Meet Hamilton. He’s nowhere near as serious as he looks!
This dashing fellow answers to Hammy, Ham, Hambone, Ham and Cheese … it’s only Hamilton when he’s in trouble.
(And Corgis never get into trouble, now do they?)
Hammy makes the occasional guest appearance on his Mom’s blog Elle’s New England Kitchen, among the many fabulous recipes and photos of dangerously mouthwatering meals.
“We got Hammy about six years ago when he was four months old” writes Elle. “He’s a huge, snuggly, hairy bozo. With a personality complex.”
“You may call me Sir Hamilton.”
“Your Highness Hamilton.”
“Colonel Hamilton” …
Though I prefer “Admiral Hamilton.”
“We got Phoebe (Pheebs) a few months later. She was just a baby and Hammy was smitten. He did all of his best tricks to show off, but she wasn’t impressed.”
She was also immediately in charge of him and his life!
“A couple of years later, we let them have puppies. Just the one time, though. Phoebe had six and we kept two girls — Roxy and Tolee (sounds like Toe-lee).”
“They like to beat the crap out of each other, then take long naps together.”
“It’s noisy with four Corgis, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. They’re good, sweet little dogs and they love everyone.”
Corgi On kiddos!

Thank you so much for featuring my herd, Laurie! Speaking of beating the crap out of each other, they had a little Battle Corgi in the dining room just a short while ago. Now they're all sleeping. 😉

LOVE seeing this sweet Corgi family! <3 What personalities!! Enjoyed hearing how y'all came to be their humans! Lucky you, lucky them! ….and the nicknames!!! Will NOT be letting Jack hear the word Admiral!
Beautiful Corgis Elle!
"It's noisy with four corgis…" I think that is probably an understatement!!! I sometimes want to wear ear plugs with two corgis! What a great gang, love their tales. Thanks for sharing your life with corgis.
