I've decided to start a blog for my dog Bender. He's a 2 and 1/2 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi. We adopted him when he was just over a year old. It was love at first lick.
We call him many names: The Duke, Bender Peabody-Snarflenubbins, Bender-Buddy, BooBoo Bear(kins), Sausage, Link, Nubbins, Nubbers, Dummy, Dum Dum...
He enjoys naps, raw hides, pulling the stuffing from toys, playing in the back yard, and pulling apart anything made of cardboard.
Bender is my first dog. I was bitten when I was younger and had a terrible fear of all dogs. This changed the day I met Bender. My other half was asked to baby-sit a corgi for a while while they tried to find him a home. I went to his office to pick the dog up. I got there, sat on the floor with him, he licked my face and sat in my lap. That's all it took. He melted my heart - love at first lick. Obviously we ended up keeping Bender, a decision I couldn't be happier about.
Hopefully with this blog I can share all his goofy little mannerisms and fun adventures.
Right after we brought him home.
