"I thought Max was the only one to do that! He loves between the wall and toilet and now that we are having a hell of a heatwave up here in the northeast he lays right in front of the vent in the bathroom for the AC."
I live in the country near Ithaca, NY, am married and have 2 grown children. We raised Nubian dairy goats for 20 years and had a Maremma guardian dog who lived with them and another who lived in our home with us. Phoebe is our first corgi and we are loving the experience of having her!
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Phoebe, our corgi, is a beautiful fluffy from Honeyfox born on September 23, 2012. We feel very fortunate to have her - she is a light in our lives and a challenge - like becoming new parents again. I look forward to loving and learning from her everyday!
Sarah, I am so glad that you have someone that is experienced. She won't be as beautiful but she will be so much more comfortable. Last year was the hottest year here in AL in the 24 years that I have been her so I cut him short so that I wouldn't have to do it any sooner than absolutely necessary. My profile pic was taken in about March or April and he was back to his beautiful self. Good luck and let me see how she looks after her pic. Lois
Hi Sarah, Your baby is so beautiful. I am a lover of all corgis but am on my second fluffy pem and think that they are beautiful. My 2 pems were related and were heat intolerant and here in the south that can be very bad. I am going to try to squeeze a pic of Randy in that I took yesterday for you to see how he looks.
Now keep in mind that I clip him myself so that he does not look as good as if a regular groomer had done him. But you don't want your girl clipped any shorter than 1/8th". Once upon a time I bought a clipper for my job and just decided to try using it on my other girl. Since then I have gotten a new one and have a selection of blades.
The one that I use on most of the body cuts to 1/8th". He will even be a little cold for about 3 days. 1/4" would be a compromise but despite what people tell you it grows like weeds and the shorter it is cut the faster it seems to grow.
I have seen posts on this site that described work of bad groomers that didn't follow directions and used shaving clippers and clipped the babies to the skin. So I think your directions should be of the shortest length that you will allow. You might even go to Pet Smart or a place where you can stand outside and watch and be ready to rush in and say Stop. Beware of one that acts like you know nothing and that they know better than you do about everything. After you get this please feel free to ask questions.
Sarah, Randy came from Linda Muglach (Lin-Kel Nanteos PWC), Leeds, AL. My previous Pem, also a fluff, considered herself a mouser but she generally slept on the porch and they probably crawled over her.
