I thought this thread looked familiar and I welcome it with open arms.

Here's a dog I had in 2009. I miss him. Gave him to a family with a big yard.

Dogges in Platoons



quote:

When Marine Sgt. Ross Gundlach served as a dog handler in Afghanistan, he told the yellow lab who was his constant companion that he'd look her up when he returned home.
"I promised her if we made it out of alive, I'd do whatever it took to find her," Gundlach said.
On Friday, he made good on that vow with help from some sentimental state officials in Iowa who know how to pull off a surprise.
Since leaving active duty to take classes at the University of Wisconsin this summer, Gundlach, of Madison, Wis., had been seeking to adopt 4-year-old Casey.
The 25-year-old learned Casey had finished her military service and had been sent to the Iowa State Fire Marshal's Office, where she was used to detect explosives.
Gundlach wrote to State Fire Marshal Director Ray Reynolds, explaining the connection he felt with the dog. He even has a tattoo on his right forearm depicting Casey with angel wings and a halo, sitting at the foot of a Marine.
"He's been putting a case together for the last two months, sending me pictures ... it just tugged on your heart," Reynolds said.
Reynolds decided to arrange a surprise. First, he got in touch with the Iowa Elk's Association, which agreed to donate $8,500 to buy another dog for the agency.
"We have a motto in our association that as long as there are veterans, the Elks will strive to help them," Iowa Elks Association president Tom Maher said.
Then, Reynolds came up with a ruse to get Gundlach to Des Moines, telling Gundlach he needed to come to the state Capitol to plead his case in front of a "bureaucratic oversight committee."
When Gundlach arrived with his parents, Reynolds told them the meeting had been delayed and invited them to join an Armed Services Day celebration in the rotunda. There, hundreds of law enforcement officers, military personnel and civilians were seated, keeping the secret until they brought out Casey.
When Gundlach saw Casey, he put his head in his hands and cried. She licked his face, wagging her tail furiously.
"It was a total surprise," he said. "I owe her. I'll just try to give her the best life I can."
His father, Glen Gundlach, seemed just as surprised.
"It's unbelievable ... the state of Iowa, I love 'em," he said.
Gov. Terry Branstad officially retired Casey from active duty during Friday's ceremony, thanking the dog for a "job well done."
During the 150 missions they performed together, Gundlach said Casey never missed an explosive she caught three before they could be detonated. He credits her for making it back home safely.
"I wouldn't be here ... any kids I ever had wouldn't exist if Casey hadn't been here," he said.

How much are Corgis, anyway? I'd probably adopt one from a shelter or rescue, if that makes any difference.

There are corgi rescues in almost every state where you can get one that's a few years old that just needs a home for a hundred bucks or two.

Only a three hour drive away. Going out there next month for a few days, gonna pry at the missus a bit.

There's a corgi rescue here in Florida as well. Originally I was going to go with them, but the only fellas they had last I looked would not have been good fits for me due to ongoing health issues or otherwise. Also adoption fees, medical costs, etc would have been about what I'm paying now. The only thing I'll have to do to Dakota anytime soon is get him neutered.

We got home and he had a new place to explore. First we went to the yard incase he needed to pee. He didn't and just walked back onto the cement over to me like "what's up, boss?"



So we went inside and got some water.



After water we again ventured outdoors. He was hesitant about the steps at first but managed them fine.





Back inside in the kitchen I tossed him a squeaky ball. He ran towards it and got tired right upon arrival.


He was undaunted by his exhaustion, though, and went after the ball.



It slipped from his reach and he had to get up a bit.



He eventually gave up and came over to see me.




After sufficient pettings he just flopped on the floor.



When I got up and walked around he seemed to have got a second wind, so we rassled for a bit.








He's all tuckered and asleep now.

Yeah anytime my hand is in his mouth I make it clear there is no biting. If he bites at all, he gets warned. He's been going after my toes so we've got some work, but it's coming along well. We just did a few minutes of getting used to his kennel. So far so good.

He did pee a little bit on my floor when I walked into the kitchen. I didn't realize he had woke up. No scolding him, though. Just keeping an eye so I can take him outside and reward him next time.

Since the weather's nice, you might be able to train him to poo poo in one area...I wanted to do that with Logan but it was too loving cold and I gave up...but he actually does it on his own anyway.

Dogs are usually pretty good about that. I don't really care as long as it's outside.

After a bit of crate practice, he decided on another nap.



After a bit he got up and ate some food. I should have photoed this because he was laying down while eating.

Then we played with some toys.



Now he's hiding under the couch. He's further back than this. He poked his head out when I asked "what are you doing down there?" and then went back. The black above him is the front side of my couch.





EDIT: He somewhat came out from under and passed out again.



EDIT 2: He didn't like that I snapped his pic and decided to burrow further.

Well, we had it a little rough at first in Dakota's first night of crate training, but he's getting the hang of it. We did have to go out 4 times, but he's still a pup. It's to be expected. No messes in the crate! I ended up sleeping next to the crate which helped him relax.

We have got to work on the whole fetch thing, though.

EDIT: Crate pic


Here's Dakota after a quick walk to the end of the next house and back. That was too much for his little legs.
