I ASKED TEH 6 INTERNS TO WRITE A PAPER ON WATER BUCKETS-- ALL SIX DID THAT- AND PER THEIR SCHOOL TRAINING ALL CAREFULLY TYPED. THEY ALL HAD VARIATIONS IF METAL/PLASTIC BIRD POOP/SOAPY WASH AND REFILL 3/4 -- INTERESTING-- BUT ORDINARY .....
THE ONLY THING THEY DID NOT WRITE ABOUT WAS " WE STARTED LIFE AS A BIG FLAT SHEET OF STAINLESS STEEL-- AND AFTER A TORTUROUS 30 MINUTES WE BECAME BUCKETS -- WE WERE THE LUCKY ONES - WITH OUR CLEAN SHINEY - NON RUSTING- BOTTOMS... NOT LIKE THOSE OTHER ONES WHO WERE DESTINED TO BE IN CHEAP MOTELS AS ICE BUCKETS. MY GROUP ENDED UP IN THE DOG HOUSE... LITERALLY.. TO BE SCRUBBED AND CLEANED DAILY ETC..."
BUT IT IS EARLY I THE SUMMER. I EXPECT MORE CREATIVITY AS THE SUMMER MOVES ON...
OUR CREATIVITY WILL BE HELPED BY JERI AND STEVE WHO ARRIVED WITH A LOVLEY FORK LIFT ALL PAINTED PURPLE WITH PAW PRINTS AND A PURINA LOGO.. A forklift is one thing i have not driven before-- since it is the back wheels that turn, it feels like you are in a car sliding on ice .. one thing it will help with.. our g tent needs to have the turnbuckles tightened... piece of cake with thaat thing. i might even get hthe extra CARTONS OF CALENDAR STUFF OUT OF THE GARAGE????? AND INTO THE ICE HOUSE????.. A PERFECT ADDITION ALL 8000 POUNDS OF IT... IT DOES PREFER FLAT HARD SURFACES- I DON'T THINK IT WOULD SURVIVE 5 SECONDS ON SOFT GRASS. TODAY WE MAY TRY AND GET IT DOWN THE ALLEYWAY INTO THE ARENA... IT IS ?LP GAs driven. grace will have a field day with the g tent rafters--
i am told animale control has contacted megan about barking so as i sit here starting at 4am..... , i hav on the donkey camera with it's sound--THAT MIC IS VERY SENSATIVE... I CAN OFTEN HEAR MOMMY CHEWING and NOW... i hear birds chirping and ocassionally one single dog so far away that it can not be in our barn-- at 5:05 a bunch howl'd for 20 seconds-- then quit- and we are back to the single dog.. out on boxford rd? - i can equate the volume to the noise of a dripping faucet-- course my hard of hearing might influence that... I HAVE SENT MOLLY DOWN WITH A BOX OF COOKIES TO THROW A HANDFULL UP INTO THE LOFTS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.
****danes are not prone to thaT consistaNT \FRUSTRATED BARKING YOU CAN SEE IN ALOT OF KENNELS.. THEY BARK FOR A REASON- HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I STOOD HERE WITH A NEW COMMER AND SAID " THERE ARE 55 DOGS ON THE PROPERTY.. AND PLEASE NOTE.. NOT ONE IS BARKING" ... BUT THEY CERTAINLY CAN--
PROBLEM IS IF ONE PERSON IN THAT DEVELOPEMENT NEXT DOOR STARTS BEING ANNOYED THEY GET WORSE WITH EVERY BARK. THERE IS A SIGN UP THERE FACING THEIR DEVELOPEMENT "THIS IS A FARM-- WITH SOMETIMES NOISY, SMELLY ANIMALS" UNFORTUNATELY I CONSIDER THEM ABOUT THE SAME... ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY BBQ OUTSIDE !!
NOW WE NEED TO DO MOUTH INSPECTION???
Pixie is all good thank goodness. They did a full lab work up along with her platelets. They where even higher then last time. She’s back to normal with her platelets. All her other labs looked good the dr said. They also did a full exam to make sure I didn’t miss anything.
The spots in her mouth are more then likely from her meds. Not exactly sure the cause.
She is on her her way home now with me and we sure are going to snuggle tight together. It was a scary moment there.
The vet was absolutely amazing they rushed her right in. They knew who she was as soon as we got there. The vet in Florida to them all about her and how special she was. They had been speaking with the vet in Florida to make sure all her records where there and to make sure she had the best care possible, which she got so far today.
She’s going to be a great place very caring and thorough with her exam. They knew everything about her disorder down to the T.
Stacy and Pixie
I WISH I KNEW WHAT SPOTS I WAS LOOKING FOR IN THEIR MOUTHS-- SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHIGN WE SHOULD KNOW MORE ABOUT.
No railing? No problem!
We spent the afternoon in downtown Providence today - I had an interview for an internship at the state house. I'd been there several times before for various reasons, but this was my first time with Asher. It's a beautiful place, but it's somewhat inaccessible - the stairs are only in the back, but if I want to approach from the direction of the center of downtown without having to walk around the entire perimeter of the property, stairs it is. Last time I was here, I exited and wanted to end up at the mall, and it was then I realized that my best option was to go down the stairs and cross the street, but since there are no hand rails, I couldn't do it. I felt angry and defeated that something as simple as a lack of handrails in one spot could force me to add at least another ten minutes onto my walk since I had to navigate around to a more accessible area. But we don't do that anymore! Stairs - up or down - are no longer an issue. We had quite the trek today to get everywhere we needed to go, probably at least a couple miles, but it didn't seem long at all with my best friend next to me! As we get closer to a year together, I think about all the places we've explored together and how much farther I can go with Asher next to me. I think we both enjoyed our long stroll today, and we're hoping that today's beautiful weather is here to stay!
