well its official....

So the photography that I thought i was upon to take and be rich on was going to follow through. Photography as a career is competitive. Now my camera skills has gone to 'as a hobby'. I now have moved on too learning travel and tourism. I also find geography and fun thing to learn. People in other areas of the world and what they are doing, and how they live is interesting. And the many different places to visit like Grand Canyon National Park, Miami Florida etc. So that is career update its been a while since i have been here, i hope to be back sooner than later.

Another new dog WHY?

So another new dog why? Duke was a cutie by all means something about him I didn't like, he had a growling thing about him and a deep one too that was evilish too me. So it was a replacement in act. Missy came out to me at the shelter, i saw her first with a paw up to the cage and an adoption paper sign next.
Fall comes and now im interested in photography. College! Yes I want the certificate. Skipping all that nonsense and go straight to the juicy stuff.
I can't wait till Spring starts..... Its a short demo on whats going on with meee!
Between then and now....i went to a wedding, the beach, visited lots of family, went to a funeral, and had lots of cake! :)

Poor Deija.....I love her so much!

Lately Deija legs hasn't been up to full doggie workable terms. Her legs has been jitter'ie (her back ones). Not all the time but maybe for a few seconds everyday. Cant say how long it last- Aprrox. 2 minutes, and it can go longer or shorter. She's been slipping on out floors a little bit more. (we dont have carpet floors) The past week she has the diahhara. Ive been cleaning her poor butt everyday. Between wipes and spraying it witha hose. I called the vet to see what to do. The told me to come in, I said i have no money and the recommended 'canned pumpkin' one spoonful. So i do that. But she hates the taste! A dog that loves human food hates pumpkin. Well thats all folks. We dont know how much longer Deija will live. Until Deija can't walk......we dont want to let her suffer.

Types of Group Homes

Types of Group Homes

Group homes serve as residences for unrelated people who are unable to care for themselves independently, or need supervision due to behavioral problems. From the outside, most group homes look like typical houses in a residential neighborhood.
.Developmentally Disabled
Developmentally disabled individuals have permanent disabilities that cause mental and/or physical problems that prevent the person from living independently and caring for himself. Group homes encourage as much independence as is feasible and safe for these individuals.
Youth Homes
Group homes also serve abused and neglected youth and runaways as a shelter. Youths who have committed criminal activities may reside in a more restrictive group home as an alternative to prison, or as part of parole conditions.
Substance-Abuse Recovery
Similar to a halfway house, another type of group home helps recovering addicts overcome their addiction and re-enter society as functional individuals while offering appropriate monitoring and support.
Low-Income Group Homes
Some group homes serve special populations with low income, such as the elderly and teenage mothers and their children.
Community Opposition
Regardless of the type, many homeowners oppose group homes in residential neighborhoods, as they fear they will cause crime and/or plummeting home values. Group home administrators say these fears are unfounded. (See Reference.)

Group Home license requirement

Indian Housing - HUD's Office of Native American Programs (ONAP)
The Department of Housing and Urban Development's policy to promote the general welfare by meeting the national goal of providing decent, safe and affordable housing for lower-income Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian families is administered by the Office of Native American Progams (ONAP).
ONAP ensures that safe, decent and affordable housing is available to Native American families, creates economic opportunities for Tribes and Indian housing residents, assists Tribes in the formulation of plans and strategies for community development, and assures fiscal integrity in the operation of the programs.

The Department is committed to vesting in Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) the maximum amount of responsibility for administering their housing programs. To accomplish this objective, the Department consults with American Indian and Alaska native governments, TDHEs and national Indian and Native Hawaiian organizations when developing legislation, regulationis and policies that affect tribes.

The Department also encourages the development of mutually beneficial partnerships designed to assist Native Americans by expanding homeownership and affordable housing opportunities; empowering residents of Indian housing through the creation of jobs and economic development opportunities; enforcing fair housing opportunities; making Indian housing development drug-free; and helping to end overcrowding and homelessness.

what are they saying about dog grooming?

Typical costs:
For small breeds or mid-sized breeds that do not have thick hair or require a complicated cut, grooming costs about $30 to $50. Examples include the Bichon Frise, Miniature Poodle, Maltese, Cocker Spaniel and Labrador Retriever.
For mid-sized breeds, or larger breeds that do not have thick hair or require a complicated cut, grooming costs about $50 to $70. Examples include the Wheaten Terrier, Collie, Afghan Hound, Chow Chow and Golden Retriever.
For mid-to-large-sized breeds that have thick hair and require complicated cuts, or giant breeds, grooming costs about $70 to $90 and up. Examples include the Standard Poodle, Bernese Mountain Dog, Bouvier Des Flandre, Briard, and Great Pyrenees.
Bath-only grooming -- with bath, ear cleaning and nail trimming -- on a non-matted dog costs less than full grooming -- usually 50 to 75 percent of the price. This is most common for dogs with very short hair.
Average grooming prices tend to be about 25 percent higher in the Northeast region of the country than in the Midwest, with the rest of the country falling in between, according to
What should be included:
The groomer usually bathes and dries the dog, cleans the ears, trims the nails, and clips the hair into a particular style.
Additional costs:
De-matting for long hair costs about $7 to $9.
For $3 to $10 extra, a groomer will use flea-killing shampoo or skin-soothing colloidal oatmeal shampoo or do a hot oil treatment.
For about $10 extra, a groomer will remove skunk odor.
For about $10 to 20 extra, a groomer will brush teeth or express the anal glands.
Hand cutting, which is time consuming, costs between $10 and $30 more than using clippers, depending on the size of the dog. It offers a different look.
Mobile grooming clinics charge a convenience fee -- about $10 to $15 extra.
A puppy groom can cost as little as $10.
Some groomers have referral programs, where a client can earn free or discounted grooming.
Tip: At-home grooming costs very little. For dogs that require trimming, professional-grade clippers and scissors can be a wise investment for between $50 and $150. Dressler's Dog Supply offers a range of professional tools, and offers videos and DVDs on dog grooming starting at about $25.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has an at-home grooming guide.
Shopping for a dog grooming:
To find a groomer, ask fellow dog owners, your veterinarian or a humane organization. Or, contact the National Dog Groomers Association of America.
Tip: Before making an appointment, stop by the facility to check cleanliness and meet the groomer. It is important to make sure pets are checked on regularly during cage blowdrying, or dried by hand, to prevent overheating. The Humane Society of the United States has a primer on choosing a groomer. Large chain pet stores, such as PETCO and PetSmart offer grooming services.
Groomers usually require proof that vaccinations are up to date.
Tip: Tell the groomer ahead of time if the dog is geriatric or has health problems or behavior issues. Many groomers will not accept aggressive dogs.
Tip: Before leaving the salon, make sure the groomer understands exactly what you want -- ideally by showing a photograph. Best Friends Pet Care has a primer on how to talk to a groomer as well as grooming tips with photos for many breeds.

How to Build a Mobile Dog-Grooming Vehicle

Another how to build a mobile vechile click this

From the Mobile Dog Groomer's View

The daily schedule for a mobile dog groomer is quite different than that of a shop-based groomer. The mobile groomer begins the day with a vehicle check. Is the water tank full? Is the propane heater full and working properly? Depending on the season, either the AC or the onboard furnace must be checked to assure it is operational. The mobile groomer must also be sure to carry extra fuses and a very long hose in case refills are needed, as well as all the necessary disposable grooming supplies, such as shampoo and conditioner.

Time equals money for a mobile unit. In the shop, the next dog and grooming fee are just a couple of feet away. The mobile dog groomer must often drive to another neighborhood to meet his next client, so fewer dogs can be groomed in a single day. This results in a grooming fee that is normally $10.00 to $15.00 more than the average shop fee.

The mobile groomer is also more accessible to the dog owners. This gives the advantage of being able to check what the customer wants, resulting in a customized groom. However it can also slow the groomer down significantly if the customer wants to hang around and chit chat. Many dogs will also struggle to return to the owner, making the grooming more challenging for the mobile groomer.

Clayre's Pool Fence Fund

So anyone know of someone that drowned? A baby drowned? and child drowned? I will tell you a story one of that has to do with my myself.

When I was 9years old, and I was playing with my friend, she was younger than I. It was our first summer in las vegas. In the heat, 100 degress, we were playing with water buckets. We ran out of water. Running through the bushes around these houses. This one house had no gate around there pool. My friend thought it would be cool to go fill our water buckets up. Not! we did, while we did, she fell in. I had to jump to grab her. We jumped out and went home. My mother was there and was wondering why I was all wet. Awful me! I was not a good lier. Had to tell her. We went and told the neighbors. Boy was that a mistake! Grumpy man he was. my mothers mention maybe it was a good idea he stick a gate around a pool, all he had was bushes around the pool, it hid very well. my mom called the health dept. and a few weeks later we heard him pounded away with the gate.

My friend recently lost he first child, named Clarye. Just like any pool drowning accident, in can happen anytime. Her mother Brianna and her family had set up a foundation called "Clayre Foundation" or "Clayre Pool Fence Fund" Currently in Clark County older homes with pools built before 2003 are NOT REQUIRED TO BE EQUIPPED
WITH barriers or alarms. However, all new pools constructed since that time, do require the minimum of installation of a door alarm. One problem that we face, is that some families choose to disable their alarm because it is annoying and somewhat of a nuisance. Unfortunately, many innocent lives have already been lost this year,
and more will be lost without your help and support.

We set up this foundation to try to prevent other families from going through the loss of their precious child.

Please check out their website. Click Clarye- Foundation

Simba Poem

Fat furball yelling in the door
laying down and screaming to be petted
Petted as he gets, Rolls over like a dog
Dog he is not but a furball he is.

Follows me around and around
Wants food, water and litter box changed
screaming, yelling talking away
fat furrball he is to this day

St. Patty Day 2010

I thought it would of been fun to go to work and talk to my workbuds and wear green things, but "no" i was off work. So my next biggest fun thing to do was to hang with my mom and go to the dog park. And thats what we did. The only green I wore was a necklace, it only lasted so long because it broke because Deija did her arm wave to me. My moms dog came along too, Lucky, a Chiwawha. He loved it! he followed another 3 small dogs around the park, and their owner that walk around. If Lucky got lost he hang with the big guys, Deija and Mo. Even though he hated them! Well maybe? And this other dog a Basset Hound so cute and adorable came over and sat on my lap for 4seconds was the coolest things ever! It was so smart, i was amazed!
