THIRD AMBULANCE CALL YESTERDAY-- THINGS GO IN 3'S -- HOPEFULLY NOT IN MULTIPLES OF THREES... GROMMET AND OAKLY WERE both IN THE PARKING AREA YESTERDAY-- AN ERROR IN ARITHMETIC-- I HAVE A RULE OF ONLY 2 OF THOSE ROUND MANLY APPENDAGES ON THE SAME SIDE OF ANY FENCE... BUT WITH GROMMET ANE OAKLEY -- THAT MADE 4- AND OAKLEY BEING YOUNG HE WAS NOT REALLY INTO A BIG FIGHT-- GROMMET WAS HINDERED BY LINDA WHO NEVER LET GO OF HIS COLLAR-- SO AT ONE POINT SHE WAS DOWN WITH 2 SNARLING SNAPPING DOGS OVER AND ON HER- WHICH LOOKED DREADFUL FROM TEH PUPPY HILL CAMERA VIEWERS-
ONE "CP" rightly CALLED ME AT TEH HOUSE - ALL I HEARD WAS-- PERSON DOWN-- DOGS FIGHT, --BLOOD ALL OVER- SO I FLEW OUT THE DOOR AND TOLD LINDA TO CALL 911-- IT TOOK ME AN EXTRA 30 SECONDS TO GET THERE BECAUSE SOMEONE HAD PARKED A GOLF CART BLOCKING MY CAR- ONCE I SAW LINDA WAS OK AND THE BLOOD WAS NOT SQUIRTING ANYWHERE, I TRIED TO TURN OFF THE AMBU.
YOU CAn not do that... once called, they come and have to check out the problem..
linda by now was in her car-- with grommet , ready to go home- but she had to get out and have her blood pressure taken.
so in the shakedown analysis-- 2 things--- linda should have let go - i have a rule-- once a dog fight gets started - go have coffee- they will make a mess of each other-- but other than some gaping holes, they survive.--- teh second thing is---- per all our adi accreditation, my car is teh designated emergency vehicle which should be 100% available and full of gas. we need to redo the golf cart proceedures.
todays fyi---this may be wonderful- it also might be like the day we had 600 people at mail call trying to touch thier nose with their toe-- ( remember that one?..i can do that !!)---- this is a video by a chiropractor suggesting you can improve teh drainage of your sinus by massaging pathways across your head to beneath and in front of your ear then down your neck and tapping that pocket where your neck hits your shoulder.
both grace and i have been doing that for 1/2 hour now. to be continued....
today-----teh VA at Hanscom field ( bedford) has asked us ( judy and i ) to come and talk to them about dogs n general-- they ( apparently the VA) are beginning to take animal assisted therapy seriously ( AAT)- i think it sounds like tehy are wantign therapy dogs- on every friday - which is not the kind of thing we could do mostly because bedford is an hour each way and it is not a quick run thru as it is with teh senior living places... whatever they need, i am sure we could do-- except it would detract from our origional mission... and ..per usual... t hey- at the moment do not offer any pay- so to maximise our benefit for veterans, we will probably be offering advice only--
first problem-- we are to go to building 72-- i know this place--- they have an information building--- it is way far as possible from the only entrance to the complex.- and all the parking bears little relationship to accessing any of teh many buildings. i looked at teh satelite image ---take route 4 off 128 and it is out there-- with a golf course that is easily identified. just think of judy and i wandering around those 80 odd governmental buildings with dogs... i suggested we go very early.
it should be interesting. somehow i don't expect it to be financially profitable... but what the heck.
