Tanner's greeting

Join me on my journey as I grow to become part of my pack/family. We'll have a lot of fun along the way! Hopefully, I can make you laugh.

Week 5 ends

Yes, I have been attending puppy class with mom and dad for 5 weeks now.  I have learned a lot.  But last night I realized I still have a lot more to learn.


Mommy just took this picture of me sitting on the futon in her work room.  I just love how my right ear looks!

I am getting really close to my “Star Puppy” award.  Next week, I should get that.  But Mom wants me to pass my “Canine Good Citizen” test.

To do that, I have to be able to walk on a loose leash with just my collar on.  I can’t use my head collar and mom can’t feed me.  This is going to take some work.

Thank heaven for cheese!  I like to stay beside mom when there is cheese involved.  Mom plans to teach me using the cheese till I master it.  She keeps telling me “we’ll get it…together!”.  And I believe her.

There was a new dog at class last night.  Her name was Lou!  She is older than me, but I think she had more energy than I do. 

As part of the class, Daddy had to go and greet her.  She let him say hi, then she laid on the floor with her feet in the air to get a belly rub.  She made everyone laugh.  Mom says she is a Black Lab.

And my friend Willie was there too.  He is a bit afraid of people, but he is doing much better walking past people.  His mommy is really nice.  She gave me some water and some chicken.

I really like puppy class.  I like the treats and the skills and spending time with mom and dad and our trainer.  Can’t wait till Tuesday to go again.

Gotta go practice now!

Puppy Kisses!

  1. Tanner buddy, I think you DID grow! You look great! Stinks that I don't have Internet at home yet so I can keep more in touch with you, but I'm just outside the library using their connection right now.

    Great job at class! I can't wait to start classes again too -- I think it's in just a few weeks.

    Woofs & hugs,
