No Results, no barfing

So we did not get the blood results from the Vet today, we will get an update Monday. The good news is Tanner has not puked and is eating food as usual. I must tell you that while he was at the Vet I was nosing around in his stuff (for his own safety to be sure he was not keeping anything that might upset his stomach, of course) and found his very first corn shank. I was alarmed to discover he was shaping it into an exact replica of a knife that my Mom has:

I am a little bit shocked and somewhat afraid. I guess maybe I should be nicer to Tanner. Perhaps he IS smarter than I once thought?

With that in mind I did let Mom take this photo.

But then I quickly performed a maneuver to get away from the Doofus, then I reminded him I have a weapon of my own...

Oh ya, take that butt bomb Tanner. Can you see I am practically blinding him with my gas attack??

We will keep you posted about the Vet news, but we are pretty sure the Doofus will be ok, he is acting as Doofusy as usual.

So until we talk again, here is my handsome face in the sunlight...

Joe, You are indeed very handsome. Tanner's corn shank does look strikingly similar to that knife, but it is also similar to a paisley. Hmmmm.

We hope Tanner is ok :)

And I'd be keeping a bit of an eye on him too - those are quite some carving skills he's got there!!

I sure hope the Doofus is ok. Maybe this is just his way to try and get more attention. That corn shanks looks scary!

Aw, Joey, you know he likes your farts--look at him! He didn't even move away. Though I had some good laughs over that wincy eye thing he had going on. ;-D

I'm glad that Tanner seems to be OK!

How come I can't get my corn shank to look like Tanners?! Could you ask him to write me personally, Joey? I would sure appreciate it!

Yer friend,

Great idea with the butt bomb. I am going to try and blast pee-wee off the deck with one today. Hee hee.

You need to get that corn cob shank away from Tanner before somebody gets hurt.

Butt Bomb! Well done. That corn shank is worrisome, though. I definitely think walking around in a cloud of gas to keep him at bay. Eating bacon every day would do it for me.

Wow, you are looking extra handsome in that photo, Joe.

I'm sure your weapon can do more damage than Tanner's so I wouldn't worry!

I'm glad the Doofus is feeling better - looks like he is back to his old self.

I'm glad to hear Tanner isn't doing any more horka-ing! I hope it turns out to be "nothing"!
GREAT pictures!

We think Tanner was making a tooth pick for YOU, Joe Stains, so you don't have to get your teeth ever done by the VET, and that you should tell him sorry for fart bombing him. (Although we don't see fart bombs as weapons; we frankly enjoy them.)

Glad he's feeling better.

Dawson does those butt bombs that make your eyes water. They are enough to clear a room and save your life in a time of need.

We are glad to hear that the Doof, er, Tanner, is feeling better. It was probably just something he ate!
He really has a way around a corn shank. Who know how talented he was? Maybe he can sell them on HSN or QVC on one of those knife shows!

Yo, Joe, did you hear about that construction worker who tried to jinx the Yankee's new stadium by burying a Red Sox jersey under the concrete? Bizarre! He got caught though. Well, obviously or it wouldn't be in the news, huh. Hope your weekend was stress and vomit-free!

Yes, indeed, your face is certainly a handsome one, Joey.

Maybe Tanner has been watching the food channel and is going to become a chef and cook right along side your mom.

I'd make sure that your mom locked up Tanner's corn shank before I took a nap. It's pretty scary looking.

It is a well-known fact that you are the handsomest candidate on the presidential election circuit. You might want to be less forthcoming about the butt bombs though... at least until you and Tad are in office.

Keep us posted on Tanner, and watch out for that corn shank, man!

Goober love,
