Hold Your Fire


So my Human finally figured out what that weird Friday morning smell was. I smelled it on Saturday afternoon and went over to tell the surge protector that it was stupid. Then that stupid surge protector decided to catch on fire!

My Human noticed the orange flames shooting out of it and she was able to take care of the situation without damage to anything other than the surge protector and a plug. Thing definitely could have been worse, and we are all happy that the fire didn't start until Saturday afternoon.

My Human has decided to replace the functioning surge protectors will better quality ones. She's been reading about them and found a couple of models that look promising. One of them even has a smoke detector attached so that it shuts down if it senses smoke.

This is what my Human thinks may have happened: We had a bit of a flood in our house when there was a big rain storm. The surge protector got moist. As it turns out, that's a bad thing. Also,somedog may have peed on it. But I'm not saying anything about that.

We've learned a few things:

1. Surge strips don't necessarily turn off if they are moist.
2. They also don't necessarily shut off if they are on fire.
3. You shouldn't use the same surge protector for years and years.
4. You can find more tips here: Power Strip Safety.

I've decided that I'm going to be our pack's designated Fire Marshal now.

Roughin' It


My Human woke up around 4am and found a very weird smell in the house. It was kind of a chemical/plastic smell. While we were outside delivering p-mail, my Human was inside sniffing things. As you all know, humans don't have as refined a sniffer as we do. My Human never figured out what the smell was and it went away anyway.

Then it was time for her to hose herself off before she went to that place she calls "work." After she was in the tub, she noticed that Roo Roo had picked up something that looked like a Tylenol. So my Human had to get out of the tub and chase after Rooie. My Human escorted Roo into the bathroom and had her drink some hydrogen peroxide so she'd horka up the pill. Turned out it wasn't a Tylenol after all but a bit of paper.

Eventually my Human was ready to go to work. So she escorted me and Rooie to our respective boxes. My Human then proceeded to give herself a black eye on a quart water bottle she was using to fill Rooie's water bowl. Yeah, I have no clue how my Human managed to do that, but she did. And now she has a nice shiner below her left eye.

Finally, when my Human got home she discovered that either Lex, Meepie, or Fargo had destroyed a catalog. Shredded paper everywhere!

All in all, it was a very good day.

In the mean time, my Human has promised me that she will shoot a video of me yelling at Lex soon. I will post that when it is available.

But for the time being, here is a Roo Roo movie:

Q Thing


My new friend Suzy Sheltie posted about this QR Code generator. I decided to give it a whirl. So, instead of my name or blog URL, I decided to post one of our favorite jokes:
