WHATSSSSSSUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPPPP!! Tan Torkelson reporting after another FUN weekend in that Show Low cabin!

We did LOTS of walking around and leaving pee mails!!

I also had to do BIG GROWLERS to tell those neighbor dogs I was in town and this was MY MOUNTAIN!

Can you see me? I am SO tough!!

But our MAIN GOAL was PRY MER and PAINT. I told Dad to GET TO WORK!!!

I was supervising the WHOLE time. Mom said I had to wear that shirt in case I decided to get some paint on me. She must think I am a Doofus or something.

Of course while I was being the best supervisor I made sure my HIDDEN CAMERA was up and running...

What is that Blanket doing in that kitchen???

It is not a blanket, it is crabby JOEY. He was SO MAD that it was cold and we were moving around all those chairs that should be in the dining room.

Here is secret camera footage of the crabbiest dog in the whole wide world...

DID YOU SEE HIM!?!? LOL carrying that stupid blanket around then he'd curl up under it all over the downstairs.

He is such a DORK, I mean, he doesn't have a cool jacket like ME!? I am here letting Mom and Gramps have a painting break but then I told her BACK TO WORK LADY.

Then I snuck off for a nap, LOL. Being the boss is good!!

Well, we think that Joe is pretty darn cute with his blankie. And smart too...I mean - that way it is always there when you need it, right?

We shudder to think about you supervising a crew of home decorators, but since your Mom was around, we figure it came out OK

I think you found your calling Tan. You're a great supervisor. Those humans were working their tails off. Cool how Joe has his own portable sleeping bag---

Hey! I would do the same thing. The only option when things are being moved around is to keep your blanket close by so that you know where it is.

I was unmoved by your tough guy act on walkies. Such a fuss.

So much work on that house! I bet everybody is worn out.

Joey is pretty smart to keep his blanket close by - no need to look for it when you need it. Probably kept paint off of it too. Do you get a raise in allowence for being the supervisor?

Joey is lucky that he is able to take that blanket with him. We were able to tell that you had scared off every evil think from that mountain.

It's so unusual to see you two outside in the wilds! Mommy thought Joey looked like Yoda wearing his blanket like a robe throughout the house.

Good job defending your mountain, no doubt those dogs - no...WOLVES! -skedaddled when they heard your fierce growls!

your pal,
