doofus recovery

I hope you all recovered from Doofus Day, I enjoy my day of rest. I can't believe he just lets Mom dress him up in all those stupid clothes and just goes about his business like he doesn't look like a complete DORK. I would also like to point something out.


I don't have a tape measure or a ruler but I estimate him to be about 17 inches across. He is huge!!

This leads me to an award that we have been presented by The Army of Four and our boston friend Ruby. They have awarded Me this award:

BUT they said TANNER TOO?! WHAT? Since when have you seen a FAT rocker? I sure can't think of any awesome FAT rockers? Can you?? (don't say Elvis because he died from being a fat guy!)


Well thank you guys for the award for ME but I think you should reconsider for Fat Tanner??

One of my favorite rock bands is THIN (not fat) Lizzy and they wrote a song that I think totally describes me:

"I am your main man if you're looking for trouble
I'll take no lip 'cause no ones tougher than me
If I kicked your face you'd soon be seeing double
Hey little girl, keep your hands off me 'cause I'm a rocker"

Rock on, Joe!

I have to admit I didn't watch the All-Star game in part because we are early birds and like to go to bed in the middle of the afternoon. But if I'd known there were boo-dogs involved...

Tanner could never run the bases like an Itchy-Ro with that chub. I bet you could, though!


my ma ape just told me "let he who is without chub count the first weight watchers points." I have no idea what she's on about.

I don't think Tanner is fat so much - he's just big boned, don't you think?

Maybe you should suggest the green bean diet for Tanner? That's what I have to eat to help with my weight!

Well Joe - even Elvis had his fat clothes, so rockers can be hefty in all fairness to Tanner.

My human read me a quote you may want to use with your mom -

"If your human asks you to wear a sweater - ask them to wear a tail"

It gave us a giggle.

Have a great rest of the week-

Love, Dory

Rock on Joey -

Drums do you play or are you the lead singer ??

Tanner may just be full of love so maybe he lets Mom dress him up to show her that he loves her....

Fat - Fat do they do gastric bypass on Boston Terriers ??

OMG I had to pull out my measuring tape to see how fat Doofus Face was and I just about peed my pants laughing. SEVENTEEN INCHES! I'm glad you explained how that refers to his girth and not something else because I was like "What? Is Joey complimenting Tanner?! What's going on here?!?!"

Hehehe... that's not a very flattering photo of Tanner... hope he won't get mad at you for showing it.

You definitely look a little *excited* about being a rocker! I'd like to see you pick up that guitar & show us what you've got!

As for fat rockers, Meat Loaf immediately came to mind. Also, Jerry Garcia was a pudgeboy rockin' dude (although he did lose a little weight with the loss of that one finger).

Goob love,
