Geri & Sidney replied to Erin's discussion Do you guys allow your pups on the couch?
"We allow them on the sofa, but even so, SId prefers the cool tile by the front door, Copper likes one of the many dogs beds we have scattered around and Connie just wants to be at my husband's feet. Bruce, at 19, is too old to be able to get up…"

Geri & Sidney commented on Vicky Hay's blog post Registering a Pet-Quality Pup with the AKC: WHY????
"I got Sidney a PAL (Pedigreed alternative listing) so he can compete in Rally-o (he now has a novice title). He's also done enough therapy work to have therapy dog title too. I am very proud of my little SId."

About My Corgi(s):
Sidney is our first purebred corgi and we are thrilled to have him. He was born 7/11/07. We planned to start him in agility training, but there was a long waiting list. So while waiting for an opening, we took classes for therapy dog training. As it turns out, he's a pretty good therapy dog, so we stuck with that and never got around to agility. Now he is training as a Rally dog. We love it! He's one smart little character! Oh, and he's undocked, so his beautiful tail attracts a lot of attention - good attention.

On August 30th, Sidney suddenly came up lame in his hind left leg. The next day we got xrays for him and found out he has severe hip dysplasia. On Sept 7th he had a Femoral Head Ostectomy to relieve the pain. His right hip is not in great shape either but we're hoping that with glucosamine supplements and exercise we can keep it healthy. *Update* You would never know Sid has surgery now. He moves beautifully. The water therapy and supplements have worked wonders.

Bruce is our corgi/elkhound (?) mix. We rescued him from the brink of euthanasia when he was approximately 10-11 years old (he had a day or two left to go). He's about 16 now and his only sign of his advanced age are bad teeth and slow mornings. I adore Brucie and he worships me. He's my funny short angel with a puffball tail (thanks to the elkhound side). He's about 18 now and going strong.

Chester is our "tall dog". He's a black dane/lab mix that we got from a "free to good home" ad in the local newspaper. He's also old, about 15 years old. We know his age because we've had him 14 years, and he was an adult when we brought him home! He's a very serious dog and not very affectionate compared to the corgis, but he has been a very good dog, just aloof. We can't take Chester as many places as the shorties because he does not travel well. He's almost 17 now and has definitely slowed down. *UPDATE* Chester had a sudden decline and was sent to the bridge on April 15th 2013 at the age of 17.

In February 2013 we added Connie to our family. She's a little tri corgi who was picked up as a stray and put up for adoption at our local Humane Society. She's a real sweet girl and loves to play ball. She's learning a lot from Sidney about life here. We can't believe that her family never came to claim her.She's got good manners and she gets along well with the other dogs and the cats, and everyone she meets is her best friend.

And the pack grows! In November we took in a black-headed tri who we named Copper. He and Connie were both born in 2009 and they are great buddies and a ball-chasing tag team. Copper is sweet and cuddly and eager to please.

Team Low RIder rides again!

Posted on March 4, 2014 at 3:30am 4 Comments

Long time members here know about Team Low Rider! This is our fifth year competing in Paws in the Park for the title of top fundraising team. Paws in the Park is an annual event to raise funds for the Escondido Humane Society. For years, the ladies who tend to the cats at the shelter had year after year run away with first place with no real competition. In 2009 I thought "why should the cat people have all the fun?" so I formed Team Low Rider. Finally some real competition! We actually…

Thank you for the welcome Geri and Sidney! Her name is Lucy Lou and we love her so much! We have had her for about a year and when she started blowing her coat I went searching the internet for possible solutions, thus I found my way to this very informative site!

Thank you for the welcome! Sadie is my little girl and we can't wait to meet and talk to other corgi lovers as well! I'll upload a picture soon, be sure to take a look :)

Thank you for the welcome Geri & Sidney! I just have one Corgi, a mix. I meant to check "Corgi mix" instead of Pembroke AND Cardigan, oops! Her name is Corgie (my boyfriend's name is Corey and I'm Argie, haha!). I love all the photos of your pack! Here's a photo of my girl. She is still at the breeder but will come home soon. Thanks again :)

Hi Geri & Sidney, Thank you for the kind welcome! Sparda and Dante are happy to be here and there dad and mom love hearing of all the other happy parents and seeing all their great pictures. 

We hope to have fun and meet lots of other corgi's here in the desert of Arizona, maybe even coming over to join some of the California Corgi meet ups.  Not sure how my kids will take the beach (I think Dante will love it, but our princess will probably think it's too dusty on her paws :P) but I would love to take them there.

Have a great day! :)

Hi Geri and Sidney,

Thank you for welcoming Melody and I. We're in the middle of a unexpected snow event right now and your SUNNY SOUTHEN CALIFORNIA  sounds so inviting to us. The flakes are huge and when I left for work, the snow was just beginning to cover the ground, we now have at least 2+ inches and it's still coming down with a vengeance.  wow~!!!!  Oh well, that's New England for you~!!  

 

 I'm really going to have to work to figure out how to navigate this page but look forward to doing so. I work part time so my computer time can get stuck a little. I tried to post a picture of Melody yesterday but failed.

Have a great day, you're 3 hours behind us, Good Morning :)
