Back before we LEFT  WildBlue... we were Trying to put up another Video...    This is ERNIE... playing with Sarge's Paw Treat Dispenser.

paws crossed that this one works...    It took FUREVER to load Yesterday's video.   62 MINS. to be exact.   GRRRRRRRRR    We used Mozilla FireFox yesterday and fur this one we used Chrome...    Just to see if there was any difference in the Speed at which they would load.   This one took...37 mins.    SIGH    
     We are HOPING that Verizon will be MUCH Faster and MORE RELIABLE than WildBlue.   And that a video download will never again take over an hour do put up for you.  
  We also are hoping that you sent us a quick email so that we could get you into our list of Contacts...     here is our new addy      frankiefurterprice(at)gmail(dot)com

Amber DaWeenie said...

Oh you look soooooo cute and worth the long wait. Butt....that's kerazy! What's up with Blogger anyway!

Lovable Lily said...

Wow, that is a long, long time! But it was well worth it so we could see Ernie trying the dispenser.

Did he really walk away from it without getting the treats?

Hey Ernst!
Wow, you look great buddy! The video is fine and you did a good job at your first time with that treat toy. I can even hear music in the background. BOL
BTW: We don't mind if it takes Mamaw a long time to load these! It's worth it to us! :)
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Your treat dispenser looks like a lot of fun.
We have Clear internet and it's real fast for us. Not sure if it's available where you are. We have had it for 2 years and it has never crashed or been slow.

Murphy said...

It worked good. Did you lower the resolution on the video so it would load faster? That is what we do.

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Ernie, you gave up much too quickly!

Now that is entertainment right there! Never give up or in.

Marg said...

Ernie, that looks like a great toy. Guess you didn't like it very much but that is OK. Ask Mom if she has Windows. We used Windows movie maker to download our videos and then you can put them on UTube. Just a suggestion. Take care.

It's just not right that it takes a video of this length so long to load! Our paws are crossed that Verizon is a whole lot faster, Frankie and Ernie!

Love ya lots
Mitch and Molly

The Websters said...

We hope your internet gets better too!!

You're going to have so so so much fun at the Pet Expo!

Video worked great...when is the big switchover to Verizon? Soon I hope for your sanity's sake

Jan's Funny Farm said...

An hour to upload a youtube video? That is beyond slow service.

Why was Ernie playing with Sarge's dispenser? Does Sarge live there?

scotsmad said...

Ernie is right....treats should just be handed to you. After a busy day of squirrel watching, digging, hiding toys and bones keeping the peeps happy, you don't want to work.
Just sayin'.

We ALWAYS have trouble downloading videos. You're so patient to wait for 62 minutes. We usually can't see most videos, but yours have played with no problems.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Dougall-the-Scottie said...

Wow... You're intermuts do need fixing!

Bunk said...

Wow that's a long load time! We love your videos though so thank you for putting in the effort.

Ruby said...

Marg is right Frankie, you should gets your own YouTube account, down load them there, then you can link it to your bloggie ~ Ma found this soooooo much easier and FASTER than tryin' to use Blogger's video down load. Give it a try, see if it works better for you.
I did love the video!! Very good Ernie ~ I hopes you got extra treaties for that!
