Seven month-old William lives in Richmond, Rhode Island his Mom and Dad Gail and Andy, an elderly Cocker Spaniel aunt, and two kitty uncles.
At first, his furry housemates were none too crazy about such a high energy newcomer. Reflecting on his earliest months, Gail says “William was a bundle of energy and kept me on my toes, but he is my little sunshine.”
“William wants to be where we are all the time and will follow his Dad all over the yard as he does his gardening.”
On a break from his “helper” duties.
“William loves to go with us on weekends to our lakeside campground site, where he charms all our friends … ”
… and makes plenty of his own!”
At a camp doggy birthday party … nice hat ;-).
Dad started William early on swimming lessons.
It ain’t easy being a little pup in a big pond. Or lake.
“William has had a great first summer at the lake. He dressed up for their annual Halloween party a few nights ago, but he wasn’t too crazy about his lobster costume.”
It was a bit humiliating in front of his friends!
“He’s become quite the “teenager” and will be reuniting with his siblings for a puppy reunion soon. Should be full of Corgi energy! William still misses his Cocker Spaniel auntie who passed in June, but has finally made friends with with his kitty uncles. He wants them to play Corgi tag with him (“I’ll chase you then you chase me”) but they just don’t understand the game.”
“He’s definitely a smart little guy and has learned several tricks and commands he’ll do for a cookie. Sit, down, roll over and bang! (he flops on his back as if he were in the movies with his feet in the air). He loves to terrorize the goldfish in the outside fish pond and will spend the longest time just running around the pond barking at them until he inevitably falls in. William hates the water, even rain, and will run around the yard rolling and barking to get the evil stuff off of him.”
“Even though he has many toys he chews to oblivion, William’s best toy is an empty milk jug or a Maxwell House plastic coffee container. He loves to growl and push them around with his shoulder — sounds so menacing! He also enjoys herding large plastic balls, but they don’t last long.”
All that activity poops a pup out!
