(Cute overload, people. Seriously.)
As a young pup, Radar was skittish and quite afraid of almost everything except people and other dogs. He disliked walks, with that pesky shadow following him everywhere, and was having none of that doggie-door business. His folks have helped him adjust to the big, wide world by exposing him to different things. Though he is by now a relatively well-adjusted pupper, occasionally something random and seemingly silly scares him to bits.
(To be fair, there aren’t many dogs who love bathtime.)
In light of this, I think we can consider Radar a courageous dog. A vigilant, noble, canine version of a superhero with (sometimes) wobbly knees. He has overcome a lot!
Radar is a complete natural with kids and particularly likes infants. When the new baby comes home from the hospital, no doubt Radar will be at the door with his back end wiggling, ears laid low. Ready for a thorough inspection and bestowal of the first Corgi kisses.
A kid of his very own. Wahoo! Great day in the mornin’!
Radar’s a well-rounded Corgi with varied interests: chewing (rawhide, his Mom’s watercolor paper), chasing (both chasing and being chased), chasing himself in a circle (an entirely separate category), rides in the car, hopping like a bunny, and — yes — walks!
And naps. Nappage is important.
No word on whether he’s a real moocher, but he does have a soft spot for carrots, cheese and broccoli. * * * *
