Meet Alfie. Alfie loves pancakes.
I smell IHOP. Did somebody spell I-H-O-P?!
His Mom Jennifer says Alfie seems to have a preference for tacos, too. “Sometimes, when I’m feeling particularly indecisive about dinner, I’ll ask him: “Tacos or pizza?”
He’ll bark enthusiastically after “tacos” …
… but never after “pizza”.
“Alfie loves ice cubes during the Summer. For chicken jerky he’ll roll over or “sit pretty”.
(Ahh yes, Corgis and their food … the never ending story!)
“I wasn’t looking for a dog when I found him, but I couldn’t resist the photo of the adorable Corgis in the paper. The next day I came home with Alfie, who joined the family with a bang, or rather a leak, as he had an accident on the way to his new home.”
This two year-old bundle of energy loves to play with his Pomeranian friends next door. “He has two favourite toys, a green, pink and red dog named Chompy McTeethy and Pink Doggie, though he really loves playing with my toes and chasing my feet. Alfie even comes camping with me at SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism, a Renaissance re-enactment group) events.”
“In recent months, two new Pomeranians have joined the pack, and they’re both tiny things. The smallest one, Candy, follows Alfie around constantly and is his little best friend. He’s probably seven times heavier than her, but he plays so gently — even when he’s frapping.”
“He’s started a tradition around our house: everytime a new puppy comes home, they fall in the pond and I have to fish them out. It’s only a small pond and my gran and I don’t let the puppies out unless one of us is watching them, so there’s no danger. Whether they were just trying to get a drink and mis-judged their footing or they were pretending to be mountain goats on the rocks around the pond, one of them always falls in. Once, Alfie managed to shove Binky (one of the Pomeranians) in the pond while they were playing.”
“One of Alfie’s photos is now featured on a postcard on sale in the Netherlands. The text on the image roughly translates as “This year, put your nose on the spot and repeat these words: I am not old, I am not old, I am not old”. Out of all of the photos I’ve uploaded to various stock photography sites, his photos are the most popular.”
“Sometimes I call him ‘The Shinless Wonder’ and whenever people ask why he’s so short, I tell them “He lost his shins in the war.” So far, only one person got the King of the Hill reference.”
“What I lack in shins I make up for in Corgi-liciousness.”
