Having her belly rubbed, cuddling, going in the car, and eating!
Loud noises, cats (even though she lives with three), the gate falling down and clattering.
She's not a fan of toys, actually. She prefers people.
Canned food, or cheese! She is perfectly behaved if you have a piece of cheese with you!
The front lawn and the dog park.
"Dance dance", which is standing on her back legs and spinning around.
It's a long story! I'll summarize it:
I've wanted a corgi for ten years, but for some reason it never occurred to me to look for one in rescues or at shelters. After the passing of Tia, my family adopted a border collie named Tilly but she didn't work out due to extreme, unexplained fear of my brother. Her foster mom was glad to have her back and decided to keep her. :)
After that I went back on the hunt for the right dog. One day I decided to take a trip down to the Sutter County Animal Shelter, which is about an hour from my house. I was going to look at an Australian Shepherd, but it turned out that dog had gone to a rescue. But in the first cage was a beautiful, adorable corgi--my dream dog! She wasn't available for another couple of days but I decided I would get her as soon as she became available.
I was extremely nervous for the days after that... I could hardly sleep and I was hoping so much that I could get her. I went down to the shelter at 5:30 AM to get her because of their first come, first serve policy.
Ten minutes before the shelter opened, a man and his kids ran out of their truck to the shelter's door. Long story short, although all the shelter workers had seen me there two hours before he arrived and I rightfully deserved the dog (and I politely told the family how long I had been there and requested I be able to cut in line because of that), they adopted her to this family. I was extremely upset and cried for several hours, feeling heartbroken that I had missed out on my dream dog so unfairly.
I posted an ad on Craigslist looking for a young adult corgi that needed a home. A woman in Carson City responded, and that's how we ended up with Hooch!
A few weeks after Hooch came home with us, I received an unexpected call that the female corgi I wanted had been returned by her owners for nipping at the kids, and that I had priority on her if I still wanted her. I had to convince my mom because we didn't expect to have three dogs, but I got to bring her home! I instantly fell in love with her and she's my dog now. I couldn't be more thrilled that I ended up with two wonderful corgis!
She was found as a stray in Yuba City. Apparently before she became a stray, she had puppies. We think she's around four years old but it's hard to say for certain. I think she's had a hard life.
Will do anything for cheese or rubs!
