Chubby’s favorite cuddling nook. He always has to “hold” my arm (tuck one paw under and drape the other over) while he’s curled up there. We get twice the cuddling this way - I cuddle him, he cuddles my arm!
Sunny afternoon at Jack London Square :)
While on a walk, Chubby discovered a couple of geese protecting their lone egg. The female goose was very threatened by the evil monster and kept honking and flapping her wings in intimidation. The male, nearby, quickly waddled over to join in the angry honking. It was pretty heartwarming to see the show of parental instinct in these geese. Canadian geese usually have 5 eggs per nest, but they only had one - hope they didn’t lose any eggs to predators.
(Btw, did you know that Canadian Geese are monogamous and that most couples stay together for all their lives? Thought that was kind of cute.)
This doesn’t seem right. Did you forget my order again?
Last week Chubby met up with Hami (short for Sir Hamilton Barksworth) for a long-awaited playdate! Chandra, Hami’s owner, ended up getting him after messaging me on tumblr asking about Chubby. Since we didn’t live too far from each other, we got the corgs together for a playdate and it was the greatest thing ever.
The two of them were crazy frolicking and frapping for two and a half hours through a sunshower (rain was falling while the sun was shining). It reminded me of the saying in Japan that foxes get married when sunshowers occur. Very appropriate, since Chubby and Hami, with their tails, looked like little foxes and were absolutely in love with each other. I’ve never seen Chubby play so well with another dog, he was sooo happy. At the end of our playdate, Chandra pulled out a Lamb Chop squeaky toy for Chubs and a bottle of champagne for me as a thank you for leading her to Hami. It was so nice of her. Thanks for such a great time you two - we’ll have to arrange for another playdate when the weather improves!
