Right Ma!

It's all about proper teaching. No matter how old school it is.

I call it common sense in this current not so smart decade.

Not everything is at their beck and call.

It's just buying some yardage from a properly folded bolt of fabric. You cut the fabric up and then sew it back together. Poof! Quilted Top!

It's magic.

I was at a dog park with Capri puppy--she was probably 5 months old--and she barreled right over a three year old (I mean, who brings a 3 year old to a dog park and lets him wander around unattended?) as she tore off into the distance after something. I saw the kid start to pucker up and saw mom heading over out of the corner of my eye, so I picked him up (he wasn't physically hurt, just scared, I think) and babbled at him in a fun way about that silly puppy who just RAN RIGHT over him...KABOOM!

And he giggled and that was that.

The parents who rush up and start in with the "OMG, are you alright!! That MEAN dog, did he hurt you??" drive me nuts. It's just setting those kids up to be afraid of all dogs.
I keep telling you all that each generation that is born is getting dumber and dumber. They may be smart about technology, but can they change a flat tire?

People that I speak of, may to be technologically able to build a gate, but not know how to close it? Would they know how to change their oil? Do they even know to make sure their oil is clean? What if they were on a lonely highway and Triple A was no where to be had?

Yes, I am throw a little temper tantrum here.

So, here comes my rant.

So, my right arm was all loaded up with my heavy coat, purse and lunch bag.

I turned around, after locking the door, and there were the goats.



Eating my grass that I maintain and pay taxes on.



They might have caused me to be late for work. But, I come out there all bowed up they split and gent. But, today I discovered they slip through the shut gate. Stupid neighbors aren't chaining it tight enough.

They were doing really good for an impressive amount of time. Now they are getting lazy again and leaving the chance for their livestock to piss me off.

I have to park by their gate to shut my gate. Before I shut my gate I tightened their chain up for them. I tighten it up really good! Lesson 101 on keeping your livestock contained.

I wasn't even all worried about leaving late for work and not in a hurry to get there was arrived 8 minutes early.

I probably should figure out how to start my own business.

Let's see:

Denny's Driving School

Denny's, How to Secure Your Livestock School book

Beginner Piece Quilting with Denny!

My rant is over for now, but I deserve the right to resurrect it.

Just thought, TN, if someone sees you shooting pics of these birds with your 100-400mm behemoth zoom lens, you might earn late visit at home by Army CID...
SD, they're strict with taking pics of stuff like the gates, headquarters buildings, the airfield, and actual training like the firing ranges or air assault training. For any of those you have to get permission from public affairs. I've thought about trying to get permission to shoot some of the air assault training like soldiers rappelling out of the Chinooks, it's really cool to watch.

Really neat pictures. What shutter speed do you have to use to get the rotor blades almost stopped? I think it is actually great that they're still blurry and obviously in motion--if you stopped them completely, I think it would look like the helicopter is just hanging there and be very weird.
1/160s. Just slow enough to get some rotor motion, but yet fast enough so I don't get too many out of focus pics. And you're right, if I increase the shutter speed, I get clearer pics but the choppers look like they're hanging in mid air or falling out of the sky LOL.

Question...I mean, you're there as a stress relief team, I gather. Do you hand out info about where anyone can go if they need more than what you guys do? What would happen if someone came by who was obviously way way overstressed and needed more help than you guys could supply? Do you refer them specifically? Are you instructed to call 911 or a hotline or something to report someone in major distress?

....

Mel, Here's an excerpt from the Pet Partners Handlers Guide, pg. 140, addressing those situations occurring with clients (persons being visited by therapy team) Essentially, report this to the facility staff. In all the facilities, we visit there is always a liasion we deal with for this situation.

------------------------------------------------------------------

"Information That Must Be Reported Only to the Facility


Occasionally, in the course of your visit, you might hear or see something that
could be of value to the client’s treatment. In these cases, you must report the information only to the facility, not to Pet Partners.

Information that you must report includes the following:

* Something that could compromise a client’s health, safety or well-being.

* Something that you discover about a client’s medical or emotional
condition.

* Something that a client says, or something in the client’s behavior, that you feel the staff should know about."

TNfisher Sunny and 61 today, tomorrow is my Friday off so (drum roll please) YES it's going to rain! Blah! But at least I won't be at work so there's that. Depending on the weather, I'll probably get a lot of reading done (I'm on book 2 of the Liveship Traders ) I'm really hoping it's not raining in the morning so Mocha and I can do our hike!

Eva StMU Visit Today Update

Completed 2nd of 3 college visits today around 3PM!

All went great!



Eva- Perky, Snooping in Fog Upstairs This Morning Before Leaving for Event




This was only Eva's 2nd group visit and her first to the St. Marys Univ. campus.
Due to a handler illness, only two other teams were there.
One was a male Aussie shepherd type, "Stormy" and the chocolate min poodle, "Hershey", who was at the UTSA event with Spock on Tues.

Here is Instagram post with a few pics, although blurred of Eva and students.

One can tell the students were really enjoying the dogs!
https://www.instagram.com/p/B5tCjQBH9pW/


About (150) students dropped by to visit the dogs and just loved Eva. She was loving and affectionate throughout the long 2 hours we were on campus. We'd perform some obedience tasks and tricks with treats periodically to perk her up. Eva is surprisingly better than Spock at the group events, as he gets a little too laid back and calm! Eva stays more perky and attentive to surroundings. Eva scored some McNuggets on way home as reward!

One more college visit next week for Spocko, (during finals studying).



Being petted by and smelling that many people at one event is extremely fatiguing for a therapy dog, so I leave you with.....


.....Miss Eva Totally Wiped Out After Getting Home!!

Wellllll....actually I hadn't been to bed yet. Went to bed at 7 AM (and I'd be fine with Hairy being there, but he won't come in my bedroom, for some reason. Something in his past, I guess) and got up at 9:30 AM. So I'm a little short today (in sleep, but if you guys push me, my temper might be short too LOL)

Beaumont67 Doc knows best.
- and LDi, got to "baby talk" to Scott, like you do Hoss, on delivering affection.

Now if Santa was rich...this is what PapaBear wants:

ECIN Good morning Di Just a little cool here - 27 -BUT no wind -- so not bad out .

Will attempt to finish up tax work today - Maybe ! lol

I personally think what SD And Spock do is fantastic - It has to feel so rewarding when SD comes home !

As far as a gift for Scott - 2 ideas - !!!

1. A bumper sticker that says ------------ Virginia is for Lovers

2. Have him lay down - then have him roll over on his back and give him a belly rub like you do Hoss

No Charge !
