Weighty matters...

So you ever hear that saying that the camera adds 10 lbs??

I believe we have proven that theory with THAT particular photo.

Don't believe me??

Good gravy. I think Tanner's new years resolution was to turn himself into a French Bulldog.

But it has only added 10 lbs to his body. His head doesn't look 10 lbs bigger and it's looking a tad too small in that last pic. Look out Tanner! Your body is going to swallow your head.

Bwahahahahaha! My ma ape claims that the camera adds 10 lbs to each of her 10 lbs. The same may have happened to Tan Torkelson.

See, we have been calling that thing the flashy beast for good reason.

Hey, watch it!! That is a stereotype there!! Maybe some Frenchies are couch potatoes, but this one is solid muscle, a lean agility machine. Maybe I could hook Tanner to me & drag him around the course to give him some exercise? Better have the oxygen tanks handy...

Umm, not to go all "Lacie" on you Tanner, but exactly how many cameras were on you? Gotta be more than one!

Maybe you need to fly over here to the beach with me. We can go chasing seagulls on the beach and before you know it, your manly waist will return. Gotta get into tip top shape for Mango Minster 2010. Don't think there's a category for Rolly Polly Pups yet.

Your pal,

Hi, Joey!
Well... it could be that... or maybe Tanner ate more than needed these past holidays!!

I think he was a little pudgy to start with but Christmas came and he followed his new BFF Jameson around and ate everything she did.

That is probably how it all happened.

Kisses and sympathy,

Weight is just a number. (But I wouldn't listen to me, I am 30 lbs!)

Well, if he is really working toward looking like a French Bull dog, he is doing a good job.

We think he gets too much of his Mama's great food. That is what the vet is always saying to me, anyways.

You know. Special effects can work to your advantage. Or your disadvantage. Only the editor knows for sure.

Hi, Thank you for calling in, sorry Tanner but you do look um a little rotund.

Blogger Teddy said...

Uh-oh, is Tanner on a diet now? Seeing yourself in photos is a good motivator because it makes you look fatter.

Of course, Joey, you and I always look perfect and don't have to worry about that.

But looks at yer chiseled abs n rock hard pecs! It's not eberyday you see a BT wif such a fine physique. I say 10 lbs of MUSCLES!

Blogger Emily and Ike said...

Ike's mom here:
In all seriousness, any change is diet or explanation for the weight gain? He is getting older, and it might be time for a thyroid test.
PS - I keep getting mine tested and it comes back normal! Grr!
