Toven says your words have pleased him, and he will consider sparing your life when he becomes World Overlord.

Trying to photograph Toven is basically impossible.

Relaxed to the max.

GUESS WHAT CAME IN THE MAIL TODAY?!

Toven could not care less, but I’m super excited! It’s just as cute in person as it was online. Thank you guys for helping me pick a color. :)

JP judges you from above.

Or maybe he’s just stuck.

The overlook on the bike trail at Panola Mtn State Park, from a corgi’s POV.

We took JP to the Carter Center/Library and the MLK Memorial a few weekends back. It was really important to me that we go to the Carter Library, and not because of the whole “former US president” thing.

Back before I was born, my parents were living in Atlanta, right near where Kevin and I are living now. They would often walk their dogs at the Carter Library. After I was born, they’d take me there, too. We moved to SC when I was one, so I’ve never gotten to see it, but I’ve heard stories about how my parents would supposedly run into Jimmy Carter there all the time. So we finally went! JP was super pumped. This was the only picture I was able to get of him! He was sprinting everywhere.

Then on the way home, we saw signs for the MLK Memorial and decided we should drop in there, too. JP was pretty tired by that point, so we didn’t stay too long. I’d like to go back to both soon (apparently there is a walking trail that links both sites?).

So I was reading in bed when the strangest thing ever happened. Toven came to snuggle with me! He actually buried his head in my lap and fell asleep. Needless to say, JP was not happy about it.

JP went to the vet this morning and was very well-behaved. He’s now up-to-date on all his shots and we have the paperwork to register him with the county (which is so weird to me, as a non-city person. A tag just seems easier). He’s getting his teeth cleaned in a month. The vet wants a urine sample before that apt… how do you go about getting a dog to pee in a cup?? I feel like this will be difficult and embarrassing….

In response to lemonsthecorgi, the vet did try to collect a sample while we were at the office. They had a ladle to catch it with (the problem was JP was too quick). Since I don’t want to use my kitchen utensils for the job, I think freshrosemary ‘s idea of attaching the cup to a stick will be easiest. I already know I’m going to look like a crazy person while attempting this stunt.

Here is a picture of JP behaving himself while Toven licks my smoothie cup.

Note from Kevin: “Say that it looks like JP is wearing a hat. Because that’s totally what it looks like. You can’t unsee that!!”

Last night I had a dream that JP could manipulate reality. He used his powers to save me from a lion by turning the ground into a slippery hardwood floor. The lion kept slipping and falling so it gave up and didn’t eat me.

I told Kevin about it this morning. He said that if JP really had a power like that, he would just use it to turn everything into kibble. This is probably true.

JP, in nature.

They wouldn’t look at the camera, so I said, “cookies!” At least I got the attention of one of them.

How JP greets me when I get home.
