Profile Information

Gilroy, CA.
About Me:
I retired in 2009 and now spend my days puttering in the garage, making photographs, and of course conversing with my Corgi pals.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Gromit was born in September of '09. He is the third Corgi I've been owned by and what he lacks in a tail he makes up for with his tongue. Gromit is named for the super smart dog "Gromit" in the "Wallace & Gromit" movie series from the UK. Our newest family member is Sparkle, a female Corgi, who was born in January of 2012. Sparkle is as bright and happy as her name. Her brother Rocky is on MyCorgi, too:

Obesity in Corgis

Posted on July 29, 2013 at 10:30am 0 Comments

From PetSafety

"Obesity in pets may seem cute, but it can have serious effects on your pet’s health which can eventually lead to complications and death. Proper diet and exercise is extremely important for any animal. Pet owners should also be aware of what the ideal weight their animal should be at."

Gromit gains lbs sooo easily so I watch his food and treats carefully.  I see a lot of pictures of fat corgis and it bothers me that people can be so careless about their corgi pals.  Some even shrug and say "Well, he looks good at 40lbs!"   No he doesn't, he looks fat and likely will be unhealthy as the years roll by.  Please feed and exercise your furry…

Sparkle's official 1st Birthday photo

It was close, there were times when Sparkle was being potty trained that I was ready to give her back to her breeder but she made it and as you can see she's grown into a beautiful girl.  She's got a big personality and is 100% luv bug who can never get enough attention.…

OMG...whatta mouth. Didn't mean to barge into the Corgi weight issue. But, since I did, hello to you, Doug, G & S. And a big shout out to and all my old friends on this site. Hope to get back soon. Sometimes life interferes with Corgi fun. But, my life, knock wood (!) is good stuff, just busy. Hope it stays just good stuff. Love to you Doug and your beauties. Love to all mycorgi people, and a shout out to Sam!

I don't know if you saw the post in the ARIZONA CORGI group but


Do you think you could make it?

Thanks for posting Obesity in Corgis.  I have seen a lot of FAT Corgis.

I keep My Wynne between 23 - 24 pounds and Will between 27 - 28 pounds.  We weight them monthly.  Then we adjust their food if we see a gain or decline in their weight.

I just saw a really fat corgi yesterday.  She mentioned that he was a rescue and timid.  I assumed he was a recent adoption and so I said something about his weight and it was good that she could now help him slim down.  I assumed wrong.  No, she had him for years.  She said his weight was due to neutering.  I told her NO...mine were both neutered and not fat. I hope I got her thinking. 

I will use this quote you included the next time I meet a Corgi when the owner tells me they are over 40 pounds, but just big boned. 

Note:  The Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America breed standard says the following:  "Weight is in proportion to size, not exceeding 30 pounds for dogs and 28 pounds for bitches [females]."

Hi there Uncle Doug! Mom found this post "what they say about corgi shedding just isn't true"... 

It sounds like Waffles, the corgi in the post, is doing a great job on blowing his coat. I only hope I can become a champion coat blower as well!  <3 Thanks again for all the great photos you sent Mom. I really want to meet sister Sparkles and Uncle Gromit, maybe this year we will find a way to come together...

Has Sparkles blown her coat yet? I just made the switch from puppy to adult food in February and Mom wonders if the dog food is aiding in my extreme furring efforts. 

Frappy hugs & kisses!

"John, I just saw your post about Gwynnie.  Down here in Arizona we are very sad for you.  Truly, Gwynnie was one of the great corgis, no fancy title needed.  Reading about your adventures with her brought me a lot of smiles."

Luckiest dog on the face of the Earth

"Gwynnie and Al remain heroes to adventuresome corgis everywhere.  I imagine that Gwynnie's mountain climbing prowess has left her with the strength and stamina to handle a mere cart."

Gwynnie haunted by the specters of her past on Halloween

"Gromit always rips their faces off before he guts them.  That way they can't find him for revenge later."
