"I think Sidney would love to catch and eat crabs with Wini. I give him these dried mussels which are supposed to be good for his joints. They smell like a tide pool at high noon but he LOVES them. I think they are doing some good as he's been…"

"Thanks so much!  Your corgi is adorable.  It has the signature corgi smile.  We are looking forward to learning more about Corgies on this site because Sebastian is a handful; nothing like my former labs or German Shepherds!"

"Please let us know what they find out. With Sidney the head of the femur was fine but the hip socket (on the left ) was malformed. He did so well after surgery though, it was amazing. It was slow at first, but we did swim therapy and he bounced back…"

"Does "loose hips" mean hip dysplasia? If so, that is what Sidney has. His was extreme though, his left hip was dislocated (just from following me down the hallway). Since that left side was so bad, he had surgery and is fine now. He still…"

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!

Vala (about 11) has been limping off left front foot & x-rays showed a bone spur on left elbow. We are seeing Ortho Dr tomorrow, so, wish us luck!
