MAY 29 2015
bodacious--  HOW COME WE NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT NAME FOR A DOG???
SOMEBODY PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ONE.

TODAY'S PROBLEMS----
1....MARIAH IS DRIPPING SOMETHING-  HEY !!! YOU HAVE TO START THE DAY WITH REALLY CRITICAL MATTERS. 
 WE HAD HER GO FOR A WALK IN THE PARK WITH WALTER---  HE ENJOYED SNIFFING THE FLOWERS... BUT NOT MUCH ELSE..
 SHE IS LOOKING LIKE SHE IS EITHER IN HEAT OR SOMETHING IS VEYR WRONG WITH HER PLUMBING. 
 SHE WAS VERY HAPPY TO SEE WALTER... AND THEY ARE A SIGHT... "RUNNING  LIKE THE  WIND"  WHICH WAS PRETTY 
TO WATCH.. BUT NOT WHAT I HAD IN MIND.

2... FLAT.. STRAIGHT... IN THE  MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT IT OCCURS TO ME WE HAVE 4 CURVED PIPES TO FIT
 TOGETHER 22 TIMES AND THEY MUST BE FLAT--WHICH WOULD BE SIMPLE IF WE HAD A FLAT SURFACE... 
WHICH WE DON'T--- AND EVEN IF I THINK IT IS FLAT WE WON'T KNOW TIL WE STAND UP ALL 
.. THESE BOWS AND THEY ARE ALL CROOKED.. AT THE MOMENTI AM TRYNG TO FIGURE OUT
 HOW TO PROVE THEY ARE FLAT IN THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY...
  AND I DON'T HAVE ONE WAY YET-- EFFECIENT OR INEFFICIENT..  

3.  I SPENT A LONG TIME YESTERDAY BEFORE I REALIZED THERE ARE 3 DIFFERENT CURVED PIPES--
 WITH DIFFERENT  PREDRILLED HOLES-- THAT ARE NOT EASY TO SEE. 

CLEARSPAN WILL BE SORRY THEY EVER SENT ME A BUILDING AND A SET OF DIRECTIONS... I AM ALREADY 
RE-WRITING THE DIRECTIONS... LIKE  A SMALL SQUIRT OF PAINT  ON THE DIFFERNT  TYPES OFF PIPE WOULD
HAVE SAVED ME  4 HOURS SO FAR... IT IS A MALE/FEMALE END KIND OF PROBLEM--
 SAME AS THE WIRES FOR THE MICROPHONE.... THE PROBLEM STILL CONFUSING ME IIS THESE PIPES ARE 
?12 FEET LONG-- BUT IN THE BUNCH THERE ARE MAYBE 6  1'LONG PIECES...-- 
WHICH AT THE MOMENT  I THINK WERE JUAT TO TIGHTEN THE BUNDLES FOR SHIPPING..

IT REMAINS... THE PIECE THAT ATTACHES TO THE WORLD IS A MALE THING SO FIRST PIPE NEEDS FEMALE.
SO IFALL THE PIPES WERE THE SAME WITH THIEE MALE FEMALE THING  YOU WOULD
 GET TO THE TOP WITH A  MALE MALE SITUATION --
 WHICH COULD BE WHERE THESE 1 FOOT LONG FEMALE FEMALE PIPES FIT IN...
THAT IS NOT THE MOST STABLE  CONNECTION  SO I DOUBT THAT IS THE SOLUTION.

AND I WON'T KNOW TIL WE SORT OUT QLL THOSE PIPES  CHECKING FOR  PREDRILLED HOLES AND 
TINY BAR CODE TYOE NUMBERS--
 WHEN A QUICK SQUIRT OF RED/WHITE/BLUE  PAINT WOULD HAVE MADE IT EASIER.

THEN...... AT MAILCALL LAST NIGHT.... I THOUGHT.. MAYBE IF I PUT UP A BIG SIGN
 "THIS IS A CLEARSPAN EASY TO ERECT BUILDING"  
 MAYBE CLEARSPAN WOULD SEND ME A BUNCH OF PEOPLE TO PUT IT UP RIGHT SO 
IT WOULD NOT BE A TERRIBLE EYESORE ON THE INTERNET.

NOT A BAD IDEA... I AM NOT OPPOSED TO BLACKMAIL WHEN NECESSARY.

BUT WE WILL TRY...  IT IS AN INTERESTING COLLECTION OF HARDWARE  AT THE MOMENT
***********

NOW AS FOR WHAT DOG LEAVES HERE WITH WHAT TITLE...... THERE HAVE BEEN COMMENTS LATELY 
 WHICH  I AM NOT FREE TO DISCUSS.. BUT LET ME DEFINE THE SDP   -- OR AT LEAST MY
THOUGHT PROCESS. 

 BY HAVING APPLICANTS  VOLUNTEER HERE AND HANG AROUND, 
I GET TO LOOK OVER WHAT THEIR NEEDS ARE..  AND AT THE SAME TIME-- THEIR CAPABIOLITIES.
LET US LOOK AT BUD2-- I CERTAINLY HOPE HE DOES NOT MIND...
HE LOST HIS FIRST DOG INDY TO  .. I THINK .. CANCER...  THAT IS SO DEVASTATING A SITUATION,
 THAT IS DEMANDS ALL THE ATTENTION WE CAN GIVE HIM. AT FIRST HE NEVER WANTED TO GO THRU THAT  
AGAIN... AND 4 DAYS LATER I GOT AN EMAIL   "  LIFE WITHOUT A DANE WAS NOT AN OPTION."

WELL... WHAT OPTIONS DID WE HAVE??? WE DID NOT HAVE A PERFECTLY TRAINED SERVIDCE DOG
 READY TO GO THAT WOULD SUIT HIM.
WE DID HAVE A VERY NICE 9 MONTH OLD PUP -MAROON-   VERY NICE..
 BUT NEEDED 20 MILES-- AND JUST MORE "EEXPERIENCE"
WELL WE COULD KEEP HIM AND MEGAN COULD WANDER AROUND THE MALLS ETC... BUT  BUD 2
IS A VERY KNOWLEGEABLE PREVIOUS SERVICE DOG OWNER  WHO IS VERY CAPABLE OF WANDERING
 AROUND THE SAME PLACES WITH  THE PUP.  THE ACCREDITING "ASSISTANCE DOG INTERNATIONAL" 
WOULD HAVE A HEART ATTACK ABOUT HAVING US PLACE  A 9 MONTH OLD AS A FULLY TRAINED SERVICE DOG.
MOST ADI TRAINING FACILITIES DON'T EVEN START FORMAL TRAINING TIL 18 MONTHS.
SO WE  DID NOT CALL HIM A SERVICE DOG... ... ROO IS A SERVICE DOG IN TRAINING..  WHEN BUD COMES BACK TO GET HIS
 RECERTIFICATION, WE CAN RE-TEST ROO AND IF HE PASSES TEH TEST-- MAKE HIM OFFICIAL-- 

NOW FOR EXAMPLE.... IF I HAVE A PUP WHO SHOWS FOOD AGGERSSION--- AND I HAVE  A PERSON WHO 
HAS BEEN AROUND HERE..  IN NEED OF A  MOBILIYY DOG ----WHO TOTALLY UNDERSTANDS FOOD AGGRESSION,
 AND IS WILLING TO DEAL WITH THE  VERY SPECIFIC LIMITATIONS OF THAT PROBLEM...  I COULD BE CONVINCED 
TO GIVE THEM THE DOG... IN TRAINING--  THE DOG HAS ONE SPECIFIC PROBLEM TO WORK THRU---
I AM NOT WILLING TO CALL HIM A FABULOUS FAILURE, WHEN A PERSON IN NEED HAS THE CAPABILITIES OF WORKING 
WITH THE DOG.  ESPECIALLY IF TEHY LIVE CLOSE ENOUGH TO COME HERE DAILY IF NEED BE.

 JUST SWALLOW THE SEMANTICS.. 
 ALL DOGS FROM HERE   WILL   SERVE SOMEONE SOMEHOW.

FROM ZENA
I am writing to you to let you know I am
doing just fine and adjusting to life in Florida.  Everything is much different
here, and I am curious about all of it.  Buckeye (SDit) and I have lots of fun
playing ball together and chasing each other.  We even dig tunnels too. I have
met the goats and horses.  Miss Etta and I took a walk through the pasture and
met some cows with big long things sticking out of their heads.  Miss Etta said
they were longhorns, whatever that is.
I really like going for
rides in her van.  I can watch out the window to see where we are going.  We
have run errands to stores and the bank.  I like going to the bank because they
give me treats.  Yum!  We even went to a restaurant with friends.  I was good
like you taught me, and laid under the table.

  1. FLAT vs CURVED - If you have enough space... lay the pipes on their sides, roll them. A flat pipe will roll easily. A curved pipe will have a wobble that indicates that the curve is interfering with the even roll. OR bribe clearspan!
