Look at these sweet looking girls. They need homes.Barbie, the first dog, was in a shelter that was gonna euthanize her because she was such a fearful dog until she was pulled and given another…Continue
"I live in CA and it's pretty hot here in the central valley. We've had 106+ degree days and the nights are in the high 70's. It's supposed to be 109 degrees on Wednesday. Yeeeaah I think it's hot here.....so, I…"
Calling all Corgi owners! There is nothing better than seeing a group of fluffy bear-butts running around in grass that is taller than their legs. I would love to start a group with my Welsh Corgi, Bella, and have her meet some new friends! We'll meet once to twice a month at Woodward Park to get together and let our dogs play. We can also meet at Starbucks down the street (they allow dogs on their patio) for some food and drink afterward.See More
"I don't agree about big dogs in a small living environment.
I've been in apartments where the dog takes up all the available room left. The apartment was a nice size but, after furniture and everything else, the available space…"
"Corgis are small enough dogs to be able to do well in apartments compare to say a.....great dane. So, yeah corgis should do well in an apartment as long as they get the proper exercise that they need.
Now, I don't agree with the belief that…"
"Not true. Just because she's a runt doesn't mean she is taking longer to potty train in the peeing department than a puppy that was not a runt. Some dogs just take longer to potty train.
Chucky was totally NOT the runt of the litter and he…"
"He could be chewing because he's bored. Smart dogs can become destructive when their brains are not properly stimulated and they have to find their own ways of entertaining themselves. Unfortunately, that's how they entertain…"
"Yeah....this is the reason why a lot of dogs end up at the pound.
People see you with your well-behaved dog and think that 'Wow! These dogs are so nice and well-behaved! I should get a dog of that breed' or whatever.
When in reality, they…"
"I finally signed up for it last year after considering how much money I could save if I'm able to test-try the treats with Chucky to see if he likes it first before I would consider buying a specific brand of treats.
We all know how expensive…"
"I wasn't impressed with the furminator too. Fortunately, I got it on amazon for $15. Could've probably got it for cheaper but, I feel safer shopping with amazon and they had the (at that time) if you purchase up to $25, shipping is free.…"
I adore my boys! They are the complete opposites in their personalities and size.
Chucky, my red boy, is a relaxed dude who likes to pretend Freddy doesn't exist. He's a normal size corgi but, stubborn as heck! Initially, I thought it was my inexperience as a first time dog owner that it was taking me so long to train him. But nope, he only does what I tell him to do when he wants to do it. If he doesn't want to do what I say, he pretends he doesn't hear and swaggers away from me as if I wasn't talking to him.
Nobody believes me when I say that. Especially my family. They always say I just let him do what he wants. I tell them that if they think they can do better than me, he's all theirs to train. Eventually, after spending time with him, they realize that it's true. If he wants to do what they say, he'll do it, but if he has a different agenda from theirs then his agenda is his FIRST priority.
His only interests are gopher holes, digging in them, and SQUIRRELS! Oh, and chasing the chickens away from their food so HE could eat it! It drives me nuts!
However, I trust him completely. I know that he would not attack the chickens, chicks, squirrels (he just loves the chase), cats, other dogs, and basically any creature that doesn't do him any harm.
He's quite exclusive in who he adores. If he doesn't adore you, you don't exist in his world.
Chucky lives in his own world. If he were human he would be called selfish. He only cares and gives attention to who and what he cares about.
Freddy is a tri-colored corgi. He's the anti-Chucky and he's a small corgi. Everybody that see him calls him a puppy. I'm always saying, "He's not a puppy."
He loves everybody. He's very obedient and easy to train. He lives to please and loves praises. Chucky would be like 'Whatever. I did it because you had something I wanted, so drop the treat NOW.'
Freddy would be like 'Oh my god! Oh my god! Did I make you happy? Did I?! Did I?!'
He's always ready for action. Walk? He's ready. Play? He's ready. Going out to do chores? He's ready. Annoy Chucky? He's ready.
However, Freddy needs to be closely monitored if there are weaker creatures around. He has a high prey drive. I don't trust him if I'm not there to monitor him.
Thanks for the add! I tend to get bored at work so that's when I do all my puppy researching LOL. My family thinks I'm crazy because I'm preparing so much! But it's something fun to do while I wait for my pup to come home! :)
