Although he sports an attitude and believes he rules the roost, two year-old Spud is fantastically adorable and loving.
Oh yeah, that’s me …
… but it’s not my problem they don’t realize who’s boss.
Mom Cassie H. got Spud a few weeks before her biological Dad passed away. “I give Spud the majority of the credit for helping me get through an extremely hard time in my life. He didn’t feel the need to do anything but lay with me and let me cuddle with him and cry if I had to.”
“He wasn’t there to judge me or anything; he just knew I was sad and needed comforting.”
“Spud’s personality is unlike any dog I’ve ever had. He makes me laugh everyday, following me all over the house — even into the bathroom — and sitting next to the dryer while I do laundry.”
“He’s totally tuned into my feelings. If I’m laughing and happy he bounces all over the place, but when I’m sad and possibly crying, Spud’s the first one on my lap giving kisses, as if to say, ” it will be OK Mom, I still love you!” My little guy is amazing.”
“Soon after I got him, I met my boyfriend Devon. The first time I brought Devon home to meet my family, Spud just wouldn’t leave him alone. He was licking his face as if to say “Hey you! I’m the only one in this family you need to worry about impressing!”
The first meet: it’s meant to be!
“Spud now loves him nearly as much as he loves me, and he’s made fans of Devon’s parents too, who make sure he’s invited to anything we do at their house!”
“When Devon is on his way home at night, I tell Spud “Dad is on his way home buddy!”, which lights his spark. He starts running around, and when Devon’s truck pulls up he’s at the door barking and jumping. At night, Spud makes sure to sleep between us, cuddled up as close to Mom as he can be.”
“Everyone in my family loves Spud. He calls my Mom “Grammie” and my step dad is “Mr. Wilson” (from Dennis the Menace ;). We gave my Dad the nickname because that’s the kind of relationship he and Spud have.”
“No matter what Spud gets into, you know he’s got the best of intentions!”
“Here in our small town of Sutherland, lots of people know Spud from our walks and weekly trips in Summer to the local ice cream parlor. He’s a hit, and he knows it!”
“Spud has sooo many favorite foods. Popcorn and ice cubes are favorites. He’s not allowed to eat a lot of people food but somehow, someone always manages to slip him a piece of cheese or meat.”
“He’s probably eaten way too many things he shouldn’t have, but he seems to love it all.”
“If I’m not going to work, you can bet Spud’s in my passenger seat ready for our next adventure.”
“He adores his squeaky toys; anything that can make lots of noise while Mom and Dad are trying to watch a movie is perfect for him. He loves stuffed animals but isn’t allowed to have them because he shreds and scatters stuffing everywhere. Spud does have one toy he goes absolutely NUTS over: his frisbee. We have to call it the “F word”, otherwise he goes crazy and starts running around thinking he’s going to get to play with it.”
“Spud is a character, a complete joy and the light of my life, I really can’t picture my world without him, and couldnt ask for a better roomate, friend or cuddle partner!”

Welcome to The Daily Corgi, Spud!
You are all kinds of awesome!
Aww he's amazing! My little boy also got me through a really hard time and took to my new husband like they were long lost pals. Even though the stuffed toys are messy, the smiles are worth it. My Trotter lives to rip the stuffing out and I shove it all back in and sew them up again. Spud is so handsome!
