"A dog will hold out for the food she wants, especially when she has learned that it works. Put down the food you want her to eat, pick it up after 15 minutes. No more food until the next mealtime. She'll probably skip a few meals while she gets…"
"Lilliput is 7 years old, and is just now coming to sit on my chair with me for a few minutes. Sometimes she even sets her chin on my leg. Not a cuddler. But she has always loved petting, and crawls under my bed to be near me. Another recent…"
"Just today Lilliput showed me that she will indeed protect me. I was in the living room, watching the new season of a show I won't mention (SPOILERS!) Two main characters were talking. One of them grabbed the other without warning and threw her…"
"It has often been noted on the sales floor that the large and extra large dog crates are the right size for children. I, myself, have been inside the extra large while setting up the display. Not that I would ever suggest anything. Just sayin."
"Really? That's a real thing? How long has this been going on? I'm trying to imagine the think-group that came up with the idea (giggle.) I KNOW my Lilli would love that. She would excel. The dogs are very concerned with the bunnies…"

Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Lilliput is 2 years old, smartest dog I have ever met. Quite a challenge to a former beagle owner! After much trial and error, I have found that Agility classes are her passion. She shares her home with an old Springer Spaniel who lets her chew on him, and and occasionally with a coon hound pup who REALLY needs some discipline from her.
I wrote to the woman on Etsy. We are trying to design a Corgi bag that includes the color of my tris. Also, I told her that I would like the bag to be black with possibly some grey and red. I picked some fabric from one of her other bags. She was very receptive to my color palette. I sent her some photos of my Corgis' faces and butts as well.
I can't wait to see what she comes up with!
AND I can't wait to see what you bring to the next Wisconsin Corgi Picnic. I'm sure I'll have to have that too!
Thanks so much for bringing me the pattern for the Corgi scarf.
School just started, so I have not been doing much knitting or crocheting. Maybe I'll get back to it when things settle down.
It was nice visiting with you. It seems that the time went too fast at the picnic. There were several people that I only got a few minutes to talk with and then it was time to take a picture, eat, or raffle off prizes. I felt so rushed. I wish we would have had more time to visit.
One of the people there had a Corgi that looked so much like my Wynne. When we talked we discovered that this boy was the nephew of Wynne & Will. Very exciting.
I don't check MyCorgi everyday either, so I just saw your message.
I have been wanting to make a Corgi scarf since I saw yours. I was so cute! I have not started yet because I am doing crocheting and knitting for our local humane society. However, soon I will have some time to make something for myself. I thought if I could get info from you about yarns and such it would make this project a lot easier. (And cheaper since I won't buy things that don't work and have to buy more and more yarn.)
I know I will have to modify it because I have 2 TRI color Corgis. I was trying to estimate the finished length and what size needles, etc. So please send any info you can. Also, did you knit it in a tube? Do you want my E-mail address? Thanks so much for any help you can give.
I hope I have the right Corgi Mom. I wanted to get some information about the Corgi Stole you wore to the Wisconsin Corgi Picnic yesterday. I should have thought to get a photo of it, but I blew it. Can you load up a picture of yours? Can you think of other things that might help me creat one for myself? Things that might help... Size of finished scarf, yarn you used (brand & color), needle size, any tips. I believe you did it as a tube. Did you write down any of your ideas while working on it?
I have been thinking about it since I left the picnic.
Julia: I just saw your question- sploot is when a corgi lays on their belly with their back legs sticking out. when Snickers first hurt her knee she tried to get into this position and couldn't, so I was pleased when she was feeling better later and could do so. Many silly corgi words are found on corgiaddict.com. Sploot is found in the urban dictionary: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=sploot&defid=2342946
