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.

To Mommy, that is a 4-letter word.  She does not like the stuff.  She said she saw enough last year when I was just a puppy.  Heaven know how many hours we spent outside while I was learning where I was supposed to do my business.

Remember these photos?

I had only been with my family two days when they were taken!

I was such a devilish little fur-ball!

Well, today, this is what our yard looked like before Mommy took me out to play. 

Mommy had to show me these pictures because I can’t see out the window.

And here is a shot of my “Tennis Ball Trees” covered with snow too!

(You ask why I call them that?  Well, that’s for another post)

I really did not know what was going on.  But I did know that Mommy was taking extra long to get ready to go out.  I tried to be patient…. but…..

Once Mommy opened the door, I darted right outside and waited for her to throw the first ball.  I didn’t even really notice the white stuff.  I just wanted to play.

And play I did!!  I chased those tennis balls all over the yard.

Mommy and I left all sorts of foot prints all over the yard!  These are Mom’s.

And these are mine!

And this is what a tennis ball looks like when it has been rolling around in the snow for a half hour.  Mommy said her fingers were getting really cold and wet, so we had to go in.  But it was a great half hour, for me at least.

Doggy Kisses,



  1. i can't believe you got snow before me. I want to have snow, I need snow, where is my snow.

    Enjoy it for me Tanner


  2. Nice snow there! It's a good thing for the momma that there isn't a lot! Enjoy it!

  3. That makes us cold just looking at 'em!! We're loving our 70 degree afternoons! Mom has a lot more energy on these kind of days which means more fun for us doggies!!

  5. Doggies + snow = fun, fun, fun! Too bad the mom's and dad's get cold...then the play has to end :(

    Tomorrow is another play day though!

  6. Hey Tanner,
