I have always wanted a Pembroke Corgi after seeing Ein for the first time on the anime Cowboy Bebop. There's just something about there short little legs and fox like face! Plus, they're very smart dogs and are quiet active.
Of course, buying a pup can be expensive. Not to mention the whole puppy-phase is a bit time consuming and can be messy. So my parents decided not to go that route, but if there was every a Corgi up for adoption we would consider it.
One Saturday while my parents were at our local Hastings looking for a movie to buy, they saw ARFnets was set up in the children's section with numerous dogs and cats being shown. My mother hates going near animals up for adoption. Not because she doesn't like animals, but because she always wants to take every single on of them home!
As she was leaving the are however, she caught in the corner of her eye a different dog. A shorter one. She asked one of the ladys at the register if it was a Corgi. the lady told her, "Oh yes, she's a pure breed Pembroke Welsh."
To make this long story short, she told me about Sally and that was that. We called Sue, a lady who fosters local rescued dogs, and told her our interest in Sally. She brought her over last Wednesday afternoon to see how she would take to the house. Sally loves it here and took to us right away! We also have a Birman, male cat who is a bit selfish and territorial, but even he seems to tolerate her.
We've only had her a few days, but I'm sure there will be tons more pictures and even videos to come!
