Silly Dog Wackiness

Costco has new Dog Toys (wooHOOO!). Bought Cassie and Ruby a lifetime supply of three stuffed, dog-proof (har har!) "Dragons." Very cute, these objects.

As we scribble, the two Mistresses of the Universe are having it out over the Blue Dragon. They're profoundly engaged in a tug-o'-war. Ruby has one end of the B.D. and Cassie the other. Ruby drags toward the far end of the hall, going wrrrlla wrrll wrrlllll!  Cassie drags toward the end of the hall, going wrla…

I am a Dog

My wife and I rescued nearly 2000 dogs over some 45 years. Dogs became a very important part of our lives.

My Mother lost her husband of 65 years some time back and she was left alone in a big empty house ... except for a little silver bundle of fur named Rolf. Rolf was their Mini Schnauzer. She and Rolf were constant companions. Then the pain happened. Rolf had to be put to sleep due to kidney failure. They had known and loved one another for the better part of 15 years. I held Rolf…

She's Happy .... Now.

Thanks to all the folks who commented on Betty Boop. Yes she is a happy little girl now, but her story is far from pleasant.

We have had Betty since April of this year. She came to us as a fearful old gal (9 years old). Her first few years were years of torture. Not abuse ... TORTURE. After many cuts, broken bones and heartaches, she retaliated and bit one of her tormentors. The father took her to the vet to be put down. The vet took one look and gave the guy a choice: surrender the…

Abandoned Corgis need good home!!!!

Does anyone know of someone who is looking for a couple great corgis? Last week, two corgis around 4-5 years of age were found abandoned in Amherst NY. They were found outside a vacant home with no collars so it is very well that their owners just left them behind. The male is neutered and not sure if the female has been spayed. It is quite possible they could even be brother and sister. They are being held at the Clarence Animal Control shelter in Clarence NY and were put up for adoption today… Continue

Help!!! Need FOOL-PROOF dog repellent!

Holeeeee Mackerel! I walked in the door from this morning's meeting to find a chewed-up lamp cord scattered all over the living-room floor! Mercifully, Ruby picked the lamp that's plugged into an outlet operated by a switch on the wall. That's all that saved her from being badly hurt or electrocuted.

She's been at large in the house since she learned to work the doggy door and so quit defiling the floors. She has never been a chewer, never been a digger, never been especially…

Corgi progress; Ruby ears

It's two steps forward and one step backward here of late. Ruby is making great progress toward becoming a grown-up corgi; Ruby and Cassie have become a mini-pack consisting of two fast friends allied in the single goal of bossing the human around; and Ruby has kindly racked up another $350 in vet bills.

1) Step forward

As reported the other day, Ruby finally figured out how to use the dog door and then became so enamored of it the trick was not to get her…

RIP Joanna (Joanna,Rainy and Calvin)

We lost a member of our Corgi nation last week. Her husband called me to inform me yesterday .Several years ago I was lucky enough to meet with Joanna twice when she drove from NY to MN to get a rehomed dog(Rainy) of mine and a rescue(Calvin) a month later. The minute I met her I knew she was a special woman and we always kept in contact. I know she is playing with all of our 4 legged ones over Rainbow Ridge...Just wanted to let you know.

Georgia Corgis had a meet-up!!

Thanks to the efforts of Sarah Bradley for getting this event together, we met at the Canine Ranch in Canton where we had rented the agility field for four hours. We also got to try lure coursing.  40+ Corgis attended, and had the best time together. Bogart "told" me this morning he was ready to do it again!…

Ruby Learns to Use the Doggy Door!

So tonight, it being 10 p.m. and after the mosquitoes' bed-time, we were a-hunting the little bugs on their favorite nest, the ceiling. We'd patrolled most of the rooms, Cassie barking every time the Human cocked the fly-swatter, so as to warn her little winged friends so they could escape. As an afterthought, we dodged into the former TV room, now rarely used since I replaced the television with Netflix.

This is the room where I used to hang out almost every evening, and…

Thrilling encounter

We drove across Country recently. On day three we stopped in Colby, Kansas, off Route 70, where there is a Starbucks, the highlight of our 1,700 mile trip. To my utter surprise and thrill, I noticed a nice young man with two lovely brindle Cardigans, walking in the pet area. I quickly jumped out of the car and asked if I could pet the dogs and we struck up a conversation, his wife later joining in. When I asked him where he'd gotten the dogs he asked if I was familiar with showing dogs. I…

For the Love of Mosquitoes

Do your dogs seem to  be conspiring at building an international global alliance with the Tribe of Mosquitoes? What is it with dogs and open doors?

 Ruby Doo and Cassie the Corgi have decided that the kitchen door must remain open to the Wide World at all times. At this time of year, when the weather is spectacular and the air is clean, that rule would normally be OK. But this year we're having the most amazing plague of mosquitoes I've ever seen.

In the Golden…

I'm Kind Of A Big Deal.....

Lance

Today is a big day to celebrate, Lance would have been 9, if the rainbow bridge didn't call him so soon.  He sure brought us lots of joy as well as laughs over the years we had him.  My daughter bought this toy for Lance for one of his birthdays a couple years ago.  Photo credit to my daughter for taking the top pic of Lance. We all had such a special bond with him, my oldest and Lances birthdays were one day apart.  Yesterday was a tough day for her without…

Update on Wini from Moloka'i

Aloha,  Wini went to the vet on Oahu and after she was sedated and x-rayed she was diagnosed with a pulled knee tendon and hip dysplasia!  The vet gave her non-steroid pain pills and the joint health pills.  They said she will just have to "live with it".  She has picked up a couple of pounds since her last visit and checked in at a hefty 36 lbs...so we are trying to put her on a diet.  Boy is that a challenge!  She eats almost everything ....except bar.b.qued ulu.  (I guess that is OK since…

Do you know my dog's breeder?

So I'm really curious if anyone on here knows my dog's breeder. My aunt found Ruby for me so I never got the information. Her papers say the breeder Kyle Wilson. Her sire is Mad Man Murphy and her dame is Miss Molly Mahoney. She was born on 2/26/2013. I'm just curious. I know it's a long shot but I'd love to see Ruby's litter mates. My aunt no longer has the magazine the add was in. Google brings up nothing. It was in Greenfield, Indiana or just…

Allergic Ruby!

Ruby the Corgi Pup is doing exceedingly well these days. She's thriving.



Over the past few weeks she's had a growth spurt and is now almost as tall as Cassie. She weighed 21 pounds the other day, up from 16.



All of this came about after the vet and I made a little discovery: she's allergic to beef. Even as a tiny pup she looked a little wan around the eyes. Over time, her eyes took to running constantly. Vet thought it was an airborne allergy, and we were…
