mind boggling of the day
kitty met cat in st louis---- apparently they had a great visit-- kitty being our kitty of calendar fame.. and cat being OUR CONTAct in purina fame.... couple qmazing things.... cat did not know about the cameras..... and .... ready????? she thought i was 20 years old...shocker that was. of course.... we think service dog project is the best thing that ever happened to purina-- and explore-- it is a shocker to realize we are such a tiny part of a huge picture.. -----we are a very nice part... but tiny... both purina and explore are sooooooo big.
cat has been in whatever her position is for only a A COUPLE YEARS... AND I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE NUMBER OF CUTE PICTURES THEY GET OF INDIVIDUAL DOGS LOVELY PHOTOGRAPHED BY OWNERS....THE FACT THAT SHE HAD NOT BEEN AWARE OF our very best purina picture.....THE PICTURE OF ALL OUR VOLUNTEERS SLIDING DOWN PUPPY HILL ON PURINA DOG FOOD BAGS-- ESPECIALLY WHERE THE AVG AGE OF THE VOLUNTEERS WAS 53 YEARS OLD.... I WAS UPSET... I REALLY THOUGHT THAT WAS A UNIQUE PICTURE...
i bet most of purina does not know how slippery those bags really are...or the fact that you can dress a manequin or make a quilt out of them...
or alot of things.... ah well..
now on the topic of c-secion in large animals....CP's are driving me nuts... let me clarify..... i know it can be done-- and at vet university hospitals
i also know that when it is done successfully , it makes the news--- sometimes with incorrect details...what you all are missing is the reason it makes the news is that the success is so unusual... what tehy never put in the news are all the times it was a terrible disaster...there is another detail which seems to be scientifically correct... that once serious labor starts in a horse-- you have about 20 minutes to get out a live foal. given all the conditions- all we can do is give them the best care and chance of living thru the production of a live foal....-- and ...-- so far tufts vet is not interested in any learning in that field. so we give her a chance....bryan did think there is a posibility of twins -- or large tumor--- she is big ! and he is ready to come help-- i have his cell phone... i don't think we can do any better.
***as bryan sat here------ we figured out we have known each other 30 years....and there are stories... some mentionable... of course.... like the night he was driving down rt 95 and realized something was happening and pulled over to find he was loosing his ability to use his hand -- he called me saying he was in need of a ride to the hospital and he did not wnat to go with the police and lieave his truck with all the meds etc on the highway..-- i picked up a neighbor and flew up the highway- took him to the hospital and teh neighbor took his truck at the farm...
one of the reasons i always try and have a full tank of gAs in a car that will start---
it is like that with pregnancies.. all you can do is get as ready as you can to do whatever you can...
next problem-- there is a nice looking female pup-- at a kennel where they are about to breed a dog for a litter in 2 months... now...plan woulod be to reserve a MALE pup "with color" not necessarily show color... but not black.... she just sent me the name of the father to be....Je'taime de la Benjamine
so for the next 2 hours i will pplay with trying to locate as many of his relatives as i can..aND SEE HOW THYE ARE "RATED" . he is black... but the dog she is breeding is harl... so she should get somE color--
