The Saga of Dudley the Studley

There once was a dog whose only job was to eat, drink and procreate on a fairly regular basis. You'd think this would be heaven to the dog, but you'd be wrong. He decided that after fathering a few litters of puppies that he'd done his duty to the world of the corgi and he could retire in peace.

His new vow of celibacy was a source if intense irritation to his owners who had him for the sole purpose of procreating. The eating and drinking part were only to keep him alive and happy. But he took these too far and ate horse-loads of food thereby gaining enough weight to successfully hide his good bone structure. This did nothing to enhance his already low desire for the girls.

So this dog was replaced by someone a little more willing to do the job. And he did it with great delight. This new dog truly thinks he is in doggy heaven and is loving life immensely. He eats, he drinks, and he knows he'll be loving life again and again. It's truly a dog's life.

But wait - what's this? The dud of a stud has decided that there's someone encroaching on his turf. He does not like this interloper standing watch over his harem. At every opportnity Dudley will find a way to get out of his kennel and stand at the door of the intruder and bark. And bark. This does nothing to redeem him in the eyes of the kennel owner. In fact, it only adds to his list of shortcomings. Dumb dog.

So Dudley was renamed. His new name was For Sale. And it remained so until it was changed once again to Sold. Dudley found the home of his dreams. After a mere two days of living life at his new home (with no girls in sight may I add) his new owners couldn't be more thrilled with him. It's reported that he meanders through the yard, watches the ducks and chickens run circles around him and licks anything that comes within range of his oversized tongue. He has no desire to waddle back home, or anywhere else for that matter. He has found the monastery of his dreams.



(And don't anyone have the nerve to tell me that Indie - aka Dudley - is much prettier than Teddy. You don't think I know that? But sometimes pretty is as pretty does. Dumb monk dog.)

Well, glad you found a good home for him. And that he is happy in his new- not procreating- home.

Ahh, the corgi tufts of fur . . . how I don't miss cleaning up after those!

And 'Dudley' looks exactly like our lazy, overly padded, waddling guy.

This is too funny!! You would think the guy would be in heaven. Men, you just can't ever figure them out.

So from this I take it you're just in it for the sale of pups? The dog wouldn't perform on command so out you go, you're not any good anymore! Jesus! It's people like you that make me weep for the unloved, unwanted animals. Could you possibly be more cold hearted? Unsubscribing NOW.

Pam - No, we're not in it just for the pups. I love dogs and that's why we raise them. I was very selective in both choosing a replacement and in finding a new home for the retired boy. Much as we'd love to keep every dog that we grow attached to, we simply do not have the space for it. And we gave him away, without charging a cent because I know that he got the home of his dreams. That's what a responsible owner does.

Dudley certainly was a pretty pup, even if he didn't have any get up and go. Maybe his new family will restrict his diet. :)

Happy Mother's Day!

Dudley was a hansome man, but is the new man a tri colored corgi? I so want me a tri colored corgi. My old horse trainer had the tan cogis. I love them. They are so cute! I could so take one home!! I would be sold if you were to post puppy pictures!! Too bad you are too far away, I could trade a horse breed for a puppy!!

I'm glad you found a home for Dudley. It sounds like he is very happy. As for Pam, if she doesn't realize how much you care for these dogs or the trouble you go through for them then she is no loss as a reader. There are so many horrible puppy mills out there with people who only care for the money, not the dog. We need more breeders like you who care about the dogs and find good homes for them. I know when you sell the puppies you make sure they are going to good homes, unlike the puppy mills who could care less what happens to the dogs in the new home. It's hard to get nasty comments but I hope you won't let it get you down. You have many faithful readers that enjoy your puppy saga's and know you are a kind and caring person.

Smile! :)

Hate to bash other readers, but poop on Pam if she really thinks you're only in it for the money...has she been reading anything you've written in the past few months? Gah! It wasn't like you chucked him out of a speeding car into a wooded area!!! WTH! He got a very wonderful home.
