coming tooo towwwwnnn

SO if you don't know a lots about ME Tanner you don't know that I was borned and grew up in OHIO. I lived there til I was TWO then the Mom I had before said I don't want you anymore so they put me into JAIL! I was in JAIL for just a little bit when the nice nice lady named AUnt Patty said OH NO you look like that same kind of dog like my dog nephew JOEY. SO nice nice Aunt Patty called up my now Dad and said do you want one more of a dog like JOey and he said YES PLEASE. SO I went out of JAIL to nice nice Aunt Patty's house to live with her and my Uncle DIck and like a million other dogs and cats!! I lived there for some months then we all got in the car and drived to ARIZONA, this is where I live NOW!

WELL nice nice Aunt Patty and Uncle DIck is coming to ARIZONA for Christmas time! THey are flying on a plane but NOT Aire RUby because that is just for dogs. They will be here this weekend and I am VERY excitered!!

Here shows you a map so you can see how I started in OHIO then came to Arizona! The RED Circle on the pennsylvaniania is where my MOM grew up and where My other Aunt Michelle with the three human kids live. ALSO on the map you see LILLIE and um some other important landmarks. I don't understand how our friends in ALASKA have like a zillion feets of snow and cold when its right next to Hawaii who has lots of beaches and hot sunshine. hmmm And I never knew ALASKA was so close to Arizona, maybe I will go there some weekend!!

I can't wait to see the Aunt Patty and Uncle Dick!!!!

oh my, I liked your geography lesson there Tanner.

My Jeannie says she can never get her head round the world.............

well, she would have to have a darn big head to get it round the world I guess.

Any road up, I liked your map very much - you are well travelled indeed.

I am glad you found your furever home.

pee ess Jeannie says she read you were getting a Tesco store in Arizona, Tesco is the best fun she says, I would not know cos I get tied up outside, but she says Tesco has lots of cool dog treats and stuff.

Hope you and Joe can check it out ok!

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

We are so glad you get to see your wonderful Aunt Patty and Uncle Dick. How excitering for you. I don't understand how alaska is so cold either but mom said something about how it's not really down there they just put it there because otherwise it's above Canada. Weird huh? I don't understand it.

Visitors from Xmas are the besterest...especially if they come to visit from near Pixburgh! Pixburgh has jails too. That's where Sherman & Penny came from. Jails are stooooopid! I'm glad you're not in one anymore T-Doof.

That is so sad that you were in jail Tanner but it looks like things worked out great for you in the end.

We hope your aunt and uncle have a safe trip and bring you and Joe lots of presents!

Hey Tanner,
Thanks for sharing the map with us. I didn't know how near Alaska was to Hawaii! You sure travelled a very very LONG way to be with your parents and Joey. :)

Tanner...We are excited about seeing you, too! (???) All of you "doggies" are special in your own way...And, are especially, special! (Joey..I'm sorry about this whole driving to Arizona with the "Doof"'ll probably never forgive us)

Thanks to all the Dogs who bring us Comfort and spite of the pee stains, shoe chewing, garbage raiding. Nobody does "peace and joy" better. How can dogs bring us so much peace, while at the same time creating so much chaos. Go figure?!

Happy Holidays to the DWB's. I enjoy seeing and hearing from all of you!

Your Aunt Patty and Uncle Dick are our HEROES and so is your Mom and Dad.
We are so so so happy for you and even for Joe Stains too, because he might not admit it but we believe he likes having you around better than being all alone.
We thought the same thing about Alaska. Looks like we should see about chartering Air Ruby to catch some rays!
happy smiles-

Thanks for the geography lesson. We think your map might be broken. We thought Lorenza lived in Mexico, but on your map it looks like she lives in Hawaii - or maybe Alaska

That's soo sad that your 1st owners threw you in jail but lucky you to be adopted by your 2nd owners now. They sure love you loads! Wow, what a looooooooong way from Ohio to Arizona.

Oh! Aunt Patty is the greatest! She bailed you out of jail! Did she post your bail? If you are naughty will Dog the Bounty Hunter come and get you? Why does he get to call himself Dog when he's like a total jerk. He should be Cat the Bounty Hunter.

Anyway, it's the greatest that you got bailed out of prison to move across the country to live with the King of the Stains. Happy Ending!


ps. Is your mom from Jackman Ave? Because that is in Pennsylvania too. Steelers and Jackman Ave are in that red circle.

Hi Tanner!
Wow, you came a long way to your new home! I didn't know Arizona was so far away from me in Canada. But I guess it makes sense - it's so warm where you are and so cold where I am. But then how does that make sense for Alaska and Hawaii. Wait, now I am confused...
Love Clover xo

Blogger Snowball said...

Wow... Tanner, you are so smart. You know how to read map. You should have stayed in Ohio cos that is much closer to Lillie but then again, we might not even get to know you at all so we are still glad that your current and forever daddy said yes when your Aunty Patty ask him if he would like another dog like Joey.

I share your excitement in meeting Aunty Patty and Uncle Dick again. They sounds like really nice people.

Love your map, makes it very intesting... I like to share my map too.

Blogger Grammie said...

It is wonderful that your Aunt Patty was able to see the potential in you. She must be a very insightful person to realize that you would do so well in AZ. I am not sure about that Alaska thingy either. Peanut's mom has been there, so she probably is right about it being above Canada.

10:14 AM  
Blogger Petra said...

I can't believe the mom you had before said she didn't want you anymore.

But I guess all things work out for the best, because if that hadn't happened, then your Aunt Patty couldn't have found you and you couldn't have made that very, very, very long trip to Arizona and you couldn't have met your new mom & dad.

And there wouldn't have been a Tanner Tuesday, either.

Give your Aunt Patty lotsa kisses!

Oh and I forgot to tell you - my Uncle Travis and Aunt Tyler (she's not a dude) are coming from California where there are beaches and sun and Tyler has never been colder than 30 degrees! HA!

Wow Tanner. I see now where mommi goes to play golf sometimes. It is one big golf korse. It looks pretty faw from INdiana, where we live though. She must fly on aire ruby. You know, we used to be neighbors, if you live in oHIo.

Hi Tanner
Your Ant Patty sounds nice - that's awesome that she's going to visit you! You guys need to be on your best behavior when she's around - like no "makin' luv" to her leg or anything, ok?
