Will and I are very happy to introduce our new puppy, Spencer!!!! On Thursday afternoon, I Googled where to get Welsh Corgi puppies and found the website for Denning Farms, a local breeder who had Corgi pups ready to go just a few miles South of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. I emailed the breeder and got a reply back that evening. After making a few phone calls, the breeder and I arranged a time to come and see the Corgi pup for sale on her farm. He was the last little guy left! The clearance puppy!
Of course, we couldn't resist the little guy so we payed up and the kind lady handed over some kibble and the AKC registration papers. Our new puppy took one last romp with his family before we left his home for good.
This was kind of sad. Our little guy said one last goodbye to his mother before he left his pack to join ours. Seriously, kinda made me wanna cry!
Spencer looked a bit unsure on the car ride back to my parent's house, which we stayed at all weekend.
Our pup loved to run around freely at my parent's house. They have tons of grass for him to romp around in and soo much new stuff to explore.
Pretty much instantly, our new pet rid himself of his insecurity and dove right into his new life whole-heartedly. What a fearless puppy!
What a good looking pup. He looks like a fox in the face with big, perky bat ears attatched at the top.
Aurora loved playing with the little puppy. Here, she is trying to get him to drink some water, but is more or less playing with the water.
Will is equally tired and joins in for a nap. I had no clue how exhausting raising a puppy would be.
We took Spencer to the beach but sadly, his is kind of an indoor kid. On the farm, he was kept in a nice, air conditioned garage and never had to deal with the hot sun or dirty old pond water.
Spencer gave it a try and then decided to say hi to everyone on the beach instead..... Including jumping into this little kid's sand castle.
Instead of getting abused by the sun like Will and I, Spencer spent his day under the picnic table in the nice cool sand. He even dug into it a little bit to make it more cool.
My puppy has a heart on his butt! I love this, as it turns the grossest part of a dog's body into something pretty frickin' cute.
All in all, our first few days with our new puppy have been pretty amazing. Spencer is fearless, playful, loving, cute, and extremely intelligent. It took about 5 minutes of work to get him to come to his name, he can heel behind your feet as you walk, and he has learned to sit already. Housebreaking him has been super easy so far, and he really seems to have bonded well with Will and I. Spencer is the best puppy, ever!
