    Last night I attached a small 6 x 4 inch double sided Corgi decal to the car window. Abby was playing ball outside the garage and did not see me doing this.

    This morning as we approached the car, to my utter amazement, she stopped abruptly, stared at the decal and gave a low threatening growl, which immediately changed to a look of delight.

    She ran up to the car wagging her tail, never taking her eyes off the Corgi who obviously was waiting for her inside. Impatiently waited for me to open the door, then leapt in to investigate and could not believe it when she found this Corgi had somehow managed to get outside and was now facing her again.

    The next few minutes were quite hysterical, as quivering with excitement she turned herself nearly inside out trying to check the back and the front of the visiting Corgi. I thought at one stage that to calm her down I would have to remove it. However after a while she contented herself with thoroughly snuffling and kissing the Corgi face.

    We then proceeded to drive over for a Hydrobath and I took these pics on our return. You will see very clear evidence of the snuffling and kissing in the second pic, the decal is now full of bubbles from all the attention it received.

    Next week we are going UpCountry to visit with Abby's Breeder Graeme. He is as excited as we are, as we have not seen him since I picked up Abby seventeen months ago. In all that time we have never seen another Corgi, so you can be sure I will be taking my camera along to record the grand reunion of Abby with her kinfolk.

    Hey Kath!

    That's too funny - mmm, could there be a new playmate in Abby's future? I bet she'll have a great time with her kinfolk!

    What a cute story! I see in that second photo what you were saying, that corgi in the window has been well loved LOL!!! I do think that Corgi's like their own kin. The first time I took Dillon back to see his breeder and his mom, two aunts, and great grandfather He was sooo excited to see them. He had not been there for 7 months and yet, it was like he remembered them all, he was playing great with them and what a joy it was to see. He seems to get more excited to see another corgi than any other breed of dog...like he says " hey! another shortie, just like me!!! " and he runs over to say hi. You must get photos of this reunion - I am sure that Abbey will have so much fun! Oh and I love the decal...where did you find that...

    I purchased the decal from the Australian site www.pawsawhile.com.au

    They are made by a UK firm J&S Products who have an online store and the website is http://www.dogstickers.com/ They also have caps, Tshirts, key rings, magnets,coasters,. signs etc etc. Corgis are listed under W, and there are both Pembroke and Cardigan sections.

    Abby will just love meeting with other Corgis. The greatest getting together is off-leash so I hope she has tons of time in free-greeting, playing and just mucking about.

    What a cute story Kat (and I agree with Margo - well told!)! You must have been laughing so hard! There's never a video camera around when you need one!! It's making me want to get a decal for my car, just to see if Jackie does the same thing!

    Have fun at the reunion!!! :D
