they are not dirty, not wet and she can hear. But loo has been shaking her head a lot lately. On the floor, on the couch and in bed. We have even trimmed some wiley hairs, thinking they were too…Continue

Halloween's not even over yet and I'm thinking about packing away LeeLoo's banana split costume with the realistic thought of never using it again. I bought it from Old Navy in September brand new.…Continue

Proud momma of LeeLoo!
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
We adopted LeeLoo from the The Ohio Valley Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club on December 11, 2010! She is a 10 year old red who was rescued from an animal shelter in Hamilton, Ohio. She is our dream come true! We rescued her at 35 lbs and we really are hoping to get her down to around 30. No people food for this pup! We will be posting updates and pictures we learn more about our new furbaby!

Leeloo passed away on May 13, 2015. She had the best four years of her life with us and we were blessed to have her as a part of our lives. We are looking for our next dog(s).
I have:
No corgi

LeeLoo is going to be a big sis!

Posted on June 19, 2012 at 4:16pm 9 Comments

We're pregnant with our first baby!  LeeLoo has been an amazing nurse, following me more intently since we found out.  She stays with me during the morning sickness and takes advantage of the extended sleeping hours I now follow.  We're so excited she will be a part of our family as we welcome a new one into the mix.  

This is what made her recent diagnosis of cancer and revelation she's really 10 even harder.  We've known for two months we were pregnant and just imagining her not…


Very sad yesterday

It started as a uveal cyst in Loo's left eye.  We took her to the Ophthalmologist to get it checked out.  The cyst is fine and will take care of itself.  But...

other issues in her eyes, the beginning of cataracts and a hemorrhage in her right eye, got the ball rolling on pinpointing her age.  When we adopted her in 2010, we were told by the rescue she was 5.  Test results from her eye and stomach are reflecting she is 10+!

At her initial vet…


My shaved corgi experience

Posted on April 22, 2012 at 9:06pm 4 Comments

I'm not vet-groomer-specialist-anything.  But we did have a shaving experience with the groomer.  I said 'trim her up for summer' and I came back to find Loo cut down to her undercoat.  Freaked me out.  I must have a smart groomer because she said that cutting them down to the undercoat would allow the hair to grow back healthy.  Taking it down all the way and it would not grow back as well.  

My husband and I have had many discussions about shaving.  We asked the vet-the vet said it…


Leeloo and more vet trips

Posted on March 28, 2012 at 12:27pm 3 Comments

Loo has been babying her back and back legs for a few days now.  Not sure if she twisted it or fell when we weren't home.  No running, no jumping, no happy corgi!  Took her to the vet to get pain meds and anti-inflammatory pills.  That's the best part of the vet visit..

She has had a 'floater' in her left eye for some time now.  Not visible when we got her-we checked our baby out!  It's alien to us, but it is growing.  She will need to be seen by a doggy eye doctor and prepped for…

lol that's the first thing my sister asked me when I told her we named the dog Lilu. It works so well too because you can just tell everyone "My dog is perfect." :)

Did you name your dog after the Fifth Element? We did too, though we spelled it differently.

This pool was purchased at a store called Giant Tiger in Brantford Ontario.  The pool had two parts.  It was supposed to be a shell.  The upper part was identical to the bottom and was supposed to be used as a sandbox.  I separated the two parts and gave the top to my grandchildren to play in.
