Tan the grounded dog...

I AM GROUNDED?!?!? Can you guys EVEN believe it???

Scooter and I decided to try to make some of that good BBQ food ourselves and we remember watching all those peoples pouring on that lighting fluid and then having nice BBQ fires. We didn't know that you did not need the ENTIRE bottle and maybe some gasoline and maybe some kerosene just to make it start!

SO we called that Fire Department and they came but then I was like OMDOG you guys have to POSE for a picture first for my BLOG OK!?

SO while we did that, a garage sorta BURNED. WOOPS!!!!! So now I am grounded. I had to take Scooter home and now I am stuck here...

So since I was home I had to find something FUN to do...and here it is...

Did you see me go BOING BOING BOING!!!!!!?!?!?

Don't worry, when Dad was done he gave me that bottle!

So I got one GREAT Package in the mail today and I will get to post about that tomorrow!!

It took you forever to knock that dumb table over. Come on! You need to practice that whole boing boing thing more.

I love those water bottles because they make great sounds when you crunch on them.

Wooof- Glad you and Scooter are OK, that was some fire you had going. Did you get to eat any of the BBQ, or did you give it all to the firepeople.

Hee hee, I like how calm your Dad is while you're jumping like a bean all around the table, trying to get the water bottle! (We have those same tray tables!)

Hey guess what, Joey? Miss Sophie Brador is here in New York, just a few blocks away and I haven't met her yet!?! Maybe today - I'll keep you posted. Nothing to worry about, I'm a married man after all.

Your pal,

Nice work with the room decor, dudes. I'm enjoying that flipped toy bin and all the good scattered about. I bet your folks are pumped about it!!!

Or maybe it was the earthquake? Hurricane Tan-Man?

I'm going to tell you a secret because you're a grumpy old man like me and I know you won't spill the beans. I knew we had to get rid of the Waylon Rat Boy because even though we got him every kind of toy--cuz, squeakies, chewies--his favorite thing was water bottles. I knew we had a little Doofus on our paws and we had to nip the problem in the butt. I mean bud.

Hey Tan Tork, You are never not in trouble, are you? I mean all the time, ever day, week, month, year. Don't you ever get tired of making trouble?

Well, now we know that only the garage burned down. But we have to say, your "grounding" doesn't look too serious. That looked like a lot of fun to me! BTW, since you seem to prefer bottles to rope toys, if you ever decided to reduce your supply of brand new looking booda bones, I know where you can send them. Mine look like shredded dental floss!
