I took these photos on Friday evening of Wilbur checking out the long row of dog dishes drying on the back deck. The barely one-year old dishwasher quit working on Thursday -- about a week after the warranty expired, of course! -- and so we're back to washing them all by hand. This is the second dishwasher we've had in two years -- both new, both died just after warranty expiration. We've had similar issues with a variety of appliances in recent years -- stoves, washing machines, dryers, you name it.

Our appliance store, Top Furniture in Gorham, New Hampshire, promptly sent their repair tech out on Friday. He hopes to have the parts as early as Monday.
In the meantime, that's a lot of dishes to wash ... and the ones you see in the photo don't include all the small dishes for the little dogs like Wilbur. Alayne had already done those and taken them down to the dog room to dry on a table.
