I'm hoping very soon to be moving out of my apartment and into my very own house and am looking to get a new dog since the one I had before I had to give away sad.gif

I've really been interested in the Welsh Corgi's, as I think my dog of old kinda had just a little bit of that in him, just with a tail and not so short of legs.

From what I've read about them and seen of them on videos they are just a wonder to have and are quite playful and loyal

Does anyone have one of these dogs? and if not what kind of dog do you have or would you like to own?

Shenaniganz247 congratulations on getting your own house. Sorry to hear that you had to give away your pet. It must have been heartbreaking. My wife and I thoughout our 30 years of marriage have had 5 dogs over the years. We started out with a blonde American Cocker Spaniel Female and a Black English/Springer Spaniel Male. They were both wonderful dogs but Brandy the male was a little jealous when my son was born. He went to live with my parents for six years and a year after he came home he was hit by a snow plow and we had to put him down. Shortly after we got Ebony, a spaniel lab mix to keep megan company. Megan lived until she was 11. She went blind and started to have crippling seizures. So to keep Ebony company we got Ivory, a yellow lab/greyhound mix. Some how 5 years later we ended up with Rimshot. He is a smooth over Jack Russel. All white except for a black patch over his right eye. Smartest dog we have ever had. We lost both Ivory (17yrs old) and Ebony(18yrs old) Before Christmas. We miss them both and so does Rimshot. I suspect that when it is his time that my wife will want another puppy. I'm kind of beside myself as to get a puppy or save a dog form a bad situation. If get a puppy I would like a Boarder Collie.
I have a friend with a Corgie and he is full of energy and very obiediant. I have yet to see him on a leash, he is that well behaved.
Good luck on your choice

The Scots of course insist that the pipes produce music. But the point is after all not too important. For those who love them, the pipes can evoke more vividly than any other instrument, high emotion, they can inspire valor, and tell of tragic tales of battles long ago. They can call forth merriment or sentiment. It does not matter what the sound is called, those who are deaf to its merits would not understand anyway.

For the house I like a Dachshund, a LOT of dog in a small package.

If I ever decide to get another dog it would be a Border Collie.

We have some friends that have corgis. They are great dogs. That was what I wanted but hubby is a Labrador man so we ended up with Bailey the demon dog. The only thing they have ever complained about with the corgi is that they shed alot.

We have two Dobermans. These are our third and fourth and the breed is wonderful.

Our first was a blue female. Sweet dog, wonderful personality. So smart, but she got sick and was only nine when we had to put her down.

When our girls were quite young, our red dobe would lay on the floor and they would use him as a pillow. Toy. Horse for rides...then again, he was a HUGE boy at 130 pounds. We had to put him down a couple years ago. His back legs quit working. It was horrible because he was still in there, you could see the warm intelligence still in his eyes. He just couldn't move anymore. I cried for weeks and so did the girls.

A year before he died, we adopted a rescue dobe. Black. He came to us at 48 pounds and had an open injury on his spine, right to the bone, where someone must have thought beating him would make him mean. The only thing it did was make him run and hide every time I tried to sweep the floor. I'm happy to say though he's now at 81 pounds and a happy guy.

Our newest red one isn't quite two yet and a riot! She thinks she's a mountain goat though (you can see in the pictures), and she pesters Chance no end, but they're an awesome breed. We call them our Velcro dogs. They sit on us, I'll be cooking at the stove and one or the other or both will come lean against the backs of my legs. They're not outdoor dogs, they want to be with the rest of the family, are warm, loving animals and have one of the worst reputations in dogland!

Anyway, that's my input, FWIW.

Congrats on your new home and good luck with whatever breed you choose.

This is the puppy...mountain goat! IF the picture works. I still have trouble with those.

And this is the 'old man'...

My younger daughter wants a corgi. She has for a long time. She's never home now though to care for one so she'll wait until she has her own home.

Shenaniganz,

First let me congratulate you on your new house it's always a grand event in one's life and of course to call it your "own" castle.

I know for my personal taste the kind of dogs that I enjoy are strong dogs and outside dogs...not that I mind them inside but dogs are more inclined to do property damage when lonely. And like us humans, dogs enjoys very much company that is why we had two. We are a working and travelling couple so just one dog was out of the question for his life would've been misery.

We had a big frost fence dog pen (10'x10') build outside for them and their doghouse was there.So it was there place while we were at work and when we get home they were let loose on the property backyard which is fenced all around.My dogs have never been chained in any way.
We had our dogs (Siberian husky and a small terrier) for over 15 beautiful years.
I never had another since their passing...maybe one day.

If I were to have an inside dog I would get a small one like Dogshirt suggestions...and I would again probably have two for them to be buddies thus not lonely while you are out.

We have had Lucy for eight years now, She's a mix of Shepperd and Boarder collie. On the intelligence scale they rate number one. Some times to smart. They always need to be doing something or they get in trouble that first four or five years. Easily trained and very loyal to family. Not a dog I would leave at home for a extended period of time, to much energy. We are lucky enough to live near a boarder collie trainer And as soon as we could payed for ten hours of training on herding and agility. No matter what dog you decide on please think about a breed rescue program. Just Google that breed. Good Luck.

I love animals! Dogs are my favorite. I don't know much about the Corgi's but haven't heard anything bad about them. I also had a Border Collie Sheppard mix and it was the smartest dog I owned.

Right now I have a Schipperke, they take lots of attention, they do nothing slow and they are highly intellgent as well. They shed as well and are very protective. I had a couple of Dachshunds growing up they were great house dogs.

I would say to you, the dog is only as good as it's owner makes him/her. I hope you will let us know what you decide on.

Congats, Shenaniganz, on the new adventure!

As to dogs, the best dog we ever had was our yellow lab. She travelled everywhere with us, including back and forth across the Pacific when we lived in Japan. (Actually, she was made in Japan!) We had her for 13 years before we lost her to severe hip and joint problems. She truly was our best friend.

After a couple of years without a pooch, we jumped back in with a boxer. (yes, I know it is not a lab.) We took care of our son's boxer for a couple of months and that sold us on the breed. More attention is needed with a boxer but still a fine dog.

I can highly recommend either breed.

I had a little Schipperke in The Sims 2 and he was my favorite!

Corgis are super cute! I do tend to prefer our newer puppy! He is amazing, he tells us the weather!

I do not yet know how to add a picture or I would!

Our dog is a lab/samoyed mix. The reason we landed on him was because there is lab in him. Labs are smart and I have found him to be easy to train!

A good way you can find out the best dog for you is to look over their temperment, health info, grooming needs and so on!

As I said the corgis are so cute! Just research his info, make sure it fits your lifestyle!! I hope you get what you want!

I wasn't a small dog person (or at least I though!) until we rescued our Toy Fox Terrier. She doesn't have a "yippie" bark and seems to be fairly intelligent for a smaller dog. She is VERY loyal and actually has a calm temperment, unless you get her stirred up with a squeaky toy or a treat. I've had dogs my whole life. While the Lab/Golden Retriever mix was the most easily trained I wouldn't give up my toy fox for anything. She is VERY entertaining and expressionate. I've never had a dog that made me laugh so much! She gets cold very easily so she loves to have "clothes" on. I just hold the shirt or sweater for her and she'll poke her head through and try to get her legs in on her own.

The Lab/Golden mix we had was GREAT with kids and had a VERY calm temperment. Although he shed a ton, and he was to smart for his own good! He used to open the fridge and help himself to whatever he wanted. He even figured out how to get the lids off of the tupperware without bitting holes in it.

We are thinking of getting another dog, and I'll probably get another toy fox and we have talked about a corgi as well. I've not heard anything bad about them.

This picture was before her diet smile.gif She was secretly feasting on kitten food for a couple of weeks and packed on the lbs quick!
