SEPT 13 2020
these pups are plump and active.... but they are also very frantic at food time and have real problems staying one to a bowl.... so that is what i will do today... this mob scene will be a problem down the road,,,,-----
Would you consider updating guidelines at the farm for volunteers?
Currently #1 sign in #2 keep 10 feet apart #3 wear mask #4 no going in buildings.
I've run into 2 volunteers who are anxious to come to the farm but not being able to go into the laundry building to use the bathroom is a problem. When I started back my visits were short for the same reason. Those of us with mature pea sized bladders are challenged. I now have been cleaning the laundry building and the ICE house so it's good. Hoping to be able to go into the barn soon.
Thank you for all you do and sharing Crazy Acres with all of us!
a detail i had not considdered
if everyone can keep 10 foot distance, i would love to have teh regular volunteers back helping.... even in the barn... what i totally object to is group of 3 people in one room just talking .
we have outside places for just talking.. .. you can socialize all you want in the t tent at 10 feet away from each other. but get 3 people in a building and i guarentee 2 people will get stuck in one doorway or they must go past someone standing in a narrrow hallway... when the one standing is me, i get very upset.
to our regulars,, come here..... but be ready for me to insist on 10 ' and if you are in a building be the only onbe in that are.
NOW I CAN TRY AND FIND COFFEE...
Rigby and Pluto get along great. They play like they’ve been together for years and just like hanging out together.
Pluto is wonderful! She had a few seizures during the first few months she was with us. I tried to wait to see the vet until I’d be allowed to go in with her because she’s very timid around strangers but she had a seizure two days in a row so I felt it couldn’t wait any longer. My vet was able to do an exam outside with me present. After a few blood tests and no evident causes we decided to try her on Phenobarbital. It’s seems to be working well...fingers crossed!
Even though she’s not helping someone as the service dog she was trained to be, I take her into as many stores as I can so she can use her skills! She loves getting dressed, going for a ride and helping me shop! One day Pluto and I were visiting my mother at Brooksby Village in Peabody, several residents stopped to admire her and ooh and aww about her impeccable behavior. We try to be good SDP ambassador’s and tell as many people who are interested about the incredible program you have built.
Thank you for all you do and for choosing me and my family to adopt and love this wonderful girl!

SINCE I KNOW YOU LIKE FACTS: NONE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON'S FALSE TEETH WERE WOODEN. HIS EARLY DENTURES WERE MADE FROM HIPPOPOTAMUS IVORY (WITH GOLD WIRE SPRINGS AND BRASS SCREWS), AND AFTER THAT, SOME COMBINATION OF ANIMAL AND HUMAN TEETH, LEAD AND IVORY.
I HAD SEVERAL OF THESE NOT WOOD NOTICES !!!
