DEC 26 2015
ANNIE DID  A NICE MAIL CALL LAST NIGHT-  SHE READ A BUNCH OF CARDS AND LETTERS WHILE TEH CP'S AND STAFF KIBITZED.  
THAT WAS AFTER PAM TURNED OUR COLLECTION OF FOOD INTO A WONDERFUL MEAL  MOSTLY FROM  IHEART AND CHARLOTTE...- AND WE STILL HAVE MORE FROZEN FOR THE NEXT ROUND...

THE PUPS WHO ARE SICK WEIGH HEAVILY ON MY MIND... GRACE HAS DONE  A WONDERFUL JOB CARING FOR THEM WITH GEORGE'S DIRECTIONS AND MEDICATIONS...-- 

LONG AGO GEORGE SAID WE DEFINETLY NEED A QUARENTINE KENNEL --- MAYBE  NOW IS THE TIME? - -- ANNE  IS APPLYING FOR  GRANT FROM A FAIRLY LOCAL  COMPANY, AND IF THEY COME THRU WE JUST MIGHT BE ABLE TO  BUILD A PROPER INFIRMARY IN  THE  PLACE WHERE  THE TEEPEE.. NOW IS.
WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO SPRAY KENNELS AND SCRUB WALLS AND FLOOR MADE OF CEMENT AND TILE-- NOT PORUS WOOD..  IF ANYONE WANTS TO SUBMIT A DESIGN.. PLEASE DO  SEND IT IN THE MAIL.. THE AREA COULD BE 20 X 24-- AND SHOULD CONTAIN PROVISION FOR SCRUB DOWN  AND FLOOR DRAINS  PLUS  MINI LAB WORK - COUNTER SPACE FOR MICROSCOPE AND THINGS.

WE ARE DOING THE BEST WE CAN WALKING IN AND OUT OF CHLOROX FOOTBATHS,  BUT  TEH DEAGLE HOUSE IS STILL PRIMARILY WOOD-- AND YOU JUST CAN NOT CLEAN THAT AS WE  WOULD LIKE TO.
THANKS TO OUR CAMERA PEOPLE --- WE HAVE A WONDERFUL SUPPLY OF ABOUT EVERYTHING EXCEPT A "WASHABLE " BUILDING.  SO I GUESS THAT IS NEXT.  THERE ARE MORE WIRES AND  PIPES UNDERGROUND IN THE AREA IN FRONT OF THE T TENT THAN IN TIMES SQUARE...  SOMEHOW WE CAN MANAGE--AND PROBABLY HAVE TO GET A BUILDING PERMIT FOR THIS ONE..  I THINK  THE "OLD GUY" WHO INSULTED ME IS RETIRED NOW..  BUT BUILDING INSPECTORS HAVE NEVER BEEN MY FAVORITE.  THEY LIKE PAPER PLANS....WITH STRAIGHT LINES...
*****
A THOUGHT FOR THE MOMENT--- SOOO MANY PEOPLE HAVE THANKED US FOR WHAT WE ARE DOING FOR PEOPLE.... WHEN IN MY MIND TEH PEOPLE ARE SECONDARY... THE DOGS ARE HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME-   EVERY ONE OF  THEM...  OF COURSE WE LOOK   AT GEORGE--- BUT THERE ARE OVER 100 ALL HAPPILY DOING AN INTERESTING JOB WITH NICE PEOPLE.  

I WISH THE REST OF ASSISTANCE DOG INTERNATIONAL WOULD REALIZE WHAT FANTASTIC  MOBILITY  SERVICE DOG A DANE MAKES---- ESPECIALLY IF THE PERSON DOES NOT  NEED TO HAVE THE DOG RETRIEVE SOME OBJECT...  THERE   ARE DOGS BETTER AT RETREIVING  NO DOUBT-- AND  A JACK RUSSEL MAKES A BETTER "HEARING EAR" DOG TO ALERT TO SOUNDS.. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO WALKING AROUND A DANE IS "WHERE IT IS AT" .
