My Mom is pretty great sometimes!

I would like to show you something:


This is a screen shot of our weather. Our low tonight is going to be 29 degrees. Mom has lived here for 11 years and it has never been under 32 in any weather forecast she has ever seen. This caused some concern for her as she knows of my delicate nature, so she did something very nice for me.


She bought me my very own Coleman Sleeping Bag. Can you see how warm this thing looks?

Since she was kind enough to do this for me I was kind enough to let this happen


This is TORTURE. Zipped into a sleeping bag with the Doofus. At least he didn't fart!!!

I love my new sleeping bag and I am so glad I have a nice warm place to be tonight.

My mom and girl saw your picture and said oh and then they saw the one of you and Tanner and said OHHHH that's so cute. Sorry you had to put up with tanner in your bag though. That is one nice present from your mom

Great Present! We hope Tanner behaves tonight and doesn't get lost in the sleeping bag. We are planning to sleep with muzzer and Dad in the big bed. Teka is sleeping UNDER the covers. I am staying on top. Probably. More tomorrow

That sleeping bag looks so inviting! That will be so nice for you. This will probably be a 3 dog night in Arizona! Too bad you couldn't get Princess Sparkle to come over for a slumber pawty! Ha! Ha!
Stay warm and toasty guyz! We'll be thinking about you. We will have a little bit of your Arizona winter heading this way soon!

You two must really be cold to be sharing a sleeping bag and bed together. We are freezing too. Both of us snuck on the bed with the girl last night (and probably tonight too). She didn't seem to mind one bit.
Keep warm

That was such a n ice thing your mama did for you! My mama didn't do that for me, and it's gotten below 30° a few times in Tucson!

That's okay. I'd just eat it anyway.

Blogger Snowball said...

Woooohoooo... it is a really cool to have your own sleeping bag. I doubt I will ever have one cos I will probably suffer from heat stroke if I sleep in something like that. Isn't it nice to have cold weather sometimes?

Luv,

oh my Dog, if Tanner had farted, he would have blown the whole bag up!

It looks cosy, but perhaps smelly with Tanner on board!

Wow! That looks cool! I'd like one in camo colors! But I'd lay on it, not in it. It's a Sibe thing. Totally cool, Joe!

Hi Joe,

It's pretty cold out here on the East Coast, and yet I have no sleeping bag! I must make Mama aware of this immediately, because yours looks super-snuggly.

C-ya,
Murphy Dogg

P.S. Tanner will eventually fart in the bag, so you might wanna kick him out now, just to be safe.

Blogger Agatha and Archie said...

Wow,it was 45 degrees here in Boston today!! What is going on!!! That is THE coolest sleeping bag we have ever seen.Your Mom thinks of everything. Archie says that even if Tanner did fart at least you would be warm.Oh brother.Love A+A

I looked at that bag and wished I could jump in right beside you. I think there's room for 3 of us.

Blogger Lillie Valentine said...

Do you think I can fit in that sleeping bag with Tanner? It is colder than that in MN!!! You guys do look cute in there together. That was a very "brotherly"thing for you to do Joey!

That is a very cool bag. I need to talk my 'rents into picking one up for me. I think that's very nice of you to share it with the doofus too. Love, Martha

WHOA, Joey! That is very cool of your mom to do! My girl has seen those before, but thought I wouldn't be able to fit inside it. Glad to see you putting it to good use.

Personally, if you keep your nose sticking out of the sleeping bag, it won't matter if Tanner farts. It might just warm things up a bit more!

Stay warm, dude. Now that you have a sleeping bag, I think you need to host a slumber party!

Goober love,
Stanley

You two look like a little BT burrito! How precious. My mom calls me her living, breathing and pooping foot warmer. I'm always warm inside! Maybe you need a double-coated pug sissy to keep you warm?

That is a pretty pawsome sleeping bag! And you are very nice to share it with your brother, too. I like to share my Dad's sleeping bag the best.

Hey Joey....Babystan made a HUUUUGE Dale STAIN on the new dining room carpet tonight. Mumsie drank a glass of wine after that and she really doesn't drink. Hmm....

Hi Joe
I need one of those things. Looks cozy even with Tanner. It's been below zero here in Colorado! There's ice inside the windows! I just crawl under the covers. Arrow's new game is attacking me under the covers. Sometimes he misses and gets a human foot!

Wow, your sleeping bag is pawsome! Personally, I wouldn't share with ANYDOG but I suppose it was cold so you had a good excuse. Hehehe! J x
