Puppies Chew Things
August 22, 2009

Puppies are fun. They're cute. They can be snuggly. They ADORE you.

They also make messes and, if they are dachshund puppies, they are adorably curious about everything.

Including my very happy Panasonic Slimz headphones that I use to listen to my Sleepmaker Storms app to go to sleep at night because they're very low profile and great quality. Tieg the dachshund puppy is very curious about these weird things I put over my ears and especially that interesting looking thing at the end that goes into that black glassy thing.

He chewed the headphone plug off.

Had he chewed the cord in half, I could have just spliced it together. But nooooo, he had to chew the plug freaking off.

So, with a little help from Chris Metcalf, I decided to salvage my relatively expensive headphones.

I snagged the soldering iron, headed out to Radio Shack for a gold headphone plug and began my task early this afternoon.

The freaking wires would NOT stay where I put them, the soldering iron had a tip way too wide for working with electronics ... but a ridiculous amount of time later I have functioning headphones again. I will probably get another headphone plug and a soldering iron with a very fine tip to it and do it again.

For now, I'll remember to pick up the headphones ... and keep a closer eye on the Wee Dangerous Tieg's whereabouts.

You know I have to ask... does he have good 'taste' in music?

I slay myself! HA!

I'm impressed with your vast, and sundry, skills.
