Tuesdays With Tag - My Next Door Neighbor, Holly

Hi, Everybody!
Time for another installment from the road. The weather has been
great and I've been spendin' a lot of time outside with Mom and Dad.

We really like it here at the campground, and I get to meet lots of 
great people and dogs. In fact, there's one livin' right next door to us!
This is Holly. She's a little beagle and the people she lives with
are seasonal campers. That means that they keep their camper here 
all the time, rather than tow it around like Dad, Mom and I do. It's
pretty cool. They have a deck outside their camper and everything!

Holly is pretty vocal. She bawls when kids ride by on their bikes or on
those pedal car things. She bawls when people walk by with another dog.
She bawls when she sees me outside, 'cuz she wants me to play with her.

I'm a friendly guy, so I like to say "hello". We run around in their yard,
and her tie-out is so long that she practically barks in our front door!
Only problem is...shhhhh...she's a butt sniffer. That's right.
There I am "tendin' to my own knittin'" as Mom would say, and next
 thing ya know, she's got her nose up in my business! Well, hello! I'm
goin' steady, ya know! (Don't worry, Quinn. She's not my type!)

I snap and growl at her just to tell her to back off. I'd never think
 of bitin' her, but I draw the line at this sort of behavior. I've heard
 of networkin' before, but this is not what I had in mind at all.

Once I set the ground rules, we got along just fine. Just pay attention
to my front end and there won't be any problems at all. No butt sniffin'!

I've been workin' on somethin' really special that I hoped to have done
in time for today's post, but it's gonna take just a little while longer. I
don't like to rush perfection, ya know! I'll just have to save it until next
time. Hope you're havin' a great summer. We sure are! So, 'til next week...
"Wag Like Ya Mean It!"

Sweet Tag, sounds like you are having a wonderful summer. No, Tag I don't care much for those "bawlers and butt-sniffers myself. Take good care of your parents and I am anxious for next Tuesday to roll around to see your something special.

I live for your posts a Tag. I do not blame you for being upset with your neighbor. I would be too.

Tag you and I are very much in agreement with the NO butt sniffin. Such an odd gesture when greeting one another. I prefer the smile and nod instead. You my friend are perfection! Happy Tail Waggin and NO Butt Sniffin...

Tag! It's me, Quinn! I have to confess, I met a friend yesterday, too. A tri-color PWC named Molly. She is the first one of our peeps I've ever met! I admit, there was some sniffing, but I think she was checking out my tail "situation".
XXOO Quinn <3<3<3

Tag I discussed this with Cooper and Max and they agree no butt sniffin. Sounds like your having a great summer. We are learning the rules around here and doing very well at it. So far we have not met the bears cause mom keeps us close. Bye for now!!! Have fun.
