SO MUCH GOING ON THAT I FORGOT MOST OF IT. SORT OF LIKE THE POT OF KALE SOUP THAT SCOOTER KAREN BOUGHT FOR SUNDAY STEW... EVERYONE THOUGHT IT WAS WONDERFUL AND SWIGGED IT DOWN --- WITH GUSTO--- AND I WATCHED WITH AMAZEMENT- AS I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN CONVINCED THAT GREEN SLIMY THINGS LIKE COOKED SPINACH WERE FROM THE DEVILS KITCHEN AND WOULD POISON ME.... THERE WAS A WHOLE BUNCH OF REALLY GOOD STUFF IN THAT POT- BUT I COULDN'T GET PAST THE GREEN STUFF .--- MAYBE.... LIKE THE UPCOMING WEEKS SCHEDULE...?
THAT WOULD MAKE ME A DEBBIE DOWNER FOR THE DAY.... BEING INFLUENCED ONLY BY THE NEGATIVE STUFF I WAS BAD !
.-----THERE WAS ONE PERSON HERE YESTERDAY , I HAD TO RUN FOR THE T T ENT-- I COULD N OT STAND HER COMMENTS.... ONE AFTER ANOTHER-- SHE GOT GOING ON ALL THE THINGS WRONG WITH BAILEY-- AND SHE WAS VERY OBSERVANT-- DOWN TO HER TOENAILS BEING SO LONG THEY MUST BOTHER HER., ALONG WITH DID I THNK HER JOINTS BOTHERED HER MUCH , AND THE BAD SORE STILL ON HER RUMP.. AND THE EXTRA TOE SHE SEEMS TO BE GROWING... AND SHE REALLY THOUGHT SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD BY NOW ANYWAY... HOW MUCH LONGER DO I THINK....... I HAD TO LEAVE....
THE DOG IS 12.5 YEARS OLD AND STILL TROTTING AROUND THE YARD-- I DOUBT SHE COULD CLIMB UP OIN THAT TREE AGAIN-- BUT YOU KNOW... SHE WOULD TRY--- A GAME GAL - ( THE DOG... NOT THE WOMAN)
THE HALF FULL -- HALF EMPTY ARGUMENT.
SO --- HALF SICK.... NEAL IS IN THE QUARENTINE UNIT... IN THE BACK OF THE LAUNDRY--- WE HAD THAT SET UP FOR ??SYMON??? DURNIG THE PARVO BIT??? HE STILL HAS NO TEMP- BUT THAT DISCHARGE FROM HIS NOSE PORTENDS OMINOUS THINGS... IT TOO IS SLIGHTLY GREEN.... STEVE TOOK HIM TO DAH--- SO HE IS ON 2 ANTIBIOTICS-- AND A BAG OF FLUIDS-- ( WHICH WE STILL HAVE PLENTY OF...) HE IS ACTIVE AND ALL SYSTEMS ARE "GO" BUT IT IS THAT GREEN STUFF... GREEN OUT OF A DOG IS NEW TO ME... MAYBE THE EUROPEAN GERMS ARE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT--
THE-- IN HOUSE--- PUPS THIS MORNING ARE AMELIA AND JETTA-- THEY SLEPT WELL AND ARE NOW WANDERING THE AREA OUTSIDE THE KITCHEN... WHICH INCLUDES THE YUPPY PUPPY... BEFORE YOU ALL BUY ONE, THIS OLDER MODEL IS ONE OF THE FINEST MACHINES I HAVE EVER OWNED...IT HAS BEEN BEAT UP AN D BATTERED UPON UNKINDLY FOR ?30 YEARS.. AND WORKS PERFECTLY. THE NEW ( SMALLER ONES) ARE NOWHERE NEAR AS GOOD.
I AM ASHAMED TO SAY -- IN THE GOOD OLE DAYS EVERY PUP BORN HERE COULD USE THAT THING...
MY FAULT... I NEED TO TEACH THESE PUPPY SITTERS HOW TO TEACH "YUPPY"--
IT IS NOT EASY-- FIRST YOU TAKE A HANDFUL OF TYLENOL SO YOU BACK DOESN'T GIVE OUT... THEN YOU BEND OVER -- POISED--- SO IF THE PUP'S NOSE-- OR FOOT GOES ANYWHERE NEAR THE BONE HANDLE, YOU TTRIGGER IT... IT HAS TO BE SPLIT SECOND-- BECAUSE EVERY TIME YOU DO NOT DO IT PERFECTLY, UP ARE TEACHING THEM TO DO SOMETHING WRONG... IT IS THE ULTIMATE IN CLICKER TRAINING.. AND IF A DOG IS IN THE TRAINING PHASE AND YOU ARE NOT THERE TO SUPERVISE... IT HAS TO BE COVERED WITH A LAUNDRY TUB-- SO THEY DON'T GET ANY BAD IDEAS...
PUPPY TRAINING 202...... AMELIA JUST GOT NEAR BAILEY'S FOOT... AND BAILEY GROWLED.. PUPPY SITTER #693 LIFTED THE PUPPPY BACKWARDS AWAY FROM THE FOOT. IT SOLVED THE PROBLEM, AND AT TIMES MAY BE NECESSARY... BUT THE SDP WAY WOULD HAVE BEEN TO FIRST( SPLIT INSTANT FIRST) SAY NO-- AND QUICKLY TAKE ONE FINGER AND SNAP IT ACROSS THE PUP'S NOSE -- DOESN'T HURT.. STARTLES THE PUP-- TGHAT IS WHAT BAILEY WOULD DO IF SHE WAS MORE AGILE--- THE "NO" GIVES THE PUP A CHANCE TO THINK
'WHAT IS HAPPENING. THE SNAP IS REALITY --- IF YOU GRAB AND PULL AWAY YOU GET "I WANT TO GO ONE WAY AND THEY ARE FORCING ME BACKWARDS WHICH I RESENT"
WE TRY NOT TO USE OUR MUSCLES TO MANAGE THE DOGS... THEY WILL OUTGROW OUR ABILITY TO DO THAT.
........LIKE ANY TEENAGER.
We are stilling running on a high from last night. It was such a amazing evening. So proud of my girls. They did an amazing job. Gabi got some good pictures. I was so proud of Bella standing there so well. Then having dinner with many who watched George be born and have followed Bella and George since
the very beginning. We also stopped in and said hi to all of them again at breakfast. Such great people and without their support and donations there may have never been a team Bella and George. So thank you all those that support Service Dog Project!
Then what a great day as a family we had. A wonderful follower gave us passes to Sea World. We were able to spend most of the day there. George did excellent while Bella walked or rode in the wheelchair. It wasn't overly crowded so was pretty easy to maneuver around. Gabi got to ride Manta a few
times. She loved that ride. She also rode Atlantis and we got pretty wet but it was nice out so we dried off fast. We were going to ride kraken but it was closed down. Bella loved the whale show the best. After the show we went down and talked to one of the trainers and boy did Bella have a lot of
questions for her. She sure comes up with some great ones. We fed the stingrays and got to touch the Dolphins. George stayed right in his down stay while Bella gave the dolphin some extra love.
We were back out our hotel for dinner and finally swimming! Bella was so excited. She actually didn't even
last long which is a sign of her just being tired. So she came up to the room soaked in a warm tub and then asked to go to sleep. For Bella to ask to go to bed means she must really be tired.
Tomorrow we head to Disney for the rest of the vacation. We are staying at Port Orleans and get picked up tomorrow at 8 so we can get there when it opens. The girls can't wait to spend the next 3 days there. The happiest place on earth!
Off to watch the Patriots if I can stay awake.
Love Bella and George 👣🐾👣🐾💕
