View Full Version : Doggy tag

Bud and Tash developed their own version of tag many years ago and still play it today. These are the rules as I interpret them: One dog stands down in the yard (they are "it"), the other one stands up on the porch (which is the safe zone). The idea is for the dog on the porch to hop off the porch and make a circle around the yard without the other catching them and get back to the porch. If they get back on the porch, they are safe and try again. If they get caught in the yard then a lengthy play-fight ensues, after which one dog will return to the porch to start again (it doesn't seem to matter who was last "it"). I'm really not exaggerating, it is very funny to watch. Tasha is far better at the game but it hasen't seemed to hamper the fun for Bud one bit.

Awwww. Too cute. :)

My dogs don't really play tag. Instead Clipse plays "run in circles until your legs fall off" and Emily plays "chase Clipse barking until his eardrums burst" LOL Works for them I guess.
