Oh, okay. Well, I don't think it should be a fault because he looks great. How come long haired chihuahuas (for example) aren't considered a fault, but a fluffy corgi is? Is it because it's less common?

It's a fault because of function... something about how a corgi's hair is if it's long hinders it ability to herd, because the coat collects dirt and debris really easily... it doesn't repel water like a normal corgi coat, and they get ice balls all over. It's okay that it's a fault... it keeps them uncommon, which makes them special to me. >^_^<

Me too! That was really unexpected, lol.

I always have to stay away from the adoption places. They are way too tempting! When we were looking at Dixie's Petfinder pictures, I was looking at other dogs as well. Ian was like, "Oh no! No more dogs!" Hehe

It was unexpected, lol. I just wanted to tell the lady how Carlie was doing and then I saw the dog and my heart just melted. I think I'll stay away from PetSmart on the weekends so I'm not tempted anymore, but we have been thinking for a while about getting another dog so it wasn't completely random. I think I can resist if I see another one in the future because I won't feel that we need another one..

...Yet...

We didn't think that we'd want more, either!
