    This is vulgar language. "الزبدة" here doesn't mean "butter" of course; it's "زبدة الكلام" which means "in short" or "to sum things up."

    The second part means "the Internet at the university is very bad." The speaker here refers to the Internet as "father of a dog". "Father/son of a dog" is an insult used by some Arabs, but I would advise against using it as it's rude and tasteless. As for the letter "ي" attached to "كلب," it's similar to the -y suffix attached to English adjectives in words such as doggy, runny, fidgety, etc.
