"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

My New Apprentice?

Some of my Corgi friends have already seen this nutty impish Corgi of mine performing her antics. I thought I'd share these with you as well. Here is Weebles, mild mannered (ahem) kitty. She is convincing Amy to jump up on to the table where I was working on a few paintings. Amy does not require much convincing.

She regularly will move and jump up on to chairs both inside and outside on the patio to get on to tables. I know, I know. I need to train it out of her. The problem is that she usually does it when she thinks no one is watching.

You've heard of a blue moose in a china closet? I have a sable Corgi on an art table.
Watch the video clip below to witness her making one hot mess. I put a fresh cup of painting water out (which she helps herself to) and left for a minute only to return to find her skulking around my paints and things. Luckily John had just put batteries in my camera and it was handy. I must warn you, do not let your Corgis try this at home. At the end it seems as if she leaps from the height of the table. She usually gets on and off from the chairs which are all around. You will see her trying to avoid the other Corgis who are surrounding the table, not as adventurous as she. She actually leaps to a short table with a fluffy dog bed as soon as the other Corgi moved off of it. No Corgis were harmed in the making of this video :) *you may pause my bloggy music on the player in the left sidebar before playing video if you prefer. xo xo Cathy ^..^

Oops! It's always easier getting up then getting down, isn't it, Amy? Well, if it isn't food molecules, then it's just plain curiosity that compels corgis to venture where they really should not be, LOL!

Oh, Cathy, she is related to the Beautiful but Evil yet Terribly Misunderstood Aisling! Check out the Watching blog for the two latest stories on Aisling! :)

Amy... Bad Dog! It's so hard to be the disciplinarian when they are just do darn cute. Now I thought you were going to ban all your cherished pets from the studio???

I have to chime in here after Laurie's comment. I'm laughing because I wish I had a video of the sabotage that happened to poor Laurie's Santa and Corgi eggs. Except I would have been crying in those :) The funny thing is this is not where I normally even paint. I was making room in the studio for a whelping box and set up shop temporarily out here. I can't win. These 'cherished pets' had better behave or if they don't let me work I will have to send them out with little hobo sacks looking for kibble money.

Amy, the devil dog!
Little miss snoopy pants.
She sure has a pretty face, which would be very hard to discipline....sigh. They get away with murder because of their cuteness, don't they?

How cute is Amy? Mine climb up on stuff and I can't fuss. Amazing where those stubby little legs will carry them.
