THANK HEAVENS I HAVE NO DESIRE TO CLIMB MT EVEREST-- NEWS THIs MORNING,, A GUY WHO LOST BOTH LIMBS TRYING TO GET THERE YEARS AGO JUST MADE IT -- I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAt...-- it is cold up there...he and everyone with him is in danger. why not try swimming from france to england where the conditions for helpers are far more favorable??
on to paula and penny flying tomorrow from frankfurt to boston-- landing at about 3:00-- takes about an hour to get the cargo to the terminal so we can have the attached paperwork-- which we then have to get stamped by "customs" sonce tomorrow is a holiday, normal customs in boston will be closed--- so we will have to go to the airport customs in terminall E-- instead... is anyone thnking about that? they give you a very detailed paper telling you how to get thru downtown boston to get to Customs" at drydock.. with details of the cost of the fuel (47 cents) to make the round trip. makes me wonder........except on a holiday when you just go to a differnt terminal.... many things make me wonder..
however.... the flight will be lufthansa 422 landign in boston at 15:00-- sooooooo
it is possbl;e to track the flight with flightaware.com - last time there were many hundreds of people watching that little dot cross the ocean cheering as it passed iceland... then greenland..
bud is our airport driver-- and judy and i will deal.. plan is to get them out of the crate in the "outeroffice" space for a drink and snack. while we put everyting else that was in the crate in a garbage bag...-- wipe them off with waterless shampoo.. wipe out the crate with our terriffic supply of handiwipes--insert new fluffies-- insert puppies and carry to car and turn loose in the back of my toyota to move and relax, while bud drives us home.pullin up to the deagle house to carry them in for a camera reception - i can not believe we will get there by mail call... but i don't think we could be any earlier.-----oh did i mention taking a supply of rubber gloves?
mayhem was spotless-- these are a little younger... and 2 of them in the same crate-- if it was not a direct flight we might need tyvek suits.
there is some organizing to do--- people have to realize you feed dogs in reverse order of age... which is also reverse of training... you can not feed chaos with little puppies dancing around her feet and food--- but rather... you get the pups anchored .. like in lindas room... tehn may and sizzle... then bentley and chaos who understand "wait"
"meatcutter steve" pointed out last night we survived with about 40 danes in the house and no confusion... so 8 should be no problem-- i do want to claim the back condo area for "my" end of things.
there are facts of life
a sleeping animal will wake with a full bLadder aND POSSIBLY COLON- AND IF THE COLON PART DOES NOT HAPPEN THEN, IT WILL BE AWAKENED BY THE FEEDING OF BREAKFAST/ OR DINNER- SO GETTING DOGS OUT DURING THOSE TIMES MIGHT HELP THE LAUNDRY BILL.
PEOPLE WITH SERVICE DOGS GET THE WHOLE ELIMINATION PROCESS DOWN PAT--- HAVEING BENTLEY WHO IS STILL INTACT , IT TOOK ME A WHILE- TO REALISE ALL THAT POST PEEING WAS TOTALLY NOT NECESSARY. AS A MATTER OF FACT, A male dog seems to have an extra resevoir of urine so he may always have a little squirt necessary should he come upon a hydrant or potted plant that has not been marked.-- because --- in the noticing department---- if it is raining out the supply may be saved for a sunny day.. when he will line up and drain it often taking 23 minutes of a steady stream.
i wonder how urine is processed on this property daily 60 danes 14 donkeys & 29 people?
service dog having puppies at an airport .... well... to be generous.... that dog could be teh service dog for the director of an adi "program" . bentley is not neutered... is almost the same thing... you can not spay/ neuter your best dogs,- you must keep them for producing future service dogs. there is some latitude given directors and master trainers for just that reason.
now if that dog happens to be someone's working service dog..... it could happen... there is a famous golden stud dog with an adi member... she has it easier... the "feathers "( hair) hide his masculinity where as bentley it is more obvious...
