JAN 22 2017
now for the sneezing report....  as of 2am-- in the past 24  hours no sneeze or drip.
(geogre-- got any of that stuff for me??)
NO VOMIT REPORT..
NO  SPECIFIC SPLATTERINGS-- WE DID-- EXPIRIMENTALLY -- PUT A BUNCH ON  PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICHES WITH A PINCH OF TYLAN IN EACH SANDWICH.
***
 TEH  LAINIE  MASTITIS  PROBLEM HAS SELF REPAIRED BY "BLOWING A HOLE " WHERE THERE WAS NOT ONE... AND LETTING  ALL THE GOOP DRAIN. ( ONTO THROW AWAY WASHCLOTHS ETC.)... SHE FEELS SOOOOOO MUCH BETTER ---- TEMP NORMAL AT 3AM,  GRACE IS ON IT WITH DILUTED BETADINE...
-----*****
NOW FOR TEH  BIT OF REMINDING ME TO GIVE SHOTS... I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY SENT ME DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE A SPREADSHEET OF DETAILS-- I ALREADY KNOW HOW TO FUNCTION WITH SPREAD SHEETS FOR 100 YEARS..  PROBLEM IS, ONCE ALL NEAT AND TIDY, WE DON'T LOOK AT THEM...

 SO FINALLY TINA GOT IT STRAIGHT.. AND I GOT AN EMAIL SAYING 
******* PUPS 6 WEEK SHOTS DUE 1/26*******
 PERFECT.. I ORDERED SHOTS TO BE MAILED OVERNIGHTED ON MONDAY-- SHOULD BE HERE TUESDAY ( OVERNIGHT IS CRITICAL... THEY ARE REFRIGERATED...)
SO NEXT PROBLEM ----TINA ... IS TO SEND ME AN EMAIL  ON 1/26  SAYING SHOOT TODAY !
***
 ONE THING I NEED TO GO OVER IS THAT  THESE RABIES SHOTS---  MUST BE DONE BY A LIC VET... YOU GIVE ONE  AFTER 12 WEEKS-- THEN -- IF YOU GIVE THE SECOND ONE BETWEEN 9 AND 12 MONTHS FROM THE FIRST, THAT SECOND SHOT  IS GOOD FOR 3 YEARS... OTHERWISE YEARLY.
I MISSED IT BY A DAY ONCE... AND COULD NOT GET GEORGE TO FUDGE IT. -- I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO GET HIM TO LIE... HEAVEN KNOWS I HAVE TRIED..
*/*/****
CLEANING MY COMPUTER, I RAN INTO THIS HOW TO TRAIN  YUPPY... -- WHICH DOES NOT LOOK LIKE I SENT IT...

 THE YUPPY PUPPY...  BEFORE YOU ALL BUY ONE,  THIS OLDER MODEL IS ONE OF THE FINEST MACHINES  I HAVE EVER OWNED...IT HAS  BEEN  BEAT UP AN D BATTERED UPON UNKINDLY  FOR  ?30 YEARS.. AND WORKS PERFECTLY.  THE NEW ( SMALLER ONES) ARE NOWHERE NEAR AS GOOD.
I AM ASHAMED TO SAY -- IN THE GOOD OLE DAYS EVERY PUP  BORN HERE COULD USE THAT THING...
MY FAULT... I NEED TO TEACH THESE PUPPY SITTERS HOW TO  TEACH "YUPPY"--
**
IT IS NOT EASY-- FIRST YOU TAKE A HANDFUL OF TYLENOL SO YOU BACK DOESN'T GIVE OUT... THEN YOU BEND OVER -- POISED--- SO  IF THE PUP'S NOSE-- OR FOOT   GOES ANYWHERE NEAR THE BONE HANDLE, YOU TTRIGGER IT...  IT HAS TO BE SPLIT SECOND-- BECAUSE EVERY TIME YOU DO NOT DO IT PERFECTLY, UP ARE TEACHING  THEM TO DO SOMETHING WRONG...  IT IS THE ULTIMATE IN CLICKER TRAINING..  AND IF A DOG IS IN THE TRAINING PHASE AND YOU ARE NOT THERE TO SUPERVISE... IT HAS TO BE COVERED WITH A LAUNDRY TUB-- SO THEY DON'T GET ANY BAD IDEAS...
** 

AFTER ALL MY QUESTIONABLE COMMENTS ON TRAINING ... I GOT A SNAIL MAIL WITH THIS... WHICH WAS ALMOST AS EXCITING AS GEORGE WINNING #1 SERVICE DOG...

******

NOW ABOUT “DOG WISDOM”; WOW!  ASK THEM, MOLD THEM, THINK ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE FEELING.  CHANGE THE MINDSET BY GIVING ANOTHER TASK, EXPOSE THEM TO WHAT YOU NEED THEM TO DO, ETC.  I HAVE LEARNED SO MUCH FROM TRAINER TALK AND WATCHING HOW THE DOGS ARE HANDLED BY THE LOVING WORKERS OF CRAZY ACRES.  THESE TWO COMPONENTS HAVE BEEN ESSENTIAL TO THE MOLDING OF MY DANE FOR SERVICE.  I NOW UNDERSTAND THAT THE “OBEDIENCE” THINKING OF SIT-STAY-DOWN-HEEL, BY YANKING THE COLLAR IS NOT PRODUCTIVE IN FORGING A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PARTNER.

WITH THE PASSING OF 2016, I HAVE USHERED OUT THIS STYLE OF TRAINING.  THE DOG WHICH FOR 14 MONTHS WAS STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND WHAT I WAS ASKING IS NOW SO KEEN TO MY NEEDS THAT EVEN OFF-LEASH, WHILE ENJOYING THE FREEDOM OF THE YARD, HAS COME TO MY AIDE.

THANK YOU TO THE TRAINERS AND VOLUNTEERS.  
 THANK YOU FOR THE GREAT EXAMPLES!
 FOREVER GRATEFUL,

NANCY

YES !  GOES WITH THE SPOON FEEDING DIRECTIONS....
**************
THEN -- AN EMAIL FROM SOMEONE WHO KNEW OF A KID  AT CHILDRENS HOSPITAL WHO COULD USE A CHEEREING UP WITHA GREAT DANE VISIT...
SHOULD BE A PIECE OF CAKE...  I CONTACTEDD BOTH  BELLA AND HUNTER... WHO GO THERE REGULARLY...  TURNS OUT HUNTER WILL BE THERE IN ABOUT 10 DAYS AND WOULD BE GLAD TO.... AND BELLA AND GEORGE WILL GO NEXT TIME THEY ARE THERE TOO.

THEN I SUGGESTED SHE TRY AND GT THE KIDDO WATCHING OUR CAMERAS
*********
I CONSIDER THE EXPLORE.ORG CAMERAS  THE GREATEST UNDISCOVERED  ASSETT OF COMPUTER OWNERSHIP.
BETWEEN THE BROWN BEARS, ELEPHANTS, BATS AND SERVICE DOG PROJECT... WHAT MORE ENTERTAINMENT  WOULD YOU NEED?   COMMERCIAL FREE...

  1. I suggest you get someone to look at the spreadsheets for you. Maybe the parvo incident wouldn't have happened if someone remembered to give them their shots. Remember Mae, Lumin and Neal? Very irresponsible.

  2. Look at the fricking spreadsheets or get someone to do it for you. I'm done watching and supporting you. I'm appalled that dogs have died from parvo due to your neglect.
