"This is Walter! He is our latest foster dog. He is a senior that was left by his owners at the shelter in AL. Our group picked him up 2 weeks ago. He was pretty stressed out by the shelter and being transported to GA.…"
"This is Keegan. He is a "failed foster", because we fell in love with him and just couldn't let him go. Keegan came to our rescue group from a cruelty seizure case. I saw his graying face and asked to be his foster…"
If you need help re-homing your corgi, there are two corgi rescue groups that are in the Atlanta area that could probably help. If you want contact information, just let me know. I have volunteered for both groups and I can tell you…"
I wanted to find out if you are able to babysit Bert in August while we go to Maine? We have visited lots of local places that keep dogs but I simply cannot bring myself to leave him there. We're going to Maine on a 7:30 AM flight on August 9th and returning on August 12 arriving at 7:10 PM ATL airport. I'm happy to bring him on the morning of the 9th although it would be early or bring him the night of the 8th if it's easier. We'd be glad to compensate you for your time and we can supply his food, etc. We would pick him up on the evening of the 12th after we through the airport.
If you're available, please let me know. This will be the first time we've been apart since he came to live with us and it's going to be a tough separation. I would feel so much better if he was with you:)
We are in North Atlanta near Cumberland, we would really like for Buddy to get a chance to play with another Corgi. When i lived in Florida there were corgi meetups at different dog parks all the time byt i cant seem to find anything like that here! If you ever want to do a corgi play date at any of the dog parks we would love to bring buddy!
I'll let you know what the doc says. I'm told by some of our friends on this site that it might just be a "fatty" lump. I'd like to make sure just in case. I suspect that he was so heavy in the beginning it might have been hidden. It's on the same side of the other one that was removed. I am hopeful that the vet saw it but wasn't concerned. I'm a worryer by nature and if it's a problem, I'd like for it to be caught sooner than later. I'll be on the lookout for the tick spray. Those things are gross! I hope they catch the "bandit" running loose up in the mountains! Lol! If he knew how good he could have it...he'd surrender! I'll be in touch to tell you how he fares with his new doc:)
Richi is doing well. It took him a while to warm up to having a dog to share my time with but now I'm not sure who loves Bert the most! We are so thrilled we have him. We spend every moment trying to find goodies for him:) We've changed his wet food to Ulta as well and I laughed so hard at him. He had some lamb, brown rice and carrots last night. He ate the whole bowl and carried the bowl around hoping for more! We're taking him to his new Vet on Friday for a check up a tic collar and to get his heart worm meds for next month. I found three ticks on him yesterday. One was just over his eye and the other two were buried in his chest wall. He didn't love the removal, but ultimately let us pull them out.
He loves work and the girls love him. He has gotten to a place where he can climb the front steps easily and enjoys "sprinting" when he gets into the grass. He's a funny boy!
We got him a "orthopedica mat" for his crate. He doesn't like to sleep on it, but he can get up easily in the mornings after he does. We've left him home free roaming for up to 1.5 hours now. So far so good. No potty issues and no chewing. He like to "nip" at the carpet periodically after he's finished rubbing his nose on it.
How's life for you guys? Did you see the North Georgia Corgie group is trying to capture one running free in their neighborhood. Sounds like a Barbara project:)
I will definitely post his picture. He LOVES to ride! When he hears my keys he comes running! He is such an absolute joy. I'll get his picture up in the next day or so. Thank you for taking him to the doctor to check on his wheezing. You are awesome!
