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.

New Nephew and a House full of people!!


I am not really sure what this is, but Mommy is really excited about it.  She says her little brother had a new baby this weekend and he is her nephew.


This is Mommy’s brother UJ with the baby right after he was born, yesterday at 8:09 am


The little guy is 7 lbs, 9 ozs and 21 inches long.


UJ and Aunt Suz are still trying to decide on a name.  We’ll let you know when they decide.


Meg had a party on Saturday night.  Mommy and Meg spent a lot of the day cleaning, baking and moving things.  Mommy said I was truly a big help with the cleaning.  I followed her around while she vacuumed and dusted.  And I didn’t bark at all.

Right before the party, Mommy moved all my toys back into the bedroom.  I just could not figure out why!!  I spent a good bit of time going back and forth from the living room to the bedroom, till Mommy closed the door.

When the first guests arrived, Mommy tried to put me in the crate in the bedroom.  I didn’t want anything to do with it.  I barked and barked and barked till Mommy came and got me.  She put me on my headcollar and short tab leash and kept me beside her for the party.

I think there were a million people here.  Most of them, I knew.  I wanted to love everyone and have them all pay attention to me.  Mommy said, no.  I had to sit with her.  So, I decided to BARK.  At random times during the presentation, I just opened my mouth and spoke!  Mommy was not happy. 

Mommy says she should have had more people come to the house when I was little.  She took me lots and lots of places so I got used to traveling, but she didn’t have a lot of people over.  I guess we need to work on that situation.

Needless to say, Mommy does not have a lot of photos of the party.  She was too busy holding on to me!!! 

Oh well.  Maybe I’ll do better next time.

Puppy Kisses,



  1. Tanner, doesn't your mommy know that we only bark so that people will pet us? I am really good at that. ;)

    PS Congrats on the new addition to the family. He is beautiful. I guess it will be a while before he will be able to pet you! (Best not bark at him. :))

  2. Wow, Tanner, that is a cutie for a baby, but I think you are way cuter!

  3. Congratulations on the new non-fur baby! ;)

    Don't worry, Tanner... I do the same thing. Anytime anyone else comes into my house, I go crazzzzy!

    Woofs & hugs, <3
