Bodie

Meet Bodie. He's my fuzzy Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He's tri-colored, and has one blue eye and one brown. He turned 3 in April. He's not the brightest bulb in the box, but he's always happy. To him, everything is an adventure. He's always a very, very busy boy and has a box full of toys--stuffed (or rather unstuffed), Nylabones, every interactive dog toy that's ever been invented, kongs, and rope toys.

I adopted him from a family in Houston. One day, after emailing a woman after finding him on a Corgis in Need web site, I decided he was my dog. I drove down to pick him up. Everyone thought I was nuts. More than once I heard, "There are corgis in Wisconsin." But when it's your dog, it's your dog, and you'll go wherever to get him. When I got him, his name was Beau. But that was so not Midwestern, that it morphed into Bo and then into Bodie. There are a lot of Bodhis here, but it all sounds the same.

Every single day he greets me in the morning and when I get home from work as if I've been gone for a week. What a happy, happy little guy. He's a real joy in my life.

It's nice to have someone around who views the world as one grand adventure after the next.

Awww, how nice of you to share that sweet little face with us. I am a total fool for pets. You are fortunate to have recognized him.

He's a beauty. I have thought about having a dog for years, but am unsure I am cut out to be a dog owner. Kids take all my energy, hee hee.
