exploding doofus

Last night mom and dad went to their friend's house for a little bit. While they were gone Doofus Face Tanner got SO sick. Sicker than I ever got. He threw up on the couch, twice, on the floor in every room in the house and he even threw up on the fire place. He was very sad when mom and dad got home because he even threw up in his house. Mom and Dad were really scared and I was feeling guilty even though I didn't do a thing! Mom gave him a bath and sat with him and gave him little bits of water all night. Today, he is feeling a lot better, has eaten some food and ice cubes and is now happily chewing on his nylabone keys. He took a solid poop this afternoon and you would have thought he crapped out a gold brick the way my mom was so happy. BUT anyway, all is well in here and thank goodness for Bissel carpet cleaner machines. This morning mom found a half eaten rotten grapefruit in the yard, so we are fairly certain that Doofus decided to snack on some gross fruit. He really needs to take some lessons from me on proper yard etiquette. Mom felt bad because she didn't pick them up before he ate them :(

On with some pictures!

ikea duvet cover and new sheets (and new dog bed)
Mom got us this new bed for some reason, I don't understand it because I sleep in MY big bed and they share it with me. As I said, I didn't understand what that stupid thing was for, so the first night mom came looking for me and I was sleeping underneath it. She laughed at me but I am not sure why, it was pretty comfy under there.

this new bed makes me sleepy
Doofus making a doofus face

I almost got joey in the bed for a picture...he was having no part of it
That is about as close as I am getting to Tanner until I am sure he is not going to barf or poop all over the place again. I mean, who throws up on the fireplace?!?!

because THIS is his bed
See, now this is my bed....

Here, I am being dismissed, he is done taking photos
OK thank you for reading, you are all dismissed...

new toys

Mom bought us new toys because we are SOO good. At least I am!

I made the mistake of only buying one
Mom made the mistake of only buying one of these. So I had to drag Doofus around the house with it for a while.

Joey gets tired and lets tanner have it
I let him have it since I am older and more mature. (mom said its because I am getting old and a little bit fat and get tired too easy. Please note that she is the one who brought doofus here and EVERYONE knows the camera adds 3 lbs)

new petstages toy
Doofus looks pretty cute with that toy. He is good at something at least.

crazy fish Toy tanner LOVES
Now THIS thing, I don't know what in the heck mom was thinking. They must have a crazy person aisle at Petco because she finds the strangest stuff there.

fish toy
Of course, Tanner LOVES it

Joey tries the fish toy
I gave this fish thing a little nibble and it is definitely not my kind of toy.

This is a big dog's toy!
But wait, what is this...a sophisticated toy, for older Bostons. I think its saying something to me...

awwe shucks I love you too rope toy
Well, shucks, you are making me blush. I do know that I am the best guy and I have great taste in dog toys...

Muahhh I kiss you rope toy.

I am going to go spend some quality time with my new toy

Tanner does not know how to share.  Here he hogs 2 toys at once
I leave you with Tanner hogging 2 toys at once. What a BRAT!

airing it all out

This weekend I didn't do very much because it was pretty hot outside.

tanner rests while Joey watches for intruders
Mom was watching this soccer stuff and yelling at the TV. I had to watch for anyone sneakin up on my house. Doofus is obviously not a good watch dog!

Tanner doesn't find my magazines exciting
Tanner does this upside down stuff a lot. I would never be so rude as to display my privates in public. He has no tact!

it is 100 degrees outside, but Joey doesn't seem to notice
I did some sunning. It was hot out, so I didn't stay out there too long.

lazy sunday
It was a pretty lazy day...

Here is a video of Tanner getting peanut butter toast. I am in the background trying to communicate to my mom that he truly is the biggest doofus I have ever seen.

HAPPY 4th of July!!!

tired joe

See why I am so tired here:

Tanner is a real pain in my butt*:

*don't worry, Joey's butt itch was just an itch, he is fine :)
