She never gets a "doggy" smell, unless she steps or rolls in something horrible. She always smells so good, just like she did when she was a puppy. I remember when we first got her and I would just bury my nose in her fur and rue the future in which she wouldn't smell like puppy heaven, but she still does. I also love her absolute zest for life, whether it's taking a long stroll around the neighborhood, fetching, playing with other doggies at the puppy park, or excelling at obedience. She is always up to the challenge and never gives me a "not again look". It's always "let's go!". During the last leg of a long walk when I'm tired, I just look down at this happily trotting, wiggling little sweetie who looks up at me with the classic bright-eyed corgi expression, and I'm good to go for another mile. I love that in the morning, she will crawl up on the bed next to me and cuddle, and the minute I sit up she'll bring a ball for me to throw. She makes me wonder if I would want to own any other breed besides a corgi. She makes me smile, and helps me feel like I can tackle anything that my day will throw at me.
