Tanner TUESDAY !!

GUYS today is ONE year that my Mom and Dad have been married. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to those two humans who feed me!!!

so as you know, we were in that SHOW LOW place. What a DUMB name for a town, but whatever right.

Well on the one night they decided to go over to the NEIGHBORS house to eat some foods and watch some tvs.

Look at that, they even have a TV outside. But guess what?? WE DID NOT GET TO GO. They left us at home in the house.

They hung out with that dog named Oso and not with the dogs named Joey and Tanner.

BUT guess what?!?!? They did not bring my Little House so I was FREE to do what I wanted!!

I totally did some of that DECORATING stuff like you see on that HGTV.

I thought the plastic fruitables looked better on the floor. I also ate a whole pack of kleenex, spilled Mom's bag of ear plugs on the floor AND pulled some bags down in the dining room!! WOO it was FUN!!!! Mom said OH NO and came home and then they did not go back to party without us because they said Tanner is a BAD DOG. Whatever, at least I was not home by myself with Joey the old and crabby dog.


OK so that was MY part of the trip I wanted to talk about!! THAT is all from Tan Torkelson!

Tanner! Do you know that Show Low has something to do with a poker game? That is the story I remember. I thought you and Scooter knew that.

You'd best learn to behave, or your gramma will not invite you back

Congrats to the parents. We are hoping you are able to poop out all that kleenex. Dawson is always eating the big red guys ear plugs. The big red guy is so DUMB. He keeps leaving them around where Dawson can get them.

When you aren't invited to the party you have to make due with what you have. I think those fruitables might have been the Pot Pour Me or something. We have that at our house to hide the Mango cologne smell.

Tanner, too bad your pawrents didn't let you take your chances with Oso. You might have got along OK, and then you wouldn't have trashed your grandparents home that you were invited to as a Guest.

Get serious, Tanner.

Tanner, I don;t know why you don't have your own show, but you really should refrain from calling Joey old and boring. I might have to come down there and beat you up if you keep doing that.

Good for you for doing some house work for them.

Happy Aniiversary to your pawrents Joey and Tanner!! Hope they have more annversaries ahead!

Your decorating style is not bad actually.. you and Hershey can team up and start a interior design firm.. you can decorate and she can 'modify' furniture by chewing them.. Joey and I will be the ummm.. brains behind the business. What do you think?
