Something To SAY!

This is Tan Torkelson and I KNOW it is ONLY Monday night here where I am posting this but I gotta get on here and say A couple of things OK?!

Everyone is VERY sad about our good buddy Bogart's Dad going over that rainbow bridge. We know that his wife Lulu has to be the most sadderest person in the world right now and Bogart is probably more confused than I usually am... BUT you know something...

Mom says I am BLISSFUL right? and like I am obliverious or um oblivinating, or like I don't GET stuff most of the time. BUT you know what I DO GET?! I met this guy, Klaus and his BOOTIFUL wife and their SUPER fun dog because we all belong to the besterest community in the whole entire world, DOGS WITH BLOGS. We are all sad right now, but we also need to remember that the LITTLE time we get with our dogs and sometimes the people we love needs to be CELEBRATED too!

We saw a million pics of Bogarts Dad and he was ALWAYS smiling and having fun. So we think you should all take the time to grab a BEER, since Klaus was such a beer dude he MADE HIS OWN, and celebrate Klaus and our wonderful community and SEND some of those smiles TO Lulu and Bogart. (if you don't like BEER have some like um soda or umm milk??!?!)

Mom and Dad will drink those for Klaus, our friend, that while we did not know him for very longerest, has touched our lives AND made me so proud to be a DOG WITH A BLOG. (even if I only get to post on Tuesdays)

Its only 9am and I'm raising a glass of Guinness (well technically Mum is because she claims I will get sick if I drink it... yeah right!) I'd like to think Klaus would approve, all good beer dudes will tell you its never too early for a beer!
It's not usually Mum's choice of liquid refreshment, she is much more of a Coors Light kinda gal but Grandad brought her the dark stuff and kinda insisted she get it down her neck.. something to do with her having not enough iron (which leads me to believe my suspicions are right and she is some kind of flesh covered robot!!)
Great suggestion Tanner, you are not quite as dooferish as you appear are you buddy?

Mom said no beer for us, but she will add some tomato juice and ice to our water so we can toast Klaus' life. Meanwhile she will have a nice hot cup of tea.

Tanner, your post is awesome. It reminded Mommy of a song from Les Miserables...

Drink with me to days gone by
To the life that used to be.

At the shrine of friendship, never say die.
Let the wine of friendship never run dry.

Here's to you and here's to me...

Here's to us, pals!

I'm turning on the espresso machine and getting ready to watch Motch enjoy a hot sugarfree carmel latte in honor of Klaus... praying that a bean falls to the floor that I can eat.

My dear Joe,

Klaus would have LOVED this tribute... having a frosty brew was one of his favorite things, just after mama and me (well, sometimes more than us but only sometimes).

Many thanks, my friend,

Bogart & Lulu

Hehe, this is one of the best tributes we have seen for Klaus, proving that you can be sad and funny at the same time, we love it!
(have you read about Klaus's 666 trick? So funny!)
We love beer too....and Bermuda Rum, but Snoop is scared of empty bottles...come to think of it, aren't we all?
