After being away from home for three days, I noticed my 9-month-old's left retina is silver. This is definitely something that is very new. It reflects the light like mad! I haven't noticed any…Continue
This group is for all corgis living in the DC, Maryland, or Northern Virginia area. With enough members, hopefully we can get a few meet-ups going, trade vet recommendations, and get to know other corgis in the area (and their people). :-)
My boyfriend and I bought a house in June of 09 and I had been begging him for a puppy for ages. Since we now had a house, he surprised me one morning by waking me up with a puppy in his arms! That is how Ein came into our lives.
I'm just a girl who always wanted a corgi. Now I have one =] My dogs are my children.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
My little boy's name is Ein after the character in Cowboy Bebop. I protested the name but ultimately I lost. That's okay - I just call him Goober =] (Or Gooby, Gooby Goo, Gooberelli, Gooberino, etc) He's a beautiful red and I love that his white collar only goes 3/4 of the way around his neck!
He has the best, friendliest temperament of any dog I've ever met. I am amazed at how friendly he is! He loves every person he's ever (or never) met. He does his happy dance whenever he meets someone new and it's the cutest thing I've ever seen! He is terrified of new animals, however. Aside from his big brother (a cockapoo) he wants nothing to do with animals. Or anything that might be an animal. Or anything that's moving that he can't identify haha.
I also have a cockapoo named Davey (his nickname is Turd). He and I have been through a lot together. He has very severe separation anxiety to the point that he won't eat if I'm not around - and even then I have to sit next to his food bowl sometimes. The separation anxiety was my best leverage in convincing my boyfriend that we NEEDED another dog haha. Davey is a major cuddle-bug and is a huge fan of comfort; whereas Ein likes to cuddle only when he's in the mood and prefers sleeping on the hard tile!
Today was our trip to the vet to have Ein's eyes checked out. He wasn't sure and referred us to a ophthalmologist, of which the nearest if 2 hours away. Vet thinks it may be juvenile cataracts which can be corrected with surgery. But the good news is the vet says he probably still has 95% of vision in both eyes!
Glad you found this site. It's awesome. Kota does have his tail and I love it. It adds sooooo much personality. There are quite a few other pems with tails on this site. Glad you saw my Kota. He is amazing. Your Ein looks adorable and so much fun. Be sure to keep taking lots of pics and posting them. Hugs from me and kota
