About Me:
I'm 28 years old. My husband, James, is in the Air Force stationed in San Antonio. We lived in Yokota Japan for 6 years before we moved here. We been here almost 4 now. We got both corgis while we've been here (they were born near San Antonio in Florisville) and once he retires I want to have a lot of space and have maybe 6 of them. I think that would be great! I love these dogs like they're my kids. We go to Gateway church and we think it's such a great little church everyone should go once. :) I like to read (total bookworm), watch movies, knit, walk the dogs, play board games, some Wii games, and have a great Bible study on Monday nights. Right now I'm getting back into cooking and different recipes-it's hard because James is so darn picky! I also like to clean believe it or not-weird hobby but it's kind of relaxing for me. No kids-I'm sure constantly cleaning after kids I wouldn't find so relaxing though. lol! We love to see new places especially if we can take the dogs with us. We also have a couple of cats born in Japan we brought back with us but they're almost 10 and sleep 95% of the time. Totally normal, down to earth and almost boring but that's our life. I love it!
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Both were born in Florisville right outside of San Antonio. Einstein is the oldest being born Sept. 2005 and our first corgi. He's the smartest little dog I know and he's gotten so much more laid back now that he's not a puppy-although still not one to snuggle for long. He has shorter fur than Daisy but sheds twice as much. Daisy was born March 2007 and she loves her Einstein more than anyone. She waits to see what he does first unless it has to do with getting food or attention-she can figure out that much! They both have the same mother. We never got to meet Einstein's father-he was hit by a car out in the country before he was born. Daisy's father was very excited and barky when we met him. He was a tri color and their mother is sable and white. Most of her black fur fell out now that she's an adult. She is very vocal and growls a LOT although she does nothing to back up all that noise. They're both bossy little dogs. My mom calls Einstein the referee because when something is happening he doesn't approve of he thinks he has to break it up-especially if Daisy is having too much fun. I wouldn't have any other kind of dog-their little personalities are just too funny! Well, maybe a cardigan one day. They're a little more laid back I hear.

Dogs don't listen with squirrels in the yard confirmed.

Posted on April 13, 2009 at 4:34pm 1 Comment

I was sitting outback reading a book with Einstein (well, he wasn't actually reading), when a squirrel decided to make a run from the side of the house he'd been hiding on to the fence. He bolted and Ein took off after him and I was yelling for Einstein to stop since I didn't really want him to kill the squirrel. Einstein not only didn't stop, he didn't even register I was speaking at all. Not an ear twitch or a glance in my direction. He was so focused nothing I did mattered. Luckily after a… Continue

Anyone have experience with "Halt" the dog mace?

Posted on April 13, 2009 at 12:04pm 3 Comments

I just bought some on It's supposed to be citronella based instead of pepper based which hurts less and is just as effective. There are a few people in our neighborhood with scary dogs, like the pit bull owners that used to live across the street I blogged about, that think it's ok to have their dogs off leash. I think it's an ego problem when you think you are so in control all the time that leash laws don't apply to you. We've also had a problem with another neighbor with two very… Continue

Spay and neuter your pets!

Posted on April 5, 2009 at 5:07pm 1 Comment

This is so, so important. In San Antonio alone 26,207 pets were euthanized just last year. Already this year 4,000 have been put down. 73% of the animals brought to the shelter last year were euthanized-many on the first day they arrived due to overcrowding. There is rampant overcrowding and San Antonio they are trying their best to control this problem. 100,000 animals a year would have to be spay/neutered to make this a kill free city by 2012. Due to the rally to get this job done last year… Continue

I just read The Private World of Tasha Tudor. She died recently-God rest her soul. Here's some of what she said about corgis in her book.

"There is no other dog that can compare to a corgi. They're the epitome of beauty............They're such characters-a mixture of a dog and a cat, I think. They especially don't like to be scolded in public. They talk back; they growl and show their teeth and pretend they're frightfully savage. However, they never criticize. You're always beautiful… Continue

Speaking of instinct...

Posted on April 2, 2009 at 1:44pm 0 Comments

Who's corgi has the natural herding instinct and who's doesn't? Mine both do-Einstein more than Daisy. We never had to train them but they both will chase circles around us if we go running in the back yard. Einstein gets a crazy look in his eyes and starts this weird bark/growl while he chases our feet with his lazer like focus. He also nips heels and has been known to bite ankles. Daisy goes in circles barking VERY loudly the entire time and tends to stop right in front of you to make you… Continue
