Tuesdays With Tag - Getting Along With Kes...

Kes asked me today if I was actually going to start writing about her newest little affliction.  I had to explain to her that Tag's fans are anxiously awaiting news of just how he's fitting in here at Brynwood.

She just sighed and said, "Fine. When are you going to write about this old dog? Tag. Tag. Tag. All I ever hear is Tag!"

I told her I'd include her in my first official Tuesdays With Tag post. That seemed to settle her down a bit. It's really difficult nearly impossible to take Tag for a walk that Kes doesn't want to hobble along. Seems she's more jealous than protective, but she tolerates him as long as he isn't trying to bite her face or feet. She hates that!
We took him for his first visit to the vet last week and I'm proud (and relieved) to announce that he's received a clean bill of health. The vet says he's perfect...having all the essential elements in all the right places. You know how happy we were to hear that good news! He also has spots on his tummy that our granddaughters refer to as "polka dots"...and our grandson says that Tag reminds him of a little bunny when he's lying down. Our own little "bunny butt with the polka dot tummy"! I like that.

Tag officially weighs 15 pounds, and as you can tell from the age ticker that I've installed on my right sidebar, he's now three months, three weeks and two days old. Pretty soon he'll be growing into those ears of his!
He's doing a fine job of becoming a good corgi citizen. We're working on sit, stay and "don't jump" right now. All the little girls love him unless he jumps up on them. It's just not the polite thing to do. I've been telling him about the adventures he's going to have once we start herding tests, so it's very important he learns the obedience basics first. He's not convinced yet, but we'll keep working on it anyway.

He also learned a new trick last night and jumps through my arms when I hold them in a circle. He did it about ten times before he lost interest. Once I know it's not a fluke, I'll ask Handsome to do a little video that I can share with you.

Well, Kes just came to inform me that I've written quite enough too much about "that darn corgi" for this week. I'll make sure she's napping next week when I write his post. We don't want the Labrador getting her nose out of joint, after all.

Yay, our first Tuesdays with Tag post!!! And an extra special bonus that Kes was included, too.

Love BOTH your pups. :-)


Minimiss said...

They are both gorgeous pooches. I look forward to many more "Tuesdays with Tag".

Mandy said...

So nice to hear that both dogs are getting along well with each other. Thanks for sharing.

Carol said...

Kes has certainly had a lot of adjusting to do this year.

Well, I am reading this at 7 AM and when I read this:

Once I know it's not a fluke, I'll ask Handsome to do...I thought you were going to say DO IT TOO. Gosh, I gotta get another cup!!

Kes really ISN'T saying all that. She's really saying she is so glad you all are happy again and this young pup is keeping her young!!
xx, Carol

Sounds as though Tag is learning quickly what every good mannored Brynwood puppy needs to know! Kes actually looks happy to have a side kick. Here's to Tuesdays!

Marydon said...

Tag is just darling, Donna. Good luck with such a successful training, thus far.

Still chuckling at Carol's comment ... another cup o'coffee for sure, girl.

I'll try & make a note to remind me for next month. We are on the road & I had pre-posted this week. There are just some small things in our childhood that we wished we still had ... a bike in the front yard filled with a basket of flowers would be stunning. I am still trying to find an oldie to do this with.

Have a beautiful day, my friend ~

So cute!!!

Createology said...

How thoughtful of Tag to share his first Tuesday post with Kes. Afterall Kes is the mentor with all the tricks known to dog and human at your household. Tag sounds like he is adjusting perfectly in spite of Kes not liking the biting/playing. Training Tag will be your full time job Miss Donna...at least for a while. Happy Tuesday dears...

Penny said...

I think tag and Kes are both cute - as far as dogs go.

Hope they both have a great week.

Now Kes knows how Jan felt on "The Brady Bunch", Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.... I am delighted you had a good visit with the vet and have a healthy boy! I have been on vacation and just now getting caught up with everyone.

Greetings, Donna,
Sounds like never a dull moment there with Tag and Kes. Keep us posted! Have a wonderful Wednesday. ~Natalie
