Blind Faith

Roscoe simply wanted to get a better view of the outdoor happenings, but his blind faith wasn’t rewarded as he expected.

Why did it grab me? - blind faith
Why did it grab me?

Poor Roscoe loves his observation window. He can watch walkers pass the house, squirrels scamper in the yard, and even our neighbor canines in their yards. When he tried to get a closer look, however, things went terribly wrong. His nose touched the glass and the blinds slipped over his head. Hu-Dad had to rescue him (while attempting to contain snickering). Who knew window treatments can sometimes fight back?

    Can you imagine if it had been Boom tangled in the evil blinds? ? chaos & blinds crashing to the floor! ?

    I hope Roscoe wasn’t traumatized by the evil blinds.

    When I didn’t see the email, I just went straight to the website. Would a text-only email get around the charges?

      Thanks, but the format of the email isn’t the challenge. It’s the database of subscribers, who wants what email, and compliance with privacy and SPAM laws. Easiest to just pay a service to handle it… as long as they handle it.

    AAWW Poor Roscoe!! Hey Hu-Dad-I had to go to the Facebook page to find the post. I guess the emails were held up? I checked the spam folder and nope.

    I laughed to think poor Roscoe had an argument with the blinds!!!!!

      Thanks for finding us. Our email newsletter service announced a dramatic price increase to us two days ago. So, of course, their sending failed this morning. We have a “critical” help desk ticket open with them. Hopefully, they treat it as such.\

      Sigh. Really, humans should just let canines rule the world.

        That’s a real shame. So many of us look forward to the emails. YEP-let the canines rule!!!!!!! Thanks for the update!
