Melinda (Penny's Mom) replied to Deltina Hay's discussion Corgi in my bath?
"My Penny is the same way.  She LOVES water and I can not take a bath in peace.  If I shut the door she scratches and barks and if I let her in the room I have to hold her back the whole time.  "

"That is awesome! I am glad she's coming around. The sound of a baby crying is pretty distressing for dogs (and humans alike!) so yes, just give her time to adapt. And if she needs a quiet area to get away from the noise, make sure it's…"

Ludi replied to Melinda (Penny's Mom)'s discussion Meeting the baby

Meeting the baby

Penny met my grandaughter for the first time last night and she was very freaked out...especially when the baby was crying.  She wanted to be in my lap when I was holding the baby...which I tried but it was pretty tough...and got all riled up everytime I moved around with her.  When the baby left and she could sit with me she sat in the corner and pouted.  Does anyone have any tips on how to cause poor Penny the list amount of stress when the baby is with me?  I want both my babies to be happy!See More

Won't go up the stairs or jump up

This morning I found Penny waiting for me at the bottom of the stairs (she always sleeps upstairs).  Then when I let her out she wouldn't come back up the stairs. Then when I sat down in the chair she wouldn't jump up to sit with me.   I laid her down and felt around the inside where her back leg meets her body and she yelped when I touched the left side.  She is walking normal and when I took her for a walk last night she was fine.  Obviously something happened in the middle of the night but…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I saw my first corgi about a year ago and just had to have one of my own. I am single and having Penny to come home to is great. They have so much personality and are so much fun! My daughter has two corgis and I often babysit/play grandma to them as well.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Penny loves to snuggle up in your neck and give kisses, and likes sitting on the recliner with mom watching tv. We get together with my daughters corgis Puck and and Penelope and they are maniacs when they are together! She loves the water and jumps in her kiddie pool everyday (in the summer) even if it's raining out! She also loves going to the dog park when we can get there. She is a very vocal girl...sometimes I call her barky!

Corgi's needing rescue

There are a couple of Corgis needing rescue at Secondhandhounds in Minnesota.  Shorty is sooo adorable...I wish I could take him!




Corgi on Farmville

For those of you that play Farmville...I signed on this morning to discover that one of the new animals on the farm is a Corgi as part of their royal wedding series!… Continue

Inactivity after spay

Posted on March 12, 2010 at 12:20pm 11 Comments

Penny was spayed on Wednesday and did very well. They tell you no running, jumping, playing for 7-10 days after and I'm concerned because in order for me to do that with Penny I'd have to glue her to the floor! I have tried to keep her off the couch but she sneaks when I'm not looking...and I bought a stair to help her off the bed...which she ignored and just jumped off the normal way! How did your corgi's do after their surgery...any advice on how strict I should be with the activity…


Small growth

Posted on November 12, 2009 at 5:14pm 10 Comments

Last night when Ron was petting Penny he felt a small growth on her side. It is below the fur, is about the size of a pea, and you can move it around. Has anyone had experience with this type of thing. Should I bring her to the vet or watch to see if it will go away on it's own? Any advice/ideas would be great...thanks!

Just saying hi to the Duluth corgis. I left there in 1976 -- I'm sure nobody had ever heard of a corgi then -- my bro still lives there, on Park Point.
Not surprised that the toad passed easily -- we fed our first corgi a raw meat diet including raw chicken wings and small thighs; the raw bones just disappeared.

Melinda, thanks for the positive comment on one of my latest photo uploads. My boy, Ponch, is a Merle Corgi and Chihuahua mix and his littermate, MacGyver, is a Fawn Corgi and Chihuahua mix. They are amazingly smart and people love their look.
