About Me:
I'm an attorney and have loved dogs all my life. I also have a keen interest in everything about computers, including various operating systems (especially Windows and Linux) and video games of both the massive multiplayer online type and first person shooters. I was a former recreational cyclist that participated in organized long rides from time to time. I am currently trying to bring it back into my daily routine after a decline due to tight scheduling. I am a fan of scifi, action, superhero, fantasy, and pop-culture movies and other media covering those genres. I follow politics and current events closely and enjoy discussing and debating such subjects with others. I have broad music tastes - alternative, classical, classic rock, movie soundtracks, 80's, 70's, some pop and some hip hop/rap - all depending on my current mood; but when I'm driving, I usually have public radio playing.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?

General photos of Mac, his friends, and their adventures

I have one male Pembroke named MacGregor, "Mac" for short. I adopted him through a cousin's co-worker whose sister was given the pup as a present from her then boyfriend. "Mac" needed more attention and activity than she was able to offer so I had the opportunity to raise him.

I've had other dogs in the past, all very lovable in their own way but Mac is by far the smartest dog I have ever adopted. He can follow all sorts of basic commands (sit, down, stay) as well as more fun ones such as spin, rollover, jump, shake hands.

Mac goes to the dog park every once in a while. He generally gets along well with small dogs and easy going large dogs. However, he sometimes snaps at large dogs that look nervous. To avoid problems, he stays in the small dog section at the dog park.

Mac also loves playing in water. On hot days, I fill a small child-sized pool with water for him to play in. He likes to jump, mouth the water coming from the hose to cool off.

Mac is fed high quality dog food, various brands depending on availability and price, but usually receiving 5-6 stars from dogfoodanalysis.com.

I would like to get Mac involved in Dog Agility and am currently researching more about how to start.

12th Annual Southern California Corgi Picnic - Corgiaid Fundraiser

Posted on September 7, 2008 at 11:00am 1 Comment

Yesterday, we took Mac to the 12th Annual Southern California Corgi Picnic. It's a chance for Corgi owners and their dogs to get together while fund raising for Corgiaid, a Corgi rescue organization.



I'm not sure how many Corgis came but there were at least a few dozen. Owners of nearly 70 Corgis sent their RSVP to attend.



It was held at Johnny Carson Park in Burbank, California, across the street from NBC studios. Though the location is a regular park as opposed to an… Continue

Visit to the Huntington Beach Dog Beach and a Meetup with the Huntington Beach Corgis Group.

Posted on August 24, 2008 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

Mac had a big day today. My Mom, Mac, and I went to the Huntington Beach Dog Beach. Mac splashed around in the water and made friends with several dogs, including another Corgi named Buddy. Later, we visited the Huntington Beach Dog Park to meet up with a group of other Corgi Owners. The Huntington Beach Corgis Meetup group meets every Sunday at about 10AM and later. I counted about 9 Corgis and 3-4 non-Corgis. During our stay some left and others came.

Trying Solid Gold Seameal Nutritional Supplement

Posted on August 21, 2008 at 6:49pm 4 Comments

Even though Mac is very healthy, I decided to try Solid Gold Seameal, a nutritional supplement that can be added to a dog's meals.



I posted about it on one of the Corgi Health forum here.



Details on why and my thoughts can be found on my other blog: thepracticalpooch.blogspot.com.



Also, I took Mac to a different dog park the… Continue

Family Dogs Visit the San Dimas Dog Park

Posted on August 16, 2008 at 7:30pm 2 Comments

Mac and I go to the San Dimas Dog Park from time to time. We went again this morning except this time we had company. My cousin brought her dog Baxter. My other cousin and her husband are dog-sitting for the parents-in-law. They brought along Miki.



It was a first time visit to the dog park for Baxter. And it was the first time the three dogs met for the first time. They all hit it off well from start and had a lot of fun at the park.



Here's a link to the pictures from this… Continue

First trip to the Huntington Beach Dog Park

Posted on August 10, 2008 at 7:17pm 0 Comments

Today, we went to the Huntington Beach Dog Park for the first time. We met other members of the Huntington Beach Corgis Meetup Group. We had a great time seeing other Pembrokes and Cardigans of various colors, sizes, and personalities. There must have been a dozen Corgis that came and went during our visit.



Below is a link to some pictures of our day. Unfortunately, the dogs' active spirit was a little too much to handle for my fun camera so I didn't get too many interesting shots.… Continue

Hello Michael,

Yes, I was at the picnic even though I wasn't feeling all that great. . .I'd been planning on it for weeks so I didn't want to disappoint my 3 fur babies from a day of frolicking and pure Corgi fun. . . .check out my video and see if you can see yourself in it LOL. . . .

Anyway, hope you had as much fun as we did. . . .

Take care
and be well,

WhiteDove

Hi Michael-


Sorry we didn't get to meet; Wally was indeed the one running around with a protective collar. Not so bad for the a recent victim eh?

Oh well, there's always next time ;)
