Mom never edits the photos she puts up here, she just uploads and you see them as she took them. The other day she started messing with them and did this...

She thought that looked pretty cool so she said, lets see if we can make you more handsome... GOOD LUCK I said, how do you improve this face??

I gotta admit I do look pretty good here. What do you think???

Clearly this photo has been digitally enhanced to look like I am actually laying next to Tanner. wow, Mom sure is getting good at that uhm photo stuff. I mean because I would NEVER really lay next to him like that. I mean the thought of it just makes me writhe in pain...

Great job Mom.

GREAT weekend guys!

Guys, yesterday Mom and Dad started gathering stuff up and packing up a bag and I was like, oh great, where are THEY going. Then I saw them packing some treats and a baggy of dog food. Where are WE going?! Well, we went to my Grandparent's house and stayed overnight!!! OMDOG it was GREAT!

The humans went to some place where they do something called Teppanyaki?? I dunno what that is but Mom said it is really fun and the food was delicious. Then she showed me this photo...

OMDOG its like they almost lit my whole family on FIRE?!?! The humans are so freakin weird if they think this is fun????

THIS is what is fun...

I love my Grandpa and I love to give him kisses. Many dogs do not know that back when I was a younger dog I used to spend a week at my Grandparent's then a week at my Parent's house. WHY? Because people love me SO much they insisted on joint custody!! Then Tanner came and I had to stay with my parent's full time. This is not bad, but Gram and Gramps sure do give me a LOT more treats than Mom and Dad.

We were pretty tired by this morning...

The Doof didn't even mind spending time in his Little House.

You want to know WHY we are so tired...

CAT PATROL! The neighbors have a million cats and they love to come in front of the house.

OMDOG THERE IS ONE!?!??!!! (notice the Doofus looking the completely wrong way)

GET OUT OF HERE!!! this as we tell that cat to get the heck away from this house...(mom gets so mad when we do bitey face when we start yelling, she said we are going to hurt each other, whatever!)

Mom had to stop the video so we didn't ruin the blinds. I don't think Grandma and Grandpa would care because we were keeping them safe from the cat!!

I sure hope your weekend was as great as ours!!!

Cheer Up Friends!!

There have been a lot of sad losses on DWB's lately and we have been sort of down...

Even the Doofus was not his happy self...

But then Dad told us that a lot of dogs and humans look to us to make them smile, so we decided to make this post. We found some old 'lost' video footage of us, some of which shows us acting like goofs, but we decided to share it with you in hopes of making you smile...

And if that doesn't work, take a look at this...

Mom subscribes to this magazine called Newsweek. I told her its a waste of money because it should be called "Lastweek" since its all crap that already happened.

Anyway, I do like to read through it if I have some time...

I noticed an article about Doctors prescribing blogging to patients as a form of therapy. It made me think about how much this blog helps me out.

I mean, you guys saw that post yesterday, you see what I live with. You guys out there keep me sane when I clearly live with a mildly psychotic dog. I don't know if blogging is therapeutic for him but he sure sleeps well at night.

What do you guys think, is this stuff therapeutic for you???

Monday UGGGH

I don't really like Mondays. I know that on Monday that tomorrow is Tanner Tuesday. I also know that Mom and Dad go back to work and so there is much less possibility for getting treats.

bleeeh, I need something to do you guys beat the Monday blues???

Tanner, I don't think 'eating the yummy garbage' is going to make the day any better. I hope you all have some good suggestions for me.

You are forgiven...

So I have been pretty mad at the humans, as you can imagine. Today Mom decided to redeem herself so I wouldn't be mad at her all weekend!

So you know its like SO hot here right...

What is better on a hot day than...


Well, I will tell you ....

frosty paws with frozen BLUEBERRIES! They lots of fiber which is good for Tanner's broken butt!

Mom put it in those nice bowls for us, but oh no...

I gotta eat it on the carpet, its been a long time since I made a proper stain.

And since I did it, Tanner had to as well!

We sort of forgot about the blueberries

OMDOG how do I love Frosty Paws...

Let me count the ways...

Tanner sure seems to like them too!

He is such a DORK!

I did go back and finish those blueberries don't you worry...

And don't worry, Tanner is still a DOOFUS!

OMDOG it is SO HOT here in that AZ right now. Mom and Dad watch some show called MASH but its not about potatoes its about Doctors and war and medisins! Well one time they did a show about some medisin called a Plu See Bo. Its like you thinks the medisins is helping so you FEEL better, even though its not really doing one thing at all!! its pretend!!!!!

SO I said to JOE lets plu see bo it to think that it is really COLD and its like brrrr freezing and we can believe that instead of it being hotterest!

Hmm JOE are you cold under these blankets because it is SO COLD.

NO??? hmmmm well hmmmm I guess I am not really that cold either. I don't think this Plu See Bo stuff works????? But now I am REALLY comfortable...

HEY Mom Can you turn up that Air Conditioning PLEASE!!!?!?!?!?!!!

Manic Monday

Hey guys, I got an award from Lorenza for being a daily blogger. Sometimes we skip a day, when the secretary is being lazy, but we try to update every day!

Thanks Lorenza!

Today it was about 110 degrees here, that is hot. We feel bad for all the doggies who are living with all the rains and floods and wish we could send some of our dry hot air to you.

Yesterday was the official first day of Monsoon season here in AZ. That means storms are coming and dust will start flying all through the air. I hate this time of year. I am going to go keep an eye out for storms, if any do come, you can find me in the bathroom...

What a treat

So Tanner was totally tired after the vet! I don't know if it was the shots, the heat or the stress but he was SO NICE to be around, because he was asleep!

He slept on the couch.

He slept on his little bed.

When he was awake he was studying...

He is taking this D-Backs collar very seriously and decided he should learn all of the players.

So far his favorite player is Eric Byrnes

As you can see, he is kind of a Doofus.

Tanner also likes him because he can fly like he does.

He couldn't even stay awake to look at all his cards. I am loving this Vet thing, I wonder if it was the loss of blood? Anyone know where I can get some leeches...
