what does it mean when your right palm is itchy? money coming in or going out?

mine is really itchy today...but it is itching on a dog bite scar so maybe it has nothing to do with money, maybe I am going to get bitten again? shit..i hope not!
luna goes in on Thursday for her spay..i am not looking forward to it, I think it may be just about as much fun getting her into the vet as it is to take odie in. oh freaking yay.
pac the retired RCMP service dog is confirmed and he arrives here also on Thursday. this is going to be an entirely new kind of helping him settle kind of thing..he is not just losing what he believes are his home and family, he is losing his job and his place in the world. I can't imagine that this will be anywhere even close to easy for him. I have some ideas floating around in my head more uniquely specific to him on how to help soften the blow. I do however think that he is an emotionally mature enough and positive thinking enough dog to get there with a bit of thoughtful and respectful help.
apparently we are having a bit of a problem with barnyard fencing manners while the dogs are going for their morning run..luna is the ringleader in this. why the other dogs even listen and follow the suit of someone as young and stupid as her is totally beyond me but they do. they all get caught up in her hysterical I am queen shit scary-ness and follow right along. I am planning on doing the morning walks on Thursday and Friday to take them all down a few half dozen notches....my fence, my farm, my rules....sometimes luna, the real boss IS way smarter than you.
whatever..no one in their right K9 mind actually wants luna-cy to run the farm..lol..they don't even like her that much. they just think what she is doing at that particular moment is kind of exciting, fun and cool.
not really.... and time that they learned.
sometimes looking after a ton of dogs is just like babysitting a ton of kids. except....you are not allowed to yell, chase, bang loud and noisy buckets at fences and scare the shit out of kids to make them stop being stupid...too bad, it works really quite fine with the dogs! most of them will never go near that fence again.
and please don't get on me about positive training methods..i don't have 3 months to teach a bunch of moronic dogs not to be stupid..i only have 2 days before I go back to work.
I think since it only took them one day to figure out they could actually do this...it should only take two days at the most to convince them that they really can't.
anyway..that is my plan...will let you know if it works.
ok..gotta go..the dogs are settled and I have things to do.
