Ziggy took sibling rivalry to the next level the other day. We got an awesome rug for Christmas. It has my favorite picture of Baxter and Ziggy on it-- with Ziggy making the most indignant face ever.…Continue
I got this e-mail this morning and I'm hoping we can help these two corgis find a good home. I sent an e-mail to Mary with the Sunshine Corgi Rescue website and that I created this post. If you are…Continue
Baxter appears to be very special when it comes to treats and things to chew:Deer Antlers - He chews them so hard, he breaks the enamel off his molars.Rawhides - Chews them till they are very small,…Continue
About a month ago we brought a 2 month old corgi puppy, Ziggy, home to live with our nearly 2 year old corgi, Baxter. At first Baxter was a bit stand-offish, marveling at this new little…Continue

It's been a little while since this trial, but I wanted to make sure I posted what I remembered. I don 't have the videos yet, but hopefully soon.
The first thing I'll always remember about this trial is I totally forgot to change our registration. This cost us two run that I paid for. We were still signed up as Novice Standard and Open Jumpers, even though we should have been Excellent A in both. =( Oh well, it made Friday a very quick day, which was needed because we had…Continue
August 18th I was up in Chicago for vacation and I thought what better way to start that vacation than with a little day of agility. I took my family out to Manhattan, IL so they could see Baxter run for the first time. We ran four times and it was a blast!
FAST Novice-- We ran our first FAST course ever. I was a little nervous about it as I wasn't sure what the best path would be. We were also walking the Excellent…Continue
