"Had our dog shaved and trimmed last year due to our vet advising us to do this due to a huge tick problem in our area - I think it also helped with the Australian heat in Summer. Apart from looking a lot trimmer and being easier to check for ticks…"
"My mommy shaves me down when it starts to get warm and I pant a lot. Here in Hawaii the humidity really affects the heat...My fur grows back to it's normal long luxurious length in about 4 months or so. During the "winter" mom just…"
Old enough to know better. Built a new house and moved in the end of March 2010. Living with a wonderful lady who has 2 fluffy's so there are 4 fluffy's in the house. Tessie and Bailey stayed with my ex wife. Zack and Brandy came with me and the wonderful lady has Gracie and Jude.

About My Corgi(s):
Four PWC "Fluffies" Da Power of Da Fluff
Zack-RH Tri-May 2005
Tessie was a gift from some friends who have her older sister and now lives with my ex.. We got Zack from a friend of Tessie's breeder to keep Tessie company. Brandy is Tessie's niece. Brandy is a big corgi who likes to lay on your pillows in the morning giving you a corgi hat. Zack is my buddy who we almost lost the first week we got him to puemonia. He had TPLO surgery (knee) the first week in August of 2007 and had his other knee done in November of 2007. He is my bionic fluff. Brandy is the Alpha and lets everyone know it. Bailey joined our group at the NC Corgi Picnic and has moved right in. He is quite the talker. Bailey stayed with my ex also. Gracie was the runt of the litter and was tiny for a long time. She weights in around 23 lbs and loves to sleep on our pillows at night. Jude is "special". His litter was hit with parvo and he was the only survivor. He was quarentined for 2 months so he did not grow up around other puppies. He has no dog sense and some of the things he does amazes us.
Hi Bill! Yes! I have already circled the 10th of October on my calendar and told Chef that I'll be taking it as a leave day! It was such a special day last year and we are all anticipating another fabulous event! We had a great morning at herding lessons today and I hope to title Bear this fall. Boy, they can really drive some sheep! Take care and we will look forward to seeing you soon! Nancy, Bear, Tasha and Linus
hi bill, thanks for the suggestion i did check out the rescue dogs but many needed single dog families, and i have two other dogs. my new puppy is just amazing, and has already become fast friends with my jack russell. she is also the only one who will actually jump in our pond and swim around just for fun. thanks again!
thanks for your information on the calender i must try and get one and i agree with shaving a fluffies stomach last weekend we had 43 degree temps and the best way for george to keep coll was to lay flat out on his tummy on the bathroom tiles i would never shave the top because an aussie summer woul burn his skin so easily
morning bill thanks for the kind words yes george has a tail it is illegal to dock in australia... at the moment his tail is not waving high as it very very hot today ( what we aussies call a stinker) and fluffies espec george dont love the heat so another quiet day in front of the air con or under the house and cheers for link off to look at it now all the best
