one of the problem of the [political scene ???? as we morph from the actual voting, the tv channels lack the political commercisals and therefore run charity ones over and over and over.. i have to run and shut off the cold dogs of teh aspca-- and i just yell at the girl who broke up with her boyfriend in the adopt a kid one...my kingdom for a clever geico ad.

i am so full of "you must not say that's" this morning..that it is hard to write and make a point...... but that doesn't stop me----. to put something in socially acceptable terms...life is a crap shoot and not enough people understand basic statistics. things like... not every leaf blowing in the sky is a flying saucer...or if you cross the street enough times you eventually will get struck by a red bus. or the old chestnut... give enough monkeys enough typewriters and one will type the complete works of william shakespeare.

Trying to find an example which will not offend anybody --- let me try education .. I watch the commercials on TV now begging for students to go to their University .. “come here --have a scholarship for the first year “ .. then you will have a few credits toward your degree ... All you then need to do is take out a student loan to take a few more courses and if we give a special course in XYZ 101 that's required for this degree we can then say it's very special and charge twice for it .. and then add 14 more students to the class .. which won't cost us anything and they'll have to do it in order to get their degree .
at which point we will decide you are a graduate .. with a degree .. in the meantime you gave us a lot of money .. the bank's got a fairly reliable worker who can then spend the next 10 years making a profit for the bank paying off this loan.. very legal creative business,,,,
I remember .... I had two knees --- I still do .. but those knees 30 years ago hurt .. and I ended up going to an orthopedic surgeon .. operative word here is surgeon .. both of these were bad--- I've forgotten why .. at any rate he decided he needed to operate on them – he said that would put off the complications of arthritis .. of course I wanted to put off arthritic complications so I said fine cut up my knee .... Fortunately I decided to do only one knee at a time .. so I could still get around .. so he did that ..
The rest of that story .. is being blessed with such poor memory I totally forgot about the second knee till six months later I realized the bad knee was now as good as the knee I had fixed (at great expense .). but who cares insurance is paying for it ??? not the way to go ..
but he had planted in my head the fact that my knees were pre arthritic ... when in fact all of me is pre arthritic. Actually I am no longer “pre” anything.
Another case --- at Mail call the other day I had some reason stick my foot up in the air and show everyone the lump on my leg which was caused long ago by getting kicked by a baby horse . somewhere along the line with this knee surgery .. the surgeon started talking about this tumor on my leg ..of course the minute I heard tumor ...My mind was set in a panic .. because the concept of tumor is a lot different than the concept of lump ... and he knew that .. however I got home and my dr. husband said “ for heavans sake it's just fat --leave well enough alone. “.. He also made some comment about if you go to a surgeon they'll find something to cut .
I'm not sure what the cure for this problem is .. medicine is a business .. rent an equipment have to be paid for .. but statistically there has to be some line ...
Words do matter. Especially if they get planted in my head by someone trying to make a profit off my lack of knowledge .
Car mechanics to kindergarten teachers .. business is business.. “ you don’t want to get on the road and have A flAT TIRE.. LET ME HELP BY SELLING YOU 4 NEW ONES.”
MAYBE 3 WEEKS FROM NOW I WILL VENT WHAT REALLY HAS ME FLYING.

SOMETHING SORELY LACKING IN OUR TRAINING PROGRAM
2021 1 27
I never realized the combination of COV and a new recipient might involve having a new person take their new dog into a Cemetery for practice .. very logical nice and quiet place not a lot of traffic things like that to practice with the dog .. except from the dog standpoint the place is loaded with squirrels ... so it is perhaps the most unstable place to practice with the dog .. with the possible exception of college campuses where we have before had a problem with squirrels I was very happy to get the following email from Mary who has Abby ... she was afraid that if the dog behaved so badly in the Cemetery what on earth was it going to do in a Boston subway system when in fact The Boston subway symptom is not nearly as upsetting to the dog as a bunch of squirrels so Mary found out and sent the letter confirming but she behaved perfectly in the urban situation ..
I'm glad you all have heard from Pam .. it was a pain in the neck how all of you accusing me of firing her when I knew she was sick and in the hospital and I just couldn't tell you so hopefully you all keep each other in line if this kind of thing should happen again there are sometimes things I just can't but the daily doggy because there are times when I had put it in the daily doggy and caught health everybody so Pam has that cleared up she is on our payroll she is helping from afar Anne that's the status quo for the moment Fortunately she left her address in the comment column so you can send things directly to her not get me in the middle ..
I have heard from Claudia Bohemia in Czechoslovakia who will be breeding for another litter in the spring .. I've always liked the looks of her dogs they all seem to look like chaos we have one of her bloodline a male Merle Sir Richard parked away for breeding ... we did try and use him once when he was not quite a year old .. and he had not yet finished reading the instruction manual about the reproduction process .. he is very well bred .. his mother is supra who has an impossible number of championships in Europe ... A pedigree on a dog from Europe has much more to it then the typical AKC pedigree .. and to be honest there's some of it I don't understand so if all of you people want something to do crank up Claudia Bohemia is the kennel name and supra is Sir Richard's mother and is the dog she would be breeding it in the spring there is some sort of rating given to showdogs that has nothing to do with winning or losing but supras rating is 306 and I've never seen any other dog with it that high whatever it means .. figuring out that pedigree who is a super thing for somebody to do who's sitting around in the house because of COV ..and after you figure it out let me know .. I'm very familiar with the HD rating hip dysplasia A or B --- I think C is something like no visual signs oh hip problems and D I think is not to be bred .
or something like that----
- have a good time

i take back (nearly) all of those awkward thoughts about people who get a service dog..don't keep us informed... poor david landed in my pile of 1746( literally) spam emails that i don't look thru,,, i am guilty !! he did tell me he had arrived...
2021 1 26
Today's daily obsession is the fact that I heard( on the news of course) that Larry King was raised by a single mother .. this tweaked the previous obsession of mine about how many people were raised by single mothers very successfully .. of course there is Barack Obama but I think Bill Clinton also which started me back on how many presidents have been raised by single mothers .. that did not get me too far but whoever keeps the list of Hollywood and TV actors and actresses there is a very long list
(..this is .an aside to the dogs in my room....) who's growling ----what are you all doing in here...don't pull it up there slide out Don't call up that fluffy I just put it out there no thank you very much .. You had breakfast go away ...)
Being in the dog training business and knowing how being brilliant is most often the case of accidental observations ... I have in the past very often made note of a tremendously successful person talking about the perils of childhood that they had to endure .. we all know how our grandparents had to walk 5 miles to school uphill both ways .. and some went on to become very successful .. so is there not a logic to having children walk 5 miles uphill both ways to school .. At any rate the perils of being raised by a single mother just doesn't seem to hold water .. not that I'm suggesting it be a desirable situation .. but there is certainly an awful lot of people who managed that situation. Likewise It seems to me that most very successful people have gone through a phase of being dead broke .. this may be a necessary part of anybody's education ... even though the very wealthy try and redo it by going camping where they live in a tent with no electricity lights or anything else but a lot of equipment .. That's sort of the part of being homeless in the Woods ..
I went through a phase of tent living for one weekend .. there was a bicycle ride for the benefit of I think aids .. and my children were writing in it and they needed motorcycle riders to help and I had a motorcycle .. so I have had the distinct pleasure of sweeping qa 12 inch path thru broken glass out of every intersection between bear mountain NY and Boston MA ... because all these bicycle riders needed only about a 1 foot wide path through this broken glass .. and nearly every intersection has broken glass to some degree ... at least it doesn't wash into storm drains and end up in the ocean it just stays there and blows up tires of bicycle riders .. so I swept and moved for the three days involved which was two days camped out in a very well organized campgrounds in those pop up tents two people to a tent. it is not my choice to live on hard ground in a tent .. but I can certainly look at some of these homeless situations and be very glad I have been lucky enough not to have to live like that .
Back when the population of the world was not quite so crowded .. it was possible for the older teenagers young 20s to serve in the peace core send him to some godforsaken spot to live in a tent and try and help local residence somehow .. that concept I think is a very good one Very similar to having the same age group serve in the military ... but I'm not sure in today's CLV world that you can find the place isolated enough to make the peaqce corp at all practical ..
Why that reminds me of something said by somebody else I don't know but flickering through my head was just ... “ if God had intended us to fly he would never have given us the railways “—which could be twisted to..... If God had intended us to have purple skinn he would have given it to us .. I suppose you could say there are a few purple marks under skin which appear naturally ... and I do have a related comment on that one .. .my sister franny -living in Colorado has a small birthmark on her leg .. I have a small birthmark on my leg ... and I noticed my daughter
Janine has a small birthmark same place on her leg ---so much for things breeding true ..
The fact that I did not notice one of our breeding females had entropian .. is one of my mistakes with breeding great Danes . entropion is a case where some of the eyelashes turn in and irritate the eyeball .. requiring surgery to fix ... in a few cases we had it in our past , George rotated the eye lash for about $200 .. now they want 2800 dollars to do the same thing .. this is progress ? it's a long way from doctor Connie teabo Doing a quick fix on a dog in his yard----on a bench .. With a cone of ether for anesthesia ... .. I never heard of him losing a dog.. and I'm pretty sure I would have .. many times I have run into his garage /slash office and retrieved a glass syringe out of a collection in a bowl, in his sink ... Connie had retired and basically giving up his practice but would occasionally help out friends ... he was beyond billing people and would just help out friends here and there ,,, I remember one time I paid him with a gallon of pennies to use as a doorstop ... he loved that gallon of pennies and it was around for a long time holding his door open .
in case you need to know a gallon of pennies is very close to $60.00 ... and I once ran a raffle with guess how many pennies are in a 5 gallon jug ... which I had carefully loaded by unwrapping pennies ... so I knew exactly .., and the five gallons was $291.00 and I forget the change .
cutting and pasting......
JUST THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE YOU A QUICK UPDATE ON AURORA.
SHE IS DOING GREAT. STILL AMAZED AT HOW QUICKLY SHE SETTLED IN HERE.
DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS AND A RISE IN CASES LOCALLY WE HAVE ONLY BEEN TO TRACTOR SUPPLY EVERY OTHER WEEK FOR CHICKEN FEED WHICH SHE DOES WONDERFUL WITH. SHE ISN'T LOOKING BEHIND HERSELF AS MUCH AS SHE WAS WHEN I FIRST BROUGHT HER HOME. I AM TAKING THAT IS SHE IS GAINING MORE TRUST IN ME HAVING HER BACK? WHO KNOWS. HER PACE WITH ME IS WONDERFUL! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
WE DID GET IN TO TOWN JUST ONCE TO WALK WITH HOPES OF GOING MORE OFTEN JUST TO WALK BUT IT'S BEEN SO COLD!
"WORKING" TOGETHER HAS MORE SO BEEN HERE AT HOME, OUT TO FEED CHICKENS, CHECKING THE MAIL AND AROUND THE HOUSE FOR NOW.
I HAVE A SMALL OUTER PERIMETER FENCE AROUND THE CHICKEN COOP AND CHICKEN RUN SO SHE CAN GO WITH ME, JUST NOT IN THE RUN ITSELF.
SHE STILL PRETTY ROUGH IN PLAY MODE WITH RETIRED SD LYDIA AND MY GRAND DOG CAPONE (RESCUE DANE) SO HAVING THE BALL OUT THERE TO PLAY WITH HER DOES WELL WITH DISTRACTING HER FROM GOING AFTER THEM. NOT AGGRESSION JUST PLAY BUT VERY ROUGH. SHE HAS JUMPED AT ME IN PLAY WHICH I HAD TO CORRECT HER FOR. SHE JUST REQUIRES THAT TIME TO PLAY WITH THAT BALL TO GET HER "WIGGLES" OUT WHICH SEEMS TO WORK.
I WILL BE GETTING HER SET UP WITH MY VET AT THE END OF THE MONTH. LYDIA HAS HER PHYSICAL SO I WILL BRING AURORA'S RECORDS WITH ME AT THAT TIME TO GET THAT STARTED.
OTHER THAN THAT, NOT MUCH EXCITING TO REPORT. I HOPE YOU ALL STAY SAFE AND WARM. PRAYING THIS COVID THING WILL BE MANAGEABLE SOON .

the ultimate in message leaving ...
then last night lacking any proper cookies somebody had left a Dunkin' Donuts chocolate brownie on thecounter.....so I ate the whole thing .. within minutes I had all the symptoms of COV with a choking and coughing and hacking and wheezing .. i doubt Dunkin' Donuts is lacing them with strange things oso.....maybe I'm just plain allergic to whatever was in 'em heavy duty chocolate but I realized I was in trouble and found the benedryl that we have on the counter in case we have a dog problem and I took 2 went back to bed .. then I realized someone really ought to know that I have two Benadryl in me already in case things get worse. i needed toget a message to an emt who might have to deal with me if i got worse....
so I thought of writing it in magic marker on my forehead ..
well I couldn't find a marker ... so I told Claire our overnight person . I really doubt the Dunkin' Donuts put any cannabis in their brownies .. I must be allergic to chocolate of some kind -------that's ... a hell of a note ......or possibly dunkin is lacing them with odd medicinal now legal things????? it tasted really good !!
Moving back to the garden project from yesterday I did hear from Janet who said that was an excellent place to have a a garden but she doubted she could be much help because she's terrified of snakes so will be looking for people that help with that project that aren't afraid of snakes .. actually I think the snakes are on that island and then on the far side of the pond I've never seen any on this side .. I've never looked too hard either .
I believe Janine has left off 2 pregnant donkeys here now and she says she has one more somewhere which she will be dropping off and turning in with our bunch ..I should not tempt fate but usually donkeys are so Placid that they really don't care who joins them --- other than a shake of the tail .. you couldn't bounce around a bunch of horses like this they'd get it in awful mass kicking ..
Watching doctor Pol o n National Geographic makes me think it would be fun to have a milking goat .. but then I remember how cold it is of how you have no choice you have to milk them so I forget that project .. of late there's been some very cute miniature pigs .. and if I was younger I might be able to figure that out ..I always I always like pigs .. they are far more intelligent then we give them credit for ... But they definitely have some physical disabilities .. like their head neck arrangement is not conducive to much of anything except digging holes in the mud . I did find out that if you feed a pig grain they don't smell . is when you feed them kitchen leftovers that have some fat or meat in them that they become very odoriferous ..

wooowoowoooo i woke up several recipients... people-- especially younger people do not realize i do not peruse facebook looking for gems of wisdom... am i allowed to say that this new moderrn way of communication is a paucity of worthwhile information. to put it mildly.
2021 1 24
Starting with I know very little about gardening ... but way back when I lived in Lynnfield I had two friends Ricki and Rosemary who knew about serious gardening and I had a fenced in pastoure I wasn't using ---about half an acre .. and Rosemary was the one who educated me about the fact that as soon as you can get the ground chipped loose .. it was time to put the peas in .. which meant that in about 60 days I could send my two young children out to the garden to eat peas before they came into the kitchen have their protein course ... saved a lot of time and effort in pots and pans .. point being if you got the peas in early enough you can plant something else there and still get produce .. we eventually planted corn .. carrots and of course the gardener's favorite zucchini .. but also an awful lot of pickling cucumbers .. because from my mother I inherited several really good recipes for Canning pickling cucumbers .. which if you plant two of those seeds s you will end up with enough cucumbers to feed the village ..
so it's back to planting peas .. I have not been able to have a garden here because of so many dogs and becausw I was totally lacking in creativity to figure out how to have a garden here .. last nights insomnia made me realize I have a fence around the pond .. which if I moved it back 6 feet from the pond it will be no loss till the dogs who are running around it anyway and it would provide a fenced in area that is wonderfully deep in top soil .. with ready access to water ---dip a bucket .. and it seems to my simple minded soul we ought to be able to grow peas there at least .. peas and sunflowers .. because with that 6 foot fence around it I don't think the deer could get at it either ..
John and his son pounded all those posts in around the pond in one day .it's very good pounding soil not the usual rocking New England .. because the whole area probably was once covered with water back when they were glaciers and things around .. at any rate if I pull all those posts out with a tractor which wouldn't take me more than about an hour maybe we could pound the posts about 6 foot away from the pond which would give us room 2 run a mower next to our fence garden and the peas could crawl up that fence which we could reach through they get them without too much trouble .. moving that fence back in a circle means it would be too short ----geometry being what it is ----so we can put in gates every so often to make up the difference =====any case the dogs would not be welcome in there but without a great deal of difficulty we could have wonderfully raw peas and still throw in some great big sunflowers ..---
In our volunteer group Janitce and a few others other gardening experts ..I haven't checked this concept with her yet as our resident expert but at the moment it sounds doable to me. .. she was the one that put in that garden fence next to the flat field .. which was hugely successful and I did enjoy many moments out there pulling out the raw peas ....
If any of you have access to soil .. even just 18 inches square , it's worth the $3.50 that the pea seeds would cost to put him in the ground as soon as you can in April and you just might have some really good healthy vegetable produced .. it's not necessary to have any great fancy gardening equipment ---- my favorite digging tool is a soup spoon ... and a broom handleand a coup;le wire coat hangers would give the peas something to climb on .. if you don't have ready access to water, what I have been known to do is the a Poland Springs water bottle and put a needle hole in the bottom .. so I could hold it shut with my thumb to fill it ---put the top on .. take it out of the garden stick it in with the peas and take the top off .. and it dribbles the whole bottle full of water into the ground exactly where you need it .. with just that for equipment you should be able to raise peas ..
keep in mind there may be an awful lot I don't know ..
we all know that .. but it appears to me that's all I ever had to do ....
if jaaniste does see this as viable , it would give us a wonderful project to have where people would be at least 10 feet apart out of the fresh air .. that would be a good thing ..
so I await her opinion . I think she reads this daily doggy .
To cheer you all up go look at the burpee catalog online and stare at the tomatoes and Peppers and squash .. it will make you feel better . spring's gotta come sometime .
She said " seeing a Great Dane is like seeing a unicorn, there aren't that many around."
"down" part of the command but, had crawled across the floor on her belly in order to better see herself in a mirror. Typical female.
Gabbey and TinI am so excited to see more and more dogs getting matched!!Tin and I just started going back to school two weeks ago, but due to COVID we only go two days per week. Tin has been doing pretty good with going to school. He is a little confused on why there are so many doors and we are not going in them all. We are still working on his focus in the hallway, but only going to school two days a week makes it difficult. He is learning to get used to so many people in the hallway, but it’s hard because we dont go five days a week and he really needs repetition. I believe that this will get better in time and in fact I have already seen some improvements!Aside from school Tin has been doing fantastic! He loves when we go out to work and he is so willing to please. I haven’t had any issues with him when going out places except for some very tiny things that we rework and he does it perfectly! Tin is such a good boy and enjoys watching mail call and listening to everyone and watch all the dogs!I continue to thank you for providing me with such an amazing dog. SDP and Tin means everything to me and I will never be able to thank you all enough.

GOD BLESS FRANCE
I WAS IN A TERRIBLE SNIT BEFORE I REAd That thing about France now I'm only in a slightly minor SNIT...unfortunately it's another one of those things that I can't put in the daily doggy ... but I can only insinuate how sNITTED I am .
let's make a study of it .. it starts when you have to locate a great quantity of white inexpensive washcloths ... we like the inexpensive ones because they just work better ... then you have to locate Kelly clamp scissors and dental floss and start drinking coffee .. after a while you get to welcome a new puppy into the world ,,..you get to welcome not only the puppy but just about as much goop that is born with the puppy .. about three washcloths full which aren't washed but thrown out .. so after getting the pup dried off and nursing you're all set of babysitting that dog for a year and a half .. during which time oh there is a metamorphosis from obnoxious rambunctious teenage horror .. into a perfectly behaved helper / companion for somebody with a mobility disability .. but.... in the meantime.......
there is so much that goes into the rearing and training of these dogs .. there are books and articles written all round the block but I think I found a topic that others may have missed ..
------these darling little puppies weigh a pound and a quarter grow very quickly---- so where THEIR BM’s Start off as relatively insignificant within a month or two they weigh one pounds average per day .. And I studied that from two angles .. 1st I have weighed the dry food that you put into the dog who then mixes it with water as then weigh what comes out which I just did the other day so I could write this .. .. My other way of checking to see if my calculations are correct purerena gives us wonderful dog food 192 bags every other month .. so to make life easy it's 100 bags a month ... At 37 and 1/2 pounds per bag that's 3750 Pounds per month .. which probably more than doubles in weight when you add water .. so let's call it conservatively 6000 pounds .. 3 tons 12 months 36 tons...Let's just quit there and say a big number .
so now Back to this one puppy ( that we are about to donate to someone )has these kind of numbers /
So in the year and a half between birth and graduation somehow crazy acres has had to deal with 547 days of Pooh picking .. Furthermore at 2 BM's a day let's round that off to half a ton .
... so let's just keep going ..half a ton per dog .. and we have graduated now about 200 dogs .at half a ton each ... So what can you compare to 100 tons I don't know .. maybe a battleship . in the best of times there is no way 12 acres can absorb a half a ton oh poo per dog that's here on the property and most of the time there's about 50 on the property
Now you understand two things... #1.. the guy who picks up our trash/ dump;ster is definitely one of the critical jobs in this pandemic... and #2 that is a lot of bending over .... to train service dogs????? but we do it...
So why is it so hard for recipients to regularly copy and paste a funny story or thankyou...
to all the people who have #1 picked that poo #$2 supported us with the chicken bricks #3 suffered thru these daily doggies when I am sorely lacking in materials?????????
Some recip[s are wonderful... you all know who they are.... but the ones that go down the driveway and I never hear a word are the ones that aree going to cause me to get writers cramp.. when it comes to recertifying and writing letter=s. I have told everyone of them I do not read facebook and need an email sent to me directly . how unreasonable is that ? you all who support sdp desearve better attention..
So afer all that .
I learned a new word zeugma... I have long enjoyed the song “have some madera m’dear” specially for the zeugmas it contains
· And he said as he hastened to put out the cat, the wine, his cigar and the lamps
· She lowered her standards by raising her glass, her courage, her eyes and his hopes
· She made no reply, up her mind and a dash for the door.
Marnie asked me to check in with you. As the pandemic numbers continue to escalate, our pack continues to quarantine (fyi our pack consists of Marnie, her Bernedoodle Hamilton, our bear in the form of a 17 pound Sheltie Mandy, hubby Randy and me). We are getting a bit stir crazy and we are thankful to live on 13 acres where Marnie and her Doodle can run. I’ve never known a dog who so enjoys and needs to run hard and often as Marnie. Marnie’s Doodle, Hami, was just about 4 months old when Marnie and I were matched. He used to trail far behind her in the run--and when she turned and started running towards Hami, he would turn with a shocked look on his face and high-tail it to me sitting on the steps. You could just here him yelling “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy” as he ran to me. Now he can stay a little closer to her but still can’t catch her unless he takes a short cut through my garden to head Marnie off. Sometimes, as she closes in on him, he still turns and runs away from her with a look that isn’t quite as surprised as when he was younger but still looks a bit shocked. Marnie and her Doodle brother love each other a lot and are the perfect pair of housemates. Hami is still young (he turned 1 in November) and sometimes when I stand, he wants to continue playing with Marnie but she is even more determined to get to me to help. She is teaching him when to stop playing so she can work.
My disability comes from a deteriorating spine and lately the referred pain and weakness has changed from my right hip to my left. It has been hard for me to continue walking with Marnie supporting me from my left side…..so we are working on making Marnie ambidextrous. At first she was horrified and afraid to work from my right. Marnie is getting much better but, to start I must be in a position where she can’t get to my left side….and is instead forced to my right—like standing next to a piece of furniture on my left. Marnie and I are still are a work in progress but she is getting more comfortable although she walks a bit to far forward because she feels the need to watch my steps by looking down and back. I lavish her with praise and she still works on my left most of the time. My back is finding some relief from having Marnie switch sides for even a small part of the time--so it is easier for me to switch back and forth. If you have suggestions, I surely will appreciate them. I will also email Lynn to see what suggestions she has for helping Marnie become more ambidextrous.
We really don’t have anything else to report. We are bored silly (as you will see in the attached picture) and hope that I can get vaccinated in the near future so we can venture out a bit more.
Stay safe and healthy!
Marnie and Peggy
