mary mary quite contrary

Just a brief update from the Valley of the Sun in Scottsdale Arizona. It is still HOT and Rog is still HERE. So what that boils down to, is life is sucking pretty bad right now.

But I still love you!
Tanner and Rog do everything together. On Monday when Rog's dad shows up Doofus is going to have a breakdown. Maybe, if Tanner is SO sad about it, mom and dad will give Doofus to Rog's dad and I will be the king of the castle again! I need to work on this plan over the next two days...

mom, can we get some new grass?
Another thing I need to discuss with mom and dad is the status of our grass. They say this is a natural thing in the fall, that the grass gets all dead and uncomfortable. I think they should think about purchasing some of that fake golf putting greens then, I can't live like this.

terriers in the sun
This is a very rare photographic capture made by my mom. She actually got a picture where Tanner and Rog are not glued to each other's sides. He must be off crapping or something.

I tried to get a nice shot
Ah, here he comes...

Look at those two, its enough to make ya barf.

So this photo may not interest you at all seeing as how I am not in it, but let me tell you what is going on here. My mom (who I think I have implied before might be a teeny tiny bit crazy) went and BOUGHT dirt, and then bought containers to put it in. She then pours water all over it every day for some unknown reason. But here is the kicker, she bought this dirt yet I am not allowed to bury toys in it, sniff it, eat it OR pee on it??? I am not sure what is so magical about this dirt but whatever that green stuff is that comes out of it is apparently also off limits. This woman needs an evaluation or an investigation from the ASPCA. Is not everything in this backyard mine to pee on and/or eat?

what are you looking at??
Am I wrong people?!?!?!

home sweet home??

So ever since Rog got here, I have had no peace at all.

bitey face!
This goes on ALL night.

joey is soooo over it
I try to get my required amount of sleep, seeing as how I am nearing my golden years, but those guys never stop. Rog's tail is like a hummingbird, it never stops moving. My nub is much more dignified.

Joey is so ready for retirement
They creep up and want to sleep with me, Rog even tries to put his head ON me sometimes. What a weirdo. cute
Haven't they heard about respecting your elders?

Cuz in the wild...
One of them also decided to take my Cuz outside. I don't know who the culprit is, but they better never let it happen again!

quiet down back there ya darn kids!
Knock it off back there!!!

the old man
Only 5 more days and Rog goes home!

the scene of the crime

Someone got in the trash while we were at the library...I wonder who did it??
Mom came home today and saw this, she was NOT happy.

Who did it???



Surely, you are joking!!

Mom seems to think any one of us could have done it, so I think that when she goes to sleep tonight I will slip out and put this on the desktop of the computer???

the truth
You think she might get the hint??

I meant to post this yesterday, WOOPS!

So my mom seems to think we run some sort of pet hotel here in Chez Stains. Our most recent guest is our friend Rog. If you recall he came to see us not too long ago and we had some fun. However, Rog is now living here for the next TWO WEEKS while his dad is off on some trip to some place called Can ah Duh. Now that sounds like where I should send doofus face!!

Rog and Tanner seem to be in love. Those two spend endless amounts of time just rolling around on the floor, doing some strange dancing stuff, playing bitey face and LOTS of humping. Anyway, here are some pics.

relaxing Rog
Here they are watching some TV. They both have the inability to tell when sounds are on the TV instead of being real. It gets old.

battle couch!
I don't even want to know what is going on here!!!

Rog definitely has the advantage
Doofus needs to learn to control that tongue

Joey is inspired by all of the fun going on in the house and he decides to hump a pillow
Ok, this one I have to apologize for. If I was able to grow thumbs and work the mouse you would not be seeing this, but alas, I am at the mercy of my mom. I guess I got a little bit carried away with the excitement and started humping the pillows. I am not sure, I think I must have blacked out as I do not seem to recall this incident. At least that is the story I am sticking with!

happy birthday dear doofus

Here are some quick pics of us celebrating Doofus's birthday

Tanner's birthday presents
Mom was nice and got two toys, so we each got one. But it doesn't matter if she bought 200, Doofus always wants the one I have. These are made by the same company that makes the Cuz, so technically they should be MINE, but I will let it slide for his birthday.

So we both went after the ball first. Dang those carpenters who build cabinets that come out that far, I can barely get my head in there!!

Tanner abandons the beloved corn to attack the octopus.

wild eye
I tried out the giggle ball. That sucker sounds like crying babies or something, its SCARY!

Joey being a brat
Don't worry, I got yelled at for this one...

Mom said you can order octopus at something called Sue She restaurants. That Sue sure knows good stuff, these octolegs are yummy!

busy bone
We also got busy bones.

what a doofus face!
3 years old and still a Doofus!

busy bone
I think he needs a jowl reduction!

busy bone
and a napkin...

busy bone
Not me though, I am all handsome, all the time...

busy bone
Well, mostly.

Hope you are all having a good day!!!!

who wants YOGURT!

So I know there are all the purists out there who say that dogs should NEVER get people food, and usually my mom and dad are complete jerks and give us nothing but hippy biscuits made out of all this 'good for us' stuff, but tonight our dad did the coolest thing ever!!

He let us try something called YOGURT. Have you heard of this stuff?? It is AMAZING!!

he is such a nice dad
This was my very first taste, look at Doofus with that look of jealousy... (please notice my amazing mid-air licking ability)

some tongue action
Don't worry, he got some too.

It just kept getting better! Its got some little rocks in it that my dad said is 'cereal', mom said they are called grape nuts. Who knew grapes had nuts? I wonder if when they took my nuts away they made them into 'cereal' too? I mean, they gotta do something with all those things!

this yogurt stuff rules!
If only they would make that opening a wee bit bigger we could get our whole faces in there!!

tanner tries to squeeeeeze his face into the cup
Doofus sure tried!
