We smile at these slogans, but...
We are owned by a 40 pound Cardigan Corgi. She is VERY protective of our house and her humans. She responds to voice commands to back off, but I would not want to be the person to attack my wife or I while she is around. Don't underestimate the ferocity of the corgi. The Cardi is totally fearless and not intimidated by large animals (two or four legged)., They are almost all alpha personalities and have been bred to herd some of the meanest evil tempered cattle in the world. A mere mugger is light work before a morning snack. They are literally a big dog in a small body. Don't try to convince them otherwise. Happy Thanksgiving to all the corgis and their "humans".
That's why I have a sign on my door that says... "beware, guard Welsh Corgi on duty", of course with mine they're more apt to LICK the intruder to death.
Heh heh! Cassie is trained to get a pillowcase, help the Burglar load the silverware into it, and carry it out to his car.
"...only a dog".
corgi survives avalanche burial
A couple years ago at Snoqualmie Pass near Seattle -- a day I remember, very high avy danger -- an unwitting solo hiker got himself buried in an avalanche in the most notorious spot around here. This is invariably a fatal situation, but there must have been an air pocket, and somehow he was able to reach his cell phone and call for his own rescue. Search and Rescue, bless them, promptly got him out unhurt. As I heard it, an avalanchde rescue dog featured prominently, locating him almost immediately.
