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

Started this discussion. Last reply by Steph Bussema Oct 4, 2014. 6 Replies

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…Continue

Think my girl is depressed, don't know what to do.

(sorry so long but i have to include some background) So...our family (me and the two pups) has been through a lot of changes in the last 2 years. Most notably-- moving 3 times last year and me getting a new/full time job. Appa has been a little testy since her brother entered the household. Admittedly, I don't think she's liked him from the beginning. They get along "okay"...but it would've been better if she had been an only dog. I don't feel like I can give either of them up though (1. I…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 ;).

Pembroke

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 :)
