MARCH 11,2017
IT IS VERY HARD TO WRITE GRANT TYPE STUFF AND THEN DO TEH DAILY DOGGIE..SO THIS IS WHAT ANNE AND I ARE TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER.. 
IDENTIFY A PROBLEM AND SOLVE IT.
**DOGS HAVE A VERY WELL DOCUMENTED  EFFECT ON PEOPLE..
**THE SENIOR RESIDENCES ARE CRYING FOR ENTERTAINMENT..  **HARDLY A DAY GOES BY I DON'T GET AT LEAST ONE THERAPY DOG REQUEST- THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH THERAPY  AROUND...
**THESE WOULD NOT BE THERAPY " PAT THE PUPPY " VISITS,  BUT SERVICE DOG IN TRAINING WALK THRU'S...
**WE HAVE THE BASIC OPERATION- OF DOGS/PUPS IN AND OUT THE DRIVEWAY ABOUT EVERY 45 MINUTES..
**THEY STEVE,MEGAN,OLIVIA GO TO A ROUND OF COSTCO, THE BEVERLY HOSPITAL ANNEX, THE HOTEL, HOME DEPOT AND WALMART.
***MEGAN  COULD...WITHOUT "BREAKING STRIDE"  WANDER INTO ANY LOCAL SENIOR CENTER AND SAY
 "MEET  HEIDEN-- HE IS A 11 WEEK OLD DANE PUP LEARNINGN O BE A SERVIDCE DOG-- AND NEEDS TO GET OUT TO MEET DIFFERENT PEOPLE--AND YOU ARE  TODAY'S DIFFERENT PEOPLE .-- HE SHOULD JUST LIE HERE FOR  5 MINUTES WITHOUT MOVING MUCH AT ALL...  ANYBODY GOT ANY QUESTIONS WHILE I STAND HERE?  " 
 MEGAN HAS THE "GIFT OF GAB"  AND  COULD DO THAT IN HER SLEEP-- SO COUDL ANNE AND I   BUT I WOULD ADD " IF YOU GAVE US  LUNCH OR A CUPPA COFFEE WE MIGHT STAY LONGER"   
SOMETHING... ANYTHING ---TO BREAK UP TH E ROUTINE
AND IT WOULD BE GREAT PR FOR WHOEVER SPONSORS US... LIKE THE LOCAL BANK?  OR  EBCAO?  

WOULDN'T I LOVE TO GET A DONKEY TRAINED ENOUGH TO GO WITH US...WOULD WORK BEHIND THE SEAT IN THE PICK UP...  OR LIFT INOT MY CAR-- DONKEYS ARE GREAT. & SAME SIZE AS BENTLEY

THE OTHER PART OF THIS GRANT APPLICATION IS TO  WORK ON THIS  DONKEY WALK IN THE WOODS DEAL JANINE STARTED ON SUNDAY MORNING... THERE IS A NICE PATH- ABOUT A 45 MINUTE WALK THRU WILLOWDALE-- NEEDS SOME UPGRADINIG -  BUT IT DOES WORK NOW...  THE PART OF THIS GRANT WE ARE DEALING WITH IS BENEFITTING LOCALS-- AND WE DO... PEOPLE COME HERE SO YOU CAMERA PEOPLE CAN WATCH THEM -- A  WIN  WIN--
WHO  OUT THERE IN CAMERA WORLD DOESN'T LOVE WATCHING POCKETS GIVE SOMEONE A HARD TIME ON SUNDAY MORNING???

 SO SOMEHOW WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO  HAVE THIS IDEA BE MORE SUPPORTIVE... WITHOUT GETTING COMMERCIAL --OUR BASIC ASSET--- THE FARM AND WILLOWDALE STATE FOREST-- PLUS NICE DOGS AND NICE PEOPLE- SOME VERY TALKATIVE...  SOME LESS  SO.
***
 I REMEMBER.....HERE WE GO...
THAT WAGON  WE USE AS A PUPPY BUS-- WAS  BUILT TO TAKE A  HALF GROWN PIG INTO A SCHOOL-  IT WORKED WEELL THEN AND NOW.
 I THINK THE MOST ANIMALS I HAD IN  HOTEL AT ANY ONE TIME WAS THE WESTON CHRISTMAS PARTY --WE HAD THE 8 HITCH OF DONKEYS WITH ANTLERS, A MINI COW, BULL AND CALF...SOME GOATS, COUPLE TURKEYS, A RIDING HORSE ( TACKY THE APPY) AND 100 DAY OLD CHICKS--- IS ALL I REMEMBER---
THE WHOLE EPISODE IW AT LEAST A WEEK OF  DAILY DOGGIES ITSELF- IT ENDED WITH DAUGHTER GWEN DRAGGING A FULLY  DECORATED 10' CHRISTMAS TREE ACROSS TEH FLOOR  AS SHE RAN FOR THE  FREIGHT ELEVATOR WHICH JANINE WAS HOLDING WITH THE HORSE. WE HAD 25 MINUTES TO STRIP THE BALLROOM SO THE HOTEL COULD VACUUM THE RUGS AND  NEXT PARTY COULD DECORATE. ANN GETCHEL'S KIDS CONFISCATED 2 BUSHES OF ORANGES THEY WERE GOING TO THROW IN THE DUMPSTER-- IT WAS A WILD SCENE-- AND I CASHED THE CHECK FOR $4500.
 WE LIKE A CHALLENGE.  IT IS SUCH FUN WHEN IT IS  SUCCESSFULLY OVERWITH.

SO WE ARE VERY CAPABE PF A VERY MINOR VERSION  OF ALL THAT...-- INCLUDING THE PUPPY BUS- IN A NEWLY DECORATED VERSION.. IT IS PRETTY GRUBBY NOW.

SO FOR THIS PROJECT I NEED TO MAKE A LIST OF WHAT WE NEED  WHY, AND HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST......
ALONG WITH DRINKING MORE COFFEE, THAT IS WHAT I NOW WILL DO...
