Sad and fair

So we are sad to lose our always happy friend LacyLulu. Mom said I should stop to think how lucky I am to be healthy and pain free and that I should be nicer to Tanner. SO I decided to do a Doofus, er, Tanner post. I thought you guys might like to see some older pics that Mom doesn't think she has ever had on here. (she is way old so some of these MAY be repeats)

This was the very first picture we ever saw of the doofus. Mom and Dad were like, woah look at that face!

He sure was tiny back then. These photos were taken at Aunt Patty's house in Ohio in June of 2005. Tanner lived with them until the end of August 2005.

I have to be nice here, but you may notice there was a whole lot LESS Tanner back then.

I believe this photo was taken the day that Cowboy Pig was 'put away'. As you can see the Doof is trying to rip his bandnananana off. Again, wow sure looks like a totally different Tanner. I can't quite put my finger on it but it seems like we have MORE Tanner to love these days...

Tanner LOVES riding in the car, he likes to be right in the middle console, but Mom and Dad say that is not safe so he gets shoved in the back with me.

OK I admit it, sometimes the darn Doofus does something cute!

Ok so its been more than once that he did something cute.

Finally, the most humbling photos ever to be shared on my blog...

He was warm, I was cold, one thing led to another and of course Mom had the camera ready!

Mom just thinks this picture is SO SO cute. (I can't believe I am sharing these photos!)

This is the last one. We look like a two headed Boston Terrier. I think I was asleep first and then the Doof crept in, that is my story anyway.

Finally, while Tanner can be cute and warm there is one thing I will not budge on...

THE CUZ ARE MINE!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh man, now that you have been forced to post those totally cute lovie dovie shots your reputation is going to be at risk.

Maybe you guys could work out the joint custody agreement with Cowboy Pig like I did with the duckie.

I got a cuz from Sophia and I loves it a lot, but sometimes Sophia tries to takes it back and I gets mad at her. She slept over last nite, Nanny will post some of the piktoors over the weekends.
Happy Easter to you, Tanner and your hoomans.

Hey Joe, Did you and Tanner play like crazy when he first came. That's what I did with my sister Sydney, until I realized she wasn't leaving.

A two-headed boston terrier --- that's a scary thought -- what a great picture!

You must admit that your life became more interesting since Tanner came to live with you...and there's even more of him to love.

Yup, we had noticed there was a whole lot less Tanner before you even mentioned it.

Thanks for sharing some of the moments we do not normally see. It takes a real man to cuddle with a Doofus

Thanks for all the pictures of Tanner. We think that you are right and he has gained an ounce or two. It is probably all that great cooking that your mom does.

The main thing I'm taking away from that post about Tanner is... your CLAWS, man! Whoa! You've got yourself some Howard Hughes like nails going on there. Very badass!

I think it shows just how mature you are, and how much you've grown emotionally, to be dedicating one of YOUR posts to the Doof... Tanner. He was more svelte back then, and it's obvious you like being a big brother. What I'm saying here, Joe, is that I'm proud of you, man! It takes a very secure dog to show incriminating photos like you showed. (My girl and I love you even more... if that's possible).

Take care of Cowboy Pig! He's a good bud to you.

Viva los Hermanos de STAINS!!!!

Goober love,
