Step 1: Find a Welsh Corgi or two. Preferably the Pembroke type. Mmm… feisty little herding dogs! My friend Liz has two of them, Rocco and Maggie. Rocco tends to freak Zora out a little so he didn’t get to play this time. Here’s Zora and Maggie. Step 2: Release Corgis and your dog into


When I posted before about the snow here in Mississippi, I asked if anyone wanted me to upload videos of Zora’s reactions, but warned that I probably would regardless of your desires.
