The new pup came to this household to join my humans and me, January 18 2014. He was just 9 weeks old! He was born November 14 or something like that [mom has to get his AKC papers and she forgot his whelp date] . He was born in New Mexico. Mom was really searching for a new pup to start training in agility. She considers me… a pup getting older.
She thought nice to find a Cardigan Welsh Corgi instead of the cute lil Pembroke Welsh that I am! She wanted the corgi with the tail!
So off to meet someone in Ft. Worth Texas, we drove for about three hours to meet up with someone for the puppy hand off!
The puppy is called Wally or Wall-E or Wallerino Wall Wall or Wallerino Wah Wah or Wallers. He seems to come to it all or can equally ignore them all.
January 18 2014.. one lil sad eyed droopy ear pup! He came as Impy, or Mr Impers man, because he has a lil white spot on his head, as if kissed by the fairies. He is a corgi and that is special!
Yes, this is me, the Kaley corgi pup… and now I have to start training this new pup for ways of the house. He seems to listen to me rather well! For the first few days, I would bark so he would not come down the hall way to the family bedroom. Mom here thought that was so very wrong of me! She let him come into the bedroom to sleep with all of us. For the first few times she had to coax him with a doggie treat but now he knows the way around. I relented.
First two nights the puppy was such a big hit with the human kid, who is only 6 years old. He requested to sleep by the crate.
Belly view, notice his lil tatoo fur heart!
This is his bottom end view… notice the silly long thing…that is his tail. I do not have one! Not sure what the big deal is to get a corgi with a tail! It only flops around and wiggles.
The pup kid now sleeps in the human stroller. He is not good with the crate and since it is broken…he has pawed his way out twice! Strong and determined pup. Mom is going to have to teach him some house rules!
One of the ways and rule of this house is…..no dirty pups allowed. He is going to have to get used to occasional baths which include fur cuts and nail trims!
Another rule of the house is. No pup gets to go outside unless an adult says you can! Another rule is no pup out of the house without a leash….. and ONLY one pup out of the house in the front at a time!
He is learning the command, “COME Wall-E” and he immediately gets a cookie. He likes that very much. It is a good thing to train him all the basics and basics are to come when called. I had the hardest time learning this because mom gave me too much freedom and it made for who I am today. Mom says the rules are going to be solidify early….or so she says! After all, he is a corgi and who knows what kind of attitude he will have. LOL.
Another important thing around here is….no pup is allowed to go bathroom inside the house! She takes him out almost every hour and limits his free run around in the house. After eating he goes out after about half an hour to go poo. He learned this quickly and he goes on the grass, but if mom forgets, he will go poo inside. She uses the command, “GO POO” and of course he gets his nice lil puppy cookie treat.
There is lots of X pen time for the pup, but it is a good thing it is stock with pup toys and a kid!
From the very beginning he has been a very quiet pup inside the house, but every time he is out in the front yard and sees a pup or human walk by on foot or bike, he barks. Mom thinks he is only being a very good watch dog but she is teaching him to stop barking when she says so. Pup is very friendly and has met a few lil kids and adults and so far he likes them all. I do not mind adults, but I am not so friendly with other pups or kids. Poor socializing when I was young. Mom is not making the same mistake with this new pup.
This pup seems to be working out okay. Loves to only be with mom or the kid. Just wait til he gets to be 30 pounds and not fit on mom’s chair and too heavy for anyone to pick up and hold like a baby!
Mom is going to try to get him to learn the fetch the ball routine. So far he is not doing much fetching! He just does a lot of chewing and even if they are tiny teeth, they are dangerous!
Kaley corgi kisses!!!
