Because Awesome Pups Are Awesome

Now for something happy!

Our new little girl, Tanner, is settling in a little more every day.  She’s loving all the cuddles and playtime and—now that she’s well-trained to the invisible fence and the weather is better—is merrily running around the yard, investigating rabbit trails, and bounding on and off the deck just for fun.

She and Gambit have reached friendly cohabitation and are working toward being buddies.  One night last week, we let her in the house while Gambit was still out romping.  She watched out the window until he appeared on the porch, whined at us to let him in, then gave him a quick nuzzle when he trotted inside before immediately acting as if it hadn’t happened.

Already she’s picked up on the House Rules such as “All treats must be taken nicely, with no injury to human fingers,” and “Paws out of the kitchen while I’m cooking,” and “Rough play is acceptable, but must stop when humans say so.”  We’re still working on “Drop all toys on request” and “Come when you’re called even if you don’t want to.”  Those will take awhile to master.  Such is the challenge of a terrier!

We had a beautiful morning recently just perfect for pictures.  I tried to get Tanner to pose.  The result is a series demonstrating her penchant of paying attention to anything and everything that twitches.  Terrier!

Little Gambit, on the other hand, is a bit better on focusing and being still.

He decided to photobomb the shot of Tanner doing her demon impression.  (No, we don’t permit her to bite.  This is acceptable play.)

And at last, Tanner sitting still today with her favorite toy.

I hope the pics gave you a bit of a smile today.  We could all use a few more of those, yes?

Gambit tried to get himself into just about every picture I was taking of Tanner. I swear he did it on purpose. :)

And she's like that almost all the time... unless she's focused on tug-of-war, which is her soul-deep passion.
