We're Back! And...Do Some Pet Products Backfire?

First, we wanted to briefly let you know why we were offline since last Friday...O.K., we won't go into the horrible details of Parental Unit spending 6 hours on the phone on Friday with Google (from whom she purchases our domain name), many hours furiously writing e-mails over the weekend, and over an hour this morning with Google tech support yet again. Suffice it to say that she now personally knows every Google "support" employee by name, and our blog is now up and running. It had something to do with not setting our account to auto-renew, and not being able to access her Administrative console to do so-Google's fault via broken links that led nowhere! By the way, did you know that contacting Google tech support is tantamount to the search for the Holy Grail? Just sayin'...

We're both relieved and super glad to be back-we missed ya!

  Now on to today's topic, straight from a recent (and funny) article in the business section of The New York Times, that discusses the pros, and sometimes cons, of specialized pet products. You know that we're fans of so many of the new pet products that seem to pop up daily, because we believe that human ingenuity along with an artists' design skills have solved many a problem through great design, for both pets and you humans. But the bottom line is: What works for one pet may be a disaster for another, so if you see a new product and it's not too far-fetched or too expensive, try it out-it usually can't hurt.

Glad all is sorted out now. We had a problem with our internet provider that went on and on until the tech help guy felt so sorry for us he gave us the CEOs secret direct line. The pit bull secretary was furious we got through but hey ho half an hour later problem sorted. There you go it is who you know or rather nice tech guy. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly
