The DOOFUS files

I reminded my mom that it has been like forever since I updated and my internet friends will surely wonder what has happened at our place since the last update. Well, nothing happened. Its been super boring around here and my mom and dad are not helping by providing much entertainment.

So my mom thought I could talk about how I ended up with a DOOFUS face in my house. It all started on Father's day in 2005. I was at my grandpa's house and everyone was like, oh Joey needs a friend, and Joey wants a brother. Nobody bothered to ask JOEY his opinion on this subject. Just as they were all talking about this my Dad's Aunt called from Ohio and said that they just got a Boston Terrier in at the pound where she works. So what happens, she asked if my mom and dad wanted him. AND THEY SAID YES! I was like, what you talkin bout willis?!?! So my dad's aunt kept Tanner for 3 months and then drove all the way across the US with him.

The first night Joey and Tanner met
Well this is the very first picture of Tanner and I. Look at him! He is deranged! I am trying to escape him!

The first night Joey and Tanner met
He brought this giant bodygaurd with him named Chief.

The first night Joey and Tanner met
But then we got back to our apartment and there was no Chief there to protect him...and it was ON! BUT then mom and dad said that this sort of playing was not allowed. What a rip off!

Anyway, to make a long story short he has been here for like a year and a half and I think his warranty has expired, so I guess I am stuck with him.

Joey and Tanner
He does keep me warm sometimes

And he does stupid stuff like this that makes us laugh.

doofus and the princess bone
And he makes me look really tough because he has GIRL TOYS. haha What a princess dog!

So that is how we ended up with a doofus faced Tanner.

If you wonder how he got the name Doofus Face...well...need I say more??

I am Tanner, hear me roar!

I don't think it's right that your people didn't even ask you before getting Doofus! My girl didn't ask me before getting Comet either. He acted deranged too, and I kept telling her to take him back, but she didn't. Hmmpph.

Where did you get the pink toy? My girl buys us toys that look like that, but they are white, with a green squishy part in the middle. The pink one is cuter.

I think Tanner is adorable. And he's a fellow Buckeye. So why does he wear a Steelers collar. That ain't right.

So glad to see you've updated your blog... We were starting to worry. Mommy says your blog is probably the most entertaining she's seen so far. (What?? I thought I was the most entertaining!!).

As for your doofus must admit, he's pretty darn cute! And if push comes to shove...I believe there's something called an "extended warranty" that you can look into.

BLU, the toy came from Petco, its made by nylabone. they have blue ones and green ones too, so you might have the same thing!

Buster, he wears the collar because my mom is from Pittsburgh, whatever that is.

Toby, thanks for saying those nice things about the blog. I will tell mom she is doing a good job :) As for Doofus, I think that I should be able to claim some sort of mental trauma as mom said I will soon be Jerry Atrick and Doofus will bug me even more. Who is that guy? I didn't know that when you got old you got a new name :(

ok joey, glad you're back in the office! thought your hooman were still stranded in the Belgian festival! LOL

doofus is... adorable and maybe sometime annoying. but aren't you glad you have a play mate? i wish i have a same kind of play mate instead of playing with the hooman, who sometimes ignore me saying i'm too annoying!

You are way too funny! But really.. you must like Tanner just a LITTLE bit if you made a whole post all about him.
Sucks that your people didn't ask you first if you wanted a new brother, but it seems like you guys have fun, right?? I wish I had a brother to play with too but I'd be jealous if he was better looking than me.. actually, I wouldn't be jealous cuz THAT WOULDN'T BE POSSIBLE.

Anyway from one squish faced dog to another

Boo, I really DON'T even like playing with him. I am getting old, I like to sleep and watch out the window, that is it. Sometimes I take his toys away, but really, I would rather be left alone.

Peonystormrider, whew, that is some name! Anyway, the girl toys came from Petco, its made by nylabone. Thanks for reading!

Dudley, first of all I agree that surpassing your cuteness might not be possible, but I have to disagree on liking tanner. I made a post about him because there is NOTHING else going on around here and mom takes a million pictures of the doofus. He does make us laugh, but that is about it for me.

Hi Joe! Thanks for linking up with us - it's great to meet you!
Hey... my mom didn't check with me about adopting Dave, either - so don't feel bad. Tanner looks like he'd be cool to hang out with.
Tail wags,

Admit it Joe, you love Tanner... you are just like most men who are unwilling to reveal your true feelings cause you want to look all tough!!

Is Tanner literate?? Can he read or blog??

Love nibbles,
