Tuesdays With Tag - The Fetching Fool...

Many of you already know that Handsome and I raised and trained hunting retrievers together for over twenty five years. Handsome has at least that many years B.W. (Before Wife). It should come as no surprise then that we were going to attempt to train our Corgi to retrieve, too!

Well, I'm here to announce that Taggart is a "fetching fool"! Actually, he's a natural! He needs to learn delivering to hand (including turning to return the dummy instead of running for the hills), but it's so much fun to see his enthusiasm.
When he reaches the tossed dummy, he snatches it up as he runs past. He's going to make sure it doesn't get away! We won't even talk about how fast these little dogs can run.
Look at his style! Hanging on to his prize until Handsome can take it from him. He's already thinking about what's next! ("Come on, Dad! Throw another one!")
Just like in the movie, Babe. "That'll do, pig. That'll do." We'll work play again tomorrow and he'll get better each time! I can't wait until he doesn't need the "come back lead"! 'til next week...

Tuesday already! The week flies by quickly.

Now you've done it. Changed a short legged pixie into a fetcher. Don't you dare try to make his ears flap when he's at full pace!!

Way to go little Tag! I bet he is a hoot running full tilt for the hills on those precious wee legs! It makes me smile just to think of it....
Have a great day all and a big hug to Tag!

It can't possibly be a chore to teach that funny little guy. His energy and enthusiasm come right thru in your photos!

Looks like great exercise for both Handsome and Tag...just disguised as fun fetch and retrieve. Happy Tag Tuesday...

Tag is quite the fur baby and a joy. His fetching skills are so fun.
Have a great day.
Always, Queenie

When I saw the title and the photo....I was not sure which one you were talking about! LOL The "come back lead" would come in handy around here!

You can see that he's loving it. When does the video come out?

Lovely pictures, Donna. I am well aware of how fast those little Corgi legs can go! We had a couple of real hot days here and I booked Honey in for a bath and clip as she was obviously feeling the heat so much, she is due for the clip tomorrow and the weather has reverted back to quite cool and rainy! :(

That is just so sweet! He looks like he's having the greatest time. What a cutie pie. :) Glad the training (oop...play) is going well!

Hi Donna, I am having a little me time this evening to catch up with my friends in blogland. The week is flying much to fast and I am hating to see Thursday cone. Our son is heading for Kenner, Louisiana for a new job. We are spending as much time as possible with him. Your Tag is so cute. Shorty"the kid's corgi" was having a lot of fun running with the boys. I can still see him hopping like a rabbit in the snow. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.

Patty said...

He sure is a cutie and clever too.

Michelle May said...

Such a smart boy he is!

Go Tag! He's so adorable...I want to squeeze him.
We finally got Henry to catch his frisbee in the air. These little furballs sure love to play. : )
Have a great weekend!
