deep thoughts, by joe stains

New years is a time to look back and a time to look forward and set some goals.

cold rainy day wear

Last year, I guess I could have been nicer to Tanner. I guess I could have been more of a big brother and less of a big jerk. So this year I swear I will work on this. However, that means he needs to resolve to be less of a pain in the butt!

Other things that I am determined to improve upon in 2007:

1. I WILL figure out what is living under our shed.
2. I will try to not wake up at 5am and cry at the door to be let out to take a crap because I know this makes dad mad.
3. My bird catching skills. I have been soooo close sooo many times.
4. Convincing Mom and Dad that baths are just for Tanner, not for me.
5. Try not to cry when I turn 8 and become officially considered geriatric. *sigh*

And also, speaking of my birthday. Let me tell you how horrible my life is. My Dad, who has had me since I was 8 weeks old does NOT KNOW what my birthday is. My mom, who did not know me until I was 1 year old, can remember seeing my puppy papers and says my birthday is March 6th. Dad says March 9th. (mom would like to point out she is probably right and since she is typing we will humor her) So, why don't we just look on the puppy papers? WELL because they are at my grandparen't house in a box SOMEWHERE. This is vital information and they BETTER find it soon because I want to get lots of birthday love! If they don't I am officially declaring it to be March 6th.

I just got to the end of this and realized that Boy and Baby tagged me. How funny I did 5! I don't know who out there is left to tag! The game is to list down 5 New Year Resolutions and then to tag 5 more friends.

Here is a great video of the doofus 'burying' his bone in his house.

I will tag my human friend Noah

I'm going to be one year old March 27th. That officially makes me much younger than you. Ah, the joys of youth.

I say you look like obe wan kenobe in that picture. the force be with you!

8 is young! You need to celebrate both days, that way neither of the rents has to admit they are wrong. That way you get credit for being so nice, and you get more stuff!

Hi Joey,
If they still can't find the papers, I suggest you take BOTH 6 and 9 March as your barkday.. Then you get double the dosage of lovin'.. I'm sure Tanner won't get this!!

everyone else is just plain wrong ... have TWO birthdays!! One on the 6th and one on the 9th! Then both humans can be right!

Hey Joey,

I also think you should consider making the 6th AND the 9th your birthday. That means TWO cakes and DOUBLE the pressies!!!

I am in awe of your 5 am wake up call, I generally let my lady sleep in till 6 am, even on the weekends. Don't they realize how lucky they are to have us to ensure they get up in time for their days> But my lady doesn't seem to appreciate it, wonder why?!
