Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Adventures of "CoRg-ZiLLa"...a short story (of nonsense).

This week I'm going to jump on the bandwagon and join in on Angela's meme.
We call Jake, our male corgi, who will be eleven next March, "the normal one."
He's laid back, has good manners, is active, doesn't bark, and is even tempered. He's a coward, but he's lovable.

Then....there's Addie. Addie was two when she came to us, and she was packing lots of baggage. Both in mind, and on her hips. She was pushing forty pounds, and was a snarling hunk of corgi. She grew up in horse stalls, and didn't socialize much. Her world opened up a great deal after coming to us. She became a traveling dog in the corgidoghouse on wheels, and met many folks and their pups in campgrounds. She's mellowed a great deal, in the six and a half years we've had her...however, she's still a snarly, bossy, demanding, barky female with attitude. At least she's down to thirty pounds now, but I digress...




When we visit our animal friends on our country road runs, she becomes the dreaded CoRg-Zilla. In five seconds, she can empty several fields full of bleating sheep. With one high pitched bark and a pop up stunt like a jack in the box, she can set off a crowd of woolly four legged creatures into a unit of fleeting fluff. It's incredible to watch. Sheep mentality amazes me! One yip, and ZoOm...they're gone!

She was SO proud of herself, and seemed to say, "OK Mom, my work is done here, let's move it along!"
She looks so sweet, doesn't she? Underneath that corgi fuzz is an alpha monster.
She's all bluff, and now, we realize it. We both thought that we had made a huge mistake the night we brought her home. Luckily, she's our little girl...but a mouthy one.

Awww! :)
These are great puppy profiles; love how you, too, refer to Addie as your little girl!
Was Addie a "rescue"? Just curious... was Jake a teeny bit jealous when she arrived on the scene?

Awww, now. She was sooo sweet when I came to see her Royal Doggieness!! How is Jake's hedgehog? Keir wants him to come play as soon as we find out where the neon pink frisbee lost itself. You think we can find NEON pink? Not.

Y'all come back now...
