Taking Care of Dad

Yesterday we took good care of Dad, who is still not feeling well, but is going to TOUGH IT OUT and go to a Spring Training game today. TOUGH LIFE Dad. I have to stay home with the Doofus.

Yesterday we were very attentive to Dad, making sure he had everything he needed.

WHAT MOM?? Oh, she said stop begging from Dad he was not sharing his food.

Begging? No way, we were umm just asking if he needs more tissues...

How is Mom always figuring out what we are doing, she must have this place rigged with cameras or something.

And for all of you worrying that Dad won't get proper snuggles, don't worry Tanner is all about the hugs.

Here is a video of him getting love from Dad while he tries to clean up some crumbs on Dad's shirt.

Stay tuned tomorrow when Tanner reveals something new he has been working on...

How will your Dad possibly survive the spring training game? It will be rough, Joe... He might even have to drink a beer to stay hydrated!

I am afraid to say it... but Tanner was really cute snuggling! Kinda made me wanna smooch him...

If he's not feeling well he should probably stay home and snuggle with Tanner and you can go to the game and eat HOT DOGS. Mmmm.

Joey, You are so lucky to have a Tanner to satisfy all those weird snuggle urges that people get. My mom is always trying to hug me. Ick!

so you guys are just so handsome...I often take care of mom and dad much the way you two take care of your dad...the only difference is that mom is a huuuuuuuuge softy and always shares...which is probably why ui am a little more fluffy than i should be...

HI, Joey!
why your mom thought you two were begging for food?? I can see clearly you just want to make sure he is doing well!
Yes, I have to say it too... Tanner is adorable snuggling with your dad!
Kisses and hugs

We hope your dad feels better, but it's nice that Tanner is willing to snuggle with him in the meantime.

Hope your dad gets better soon! And I think he should feed you guys as reward for looking after him.

I hope your Dad did not pass any of his sick germs to Tanner. Tanner would milk it for all it was worth!

Would you sit on Tanner's bed and take care of him when he was sick? Neither would I.

Be your own dog, Joe, thats all any of us can do.

Good thing Tanner likes to snuggle. I hate being turned on mu back, but I like to snuggle. Dawson is the one always like the clothing.
Tough for your Dad to have to get up from his sick bed and go to a spring training game. He is a trooper.

Awwww... Nothing better than snuggling with the hoomans :)
Big licks to you

Poor Dad is looking kinda flushed - so glad you are both being so attentive!
As for Tanner - not sure if he is snuggly or an opportunist!
lots of love

Cripes, maybe you shouldn't get too close to your dad. He might pass his germs onto you....
Hope he feels better soon.

Tanner is such a suck up. Unbelievable!

Joey, you are going to just have to grit your teeth and do some of that snuggling too if you want to get any of your dad's sickie foodables.

How you mom know?! Even I know! You got it in the eyes ... the 'If i stare at yoos human long enough you'd give me your foooooddddddd...'

So did you both succeed??

I hope your dad made it to the game yesterday. With all of Tanner's loving, how could he not be feeling 100%?

Even though Tanner had ulterior motives I am glad he still snuggled with dad to help him feel better.

Tanner is very good at multitasking! I'll have to remember that snuggle & crumb clean up move next time Mom and Dad aren't feeling good!

Tanner, you're a real good helper! I'll bet your dad-dad will be better in NO time!
