MARCH 28 2017
FRIDAY-- HELP- BIG TIME-  Donkey walk for CBS news on Friday.  Can we get people to show up on a Friday?   FROM JANINE ----  AS WITH ALL TV COVERAGE... IT IS A POSSIBLE COVERAGE-- THAT IS ALL BECAUSE CBS WILL NOT SHOW IF A TRUCK CARRYING FISH OVERTURNS ON RT 95- THEY WILL BE A NO SHOW....  BUT IT WOULD  BE AN INTERESTING "PHOTO OP-" 

WE GET ALOT OF REQUESTS FOR INTERNSHIPS WHO WANT TO SHADOW US...  I HAVE A BIG SHOCKER, SHADOWING ME WOUODL BE ALOT OF  SITTING QUIETLY BEHIND ME WHILE I TYPE... WHOWOODA
THUNK---- THE FUN CONCEPT OF TRAINING DOGS INVOLVED MORE TYPING THAN TALKING TO DOGS/....
-- OR FOLDING LAUNDRY-- OR  POO PICKING...

WE HAVE A RULE HERE  --  EVERYBODY CARRIES A POO PICKING "KIT" OF SOME CARDBOARD AND A BAG IN THIER BACK POCKET- AND TEH FIRST ONE TO SEE IT... PICKS IT..  THE ONLY VARIABLE IS ME--- IF BENNIE LEAVES A PILE, I SIT AND LOOK AT IT UNTIL SOMEONE COMES ALONG AND PICKS IT FOR ME...
AH, THE BENEFITS OF  BEING THE CEO !!

ACTUALLY--- SINCE YOU ASKED...--WHEN YOU SPEND ALOT OF TIME WITH A SERVICE DOG, YOU KNOW ALOT ABOUT HIS/HER   INTESTINAL TRACT.  THAT KNOWLEDGE HAS BEEN FORCED ON YOU  BY THAT WISE OLD PERSON    "EXPERIENCE"
I REMEMBER-- SOMEOF YOU KNOW THIS STORY  - I WAS BRINGING A PUPPY BACK FROM GERMANY AND AT THE AIRPORT THEY LET ME KEEP THE CAGE AND PUP WITH ME UNTIL BOARDING..  SO I LET HIM OUT OF HIS CAGE- ON A  LEASH, IN THE  CAFE AREA.. NOT REALIZING HE HAD BEEN HOLDING IT IN AS LONG AS HE POSSIBLY COULD- AND TEH MINUTE HE GOT OUT, IT SPRAYED... ALL OVER SEVERAL CHAIR LEGS AND TH STOOLS TO THE COUNTER.--  I   WAS NOT PREPARED-- I SPOKE NO GERMAN- NO ONE HELPED... BUT THEY SURE LAUGHED AT THE CRAZY AMERICAN  CRAWLING AROUND IN IT...TRYING TO MOP IT UP WITH THOSE 4" TINY "BAR NAPKINS" ... I LEARNED.

SO BEFORE I TAKE BENTLEY OUT TO COSTCO, I LET HIM PICK A SPOT TO EMPTY THE CONTENTS OF WHAT HE HAS BEEN COLLECTIN G ALL NIGHT..--HE IS PARTICULAR- AND DOES NOT LIKE THE WIDE OPEN SPACES OF TEH DECK-- SO EVEN AT 11:AM I CAN NOT BE SURE HE HAS "GONE" . YESTERDAY I SGTARTED OUT THE GATE- WITH HIM IN THE BACK OF TEH CAR... AND HE STARTED "TALKING" -- CLEARLY SAYING 'THERE IS GONNA BE TROUBLE"    SO I LET HIM OUT ALONG TEH DRIVEWAY- SURE ENOUGH...  HOWEVER , PULLING RANK,, I KICKED ALOT OF SNOW OVER IT AND HOPED IT WOUOLD BE GONE BY SPRING.
I WAS BAD. BUT IT WAS IN A SPOT NO ONE WOULD EVER WALK IN IT.   WITH THE CURRENT RULE IN PLACE A PILE NEVER SHOULD HAPPEN  WITHOUT SOMEONE THERE TO PICK IT UP.

WHICH MADE ME REALIZE THAT ONE OF HTE UNSUNG SUCCESSESS OF SDP IS TO HAVE THE BEST POSSIBLE EQUIPMENT FOR WHATEVER JOB IS AT HAND...OVER THE YEARS AS I WAS TRAINING THE DOG S MYSELF- I WAS DOING 99% OF ALL THE CHORES SO IT WAS A CONSTANT "THERE MUST BE AN EASIER WAY"-- AND IT IS ALL THOSE "EASIER WAYS"  FROM FOOD STORAGE, TO TRACTOR MANAGEMENT , TO POO PICKING THAT MAKES SDP FUNCTION... THERE ARE SOOOOO MANY ..... LIKE DON'T LEAVE A FEW BAGS OF FOOD ON THE PORCH  "FOR TOMORROW"  BECAUSE  THAT IS AN INVATATON  TO OUR RODENT POPULATION,  "HERE LIVES SOMEONE WHO IS  NICE TO KNOW"....  I DON'T THINK THE RATS HAVE GOT IN THAT BIG  STORAGE CONTAINER ... YET.. 

I SAY  "YET"  ONLY BECAUSE  IT , TOO  , IS AN IQ TEST THAT I  HAVE SO OFTEN LOST.     IT REPLACED TEH AMBULANCE - WHICH WAS A VIRTUAL "COSTCO FOR RATS, MICE, SQUIRRELS AND CHIPMUNKS"
***
SOMEONE STAYING IN THE GUEST HOUSE TOLD ME   THEY LEFT THIER BOOTS IN THE LIVING ROOM OVERNIGHT ONLY TO FIND ACORNS IN ONE OF THEM IN TH E MORNING. 

 UBIQUITOUS  IS ,I BELIEVE, THE WORD.
