Tuesdays With Tag - Walkies and A Winner...

 Hi, Everybody!
Mom and I went for a walk down our street this week. 
We have new neighbors all over the place, and I'm excited 
because some of them even have FOUR legs!

Our newest neighbors aren't very far away from our house. I even got
 a whiff of one of them. My Corgi senses stood right up and I had
 to investigate further. I cozied right up to the fence for a better look.
 Can you guys see what I see?
 Come on! Look closer. See the pony waaayyy back there? 

Mom said that he usually hangs out loose in the front yard when she drives
by, but not this day. She said next time she sees him out she'll come back and 
get me. (Of course, we're assuming it's a "him". We don't really know yet.)

She said there's another surprise in their yard, too, but you can't see it here.
She told me a goat  lives in this yard with the horse. I can't wait to sniff a goat!
 We were walkin' back home when I heard someone followin' us. They
 were actually sniffin' our neighbor's horse's yard! (It's ok. There's plenty
for everybody.) I turned around first, and then Mom turned around 
so we could both be neighborly and say "hi". I was likin' this walk!
 I decided to just sit a spell and wait for 'em to catch up. It didn't
 take long 'cuz they were walkin'pretty fast! Mom took the lead and
asked all the questions while I nonchalantly exercised my nose.
Trust me. I was smoooooooth!
This pretty lady is a new neighbor on the other side of our house.
She's married to a musician Dad knows and has played with in
Port Charlotte. Her name is Suzanne and she's really sweet.
I hate to admit I was too sidetracked with sniffin' and snortin' that I 
plum forgot this guy's name. He's a Sharpei that Miss Suzanne and 
her husband rescued. He's still growin' into his wrinkles!
 I decided to be a little cautious with him because he was still a
little "post-rescue" nervous and I really want to be friends with
him. Mom is always extra protective of me so I don't get hurt, but
we were lookin' out "extra" to make sure there were no shenanigans.
Mom and Miss Suzanne agreed that once we're better acquainted, 
we can all go for walkies together! I'd like that a lot.

I really like walkies. You never know just who you'll run into!
It's time to announce the winner of my Birthday Giveaway, too!!!
 I may not look like it, but I'm really jumpin' up and down inside.
So, Mom let me push the button to choose the winnin' number,
and the number generator kicked out:

This is the note Miss Kris left for me... 
"Happy Birthday to my favorite Corgi in the whole wide world!
May you have many, many more healthy, happy birthdays! And
I like your little birthday bib, errrr I mean, bandana!! :))"
Real funny! Well, Miss Kris (anyway). You've won a $10 gift card
from Paneras and a special Corgi mug mat in your favorite colors
made just for you by MOM!
Please contact us by email PDQ to let us know your favorite color
so Mom can get crackin' on your gift. (She's got jury duty and 
is teachin' classes this week, so she'll mail it out to you early
next week if you get back to us right away.) Congratulations!

Thanks to everyone for my Birthday wishes and for enterin' my first
giveaway. Next year, Mom said I can give out more prizes again.
'til then...
"Wag Like Ya Mean It!"

Tag I think you were very wise to sit and hold back a little from Suzanne's rescue dog who looks a little excited (and hungry). Lovely weather for walking and exploring. Congratulations to Kris. Smooches...

Donna, This is such an adorable post...oops, I forget I'm talking to Tag now...Well Tag, I think you're just the cutest little pooch ever, and quite the writer because I'm always very entertained by what you have to say! A very Happy Birthday to you cutie pie. Have fun getting to know your new little friend and that horse next door too, but stay far away from his back legs because you know how horses can be sometimes!...Congratulations to Kris! xo Paulette
