it is a good thing we have a board meeting tomorrow night-- i am not just angry... but fuming.
and what makes me even madder is there is an element which says "just go along"
simply going along with something i see as wrong has never been my style.
and it gets me in alot of trouble.... shoveling shlt against the tide
in an effort to try and keep my mouth shut....., let me try..
when you donate $10 to SDP, i have a responsibility -- i know it is for the care, comfort ,
and training of service dogs to be donated free of charge-- AND HELPING PEOPLE HOWEVER.........
now i recognize that there is a certain xxxxxxx in having fire extinguishers in place
that does make sense and there is some legitimate expense there---
and we have fire extinguishers at every door. what makes me angry is the $3.89 cents'
someone else decided we must have to spend on a red sign explaining
these red cylindars are fire extinguishers and not hair dryers.
tip of the iceberg---
maybe i should let you all vote on some of these kind of expenses- after all it is your money.
but i better wait til saner minds( like the board...... TUESDAY NIGHT.)
moving on -- temproarily--
i decided to become very annoyed with--CALIFORNIA-- I JUST GOT ANOTYUER EMAIL FROM SOMEONE OUT THERE PRETTY DESPARATE FOR A DANE SERVICE DOG-- NOT A VETERAN-- NO FAMILY MEMBERS VETERAN-- JUST LOST JOB TO PARKINSONS- DEPRESSED -- .STILL DRIVING--- STILL VOLUNTEERING-- ALL ELSE PROBABLY GOOD CANDIDATE FOR SDP... SO FAR I HAVE ANSWERED THESE EMAILS WITH I CAN'T----- BUT MAYBE IT IS ME TAKING THE EASY WAY OUT.
WHY DOES NO ONE "OUT THERE" ASK FOR HELP IN SETTING UP A GREAT DANE TRAINING FACILITY-- I WILL DO ALL I CAN TO HELP IN ANY WAY ( EXCEPT [PAPERWORK...)
PLEASE--- ALL YOU CAMERA PEOPLE--- FIND SOMEONE WITH A VERY WELL TRAINED DOG-- AND SUGGEST THAT THEY INVESTIGATE SERVICE DOGS...-THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE "OUT THERE" WHO ARE SUPER TRAINERS- NOT BECAUSE THIER DOG WILL SIT UP AND LOOK CUTE- BUT ARE JUST VERY WELL BEHAVED SENSABLE DOGS.-- THOSE ARE THE TRAINERS WE NEED..
SO THAT IS THE CHALLANGE FIND WAYS TO GET MORE DANES TRAINED IN CALIFORNIA --- OR ANY STATE IN BETWEEN...
HAVE AT IT....
PENNSYLVANIA ---The state dog is the Great Dane, in honor of state founder William Penn's cherished pet.
But that's not necessarily the remarkable part. The real story here is when this choice
for state dog went up for a vote in 1965, legislators literally barked and growled to voice their approval.
