"My corgi Harley is 4 months old and its funny how she can hold her bladder for 4 hours plus while shes in her crate but if shes running around free then shes at the back door every 15 minutes to go potty. Why is this? I was thinking of crating her…"
"That's funny because we were just booted out of the club for not showing up. Darwin had the same problem with the other small dogs. He did not know what to do with them. Plus, when we were there it was less like the "small dog breeds"…"
Currently I attend graduate school at Johns Hopkins for my degree in Clinical Community Counseling. I am working at three part-time jobs, two for the Mental Health Association of Montgomery County (Crisis Hotline worker, and a contractor for Voices Versus Violence) and one as the coordinator of the Rainbow Youth Alliance (an LGBT support group for teens 14-18, sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rockville and funded by grants provided by Brother Help Thy Self, and other congregations in the DC Metro Area). I am also working at my internship at the Frederick Mental Health Association as a counselor in their Counseling Services Department.
In my spare time (what spare time?) I draw, paint, and get caught up in dorky hobbies (WOW, Magic, Ren Fairs... I would never admit to these in person... I am an undercover dork). I work out on my Wii Fit daily, and also talk a daily 40-90 min. walk with friends.
My partner (Devin) and I am searching for LGBT friends to make play dates with (for ourselves and the dog).
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Darwin is now 1 year old and is our favorite member of our house. He loves going on his 4-6 walks a day and has learned to sit, stay, "home", roll over, paw and dance. He has helped keep the neighbor kid from running in the street (good ole herding tendency) and enforcing the "no cats allowed on Daddy's desk" policy. His favorite friends in the neighborhood are Kanyon (the husky he likes to take walks with), Bella (the full-sized, 70 lbs. bull dog he wrestles with), Puffy (the Pomeranian he bounces on), his pack (Trixie, Max, and Conner- friend's dogs he goes on walks with), and his grandmother's pack (four jack russells, Sarge, Lady, Tiny, and Hedi). He has found a special place in his heart for herding chickens and loves meeting new friends. Let me know if you wanna set up a play date!
So glad his procedure went without a hitch (minus the exorbitant fees...)! We'll be in Bethesda for the Meetup.com small dog group on Sunday. You should come! Dexter would love to have another corgi around... those little shih tzus annoy him... lol
Love all the pics. Thanks for posting. And I can't remember if I sent a message or not, but i'm collecting data for my master's thesis, if you get a chance, check out the forum: http://mycorgi.com/forum/topics/dog-ownership-and-health, I need a few more dog owners to take it, and I'd greatly appreciate if you guys have a chance to take it. I need non-dog owners as well, so feel free to pass along. Thanks!
I can't believe how big Darwin is getting!! He looks like a more sophisticated, regal, and refined Dexter. We're up for a play-date whenever you want. You just pick a place and a time and we'll be there!
