Tanner and his new "tricks"

Tanner has been pretty bummed lately with all the loss DWB has experienced and his not so nice BFF experience.

To keep from getting too upset, he has been concentrating on some new um well, he calls them "tricks".

This one he calls, "Looking at two things at once." um, ok Tanner...good job?

This one he calls, "Looking at one place only halfway."

This one he calls, "Mom was not looking for 5 minutes."

Finally, he calls this one, "I am a Rabbit give me some carrots please..."

Well guys, I hope you enjoyed Tanner's new "Tricks" and that they made you smile. He really is a special dog isn't he??

It's been a very sad time, not only in our DWB family, but we just lost a long-time church friend. Thank you for showing us Tanner's "tricks" - it did make us smile.

I loved the video of the quivering nose too........yes, exactly how does he do that thing?

My J can move her ears, but this is another story and you would not want to see. One of the reasons why we insist she doesn't get her hair cut!!

Tanner is more than SPECIAL. He is in a very elite group of specials that the likes of Dawson and Foley belong.

How does he get his nose to DO that, man? He really does look like a rabbit. Has he been hanging out at the Playboy Mansion or something?

You're right, Joe. He IS a special dog!

Tanner is one talented doggie! We think he is training for the upcoming Spring Holiday. Maybe he can get a job in the photo booth at the mall?

Tanner's got great tricks. They are very special. I'd love to see a video of Tanner's tricks set to a soundtrack of "It's Tricky" by Run DMC. That would rock.

I don't get the rabbit one, but then I am almost drunk on fun in the country. My mom is stuck in NY with Asta and Petey. She can't possibly be having fun. I'm sure she would much rather be rolling in the snow with me than hanging out in NY. Wouldn't she?

Tanner tricks was just the pick me up I needed. Boy what a rough start to 2009 we are all having, too much sadness by far.
Millie thought the *rabbit* trick was adorable, she went running off to find carrots (hmmm she may be a mini doofus in the making!!) anyway she sends puppy kisses to Tanner.. apparently she is a doofus fan!!

love and tailwags,

Hi Joey,
Tanner definitely cheered us up with his 'tricks'! I think he can cheer anyone up just by simply being himself, that's what that makes him so special!

Tanner, you are so clever!! I wonder if we'll learn some of those neat moves in my training class too ;)
