About My Corgi(s):
http://www.tumblr.com/blog/snickmom Follow Snickers and friends!
Snickers is a red head tri pemmie, 23 lbs, Dolly is a recently adopted corgi/peke/ewok mix same size and age as Snickers (about 4 yrs old). We also have an English Springer Spaniel who loves to play with the little ones.
We decided to get a corgi because we knew other people who had them and they were neat dogs. Jack Spaniels was 5 years old, when we decided to get a corgi pup for him to play with because our older dog did not have the energy anymore. I did not find a puppy in my area that was in my budget, but my older son was visiting my mom in Missouri so I started searching the web in that area. I found a promising breeder with some cute tri pemmies for sale. I sent an email to my mom asking if they could go look. The next thing I know, I get a call from my son, he said they were in the car, on the way, and were they just supposed to look? Snickers wrapped him around her little paw and he brought her back to my mom's for a week before she flew home in a little carrier under the airline seat. My younger son had to leave for Boy Scout summer camp the morning before his brother and new puppy flew in. Poor kid had to wait a week to hug his new pup. It helped to have envious friends around when they got off the bus! Snickers was raised with children and LOVED them. If we took her to the park and she saw a child she would go nuts! We knew nothing about corgis or training dogs like a corgi and so we made a few mistakes that we are now trying to correct. She has always been a barrel of laughs but never cuddly or comfortable around strangers. She is starting to be a much nicer dog now. More about her accomplishments later.
In the mean time, my mom had taken in Dolly from a rescue organization. Dolly has been living on a ranch where she had acres of land to run around on. Except for teaching her not to leave the property, to bark (I don’t like) when she wanted a biscuit and to sleep on the furniture (I don’t like), she has had no training at all. My mom developed health problems this summer and decided she couldn’t keep Dolly (after a baby duck mysteriously died and the hurricane, etc). Fortunately, my older son was visiting and was able to drive Dolly home (this is getting to be a habit). His girlfriend loves Dolly to pieces and Dolly will be theirs when they can move to a place that allows dogs. Dolly has been getting trained and now knows simple commands like sit, down, fist bump and belly rubs (lay on your back), she stays off the furniture and doesn’t dart out the door, and now we can ever let her come in the front yard with us to get the mail without her running off! She is the most laid back dog you can imagine. She acts like a rag doll and will let you put her in any position. She made friends with Snickers and Jack right away, although it took a while before Snickers figured out how to play with her, now they are best buds. Dolly does not know how to play with people or toys, but when I get time I work with her and she will chase a small toy a few feet and bring it to her bed for a treat. Dolly has her dew claws and an extra toe on her back feet.

Survival Collar- Make Your Own (or make one for your dog)

Posted on February 21, 2013 at 8:12pm 3 Comments

I made a survival collar for Snickers. The picture below is a survival bracelet; they are becoming very popular. You can unravel them and have 8 feet of strong rope (parachute cord or paracord) to use for whatever. A corgi collar will give you 12 -15 feet of rope and only cost a few dollars and an hour…

Snickers hurt her knee-ACL surgery

Posted on August 26, 2012 at 6:00pm 10 Comments

I had a headache Wednesday evening, so my husband volunteered to exercise "my" dog. (we rib each other about each other's dogs) A little later he came in and said "I'm sorry, I broke your dog" , and here she comes, on 3 legs. Fortunately, I regularly read posts on MyCorgi and so knew that it wasn't a rush to the hospital injury. We took her to the vet today (Friday), and he gave her a shot and put her on an…

Snickers and Dolly have a Birthday Party

Posted on May 17, 2012 at 6:30pm 3 Comments

I don't usually make a big deal of birthdays, but Snickers felt that the big 5 deserved a party. Since we don't know when Dolly's birthday is, Snickers was willing to share her day.

Please let me know if you're not interested and maybe I can find someone else who wants to take over the reins. How's everything with you guys? I miss you!!!

Hey Snickmom! Didn't you take over the OC group from me considering that Lucy is such a stick-in-the-mud with other Corgis. I just saw a whole bunch of messages and felt so delinquent. :(

Hi there, how is Snickers feeling?

Our 13 year-old Chloe has had her teeth extracted also.  But she manages to keep on eating just fine.  Takes her awhile to eat her big cookies. 

Will you be going to the Corgi Beach Day on 04/20/13?

Hi

Tell me how to post info regarding our Corgis in the Snow event and I'll be glad to do so.

I'm brand new to this site.

The tv story link is maybe the best starting point.  Some other stuff is on our club web site.    We started the club in August and I think have made good progress.  For about two years I'd talked about starting a club and when a lady got a permit for corgis to march (?) in an annual parade / arts festival, I took a clipboard with a sign up sheet on letterhead that I made up.   Just realized our club is now six months old.  That process might be of interest to some people. 

I've started other organizations before and this is the most spontaneous, with a nucleus of eight people with attitudes like "can do"and "sure, why not!"

Tell me what to write and where to put it.

Steve
