I had some extra time today so I walked Chubby over to his favorite park for a doggie meet up. When we were almost there a little boy with a backpack came up to me and asked, “Can I pet Chubby?” I was pretty surprised and started wondering how the boy knew his name (tumblr??), but then he said that he hadn’t seen Chubby at the park for a while and I realized he was one of the kids that liked to come and watch the dogs play.
On the way home we passed by another group of 4-5 kids who came over to pet him. They were super excited and huddled around him. I was a little nervous because Chubby hasn’t been around very many children, but he behaved really well. My theory is that he thinks he’s a tiny human so when he saw them he was like, “MY PEOPLE!!” When their parents called them to go, Chubby had to wait until all of them had passed him on the sidewalk and then began to trail behind them. The herding instinct is strong with this one.
The 5 Stages of Grief for a Corgi
1. Denial (4 minutes) - I WILL get the rest of this peanut butter out of the jar!!
2. Denial (another 4 minutes) - COMON TONGUE!!
3. Denial (2 minutes) - I CAN DO THIS!!!
4. Depression (2 seconds) - Why can’t I do this.
5. Acceptance (1 second) - Fine. New plan. Go get a spoon and get the rest out for me, hooman.
haukbern asked: Why are Corgis so amazing?
Hmm this is difficult, but I would have to say it comes down to their stumpy legs. Their disproportionate bodies make everything they do extremely comical. Ever seen the corgi flop video? IT IS THE GREATEST THING EVER
