Hi everyone.............. Hope you all had a great holiday......

Now, I an get serious about our raffle for our picnic this year. Kathy from FaerieLand Rescue will be at our picnic to meet everyone and talk about her rescue. I was talking to her the other day and telling her how I have the honors of cleaning out the house I grew up in (Mom went into assisted living this past year). Anyway, she asked me to watch for old blankets, towels, bed sheets for her to use for her rescue. I told her ' No Problem" So, when I was talking to Andrea yesterday, it dawned on me that spring house cleaning is just around the corner.

So, I am asking you all if you come across any old blanket, bed sheets , towels or anything she could use to please set them aside and bring them to the picnic in Sept.

Also, I will be starting to get more into donations and looking for possible suggestions on what I can do different for this years raffle. I have a couple of things cooking already, but would love to hear from you. my email suggestions are welcome....... thanks all and  have a great day............. Vicky

Chris..... sounds like you all had fun today. Jack doesn't even like wearing bandanas  from the groomers. I finally told her not to waste any on him or him mom. they would try to get each other's bandana off.

I don't think Joker has any weird eating habits, just his dad Jack.......

Our first corgi, Asta, would take her kibble out of the dish, piece by piece, and make a circle around her bowl with it, then walk around it eating the pieces one by one. Corgis are just weird about food!

The Lapham Peak and Kettle Moraine outings would have to be on-leash. It was just an idea for another easy place to get together.

The Demanding One spent the day at the Brady Street Dog Party. We had lots of fun! There was a costume contest (but not for Miss S--- she does NOT enjoy dressing up; bandana is about it), parade, and a blessing of the pets. She got lots of pets and treats that I handed out to those who wanted to give her something. They had a human "Bark like a dog" contest and one little girl, about two or so, did her best dog imitation when the emcee told her to bark like a dog:"Bawk, bawk, bawk!" Too funny! Sophie is sleeping off the treats, walking and fresh air. I hope we all sleep well tonight.

JAmie, I wouldn't worry to much as long as she's not getting sassy about it. Joker will take a treat and toss it around and roll on it like he's trying to kill it. Jack as he has gotten older, doesn't always eat his treats right away so they may sit around for a few days (only when Joker's gone to the handlers) but when my brother comes over, Jack will eat up his un-eaten treats. I moved the VHS cabinets from the corner the other days, and, now I don't know how he did it, but there were 4 1/2 milk bones behind these cabinets. our corgis do little weird things that I don't think we were meant to understand............

will let you know if November brings what I am hoping for...........

Chris--Minooka park is in Waukesha, its a beautiful area, with 2 fenced in dog areas, large dogs and small dogs (large are not allowed in the small; however, small are allowed in the large) and there are also hiking trails weaved through the whole park.  In regards to meeting at Kettle moraine or lapham, I'd worry about not having a fenced area.  Rescue tends to be a runner when she sees something that catches her eye.  So, doing a leashed hike out there would be okay but I wouldn't get to see as much running around and all :)  Unless one of those places has a fenced area, I havent been to lapham ever, and Its been a while since i've been to kettle moraine. 

Vicky, you and the kids are one busy family!  You've got me curious to what november may bring, keep me posted!! :)  We'll hopefully still be able to aim for  spring to get together then too :)

Random question for everyone, as we speak, I looked over at Rescue and she does this thing with her food that I'm wondering if it is a corgi thing -- She takes her nose and nudges her food around, occasionally even flipping a few pieces on to the bowl holder portion (she has a table that has two holes carved in for the food and water bowls), and when she does this "ritualistic" thing, she circles the dish and puts her ears back very peculiarly,  A lot of times it seems as though she flattens the food down too,  I've started noticing that when someone comes in the door she runs to her bowl and does the ritual right away.  Any one else do this or have ideas on why she does this???
