Smile because you can and you deserve to be happy. You are special, you are worth it, and most importantly, you are loved. Have a great day. xx
"Aroouugh— awuff woof wuff woof woof woof"
(Awwww- thanks for such a kind note. I am happy to be loved, as long as there is cheese as well!)
once-upon-a-wednesday-7 asked: Hi Hazel! It's your bud Hannah, I just got a tumblr. Hazel, I was wondering how many followers you have!
"Awoof, raroof woof wuff woof woof wuff woof!"
(Hello, Hannah, and welcome to tumblr! All of my followers are very kind, and most of them are corgi- people. My problem is that I can’t count!)
xloup-garou asked: I aspire to be like you one day. You are my hero.
"Raouf? Awoo raruff woof wraruff woof woof woof!"
(Are you sure you want to be like me? I have body-image issues as I am only 11 inches tall, I am arthritic, and my greatest skill is to hold still and do nothing! Then again, that is all I have to do to get great treats….and I am honored to be your hero!)
alovelydashofally asked: Every time I see you on my dash I smile! You are just to dang cute! You always make my day better. I have 3 pups myself, but nun can balance things on there heads. I'm trying though! I hope you have a happy and safe Christmas!! Hope to see your sweet face on my dash again soon!! --Ally:)
"Aroo-woof! Awuff rouf roof woof raroof woof."
(Thanks— I am happy to make you smile! Don’t worry about those pups, their balancing skills will come along with age. Merry Christmas to you, too!)
snickmom asked: I love your snowball picture! It really shows off your beauty. And purple is your color, girl!
"Aroo! Raruff woof woof-ruff."
(Thanks! My mama likes me in purple, too!)
michcarlyle asked: Hazel - how long does a typical photo shoot take? Does it take you some time to get into the right mood?Or are you naturally photogenic and ready to have your photo captured at any time?
"Woof woof ! Awoof woof wuff woof!"
(It rarely takes more than fifteen seconds or so, as I am always in the mood for more cheese, even when asleep! Sometimes heavier objects, or the disturbances created by the other dogs, will slow things down to about thirty seconds.
aliciahannahnaomi asked: Hi Hazel. I just wanted to say that when your little face pops up on my dash it makes my day! I have recently become a corgi lover and hope to have a corgi of my own one day in the future. Please thank your assistant for facilitating your fantastic talent and sharing it with us all. It was a very kind thing to do. I hope you'll have a lovely christmas and get spoiled with some delicious treats!
"Aroo! woof! Awoof wuff woof raroof rooruff wuff woof!"
(Thank you so much for the kind words— of course I do it for the cheese, but it is also gratifying to know that balancing things makes other people happy as well! My assistant does a good job mainly because he responds well to my training techniques.)
freekarma asked: Hi Hazel :') my name is Toby and I am also a corgi, today my photographer gave me a daisy chain crown to balance. Have you tried that before?
"Awuff raruff, woof woof"
(I have not, but did do a ring of apple blossoms last spring. Congrats— a daisy chain crown is a good idea!)
bumswagfordays asked: For making this blog. I love you.

theappleprince asked: Hi Hazel! I'm sure this has been asked before but I'm having a hard time finding it, what drove your assistant to start putting things on your head and taking photos of it?
"Woof -woof; awoof woof woof"
(He was sending pictures to cheer up my mama, who missed me when she was at college.)
kappapond asked: What do your other dog friends think when they see things on Hazel's head?
"Woof araruff garoom garoo woof wuff woof"
(They know that cheese is on the way and immediately attempt to photobomb the post.)
castielandhisjinglebells asked: When/how did you realize you had a talent for balance?
"Aroof raroo wuff woof woof wraroo."
(I always had this talent— my photographic assistant only figured it out two years ago.)
