I HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO TODAY....PROJECT OF THE DAY IS TO REDO THE SCHEDULE SO WE CAN GET THE DOGS BACK HERE THIS NEXT WEEEK AND GET ON WITH TRAINING. AND PLACING DOGS. SOUNDS SO EASY... ALLOW ME SOME OF THE DETAILS....
JUST TAKE THIS ONE..... A GREAT DANE WITH AN EMPTY TUMMY GAGS AND THROW S UP... SO IF SOMEONE DOES THE AFTERNOON FEED AT 4PM BY 8AM MORNING FEED HALF OF THEM WOULD BE VOMITING. SO IF I HAVE TRAINERS COME IN AT 7 FOR AN 8 HOUR DAY, THEY WOUOLD HAVE TOI DO THE AFTERNOON FEEDING AT 3 WHICH IS ENTIRELY TOO SOON.
DOG CARE IS PRIMARY CONCERN, CLOSELY FOLLOWED BY THE COV KEEP 10 FEET AWAY WITHN A MINIMUM OF SHARED DOORKNOBS OR FOIOD DISHES. TO THAT END WE ARE GOING TO TRY TO SPLIT THE RESPONSIBIOLITY FOR A GROUP OF DOGS CARE, COMFORT, FOOD, MEDICATIONS.. AND HAV ETHATG GROUP STAY IN ONE SPECIFIC "TERRITORY" THE ONLY GRPI[ OFF CAMERQA WO;; BE EHT NUTT AND DEAGLE BUNCH. .IT DOES GET COMPLICATED... I WILL BE DOING THAT TODAY-- SO IT CAN START MONDAY.
MY OVERALL OPLAN IS TO HAVE ONE PERSON DO A QUICK PICK UP OUTSIDE ONLY....- ANY POO AND GIVE OUT COOKIES BETWEEN 7 AND 8 AM..
THEN TRAINERS/HANDLERS/ WHATEVER COME IN FOR 8 HOUR DAYS 5 DAYS- LAST THING IS FEEDING AT 4PM .. THEN HAVE SOMEONE DO AN INSIDE DOG CHECK AT 7PM CHECKING WATER AND GIVING COOKIES. THAT BECOMES A DOORKNOB PROBLEM SO WE NEED A BOX OF GLOVES IN EACH "TERRITORY"
I ALSO HAVE TO BEWARE OF WHO HAS WHAT DOG EXPOSURE. AND NONE OF THE DOGS ARE TO BE TAKEN OFF THE PROPERTY FOR TRAINING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
THERE ARE SOOO MANY DETAILS.... LIKE... MEDICATIONS???? KEPT IN TH E HOUSE.. WHERE NO ONE IS ALLOWED IN ... EXCEPT HOUSE PEOPLE... SO DONNA MAY BEPUTTING UP LITTLE BAGGIES OF MEDICATIONS AND KEEPINT TRACK OF THAT.
THERE SHOULD BE PLENTY OF CAMERA ACTIVITY FOR ALL THE CP'S TO HELP KEEP TRQACK OF IT ALL.
THINKING IT ALL THRU, I NEED TO PUT UP 2 LINES OF FFENCING BEHIND THE ARENA TO GIVE THOSE DOGS A RUNNING PLACE.. AND I REALLY NEED ANOTEHR SET OF STAIRS LIKE THE ONES IN THE ARENA FOR THE DOGS NOT IN THAT AREA TO PRACTICE ON...
YESTERDAY GOT COMPLICATRD BYT HE TOWN OF IPSWICH CUTTING DOWN DEAD OAK ON THE STREET-- NEGHBORS TOLD ME ABOUT IT AND I RUSHED OUT -- NICE GUY-- LEFT THE CHUNKS 6' LONG IN OUR DRIVEWAY --- OAK IS H E A V Y.... BUT WITH OUR CHAIN, AND TRACTORE WE MANAED TO DRAG IT TO THE G TENT WHERE SOMEONE BEFOR FALL CAN PLAY WITH THE SPLITTER. THERE IS ABOUT 2 CORDS OF RFIREWOOD THERE... I COUOLD NOT RESIST.
AND LASTLY... PUPPY PRODUCTION.
MAY IS IN HEAT... YESTERDAY BEING HER 9TH DAY SHE SHOLD BR VERY WILLING AND ATTRACTIVE... AND WE ASKED TIGGER TO JOIN HER... WELL THat didn't work out too well.. i don't know why.. he was willing but without enthusiasm... and we .. meg and i ... wer concerned.. that left bentley.. i would be thrilled because ha has had such lovely pups it would be good... however...he is a big dog...even with megan rying to hold up may and stay out of the way, bentley was just not going to get "the job " done... sir richard was here-- much lighter, younger, more enthusiastic, and agile so he managed a 36 minute tie. the problem with richard is he bred a femle before and she had no pups... i dunno why... could be a lot of reasons... one of them being ... no sperm... so we will be at it againtoday with tigger. this is where i wish we had a simple microscope to see if we had swimmers...( with opnly one head)
