Rigby finds a 90 degree carrot

"If I grew carrots I would never get to harvest them...my 2 corgis would dig them up and eat them."

"I am so sorry you are going through this.  Hope Rigby is better soon.  I read so many of these stories about dogs getting attacked it makes me very leary to talk our corgi on a walk.  In fact in our neighborhood I avoid streets where…"

"Where does one get one of these stun guns? We are over run with very bold, aggressive wild fishers (like wolverines). They are a bit smaller than your average corgi, but much more aggressive. They will go after anything. I would feel much safer…"

"A squirt bottle loaded with ammonia will do the job. Aim for the face. Hair spray may also work -- often contains alcohol. Can you walk some other route that will take you nowhere near these idiots' property? Cassie was pounced by a German…"

"I'm glad it went to the police.  They didn't use to be so responsive but times have changed.  I can understand you wanting to have her arrested but hopefully a visit by a marked police car will wake her up.  Especially if…"

"I tried to report this incident to our village and was told to call the police. The officer asked me if I wanted the owner arrested on two counts, since there were two dogs! I was a bit shocked. I didn't know she could be arrested just on my…"

"I bet Rigby will get over it quickly, but he will pick up on your energy if you stay anxious. Eyeball some new neighborhoods to walk in and greet and get barked at by different dogs, itll be good for both of you. Even just going to a park and…"

"I'd get a stun gun...one that you just touch the prongs to the attacker.  These are made for humans, but if this keeps occurring, I'd zap them.  Once should teach them to leave you alone."

Linda replied to Dawn Petersen's discussion Need advice for recovering after a dog attack
"Glad that you are reporting them....they are a tragedy waiting to happen.  People who have dogs like that always say it's the first time.  Pepper spray is also illegal here in NY.  What I do is carry a small sized air freshener,…"

"Thank you all of your suggestions and for your support! Rigby seems to be doing good, but of course was on alert when we headed out for our walk last night. He heard the bully dogs barking at another dog who happened to be walking by, and then he…"

About My Corgi(s):
Rigby is our first corgi, born the end of June 2012. We are completely in love with him! He's a tri-color pembroke who doesn't understand why the cat doesn't want to play. Instead of his bed, he'd rather pull down our hoodies and sleep on them. He loves play time with his human brothers and enjoys running and weaving through our privet.

Pembroke
