Howdy, I’m Bella! Today I’m going to share the story of Dixie, me, and the backyard we share with 20,000 cows.
“Once upon a time our hu-Mom met her first Corgi, and it was love at first sight. She knew someday she’d have one of her own. She told her pals at the animal shelter in Casa Grande, Arizona to contact her if they ever got a Corgi in.”
“The fateful call came a few years later, in December of 2009. She headed down to the shelter, human kids in tow, to meet a female Corgi. With one confident lick of the toddler’s face, that clever girl won herself a rescue family. She had been abused (those days were over!), and because she squeaked like a cricket instead of barking, the family named her Cricket.”
“Cricket lived with them until she went to the Rainbow Bridge two years ago. Hu-Mom cried for days, beyond distraught. She found an ad for Corgi puppies in the local paper. I know, probably not the smartest thing, but she called the number anyway. She believes it was truly fate. The breeder arranged for them to meet at a park halfway between their homes. Somehow my Mom just knew I was going to belong to her, and on top of that she met a most wonderful person in my breeder … they keep in touch to this very day.”
“Because I am a very special Corgi (obviously), for my new hu-Mom it was love at first sight. Off I went, from a home with five Corgis, horses and little humans, to a dairy farm in Arizona. Yep, I have about 20,000 cows in my own backyard. Corgi paradise!”
“While I have four human siblings, I am definitely my hu-Mom’s favorite, BOL! I grew up going to sporting events, staying in my crate next to her as she kept score at baseball games, helping to cheer on the sidelines at football games. I love all my toys, especially balls, and am even faster than the girls on the high school softball team at retrieving the ball from the outfield.”
“I am the head of security and official ambassador to everyone when Mom takes me to work at our NAPA store in Maricopa.”
“Last year, my hu-sister decided she wanted a Corgi too. I was not allowed to vote. Mom went back to her breeder and brought home the monster, er, mighty mutt Dixie. While I am reserved and polite, Dixie is mouthy, needy, and chews up everything in sight. Sometimes I wonder why they keep her.”
“Dixie and I have the same dog Daddy, but my dog Mom is Biscuit, and her Mom is Gravy. They were out of the same litter, so we are as close to sisters as can be. Dixie picks on me all the time, but I suppose she can stick around.”
“We live a perfect Corgi life, traveling to the pine country in the Summer with our family, watching baseball games and helping out around the farm. July is a big month, as we harvest corn (the feed kind, not the people kind). Dixie and I supervise in the scale house, weighing the trucks as they come from the field.”
“Shortly after she found me, my hu-Mom found The Daily Corgi and joined the Corgi nation. We love sharing our daily lives with them. Thanks again to Laurie for her wonderful blog, and Corgi On!”
