Gideon means mighty warrior, and in typical Corgi fashion, 20 pound Gideon is a warrior in his own right. Don’t let the bow tie fool you.
The warrior in him shines through when he’s chasing squirrels, herding waves at the waterfront, or giving the back off bark to plastic grocery sacks. He has no idea he’s on the smaller side. Not only is three year-old Gideon brave, he’s clever enough to high-tail it out of the path of the bossy hens who share his backyard.
No intimidating HIM, no way! He’s smart … not a scaredy cat.
Gideon shows his softer side to his parents, with whom he’s talkative and cuddly. “Gid (aka Gid Master, Buddy, Potato Bug, Chubba Chubs and Munchkin) NEEDS to cuddle and gets grumpy if you’re not actively petting him” writes Haley. “He’s really talkative: barking, whining, woofing and honking.”
“Gideon is an experienced backpacking dog and bounds through snow deeper than his body.” (Looks pretty talented in the napping arts too). “What some call a Corgi’s “pants” my hubby and I call his “butt shrub”. I swear he shows it off sometimes!”
