i am impressed..a true professional... 
 ***** 
recording  what was not there is totally foreign to my way of observing.
people with the ability to remember things not visable are astounding to  me.
i have so much --" if i can not see it,  it is non existent."
raises he11 with filing paperwork..  i watch theresa in amazement--
 she puts things in the draweer- and then can find them again...
**************
re: the isolation unit....
i am looking for floor plans only  ----and i have a feeling we need to go slightly wider..
 mostly because  we can not have a rug covered sleeping loft because we can not clean it..
so it would be kuranda beds ( CLEANABLE) which means  a 4'wide kennel  is not wide enought to walk past one...  and they would have to be up by the door- which is where a dog would want to be--  so a 5' kennel. and if we have a normal wall   made of 2x4 kind of things then covered with "something"  washable... that is another 6" per divider  . 24' is possible , but.. to add  anotehr few feet of wall/roof   would make the interier better
***
 then--- to stand around and look at it..  the t tent is 20 x 30- and simple to build- i built it years ago... and one post  may be sagging, but it has not collapsed even in the 4'snow last year... so the engineering there is proven to work..this building would have to be on a concrete slab-- with drains pre installed..-- so no sag there.
which would probably need a building permit-- cant get all that done before you can't pour concrete---
actually i am told you can pour concrete in freezing weather-- they put something like antifreeze in  the mix...
but then there might be mounds of snow...etc... it is looking like spring.
so we have time to think--floor plan only-  on paper..
*****
lynne has a great video of loading  her dog in the car... she gets in the drivers seat pushes a button to open the hatch and her dog runs around back and jumps in- she pushes the button and it closes... simple-
****
 i don't know how to imbed that kind of thing... but it is around..
*****
maybe i should make a new years resolution and go to the phone store  and see if they can get my phone back to only  making phone calls-  yesterday i somehow had hundreds of pictures some volunteer had posted somewhere...and could not use the phone.  and i really don't need my car to tell me every email i get  about  buying  the ultimate home security system...  which if i push teh wrong button   this siri woman will read teh entire thing to me while causing the windshield wipers to  wipe. 
 i want out !!

someone found this for me.

DD - Dec 14, 2015 Carlene White's tips for training on the Yuppy Puppy!
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...
***************
lotsa cut and paste.  
that lecture  about  "our dogs don't sit" by bella should have been taped --i can not tell you how many times i have listened to "What do you mean they don't sit?"  like their training is deficient...we try and stay with meaningful training--- it is less domineering-- and more educational...  rarely do you see any of us marching in circles with a dog "at heel"- ours is a more casual style of what works best.

From Bella's Mom:
 Today was a pretty lazy Sunday. Nothing wrong with that once in a while. Bella actually slept until 7:45. Kinda late for her. She can also sleep in tomorrow but I am sure I will see her around then anyway. She is sleeping in Gabi's bed again. Not sure if George likes that he can spread out on Bella's bed and
have it all to himself or if he misses her. I last night he was confused because he stayed on his 1/2 of the bed all night but tonight he is spreading out more. I think he knows she's ok. But this morning we hung around. Bella watched a Finding Bigfoot marathon this morning until it was time to go to the
 Kingdom Hall for our 1 meeting. Then we got home a little after 3, and watched a little football. It was kind of damp and gloomy so no outside playing.

 We had some friends over for dinner which was nice. George loved the extra attention. Bella taught our friend why George didn't know how to sit on
 command. She didn't understand why a service dog wouldn't know how to sit. Bella explained it to her saying if George knew how to sit and some random person asked him to sit while she was using him for support she would fall backwards on her back and that wouldn't be very good. She then showed
 her how if she needs to get George down how she will ask him to down and he will slowly lower and sometimes will help lower Bella on his way down. But it was a cool piece of information for someone who assumes all dogs should know how to sit. But how in George's case him not knowing how to sit on
 command is a protection for Bella. That was about the excitement of our night. Thanks for looking in on us and have a wonderful night.
 Love Bella and George

    1. If you are using Windows Operating Systems you would press and hold the CTRL key and tap the plus sign key. Each tap makes the print larger. To make it small you would tap the minus sign key.
