we are feeling better

We are feeling a little bit better around here, thanks to my fine detective skills. First of all, I keep getting tagged to show my belly, I DO NOT sleep on my back. Ever. At all. I cannot leave myself vulnerable like that. If you want to see Tanner's (fat) belly just scroll down a couple of entries.

Another order of business. I would love to read the blogs of everyone that reads mine, so if you have not got comments from me and you have a blog...please comment so mom can add you to my bloglines and we can keep up with your life!

Ok, now that we are done with that lets move on. I had decided that I need to cheer up the Doof, so I recalled that when Mom went to the feed store the other day I distinctly smelled bully sticks on her when she came home. I think I need to get out the detective coat and have a look around.

I looked around Mom's cook books, because that would be a smart place to put them. Maybe she is planning to make us some kind of bully casserole? But no luck...

While I am detecting...YEP, still smells like Tanner puke! GROSS!

This is where Mom keeps all our other treats, but I do not smell any bully sticks in here!!

I went to see what was keeping the Doof out of my hair for more than a minute and I found him in his little house.

He was eating that corn he loves when I noticed seems as though Tanner is forging some sort of weapon out of the corn...

OMG he is making a corn shank! He must have learned that in the pound! I sure hope he doesn't plan to stab me with it?! Maybe he is a lot smarter than I give him credit for?!

I better find these bully sticks before he gets more sad or mad!

Can you find the bullysticks!!!! I dunno why Mom put them in there, probably so I wouldnt be able to smell them. That clever woman! (wally you see our wasabi in the drawer?)

So lets see if this made the doofus happy?

I think his eyes are going to pop out of his head!!

He is ecstatic.

Lets see how this bully stick is?

Always start with a tentative bite to be sure it is ok for your discerning palate...



Since Boo reminded us, we wanted to edit to say that our Bully Sticks are not made by the guys who had to recall a buncha junk. those jerks.

Oh my gosh Joey, you better watch your back! Tanner could take the corn shank and stab you with it, then break off the cob leaving that little pointy end bit in your back!

Don't turn your back in the shower and for goodness sakes, don't bend down to pick up the soap!

Joey: Teka is disappointed that she has been replaced by a bully stick, but I don't blame you guys one little bit. Great detecting!

YAY for Detective Stains! My favourite! But watch out for that corn shank -- even detectives still have to face danger!

Hey Joey,
You are a very detailed detective! was nice of you to look for that bully stick for Tanner. Man, why does Tanner still need to get into the crate when it's like almost torn down by him?
PS : Your fridge looks very well stocked. My Mom loves Japanese food and we have some Japanese stuff in ours too. Some farnie sweet Tofu skin to make with Sushi rice. Mom says she gonna make sushi one of these days. :)

Excellent detective skills Sherlock Joe! A corn shank? Maybe you'd better be a little nicer to the Doof.

Your folks have the most bottles of hot sauce in their fridge we've ever seen!!! My Dad likes that stuff, but not as much as yours!

Be careful, be very, very careful.

AAAH! You weren't kidding about that corn!!! Not only is he a Doofus, he is a maniacal corn-shank producing madman! Your parents are still keeping him?! *shaking head* Corn should not be used for evil purposes.

Those bully sticks sure look yummy.
It's good to see that Tanner is doing better now. We were starting to get worried about him.

Those bully sticks sure look good! We all got them once. ONCE! The human woman said it only took me 3 minutes to eat it, so it was a waste of money. She has a hard time finding anything for me to chew on that lasts more than 5-10 minutes.

Those corn things are quite interesting? What are they (other than possible weapons!)?

Don't let the Doofus watch re-runs of Oz on HBO!!!

Mmmmm. Bullies. I'm going to go remind the ma ape we haven't had any in awhile. I think they make me more manly.

I'd be nicer to Tanner if I were you, Joey! Maybe he's trying to be our weapons specialist in the Ao4 Troopers?
Why did your mom put your sticks in the magic cold box? Did she spread them with cheese or something?
Play bows,
PS: Do you have a friend named Stella at this address: She said she wants to be in the Ao4 and that she's a friend of yours but we can't find her anywhere? What say you, Detective Stains?

What a great detective you must be the terrier thing...but omg
that shiv looks positively lethal..and he looks so innocent..just goes to show you..can't go by looks alone..the bully stick looks yummy, I've never had one..but don't let it distract you so much that you let down your guard against Doofus. kisses from
your fellow detective, Asta

Hola Joey! I have to learn something from you. Your detective skills are pretty good. I never know where my treats are. Be careful of Tanner, maybe he is not so Doofus.
Have a nice day!
