...that Ruby is not a purebred corgi?
This morning when I took Ruby in to get her stitches out, I finally extracted a certificate of spaying from the vet's office -- they had my old address and had mailed a copy there. When I came to light long enough to scan it and send it to Lindsay, I noticed that they had described her as a "Corgi cross."
Called and said she's a purebred, and they said they'd send out another form. But...hm. It's easy to see why a person would think she's a mix. Her body looks corgi-like enough, but her face and especially her eyes do not, and even her pointy ears look a little off.
Her eyes look nothing like a corgi's: they're smaller and more almond-shaped than Cassie's. Also, she lacks that black "eyeliner" rim around her eyes that most corgi's have. Her ears are larger, rounder, and even more bat-like than Cassie's. Cassie, who I don't believe is a "fluffy," has a smooth but thick, lush coat; Ruby's coat is short and has no "mane" around the neck -- there's no way this pup could shed dog dunes on the floor. She kind of looks like a corgi with a basenji head.
