Pudge warming up for corgility. CORGILITY!!!!
So it’s been almost a year since we had some major storms before a party and Pudge got out. Pudge hammed his way into a neighbor’s backyard after some friends staying with us left the door wide open. Pudge made it less than 1 block before he charmed his way into a new home. He was probably a ham on the lam for less than 15 minutes.
We humans, on the other hand, had a whole night of agony. Misery. We failed as humans to protect our dependent creature.
We live in a neighborhood of dog-people. 80-90% of the houses have dogs. A lot of those houses don’t walk their dogs, but that’s a different story. Dog people are social and nosey people. They talk. And within 2 hours of us searching the neighborhood during the day time and talking to our neighbors — we found the house that had our dog.
The power of the neighborhood brought Pudge home. Everyone knew this dog or knew OF this dog. Regardless, everyone in the hood knew this dog belonged to someone in the neighborhood — even if they didn’t know our names. They’ve SEEN this dog.
We hugged the woman who found him. We cried on her. We thanked her for taking our baby in for the night. We thanked her for doing the right thing.
Tonight, the corgdad and I herded a pair of pure bred terriers that we’ve never seen before, but obviously belonged to someone. We put Pudge away and we herded the dogs and got them out of the street, sitting near us while we figured out how to call the security guard. The owners eventually pulled up, thankful that their dogs weren’t injured. The dogs told me they were starving and their owners never fed them, as they gobbled up treats.
Do the right thing. (without jeopardizing your own safety or your dog’s safety)
Molly asked me what I was naming “Dopey”. And I don’t know! I really don’t! I’m so stuck! I think the name will come to me when I see him on Sundog. He actually looks like a corgi now. He is no longer a peanut. He must be named!
Names I’m thinking of:
- Pono (Hawaiian for “rightness” or “goodness” as in “getting a corgi is the right thing to do”)
- Paczki (Polish for Lenten jelly doughnuts, pronounced Poonch-key or Punch-key)
- Pudge (as in Pudge the fish that controls the weather from Lilo & Stitch and enjoys peanut butter sandwiches)
- Nerdy names: Oppie/Oppenheimer, Darwin, Huxley, Newton, Faraday,
- More sciencey names: Pico, Volt, Zwitter
I gotta admit, I think this corgi is a Pudge. That adorable fuzzy face says Pudge. We will see, he might be a serious business bulldog on the inside kind of corgi… that would be a Huxley!
You know. Once I saw Pudge when he was an actual puppy, not just a potato, but looked like a corgi puppy — I knew he was a Pudge. I tried other names on him. But Pudge.
My next task was convincing Molly that I wouldn’t let Pudge get fat just because his name is Pudge!!!
Pudge got his own Pudge ornament from claymaster corgmama, littlebitofbrynn. It’s so pretty and detailed! She got all of his subtle tan areas. So cute. Love it so much. Thank you, Brynn’s corgmama!
Pudge is not a traditional corgi, thus not the convention of what a corgi should look like. He is very beautiful, but I don’t think he will ever get selected for a calendar.
We would like to move to a place that has more Pudge friendly weather. We have to survive at least 3 more Houston summers.
Pudge came from Disney’s little known movie: Lilo & Stitch. Pudge is a fish that Lilo feeds peanut butter sandwiches, he is important because he controls the weather.
Pudge with Pudge.

HOLY FUCKING FUCK

full size dog
It’s true. I regret not taking up residence in Molly’s household and becoming official puppycaretaker. REGRETS.
Corgis get their cuteness and sweetness from magic. They get magic by feeding them fresh unicorn meat. Sad. But true.
Thank you! He’s almost all black and white, with some tan and red-brown accents here and there. A flashy corg.
Awww yeah! I think Pudge’s HUGENESS came from the Haley side of the family. And now Pudge is an uncle himself! To one cute black head tricolor fluffy named Lola.
Is she not just presh?
It’s hard! From the moment I come home — it’s all about the Pudge. I only make it through long days thanks to corgdad taking such great care of him and occasionally sharing Pudge photos - to get me through the day.
I love that. He IS a smush! Sometime’s people ‘shop him, or draw him, or find him being tagged as something other than the world’s huggest fluffiest corgi on the internet — so they submit these to me. :)
That’s part of the reason why Pudge’s tumblr exists. He’s a huge hamball and it’s a huge pleasure to share him with you all.
