Dogs are not Good Computer Engineers!

This is going to be a quick blog today because I am out at Community Council this evening and will not have much time later.

The day started on a down after our normal doggie breakfast routine because the puter was saying “no” and clearly the router was being difficult.  I did s few network changes in the Control Panel with no difference so next step was to crawl under my wee computer desk and reboot the router.

Pup decided he would help … not!  First of all I could not get him out from under the desk (he likes to use it like a cave and since I have a kneeling chair my feet don’t use the space so that is usually okay.  Every time I coaxed him out and reached for the router his nose reappeared.  So I used my natural resources – ladies sometimes it is a good thing to have a wide bottom!  I had just unplugged the router and was counting to 30 to make sure I left it long enough before reconnecting when I got bit on my bum! erm ladies sometimes it is a less good thing to have a wide bottom 🙂

It was only a playful bite and not painful but t made me jump so I banged my head on the glass desk and dropped the lead.  This allowed a small furry person to rejoin me under the desk and proceed to start helping me by tugging on the leads to see which was the one with a free end.

Eventually got him out, found the right lead and reconnected the router … and it all worked.  It took me around 10 minutes when it should have taken 2.

Then a little later I decided that I would just take Pup on the bus to the town centre for a little socialisation since I had to buy a ticket anyway to go to Forfar in the afternoon.  I shut Dog on his bed with a treat and had to manually carry Pup away to stop him stealing.  I got Pup to the door and asked him to hup with which he ran back and let Dog out.  After three repeats of this Dog was beside himself with frustration, as was I so Pup got crated and I went out on my own leaving the two of them fussing.  I went up onto Kirrie Hill and took photos:

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
