I Got a Pembroke Welsh Sable Corgi for my Birthday!

in steempress •  2 years ago  (edited)


Alright, guys here's the deal. I haven't really been traveling around the world for the last 7 months. I've been grounded in the Pacific Northwest for the time is working on a tech contract to replenish my funds that have been depleted from constant travel. Don't get me wrong, travel is cheap, and could have continued traveling for years on end. But, I needed a break and time to work on this blog more (I have so many stories and content to share!).

I know I don't write a lot about my private life often and prefer instead to share with you my personal adventures. A lot has happened when I got back to the States. One big thing that has happened is that I got married. I met my now wife during my travels in Eastern Europe. Someday I will write about that and share with you but that's not the subject of this story.

This article covers another big news.

I Got a Pup Sable Corgi for my Birthday!

Sable Corgi Lucky
Okay so he loves to dress up cool like his daddy

Yes, my wife got me a Sable Corgi Pup for my Birthday :)

We named him Lucky. Lucky the Corgi.

"<yoastmark

Lucky is not your common everyday red corgi. He's the last pup of the litter that wasn't sold (yet) from a breeder in Centralia, Washington. He's lucky because it was destiny that he would be ours. My wife and I had a long search for a breeder in Washington State and almost always most of them had a waiting list for their upcoming pups. We were working to get Pembroke Welsh Corgi with a breeder in Omak but she gave us the run around that eventually led us to Lucky's breeder.

We got lucky with lucky. Get it?

Alright, so who's lucky? Lucky is a Welsh Corgi. A dog breed that's closely related to the Siberian Husky but has very short (but cute) little stubby legs. Lucky in particular is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. The other breed amongst the Corgi line is the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Corgi literally means "Dwarf Dog" coming from the Welsh words Cor (meaning dwarf) and Gi (meaning dog). Corgis are an ancient breed probably brought over by the invading Vikings when they started to settle as farmers on the British Isles.

The farmers used Corgis to herd cattle and so lucky for us, is Lucky's tendency to exhibit this trait. He would constantly chase us around the park barking and nibble at our ankle, heels, and toes. Yes, the little punk gets away with so much it's a crime. My wife and I on some occasions get several scratches from his play herding. He gets away with it because he's lucky to be loved by us.

Lucky is turning out to be a Sable Corgi. We first thought he was going to be the common red & white Corgi. For about a week, it appeared like he wasn't going to be sable but then he matured a little and started to exhibit some characteristics of a Cable Corgi with black lines and accents throughout his face. We did some further research and we found out that Sable Corgis are the rare shade of the breed.

Lucky belongs to a traveling family and in the few weeks that we've had him he's been us to nearly all the corners of Washington State. He loves to play bite and chase us around the house so, for now, we have him gated in our kitchen. When go out camping he sleeps fine inside the tent but he would occasionally wake us up by licking the bejeesus out our faces.

He loves people and just about every dogs he comes to contact with. We once took him out for a walk in the Seattle Pier's Boardwalk on a busy day and boy was that a mistake. Every human, child, mother, daughters, and dudes would stop us on our tracks and ask if they could say "Hi" to Lucky. The poor guy gets constant Cat Calls from everyone he passes with whistles of "Oh how cute!" and "OMG is that a Corgi pup?"

Lucky loves the attention

We had one lady running towards us and practically mauled little Lucky with kisses and hugs. We had to keep a close eye on him for fear that he might get kidnapped!

Lucky is an effin' chick magnet. If I wasn't married I'd be one happy single dude. Chicks come running up to me just to say hi to Lucky. He's the perfect icebreaker. I don't even have to approach first or come up with a cheesy opening line. Hell, I don't even need to showcase my Ninja skills. No, Lucky is all the luck I need and guess what? I'd be getting lucky every night!


This dude is a massive chick magnet

Okay, so let me get off my fantasy before my wife kills me. All jokes aside, I'm very lucky to have such a wonderful wife who would give me Lucky as a present. I couldn't be more happy to have this little guy as a part of my family. He's lucky because he sure is going to be one of the most well-traveled dogs in the world.

AWWWW!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3

He's adorable! And, you're both lucky!! LOL!!

I'm in love with your dog ;- )
Such a cutie.
And while I'm writing that, honestly, my cat comes to give me a cuddle while I'm typing .... really !

So congratulate with this lovely little dog and your marriage !!

Aw!!! Lucky is absolutely gorgeous ❤ Give him a little cwtch from me from one welsh speaker to another ;)

Congratulations on marrying aucha thoughtful generous wife, and i hope the three of you have a wonderful time travelling all over together. I look forward to reading your adventures. E x

Thank you :)

That is cute as can be... and trouble with a capital "T!" Had a Pembroke for 14 years and she was a marvelous dog... and stubborn as heck, willful and totally ruled by her stomach. Have fun... I know you will!

Yes, very stubborn lol

I love your new baby already.
In that one shot he looks like trouble.
Enjoy your time.

Indeed, lots of trouble this one ))

Oh I know .. lol
you will love him all the more
impossible to resist

Owning a dog means a lot of responsibility. Some people get dog for a birthday and later lose interest and throw dog away. Be nice to your dog, he loves you too.

I thought Pomeranian dogs were cute. Forget Pomeranians.

Well they're cute too, but I had to go with a Corgi because they're on the top 10 smartest dog breeds...But I wonder about Lucky sometimes!

I love pets. I congratulate you because giving love to a puppy is the wonderful thing. Thank you for sharing this spectacular story. Congratulations.

Omg!! The little one is so adorable! ♥️
May both of you have great times together! 😃

I hope you love and enjoy your corgi. That's my girlfriends absolute favorite dog.

Awwww how cute!! I love this story and Lucky's name, can't wait to see more!

I'm sure you'll see more of him as he grows up and as he tears through our place more lol

Hahaha ! Good can't wait!

What a lovely little dog! @adonisabril, I mentioned this post in my last post.

I've been wanting to get a corgi. I had a rat terrier for 16 years and she died last year. I'm slowly healing from my loss and now I'm thinking about getting another dog and I really am considering a "gorgi". Thanks for writing about Lucky.

I like this animal. Because they are cute and happy.

Would look for it if I can get one 😍😍

Great post!

cute puppy.

If your dog is on a diet or has allergies, why not try an alterna-cake?

You can make a cake-shaped tower of their favorite dog treats glued together with dog-friendly icing, or a tempting pile of their favorite toys. Looking for the easy button? How about a cake-shaped plush dog toy for some zero-calorie funtumblr_o442qg6iB11t5mcbto2_540.jpg

Age of that pet ?

3 months

Oh thanks !

Man I love Corgis and your photos are awesome. Also good to hear he's a friendly little rascal.

The chick magnetism is completely understandable. If I was wiser in my younger years I would have gotten at least 3 pups since women love 'em like bees love honey! Haha.

Seriously though happy future dog days and salutes from me and my girls 7 year old rascal Ares 😃
