My interview with Reggie id 717722 - enjoy!
Tell me a bit about your name and how you got it.
I received the name Reggie because my parents are hockey fans. Reggie Dunlop is the main character in the movie "Slap Shot" which is hockey based and that's how I became Reggie. As for my full name Reginald Cornelius, well mum figured that I needed to sound a bit regal since the Corgi is the Queen's favorite breed.
So, you are the shiba forums resident Corgi and honorary shiba. Tell us a bit more about your breed and are you similar in temperament to shibas in any way?
I think in some ways I'm like a Shiba. The most noticeable being that I'm adorable like all of you are, I'm also full of attitude, very smart, and am very active. The most known fact about Corgi's is that we are herders. I have a lot of spunk and can really get the other pooches going, I'm quite the social butterfly, outgoing, friendly, and I'm bold. I have no fear. I keep all around me on their toes.
Do you have a favorite toy? If so, what is it?
It is without a doubt the frisbee. Don't get me wrong I love most toys, but my favorite by far is the frisbee. I could play all day.
Where was your last vacation? What fun things did you see and do?
Our last vacation we all drove up to PA, the parents and the other four pooches. We saw deer, I played with goats, met many horses, came face to face with a groundhog, chased fireflies at night, introduced to lots of new family members, went for walks in all kinds of new areas, smelled tons of new smells (especially at the two horse farms), and even experienced my first flat tire on our drive home in Maryland. I had a great time and can't wait to do it again in a couple of months.
What kind of food do you eat?
I eat a raw diet and my favorite to eat are chicken feet (hey that rhymed)
Are you very vocal and do you bark when someone is at the door?
I am very vocal indeed. I have these big ears on my head that mum likes to call my satellite dishes and I hear everything. When I hear something I LOVE to bark at it so it hears me too. I'm also very talkative so if I want some attention I have no problem letting you know. It doesn't matter who is at the door you better believe that I'm going to bark "hello". Even when my mum and dad come home I must bark at them so they hear just how excited I am they're home and how much I missed them.
What is the naughtiest thing you've ever done?
Hmmm, mum always says that if I do something wrong that it is usually her fault or dad's fault for failing to set me up for success. So technically I don't think I've ever done anything wrong. smile However, I suppose the time that I peed on my older brother Doug wasn't very nice. Not sure what went through my mind but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
What is your favorite place to go for walks? Tell me a bit about it and what makes it so great.
There is this 10 mile walkway that is soooo much fun. There is tall grass to run through, dirt to roll in, and a nice concrete path as well. There are other dogs there sometimes, and always lots of people walking, running, and biking. They usually stop to say hello which makes me very happy. There is also lots of wild life frogs, birds, alligators, geckos, turtles, and bugs. This makes for lots of fun stuff to watch and smell.
Have you ever captured any bugs or animals?
Much to mum's dismay my favorite thing to play with are spiders. It really creeps her out and when she catches me she always makes me stop. One time though after a storm I did find a little bird who hurt its wing and I barked at it furiously until mum came over to me. She was able to take it to the vet where they gave the little bird to a wildlife sanctuary and it made a full recovery.
Do you like going for checkups at the vet's office or are you scared?
I don't mind the vet at all. They are always so excited to see me and invite me behind the desk where they give me lots of kisses. I like to strut around the place I own it.
Is there anything else you'd like to share with the dogs on the shiba forum?
I would love to say thank you to Deshi and family for allowing me to take part in such a wonderful interview. To the rest of the Shiba's don't forget who's in charge our parents wouldn't know what to do without us, and what a boring life they'd lead.
Reggie and family
