Safe store bought treats

I know the best treats are homemade but I'm wondering if anyone can recommend treats that actually made in USA w/o any imported ingredients. Thanks for any help.See More

Welsh Corgi Breeder?
No
About My Corgi(s):
Have had R & W Pembrokes my whole life, usually in pairs. Lucy, our now 5-yr old charmer, is a delight and keeps us laughing. We purposely picked a petite girl so that we could fly with her in the passenger cabin. We had our maiden voyage CA to NY (w. Lucy in the largest sized airline approved sherpa) and we all survived––esp. me, with the help of a bloody mary!

Fast forward a year and we re-homed a tri-male puppy who would have been in the pound if we didn't intervene. He had been left alone basically 24/7 in a backyard, and was all ribs and ears. He was a handful and the most difficult corgi I had ever owned. I don't know who was more upset by the decision to keep him, Jack, my husband, or Lucy. But all things happen for a reason. He's a wonderful, gentle and loyal corgi and we're all in love with him, including Lucy, (most of the time!), haha. RR turned 1 yo this month & surprised us all by becoming quite the looker. Lucy is 5. RR is twice her size, Everyone thinks that she's the puppy. Ya gotta love happy endings!!!
I have:
Pembroke

I know it's not a Corgi (a Border Collie was chosen) but it's pretty funny. Happy St. Patick's day to all!

Adding a 2nd Corgi

Posted on December 14, 2011 at 3:00pm 14 Comments

When we rehomed Ricky (aka Rafa) Lucy wouldn't let him sleep next to her. In fact, she wouldn't allow him to sleep on our bed! So I am happy to share these photos. I believe in miracles, haha! A BIG thank you to all mycorgi friends who gave so much support when we re-homed "The Rafanator!"   xoxo wendy…

Turmeric capsules for pain relief?

Posted on July 16, 2011 at 5:00pm 11 Comments

I just received an email from an orthopedic surgeon friend who had chronic back and leg pain. He wrote that he started taking 2 turmeric capsules and "cannot believe how much this has taken away my leg pain. This is best I have felt in over a decade and it has taken my limp away. I am usually a huge skeptic of these kind of treatment. It has only been a week and I know it may be placebo, but this has been very dramatic. So far, I have not had any side effects...Look it up in Wikipedia before…

Hi Wendy, great to hear from you, go to "settings" on your right hands side :)

Where in the heck have you been?????? I miss you:)

Tucker seems to be doing ok, hope he continues to.  My husband had been looking at cardigans not too long after lance passed, but I think it was it was a way of coping.  Unfortunately, I'm not sure we will be able to get another corgi any time soon.  Life is so unpredictable, as I woke up this morning to my fb and the first thing I saw was a fb friend I know through corgi nation, unexpectedly and tragically lost her husband in a car accident, only 45 years old.   So much sadness everywhere.  :(  One day at a time, is the motto I am going back too. Thanks for asking Wendy.  How are you and your family doing?

At 3:23pm on June 11, 2014, Natalie, Lance &Tucker said…

Thanks Wendy....we are hanging in there..its tough.  miss him, its way too quiet without Lance.

Is Ricky rooting for Rafa Nidal?  Does he harbor some secret fantasy of retrieving Rafa's errant practice shots?  That would be a workout:  trying to serve up practice shots faster than a corgi can return them.

Al favors his leg but gets around the hood OK.  I s'poze I'd spend over $1k just on a diagnosis and recommendation.  I want him to be able to play soccer and tennis ball.

Gwynnie (10.75 y.o.) is getting the hiking -- weenie peaks -- but she's done 2 this year already, and an easy 20 miles MLK weekend.  20 miles... I don't feel a day over 60...

3 mo. tricolor puppie (Butters) in our neighborhood!!  An older red (Levi), too!

thank y ou Wendy and Jack, the Corgi Nation are the best people!!!!! We hope that Katie is pregnant with Joey babies. I have never been owned by a better worker than Joe. We worked some cows yesterday, just was not the same

Hello! thanks for all of the advice, Lucy just turned two and is doing great! :)

At 9:03am on April 16, 2013, Snickmom said…

Wendy: I didn't know groups were run by the person who set them up? I just post things when I think a member might be interested. Snickers is just as much of a stick as Lucy, so I don't think I qualify as a social director either!  I spend more time with my tumblr than with MyCorgi lately. Hope you are doing well.
