OCT 26 2016
I FEEL FOR RACHAEL  WHO IS DOING SUCH A FANTASTIC JOB OF CARING FOR BELLA ( WITH SURGICAL LEG  REPAIR)  TRYING TO FIGURE OUT  WHICH PILL TO GIVE WHEN SO AS NOT TO OVERMEDICATE AND YET GET SOME SLEEP... IT IS A BIT LIKE THE OXYGEN INTHE AIRPLANE....  TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF OR YOU BOTH HAVE TROUBLES...
*****
AS FOR FARM NEWS...
 LOOK AT THIS.... MAYBE CUT AND PASTE???
**
I'M PRETTY SURE SHE IS PREGNANT. I TOOK THIS VIDEO SUNDAY AFTERNOON. SOMETHING IS MOVING AROUND IN THERE.

SURE LOOKS LIKE IT WAS NOT A WATERMELLON SEED. QUESTION IS... IS THEE MOVEMENT UNCONNECTED WITH THE OTHER DONKEY PUSHING ON HER BELLY ON THE OTHER  SIDE.  SURE LOOKS POSSIBLE...  WE NEED A MILK DEPARTMENT CHECK.....  MINI DONKEY-- SOMEONE WHO CAN GET DOWN ON THEIR KNEES AND LOOK.
****
AND THEN THERE IS THE CALENDAR---  WILLIAM WAS HERE... WE HAVE 12 PICTURES THAT ARE POSSIBLE... SO WE COUDL BE DONE... HOWEVER... WILLIAM IS WILLIAM AND THERE ARE 2 MORE HE WANTS TO TRY-- SO WE HAVE PLANNED TOMORROW BRFORE IT RAINS... OR FRIDAY AFTER IT RAINS.. AND SINCE IT INVOLVES ALL THE PUPPIES, IT WILL INVOLVE INGRID AND HER 3 FRIENDS... BOTH OF THESE SHOTS ARE A LITTLE TOO CLOSE TO TRAFFIC FOR US TO TRY SHORTHANDED...
NONE OF THESE PUPS HAVE BEEN ON A  FIIGURE 8 LEASH YET EITHER...
*******
I WILL TRY AND ARRAINGE TO HAVE  GRACE'S ARRIVAL ON CAMERA... I CAN NOT PROMISE-- THERE IS ALOT  TO ORGANIING A SPLIT SECOND FILMING....--    DROVE ME NUTS FOR YEAARS.... I WOULD GET A REQUEST  " I NEED A DOG  TO COME ONTO THE WSET  AND BARK"  SSO I WOU LD SHOW UP WITH A DOG WHO WOULD BARK ON COMMAND---  SO HELP ME... THIS IS TRUE... I  HAD TEH DOG COME ON SET AND BARK... AND THE DIRECTOR SAID TO ME..." I NEED THE DOG TO BARK ¼ SECOND SOONER" 

THIS CAMERA STUFF CAN GET PRETTY PICKY... THERE WAS ANOTHER SHOT FOR HOUGHTON MIFFLIN-- DOG SITTING ON THE STEPS OF A SCHOOL ( IN RHODE ISLAND-- I BORROWED  "CONNIE THE CORGI"-)-- ON A SET IT IS A RULE THAT ONLY TEH ANIMAL HANDLER IS ALLOWED TO HANDLE THE ANIMALS-- FOR GOOOD REASON...   THE DIRECTOR WANTED CONNIE TO SIT  ONE INCH CLOSER TO THE KID-   SHE WAS A SMALL DOG- HE WANTED HIS WAY QUICKLY SO HE PICKED HER UP AND SHE WENT THRU HIS THUMB WITH A QUICK BITE.  I COULD ONLY SMILE AS WE MOPPED UP BLOOD EVERYWHERE....
 CONNIE WAS A PERFECTLY TRAINED DOG... NOW THAT DIRECTOR IS BETTER TRAINED..  HOW MUCH BETTER IS THAT TRAINING THAN  TO SIT AROUND A TABLE AND DISCUSS  THE MERITS OF HAVING AN ANIMAL HANDLER ON SET. HE LEARNED  QUICK !
***
I USED CONNIE ALOT--- EVEN AT 16 YEARS OLD AND DEAF, SHE COULD COMMUNICATE -- AND LOVEDD WORKING.....THE BEST ONE SHE DID WAS.... WITHOUT A BREAK IN THE ROLL.... PICK UP A NEWSPAPER, JUMP UP PN A CHAIR   AND PUT IT IN THE BARREL LABLELED PAPER, THE BOTTLE IN THE "GLASS" AND A SODA CAN IN THE  "CANS"     -- WITH ME OFF CAMERA POINTING TO THE CORRECT TRASH CAN....
 THE ONLY ONE SHE "FAILED"   ON WAS-- THEY WANTED HER TO JUMP UP ON A  DINING ROOM TABLE AND STEAL A TURKEY LEG  AND RUN OFF WITH IT..  WHICH SHE DID... ONCE...    ACTUALLY TWICE....... WE HAD 2 TRYS AND THEN HAD TO GO WITH A FAKE TURKEY LEG.  SHE WAS A BITER-- AND THAT LEG WAS HER'S - I KNEW BETTER THAN TO TRY AND GET IT FROM HER..
GREAT DOG...
*********
And another positive about the things we learn from Crazy Acres...another dog's life was saved because of something I learned at the farm.
Everyone at work comes to me as a "dog expert" though I'm very clear with them that I am far from it. Anyway, a co-worker has a mastiff puppy that she was intending to show & breed.She called me over last week to ask my opinion. The puppy is 9 months old and had finished her first heat. About a week later she started dripping red again. I told her to watch her very carefully and any odd behavior-vomiting-diarrhea-seeming out of it-get her to the vet immediately because it could be pyometra. It was. They got her into surgery in time and she should make a full recovery.
Thanks SDP!  EILEEN (DUMPSTERKITTY)

    You are so right, Carlene! If you don't take care of yourself, how the heck are you going to take care of anyone else. If Rachel get's sick THEN who's going to take care of Bella? George is good but he does have his limitations!
