MARCH 13 2016
we are getting there-- if only we knew where THERE  is. 

WELL... WE ARE SOLVENT-BILLS PAID.. DOGS WARM , FED,  VERY HAPPY, AND WELL STARTED TO A LIFE OF SERVICE DOGGING,
I HAVE TO ADMIT THESE TRAINERS ARE DOING A  JOB BEYOND FANTASTIC... AND I AM WELL AWARE THAT  "PRIDE GOETH BEFORE A FALL" .. CAROLINE WAS HERE LAST NIGHT WITH CLARK.
  CLARK CLEARLY SAID "FINALLY  I GET A REAL PERSON  WITH WHOM I CAN ENJOY LIFE"
SHE GOT UP WOBBLY AS USUAL, AND HE SWUNG INTO POSITION NICE AS COULD BE - WITHOUT A WORD.-- THIS IS AFTEER ?24 HOURS? OF ASSOCIATION AND 4 HRS OF OFFICIAL WORK WITH A TRAINER-- KATI.-  KATI WAS NOT THE OFFICIAL TRAINER OF CLARK... THE LIST IS LONG... MEGAN  STEVE  COLLEEN  SHARRON AND EVERYONE HERE WHO EDUCATED HIM TO  BE A VERY NICE DOG, ALONG WITH ALL THE PEOPLE WHO DONATED TO HIS SUPPORT.
WE HAVE A COUPLE MORE IN HIS LITTER   COMING ALONG NICELY-- AND THEN.... THE BIG BUNCH OF 31.. I HAD THOUGHT IN THAT 31 THERE WOULD BE 5 OR 6 WHO WOULD BE FF FOR SOME REASON... BUT SO FAR THEY ARE ALL SPECTACULAR-- WITH THE POSSIBLE EXCEPTION OF GRETCHEN.. THE ONE IN THE HOUSE .. WHO IS GETTING %^&*()  SPOILED. 

 THE EASIEST WAY I CAN EXPLAIN HOW OUR DOGS WORK.... IS... IF I WENT OUT ANS STARTED TO PICK UP A 50 POUND BAG OF HORSE FOOD... SOMEONE WOULD COME ALONG AND SAY  "MAY I HELP YOU?" -- AND THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT CLARK DID LAST NIGHT AS CAROINE WENT OUT THE FRONT DOOR...  HE SWUNG RIGHT IN PLACE--EYES ON HER..

HE HAS   "IT"...

SO IF WE CAN DEFINE WHERE   "THERE" IS AND WHAT  "IT" IS. WE WOULD BE IN GREAT SHAPE.

I CAN NOT LEAVE OUT AVA-- AND CINDY
SHE IS DOING  Very well. Actually well enough that I didn’t bothER  looking at my email all day. Ava is far more interesting than the computer.  She seems to be getting quite comfortable at her new home. Random, our cat has felt it his right to drink from Ava’s water and lay on Ava’s fluffies, but told Ava she should not sniff the cat’s bed. He’s taken a few swipes at her, but they are both happy to sleep side by side on the reclining love seat.


Thanks again to everyone for everything!
Cindy

THE OTHER TWO IN THE  LITTER ARE GOING GREAT GUNS-- WITH THE ONLY PROBLEM IS MERLE'S  "HAPPY TAIL"
  THIS IS ANOTHER TOPIC FOR EDUCATION-- DANES GET A HAPPY TAIL FROM BANGING IT ON HARD OBJECTS--- LIKE KENNEL WALLS,  DOORWAYS. CAR BUMPERS. WHATEVER-- THERE SEEMS TO BE A CERTAIN PLACE/ OR CONDITIONS WHICH CAUSE THE SKIN TO SPLIT.. AND THEN IS IT FUN.. BRIGHT RED BLOOD SPRAYED IN EVERY DIRECTION..  THE HAPPIER, THE MORE SPRAY...
NOW IT IS POSSIBLE TO RUN TO THE VET WITH IT... AND IF YOU ARE NEW TO YOUR VET, HE/SHE WILL WITH GREAT AUTHORITY TELL YOU ABOUT THE SPECIAL BANDAGE HE CAN PUT ON TO CURE THE PROBLEM-- IF YOU HAVE BEEN AWHILE WITH THAT VET-- AS WE HAVE WITH DR.GEORGE.... HE WILL STAND THERE AND SAY  "WHAT DO YOU WANT  ME TO TRY THIS TIME?"  OR EVEN "WHAT  DO YOU EXPECT ME TO DO WITH IT?"

BECAUSE IN MY EXPERIENCE THERE IS NOT A BANDAGE THT WIL STAY ON FOR MORE THAT 24 HOURS.... AND  UNLESS YOU ACCIDENTLY HIT THE JACKPOT , THE ONLY REAL CURE IS TO CROP THE TAIL.... AND IF I HAD MY WAY   ALL GREAT DANE PUPS WOULD HAVE THIER TAILS CROPPED--  BUT IT WOULD BE DONE UNDER ANESTHESIA - AND NOT JUST CHOPPED OFF WHEN THEY ARE BORN.
NOT ONLY  DO THEY GET IN THE WAY, BUT WITH A DANE, THE SWING OF THE TAIL IS ABOUT 32" FROM THE FLOOR-- WHICH IS ABOUT THE AVERAGE  LENGTH OF A MAN'S INSEAM.
SO THERE !

WE ARE EXPECTING  SOME INTERESTING PEOPLE TODAY AT STEW... WE HAVE HAD SOOOOO MANY CALLS FROM THE BELLA AND GEORGE TAPE.. WHICH BY THE WAY..  WE ARE USING THE  SECOND ABC TAPE AS A DEMO TAPE... IT IS QUICK NSD TO THE POINT AND INCLUDES THE AWARD CEREMONY--
