On Day 2 of Corgi Christmas, the corgi brought to me…
After last night’s post, I turned in for the evening, my loyal corgi companion alongside me. Well, at least, that’s where she started. She ended up pacing in and out of the room a few times, panting and licking, and it was just one of those restless nights. Allie was a little anxious, I think, and I’m a light go-to-sleeper sometimes – so we made a lovely pair 😉 . I don’t want her owners to feel bad, though… I’ve had plenty of those nights WITHOUT a dog around, and Allie ended up sleeping just fine (as did I, after moving my portable bed to another room).
But oh, this was Christmas day! It’s generally just another day around this house… my mom makes monkey bread in the morning and there’s a little more “family togetherness” but that’s about it. This year, though, we had a corgi to love up 🙂 . Allie was completely settled into things by this morning, having accepted her fate of Mushakian-ness, but she allowed for a central focus that brought the rest of us into the same space more often than not. Heck, at one point I brought my mom into my room to show her something pretty in Grand Theft Auto (a snow-covered world in the online version), and my sister followed in with the dog, and eventually my dad. All five of us were in there for hours, as my parents awkwardly ran amok in the game. Family spending time together is common fare for most, but this is the most time I’ve spent with them in a long time… it was actually kinda nice. It was, in other words, a Corgi Christmas miracle!
Allie has gotten along with everyone in the house, but has taken quite a preference to my mom and sister. Must be a girl thing. Since we’re watching MY friends’ dog, I have taken it upon myself to be responsible for her, but Allie has actually spent more time with the rest of my family than with me. I’m not complaining, and I’m hardly shunning her, I think she’s just enjoying having the wider variety of companions to choose from. She’s in with my sister tonight, and I think they’re already tucked off into bed together, so when I wake up early tomorrow, it may take a strategic maneuver to get Allie off the bed and downstairs for some pee-time and food.
