My name is Tallulah-Belle. As the story goes, I was the most fiesty of the litter, and could charm a room, so mommy named me after Tallulah from the kiddo pie-throwing gansgter movie Bugsy Malone. Check out my music video.
Back to me. Those that know me think I'm spoiled. And I thank them every day for the adoration. I eat my meals and rest on my king size bed. It's my purpose in life to be spoiled and spoil. I'm a healer, and I heal with love. I also find love in people -food, electric blankets, friends, sleepovers, and cuddles. Never too many cuddles or kisses. If you can catch me. Many have tried.
If Tanner says he can catch me it isn't true, bless his heart, but when he decides to kick it into high gear playing we have a blast. He sleeps a lot, so I tease him until we're eventually ripping through the house, panting and wrestling. I cant imagine a better ying to my yang. That little dude is a riot.
Hi everyone! I'm Tanner, but my crew call me Tanner Banananer. I've also been called the "Fun Police" but I'd like to plead my case. I have anxiety. There, I said it. I'm not afraid to be me, and my family and friends support me. I've come a long way since I lost my p**p at Santa Cruz. My blonde hair, puppy eyes and pout may appear adorable to you but don't let these teddy bear looks fool you. I get what I want when I want it. But if it's something you want, just take it slowly. Like I do.
It's a gentleman's technique really. Sit closely, stare in my eyes, I then touch your hand, gently but persistently.. At first they think I want to shake hands, humans! lol.
Anyway, one time with when Tallulah dug under the fence on her daily quest for adventure, I noticed the neighbor's gate was open. I communicated with my paw. Yes, my paw. That's when they realized I'm not just the most photogenic face in our home, but a strong defender. I saved her life. Once everyone realizes I'm the alpha I think I'll stress less, in the meantime:
Do not pick me up, I'm not a teddy bear.
Do not yell, my feelings are sensitive.
Do not cut my nails at home, I am stronger than you. Don't make me show you.
If I roll my "Rs" - back it up on out of my personal space. I'll let you know when I want you. Hand signals, remember?
I LOVE music, really LOVE music, in the words of my theme song, by 1974 artist Andy Kim
'Rock me gently, rock me slowly, take it easy, don't you know, that I have never been loved like this before"
Speaking of love, I LOVE my Tallulah. She is my partner-in-crime. Together we decorate the backyard landscape with our favorite house items. Slippers, underwear, teddy bears, wrappers. toilet paper. It's the best. She is the definition of fun and everyone's favorite, mine included. When I can't sleep she cleans me until I'm sleepy. That's love.
OK, that's me. Now check out our pics.
