Joe Stains

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

Tuesday, August 26, 2008


Number ONE: Our friend GUS is HOME and he had a lump removed kinda like when I did and had a big ouchy...Click on his name and go over there and tell him GET BETTER. I looked like this with my ouchy...

still wants to guard the door

TWO: Wife Lillie doesn't like me being a PIMP so I am done with that OK. (don't worry I kept that SWEET necklace though)
lillie and tanner
Lillie's HUMAN pup is going to have a birthday right when I have a birthday TOO, isn't that the coolerest?!?!!


Joey is still a BIG BABY and hides in that bathroom during storms. I was OUTSIDE with Mom during that storm and she was reading some Book and I was barking at that Thunder trying to tell it to GO AWAY so Joey would get out of that bathroom!


This is a SNEEK PREEVIEW! We got this book in the mail...its about your HUMANS figuring out what kind of DOG they really are?! The lady who made that Book wanted US to try it and see if we liked it.

WHATSUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPPPPPP LORI, we totally got the book and we are going to make Mom and Dad see what kind of dog they are THIS WEEK. OK? If we think this book is fun then she said she will send us some to give away like a CONTEREST!!!! OMDOG that sounds fun. I think we should play GUESS HOW MANY HAIRS JOEY HAS ON HIS BELLY. Cuz its like 5, trust me dudes. Its fu uhm freakin hilarious!


Friday is my day that I got to ARIZONA to live with Joey and the Mom and the Dad!


Tom, Tanner and Noah
This was me the VERY first time Mom and Dad ever saw me when they came to OHIO to get me for a visit before I moved.

I was SO tiny!

Which way to AZ LETS GO!!!

OMDOG this is the longerest post ever for me I think and now I need the hugerest NAP!

Tanner Man!

Thanks for the updates, and for all the great photos of you, Joe and the FAM!

I can't believe it's almost your Gotcha Day! You are one clever doofus to have adopted Joey and the parents. They're lucky to have you. You know they would not have laughed half as much as they have these past 3 years if you weren't there with them.

Be good to your wife, LIllie. She loves you, even if you are no longer a pimp. (Sweet necklace, by the way.)

Goober love,

Gee Tanner, seeing those pictures of you does tend to imply that you might have "filled out" a bit too much recently.

Your dad looks like he is really looking you over in that pic! I am sure he was saying to himself "Man that Tanner is one handsome dog!"

I hope that your bro has come out of the bathroom! He must have been really scared cuz it looked like he had a cool treat and wasn't even touching it!! What's with that? Poor dude. Tell him my mom is also a little scared of big storms...although doubtful that she'd turn her nose up at a cookie or ice cream.

What a pawsome post!
