Swine Flu!?!?

Everyday Mom and Dad come home for lunch so that they can make it through their days without crying. I cannot imagine how they might make it through NINE hours without seeing us if they were unable to do that. Anyway, when they are home they often watch the news.

As you can see, Tanner and I also watch the news. Really. We got distracted for like a minute here by Dad's chips... (I swear my Dad wears shirts to work, he just says it is way too hot when he comes home for lunch. TRY HAVING FUR BUDDY!)

Lunch with the dogs
But usually, we are right there keeping up on current events. We had heard about this swine flu and Sophie asked me how Cowboy Pig was?? OMDOG?? I hadn't even THOUGHT about that. He lives in the pantry with my Canadian Moose, my squirrel and my Mom's bear she has had since she was 6, which is like 345890 years ago. Otherwise Tanner would kill them all. So I ran to the pantry...

So far, Cowboy pig has seen no negative effects from Swine Flu
Well Cowboy Pig looks ok...

So far, Cowboy pig has seen no negative effects from Swine Flu
OMDOG is this what goes on in here?? They are playing poker, eating chips and drinking booze???!?! I should certainly say he is safe from Swine Flu but I am not sure how his stomach is going to feel later!!

I want to know if that pig speaks chipmunk. I've tried, and they usually scream and run away. Maybe it's because I'm telling them that I'd like to eat their livers, or maybe I just have it all wrong. Let me know if he can help!

I LOVE CHIPS! They are so crunchy. Sometimes when the Dad is getting lunch ready, we walk him over to the pantry and stare at the door until he opens it and takes out the CHIPS! Glad your pig is okay. Akira would kill it too. I like to PLAY with the stuffies!

Cowboy Pig was partying without you?! Not fair! You need to forget the news and keep your eye on the pantry, man.

That was such a funny post!! Your Dad is very colourful - we like his tatoos. Martha growls at men with shirts and ties so it is OK he has taken his shirt off. Martha is much more relaxed with that.
We are so relieved that Cowboy Pig is free of symptoms.

Cowboy Pig looks just fine to us. If he spends his day in the closet eating chips and drinking booze he probably isn't exposed to the virus.

Hmm. I wonder if Cowboy Pig would share his Fritoes with me. I'm really good at poke=her, too. I always run up behind Mom and poke her good! Ha roo roo roo!
Hey... do your bipeds say your feet smell like Fritoes?

P.S. I think Tanner would make an excellent hype man, he's kind of a nutjob, just like Flav.

Is there room in the cabinet for me? They look like some wicked party animals. Glad Cowboy Pig is safe.

Your parents come home for lunch? You lucky little guys. Oh yeah, momma says your dad doesn't need a shirt because he has such pretty paintings on hisself. Why cover them up?
