SEPT 26 2015
from the old "time to start the donuts" commercial.....
TIME TO START THE WEE WEE PADS.....
a very monumental point in our lives ... 
up to this point opal has kept the pups super clean.  perfect job !
but that is coming to an end...i can see it coming... like a tsunami wave
THE PUPS, AGE 14 DAYS... ABOUT ... HAVE THEIR EYES OPEN  AND BELLIES OFF THE FLOOR
SO THEY ARE BEGINNING TO TRAVEL QWAY FROM MOM TO PEE...
EITHER BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE INSTINCT TO PEE AWAY FROM THE SLEEPING NEST--
 OR THEY ARE SICK OF MOMMY ROLLING THEM AROUND TO LICK UP WHATEVER.....
NOW THQT THEY HAVE BELLIES OFF THE FLOOR, WE NEED TO PROVICE 2 AREAS... BOTH WITH GOOD TRACTION...
A FLUFFY FOR LIVING ACCOMODATIONS   AND WEE WEE AREA FOR THE PIDDLES....
TO BE SOON EXPANDED TO THE POOPING AREA--  BECAUSE AS SOON AS WE START FEEDNG THEM SOLID GRUEL, THE MOMMIES QUIT... WITH  THE ATTITUDE  "I DID NOT PUT THAT STUFF IN THEM AND I AIN'T CLEANING UP AFTER THEM"

AT THIS POINT WE TRY AND ELIMINATE THE SLIP AND SLIDE FACTOR IN THE PROCESS.
EVEN ONE SLIP  AND SLIDE CAN TRACK AN ODIFEROUS  GLOB ONTO THE SLEEPING FLUFFY.... WHICH  WITH MANY MOMMIES MEANS THEY WILL NOT LIE DOWN TO NURSE THE PUPS IF IT IS NOT FASTIDIOUSLY CLEAN  ... I THINK IT IS NOEL WHO IS SO BAD SHE WOULD LET HER PUPS STARVE BEFORE SHE WOULD LIE DOWN IN A FOOTPRINT.

FURTHERMORE....ON THAT TOPIC.....
IN AN EFFORT TO KEEP THE  PLACE ODOROUSLY CORRECT,   NOT  PICKING UP THE ONE MOUND IN THE DRIVEWAY CAN CAUSE A SMELLY GLOB EVERY 96 INCHES FOR  HUNDREDS OF FEET  IF A CAR DRIVES THRU IT.... NOT TO MENTION THE WHEEL WELLS..

I WAS CRUSHED TO FIND WE DID HAVE 2 PEOPLE AT DOG FEST WHO  HAD A "SOFT STEP"  I BRAGGED A PERFECT SCORE OF NOT ONE..-- TURNS OUT  THERE WERE 2-- WHICH ISN'T BAD WHEN YOU CONSIDER 50 DOGS ON THE P[ROPERTY-- PROBABLY 2 MOVEMENTS PER DAY.. AND - LIKE BENTLEY-- A FEW WALKIN -POOPERS.  BENTELY IS GOOD FOR 3 PER...

WE HAVE BEEN VERY LUCKY LATELY  TO HAVE "MOUNDS OR BETTER"  INSTEAD OF PANCAKES--  OR HEAVEN FORBID PROJECTILE POOPIES...
************
ON A DIFFERENT NOTE...
RENEE HAS LEFT US... AND GONE TO WASHINGTON ( STATE)  HER PRESENCE IS SORELY MISSED... HOWEVER....AS THEY SELL THERI HOUSE, SHE LET ME KNOW  WE COUDL GO AND TAKE WHATEVER WAS STILL THERE... AND SHE MENTIONED A LADDER.

I AM SURE SHE MENTIONED THE ALUM  LADDER JUST TO GET ME THERE WITH TRAILER... BECAUSE ONCE THERE, SHE KNEW I COULD NOT RESIST THE COLLECTION OF.... JUNQUE-- AND WE DID FILL THE TRAILER.... I SAY WE... THAT IS STEVE AND RYAN DID THE LUGGING...

I WILL TELL YOU HOW BAD I AM...... THE JUNK MAN WHO WAS CLEARING OUT THEIR  BASEMENT TOOK ME ASIDE AND SAID " YOU ARE THE ONE WITH ALL THOSE DOGS.. RIGHT?... I GAVE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS TO  THE IPSWICH JUNKMAN SO HE COULD DROPP OFF ANY GOODIES"  NOW HOW IS THAT FOR A REPUTATION...!

FROM RENEE'S WE DID GET A BEAUTIFUL EXPENSIVE  6 FOOT SOLID WORK TABLE-- ...WITH A VICE GRIP ON ONE END... I HAVE SEEN THEM AND NEVER FIGURED I HAD ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY ONE...IT IS  A PRESENT TO BUD FOR THE BACK OF THE G TENT... THIS WILL FREE UP THE 2 BLUE PICNIC TABLES SO THE G TENT WILL BE  AGREEABLY FILLED WITH  PROPER WOOD PICNIC TABLES....  AND ALOT OF SPACE FOR CHAIRS...

THE REST OF THE STUFF--- ALOT OF LIGHT BULBS... MORE WATER HOSE..SHOVELS, RAKES AND  TRASH CANS.... INCLUDINE A WHOLE TRASH CAN OF GRASS SEED...  
NOW I ASK YOU ... HOW COULD I LEAVE THAT  BEHIND???   I DID LEAVE THE FIREWOOD -- I WAS AFTRAID TO MENTION IT TO STEVE AND RYAN-- WHO'S FACES WERE A LITTLE RED FROM LUGGING UPHILL.
THE SIGNIFICANT PILE IS NOW  DUMPED AT THE END OF THE G TENT-- BECAUSE JANINE NEEDS THE TRAILER AT ABOUT NOON TODAY..
I HAVE SAID BEFORE   HOW DOES ANYONE LIVE WITHOUT A HUGE TRAILER TO RETRIEVE  VALUABLE STUFF FROM THE ROADSIDE OR DUMPS???
MEGAN, OUR NUMBER 1  COLLECTOR OF SOFAS- IS A GOOD EXAMPLE.

IN PREP OFR NEXT EAR'S DOGFEST, WE WILL NEED THE KIND OF TABLES WE RENTED-- AND FOLDING CHAIRS.  I AM SURE WE /YOU ALL  CAN FIND THEM ON CRAIG'S LIST-- SO IF THERE IS A  BUNCH FOR SALE-- OR FREE-- LET ME KNOW.
HAVE TRAILER ... WILL COLLECT.

Hi everyone,

Interesting thing happened today. Deb was with John and Jessie walking at the mall when John’s legs starting feeling weak and then he got sweaty and light headed. As he continued to walk to a nearby bench, she pressed against him and kept her eyes on his face. When John sat down on the bench Jessie stood in front of John with her body over both his legs, a posture she doesn’t typically do. We are sure that she was protecting him.  This is not the first time we have seen her behave in what we think is a protective way with John - we continue to be amazed at her apparent intuition and concern for him, especially at this early time in their relationship.

We still have lots of work to do to help them become a “well oiled machine” together, but we are constantly surprised and pleased with Jessie’s abilities and love for John and what she has meant to him already.
Thanks again (how many times can we say that?) for your hard work, your patience with us, and what you have given to John and our family.
See you Monday morning.
Paul and Deb

PAUL AND  DEB---- YOU HAVE ALMOST  ARRIVED AT THE POINT OF -- LEAVE THEM ALONE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO...  ALOT OF THIS STUFF IS  NOT SOMETING YOU CAN TRAIN FOR....  BRAVE THE STORM.... IF IS NOT A DISASTER, SEE IF JOHN AND JESSIE CAN FIGURE IT OUT ON THEIR OWN... I WILL SEE YOU MONDAY MORNING.... MAYBE I CAN TRICK YOU  INTO BUYING  ME  LUNCH ON A "TRAINING TRIP" TO A NICE RESTAURANT.

Hi Carlene
Things  with Emmett are getting easier and easier, I get more confident with him each day. When I'm out and about people are amazed at the things he is able to do for me. We finally was able to get him weighed and he is 156.5 lbs. In a while, my wife, Emmitt and I are going out for dinner.

Thank you for hosting Dog Fest. This Dog Fest was my first visit to SDP. My husband and I loved our time spent there. We tried to do our share of helping. We brought our own poo pickers and each day tried to out do each other picking up shit. Not everyone of our friends could understand our excitement to go on a mini vacation and pick up poo. Their loss! My husband seemed to find collecting the garbage out of the cans fun as well! Enjoyed meeting some of the recipients and Laura was a great tour guide on our first day! Loved meeting you. Love all that you do with Service Dog Project. Your a very special person to do what you do. 

Youre a pip! Anytime something comes out of your mouth, you crack me up! Love your sense of humor. I put off for 2 days my start for cancer treatment and when I told my oncologist why......you should have seen the puzzles look! Pick up poo from Great Danes?.....he didn't get my excitement. Well again thanks for all you do to try to help people. Hope to be able to visit again. If you are ever at Smucker's Harness's on rt 23 in PA, stop by, we live off rt 23! Take care Nancy and Charlie Crowley Lancaster County PA
