Quick Bio:

February 16th 2008

He absolutely loves to get in the car and ride to the doggie park.

He does not like it when kids run towards me or my son. He thinks they are going to hurt us or something and gets between us and barks. He also doesn't like it when he thinks our cat, Suzi-Kay, is going to eat his food. It's hilarious!

Favorite Toy:
He absolutely LOVES his bear. He has played with it since I brought him home. It now has no eyes or stuffing and it stinks to high heavens, but it is his favorite and I wouldn't dream of tossing it.

Favorite Food:
Well, he loves string cheese and mesquite turkey breast, but we have come to find out that his belly doesn't like it much. So now, he has to settle for actual doggie treats (beef n cheese carry outs)

Favorite Walk:
He likes to walk out in our back yard. We have a long tree line along 270 and he always makes a beeline for that area and tries to catch the birds, to no avail though =]

Best Tricks:
His "roll-over" is the cutest thing ever, but his favorite is "speak" (go figure).

Arrival Story:
Tank was originally named Hank. He was my sister's dog but after a month of having him, her schedule just became too hectic and she told me I could have him if I wanted him. I was already in love with him and had told her before that if she ever wanted to re-home him, I would GLADLY adopt him. So... I did. I didn't love the name Hank, but I kept calling him that for a couple of days. I watched him and his personality and realized that he was more of a "Tank". He thinks he is so big and invincible. He was (and is) VERY protective of me and my son. One day I just said "he is more of a Tank than a Hank"... and since it sounds so much like the previous name, he answered to it and the rest, as they say, is history. I love him so much! He has brought me sooo much joy and I would like to think I brighten his days too. The way he is ALWAYS sooooo happy to see me, just melts my heart. It was meant to be, that's all there is to it. =]

Forums Motto:
Mr. Tank - King of his castle!
