Hi, all. Our family is driving from Houston TX to the mountains in New Mexico later this month to go snowboarding and we're taking the corgis with us (they're excellent car/hotel travelers, having…Continue
"Thanks so much for all of the helpful replies! I'm glad to hear that Fred's coat should be fine, and I'll definitely keep an eye out for any snowballs in the dogs' pads. I'm hoping they'll love the snow and…"
"Very seldom use coats...only when the wind chill is -10 or colder and wind. They'll be fine and much more fun rolling in the snow without a coat! We are having a blizzard tonight and it hasn't bothered mine axcept I limit the time outside."
"I have two corgi's, one with each type of fur as yours. Both do absolutely fine in the snow and cold here in Iowa. If you're just going on short walks, you should be fine. Only issue we've had is a snow ball getting…"
"I live in Winter Park, CO. I have a pembroke who is almost 3 yrs old & I never put a coat on him - even at 30 below zero. I might put booties on him then however :) I also rescued a blue heeler/corgi mix that moved here from Phoenix. He is doing…"
"My Madison has a soft, open coat that takes a long time to dry. Jack's is the more traditional coat like your Betsy's.
My experience is that neither needs any snow protection. The undercoat is so dense that no body heat…"
Hi, all. Our family is driving from Houston TX to the mountains in New Mexico later this month to go snowboarding and we're taking the corgis with us (they're excellent car/hotel travelers, having logged over 7000 miles in the last 2 years!). For the first time, they'll be out in snowy conditions--probably not much more than for their daily walks near the hotel, but maybe some other excursions as well. Betsy's coat is short, smooth and dense and repels water like crazy. We can give her a…See More
"Long reply--sorry, but these recent posts about bonding have really prompted a lot of thoughts for me recently!
Both of our corgis were rescued as adults, so I can’t relay any experiences or advice regarding the puppy stage. But I can…"
"I love the idea of a page-a-day calendar full of corgis. I'm just confused about the cost/production aspects. Does it really cost $15K up front to get the calendar printed? Are there any other options? In case it's…"
"I can't believe how grown up they look already! It seems like just yesterday they were little roly-poly puppies. What a handsome pair they make, and I'm so glad that they have brought such joy to your lives. It sounds as…"
"Sam, I had to re-read your post 3 times to grasp what you were saying about Vienna. That is unbelievably heart-breaking, and seems so profoundly unfair. I know, though, that the rest of her time will be filled to the brim with as…"
":-( :-( :-(
I'm so, so sorry, Sam. Mocha will never be forgotten--certainly not by all those who were lucky enough to know him in person, nor by those of us who got to know him through MyCorgi. Hugs to Vienna…"
I live with my husband and two kids in southeast Texas.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
We have two corgis, both rescues. Our corgi girl is Betsy, a red and white Pembroke we rescued from a local shelter in late 2009. She's smart, beautiful, well-trained (but with just enough of that female bossy streak, LOL) and a complete joy. We recently adopted Freddy from a shelter in Louisiana. He's a big, burly tri-colored pembroke, very easy-going and eager to please. He enjoys having Betsy show him the rules of the house and happily follows her on our walks. And Betsy greatly enjoys her role as big sister and "teacher". They have recently started frapping and playing together like true brother and sister. We're so happy to have them both!
I am new to mycorgi.com and just looking at your photos or your Sweet fur-kids. What a couple of characters they are!! lol They are so cute together!! We have a beautiful Red and White PWC in California waiting for our return and just got a new baby Tri boy to take back to Cali with us and soon as my husband and I get thru with our cancer treatments here at MD Anderson. Our fur-baby's name is Hogan Dahy (little lad, quick and agile). As soon as we get his puppy shots all in order we hope to take him to some meet-ups to get acquainted with other babies. He's now 12 weeks old. : ))
Hello, again! My wife had a job fair in Pearland this morning, but Bronwyn and I came along for the ride and went to the dog park at Independence Park while waiting for my wife. The park was quiet, and the only other dogs there were two min-pins. We had a good experience and my wife seems more open to going to Bay Area Park with Bronwyn in the future. We're pretty busy the first part of next week, but I'm thinking maybe Thursday or Friday evening might be a good time.
Sounds like you had fun with the big group today...
