Let me tell you a story...

We thank you all that went to see Sophie's Mom, today is her birthday, so talk about bad timing with poor Graham.

I tried to get comfy on the side of the couch to do some thinking and good vibe sending.

But every time I went to stand on the end table like I usually do, Mom's stupid Christmas crap got in my way. She has like 3 Christmas cards (compared to my millions) and then she has these little village house things. I had to explain my complete dissatisfaction with this arrangement. Tanner just looked confused, as usual.

Mom said she would not move the decorations and I would just have to deal with it. She is lucky I am being nice for this Santa Paws dude. Another reason is because this is what she and Dad had for dinner tonight...

OMDOG. It is this place called Five Guys and they just opened one by our house in Tempe. I cannot believe they did not take me!!! Oh well, I guess I will just have to get over it until the fat man brings me all my presents.

Joey, why don't you just EAT The decorations? or just chew 'em up a bit so they can't be there anymore?

We just found out all about this 5 Guys stuff. We dont have that here....typical. Sometimes I wonder about being down the butt end of the world.
I hear you got some fries.

You see? This is why those decoration things are so dumb. They interfere with our normal routine. You seem quite frustrated for sure. Tanner, well, he is what he is.

Bless you! You had a little allergic reaction to those decorations? (Our servant is excited to see you are still sporting the Stellers collar!)

Joey and Tanner: We loved the video, and are really excitered about Five Guys, cause our dad is going to be in Azrizona next month and we can send him there to bring home takeout

Mom thinks you are being "totally sweet and wonderful" for not knocking the Christmas stuff down. If that were me, all that stuff would have been on the floor in like 2 minutes!

And is it 5 Guys Pizza?? Cause mom and dad ate there all the time when they were in Baltimore...

Oooooh....Joe...I think you were saying some very very bad words! I know your mom doesn't speak doggie, but I heard some very bad four letter bombs in there!

Good thing Santa doesn't speak doggie either!

OMG. Wow. That looks delicious. The burgers, not the decorations. Be careful man, if you break one you might not get that bucket of fries in your stocking for Christmas.

Very sad about Graham. And now I totally crave a cheeseburger. It's a strange combination of feelings.

We have Five Guys here too - hmm... I bet there are more than five of those silly humans, they wouldn't be able to get to all the restaurants - must be at least 20 from what I can tell. Great video, no mistaking what you want, Joey!! Sneezes can be very expressive! Mom doesn't trust me with her village - it's up on a high table I can't reach (she thinks I'd break it or something, sheesh!). I feel for you in your frustration there buddy!!

I love when you post video, Joe. Every time you do, my 2 yo Boston boy, Cooper, makes me play them over and over. He loves to hear you snort and snuff, just like he does!

Can't you just swat those decorations with your paws? And while you are at it, have her put some of your cards on display there too.

We don't have Five Guys but that food looks mighty impressive.

Woos, the OP Pack

Ha ha, Joey you really let your mom know what you wanted!! I can't believe she's not going to move her stuff after that. Maybe Santa will bring you a new end table for Christmas ;)

Joey, that food looks awesome. Mom had some Jamie Oliver think last night, with pork chops and pears and parsnips. She ditched me in some dog hotel instead of taking me along.

My friend and I were recently discussing about how we as a society are so hooked onto electronics. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes less expensive, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.
