JAN 2 2016,
ALTHO I DON'T REALLY HAVE ANY ARGUEMENT WITH 2015, I LIKED THIS  CONCEPT.

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.  A
pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.

****************

YESTERDAY'S EXCITEMENT WAS THAT  NOT ONLY WAS IT JAN 1st BUT IT WAS ALSO FRIDAY----
THE REASON FOR THE CONFUSION WAS THAT JOYCE HAD SAID SHE WANTED TO GO TO PEASE ( AIRPORT)
TO BE A "PEASE GREETER" ON FRIDAY WITH SOME DOGS..  I SAID OF COURSE I WOULD GO-- AND THEN I WAS SHOCKED
TO HAVE HER ARRIVE ON JAN 1st....- MENTALLY I HAD FIGURED JAN 1st  WAS AN EXTRA DAY SLIPPED IN BETWEEN THURSDAY AND FRIDAY
BUT WE GOT OURSELVES TOGETHER AND MADE IT...

"PEASE GREETERS" ARE A BUNCH OF PARTY PEOPLE WHO MEET THE ARRIVING PLANES WHICH ARE 
FULL OF SOLDIERS GOING TO OR COMING FROM THE WAR-- OR WHATEVER IT IS-
I DON'T YET HAVE TH E  FULL PICTURE OF ALL THAT HAPPENED---
 BUT IT SEEMED LIKE AFTER WALIKNG DOWN A LINE OF HAPPY  CLAPPING PEOPLE  THEY WERE OFFERED SANDWICHES
AND THINGS LIKE PLAYING CARDS( AND OUR CALENDAR)B EFORE THEY WERE ALL LINED UP AND SHUFFLED BACK ONTO THE PLANE
WHICH BY THEN HAD BEEN REFUELED.. THERE SEEMED TO BE ALOT OF PEOPLE NOT IN UNIFORM-
 AND I HEARD TEH WORD   'CONTRACTOR'   USED FREQUENTLY..

THE DOGS-- BENTLEY AND CLARK  WERE- PER USUAL THE EYECATCHER AND MANY WANTED THEIR PICTURE WITH THE  BIG DOGS.
THIS IS ( HOPEFULLY ) A COPY/PASTE FROM THE PEASE GREETERS FACEBOOK PAGE...
FROM A DOG STANDPOINT-- IT WAS INTERESTING... BENTLEY "WORKED THE CROWD VERY WELL" ALL ALONE OFF LEASH TIL OTHER DOGS ARRIVED...    ---  IF THE TRUTH BE KNOWN  CLARK DID BETTER THAN BENTLEY   WHO HAD NOT BEEN EXPOSED TO A GROUP CLAPPING ALL AT ONCE... HE DIDN'T MISBEHAVE  BUT HE RAN FOR MY LAP... THE GOING AWAY CHEER ALSO THREW HIM MORE THAN CLARK.   THERE WAS A COLLECTION OF OTHER DOGS THEREMOSTLY SMALLER DOGS  ON THE END OF A LEASH..  
****

LET IT BE KNOWN ... IF YOU DON'T WANT SOMETHING POSTED, YOU BETTER LABEL IT CAREFULLY  "NOT FOR PUBLICATION...

I am the one that wrote that comment about the Parvo Aussie from France, that I purchased ten healthy years ago,and never regretted. I'm the American gal living in Austria, in Disqus known as Hansonni (AUSTRIA). I'm real happy to have seen you cut and paste my comment, because in this world of blaming/find fault it's just plain destructive to so many worthy efforts be thwarted, you gotta keep our common sense.

I enjoy looking in on what's happening at your crazy acres, each and every one of those Doggies are special one way or another. Happy New Year!

See I f that doesn't help the diarrhea

  1. For some reason George's comment is blacked out. However, the reports of happy and playing are very hopeful, in spite of the elevated temps and not perfect poos. Looks hopeful for one and all. Amen.

    1. If you use your mouse cursor to "select" the black area like you're going to copy and paste it, it should become visible. In case that doesn't work for you, this is what it says:
