About My Corgi(s):
Optimus is our spunky little bundle of joy. We love him to death, especially when he makes his random noises. I swear he sounds like Gizmo from the Gremlins sometimes. Oppy's favorite things to do are destroy his hedgies (we're already on his 3rd), carry around his giant frisbee, and steal mommy's socks out of the laundry room.
I have:

Hates water, that's crazy talk! Talula just recently jumped in the Delaware River and quickly swam back to shore when she realized how deep the water was. It was pretty amazing, I guess she can swim! She has those bursts of energy too-- I think it's a corgi thing FRAP (frequent random acts of play) We totally egg her on when she gets in those fits. She's pretty good at dog parks, but we've been taking her to them regularly since she was a baby. She has those annoying sniffy walks sometimes and likes to eat the dirt when she gets tired at the dog park. Strange animals!

How's Oppy? He looks huge! Can't wait til it cools down a little so we can do more outdoor daytime activities. She gets a little stir crazy inside all day, but hates the heat.

We love her tail so much. It was part of the reason we traveled so far for her. Plus we got to have an exciting car ride home! People stop me on the street and want to argue with me that Faye must be a cardigan... haha

hey! you've got a tail too! did you get from EZBrook as well? Oppy has the same little dark spot on his tail that my Faye has. We call it her 'cut here' line.

awesome! Us three corgis (optimus, talula and coco) should all meet up soon!
Yeah we live in the manayunk area.

Both of Talula's ears are up now! We've been giving her Glucosamine tablets. Is Optimus losing any teeth yet? Talula lost a couple that I found last week. We would still love to meet up. This weekend we're going to trek to MD for the Corgi Fun Fair (as long as it's not raining) and June 6 is the Corgi Picnic in Chester County. The yahoo group has all the info for that.

Does Oppy Look...Different?

Posted on September 16, 2010 at 11:07am 17 Comments

Oppy's almost 2 years old now and I can't help but think he looks a little different than other Pembrokes. We got him from a breeder and met his mother who is a Pembroke but didn't meet the father (he's AKC certified, so I have no doubts about it). Oppy generally seems a little taller and has bigger ears than most other pb corgis. The tail (which wasn't docked when he was born)…


Oppy's 1st Birthday

Posted on November 30, 2009 at 10:30am 2 Comments

Today is Oppy's 1st birthday! It's amazing to see how far he's come since we first picked him up at 10 weeks old. He's getting a special doggie cake and a new bone later tonight. Unfortunately it'll be dark by the time both of us get home, so we can't take him to a park or anything (he had tons of excitement over the long weekend though and was totally crapped out last night when we finally got home). Hurray for getting… Continue

Fuzzy Pillow

Posted on November 12, 2009 at 12:00pm 10 Comments

About 2 months ago we started letting Oppy sleep in bed with us. I was pretty against it at first because I'm a finicky sleeper and tend to roll around a lot. It was tough enough getting used to sleeping with another person, now add a dog that will just stare at you if you ask it to roll over. Despite my skepticism, he's done very well. He finds the spot between mine and Hilliary's feet and curls up down there not bothering either of us. Just 2 weeks or so ago he started doing something a… Continue

First Day Home Alone

Posted on October 5, 2009 at 9:36am 15 Comments

Oppy's just over 10 months now and we've been starting to trust him more and more being alone while we're gone. If we just had to run to the store, we've been testing leaving him out of his crate, and he's been very good. Over the weekend we went up to Hilliary's parents' cabin, and while there we went to the Bloomsburg fair. We decided to try to leave him out there while we were gone. We were gone about 9 hours and we came back to no accidents or anything destroyed! The only thing is that he… Continue

How To Ditch the Crate

Posted on August 27, 2009 at 10:38am 18 Comments

Oppy is going to be 9 months old on Saturday and I was thinking it may be time to start working on not using his crate while we're at work (he'd be alone for approximately 6.5-7 hours). We've tested leaving him alone while we go to the grocery store which usually lasts about an hour or so and he's been doing really well as long as we puppy proof everything (make sure there's nothing on our desks that he can reach/steal/shred). But 6.5 hours is a lot longer than what we've currently tested him… Continue
