Blue Has Been The Air!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Now, we missed yesterdays blog, it wasn't our fault, honest!

You see, Old Two Legs got us all home safe and sound, then he got the ferrets sorted back into their cages and decided to have a look at the emails that have come in while we have been away.

He shouldn't have done that 'cos he got the surprise of his life!

It seems that someone has hacked his email address and has been sending thousands of spam emails all over the world!

What was worse, there were thousands being bounced back to OTL's mail box as 'Undeliverable'!

Wot was worse, his ISP (Internet Service Provider) shut down his account because of the large amount of messages being sent!

Yesterday, right up until ten past nine, he was at his desk trying to sort it all out. New passwords, new SMTP stuff and loads of technical stuff we have never heard of!

This morning when he fired up the system there were about twenty bounced emails in his box, so he got rid of them and tonight we are crossing our claws that he has managed to clear it all up!

The new computer is running Windows 10 and for some reason OTL is not happy with the security so that has been unplugged and he is back on the old computer that got a 'Hardware Upgrade' (A new tin box and a bigger power supply!)

Holly Chops has not been too happy today, she has something that makes her ear itchy and OTL thinks it may have been the shampoo he used when Holly had her hair cut at the college. Still, it is being washed out and cleaned, not that there is any wax or that but OTL keeps sloshing warm water in her ear and drying it.

Now, because it makes her ear wet and OTL dries it the best he can, to make sure there is nothing else in there, like ear mites, he has brushed some stuff called 'Thornit Powder' which is supposed to help get rid of the creepy crawlies.

There is one small problem, it sniffs terrible! Holly can't stand the stuff and keeps trying to brush it out with her back paw!

OTL says it won't get better if she keeps scratching, so he has devised a hat for Holly, made from a thing he wears when we are in Scotland, to keep the insects and Midges away from his neck!

Holly is not a Happy Puppy, I mean, wot does she look like?
 She was kept on the cushion by OTL and finally she fell asleep only to wake up and not scratch her ear, mainly because OTL had just got a cup of tea and a couple of Choc Chip Cookies!

Not sure wot we got for dinner tonight but OTL has got green stuff!

We reckon he could end up wasting away!

See you all tomorrow!
