Taggy!!!

4 Aug

I adopted a second Boston Terrier today! Acutally, I think he’s a Frenchton (part BT part French Bulldog). Trixie’s boyfriend is a Frenchie, so we’re going to say Taggy is their son (even though at 8 years old he’s older than the two of them combined). He’s a funny looking little creature — gremlin bullfrog.

He and Trixie seem to be settling in together just fine and the cats couldn’t care less (he’s smaller than the cats and they might think he’s a toy).Ā  He likes to chew on toys and makes crazy grumbling noises when he does. This is a very cute little dog!

Here he is!!!

    OMG!!!! I believe this is the dog i had to give up for adoption due to a move and circumstances. I have been agonizing hoping he made it to a good home?! Did you get him from a rescue in New Paltz area? Would you be so kind as to contact me just for an update on how he is??? I would really appreciate it. I could forward you pics of him and I have his vaccination records that never got passed along. Is he happy? Ok I am crying.

      I can’t get over this. My son just asked about him today so I typed in his name and boston terrier, thinking what are the chances and this site was the 1st i opened! He looks happy and I am sooooooo glad he is with another boston šŸ™‚ Do they get along? Taggy short for Tagondis followed me around from day 1 I had him, and up until the day I handed him over in July he was so playful! I don’t think he realized he wasn’t a puppy anymore lol! His birthday is June 23rd he will be 9. Favorite hobbies: Follow, stare, play. Shakes toys so hard slobber will fly, and will actually suck on a favorite plush toy like it’s a pacifier. Grunts and noises are hysterical. A loyal gem. šŸ™‚

        Hi Jenna — Taggy is doing great. I did get him from upstate NY and I got all his records from the vet. He’s living here very happily with my other BT, Trixie (also a rescue dog) and two cats. They all get along great and everyone loves him to pieces. The two dogs sleep in a pile together and sometimes the cats join in. He gets lots of walks and plenty of exercise playing with Trixie — he’s half her size but he likes to show her he’s the boss. I’m so sorry you had to give him up, but so happy I could give him a good home — I love him so much and his silly little noises and habits are wonderful. I made a tumblr page with photos of the two dogs: trixieandtaggy.tumblr.com
        Taggy has doggy friends in the neighborhood, too, but he gets jealous of the boy dogs playing with Trixie. Where did the name Tagondis come from?

        Thank you sooooooo much for replying!!! šŸ™‚ I saw the blog page and absolutely love it! Yesterday I have to tell you was just an absolutey great day! When I saw these pics and the comments I knew he was in a wonderful home and it has done WONDERS for my piece of mind! It was a very hard thing to give Taggy away. But after a divorce, and move, and circumstances surrounding that I could not take him with me. I have a cousin who suggested a friend who rescues dogs and gets them good homes but I felt pretty powerless just hoping for the best and realizing I may never get to know what happened with Taggy. I am overjoyed now! I miss him terribly but as long as he is happy, I am happy too!!! Tagondis I made up lol. I use to joke with my ex when we had our 1st baby i wanted to name him Theron Tagondis! lol. My 1st baby was Taggy so he got the crazy name. I forwarded my ex your site also and he was very happy and relieved to know he is doing so well also. And I see you know his quirks and personality quite well, he is original, hahaha cracking up :))) He does have a form of doggy ocd! I would have to take away toys like you cause he would be foaming at the mouth, breathing crazy I thought he would have a heart attack! Wherever I placed the toy (usually on a shelf in laundry room), he would sit there staring at it like his powers would make it fall. Well I can go on and on he was a loyal, kind, great best friend and I am glad he is with you, another boston, and cats (who could of guessed?!) I think that will be terrific for him! God Bless. You will see me make comments in the future cause that site is a real trip, so entertaining! P.S. so glad you got the records. Did u get the pics I sent?

        Hi Jenna — Taggy sent you a message on Tumblr this morning šŸ™‚
        I didn’t get any photos of him from the rescue, but I did get all his vet records and transferred them to my vet. He’s such a good boy — I just fell in love with him the first time I saw his photo. I had no idea he would be so small and was surprised when I saw him in person! He’s a riot — he does the staring at the toy thing here, too, and sometimes jumps in the air at the top of the fridge (where I’ve put the toy out of reach). So silly! He adores Trixie and will just sit there and lick her head until it’s soaking wet. (He also likes her other end, but that’s another story). He’s so funny when another boy dog comes up to say hello to Trixie he gets very jealous — Trixie had two boy dog friends in the neighborhood pre-Taggy and he gets right in between them so they can’t sniff her. He’s such a tough guy! šŸ™‚
