We love corgis! Scout is our second. Our first, Boo, died in 2000 at the age of 12.
We got a new puppy, Oona,in Dec. 2010. We unfortunately had to return her to her breeder when she came into heat early, and began to attack Scout! Turns out she had ovarian cysts and probably was in pain. But after spaying, the attacks continued, and we had to let her go. Luckily, she found a new home as an only dog in Texas, and is doing very well.
Our newest puppy, Summer (from the same wonderful breeder), arrived in July 2011. She is a sweetie, and she and Scout are getting along fine.

Winter has been a little weird here.Either @60 during the day and below 30 at night.Frost has been really bad.Not alot of rain.The hardwood floors have never been this clean in Winter!!We do need more rain here.So glad to hear all is well at Your home.Corgi hugs Your way :).
Looks like all is going well at Your home :).Scout looks like a happy boy and recovered well after his surgery.Thanks again for helping me thru Merlin's surgeries.You really helped on here.Summer is adorable!!So glad she's becoming a part of the family.She looks like a combo of my two :).
OMG Scout and my Scooter do look a lot alike! And loves the same stuff Scooter loved! Wow... I sure enjopyed looking at your pictures. Boy the one of Scout swimming in a mountain pond IS SCOOTER ALL OVER!! She was so funny. We would be at the beach and she would find any tide pool to swim in. If it wasn't deep enough to swim she would lay down and wait for the next incoming wave! I need to go in and add a bunch more of Scooter's pictures to our page.Summer is a really eye stopped too. I sure wish I could turn back time. I would of gotten a new puppy while Scooter was her to help me teach the new little one.
Thanks... Carolyn with Scooter always in my heart and Pippin soon to be by my side!!
Thanks for adding me :) Yes, my Mr. Hamlet is a rescue. I got him at 10 months. Yours are adorable, too- I'm especially a sucker for Summer's widow's peak. I think it's such a beautiful look on a corgi and you don't see them too often.
Gwynnie is almost 9 y.o. and does show signs of slowing down -- she'll hesitate before jumping onto the bed, or running up steps, esp. after being out in the cold. We provide steps. But she gets around well. Maybe anybody would look slow next to Al. One of these days, I'll wake up and realize I've got an old dog.
Delighted to be friends. I feel like I know you already having read your profile and seen your wonderful photos. Sounds like you've been through it this past year with Scout's ACL and rehoming Oona. Summer looks like a sweetie. Wishing you a smooth and easy 2012.
Oh my, after reading just a few short bits of information, it's sinking in what a year you've had! It must have been heartbreaking to have to rehome Oona. Sometimes we just have to sweep up the shards of dashed hopes and mop up the spilt milk and start again. I'd thought the older dog will sometimes not accept a new puppy, not the other way around. Poor Scout -- first the ACL, then the attack of the killer puppie!
Now I realize once again how fortunate we've been: Gwynnie didn't have much trouble with Al, they just killed each other over and over and over again ad infinauseum. We still have to wipe up some virtual blood occasionally, but at least they don't spatter it on the ceiling anymore. :)
Al is 5.3 y.o., Gwynnie is 8.5, and she does show signs of slowing down. She'll often hesitate before jumping up the steps, onto the bed or furniture. Not a puppy anymore, but basically healthy I think.
I'd overlooked Oona's story; sounds like a difficult experience. Things don't always work out as we hope. Glad you had a breeder who stands behind her animals, and AI hope Oona's found a good place.
