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.

Relaxing with my new award


Mommy and I have been doing something called a “Relaxation Protocol” a lot lately.  Basically, it means that I “relax” and Mommy does all sorts of crazy things around me.


As long as I stay relaxed, I keep getting treats.


It’s a pretty good deal for me, and Mommy is getting a lot of exercise doing the silly things.  I really don’t mind this part of training.

My New Award:

Mommy and I are so honored to receive this award from 2 Brown Dawgs Blog.  What a great way to help Mommy bounce back from her cold. 


When you are given this award, one of the things you are supposed to do is tell 7 things about yourself that people don’t know.  Hopefully Mommy is feeling well enough to help me find 7 things.

1.  I like to walk…. now.  I didn’t always.  When I was a little puppy I gave Mommy quite a fit about walks.  But now we take two long walks every day.  Each walk is about 2 miles long.

2.  I won’t touch my food bowl until Mommy gives me a kiss.  Yes, I am a pretty good boy.  I sit and wait while Mommy puts my bowl on the floor.  Then she comes over to me and gives me a kiss on my “cheek” and I get to eat. 

3.  We don’t have a fenced in yard.  So when we go out to play, I have to be on a leash or a tie-out.  That means Mommy can’t throw things as far as I would like sometime.

4.  I go to training almost every week.  Mommy and I really enjoy my training classes.

5.  I like to ride in the car.  I get right up on the seat and settle in so that Mommy can buckle my seat belt.

6.  My favorite treat is CHEESE!!!  in any form.  I will do anything for cheese.  Even go crazy!

7.  Mommy has to be careful when she gets the cheese out, because I might go crazy.

Now to pass the award on:

There are so many great blogs out there.  It is really hard to choose.  So I am just going to pick the two that are the newest on my list that I follow.

1.  Court of Tails:  Sophie and her Mommy have a lot of great things to share with all of us.

2.  How Sam Sees It:  These two GR’s and their family have a great sense of humor and adventure.

Thanks again for this great honor.

  7. Hi! I found your blog from the CU list. Isn't it great? We are doing RP too. Maizey is on Day 11 and it's a hard one for her. Just a note about mats, we use a mat for RP that's from Ikea, they have some really cute ones, too little for you though!LOL You can see our video on our blog, it's been RP overload over there lately.;)) Nice to find a new cool blog!
