Hi, everypup, everycat, everyhammie, bear and hooman! It's me, Poppy! Just in case you don't recognize me, this is my deer face. See my sticky uppy ears? Mom says I look like this a lot! Patches is pacing the floor because of all the HBO words that have been flying around our house, lately! Our internet, TV and telephone were all out for THREE whole days. We felt like we were isolated from the whole world! It's a good thing our mom and dad have cell phones! Right now, they are not at all happy with stoopid Comcast! On Tuesday morning, everything went out and when our mom tried to call them, she was on "hold" like forever! She finally said some HBO words and gave up trying to call on Tuesday. She called really, really early on Wednesday and they said they would have someone out here THAT day. Yeah, right! When it got to be afternoon and they hadn't come yet, Mom called again. They couldn't promise they would be here on Wednesday. (Insert more HBO words HERE).
Patches said she just couldn't believe it! She was tired of watching Toby Keith videos everynight! Finally, on Thursday, around 5 p.m., the Comcast guy showed up. He said that some idiot had put in a new cable line for us, but he hooked it up wrong so the signal was coming to the house and then going right back to the street! Now, there were even MORE HBO words flying because no one told us they were putting in a new cable line! If they had told us, we would have known what the problem was right away! Also, our mom is really pi*sed off because they told us that if we switched to Comcast phone service, the phone wouldn't go out if the cable did. More lies! Anyway, it's all fixed now! Thank doG!
I'm sure most of you remember Patches telling you that our mom and Aunt Wendy were going to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Well, they went last Tuesday and had a really great tour and a very nice lunch with really great peoples! The vet school was a lot smaller than they expected, but UGA is hoping to get funding to build a new facility soon! They saw some peoples that were preparing to do surgery on a white rabbit and a really big cat. They didn't see the actual surgeries, just the prep! They also got to see the large animal hospital where there were lots of horsies. They even saw one miniature horsie!
Our mom said it was a really great day! They even got to see Miss Barbara and Del again since they went on the tour too. I'm sure you remember them from when Mom and Aunt Wendy went to Athens to meet up with the Airedale Rescue peoples.
On the way home, they stopped at a UGA bookstore and our mom bought lots of stuffs to sell on that Ebay place. She found lots of stuffs on sale! Woohoo! It's a good thing, 'cause she still hasn't found a real job yet!
Well, everybuddy, I'm going to watch some TV, now, since we can actually see stuff other than videos! Oh, yeah...and the HBO words have stopped!
Poppy, Penny & Patches
