We have an interspecies video for you today.

We weren't able to post the past few days because t's been crazy around here. When Murphy ('s Law) moved in, he brought all his friends with him.
You already know about our water leak. Friday, the plumber and two helpers dug a hole between the water meter and the house but the leak wasn't there. It was somewhere between the water meter and the far corner of the house. That pipe ran under our dog pen, which would have to be dismantled for them to dig up the back yard. Thankfully, they ran new line under the house instead. Saturday Jan celebrated by washing the car before it gets too cold and we dogs each got a bath too.
And remember the horrible smelling bag of Purina dog food? Jan was afraid to replace it with the same product so she paid more to replace it with Purina ONE. She finally decided Wal-mart must be leaving their pet food sit in a hot, humid environment, and we really needed to switch to a less expensive food, so she went to Ingles and carried home a bag of Purina Dog Chow. Imagine her surprise when she opened the bag the other night and was assailed with the same sickening odor.
She had nothing else to feed us so she ended up walking two blocks to Ingles and carrying home a 20 pound bag of a more expensive dog food in the dark. It was hours before she could breathe without smelling the dog food. She has been unable to get the odor out of the ice chest she stored a plastic bag of the first batch in while waiting to be able to send a sample to Purina for testing. Now she is having to throw out the plastic container she's used for dog food for years because she shoveled a couple of scoops of it out of habit and several days after disinfecting it, it was still smelling up the kitchen.
Two different smelly Purina products from two different stores within two months. Jan is just leaping for joy at her good fortune. (We hope you know we're being facetious.)
Jan contacted Purina with an angry message on their site and since Jan isn't sure whether she can get her money back at Ingles - not to mention she doesn't feel like carrying a 20 pound bag back - Purina has offered to refund the purchase price. And we can't throw it out yet because they want a sample of this food for testing also.
We have also been having computer hassles. Can't uninstall one program or update another. Something about an invalid or wrong Drive E. Don't ask us about Drive E. We think the computer is hallucinating.
This is only a sample of what has been going on since the first of the month. Jan has been so busy she hasn't even had a chance to put the cleaning supplies back under the sink from a week ago when the landlord was here looking for the water leak. She's been spending so many hours at the computer trying to find, fix, contact ....
Basically, we're fine. Just super busy. And we should be back to posting regularly in a day or two.
