We're Back

Thank dogness, we are back after a long absence from cyber-paw space. First our old puter decides to go four paws to the wind. Then we decide to up grade to cable and figure Dad can handle the self install. Arrrrrggggg, no such luck. It was modem doesn't work, get a new modem. That one doesn't work set up an appointment to get hooooman to get it installed.

Well, the installer guy comes to our house. He has problems too. The modem didn't seem to be working right, so he uses one he brought. Still no signal. He asks Dad if he can drill a hole in the wall to run a new connection. Dad says that is okay with him. Now our house was built in 1970, so it is out of tough concrete blocks. The drill he brought has problems, so he has to go to the office and get a new one (BOL). The hole is in the wall, new wire spliced in and still there is a problem. He has to get his tall ladder, go up the telephone pole and replace the line to the house. After all that Dog Dad gave a sigh of relief because the puter is back up, and it was technical issues that prevented him from installing it himself.

In the meanwhile, we missed reading all of your posts and there were a number of things that we wanted to bog on too. Like the crossing the rainbow bridge by our DWB friend Snowball and our good dog friend Lucy in Valdosta, Georgia. Then there was Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and the 35th Anniversary of the sinking of the Edmond Fitzgerald. Then we have a new Dog Friend next door.

Alas, life goes on and we are happy to be back.

It is so good to see you back again and must be so enjoying the cold weather you have been having.

Nice to see you back again. These modern tech things can make humans feel so incompetent sometimes but sometimes it takes special training to figure them out.

We've been thinking about you and hoping all was well!!!

Hope you enjoy the chilly stuff coming down from the north in a few days!

Wirey woofs,

Welcome back! And humans say technology is supposed to make life easier...I guess it dies if you can get it installed :-)

Saw you on my blog and realized that you are back blogging:)
So you had a problem with your Internet connection too...hmmmmm - do you think this connection issue might be contagious? Because we too had a rough time with our connection - and you know why...because they are digging the road in front of our house and every time the earth-mover comes along it moves not just the earth but all the wires and the pipes along!
But I am bark-happy that you are back:)
Wise Wags,

Happy Christmas!

Nothing's ever as easy as it looks, is it? Glad you're back online, anyway.
