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

Before you get too carried away...

Granted Tanner was very brave yelling at that big doggy (while safely held in Mom's arms) but I have to tell you, he still has his very special moments.

The other night I walked in to Dad's room and this is what I saw...

trying to figure out how to perform his own jailbreak

I asked him WTF he was doing and he said he was trying to 'listen to that cd, because it was about making a jailbreak'. I asked why he had his eyes squeezed shut, he said he was concentrating very hard as he could not seem to hear the CD.

*smacks forehead*

He really is a Doofus sometimes...

Well, we know he's a Doofus, but is he Doofus enough to break out of your house? Your peeps rock, dude! Someone ought to tell him.

Uh-oh, I think that's why Tanner needs a big brother so he can learn...everything!! Are you going to teach him about cd's, or let him keep squinting (hee hee)? He does look pretty funny!

Here is something to try: Tell him that his nose is the volume knob and give it a few turns. If he thinks it works, let him be, if not keep turning!

My mom said to do this, I think it might be bad, though.

What can you DO, man?! You've got to work with the pup you've got. Looks like he's trying to listen by osmosis. Maybe he's onto something.

He sure is SPECIAL.

Goob love & sympathy,

Christmas, naps, leftovers and trying to listen to a CD. You guys have the best life. Poor mom and all those scratches. Stupid dog owner, not having his dog on a leash.

Did you help him out Joey? He needs guidance matie.

We just read about what happened on your walk the other night. For a moment we thought the bad doggie did that to your mum. So glad you guys weren't hurt. That man should keep his dog on a lead....what a plonker.

Concentrating? I make that face when I do poops.

OH my.

Maybe he has to stay out of that room with the CD's. I am afraid that he will either try to eat one or stick his tail in the outlet to see if he is out of power

Move quick Joe
this could be a very real problem

We had a run in with a dog today that took a toll on me. I may need to hire Tan Torkelson's services. This makes me think twice about it, though.

Such a trial that Tanner is! You put up with a lot, Joey. Has your treat allowance gone up since he came to live with you guys? It totally should.
