I am devastated. I can’t believe that their Managing Director Bart Fromuth was on here just 32 days ago singing the praises of Resident Power when he must have known that they had issues, with PNE, my supplier.

At least we now know the numbers. Resident Power or PNE  only had 8,500 customers!

Yes, I had a letter saying we are being switched. Too late.

I can’t believe I got sucked in. This is diabolical. I had said all along that: ‘if it was a scam, I wasn’t sure what the angle was‘. I am now mad. Not sure what PSNH will charge us. I know this will end up costing me money. I am sure PSNH will charge me higher rates for some of this. Plus the hassle. Last thing I needed right now.

We just signed up with ENH Power. You have to do it quick, before your next meter reading.

I hate when I get mugged. I was not expecting this. I should have been wary. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is not true.

Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinic Mugged Me — June 30, 2009.

Deanna got this today. She had been waiting for it for a week.

This is beyond the pale.

This is not funny. Don’t they have her records right in front of them.

Her name like mine is atypical. But, there is no excuse for this type of slovenly work.

Deanna is much more patient, forgiving and mellow than I am — as she needs to be married to me. But, she is MAD. When she is mad, watch out.

I am laughing. I said that they had clowns in Concord. QED.

Pembroke Animal Hospital: Pretty Impressive. In-And-Out. Was Costly, But Probably The Norm.

The Alton Vets … — Jan. 31, 2013.

Dr. Christina Murdock grew up in Litchfield, NH. She graduated from Colorado State University in 2007. She practices large and small animal medicine with a focus on soft tissue surgery, internal medicine and small ruminants. Her four legged family includes a greyhound named Yellow, an Italian greyhound named Leo, a minx cat named Rocky and a calico cat named Phoebe.

After I stormed out, in high high dudgeon, from the Alton Vets, on January 31, stating ‘never coming back here again‘, we had to find a new vet.

I had heard about Pembroke, I think from the farm/stable, ‘ClearView‘ in Barnstead where Devanee took horse riding lessons for awhile. Deanna checked it out on Facebook. All she heard was glowing praise. Number of folks we knew in Alton appeared to be using them.

Deanna called up and enrolled with them. Then she sent a letter to the vets at Alton asking for the records to be sent to Pembroke. To their credit they did that promptly.

We had our first appointment today. It is on the far side of Concord. Not hard to get to. I think it took us 35 minutes. We got there just before 11:10 am, for a 11:15 appointment.

Here is the AMAZING thing, we were out of there, in the van, both Goldens having got their shots, a total of 7, and both having blood drawn for flea-borne disease testing (at $45 a pop). 30 minutes, in-and-out! At Alton we will still be twiddling our thumbs in the waiting room.

Not sure whether we got preferential, atypical service because it was our first visit and they wanted to create a good impression. They seem slick enough and very friendly.

We saw Dr. Christina Murdock. She is young and obviously loves dogs. She kissed ours on their heads. I was impressed. Good kennel side manners, I guess.

I was kind of shell shocked by the bill, but Deanna assures me that it is par for course — though it sure sounds like an expensive course to me. 7 shots, $90 for tests (that I was not that keen on though I relented). It came to $293 or $294. I know keeping two Goldens is an expensive hobby, but how do people manage to pay vets bills like this?

But, we were happy with the service. If we factor in the minimum one hour we are usually kept waiting at Alton, time wise this was not bad. We had to go to Concord anyway. Nice day. Got a few things done.
