We have a new family member, meet Tanner. We adopted him from Safe Harbor Lab Rescue and he’s already found a way into such a big part of our hearts. He asked if he could introduce himself and I said yes. Here’s his story:
“Hi, I’m Tanner! I love everything and everybody!
It’s been about a month now and I’m really settling in at my forever home. I’ve done a great job transitioning from a city dog, always wanting to ‘go potty’ on perfectly manicured squares of green grass. My people say I’m a ‘mountain dog’ now, which I am pretty sure is a good thing. Especially the part of being a mountain dog where there are tons of chipmunks at my new house!
I’ve gotten lots of fun new things like a Kong that gets filled with peanut butter, man I love that thing. Mom told me to spread the word that she buys most of my doggy stuff from Amazon Smile so we can donate to SHLR just by buying me all the things I need!
They take me on these things called ‘hikes’ where there’s tons of good stuff to sniff and lots of mud puddles to splash in. Last week I got to see this stuff mom and dad kept telling me was ‘snow.’ That stuff is incredible! Have you checked it out? It is so fun to romp in and eat!
Mom and Dad also take me to the doggy park where I meet lots of new friends to play with. They say it’s a good time to get all the ‘crazy’ out. My favorite doggy park has a kiddie pool where I can blow bubbles out of my nose and eat them!
I’m a giant cuddle bug and forget that I’m not a little lap dog, but I love the time I get to share the bed and the couch. Mom and Dad say I’m a spoiled dog but I’d say I’m just well taken care of.
My manners are really improving too! I know how to sit, lay down, shake, ‘leave it’, come, wait, and everybody’s new favorite, I can high five!
I love to sleep like superman on my back, mostly because I’m dreaming of the next amazing adventure mom and dad will take me on. You can follow me and my adventures on Instagram @snowmasstan.
I love my forever home, thanks Safe Harbor Lab Rescue!”
