At the age of 50 I have taken up a new sport, Corgi Soccer. My sister Abbbey the Pembroke Welsh Corgi came to live with me in June . Every night she likes to play about 30 minutes of soccer using Corgi rules (actually just about everything in my house now is because the "Corgi rules", and I have to admit I love it).
The Ball - a regulation soccer ball that she has flattened enough to be able to grip with her teeth.
The Field - the long hallway that runs from the foyer through to the family room/kitchen
The Game - Piel kicks the ball into play. Abbey grabs it with her teeth and wallows it around for a about 30 seconds then with either nose or front paws sends it back to Piel. Then it's back and forth for the rest of the game....until Abbey changes it to game two.
Game Two Lazy Abbey- after grabbing the ball with her teeth Abbey wallows it and then steps backwards for a few steps so that Piel can kick the ball to her, This continues with Piel doing all of the ball movement and Abbey just stepping backward untill Piel makes it safely back to the recliner.
The Reward - Abbey does the happy Corgi dance on her back with all fours in the air, rolling back and forth and grinning as Piel tells her what a pretty girl she is.
