our "goldie"( Ghost Of the Lefthand Drawer) has seen it necessary to reming me......REGARDING...summer--- with black dogs-- and sunlight -- and parking lots ANDHOT TOP (macadam) you have to think for them.... RECIPIENTS MUST BE REMINDED YOU MUST NEVER STOP TO TALK TO ANYBODY IN A PARKING LOT-- YOU WILL OVERHEAT AND/OR KILL YOUR BLACK DOG-- BETWEEN THE HOT TOP AND THE BLACK HAIR THE HEAT GENERATED IS UNBELIEVEABLE- EVEN WITH BENTLEY AND HIS SPOTS, THE BLACK AREAS GET SSOOOO MUCH HOTTER THAN THE WHITE ONES- TEH HOT TOP IS CERTAINLY HOT.TOIO.. BEND DOWN AND FEEL IT- YOU HAVE SHOES ON -- THEY DON'T.----- PUT THEIR HARNESS ON IN THE CAR AND WHEN THEY JUMP OUT, GET MOVING RIGHT AWAY FOR THE BUILDING--- OR EVEN CEMENT WALK... DO NOT STOP-- THiNK OF THEIR PAWS..
TEHN OF COURSE YOU NEVER LEAVE TEHM IN A CAR ANYWAY... BUT......I TELL EVERYONE... NEVER BE IN A POSITION OF HAVING YOU R DOG IN T HEE CAR AND ALL DOORS AND WINDOWS SHUT.- WHY?? WE DID HAVE A RECIPIENT HAVE HER DOG JUMP IN THE CAR-- SHE SHUT THE DOOR AND THEN FELL HITTING HER HEAD- LUCKILY SHE WAS NOT KNOCKED OUT.. BUT HAd an ambulance been called THEY MIGHT HAQVE HAULED HER AWAY NEVER NOTICING THE DOG IN THE CAR.,THUS KILLING HER DOG... ... SO WE JUST DON'T ---- HERE'S THE ROUTINE.... -- DRIVERS DOOR OPEN.--..BACKJ DOOR OPEN -- LOAD DOG-- SHUT BACK DOOR-- GET IN DRIVERS SEAT AND SHUT THE DOOR.- GET INTO THAT ROUTINE-- NEVER BE IN A POSITION OF BEING OUTSIDE THE CAR WITHYOU RDOG IN THE CAR -- ABND NO EXIT.
IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE UNTIL IT DOES.
I HAVE BEEN VERY LAX ALL WINTER ABOUT LOADING DOGS HERE-- I WATCH AND ALL TEH TRAINERS AND WALKERS ARE NOT DOING THT... WELL TODAY....STARTS A MADENING PROGRAM.... I THINK I WILL WEAR A WHISTLE-- HOW MADENING WILL THAT BE??? IT WON'T BE MADDENING AT ALL IF YOU AL DO IT RIGHT--- IT IS NOT A stupid rule with no logical benifit.....I WAS REMINDED WHEN GOLDIE MADE CAROLINE EMAIL THE MESSAGE......
I always remember your caveat to keep one car door open, so that the dog can get out and help you if you need it. I always keep the back door open until I get into the car safely (there is an open/close button in the driver’s side door). The other day when I was leaving school, i told Clark to load up, which he did right away. I then went towards the driver’s seat, but lost my grip on the door handle and fell to the ground (not hard). I called” Clark! Come!” He peeked around the back door and saw me on the ground. I could almost hear the “how did you get down there? You were upright 2 seconds ago!” He hopped down and dutifully helped me up. I got in the car and he loaded up (again), and we went on our way. But I was so glad I kept the hatch open!
Clark and I have been doing well. Almost the end of the semester! He has been working hard to help me to classes and to run research participants. We are getting our steps in, and that is so phenomenal that we are still walking together without other support. (ED... IT HAPPENS MINUS A WHEELCHAIR )
WE MUST WORK VERY HARD... WE HAVE A NEW "APPLICANT-TO BE" -- DAUGHTER OF VETERAN WITH SOME BELLQA LIKE PROBLEM WHO HAS JUST SEEN THE BELLA INFO FOR THE FIRST TIME AND CONTACTED US -- ALL EXCITED.... -- I WISH WE HAD A DOG "OFF THE SHELF" THE PARENTS ARE EXCITED TO TEARS THAT THEIR DAUGHTERE MIGHT BE ABLE TO DO WHAT BELLA DOES -- THEY DON'T REALIZE NOT EVERY DOG BORN HERE IS A GEORGE-- BUT WE CAN KEEP OUR EYES OPEN... OR RATHER MEGAN CAN ( SHE IS BACK TODAY- THANK HEAVENS) IT DOES SEEM THAT WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIND ONE OF TEH 19 CHUNKY MUNKEYS OF THE CONES AND COMETS.
HAVINGT ONE IN THE HOUSE AT ALL TIMES IS GOOD FOR THEM- AND DOES FIT IN OUR USUAL OPERAQTION-- LINDA -- WHO CAME HER VERY NERVOUS ABOUT THE BIG DOGS NOW ORDERS TEHEM AROUND LIKE A DRILL SARGENT.-- AND THEY LISTEN...TEH ROUTIEN IS FOR WHOEVER SIGNS TEH 5PM OVERNIGHT LIST THAT TELLS US WHIH DOG IS WHERE OVERNIGHT AND WHO IS HAVING A SLEEPOVER SOMEWHERE ELSE....- THAT PERWON BRINGS A DOG INTO T HE HOUSE TURNING IT LOOSE AND PICKS UP THE ONE HERE AND PUTS IT BACK IN SOME KENNEL OR ANOTHER.. SO THERE IS A 5pm to 7am night shift and a 7am to 5pm day shift \\
all these details can be mind boggling... except... for my poo picker report system... .. donna now enters all these details in a carefully engineered data file-- so i can tell all kinds of things..like
how many dogs in training? 29
avg out training on a thursday? 19
who was off property on april 4th? leo and megan
does teh payroll punch cards agree with the poo pickers? it better...
does everyone know what day it is? no
does the punch machine have a wrong date ? no
does teh litter of cones behave differently than the comets ? no.
all the way to
'which dogs have had "ladies bathroom training" ( most of them)
all made possibel by the fact that i learned to FILTER--- up til last monthall i could do was---SORT
THIS IS PROGRESS.
