Corgi Death Match

I have to apologize for the lack of posts in the last few days. No, I haven't been standing in line to get a (non-existant) Wii for the big guy for Christmas, nor have I been indulging in too much pre-Christmas cheer of the liquid variety. Suffice it to say that between having a puppy trying out to be a new member of the family and moving my mother into her new garden apartment, it's been just a little wacky around here.

For those of you who have yet to venture into the land of double-dog-dom, be aware that it's not just twice the work, especially if one of them is a puppy. Albeit a very sweet and happy one who's (almost) house-trained (and no, you're not going to get the blow-by-blow on that one). It just means that you can't leave the house for more than three hours at a time and you've got to know where the little guy is at all times unless you feel like risking the aforementioned house-training incident, or a shoe-disembowelment, mentioned below.

The good parts, though, are so far outweighing the frustrating ones, though Dave's lawn-mowing shoes are looking a little the worse for gumming. Any others have been moved up out of prowling range. And Chester still rules the roost, having done a little intimidation of the glare-and-cuff variety.

So, how are they two canines getting along? Judge for yourself:

OK, so I know that whole post is for my benefit, so THANK YOU FOR SHARING! I love to see how similar the corgis are, that head humping move is one that Tai favors immensely. Also all the growling. Tai will add crazy barking to the repetoire.

I'm not ready for duo dogs yet, but someday!

Walker is adorable, but Rosey rules.

I saw those wild corgis in action....awe inspiring. And pretty darn cute, too! Let them loose on the world, I say!!

I'm thinking sending them on a clandestine mission into Dick Cheney's office to clean him out. Next the Oval Office!

Hey! Those are Cardigans! My folks have a Cardigan. I'll have to send this along.

By the way, make sure those two stop by the American Enterprise Institute to wreak some havoc on their way to Cheney's lair...

Kathleen Bauer said...

Yes, indeed they are "Cardies" as the dog people like to say. And thanks for the suggestion...I'll put it on their to-do (or is it doo?) list!
