVER COULD ACCEPT HAVING THAT CART  FOLLOW HIM SO CLOSELY.  HE WOULD BOLT AND TURN TO LOOK AT IT... I COULD NOT CONTROL HIM-- AND I WAS PRETTY  STRONG.,
 
  WITH A DONKEY - MARY-  SHE WOUJLD BOLT ONLY IF SHE HAD ONE OF THOSE HUGE STINGING BLACK/GREY FLYS BITING HER ON HER KIDNEYS AND SHE COULD NOT REACH IT-- SO SHE WOULD RUN FOR HELP INTO THE T-TENT FOR SOMEONE TO HIT IT OFF.- AT THAT POINT SHE WAS DANGEROUS TOO.. ( SHE WEIGHED 750 POUNDS)
  SO-----NEVER ON MY WATCH...
*********

THE OTHER PART OF THAT CONVERSATION THAT WAS INTERESTING WAS ... SHE WAS CONVINCED THAT IF SHE PAID $20,000 FOR THE DOG , IT WOULD BE TRAINED TO DO WHAT SHE NEEDED... SHE SOMEHOW EQUATED THE FACT THAT WE DONATE THE DOGS TO THE FACT THAT I WOULD NOT TRAIN AND  GIVE HER AN DOG TO DO THAT UNDER ANY SITUYATIONS.
 THERE IS  A FEELING  AROUND ADI IN GENERAL -  IF RECIPIENTS DON'T PAY FOR A DOG, THEY DON'T VALUE IT AS MUCH.
THAT IS AN OLD AMERICAN TRADITION-- "WHAT'S IT COST?"
I HAVE HAD MANY DISCUSSIONS WITH LU ( ECAD) ABOUT THIS..... I KNOW FROM DISCUSSIONS WITHTHE  VA-- THAT WE ARE ONE OF THE FEW WHO DO NOT CHARGE FOR DOGS.-

 THAT IS THANKS TO  OUR DONORS- ALL YOU DAILY DOGGERS--- THIS IS THE FIRST TIME  IT HAS BECOME THE 15TH DAY OF TEH MONTH AND WE ARE 50% SOLD OUT OF CHICKEN BRICKS...  I GET MANY COMMENTS ABOUT HOW PEOPLE LOVE TO GET THIS DD- SO I FIGURE   $10 A MONTH IS A GOOD SUBSCRIPTION RATE..  AS LONG AS IT IS POSSIBLE-- I WOULD NOT WANT TO PUT ANY PRESSURE  ON ANYONE TO WHOM THAT $10 WOULD BE A PROBLEM... THERE IS GREAT VALUE IN THE NUMBEROF MEMBERS IN THIS CAMERA COMMUNITY  WHO CAN BE CALLED ON TO PARTICIPATE VOCALLY IN SUPPORT OF SDP ON THE INTERNET WHEN NEEDED.. 

WHAT I AM BEGINNING TO  TALK ABOUT WITH APPLICANTS IS PARTICIPATION IN COMMUNITY AFFAIRS AND VOLUNTEERING IN GENERAL... WE ALL FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT WHOEVER GETS OUR DOGS SHOULD GO AOUT AND DO SOPMETHING FOR SOMEONE ELSE WITH THEM-- IF NOTHING MORE  THAN WALK THRU A SENIOR HOME AND CHEER UP THE EMPLOYEEES...
 PLUS THE DOGS LEAD A MORE INTERESTING LIFE IF THEY GET OUT AND AROUND...- AND HAVE A COMFORTABLE PLACE TO REST BETWEEN JAUNTS.  
JULIA IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF  GETTING OUT--- IN PUBLIC  DOING WHATEVER SHE CAN TO  EDUCATE AND AMUSE-- 
THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE IS THAT SHE DOES NOT SEND ME AN EMAIL... BUT WRITES LOVELY LONG REPORTS IN PLACES I CAN NOT EASILY LOCATE, NOT BEIONG A BOOK FACER.  JULIA !!!!! PLEASE !!!!

I HAVE A TERRIBLE DEFEATEST ATTITUDE WHEN IT COMES TO TRYING TO FIND REPORTS OF ANY OF OUR RECIPIENTS.
"JUST GO OUT TO FACEBOOK......"  HEY-- FIRSTLY... I AM OF THE GENERATION WHERE IF YOU "WENT OUT"  ANYWHERE WHILE SITTING STILL MEANT YOU WERE  BECOMING INSANE DUE TO SUBSTANSE ABUSE--   THAT AS CLOSELY AS I CAN DESCRIBE MY RELATIOSHIP WITH  TECHNOLOGY...
BESIDES THIS FACEBOOK THING  THINKS I AM JANINE.
LAST I KNEW --- I WASN'T.
