food before girls


So yesterday you all had to endure the Doofus and his romantic problems and Mom accused me of instigating because I told him about mistresses, whatever. I just like the guy to have some fun, right? Mom seems to think I was trying to get him in trouble with Lillie for my own amusement. Would I do something like that?

So no more talk about girls. I want to talk about the most important thing in the world, FOOD.

Everyday Mom makes us a special dinner. It always has flax seed in it and it always has our supplement in it. BUT she tries to make it a little different everyday for us, so I give her some bonus points for that. If you are new to my blog you may not know that Tanner has some umm gland issues in his nether regions so the Vet recommended more veggies and fruits for us. This might have been the best thing the Doof ever did for me. So today our dinner was yogurt with dried cranberries and some kibble. Yogurt is our faaaavorite.


Here we are pigging out.


This gave mom an opportunity to show you how to tell us apart very easily, other than the fact that I am 120% more handsome than Tanner. See that DOT on the top of his head, that is how you know it is Tanner...because that is the ACTUAL size of his brain! Amazing, eh?


That is me, no doofus dot to be found.

Take a look at this video of us eating. Mom says this house is so noisy! Our collars make clanking bell noises then in the background you can hear my Dad playing the drums, ON HIMSELF. He is a drummer and is ALWAYS drumming with his hands and feet on everything, even himself. At the end you will see Tanner finish his food then wait for me to finish...then we switch! We do this everytime. Sometimes Tanner doesn't wait so I scoop up EVERYTHING in my dish into my mouth and run into the TV room and then spit it back out. Mom sure loves that trick!

But those cranberries look yummy...Mom didn't know dogs could eat cranberries..so well, now she KNOWS!

What beautiful music you boys make when you eat! And your Dad's drumming sounds like fireworks!!!!

Sherman & I play musical food bowls after dinner because Penny is anorexic and always leaves a little bit. HE even lets me help him clean out her bowl. He pretends he doesn't like me but he DOES!!!

Nothing beats the sound of eating!! As for the Doofus Dot, you always manage to crack me up!!! But are you sure that's the size of Tanner's brain?? It can't be "that" small, can it??

Mmm, I love yogurt too!!

Luv,

Yup, we do the switch bowls too. Well, actually Teka comes to check out my bowl, but I am not allowed near hers, or she nips my ears. Women, you are smart to prefer food!

Musical bowls...I like that. Joe your foods sound really yummy. I think I need to get my Mom to talk with your Mom about it...I just get kibble. A little variety would be nice once in a while!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Not sure about cranberries for me, I don't seem to like anything with fruit or veg, but you both look very well on it!

Has tanner tried pumpkin for his gland thing? Jack has this problem and is always scooting his butt. But he is slightly better now that pumpkin firms his stools and push the 'things' inside the sac.

Joe, I couldn't agree more. While ladies are nice, food is better. The ONLY time it is silent at our house is dinner time. We take it very seriously. I always used to handle the food cleanup for both of us but now that we do BARF me and my sissy do the same trading routine you do. And we get a lot of yogurt and fruit, too. YUM. I love my vegetables and fruitables.

wally.

ps. I hate to be mean but at the end of your eating video you do a little doofus face.

Hi Joe,
You are so lucky! I wish my Mum would prepare gourmet dinners.

that video of you guys eating was really funny. I like that you have to lick each others' food bowls. FUNNY.

Mom liked the idea of putting different things in your food, so she added something extra to my food two different times.

I'll post about it.

THANKS!!!
