NOV 6 2015
I HAD 2 NICE  SMALL CARDBOARD BOXES  TO START THE PUPS ON RIP AND TEAR LESSONS, BUT SOMEONE CLEANED HOUSE....   THERE IS A TERRIFFIC PHOTO OF 4 OF OPALS PUPS ALL SITTING VERY NICELY IN THEIR NEW VESTS PRIOR TO THEIR SOJOURN INTO TOPSFIELD TO AMUSE ALL THE SHOP OWNERS IN TOWN... APPARENTLY THEY ALL CAME OUT OF THEIR RESPECTIVE STORES TO GOOGLE AT THE FUNNY HAPPY PUPS BEING  TRAINED BY..MEGAN AND MARGARET????

TODAY WE MUST INVESTIGATE THE AGE OF THE PUP... IS  IT 6 WEEKS SO WE CAN GIVE THE SHOTS???   I DON'T SEE WHY YOU FOLK CAN'T KEEP US UP TO DATE ON THINGS LIKE SHOTS.... THIS IS  STRAIGHT FROM GEORGE MYERS  ...
yes do vacines at  6,9,12 and 16 weeks
More frequent than I usually do but given the risk I would do that and it is pretty damn safe to do
YOU GUYS DO NOT MISS A THING... SO WOULD YOU PLEASE KEEP TRACK OF THAT INFORMATION AND KEEP US ON  OUR TOES ????  NOW THAT I LOOK AT IT...  THAT IS 4 SHOTS FOR 32 PUPS AND I BETTER CHECK THE SUPPLY  BECAUSE SOMETIME--- YET TO BE DISCOVERED  WE NEED TO GIVE A YEARLY BOOSTER TO THE  REST.... PROBABLY ON THE ANIVERSERY OF THE PARVO EPISODE OF ? LAST YEAR...  MULTIPLYING ALL THAT OUT SOUNDS LIKE I NEED TO HAVE STOCKPILED 175 SHOTS---- AND I KNOW I HAVE ONLY ABOUT 75 LEFT  with only one litter " shot" -- -- IT IS SIMPLE TO ORDER... EXCEPT YOU DO NOT ORDER VACCINES ON A FRIDAY-- OR THURSDAY... BECAUSE THEY ARRIVE CHILLED  AND FEDEX IS GOOD... BUT.... IT IS BETTER TO ORDER ON A MONDAY OR TUESDAY..

 THANKS TO THE CHICKEN BRICK PROGRAM, WITH   YOUR SUPPORT  I AM NOT GOING TO SKIMP ON GEORGE'S INSTRUCTIONS TO SAVE A BUCK OR TWO.... I'LL JUST DO IT...  THANKS TO  ALL YOU...  ESPECIALLY IF YOU  HELP KEEP THE WEEKS STRAIGHT.  

GOING BACK OVER YESTERDAYS  TO DO LIST ...

I THINK THE CALENDAR IS  "TO BED"  KITTY AND ANNE  MADE A FEW CHANGES-- THEY ARGUED PUNCTUATION WHILE I TOOK A NAP AT MY DESK... BUT FINALLY DECIDED IT WAS READY..  I WAS FASCINATED BY THE FAC THAT BOTH KITTY AND ANNE   WOULD BE PERSONALLY OFFENDED IF THEY  MISSED A COMMA OR QUOTATION MARK.
SOMEONE REFERRED TO  THE EXERCISE   AS SIMILAR TO REARRAINGEING THE DECK CHAIRS ON THE TITANIC...
I AM MORE OF THAT ILK...   ANY RATE IT IS PROMISED BEFORE T'DAY... IT IS A THING OF BEAUTY -- PER USUAL...

 I DID 2 BLOGS  -- ONE ON THE FACT THAT ADELAIDE'S NOSE- WHICH HAD  ONLY  A FEW BLACK DOTS ON IT AT BIRTH (PHOTO) AND A CURRENT PHOTO SHOWS IT IS FILLING IN WITH BLACK... I HAVE HEARD THIS BUT NEVER DOCCUMENTED WITH PHOTO PROOF..-THOSE PHOTOS WERE ON MARKS SHUTTERFLY.....-- AND THE SECOND WS ON OPAL'S APPROACH TO FAST FOOD TO THE PUPS-- BY STANDING NURSING ALL 8 AT ONCE..  THE BLOGS  SHOULD APPEAR ON THE EXPLORE BLOG SHORTLY..
I DID CHANGE THE WISH LIST, I WENT TO THE FAIRGROUNDS WITH CHAOS, BENTLEY AND AUDRY... THEY BEHVED PERFECTLY... TOOK KIARA  OUT TO THE TARP SALE AT HARBOR FRIEGHT- SPENDING THE GIFT CARD SOMEONE SENT... AND SWATTED 3 FLYS ON BAILEY  .  A VERY SUCCESSFUL DAY.

KIARA BEHAVED PERFECTLY IN THE CAR AND STORE, BUT BACK ON THE FARM SHE DID TACKLE ANOTHER DANE...BROKEN UP BY A VERY CONFUSED MAGNUS( MEGAN'S DOG) THAT REALLY WASHES HER OUT OF HERE....  WE WILL TRY THE E-COLLAR-- WHICH WILL WORK... BUT NO WAY CAN SHE BE HANDLED BY  SOMEBODY LIKE BELLA----AND... AS I OFTEN SAY  --IF YOU CAN'T CONTROL A DANE WITHOUT USING YOUR OWN MUSCLES, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A PROBLEM GETTING YANKED AROUND...
SHE CAN NOT GO OUT IN  A SERVICE DOG VEST UNLESS MEGAN, STEVE  OR I TAKE HER.-- THE E COLLAR HAS BEEN KNOWN TO FIX ANY SUCH AGRESSION-- BUT IT WILL HAVE TO BE PROVEN WITH HER... SHE IS SMART...
SHE WILL BE WEARING A DUMMY COLLAR FOR A FEW DAYS WHILE WE CHARGE UP THE BATTERIES AND TEST THE COLLAR..... OTHERWISE SHE WOULD LEARN TO BEHAVE ONLY WHEN SHE HAD THE COLLAR ON...

THE ONLY OTHER TIME I HAVE USED A E-COLLAR ON A DANE WAS TO  TEACH MAUDE THAT EVERY THING ION THE EDGE OF A POND WAS NOT A FREINDLY FROG, BUT IN FLORIDA IT WAS LIKELY AN ALLIGATOR AND NOT TO BE TOYED WITH.

 THE OTHER DOG  I USED IT ON WAS A DOBERMAN BELONGING TO A FRIEND WH KILLED SEVERAL CATS-- I TURNED HIM LOOSE HERE WHEN WE HAD A BARN CAT, AND I CAN REMEMBER  THE CAT WAS SUNNING HIMSELF ON THE STEPS OF THE GUEST HOUSE--  THE DOBE RAN IN FOR THE ATTACK AND AS HE OPENED HIS MOUTH  I PUSHED THE BUTTON--  HE FLIPPED OVER BACKWARDS AND WAS TERRIFIED OF CATS EVER SINCE... TIMING IS EVERYTHING...
 SO THERE ARE THOSE WHO DON'T APPROVE...  BUT THERE ARE TIMES  ... IF THEY ASK FOR IT... THEY NEED TO GET IT--   CAR CHASING IS ANOTHER TIME IT IS A LIFE OR DEATH LESSON.
IT DOES HAVE A VARIABLE SETTING  WHICH GOES FROM TICKLE TO ZAP...

I HAVE HAD 2 CALLS LATELY ABOUT PEOPLE WHO HAVE PURCHASED A CUTE LITTLE DANE PUP  THEN 6 MONTHS LATER HAVE A JUVENILE DELINQUENT TO DEAL WITH..  HOW  MANY TIMES HAVE YOU HEAR ME SAY.....
 IF YOU DON'T DISCIPLINE YOUR DOG/CHILD  THE WORLD WILL . ONE IS AN "OLDER COUPLE" ( 65 YEARS .... HA !!) IN BEVERLY-- I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY GOT IT... BUT THEIR DOG TRAINER-- CAROL-- - WHO IS A FRIEND OF MINE-- CALLED DURING MAILCALL LAST NIGHT   WITH ALL THE DETAILS... THE DOG HAS NO  " WHOA "   OR "KNOCK IT OFF" AS MEGAN WOULD SAY. 

HAVING ALOT OF REACTION TO THE BELLA AND GEORGE STORY ON ABC NEWS---HERE ARE TWO OF THE LONGER VERSIONS..

SO MANY OF YOU SAW HIM BORN..... THAT IS WHAT MAKES THIS SO IMPRESSIVE... LAST TIME I SAID ," IF WE GET ONE MORE GEORGE PER LITTER IT IS WORTH IT"  THE  FACEBOOK WORLD CAME CRASHING DOWN ON MY HEAD FOR OVER POPULATION OF DOGS AND IF I ONLY WANTED ONE DOG I SHOULD GET IT FROM A SHELTER..."   WELL I HAVE TRIED SHELTER DOGS AND THEY ARE NOT BRED WITL THE CARE OF OURS AND JUST DID NOT WORK....  PLUS EVERY PUP WE PRODUCE WILL HAVE A HAPPY HOME SOMEWHERE-  SO I WILL STILL SAY ... IF WE HAVE ONLY ONE MORE GEORGE A YEAR WE WILL A SUCCESS--- ANYONE WHO DOES NOT AGREE... WATCH THESE VIDEOS AND THEN ARGUE THE POINT WITH BELLA'S PARENTS...
WE AIN'T CHANGING OUR MODUS  OPERANDI.

  1. I have to ask, what is the purpose of teaching... TO START THE PUPS ON RIP AND TEAR LESSONS,..why do you want to teach them how to destroy something? this can lead to destructive behavior, ie...someone sent in a large pumpkin toy, i saw on cam some adult dog tear this apart( and there were ppl around watching this)..if it was me sending this with my money, i would be upset..money down the drain, but maybe that person didnt care, like tossing money out the window..sorry, doesnt make sense to me

  2. You have more than one George. You have many great dogs out there. Willow, Teal, Wendy, Elsie, Ivy, Casper, Sir Thomas, Lola, to name a few, these are all GREAT dogs. It's just the combination of Bella and George that is extra appealing. Rachel is kind enough to share them with the rest of us. They are perfect ambassadors for SDP, and we are all in love with them. But you put lots of great dogs out there that just don't have the same cuteness factor that they do (sorry Lynne and the other handlers ��).
