Meet Muffy!!

So here is the latest addition to LPW's household. I have been wanting a puppy throughout college, and my mother kept telling me that I couldn't have one until I graduated from college, found a place to live, and had a stable job. Okay, so I managed to accomplish all of those. But, with my hectic work schedule, I have not found time to look for a dog to rescue.

When I arrived in Mississippi, I was thinking that I was not going to be in a rush to get a dog; but give myself plenty of time to get settled and then I would start looking. Keep in mind that at this point, I still was thinking about a black lab or beagle...
So I went to a horse show in Kentucky and everywhere I looked there were Corgis. All of a sudden, I realized I had to have one!! They are perfect around horses, great temperments, good size, and the list could go on and on. So I started asking everyone I saw at the show if they knew of any litters close by or reputable breeders, and no one knew of anything! So I decided that I would just wait and something better would come along.
The next weekend rolled around and I was at a horse show in Nashville. I could not believe it when ONE CORGI PUPPY showed up... I was heartbroken!! I just knew that someone had found a puppy and she was not for sale. But I was wrong! The lady just so happened to be a breeder from Kentucky and brought the ONE PUPPY to sell at the show.
So that night she went home with us to our hotel, so that we could spend time together and see how badly I wanted her. Well of course I was smitten and she rode home with us later on that weekend!
As for naming her, that was the most difficult part of all. I really wanted to name her Lilly but there is already another dog at the barn named that so I was out of luck. We danced around with tons of names and finally I made my sister name her when we were walking into the vet's office to get her shots!
Now Muffy and I spend all of our time together. She even gets to come to work with me :) Her favorite things in life right now are cardboard, flip flops, horse poo (eeww...), playing with other dogs, napping all day, playing hide and seek under my bed, and getting in all kinds of mischief. We have slept through the night once, but other than that we wake mommy up at 4AM to go outside. She is almost completely potty trained!!
When we brought Muffy home 3 weeks ago, she weighed 5.6lbs and was 10 weeks old. Now at 13 weeks, she weighs 8.2lbs. It is a guessing game as to what color she will end up being. The breeder swears that she is going to be sable (which is the reddy-brown), but I think she will stay tri-colored.
Now I just need to find time to go to the Lilly store so she can match mommy in her Lilly!! Aren't the Lilly collars just too cute for words?! I did go to the Vineyard Vines store to get her one of their collars but all of them were too big!! haha! I guess we will have to grow a little more before we can have one of those.

Corgi's are SO sweet! They are big enough to be a "dog" dog and still small enough to snuggle up with you!

And the name? OUTRAGEOUSLY PERFECT!!!
