Hello! Meet Gatsby and Scout. They are brother & sister Pembroke Welsh Corgis. They love playing fetch and tug, In N Out meat patties, squeaky tennis balls, and the occasional frozen yogurt. They are the best of friends.

Trying to teach them a new trick that involves resting their chin on my lap. Also known as (and tagged as) the #comeclosebeg trick on Instagram.

Individually, I think they’re starting to get it. But I was being an overachiever and attempted to get both to do it at the same time. 

Conclusion: I need a bigger lap (and to possibly drape a towel over my lap…because drool).

I took Scout out for a potty run and we ran into our next door neighbors. 

Neighbor: “Is that the one who’s always by the window?”
Me: “Yup, she’s the one!”

Then they smiled at her as they walked past us.

Gatsby in action at this past weekend’s NADAC trial.
