THERE IS A SLEEPING LUMP OF PERSON AND DOG BETWEEN ME AND THE COFFEE POT... MAKING IT THE FIRST CHALLANGE OF THE DAY... COULD BE IT IS LAINE AND OLIVIA-- LAINE IS HERE TO HAVE PUPS IN ABOUT A WEEK, AND SHE IS VERY ATTACHED TO OLIVIA-- SO I AM ASSUMING THAT IS TH E COVERED LUMP.
GUSSIE HAS SETTLED DOWN WITH HER PUPS AND IS HAPPY TO HAVE HELP WITH THEM... THEY ARE ALL GAINING--LAURA DID A GREAT JOB GETTING DOWN TEH DESCRIPTIONS.
THERE IS NOTHING IN SCHOOL TO PREPARE YOU FOR A JOB LIKE THAT... TOO BAD-- THERE ARE SO MANY REAL LIFE PROBLEMS THIS IS CERTAINLY A GOOD ONE.. 6 BLACK AND WHITE PUPPS BASICALLY WHITE ON FACE AND NECK... WHAT MARKINGS MAKE EACH PUP DEFINABLE--IT IS A LEGNTHY PROCESS... IF THEY ALL HAVE WHITE FEET, DOES ONE HAVE A BLACK TOE? AND ONLY ONE??? TOOK HER A COUPLE HOURS.. SO NOW WE CAN WEIGH THEM WITH SOME DEGREE OF CERTAINTY... THE 2 VERY LITTLE STARTEING AT 14 OZ AND 1 POUND HAVE EACH GAINED 3 OUNCES IN 2 DAYS----- WHEN YOU FIGURE IT IS A PERCENTAGE OF THIER ENTIRE WEIGHT IT IS SIGNIFICANT... THE BIGGEST IS NOW 2 POUNDS AND TEH SMALLEST 1.14...IT TOOK A WHILE WHEN WE FIRST GOT THAT SCALE TO FIGURE OUT THAT IS NOT A NORMAL DECIMAL NOTATION ---- BECAIS E THERE IS NO 1.16, THAT BECOMES 2.0
SPEAKING OF SCHOOL-- I WONDER IF DAWN'S KIDS WOULD DO E A FAVOR... THEY ALL KNOW EACH OTHER'S NAMES, HOW LONG WOULD IT TAKE TO HAVE THEM -- WITHOUT SPEAKING TO EACH OTHER- GET INTO ALPHABETICAL ORDER.
TOMORROW IS NUTTY PROF... AND I HAD A GREAT IDEA FOR TENNIS BALLS -SO I NOW HAE 3 TENNIS BALLS ON MY DESK AND CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT I WAS TO DO WIT THEM... THEY ARE LEFT OVER FROM SOME DEAL ABOTU CUTTING A SLIT ABOUT 2" LONG IN THEM AND SCREWING THEM TO THE WALL.. THIS GAVE YOU A PLACE TO POKE INA HAND TOWEL ( OR SUCH) THEY DO HOLD STRANGE THEINGS VERY WELL.
BUT THAT I S NOT WHT I PLANNED.
OUR GUESTS HAVE APPEARED FROMT HE GUEST HOUSE WITH SMALL CHILD-- BELLA TYPE-- SO I MUST AWAY TO THE COFFEE DRINKING.
THE SHATTING BOARD IS ½ WAY BY CAKE DAY... MARVELOUSE !!!!
This morning it was rainy and I thought I could let Emmett sleep while I ran out to the Dunkin Donuts drive threw to get some coffee. When he herd the door to the garage open, I herd a loud thump on the floor when he jumped out of bed, followed by him coming down the stairs. He ran into the kitchen with the look, "Where we going". I opened the van door and he flew right in. He's so excited to start each day.
Zep is doing great! He's adjusting well to my family. We went to the beach over thanksgiving (and he even pulled me a little in the Beach wheelchair which are notoriously awkward) and he got to run some on the beach.
My entire family has had a stomach bug for 2 weeks so he and I didn't get out a ton. He did get a little crazy at night on the days when we didn't go out at all but for the most part, he was happy to lay around and sleep and do a few zoomies outside.
He's such a good dog and so laid back. I don't go to church very often but I did go yesterday and the band had drums in it. The only thing I've ever seen him react to is drums but he didn't really do anything. All he did was lay his ears back and look very uncomfortable.
I will send you a video in a minute of him running around outside doing zoomies.
