So I have momentarily become a 2 Corgi household after a neighbour turned up on my doorstep with a stray Corgi she found. Seems as if my house has become 'the Corgi house' in the neighbourhood. It was a smart move on her part- I do tend to 'note' the Corgis in the area, as Corgi owners do.


This Corgi seems to be a bit older than Potus. It (I haven't checked to see if its a boy or a girl) has a docked tail which, as docking is illegal here, suggests it must be 5 or over, and its in a bit of a poor condition. It has a collar, but no ID tags. The fur around its collar is short- looks worn down, and its nose looks scratched up. I'm not sure if its been running loose for awhile but it looks like it. The RSPCA is closed until 10am and animal control told us we had to call them so, as the lady who found it has to go to work, we took it in. I have had to put it outside in Potus' old exercise pen as its not very clean and I don't want to have it in the house (I feel so bad leaving it outside as its a bit cold- thank god for Corgi's double coats- but I don't want to have to clean everything in the house if it does happen to have fleas or something else causing its fur condition, plus its dirtiness- I'd give it a bath if I could). I've fed it, given it Potus's spare water bowl, and put some towels down. Potus has been whining his head off as he wants to go outside to see it but he scares the poor thing with his bounding and pushing the exercise pen walls. So he's stuck inside. My Mum drove around the neighbourhood to see if anybody was searching for a dog, but found no one. We've left word at the local milk bar, and rang the local radio station, plus I've put a post up on a local buy/sell group on Facebook in case someone knows who's missing a docked Corgi (they're not that common here). Now I just have to wait until the RSPCA opens at 10am. I wish time would hurry up as I want the poor thing to be in a nice warm place, and to be checked out.


Fingers crossed its owner comes forward.

So an update, the lady from animal control who picked him up called this afternoon to let me know he had been picked up by his owner- an elderly gentleman. He was registered but just didn't have his tags on. I can sleep happy knowing he has gone home safe and sound.

Fingers, paws, feathers, and scales all crossed.
