foxy lady!

Mom is posting this in our absense because right now we are at a party in SPACE, OUTERSPACE, I think that is near maine but I am not sure of the details. Ben Benjamin picked us up in his space ship earlier...

We dressed warm and have a flashlight, so don't worry about us!

I was pretty ticked off yesterday and contemplated staying in bed for the whole weekend when Mom said I had a package! On the back of the package was a very special note...

Well, someone certainly is smart...who could this be from...

There was a very special looking note inside, I had to have Mom help me hold it so I could read...

Omdooog its from the BEAUTIFUL and talented Ms. Sophie la Brador! I had to get a nice big sniff of that letter, but thankfully the pupperazzi missed that photo.

She sent me the most fabulous Orbee toy...

It is green and minty and is a thousand times better than some stupid green squirrel!

It smells minty fresh, just like I'd imagine Sophie's breath to be. Or like roses, I am not sure...maybe her other end smells of roses??

Lets give this thing a whirl!!

OMDOG I LOOVE IT, I even got the wild eye from it!!

and the REALLY REALLY wild eye, omdog I almost look like the Doofus here. goshdarn pupperazzi.

While this toy is fantabulous and wonderful, it was not the only thing in the package...oh no, Ms Brador knows that the way to a terrier's heart is through his belly, so she sent ME cookies?!

I asked mom for 8 cookies, since I am 8 years old.

Um please, I am also the best, if you need reminded??

the Doof lined up for a handout too and I told him, No WAY uh uh, not a chance! These cookies are FOR ME and Sophie said I do not have to share. NO SHARING REQUIRED!

Well that sure wiped the smile off his face!

Then mom pulled out the big guns, she dropped a very important name...Santa Paws. CRAP, I guess the Doofus can have ONE cookie.

THANK YOU SOPHIE! or um MERCY BUCKETS or whatever those french words are for thank you so much you are so pretty and beautiful. um. I gotta go...

this is who I am, if you don't like it sorry!

First of all Tanner is MAD at me, wow. I referred to Princess Sparkle as his girlfriend and now his wife is TICKED OFF. Looks like I got him in the dog house. Lillie, I am sorry, Princess Sparkle is not Tanner's girlfriend, she is simply a friend of his who happens to be a lady. I don't think Sparkle is old enough to date anyway!

Next I need to address some things that are on my mind. Mom has been telling me to stop being so grumpy all of the time. I had to remind her that for almost 2 years the little description on my blog has read "This is the blog of an angry old boston terrier." Look for yourself in the upper left corner. Why she continues to be upset by my anger baffles me. It is just the way I am! I have probably touched on this subject a few times, but here has what has angered me lately.

1. I AM ITCHY!! As soon as it starts to cool off here my skin goes crazy and I get itchy like no dog has been itchy before. I roll, I turn, I roach, I rub and nothing works. Finally after like 3 months of my suffering (Note from Mom, ONE DAY) Mom decides to start giving me more fish oil and some tuna to help my dry skin. This is a classic case of neglect.

2. I AM COLD!!!!!!

No room for people in our bed
Do you notice something about this photo? (besides the fact that Tanner practically has his head up my butt) I don't have hair on my stomach or my back legs. This was 2 years ago, its got worse since then. It just happens as us bostons get older and it sucks. As soon as it gets into the 50s at night I can't take it anymore.


If you cannot view the video it basically depicts my horrifying, heart breaking cries as Tanner chews the coveted Green Squirrel. I want that squirrel. :(

4. TANNER!!!!!!

Look what that little jerk did to the living room. Mom insists I knocked the pillows down since I do it EVERY DAY, but how hard is that to pick up?! A LOT easier than 300 toys!


Look at that Doofus riding up front right next to Dad while I am confined to the back seat of the car. He was MY DAD FIRST!

I know I have a lot to be thankful for and I appreciate all my DWB friends and my warm home and all that good stuff. But sometimes, I JUST HAVE TO BE MAD!!!!!!

BUSTED again by the pupperazzi...

Some of you may remember Tanner's 'lady friend' Liberty aka Princess Sparkle. Well, she has her own website now and she keeps a blog of her travels. You can check her out here.

In her most recent adventure she totally ratted me out to Mom and Dad by letting them know that when they are not around I am hanging out at Flaming Moe's! I tell you what, even Tanner's girlfriends manage to mess me up!! I swear everyday it feels like I am being watched all the time!!! I have to find out if there is a back door, I can't be seen hanging out in line again...

Get that camera out of my FACE!

I am telling you guys, I am beginning to feel some sympathy for Paris Hilton and Justin Timberlake. I can't do anything without someone taking photos and posting it for the world to see. Last night I was very upset about the football game and there is Tanner running all around taunting me and saying OMDOG BUDS OMDOG JOES OMDOG OMDOG! Meanwhile he is planning to show EVERYONE how much I get into my football watching!? What a brat. Then he tells everyone that I am always cold, implying that I am an old man and can't handle the chilly then...THIS HAPPENS...

I am going to steal a line from the Doofus here and say WTF is this ?!?! Mom bought me PAJAMAS!?!?!!

Seriously, PAJAMAS?! I know that some of you dogs have some PJs from Butchy and Snicker's Mom and they are really nice but I am JOE STAINS...

Hey Doofus, I might be looking like a cute little pup here but I can still kick your BUTT!!!

Ok, I have to admit that these things are pretty warm, I wonder how they feel in the bed??

Hmmm...this is not so bad...but I can't ruin my reputation!! Why couldn't Mom get me tough looking PJs with skulls or um spikes or something!!

This photo cannot be used to prove I am in the bed with these warm comfy PJs because you cannot tell that it is me, it is probably Tanner. right.

Tanner Too much drama in the football games DAY!

OMDOG on the football on a Monday night was the Steelers and there was SO MUCH raining you could barely even believe it!!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Look at that they were splashing all OVER the place, it was the wetterest game EVER!

We were watching and I was cheering and Joey was getting WAY mad!!

Joey is colderest cuz its like NOT hot here anymore so he has a sweatingshirt on!

the game was like no points and back and forth and NO scorings from anyone!

Joe fell down and was like OMDOG I CAN'T TAKE IT!!!!!!!

Then he fell down again and was like, MY STEELERS CAN'T SCORE?! oooh!??!!!

Finally he said I CANT even watch it is so sadderest.

BUT DO NOT WORRY the Steelers DID win! They winned by 3 points but that is ok because they WIN and that is all that matters!!!!!!!!!

Christmas Card attempts

Mom tried to get some pictures for our Christmas card. We didn't really feel like participating...

I am trying to see if Doofus is sucking up and posing nicely...

How about winking, is that acceptable?? (Mom said she thought I was winking at Sophie, but I am keeping my mouth shut!!)

Argh, I have other things to be doing right now!!!!

Even the Doofus participated in the picture ruining, he learned something for once! (I am still afraid of that creepy wandering eye of his!!)

Don't worry, Mom got a good one so we will be shipping out our cards very soon!!!

Tomorrow...Monday night football has MY Steelers playing the PITIFUL Dolphins. If the Steelers lose I am not getting out of bed until next weekend!

Thanksgiving was great!

We had a super great Thankgiving and I have a lot of photos to share!

I met my cousin Jameson, boy is she CUTE. I was very good and very calm and she smiled REALLY big when she saw me. That girl definitely recognizes handsome when she sees it! I was very curious about her and Tanner was totally oblivious!

I kept going up to the table where she was and trying to kiss her, I just LOVED her!

Dad let me sit on his lap so we could hang out, she has some cool toys on her seat thing but we were not allowed to chew on them.

Even when I was far away, I kept an eye on her! This is me sitting with my uncle who is a Packers fan, but he is pretty awesome besides his football taste.

My grandpa is a Packers fan too, he is also pawesome because he didn't yell at me when I did this and he shared his green beans with me. Gram hooked us up with some Turkey when Mom wasn't looking. Grandparents RULE!

We had TONS of fun and got lots of food. We sure are lucky!!

Thanksgiving is a special time!

We know all the dogs out there in the DWB world don't celebrate our American Thanksgiving but it is still a great day to stop and think of some things you are thankful for.

We are thankful for our nice warm homes and beds.

We are thankful for our DWB friends, family, FOOD, and mostly that we are really so lucky and so spoiled when there are so many doggies out there that do not have anything. We hope everyone has a GREAT Thanksgiving with their families.

Since that post was pretty deep and pretty sad I thought I would leave you with my choice for our Christmas card? Mom says NO but I think it captures the true suffering I endure at the mouth of the Doofus and would lift the spirits of EVERY doggy that does not have to live with their very own DOOFUS FACE!

gimme the hat!

OK dudes so last week I drinked that Beer then the world was spinning and I thought I was going to barf then I went to sleep for like a while. DONT drink a lot ok guys?!

So then like something REALLY cool can see it ok?

I got one new LITTLE HOUSE and this one is not all closed on the sides and back so I can see out of it on all around! SO I like this house better. AND I totally barfed all through my OTHER little house! Cool huh!?

This one I go into just to take some sleepynaps, which I would NOT do in the other bad stinky terriblerest awful house. It is the nicerest house I have had so far and I am happy!

Another GOOD good thing is that Mom and Dad gave that stupid bad little house that I HATED the mosterest to the nice peoples at the Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue so they can have a house for a sad Boston who has no house at all. That house SUCKS but it is a lot better than no house at all. Those people do nice things for Bostons, so I love them. Oh and Mom cleaned the barf out before we gived it away, I promise.

GUYS so whatsssuuupppp with this turkey day thing coming?! Are you guys excitered as I am? Joey remembered to me that I went last year but I think I forgetted already but I hear there is a LOT of food!

I am going to go make sure my teeth are nice and ready for it!!!

Award Award Award!!!

We got an Award from both Agatha and Archie and Butchy and Snickers! Thank you guys SO SO MUCH!!!

This award is presented to a successful blogger, one who can “be the blog” - making it their own, staying with it, interacting with the readers, and just plain having fun.


We also got an award from Lorenza!

"This award 'The Community Blog Award' is to recognise bloggers that celebrates those who reach out and make the blogger community a better one. It also underlines the importance of a blog's readership community, one of the most rewarding parts about blogging. It's those who come back to comment, adding to the conversation, making you feel like someone is listening and interested".


THANK YOU LORENZA! We are so honored and want to award ALL the other DWB members because we love each and every one of you!

Mom got us some vests...but I bet you can't see us?!

Can you??

Can you see me NOW?!

I can't wait to use these on our next mission with the Army of Four!!!!

Thanks again for the awards guys, we greatly appreciate every dog that comes to visit our page, and the humans too. We really love doing this blog and reading about all of our friends. Thanks to everyone who takes the time to comment, it makes us feel so good inside that you guys take the time out of your day just to even say hi!

Sunday tour and fun stuff!

We forgot to mention in our last post that we had fun at the poker night. But what happens at poker night, stays at poker night. ya know what I'm sayin?

The Army of Four shows us about where they live and a lot of other dogs share pictures of their town, so I thought I would share a couple of pictures.

This is my street, its a dead end so there is not a lot of traffic, the building in the back is a middle school where LOTS of kids go and I like to talk to them out our front window!

This is the street that runs right by our house, its busy so we get a lot of people walking and driving by all day for me to talk at.

This building is further up that same street and that is where Mom and Dad go everyday to do that work junk. Mom and Dad work for the same company and its so close that they get to come home on lunch to see us everyday.

I used to live in that apartment complex before we moved to our house. I must have stained there about a thousand times!!

We also live about a mile north of the ASU campus, which means when they play their dumb football games we hear the fireworks and it makes me VERY mad!

We have a lot of parks in AZ that have pretend lakes in them. Someone just dug that big hole and then filled it up with water and fish.

In other exciting news, Tanner got a new little house and he doesn't seem to hate it as much as his old one, so that is good!

Mom and Dad thought they were real funny putting me in it, I was not amused.

I hope you all have a good weekend. I am watching the Steelers and it is tied in the 4th quarter and I can't stand the stress!!!
