Just when I thought Ginger had done it all, she surprises me once again.  She has broken both upper molars...slab fractures is what the vet calls it.  She sheared off the entire side of both teeth. …Continue

Possible UTI??

So today, Ginger had been peeing A LOT more than normal.  Tonight, we noticed that the urine was very dark and we think there is blood in it.  I'm thinking she has a UTI.  She's being her normal,…Continue

I just bought Ginger her first bag of adult dog food.  My little baby is growing up.  I'm sad and want to cry a little :(  Am I the only crazy one this has happened to?

I apologize up front for the somewhat graphic nature of this post.  Ginger has normal poohs, until we take her for a walk.  She will go 3 or 4 times within the first 20 minutes and each time they get…Continue

Slab Fracture on Molars

Just when I thought Ginger had done it all, she surprises me once again.  She has broken both upper molars...slab fractures is what the vet calls it.  She sheared off the entire side of both teeth.  This means oral surgery to have them removed since the nerves are exposed.  She's not even 2 and this will be her 3rd surgery (spay, bladder surgery to remove 13 stones, and now the teeth).  Just curious if anyone else's corgi's have had this done and what the recovery time looks like.  She's always…See More

About Me:
I am a Corgi lover, and have been for quite a few years. In 2001 I rescued a Corgi/Chow mix from the pound and fell in love. Lady had the personality and build of a Corgi, but the fur and black tongue of a Chow. Unfortunately she is no longer with me. I will be getting my first purebred Corgi in September and I can't wait!

On a more personal, less dog-related note, my husband and I have been married for almost 2 years. I work as an accountant, not necessarily what I thought I would do when I grew up, but it pays the bills. I love sports of all kinds, working out, and not taking life too seriously.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
No
About My Corgi(s):
I will be getting my first purebred Corgi in September and I'm so excited. It looks like she's going to be a red/white and we're naming her Ginger. I can't wait to get her home!

My baby is 1 today!!!

Posted on June 29, 2011 at 3:02pm 15 Comments

Today is Ginger's first birthday.  Man, how time flies!  I can't believe that it was a year ago that I was waiting anxiously for her to be born.  It's been a crazy year, as she's on the high-strung end of the corgi personality spectrum, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!  I'm picking up her birthday cake after work from a doggy bakery.  Hopefully I can upload some pictures tonight.  I keep telling my husband it's time to get another one, but he's not having any of it! :)  Happy Birthday… Continue

Love My Vet, But Wish We Weren't There So Much

Posted on April 10, 2011 at 5:08pm 4 Comments

So today, while I was putting groceries away, Ginger found a piece of Extra Sugar-Free gum, which contains xylitol.  When I found her, I could only find half the stick.  I panicked and called the vet.  They told me to bring her in right away so they could check her out and induce vomiting.  It normally takes almost half an hour to get to our vet and I think I made it in 15 minutes.  They gave her the stuff and we waiting for her to throw up.  They found a couple itty-bitty pieces of gum.  The… Continue

Ginger lost her first tooth!

Posted on November 3, 2010 at 9:38pm 3 Comments

I just had to share, I'm so excited! She's been kind of grumbly and really bitey lately and tonight when she was pitching a fit I noticed that she had a blank spot on her bottom jaw where a tiny little puppy tooth used to be.

Here's to the changing back hair stripe! How funny that this area is making itself known! I'd think it would have been more of an all-over, gradual change. Ginger is a CUTIE!

Yup, you guessed right! Our Sebastien is a Wind Dial baby. Ginger looks like a cutie! I see a resemblance in the face for sure :D
