Arrival Story:
While visiting in-laws in KY I saw a woman kick this tiny puppy off of a tall unfinished porch. I was furious and scooped the dog up while I told the woman that was no way to treat an animal. Her husband told me to take the dog. So I did .. she has been with me ever since. Korkie has some mental issues due to her early abuse. Repeated trauma to her brain has caused her some problems. No real issues, she just gets things done her way - but what real princess wouldn't.

Bio:
Just give me the treat and no one gets hurt!! My name is Korkie and this is my page. Mom says I don't need my own domain but give me time I am wearing her down. Daddy bought me a new house with a fenced in backyard so I can watch the birds, well he says he bought it for all of us but we both know that is just a cover - anyhow I am busy breaking it in right. I got a rough start on life but as you will soon learn I have made up for that. I have been with mom and dad since 25 December 1998. I didn't get a lot of love or attention until then. They saved me from that place and I never have to go back there. Mom says I am a mutt, but I prefer the term "genetically rounded" My dad says "That ain't the only thing that is rounded!" Hey is it my fault that I am well fed, I am NOT gonna turn down a meal, No, no, no ... not when there are starving animals all over the world. And besides my mommy makes sure I have my favorite foods. Anyhow I think I am a corgi mix and mom says that fits me because they are the dogs of royalty and I act like Queen of the house. I knew I was destined for greatness when I was a wee pup. Let me tell you it don't get any greater than this. I have everything I could ever dream of...and then some. My hobbies include treats, sucking on my favorite stuffed animals, but not until I have gutted them and killed the squeaky things. My favorite "georgie" is a brown and beige headless monkey. My most favorite thing to do is SLEEP. I love it especially since I get to sleep on this big bed, of course some nights I have to share it with mom and dad. They tried to get me to sleep in my own bed, but it is just a round pillow on the floor!! Max may fall for that trick but not me, if that pillow is so great why don't THEY sleep down there! My mom and dad don't want to have any tiny humans and that is fine by me. They are sticky and not in a good way -- Mom had a tube irrigation, I am not sure what that is exactly, but daddy said it means no tiny humans, ever. My mom said I am special needs and don't need the stress of being around tiny humans. I agree I am SPECIAL. *grins* Now if Max would just run away with the dog show I could get all of the toys and treats to myself. Life would be perfect. I guess it isn't so bad now, even with Max around. My daddy plays with me a lot, running around, walks, tug of war so I am happy. We live in Virginia and I am okay with that. I just wish it wasn't so humid. It makes my fur a mess. Heh I am only kidding - I am a tomboy. I like to wrestle with Max and play tag with daddy. Max is so gullible though I like to fake getting hurt then I jump up and try to rip his lips off. He is such a titty baby - he always tattles on me. Mom says if I don't stop beating up on him he is going to have a complex. It isn't my fault he never grew into his size. Well that is about for me. Gimme a squeaky toy and a warm bed and I am a happy girl.

Well it isn't my own domain but it is a start.

I have to share it with Max but at least I get top billing.

 

My new room

I didn't get a new sister. I liked her well enough but she was really scared and had never been around other dogs. She tried to bite me. Mom was upset until the nice lady at the shelter told her that she had plenty of interest and that they weren't going to put her to sleep. That's good. I was worried too. I tried to make her like me but she wanted none of it ... I guess she was more of a spoiled princess than me. Who knew!!

Anyhow my mom took away the big bed in my room a while back. She said not enough people visited for her to waste a room entirely on a bed - so she converted the room for me. Well ... she says it is for her but she put my favorite chair next to the window with the bird feeders. I say it is for me!

I love my room. I get to lay about and watch the birds and the squirrel. Of course that is until Max comes in and scares them away. I swear he thinks everything is a snack. The big oaf!

Mom put a little tv in the room too and sometimes when she is busy with work she turns on Animal Planet in there and I get to watch. I like Jeff Corwin, he's cute.

I'll get mom to put some pictures up soon.

Mom says we might be getting a sister. Her and Pops went to the SPCA today to meet her. Tomorrow Max and I are going to meet her. She is a Corgi like me. I hope she realizes that if she comes to stay with us that I am the Princess and she has to do everything I say.
