I'm so sad no one has jumped on the TNG reference...

That's Picard's defiant line from the greatest episode in series history, at least according to me.
Sorry! I slept late because I woke up at 7am, at 18℉, to no power...AGAIN! APCO's marketing slogan is "Always on". Bull!

My sister had a Pembroke a while ago. What a skittish mess of nerves that dog was. Not very impressive on the positive side, quite impressive on the PITA side. Nothing to compare to the lovable, tolerant Cocker Spaniel that we had during childhood.

So if the K-5 is a lovable, tolerant Cocker Spaniel, what would a K-3 be?
That sounds like a poorly bred example. Corgis were bred for herding work & are generally the calmest, most unflappable dogs.

Yep, they will unflappably nip the heels of any creature deemed herd-able.

Its the final countdown to 3000, will there be a cheese explosion? Can somebody take the Golden cheese award for being # 3000.

Only if correctly punctuated -

A wombat eats, roots, and leaves.

Which of course is an overwhelmingly good reason not to buy another K-3
Can't recall the entire thing, but in OZ, I saw it as "so-and-so is like a wombat: he eats roots, shoots, and leaves".

You have to be an Aussie to now what "root" is as a verb.

When my oldest was a toddler we had not yet fenced the yard. We actually fenced the yard more to stop the Corgi from herding her at the edge of the grass than to keep her (or the dog) in.

He did not limit his herding to children. FWIW, often on my way to the detatached garage he nipped my outer ankle bone. Hard. Never broke skin, though I never figured out how he avoided that.

My uncle had a Weimariner like that. If she felt the kids were wandering off or playing too roughly, she would walk over and pinch them on the arm, thigh or foot. Never hard enough to even hurt but enough to slow them down to her understanding of what was acceptable behavior. And boy did she like cheese

The temperature is minus 11 degrees C in Ottawa right now - that's why I am not buying a K-3.

Lemmesee... I won't buy a K-3 'cause I won't buy one until I buy one - if I buy one.

And it has been above 0 C here for weeks and weeks, which is totally unnatural (and quite comfortable). So that's a reason too.

Temperature will drop in the coming week, though. Will be too cold to buy anything then.

I wish, it's -24C in the Peg - and there are no K-3's to be had here (at least when I wanted one, 'cos mine had to be brought in).
