Owning a Corgi was on my '100 things' I have to do before I die list. I'm married to my partner of 12 years and we have 3 amazing daughters. I'm a founding director of a non profit for homeless youth and LOVE my work and family. I grew up in Mendocino and visit the ocean frequently. I love to travel, read, do art, cook, sew, collage, make books, photography, and feast on anything culturally interesting, poetic or passion filled!
Dodge in one word... = zest! He is essence of dog all 15 pounds of him! He's 5 months old. His first ear just popped up and he is such great fun! My whole family is entertained by him. We can't imagine days without him.
He's such a well adjusted and loyal pup. I like to be with him all the time and have come to realize that he's quite treat motivated! I can't believe how adorable he is and the silly act of chasing his little stub really sends my family into chuckles!
I suppose all you corgi owners out there know precisely what I mean when I say, I think I need one more!
I've been away for a while! With elections, non profit work and basic busy-ness. Dodger is doing great other than recently hurting his front paw. I'm a little worried about him and don't want to take him on a walk because he seems to be really favoring it. Is a sprain a possibility? Won't healing take a while if so? Any other corgis out there with sprain histories? I will add photos soon!
Banjo's ear popped when she was six months. That's pretty much when she stopped teething, and she was about the same size lil' dodge is now.
I love his name, it's very clever and corgi-esque. Glad to meet you both!
I have to mention after al my research and admittedly a bit of angst, Dodger's late blooming first ear jsut popped up two weeks ago and he is 5 months. Hope it helps other who wonder about the teething coinciding with the cartilidge hardening. Now as for the other ear...we'll see. Our breeder (who is a respectable Vet) kept one from Dodge's litter and the ear also just popped. There is really quite a range for PWC (i've learned). Dodge is STILL teething and that may be a determining factor afterall.? Ears anyone?
Welcome Blithe and family. Sounds like you have a full and rewarding life! Be careful...one more leads to one more leads to...I have found myself caught in that vicious cycle that is MCS (Multiple Corgi Syndrome) I wouldn't have it any other way. they are a wonderful breed.
