No Other Way to Say It....Moving Really, REALLY SUCKS! ..A Brief Rant and Update

Hi All!....Great news! Doodle Rescue Collective has a new official HQ at 775 Rifle Camp Road, Woodland Park, NJ.

Bad news....It has been a hellish nightmare getting in here.....

Jeannine and I would like to personally thank all the volunteers primarily Karen and Adrianne for holding down the fort as we have been in the throes of relocation. In spite of our thorough and meticulous planning and preparation in the weeks and even months prior to the actual physical move, the task  has been a struggle riddled with battles on all levels....

From uncooperative landlords, loathsome, disreputable moving companies trying to scam and extort more monies in fees, to the complete and total incompetence of certain internet/phone service providers....The list goes on and on.

All the while doodles have continued to be in need and thanks to all of you and your patience and dedication, we have continued to operate with few disruptions.

Jeannine and I had literally spent hours and hours on the phone with our new internet/phone provider and Comcast our former carrier, for weeks prior to our move to ensure a fluid, smooth and uninterrupted transition of our phone and internet service which had been scheduled to be activated on our move in date.

As of last night, we had been without internet and phone service in this house since last Friday.

One guess as to who is solely responsible for that nightmare.....

I'll give you a hint...It rhymes with "Horizon"....

Don't get me wrong....We admire Verizon for hiring the "clinically brain dead" , giving them an opportunity to be useful productive members of society with jobs and purpose...To torment the innocent paying customers on the other end of the telephone.....But couldn't they at least have the courtesy to provide these human equivalents to pieces of cheap lawn furniture with some training?...How about a manual?

After all. These poor individuals would otherwise be taken off life support and for lack of a better term, "humanely euthanized."

All I have to say to that is to offer one of my favorite lines from the movie "Pet Semetary":.......  

"Sometimes....Dead is Better"

I would have to wish the same towards any moving company, specifically "Great American Van Lines"  as they are nothing more than liars, blood sucking crooks and terrorists who quote you a price on paper and then resort to holding your earthly possessions hostage at your expense BTW, til you pay their additional ransom.....


And we actually expect humans to treat animals with respect?..... 


Now the GREAT news....


4 doodles are in heaven loving their new digs and their acre and 1/2 sized yard.


....And 2 exhausted rescuers are officially back on line and back at work.

Wow that is one beautiful property. And your doods thank you no doubt. Congrats to all who helped, babysat, etc., great job done. Yes moving is hellish and after my last move, I told DH I was going out of here in a pine box. NEVER DOING IT AGAIN.
Congratulations!! Beautiful house and're sure to enjoy!
What a beautiful place you moved to!!!!  Once you are a bit rested, I'll bet you enjoy it A LOT!
Glad the nightmare is over.  Congratulations on the new place - Enjoy, it looks beautiful.
I love the house, ladies!  So cute and what a great yard!  I'm sure once you recover life will be awesome there!  I do miss having Jeannine here, but you two will do wonders with DRC being able to work together without having to Skype every 20 minutes about the next rescue!  Congrats on the new digs!
thanks for sharing, we love you and support all you do!!  the dogs love you too!!!
I LOVE your new place. It doesn't get more "Americana" than a turn of the century craftsman bungalow cottage!  I can't wait to go down to visit!
Give yourselves a break and thank you for all you do!
