Clever: Our bilingual Corgi

Following an enquiry through Devon Dog Boarding, we were offered to host Clever, a pedigree Pembroke Welsh Corgi from Exeter for a 5 night stay. After an initial meeting 2 weeks ago, we felt we could give her everything she needed whilst her owners took a short break to visit family. Clever was dropped off to us on Friday evening together with her food, bed and various equipment and her routine was explained to us.

Since Clever and her owner are originally from Poland, we were told she could respond to both Polish and English commands. Eager to try this out, our son typed some commands into Google translator and amplified the Polish word. I think the tone confused her, so we resorted to a happy English one! This morning before school, our children invented a song and a dance for her – she just can’t wait for them to return!
