NOV 15 2016
daily doggie  aka  doggie daily

GRACE AND I DID THE ROTARY JOB YESTERDAY-- WENT VERY WELL--THEY ALL OOOOOO'D AND AAAAAAH'D AND LAUGHED IN THE RIGHT PLACES  - ALWAYS A SIGN THE AUDIENCE IS AT LEAST PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU ARE SAYING... I BROUGHT THAT VIDEO WITH ME.... INTENDING TO RUN IT BEFORE OR AFTER I TALKED...  JUST AS AN EXPERIMENT.... BUT THEY SET IT GOING WHILE I WAS TALKING-- IT REALLY WAS NOT SET TO RUN THAT WAY-- SO HERE I AM AGAIN....WITH ONE IDEA THAT WORKS AND NEEDS THE IDDY BIDDY CLEAN UP WITH ANOTHER IDEA BATTERING AAT ME FOR ATTTENTION...

PLUS   CATHI-- FROM TOWER OF HOPE SENT A LETTER SAYING THEY WERE GRANTING US $30K--- WHAT A BLESSING THAT WILL BE...GOLDIE IS AT IT  AGAIN..  CATHI SAID IN HER LETTER THAT THE  TRANSFER OF THE INFORMATION DID NOT WORK ELECTRONICALLY AND THE FACT THAT WE HAD SNAIL MAILED THE STUFF WAS WHAT HTEY WENT ON-- I THINK I REMEMBER SAYING TO SOMEONE 
"I KNOW THEY DIDN'T ASK FOR THE SNAIL MAIL- BUT LETS SEND IT ANYWAY"  HAS TO HAVE BEEN GOLDIE AT WORK AGAIN!!
SO TODAY I HAVE TO DIG OUT  ALL THA GRANT STUFF AND SEND IT TO HER   I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO  SEND HER A ½ HR VIDEO  WITHOUT THE CHICKEN STUFF-- JUST AN AMUSING  LOOP EXPLAINING WHAT WE DO--  SHOULDN'T TAKE  ME LONG TO JUST WIPE OUT THE CHICKEN PARTS   I KNOW SHE IS WORKING HARD AT HOLDNG FUNDRAISERS--- WE HAVE HUNG IN THERE HELPING WITH APPEARENCES...  WHICH STARTED OUT ON THE SHIP INTREPID-- AND WOUND DOWN TO FUNCTION HALL THEN A CAR DEALERSHIP. SO IF THIS VIDEO WOULD HELP HER ENTERTAIN HER DONORS-- WE BETTER GET IN THERE.

 I HAVE ALOT OF WORK TO DO TODAY... AND ANNE IS NOT HERE TO HELP ME FIND THE STUFF WE SENT...
THE COMPUTER SAVES EVERYTHING..... MAY BE RIGHT... BUT MORE DESCRIPTIVE IS   THIS COMPUTER HIDES EVERYTHING IN A MASSIVE PILE OF EVERYTHING-- AND ONLY PEOPLE WITH A MIND LIKE CAMERA MARK  CAN FIND ANYTHING.  
HE WAS SO KIND TO SEND ME ALL HIS PICTURE FILES AT ONE POINT... 43,000 ( LITERALLY)  ON AN EXTERNAL DRIVE.

I HAV4 NOT TOUCHED IT--  IF HE THINKS I COULD SORT OUT ALL THAT --- HE IS NUTTTTTS -- BUT IF I ASK HIM TO FIND ONE PICTURE, HE CAN GO RIGHT TO IT... "OH I REMEMBER THAT PHOTO... IT WAS 3 WEEKS AFTER DOGFEST 2 YEARS AGO, AND  THERESA WAS THERE WITH A GREY SEATSHIRT, WHILE I WAS PHOTOGRAPHING  OLIVER"...... ETC ETC 
OH I WISH  I HAD SUCH A MEMORY. !!  HE IS AMAZING....

SO GRACE DROVE MY CAR... AND SHE DIDN'T HIT ANYTHING..  COMING OR GOING--- THAT MAY SOUND STRANGE TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF HAVING ME AS A PASSENGER  WHILE YOU WERE DRIVING.  I THINK NERVOUS  BACKSEAT DRIVER WOULD PUT IT MILDLY...  WE HAD BENTLEY AND ARIOT WITH US--  I AM WATCHING ARIOT  CAREFULLY FOR SIGNS THAT HER DEAFNESS WOULD AFFECT HER ABILITY TO  WORK... I SAW NOTHING.  SHE WAS PERFECTLY BEHAVED.

*******
THE USUAL PROBLEM WITH DEAF DOGS IS THAT IF A PERSON STARTLES THEM BY PATTING THEM UNEPECTED LY  THEY CAN TURN AND BITE...    THIS HAPPENED TO MY GRANDSON COLBY... THEY WERE AT A FRIEENDS HOUSE FOR DINNER.. AND THE PEOPLE DID  NOT REALIZE THAT HTEIR AGING SHELTIE HAD GONE DEAF-- SO COLBY-- AT AGE ?4? WENT TO PAT THE DOG WHILE IT WS ASLEEP AND IT BIT THRU HIS UPPER LIP-- BIG TIME...  AMBULANCE... BOSTON HOSPITALS... STUFF LIKE THAT-- I FELT LIKE PUTTING  A SIGN AROUND HIS NECK "IT WAS NOT A DANE"
WITH THAT IN MIND, WHEN WE HAVE A DEAF DOG, FROM BIRTH WE PRACTIDCE PATTING UNEXPECTEDLY AND SHOVING A TREAT AT THEM-- SO WHEN THEY ARE "GRABBED"   THEY EXPECT SOMETHING PLEASENT.  MAY BE ODD-- BUT IT HAS WORKED SO FAR...  MANY DOGS  GO DEAF AS THEY AGE.. SO ANYBODY WITH A DOG SHOULD BE AWARE OF THAT CONCEPT...

HECK... NOT ONLY DOGS GO  DEAF...  AND LET ME TELL YOU , IT IS PRETTY ANNOYING.
WELL....THERE ARE TIMES WHEN IT IS A BLESSING IN DISGUISE.

ON TO  THIS IMOVIE  PROGRAM 
I AM MAKING PROGRESS..I THINK...

ALLISON AND HER WHEELCHAIR PULLING DOG--- THE VIDEO WAS GOOD-- HE WAS PULLING WITHVERY LITTLE EFFORT TOTALLY ENJOYING  THE PROCESS... AND TH ELOOK ON ALLISON'S FACE WAS  ONE OF A PERSSON TRAVELING FASTER THAN THEY HAD IN MIND... BUT ENJOYING THE TRIP...

Hey Carlene 
You can't tell from the video but this is all uphill. He pulled me for probably a quarter of a mile, all uphill. He got distracted when a man stopped me to talk but quickly got back into rhythm. He's doing great! (See in the video where he even slowed down without me correcting with chain, only voice ? He's never done that!)
I can't get the video to attach. I will send it in another email.

OMG he just almost got the front door open by himself. I didn't see it but I would guess that he nosed the handle up and not down. The door was cracked when I got there though. I have seen him try and nose it before but he never did anything. He's a smart boy!!
