So, today at work, I was sitting there, eating lunch in the break room and my boyfriend's mom comes in and goes "You wanna see some Corgis?" (she knows I'm obsessed with them, and that I only have ever seen Ziggy). Of course, I jumped up (and very noisly almost dropped my tray in my excitement) and followed her to a resident's room, where I met a RHT fluffy Pembroke named Nickers and a brindle Cardigan named Poppy. They were SO cute.
True to Pembroke nature, Nickers was all over me, in my lap, giving me kisses. Poppy stayed back for the most part, approaching me cautiously every so often. She was gorgeous. Her tail was a lot shorter than I thought a Cardi's would be, but maybe that was just her.
Anyhoo, I spent about twenty minutes on the floor loving on them before my lunch break was up... Getting back to work, I made sure the first room I cleaned was the one directly across from them, where I made cooing and smoochie noises at them until I could no longer stretch it out... That was the only section during the whole day that I actually was awake for LOL. I zombied through the rest (I got to bed later than I should have, lesson learned).
It was TOTALLY awesome. After meeting Poppy, I'm very much in love with the Cardigan look... I liked her personality too, seemed like it would suit Ziggy well.. But I also loved Nickers' friendly upbeat fearlessness. They were both five like Ziggy, and Nickers was a rescue too :) It made my day!
