oh dog am I TIRED

So not amused
I am SO TIRED. We have been getting ready for the Super Bowl NON STOP, and when I am not getting things ready I am taking advantage of all the visitors to the valley.

I borrowed the great campaign sign that Ruby made and got it on this great billboard truck. I have been driving all over town!!

We have also been getting the tents ready. Here is a peek inside one of the tents, I hope they are nice enough for all you dogs! We are working on getting an extra large one for MJ and Mango!!

We can't wait, all dogs are welcome, see you guys tomorrow!!!

Tanner its almost SUPER BOWL WEEKEND day!

WHATSSSSSSSSSUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is almost time for that day that is the SUPER BOWL. So we are having one party with Gus and TEKA who is not my girlfriend. I know that we are having some dogs here at OUR house where Mom cancelled HBO.

I am putting up some signs and TEKA is helping. UMMMM how did One TEKA get to my house?! UMMMMMM oh UMMMMMMMMMMM its like maybe she took the bus? or maybe she borrowed one car or something....we really don't want to SAY. BUT we got some signs ready!!

Then it was like we have to have room for dogs to sleep right?!

I used Mom's plastic card and got some of these nicerest TENTS. Cuz maybe somedogs want to be privates when they sleep. NOT SAYING JOEY AND SOPHIE but maybe JOEY mailed SOPHIE a Valentines DAY present that he was thinking was one SECRET but maybe I FOUND OUT about it!!!!!

Then I was like some dogs will like it outside because its NOT colderest here but some dogs like JOEY need to be warmerest so I just decided that we don't need that furniture stuff and I got MORE tents!!

Then we can have some fire too. I dunno why that door came OFF I guess I just got carried away!! OOPS?!

Then it was like what is all this dumb furniture for, we need FOOD!!!!!

So I GOT this thing that just makes hot dogs and more HOT DOGS. Um at this point DAD comes in and does not look happy like he might have one headache so I said um JOEY WHY DID YOU DO ALL THIS?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CANT WAIT to see all my dog friends here!!!!

Get your Motor Running...

A lot of dogs have offered to protect me from my Doofus brother and his corn shank. I started to really worry but then I remembered some friends I have made since living in Arizona. I have to be very discreet about this as I cannot get these dudes, or myself, into trouble. Ya see, I am Joe Stains and excuse my HBO language, but I am quite a badass.

So I gave my friends a call...I can't name names...but maybe this pic will be a good hint...

I got dressed and waited for my friend, uh, lets not use names...

I don't want to show my face, ya know, just in case...

My buddy came over last night and brought my ride, he was making sure it was all tuned up for me...

So I will be here for a while, working out some protection plans and hanging with my dudes.

Tanner is trying to kill me!

I am now 100% convinced Tanner is trying to either kill me by never letting me get any rest or by shanking me with that stupid slimy disgusting corn shank!!!

He got it all nice and sharpened and then look at this...

He jammed it right into my side!

And look at all the corn bits and slobber he left all over me! I need a vacation!

Possessed Doofus!

So I was just relaxing in my sleeping bag last night...

Thinking about life, the election, Sophie...

I was just enjoying the silence when I was interrupted by CHEW CHEW CHEW CHEW CHEW CHEW...

Yep, the Doofus just could not leave me alone to enjoy my own private thoughts.

I couldn't handle the chewing a minute longer so I jumped up and said WOULD YOU KNOCK IT OFF DOOFUS?!?!??!!!!

Finally he went to sleep. Then I think he was taken over by some evil demon again or this video! He is sleeping with his eye open, making all kinds of strange noises and shaking the whole bed...

Wordless Wednesday

I keep hearing about these wordless Wednesdays. Well, Mom is busy, I am bored, cold, grumpy and don't have much to say. So here is my kind of wordless Wednesday.

Thank Dog for sleeping bags...

OMDOG so I TOTALLY figured out how to ride that bus, right? LIke I can get on and pretend to help some other person and they thinks that other person has me for a SeRVICE. SO I told my Good friend TEka Toy, who is NOT my girlfriend, how to ride that bus and we are going to meet at that In N' Out burger. I was smart and said lets go when its darks and the humans wont know we are even gone!!

So we met at In N'Out. then we realized we dont have money! So we stayed out front looking cute and REALLY hungry til someone nice comes along to say you can eat with us!!

Teka can barely contain her excitements and I am just staringerest at that delicious food!!!! We eated all that burgers and then I said its far to the bussing stop so lets just see what we can find to get us home fasterest!!

OMDOG this was like right across the street at this fancy apartment living place and I said WE can totally drive that! TEKA did the feet part and I did the steering and seeing part. I got TEKAs home and then just took the bus to my house. The cart is still there and we can use it for driving some dogs back and forth between our houses for that SuperBowl weekend. I told Teka that if her Muzzer asks where that cart came from just be like, SANTA, DUH! I mean, what does that fat man do all those other days of the year besides Christmas, he has to get BORED and want to spread some cheer!

I SURE hope your neighborhood has a PAWESOME bus system like ours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The weekend just got better!

We told you all about how great our weekend was and then yesterday the BEST thing ever happened. We went to a Boston Terrier Meetup!! OMDOG there were a TON of bostons!!

Here is a group shot of some of the bostons there, we are not the easiest to organize but Niko and Bentley's Mom did a great job. She is right next to us in the photo!

We thought we saw Marvin, or maybe that is Dory??

Tanner insisted he found Simba...

But it wasn't him after all...

That dog looks like Lorenza but can't be her because she wouldnt be seen at an event like this without a beautiful dress.

Bentley was ready to go home after just a little bit, he is sort of anti social like I usually am!

But today I was feeling pretty happy. I figured I need to get out there and let people know that I am running for VP!

I tried to discuss it with Bentley, but he said he is not into politics.

Niko didn't even stop to listen, she just wanted to play some frisbee.

Some dogs asked if they thought I was too old for this kind of position, so I had to break out some of my old moves to let them know I have not lost my touch.

I think those photos CLEARLY show that this old dog still has the spunk needed to be VP!

To answer Ike's question, no shot guns were mistakenly fired on any dogs at the park today ;)

I had SUCH a great day!!!

At the end we were dirty and tired, but we had a GREAT time!

Happy Sunday!!

How is everyone's weekend going so far? Ours has been pretty great!

I got a new collar. Mom said its very whimsical for a dog as serious as I am, but I like it. I think it will show the voters that I have a softer side.

Its got dogs of all shapes and colors!

And it makes me look VERY handsome!

On top of getting a new collar we finally benefited from all the cooking Mom does for her food blog. She made an entire chicken and before she cooked it she reached in and pulled all of this GOODNESS out of it!

She totally threw away the neck because she wasn't sure if it was safe for us. I KNOW some of you dogs get them but Mom said she wasn't chancing it. argh!

Mom cooked them up for us but even that was for HER.

mmmm giblet juice
She used all that yummy stuff in the bottom to add flavor to a sauce she made in that pan. BUT I am not complaining because this was our dinner...

Mine is the one without the carrots. I have decided I no longer like them, but the Doofus still gets them to keep his butt from breaking. There is one piece of heart in there for each of us and some yogurt and our supplement.

Talk about a nice dinner, THANKS MOM!

After dinner we took a nice nap

Mom even had the fire on. What a great day.

Its election year!

I have been asked to run as Vice President with Tadpole Pomegranate! I know there are other dogs running for President, but I like to think that if one dog wins we will all be president together, that way we can take turns and still have lots of free time!

I haven't written my acceptance speech but I have been very busy getting some ads out there for us.

Billboards are a great way to make sure lots of people get to see you!!

Times Square is FILLED with people, Mom wanted to know why Tad's picture is so small in this when in this next one...

I AM HUGE! I swear its not an ego thing. I would hate for folks to get too close of a look at Tad because he IS Chinese and they may disqualify him from running!!! See, I am ALWAYS thinking!!!!
