DEC 22 2015
OF COURSE....I AM NERVOUS ABOUT BAILEY... SO DON'T EXPECT MUCH TIL I GET PAST  THIS  OBSTACLE  .    SHE IS BETTER THAN SHE HAS BEEN -- THANKS TO GRACE'S CONSTANT CARE.... BUT  THIS TAIL THING HAS TO BE DRAGGING HER DOWN...-- OVERNIGHT I  THOUGHT OF DIFFERENT SOLUTIONS... ONE OF WHICH WAS CUT THE DANM TAIL OFF... EXCEPT I DON'T THINK WE CAN...   THAT IS RIGHT WHERE ALL THE INFECTION  HIDES..-- HER TAIL LOOKS DEAD... SHE CAN NOT-- OR WON'T MOVE IT-- IT PROBABLY HURTS SO SHE DOES NOT USE THOSE MUSCLES EVER... SHE IS VERY CLEVER ABOUT PEEING ON A HILL-- BUT SOMETIMES NEEDS A BABY WIPE TO CLEAN HER UP.. WHICH SHE FINDS EMBARRISING.

********
THE OTHER HEALTH ISSUE -----  KRINGLE HAD A TEMP OF 103.4 LAST NIGHT AND DID NOT EAT.-- THAT IS SEMI NORMAL UPSETTING OCCURANCE.. BUT IN LIGHT OF  NOT KNOWING WHAT WE ARE DEALING  WITH....OUR EARS PERKED UP.

*****
TRYING TO STERILIZE 12 ACRES IS IMPOSSIBLE, THE BENEFIT OF HAVING THE RUNNING ROOM  IS HARD TO DUPLICATE IN A STERILE ENVIRONMENT...  SUN IS GOOD BT CHOLROX IS BETTER...
AT CRAZY ACRES  ----EVEN THO WE HAVE SO MANY DOGS, THERE ARE BUILT IN HEALTH CHECKS HERE---  PRETTY MUCH  AT LEAST TWICE DAILY.... SO IF ANYTHING STARTS  WE SHOULD BE ON IT WITHIN 14 HOURS.  USUALLY THEIR FIRST INDICATION IS LACK OF INTEREST IN FOOD.
 THE FIRST HEALTH CHECK.. ARE THEY EATING?- THAT IS THE EASIEST AND QUICKEST ASSESSMENT- AND THE WAY WE FEED MAKES IT SIMPLE TO NOTICE...
THE SINGLE DOG FEEDING WITH TEH "WAIT" BIT ALSO GIVES THE FEEDER A CHECK TO SEE IF THERE IS ANYTHING COMING OUT OF ANY  FRONT END ORIFICE  -NOSE OR EYES- THAT SHOULD NOT BE THERE.  AND STANDIN G ON THEIR BACK LEGS IS A QUICK CHECK OF ANY HANGERS THERE AND TEH CONDITION OF THE HIPS..
 RUNNING LOOSE I WATCH FOR IRREGULARITIES OF STRIDE... (IN BOTH STAFF AND DOGS...)
LISTENING FOR GURGLES/PHLEM TYPE NOISES IS A NATURAL-- AND CURRENTLY WE HAVE ONE OR TWO...USUALLY  DISREGARDED.. IF THERE ARE NOT OTHER SYMPTOMS.  LINT , RUBY --ARE THE NOISE MAKERS- --NORMAL TEMPS
ANY QUESTION GETS THEIR TEMP TAKEN A COUPLE TIMES A DAY.... DO WE TAKE EVERY DOG EVERY DAY?  COURSE NOT.--- MANAGING A BUNCH OF DOGS BECOMES A QUESTION OF  WHICH ONES LOOK LIKE THEY DON'T NEED ATTENTION..
WITH THE ABOVE-- AT THE MOMENT- AS OF LAST NIGHT'S FEEDING--- KRINGLE DIDN'T EATSUPPER... BUT SHE HAD EATEN BREAKFAST ---AND GRACE  REPORTED AND TOOK THE TEMP  103.4... AND THAT WAS EMAILED  TO GEORGE WHO SAID TO BRING HER DOWN TODAY WITH HER MEDICAL RECORD....  -   KRINGLE IS IN WITH 2 OTHERS WHO ARE ALREADY EXPOSED TO WHATEVER  SO WE LEFT HER THRER OVERNIGHT.  THERE ARE 14 IN THAT BUILDING. AND TIL WE GET A BETTER LINE ON WHAT WE HAVE GOING ON - NO DOGS ARE MOVING THERI LIVING QUARTERS...  NORMALLY WE SHIFT DOGS FROM BUILDING  TO BUILDING  ON A DAILY BASIS  FOR VARIETY'S SAKE.
I HAVE ADDED... FOR THE MOMENT WE HAVE INSTITUTED A NOISE ASSESSMENT DEPT. STETHOSCOPES TO STEVE AND GRACE-- GRACE BEING AN RN  IS OUR PROFESSIONAL HEAR-ER- STEVE IS TO ASK GRACES OPINION  IF HE FINDS ANY NOISES HE DOES NOT UNDERSTAND.- IF GRACE REPORTS ANY...WE TAKE  TEMP AND ASK GEORGE.

STOOL REPORTS ARE DIFFICULT WHEN THEY ARE  2-3 OR 4 IN A KENNEL-- OR THE KITCHEN.-----.BY SEPARATING THEM WE CAN FIGURE OUT WHICH IS  THE  PENDING  POO PROBLEM...-- OR BETTER YET.. THE CAMERA PEOPLE NOITCE AND LET US KNOW.
ROCK CONTENT OF STOOLS CAN INDICATE  A KNOWN PROBLEM ....
HEAD SHAKING OR EAR CLEANING BY SIBLINGS  INDICATE EARS NEED CLEANING...
THERE ARE SOOOO MANY MORE --BENTLEY--- WILL TELL US IF SOMEONE IS COMING IN  HEAT--( OR HAS A VAGINAL INFECTION...)
*****
SO ON WE GO.. I EMAILED GEORGE ALREADY WITH KRINGLE'S TEMP AND HE SAID BRING HER DOWN.7:30  WHICH WE WILL DO
*****

i have written to natasha and let her know that we found neal to be the nicest personality pup we have ever had
he  was  a great guy... we did give him a happy life, but the past few days  his happiness was clearly over.

he did not have any normal kind of problem-- eventually  teh fluids that we were giving him just ran right thru - both ends
whatever it was , i wIll report the details as they come in  from the lab tests.
****************
PLEASE... ON WE GO WITH THIS-- CAN YOU ALL WATCH THIS AND PASS IT AROUND ASKING EVERYONE TO  SHARE ETC....GET THOSE NUMBERS UP !!
