Things that go bump in the night...

The other night we were watching some baseball when I heard some terrible thumping and fussing at the front door. I was all, WTF?!

We opened the door to discover the postman had left us an envelope, many many many hours ago. Uh Oh...

IT WAS FLAT BRUTUS!! He was outside all day in the 115 degree heat! OMDOG!!!

Tanner helps him to bed
Tanner immediately took him to our blanket fort in the dog room.

Tanner tries to resuscitate from the wrong end
He started to do CPR...but on the wrong end!! I had to step in and take control at this point.

straight to the freezer for flat brutus
There we go, that is better!! I think he is coming around now.

Joey makes sure Brutus is ok
Are you ok buddy?? I think he is going to be just fine. whew!! I know what will make him feel even more relaxed...

he survived a day on the porch
That's right buddy, just relax. You have had a long and hot journey to get here.

THEN we will start the partying!! :)

OMD, poor FB - out in all that heat! How nice of you to work so hard to get him all cooled down. Bet he is quite comfy on that NY Yankees blankie.

Can't wait to hear about all his fun with you and Tanner.

Hi, Joey!
Oh-oh! All day in the hot weather??
I am not so sure about Tanner's CPR technique.... I guess you did it right letting him cool in the freezer!
Flat Brutus looks great on your Yankee's blanket!
I hope he is feeling better now so you can start having fun!
Kisses and hugs

I only hope he doesn't end up with some brainal problems from being out in that heat all day. I am glad he still had the ability to thump around and wake you guys up!

Oh my, that flat Brutus looks tired after his trip. I'm sure he'll have fun staying with you guys. Just let him rest up first.

Phew! Good thing you could revive him - we're loosing Flat Brutus like crazy lately (one eaten, another stolen). Very creative resuscitation attempt there Tanner... At least you didn't sit on him though BOL! Oh, and to date Flat Brutus has no team loyalty, but something tells me he'll be coming home a Yankees fan!
