The Pipsqueak and the Gallumphing Giant and the Watch-Corgi

This noon my son dropped by and left the 90-pound Charley the Golden Retriever in my care. He -- son -- is headed off to Grand Junction, Colorado, with his father, uncle, and that tribe to celebrate his grandmother's 100th birthday. He'll be gone four days, and Charley is here,…

Who's Herding Who?

I saw this on pinterest and it had me laughing so hard.  Baby corgi and lamb reverse roles and have a good time.

Corgis who like music

  So I'm quite curious if there are any corgis out there who like to listen to music and will bob or sway to music. Dodger loves Mozart and Beethoven. He'll start swaying and he tries to do a little bob-dance type of thing. It's the cutest thing ever. Do any of your corgis do something similar or is it whatever to them? Do they like a specific type of music or do they like to switch it up?

Watson update

It has been such fun having a puppy again! Watson has exceeded our expectations so far. He is incredibly sweet and friendly and occasionally turns into a tornado! He is learning our routine and how to walk on the leash. My vet was very impressed with how great he is.

I decided to try a Cardigan this time partly out of curiosity and partly because I developed a relationship with a Cardigan breeder/handler at a large dog show I go to annually by us. I really liked her dogs and was on a… Continue

Recognizing Aggression In Other Dogs

  Far far too often you hear about cases on the news about dog attacks or hearing stories from people you know. I can honestly say that I'm proud that I grew up around aggressive dogs and I had volunteered two years of helping aggressive dogs heal.The events that took place on Sunday made me very thankful for my experience in this field.

  Sunday night a bunch of friends and family friends of my husband were having a bonfire. They also have two dogs, a German Shepard and a…

Water Games

Now this is ridiculous. This is hilarious!

This morning, Pup discovered that water bowls are good for something other than holding stuff to drink. Water bowls are excellent to play in!

Lo! You can put your front feet in a water bowl. They get all WET! Better yet, they make splashing noises! They slop water on the patio floor! Ohhhh, cool!

Now here's the amazing part: she figured out that she could stick her schnozz into the water, blow…

New family member

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…

Hug your Furbabies. *Warning - Dog Death*

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…

The THING Goes Airborne!

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…

First time meeting a rabbit and jumped in a Chicken Coop


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…

A Long Day, with an Escape

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…

We're proud of him!…

Happy Agility Corgi!

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…

A WHOLE DAY without Peeing on the Floor!

Yes! It's true! Yesterday Ruby the Corgi Puppy managed to get through the entire day without depositing a puddle for me to clean up.

Since the average has been about six or eight clean-ups, that's an accomplishment.

There's a trick to it, though: Yesterday …

Puppy Love...or "Them agin' Us"

Oh, dear. Did you know that puppies can recognize each other and, like teenaged humans, gang up against the Old Folks?

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,…
