“I am a 2 1/2 year old female pitbull named Tigger. I love peanut butter and hopping around. My mom says I remind her of Tigger from Winnie the Pooh. I am very familiar with a lot of words, especially peanut butter, chicken, and bath. I certainly know what those words mean!”

Tigger’s parents, Troy Cornett and Sharon Dison of Luverne, said she is a very smart girl that recognizes over fifty words including bone, outside, sit, and lay down. Tigger can tell when her Daddy is not feeling well and will go to him for some love, using her nose to push his arm and suggest he pet her. Tigger’s parents consider her a very special part of their family.
