February 10th 1996
Opening packages, rustling ones especially. Being involved in everything what the rest of the family is doing. Hiking. Licking toes. Picking fight with the other males (unfortynately). Powder snow. Chasing hares and ducks. Going to the office.
Fireworks! And rain.
Dirty underwear and rawhide bones.
All human food.
Any walk, but especially running wild in the woods. And belive you me, there is nothing more noble than a corgi galloping around in a northern hemisphere conifer forest: those bold leaps over the blueberry bushes!
Being a true entertainer - he loves to make people laugh.
Back in 1996 my hubby and I were planning to have a dog , but it was so difficult to decide what kind of a dog: a mutt, pure breed, shelter dog ... and so on.
Then one day we were sitting in a tram and a lady stepped in with a welsh corgi. She sat opposite to us with the dog in her lap, and the dog stared at us straight into eyes for the whole tram ride. And we fell in love: he was so full of contradictions: such dignity and self esteem in an amazingly ridiculous package.
So, next day I went to the office and ranted about that lovely dog we saw, and a colleague of mine said: oh, I have two cardigans, their great! And a friend of mine is a breeder with a litter - do you want to go and see them? So, a week later Maxim Corgi (he's real name is Yardican Jubilant!) padded into our lives and hearts.
Unfortunately Max have had trouble with his spine, like so many other dogs with long back and short legs. He was completely parallysed few years back, had his spine operated, and recovered beautifully: thank you, greater powers and vets in Helsinki Veterinary Hospital. So, he has to be a bit careful with jumping and such activities. And altough he is a perfect gentleman to puppies, humans and she-dogs, to other males he is an absolute brute :-( So he carries he's lot of the battle scars...
