Noooooooooooo...

*

I worked today.  I had planned to cook dinner, but just didn't have it in me.  Carey was willing to finish up leftovers, and I made myself a ham sandwich.

We were eating in the living room (yeah, we're classy like that), and temptation overcame Rudy.  He grabbed the hammy side of my sammy and took off.  Carey ran after him while I tried to steady my plate.  I saved the plate; unfortunately my Kindle fell to the floor.  It may have survived the first blow, but Rudy made another pass and it fell again.

It was chaos, I tell ya.

Kindle screen is broken, which means it is entirely unable to function.   I am absolutely dejected.  I love my old version of Kindle which is no longer made.  The search has begun for a rebuild.

And basically I made do with half of a lettuce sandwich for supper.  I didn't even check it for doggy cooties before I ate it...just too d@%n tired and frustrated to care.

Poor Rudy.  At his last vet visit he heard that old familiar tune we all hate..."he could stand to lose a little weight."  Well, he has done very well with a little less supper and a little more exercise, and it seems he is now fed up with not being fed up, when I clearly could stand to follow the same advice.  😕


*no dogs were harmed in the making of this blog post...or in its triggering events.  The photo is actually from a few weeks ago, I just think he looks sad in it.  Come to think of it, he looks a little pudgy in it too.  Maybe it was right after he heard the vets edict.

  2. LOL! My dog ate a piece of cranberry nut bread with goat cheese on it a few days ago while I took a bathroom break and she is not on a diet. I try to remind myself that it means she would be a good survivor if she got lost and had to scavenge.

  3. Can't they just replace the screen?

    1. Last time this happened (sadly, just last November?) I found instructions on Youtube to replace screen. This time I was thinking that I would give that a try, but unlike last time I'm not finding any replacement screens available anywhere online.

      But you've reminded me that maybe I should check around locally to see if there are any electronics repair places that might be able to do it. Thx! :)

  4. Sure hope you can find a way to get your Kindle repaired or rebuilt. I'm notorious for wanting to hang on to my older model stuff as long as possible. I just never like the new stuff as much.

    Poor Rudy...being on a diet is hard!

    1. I'm sure I will, or I guess I will just have to adapt. LOL Over the years, my Kindle Keyboard has been such a workhorse, that I have never really worried about it getting damaged. Now breaking two within six months, I have a feeling I am going to be paranoid.

  5. Oh dear! Poor Rudy. And poor you! I hope you can get the Kindle repaired. Is Rudy still "in the doghouse?"

    1. At the moment he is lying across my legs on the recliner foot rest. :) His cuteness factor saves him from all manner of ill will.

  6. Oh my! Sorry about your Kindle, but the ham snatching scenario had me laughing out loud. Sorry!

    1. Actually, when I remember his movements in the instant he realized that it was within his grasp, I have to laugh too. :)
