All He Wants for Christmas is...
Tag was born with a charming personality and a bad teeth. He's one of the few Border collies I've seen that has an underbite.
Over the years, he's lost a few bottom incisors while playing tug games with the other dogs. Last week, the now 10-year-old Tag was down to two bottom incisors and a nub.
Yesterday, during his dental cleaning, the last of the bottom incisors were extracted.
But he still remains a charming, manipulative Border collie who knows how to make the best of a situation. He walked over to me and whined, and I prepared some rice with butter for his dinner; and I sat with him on the couch.
And he started to feel better.
Though I'm pretty sure I heard him whisper that some chicken would surely lift his spirits.
