I never thought I'd be one of those people that talks about her dogs like they are real people, but *sigh* I am. Here's a picture of Tanner and Belle. They are both about 3 1/2 years old. Tanner is some sort of German Shephard/Boxer/Bulldog mix, and Belle is a European Lab. If Tanner really likes you, he'll talk to you. He makes this gutteral sound that's not a whine and not a bark, it's so funny. If you ask him a question he'll answer you. Belle will show you she likes you by sitting on your foot. Travis had to talk me into getting a dog in the first place, and now I don't know how I ever lived without them.
