My sister and brother in law said several months ago that they wanted a
Welsh Corgi. One 8 month old ***** became available on Austin.forsale a
few days ago, and the description looked promising. Plus, I personally
prefer to adopt adult dogs for a number of reasons. It basically makes
them "rescues". <G>

Thing is, I already have 6 dogs and don't really need another! I
e-mailed the kids and asked them if they were interested and they gave
me an enthusiastic "yes"!!!

Welsh Corgi's are really cool dogs. I got her today and she is
everything wonderful I've ever read about them. Housebroken but
otherwise pretty much untrained, but she is "getting" things very
quickly using a lot of petting and a few food rewards.

Damn she is smart!

And ohhhh such a love. A floppy, cuddly little face licker.
She will be vetted on Monday and a spay appointment set up.

According to her person, she was pretty much being neglected where she
was and with her lack of training, I have to agree.

Here's a pic of "Chelsea". The kids will be picking her up the end of
next month so I have that long to give her basic training.

With her loving personality, I think she'll be ideal for the nephews and
active enough to play with the boys. One Nephew is 3 1/2 and the other
is a bit young yet at 8 months, but this dog is anything but aggressive!
She even likes the cats.

Now I just have to keep myself and the housemate from getting too
attached to her. <G> The LAST thing I need is a 7th dog! But, she is
really very personable and easy to love...

Cheers!

You can never have enough dogs, guns, or knives.

Better be, to avoid being stepped on by the catle they herd.

Get her a herd of something to work. A flock of ducks or geese will do.

Do you molest them too? No wonder they want a guard dog.

It's good to have a large fenced yard.

Yeah, that's what I read.
I did not read a single negative thing about them.
That was intereting...

She seems to be most interested in sitting in my lap and cuddling...
I'll see what she does with the ducks.
