San Francisco Bay Area, CA
About Me:
My husband and I are first time dog owners, and ever since we laid eyes on one of our friend's corgi, we know we've gotta have our own!

We found Bryson from a breeder who just retired him from showing after he won his championship (his puppies didn't quite fit show standards so his career as a stud was over as well). They were going to sell him to Japan to continue his show life, but decided (to our luck) that he'll probably be better off being someone's pet. And the rest is history as they say. :)
About My Corgi(s):
Hi! I'm Bryson. I'm an only child and some say I'm spoiled rotten, which I absolutely am not. I enjoy eating, napping, taking rally classes, going on hikes with mommy and daddy, and hanging out with my buddy Picasso, also a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

Wine Tasting and Surfing with the Boys

Posted on July 8, 2008 at 7:11pm 2 Comments

What do you do with your corgis when it's summer time in the San Francisco Bay Area? You go wine tasting with them and you take them surfing. :)

We didn't think wine-tasting and dog-outings are compatible either, until we recently discovered a couple of wineries in Livermore, CA, that not only are dog-friendly, but also allow us to take our dogs to the barrel room in the back to do some barrel tasting! We all had such a blast,… Continue

Report! Our 8-day cross-country road trip

Posted on April 30, 2008 at 3:45am 8 Comments

We're back!

Thanks to all of you who have imparted great advices on us before we left for this trip! We had a great time with Bryson, driving all the way from California through Sedona, AZ to Austin, TX (well, the driving part wasn't so fun, just the non-driving parts :P).

Sedona has a lot of dog-friendly shops, Bryson is welcomed almost universally (and everyone has a biscuit for him!). But we were disappointed that with all… Continue

Spa Day!

Bryson was the lucky boy chosen by his groomer as her store's VIPet of the week!

With VIPet-hood comes an super-duper pampering spa day, just look at him enjoying the refreshing cucumber eye treatment.

And how come I've never won "Customer of the Anything" anywhere??! There are definitely benefits of being a cute… Continue

Forgotten photo...

I was cleaning out my computer files when I found this old picture of Bryson.

It's like finding a $20 bill in your coat pocket! I had totally forgotten about it... and am happy to rediscover it. I had to search my brain a little bit for the day this photo was taken. Read more about it… Continue

Sorry this link didn't come to you. I'll try again..
www.puckerbrushengravingandsigns.com I hope this one works.
You are right with your little girl fells the time is right, she will let you know!! Does she have a name yet?
I'm glad to hear all is going well with Bryson. It sounds like he is going to do fine. After you gave him the higher dose of Pred did you lower it again? It's my understanding that over dosing is as bad as under dosing.
Good luck in the next few weeks :-)

Hello from Nevada!! How are things going in the Bay? Are you tired of playing the waiting game yet? How all is going well.
How is Bryson feeling these days? Is all going well with the AD? I know you are to busy to think about this now but I just ordered Scooter a new collar tag. It is red and on one side it has the medical symbol and Addison's Disease on the other side you can have 4 lines. I had NEEDS DAILY MEDS * Scooter Dallaire * MY name and cell # *her vet's Name and number. Being red it really shows up on her white fur. The best past was it was $5.00 and free shipping and I had it in 6 day with the holiday in there.
Scooter has a mircochip. I also went in to her records and added she has Addison's and needs daily meds.
This was all stuff I had not thought about until I was reading posting on ADogs. Here is the website I got the tag from. They have a Addison Dog special so make sure you click on that to get the discount price of $5.00.

Hello Ivy~~ Scooter and I are check in to see how you BOTH are doing!
How is the waiting for the 2-legged little girl going? I'm sure it feels like an 100 years has passed already!
How is Bryson feeling these days? I haven't seen any posting but I may have missed you. I monitor one site and you post on the other. It seems that both site are in touch with the same group of advisors.
Drop me a line if you have time and let us know how you are....

No her coat started changing 4 or 5 months ago. I remember thinking at the time, wow she is looking old and going down hill so fast. I feel Scooter has been going down this AD road for about 6 to 8 months before she ended in crisis.
Late Feb. she was chewing on a big bone and cracked the side of one of her big molars. When she did this it exposed the nerve. This is when the AD road got bumpy! Not knowing she was going down that road, just knowing she stopped eating, went into hiding and just was "off". Just not herself. I really feel the stress of the broken tooth and following surgery to remove the tooth was the final straw that ended her up in crisis. I remember a week before she went into crisis talking to our vet and telling him something is wrong I just don't know what, but something.. Hind sight, if only I had known..
The first 13 pictures on our page are new. They were taken between May 12 - May 28 in Morro Bay. CA. Boy, I was just looking at all her pictures and you sure see the difference in her total body looks. After her crisis she looks so old looking. I posted the hair coat question today on Adog and they said she has been through a lot in a short time and to just give her some time to recoup. I wonder just how long it will take? She has to go in Wednesday for her monthly lytes test. Another $60 :-(. What do you have to pay for lytes test over there? As always I sure hope the test is a good one!
I haven't heard from Muffin lately. Have you? What did your breeder say when you told them about the AD? I called our breeder and left her a message and she never called me back. So that's that.
I'm sure glad to have someone to talk to that knows what we are going through. If you ever want to call my phone number is 775-790-1686.

PS~~ Congrads on the new "2-legged" baby! Soon Bryson will have a new litter mate!! He will love that! Scooter loves all 3 of my Grand-kids and any other child we meet. She has more friends in the neighborhood that I do!!

It's great to find you here too! I was looking on your page just last night.
I so glad you found ADogs website. The people there are wonderful! They have taught me so much about AD. I post any questions and within a hour or sooner I have the answer. I do what they have suggested and it has worked 100%. My vet doesn't seem to know that much about AD and tends to go by the book.
By the time Scooter was diagnosed she was almost dead. Her internal organs were shutting down. She was in ICU for 3 days on IV. I can't tell you how many test were ran before we finally had the ATCH test ran and hit on the right answer. By this time she had blood clots in her kidneys and they were shutting down. The vet thought she had a turmor on one kidney also. She had stopped eating, ANYTHING. She wouldn't even eat chicken. She wouldn't walk. She stayed in hiding. She was afraid of everything. She would come out and drink and go back under the bed. I bet all this sounds so familar to you! I think the tremors were the worst... After she got in the right meds she started to come back to the old Scooter fairly soon. She wanted to walk again. I just didn't know how far to allow her to go. Once her legs gave out and just couldn't carry her any father. I had to carry her back home. That took us a couple of hours. I carry her a short ways and then we both rested. After that I was really afraid to go to far away from home. But her tremors have all gone and she is "go to go" now. Although it has take her a couple of months.
I still fine myself watching her like a hawk. The last 2 weeks we have had more than our share of Thunder storms. She has ALWAYS hated the thunder. She get scared and shakes and goes into hiding. I'm so worried she is going to be sent into crisis again. But as soon as the thunder is gone she pops back just fine. So far so good!
It's about time to try to lower her Pred dose again. Right now she is getting 1 mg every morning. I find this a very scary time. I'm so afraid to upset "the apple cart" shall we say. She is doing so good right now but the girls say I need to get to the lowest dose she can stay comforable with. They say for her size she should be at .5. I really hate playing around with the meds. I find that the hardest part of this whole thing.
Scooter has grown a terrible hair coat. It has become long, thick, and rough. I look back at some of her old pictures and she had such a nice coat. Now she looks like a old "Fluffy" corgi. I hope someday her good coat will come back. Have you seen a change in Bryson coat? With time and the help from all the girls at ADogs, Bryson will be as good as new!
Lets keep in touch!
