Tanner Learning Day!!

So I came OUT of my bomb shelter for a bit to see the humans but they are SO BORING...

All they do is watch that baseball or read those books. Books are good for standing on, but I dunno what else??! See Dad is reading some Frankenstein book which is probably scary. You can see it bored me RIGHT TO SLEEP...

I wanted to see what Mom is reading because maybe it was more interesting. WHO IS FRANK?!?!?!? omdog?! She said he is an ArrKiTech. Is that like a technician that is a Pirate specialist?!? hmm no she said he makes houses and buildings and he was also quite a character! Hey, he sounds kinda like ME!! I am designing a new Bomb shelter and I am a character for SURE.

Because my humans collect those books like they are going out of STYLE of course she has OTHER books on this Frank dude. Lets see what we have in here...

HEY this house is on the way to our Gram and Gramps house. HOW cool is that?! I asked Mom if that is why she likes this old dead dude so much and she said NO its because when she was in school she got to go visit one of his most popularerest houses, Falling Water. She got to go TWO times and really loved it.

Here it is in that big book. It said that this house is built over a water fall and the water even comes IN the house and there are steps leading all the way into the water!

What do you think guys, should I add a WATER FALL to my Bomb Shelter?!?!?! Do you think Mom would mind?!?!?

Maybe these Books arent SO BAD?!

A waterfall inside your bomb shelter is a fabulous idea, Tanner! You'll have your own free drinking water -as much of it as you'll ever want!

Love ya lots,

Tanner, we think a waterfall is a great idea. Probably be for the best if you have it to the side somewhere save your bed getting soggy.

I believe a waterfall would be quite nice, especially since it gets very hot in Arid Zona and you get get heat frustration.

My Momma is always reading dumb books too... sometimes even when she should be talking to ME!

For Joe's sake I think you should definitely stay IN your bomb shelter as much as possible. And you could always make your own waterfalls if you drink enough water.

The only thing with the waterfall is that won't it make you feel like going peepee a lot??

Hmmm...a waterfall might be a bit much of a leap in your first project, I think Frank did that one late in his career. Maybe just a working faucet.

My mom loves Falling Water, but she has never actually been there. Your mom is really lucky. Maybe if you recreate it in your bombshelter, I can convince mom to take us to Arizona.

omdog my mom is always READING too!

A waterfall sounds neat, but I think you should put a SLURPEE MACHINE in your bomb shelter instead.

A waterfall sounds ok, but a martini fountain would be even better.

A waterfall sounds perfect - a built in pool for cooling down in that hot place you live.

We think a waterfall in the bomb shelter would be "the bomb", lol.

My Old Girl and Mr. Jason love those books, too, and I don't get it at all. I think books are good for: a) chewing, b) peeing on, c) both.
Anyways, good luck on your building project! Interesting info about the Frankfellow.

Water in the bomb shelter will just cause mold and then you would have to go to the VET to get medicine for the spores in your lungs. Don't do it. Nothing is worth a visit to the VET.

Oh, Tanner, yes! I think a waterfall would make a delightful addition to your bomb shelter! It will keep you from getting dehydrated, too. Go for it!

A lot of reading goes on at our house, too, and I agree that it is BORING and not BOINGing!

if you got some flour we could make papermache things to float down your waterfall with all the books...

Tanner, you are smarterest. I love that picture of your spotted tummy!

Oh what a sweet little pink tummy you have!
Moving on of course you should have a waterfall in your bomb shelter if you want.
You could use it to supply your electricity - hydroelectric bomb shelter!
Every dog should have one!
Tanner you are a dog ahead of your time - at the forefront of canine design and engineering. Your tummy is still very cute though.....
love and kisses

Wait a minit! I like the idea Beckett had about the Slurpee machine but lets go a little further and have a Soda Fountain!
Tanner could be behind the counter, with a cute white vest and a cute hat and make malts, sodas, icecream cones, banana splitters, endless goodies. How about that?

Hi, Tanner...

I think your Mom would be very happy if you put a Waterfall in your Bomb Shelter under the bed...
