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.

Mommy’s Sick Day

For the past several day, Mommy has been sounding really funny.  The first morning that she got up with “larry-gitice” I didn’t know who she was when she talked to me.  She could not talk very loudly or for very long, but she still kept working with me. 

Here is a video of Mommy working with me on Friday evening.  Listen to how silly she sounds.

Mommy could not play much longer than this video.  But it was fun while it lasted.

Mommy has kept going for the past several days, even though I know she was not feeling well.  But yesterday, that all changed.

Mommy spent the day laying on the couch in the living room.

But in the afternoon, we did have some fun. 


Mommy went down in workroom and got my blue ball. 

She figured out that she could sit on the couch and throw the ball down the hallway, IMG_0666and I would chase it.  We did this for quite a few hours yesterday evening and last night.   I was so tired when we went to bed, I could not even open my eyes to say good night to Mommy.

Today, Mommy feel better.  We are back in the work room and I have all my toys around.  Hopefully Mommy does not overdo it.  And hopefully life will get back to normal soon.  I don’t like it when Mommy is sick!

Puppy Kisses,



  1. Awww, Tanner. It stinks when our family is sick, doesn't it? My mommy and Taylor have been sick for a few days now -- it's definitely no fun for Nala and me!

    Hope everyone feels better soon. <3

    Woofs & hugs,

  3. What a good retriever you are! Hope your mom is feeling better soon. :)

  4. No fun being sick. But your mommy very is dedicated to work with you even while not feeling well!

    PS I left you something on my blog. If you get a chance, check it out. :)

  5. Oh no - your poor Mum! I bet you've been a great nurse! I hope she feels better soon!

    People around here are talking funny too, but I think that's because they squealed so much when they went to see that Mickey Mouse character - guessing he's really scary!

    Have a fun day buddy,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
