I am Tanner the Hunter, Tanner the stalker

I am Tanner and I am one brave hunter and stallker. I LIke to eat some water bottles but you must be able to get them from the HUMANS. The HUMANS like the watter bottles too and they have to free them from the cold box BEFORE I can have it.

I see my bottle, Joey said this is called PRAY! I see my PRAY!

WHATSSUUUUUUUUPPPPPPP Dad, how is that water that you have, maybe I could taste some?!

I just check it out, make sure its safe, right ok?

DAD said NO this is MY water! This is not for TANNER! This one is harderest to get. I think I try from some other way!!


Hm, still no, Really DAD? I can't have it??

Just one littlest nibble? One tiny chew on the lid PLEASE?!

FINALLY Dad drinked all the water and the PRAY WAS MINE!

I LOOOOOOVEEEEEE Water bottles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you wonder what crabby whiny baby freezering Joey was doing during this one...

Grammie made nice offer to make one blanket for the whiny pants cry baby but he has one gazillion jillion blankets all over he just likes to make complaining his favoritest thing to do ever. But we do thank you for the offer, that was very nice of you!!!!

Nice hunting, Tanner. It's hard to be patient with people, isn't it?

Your dad's tattoos look pretty cool - is that a dragon on his arm? Does he have a tattoo of YOU?

Your friend, LEnny

Tanner, congratulations on a successful stalk of the much feared and hated water bottle. I think you should give Joey more of your food, so the calories will keep him warm. OK?

I've never really liked playing with bottles. My cousin loves pop bottles. Her favorite is Sprite bottles because the shape makes it easier to hold onto. My aunt feels weird fiishing off a soda and then not having anybody come take it from her.

I love bottles also Tanner. You did some good stalking there. poor joe I hope he warms up soon.

Poor Joey, 68 degrees indoors is pretty cold! No wonder he's so grouchy.

Good job on the water bottle capture! Your dad must've been scared around such a fierce & dedicated hunter.

Woo-hooooo! You got it, Tanner! Way to hunt!
We love water bottles too, and our Servant says that's all we're getting to play with - watter bottles and knotted old socks because all the dog toys have lead and arsenic Dog knows what else.
Silly human!
We would be happy to come and curl up with Joe to share our warmth, but only if your humans turn up the heat to at least 70.

Ooooh. I'm with you, Joe. under the blankie is the place to be. Let the youngins' do the hunting.


ps. I am so MAD about the STOOOPID Patriots. I saw that Troy Palomalaoloamaloama didn't play or I bet they would have won the most.

Tanner, You really shouldn't make fun of Joey. He IS letting you live there and he has some pretty big friends - ahem - remember? You should be hunting blankies for the Joe and piling them on him, making sure he does not get too cold. If I knitted or sewed or anything remotely domesticate like that, I would make him lots of clothes, But hunting water bottles is also impressive. Good work!

Blogger Stanley said...

Hey, Tanner!

I like to stalk & hunt water bottles too. It doesn't matter to me how big or how full or empty they are. My favorite kind, though, are the big 2 gallon kind that are still full of watter. I like to drag those into the middle of the living room and start chewing. Then I get to watch the fountain I made until it dies.

Glad we are kindred spirits. Go smooche on Joe. He's low.

Goober love,

Oh Tanner - good try with the water bottle! Too bad you couldn't get it while there was water still in it. Imagine how much fun you could have had spraying it all around!!
Love Clover xo
P.S. Sorry you are so cold Joey - hope the warmth comes back soon!

It looks like you like water bottles as much as Figgy does. I haven't figured out yet how much fun they are, but I've still got a lot to learn.

Is Joey sitting by the fireplace, all bundled up?

Wow, Tanner, you sure showed that water bottle who's boss. I have lots of blankies too but it's been in the 20s here. Love, Martha

Blogger Grammie said...

Joey makes fun of you because you have some extra weight. Who is laughing now. You don't need to stay wrapped up in a blanket. You can be out on the prowl for all sorts of "pray." I was pretty sure that Joey had tons of blankets from all I had seen and probably wouldn't need another one. Never hurts to ask.

Tanner, I love the water bottles too. Once I get one I run and squeeze the middle, crack, crunch, crack, crunch, over and over and over until the lady threatens to take the da*& thing away. Then I taunt Reilly with it and finally I chew it up. Best toy EVER!
