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.

Frisbees, and Balls and Stuffed Toys! Oh My!


I mentioned last week that Mommy and Daddy took me to see an Animal Behaviorist named Nancy.  Nancy told Mommy and Daddy that I needed to play more.  And boy have we been playing.

Mommy and Daddy take me out in the back yard twice a day and throw frisbees, or balls on strings or tennis balls for a long time.  I go and get them and bring them back.  Sometimes we play tug-o-war.  And other times I drop them right away and they throw them again. 

It is so much fun!!  Here is a quick video of me playing fetch with Daddy.  (Mommy was holding the video camera)

I also have gotten to have stuffed toys.  Mommy never let me do that before.  But Nancy said I needed to be able to tear things apart so that I would not tear Mommy’s arm apart.  Here is a video of what I did to one of my toys.

As you can see, I am having a lot of fun!!!  And because I am having so much fun, I am behaving a lot better.  I have not chewed on Mommy’s arm since we came home from Nancy’s house.  I  even got to go on a special field trip with Mommy and Daddy over the weekend.  I’ll tell you about that tomorrow.

Puppy Kisses,



  1. We have had a hard time leaving comments on your blog Tanner, but I think we have it figured now. WE can only leave comments if we are in Google Chrome......

    So just wanted to say, glad to see you and your family have worked out the biting thing. I don't get it either, but My Vickie put a stop to that with me too.


  2. I give the boys those square paper 4-cup to-go holders you get from Starbucks and some fast food places, or the fridge-sized 12 can soda boxes. Henry just loves to rip them to shreds, or play keep-away with Zachary. I find my shoes, pillows, arm rests, etc... remain untouched so long as there are paper products left out just for them. :)

  3. Hey Tanner,

    Wow, you sure tore up that toy!! I've never done that, didn't realise they had all that 'stuff' inside of them!

    I'm learning to play fetch though, that's a fun game - I have to be in the right mood though......

    Glad to see your Mum's arm is getting a rest buddy, sure she appreciates it! :)

    Have a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  4. We are super good at shredding! It's a wonderful thing! Looks like you are having an awesome time at play!

  5. Nancy certainly has some interesting training methods.

    Glad it is helping though. :)

  6. Tanner, sounds like Mom and Dad found you a good behaviorist! I hope you work hard at your new homework.
