GUYS we totally found that JOEY!!

Petey sent this SUPER pawesome card showing ME as TANZAR!!! omdog I am loving this image LOLOL.

Ok but seriously, Joe was such an a$$hole for just totally hanging out eating BURGERS and watching Steelers while we were risking our LIVES to save him. And he ALMOST ruined my birthday. AND Sophie was mad at him for leaving, he has LOTS of splainin to do!!

Well Mom was being a threatener about my pressies so I FLEW home just to open it!!

THERE IT IS!! Its from BabyStan, Scruffy and the LacieBeast!!!!

LOOK at those COOL pressies!!??!? Its a small corn shank, and a STEELERS HAT and some jerky treats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

omdog but the hat is for JOE, thats ok, he is the biggerest steelers fan EVER!

OMDOG look at that card?!?! That does NOT look like me on the front of that card, that dog is fatterest and the Lacie Beast is NOT getting a date with me!! NO WAY! she can have all those crocodillys! THANK YOU GUYS FOR THE GREAT PRESSIES!!!!!

Tanner, it's always worth flying half way around the world for PRESENTS! Even if you have to share them with that ol' spoilsport Joey - we can't wait to see that hat on him, by the way.

We're packing up the tent and getting ready to fly home. What a trip, huh? Are you still wearing your loin cloth? Tell Lilly she can play the part of Jane!

Your pal,

Happy Birthday Doo ... Tanner! Since you are the brother of my #1 that makes you, well, not #2, but more like 1 removed? Wait, does that work? I don't have a clue what it means, but it should mean that you have a really great birthday and give that Joey and big smoocher from me.


P.S. My brother is who maybe Joey's #2 (i don't know) says you and him need to caucus. I have no idea what that means, but it doesn't sound good.

You're just a few days younger than I am -- but you've done so much with your life that I'm a bit envious.

May I come sit at your paws and learn your secrets?

Wirey woofs of congratulation!!!

Happy Fifth Birthday, Tanner! We're glad you made it back in time to celebrate. We've just got one suggestion: do not, I repeat DO NOT bite off the end of the corn shank and swallow it. It'll sit in your gut for days, and if you're lucky, you'll puke it back up about a week later. That's NOT the way to celebrate the last week of your fifth birthday.

Just suggestin',
Jake (and Fergi)
We love ya, pal.
