well good to know I'm not the only one who is allowed to sleep on 1/3 of a king-sized bed...
sigh... I wouldn't have it any other way!
Just a sample of the interactive toys I have bought to keep Franklin happy. I too am absolutely obsessed and infatuated with my corgi! The fact that his happiness is top on my list (often above mine!) is pretty "extreme" to me. I won't even move him when he is laying in my spot on the bed.....I'll end up squished in the corner as long as he is happy lol.
yes its completely normal:) i cant begin to tell u how spoiled rotten and loved teddy is. every time i get paid, or the hubby, we go out and see what we can buy for my handsome teddy. he has so many toys to play with, the best food, he gets to go to the lake and the dog park at least 3 times a weeks along with two walks a day. he has three plush comforters for his crate and has other two beds. one next to my side of the bed and one so he can look out the french door and lay in the sun beam after his walks.
for his meals i always add something to his food so he has something different every night. also, i dont usually walk him on a collar because i tend to put my self in his shoes and wonder if his collar isnt comfortable so i bought him mesh harnesses so he could be more comfortable on his walks (silly i know)
this corgi is really my fur kid. i love him so much that i dont know what i would do if anything ever happened to him. i miss him while i am at work and cant wait to come home to see the little guy. we have such a wonderful bond that i can always just tell how he is feeling.
and at night when my husband and i are resting on the couch after a long day we let teddy up and he snuggles up to him for a few but then "asks" to lay on my chest so i can pet him until he finally falls asleep :)
I'll post a photo of my Buckingham Palace replica doghouse as soon as it's finished.
But beware of anthropomorphizing your dog. Toys and treats are fine, but what your dog probably wants most from you -- after food -- is your time and attention. Before you buy a new dog toy, throw the old ball. Go out and spend some time sniffing something disgusting. Together.
