bad news from the house of a thousand stains

This morning started out SUPER because my Dad came home early from work, like at 9am! I was soooo excited. So then, he puts Tanner in his harness and takes him away!! Like in the truck!!! I was so excited I was banging into the window shutters making all kinds of funny noises. Plus, Tanner has been really stinky lately so I was extra glad to be rid of him!!

Well, just about an hour later Dad comes back, I am stoked, thinking party time with Dad! BUT he has Tanner with him. And Tanner looks SAD. and Dad looks SAD. So I sniff Tanner out and pee-yuck he still stinks, but he smells like something else too, THE VET!

Dad said Tanner has an infected BUTT gland?!!?!! GROSS!!!! So they had to squeeze some stinky goo out of his butt and he has pills he has to take now! The best part is, the Vet said that we should get more fiber in our diets so that our poop is bigger! How cool is that vet! So mom is going to pick up some fruits and veggies for us to snack on.

Finally the doofus did something good for me! More yummy treats! Too bad he still STINKS!

Oh, poor Doofus! That butt thing does not sound fun at all!! Hopefully the extra fiber and extra large poops will help him out.

My big sister Abby (God rest her soul) had to have her glands "expressed". Not serious as long as it's taken care of. I'm sure Tanner will be fine. Such good parents you have.

Hi there Joe! Have found your blog at long last!

I have had infected Butt is disgusting! I am so sorry for Tammer. send him my sympathy. The squeezing of the butt by the Vet is a horrible experience. Jeannie was told to sprinkle bran on my biscuits to help with the butt probs! She buys it in the health food shop.

Take care, I have followed the great Joe Stains tradition, and made three rather spectacular stains on the living room carpet today!! Jeannie was shampooing the carpet at 7 am this morning......

Hoooooomans eh! I wil put a link on my blog later on today when internet is quieter, to your Blog so I can take a look at your fun life!
