Mad dog!

Here's Fergus the mad Corgi, demonstrating his boxing skills and foot fetish. He actually "talks" to feet while he's enjoying them. Definitely a dog with amazing powers of concentration, as long as it's a ball or human foot involved. He's learned to back up on command, which is funny to watch, since he kind of does a reverse otter-type maneuver. Fergus also knows some hand signals for sit, down, wait, possum (rolling over onto his back), and go get the ball. We're working on getting him to remember to look at us for direction, since sometimes he gets caught up watching the ball and forgets to look & see what we're signalling him to do. I can really see how Corgis would be good herding dogs, with good training.
