now this is a good FYI---  all the people with nothint to watch but  grim and game shows  the variety of explore cameras is  wonderful-- go watch the pandas fal out of the trees or our goats pushing  our boy cow around is the world’s largest live-cam nature network, founded by Annenberg Trustee Charlie Annenberg Weingarten. There are more than 150 live cameras showing animals and nature at their most glorious and awe-inspiring. Not only is it a wonderful way to escape stress and find solace in the natural world, but also has educational curriculum for those of you learning from home
i am delighted to have all our staff hanging in there-- we are  taking care of our dogs really well- it is truely a day to day effort-  while we stay 6 feet from each other..  
best case is to park your car somewhere where i can pull up in mine and we can have conversations  window to window..  
got to talk with megan this morning about  to breed or not to breed   ---  what  we do not need is an extra 10 pups next christmas- 
at any rate....
Hello Carlene! 
Hope you are all well with all this chaos going on. I wanted to send you an update for today, Harry’s 8th birthday!  He is a happy lively and lovely boy. I never could have gotten here in life without him. He is the most amazing piece of my whole life.  I treasure every second that we share together. It has been an adventure and we have both learned so much from each other. We challenged each other and I am thankful to have the connection we have now where we just “get” each other. He loves zoomies, playing with his friends especially in the mud and eating salmon. He insists on having his arms rubbed while he falls asleep and loves foot rubs too. 8 years ago a piece of my heart was born on boxford road in Ipswich and I am forever grateful that he found his way to me through sdp. He  fills my life with love and joy every moment. 

3. Do Camels Really Store Water in Their Humps?
A camel can survive seven days without water, but not because they are carrying large reserves inside their humps. They're able to avoid dehydration that would kill most other animals, thanks in large part to oval-shaped red blood cells (vs. the standard circular variety). As far as that hump goes, it's nothing more than a big mound of fat, though a useful one at that — the lump provides camels with the same amount of energy as three weeks of food. If there's any body part that excels at retaining water, the award goes to the camel's kidneys and intestines. These organs are so efficient that a camel's urine comes out thick as syrup and their feces is so dry, it can fuel fires!
