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.

Yes!  You read it right!  I finally got to go camping with Mommy and Daddy!!  I was not sure where I was going when Mommy first put me in the car.  After all, the last time I went for a long car ride, I ended up at Doggy Camp.  It was a long time to be away from Mommy. 

But, when we went down to the storage lot and hooked up the camper, I knew we were going on a new adventure.


In case you don’t remember what our camper looks like on the outside, this is a photo from the day we picked it up.  I have to say, I was a bit freaked out that day.  I have never felt a car bounce quite like that.  Every time Mommy stopped, the brakes made the car rock back and forth.  But I think I am getting used to it.

We went camping with Kels family at a campground where they are members.  We shared a site with them.  It was a lot of fun.


I got to see my buddy Max (Kels dog) even though I was not allowed to get too close.  He curled up on Meg’s lap to take a nap on Saturday afternoon.  He really made her laugh when he started to dream.

By the way, Saturday was also Meg’s Birthday!!!  Happy Sweet 19 to the best human-sister in the world!!


Our camper is not huge inside.  But it is big enough for Mommy, Daddy and Me!!  This is me, laying on the floor while Daddy and Meg watch tv.


And this is Me, helping Mommy cook!  I can get under her feet as easily in the camper as I can at home!


And, this is Me on the couch!!  Mommy left me alone inside while she was sitting by the camp fire.  She brought me in because I was trying to eat rocks.  Mommy said I  can eat all the leaves and grass that I want, but not the rocks.  So, I got to go inside for a while.  And this is where I chose to take a nap.  The nice part, Mommy was not upset when she caught me!!  Boy was I surprised!


In fact, I even got to sit up on the couch with Megs later in the evening.  I guess this couch must be like my futon in the workroom.


And here I am relaxing with Daddy after supper!  I sure was a tired pup!! 

Well, this post is getting long, so I think I will tell you about the reason I am so tired in tomorrow’s post.  But the bottom line is, I LIKE CAMPING!!  And Mommy says I can come a lot more often.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Puppy Kisses,



  1. hey Tanner,

    Pawsome! Camping looks like so much fun! And your camper looks cool. Love all the pictures, especially you with your human sister Megs. So cute! Happy 19th Birthday Megs! Hope you had a blast!

    Max looks like a fun pup! Must have been nice to have a fellow doggy to hang with. :->

    Thanks for sharing your super fun adventure, Tanner, and I am so furry happy you were able to join your family on their camping trip!


  2. We used to go camping too. It was the best. At the camping place there was swimming and lots of room to run. We don't have our camper any more though because we grew to big for it. :(

    Looks like a nice camper. Glad to hear you had so much fun.
