Hi everybody! I'm Harold, the "little" puppy you met on this blog eight months ago! Well let me tell you, I'm not so little any more!
This is what I looked like when we made our big Daily Corgi debut back in February. (I'm the smaller guy on the left, and that's my big brother Erk).
Here is a more recent picture -- can you tell who is a year older now?
Maybe it's easier to tell us apart here -- I'm the handsome lad on the left. My "skullcap" markings came in nicely, don't you think?
Erk is the best big brother a Corgi could ask for. We play all day -- we are feisty! When I was smaller and we'd rough house, I think he sometimes "let me win", but now I am EVEN BIGGER THAN HIM! Yep, the vet told me I weigh more than he does now. Heh heh, now we can REALLY wrestle! Erk is the Beast from Back East, and I Bring the Pain from the Colorado Plains. It's always in good fun though ...
Erk and I have very different personalities. He is the protector of the house, always patrolling the premises and checking on our Mom and Dad to make sure everything is OK. Here he is "protecting" his Daddy.
Erk is also the athlete of the family. While I have my puppy frap attacks, I am much more laid back than my big brother. If Mom or Dad throws a toy, I just let Erk do all the hard work of running to get it, then take it from him when he runs back. Ha! He falls for it every time. Erk may have have the brawn but I think I got the brains in the family! I'm also the conversationalist of the family, always talking! What can I say? I like to be be the center of attention. One of my favorite activities is getting rubdowns from Mom. She's in Massage Therapy school, so really I'm just helping her practice. That's why I (good-naturedly) growl at her whenever she tries to stop petting me. But then I give her some love licks, so we're even. I demand a lot of affection, but I always give it back!
Here is a photo of me on one of my favorite spots to sit. Mom and Dad say it's fitting that I like to put myself on a pedestal. I have no idea what they are talking about.
Even with all our differences, Erk and I love the same things. Our favorite thing to do (other than getting treats) is going on car rides!
Cars are excellent for sleeping on the run.
Usually we go to the park, but on extra lucky days we get to go hiking in the mountains! We scramble over rocks on trails, and Daddy says we must be part mountain goat. He's so silly -- we are ALL CORGI!
I wonder if the mountains in our ancestral Wales look like this ...
Erk just wonders how long it would take to pee on all those trees!
On our last trip, Mom and Dad took us to see the famous Stanley Hotel that inspired Stephen King to write The Shining. Mom tried to take a picture of us with Dad, but we were ready to get outta there! It was spOOky ...
Happy Halloween, everybody!
