Rock and Roll

If you don't know our Dad has been playing drums for a million years and just started filling in for a band he used to be in while they search for a permanent drummer. He had to get his drums back in order and of COURSE Tanner had to help...

We call this 'little help', cuz at one time Tanner was really little, so everything he does was called 'little'. Perhaps now it should be called 'chubby help'? He HAS to stick his nose right in to everything you are doing!

When Dad is out at practice I stay VERY alert for ALL noises as it MIGHT be my Dad coming home. Usually Mom locks us in the bedroom with her with the TV on loud so we aren't barking at the front door every time a car goes down our street.

So we look like this...

And then this happens...

I WANT to sleep so bad, but I keep hearing things, any of those things COULD be my Dad coming home. BTW in this video, it totally wasn't my Dad coming home, oops.

What a pain to have to be up all night on guard duty. Maybe you guys could take turns or something.

guard duty is tuff, but someone has to do it! we know the sounds of all our peoples cars. we also know the sound right before the pop tart will pop out of the toaster, but that's another kind of guard duty!

We are flippin terriers. Barking is what we do. Why don't the hoomans understand. That big old fire monkey is always telling us to be quiet and wanting to squirt us with a water bottle. He is such a goof.

Joey, You sure can shoot up really fast! I bark when I hear anyone at the front door too. There was once I even alerted my daddy when some people try to break into out neighbour's house.

When Daddy had his drums here, I ran and hid under the bed every time he went near them.

Hi, Joey...

I know what you mean...You never know who is driving by or walking by or THINKING of walking by...You have to be on guard all the time...

Damn Joey, I can't watch your video because I will apparently disturb the peace around here. I'll have to watch it later when I can turn the sound on.

Mom says imagine that exact tame situation but with a much larger dog and that's what happens at our house! I do a lot of pacing until Dad finally comes in, also.

I like my sleep more than my apes. But I can hear the fridge door being cracked from four rooms away and in a deep slumber.
