hey all. i was just wondering if your corgis play the "guard dog" role. ever since we moved into our house (from an apt) ein has been the quintessential guard dog. in fact, he thinks he's a rottweiler. i'll play around with him and ask if he's a rotty and he starts "play barking and whimpering." so we're in agreement that yes, he is in fact a rottweiler. when the door bell rings he instantly starts barking and trots to the door. his bark is much deeper and more scary sounding. sometimes when the door bell rings and he's caught off guard (we're napping) his bark even scares me! who would have thought that this little dog could have such a monster bark. my dad visited the other day and he me that ein doesn't even sound like a corgi but more like a doberman :) he doesn't ever charge the door or scratch, he just barks. if we tell him to cool out, he always stops :) the ups man came and rang the door bell. he heard ein and left the package at the door. i guess he didn't want to stick around for me to sign. lol. i think its great because he makes me feel safer (especially at night if my hubby isn't around). i rest easy when ein's on the job.
