SEPT 22 2015
THIS IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE RUSHING... 

I THINK SCARLOTT SHOULD COME HERE BY TONIGHT... BUT THE STUDY OF THE SQUARE FOOTAGE INT HE TV ROOM INDICATES MASSIVE FURNATURE MOVEMENT--BIG SOFA TO KITCHEN AND  THAT SMALLER SOFA IN TV    THRU A DOOR THT FITS NEITHER.....AND THE 2 CHAIRS ETC ETC ETC....

MANY SHAKEDOWN COMMENTS ABOUT DOGFEST WHICH I WILL SHARE EVERNTUALLY...  WHEN I CAN DO IT JUSTICE... MOST PEOPLE WERE THRILLED,OR AT LEAST VERY HAPPY--  I ALWAYS EXPECT  THERE TO BE   IN ANY GROUP A FEW PEOPLE WHO BECOME  DISGRUNTLED IF ENCOURAGED TO BECOME DISGRUNTLED-- I AM HAPPY TO REPORT MAXIMUM GRUNTLED.  WITH  MINIMAL DISGRUNTLED 

IT IS ALWAYS NICE TO DO NEXT YEAR'S PLANNING BEFORE WE FORGET ALL THE DETAILS...--- I HAD HOPED TO GO OUT TO DINNER WITH TINA , GINGER  AND THE "BOARD OF DIRECTORS"  TONIGHT-- BUT TINA AND GINGER LEFT FOR THE AIRPORT... VERY EARLY.

THERE WERE THINGS THAT WORKED WELL... AND NOT SO WELL  AND WE NEED COMMENTS NOW...-- THINGS LIKE WE NEED ANOTHER APPROACH TO MAIL- BECAUSE THE PARKING  IN THE DRIVEWAY MEANT FEDEX AND UPS  WOULD NOT RISK THE NARROW DRIVE.. EVEN THO JANINIE GOT UP A DN DOWN WITH THE HORSE TRAILER --- IT WAS TIGHT.

 ONE OF MY  MY FAVORTIE  STOIES  WERE THE 2 WHO BECAME FIREBUILDERS-- HAVING NO EXPERIENCE IN IT... IMMEDIQTELY WENT TO THE INTERNET... TO NO AVAIL--- AND THEN ADVISED BY STEVE TO START A FIRE WITH DRYER LINT STUFFED IN TOILET PAPER TUBES... SO THEY IMMEDIATELY WENT TO  THE  BUSINESS  WITH GREAT ATTITUDE  ACHIEVING THEIR GOAL AFTER CLEANING OUT ALL THE  DRYERS ON THE PROPERTY...
  LOVE IT !!!!

I WAS SO TIRED BY SUNDAY  AFTERNOON , I COULD BARELY CHEW MY ICECREAM...

 I HAVE 3 ARTICLES TO WRITE BEFORE FRIDAY ABOUT  THINGS LIKE THE HEALTH STUDIES WE ARE INVOLVED....... IN WHICH WE ARE INVOLVED...    DARN ENGLISH LANGUAGE....

BELLA NEEDS  A FEW MORE SHIRT BUYERS--- EMAIL 

HI Carlene, HERE IS THE LATEST FROM BELLA AND George
 
It was a great start to the school week. George used his backpack vest and did great. He didn't mind that there was a slight change and still did his job. He was able to help Bella and carry her folders and notebook to her different classrooms. This allows Bella to have both hands free. He doesn't carry books
 
or anything because they keep that in each room for her but for a first day George did great. We sent his regular service vest just in case but they didn't even need to change it. And somehow I didn't even get a picture of him in it. I will try again tomorrow.
 
I think Bellas busy day on Saturday has caught up with her. She was very sore and tired after school. In bed early and having a lot of trouble moving. You wouldn't even know it was the same girl that was running all over the place on Saturday. Hopefully a good nights sleep will help her feel better. So she
 
took some Motrin and is off to sleep
 
We are so close to 300 shirts. I think only 4 away. Can we get that by the time Bella wakes up tomorrow? Here is the link again.
 
 
Thanks!! Love Bella and George \uD83D\uDC78\uD83D\uDC36

I just wanted to take a minute and say "THANK YOU" for opening up the farm for the gathering of all of us crazy dog people.

Although I have been friends with many of these people through facebook, it is great to spend quality time with them in person.  Without you and the farm, this would not be possible.
 
The best part, for me anyway, is seeing the working teams and knowing that I had a small part in helping them come to fruition. I could listen to Lynne and Julia (and any other teams that want to join in) all day-I never tire of hearing of their daily lives and just how very much of a difference these dogs make...
 
Even though my husband and I put in a hard day's work each and every day that we are there, it really doesn't seem like work.  We always try to do something that needs to be done without involving someone else at the farm.  Our idea is to do the work that needs to be done and not take anyone away from their primary job of training these amazing, beautiful animals to be someone's life partner.

Once again, THANK YOU to all the staff and volunteers for making this amazing weekend possible for us.

See you in the Spring and hopefully, once again in the Fall for another DogFest...

Jeri and Steven Ray
