So guys, this is TAN TORKELSON...this Friday is my TANNERVERSARY! I have been living in ARIZONA with that Joe Stains for FIVE years. Can you even believe it?!?! Five years ago that nice aunt Patty drove me all the way from OHIO to live here with my new family because some jerks in OHIO sent me to jail. Guess what I get as a present for my Tannerversary?!?!

AUNT PATTY! She is coming here to visit me!! Well, Joey said she is visiting my FAMILY too, but I think its just to celebrate MY Tannerversary!

Mom says I have made her laugh and smile a WHOLE lot in the last 5 years. Here are some reasons why...


Doofus FACE

big tongue


Mom said she wants to share one of her most favoriterest pictures of me ever...

Tanner toes

WTF that is just my FEET! Humans are so weird.

Five Years of Tan Torkelson....OUT

Happy Tannerversary!!

What wonderful gift Aunt Patty is....

We agree with your Mum's choice of photos...It's a great shot of you - you don't look too fat or too skinny or too doofus or too annoying to Joe or roid raging.....

We also like the pic of you & your Dad driving in the truck with you helping him watch the road....

Enjoy & pawty hard when Aunt Patty gets there....

Give Joe a big AIREKISS for us...

That's so cool that Aunt Patty is coming to celebrate with you! She's the BEST! Is she also coming to celebrate that the Browns won their game?!?!?
Play bows,

How do we know those are really YOUR feet? Maybe they're Joey's feet. This calls for an investigation!

Happy Tannerversary! We love the photos your mom picked out. Oh, and our Muzzer and Dad came home today like "oh Wow, we met the cover girl from the 2008, 2009 Boston Terrier calendar. We bet if Joey and Tanner come to visit, we can get them introduced." And I said..."WTF! What about ME?"

Ahem. I will not repeat what she said to avoid spreading the gross libel and misdemeanor character assassination in her answer.

Suffice it to say, if you come to visit, we can fix at least one of you up with a hot chick.

Five years? Joey should get a medal or something for putting up with your doofiness for that long.

But I do kind of want to just shout it out...


Hey, that felt great. Maybe you are on to something.

Happy Tannerversary, Tan Torkelson!
What did your name used to be or did they just call you Doofuss all the time?
Its great Aunt Patty is coming and don't worry because nobody is going to send you back to Ohio or pack you up in her suitcase. Joe might try but your Mom wouldn't let it happen.

Cheers for your years!

So. Are we still friends? Even though it's been like AGES since we've been around. And Moma doesn't even let us snoop around on that twitterplace anymore, either? Lucky for us we got here in time to wish you a happy Tannerversary (how come blogger doesn't like that word?). We hope it was a VERY SPECIAL day. For Aunt Patty (we've got an Aunt Patty, too) AND for you. Five years is a great milestone. (Thank dogness it hasn't been five years since we were last here. We already feel like we've missed a lot.)

BTW. Remember how we had trouble getting your bloggie address right so your updates show in our sidebar? Well. It's a problem again. You sit at the bottom of our list. And never budge. And we KNOW you two are out and about. Can you help again?

Your staining cousin,
Jake (Fergi made me say that) and Fergi

(I HATE it that OurNinaGirl has left me alone. And I have my special ways of showing it ...)
