"I understand how you feel. I always yelped "Ouch" when she bit me and turned away. It seemed to help. I also tried to divert her chewing to something that is okay to chew...like a bully stick, an orka bone, or her paw if she's on her…"
"I think the "flat dog" syndrome would be better than the temper tantrums I deal with when I walk with my pup. She'll whine and cry if we aren't near my boyfriend and his dog. Such a cute puppy! I can't wait to dress my baby…"
"I totally know what you mean! My vet said that they liked Freya's personality better than the other corgi that frequents there. I thought that was an odd comment, but hey, I'm good with it! You do have a beautiful boy."
"My vet won't spay Freya younger than 6 months. He said he isn't comfortable sedating a puppy younger than that and if I am worried that she may be going into heat, bring her in and he'll inspect her. Bleh, I was hoping to get it done…"
Freya has surprised me in the last week. Outside of the incident with my boyfriend, she's been doing fine and I've been dealing with it as it happens. If Cloud instigates when she's in her kennel trying to eat or play with something, I'll lock him outside in the yard--which he doesn't mind cause there's a girl dog next door that he likes. Freya is really starting to learn how to play by herself. She was growling at her orka bone and scramblin it with her back legs while she's on her back--it…See More
I'm a halfling (Hoppa for those in Hawaii--Half Japanese/Half White.) I live in central Georgia with my boyfriend and his Weimaraner. This is my first official puppy and I am a nervous mom. I'm most excited and happy that our Weim has a companion and playmate.
Freya, has two white spots: one on the back of her head and one on top of her head. She is feisty and very intelligent. She understands the sit command and come command which she learned at 6.5 weeks. She loves food and her kong time. She also loves to hover near me with her brother Weim (2 year old Cloud) when I'm cooking cause they both know I have the tendency to drop odds and ends. She was born on 11/01/2008.
I'm hoping that this video isn't too dark for you guys. I took it when I was at my mom's house. Morningstar and Angel do this all the time--even without jackets. I'll post the strange thing that Angel does in the next few days.
Oh and epic news! On May 7th we went to First Friday in the town next to us to watch the "Three Amigos" for a dollar with dollar pizza and beer. It was a good time. Of course, there was a street party afterward and we walked around. I saw a really large Boston Terrier and then...a Frenchie! I saw my first French Bulldog up close. He was sooo cute...and really hot too, poor thing was snorting. I just had to mention it for all of those Frenchie lovers out there. He was one of 2 in the area that the owner knows about. I wish it wasn't so dark and he wasn't so dark too because I'd totally take a picture of him.
I find it kind of amusing that the herding dog does more hunting than the hunting dog. But I think the truth is, she is a lot more aware of her surroundings than Cloud seems to be. Cloud can be obsessed with something sure, but he doesn't see until his nose seems to notice it first. Freya, on the other hand, actually watches her surroundings. She sees things long before Cloud notices them.
So this evening, I noticed Freya was dancing. I always fear that she is taunting a snake, this time it was a bird. This is the third time she has been found with a bird. I'm seriously beginning to think that she is actually hunting them for some reason. I got the fearsome boyfriend to take care of the bird (it wasn't fully dead when I got to it and not where he could survive with help :( ) and that was when I noticed all these little raspberries growing in my backyard.
I spent the last two hours of daylight this evening armed with a shovel and one leather glove (lost the other one) and began digging and pulling out the roots as much as I could. I honestly didn't want to relive last October again. I for see myself spending several nights pulling out those darn vines, which means I need to get some gardening gloves.
Also I found, what appeared to be poison ivy/oak/sumac or whatever it is that is growing out of a tree in the backyard. The boyfriend got some gloves and pulled it out, which was easy being that it was so young of a vine.
Wish me luck on my endeavor! Oh, should I be worried about diseases Freya may get from birds?
First thing first, Milo was not accepted at the Atlanta Humane Society and had to spend the three days at another volunteer's house. Since that, he seems a little different--as he barks more at our dogs than he did before. I really didn't think 3 days would have changed him that much.
It was a 4 hour drive to Brunswick where we were staying. So the poor puppies were quite bored in the car the entire time. Being that they both have issues with their treats, we didn't bother to give… Continue
I just realized that Saturday, Freya will be 9 months old! Holy crap, where did all the time go? It seems like yesterday that I got her and she's still cute as a button and still terribly independent.
She really hasn't changed much in the last three months. She's a bit taller and longer but her weight has remained a stable 18 pounds even with the spay job. Once again, the Vet doesn't believe that she will be getting much bigger--she may fill out, but not that much. Either way, she's… Continue
I don't know, after the fiasco yesterday I've been seriously considering Milo. I love the boy--he's the best dog I've ever had the pleasure to be with in my short life. He's got the best personality and temperament that I could do anything with his food and treats and whatever he happened to have in his mouth and he doesn't mind my questing fingers to get it out.
But there's a catch--he's got to get along with our unaltered Weim. That's the one catch from the boyfriend, which I… Continue
I'm not frustrated at Milo at all (except when he goes to bark mode and that grates me a little bit at times.) It's more about the people I'm fostering from--they are driving me crazy. Actually, they've been driving me crazy from the get go and I was hoping it would improve but it is only get worse with time.
Initially, they gave me wrong information about what was wrong with Milo. They also told me to pick him up at the vet's office, which despite me calling they never picked up… Continue
Hello there!! I need help solving a mystery :O hehe.....around christmas time there was a discussion somewhere on here about someone gettting a new leash for their corgi and I remember really liking it but now I cant find the discusssion or remember what kind of leash it is. Did you get a new leash for your corgi this past Christmas or was thinking about it??
Hi there- Regarding the Buddy Look Out Car seat bed....I bought the large for my dog and it works out perfectly. Nope, not too warm for him. No complaints at all. Anytime we go for a ride, he immediately hopes in back and gets in his bed. My dog is small so the bed allows him to be up higher in order to see everything. We would also take bed out into our hotel and he would sleep in it at night. very versatile.
I found the water rover at a specialty dog store. They have a website I believe it is: www.waterrover.com. The poor pug, thats horrible. I believe pugs are more prone to overheating since they cant breathe very well. :( Is your air conditioning working in the car? I would think you should be okay, just remember to give water when you stop.
