"my kirby started his teenager phase right when he turned two. it was like he forgot everything i had trained hi to do. my breeder told me his parents were the same way around that age, and he would grow out of it once he turned three. and, he did :)"

Kirby has ivdd :(

I found out yesterday that Kirby has ivdd. He walks fine, he just has a bit of back pain right now. He is on kennel rest for 28 days, and on tramadol, rimadyl, and methocarbamol. Will life ever be the same for him? Will he be able to use the stairs after the crate rest?

About My Corgi(s):
i have one Pembroke named sir corban of eureka (but we call him Kirby)he is a redhead tri , with a band of white that looks like an avatar tattoo (for those of you who have seen the show) only other way to describe it is it looks like a white arrow going from his chest and curving up to the back of his neck. we frequent university lake dog park. Kirby's dad has won a few blue ribbons in conformation.

list of his known commands:
kennel up (go to his kennel)
roll over
do the wave (like at a sports arena)
stop,drop,and roll (had to teach him fire safety)
goodbye (sit, and wave one paw to signify saying goodbye)
bang (play dead)
zombies (wake up from playing dead after a few random words until i say zombies)
over (jump over something)
lets go (walk on loose leash)
down (lie down)
go upstairs
go downstairs
go potty
go outside
touch (touch an object)
high ten
low five

Amberlie; I loved your pics of Kirby on the before and after discussion so I was checking out your page. You have found some great groups; I joined The Waving Corgis, The Nubs, and The Runts! Since you have other pets, you might enjoy the Honorary Corgi Group! Kirby is a doll and your pictures are great. (Check out the Corgi Photographers) And there is no way you should miss Awkward Little Sleepers.

Thanks Amberlie and Kirby! I do love their tails. I have some corgis that you can see their tails and other that you really have to look hard to see them wag! I am enjoying all the tail wagging too!

Happy birfday, Kirby!

Waffle comes home on MY birthday, May 18. :] He's going to visit the house for a week beforehand so he can get used to it and be less scared when he "spends the night". He's very, very close to his littermates and it's going to take some adjusting. He'd come home sooner, but I have exams until May 12. :0

[had to send 3 parts; size limit]
I think the hydration thing is overhyped -- I drink when I'm thirsty -- but it took me awhile to develop the pattern habit: shed backpack, fill Outward Hound collapsible waterbowl, carry 1-pint bottle for dog water. Dogs can't sweat; they pant and drool, may need more water than we do. I dunno. The only time I've had to wait for them is above timberline in summer sun, they wilt. I hand-feed scraped snow or make a pupsicle out of them, which they love.

Al may be a bit of a tenderfoot. He's a rocket on the paved playground, and wears his pads thin. I've seen him get really sore feet on spring snow (running, keeping up with me on Nordic skis) and loose sand (beach, roads). They're not used to loose sand. It gets between their pads and irritates the soft skin. I think dogs may get used to this if they live with it, but our do not.
I carry these "Pawz" rubber balloon booties for emergencies. Blue, medium size. I've never tried them occasionally on snow, seem to work OK, but I just want something to enable the dog to get out in an emergency. I don't see using them regularly. I might try Musher's Secret for snow someday.
