Max: Oh, you wanted more than that? Okay, here's the scoop. Our sister Emmy, and cousin Maggie came to stay with us for a few days while their humans went vacationing without them! I reassured my sis and cuz that they would have loads more fun at my house than stuck in the back seat of a pickup truck for hours and hours.
Just think - Four Corgis against one human - the one human who can open the giant magic food box, where she hides the turkey and treats. Four Corgis with the awesome power of cuteness should have no problem mind controlling a mere mortal.
L to R - Emmy, Max, Merlin, Maggie
(Open the magic kitchen box. You know you want to. Give us treats. Give us turkey. For doG's sake, just FEED us! We're starved...)
When we weren't eating and sleeping, we were playing. I introduced my cousin to Snow Ball. The object is to get the human to throw the half deflated basketball out in the yard, where I will retrieve it while trying to ignore my annoying yappy brother Merlin. Maggie didn't quite get the rules. It's MY ball, therefore I always get it. Silly girl.
For some reason Maggie thought she could rewrite the rules of SnowBall, and tried to convince my brother Merlin to play her way. They argued a while...
Then Emmy decided that she's rather be inside where it was warm. How strange...
Using Corgi mind powers, she convinced Maggie that an inch of snow on the end of your snout was a bad thing...
So we all went inside and practiced telepathically linked Corgi Mind Tricks on the human.
(You will give us many treats, and drop some of that turkey on the floor...)
After using our incredible Corgi powers, we were tired and took many naps, then spent the rest of our time going in and out and in and out the dog door until the human began chanting "Make up your minds already" over and over again. We'll need to work on retraining her to appreciate our rampant indecisiveness. It's a gift, really.
Emmy got a little homesick for her people.
Apparently her humans spoil her a lot more than my human spoils us. We had some talks on how to train our humans to better serve us. Emmy also taught us the Zombie Corgi Treat Stare. I'm happy to report it works like a charm, many homemade treats were forthcoming after we combined the Zombie Stare with the Corgi Mind Trick.
All in all it was a good Christmas vacation. We ate lots of food, tracked lots of muddy paw prints on the kitchen floor, and managed to destroy at least four chewies, destuff two toys and give them a squeakerectomy, and let the human know through various expulsions of gases that the food was pretty tasty. I do have some work to do with my brother, though. Merlin still thinks a cute smile is all he needs to get by.
