Heather Michelle M. of (greater) Cincinnati, Ohio wrote to The Daily Corgi back in April about her woof-tastic Cardigans Cocoa and Carmel. Not only did she write, she sent a whole big bunch of pictures … when you see them, you’ll know why!
“Carmel is our four year-old male sable Cardigan. We got him from the local shelter at around seven months of age.”
“About a year later, we got Cocoa from a breeder. She’s a three year-old black and white female Cardigan. She had huge ears as a puppy.”
“Cocoa fit right into the family.”
Right from the start!
“She was already playing tug on the first evening with her buddy Carmel.”
Cool new toy Mom, but when do her batteries run out?
“Carmel loves rubs, wrestling with Cocoa, and making everyone laugh.”
“He also enjoys making yodel noises in the morning when he’s hungry, scouring for food, and playing tug.”
“Carmel can usually be found either waiting for his humans near the hot tub, in the kitchen or in their bed … “
” … unless of course there’s a thunderstorm, in which case, you’ll find him in the guest bathtub (aka Corgi fallout shelter).”
Don’t believe them, I’m not afraid of anything!
Nappin’ and frappin’!
“In the Summer, you’ll find her laying completely flat on the A/C vents to keep cool, usually with her jowls making a ‘puff’ noise on the hardwood floor when she’s too lazy to pant. She also loves ice cubes and will go ‘bobbing’ for them to cool off.”
Another baby picture. Resistance is futile!
“Cocoa is definitely a protector of the house and yard. She loves to sit right at the floor length front window and check out the neighborhood, or to scope out the perimeter of back yard to scare off evil birds and squirrels.”
“Cocoa seems to be the more athletic of the two, but they are both very content to wrestle and run, as well as be couch potatoes. Carmel is probably the brains, as he’s had formal training and learns very quickly (especially when food is involved). Both are very well-behaved and know many commands and words. For example, even at night when they are playing with a squeaky toy or a bone, they understand that “nighty-night” means it’s time to sleep or take it out into the hallway.”
