My friend has two Corgie pups. One male one female, that he can't seem to get homes for. He's offered to just give me the male. (Sigh) I have a Pyranees/Husky mix now. Sbes 15, and approaching her time, and k swore I wasn't going to take on another dog. Then, little Mr. Corgie, squirms into my lap, and starts washing my face, and making plaintive noises.

Thing is, I love Corgies. I'm not looking for a replacement for my current dog, at all. But, all my life, every time I have sworn I won't get another dog, something like this happens. (Sigh). I'm a total sucker for puppies, and Corgies are a certain weakness, as well. I told myself, as well, if I DID get another dog, it would be a Corgie. And then THIS happens.

Lol....I'm doomed.

Things happen for a reason. Years ago after getting a very difficult puppy I said I would never ever get a young puppy again and even when she became that special once in a life time dog I still said no young puppies ever again. After her I added a 1 yr, a 2y old and many years later a 8 month old as I still held fast to no more young puppies then 4 yrs ago when one of the two dogs I had was old and developed renal issues I decided to start looking. Someone sent me a photo of an adorable red merle aussie with beautiful blue eyes problem was it was a 10 wk old puppy so I said nope NO puppies! About two weeks later someone posted a photo of a little mixed breed puppy in a high kill shelter in Texas ( I am in Calif) and then moment I saw it I knew it was my dog and did not matter that it was a puppy. In May it will have been 4 yrs and I have no regrets as my Chaos is a fantastic dog, funny thing was she was such an easy puppy too so I have no regrets.

PS a Corgi puppy would be VERY difficult to say no too

Aww....congratulations!

Sometimes things just happen! When I decided I was ready to look for another dog, I wanted and was passively on the lookout for a small/medium non-shedding mixed breed. I ended up with a 70lb wirehaired shedding machine, and we couldn't be happier with him.

Good luck with the pup, pictures would be welcome!

I haven't thought up a name. I won't be bringing him home till later this coming week. I'll cook one up though. He's certainly been ...convincing..about a home with me. Lol..and knows a sucker when he sees one. I'd like to put up pics, but the function doesn't work from my phone, which is my only internet at the moment.

C'mon, you knew you couldn't really live without a dog

Sounds like you will both be lucky to have each other.

Corgies are awesome! My neighbor has one and we can play fetch until the sun goes down. Just a sweet lovely animal. You will enjoy! Best of luck.
