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.

Meeting the “Top Dog”

Mommy and I go for a walk every morning and every evening.  Sometimes we meet people.  Sometimes we hear strange noises.  And sometimes we meet other dogs.

I have met this particular dog before.  But last night, I found out who he was.


This is Ziggy.  Apparently, he has known my Mommy for a very long time.  Sometimes he will be outside when we walk past his yard.  He doesn’t have a fence and he does not have a leash or a tie-out.

Ziggy is a very well behaved dog.  And last night I found out why.  Ziggy has had a lot of training.  His Daddy, Mommy and HS came out to see Mommy and me last night.


At first, all I wanted to do was jump, play and sniff.  Then Ziggy’s daddy took my leash. 003

I learned pretty quickly that it was okay to sniff and be sniffed, but the jumping was a bad idea.  Ziggy growled and put me in my place.


By the end of our visit, Ziggy and I were sitting calmly, side-by-side.


Mommy tried to get us to pose for a picture.  But we both seemed to be looking different directions all the time.

Mommy says, when I learn my recalls better, I might get to be off my leash too.  She says it will only be to play with Ziggy.  But it still sounds like fun.

I’m off to practice.

Puppy Kisses,
