Bender: An Introduction

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.

I <3>

He hates being leashed.
Being goofy in the car.


  1. Bender is sooo cute!! I'm glad you opened up your heart (and home) to him and I'm glad you started a blog; there are lots of corgi blogs out there and everyone is real friendly and nice; I'm sure lots will eventually find their way to you

    looking forward to getting to know Bender and you more :)

    (these corgis are so full of personality, aren't they :)


  2. OF COURSE you fell in love with him... He's a CORGI isn't he! NO ONE can resist those corgi eyes and personality! As we say around here: We are Low-cutest of Corg... You WILL be assimilated!!! The Country Corgi Crew
