So, allow me to say how very intently blogger blows when it comes to posting images lately. It was so much better in pre-Google era. Here is Doglet's birthday photo, one day late, wisely farmed out to a third party image-hosting outfit. Please to enjoy.

And speaking of outfits, yes, I know this space-dog get-up is beneath her butch dignity, and you can kinda see her hurling eyeball-daggers at me. Sorry, doglet. Everyone knows what a tough girl you are. No one will hold that sparkly pink against you. They'll blame me.

Oh, and while I'm on the subject of technical difficulties, blogger's image issues pale in comparison to the suckitude of SBC/ Southwestern Bell/ A T & T (or whatever they are calling themselves this week)'s for-shit-DSL.

If the DSL is working my computer is on the fritz. If I get a Mac, that craps out after about 5 minutes. I get a machine that works, finally, and then the DSL is unreliable. I'm thinking a plot is afoot. Now I'm waiting for the cable company to switch my internet over so I'll have access at home again.

What doesn't make sense is I'm not even surfing the web and looking at porn and opening risky attachments in email - how does my system keep getting fried? Like I said, it's a conspiracy.

Good plan using a third party image hoster. Blogger is making me want to smash my head repeatedly against a brick wall lately.

Must be some sort of vibe you're sending out there to the universe. Mushy's got some weird shit showin' up on his site too. Me, it's just oodles of spam. Just flashed on that Monty Python spam song. Ya know.

Hey, doglet is looking pretty good for a fifteen year old! My male dog was looking at her with great interest....she's still got it!

Meg Nakagawa said...

Love George's comment!

This morning I was cursing at Blogger rather loudly, still in my PJ's, at around 10AM, when I noticed I wasn't even getting emails... Just for today, it was Telecom NZ (owned by Canadian Telecom), not Blogger, in my case. I'll wait until tomorrow to resume complaining about Blogger, I think.

tony said...

Aww...how cute. She looks like the RCA dog Nipper from the planet, Al U Minium.

tony said...

Oh, and I am an excellent "Blogger to Wordpress" migration expert! For a minimal fee, of course!

Suzanne said...

It was bad karma coming back to you after putting your dog in that pink sparkly outfit! ha ha!

Myron said...

Poor Doglet. That's more than a girl should have to endure.

Ahhh, Blogger and it's hissy-fits. At least it's free.

HollyB said...

She most definitely does NOT look her age, IF she is 15 d-o-g years.She looks more like 4 years old, just a pup really! What an amazing girl!

Kelly said...

Wow doglet! What a fantastic outfit! Is it Chanel?

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

Blogger was giving me an attitude today, too.

I'm always afraid they've cancelled my blog due to objectionable material.

Dick said...

Kind of a Star Trek Doglet.

Now, I wonder if thing will eat my comment like it's done the last two times....

hoosierboy said...

I am channelling the Doglette right now and she says she wants to kick your butt for making her wear this. She says she is too old and dignified to endure this abuse. Take it off...

barbara - well, i'm hoping switching to cable internet will help with my blogger issues

fathairybastard - Spam spam spam spam Spam! That's funny,all weekend I kept thinking of fried spam sandwiches

george - she's a sexy bitch!

meg - yeah, george is funny - I hope he pipes up some more in future. Well, don't let blogger off the hook too easily - they've got a lot to account for

tony - she DOES look like Nipper - I think Nipper was the same breed - so cute when she cocks her head like that, too.

suzanne, well, actually, me putting her in the pink sparkly outfit was Me paying HER back for all her shenanigans.

myron - it WAS cruel of me, wasn't it?

holly b - she does look good. She's my little lamb

kelly - Not Chanel, it's Bow-lentino.

lightning bug's butt - they'd be crazy to cancel your blog - and they'd have a revolt on their hands if they did, I think.

big dick - yeah, she's the starlight express edition.

hoosierboy - I took it off immediately after the picture, and you read her mind perfectly - she was NOT a happy camper.
