Meet Walnut – the newest nut on his family’s tree.
This bundle of Cardigan Cute Stuff is smart, fearless, intrepid, bossy and funny. “Just like any other Corgi, but in a smaller package” muses Mom Linda.
“His older packmate Maple was the only one who didn’t warm to him instantly. It’s taken longer for her, but Walnut had no fear that she would be mutually infatuated in short order.”
“As soon as she stopped growling whenever he came close, he started sneaking onto her bed. If she was sleepy enough, Walnut would crawl closer, until eventually he was cuddled right next to her.”
“They now wrestle, chase birds together, and she is “teacher’s aid” in his training sessions, because of course there are treats.”
“Ideally a new dog will meet 100 dogs in 100 days; in our neighborhood full of toddlers, dogs and parks galore, rain or shine, this is no problem. Walnut’s new pack includes Havanese, Portuguese Podengos and some very cute rescue mixes. One of his favorite outings so far was to the Corgi meetup where there were 4 other puppies to chase non-stop.”
“He is now a giant four months old, goes to the dog park with his big sis, plays hard, tries to decapitate every toy on the living room floor and happily collapses on anyone’s feet when he needs a break.”
“Walnut delights in going to our local feed store and manages to corral as many treats as he can from the lower shelves for himself and Maple. Fortunately the owners also have OCD — Obsessive Corgi Disease — and don’t make us buy all of his selections.”
“We enjoy tiring him out because he has a high energy level. There’s nothing better than to see him splat in the mudroom after a long walk. Walnut is a pro at front and back splats and sometimes falls asleep before we can even towel him off.”
Looks like true love to me!
