Well, Foggy Bottom Summit I haven't Got A Clue AKA Watson has arrived. He was so loud this morning that Izzy went and hid behind the toilet! However, he has been pretty respectful of her desire not to be jumped on so that is good. We haven't had a puppy with a tail in over 30 years so that wagging tail…Continue
On Thursday night, my sister and I were coming home from Wal-Mart. I like to take the backroads through the desert areas because there isn't any traffic. There was a car a good distance in front of me that suddenly stopped in the road. I don't want to go into too much detail, but the driver of the other car had hit a small dog and kicked it out of the road and sped off. My sister and I got out to see if we could…Continue
Cassie has names for her many toys. True! She actually recognizes them by name and will fetch a specific item when asked, say, to "Get the Bluebird of Happiness!" These critters come from Costco in gigantic batches, so she has a multitude of the things; in the case of the goofy-looking birds, there's the Bluebird of Happiness and the Redbird of Joy and the Pinkbird of Ecstasy...and amazingly, she actually can identify them by name.
At any rate, one of these objects is a…Continue

I'm not one to blog but this is too funny not to tell.
So it's the Sugar Shacks Seasons in our area so my wife and I were invited this past weekend to attend a maple sap boil and maple creation for kids. They have their makeshift boiler in the back of their home with over 110 trees tapped to gather the sweet product.
The day is perfect, blue skies, warm weather, the snow is wet and soft but packed enough to walk on parts of the property. I bring Wally with…Continue
Crawling into the sack with a glass of wine and a handful of chocolate chips instead of a muscle-decramping pill, which is probably more indicated than the potable. But last night's pill made today more or less livable, and after the day's frolics, I deserve a something tastier than a pink tablet.
Let's start, though, by saying we've had to clean up only one puppy puddle today, a decided improvement over six or eight. Goooood pup!
So that's good. One excellent…Continue
Alphonse got his first two legs in Rally Novice this weekend. He scored 87 in his first run and placed 5th out of 22 dogs - 91 in his second run and placed 4th out of 18 dogs!Continue
What's even better than a corgi shirt?? Supporting a small animal shelter!!Continue
A couple of weekends ago Ashton and John competed in the EMLKC agility trial which was their first agility trial in over a year. Had to take last year off when John started a new job and they had him working 12 hr shifts at nights on weekends. That kind of cut into corgi competition time. They qualified twice in Open Jumpers and once in Open Standard which earned them a new title! They moved up to…Continue
Since the average has been about six or eight clean-ups, that's an accomplishment.
There's a trick to it, though: Yesterday …Continue
Yesh. They don't have to be the same breed, either.
This morning my son called as dawn cracked, asking if I'd dog-sit Charley the Golden Retriever, who, we were told,…Continue

So Ruby-Doo the Corgi Pup (we could call her the Queen of the Universe's Crown Jewel) is growing nicely. She's gained a little over three pounds since her last set of puppy shots: up to a shade over seven pounds and beginning to look more and more like a dog. An excruciatingly cute little dog.
Meanwhile, Her Royal Exalted Highness has been putting on weight, too.
She's been at her ideal weight (around 23 to 25 pounds) since she deigned to…Continue
Sooo... the American Kennel Club has been importuning me to purchase any number of services and products for Ruby-Doo the Corgi Pup, even though sometime in the next five or six months she will be spayed, and even though the rankest amateur can see at a glance that she is not, repeat NOT, a show-quality corgi. And that is even though pup's registration papers distinctly state "OFFSPRING OF THIS DOG NOT ELIGIBLE FOR REGISTRATION."
In addition to …Continue
Recently I've brought home Wesly, my new 8 week old red and white corgi pup. Since he's been home with us, he has been biting and nipping like crazy! I'm assuming its from his teething. He bites my fingers, hands, arms, legs, ankles.. toes, any body part with skin thats visible..! Has any of your corgi pups like this? Any tips or suggestions you've dealt with in the past that have worked? Thank you! I love him more than life but he hurts!!!
Does anyone else have their corgi or doggie/kitty/loved furry one permanently placed on their body?
I know some people who argue it's a "bad idea" because of the life span animals tend to have, but I know a lot of people, myself included, see pets as part of the family and hold them in our hearts forever, just as we would anyone else important to us.
I see a lot of pet tattoos ( on people, not the pet), yet, when I type in "corgi tattoo" in Google, I can't seem to find very…
So Ruby-Doo the Baby Corgi was doing pretty well in the house-training department until she fell in the drink. Since then, she's forgotten a fair amount of Technique. She's doing OK with No. 2, but as for No. 1: the fount flows exuberantly and endlessly.
I'm afraid I caused one of my readers to have an accident in…Continue
