I FINALLY wore David down. I have wanted a Corgi for sooo long. And because I want one, Anna does too. Well, she's not choosy; depending on the day she wants, "more than anything in the world", a Golden Retriever/Great Dane/Boston Terrier/Rhodesian Ridgeback/Miniature Schnauzer/Giant Schnauzer/Standard Poodle or a Pit Bull (!). In other words, whichever dog is passing through her field of vision at that very moment. But once she seized on the fact that mommy wanted a Corgi, she realized that the odds increased if there were two of us pestering David. Or, as she loves to say "Two against one!!"
Anyway, I've been researching Corgis for awhile and they seem like the PERFECT fit for us. They have a "big dog's personality in a little dog's body", they are wicked smart and very eager to please their people.
Now, Corgi puppies are ADORABLE. Seriously. All puppies are cute, but Corgi puppies are, well, here, look:
I mean, have you EVER? Anyway, as much as Anna and I would love a puppy, puppies are so much work. It would be different if we were home during the day to train him or her. So an adult seemed like the way to go, to get the Corgi experience.
So I did some searching and found BB, up top. She currently lives in Montana and has been a show dog and has had several litters of puppies. So now at the age of 5, BB is ready to "retire": to lay around on the couch, eat, get lots of love and just be a family pet. And that's where we come in. I think she and Moby will get along really well, and Anna and I are so excited!! We get her in 3 weeks. Wahoo!
