Tuesdays With Tag - Takin' A Walk...

 It's me again...Tag!
How would you like to take a little walk with me today?
It'll be fun, and you don't even have to change your shoes!

 I love taking walks in our neighborhood (we call them "walkies"), 
and sometimes I get to see really cool things!

I asked Mom to bring along her camera just 
in case I might spot something to share with you.

 I stopped here to take care of a little "business", if ya know what I mean.
See my back leg? It's a new trick I've added to my repertoire.

Right after I relieve myself, I kick my back legs.
I'm not sure why I do it. Something in me says I should,
but I didn't really understand why until Mom explained it.

She says it's an old survival instinct deep inside me that
makes me want to push my scent as far from me as possible.
It's to protect me from predators.

Gee, thanks, Mom. Pffffttt!
I'm not afraid of anything, so I don't think you're right.
I'm just kickin' everything around to let people know I was here!

Hey! Do you see what I see?

My friends the ponies!
They're actually big horses, but when Mom chirps at them to 
get them to come closer, she always says (in a funny high voice), 
"Hi, ponies! Here, ponies. Tag, look at the ponies!".
Works every time!
I get all curious and happy and the horses come right to the fence
to say hi. It's really a lot of fun. They sniff on me and I sniff them right back!

 I don't want to get closer to them today.
Their people are out in the yard with their German Shepherd dog
and I don't want to get him all riled up for nothin'.

Anyway, I hear the call of the open road. You hear it, too, right?

 Come on, Mom. Let's head back home to check out my Flying Cloud.

Mom's gotta take some measurements inside. 
She's going to be making a few homey touches that she thought would be nice.
You know...Girly stuff! 
I think it would be great if she'd make me a doggie bed to sleep on!
I'll let her tell you about her plans another time.
I love my camper! It was my first home with Mom and Dad,
 and I can't wait for us to take a few trips in it again this summer.
Nothin' quite like the call of the open road!

Well, I think I've done enough gassin' for today.
Time for me to get back on neighborhood patrol.
Gotta run! See you next week!
'til then...
"More Waggin' and Less Barkin'!"

Hi Tag!! It was so good to see your post today! I'm glad you got to take your Mom on a nice walk-you saw such lovely things. Horses are a fav of mine. Take care and have a great week! Thank you Mom for sending me the Tahki yarn too!!

Tag this was such an enjoyable walk around your neighborhood. I don't think I would get too close to those ponies either...or the dog with them. Love your newest trick you have "up your leg". Catch you next week...

Thanks for the walk Tag! Totally cracks me up when dogs kick they back feet like that! Your neighborhood is more rural than I imagined in my head. So pretty!
