Back in January, Carol Flynn and her family bid farewell to their beloved Roper, whose “alpha dog” shoes were so big that it’s taken two puppies to fill them!
Today The Daily Corgi is pleased to share Bonnie and Clyde with Corgi Nation.
“Clyde Barrows Flynn the Furst arrived in February and won us all over. We went to great extremes to not pick a male pup that looked too too much like Roper, but by gosh he looks like him after all! But they are related.”
“He was quite smart and so trained, just rang a bell on back door to go potty. When he played real hard and forgot, he’d run to a puppy pad that I never even showed him! He slept with us and still does — and we couldn’t be happier. I’m sure Roper arranged all of this and is smiling at us.”
“Bonnie Sue Parker entered our world in March. We do believe Roper sent her to us.”
“She’s the foxy one. If you don’t see her and all is quiet, you must go see what she’s found.”
“She won’t be ignored, either!”
“She’s now graduated from eating the cabin walls to my shoes. She must think “no no puppy” is her middle name.”
“Bonnie loves to be held like a baby and have her tummy rubbed. She’s a little beaver, and Sweetums to Curt.”
“Our girl has the best ahrooo, a deep bark, and a chortle like talk to get our attention.”
“Bonnie is da boss. She determines which bowl of food will be hers and which one will be Clyde’s before he approaches it.”
“He bows to the queen! His voice hasn’t changed yet, and he can whine in a cringe-inducing way. Clyde’s bark is strictly his own.”
“He’s Mr. Sensitive … a sweet boy.”
(Ed. note: THAT is my dream Corgi :-).
“He’ll rush over barking to meet someone, stop a few feet from them and cautiously eye them up. If that person shows any aggression, he runs back to me.”
“Clyde isn’t fond of long walks here in Florida, but he’ll jump into the pool with us and paddle around. He loves the toy baskets and can unload them in a minute. He’ll look you right in the eye wanting to read your mind, and he cuddles up at night.”
“These two are truly our babies, and much of our lives revolve around them. Being retired, we enjoy every moment. Losing dear Roper has made us appreciate their individual personalities and puppy tricks. They are a part of our every day.”
“Bonnie and Clyde are so loved, and both love us. All is wonderful. Roper is smiling …
