We don’t appreciate


until the air conditioner

condenser breaks when it’s

40 degrees* out

because dog pee

corroded the evaporator coil.

The steaming

house is broken

and dogs get more expensive

every day.



*(that’s 104 if you speak Fahrenheit).


(good thing we love them, eh?)

    We speak Centigrade!! I was wondering why you needed air-conditioning at 40 Fahrenheit!

    Dogs can be quite expensive. Had to keep our puppy from tearing at an armchair yesterday. 😛 He thinks everything is a toy but he will learn eventually.
