Tuesdays With Tag - Oh, Say, Nurse...

Brynwood Needleworks - Nurse Taggart

 Hi, Everybody!

How's things with you since we last visited? Me? Oh, just peachy, thanks.

We could start out by sayin' that I'm gettin' regular rations of my favorite kibble and snacks, but nooooo. When we went to the vet, I was up a measly two - count 'em - two pounds, so now I'm on reduced rations. Oh, the inhumanity!

Then, there's a certain Black Dog who's managin' to steal all my extra attention from our people. They're always poppin' there head in the room, chirpin' to her to make sure she's comfy.

"Bella, dear. Would you like a treat?" or "Bella, sweetie. Is your leg comfy?" or "Bella, honey. Is that naughty Tag botherin' you?" What in tarnation is up with all that?!!!

As if that weren't enough, then, this happens. That's right. A bloody great dog bed appears in the middle of the livin' room. Right in front of my sofa. Guess who it's for?

Ding! Ding! Ding! You got it. Herself must be comfortable when out of her safe, secure, secluded kennel. She's really soakin' up the attention, and milkin' it for all it's worth.
She sees the vet twice a week, and comes home with a new colored bandage. They're making sure she doesn't get bed sores on her leg and foot. I really don't mind, except she's showin' off her new bandages like she's Miss Black Dog America or somethin'!
Then, when Mom and Dad go about their business, I'm expected - as her Big Brother - to make sure she behaves herself. Well, behavin' in my book is runnin' around the livin' room like a maniac and barkin', so when I start doin' my thing, guess who gets hollered at. Yep. Mr. Healthy Pants.
I guess I'd better get a stuffed corgi dummy and start a ventriloquist act, because that's about all I'm allowed to do so that Boo stays quiet and lets her leg heal. Boy, the things I'm gonna teach that dummy to say! I'd better keep my (other) thoughts to myself for now, and start my newest crossword puzzle... sigh
 I'll see you again in seven. 'til then...

  1. wow, lots happening at your place, Tag! Sorry your treats have been cut back - know how that feels! How did your buddy hurt her leg? Poor thing.

  2. Oh Tag the endurance of it all! You are a wonderful big brother not to be jumping on Bella...or bitin her or...well you know how much you could be doin to/with her. Your treats would return much faster if you could be runnin around and sheddin those two stupid pounds. Who says what weight we should be?!! Mr. Healthy Pants...please keep it that way my Little Corgi Cutie. Smooches...
