Mochi the corgi sleeping picture

Say hello to our little Mochi… You might have already met her over on Instagram (@lilmochithecorgi if you want to follow her dedicated account), but here she is again. I just can’t get over this little bundle of joy that has entered our lives.

It’s so funny how different dogs are. My previous lady pups have been sassy and pretty dominant, torturing Otis and being totally mommy’s girls. Mochi is a little different! She is gentle and sweet with these kind eyes that watch everything you do. She prefers to sleep on the ground instead of a comfy bed.

This little Mochi is in LOVE with Otis, wanting to fall asleep near him whenever she can. We’ve only had her home for a day, but she is doing pretty dang well at the potty training thing.

The only thing is she does NOT want to be left alone, at all, lol. She is still adjusting, and we are just trying to make her feel as at home as possible. 

Mochi’s floppy big ears are the best when she runs and she loves to give kisses instead of biting. We are enamored, to say the least.

song of the week

Song of the Week is Dancing In The Dark by Bruce Springsteen. If you haven’t seen Blinded By The Light you HAVE to see it immediately. I didn’t grow up a big Springsteen fan but this movie changed all that. Seriously brilliant film.
