When Koda first came to live with us, we were living in Montana. He came to us 02/11/2005, having been born 12/01/2004. He came to us from a breeder in Atlanta, he had an exciting day flying on 3 different planes and being crated for about 10 hours (I felt bad about that). My son had seen his picture on I think it was Pet Finder and had to have him. His breeder said they had named him Smarty and I tell you, he is one smart dog, in my opinion. He knows how to manipulate me, especially when food is involved.
Koda loved the snow of Montana. When the first snow of the season came, he would bounce around outside in it, hopping about like a bunny. He would stay out there for hours if my son was out there playing in the snow. I had to often call him in to wipe the icicles off his whiskers and then he would want to be right out there again. We did watch him to make sure he wasn't getting too cold out there.
The funnest part was having to clear areas for him to take care of his "business". When the snow got over 4-6 inches in the backyard, we would have to shovel out an area so that he wouldn't be buried.
We lived in Montana until June of 2006 and I often wonder if he remembers those days of snow. Now they are a distant memory since we live in Southern California.
Looking forward to sharing more stories of our silly corgi pup.
