NOW ABOUT THIS MAKING WATER RUN UPHILL... BETWEEN THE POINTY HOoVES AND TEH DELUGE, OUR ABILITY TO MANUFACTURE BLACK MUD ( AKA TOP SOIL) IS MONUMENTAL.. AND IN A HORRENDOUS DOWNPOUR, OFF THAT ARENA , THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT... HOWEVER IT IS THE CONSTANT TRICKLE OF WATER WITH NO PLACE TO GO, THAT GETS CHURNED INTO 18 INCHES OF MUD..... THE CONCEPT I AM WORKING ON IS TO DIRECT THE RUN OFF TO A SMALL POOL...... AND WHEN THE WATER REACHES A CERTAIN LEVEL IN THAT POOL, I AM PROVIDING A PIPE.. SLIGHTLY PITCHED DOWN SO IT WILL RUN ( HALF A BUBBLE ON THE LEVEL) TO ANOTHER COLLECTING POOL .. NOW BY COVERING THE PIPE WITH ACTUAL BROWN DIRT --- AND DEFLECTING THE DONKEYS AWAY FROM THE COLLECTION SITES WITH BIG ROCKS- THEY SHOULD CROSS TEH WATER TRANSPORT DEVICE/PIPE WITHOUT SINKING THIER POINTY HOOVES INTO THE FLUID.
IF THIS WORKS, I WILL HAVE "MOVED" THE WATER TO BEHIND THE ICU HOUSE WITHOUT ANY STAGNANT PUDDLES AT LEAST TO THAT POINT... WHERE I THINK THERE IS ENOUGH "GRADE" TO KEEP IT GOING TO THE SWAMP/POND/STREAM
IF I HAD BEEN TOTALLY CORRECT, I WOULD HAVE MEASURED TEH "GRADE" WITH MY SIPHON HOSE... BUT I COULDN'T FIND IT- SO I SPENT ALOT OF TIME YESTERDAY POURING WATER IN ONE END OF A PIPE AND RUNNING TO THE OTHER TO SEE IF IT CAME OUT.
THIS ACTIVITY CAUSED THEI DECISION TO BE MADE THAT DOGFEST 2018 T SHIRTS WILL BE A DARK COLOR.
IT WAS RAINING AT THE TIME-- SO I GOT WET- AT LEAST MY BACK GOT WET---EVEN THO IT WAS WARM OUT ,, I FROZE-- EVAPORATION BEING A COOLING PROCESS... I WONDERED WHY PEOPLE IN THE CITY,- OR FLORIDA--- WHEN THIER A/C BREAKS DON'T JUST PUT ON A SOAKING WET SHIRT AND SIT IN FRONT OF A FAN...
THA T CAUSED STEVE AT MAIL CALL TO GET STUCK ON EXPIRIMENTING WITH THE CONCEPT OF WET T SHIRTS -- WHICH MADE LINDA APPEAR AND DECIDE IF WE WERE GONG TO FOOL WITH WET T SHIRTS AT DOG FEST, THE SHIRTS BETTER BE A DARK COLOR..
SEE... IT WAS LOGICAL...
WE DID HAVE A BROWN DANE HERE YESTERDAy for a while.. one of the novartis workers brought her dane- she thought it would be no problem just to turn her loose while they worked--- she had not asked sizzles permission to do that ... so we put the brown dnae in eh icu house for safe keeping.. it was a typical tall dane ...lovely dog-- year old-- she haqd a spike collar on it-- with the spikes turned in the dogs neck... i asked her why she had that on -- she said her trainer told her to--- i could not help saying "find another trainer"
and asked her to turn it inside out while she was here.
i suppose if you are dealing eith a dog who is an absolute idiot it might be useful-- our dogs are taught not to pull... and they don't-- it takeS a while... but if george--- with 45 pound bella ----- or any of them-- wanted to run off, no collar is going to stop them. better that they learn to have good manners.
people aRE SHOCKED-- MEGAN JUST HAD IT HAPPEN WITH 2 DOGS AT A LOCAL COLLEGE WHERE SHE WENT TO SPEAK... SHE DID NOT HAVE THEM ON A LEASH AND THEY JUST WALKED WITH HER.. SOPMEWHERE IN THEIR TRAINING THEY REALIZE SHE IS THEIR TICKET TO GET BACK IN TH ECAR AND GO HOME. MEGAN SAID PEOPLE WERE SHOCKED TO SEE SUCH BIG DOGS BEHAVING.
THIS MAY BE A PROBLEM PEOPLE HAVE WITH DANES- THEY BASICALLY ARE AFRAID OF THEM -- THIS IS WHY THE "TRAINER" OF THAT BROWN DANE PUT ON THAT SPIKE COLLAR-- AND I FEAR I IS WHY SO FEW...?ANY OTHER? ADI MEMBERS USE DANES AS SERVICE DOGS.
I OFTEN FOOL WITH THAT IDEA WITH BENTLEY. I WILL GIVE HIS LEASH TO SOMEONE AND ASK THEM TO HOLD MY DOG- INVARIAbly they grab the leash tighten it-- so i go back and say
" nooooo... hold with just two fingers and talk to him"
"but he'll get loose"
"no he won't just tell him what you expect him to do like he was a 3 year old kid-- if that doesn't work, no lieash will hold him anyway"
then i go away and watch the fun of this person, who is not used to talking to a dog, tries to hold a conversation with bentley.
i have my fun....
