I would love to hear your opinions, and what you do for your dogs.  A neighbor of mine insists that my little guy should have a winter coat on when we go for our walks.  My understanding (I'm a new…Continue

About Me:
I live with my best friend, Toby. He is a very hyper corgi who loves to cuddle almost as much as he loves to wrestle. I can't get over how excited he is about EVERYTHING! He is a handful, but ever since I laid eyes on him I knew I couldn't live without him <3

^^ My dog brings out the weird in me, for sure.^^
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
No
About My Corgi(s):
Toby is now 2 years old!! He has a mind of his own, to say the least. He is so clever. He listens for treats and otherwise, he is much more my boss than I am his... He's got such an awesome personality though (when he's not being defiant haha)! He still loves everything and everyone.
I have:
Pembroke

"Setting his pet store acquisition aside, even a reputable breeder might not know their dogs can produce it and it's not something you can test for apparently since it is polygenic.  The parents don't even have to have it to pass it…"

Anyone else have a dog with a genetic disorder? Mine has DLE...

So, I will start by saying that I am really very fortunate that Toby's condition is mostly cosmetic. It has been expensive to treat, and he was "not quite himself" for awhile, but otherwise is no worse for wear.In March or so, Toby started experiencing what I thought was allergies and conjunctivitis. Several months and many many vet visits and procedures (and thousands of dollars--I'm dumb and never got pet insurance) later, it was determined that he has DLE (Discoid Lupus Erythematosus).…See More

Hi stacia,  Toby sounds like my Randy, an alpha boy.  We have struggled over who is incharge from the beginning and he is so hyper.  I ended up getting him a friend (Reese, corgi mix I think) who had been in shelters but she was terribly ill when we got her but she is well now and has a will of her own.  She isn't as active as Randy is but she is someone to play with.  Randy just passed 2 in October and seems to be calming just a little bit!! So I am hoping for a calmer still wonderful randy.  Like Toby, he is very lovable but is still too much for guests.  I am still working on that.  Lois
