Tanner Tuesday!

Mom said that everyone is sadderest about our friend Miss Snickers so I had to come on today and make some smiles for everyone.

SO I am going to show you guys all about the walkies we took this weekend!!

This is a park called THE WEDGE where people used to go skateboard lots on this part that looks like a wedge so the city said lets put a REAL skateboarder park here too. SO THEY DID. So lots of kids go here to ride on those skateboards.

But at this park there are also DUCKS and fake lakes. In AZ they just make a lake and pond where they want to.

This is me trying to go see those ducks to find out what they taste like and Mom said NO WAY.

There are cool bridges to walk on, you can see Joey is in FRONT because he says he has to be the first to check pee mail to make sure its appropriate for me. I think he is just trying to find all the HOT BABES before I do.

MORE DUCKS!?! I don't know why I can't just take ONE BITE?!

There are cools watersfalls and stuff like that in the park too, and LOTS OF SUN since we are in that desert.

Here is me doing my COMMANDO CRAWL. I do this all over in the park, Joey is always like HURRY UP but I am like, I AM BEING SNEAKY!

Joey just liked watching all those skaters going by.

Finally here is a video of me BEING HAPPY and the kids doing their skate stuff! SO I hope that makes you guys all do some smiling today too ok??

Tanner, you DID make me smile! You always do!

That park is totally cool! I have seen some dogs on TV that can skate board. Maybe if you learn, you can go hang out there... and maybe eat a duck too!?

You DO look very happy, Tanner. We have one of those nice skateboard parks near our house too. Mom is always amazed at the large numbers of young people skating there during the day when there is school. We have a lot of fake lakes too and those stupid geese are everywhere, not too many ducks. But we do get duck treats that are really yummy.

Thanks for the upbeat post - we all needed it.

Woos, the OP Pack

Looking at smiles like that, how could we be anything other than happy? Mom used to go to Scottsdale a lot (near Camelback Mountain), but hasn't been there in years. She says it's a very nice place! Maybe some day I'll be lucky enough to visit that park!!

Hey Tanner, it looks like you and Joe had a great time at the park. It's pretty cool that you guys' like those skateboarder's, we can't walk where there are skateboarder's because Swisher goes freakin' nuts. He doesn't like skateboard dudes at all.

We think it is pretty good that your mom didn't let you taste those ducks, you might have got totally hurt buddy. We love your commando crawl, mom calls it Swisher's army crawl when he does it.

Lots of licks--

Hey Tanner! Joe! I just wagged over to get my fix and catch up on your bloggie while I can cos the leggeds been stupid. Busy too.Wickedly good gifts from Jake and Fergie lucky dogs! Your Mom and Dad's visit to Holland looked hot to trot, specially the wirey dude. Can see they went a little potty from Joe and Tanner withdrawl and somehow mistook those two kitties for you. Yeah an easy mistake huh? Did they buy any chance go into them naughty smokin' Cafe's they have in Holland?!! Teeheeeee!!

Tan, it was very nice of you to think of us and make us smile. That's a dang nice skate park, too.

ps. I've had duck! But I didn't have to hunt mine. It came in a bag.

Blogger Huskee and Hershey said...

What a pity that you didn't get to take a bite out of the duckie!! We have some yummy duckie treats and we love them...

Hmmm.. I think you should get to check the peemails first once in a while so that you can get to those babes before Joey does!

Thank you for making me smile today with your post.
