"OMG, yes! Shayleigh chases her little nubbin and it is the cutest thing I have ever seen! We watch her when she does it and just laugh and laugh. If I can stop laughing long enough next time I'll have to check and see if scratching her backside…"
"Shayleigh generally rides loose in the car, most of the time on my lap. After reading this discussion I went out and got leash thing to strap to the seat-belt so she'd be buckled in and safe. Unfortunately, in my little car she could still get…"

"In case I wasn't too clear in my first response, Jack also had firm stools on his first and second go, and only had loose stools on long walks. Since he had long walks every day, though, he was constantly needing cleaning. Because he would have…"
"Jack always did this too, and the funny thing is that if he was not on a long walk, he would poop twice and be happy and not need to go out again til the next morning. But if he WAS on a long walk, he would poop three or four or five times, and…"

About My Corgi(s):
