Ice Maker Problems

Hi everypuppy and everycat.  It's me, Amber.  Before I get started, I would like to say a big "thank you" to our most favorite Beagles in all of Japan, Jazz and Dixie, for presenting us with this award:

Thank you so much, girls!  We received this a little bit ago and feel very honored to have it presented to us by you, too!

Thank you so much!  Isn't it adorable!?  

Now that I've covered happy things, I have to tell you about a little problem I was having earlier this week.  Our ice maker was running really slow.  I'm not sure what the hold-up was, but I was very concerned.  I LOVE ice and really enjoy having 3 cubes or so every afternoon.  But when I went to use it... it was really slow!  I was afraid it might be broken or something!

Here I am, with the ice maker.

Me and the Ice Maker (and the Magic Cold Box)

I must have stood there forEVER, trying to get ice!  Just when I thought it was broken and I'd wouldn't be able to have ice, it finally delivered.

Thanks, Mom!

Whew, close call!  I had to give Mom the Sad Eyes Look for a REALLY long time before she delivered.  Do any of you have that problem?  



  1. Hi Ammy
    Congratulations on your Awards! We have never tried ice cubes but will ask our mum to let us try them since you love them so much.
    We do have to use our sad eyes a lot though - like when mum comes in from work and we want to go out for our walk. Mum wants to have her lunch first - we can look pathetic!

  2. Khongrats on the pawesome awards!

    The Lsdy Bug one was sooooo khute! I was glad to paw it along!

    I'm soooo glad woo got the icemaker issue worked out!

    My mom read it to Summii's Mummii - she laughed too!

    PeeEssWoo: I still haven't developed a taste fur ice!

  3. Darling Ammy,
    I love ice cubes too!!! So far I've contained my impulses to get my own from the big food safe but only because I've trained my parents to always ask if I want one when they push the majic button.

    Princess Eva and I shared a burger and fries at Sonic. And Momma gave us some of her chicken too!

    Love Brice

  4. You lucky, girl! You have your own private ice making machine. We're impressed.

    And congrats on the awards. You are very deserving.

  5. Hi, Ammy!
    Congratulations on your awards!
    Glad you finally got your ice cube!
    Kisses and hugs

  6. Yes! Sometimes I have to wait ages and ages, but the "cow eyes" work everytime sooner or later I find!

    I lurve ice cubes especially when it is hot!

  7. Hi, Ammy! Mom and dad are safe at home now. They said that they loved visiting with your mom and Zimmie! Wish we could have been there too.

    I love ice! We don't have a special thing on our magic cold box, but mom does ours the old fashioned way. Sometimes, she makes us flavored ones too! one time she made us pumpkin & yogurt cubes, YUMMY!

  8. Congrats on your lovely awards - very nice. And we are glad you got the Mom to put a move on so you could get that ice. We all love ice cubes too.

    Happy Saturday, the OP Pack

  9. Wow! Those awards are pawsome! And I have to look at mom too for ice. She doesn't give it as often as I would prefer to have it.
    Puppy Woos,

  10. Congrads on your awards..
    See good things come to those who wait.

  11. I love ice and I have that problem all the time! Sad eyes always get them!

    Congrats on your awards!


  12. Hm, our mom seems to have an aversion to ice in general. So no, we don't have your problem because we don't have ice in our magic cold box. Glad your patient application of "sad eyes" finally won her over!


  13. You have your own ice maker?? You are one spoiled Sibe. Can I come live with you?


  14. Our humans say they use the ice maker for a totally different purpose. When we absolutely, positively will not come when they call us (ok, like daily), they go the icemaker and start it. We all come sliding in, sitting, waiting for our ice cubes. That's why they say it really is a "magic" box.

  15. Yum...I love ice too! And what a cool vet you have! I am jealous!


  16. Congratulations on your awards! I'm glad you finally got your ice cube. I hope the ice maker starts making them quicker so you don't have to wait so long. Are you the only Sibe in the house that eats them daily?

  17. Great awards, congrats! I have found that it takes lots of practice but the L@@K will always work. Nice to meet all of you! ~Twix

  18. Maybe you should call the manufacturer and book a service call Ammy?

    Congratulations on your awards!

  19. Yes, Ammy, sometimes the humans are very slow. Do you think there is a repair person you can call to speed them up?


  20. Congrats on your awards.....I don't like to chew ice - but I like licking the cold stuff

  21. We have the zact same problem with sausages!
    Congrats on your awards!
    We LOVE that last pic of you, such a pretty snooter!
    Slobbers xx

  22. Woo there Ammy~
    Phew...that sure was a close one! Glad woo got the magic cold box to spit out summ ice fur woo. Woos out to all.
    Your pal,

  23. Congratulations on your awards! I luuv ice, on hot days i get extras, usually 2-3 pieces a day. I especially luv it when mommy puts couples of ice cubes in my water bowl!! It's the best!


  24. Poor Ammy, it appears you had to wait forever to get your ice I love ice cubes too, sometimes our goes weird and shoots a few out across the floor, if I don't spot them, there are puddles and then she thinks we had an accident in the kitchen!I wonder what the problem was, Mom calls it a loose nut on the keyboard... whatever that means...
    Congrats on your awards!

  25. I hope you have a warranty on it, sounds like it might need some repairs soon!

  26. Hi Ammy!!

    I LOVE ice too! glad your icemaker is working again!

    Chasing my tale...

  27. Very cool awards - and good job with the ice maker - sometime we have to push our humans in the right direction - or esle they forget that they are our servants
