reliable pet information at this website

Hi everybody! I'd like to share a great website for referencing questions you may have concerning your pets. It seems that many sites simply want to sell you products and/or perhaps address part of an issue you may have. One of my vet friends advised me to use the following site when researching medical and behavioral topics for pets. All the articles are written by veterinarians. All the articles will do is inform you with reliable information. Give it a try! The site is
www.veterinarypartner.com
Also, I'd like to invite you to once again have an oral exam of you dog (or cat) which I will be happy to perform for you. We can schedule a non-anesthetic dental for your pet if it's needed. All pets I've performed dentals on at past events are again due!! Del & I will be in site 144 and we look forward to seeing you, and introducing you to our new puppy! He is a 5 month old pomeranian, this is his first time in the RV and first time camping! Come see Cubby!!

rockhounding in Ellensburg, Wa

Wow,
What a week. You think Dennis the Mensis was dirty. He had nothing on me.
Each day I set out early with a new adventure in hand. With an empty backback except 20lbs of tools and water and a couple of cliff
bars I set off, sometimes with the dogs and some not, the temp of the day made a difference. If it was hot they stayed in air conditioned
Betty my Rv tow behind.
By the end of every day I was covered in dirt, scrapped from climbing a few cliffs and exhausted. My backpack on the way back to the truck
was around 50-60 lbs with some really cool rocks.
At one local I had to manage a 60 lbs geo into my truck alone in the middle of no where.
I had alot of good laughs and great weather. Managed to wrangle a case of sweetttt peach into the truck on the way back.

Northwest RV Supply: my store

I joined Rainbow RV a year ago and haven't posted a thing. :(  Through this difficult economy I have managed to keep business afloat, thanks to some really great opportunities.  One was July 2011: we purchased all of the rv parts (wholesale value of $1.4million) from the old fleetwood plant in Pendleton, Oregon - 15 semi-truck loads.  The most recent was from Monaco National Parts Service Warehouse in Harrisburg, Oregon on August 21, 2011, with a wholesale value of $2million.  We've been collecting, so to speak, for 14 years now and have quite an impressive inventory of hard to find items. To say the least, we have a lot of parts. :)  

I guess it's time I let my people know about it.  Feel free to call me at the shop 866-6RVSHOP (866-678-7467) or (541)746-9092 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Twin Ponds Lodge, Albion Maine

The particularity of this Campground besides all the services it offers like 50 amps, pull thrus, inside swimming pool, wood fired sauna, whirlpool, game rooms, 18 feet screen, pot luck dinners , the 2 ponds, fishing, (I caught 5 bass) and the list could continue...is the fact that it is a gay clothing optional  heaven.
We were supposed to stay there a week, we are now in our third week.
The management is exceptional, friendly and they maintain the premises spotlessly clean.
Will add some pictures soon

Red Beach for Camping

Does anyone know about Red Beach Camping grounds?  It is located on Camp Pendleton. For a fee of $60.00 you can register to join and camp all year round, that is when it is open.  The military train their, but when they are not training, they open it to civilians.  It is right on the beach or the bluff if you choose.  I would like to go soon, are there any others who would like to go?  Hit me up.

Magdalen Islands

Buying a RV and finding ourselves  in the first month few hundred miles offshore on a group of islands is to say the least unexpected!
We want to explore North America and decided that we would travel as far East as we could to start with. We were not disapointed,  where can you find so close to home hundred of miles of sandy beaches, the only drawback is the inconvenience of taking a 5:50 hours ferry ride to get there but its worth it. 4 small villages, quaint fishermen houses, very friendly people and what to say of the fresh lobsters and the abundance of seafood.
verything that is good has an end, leaving tomorrow for the mainland hoping to be in Maine beginning of August
For those that could be interested in following our whereabouts, just click on the following link: http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0SrJVD4qLDY2aq8abCh3AJeAITqnMy7br

Nor-CAl RRV @ Parkers

Had a great time with everyone at Parkers this 4th of July. Great movies and lots of visiting. All went well with Myrtle, she towed like a champ. With the exception of a little knife accident (thank you Jerry for patching me up) all went well.

I am Sorry, Gregory

First, I need to appoligize to Gregory.  When I first subscribed to RainbowRV,  I started to recieve e-mails from straight porno sites.   I blamed his site.  Not sure if that was the case, but if anyone else has experienced the same, please let him know.   Gregory, I am sorry.  It caught me on a very bad day.

I took my new Rv,  05 Forester 26ft out to OKC to meet my parents, who are familiar with Rving for many years.  And yes, it was hotter than hell.  But found some things wrong, and it is now back at the dealership for some repares.  Next trip will be in July to Red River, NM for family vacation.

Tips on Recognizing Warning signs and Avoiding Pet Bites

Hi! It's Chris of Pet Dental Works.  This weekend I will once again be performing non-anesthetic dentals at the Tucolata Springs campground.  If you haven't read my blog postings from last February that describes veterinary oral disease and describes the dental procedure, take a look if you have the time! Lots of information there!

I will remind you that the non-anesthetic dental procedure should be performed twice a year - so those pets that had dentals last Feb. at Pechanga are now again due for the procedure!  This upcoming trip will be the last trip with Rainbow RV that Delanie and I will take with the group until this fall sometime, so if you're considering having your pet's teeth cleaned, this weekend is the best time to accomplish that!  Give  me a call at 949-350-6464 to schedule an appointment - I'll be happy to take a look to see if your pet is a candidate for my procedure - and we'll be in site A22 this coming weekend.  I will try to do most dentals on Friday all day and Saturday in the morning.  We will arrive late on Thursday.  Alternately, just drop by if that suits you! 

I know a very good dog trainer in Orange County, Mary Jensen.  She wrote a very good article on recognizing pet bite warning signs and tips on how to avoid bites.  I'd like to share some of that info with you here:

LOOK FOR PET BITE WARNING SIGNS LIKE:

HAIR UP - Means the pet is either scared or aggressive.  Where is the hair up?  If the pet's hair is up at the tip of the neck and base of the tail only, the pet is scared.  If the pet's hair is all the way up across the whole back, growling or bearing teeth, the pet is aggressive.

Our First trip|

Hi every one,

We have made it to our first ever Camping Site.
Our RV is now our only home.
Wayne was a bit nervous driving our baby but did it well.
Have to find a technician to activate properly our Explorer satellite dish.
The technician from Shaw refused to install our decoders pretending that they can do it only on stationary motorhomes. What a joke that is!
We have bought a SPOT and will enter on here the link to follow us for the ones that could be interested to know.
Ourselves we are interested to meet members of Rainbow RV Club  where we will be travelling and if mutually enjoyable travel together part of the way.
Hope to hear from you

Can't go RVing everyday, but we can go to the river on the days we are not RVing

Can't go RVing everyday, but we can go to the river on the days we are not RVing

Hi Everyone,

We try to have an outing every month, but sometimes it doesn't work out so on these days we go to A local County Park Evey morning that's less then A mile away from home. We go around 5AM which allows me to let the dogs get there exercise off the leash and they won't become distracted by other people or dog.  (:P)= I' m not much of a runner theses days so no distractions is good with me.




Russ and Katy morning Walk

Russ is a lean mean running machine.


Retirement is grate, but you have to keep busy/Jerry

What our Family Will Do For Our Summer 2011 Vacation

Most people that I have shared this story with think we are crazy! But I am sure, you, my fellow RV lovers will think it's a grand plan. My wife Susan and I are taking 5 of our 7 sons across the country for 8 weeks in our 29 ft. Class C Jayco Greyhawk RV. We will leave California, spend time in Texas, Florida, Maryland and exploring the Northeast United States. I am figuring we will drive about 7500 miles and pass through at least 18 states. Okay, now that I write this perhaps we are a little crazy!

"TUCKER TAUGHT ME... Let's Chase Rabbits" by Marie G. Cooney 5/3/11

"TUCKER TAUGHT ME... Let's Chase Rabbits" by Marie G. Cooney    5/3/11

 
Brain Injury Blog by Marie G. Cooney 
Tucker Taught Me… Let’s Chase Rabbits!
May 3, 2011

Sometimes, I get sad during spring. Winter has been too long and too cold. Everything is a muddy mess. And that’s when my father died. One day, it’s bright and cheering. Then it’s dark and gloomy. The birds magically reappear. Then they mysteriously disappear. Sometimes, I don’t exactly know why I am so sad or why the tears come so quickly. I’ve always been a person with a wide range of emotions. But ever since my traumatic brain injuries, I’ve had what is referred to as heightened emotions, while others might have dampened emotions. Almost everyone with a brain injury will struggle with anxiety, depression and other emotional changes.

Tucker, however, loves spring. He runs here and there sniffing out all the terrific smells, and even some icky ones. Like a private detective, he snoops out the trail of scents that others have left behind, and then follows a path of clues that only he recognizes. Like an Olympic runner, Tucker likes to sprint as fast as he can on four paws after squirrels. He doesn’t even care that they always make it up a tree and seem to chitter chatter down to him, “Ha! Ha! You can’t catch me!” Tucker never listens to me, when I try to explain, “No matter how much you bark at them, the squirrels are never going to come down!”

That’s why Tucker loves the “Let’s Chase Rabbits” game most of all during early spring. Tucker and I get more exercise, which is good for both of us. Rabbits, being great magicians, run here, there, and everywhere. They disappear down one hole or another, only to reappear again and again and again, quite miraculously here and there and everywhere! No matter how awful I might have felt before, I always feel better after playing hide and seek with Tucker and his rabbit friends, who love lots of exercise. Exercise is good for everyone, especially if suffering from depression, anxiety and other symptoms of TBI.

One day, rabbits keep popping up here and there and disappearing once again. Each time, Tucker was a sprinter right out of the starting blocks. Each time the magicians disappeared. And then suddenly I saw the most unbelievable sight I’ve ever seen! “NO, Tucker, no!” I yelled. But like the strongest stallion, he was after the rabbit with the carrot. “Tucker, COME!” I screamed. And yet he didn’t. He kept on running and running. “NO, TUCKER NO!” I yelled, “That’s the Easter Bunny!”

Tucker never heard me, but eventually he came back as happy as ever to have had the best chase! I really couldn’t reprimand Tucker, because he did eventually come back. Besides, Tucker did help me find the little child, who was supposed to get the dropped basket. So that made everything all better and him a very good dog!

Life at Gay Campground

It's been a while since I posted, but SO much has been going on ! 

    We have all been so excited about our brand new Clubhouse ! It's going to be soundproofed so we can party hard and let people still have quiet if thats what they like. The stage is amazing and is huge and three feet off the ground ! The DJ equipment we put in is AMAZING ! We are also wired up for killer live sound. Jay and I did a set on the new equipment this weekend and it was so clear and crisp ! This place is going to be a great venue for lots of fun events and shows from live bands to comedy, DJ's, drag shows,  & more ! 

    Bearapalooza was amazing this year. The current stage wasn't in yet the but we used the new clubhouse as a pavilion and set up stages and equipment. All the artists were fantastic. We even and belly dancing bears and burlesque too ! We had almost 150 peopele here, and the Atlanta Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence helped us raise $700 for Tattnall C.A.R.E.S. (a local cancer charity) 

  I am excited about this summer! Our next big thing is our annual Trailer Trash Memorial Day Weekend. Atlanta Armorettes "Amber Divine" and "Knomie Moore" will be joining us and we are working on a DJ dance party and some other activities. One of them will be a showing of Sordid Lives and a costume contest. 

Other little bits of news ...  Jay and I moved up to the house at the front gate and we like it a lot. the house we lived in before has been turned back into a 2 bedroom cabin rental. We also put in a new office where we now check everyone in in comfort.  We got a new staff member named Larry, who has been a big help, and Eduardo and Roy have their friend Cesar here helping out for a while too. There are two new baby goats and the Canadian geese are back and just had some babies! We have a  lot of full-time residents now and we always enjoy doing things together like our Tuesday Potluck Suppers.  With everything being so busy, I have been trying to find time to record some new music. I have been inspired to write new songs with a gospel style and theme, so it will be interesting to see how this next record comes out.  We also did a gig at a local cafe and I think it is going to become weekly.

Well thats whats going on in my world for now.... come see us sometime at Roy's Hideaway !

"Welcome from Marie" blog for Lash and Associates Publishing/Training Inc. 3/8/11

"Welcome from Marie" blog for Lash and Associates Publishing/Training Inc.  3/8/11

I'm blogging for Lash and Associates Publishing/Training. They provide resources for people with brain injuries, family, friends, and professionals. Coming out of the closet years ago prepared me is some ways for living with an invisible disability. Please read and leave comments there and/or here. Thanks. This was my first overview blog. I will be writing about lessons I learned from Tucker, my service dog, as well as other topics. Are there other members out there traveling with service animals?

Brain Injury Blog by Marie Cooney
Welcome from Marie
March 8, 2011

Hi! My name is Marie Cooney, and I am very proud to have the opportunity to start blogging regularly for Lash and Associates Publishing. I have survived, not one, but two Traumatic Brain Injuries. Both happened while I was working as a stagehand in the theater. Most people don’t know how dangerous the theater can be. When something bad happens, it is often very bad. Making “the magic of theater” isn’t always so magical. When a performer gets injured, it’s news. When it’s a stagehand, it’s Work Comp, if you’re lucky.

After my first closed head injury, I self-moderated my return to work. Like many TBI survivors, I was simply trying to survive. I didn’t follow through on retaining a good lawyer and my rights to lost wages, all reasonable and necessary medical care, and retraining if necessary. Like many TBI survivors, my long term relationship ended after my injury. I didn’t believe it when my partner ended our ten year relationship with a two week notice. I was fired as friend and life-partner. What made it even harder is she never explained why.

Once, she said to me, “If you have a brain injury, there is no hope!” I ran upstairs, grabbed a medical report, and shoved it in her hands yelling, “Don’t you dare ever tell me there is no hope!” I have since learned I may have been experiencing the “heightened emotions” of some TBI survivors. Whatever the reason for the breakup, I left almost everything behind. But I fought for Tucker.

My Savior Tucker
