Cheeseburger Friday for Joe Stains


I just wanted to check in and let you know that we are OK and that I am OK and not TOO sad. We cannot thank you guys ENOUGH for all those comments. We will visit you guys this weekend we promise.

We miss that Joe Stains so much our hearts break a little all the time, BUT Joe Stains was never about the cry cry and sad. He was about the celebration. So in his honor we are declaring today...


When we figured out the tuna was really winning against Joe the only weapon we had left to fight it was CHEESEBURGERS.

Joe got LOTS of cheeseburgers the last few weeks, so we thought it would be nice to have every dog get some cheeseburger in his MEMORY. ok?

I KNOW it is shorterest notice so maybe we can have Cheeseburgers SOMETIME this weekend ok?

Get the don't want to upset Angel Stains...

Angel Stains
You won't like him when he is angry!

I am wondering if those tornados were just Joey making his mark over the rainbow bridge. Cheeseburger day sounds fantastic (now if I can just get the DOH to remember).

That picture is so Joe!
My peep and I have been reading your blog for quite a while now,
and many a time have we been shaking with laughter at Joe's grumpiness and your antics, Tanner.Joe hated the cold as much as I do and I love fries too!
You and your peeps will be,perhaps, happy to know that my local Boston Terrier Meet-Up group, up here in Canada, posted "Cheeseburger Friday" along with the blog and tumblr links on its message board. Joe Stains is reaching worldwide and a lot of Boston Terriers are licking their chops in loving memory of him. I sure did!
And, Tanner, I hope you keep on blogging, even if only on Tuesdays.

My mom ate some McDonalds tonight, but didn't have a cheeseburger. We'll have to go back this week in honor of Joey. Ooh, that Joe Angel sure looks seriously scary with his glowing halo...Tanner you had better not make him mad! Now he can see what you're up to all the time ;)

Whooooo! We got the burger meat, we got the cheese and we got the bunz. Tomorrow will be official Cheezeburger Joe Stains Day!

We love the Bad Angel picture of Joe with the glowing halo. So perfect! (well, yes, except for the jammies).

I like to think of the USA covered with a smokey haze from all of Joe's pals makin' cheezeburgers.

We've been out of the blog loop and just heard the news about our wonderful Pal Joey. He was Petey's sidekick in Beagadoon, a groomsman at his wedding, and his partner-in-crime for more than a few adventures. We loved his wit and wisdom, and of course, our shared love of the Yankees. Miss Sophie Brador and her chauffeur will be here next week and I promise that she and Petey will share a burger in honor of Joey. He was a funny little tough guy with a heart of gold and I know your home must feel empty without him.

Love from Jane and Petey

I'm so sorry to hear about Joey. My M has been so busy nowadays that she doesn't read blogs as regularly and only found out through my friend Joey Jack Russel.

We totally understand how you feel, but that's the way with us dogs, our lives are shorter than humans but with our short lives, we strive to brighten up your day, everyday!

I'll make sure my M gets me a cheeseburger REAL soon to remember Joey by!

We are heartbroken. We only just found out and we are so so sorry, Mum especially always had a soft spot for you guys so she is springing leaks as we type but I have made her PROMISE that we will ALL have cheeseburgers in my buddys memory and we will SMILE. I'm so sad that we are never around anymore, but that doesn't mean we don't think of you, we absolutely do. True furfriends leave their pawprints on your heart and we love you dearly. Stay strong buddy, Mum sends a gentle kiss for the tip of your cute lil nose and a very big hug. Ben xxxx

I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
