Lemonade Stand donation from //Eve & Ashlynn
gotta hand it to all 3 of our very young recipients... eve bella and hunter-- whether it is because we donated a dog for them or it is their "get up and go" attitude that caused us to note that they were 3 kids who had the uummphh to keep themselves moving forward in a community where regardless of their handicaps, they could help someone else... eve with her lemonaaade-- bella with her shirts -- and hunters tote bags -- involving children's hospital-- i.e. benefiting other children instead of concentrating on just what the dog does for them.... or on the things they can not do.. i expect these kids to grow up, get an education and cure cancer-- or whatever....
THERE IS A LIFETIME OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "IN SPITE OF THE HANDICAP" AND "BECAUSE OF THE HANDICAP" AND I CAN GET PRETTY ADAMANT ON THE TOPIC..
THERE IS AN --"I CAN" -- VERSUS-- "I CAN'T"-- IT IS THAt "apostrophe T" that makes a world of difference.
one of the most spectacular stories is the person we gVE A DOG TO--- AND TOLD THEM TO COME BACK IN A MONTH SO WE COUDL WORK ON "SPECIAL SITUATIONS" -- THEY CAME BACK AND WE STArted to explain how to manage a dane on an airplane-- and she said she had already flown 18 times that month and delta loves her.
maybe it is that i see a service dog more something to remove a problem as opposed to being a help. there is teh plus and minus....
i have to suggest everyone read rachael's paper on organizing bella and george-- he does need to have a water jug in the car-- needs to be fed.. and scooped... and a runabout-- and blanketed in winter. it is not a dog you "use" to walk... and stick in a crate at night. we had someone try that waaaaaaay back at the beginning-- the person could not understand why the dog kept walking circles and into walls-- turns out she used teh dog during the day, and when she got home put the dog in a crate and played with her tiny lap dog. we drove to her home- south of the hudson river.... and picked up the dog who was happy to leave and become a pet for someone in mass.
next problem-- we are going to have puppies... as i am sure you all are remembering....aug 10 to 15th??? which means by september they can -- for a few weeks be part of our visiting the senior living pROJECT.. i once had ( AND MY POOR ORGAINZATIONAL SKILLS RUINED) A BRITISH PRAM-- ACTUALLY 2 OF THEM WHICH I USED TO CARRY PUPPIES AROUND VISITING.. IT WAS LITERALLY A HOOT !! SO I WENT OUT TO EBAY... AND FOUND THE ANTIQUE ONES WERE WELL OVER $1000 BUT I FOUND ONE NEARLY NICE NOT ANTIQUE..FOR $90. AND I BOUGHT IT...SOUNDS GOOD SO FAR..
PROBLEM IS-- IT IS " LOCAL PICK UP ONLY"-- AND I THOUGHT OF ALL THE CP'S AROUND AND JANINE SHIPPING DONKEYS THRU PENNA-- SOMEHOW WE OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO GET THAT PRAM FROM-- I THINK IT IS SUDBRUY((?) PENNA BEFORE SEPTEMBER WHEN I COULD USE IT. I HAVE PERFECT FAITH... I HAVE ALSO ASKED FOR AN EXACT ADDRESS... BECAUSZE THE EBAY ONLY FLASHED THAT PICK UP TOWN ONCE--- AND I HAD TO EMAIL FOR THE EXACT TOWN....
PENNA IS PENNA NOT ALASKA... SOMEHOW WE NEED TO GET THAT PRAM TO IPSWICH BY SEPT.
TO WALK IN A PLACE WITH A PUP OR TWO IN THAT PRAM WOULD GIVE THESE PEOPLE 3 MONTHS WORHT OF CONVERSATION-- NOT JUST THE RESIDENTS.... BUT THE STAFF !!
