i keep getting distracted by this "grommet" catalog ad right beside my aol email. they do have some wierd stuff--- and i do enjoy them -- most reciently a gizmo for winding up long extension cords with a built in plug in.. i caN'T GET TO EXCITED ABOUT A THNG THAT MAKES X MARKS ON HOT DOGS, BUT SOME OF TEH STUFF IS INTERESTING.
NEXT TOPIC-- THAT #$%^&*&&^ PONY/MINI HORSE THAT IS IN WITH MY DONKEYS.. WHAT A SON OF A FEMALE DOG HE IS- ONE OF THE DONKEYS GOT HER HEAD STUCK IN A GATE FOR A FEW MINUTES AND HE BACKED UP TO HER AND KICKED HER GOOD ! I AM TOLD HE/SHE ( I HAVENT LOOKED) IS A WONDERFUL "THERAPY ANINMAL" -- WELL MAYBE, BUT IT IS A BAD ACTOR IN THE BARN.
THERAPY VISITS...THERE IS A HUGE NEED FOR CREATIVITY IN THE SENIOR / ASSISTED LIVING BUSINESS... A WELL RUN PLACE HAS AN ENTERTAINMENT CZAR WHO STRUGGLES TO KEEP THE PLACE ALIVE... THE NOT SO WELL RUN PLACE WHEELS PEOPLE IN AND OUT OF A COMMON ROOM WHERE THEY NAP NEXT TO A WINDOW FOR EXCITEMENT-- SOMETIMES THE WINDOW HAS A BIRD FEEDER FOR EXCITEMENT.
IT IS A STRUGGLE-- SO WHEN I ARRIVE WITH BENTLEY AND SIZZLE IT GENERALLY TURNS ANY PLACE TOTALLY UPSIDE DOWN WITH EXCITEMENT-- JUST TO HAVE BENTLEY FALL ASLEEP ON HIS SIDE HAS BEEN THE MOST EXCITING THING SOME OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE SEEN IN MONTHS. TEH STAFF ARE JUST AS BORED AS TEH RESIDENTS.
THERE IS A HUGE TENDENCY TO JUST GO ALONG THE EASY WAY.. BUT WHEN WE ARRIVE WITH OUR DOGS EVERY ENTERTAINMENT PERSON TRYS TO GET US SIGNED UP FOR ROUTINE VISITS AT 10:30 THURSDAY-
NOW JUDY AND I ARE BETTER AT TEH CREATIVE THAN THE ROUTINE- AND WE KEEP SEEING POSIBILITIES-- OF LATE.....IF WE COULD JUST CONVINCE BILL CUMMINGS TO BUY THAT SMALL FORD PANEL VAN WE COULD WALTZ THRU A BUNCH OF THESE PLACES WITH SOME OF THE "DIFFERENT" THINGS WHICH ARE NORMAL IN OUR LIVES... LIKE THAT #$%^&*() PONY.. OR A DONKEY ( MY PREFERENCE) ALONG WITH OUR BETTER TRAINED DOGS.
REMEMBER JUDY AND I DID A "PORTABLE CHICKEN SHATTING" WHICH WAS 199% SUCCESSFUL AND ENTERTAINING.
SO OUR PLAN IS TO DOCUMENT THESE THINGS BETTER AND SHOW BILL CUMMINGS TEH CHAOS WE CAN CREATE FOR THESE PEOPLE WHO REALLY COULD STAND SOME CHAOS.
TO THAT END WE HAVE PULLED OUT THE BAby buggy-- maybe too late-- this litter may have got too big already for the "pram" but we need to put a package together and present it to him/his foundation group.
a puppy in a pram will keep people smiling for dAYS.--
i have begun "hitting" teh senior living offices in each town hall..... and getting the listing of places we could go to...
lets face it-- these places are heated and airconditioned too. !
i even have a place programmed to give me a cuppa coffee when i take bentley there./
this has possibilities. lunch is next !! --- while being a great place to train service dogs
