Joe Stains

This is the blog of an angry old boston terrier. (and his little brother Tanner who gets to post every Tuesday)

Monday, August 06, 2007


Mom said we are not allowed to fight on the blog because in her words, 'it is getting OLD'. Well, I think she is the LAST person to talk about anything getting OLD because she is practically a senior citizen. I really don't know what in the heck else to talk about? I was tagged for the time capsule game, but I am still thinking about it so I will do that later this week. SO since the only things I really like are picking on Tanner and FOOD I guess I will talk about food.

All the HUMANS said my dinner looked gross yesterday, so here is a pic for the humans of what my MOM ate:

She did share some of the brussel sprouts with us, but she didn't give us many because for some reason she said she should be allowed to eat a full meal of her own and she didn't steal any of our food. She also said Tanner has a bit of a weight problem.

Now, how am I supposed to post this photo and NOT make fun of Tanner? Look at his neck? or necks? or what in the heck his FAT ROLL!

I found this thing in the fridge, but it says chocolate. The Doof CANNOT stand to lose even one more precious brain cell so I guess I cannot give him any of this junk to help him lose weight. Maybe they make it in beef flavor?

Finally, you may not be aware of all of the recent food recalls but if you see something like this in your house I would immediately box it up and send it to me because I uh, think its probably very dangerous and um, detrimental to the safety of your humans and your own dog self. I will carefully test it and send any SAFE remaining leftovers back to you.

We don't have that kind of cheese in our fridge Joey but we do have NY aged cheddar. Is there a recall on that one too? Should we be sending that kind to you to test?

Oh that's so nice of you to help with the food recalls. I would like to offer to help Tanner with his diet. Please send me 1/2 of his food. Especially if you keep getting that stuff from the can. Or from your mom's plate.

Hi Joe
I love hearing about Tanner. I can relate. As far a recalls go-- in my house they took away lots of my chews that were made in China and might have plastic in them. But they still let me chew the plastic measuring cup from China. Maybe they're trying to kill me?

What no more picking on tanner? Well that isn't very fun. We enjoy seeing you and tanner pick on each other. :) I could send you our cheese. Mom doesn't give me much of it because it gives me gas and she says I'm gassy enough.

I think it's great that mommy is making you two get along, I bet it would be more fun to make fun of your parents as a team!!!!!!

What's up with your mom complaining about sharing food, that's their job to give us half their food.

hmmm... i think something smells funny, and it's not the cheese. it's that that "food re-call" scheme of yours - my mom has shared lots of that stuff with me and it i'm pretty sure it's totally not poisonous. it is in fact rather highly prized around my house. so i won't be sending you any of mine.

just the same, i do admire your attempt to get all you can, and won't hold it against you for trying. (there's a sucka born every minute, lemme know if it works!!!)

Okay, two things...

1) I love the Joey/Doofus Face fights! KEEP EM COMIN! Don't listen to your mom!

2) Your method of testing cheese sounds a lot like the way my dad used to test our Halloween candy to see if it was tainted. Oddly enough all of his favourite candies were usually 'tainted' so we couldn't have them. Have you been talking to my dad?!

Joey, that is so nice of you to offer to test the food for us. But we would not want you to end up looking like Tanner so we have decided not to send over the cheese.

Yo Joe! Did ya catch any of the game last night??? That Tomlin guy may not be too bad!! And he's only one year older than my Mom!!! She's a total slacker.

Here's the deal...

We need all the help we can get in da 'burgh and I have bunch of stuff to get you prepped for the season opener. If you boyz in AZ can send us a little Mojo...we may be able to pull out a big season. need the right gear. And it MUST be authentic. Now I know you have peeps back in Town, but I don't think any of them are canine. Could you email me your address to ferndoggleblog at yahoo dot com so I can set you up with the proper gear to pull us through the season?

We're riding on you dude.

Ooh, I'm not fooled by that cheese trick! Nice try though (hee hee!)

Maybe Tanner should start wearing turtlenecks to hide his sagging neck like my mom does.

Those brussel sprouts look gross! Trust me, you don't want any!

There is nothing wrong with fat rolls. I have plenty of them myself and look how beautiful I am!

Do you have any bacon to go with that recalled cheese?
