About Me:
I was blessed to have owned both a Pembroke and a Cardigan Corgi. Riley, my Cardigan passed in 2005, and now my Pembroke, Samantha, has also passed. I miss having them around. I love this breed! They have added so much to my life!

I love animals, always have. Would keep a million if I could! I also have 2 cats, a mini daschund, named Molly and Jackson my new baby boy! Molly is 11 and was VERY attached to Sam. It was obvious how much she missed her when she passed away. Molly always acted as if Sam was her Mom. Whenever Sam would want to play, Molly would try to take her toy to make her stop. Then Sam would get mad at Molly for "ruining the fun". Jackson is a little over a year old, my Valentine's baby! He is precious and naughty at the same time, but I love him and he has added so much back for me that I felt like I lost with Riley and Sam.

I have two young cats. I had two others, Winston and Cody. Winston passed away a month before Riley from cancer. It was funny to retrain Riley about not "getting the kitty" once we brought Winston home. He was always good to chase them out of the yard, but needed to learn that we were trying to keep Winston :) Cody developed a tumor related to vaccines. We made two attempts, in vain to remove the tumors. He passed away before Thanksgiving at the age of 9.

The two I have now are Charlie and Fritz. They never got to meet my Corgis, but they are about to welcome a little brother home!!!! Charlie is still in his "kitten" phase, so I know he is going to love the puppy!

Molly seems lonely and at times lost without Sam still. She was always by her side and when I leave the house, it is torture to her to be alone. :( But now she has Jack and probably has moments where she misses her quiet time!


I am blessed for all that these babies have been in my life. The companionship is priceless.

About My Corgi(s):
Riley was the absolute smartest dog I have ever known. He saved my life and was there to see me through many rough times. I am so thankful to have had him.
Samantha was my princess, so sweet and loving. I miss her gentle ways, lazy days of hanging out or going to the park to play frisbee. She was such a little fireball. I miss them both so much and feel such a sense of loss without them. Now I have Jack! He is his own Corgi and yet has all the things in him that I love about the breed! I can't wait to see all the memories we create!
I have:
Cardigan

Having a bad day

Posted on March 15, 2011 at 3:26pm 5 Comments

I can be having what I consider the worst day ever since my last worst day ever and then see an amazing "Corgi Smile", it just makes me melt! The excitement in their faces when you come home makes everything go away and you have to smile!!!!! I love these little ones and I can't imagine a world without Corgi Smiles! Love them, orignal little sweethearts!

Why is my dog trying to eat soap????

Posted on August 19, 2010 at 12:19pm 3 Comments

I have never had this come up before and I am looking to find out if anyone has?????? My 6 month old pup loves lotion and soap!! Even when he is not in the room he will come running in if he smells me putting on lotion or taking a shower. Today he kept trying to jump in the tub? Why is this??? When I put lotion on I have to make him leave the room because he will try and lick the lotion off. Help!

Jack's ears

Ok, I don't mean to be picky or obsess on this, but Jack is 12 weeks old and his ears still have not come up!!! Not even a little bit!! I don't want to tape his ears up, should I worry that they are not coming up? I never had this come up with my previous Corgis???

Confused about the potty training!

Posted on April 15, 2010 at 4:27pm 6 Comments

Ok, so I have a question!! My 9 week old pup is doing awesome with his potty training, for the most part! Last night, the little guy didn't even want to go out! I made him go out at 5:30 this morning. He goes for 3 to 4 hours at a time when I am at work, no accidents! BUT, about 5 mintues or so after he has gone out, he is in the house, and potties a little spot! I go out with him, do the bells and whistles when he goes outside. Sometimes he will even go more than once and still come in with… Continue

Thanks for the email, and congrats on getting a new pup!!! How exciting to have a frisky corgi fellow again in your life!! Is that his picture on your profile? Is it a Cardi? I will be adopting a rescued cardi in about a month and I am really looking forward to him, but I have never had a cardi before, only pemmies. Have fun with that new pupster!

How wonderful! I was in contact with that breeder when we were looking for Willow. My brother's neighbor got a beautiful tri- from her a few years ago. Good luck, and congratulations! You'll have to keep me posted.

Hi Michelle, Willow is from Hood River, OR. I had a hard time finding a cardi in the area. Where did you find your new baby?

Well at least they allow you on this sight! ; )

I think Jack is really cute. You'll get my husband's vote. My dgt's friend just named her baby Jack. Also Milo, Cody, Barnaby (barney), Jeremy, Vegas, Wilson (willy)...I think I'm losing it. LOL. Of course all these names will go out the window once you meet your baby. Take lots of photos. Where are you getting him from?

I am literally laughing out loud about Ben. Over the past few months my dgt, Lindsay, went out with a few different guys and all of them were named Ben––and they were all super annoying. She told me yesterday that she will never go out with anyone named Ben again. This is sort of weird, isn't it. But fun weird! I'm going to think some more. We didn't name Lucy right away.

My sister-in-law was in love with the name Molly. She wanted me to name my first daughter Molly. I didn't, but she, in turn, named her standard poodle Molly. Years later when she became a grandmother, she insisted that her daughter name her Molly. My husband & I thought that was pretty weird!
