Day 523: Good Morning! Welcome to my blog readers who arrived by 302 redirect.

Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

It is my honor to unveil the 1st ever human-language canine interface! Please #FF @K9Quincy!

Quincy
@K9Quincy

ADAM.

@K9Quincy

ADAM. QUINCY LOVES ADAM.

Later that day…
Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

You all know my concerns about the role of Puppy Overload in global warming.

Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

And, as always, Humanity's Best Friends have an important part to play.

Quincy
@K9Quincy

NO, ADAM. QUINCY NOT WANT CLOUD RIDE. NOT WANT.

Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

I'm going to need more duct tape.

The next day…
Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

Today's work involves expanding the ocean's capacity to act as a carbon-sink.

Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

I've modified a wetsuit to protect Quincy, who will use a GPS system to swim out to the eddy.

Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

Go for it, buddy!

Quincy
@K9Quincy

ADAM. SOMETHING IS HERE.

Quincy
@K9Quincy

SOMETHING BIG.

Quincy
@K9Quincy

ADAM, SHARK! ADAM HELP!

Later that week…
Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

Yeah, so we accidentally created a quake and left a big hole in the basement. But you do realize what this mean, right? The GASERS worked! This is a huge breakthrough!

Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

But discovering a fault line in the basement isn't all bad either! It's the perfect application for last fall's side project.

Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

Remember the nanobots?

Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

I set them to replicate last night so we'd have enough. You're gonna love this: Quincy will dig down and direct the nanobots to the magma layer. Shazam! Geothermal energy production!

Then...
Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

Good grief. @K9Quincy was right! There is a mouse in here!

Dr. Xavier Adam
@XAdamPhD

This is bad. Mice and electronics don’t mix.

Quincy
@K9Quincy

ADAM! TOO MANY NANOBOTS! HOLE TOO BIG!
