9 + 4 = 13 is what we 've got all lively and chowing down. i swear with their first nursing within minutes of birth, they "round out" - sizzles 3 weighing 1 pound 6 ounces last night-- with the harl pup weighing 1 pound 10 ounces...--gabby is a pro.. "here take these babies-- i am going out for a walk-- when i get back i expect clean linnens , fresh water witha few pieces of cheese would be nice" where sizzle " i don't know where these things are coming from- but they seem to squeak and need constant attention-- my squeakey toy was much less trouble"
hopefully that gives ua a start on service dogs for people starting christmas of 2020.. already it starts pANIC 13 PUPS- WELL WE ARE WAY BEHIND MY "OFFICIAL " PLANS THANKS TO MOMMY NATURE..
MY PLAN IS TO HAVE A LITTER AND BREED THE NEXT FEMALE AT THE SAME TIME - THAT WOULD GIVE US 5 LITTERS A YEAR SHOULD E ABOUT 30 PUPS -- OR 25 FOR TRAINING WHICH SHOUDL GRADUATE MAYBE 20 -- WITH THE 3 TRAINERS AND SYSTEM WE NOW HAVE..
ALL IS GOOD-- THE GRADUATE DOGS ARE FANTASTIC -ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM THERE.. - AND THEN THE "BUSINESS " TYPE START ASKING QUESTONS AND LIFE GETS HECTIC. THESE ARE NOT SHOES THAT WE ARE MANUFACTURING AND PUT ON SOME SHELF AWAITING DISTRIBUTION...
LET ME REPEAT-- WHATEVER WE ARE DOING... THE DOGS ARE DOING A WONDERFUL JOB.... BUT THE "BUSINESS "NUMBERS JUST DO NOT COMPUTE... THAT JUST MAY BE A FACT OF LIFE--- AND TO HECK WITH IT-- BUT IT DOES BEAR THINKING ABOUT IT,.
DAUGHTER GWEN-- IN THE REAL WORKING WORLD LIKE HOSPITALS- SAID MY OBSERVATION SOUNDS PERFECTLY NORMAL TO HER.... REALLY???
TO THIS WHOLE OPERATION I HAVE TO APPLY A COEFFICIENT OF INEFFICIENCY- THE BIGGEST BEING "TIME OFF" -- BE IT SICK, VACATION, OR JUST PERSONAL- IN 30 DAYS OF JULY THERE WERE 7 DAYS WHEN ALL TEH EXPECTED/SCHEDULED PAID PERSONELL WERE ACTUALLY HERE...
FEEL FREE TO CORRECT MY LOGIC OR MATH
WITH ATTENDENCE 7 OUT OF 30 DAYS THAT IS 23%-- SO HOW MANY PEOPLE DO WE HAVE TO HIRE TO HAVE ONE PERSON ACTUALLY HERE... WORKING...
AT THAT RATE DO WE NEED TO HIRE 4.3 PEOPLE TO BE SURE ONE SHOWS UP..... ?
FRIGHTENING ISN'T IT???
NOW FOR PUPPY APPRECIATION TIME
