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
On the QV every minute since Pup tumbled into the deep end of the pool, I realized that something had to be done to forestall a repeat of that adventure. Pup needs to be able to go outside without Human dithering over her every moment, and Human's nervous breakdown must be forestalled.
What to do that would be navigable for the human but nonnavigable for the canine? And preferably not TOO…Continue
I'm sitting here on the back porch writing a long-overdue blog round-up for Funny. Pup and Cassie are dorking around, squabbling over bully sticks, loafing, and (in Pup's case) searching for…Continue
So...after a commenter here at MyCorgi.com suggested conferring with a "holistic" vet, I googled "<same>" and discovered one such person at the mega-commercial-vet that is the legacy of my old friend, now retired, and all-around great vet and redneck good-ole-boy, Jerry Jenkins. Who'd've thunk it? Jerry's veterinary empire is right down the road, as opposed to halfway across the city where I've been schlepping Cassie and now, New Pup.
Well. It was off to…Continue
This little dog can lay down a puddle without ever being in the vicinity of the puddle! Don't believe me, do ya? It's trooooo!
LOL! Admittedly, even though she was locked up with me and Cassie in the office, I got distracted trying to register the ISBN and…Continue
There's a great discussion going on in the forum about aggressive dogs and morons who go around with their dogs off-leash.
This is one of my hobby-horses. I can get myself worked up to quite a high pitch on the subject. Here's the story:
The last German shepherd I had was strongly dog-aversive. This, it develops, is a common trait among GerSheps, aggravated in Anna's case by a…Continue
So while I was up at the Petsmart picking up another bag of puppy chow, I scored a nice medium-sized rope toy for Pup. She already had one but it has these nylon ribbon things running through it, which look like bright green hazards to me. Wanted her to have one that was all cotton.
Apparently she did, too! She went absolutely BONKERS over the thing and decided to carry it everywhere she went, like Linus and his blanket. Even took it outside to pee. Back in: carried it over to…Continue
