 TOILET SEAT  BOLTS --  I S THERE ANYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD WHO WOULD BE ALL EXCEITED ABOUT GETTING  TOILET  SEAT BOLTS IN THE MAIL??  APPARENTLY ----A CP FROM NOVASCOTIA -- SHAWNA--VISITED HERE LAST CHRISTMAS.  SHE STAYED IN THE UPSTAIR BEDROOMS, AND.... SHALL WE SAY  "IN A PINCH" .....JERRYRIGGED  THE TOILET SEAT BOLTS WITH ZIP TYES.... .. KNOWING CRAZY ACRES, SHE THOUGHT MAYBE THEY WERE STILL THERE ( THEY WERE) SO SHE SENT   SOME IN A BIG BOX WITH  "OTHER TREATS FOIR THE VOLUNTEERS." -LIKE WALKERS  SCOTISH SHORTBREAD--
NOW THAT IS WHAT I CALL ... LOOKING OUT FOR SDP-- AND PAYING IT FORWARD !!

BECAUSE BUD WAS HERE WHEN THEY ARRIVED, THEY HAVE BEEN INSTALLED SO YOU CAN ENJOY THE PAUSE THAT REFRESSHES WHEN YOU ARE HERE NEXT  CHRISTMAS.

SO MANY TIMES A CP WILL BE OUT IN THE REAL WORLD OR  SEE SOMETHING ON CAMERA  THEY NOTICED WAS MISSING- OR NEEDED ..  LIKE DUCT TAPE..   I HESITATE TO MENTION  ANYTHING EVER SINCE TEH  59 BIRD HOUSE EPISODE-    IF YOU VISIT HERE, YOU WILL NOTICE SOME ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR BIRD HOUSES AROUND THE FARM...  THAT ALL CAME FROM  SOME MAIL CALL  CONVERSATION ABOUT BIRDS EATING BUGS AND MAYBE IF I HAD A BIRD HOUSE THEY WOULD LIVE  IN THAT INSTEAD OF THE BARN. AND I GOT 59 IN ONE DAY   TEHRE WERE A COUPLE SO SPECTACULAR THAT THEY ARE HANGING AROUND  IN THE HOUSE CAUSING PEOPLE TO PAUSE AT LEAST FOR A MOMENT...  THE PURPLE HAT CERAMIC  ONE IS RIGHT OUSIDE THE T TENT- BUT THEY ARE ALL OVER.
****
ALONG THAT VEIN........ THERE ARE HATS.... creatiive hats....  
THIS STARTED WHEN SOMEONE OFFERED TO BUY A CHICKEN BRICK A DAY IF I WORE THE HAT at 5pm mail call  FOR TEH MONTH -- TURNS OUT 2 OTHER5 PEOPLE JOINED HER/HIM-  resultitn in a lovely $900 donation  for  teh month--  and now... i wear teh november hat of "peanuts"  varitey--  and i already have 3 hats in the overflow room in prep for the wearing of teh hat in december.- so maybe in december i shoujld vary teh hats and not wear the same one fror the month.   camera mark is a ccollector of hats- so all used hats will have a  permanent home after mail call-- ,  i will  plan to wear each for a day or two...depending on the number of hats i get--  i do not expect all these to be store bought-- all i ask is that they actually be wearable.... and that i can see while wearing tehm. .. OH....  each hat SHOULD  have a 10 cent donation.. which i will put in the water jug.

thanksgiving---   doesn't make any difference to the animals-- they still need water food and removal of teh "used food"----  there are 2 places here that provice teh entier dinner ---the function  restaurant-- and whole foods... maybe we couod expiriment with whole foods.  i never know how many will show-- we need  the usual staff and volunteers- so if anyone would like to volunteer and have  a turkey diinner, might be  good to let me know so i can order enough turkeys.  last year a bunch o f my relatives showed-- we had 2 turkeys and 5 big RV's   fun crowd...  they are all going to ? arlington va this year..   i stay put.

i can-- and will fly--- but not without a very good  reason...fr:  donald swann..."if God had intended us to fly, he would never have given us the railways. "  and why do it...-- on the worst travel days of teh year-? made worst by everyone believing  there is no place like home for the holidays--  so what's teh matter with  the 3rd thursday in may.... or my old favorite --labor day-- when you went back home to go  to school. lABOR DAY HARDLY EXISTS ANYMORE WITH SCHOOL STARTING IN AUGUST SOMETIME. 

my favorite thanksgiving story......
camera mike-- took several vials of "puppy breath"   from here to sprinkle over his thanksgiving table so teh family didn't get in an arguenemt about anything.  we should have a  T'day special on those---  2 for $8

Hello Carlene  -
You don’t hear from me very often because my life is pretty dull.  But today (Tuesday the 19th) I went to Costco and bought a luscious chocolate cake and took it to Firehouse #16, in the west part of Tacoma, Washington.   As you can imagine, they were delighted.
I left one of the print-outs from your websites, so they would know where the idea came from.
Thanks for getting this going.

 please let me clear up one thing---no---   i am definitely not a  man hater..  i love men... sometimes not always the one society thinks would be proper... but i sure haTE THEM IN THE WORK PLace--  remember, i am of the age where... as a 15 year old i was carefully taught to iron a mans white shirt-- because " someday i would have to"-- that was well before i put the stove out on the street with a free sign  to eliminate the concept of kitchen and cooking. now with door dash  delivery the production of food is even simpler.

 i thought this was an interesting  life story email i got re  stubborn and strong

Thanks, Carlene. By the way, I thought your discussion of "negative nest" in yesterday's DD was dead on. It baffles me how people can be so...stupid.
I also related to your "only" discussion. I am 70 years old, and a retired attorney. I started practicing law (in Alaska, where I moved from Denver, where I went to law school, in 1975; grew up in the midwest - Ohio; went to undergraduate school in Minn and at Cambridge U in England, so I enjoyed reading elsewhere about your studies abroad). I was raised by a father who was a teenager during the Great Depression, his father went bankrupt because he owned a grocery store and let people have food for free, and then died of a heart attack when Dad was 18. His mother was a school teacher and raised he and his sister, who became an RN. Dad joined the  Marine Corps, but was never able to attend college for financial reasons. My mother was an RN who did not work outside our home after she married Dad, and my sister and I were born. 11 months apart! (so I relate to Terrie and Millie because we were then growing up inseparable, and we are still best friends even though we live thousands of miles apart and have very different life styles). Dad and Mom raised my sister and I to believe we could be whatever we wanted to be (as long as we went to college; my sister briefly flirted with becoming a flight attendant, which at least at that time did not require a college degree, and my parents put the kibosh on that idea). He thought us to hunt,m fish, ski (we lived in the country, surrounded by farms). Our relationship somewhat frayed during my college years as I became a bleacher radical, protesting against the Vietnam War, and Dad was a diehard Republican as well as a former Marine. We could not even make it out of the Cleveland Airport parking lot without starting to argue about something political, as my mother shook her head.
Anyway, I was living in The Last Frontier, where there were a surprising number o female attorneys, but the male attorneys were not enlightened. Neither were the judges. They would enter the courtroom and address the attending counsel as "gentlemen". We raised enough of a ruckus to end that conduct. We were not treated as equals in law firms though I did attain partnership in record time. Clients were not always comfortable with their attorneys being women and often rudely disdained us in our presence. I was able to blow them off with the support of my partners, fortunately. When I became General Counsel at a large electric utility, I was completely ignorant about electricity and engineering. I was surrounded by engineers - electrical, mechanical, civil. They think differently than normal people. We had to learn to appreciate one another's value to projects. One of the chief engineers was from Germany, having grown up in what was East Germany, and she became and still is a close friend. She is 80. She and my teeth ground whenever we were referred to as "lady engineer" or "woman lawyer." We refused to join organizations that were so titled. We were, respectively, an engineer, or an attorney. Forget the labels. We were and are both stubborn and strong minded. Our opinions were often discounted as most of the other management employees were men. And we had opinions about things which were not necessarily in our areas of expertise but nonetheless felt we were entitled to express our point of view. 

Have a great day. I love what you do. I read and watched videos about SDP on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter tonight and into the wee hours  ( I have a circadium sleep disorder so my sleep schedule is completely screwed up, even given the four hour time difference between Alaska and Massachusetts) and was brought to tears as I frequently have been with the stories about your clients/recipients, as well as with laughter over some of the faces of those dogs, and their ridiculously funny behavior!
Best wishes for the day,
Carol

george ( teh dvm.... not the dog)  is due here  mid morning to give an opinion on gabby and ?in heat? neither bentley or walter are thrilled to have her visit  -- which you realize they would not be  intensely  fascinated until about day 8 or 9  but they should be at least curious early in the heat cycle.

she had  the disney pups aug first.. so it is abnormally early.

CAKE DAY !! WE ARE CAKING  AT LEAST ONE FIRE DEPARTMENT IN 49 STATES SO GET OUT THERE.....
***
I NEARLY HAD TO STOP A POLICEMAN AND ASK HIM TO HOOK UP MY SEAT BELT...100 YEARS AGO  I WAS LEADING SOME HORSE SOMEWHER -- IT REARED AND I HUNG ON --SO MY RIGHT SHOULDER NEARLY WENT WITH IT.-- I AM TOLD ONCE YOU HAEV DISLOCATED A SHOULDER, YOU ARE MORE INCLINED TO DO IT AGAIN.-- AND --IT HAS THRU THE YEARS--SOMETHING ABOUT GETTING STRETCHED....NOW AT THIS AGE EVERYTHING SEEMS STRETCHED  BUT TO DISLOCATE IT WHILE SITTING IN THE CAR TALKING TO LYNN???  ?   OLD AGE IS NOT FOR THE MEEK.....
 I NEVER SAW TEH NEED TO GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM TO HAVE A DOCTOR POP IT Baack in place- I HAD MY OWN "IN HOUSE" PHYSICIAN... AND AS PAINFUL AS IT WAS  IN EITHER THE EMERGENCY ROOM OR THE BACK YARD--  TEH BACK YARD SAVED TIME...  I DO REMEMBER HIM SAYING THE FASTER WE SNAP IT BACK TEH EASIER-- AS  HE PUT  HIS FOOT IN MY ARMPIT    -- EVEN NOW IN TEH CAR....  - IT GOT ITSELF  BACK WHERE IT BELONGS.... WELL ---  IT WAS PROBABLY ONLY A PARTIAL----
**
LYNN WAS HERE TO DELIVER GABBY-- WHO IS -- SHE THINKS-- IN HEAT-- GABBY JUST HAD TEH DISNEY LITTER   AUG 1ST... BUT AS GEORGE SAYS-- IF NATURE SAYS IT IS OK TO HAVE ANOTHER-- THEN IT IS... WE HAVE HAD MOTHERS WHO HAVE HAD 3- 4 AND EVEN 5 LITTERS-- .-- WELL ---LET ME TELL YOU THE DETAILS-- JUST FOR YOUR EDUCATION.....LYNN HAS  WATSON ( STUD DOG) AND WATSON HAS BEEN FASCINATED WITH GABBYS REAR- AND THERE HAS BEEN  A " DRIP/ DISCHARGE OF  RED SOMETHING" 
IT IS VERY EARLY FOR HER TO BE IN HEAT- BUT SOMETIMES TEH  MALES ARE CONFUSED BY A URINARY TRACT INFECTION- AND WHEN ASKED IF IT IS HEAT OR A UTI-- TEH MALES OPT FOR THE HEAT WITH HOPES...SO... FIRSTLY WE WILL SEE WHAT BENTLEY HAS TO SAY ABOUT THE NEW VISITOR INT TEH HONEYMOON HILL KENNELS- AND IF BENTLEY IS INTERESTED,   I  WILL ASK GEORGE(DVM GEORGE) TO HAV A LOOK AT HER AND SEE IF THERE IS ANY REASON HE CAN SEE NOT TO BREED HER-- SO IF MOMMY NATURE, BENTLEY AND GEORGE ALL AGREE, MAYBE WE CAN START ANOTHER LITTER-??TIGGER?? OR GET OUT THE AMOXICILLIN   ---
 
 SPEAKING OF DOCTORS... IT IS BETTER NOW.... BUT...... FOR YEARS  WOMEN HAVE BEEN ACCUSED OF NOT POSSESSING ANY LOGICAL ABILITIES --  AT THIS MOMENT--- I AM NOT WILLING TO ARGUE THAT ONE -- WHAT I WILL ARGUE IS ...  FROM TEH EXTENSIVE RESEARCH I HAVE DONE IN THE PAST 14 HOURS, I REALIZE THAT WE WOMEN DO HAVE AN EQUAL AND OPPOSITE ARGUENMENT---  MEN ARE EXTREMELY BAD "LOOKERS".....  HOW MANY TIMES... "IT IS RIGHT THERE ON THE KITCHEN COUNTER-- IT IS THE ONLY THING THERE"  AND TYPICALLY, TEH MAN/ HUSBAND/ WHATEVER.... CAN'T FIND IT. -- SOME.... MANY... OF THE NOTABLE MALE PROFESSIONS HAVE BEEN TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON A FEMALE TO KEEP THE DETAILS STRAIGHT.. FROM DOCTORS WITH FEMALE NURSES, EXECS WITH SECRETARIES..  TO POPES WITH NUNS. AND MOSTLY THE ONLY REASON IS MALES ARE BIGGER AND LOUDER????
*****
OK -- SO ANOTHER LECTURE  - I Am really mad at this one
GREATEST DOG IN THE WORLD-- GEORGE--- PERFECT DOG... and i got this 

GOOD MORNING,
SO TODAY WE WERE AT THE BURLINGTON MALL AND WE WENT IN THE ELEVATOR 2 TIMES. BOTH TIMES GEORGE SHOOK AND COWERED. HE TRIED TO GET LOW TO THE GROUND WITHOUT LAYING DOWN.  I AM HOPING THIS ISNT A TREND SINCE HE HAS SEEMED FINE ON ELEVATORS UNTIL TODAY.  Rachael

the  only reason i will rip into this  is that rachael ( bellas mom) is a very bright woman-- but to have soo quickly decided there was something wrong with george blows my mind--  and it happens soooooo often   ---dog has problem with elevator--- if there is something we don't understand, we leap at the first human response forgetting that maybe--- just maybe  the dog is right..   there is something wrong but the wrong is with teh elevator ... not the dog.
a dog has so many more acute senses that tehy might be detectiong something yu can not hear/see/smell.
and of all things-- an elevatorr---
 after bentley and i got KNOCKED OUT ,  electrocuted by that kone elevator..
 and bella AND GEORGE GOT LOCKED BETWEEN FLOORS ON AN ELEVATOR IN SCHOOL--  WITH A  "DID NOT PASS INSPECTION"   STICKER-- 
AND YOU DARE TO DOUBT THE DOG??????--
FOR NEW PEOPLE--- ALL I ASKED OF KONE WAS TO REPLACE BENTLEY AS STUD/SERVICE DOG- WHICH WOULD HAVE COST A PRETTY PENNY-- BUT THE  RESPONSE OF "JUST GO BUY ANOTHER DOG"---  HAD A SPECIAL RING TO IT. 
ALONG WITH   "YOU ARE 79-- THEY WILL JUST  OUT LAST YOU WITH LEGAL NONSENSE"   A LOST CAUSE. 

*** 
The deed on our first house read, my husband’s name and “ET UX” (Latin for and chattel).  I am not a cow, not chattel, not a non-person!  I made my point to the Greek attorney and insisted that I would not sign the document until “ET UX” was removed and my name added.
Young women don’t seem to know how much has legally changed since the 1970s, yet how few men’s opinions have changed since then.AARGH.

NEGATIVE NEST---  I  THINK  I  JUST COINED THAT PHRASE- AND IT IS A DESCRIPTIVE ONE -  DIDN'T SOMEONE WRITE A CHILDRENS NOVEL ABOUT THE SKY IS FALLING????  EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE  SINCE WE HAVE HAD CAMERAS  INSTALLED IN 2012 AND BEGAN TO BUILD  SDP AS A  VIRTUAL COMMUNITY OF INTERESTING PEOPLE.....- SOMEONE WILL GET A NEGATIVE IDEA--- AND A COUPLE PEOPLE WILL RUN WITH IT.... BUILDING A NEGATIVE NEST

TEH CREATIVITY OF SOME OF THESE PEOPLE IS INCREDIBLE- BELLA AND GEORGE-- WHAT A GREAT STORY----- DID I NOT GET    "WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT ALL THE KIDS YOU ARE NOT HELPING?"  TEH ONLY ANSWER   "NOTHING"  BY DEFINITION--    THAT CAN GET SOMONE OFF ON A NEGATIVE " SDP ONLY HELPS ONE PERSON AT A TIME" NEXT THING YOU GET A NEST OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE JUST BEEN WAITING TO BUILD A NEGATIVE NEST OF LIKE  MINDS...

WELL LETS UNLOAD TEH "ONLY"  ---SDP DOES HELP ONE PERSON AT A TIME..that #$%^&*word "only"  has a history in my life-- and the life of most women my age...  only a woman-- i know alot of stories on that one.
****

I CAN REMEMBER----( HERE WE GO---THIS WILL BE A LONG-- touchy---  ONE--) SITTING WITH SISTER AND BROTHER IN LAW, A PRIVATE PILOT,   IN A RESTAURANT BOOTH- WE GOT TO TALKING ABOUT  FLYING  WITH OR AGAINST TEH WIND.- START WITH -- I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT-- WHICH NEVER STOPPED ME FROM ARGUING- HE PROBABLY QUITE RIGHTLY SAID YOU GO FASTER WITH PREVAILING WINDS.. ME... WITH ZERO FLYING KNOWLEDGE-- SAID "THAT  LIGHT AIRCRAFT   AROUND TEH WORLD FLIGHT WENT FROM EAST TO WEST"  WHICH STArrted a very loud arguement- because with all his knowledge-- which was considerable-- all i had to say was "they went my way"====== the volume of the "discussion " was so intense  that the man inthe next booth stood up and said  " what are you ? two aeronautical engineeers??" and my brother in law said "SHE'S ONLY A DOG TRAINER "-- it took me 25 years to say "just you wait a minute-- SKIP THAT "ONLY"  PART....   i am a  dog trainer -- a very good dog trainer"   AND BUOYED UP BY GEROGE BUSH SENIOR'S "IF YOU CAN'T HELP THOUSANDS, HELP ONE" - AND SDP WAS OFF AND RUNNING. 
DANM WORD "ONLY"  -

NEXT TIME I HAVE NOTHING TO WRITE ABOTU  I WILL DISCUSS MY LIFE WITH  BUILDING INSPECTORS. AND HIS "YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE, YOU ARE ONLY A WOMAN"   NOTE TEH PLURAL INSPECTOR****S*****

P.S.. MY AERONAutical arguement went on the fact that  teh plane had to  have  a certain speed under it'as wings to stay up-- and gong with the wind would mean it had to use it's engines all the time?????  think pigeons  against teh wind...!!! 

i am sure someont of you will have input on that one...

NOV 17 2019

I HATE TO TELL TEH ADVERTISING PEOPLE, BUT I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND 78% OF TEH ADS ON TV-- I AM SUPPOSED TO BUY SOMETHING I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF , OR PAY FOR A SERVICE I DIDN'T KNOW I NEEDED... HIGHEST ON TEH    RIDICU-LIST   IS  SECURITY SERVICES--- THE LAST ONE THAT CALLED GAVE ME THE SPEIL ABOUT  HOW HAVING A DOG WAS NOT ENOUGH, SO I SAID IF HE COULD GET UP TEH DRIVEEWAY WITHOUT MY KNOWING IT, I WOULD TALK TO HIM- I HAD FUN WITH THAT BEFORE I SAID "OH About 50 great danes"   he never showed...
however- yesterday i learned about 4G and 5G services--- and how tehy related to our road show project.. after many suggestions from our  "CP research group"   it was suggested i look into a hotspot... which is not the gooey messsy open summer sore on a dog... but  sort of a telephone like device into which you can plug your computer and have it function just about anywhere  without anyone's firewalls and passwords... so to demo explore.org in these places , all i need is my laptop, an xxxx cord from hottspot to computer and then if they have a smart tv  an hdmi  from my laptop to their  big screen computer..
there is no way i could- at the moment waltz into a adult day care directors office and have to clear passwords and the like-- especially with my hands which are known to hit 3 different buttons at oondce-- as you all know from my typing...
sooooooooooo since charlie was so generous, i went ahead and ordered a verizon hotspot-- for $600 which can be connected with wire--( or  BE wireless--WHICH I DO NOT PLAN TO LET IT DO) to my laptop which can then be connected to  teh many "smart tv' we have run into in the 100 places judy and i have been to.  then make notE  of the details,, make model .. etc.. and get janine to figure out how best to set them up. 
we need a real data file of detiails before we try and get someone to sponsor  whatever is needed.. these places all have internet somhow.... with passwords and  firewalls... 
fool me once shame on you  fool me twice shame on me... i ain't buying that "WHOOPIE WIRELESS " concept anymore-- those "THEY" people  have it all planned-- LIKE TEH HP PRINTERS WHO GIVE AWAY COMPUTER PRINTERS AND THEN CHARGE $634 FOR TEH INK CARTERIDGES./  IT ISN'T PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE BUT THE  PLANNED DISASSOCIATION  WHERE IF TEH REMOTE GETS MORE THAN 6 INCHES FROM IT'S REMOTABLE DEVICE,, IT IS JUSTY PLAIN GONE-- TO BE FOUND AND PLACED IN THE BIN OF  57 DISSOCIATED REMOTES-- WAITING FOR SOME ONE WITH ENOUGH TIME TO SIT AND TRY THEM-- MAKING CAREFUL NOTE THAT REMOTE #32 RAISES THE GARAGE DOOR AND REMOTE #15 LOWERS  THE TOP OF TEH BED.
JOYCE IS A TECH SAVY TYPE AND SHOWED ME HER PHONE  WHICH COULD LIST ALL THE REMOTE SIGNALOS SHE GOT STANDING HEERE BY MY DESK... I DIDN'T KNJOW  YOU COULD DO THAT...   SHE COULD SEE... THIS ONE IS YOUR PRINTER, THAt one is your computer, and , then gate opener... etc..  i didn't know a cell phone could be asked to do that... i think it was "available signals" somehow... 
withthaT I CAN ALSO DEMO THE  "OK GOOGLE"   BUTTON WHICH CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTION AND IS FUN TO PLAY WITH IN THESE GROUPS..."HOW FAST CAN A BAT FLY" WAS MY FAVORITE...
IF WE CAN SOLVE THIS-- IT SHOUDL IMPROVE THE DAILY LIFE OF  MANY VERY BORED ADULTS BEHIND LOCKED DOORS...
SO BACK TO MY FYI OF TEH DAY..... 4G AND 5G
HAS TO DO WITH HOW MUCH  STUFF IS TRANSMITTED HOW FAST??? AND  IN BUYING TEH 5G MODEL HOT SPOT -- WHICH .."WILL WORK WITH 4G UNTIL 5G IS AVAILABLE INN YOUR AREA,"...   I FOUND THAT THEY JUST DID 5G IN ST LOUIS--- BUT BOSTON IS ON THERI "NEXT" LIST...   SO I GAMBLED.

From Pockets trainer Kaleigh
My beautiful friend Pockets. She is the first donkey I’ve ever trained to do tricks, and I’m happy to say that she is excelling! I’ve been working with her on things like bowing, saying yes and no, side stepping, the Spanish walk, and pedestal training and have moved on to teaching her to lay down, fetch, and pick things up on command. She has been teaching me the importance of creativity, baby steps, and a new level of patience. I guess I’m doing something right since she comes running every time I call her over to start a session! I love learning from her and watching our progress together

NOV 16 2019

i think we need to re-do our generic response to visiting here..we welcome our  shatupon supporters any day 7 am to 7pm-- 365 ( or 366)  it is just on sunday that we are a bit more organized  to sit around and talk... otherwise--- you takes us as you finds us.... and might even be asked to  lift or push as we deal with our mental blocks. 

 if you are a "camera person", you know what you are getting into when you come here... if you have watched all teh cameras on our web, you know laundry needs folding, poo needs picking, doggie dishes need washing, fences  need mending...and computers need a severe talking to.  this is not a spa---and certainly if any of you need a soft sofa to lay your head as you pass  thru or around boston, we can manage that --- just ask linda if tehre is an available sofa....-- but let me warn you--- we are up working at 7am-- and expect that of anyone on property..
that was the  strict rule  when my children brought  college friends here- ah..   those were the days of leaning  slightly inebriated kids up against a tree at 7am.

we had a caboose-- done up like an appartment ( of sorts)  and i had not yet forbidden teh use of alchohol on the property-- so late at night i would hear  "wooo wooo wooo" as they supported themselves with teh overhead rails- pure subway style.   oh i could tell you some tales there-- except all those kids are now grownups in inpressive jobs in the "business" community.  
i haD an ocassionto be in an elevator with one of them- and aLL I HAD TO SAY WAS "I REMEMBER.." AND THE BLOOD DRAINED FROM HIS/HER  FACE.... WITH AN "OH NO"  I WENT NO FURTHER-- BUT IT WAS WORTH IT ! 
***
YOU CAN BUY CABOOSES- AT LEAST YOU COULD--- IN ERIE PENNA--- THERE WERE HUNDREDS ALL LINED IU ( AS THEY WOULD BE ON RAILS )  I SPENT ONE DAY GOING IN AND OUT OF THOSE DESERTED RELICS-- NO TWO AR E QUITE THE SAME- AND ALL ARE VERY CONDUCIVE TO SLEEPING QUARTERS FOR A COUPLE PEOPLE- IT COST $2500 DELIVERED TO THE NEAREST CON RAIL YARD - WHICH WAS JUST NORTH OF BOSTON.. THE THING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CABOOSES IS-- THEY EASILY COME APART-- IF YOU HAVE A CRANE HANDY-- WHICH FOR $2000 I DID-   THAT GAVE ME  LIVING QUARTERS FOR 6 PEOPLE FOR $4500--  IT WAS A BARGAIN---
TEHRE ARE COMPANIES WHO DO THIS STUFF---ALL I HAD TO DO WAS PAY THEM AND THEY LIFTED THE BODY PART ONTO A TRUCK-- THAT LEFT TEH 2 SETS OF WHEELS TO BE LIFTED ON A SECOND TRUCK-- THERE IS ONLY A STRAIGHT PIN THAT HOLDS THE BODY ON TEH WHEELS-- NOT EVEN A COTTER PIN TO SECURE IT--  JUST TEHE WEIGHT---
BEING A COMPANY THT IS USED TO THIS STUFF, TEHY GOT THE PERMITS TO DRIVE THIS TO MY HOUSE AT 4AM-- HAVING DEALT WITH OVERHEAD WIRES/ BRIDGES, POLICE  AND THE LIKE

I HAD ALREEADY LOCATED 2 RAILS AND PUT THEM IN THE STONEDUST -- ALMOST PARALELL- LET ME TELL YOU THOSE TOO ARE HEAVY-- IT WAS MY INTRODUCTION TO MULES- AS I HAD A WORK MULE HERE WHO VERY PATIENTLY MOVED THOSE RAILS INTO PLACE.

IT SAT FOR YEARS WHRER THE  T TENT NOW IS.- I FOUND OUT THAT SPOT IS THE NICEST SPOT ON TH EPROPERTY FOR GENTEL BREEZES IN THE SUMMER-- SO WHEN TEH CABOOSE WENT ( I THINK I HAD TO GIVE IT AWAY)   I CUT DOWN A TREE. HAD IT SLICED INTO BOARDS, NAILED THEM TOGETHRE- AND HERE WE ARE.
I CARRIED A  BIG SCREWDRIVER IN MY CAR FOR A YEAR  TO AQQUIRE TEH NECESSARY COBBLESTONES FOR THE FLOOR FROM  FRONT STREET NEWBURGH, NEW YORK TO HAVERHILL AND   CHELSEA MASS.
WHEN THE FLOORBOARDS OF MY OLD CAR FINALLY GAVE WAY, I DID HAVE TO BUY A FEW-- BUT I DID WELL;
******
SOOOO.. BACK TO THE GARAGE DOOR--- I HAD LOTS OF COMMENTS/SUGGESTIONS
problem is if someone tres to open the garaage door and tteh man door is not 100% closed you wreck both.. i could see that happening herer where even unplugging the elect just would get screwed up
****
TODAY , RE: THESE ADULT DAY CARE CENTEFRRS...... I NEED HELP WITH UNDERSTANDING THE HOOKING UP A SMART TV TO A LAPTOP-- OR SOME DEVICE  TO GET THEESE BLACK SCREENS  TO CARRY THE EXPLORE.ORG CAMERAS...
RICHARD #287 SUGGESTED A HOT SPOT- ABOUT WHICH I KNOW NOTHING--- 
CAN SOMEONE SEND ME SUGGESTIONS?  LARGEST PROBLEM HERE IS MOST OF THSE SMART TV'S HAV LOST THE REMOTE... AND - AT LEAST ON MY SMART TV-- THERE ARE BUTTONS LOWER RIGHT
IS THERE AN EXPERT IN THIS COMMUNITY WHO CAN HELP.

P.S.  WE HAVE ALOT OF RICHARDS-- INCLUDING SIR RICHARD, THE NEW STUD DOG FROM CZECH

nov 15 2019
time to mix teh 2 german pups with some of the sdp last litter-  like maybe on puppy hill -- like after 9:00 when megan gets here...  just in case we get a battle going...  
my options are  to start with 2... one of each-- millie and jimminey and tehn terrie and stitch  -- if that goers well tehn all 4 under supervision...-- then get  millie and tarrie introduced to the in out ( probably take devlin  who's slight build migh not get stuck in gthe inout door.)

i did finally find someone who would tackl e our garage door problem-- we really need a "man door"   which 3 companies refused to install-- finally one said "if any would do it, it was danvers garage door company.... they are nuts"   soundsed like my kind of person.. so mr danvers did come here and after standing around for a bit- suggested a 36" door and a 5 foot typical garage door ... for large items...  sounds like a perfect solution... a 5' garage door wii get the smaller tractor in to carry/ lift larfge and heavy which does land there somertimes... like the commercial washer.

now for dog's winter coats-- natural and store bought-
" he's a dog and does not eneed a coat"-- is perfect logic for some dogs- but horrible for others...  the worst i know is teh newly rescued greyhound-- with a very fine natural "coat" and no fat --  i have been known to give some of our odd size coats to any shivering greyonnd i see--- lordy-- even a trash bag to cut the wind would help them-   the great danes are not too far behind...  tehir hair coat is by no means thick--  tehre is no  "undercoat" like teh german shephards, or corgi's have..  so if you need a coat, they wilol too if you are gong to be out in the wind  for more than a few minutes.  and literally a garbage bag  artistically cut  with a piece of duct tape is a huge help-- best to practice that in the house and explain to t hem that it is just a "jacket?
 those whte kitchen trash bags do work-- .  i maybe wilol demo sometime at mail call.  it should go round without duct tape getting involved with the boy/girl/ nursing mother obsticales.
there are some vey  small dogs without much hair either-- probably grocery bag size...

as for teh donkeys--all ours not only grow a heavy winter coat-  and fat----   but they have a way of standing rear end up to a tree in such a way that teh tree cuts the draft.  so if you don't see them trying to get out of teh wind, then it is not bad enough for them to care...-- there ae some big heaby trees in that pasture-- as long as they don't strip teh bark off them...

and then there is .... water.... i.e. in new england... ice... -- once we get organized it is fine...  i have been all sorts of frost free water supply---electric melting- strange concepts.. an i think the safest- most organized is to have a bunch of buckets all teh same shape-- when you water off at 5pm  top off 4 or 5 with a bit of warjm water---which givesw teh donks a chance to get a drink before it freezes-- which it will.. so in the morning  you take all the buckerts out of the barn-- line them up ... then you take one of teh matching buckets with 1/2 full of hot water and dunk each bucket for 4 seconds-- and  immediately tip out the block of ice-- which cleans all teh  non ice contents of teh buckets too-- in our situation- it does help to have a stocik tank for dipping to refil... but you must have a dipping bucket which  hung  and  never set on the ground.

and the very best way is to get someone else to do all that..
.-- nearly every year  teh watereers go thru a bunch of ways to deal with ice-- and eventually  they come back to dunk'n'tip;

GOLDIE  --- our Ghost Of the Lefthand Drawer-  is at it again.  quickly.... for newcommers
**  fact #1...out of the clear blue my top left drawer had a horrid stench-- of unknown origin..  was there for 2-3 ? weeks  in spite of dawn, lysol, chlorox, all teh way to annisett liquor.  
** fact #2  just when i had given up.... just as quickly as it came-- it was gone for no immediate reason.
** fact #3- things appear around here- dozens- most noteably - one day at amil call...  i got the idea of having frying pans so people did not hand feed the donkeys and i talked about it- within  10 minutes  i opened a package with 2 purple fry pans.  i would have to consult the cmaera people to remember some of the many others... except....
last week-- - while looking over some german bloodlines -before i bought the 2 pups- out of the clear blue- i got worried about cleaning fluids-   -- and how one never mixes chlorox and amonia and lives to tell about it. i ripped and tore into that product-- with labels-- ok it was useful in veternarian situations  but i was worried about who might combine it wilt any other-- did all our volunteers have "proper instructions about the use of xxxx" i was clearly quite neurotic about it for at least an hour. 
  today... in the news-- in andover--all of 4 miles away- a man died from mixing cleaning fluids  for the floor in a restaurant  

OK GOLDIE-- I GOT THE MESSAGE... SO  I WILL TODAY... LOCATE TEH VARIOUS PRODUCTS And put warning labels on them--  we do use cholrox -- and that is  one that  causes death when mixed...  so this "new" product  may well be harmless when used properly,    what happens when a volunteer gets creative and tries to be helpful-- so Goldie-- i am on itl;.
100 years ago someone decided teh rats were a problem in the barn...and brought in some rat poizon not realizing that a dead or dying rat is a chew toy for a dog...-- clean healthy grain fed rats are  a fact of life in neartly every barn- especially as we get into winter when they move in from the 1000 acre forest behind us.   we do have a video of an owl catching one for it's dinner... in teh goat stall-
if they get too prolific  we do result in using  snap traps--  tehn quickly putting them in the freezer so we can becoem  teh FROZEN RODENT DELIVERY COMPANY--- for teh  raptor rehabilitators in the area.

So be careful what you defrost out of our freezers.

A HAIRDRYER !  A HAIR DRYER --- MY KINGDOM FOR A HAIRDRYER !  A BLAZING FIRE MAY BE VERY POETIC- BUT WHEN JACK  (FROST)   BREZZES IN THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR SHOVING A HAIRDRYER DOWN TEH FRONT OF YOUR  JACKET/SWEATER AND GET YOUR CORE    ATMOSPHERE UP TO 72 DEGREES WITHOUT HEATING A WHOLE ROOM. 
WANT  TO CLIMB INTO A NICE TOASTY BED?  CAREFUL USE OF A HAIRDRYEER WILL FIX THAT... OF COURSE - SOME CONSIDERATION  SHOULOD BVE GIVEN FOR BURINING TH  HOUSE DOWN.... BUT IF YOU DON'T YOUR BED WILL BE WARM/ 

THIS CONSEPT OF  INDIVIDUAL ATMOSPHERE  HAS NEARLY BEEN WIPED OUT BY THE HOMES BUILT AROUND HERE... 5 BEDROOS -- 2.5 BATHROOMS  IS A VERY COMFORTABLE HOME FOR 2 RETIRED PEOPLE--  OH... BUT THEY HAVE THE ROOM IF TEH GRANDCHILDREN COME TO VISIT OVER CHRISTMAS... 
IN THE MEANTIME-----WHAT THEY SOPEND ON HEAT AND AIRCONDITIONING WOULD PUT THOS E GRAND KIDS THRU COLLEGE.

 I HAVE MADE A FEW RECORDS IN MY LIFE--- ( CURRENTLY TEH 48 HOUR FUNDREAISER !! FOR WHICH I THANK YOU ALL) --  MAYBE CONSOLIDATED LIVING-- WOULD BE ANOTHER---

IN MY PREVIOUS LIFE-- I HAD A HOUSE BURN TO THE GROUND ONE NEW YEARS EVE.  I MANAGED TO GET A VERY INEXPENSIVE HOUSE TRAILER DELIVERED VERY PROMPTLY-- AND IN THAT -- FOR  MANY MANY MONTHS LIVED--ONE BED RIDDEN HUSBAND ( BACK SURGERY)-- 2 SMALL CHILDREN WITH ELECTRIC CARS-  A LOVELY BASSETT HOUND  "POLLY" WITH HER 12 PUPS- THE RESULT OF A  QUICK TRYST WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD BLACK LAB-   THE KITCHEN TABLE  HAD TO BE MOVED  INTO TH EMIDDLE TO PROVIDE A U TURN FOR THE ELECTRIC CARS- THE OTHER END OF THE  LINE WAS A 3 POINT TURN  in and OUT OF THE BATHROOM.  THE BARN HAD 14 HORSES WHO NEEDED to be watered with truckloads of water... and i ran a magazine delivery business "teh Want Advertiser"   every tuesday.THE WORST PROBLEM WE HAD WAS THAT  A BUNCH OF PEOPLE CAME TO HAVE A OPARTY AND WENT  TO  PARTY WITH MY HUSBAND WHO WAS IN TEH BACK "MASTER BEDROOM"  AND THE FRONT OF THE TRAILER CAME OFF THE GROUND.  we did survive  
FINALLY SPRING CAME AND POLLY WITH HER 12 BLACK BASSEETT HOUNDS WERE FREE TO ROAM.. LIKE A HERD OF TURTLES -- I THINK WE KEPT MOST OF THEM.

 so i have had practice  for my current consolidation of one room and a bath....  with private hair dryer--  the summer version is a small fan and a water spraying device for personal airconditioning;  evaporation being a cooling process. i know i am  extreme.y fortunate to have that---- proving once again that warm and dry  is really all that is necessary.
*****
 board of directore meeting went very well-- all theway thru to the purple ice cream  for camera mark and i  for desert--  tehy did some talkig about  board things, like  by laws  and arguedd about who seconded what and why-- 
 i have to admit   this board is 180 degrees from the various "boards" that have fulfilled teh requirement over the past 15 years...  in teh past it was any 6 people who wanted a meal at tehe country club- who could sign their names to the fact that they had been there.  this board does have some " substance"  for which i am grateful. 
it is nice on ocassion  to have them behind me for opinions--- which they are happy to share... they do have opinions-- which for th e most part i am obliged to honor.  i am aware of situatios where boards have "removed"  teh president- and i wold hate to have them stuff me in my one room. 
***
we did discuss some of teh things that we can accomplish with the new funding-- i mentioned the garagee door- and thy quickly worried that mentioning it in the dialy doggie would encourage our camera people to starrt send ing garage doors-- like sox, or bird cages..  it could get awkward..

but we would survive !! actually... there are 2 doors we should repalce...  but i never said that.

pups --- millie and teri--- are doing fine--  love those  names for the pups landing on veterans day... that is the last time i will evr buy 4 month old  dane pups from europe !!  bud and i are getting too old to stuff them in hte door---  i was not prepared for the  wiggle  weight as related to my car d0oor.  we had to have judy already inteh back to keep teh collapsed kennel on it's side...  luckily the pups were already leash trained.. but heafty is the word.


now that pam has slept  overnight on the floor  with them.. they think she is pretty special too.  we will get them to kennel 10 as soon as we can---  not sure about today
they will have to be trained to go thruthe in/out door-- which will have to be someoen smaller than me on their hands and knees for a bitl;  to get them used to the door flap to get in out of thecold.

that id maybe today's project--- that would be on camera... puppy hill or indoor puppy room camera.
****
 if i was desiging teh us custons process....   i would buy anotehr rubberr date stamp -- and maybe a card table with chair-- and have a government "stamper"  at the  cargo side of teh airport where stuff lands that needs a stamp-- because even after you pay teh ?landing?  $80 fee-- must be money order or computer--- not by cash or check- you then have to go elsewhere to get this stamp/ with date.  
 *******
we have our own bermuda triangle--- COVERED IN OUR BRAND OF   BLACK ICE WHICH  IS YELLOW.-
of all teh possible things aroung=d here on which  to possibly spend our $200,000 new source of money.... about the  last thing anyone would guess is... a garage door.-- BECAUSE________we need a people door before soneone gets hurt.
(you all say you like to have all the details)  here goes..... 

 if you try and walk/drive or crawl  up the walk to our front door--- which is in teh back of the house....  there is a 20 foot section where the hot top is at a very slightly tilted angle--  from wet leaves to black ice- not only do people fall, but golf carts  tractors to my toyota can get going sideways-- thank heavens teh vehicles are stopped  by a tree which shows many scars.----  for people  i have strung lovely cotton rope-but it is not a real solution.

it can be avoided  by walking under our  doggie deck-- where our doggies do doggie things- and teh space between the floor boards allows most of those doggie things to drip below..which in the winter gives us "black ice"... THAT'S yellow.  
or you can go thru "the garage"  -- ancient overhead elect door which never worked well 30 years ago.  we need a people door there WHERE YOU CAN WIND YOU WAY PAST THINGS LIKE A CARRIAGE JANINE BOUGHT AFTER TOO MUCH TO DRINK AT A COCKTAIL PARTY- MEGANS WALL OVEN -   2NEW CARTONS OF  TOILETS,  4  NEW TIRES THAT DO NOT FIT ANY VEHICLE WE OWN-- NORMAL THINGS

HAVING A PEOPLE DOOR WOULD MEAN STAFF COULD GET TO WORK ON MUCH SAFER FOOTING than having to navigate that bermuda triangle..   EVEN IF THEY HAVE  TO SLITHER PAST THE  handy LAUNDRY CHUTE WHICH TAKES UP HALF TEH  STAIRS TO THE FIRST FLOOR...

- MAYBE SOME OF YOU CAmera people  CAN help research this??? I NEED AN ELECTRIC DOOR ITH A PEOPLE DOOR IN IT-- AND I DON'T KNOW IF THAT IS POSSIBLE...
teh people door would be used 273 timesd a day-- the full door -- maybe once every saint swithens day.

if you can find a 4 foot door ---  let me know...... if  i can get teh carriage out , i  might never need a full door.  

please don't start sending me doors until we get the detials dowm pat.... i remember teh fun project of  59 bird houses everyojne so  generously  sent./.

QUICK EXPLIANTION--- TO BRING THE NEW COMMERS UP TO SNUFF -- THE DAILY DOGGIE IS A BLOG I HAVE WRITTEN FOR 15? YEARS -  TO KEEP ALL THE VOLUNTEERS ON TEH SAME PAGE....IT IS TWO THINGS-- MOSTLY THE  PROPOSED ACTIVITIES FOR TEH DAY--  THE HISTORY OF WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDA Y--  AND WHATEVER ELSE IS ON MY MIND AT 7AM... SOMETIMES IT IS  CLEARLY EVIDENT THERE IS NOT MUCH ON MY MIND AT 7AM-- AND THOSE DAILY DOGGIES SHOULD BE QUICKLY DELETED. 
BETWEEN MY CREATIVE SPELLING ,  CONSTANT TYPOS,  And defective little finger on my left haND WHICH  OFTEN HITS TEH  CApslock when i aM AIMING AT THE "A" KEY ---- IT'S DIFFICULTY  HAS BEEN COMPARED TOTHE NY TIMES CROSSWORD PUZZLE -  I TRY AND FIX SOME REALLY BAD ONES... I AM WAY BEYOD SPELP; CHECK/
it is sent out by constant contaCT BECAUSE AOL WILL NOT SEND OUT THE =NUMBER OF EMAILS IN MY FILES-- THIS ALSO MEANS THEY WILL  UNSUBSCRIBE ANYONE- DIRECTIONS AT TEH BOTTOM SOMEWHERE.
YOU GET THE FArm news--- good--baD--- OR INDIFFERENT-- PLEASE REALIZE THAT  TEH BEST LAID PLANS OF MICE OR MEN GET CAUGHT SOMEWHERE BETWEEN FATHER TIME AND MOTHER NATURE.
TODAY---
GET CALiF VISITORS TO TEH SHUTTLE BY 5:00AM- i already did that

it hqs left germany 2 minutes ago and you can track the plane as it crosses "the pond."   
For those not familiar with the website, there is a dotted line displayed on the live flight screen showing the flight path from Germany to Boston. Several minutes before takeoff, an icon of a plane will appear on that screen, which will move along the dotted line as the plane flies, showing where the plane actually is in the sky. :)

  we should be here for mail call at 5PM( newcommers-- mail call is another  speciality of crazy acres-- it is live... big time  at 5pm.  ) 

thank you to the stream of charlie, courtney. camera people  and donors for helping us thank veterans with different  kinds of help... including  donating service dogs to them./

we are off and running  strong on the Charlie Challange  of  "Standing Ovation  Sunday"    which you may  get to off our web by clicking the donate-   i can not begin to tell Charlie  the difference he has made  in teh past 24 hours....  i promise to spend it wisely- and   the serious pressure is off...     while  the rest of teh cp's maintain a very much smaller fun fund for "things not necessary but interesting." 

there are sooo many things in my head-- certainly  this fundraiser gets top billing--  i think i have it straight--- and at 6:30 am we are up to $10,000- i think mostly because we are a 24 hour website with people around the world.. literally... in other time zones...  so that is priority.

however.... even briefly, this is complicated...

before all the fundraiseing started, i decided to buy 2 pups from germany-- based on a week's study of teh details -- mostly that the mother is the imaage of chaos... leaving goldie out of it...  2 available pups-- from germany.
i got them paid for with minimal confusion-- and tehn pet air needed payment information... vineet-- nice man-- worked with him before- just needed a charge card number-- so i gave him this paypal debit card i now carry-- sounded wonderful..... except......  I REMEMBERED....  last tiem i did this... the bank stopped payment to czech paypal for the shipment of sir richard-- and that got messy  but we made it.-  so i tried to call someone---  the presure was on  because the banks were not open here yet-- and were about to close in germany   anyone -- anywhere--  i needed to tell someone tehre is a charge of $2000 coming from germany which is legitimate-- 

firstly  it was not clear whetheer this debit card was attached to a bank account...( my ebay account with very little money  money in it) -- so i tried to transfer $2000 TO PAYPAL BALANCE -- WELL AFTER PUSHING THE BUTTON... IT SAID IT MIGHT TAKE 3 TO 4 BUSINESS DAYS-- PUPS FLYING ON MONDAY-- SO I TRANSFERRED MONEY INTO THE BANK  TO COVER TEH 2000 JUST IN CASE IT FLIPPED TO THAT  "SOURCE"  

the bank person-- nice woman from india jst coudn not quite get what i was trying to do- SHE KEPT THINKING I WAS TRYING TO STOP PAYMENT... -- AS I AM TRYING TO EXPLAIN  IN ENGLISH, CHAOS DECIDED TO BARK AT LINDA COMING UP THE WALK -- SO I YELLED "WILL YOU SHUT UP"  AT WHICH POINT THE nice WOMAN FROM INDIA HUNG UP AND I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO CONTAct anyone since...

we hope Vineet gets paid and gets the pups on the plane at 1am our time - because monday is a bank holiday here and i will never be able to straighten it all out at  1:02 am on monday.

so let us hope.
****
we have some interesting people here from bergin university  who are in a course in training service dogs..  i wonder why/ how  bonnie bergin got to be a university-- she/ they certainly know alot of  big words for things we do - but have  a very significant approach===  to prove anything , we really need to try and raise a litter of labs as we do the danes  then see if there are some changes to consider.  i have donated dogs to other training facilities, but the other places have not been made aware of how we handle danes.... it is different.
----
now to attack   "standing ovation sunday"  

have at it guys !!!

FRIDAY MORNING LOOMS HEAVILY OVER MY HEAD......   FIRSTLY TEH MATCHING FUNDS PROJECT---  EXPLORE SAID THEY WOULD POST THE DETAILS ON OUR HOUSE CAMERA WEB ON FRIDAY MORNIG.---   - BY US, THAT IS NOON- SO THE  DETAILS OF THE  OFFER TO MATCH FUNDS WILL APPARENTLY BE PUT ON OUR WEB OF MAIN HOUSE CAMERA  ABOUT NOONISH???-- IT  WILL BE ACTIVE , I ThINK FOR 4 DAYS-- AND I AM TOLD THEY WILL MATCH $50,000 -- SO GET READY !!!!  APPARENTLY ONLINE.. 

AND THEN THE  2 PUPS FROM GERMANY-- I GOT THE EMAIL THAT SAID BARBARA RECIEVED TEH PAYMENT-- AND A NOTE FROM VINEET THAT WE COULD SOLVE THE PAYMENT FOR TEH AIRFARE ON FRIDAY MORNING.. WHICH AT 6:00AM  HERE IT IS MID AFTERNOON IN GERMANY AND ALL I HAVE IS TEH FOLLOWING 

Hello Together,

The flight for the puppies is booked as follow.
Lufthansa LH  422/ 11.11 to  BOS

AirWayBillNr/ Ticketnummer.: 020-59394285

Arrival: 13:10 p.m. Local time on the 11.11.2019

Thanks
Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
Best regards,   
Vineet

 I GET SOOOO WORRIED....
IT IS NO LONGER FRIDAY MORNING THERE... SO NOW I NEED TO GET A BUNCH OF FINANCES TO VINEET IN TEH NEXT FEW HOURS- AND TEH BANKS ARE NOT OPEN YET  HERE.AND NEARLY CLOSED THERE.
PAYPAL IS LOOKING BETTER AND BETTER...-- SO YESTERDAY I DID TRANSFER FUNDS TO MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT-- SO ANY OF THIS INTERNET STUFF IS NOT CONNECTED TO SDP'S MAIN ACCOUNT.
***
JUST SO YOU KNOW....  THESE PUPS ARE GETTING BIG-- SO I DON'T KNOW IF ONE CRATE OR TWO.. WHAT I DO KNOW IS IF WE TRY AND SHIP A FULL SIZE DANE  (  LIKE 150 POUNDS)   THEY NEED A REALLY BIG CRATE-- AND TEHN IT DOES NOT FIT IN THE DOOR OF MOST AIRPLAINES AND WE WOULD HAVE TO SHIP FREIGHT IN A PLANE DESIGNED  FOR BIG STUFF...-- SINCE THEY ARE BOOKED ON A REGULAR LUFTHANSA FLIGHT, IT MAY MEAN THEY ARE YET SMALL ENOUGH TO BE IN ONE CRATE THAT FITS IN THE DOOR OF THE PLANE...  OUR SKY CRATES ARE NUMBERED 300 400 500-- BUT IN MY SHIPPING EXPERIENCE I HAVE KNOWN A 700 CRATE  WHICH LAST I KNEW YOU COUlD NOT BUY IN THE USA.

***
RABBIT  - MICHALLA AND TEH ROTARY CLUB'S $20,000 PARTY HAPPENED LAST NIGHT-- JUDY AND I -- BOTH  IN BEGININGS OF SOME NOSE THROAT JOINT AILMENT MADE IT TO THE DINNER-  MICHALA SPOKE WELL--   RABBIT BEHAVED-- AS DID BENTLEY- THEY HANDED ME A CHECK FOR $20K ALONG WITH AN AWARD FOR DOING SOMETING. WE SAT At "the ' table- which included the wife of teh govenor- who was a very interesting and into a fundraiser for kids.  we could have some overlapping there..  she talked of teh thousands of kids every year who have to be "removed" and placed in foster care for a variety of reasons... she runs a 501 c 3 charity who  gets teh kids into an easier transition  than getting stuffed in the back of a cruiser.

we can not offer help for thousands... but i said we did have puppy hill, fresh air and  puppies if she saw where it could be useful.
so i stuffed teh $20,000 check in my bra-- and  judy and i left.
*
we did get there  AFTER NEARLY RUNNING OFF THE ROAD IN THE POURING RAIN... ONCOMING HEADLIGHTS ,, AND A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT DEFROSTING WINDSCREENS-- WE SWAPPED DRIVERS AND SHE DROVE WHILE I DIDDLED WITH TEH BUTTONS- AND ALL OF A SUDDEN WE COULD SEE ALOT BETTER...- I DID CONSIDER COMING HOME ON A HIGHWAY INSTEAD OF TEH DIRECT ROUTE, BUT WITH A PROPERLY FUNCTIONING CAR AND MINUS 5PM TRAFFIC-- WE TOOK THE USUAL SHORTCT.   
***
NOW -- THE  MAIL CALL HAT--- I THANK ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE BOUGHT EXTRA BRICKS IF I WEAR THAT HAT AT MAIL CALL--  APPARENTLY SOMEONE WENT BACK THRU ALL THE COMMENTS AND COULD NOT FIND ANY HAT REQUESTS.. WHAT A  PITY !   THE PEOPLE WHO OFFERED TEH $300 PER MONTH  SENT ME AN EMAIL AND DID NOT SAY I HAD TO PUBLICIZE THE FACT...

PLEASE REMEMBER-- YOU DO NOT KNOW ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING THAT GOES ON AROUND HERE.
SOME THINGS I JUST DO NOT GET AROUND TO DISCUSSING AT LEGNTH-- OR SEE NO NEED TO -- 

 THANKFULLY I DO COUNT ON ALL OF YOU AS EXTERNAL MEMORY DEVICES.... IN A LOT OF CASES...
***
now let us pray we get this fundraiser  off the ground for it's 4 day run toward  the $50,000 to be matched???

2 PUPS IN GERMANY SHOULD BE PAID FOR BY WIRE THIS MORNING.... AND ARE SET TO ARRIVE MONDAY 11TH-- I WILL GIVE Y OU THE FLIGHT NUMBERS SOON  SO WE CAN ALL WATCH FLIGHT CHECKER AS THEY CROSS TEH POND...
-- WITH ALL YOU CP'S-- CAN SOMEONE RESEARCH THIS TRANSFER OF MONEY.... AND FIND OUTR WHAT IS TEH CHEAPEST WAY TO PAY FOR SOMETHING IN EUROPE..  HAVING BLOWN  UP AT TEH MANAGER IN MY USUAL BANK FOR JUST NOT HAVING THE CLARITY  I INSISTED ON. I WENT TO BANK #2 AND SAVED $112- AND I STILL DO NOT KNOW HOW/WHY
AND I AM NOT SURE PAY PAL WOULD BE CHEAPER-- THIS NEEDS SOME SERIOUS ATTENTION.- IT APPARENTLY HAS TO DO WITH WHEN YOU CONVERT TO EUROS AND TEHN HOW PAYPAL GETS THEIR MONEY-- AND ARE TEHY A FRIEND OR A BUSIESS--- OR SOMETHIGN STRANGE.

TEH PLAN IS TO  GIVE THEM SOME HOUSE TIME AND THEN PUT THEM IN KENNEL 10 SO WE CAN WATCH THEM.
*****
i am going to get in trouble for this thought.

BRYAN CAME AND DID THE RABIES SHOTS AND SAID HE WOULD USE OUR NAME LIBERALLY AT THAT NEW "?CLINIC? " AT THE DEVELOPING TECH SCHOOL NEARBY. HE DOES NOT DO "SMALL ANIMAL SURGERY---AND WE GOT INTO  WHY  NOT?? 

HE USED TO-- BUT THE WHOLE THING HAS GOT RIDICULOUS-- WE TALKED ABOUT DR.  CONNIE THIBEAULT, CONNIE WAS VET FOR ALOT OF TEH "BIG NAMED" PEOPLE- AND I SPENT TIME  WITH HIM DISCUSSING THE WAY OF THE WORLD - ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS  I STOOD AROUND WHILE HE OPERATED ON A DOG OR CAT-- ON A BENCH IN TEH YARD---I WOULD RUN BACK TO HIS SINK FULL OF INSTRUMENTS TO RINSE OFF WHATEVER HE NEEDED  OR READJUST  TEH "CONE"  PROVIDING THE ANESTHESIA--  I THINK EITHER--  I NEVER HEARD OF HIM LOOSING ANY ANIMAL IN SURGERY- -- OR BLOWING UP A BUILDING WITH  TEH VARIOUS EXPLOSIVE GASSES-
 I WOULD   HAVE HEARD ABOUT ANY  SURGICAL ACCIDENT IF HE HAD ANY---  I KNEW HIM - AND ABOUT HIM FOR YEARS-... I KNEW ALOT OF HIS FAMILY TOO..
 THAT SINK FULL OF HEMOSTATS AND SYRINGES WAS HIS STOCK IN TRADE.   

BRYAN KNEW HIM TOO- AND WE GOT INTO --WHY HE WOULD NO LONGER DO SMALL ANIMALS BECAUSE OF THE VET ASSOC REGULATIONS--  BRYAN SAID HE NEVER WENT TO TEH EXTREME OF CONNIE AND HIS BENCH IN TH E YARD... BUT BRYAn   HAD NEVER LOST AN ANIMAL DUE TO  WHAT HE MUST NOW SPEND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ON EQUIPMENT TO PREVENT..

I HAVE WATCHED GEORGE-- WITH GLOVES  MASK AND GOWN, EKG MACHINE.. OXYGEN MONITOR --and thought of connie.... 

 I HAVE ALSO BEEN TOLD THAT DR POL HAD A RUN IN WITH TEH VET ASSOC. ABOUT HIS SURGICAL PROCEEDURES--- WHICH IS WHY AT TEH BEGINNING OF THE SHOW THERE IS A STATEMENT ABOUT  EDITING FOR TV-- NOT SHOWING ALL THE DETAILS  ETC...

TO GET DOWN TO MY LEVEL...  IF YOU ARE A PERSON WORKING AT TEH MINIMUM WAGE OF $12 AN HOUR AND YOU ADOPT A PUPPY FROM A SHELTER.. THEN YOU GO TO THE VET TO GETIT SPAYED, And teh bill is AROUND $500 - you WILL  haVE TO WORK OVER 40 HOURS-- TO PAY FOR THAT SURGERY--

 SO YOU SKIP THAT AND JUST GET A  RABIES SHOT-  WHICH--( I CALLED AROUND)  CAN VARY FROM $30 ( TEH BARGAIN PLACES) OR MORE  NORMALLY $70  AND YOU WILL BE TOLD THT THEY MUST   DO A PHYSICAL EXAM FOR $50 THEN THE SHOT $20.  is that true????  wellllll......

 I WILL LOOK THIS UP WHEN I HAVE TIME...- THE RABIES SHOT MUST BE GIVEN BY A VET -- I KNOW THAT --   MEDICALLY IT COULD BE GIVEN BY ANYONE-- BUT  WOULD HAVE NO LEGAL STATUS IF SOMEONE GOT BITTEN.
TO HAVE A VET GIVE IT MEANS IT WAS DONE.  TEH DOCTOR SIGNS THERI NAME- AND LICENSE -  TO THat fact.
in the process  the doctor can visually check to be sure the dog does not already have rabies.AND LOOKS BASICALLY HEALTHY .  it is... in my opinion... the rule that got stretched to say teh dr must do a physical exam to be sure the dog is healthy-- so that is billed separately for $50-- 
i have watched these physical exams- pull up a gum, listen to the heart for 4 seconds stand up and saY "THAT IS $50 PLEASE"  IT IS NOT-- WHAT SHOULD BBE CALLED A PHYSICAL EXAM FOR $50. AND IS SO QUICK THAT IT  WOULD NEVER DISCOVER ANYTHING  I AM NOT ABLE TO SEE MYSELF.

I CALLED AROUND WITHIN TH EPAST YEAR- AND WAS FASCINATED TOTHE RESPONSE ABOUT HE PHYSICAL EXAM- USUALLY GIVEN BY THE RECEPTIONEST---"WE HAVE TO BE SURE THE DOG IS HEALTHY BEFORE OUR DOCTORS CAN GIVE A RABIES SHOT AND TEH PHYSICAL EXAM IS $50." 
BACK TO THE POOR  $12/HOUR PERSON WITH THE NEW RESCUED PUPPY.. THEY WILL HAVE TO WORK  6 HOURS- JUST TO GET A RABIES SHOT.
 HEAVEN FORBID  THE PET HAS A BROKEN TOENAIL-

TOO OFTEN I HEAR "I CAN'T AFFORD A DOG/CAT"  and unless you make $50 an hour.... that is true. 
i also don't think i ever took my kids for a yearly physical- and no one ever offered to do a physical on tehm before tehy got any shot ( or polio drink) 
nobody ever worries about not being able to afford kids.....

just another downward spiral of "the business mind" taking over.


Hi carlene!  We wanted to send you a harry update.  He is as fun happy and active as ever. He is dealing with a minor foot issue that we have been on top of for a few mths now but nothing is keeping him down. He is happy for this cooler weather as it makes zoomies much more comfortable during the day. He is loving life and being as sweet and as helpful as can be! Here are a few picture. - Beth

how can i forget to write teh dd?? 
LET ME COUNT THE WAYS.....
but the biggest reason is-- whether anyone wants to acknowledge it or not... we are very short of puppies... so i was looking around germany-   and did not find a blue... yet... but i did find 2 females "with color" and wonderful pedigrees and health records...-- enough color  so i can tell them apart-- i really don't want any more  ,mostly black pups...  if i can get the paperwork done  before friday, tehy will arrive mondya at logan airport from frNKFURT.  THESE ARE BEING PURCHASED BY AND OWNED BY SDP-- WHICH IS ALL OF YOU ---  THEY ALREADY HAVE NAMES-- AND THEIR PARENTS ARE "YING" AND "YANG"  AND YING  LOOKS  EXACTLY LIKE CHAOS... BOTH HAVE RESPECTABLE HEALTH RECORDS... BACK 3 GENERATIONS JUST  AN  OCCASIONAL 1 FOR ELBOWS AND  AN OCASSIONAL B FOR HIPS OTHER HEART EYES ETC OK...   IT IS A GAMBLE-- BUT THERE IS ALOT MORE TO GO ON THAN TRYING TO BUY  AN AKC REG- BESIDES I GO TO THE AIRPORT AND PICK UP TEH DOG -- AND IT'S PAPERS- AND IT IS OURS.  NO COMPLICATED HALF OR LIMITED  OWNERSHIP .--

AND THEN---- BRYAN IS DUE HERE FOR RABIES SHOTS AT NOON- AND I REALLY NEED TO TALK WITH HIM WHILE HE IS HERE. SOOOOOO

MEGAN AND JUDY WILL BE ON THEIR OWN AT THE VET DAY AT SALEM COLLEGE..  WE WERE TOSPEAK  AT 1PM
 BETWEEN THE 2 OF THEM THEY OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO  TALK ENOUGH TO PROMPT TEH AUDIENCE TO ASK QUESTIONS-- AND TEHY WILL BE HOME FREE.  BESIDES EVERYONE JUST WANTS TO SEE THE DOGS.

PAM EXPLAINS TO ME -- EVERYONE HAS COMPUTER PROBLEMS, I SHOULD JUST ACCEPT IT. I ACTUALLY THINK COMPUTERS ARE  A  FIENDISH PLAN OF TEH MARITAN SPIES WHO LANDED IN AREA 51 LONG AGO IN AN EFFORT TO TAKE OVER THE PLANET-  BUT AFTER STUDYING THE POPULATION, THEY LEFT- LEAVING A HALF BAKED "SYSTEM" AS PUNISHMENT FOR OUR NOT OBEYING THE NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS.

I REMEMBER...  BACK WHEN COMPUTERS WERE THE SIZE OF MY HOUSE AND WE WORE HAIR NETS AND SLIPPERS-- THE FIRST PROGRAM I WROTE-- IN "FORTRAN" IN PUNCH CARDS--- THIS BIG FANCY COMPUTER ( AT MIT)  PRINTED MY NAME OUT 25 TIMES INSTEAD OF DOING WHATEVER IT WAS SUPPOSED TO DO.
I WAS MISSING A COMMA SOMEWHERE-  I SHUDA QUIT THEN.
 REAL LIFE AND REAL PEOPLE  MAKE ALLOWENCES FOR THE OCASIONAL TYPO AND MIS SPELLING
AS YOU READ THIS-- YOU M,AKE ADJUSTMENTS FOR THE FACT THAT MY TYPING, ENGLISH, OR SPELLING IS ANYTHING BUT PERFECT.  AND YOU GO ON.
NOT SO WITH COMPUTERS    . ONE LOUSY TYPO IN A PASSWORD- AND  THIS UNFORGIVING MONSTER WITH WHICH I MUST DEAL DAILY JUST GRINS AT ME WITH A SERIES OF 
WRONG PASSWORD
DID YOU FORGET YOUR PASSWORD?.. 
shame on you 
TRY ANOTHER
SORRY.
NO NOT THAT ONE
you used that one.
 YOU MUST HAVE 8 CHARActors\
not those characters
where did you grow up?
whaddia mean  "no where yet?"

meatcutter steve had a wonderful you- tube he was to send me-- it must have been  monty python with the new computer-.. simplty a book  to which they applied computer terms as they flipped pages...- i laughed long and hard-- still laughing- as they close a file and then can not get it open...and  i am still waiting for steve to send me the link.. does anyone else know the skit ???  it was a good one.
**********
which brings me to the ... just the faCTS--  FROM THE OLD TV SHOW-- JUST TEH FACTS.  I HAVE A LARGE "BEEF" GOING.  THE INTERPRETATION OF A FACT IS A TERRIBEL RUMOR GENERATOR AROUND HERE.. 
 TEH CLASSIC ONE IS HOODSIE- WITH A RUNNY  EYE-  "HOODSIE HAS A PROBLEM WITH IS EYE,- WHITE DOGS DO YOU KNOW"  SO HOODSIEIS RUMORED TO BE  BLIND AND DEAF...  IS GIVEN AWAY-- AND I INSISTED HE BE PROMPTLY RETURNED - TOOK HIM tO THE CANINE EYE DOCTOR - HE HAD A TYOPICAL EYE INFECTION-- BUT HE WAS NEARLY GIVEN AWAY. BEAUSE SOMEONE KNEW ONE SMALL FACT ABOUT WHITE DOGS...
ME---- "THE ELECTRICITY  IS OUT BECAUSE WE ARE THE LAST ONES ON TEH LINE"-- i said that  and sat around in teh dark for a couple hours-- decided to call my pRENTS IN NEW YORK FOR LACK OF ANYTHING BETTER TO DO.. ONLY TO FIND THEY WERE OUT OF ELECTRICITY TOO.  THE ENTIRE NORTH EAST WAS DARK.. I KNEW -- WE WERE AT TEH END OF THE IPSWICH LINE-- AND ASSUMED...

SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE READ  SENTANCES ( NOT EVEN ENTIRE  TRAINING BOOKS) AND TEHY LEARN A FEW BUZZ WORDS. SOCIALIZING IS A BIG ONE.  "I AM GALD TO SEE YOU TAKE SIZZLE AND BENTLEY IN THE CAR  IT WILL HELP WITH THEIR SOCIALIZATION"--

YESTERDAY
"TEH GOAT AND BLUEBERRY GOT OUT OF THE NEW PEN-- YOU REALLY SHOULD ASK SOMEONE TO WALK TEH FENCE AND SEE IF THERE IS ANY OPENING "   
 AND  TEH BAD ONE...   LAST NIGHT- I WATCHED THE NEW PUPS HAVING BOWEL MOVEMENTS-- AND IT WAS CLEAR MUCUS-  I WAS NOT TOLD BECAUSE " PUPS ALWAYS HAVE LOOSE WIERD STOOLS"  NOT TRUE-- SO I STARTED ASKING AROUND-- BECAUSE OF TEH SHIFTING PERSONELL NO ONE PERSON MADE NOTE OF IT.. AND I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANYONE WHO HAS SEEN A "NORMAL"  STOOL OUT OF THIS LITTER.... EVER....   TEH PUPS LOOK HEALTHY  BUT THOSE STOOLS SURE DON'T AND IF THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN RIGHT , DO WE HAVE A BIGGER PROBLEM? 

THERE YOU HAVE IT... THAT IS MY BIGGEST  WORRY OF THE DAY... 
 SHlT OF ONE KIND OR ANOTHER IS A BIG DEAL AROUND  HERE.

re:  YOUNG MALE HUMANS   AND TEH BUILDING OF STONE WALLS.... IN THE PAST WEEK WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH  SEVERAL
YOUNG MALE HUMANS IN NEED OF TEH FRESTH AIR AND EXERCISE THAT I REFERRED TO-  SEVERAL SENT BY TEH DIST ATTNY-- BUT 2  WERE BROUGHT BY THEIR FATHERS TO WORK-- AS IN *W*O*R*K*   AS IN LIFT CARRY  PUSH AND SHOVE  FOR A REALITY CHECK ON CELL PHONE USE. THAT IS WHY WE NOW HAVE = ---OR AT LEAST HAD AS OF YESTERDAY= ---WALKWAYS DEVOID OF LEAVES--- TEH LEAF DROP AROUND HERE IS A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM AS   2 OR 3 LEAVES  CAN COVER A PILE OF SIMILAR BROWN MATERIAL WHICH HAS A SPECIFIC ODORIFEROUS  QUALITY IF APPLIED TO SNEAKERS AND SHOES.-  THE WALKWAYS WERE CLEAR YESTERDAY  BUT A BIG WIND CAN COVER ALOT OF SHlT- AS WE ALL KNOW FROM POLITICS.

 THAT IS A LOWER CASE "L" IN THE WORD SHlT--JUST TO FOOL COMPUTERS WHICH ARE TOO PURITANICAL.

TO CONTINUE-- WITH TEH PAST TENSE OF SHlT-- TODAY IS SHATUPON SUNDAY
THANK YOU ALL FOR TEH SELL OUT OF TEH 2100 "CHICKEN BRICKS" ---  I HAVE OPENED TEH FLYING PIURPLE EGG DIVISION...  

 I NEED TO EXPLAIN ALL THIS TO  THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND....  AND THERE ARE A FEW NEW PEOPLE- THANK HEAVENS.... ....  OUR PAYROLL IS 100% DEPENDENT  ON TEH  SALE OF TEH 2100 CHICKEN BRICKS ( NUMBERS) monthly -- BY CLICKING ON THE DONATE AND CHICKEN ON OUR WEB YOU MAY "BUY " ONE OF TEH 2100  NUMBERS FOR $10  AND ATTACH YOUR NAME AND A PHOTO TO THE WALL OF NUMBERS- IF THAT IS TOO CONFUSING SEND A $10 CHECK TO M AIL CALL AND  WE WILL GIVE YOU A "QUICK PICK"  NUMBER. 
ONCE A MONTH- ON TEH FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH ( TODAY)   WE TAKE ALL THOSE NUMBERS AND PUT THEM ON A PIECE OF VINYL FLOORING, ON A TABLE , WHICH IS  MARKED IN 4" SQUARES-- AT 3PM WE SET OUT 3 CHICKENS ON THAT NUMBERED TABLE AND THE FIRST PILE OF POO THAT Appears from the chickens marks teh number of teh person who is to become a permanant member of"teh shatupon society of ipswich"   an extremely exclusive organization  - and i give them a  formal"certificate " signed by me+ plus a gift ck .

YOU MAY ASK.... WHAT HAPPENS IF I THE POO IS PLACED ON TEH LINE?   - WELL ... WE ARE PREPARED.
WE DO HAVE A VERY ACCURATE SCIENTIFIC BALANCE SCALE AVAILABLE-- CAREFULLY PREPARED WITH 4 PAPER CUPS AND  TOILET PAPER TO BALANCE.. SO WITH CAREFUL USE OF 2 PUTTY KNIVES I CAN DETERMINE WHICH PILE... .BY WEIGHT... IS TEH WINNER.
THE OTHER RULE IS - AS JUDGE, I GET TO MAKE UP ANY RULES AS NECESSARY.

YOU MAY ASK -- WHY ONLY 2100 NUMBERS IF THEY HAVE SOLD OUT FOR 5 YEARS?  TEH SELLING OF 2100 IS A GOAL FOR THE COMMUNITY TO TRY AND REACH- AND IT IS WHAt we need for the payroll.  not wanting to leave anyopne out, -- after those 2100 numbers are sold i attach teh flying purple egg division of another few purple numbers--  the winner of which is determined by someone lofting a 1/2 cooked egg on to the table and whichever purple number is closest tothe yolk is teh purple winner... both of those winners also get a personal check from me  as a gift---  teh 2100 winner gets a bigger gift thant the purple egg winner---  but both are a better deal than the national lottery.. and it pays our payroll-- and produces a service dog or twol.

... have at it !!  --- now that you  all know.  and get your friends  to buy a brick   --- if they have $10 to donate--- 
again .. not wanting to leave anyone out- i said if anyone can not afford teh $10, then cut your cereal boxes into 3 x 6 inch pieces for our poo pickers--- and that is how that got going...

from there, we now have small stickers coming  in the mail to be take n to the dismal adult day care centers wher the people ther are often altzeimers patients--- thy have a good time putting those stickers on poopickers to entertain the people who use them....

and whll e judy does that,  janine  is now trying to  get the huge smart tv's running on explore.org cameras... and i sit around with 2 big dogs-- and sometimes wanda  teh JR 

on we go.

hi  carlene

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS  SHOULD NOT BE REQUIRED TO MEMORIZE "IF" BY RUDYARD KIPLING... ESPECIALLY THESE KIDS WHO COME HERE FROM TEH DIST ATTNY GENERAL'S OFFICE WHO HAVE MADE SOME REALLY STUPID MISTAKE... THERE ARE SOME BEAUTIFUL ONE LINERS IN TEH POEM-- "IF YOU CAN BEAR TO HEAR THE WORDS YOU'VE SPOKEN-- TWISTED BY KNAVES TO MAKE A TRAP FOR FOOLS" 

I LISTENED TO THE ABOVE LINK -- ONCE AGAIN-- I CAN NOT FIND WHETHER TEH  "IF YOU CAN FILL TEH UNFORGIVING MINUTE -- WITH 60 SECONDS WORTH OF DISTANCE RUN"   IS 60 OR 40   SOMETIMES IT IS 40 SECONDS-- I DON'T KNOW WHICH ISTHE ORIGIONWAL-- EITEHR ONE-- THE POINT IS WELL MADE.

CARLENE, 
I DEFINITELY UNDERSTOOD THE DAILY DOGGIE ON FRI WHEN YOU WHERE WRITING ABOUT THE DANES NOT UNDERSTANDING  OR LIKING  “ HUGS”.  WHEN WE STARTED THE THERAPY DOG CLASS WITH TUMBLER, THE  CRITERIA INCLUDED DOGS BEING COMFORTABLE WITH HUGS AND ALSO SHE HAD TO “SIT “ ON COMMAND.  ALTHOUGH SHE BY FAR HAD THE BEST MANNERS IN THE CLASS, THESE TWO THINGS WOULD BE A CHALLENGE. WE HAD FIVE  WEEKS OF CLASS PRACTICING THE EVALUATION TASK AHEAD AND OF COURSE HOMEWORK. 

 WE FIGURED OUT QUICKLY SHE WAS NOT A FAN OF HUGGING AROUND HER NECK SO WE PRACTICED NIGHT NIGHT HUGS EVERY NIGHT AROUND HER MIDDLE AND SLOWLY SHE REALIZED IT WAS OK. AT THE EVALUATION WE EXPLAINED SHE DIDNT LIKE NECK HUGS BUT GRADUALLY TOLERATED BIDY HUGS AND SHE PASSED BECAUSE AS THE ORGANIZATION EMPHASIZES, WE ARE OUR DOGS ADVOCATE  AND HER COMFORT AND ENJOYMENT IS FIRST. SHE LEARNED TO SIT FAST FROM MY TWO LABS.

WE HAVE BEEN VISITING NURSING HOMES AND OFFICES WEEKLY FOR 7 MONTHS AND HAD OUR FIRST MIDDLE SCHOOL VISIT ON FRI.  I WAS CONCERNED WITH THE NOICE LEVEL AND SO MANY KIDS EXCITED TO SEE HER. SHE WAS A HIT ENTERING THE SCHOOL. THE STAFF WERE SO IMPRESSED WITH HER CALMNESS AND GENTLENESS.  SHE WAS AWESOME AND SEEMED TO ENJOY THE VERY POLITE KIDS.  THE TEACHERS ALLOWED 5 AT A TIME AND IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY.  PRESENTLY SHE GOES FOR “VISITS 2 TIMES A WEEK WITH TWO FACILITIES EACH DAY.  AS LONG AS SHE ENJOYS , WE WILL CONTINUE TO PLAY IT FORWARD. WE INFO PEOPLE ABOUT SERVICE DOG PROJECT EVERY CHANCE WE GET.  THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR ALLOWING ME TO BE HER PERSON.  STILL HARD TO BELIEVE I HAVE HER.
BIG HUGS
KARI AND TENNESSEE TUMBLER
