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.

I learned something about Mommy

Mommy likes to bake.  I didn’t know that, until yesterday.  In fact, I was not really sure what “baking” was until yesterday.

Mommy started “baking” while I was taking my nap.  I woke up to some yummy, cheesy smells.  I knew Mommy could make good food, but she made most of it on the counter (my kong) and on top of the big black box in the kitchen.  I was not really sure what the bottom of that big hot black box in the kitchen was for.  Until Mommy opened it yesterday and gave me a sniff.


So, that’s what smells so good!!  It smelled like warm cheese.  I really wanted a taste, but Mommy said they had to do something called “cool”.  All I knew is, I had to wait.


Pout!  Pout!


Mommy started to mix up another batch of treats.  This time, I smelled Peanut Butter and Banana!!!!


She rolled out the dough and cut out bone shapes with a metal cutter.


While Mommy worked to put the cookies on the baking sheet, I decided to get a start on clean-up.  I licked the hand towel clean for her.  At least I didn’t jump up and knock the cookies off the counter.


Mommy filled the black box with the cookies. 


And she still had a little bit of dough left.  She put it in a baggie and put that in the big white box where they keep the cold stuff.


Finally, the other cookies on the counter had cooled.


Mommy said this special shaped one was for me to “taste test”.


I think they pass the test!  You can’t even see the cookie between Mommy’s hand and my mouth.


I had to try a second piece, just to be sure.  This one was a little bit bigger, so I took it in the dining room to really enjoy it.

I want to say a special “Thank You” to my friend Sugar the Golden Retriever for the awesome recipes.  Mommy got them and several more from Sugar’s website.  If your Mommy likes to bake, you can have her check them out here: 


By the way…

I lost another tooth yesterday.  Wonder if that means another new toy is coming.


And this came in the mail:

star puppy test


And I got the medal too.  Mommy says I can’t wear it on my collar.  She is getting me a special tag for that.  It should be here in a few days.

Puppy Kisses,
