Dweeb Report - Keeping Mom Amused

It's a tough job but someone has to do it - keeping the Mom (or other Mommy) amused while she is confined to bed.

Dad left a little packet of yummy cheesy Doritos for Mom encase she got peckish but we convinced her that we needed to do a taste test on them for her  - as you never know what terrible "lergies" (dog speak for bacteria) could be hiding on them.

My dogness here we are are offering our lives to save the Mom - it's a tough job!!!!

Needless to say some of us (well one of us) is not so stupid as to offer our lives up just willy nilly so we let Dweeb #1 go first :) :)

Being the Dweeb that he is he wasn't even concerned about the threat that hung over his head by consuming a POSSIBLY deadly infected Dorito. Nooooooo his whole focus was on the yummy cheesiness of the the morsel. Can you believe he even convinced Mom that he had to have a couple of the morsels just to make sure they were okay.

There was a lot of crunching and slobbering but he didn't suddenly drop dead so we deemed it was safe for us to try them too. (Mom tried to get pictures of this but we gobbled them down so fast all she got was "blurs of fur" as she called it).

We convinced Mom that we had to keep trying the cheesy morsels.....I am sure you ALL know how these things happen - it is ALWAYS the last Dorito that could be the bad one. I am pleased to report that through our diligent efforts we can say the entire bag was PERFECTLY safe.  Dog oh dog we were brave - right down to the very last one!!!!

Mom had a kind of sad expression on her face when she looked into the empty bag - we thought at first she was sad that she hadn't got to have one - but then we realized she was just humbled by our complete devotion to keeping her safe and sad that she didn't have any more to give us.

I wonder if we should point out that there are more little packets of Doritos in the cupboard?


  1. Your bravery is unmatched. Better to keep the mom safe from the icky bactria buggies than to have concern for your own safety. Way to go.

  2. Quick, run to that cupboard - must do more taste testing. Hope Mom is doing better.

  4. You boys are so very brave! Yes I think you should test the next bag too. You never know!

  5. Wow - your devotion is amazing! I hope she appreciates all you do for her.

    Thanks for your suggestion as to what to do with the box from you know who... I thought it was excellent advice, but my asst. is still laughing. I tried to explain that this is hardly a laughing matter. Hopefully she'll go buy some cement mix and get busy soon... before it's too late.

  6. How wonderful of you three to test those doritos first to make sure they didn't have any bacteria that would harm your Momma. Such brave souls!

  7. We are always ready to sacrifice ourselves for our peeps. Well done, guys!

    Hope your mum feels better soon. And your dad leaves another packet of Doritos.

  8. We like doritos too. If you need any help let us know.

  10. She needs to teach you how to retrieve them. :D


  11. Hope you are feeling better. Hope you don't have to take those pills for a long time. With the cost of those pills you will not be having treats. Take care of your Mom.
    Thanks for being a friend

  12. Yes, everything must be tested before it goes into your mom's mouth!

    You're so brave and loyal! Good boy!

  13. You're doing a great job, make sure it's all suitable for her to eat.

  14. Good job you guys sacrificing yourselves for the good of your mom!
