Life with Daisy...

 

So, two weeks ago, I took Daisy and Elvis for their evening walk --

-- business as usual, pretty much.

Daisy, at left, is Elvis' buddy, and when they came back in, they had themselves a little hoe-down on the sofa --

-- unfortunately, that was the one night I decided to "bring work home" and leave my laptop on the table by the sofa --


-- within 10 seconds, this was the display on my laptop --

:|


Specifically, in the red circle was where Daisy donkey-kicked the display, shattering it --

-- she didn't know any different, but it certainly made a difference!

After whining like a little girl, I got my senses and figured to order a new display, over buying a new laptop --

-- everything I do for spbr is on this laptop, and buying a new one didn't seem too attractive -- two years later, they still make the same one -- !!


Also, the local "computer shop" wanted $100 labor to put it in --

-- come on, we're not talking about anything too technical here, so I ordered the display myself, and took my computer apart --


-- this is where the display should be -- !!

And within 10 minutes, we're back in business --

-- everything being all set -- with me, saving $100 labor for the new screen, and over $2,000 for a new laptop -- !!


Accidents happen, and I learned my lesson from this --

-- DON'T bring work home -- haha -- !!

Seriously though, with these pups there are so many smart choices that can be made to prevent big problems --

-- crating them when unattended, knowing their responses to people and dogs publicly, and acting accordingly to protect you and your dog, always supervising them with kids and realizing they ARE dogs, and if allowed to, they will show signs of prey drive, etc --

-- it's all a management question, really, and unfortunately, a lot of it is done through learning.

Anyway, Daisy can go back to her partying, and although this was a $500 "lesson" (OUCH!), no-one got hurt and it is no longer even an issue!
