I’m Hannah Schmidt and I was on the Daily Corgi back in December, when I was still available for adoption. I’m happy to announce that I found the best home and parents a Corgi could possibly hope for. I was adopted by my Mom and Dad (John and Jennine) in April, 2012. It was close to my Mom’s birthday, so I guess I was kind of like a birthday present.
I’m having great fun with my new family. I have lots of playtime AND my very own toy box. Even though I have plenty of toys, I still explore other things and often chew on them. My favorite “forbidden” chew is the remote control. I think my Mom has had to replace eight remotes so far, but she’s stopped counting – thank doGness. I’m trying really hard to get my chewing under control. Mom and Dad have faith that someday I’ll learn that not everything is meant to go in my mouth.
Mom and Dad say one of the things they like most about me is my beautiful smile. I smile at everyone and they usually say I’m adorable, which is true. I love to snuggle, especially at night, but then I fall asleep on my back and legs are up in the air. My Dad says I don’t look comfortable, but I am. Really! My Dad said it’s a good thing we have a king size bed since all of us like to sprawl out. I do have my own bed, but one day I got curious as to what was inside of it and ate a hole to discover there is foam inside! It didn’t taste very good and was soooo not worth it. I’m glad my folks understand my curious mind. I like knowing how things work (and taste). I adore being in the car and going for rides, chasing squirrels in the backyard and running after the tennis ball. Sometimes I get so tired that I take a nap on the deck. Mom says I’m so peaceful when I sleep.
I enjoy it when we have company at our house. I give everyone a warm welcome. Sometimes I go overboard and get too excited, but I can’t help myself. I enjoy people and the attention they give me.
I’m not so fond of other dogs, but I’m learning to get along. When Mom and Dad went out of town I had a sleepover at my foster Mom’s house (Aunt Nancy). It was a fun reunion with her and my cousins Nigel and Percy (fellow Corgis). I hope to visit with them again!
Sometimes when I’m at the groomer I have to let the other dogs know I’m the princess. I bark to tell them, but they don’t always like what I have to say. Even though I get an “A” on my report card, which I’m proud of, I can still do better. I just think playing is so much more fun than getting a bath or having my nails trimmed.
I’ll end here by saying life is very good and I’m enjoying every minute. I love my Mom and Dad and I know they love me.
Your furry friend,
