a brief look into the life of a doofus

Let me set the scene, its Arizona, its almost summer. It is HOT



Yet what do we have here?


A dog who will not come inside. A dog who doesnt seem to notice that it is over 100 degrees.


Yes folks, he is a Doofus.


He spent a good deal of time just wandering in the yard.


And then surprise, the doofus is parched. The doofus seems like he might barely make it back to the house.

But don't worry, he is fine. Well, as fine as you can be if you are a Doofus.

Could this explain why his brain is the size of a dot...it dehydrated?

Hmmm--if his brain is dehydrated that explains why it is so small. If you rehydrated it would it help overcome his doofusism. Or would he just be a smarter, more diabolical doofus. That doesn't sound good.

don't worry about tanner, he would need alot of sun for the heat to penetrate his head to overheat his brain he ehee hee..

the frosty paws look awesome! just wondering, are they hard like ice cubes, or slushy?

hope tanner didn't burn his undersides falling asleep while tanning his privates.

It is 40° the thermometer or is terrible and hot.
It is not thought in Japan.
In the outside, joey is dangerous.
Water is necessary.

Wow, that is HOT!

Doesn't Tanner know about the joys of air conditioning?

Oh, and thanks for offering to send him here to live with me. I would love that, but Mom says it's probably not hot enuff for him - yet!

My sister Penny likes to lay outside right in the sun and her tongue gets giant & she huffs & pants. Maybe she's part doofus.

Well, the Doofus is pretty Doofus like if he is out in that terrible heat. Check the spot where his brain is, has it shrunk in the heat?

Poor thirsty Tanner.

It was in our UK papers today on the headlines in one of them about your drought!

It has been hot and sticky here in Scotland today, but not as hot as you guys!

love and hot licks, Marvin xxxxx

ps Tell Doofus to get the heck inside!

I went out with my mom today and I was totally hot and it was just 80 something degrees and my mom won't crank the AC like I want her to in the car because she said that gas is expensive and that decreases her mileage. And I said you know what's expensive, mom - a new Boston terrier - and she thought I was being stupid. Whatever.

I'm in agreement with several other doggies here, his brain has surely shriveled up from all that heat exposure! Perfectly acceptable conclusion I think.

That's why Huskies and Malamutes are all so smart, our brains are set for cold weather, so avoid heat at all costs!!

Oh Joes, all you have to do is figure out how to lock the doors when your parents aren't around and you will be Doofus-free... but what a sad thought that would be for the rest of us who enjoy all that he adds to your cranky life!

Hey Joey,
Man, we have 87 degrees today & we hate it. We would rather be in the air conditioned house. How can Tanner stand it outside??? Hope he doesn't get dehydrated.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Doofusism? Diabolical Doofus?

Tanner does look too hot. I can tell because when he overheats isn't his doofus dot supposed to turn RED?

You're killin' me Joe!

Your Goob,
Stanley
