Times, they are a changing....

First of all, I had the most amazingly solid poop yesterday. I just had to share that with you. I think I still need a bit of time to adjust to this new food but so far I love the taste, my furs are soft and my poo is getting better. Slowly but surely we hope!!

NEXT we have to talk about Baseball. again. I KNOW I talk about it all the time but really, its such a big deal at my house.

Tanner's team, the Dbacks have been doing pretty darn bad. Tonight he was in the TV room playing with what is left of the squid sea creature...













Our Grandpa called to tell us that the Dbacks FIRED their Manager!!




WTF?!?!?!?!?!??!! omdog Tanner is sort of feeling lost right now. I sure hope that for his sake they pick a good replacement!

As for me? The Yankees SUCK. SUCK SUCK SUCK. Argh. I think I am going to take up a new hobby because watching baseball is NO fun anymore.




What about painting? We sure do have lots of art books around here for some reason...




I like these guys, nice and dark and brooding. I am going to go study this art stuff and see if it is as exciting as baseball.

i think all hobbies have the good times and the bad times...maybe you should start your own doggy brothel...you can get yourself alot of girls that want babies...and boys can pay you big bucks to be the daddy...that is a good job..you could make a fortune...and imagine all the girls swarming around you guys...(i am fixed whatever that means)

Oh, well, it is too bad about your baseball teams. Sometimes that happens to me during football season and then I say football is OVER and I try to ignore it but I can't.

I think that Munch guy sounds good. Does he paint pictures of himself munching on thing? That is art I would enjoy.

wally t.

ps. Poop is a regular topic of discussion around here, too. The sheps have sensitive tums so they are always having firmness issues. My poop rocks! Glad to hear you're liking the new food!

Joe, Mom says art is a good hobby, but she sees a huge opportunity for you. That Munch painting on that cover has been stolen almost more than any other painting in the world (maybe because there is more than one version of it). You should put your detective coat on and solve those art theft crimes. OMD!!!! You could solve that mystery and then sell your story to Tom Hanks and he can make it into a movie and you will be rich and come visit me in Montreal any time you feel like it.

Art is great, but nothing is as exciting as baseball! The Marlins are so aggravating - you should hear my dad yelling at them - but we love them and we'll never stop hoping they'll get some sense. Anyway, as my dad says, it's a long season. Congrats on the poops!

See ya!

I think if Tanner calls up those Dbacks and introduces himself as a Boston manager, they might hire him to manage those Dbacks!

Joey, Remember - most artists only become successful after they are dead. How about bird watching? You have the supplies right in your yard!

Congrats on your rock-solid poop, Joey! That's great!

I wanted to warn you that artists get kinda crazy... that one dude cut his ear off. Kinda seems like something Tanner would do, eh?

We have a suggestion. We know how much you love baseball and so do we.

So you might see this coming: what about learning to love our St. Loulis Cardinals. They can be very very frustrating, such as when they caved and turned into zombies against the Red Sox. On the other paw -- they have Albert Pawjols and several new Greenies, and Tony La Russa has his own animal rescue foundation - ARF.

Just a thought :)

As for the poop: Please tell us again what the food is. Mom is so discouraged at how mine can be fine one day and yuck the next that she might like to try a change.

Congrats though. We know how much it means to our pawrents who have to scoop!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake

Take a ride on the Big Red Machine!!! We're always looking for some riders (even if you do get off at the next stop when your teams start doing better). Go Reds!

Have a great Mom's Day Weekend!

Thanks for the poo update - may it continue to be a solid report.

Maybe you need to become a Royals fan - we are holding our breath because they are doing so well right now. Maybe you could come to a game and stop in for a visit.

Woos, the OP Pack

Dear Joseph,
Please share your paintings with us if you have any successful attempts! I am sorry about your baseball teams. I'm more of a basketball dog myself. Basketballs make great pillows to rest on!
Luv,

Haha....we think Tanner should take up 'gurning'...he's so good at it! Or maybe diving....since you collect weird sea critters.
Sorry your teams are doing crap....baseball means nothing to us so we don't really understand but hope things improve!
Congratulations on your improved poops, we're so happy for ya :D
