Lazy Sunday

So Mom hasn't been checking blogs and we have about 200 posts in our reader to catch up on, so we will be around later this weekend. We may not get to comment on each blog because Mom has a poor work ethic, but we will be reading. She said tomorrow is Labor Day so she gets to have the day off to relax. what a bum!


She has been home and we were able to do some sunning earlier in the week which we forgot to post about.

Tanner tends to slow roast himself until his little brains are like scrambled eggs.

You can see here his face is starting to get that look where any second he might go into heat stroke.

So he sticks his tongue out and goes into 'super panting' mode.

Then he gets mad because Mom says its time to come in.

So he pleads his case, but by this point his brain is totally fried and it just comes out as WHATSSSSSSSUUUUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPPP!?! Even sunning is an adventure when the Doofus is involved.

Hey Joe, How is it you stay so much slimmer than the Doofus? Are you on a different diet or what?

You really look good, Joe.

Maybe Tanner needs one of those little pop-up thermometers to say when he should come in!

Well... I just read what Dennis the Vizsla wrote. In theory, it sounds like a great idea. But you KNOW where they stick that thermometer!!! YIKES!

Yeah, the RH does the same things. He bakes until he is hot to the touch and too dumb to figure out how to even stand up again. Do you think they are related?

BOL! I agree with Vizla... you needs a turkey pop-up thermometer to make sure that the scrambled eggs are fully done!

Phantom likes to fry in the sun too, but Mom makes him come in. TD likes the air vents best:)

Did Tan tan well, ha ha. Y'all look comfy outside. Make sure and put some sun block on, as you don't want to get a sunburn.

Hi, Joey!
Sure Tanner loves the sun!
I just imagine his fried brain!
Kisses and hugs

Hey Joe, I bet you are so cool that you never pant. Poor Tanner. His brain is probably completely shriveled from the heat.

My doofus brother has been sucking up big time to the teenage girls who are staying with us this weekend -- doing all sorts of sleeping with them and stuff. No dignity, I tell you. He could learn some stuff from you and I.

That must be why Arrow is the way he is. He likes to fry in the sun too. I never understood it before.
