Happy Sunday!!

How is everyone's weekend going so far? Ours has been pretty great!

I got a new collar. Mom said its very whimsical for a dog as serious as I am, but I like it. I think it will show the voters that I have a softer side.

Its got dogs of all shapes and colors!

And it makes me look VERY handsome!

On top of getting a new collar we finally benefited from all the cooking Mom does for her food blog. She made an entire chicken and before she cooked it she reached in and pulled all of this GOODNESS out of it!

She totally threw away the neck because she wasn't sure if it was safe for us. I KNOW some of you dogs get them but Mom said she wasn't chancing it. argh!

Mom cooked them up for us but even that was for HER.

mmmm giblet juice
She used all that yummy stuff in the bottom to add flavor to a sauce she made in that pan. BUT I am not complaining because this was our dinner...

Mine is the one without the carrots. I have decided I no longer like them, but the Doofus still gets them to keep his butt from breaking. There is one piece of heart in there for each of us and some yogurt and our supplement.

Talk about a nice dinner, THANKS MOM!

After dinner we took a nice nap

Mom even had the fire on. What a great day.

Oh nice collar. We like it. The neck would have been fine as long as it was raw. That is a nice looking dinner. Napping is good.

I get raw turkey neck and chicken back all the time. The key is raw. Once bones are cooked they can shatter and cut us up on the inside. Mmmmm. I'm off to beg for my meaty bone (chicken back today!)

JOey, YOu are very handsome in your new collar. Mom says that a turkey neck would probably be too much for you guys. I get them all the time, but when we had my sister, who was only 50 lbs., she couldn't poop out a turkey neck, so she got chicken necks instead. That might be more your speed too.

Mom wants to know what kind of kibble you eat, that you can mix withe yogurt and stuff. She thinks it would be nice to give yogurt too, since I like it lots, but she always thought she couldn't give it to me with kibble. Why? Who knows.

Hey Joe,

Chicken and turkey necks are good for you and your teeth! We eat raw food often. You just don't want to eat those bones after they have been cooked, that is when they are dangerous.

Your photos are making me hungry!

Your collar is quite fitting for a dog of your stature.

Love your collar and we love the pictures of your dinner! OMG the pictures are so crystal clear we can almost taste it!
Hey Joey, everytime mom tries to view your mom's blog, she gets thrown offline! This is making mom mental! Does this happen to anyone else that you know of?

Love ya lots,

We love the new collar Joe. Makes you look very vice presidental!
Dinner looked pretty good-but she was kinda skimpy with the chicken innards! Maybe she's gonna do something creative with the rest of it for you tomorrow, a pate or something like that...
Thanks for the advice on the backwards sneeze. Mom has done both the cover the nose and the tongue depression moves. The tonge depression is the fastest. I try not to bite down too hard but sometimes I just can't help myself. But boy it sure does bring quick relief!
Have a good one guyz,

The term "butt breaking" causes our Silly Senile Servant to convulse in laughter every time.
We have a funny raw story in our book, maybe we should post it in the bloggy.
And we were glad to see the extreme close up extends to doggy dinners, too.

I think a fire would be nice tonight, maybe I'll hint

Hi, Joe!
You llok great with your new collar. Yes, I was sure you have a soft side!
Your food looks delicious. Is there any chance you could talk with my mom about giving me more than dry kibbles??
Have a good and warm night

You look very handsome in your new collar. We thought the chicken organs looked delicious - we could have drooled over them all day, but our girl made us scroll the screen - something about barfing if she had too look at them. Your mom is so much cooler than our girl.

Oh come on, we don't need a collar to prove how handsome you are! My Mom loves chicken LIVER and HEART. I never had time but I have certainly seen her eating them. tsk tsk..

Your collar is very beautiful, you look so distinguished in the photos, almost Churchillian!

Your food looks good, I have begun eating broccoli, not very keen on it unless it is mashed up in my kibble and I cannot see it!!

Our chickens here in the UK don't come with any innards, so I get nothing like that at all.

We have weird Chickens, running around the place with no bizarre is that!????

Hi Joe!
Your new collar is great and it really does bring out your handsomeness. Did you like your piece of heart? I don't think I will ever get to try any... My mom almost threw up yesterday when she saw a cow heart in the meat section of the grocery store.
Love Clover xo

OMdoG!!! She threw away the neck??? What was she thinking?! The neck is the safest of ALL bones including pork bones...We eat boiled chicken neck everyday for breakfast. It tastes sooooo good! She should have wasted throwing it away. She should have mailed it to my home. Just hope it doesn't rot by the time it reaches here. I wouldn't mind rotten neck actually but I would get some serious stomach ache, hehehe! The meatables looks soooo good. I can smell them through this comp screen...You collar is really nice!

Love licks,

Whoa--that collar is totally studly on you. Nice. And that dinner looks AWESOME. I'm not allowed to have chicken necks because I swallow them WHOLE and then barf them up later. I don't see what the problem is--two meals in one! I do love the carrots. Maybe that's why my butt doesn't break like my sissy who MUST be a Doofus.

Yummmmmm, those guts look delicious! Mom doesn't give us chicken necks b/c she's afraid we'll choke on them. But turkey necks are another story....get in my belly!

Your collar is great! I think black dogs look very handsome in blue.

Whoa, Joe.

Your mama did you right over the weekend. LOVE the new collar (and the softer side of Joe Stains), and LOVE the food photos. I'll have to go check out your mama's blog. I thought it was another hooman blah blah blah blog, but if it's about FOOD, well, that's a different story.

Goober love,
