Hello, good readers. This is Tucker the Vizsla. Recently some strange and disturbing digital pictures have surfaced here, published by my so-called “brother” Dennis the Other Vizsla, along with scurrilous commentary and wildly unfounded accusations. Do Dennis’s charges stand up to scrutiny, or are they just more of his usual crazed ramblings? Let’s investigate. Come, Trixie — the game’s afoot!
Let us start with the most recent picture and work our way backwards. This purports to show Daddy in the crowd at some sort of hedgehog sporting event. However, a cursory examination of this so-called photograph reveals that the hedgehog “crowd” is actually the same two or three hedgehogs repeated multiple times. Unless hedgehogs have gained access to cloning technology, this is unlikely. Furthermore, Spiny Norman is clearly visible in the background, but as everyone knows, Spiny Norman was permanently banned from the hedgehog sporting scene after it was revealed that he was involved in the Piranha Brothers’ notorious game-rigging scheme. Yet another factor arguing against this picture’s legitimacy is the complete absence of the mealworm vendors who are typically found roaming the stands at such events. And, finally, it is common knowledge that Daddy would not be caught dead at any sort of sporting event, unless “Dungeons and Dragons” or “Magic: The Gathering” tournaments are considered sports.
Let’s move on. This next picture is alleged to show Daddy enjoying a late-night coffee with his hedgehog friend. However, it is widely known that Daddy is always in bed by 9:30pm. Also, health department regulations prohibit diners such as this from serving food or beverages to hedgehogs. And, last but not least, most of this picture is in fact ……. a painting.
This last picture presents the most serious investigative challenge, but let us look at it very closely. While the happy figure in the foreground does indeed resemble Daddy before he has had his coffee, if we look at the light coming through the kitchen window, we can see that the photograph was actually taken in the afternoon. If it were afternoon and Daddy still hadn’t had his coffee, he would not look like this cheerful fellow; he would, in fact, be passed out on what’s left of the sofa.
Further investigation reveals that this is in fact a picture of the notorious criminal Gollum, who was last seen skulking around the volcanic regions of Mordor. And who else around here is a criminal?
That’s right, it’s Dennis — the very same Dennis who has been promoting these pictures in the first place! Clearly this entire thing is some scheme that Dennis has orchestrated; a bizarre plea for attention, perhaps, or an attempt to somehow get more lap time from Mommy. But he did not count on my deductive powers. Shame on you, Dennis!
Elementary, my dear Trixie. Elementary.

Excellent detective work. You may recruit Robert Downey Jr. I hear that he is doing some detective work in an upcoming film role.
Nice one Sherlock, but things don’t always work out that easily.
I get the feeling there is much more to this story.Oohhhh.
I would have suspected Trouble instead. The photo of James before coffee also resembles me, but that is what I look like most of the time! Where did you get my photo?
Hope Dennis is released soon. I think he’s been framed again.
tucker and trixie, super sleuths! you think maybe dennis knows all about your brilliant deductive reasoning, and creates these things to keep you busy?????
tucker is a much better speller than dennis. could it be his east coast education, perhaps? i can’t BELIEVE i fell for those doctored images. if these are fake how do i trust anything anymore? are brad and angelina together, or is it just clever photo manipulation?
I should have noticed that your dad was in a painting instead of a real diner! Then I might have stumbled to the plot.
Brilliant my dear Tucker. Tucker please teach Dennis correct grammar and spelling.
Tucker and Trixe, I just love the first picture of you both!@! With that said…. wowie you guys are so smart!!!! I never thought they woz fake pictures and well Dennis… he does actually have a little bit of a brain!! woah!
But then… are we sure it’s Dennis?? hrrrrmmmmmmm 😛
You are just too cool Tucker. It’s always the older quieter one who does the real work!
That was better than The Bobbsie Twins, The Hardy Boys, or Nancy Drew!

Good work Tucker! Good thing you and Dr “Trixie” Watson (hmmm that sounds like a porn star) figured this out before Dennis decided to take your Dadda hostage from the Hedgehogs.
More lap time with Mommy is something worth schemeing for!

As far as I can recall, this is the first time I have witnessed a well documented case of hedgehog cut and paste.
Well done, Tucker and Trixie, but are you sure that Dennis is the culprit? On the other hand, more lap time with Mommy is definitely worth scheming for.
that first picture is awesome. then the hopper painting? funny.
Shows how carefully I look; I thought the diner scene was a movie still! Thanks for pointing out the truth of that “photo”, Tucker.
Well don!!! You are getting really good at this job.
Wait are you saying them pitchers wuz fake?? Wow! If a dawg wuz intrested in hiring the services of a fake pitcher maker like Mr Ruxpin to make it look like his roommate wuz the culprit in a crime where and how would said dawg go bout doing that? I mean I am jest asking fer a friend.
