About Me:
Proud mom to Hardy the rescued Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He is the funniest and sweetest dog that I have ever met. I think that they truly know and appreciate that they have been rescued.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Hardy is a Mayflower Corgi Club rescue. He is estimated to be 4-5 years old. He is believed to be a puppy mill daddy.

He has been with us since February 2009, and we just adore him. He has really come into his own since his adoption.

He loves to run and jump. Taking a ride in the car is one of his favorite things.

Things he dislikes…well…he hates to take a bath. He also hates to go outside when the grass is wet, he acts like it’s the end of the world when his paws get wet. Hopping on 3 legs, refusing to move….he’s quite a character! (Although snow didn’t seem to bother him at all!)

He’s a quick learner, but a little stubborn. Keeping him off the couch is almost an impossible feat because he can not and will not take no for an answer where the couch is concerned. The sneaky little monster has now taken to pulling the blanket off the back of the couch so that it falls on him and he can hide under it and be on the couch where he thinks no one will see him. It’s hard to be consistent when you see a little black nose poking out from a very artfully arranged blanket!

He’s gotten to the point where he will play alone. He will only play with certain stuffed kitties, and his version of play is squeaking it, pushing it with his nose, squeaking and pushing. I have gotten him to catch it if I toss it to him. I bought him a frog that ribbits a few weeks ago. He didn’t care for it at all, and suddenly I can’t find it anymore. I think he hid it somewhere. It really wouldn’t surprise me if he did.

He talks all the time. If you ask him certain questions he will do a funny little howl in response. The pitch of the howl appears to change depending on the question asked.

Hardy is back from the hospital...hooray!

At 4pm I was able to go pick up the little guy. It's been determined that he has colitis, and after 7 hours on the IV he looks so much better. (He has some very nasty gas right now, though so it's very hard to give him lots of lovins!)

We still don't know what triggered the colitis. I am wondering if it may have had to do with a dog food switch, since he eats Taste of The Wild Buffalo formula and we mixed in some of the Salmon formula (a sample from the pet store) for a couple of… Continue

Hardy is in the Doggie Hospital! Oh no!

I'd like to be witty and funny, but I don't have a funny way to convery my worry or saddness. I figure the best way to work through an emotion is to write, so blog I shall!

Yesterday was the first day back to work for teachers in our school district. I left the house at 7am, gave Hardy a pat on the behind and a kiss on the nose. He smiled his corgi smile and I know he was waiting for the invite to come with me since we were inseperable all summer.

Due to a variety of… Continue

Could be two titles...."Why is grass so yummy?" --OR-- "Am I addicted to grass?"

I've been wondering about what it is that makes grass so darn tasty! Hardy will do just about any trick he can to sneak a bite of grass.

I took him outside tonight to snap a few pictures of him. He knows that if I catch him eating a bunch of grass, he hears the most dreaded words on the planet..."no!" Those words immediately invoke the sad eyes, the droopy ears, and well, I'm sure if you could see his tail nub he would hide… Continue

I guess I'll have to take some more pictures of Hardy today so that I can hurry up and post them. Finally! A place where I can shamelessly brag about Hardy! :)

Hi Karen... I am so happy that Hardy is back home. Zeppy suffers from that when he eats too much rich food that is high in fat. My ex used to feed him ice cream as a treat and ultimately that would cause him a type of colitis. We took him to the vet and they found too much fat in his blood tests. Now that I have taken that more serious he is fine. Recently I put him on a supplement from the "Firminator" company to help his shedding and his coat. Within one week he was throwing up. Too much oil in his diet. I stopped and he is fine. Beware of high fat things. Take care, Joni

Hi Karen, I gave up long time ago trying to get my way...Brutie only has to look at me once and it's on, his way or the highway and I don't think I would want it anyother way! They have such quick minds and the little devils love to use them!

Open registration is when you can do anything..no restrictions from breeding or showing. Limited is limiting what you can do...no breeding or conformation showing.

Karen I love your Hardy, he DOES look just like my Brutis, if we lived closer I bet they would be great friends! Best of luck with him, you are soooo lucky to be owned by him.

Hi Karen and Hardy, thanks for the welcome! We have a hard time keeping Lew off of the couch too! He loves anything soft, probably because he only knew hard surfaces for his first few years. Lew also talks all the time! We call him Scooby Doo for all of his noises, especially the one he makes when we aren't giving him his food fast enough.
