JAN 24 2017
LOTS OF WAYS TO START TODAY
VENTING TIME --

MOSTLY......
THE MOST DANGEROUS THING AROUND HERE IS ME IF I DON'T GET ENOUGH SLEEP...
 THEREFORE WE HAVE TO COME TO SOME AGREEMENT THAT.. IF THE BARN -- OR HOUSE -- IS ON FIRE BY ALL MEANS CALL- SHORT OF THAT... I THINK ANY QUESTIONABLE PROBLEM SHOULD BE DISCUSSED BETWEEN 5 OF YOU "CP's " IN THE COMMENT COLUMN AND IF YOU ALL AGREE, THEN ONE CALL.

IT DID LOOK LIKE ONE DONKEY --- THE KICKOR---   KICKED ANOTHER IN THE HEAD- AND THE KICKEE THEN WENT FLAT.  SO SOMEONE CALLED LONG AFTER I WAS ASLEEP... I DID NOT RUN OUT IN MY JAMMIES... IN THE RAIN...AND SNOW...
I DID WATCH THE VIDEO.. IT LOOKED TO ME LIKE  TEH KICKEE WAS LYING DOWN IN TEH VICINITY OF THE KICKOR'S TAIL AN DDECIDED TO SNIFF.. AT WHICH TIME THE KICKOR  GAVE A LACKADAISICAL   "GET LOST" SWAT.. THE KICKEE SAW IT COMING AND  WITH THE PRECISION OF A BRAIN SURGEN  MOVED  HER HEAD JUST FAR ENOUGH AWAY TO AVOID TEH  HOOVED COMMENT.  HAVING  BARELY EXPENDED THE ENERGY TO AVOID THE HOOF, SHE FIGURED SHE MAY AS WELL LIE DOWN IN THAT POSITION-- GETTING UP A FEW MINUTES LATER.

THERE WAS ONE POINT IN MY LIFE WHERE I WAS CONSIDERED  A NATIONAL EXPERT ON DONKEYS  MORE THAN DOGS.   AND I HAD 20 OR 30 IN ONE STALL  THAT WAS THE AREA BETWEEN KENNEL 1 AND 8 ON THAT SIDE OF THE BARN..
ALL THOSE DONKEYS WOULD PACK IN THERE ON OCASSION. DONKEYS ARE EXTREMELY CAREFUL- THEY DON'T WASTE ANY ENERGY DOING FOOLISH THINGS LIKE HORSES..  I COULD THROW ONE BALE OF HAY ON TOP OF THE BACK OF THOSE.. AND THERE WOULD BE NO FIGHTING... AND THEY WOULD EAT IT ALL-- AND WERE VERY HEALTHY.    OUR CURRENT BUNCH ARE SPOILED ROTTEN.
ON WITH TEH KICK LECTURE....
IF A DONKEY REALLY WANTED TO KICK- THERE WOULD BE A WHOLE BODY EFFORT, AND THE KICK WOULD LAND EXACTLY WHERE THAT KICKOR WANTED IT TO LAND.  THEY DON'T MISS...  BUT BECAUSE IT TAKES ALOT OF ENERGY-- THEY JUST DON'T BOTHER WHEN A SINGLE HOOF THREAT WILL DO. ACTUALLY THEY WILL USUALLY BROADCAST THE PUNCH WITH TEH FLICK OF AN EAR.. GOT TO WATCH THE BODY LANGUAGE- THEY TALK TO EACH OTHER THE SAME WAY..

AS WITH ANY LIVE BEING.. IT IS POSSIBLE FOR A DONKEY-- OR PERSON TO HAVE A "NERVOUS BREAKDOWN"  AND BEHAVE TOTALLY IRRATICALLY.. I DID SEE THAT ONCE WHEN I WAS ABOUT 12 YEARS OLD;  A WONDERFUL OLDER HORSE WHICH WE USED IN PARADES-- WAS IN HIS STALL -SUDDENLY BECAME A WILD CREATURE  EVEN THO IT WAS A WONDRFULLY BUILT BARN WE WORRIED ABOUT HIM BREAKING LOOSE TIL THE VET COULD COME   WITH TRANQUILIZER AND EUTHANIZE HIM... THAT  IS ONLY ONE IN THOUSANDS OF ANIMALS-- I WAS VERY GLAD IT DID NOT HAPPEN IN A PARADE..

SO BACK TO DONKEYS ARE  ABOUT THE MOST PREDICTABLE OF ALL ANIMALS. SO WE ARE INTO PROBABLILITES--  
NOT WORTH RUNNING AROUND IN THE SLEET IN MY JAMMIES ...
************
ANOTHER THING THAT WILL BE COMING UP IS.. THESE ATHLETES ARE GETTING FAR TOO TOOTHY.. AND HAVE TO LEARN NOT TO TOUCH A PERSON WITH A TOOTH... SO YOU WILL SEE ME OFFERING MY HANDS TO PUPS... AND PATTING THEM,, BUT IF THEY TOUCH ME WITH A TOOTH, I WILL GIVE THEM THE ONE FINGER SNAP ON THE NOSE..

SO PLEASE GET REATDY FOR THAT AND DON'T START  RUMORS AROUND ABOUT ME BEATING THESE DOGS...AND IF ANYONE KNOWS A BETTER WAY... TEHN GET YOUSELF A LITTER OF LIVELY PUPS AND HAVE AT IT.. I DO NOT LIKE BEING BITTEN BY A BUNCH OF BRATS.  ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE GOING TO WEIGH 150 POUNDS...

 IT IS ATAP ON THE NOSE-- AND THEY THINK ABOUT IT. AND TRY SEVERAL TIMES.. THEN FINALLY LICK MY HAND-- IT IS A PROCESS THEY BEST LEARN BEFORE THEIR TEETH ARE 1"LONG.
SO GET READY.

OH DEAR!  PERHAPS A GENTLE GENERALIZED MESSAGE TO ALL AT MAIL CALL TONIGHT? OR MAYBE YOU COULD THINK OF A POST FOR EXPLORE TO PIN AT THE TOP OF THE SDP PAGES? THAT WOULD GIVE YOU THE DAY TO THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO SAY. PEOPLE DO MEAN WELL, BUT WATCHING THE EXPLORE BOARD IT SEEMS THINGS ARE GETTING OUT OF HAND AGAIN...  THE CAMERAS ARE SUCH A ‘DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD” FOR SDP... 

I SAW SOMEONE RANTING A COUPLE NIGHTS AGO ABOUT PUPS BEING HIT (IT WAS THE STANDARD NOSE TAP FOR NIPPING). THE AUTHORS ARE AT THAT BOLD PHASE... FOLKS DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT IT WILL NOT BE FUNNY IN JUST A FEW WEEKS AS THEY GET OLDER IF THEY ARE ALLOWED TO GET AWAY WITH BEING BRATS! 

I REMEMBER LAST SUMMER ON ONE OF THE EAGLE CAMS THEY ACTUALLY DECIDED TO TURN IT OFF FOR A FEW DAYS UNTIL FOLKS SETTLED DOWN. I HOPE IT WON’T COME TO THAT FOR YOU, BUT FOLKS NEED TO RESPECT THE PRIVILEGE OF ‘PEERING INTO YOUR HOME AND FARM’.  

YOU HAVE MY UTMOST RESPECT.... BEING INVOLVED IN RESCUE MEANS I USUALLY HAVE ABOUT 7 DOGS IN MY HOME AND I AT LEAST GET A GLIMPSE OF HOW HECTIC THINGS MUST BE FOR YOU.  HOPING THAT I MIGHT EVEN BE ABLE TO GET DOWN TO VOLUNTEER AT YOUR PLACE THIS SUMMER... MY 60TH BIRTHDAY PRESENT TO ME!

Bella and George were back to school today. They had a great day as usually. Bella brought a Service Dog Project calendar to her teacher and she loved it! She loves George in her class so much. She keeps doing his laundry for me!
