6 Um, what are they?…

>> Wednesday, March 17, 2010

…usually the first question that comes out of everyone’s mouth upon meeting our little canine companions—often accompanied by a tilt of the head and nervous giggle.

No worries, my friends. We know our babies weren’t meant to prance their paws at fancy dog shows, but let’s take a moment to explore what they really are bred to do…

Today we’ll focus on subject #1…

Our incredibly sophisticated research (aka Google & cornering our vet who is clearly antisocial and uncomfortable in the same room with mammals other than the four legged kind) reveals that Ralph is—drum roll please…

Wikipedia had tons of info to share on these furry breeds, but basically this combo produces a fine specimen with the following characteristics…

Welsh folklore says the Corgi is the preferred mount of fairy warriors. (Great. Not only do I have to worry about fleas hitching a ride on Ralph’s back, but fairies as well?)

Because the Parson was bred to hunt, it can be difficult for them to live with some pets such as small rodents. (Small rodents? No worries there.)

That’s Ralph in a nutshell. We’ve gotta scoot now. All this Ralph talk is enough to wear a little guy out…

You can definitely tell by those adorable ears that he has a lot of corgi in him. I have two corgi and I love the ears, but hate the shedding. Cute dog!

Donna, agreed! Love the ears, personality and goofy smile, but I could do without the little white furs.

Holly, Ralph is such a stinker! If he is not running full speed, he is sleeping like a log. There is no middle ground with our little guy.

Thanks, Cara Beth! We love his little corgi tendencies. I haven't ever met a full blown Parson Russell Terrier, but they must be sweet little fellas as well.
