Lo! We have success. The company with the big orange sign has come through for us. A contractor is here this very moment re-attaching my toilet to the big gaping hole in the floor of my bathroom.

Also, they will be fixing the ceiling in my living room, which is going to be quite the job because it is a popcorn ceiling and I fully expect the new speckle to match the old speckle, and of course, for them to re-paint the entire ceiling so the new drywall patch can live in blended harmony with the old drywall.

All in all, I am relieved with how cooperative they are being now that they have come out to our house to assess the damage.

I would like to breathe a sigh of relief, but yesterday my dog ate my portable phone and this is all that is left of it.

I have searched high and low for the rest of it, especially for the toxic parts, like the batteries, but there is nothing left to be found.

At this point, I am just waiting for his colon to start ringing.

Poor Samson..and poor you. I am rolling on the floor about the ringing colon comment....pretty funny. I seriously hope the dog is OK...but your phone - well, I think its time for a new one :)

Please leave a message after the Arf.

That is great news about the toilet etc. Bummer about the pooch eating the phone. Dogs are so wierd sometimes.

Oh! I hope he didn't eat the battery!

Glad you are getting your stuff fixed.

Oh no! Poor Samson! I hope he's going to be alright! I'm glad things are going well with that company and I hope Samson doesn't start ringing from any end!

I had a dog who once ate two "D" cell batteries without a problem.

It wasn't until she ate a flea collar that she had issues. (That's why I'll never use a flea collar again).

The question is not what to do whenyour dog rings, but rather, how does one "hang up"?

Glad to hear it's getting fixed, sorry to hear you're sticking with the popcorn, I never want another cieling like that.

I was just watching Pet Er the weird things animals eat, youmight want to go get him some xrays, he could get poisoned if the battery starts to break down. Watch for weirs symptoms. I hope he ends up being ok!

Good thing the company is taking responsibility!!

I can totally relate to the dog thing. I have a dog who eats everything. To date, she has eaten my glasses, a hair dryer, shaving razors, coasters, and ten million pairs of flip-flops. AHHH!

Happy they have come through for you. That's good news.
As for Samson, not so good. Is he known for doing this kind of thing or is this a first?

This tale reminds me of when Dooce's dog ate the corn dog stick and passed it, intact, a few weeks later. Who knows what the droppings will hold? Hope Samson feels OK after such a bizarre meal. :)

It is amazing the damage that they can do!

You know Tammy, this is a first for Samson. The most damage he has done so far is chew a throw cushion from our sofa. I hope this isn't going to become a "thing for him...being jealous with the baby and all.

Don't hold your breath on the big orange until ALL IS SAID AND DONE. LOL. But then again, maybe the Canadian version is more efficent than the American. ;)

Oh wait... they have a new CEO who is bending over for everyone right now to make amends for the previous a$$hole who got billions by default. They will do almost ANYTHING right now to win back customers. Perhaps you'll end up ok after all.

Oh my gosh...I can't believe that's ALL that's left! Eeps. Dogs are NUTS to eat things that are not edible! (My dogs have been guilty of doing this.)
