    Shamu eased Muttly's fall!

    Muttly sent me a PM saying that his new Shamu needed repair. I assumed that it was damaged when his hammock failed, and dumped him on the ground. His explanation of what really happened is below. I thought it was a hilarious testimonial, and Muttly gave me permission to post it here.

These repairs will be a source of pride. Just imaginge if this had been a regular down-filled bag. I shudder thinking about it. This is why I wanted this UQ!
    I like to say that Molly Mac Gear is nearly indestructible... but how do you design for potential Pit Bull attacks?

    One can almost hear the pit bull assault on the Shamu.

    Growl, pull, shake, growl . . . pause ( what ? ) . . . growl !

    By the way, the pit bull is black and white so once the repairs are done, Kim says she is going to re-christen the UQ the pit bull edition.

    Man, that dawg is as dumb as a box of rocks.

    Oh, wow. I just got it. Muttly's UQ got bit by a dog.

    Ironic, ain't it?
