1000th POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IT IS HERE! This is my 1000th post! Pop the Champagne, start the music!!! This is the very first picture I posted on my blog on December 11th, 2005!!

We started this blog a long time ago after Mom started posting to a community on Live Journal called "Boston Buddies". Lots of people liked my posts there and encouraged me to have a blog, so I did. Then I met the DWB people and it has been the coolest experience any dog could ever dream of. You guys are all the best. Please enjoy this video of old and some NEVER BEFORE SEEN photos of me. Yes, ME, not Tanner. Tanner has his own day and that is NOT today. But I did let him celebrate with me at the end of the movie.

1000 posts from Rhonda Yount on Vimeo.

Ok guys, now it is time for you to leave your comment with your favorite memory from my blog. Some of you already have on other posts and Mom will try to get those entries but to be safe you are better off leaving it again on this post because she is old and sort of losing her mind more and more every day! We will pick 1 winner and they will receive a fabulous prize.

I want to thank every single dog, human, cat, hamster and creature who has ever even read my blog once. If I made you smile, all of these posts have been worth it.

Mom said Tanner has to be in this post and she is going to pick her most favorite photo ever on our blog...

Invaders from planet terrier

Well, I guess that is what we have been doing for 999 posts, making you guys laugh!!!

JOEY!!!!! My favouritest ever post is when you said you loved me, but I so know that will be the winner so you have to pick someone else. I also totally remember the post when the tree fell down, because that was weird and scary.

WOOT! My favorite ever post is the poop painting post when you poop printed the new couch cover. I laughed and laughed. My second favorite is when you introduced The Stain Award because I won.

we liked the one from 1/28/09. Tanner was growing his dot (which thankfully went away), you were sporting Troy hair, and you had a bag of Pittsburgh Tortilla Chips, and the Super Bowl was about to be won by... the Steelers!
Your pals, Morgan & Maisie

It's easy. Our favourite posts are the ones where you Joey & Tanner are having special cuddles with your dad. Your dad reminds us of B. Burley blokes cuddling with their pups...its awesome.

Congrats on your 1000th post maties. It really is a fantastic blog. Well done on making so many of us smile.

Congratulations on your 1000th post! What a great video!
One of our very favorite videos was when Joey was stuck in his shirt in the Tan not so Dorkelson post!
That will remain one of our very favorites! There is no doubt that you guys have one of the best blogs ever! You always make us smile!

OK, this was totally super hard. I searched for a post you did sometime in the past with you going insane cracker dog totally since we must have watched the movie about a gazillion times, but I couldn't find it. Sob.

So I am choosing the post from February 16, 2009 because I think it simply sums you up. I especially like the tip on sticking your tongue up your mom's nose. I will need to try that.

What a cool video! Does this mean Cowboy Pig will be celebrating with you today?
Anyhoo, our most favoritest post goes way back (Since we have been reading your blog before we even had one of our own).
It was when you were showing us your sketchbook of various stains you have made around the house and ones near the TV. I mean, who knew Bostons could draw that good?
Congrats on # 1000 and making us smile !

Blogger ♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Congrats, Joey, on #1000 = am amazing accomplishment. We have so many favorites, it is really hard to pick a favorite. But since you make us laugh so many times and THAT is a very good thing, we picked your Semi-Wordless Wednesday from July 22, 2009 as our favorite. You were so very much in need of a can opener with your stash of beans lined up behind you. The look on your face is priceless.

My favorite post is the Tanner yard duty day on Sept. 27, 09. The picture of Tanner with his eyes on the front and back yard is too funny! It makes me laugh just thinking about that picture!
Peace out,

Hello! Brutus Rygel and I enjoy your blog so much!! He is a ten year old rescue Boston who brings so much joy to our lives. Now Joe and Tanner do too--they have become a fun part of our lives as our family has to check in on their adventures every day :-)!! My all time favorite blog was the one that had a secret video of Joe enjoying "butt scritches"--a quiet moment but (pardon the pun) full of love!!! Thank you for sharing your family with ours.

Happy 1000th!!!! Wowza, we're just coming up on 300. Can't believe we'll ever see 1000.

Okay, we're mixing up the rules here. Previously we mentioned our favorite post was Joey going undercover in Russia. And that is our favorite JOEY post.

But since fair's fair, we have to pick our favorite TANNER post and that was when he read the dog catalog to us. That was hilarious!!!

You've made us laugh countless times and our blogging experience is so much more fun because of you two crazy boys. (Plus you were my co-star in Beagadoon and a groomsman at my wedding Joey!)

Here's to the next 1000!

Your pal,

It is too hard to pick an absolute favorite because I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! BOL!
Anyways, though, I can pick two of my favoriteS--#s 500 and 501. That was some fun and funny stuff, and I really like the pictures of you with Cowboy Pig.
Here's to 1000 more! And I'm glad you didn't get blowed away by that tornado.

Blogger Koobuss said...

Congratulation, guys, on your 1000th post! That is quite an accomplishment. You could be very proud of that.

You are right about what would be my favorite post. I love your water bottle episode from last week. That was great! The videos are hysterical. I can empathize with poor Tanner since I, too, love water bottles. None of my hundreds of toys crackle like the water bottles. I wonder why. Anyway, you guys are doing a super job.

I also like your refrigerator decorations in the background. What wonderful taste!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

pee ess My mom says that you are to be commended for your staying power. She knows how tough it is to maintain your originality. I just passed my 400th post, and sometimes I think my mom is almost outtta gas when it comes to her creativity, and 400 posts isn't even half of what you've done! That's fantastic!! You guys are great! Once again, congratulations!!!!

My favoritest ever in the world post of yours was about your garage that you were going to open - complete with those sassy garage-wearing duds. If it weren't for you I would currently be unemployed. But thanks to your kindness and trust in a fellow canine, I make a good living and I get to play with my stuffy drill every day. It's a win-win for me. I don't know why humans complain about work so much!

Wow, 1000 posts! Congratulations! My sissy Asta introduced me to your blog almost as soon as my mom brought me home and I have to say, I (and my mom) have had many, many falling-on-the floor laughs reading it. I love your enthusiastic Steelers posts, including the curly hair pic. And cowboy pig is a favorite. But most of all I love your many crazed expressions. Keep on making us smile.

Congrats on your milestone!! That's lots of blogging...good job ;) Hmmm...there are so many great posts. It's tough to pick a favorite. I liked the posts about you watching your Steelers play. The post in Jan 2008 when your team lost showed your passion for the game. I have to say that's my favorite, though it was a sad day.

Blogger BRUTUS said...

Wow! !,000 posts is beyond impressive - it's a ginormous accomplishment!! I'm pretty new here, and just spent like 45 minutes perusing many prior posts, trying to find one to call my favorite. Can't come up with just ONE, although the Christmas Stains posts is pretty impressive (glad to finally see what makes YOU you, after all). Still have to laugh at Tanner's Frenchie impression recently (as if the doofus could ever measure up to the wonderfulness of being a bulldog), and love the one about the Fart Club (I SO want one of those shirts!). Hope that's not too much, but at least you know we looked!!

Congrats again!!

Happy One Grand Post, Joe! My Mom was without a dog, found your blog, loved it and decided to get a dog which is ME. We kept reading and my Mom said, we can do this, Stella, lets have a blog like Joe (maybe not Like your blog but you know what I mean.) So we did and we still love to read your blog and love every one of them. Our favorite is always the Last One we read!

Heres to you and the Doofus lasting at least another 1,000 posts or more!

There's no way we could pick a favorite post. It's impossible. We'd be picking out of a hat. So... suffice it for us to say "Congratulations! And we're glad we'll be around for the next 1000!"

Joey, I'm so glad I found you two because you always make us laugh. I remember one post that was especially funny - when you got your Thunder Jacket. Tanner was wearing his reporter clothes which was a hilarious picture. Then he followed you into the bathroom to interview you and he called you the shaking dog in the bathroom and a sissified nancydog. Then he asked you where people can buy one for their baby dogs. And you, big guy, were talking about how it showed off your muscles! It just cracked us up!!

So congratulations on 1,000posts. Keep it up and I'm looking forward to your next 1,000.


P.S. That post is tied with the one when you told Sophie you love her.

well not sure when or exactly what the post was, possibly just the name of your blog, Joe Stains, attracted me to you.

Because I remember well I had just produced some remarkable stains, never to be forgotten in the history of dogs. Except, I had no idea where to bark about my Stains.

Then we saw the name of your blog on other dog blogs, and I thought to myself.........this is a dog with a blog and some stains I need to meet and measure up with.

Sadly, you are still The StainMeiser, but I follow your teachings, Joe, I follow in your stain steps.

I cannot remember the exact posts of yours, which made me laugh so much I stained things around here even more, but there were many. And many more stains.

from me.

Good luck with your choosing, I know I won't be a winner (I never win anything!) but I just love your blog, and knowing that some other guy, has stained well - possibly the champion Stainer.

We have carpets, floors and furniture, stained beyond recognition, but your stains are just JoeStainable!

love and licks, your pal with the whisky.....
