Tag! I'm it!

So with Taz gone, there hasn't been an awful lot of training going on here. In fact, between the subzero temps and Craig's spondylosis acting up, there hasn't been much (okay, any) time spent with sheep at all. So we've been laying low here at Chez Tazimodo.

But we've been called out of hiding...

We've been tagged by Jenny Glen (who really should be writing a guest blog here, since, well, Taz is currently training at her house instead of mine). The rules are simple: go to your photo archives on your computer and go into the 6th folder and count up to the 6th picture and post it on your blog, along with the story that goes with it.

So, without further ado, this is the picture in question:

Aww, how appropriate! It's baby Tazzy! He was about eight weeks old in this photo, full of promise and ready for adventure. I was pretty clueless about stockdogs in those days (some might say still...) and found him on the recommendation of a woman in the local border collie club. I was looking for a dog whom I could learn to work stock with, and I lucked into a well-bred pup with tons of potential and a fantastic temperament. He is truly a dog like no other. I love my Tazimodo!

So...now it's my turn to tag six more bloggers...let's see...
Shoofly Farm
Pippin's Gentle Blog
Willow's Rest
Julia MacMonagle
Live Like a Rock Star
Crooks and Crazies

I can't wait to see what you guys post!

I've been tagged a couple of times on this but my 6th folder only has 5 photos. :-)

Dying to know- How is Taz-man doing???????

Laura said...

Taz is apparently doing fine. I'll write a post soon about that...

Rockstar and Kipp said...

Good to hear Taz is doing well! :) I'm sure you are missing him like crazy.

Thanks for tagging me, my post is all set up! Although it's kind of an....icky (for lack of a better word) picture.

Laura said...

Oooooh, Amy, that's a good photo and story! I mean, not good that it happened, of course, but it's definitely a real story. I hope Kipp's all better now!
