Is 2 Corgis Chewing on "bones" in peace/sharing toys possible?!

So we added a puppy to our family about a month ago. Appa is doing pretty well with him. But if I give them treats (anything to chew on)/or if they're eating/or playing with toys-- Appa is growling/snarling/pissed off constantly. I don't blame her some of the time--the little one is all over her or tries to steal her stuff even if he's got his own. I don't really know what to do. I don't know how to train to change the behavior or which one I should concentrate on training for different…See More

Beth replied to Appa and Iroh's discussion Sudden issues with going outside to potty.

Sudden issues with going outside to potty.

Ok...so Appa is 2 years old, very well potty trained and has just now started having issues with going out to potty. She's not using the bathroom in the house but is holding it and doesn't "ask" to go out anymore--she's kind of refusing to go out back by herself (this is totally new behavior). And when I make her, she just sits at the door with her ears back like she's scared and I'm afraid it's going to become a bad association or something. I'm really worried about her and can't figure out…See More

About My Corgi(s):
Appa Gene GypsyQueen (named after Appa, a flying bison on the cartoon Avatar the Last Airbender and Eugene Hutz of the band Gogol Bordello) is a bandit faced little monster who loves all the attention she can get and tries to talk to her humans all the time ;). Her little bro Iroh (named after another Last Airbender character--a goofy and carefree yet badass tea loving ex-military general) is a derpy, happy go lucky little guy who loves to snuggle, stay right on your heels, and run around at full speed when he's not annoying the piss out of his sister ;).

Haha. Mozzie would've torn the tree apart. We chose to use a fake one that sat on the dinning room table. So there were no needles and no chance of him getting to it. Maybe next year when he's not only 5 months and chewing on everything for Christmas we'll try a real one. lol

Sounds like smooth going!  Thanks again for the info.  By the way, I saw your most recent blog post, and I hope Appa feels more like herself soon.  It was definitely hard on my dog the times my dad was deployed growing up.  It's hard enough on the humans who know where and why someone has left the home.  Best wishes to both of you. I hope the time apart passes quickly!

Love how your Appa doesn't look like he wants to kill your Christmas tree, our Mozzie would have ha.

Thanks for the response!  Which carrier did you use?  No trouble from the airline at all?  I don't even have my puppy yet (late spring/early summer arrival!) but I typically have to make travel plans home to California quite far in advance, so I'm trying to figure out logistics before I have more immediate distractions :)
