Joe Stains

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

Wednesday, October 15, 2008


Mom has been busy at work, then you would think she would want to come home and devote ALL of her attention to ME. WRONG.

Mom and Dad have been doing THIS after work:

They are going to AZ Fall League Baseball games, WITHOUT ME. I bet those guys in the picture up there are talking about how I am not at the game and I should be!

Life is so not fair sometimes.

I guess I will just rest while they are gone...

By the way, I think it is getting colder in AZ...I seem to need my blankets more...

Hi Joey,
You mean they went to the games without you??!! Did they make it up to you after that? Extra treats? Extra toys? Cuddles??

Glad your mom likes the T-shirt!! (yeah.. the doggy kinda reminded us of Tanner!! Shhh.. don't tell him I said that!)

My mom is jealous of fall league baseball. There's a AA team (Diamondbacks affiliate) here but they play in the summer and it is so freaking hot, humid, and stormy here that she doesn't go as often as she'd like.

They did have a Hounds at the Hank day this summer though, and dogs could go to the stadium!

Look at you all cutie pie in your blankies. At least they aren't at home trying to kiss you on the muzzle all the time or something annoying like that.

It should be a rule that people don't get to go places without their dogs. Fun places, anyway. An exception to the rule would be groomers and vets; people should go to them alone. And no dog should be forced out in the EVIL rain!

Make them feel guilty when they get home. You had to bundle up in blankets instead of sucking their warmth out through their laps!

Brown dog kisses,

It's been warm here the past few days, but it's supposed to drop tomorrow. We have double coat fur, tho, so we're usually okay until it's really really cold.

Your hoomans are so mean. Maybe you should make some few stains here & there just to show them how you felt when they went & enjoyed themselves without handsome you.

Your mom and dad have been playing baseballs? Is that your dad swinging the bat?

At least you can snuggle in private and not have the forced Doofus cuddle time.

Your parent are truly being thoughtless about this baseball thing. How can they go anywhere without you. Get in that sleeping bag and refuse to come out until they warm the place up.
A Doofus Award. This could be bigger than the Oscar. Who should be the MC for the live cast. Congrats to Scruffy. Truly someone who knows no bounds.

Hi Joey! Sorry we have been away. but I have read up on all your posts to catch up(mom finally got the puter staightened out-she hopes).
Why your parents leave you at home? Because they are THOUGHTLESS and inconsderate is why!! Hmmphh. Humans. Think they run the world or something, the big bosses of everything....We know better, don't we Joey.

When your Mom comes home, trip her! I did that a couple nights ago and after my Mom was done saying some very bad words, she has been sitting on the couch whinning about how much her knee hurts and whenever Dad asks if she wans to go somewhere she says no cuz her knee hurts.
The bad part is she's grumpy and whines a lot, BUT she's home with me!

At first I thought they were playing baseball. I could understand if they were actually playing and not taking you - because they'd be busy and might not have time to rub your tummy or get you snacks. But if they're just there WATCHING... ??? Seriously. They need to take you with them!

At least you have a team to watch...our Cubs are no longer playing here :(

I'm sure those players were discussing your absence. I'm surprised they didn't mention on the sports news because it must have disrupted their game.

Please Joey's mom and dad, don't forget to take Joey (and Tanner) next time!
