I take no leave of you, Miss Bennet. I send no compliments to your mother. You deserve no such attention. I am most seriously displeased.
Lady Catherine, Pride and Prejudice
I was so charmed by [JP] that I lay in bed late last night looking at iPhone videos of corgis herding, swimming, retrieving.
My corgi has this sort of effect on people.
We went to a dog expo on Saturday. We sat and talked with one of the exhibitors (who is also the newest member of our kennel club) for a long while. She does dog carting and also studies bamboo. Did you know they make corgi-sized dog carts? (did you even know dog carting was a real thing?)
The little Corgi full of love and spirit! I love this little boy he is a one of a kind and has awesome potential in the performance arena!
For those unfamiliar with this breed you can simulate the experience by finding a stocky, fluffy dog of normal proportions and sawing its legs in half.
Every breed has flaws and things that are challenging to live with, and each owner should realize what they can and cannot deal with.
Humans love to refer to corgis as ‘big dogs in a small dog body.’ This is terribly wrong. Papillions are big dogs in a small dog body. Corgis are big dogs with no legs. If one jumps on you, you will know this is true. Knock off the ‘small dog’ stuff!
The most important thing that we have to provide every day is that we are the pack leader, that we set the rules, the boundaries and the limitations, and then we love. Most of the people, they go to get a dog because they need somebody to love. So they are going after what they need, not what the dog needs.
