This happened last weekend. My house brother Denver, the beagle was desperately trying to get this squirrel..it was climbing down the dead maple, and mistook that Denny could jump, and high..and got to low, and nabbed him. My human was on the other side of the fence pulling weeds, and heard the screams of the squirrel and yelled at Denver to drop it, but I got wind and ran over and took it away (since I'm boss)..and administered the coup de grace before my humans could get to me to rescue the prey.
I have my humans suckered..and trained!! My thing is to scratch at the back door to go outside; bark up and down the fence line, especially when the school bus comes by, because the driver waits for me, then guns it and I give chase to the end of the yard giving my obligatory bark. After which I head to the back door, give a few scratches and then one of my humans comes to let me in, except I do not go in, I sit there looking at them..and then they go to the cupboard and get one of my treats to pay MY toll to come in, mainly because it is usually cold, and they want me in because their precious feet are freezing. HA! I don't feel the cold..! So needless to say, I get a treat every time; I have them SO trained.
And the funny things is, they still call me the most handsome and smartest corgi around!!
It's coming to the end of summer. It's been a fun few months since I arrived here at Chateau Norton. My mommy and daddy have put me in school. They say they're doing it for my own good. I think they're doing it because I did a little modification to the various pieces of furniture...with my new adult teeth!! Sheeesh!! I have to break them in somehow!! DUH!! Needless to say, mommy and daddy aren't too pleased. Lemon, Beez'Lee and Rambeau didn't seem to mind, so I figured..what the hell, eh? I got to see one of my new human grandmas for the first time. She thought I was really adorable, except when I greeted her with some playful love nibbles...again, it's the new teeth, they speak to me!! ~~~"Chew Em Up Angus!! CHEW EM UP!!"~~~ I must be going crazy...but then, I'm still a puppy, so I'm going to be like this for a while longer.
