On the day Shannon F. went to pick out her Corgi, she says “three glorious tiny nine-pounders came to greet me, all jumping up, snuggling, and vying for attention.
“But aren’t there four?” I asked the breeder. She answered yes, and pointed across the yard at a little red and white stump of a creature, with a styrofoam coffee cup stuck on her head, snorting and running into things.”
Immediately, I said “I WANT THAT ONE!”
“My boyfriend wanted to name her something cute like Sprinkles, but I needed something cooler. We settled on Chai because her coloring was like a cup of strong, spicy chai tea, with a splash of cream. Her middle name, if you must know, is Sprinkles.”
“Like most Corgis, Chai is stubborn and cunning. To housetrain her, I started giving her treats after she went potty outside. In no more than two days, she’d devised a plan to fake potty to get a treat. She’d squat down and pretend to pee for a goodie!”
“After moving from an apartment to a house with a big yard, we decided to get Chai a baby brother. Like most baby brothers, Zevon is a pain in Chai’s corgipants. He’s needy and bouncy and annoys the fluff out of her.”
“It’s hilarious to watch. I think she secretly loves it.”
“Chai (a.k.a. LadyDump, Grumpster Dumpster, Pumpkin Pie, Stumps, Red Panda, Fat Fox, Chunk, Chai-Chai, Fluffernutter, and just Corg) dislikes garbage bags — or anything that settles or shifts on it’s own, Tabasco sauce, unsolicited belly rubbins, and things that beep.”
“Her likes include baby carrots, swimming, licking everything, running in gutters (or any groove), the “Chase Me!” game, tapping her foot and saying AARRRHHHWOOOO!, and watching MTV. She’s also narcissistic and would love to see herself on The Daily Corgi.”
“I hope you enjoyed meeting my little dumper. She’s hilarious and adorable, and she’s all mine!”
