Our Lis and his story.

 As I have already said, the name Lis in Russian means "fox". And I think it is an absolutely right name for our dog))) He is naughty, funny, cheerful, sly and clever (like fox) and sometimes coward.
And from time to time people think he is a real fox because of his appearance.

It is funny, but I knew nothing about this breed. It is rather rare in Russia. And one day I was googling some cardigans (to wear))) and I saw this photo of a very funny dog. I fell in love with him. He was so amusing, so unusual! This breed was Welsh Corgi Cardigan. I read a lot of information (and learned there are two breeds of Welsh Corgis, the Cardigan and the Pembroke, each named for the counties in Wales where they originated), and found a funny legend about Welsh Corgi Pembroke. You can read it here.

We have looked through tons of Corgi Pembroke pics and finally understood that we want this dog!)

But the puppy was too expensive for us... We tried to find not a dog show puppy, just friend. And finaly I saw Lis in an advertisement! He was already 4 month old and he was the last puppy for sale. The price wasn't big and we decided to take a look at him. On the way there Ann told me: "We will just take a look. Now decisions today!". (She knew that I'm very impulsive person. I say first and think after. And to have a dog was my childhood dream.) So, I agreed with her. Lis was so funny little boy. One ear was with adhasive bandage (to be erected). He was sitting on his owner's knees and chewing an armchair's wooden knob. He was so sweet)))
And when the owner asked about our decision, Ann said "Yes. We will take him". I was shocked and so happy))))
