Inspired by SlimJ87D's pics of his dogs in the RL Pic thread, here is "pics of your pets."
I'll start; this is one of our cats, "Five," before and during yawning. I'll get to the other cat later. Cats yawning crack me up.
Wanted to share a pic of my dogs my GF took.
Believe it or not, these two have fought off a German Shepard and Coyote on separate occasions once. They don't look that strong, but they are brave together.
That's not surprising to me actually, Corgi's are tough little buggers lol. How much do yours weigh? I've heard they can weigh up to like 40 lbs. They were also bred to heard cattle so they are definitely tough little guys lol. I've been thinking of getting a second dog, and a Corgi is pretty high up on the list of potential candidates. Currently I have a very energetic five year old Norwegian Elk Hound/Border Collie mix. She is extremely smart and well behaved. I love my dog and I kind of want to get her a friend that she can play with, but I don't want another one as big as her (about 65lbs but still very gentle) so I've been looking for a dog that'd be around 30 to 45 lbs but also really smart and I know corgis are very smart dogs. I had an experience where my dog chased after a dear. There was another time before my first dog died where I coyote came out of the woods and she charged at it chasing it out lol.
I copied you into this thread. They are suppose to weigh 25 to 32 pounds. That is a healthy weight for them. My female weighs around 25 and my male around 30. My male is the smallest size for a male. The males tend to have a little bit more muscle on them from what I have noticed. But they make excellent dogs. They are almost as smart as a collie, being the 11th smartest dog in the world.
I would definitely read a book on their personalities and what to expect. Everything I read was pretty much spot on.
@SlimJ87D: Yeah I have read about them. There is this site called dog breed info that I go to to research dog breeds, which you can probably figure out from the site name lol. My dogs name is Dagny, it's a Norwegian pet name that means brightness and joy. She's almost too smart though. Because when she needs to go out we sometimes need to wait till we're done eating and she's learned almost ever word we use related to take her out and she perks up obviously when you say it lol. But she's got the brains of a border collie and the build of a Norwegian, though her coat pattern is kind of a mix of both. I live in a small neighborhood, and my house is lucky enough to be surrounded on two sided by woods. We can go on hikes with her through the woods and she'll wander off at most 100 yards but as soon as you call her or whistle she comes back. I love it lol. But yeah corgi's are definitely up there in intelligence. I think border collies are like number one or two in dog intelligence because poodles are in that area two but I forget where they lie exactly. Elk hounds are fearless when it comes to other animals, they were bred to track large game and keep them in a tight area till the hunters arrived. I'm talking about bear, moose, mountain lions, wolfs, and elk. Anyway, some pics now!
Here's my second cat, Rory, and then both of them together.
@InnerVenom123: we nick-named Rory "Oreo" too--he's even got the same black spot on his side that your dog has!
@Vortex13: Where do you live with that much snow? That's beautiful! Maybe not comfortable lol.
Western Massachusetts. That was two winters ago though because last winter we had almost no snow. But we did get a foot and a half of snow on holloween last year lol.
