About Me:
I've always been fascinated by corgis from my earliest of horse show days. I love to three-day event and corgies just seem to fit into that lifestyle. My husband and I are currently living in Enid, Oklahoma. I'm studying to become a gemologist. However, I hope to one day fulfill my life long dream of becoming a veterinarian (after my husband is out of the Air Force). I am a jack of all trades and the queen of random useless-facts.
About My Corgi(s):
When my husband and I decided to get a puppy I knew that it was finally time to get a corgi. It took some pretty serious convincing, but I got my way :) Soon after, there was an advertisement in the paper and we were on our way to pick out our first corgi puppy. Since I got to pick the breed, Eric (my husband) got to pick the puppy. He didn't pick the puppy that I would have but, he couldn't have picked out a better puppy. Oakley was the runt of the litter and remains small to this day. She has grown into a beautiful, charismatic, demanding, ball of goof! We call her Demon Seed (Dane Cook reference) because she's always up to something. Another one her nick names is Empress Oakley as she has completely taken over our lives (not that we mind). Oakley has the incredible ability to make EVERYONE fall in love with her within a matter of moments; even people who don't like dogs! Whenever my husband or I come home after an extended outing Oakley will greet us with the most adorable squeeks. She loves to swim, hike, and be outdoors whenever possible. My husband and I couldn't be more in love with her!

As of April 07, 2008 my family is a two corgi household! We have a 14 week old puppy named Griffen! He is just a sweetheart. He is quite different than Oakley was as a pup. He is pretty layed back, but has his spunky moments. He and Oakley LOVE to wrestle. The transition was much easier than I expected. I figured it would take Oakley quite a while to adjust to having another dog in her house. However, she seems to be even happier! Griffen likes to play with stuffed animals, sleeping at my feet while I'm on the computer, and howling at the cat. He is quite the chunker but SUCH a lover! I can't wait to see how his personality and the bond between him and Oakley develop!

Continued Bliss

Posted on May 15, 2008 at 10:29am 3 Comments

Griffen and Oakley continue to be good buds. I do, however, have a few questions about puppy behavior.

-Griffen is considerably more boisterous than Oakley was. How can I encourage him to be less talkative? I don't mind some barking and I know corgis can be a bit barky but his is a bit excessive.

-We go to the park on base twice a day. I let him and Oakley run off leash (only if no one is around). They run for about 20 minutes each time. Griffen is a bit more relaxed than Oakley is… Continue

A Serious Case of the Up-Downs

Posted on May 12, 2008 at 3:22pm 2 Comments

Griffen has continued to be AMAZING. He has only had a few accidents in the house; which are SUPER easy to clean up due to tile floors. Oakley has taken to him quite well. There are a couple dogs in the neighborhood who bark pretty furociously at Oakley and Griffen. Oakley's normal reaction would be to fluff up, let out a few low growls and move on. But now she has Griffen to protect. Now whenever we pass them Oakley fluffs up and barks back. I've NEVER heard Oakley bark like this. Then when we… Continue

Introducing.... Griffen!

Posted on May 8, 2008 at 12:05pm 4 Comments

After a six and a half hour drive through torrential rain and flooding (eek), I arrived in Texas to find eleven very beautiful puppies (there are two litters)! The mothers and father were both on site and were they too were very stunning. I was able to narrow down the field to five puppies because I wanted a male. There were two tri's, a fluffy, and two red/whites. It came down to the two red and whites, but after that the decision was impossibly difficult. One was a little more rambunctious… Continue

New Puppy

Posted on May 5, 2008 at 7:21pm 1 Comment

It seems like it's the season of puppies and new dogs! My husband and I have been toying with the idea of getting another corgi. I was recently looking at breeders nearby and came across a site of BEAUTIFUL corgis. And to top it off the breeder seemed incredibly responsible and reputable. So I put in an application for a puppy. No such luck, she had just sold the last one to its forever home. Shucks. BUT she did have the name of another breeder whose puppies were related to her puppies.… Continue

Lots of new changes

Posted on April 25, 2008 at 6:00pm 1 Comment

We finally got settled in our new house! Wahoo! Oakley and Maggie (the cat) seem to like it a lot. We have HUGE windows that go down to the floor that they can sit and look out of. Maggie has found that Oakley's bed provides a very soft lookout spot. Oakley has met a lot of the new neighbors and their children (there's something in the water because everyone is either pregnant or has one or two small children). She seemed a bit nervous around the little ones at first but now she loves it when… Continue

Oakley reminds me of Sirius, our first corgi who was also the runt of the litter, and one of the smartest dogs ever.
We now have two corgis also, and I like to see these social animals have each other to beat up on and tear each others' throats out repeatedly in so many creative ways. Utterly charming, good company.

Yes, Kate those are English saddles in Oklahoma, while I deal mainly with POAs, there is a large contingency of Hunters in Tulsa and a large hunter show at the Tulsa Fairgrounds (Expo Square) in December. Whisper & I will be in Stillwater on September 6 & 7 for a show at the Payne County Fairgrounds if you'd like to come over.

I have a red & white Griff, toooooo! He's a Fluffy, and officially his name is Griffith, but that name only comes out when he's really naughty. What an adorable addition to your family, have fun with his puppyhood! :)

No problem! Thank you! I LOVE talking to people in Oklahoma too! WOW! Enid is not too far from where I live! We need to have an Oklahoma corgi meet. That would be awesome.
