Joe Stains

This is the blog of an angry old boston terrier. (and his little brother Tanner who gets to post every Tuesday)

Monday, June 30, 2008


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.

Joe! I'm worried your mom is going to put a big orange halo around you. Actually, that might be kind of cute.


P.S. Of course you weren't laying next to the Doof

Hey maybe your Mom can teach my Mom about digitizing, but she's so disgusted with computers by the time she gets home it's hard to get her to blog for me, much less digitize anything. I'll just enjoy your Mom's work.

Good evening joey.
Absent-mindedly at a beautiful sunrise.
Time is time of iron plate good wonderful.
The advancement of a digital technology is intense.
The thing that becomes a man ahead is possible.
Here, it is possible to become an another dog.

Uh, what's with the hand on the butt?

I know that shot of you and Doofus is enhanced cause it kind of looks like you're both just staring at the wall and you wouldn't do that, would you?

Blogger Lola Smiles said...

come on now, we all know U & the doofus are best best buds! ;)

Your mom is great with that camera! :)

Awesome Joey, your mom is an artist. I particularly like the highlighting in your ear.

Blogger Mango said...

Oh man... how embarassing! Maybe I am closer to the Doofus in intellect if I can't tell you two apart. If it had been a butt shot it would have been easier to distinguish.

Yeah, your mom is pretty sneaky, making you look like you are touching Tanner. You may not be able to trust her much anymore, Joey. It might be wise to keep your investigator jacket nearby and sleep with one eye open.

Wow, your Mom is amazing! I can't even tell that that picture of you 2 is a fake!!!

She's better than my girl - she turned one of our pictures blue and couldn't figure out how to turn it back.

Maybe she could take a few pounds off the Tan-Man next time...?

The picture is very cool. I love how it glows.

That would be Doofus with a capital D.

Grammie got a new camera. Do you think she can make all of us look better. Probably not.
It looked like great fun at your grandparents. They look like a fun couple. No wonder you like staying with them.
