Those corgi's are soooooooo cute!! Oh lordy.. I love it. He might be part corgi. The legs look the same actually except charlie has short hair. The chest also sits low like Charlie. But I also think he is mixed with terrier. Charlie has a big head with a long face. It's hard to really see it in a picture but his head looks too large for his body. It is the head for a much larger dog or so it appears.
and Butter bean is very cute....... that's a great name!!
Charlie is very smart. He catches on quickly to things too.
I was looking at your dogs feet. charlie's feet turn out exactly like that. Does he look part corgi to you? He also has no tail. He was born that way. There is no nub there.
I found that poem that I was talking about, it is very sad though
A Dog sits Waiting
A dog sits waiting in the cold autumn sun.
Too faithful to leave, to frightened to run.
He's been here for days now with nothing to do.
But sit by the road waiting for you.
He can't understand why you left him that day.
He thought you and he were stopping to play.
He's sure you'll come back, and thats why he stays.
How long will he suffer? How many days?
His legs have grown weak, his throat is parched dry.
He's sick now from hunger and falls, with a sigh.
He lays down his head and closes his eyes.
I wish you could see how a waiting dog dies.
Oh God look at that sweet little face.
How on earth could someone throw him out like he was trash?
There has to be a special place in hell for the people...if you can call them that....who dumped him.
I know for sure that there's a special place in Heaven for people like you and your Husband.
You both should feel so good about yourselves for saving his life, because that's what you did.
That all sounds like a good idea - and makes sense, too. However, I'm hoping in my heart that you get to keep him because even if he was well fed, the collar sounds odd, as does the total lack of training and him not knowing how to play. I know if it was me I would want my dog back, but I treat my dogs well (lol) and I kind of feel like this little guys happiness is starting to shine with you, when it probably wasn't before.
It'll take some time to get him used to the cats - you're lucky that they are very experienced with dogs, though, because that really helps if they're not freaking out all over the place. That just revs dogs up. Felix, I think, will settle down, too. He's probably just asserting his supremacy!
You know.........you are right!!! And I want Charlie here with me. I have already fallen for him. He is so sweet and he is realy beginning to fit in. I think if he went somewhere else, even a good place, he would wonder where we were... Him and Emmy have something special..
I have to make hubby fall in love with him. Charlie lalready oves my husband. All dogs do..... Something Juan has noticed about charlie is how he relaxedin the floor. He lays on his stomach and stretches his hind legs striaght out behind him and then stretches his front legs out in front. He lays in a straight line. "He's an airplane"!!!! But anyway, the reason Juan noticed this is because the dog who was the love of his life was a cocker spaniel named Bilbo Baggins. Bilbo lived 14-15 yrs old. And Bilbo used to lay this way too.
I have never seen anything like it except in those two dogs. I'm sure others do it but I have just never seen it.
And ok........no looking for the owners. We knocked on the two doors where we initially saw him in the ice and that's all.....
I've got to get him comfortable around the cats. That's will win Juan's heart. He has already said "If we didn't have three dogs already, we would keep Charlie"...... That's means he really likes Charlie a lot. And he has a lot of sympathy for him too. He keeps remembering how he looked in the ice. Juan was the one who got out of the truck to go get him. He carried him back to our vehicle and put him in the middle of the seats and a few mintues later he had his head on Juan's lap. Juan aimed the heater at him to warm him up...
JJ is the dominate male and he takes his "pride work" seriously......hehe
|Note to Juan....
Give in, you don't have a chance.
|I think your husband likes him too, maybe use the guilt thing on him, ( I want this to work, so I am willing to resort to any means here ) remind him how Charlie looked when ya'll found him, tell him that Charlie had probably never been loved, tell him anything, just so Charlie stays with ya'll.|
