"I've only ever done the self wash there, but Soggy Paws has grooming services. I prefer the one in Uptown (the people are nicer and a lot more helpful) over the one in the South Loop, but I've never been to the one in Wicker Park.…"
"Technically he needs both his rabies tag and city license to go to the bark parks, and I know down here the ticket people and local cops have actually been checking, so you might want to avoid the dog parks until you register him (it's only $5…"
"Hi! Gendry got his second round of shots this weekend. I can't register/permit him until he gets his rabies in 4 weeks. Do you know if he can go to dog parks before then? We would love to have a play date soon!"
"I'm still here, but I wouldn't really call the group active. I'm in the city and down to do whatever, especially if it means Stuart gets to run around and be loud. I was thinking of letting him run around at the 57th St. beach on…"

I really suck at filling out the "About Me" sections of things. I'll answer any question you ask though.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
My boyfriend and I got Stuart early in the summer of 2011. He's fantastically silly, loves everyone, likes to tease the cat, and is an excellent addition to our family. I wish we had enough space to get a herd of Corgis.

Sounds yummy! I love couscous and have not been eating much of that kind of stuff since my doc is on me about my blood sugar. Diabetes runs wild in my family and it is catching up to me. So, I have been counting all my carbs the last few months. However, on Saturday I am going to eat whatever I please. (Another reason that I am looking forward to Saturday.) Mostly, I love watching the Corgis run.
You might want to attend the Wisconsin Corgi Picnic. My husband and I went last year. It was our first Corgi event. It was a blast! Check out the information on the events page. It is September 8. Bring something yummy for the picnic...perferably vegetarian!
So, Friva is a nickname. I noticed that he ending was the same as the ending of Aviva. I thought maybe it meant something in another language.
Hope to see you again at another Corgi event.
I am not sure if we are going to the Indy picnic on June 23. It also happens to be the day of one of my favorite car shows. My husband and I have a '67 Mustang and a '64 Fairlane 500 that we like to show. So at this point I am not sure if the Corgis or the Classic Cars will win. Then the Wisconsin group is planning a picnic September 8. We will probably go to that. It was wonderful last year. I hope to repeat the Freeport Corgi Picnic some time after the Wisconsin one. Last year we had the Freeport on on September 11. Since Wisconsin moved theirs to September 8, I think we will need to move ours back a couple weeks or so.
Thanks for taking the time to write to tell me how much you enjoyed CORGI-CON. Did you get the E-mail I sent with the link to my photos? I want to make sure that I have your E-mail address right. That way I can send you a flyer directly next time.
Also, I have a question. I noticed that your MyCorgi name says Friva & Stuart, but when we met you gave me your name Aviva. Should I call you Aviva? What does Friva mean?
Thanks for joining us at CORGI-CON. I wish we would have had more time to talk, but I was pretty busy at the information table. Looking through your pictures, I noticed that Stuart looks pretty comfortable in his tie at the office. I am so jealous that you can take your Corgi to work. Hope to see you next year at CORGI-CON.
