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

Wednesday, August 29, 2007

We have been asked a lot of questions lately so I would like to take the time to answer all of you!

Lorenza asked about how we convinced our Mom to give more than just dry kibble. The answer for that one is easy, you get a dog that has a stinky, smelly, leaky BUTT! Tanner's butt glands were messed up so the Vet said to give us fruits, veggies and other high fiber stuff so that our um production from the nether regions was more um productive. That way the gland naturally secretes. So far so good!

Asta, Ben Benjamin and Simba asked if the scary green chipmunk was still alive and the answer is YES! It is missing its squeaking function and has many puncture wounds but no pieces have been broken off, which means we get to keep it!

Amber Mae asked if the chipmunk is chewy and I have to say that it is the strangest material I have ever felt. Its like plastic but a little squishy, but hard enough that we cannot break any of it off! It also smells like Vanilla, YUM!

Chiyo and Fee asked if I still hump Tanner a lot, and the answer is NO. I pay attention to Tanner about a total of 30 minutes every day when we fight over toys. The rest of the day I completely ignore him.

Gus asked on behalf of Teka if our friend Rog has a girlfriend, and I don't think he does. He is an older man though, just like me. Sometimes he also gets excited and pees on the floor. BUT he is super awesome!

Joey is so ready for retirement
Look at those handsome terriers. Oh and the fat one too.

Finally, Grammie and a lot of other people ask about my Dad's tattoos. He has his whole upper body done and one of his lower legs is half done. His back is a scary Japanese guy with flames and junk so I won't show that because some of our younger dogs might get scared. I think its pretty cool though! He gets his work done by a good friend in town.
Here is a neat picture a friend of ours named Kristen Wright took. She is a good photographer!

I think it's great your Mom gives you lots of good stuff. Who cares if it's for Tanner's leaky butt. YOU get to benefit.

Mom thinks that picture of your Dad is PAWSOME!! It should be a poster. Mom has a teeny weeny tattoo on her back. She never takes her shirt off like that to show anyone though.

(be watching your Mail, Joes! I just sent you a Game Day package!)

My girl almost got us one of those toys last week, but thought the soft plastic would rip off and make my pancreas angry. I'll have to send her out again, based on your great review!

Yay for peeing on the floor!

And that picture of you dad should be on an advertisement for his tattoo artist - it's awesome!

thank you for the information on Rog. Teka says she prefers to be the one peeing on the floor. And other things. Rog might be too fastidious for her.

Your friend is a good photographer. That is a really cool photo and your dad has beautiful tattoos.

Me and Tanner have that leaky butt thing in common, but shhhhh. Don't tell anyone. It doesn't good well with my beautiful diva image. My mom gives me turkey necks and Missing Link and loads of veggies. The turkey necks keep my teeth super clean too. I'll post a pic one day.

Thanks for the info and picture of your Dad's tats. They look very well done. Maybe his artist should have their own show like Miami or LA Ink. You and Tanner could come and visit the shop and be on TV.

Hey Joey,
I said this before and I will say it again. I think tattoos are boootiful!!! Unfortunately, they are not widely accepted in the Asian culture..although things are improving! :)

Oh, thanks you for answering Joey! Taste like VANILLA? Now that's strange...Why not it taste like goo becoz it's green in color like our nose gunk? Heeheehee! Woooooooh! Look at your daddy's tattoos! All I can say is, ouchy! That has got to hurt...But hey, I want a tattoo under my belly where there's no hair. I want a red colored tattoo that says 'Bite Me!' Anybody your daddy knows who can do this? Since I don't have cash, I'll just pay him treats.

Love licks,

I want to thank you for taking the time to answer the questions your public has. You are so good to us fans (and friends). Tell your dad he looks like a cross between a badass biker and a Zen master.

Goob love,
