Doggy Harness: VERY pleased!

So I got two harnesses, one for Ruby and one for Cassie, to jury-rig the proposed car tie-downs. That doesn't seem like the greatest idea ever to hit the pike. BUT... I decided to try using them for the daily doggy walk, instead of their collars.

Cassie, a grown dog, is not a dragger. But Ruby the Corgi Pup is only just beginning to get the "heel" idea. She will drag for half a block or so, until her ginger wears down and she remembers. The other day I'd put a rolled leather…

Doggy Seat Belt: INSIGHT!

So Ruby Doo and I are driving to the vet, there to get her conjunctivitis checked. Actually, I'm driving. She's riding in her crate, which is supposed to protect her in the event of a highway mishap. The crate is tied down with the only credible tool I have to use as a tie-down: to wit, clothesline rope.

Not far into this journey, one of my Fellow Homicidal Drivers (you have to live in Arizona to appreciate this nomenclature) tries to kill us. In maneuvering out of reach, I…

Confused....

I hoope I don't bother anyone for making a new thread but I am a bit at loss, and needs you guys advice on this... I was scared to tell about this but I am sure you guys won't judge. When I told my Therapist about getting a PWC, she actually told me that they can be really good PSD for my PTSD, Social Anxiety, Angoraphobia, and my night terrors.



All excited I called my breeder about it, and said that PWC are really not good for that kind of work without letting me explain what I… Continue

Can a Corgi Become "Un-Housetrained"???

What is going on here?

Ruby the Corgi Pup was doing fine in the house-training department, once we addressed the UTI that she apparently had at the time she arrived here at 8 weeks of age.

Recently, she started peeing on the floor again. So forthwith it was back to the vet: he couldn't find an infection but did see some crystals (which it develops are not out of the ordinary in dogs and may not indicate pathology). But he put her back on Clavamox and the…

Kerfuffle in the park today

So sadly we had a mishap in our usual dog park today. We were at the MSPCAs dog park this afternoon and the only other dog there was an Aussie cattle dog. She and the owner seemed nice and another dog joined us as well. The dogs were playing with some balls that are often lying around the park. Everything was great for a while when out of nowhere the cattle dog started attacking poor Penny. She ended up with a cut on her eyelid and some hefty emergency vet bills that the other owner offered to… Continue

Why is it so hard to be on the same page? <Rant>

So I went away for about a week and a half to help my dad move down to North Carolina, from Upstate NY. It was a grueling 14hr drive one way.

I left the dog home because (a)my Aunt doesn't really like dogs, and (b) her fiance is severely allergic to animals. Like we went to a Zoo and he broke out and had an attack just from being at the Zoo, and this guy loves animals to death, I really feel bad for him.

So I left my dog at home, with my fiance. We had a training plan in order,…

It's not easy to create a viral video

I've posted over 60 videos of Wally, motorbiking, sky diving, plane flying, etc. but none became viral.  

The reason I do those videos is mostly for a virtual album and for my mother who's in a home and does not have any computer skill.   Therefore, bringing her a burnt DVD with the videos when I visit is a way to put a smile on her face.   Plus, in order to create a viral you can't have any copyright material so therefore the music from the web that makes such an impact on clips,…

DIY Dog Food

Ruby the Corgi Pup is thriving on the "Real Food" (as I like to call it) that she's been getting since recovering from her UTI and subsequent spate of projectile doggyrhea. Her growth has resumed, her shiny coat practically glows in the dark, and she's full of ginger. She and Cassie have learned to play tug o'war together with some very silly-looking toys recently acquired at Costco, and for the past hour they've been sharing a frenzy over Ball.

Cassie has had Real Food ever…

My Corgi

Addie is my first Corgi,I've always had mini schnauzers, and the experience has been so different. I was wondering if anyone has ever seen a Corgi that is marked like Addie? She's tri colored but as you can see very dark and marked very different. I love her to the moon and back and don't care about her blood line, but since she does have papers I was just curious if anyone had seen one like her. She hasn't become very fluffy or bushy around her head. Though she does shed enough to make another… Continue

Pumpkin is 13 today!

Today Pumpkin is 13! Am I the luckiest, I know I'm the happiest because of her.  Of course she's slower but she still hops along for her walk, she sleeps much more and that's when the grey around her eyes shows, but most of the time she looks like a puppy.  Play...oh yeah, never ignores a toy, gets each one out of the basket, shakes it and growls.  She always makes me laugh. It's a very, very…

Daisy

So, I've had my Daisy for three years now since I rescued her from Sac. animal shelter.

And over the years, she's had a lot of fun visiting the neighbor's backyards, taking her own walks, and generally scaring the hell out of me every time I noticed the was gone. Then I would panic and bicycle around till I found her. Thankfully, I always did except for…

Watson at 6 months

So Watson is 6 months and still is lots of fun! He is a little too enthusiastic when greeting people but we are working on it. He is much better about seeing other dogs at least he doesn't always bark now. He had his first professional nail dremeling today and cried like a baby while gulping down treats.( I am a big chicken and have just been trimming the nails with clippers while showing him the dremel). He loves to lick everybody and doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body. It appears…

Max Is Having Surgery Tomorrow

He has a subcutaneous lipoma low on his side.  For those who don't know what they are, they are a fatty growth that is common to older dogs.  These are not cancer.  Normally they stay small and don't need to be removed...I think just about all my older dogs have had them.  The one Max has is low on his side and it grew quickly and large, about the size of a softball. The vet said she can close her fingers almost completely on the inside of the growth which means it's not attached to…

New Adventures!

It looks like my husband and I, along with our two corgis will be moving in the next month to Louisville KY. We're both excited, but anxious about moving into an apartment with our corgis (Louisville is an expensive place compared to where we are now)! We're not worried about our Lola moving there and being OK with an apartment, but we're concerned about Hank. He's just a puppy, and likes to talk, but I'm worried about how that talking will affect our neighbors. We take him for lots of walks…

Teddy's BIG Adventure!!!!!!

Well Teddy(my 11 year old rescue) and Tank at some point decided to leave the area. Teddy does not do this and being almost completely deaf I panicked. Took Wynn with me and started walking the fields near our place. Partway through I thought about calling the people who live at our other place and the lady said "so…

Tucker's First Dock Diving Trial

So yesterday morning we woke up bright and early and headed off to our first dock diving trial! This one was hosted by NADD/AKC. We were a little surprised to show up and see a TON of Golden Retrievers (their club decided to come together), two labs, one German Shepherd, and NO "little" dogs. No matter, everyone was very welcoming and loved that a Corgi came to dock dive. We got in line to do our practice jumps-- Tucker flew off the dock no problem with plenty of…

Is it possible...???

...that Ruby is not a purebred corgi?

This morning when I took Ruby in to get her stitches out, I finally extracted a certificate of spaying from the vet's office -- they had my old address and had mailed a copy there. When I came to light long enough to scan it and send it to Lindsay, I noticed that they had described her as a "Corgi cross."

Called and said she's a purebred, and they said they'd send out another form. But...hm. It's easy to see why a…
