The other day, my husband and I were trying to train KC to "Help me!". So Brian wrestled me to the ground while I yelled "KC help!" (through my stifled giggles). She just sat there and silently watched. I was hoping that she'd at least run around and bark at Brian to let me go. Good to know that if I ever get attacked by someone, KC will be a good witness.
Now my husband is away for a few days, which makes me uneasy being by myself at night. It doesn't help that KC keeps looking into dark rooms like she's looking at something/someone. Freaking me out! I'll look down at her and whisper "What is it KC??" aaaand Nothing. She might just be looking for Brian to pop out of somewhere, but still. It's not very reassuring to me. If someone broke in, she'd probably run over, say hi and request tummy rubs.

Comment by Potus on October 17, 2009 at 5:25am
I have faith in Potus. His bark alone is enough to scare people. We had a lady come to our door a couple of months ago selling something and Potus was barking his head off as he usually does when he hears anyone open the gate. I was opening the door and saw the girl looking nervous, she kind of stood still for a second and I knew she was debating whether or not to leave. She couldn't see Po so thought he was some big angry dog that was going to rip her to shreds. Once the door was open and she could see that behind the screen door was just a small Corgi she was fine. Nice to know Po can scare people though!!

He's also shown his protective side- twice he's growled at men- once an old guy who walked past us who turned out to be perfectly nice but also a bit 'odd' and once when a guy came out of his house and walked out of his driveway just as we reached the same spot. Po must have thought he was coming for us and I had to pull him away.

Still, in his old age (his almost 1, lol) he's becoming a bit slack in his guard dog duties. A couple of times he's not so much as raised his head when my brothers come home. Maybe he just knows its him.

Seriously, though, we don't know what they'll do til we are in a situation, and hopefully we never find ourselves needing our dogs to bail us out! But Jack and Maddie's breeder told me that she was at a show with one of her young males, and someone's Chow got loose or something and charged her, and her male Corgi latched on to the Chow's throat and would not let go til the Chow's owner came around and gathered her dog.... One would not think a Corgi would take on a full-grown Chow in defense of its owner, but there you go.

I always tell people that mine are Watch Dogs because they watch anything. Our dobe is the Guard Dog.

Ha ha! Finnigan's first day home (8 weeks old) my Mom was dieing to see him so she came over with her Cardi Quinn. As soon as they walked through the door, this little puppy got up and walked towards Quinn barking. That was the first time I heard him bark and it was the cutest thing!

Maddie might say "harf!" a few dramatic times but I would be surprised if she would follow through.

Jack would knock off an intruder, disarm him, cuff him, call 911, and then help identify the guy in a police linup. LOL

We had to leash Jack from the time he was about 11 weeks old because if he was outside at night and heard a noise in the bushes.... he'd run towards it, barking and/or puppy growling. The first day we brought him home, instead of hiding behind my legs, he went to march up the street to check it out.

She probably did know you were not really in trouble. My husband and I have done that before too and Finn thought it was a game. My husband even yelled then lay down on the floor in another room and Finnigan went in to him and climbed onto his back and lay down. He must have figured, why let a perfectly good body go to waist when I can use it as a pillow?

Any other time, when he hears noises outside he will bark and growl. The other day he did something that I’ve never seen him do before. I was walking him so he could go potty and it was about 6pm. A man was walking behind us that gave me weird feeling so I picked up the pace but when Finn stopped to sniff the grass the guy called out and asked if he could pet my dog. I said yes and the guy quickly touched Finn's head then stood there talking to me. He looked like bad news and was making odd comments about steeling from work, wanting to borrow my dog some time and then asked if he could walk with us. I said no because we weren’t going for a walk, I was just letting him go the bathroom. At this point Finnigan was standing right at my side with his head low growling. The guy looked at him and reached down to pet him and Finn got really low to the ground with his ears back and continued to growl. He's never acted that way with anybody so I knew he must be picking up on something and we parted ways with him as fast as possible. I told Finn he was such a good boy. I really hope if the guy would have tried anything he would have bit him, but I have a feeling he would have been scared himself.

She knew you were kidding! I can not believe a corgi would not raise a ruckus (possibly from under the bed) if some one actually tried to get in the house.
Comment by Amanda on October 16, 2009 at 3:39pm
Ha. I feel your pain. I always hate being here by myself at night. I think it's actually worse now that I have Dax, because he'll just, from a dead sleep, launch himself off of the couch barking and howling and freaking out and I'm just looking around like...okay...I didn't even hear anything! He makes me paranoid because he barks/growls randomly. I've learned his barks though. A woof/low growl means he thinks he heard something. A bark/growl/run to the door means he DID hear something, but it was probably just a random noise. A launch off, full out barking/howling/growling, running from door to door not shutting up means someone is actually here. Or...someone walked by the house.

He loves to just sit on the edge of the couch and very intently watch the door. I think he just wants to believe he sees/hears something. Lol.

I feel your unease LOL 1 night I left the fan above the stove on and it rattles a little when I went to bed the dogs started barking and ruffing every time it rattled so finally after telling them quiet a few times I said allright lets go get the bad sound so I get out off bed and make 1/2 down the hall before I relized I was all by myself when I turned around my protecters where standing in the bedroom doorway watching me!!!! and no amount of coaxing could get them to come with me so I made the big bad sound go away all by myself but they were happy when I made it back to the bedroom alive =)

Maybe she just didn't do anything because it was your husband and she knew that he really wasn't going to hurt you. I'm sure if it was a stranger it would be completely different.
