Dogs Make Horrible Geeks

I was set to tell y’all about a Vista tip I uncovered yesterday… when I heard Ponzi shrieking from two floors below. Sounded as though she had hurt herself. I dropped the mouse and flew to the basement (in a manner of speaking, as I’m only human and cannot truly fly). I found her leaning over a small carpet stain situated directly in front of our entertainment center.

“Wicket [our dog] peed on the Xbox 360!”

She was just getting ready to watch a movie, when one of our puppies decided to relieve himself on the faceplate of a console we rarely use. I mean, was he really that jealous? For Christmas, Wicket had a Playstation 3 on his wish list (and we didn’t get one for him, as I think it’s greatly overpriced – and Sony doesn’t design controllers to accomodate dog paws). He’s never really done that before, that I know of – and he usually waits until we take him outside.

“I don’t know what got into him!”

Dogs will be dogs, but they make horrible geeks. Just when I was about to set him up with his own blog, he goes and does something this irresponsible. Pixie was dumbfounded as well; she likes playing Zuma when we’re not at home. I guess the moral of the story is: (a) don’t put your Xbox 360 near the floor; (b) don’t let your dog with a full bladder near an Xbox 360; and (c) remember what you said about Wicket when you first got him (“He’s full of p*** and vinegar”).
