I like most breeds of dogs, especially Labs, Retreivers, Dalmations, Rottweilers, Bernese Mountain Dogs, Huskies & Malamutes. I have had three dogs live with me, although the first one, Lassie a Pomeranian-Alsatian mix died in just 4 days. My dog, and by all right the only one who can be called my dog for the almost 11 years of loyal companionship, Shawny was a Golden Retriever and Shawny Jr., who is actually my sister’s dog, was a black lab-dalmatian mix, lived with me for a year. Jr. now lives in my sister’s weekend residence in Chalakudy.
I’ve recently been idling thinking about getting a dog and what breed of dog to keep. I live in a small apartment though and over here you are not allowed to keep pets in your apartments, unless its fish or parrots or something like that. Which is a shame. But if I could, I would have to get a small dog and the perfect one is the Welsh Corgi. Pictured here is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, one of the two kinds of Corgis. This breed originates from Pembrokeshire, Wales and is an active, athletic & intelligent dog. Despite its short legs, the dogs were used for herding sheep and cattle (although I don’t keep cows or sheep in my apartment). I think a Corgi would be a great companion and although no dog can ever hope to replace Shawny in my life, I could see myself raising another dog.
