I am Handsome. I am 12 years old and "King of Corgiville". When my Mom got me , I was a little pup. I was brought up and taught to think that I was ROYALTY. That is because I am! You can tell it in my every movement. I guess Mom just forgot to add King in front of my name of Handsome. But, that is ok. Everyone who sees me , knows it. See for yourself. Her love for me shows in the fact that she named me after her, "Debbie's Handsome Little Man." But, all my friends just call me, Handsome. I am special too in the fact that a friend of my humans, Dara Forbes, who bought a daughter of mine, commissioned an artist to do a portrait of me for my humans birthday. The artist liked my expression so well she decided to make me into notecards to represent my breed, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Here is the portrait .

Here is the letter.

Also, I won the title of Pet Of the Week here at

Pets Place. A honor too, I might add.

This is me "driving a big truck." My Human Mama used to drive the BIG TRUCKS and she taught me to do this when she was inside somewhere so nobody would even THINK about getting in MY BIG TRUCK with ME in charge!!

I am a "FEATURED PET" here at PETS 2000
