Tanner and his sister Gracie entered our lives after both of our children had "left the nest" and became our new "children". I had to put them here together, because they are NEVER apart! Their mother was a pure bred German Shepherd with a pretty fancy pedigree and the owners took her two times to be bred by a "fancy pedigreed" male, but to no avail. Then the next time they didn't bother, thinking she couldn't have puppies. Well an "unknown neighbor" came calling with the result being TEN beautiful puppies!! Gracie picked me out right away, but Tanner was also a favorite and when my husband saw him, that was it... we took them both home. What a good decision that was! Our "Queen Abbey", a 12 year old black lab, was especially grateful considering the fact that they could play with each other instead of her! She enjoys being the supervisor. I could go on and on about how wonderful they are - how trainable, how cute they are together, how smart they are - but it would take too long. Let's just say that they make us very happy! Tanner is the real "pup" of the two... he tends to be a very sweet "dufus" as far as personality, but is still very smart. He just loves to play, and will do what ever it takes to get Gracie into the game. For a really big dog, he is exceptionally agile and fast! But he also thinks of himself as a lap dog - all 100 lbs of him!

Gracie is our classy one! We call her "Slinky" because she just seems to glide around and moves so quietly and quickly. She's a little smaller than her brother, Tanner, but that doesn't mean that she takes anything off of him AT ALL! Between the two pups, she rules the roost. She really wants to be the Alpha female, but has to give way to "Queen Abbey" for the time being.
