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 Passed! And got to go on a Picnic!

Yes!  It’s true!  On Saturday, May 21, 2011, I, Tanner Charles, passed my Canine Good Citizen Test!

CGC paperwork

Here is the paperwork to prove it!   Mommy and I worked really hard.  She was so happy, she went home and ordered me a new tag that says I am a Canine Good Citizen!  I was just happy to get the last of my puppy cakes for lunch!


We took some time to rest in the early afternoon.  Then we packed up and headed for my first picnic.  It was at a place called “the Cottage”.  Apparently, Mommy and Daddy have been there many many times before and had lots of fun.  They were excited, so, I got excited too.


When we got to the cottage, I discovered that I had a new cousin.  Her name is Annie.  She was an anniversary gift from Uncle D. to Aunt J.  They had just gone to pick her up.  She is a rescue dog.  She is really happy, but really shy too.

Here’s a picture of Aunt J. with Annie.  (Annie is short for Anniversary!)


We had a good time at the cottage.  Daddy and Aunt J. talked and shared some photos with each other while I ran around on the porch.


And Annie curled up by my water bowl and took a nap.  I remember how tiring it can be to come to a new family, so I let her sleep.


Later in the day, we got to see some geese walking down by the creek.  There were two big ones and 4 small ones.


I got really excited to try to see them!


I had a lot of fun at the picnic.  But by the time they turned the pretty light on, I was worn out.  So I curled up on a mat and took a nap.


And so did Annie!


Today, I am at the vet for the day.  I am not sure why, but Mommy says it will be okay and she will be back to get me soon.  I’ll let you know what happens when I get home.

Puppy Kisses,
