I've Been Tagged!

  So, I was responding to some of my comment love the other day, when I visited Shraddha and April Belle's blog, The Self Love Project. I noticed that I had been one of three other bloggers tagged to participate in this photo tag. According to them, the rules of photo tag are:  Open your first photo folder. Scroll down to the 10th photo. Post that photo and story on your blog. Tag three others (or more) friends to do the same. So, now it's my turn to tag... I am going to pick three other mama blogs that I follow: 

So, now it's your turn, ladies! :) Have fun!

My story about this picture: My first photo album on my computer is all pictures of two of our "other kids"... our Pembroke Welsh Corgis! Before our son was born, we took TONS of pictures of our animals! A little background/explanation is probably needed for our dogs' names... The bigger/fatter Corgi with the black snout is named Siu Mai (pronounced "shoe my"--"Siu Mai" is a pork dumpling served for Chinese Dim Sum). The smaller Corgi with the white snout is named Macchiato (after our favorite Starbuck's drink... Caramel Macchiato). We also call them "Chimpy" and "Chompy", because Siu Mai likes to whine like a chimp, and Macchiato likes to snap at Siu Mai when they're playing, with her teeth making a loud "chomp" like when an alligator chomps down on its prey. :) Here are the dogs when Macchiato was still a puppy... We had just gotten her about 2 months before our son was born because we thought Siu Mai needed a friend. :) They were sharing a chew toy that looked like corn-on-the-cob. They are very "chewy" dogs... so this toy no longer exists... Also, the bed that they are on in this picture, no longer exists either. We soon learned that they cannot be trusted with a soft, luxurious bed! It's fun waking up to fabric and stuffing all over the house... sigh! Oh well! 
At least they are good to have around when my son decides to start throwing his unwanted food all over the place! ;)

Corgis! I love your expression, "they are chewy dogs..." LOL. At some point we want to get a doggie for our little boy, but I suspect we need a bigger place. Plus... I'm not ready to see things chomped on, little pieces floating through the air. :)

Thanks for participating with picture tag! Loved your selection!
