WHATSSSSSSSUUUUUUUUUPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!! DUDES?! I am here for more laughings for sad dogs. I have decided that I do not like that name Tanner STAINS because that is one Joey's name. I think I want to be called Tanner Torkelson. I think it Sounds VERY sofistikhated!!! TAN Torkelson here to report on TROTTIN Tuesday!!! We like how KHYRA does that WALKIN Wensday so I said, I want to do a TROTTIN TUESDAY!!!! READY??

This is the first thing we see. the GIANT school next to our house.

Here is a video of us walkin by it...

Mom doesn't like to talk on these Movies, but that is the school, and um some bushes. She stinks at this camera movies stuff!!!

We had to check peemails here because look at this...

That guy is a SAMOYED Husky, just like Joe's older brother LOBO who is over that Rainbow Bridge. I bets he and Freda are telling 1,2 1,2 a LOT of stories about Joey.

In this movie, we cross the street to pees on on a bush, then Mom shows some palm trees.

We have lots of cool trees and stuff here that you may not have.

We have these called CatGut trees, they are OUCHY and you cannot pee on them. (OMG its a CACTUS, -Joey)

This tree grows lemons!!

People don't have lots of grass here cuz its the desert and it is SO dry!! SO they have pretty rocks instead.

I like to help water since it IS a desert.

We also have cool mountains.

OMDOG Mom is a complete doofus in this next movie when she realizes there is a smudge on the camera. LOL

I am very busy on our walks running around listening for other doggies...

Towards the end of the walk, we go in the big parking lot at that skhool so there are no distractions and we just run run run run run...

Then it is back home while the sunsets...

I hope you liked our little walkhing tour!!! your friend, TAN TORKELSON!

I love Tan Torkelson. Great name. That last video, where you walk over those words "drop off" would only play in slow motion for me. It looked pretty cool that way.

Hey Tan Torkelson. I want to know if Joey always likes to be ahead of you when you are walking? Peanut always wants to be ahead of me.

Umm... Mom has all kinds of weird old music layin' around on these frisbee-lookin' things called "records". There's some group called "The Monkees" that has a guy named Peter Torkelson who went by Peter Tork. I'm just wooin', as Khyra would say.

Blogger Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hey...the Army of Four just confirmed Mumsie's distant memories of Peter Tork's (Monkees) full name....a relation, Tanner??? got yourself in a dither was a HOOOOOOOGE STAIN...

You're just going to hafta think of a way to make it a little more diggnified... gave Lacie the Stain Award...I didn't sense any hesitation there...ur not considerin' her a Great Lady??


Uncontrolled snorts of hysterical dale/foxy laughter at what Joey just got himself into...

Mom says Arizona is cool. But I think she meant "hot."

I would miss kicking up grass though...but it sure looks nice!

I loved Tan Torkelson!!! I can't wait until the next trottin Tuesday!! Mom, nice camara work, I loved the wipe off action. Oh I loved your Dad's shirt, it looked like it was something about Boston's. SWEET!!!!

Sloppy Licks,

Blogger Mango said...

The synchronized peeing is fantastic! You could totally be in the next pawlympics with that one.

Tanner, you might want to rethink the camera angles. You know how the camera adds 20 pounds and, well, maybe the hiney view is not your most flattering.

Those are some nutty trees you have out there.

Dear TanTork. Thank you for all the pictures of home. It made me and Teka kinda homesick. I haven't peed AT a cactus in months! I hope I don't forget about keeping a respectful distance.

Can we call you Tork? Torkie?

Thanks for the tour of your neighborhood. We try really hard to water the plants on our street too!

Blogger T-man's mom said...

I loved that walking tour, and am SO jealous that your dad can wear shorts outdoors this time of year. It's freezing here in Chicago now!! We don't have those plants here or mountains, so they were fun to see.

Good name choice too! I'd go for it!

Blogger Dannan and The Girl said...

BOL, Tan Torkelson! Wroooooo, good name, buddy! I LOVE it!!!

Those cactus things look like they would be pretty nasty. Sometimes when I'm doing my boy doggy pee, I lose my balance and need to rest against the thing I'm peeing on. I think I really wouldn't like that...

Brown dog kisses (extra for TORK!),

I think Tan Torkelson sounds like a movie star or a football hero. Either way, you're great, man!

LOVED the walking tour. I noticed that you and Joe have almost identical markings, man... except for the D-Dot on your head.

Goob love,

Gee Tanner...

Nice tour of yer neighborhood.....reminds us of a song we all love:

It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

It's a neighborly day in this beauty wood,
A neighborly day for a beauty.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

I've always wanted to have a neighbor just like you.
I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.

So, let's make the most of this beautiful day.
Since we're together we might as well say:
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won't you be my neighbor?
Won't you please,
Won't you please?
Please won't you be my neighbor?

Now ya made us sad too cause it's warm enough there fer shorts...'n we're freezin' our butts off...why our peemail is freezin' right outta our mechanism....fer be a good neighbor and send up some of that warm stuff right yer tour Tanner.....we'll call ya Terrific Tanner !!

Oh yeah and Happy Thanksgivin' !!!!

Hi Tanner! Tan Torkelson, that is a perfect name for you!
I loved your Trottin Tuesday - you guys have so much cool stuff that we do not have! My mom was really jealous that your dad is wearing shorts and she has to put on boots and a coat with hat and mittens!
Is it ok if I do a Trottin Tuesday next week? I can show how much different my walks look!
Love Clover xo
