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.

Life in the Swamp

Life in the Swamp!

This is what my back yard looked like the other day! 

We have been getting SOOO much rain that we can almost swim in the yard!
This is what I looked like when I came in from playing.
Yes, Mommy let me out in the mud.  She has to.  I NEED the exercise Every Day!!!  Rain or shine, we are outside.

Our biggest problem right now is that our outside hose is not working.  Mommy needs to find some way to try to get me clean. 

My paws are so muddy!  Mommy has been using a wet towel to try to get the top layer off!

But there is just SOOO much mud on my underside!

This is my front flank.

And my back flank!

And my nose!!
I am a muddy mess!!! 
The good news is, I am getting a bath on Thursday!!!  And these icky mats are going to be gone too!

Update on my recovery

As I mentioned last week, I got a clean bill of health from my vet.  Dr. A said that my wound is healing very well.  Here is what they looked like this weekend.
And the news that seems to be making Mommy and Daddy smile the most is this:  the dog that hurt me is not longer living in our neighborhood.  The family that he lived with decided that he was not a good fit for them and they have found him a new place to live.  Now I can relax and play again.

Hope you all had a great weekend,
Doggy Kisses,


  1. Oh I bet your Mom just LOVES it when you sneak indoors with those muddy paws. It wouldn't be hard to follow you - that if for sure. I am so glad that mean nasty dog has left the neighborhood....how could he do that to you!

  2. I thought we had mud...oh my. We have snow again, but I suspect it will be mud by the end of the day.

    I hope the mean dog has a better life with people who will teach him manners or make sure he is confined and not a danger.

  3. So glad you got the clean bill of health from your vet an so glad you don't have to keep looking over your shoulder when you are out and about.

    I loved the backyard too. that is waycool that you have your own swamp to play in. I would love a swamp, I bet you and I could have a merry time in a swamp.

    See ya next month.

  4. Wow! What a swamp! You are one muddy mess when you come in that's for sure! I bet it's fun though! The bad doggy moved away? Yay!!!

  5. So glad that you are healing and your beautiful fur is growing back. Even more happy to read that the nasty dog is gone.
