I mentioned this in another post, and am curious about people's experiences.
Jack (as I've mentioned) is our 2.5 year old male Corgi who we've had since a pup.
From the time he was just a little guy, if you yell "Ow!' (say you stub your toe, or clunk your head), Jack comes running and tries to jump up and lick you. And if Madison, our other dog, reverse sneezes, Jack comes running over to check it out and looks very upset.
Maddie is nearly five and has only been here just over a month, so admittedly she's probably not as bonded to us yet. Well, if someone hurts himself, Maddie... could care less. For example:
The other day I was upstairs and my husband banged his knee into the corner of the cabinet. Well, you know how much that hurts. I went trotting downstairs to see what was up, and there is Jack, hovering around him, asking if he can get anything (maybe some ice, or a Band-aid?), or help out in any way. Worried look, furrowed brow, all out of sorts till I finally said "Shawn, please let the dog know you're ok!"
And Maddie? Was lying in her crate, thinking maybe someone would come around and give her a treat later.
The funny thing is, Maddie is the lap dog/cuddler and Jack is the one who doesn't usually like to be petted. Moreover, I was always under the impression (apparently wrong) that the females are more sensitive.
Just wonder what other people's Corgis are like.
Jack would definitely try to pull Timmy out of the well, then bring him tea and cookies and a nice comfy blanket.
Maddie? Not so much.
