I'm a twenty-one-year old animal enthusiast. I have done a lot of rescue work with domestic animal rescue groups and I'm also a wildlife rehabilitator who specializes in birds. I'm an Animal Science major and hoping to be a veterinarian.
I'm also a big anime fan and upon seeing Cowboy Bebop about ten years ago I decided I wanted to get a corgi someday! I thought it would be off in the distant future, but after one of our rescue dogs passed away I happened across a corgi in a shelter by chance and things just fell together! Now I have two of them, both rescues and both adopted recently. :)
In addition to my corgis, I also have a border collie, three cats, a horse, two cockatiels, two lovebirds, two parrotlets, twenty-five chickens, three ducks, three guinea fowl, and five fish.
Hooch is a tricolor Pembroke welsh corgi who was rescued from a puppy mill. As a result of his origins, he's a bit shorter and stockier than the usual corgi, but he's downright adorable and hilarious! He loves to play fetch, run around the yard with our border collie, give kisses, wiggle at the slightest things, and snuggle. He's very sweet, loves people, and never fails to make us laugh with his big personality.
Honey is a beautiful red Pembroke welsh corgi who we got out of a shelter. It's a long, rather odd story how we ended up with her, but that's for another time. Honey is my constant companion, and she loves to have her belly rubbed. She has a funny habit of howling when she wants people to pay attention to her and she'll take any opportunity she can to huddle up to the people she loves. She and Hooch both sleep on my bed with me at night, with Honey right next to me and Hooch at my feet. She's a fast learner and very smart and personable!
yeah, that would be fun, and the pictures would be cute! i got Sadie from a breeder in Missouri. she will be two in january, but she seems really small for a corgi. she is only around 20-22lbs (depending on the month, haha). i think she looks smaller because she has such a small face, but who knows!
Thanks, he is at least half Corgi and half spoiled rotten. No, just kidding he is 100% spoiled rotten! LOL The vet suggested that may be part Chow because he has some black on his tongue but I just don't see any thing about him that looks Chowish. I am thinking that he may be a Cardi/Pembroke mix. His little legs/boots are the brinnel color you often see on Cardigans. Although, his ears are small for a Cardi, his body size and shape are about right.
I always menat to mention to you that I am a former wildlife biologist and have spent years doing rehab with Raptors. No longer work as a biologist, but still volunteer doing Raptor rehab when time allows. Hope all is going well with school.
Thanks for your comments about Poppit. Your Cockateil must be named Lucky! It is so amazing how they just get on with life. No self pity... just figuring out what the next fun adventure should be. Sounds like your "zoo" is just about as diverse as ours. Thank goodness for country life!
