I'm completely obsessed with balls and frisbees. I also enjoy eating ice, shreding toys, playing with my favorite friends, and getting oodles of attention at Petsmart when i go to work with mom. We do lots of training too. Obedience, (so i know how to be a good boy) and Tricks (so i can show off). Our training is pretty intensive so i don't drive my mom nuts!
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Warhol came from a wonderful breeder from Pineville Louisiana. Both his mom and dad were champion show dogs named Dice, and Chloe. He turned 1 year old June 3rd 2009. He came into my life August 28th 2008, and i have not since spent a day without him. I've wanted a Cardigan Corgi for nearly two years now, so i'm really enjoying my time spent with him being my companion, and having a blast with training. He's a smarty.
Hi! There are actually a few Cardis in Lafayette. The family we got Mr. Spock from is local, and they had three litters about 4-6 years ago. Sadly, Mr. Spock's mom had a back injury and passed away about 2 months ago. I see a few at the the Pet Daycare (Pet Resort) at the Lafayette Animal Veterinary Clinic, and I know of two others.
Warhol is adorable. Aren't Cardis' awesome? We really need to try for a corgi Meetup at the Dog park one day. I'll call all my corgi friends (pem and cardi).
happy belated to Warhol!! He is so cute! I'm going to start a Louisiana Corgis group, you should join us! :) My brother lives in Lafayette, I'm from Alexandria, but my husband and I live in Shreveport now. Maybe we'll be able to have a meetup somehow, if I can get enough people :)
I'm glad he's doing better without having to get surgery. Finn is like that right now. He'll be fine but if he runs for a while or jumps around while playing with his toys he'll end up limping again. It never seems to stop him. :)
We do plan on doing the intermediate class next but we need to get him neutered first. Because he has a retained testicle, it's more surgery and longer healing time so we want to make sure his good as new before enrolling him. We just got him back from staying at my Mom's while we were on our honeymoon and he is limping so we'll have to make sure there isn't a problem in his hips or knees too. Speeking of knees, how is Warhol's knee?
We gave in and bough the green hoodie for Finn because it was on sale for something like $12. :) We got a bigger size so it will fit him as an adult so in the picture he's swimming in it but I thought you might get a kick out of it.
That is a bit pricy for something he'll grow out of in a month, but it is very cute. :)
I did have one other issue I wanted to get your opinion on. We asked Finn's trainer but she kind of danced around the question and never really answered. There are times when it's like a switch flips and Finn becomes a little demon dog and is uncontrollable. I don't know if it's just a sudden burst of energy or what but if we are outside he will grab the leash and pull and jump around, wide eyed and growling. If we walk towards him he'll try to run (as much as he can on leash) and if we reach down to take the leash from his mouth or pick him up he will snap at us. I can't tell if it's play or if he is testing us. We tried putting him on the ground in a submissive position like Cesar does on the Dog Whisperer and he makes these growling/whining noises like a gremlin and tosses his head back and forth trying to bite our hands. All of this is totally out of character for him. He never acts this way even when we take food from his mouth. It's like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Any idea what those episodes indicate and how we should handle him when he is in that state?
