Look at these sweet looking girls. They need homes.Barbie, the first dog, was in a shelter that was gonna euthanize her because she was such a fearful dog until she was pulled and given another…Continue
"Not true. Just because she's a runt doesn't mean she is taking longer to potty train in the peeing department than a puppy that was not a runt. Some dogs just take longer to potty train.
Chucky was totally NOT the runt of the litter and he…"
"He could be chewing because he's bored. Smart dogs can become destructive when their brains are not properly stimulated and they have to find their own ways of entertaining themselves. Unfortunately, that's how they entertain…"
"Yeah....this is the reason why a lot of dogs end up at the pound.
People see you with your well-behaved dog and think that 'Wow! These dogs are so nice and well-behaved! I should get a dog of that breed' or whatever.
When in reality, they…"
"I finally signed up for it last year after considering how much money I could save if I'm able to test-try the treats with Chucky to see if he likes it first before I would consider buying a specific brand of treats.
We all know how expensive…"
"I wasn't impressed with the furminator too. Fortunately, I got it on amazon for $15. Could've probably got it for cheaper but, I feel safer shopping with amazon and they had the (at that time) if you purchase up to $25, shipping is free.…"
We have a new addition to the family! Now, it's Chucky and Freddy!
Well, Freddy WAS supposed to be mine. My older sister borrowed me the money to purchase him and now she won't take the money. She wants to keep Freddy |T_T|.
I told her that it didn't matter. We live together and she will see Freddy regardless of whether he's mine or hers. She didn't see it from my point of view....oh well.
Freddy is the complete opposite of Chucky. Right from the moment he got home, he adored my sister and I. There was no transition period where he needed time to get used to his new environment. It was as if he was always a part of our household.
He is tiny for a male corgi. He is also the runt of his litter so, I guess that factors into his size also.
He's super affectionate with humans. He likes to be held in the lap, loves to give kisses, he has a dark, empty, bottomless pit as a stomach (how fast he eats and how much he can eat puts Chucky to shame!), and is a barker.
He also ADORES and WORSHIPS Chucky! Chucky doesn't return his feelings though! He'll follow Chucky around, mimic what Chucky does, wants to go on walks with Chucky, if Chucky doesn't go he doesn't want to go, wants whatever Chucky has whether it be a toy or bully stick, and tries to cuddle with Chucky, which Chucky refuses to let him do.
Sooooooo, his solution is, he tries to position himself as close to Chucky as possible, with his face facing towards Chucky so he can keep an eye on Chucky at the same time, and sleep there in that position.
Chucky likes to pretend that Freddy doesn't really exist most of the time. Which is surprising, since Freddy has been part of the household since the end of October and you would've thought he'd be accepting of him by now.
Freddy is like the baby brother he never wanted.
Chucky is the polar opposite of Freddy.
Chucky would not be a good doggy candidate for people who wants the cuddles, kisses, hugs, or a lot of contact.
His interest in human contact/association is almost none. It makes him harder to train because he's not interested in pleasing the humans.
He could care less if you're happy with him for doing something that pleases you or he could care less if you're upset at him for doing something naughty. He just swaggers away, his butt swaying from left to right, without a care in the world about your feelings.
I can count on one hand the number of humans he would run up to greet and BE happy to see. This fact does make it easier to walk him off-leash because he will not run up to people so, I don't have the fear of people kicking him or hurting him for going near them. Although there are other dangers to him being off-leash, I can at least eliminate the human danger.
I have to say though, that my relationship with Chucky runs deep
Thanks for the add! I tend to get bored at work so that's when I do all my puppy researching LOL. My family thinks I'm crazy because I'm preparing so much! But it's something fun to do while I wait for my pup to come home! :)
