i hate to get gas... (PETROL FOR THE CAR).... especially when i have a dog in the car with me... but it was that or push yesterday, - as i pulled up to the gas pump someone came running to the car and asked if i wrote a daily doggie-- she has been reading it for quite a while and was full of jolly stories that made her laugh..
--- between her and the guy at the deli who was very cheerful, i realized how nice it is to have people be happy in thier workplace... IT CHEERED ME UP
MY MOST EXCITING NEWS IS I HEARD FROM T HE GUY WHO IS TRYING TO START UP A WEST COAST SDP AND HAS PUT OUT 2 VERY NICE DANES SO FAR... HE IS 20 YEARS BEHIND US- BUT I AM HOPING HE CAN GET ORGANIZED BY SPRING TO TAKE A FEW OF OUR PUPS AS BREEDING STOCK TO GET HIM GOING. ----- BESIDES-- I AM SICK AND TIRED OF LISTENING TO "YOU CAN'T YOU CAN'T YOU CAN'T"
FROM PEOPLE WHO SHOULD BE SAYING "FIGURE OUT HOW TO BE RESPONSIBLE... BE RESPONSIBLE BE RESPONSIBLE" .
. NOT ONLY ARE WE BLESSED WITH LOVELY , NUMEROUS PUPS.... BUT .. WE ALSO HAVE A FEW AIRLINE TYPES-- STARTING WITH JUDY WHO ROUND TRIPPED TO DENMARK FOR WATSON? IN 24 HOURS.. WE HAVE ANOTHER AIRLINE TYPE -- TRACY WHO WILL BE DOING " THE DONKEY BRAY" ON CAMERA... MID AFTERNOOON - YET TO FIGURE OUT HER SCHEDULE..
NOW TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THE WOMAN WHO IS DOING THE SAME THING IN ARIZONA..
BECAUSE IF THAT ACCIDNETAL MAC X LILLY TRYST WORKED, WE COUDL HAVE ANOTHER 11 PUPS... AND THO WE HAVE DEALT WITH MANY MANY MORE, FOR SOME REASON PEOPLE SEEMED PANIC'D- SO UNDER VERY CONTROLELED CONDITIONS,,,, I FEEL GOLDIE IS TELLING ME TO SHARE THE WEALTH---
SHE IS ALSO TELLING ME TO CHIP ALL OUR PUPS AS I USUALLY DO--- AND WE MAY NEED TO HAVE SOME CP'S HELP IN KEEPING TRACK... REALISTICALLY--- OF HOW ANY OF OUR PUPS ARE DOING.
I HAVE TO GO OVER THE BLOODLINES TO BE SURE WE DONATE UNRELATED TO EITHER.. NOT ONLY FOR BREEDING PURPOASES BUT TO KEEP UP THE PROBABILITY OF NO HEALTH COMPLICATIONS.
AND WE WILL STOP ...I MMEDIATELY WITH THIS FABULOUS FAILURE NONSENSE THAT WAS CUTE BUT IT CAME BACK TO HAUNT ME WITH " WE WANT TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF FAILURES- WHEN IN FACT WE Have had darn few actual failures-- it is more the "we have a bigger littter than we planned on and need to find people who need a companion dog." the need there is also huge.... so maybe we should be a little more lax in the wordy definitions imposed upon us by the rest of the world.
just the presence of one of our dogs in alot of situations causes so many smiles and conversations that would otherwise never be had.... some poeple call them therapy dogs-- there we go again with words...
maybe i just have not been creative enough-- or courageous enough-- to just design a worthwhile program without the benifit any internationsal orgainzation which , quite rightly , is an effort to control any irresponsible dog trainer, is bent on limiting what we could do.
AGE 81 PRESENTED ME WITH THE ABILITY TO VENT MY FRUSTRATED RAGE TO A KINDLY SOUL IN THE ADI HIERARCHY WHO HAS KNOWN ME AND MY DOGS FOR 20 YEARS,
Stay the course. You are doing a great job!!!!
filled me with vim and viggor
EVE AND FINN
Today started the home baking-a-thon! I didn’t get pics today but I will. So Eve is on light duty for school this week. Besides baking = math right?!? But today she focused on writing a speech. For what you say??? Well our local intermediate school student council decided they would like to also support the Service Dog Project with a fundraiser!!! So today Eve told them a little more about herself and why she needs a SD like Finn and of course all about SDP! Then they worked on signs to post around the school. They will sell Candy Canes or “Holiday Jingles”. Kids pay $0.25 to have a candy cane sent to as many friends (or themselves) as they’d like. They will be giving the proceeds to The Service Dog Project!!! We are so thankful that they are doing this to help SDP!
