Quality Control

Yes Quality Control, or QC for short is a process by which entities review the quality of all factors involved in production.
O.K. I, Sweet William The Scot, ask where was the inspector for these products!
The after dinner mint on the left is the proper size.  The mints kept getting smaller and smaller in the sack.  My mouth cannot find the mint.
Where is quality control?
Now look at this, each peppermint is wrapped in plastic.  The one on the right is quality.  The middle one has two in the wrapper, one the proper size and the other a little hard gum ball break your teeth and not melt in your mouth quality.  And lastly a broken piece in a plastic wrapper. Where is the rest of that mint?
Where is quality control?
Two envelopes of hot chocolate.  One makes a nice cup.  Well the other one just barely tinted the water.  Serve that cup to someone else. Yuk!
Where is quality control?
Now do you see these two eggs.  Well the one on the left is just long and narrow.  Was the chicken quitting for the day.  Was the chicken dissatisfied with her job.  Was the chicken sneezing when she popped this one out I ask? 
Where is quality control?
Now this is defintely a Puddles' WTF!
I got a box of Iams Biscuits and when Lee opened the box the whole botton third was thin, flat, hard scraps,  leftover bits of biscuits that they over baked.  Lee put one down and I looked at it like HUH!  Oh grab that human that was in charge and bite their leg.
Where is quality control?
Manufacturing Quality Management Course yep they need a course to satisfy their customers.

Pssssssss ~ The 2013 Iditarod started this week.  Lee and I, Sweet William The Scot,  pray that all the dogs and mushers have a safe run.   Team of 16 dogs, of which at least 6 must be on the towline at the finish line, cover the distance of 998 miles in 9–15 days or more. 
The most famous event in the history of Alaskan mushing is the 1925 serum run to Nome, also known as the "Great Race of Mercy." A dipththeria epidemic threatened Nome, especially the Alaska Native children who had no immunity to the "white man's disease", and the nearest quantity of antitoxin was found to be in Anchorage. Since the two available planes were both dismantled and had never been flown in the winter, Governor  Scott Bone approved a safer route. The 20-pound (9.1 kg) cylinder of serum was sent by train 298 miles (480 km) from the southern port of Seward to Nenana, where it was passed just before midnight on January 27 to the first of twenty mushers and more than 100 dogs who relayed the package 674 miles (1,085 km) from Nenana to Nome. The dogs ran in relays, with no dog running over 100 miles (160 km).
Two dogs are remembered out of the many who preformed this feat.  Balto who carried the serum into Nome and Togo who carried the serum 91 miles, the single farthest of any team.


  1. Where is the quality control indeed. MOM's brother is the guy in charge of quality control at Hershey's (well the Hershey's here where we live not the whole company). Holy Dog you should see how seriously he takes his job. Not just because he is like that but the company demands it. His boss told him that if anything leaves the building that is not perfect or just right he would lose his job. YIKES! That is serious quality control I tell you.

  2. How about the gov't? They're making dollar bills that don't buy as much as they used to. Where's the quality control?

  3. We see all sorts of sucky quality control lately.....what is the world coming too....we also like to hear about the great race up north!!
    I love the snow so much that mom and I think I was a husky in another life!

  4. QC where is it? I mean my dinner just gets smaller and smaller and don't get me onto the treats. Well done for raising the issue William. I am going to take matters up with my peeps. Good luck to all those taking part in the Iditarod! Have a marvelous Monday. Mush, mush!
    Best wishes Molly

  5. QC, a lost word, soon to be removed from the dictionary.

    Yo, Mush great snow dogs, do your best, have fun and keep safe!
    Here is another lost item, they used to cover this race on TV, now it's lucky if it makes the news!!! Bah Humbug, come on, this is about us dogs!!!

  6. Excellent analysis of Quality Control. Well done Sweet William! (Mommy laughed so hard about the chicken sneezing the egg out. LOL)

  7. My mum has to do all abouts QC in her graphics coursework, i thinks she should hire you to help out, you sure do know what you're talking abouts!!
    Love Milo :)

  8. I'm sure the chicken was sneezing while popping this egg out BOL Where is the quality control - that's what I ask every day ;o) .... but I would like to work at Hershey's like the Uncle of Goose... maybe they need a taste tester?

  9. OMD look at those biscuits! We are very lucky to have you so we can see the MISTREATMENT of our treats!!!

  10. Beautifully expressed Sweet William, I think you would do a fine job as a Quality Control Officer for any of the corporations who manufacture the products featuring in this post. I suggest you apply to Iams first. And don't undersell yourself.
    Toodle pip!

  11. You have been majorly ripped off! Come to think of it, we are too. We think you should become the QC for Iams...and maybe the taste tester, too.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  12. Baaawwaaahhaa, wez laffin so much and at the comments wez speechless for once.. BOL xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  13. Over-baked biscuits in pieces? This is just not right!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  14. And here I thought we always got the low quality stuff because Mom doesn't know how to pick the right boxes. I think we all need to get together and march in front of the Quality Control office...and pee on their lawn!

  15. Hey Sweet William!
    Wow, those peeps are slipping fur sure! They even have fingers and thumbs and can't do any better than this. humpf Another reason we critter should be in charge. We'd do better fur sure. BOL to the sneezing chicken! BWAR HAR HAR
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  16. You do the coolest stuff! What is with the damn humans anyway? Lazy incompetents, that's what I say! Especially at the Iams factory!
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

  17. Shocking Sweet William...just shocking!! I hope Lee returned that box of treats and that you either got a refund or a fresh box.
    Wally & Sammy

  18. Does QC involve taste-testing...? I'll be in that?

  19. Sweet William, you have raised many good points and we were very impressed (and we had a huge chuckle over the comments about the eggs - was the chicken quitting - we loved that!) -and the thing that concerned us the most was the bones - dear me, that was very bad QC - honestly, those bones are the best things and more care needs to be taken!!!



  20. LOL! I liked the chicken comment too! So funny!

    You are so right! Quality control is a huge problem. :)

  21. Our dogs love 'quantity control!' They like to make sure all get the same number of whatever it is the other is having! :-)

    We love the Iditarod too--We lived in Alaska for 10 years and love the race and hope all stay safe!!

  22. Sweet William
    MOL Quality control seems to be a problem here too. It appears my 1/3 of a cup ration of kibble is more like 1/4 cup...
    I might need your expertise
    Hugs Madi

  23. I love the video thank you so much. I'm going to share it with Finn...her new brother Charley doesn't know how to take steps.
    Hugs Madi your BFFF
    PS...never ever turn your back on a cat!! MOL

  24. Hello Sweet William! It's Oz. Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday. I popped over here and just cracked up! I am your newest follower, my pal. I hope you'll keep visiting me...maybe you could submit your "info" so I could write a Limerick for you during my March challenge?!?
    *high paws and play bows*

  25. Sweet William I think you need to be in charge of all Quality Control products. Those Hoomans are not doing a good job. You have such good eyes to catch all these problems and you can send them back, especially the IAMS treats. Good Reporting.

  26. What a cheek they have! You find those quality control humans and give them a kick up the- oh never mind...
    Pippa :)

  27. Now isn't that something!!! Seems to me that you need to get on this QC thing right away!!!! You tell them you need a better product and you need it fast!!!!
