Cassie is not among the some who like it hot. And where we live, it gets mighty hot -- 118 is not uncommon. So when we go for a walk during the late spring, summer, and early fall, it's after dark or before dawn, and even then when it's very warm, she pooples out after a block or two.
But once the weather cools into the 60s and low 70s...ahhhh! Dog joy. Then she can go and go and go.
I have to walk a mile a day -- preferably…Continue
My 13 week old little guy goes absolutely crazy when he sees and interacts with other dogs. He's mostly fine with humans (he tries to jump up, but is fairly good about not biting).
He will bark non-stop at the other dog (30+ minutes straight if you let him) and repeatedly tries to jump on top of them, bite them, and chases them everywhere.
He never "settles down" and will continue to antagonize the other dogs. Even if the other dog tries to put him in his…Continue
I see some familiar Corgis on this list! ;)
I was just confirmed to pick up my dream dog just after Christmas. A week ago I found these puppies from this https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/dbOJb fundraiser for Willa, a corgi rescue who was pregnant. THEIR TAILS WEREN'T DOCKED. They were in California. It was too good to be true. I found them hours before the application deadline for a puppy closed and fought the good fight to get one. I was just confirmed and my…Continue
I'm not to sure if I mentioned this in my blogs before, but I'll mention it now/again.
Pilot, my coonhound cross, has really bad separation anxiety.
He doesn't destroy anything but he'd bay and bark for hours when I left the house.
I finally got a hold of a trainer who had some great advice and in a year, we've made TREMENDOUS progress. It wasn't cured, but it was a heck of a lot better.
Anyways, lately with everything going on ( there also has been a lot going on, and…
Hi everyone - I haven't been on this site for a long time, however, I have a friend who needs to find a home for a 10 yr female corgi who hadn't adjusted to a new baby in the family. This is sad, however, the corgi lived a live as the only companion to a woman for 5 yrs, then she married, and the corgi lost her position but was still a loved member of the pair, now a baby enters the world and the the corgi is 10yrs and has snapped (reason unknown) at the baby. This sort of thing often…Continue
I got Wally when he was a bit over 9 weeks of age. Now he just turned 1 year old and I wanted to do a little experiment with him. I called the breeder, who's 3 provinces away, and asked her if she could send me something of his father's. She thought he might not reconize his father but rather just intregued at the smell of another dog.
But curious herself she decided to put a toy in his kennel for about a week and then ship it to me.
I'll film Wally's reaction…Continue

It's been a really long time since I posted, but could use some help.
This past weekend, Camber had difficulty walking. It started when I looked over to where she was sitting and it looked like she was having some sort of spasm. I went over, touched her, and it felt like all her muscles were quivering. I stood her up and she sort of just quivered then collapsed on the ground. I put her on the kitchen table and started rubbing her legs and back and she didn't flinch or yelp or…Continue
I am proud to share again more well deserved honors going to my dear friend Theresa Strader and her all volunteer organization. Never missed a beat, still going on rescue missions in various States, while rebuilding the pieces of her personal life after the total loss of their home in the Black Forest fires last June and doing work as a nurse as well.... . Thankfully they don't get many Corgis, but she's had the occasional one. Looking forward to lunch with her soon.…Continue
Off for our morning doggy walk. In the winter, when Arizona is livable, Cassie can easily walk a mile or two. In the summer, we're lucky to make it to the end of the block, even after dark -- and of course I don't ask her to walk on those broiling hot pavements at that time of year.
Just joined your attractive and informative website. My name is Vicky Hay and I live to serve Cassie the Corgi, Queen of the Universe.
Cassie came to me by way of the local Humane Society. Her previous humans had dumped her in the society's pound,…Continue
I've started introductions, and with Lemmy it went fine, he got a good look and sniff and now he couldn't care less. The only time Elmo ( The rat, lol my daughter named him...she's 3) catches Lemmys interest is when Elmo runs around. Lemmy perks up and watches, then goes back to doing whatever.
Pilot on the other hand -_- is a totally different story.
He freaks out when ever I go into my room, and loses his mind when I open the cage, and or take Elmo out.
On November 17th Ashton celebrated his 5th birthday with a special homemade pup cake, treats, toys and a new Seahawks jersey. Pinoko and Alphonse enjoyed celebrating with their big brother and had themselves a time with the new…Continue
Welcome Justice - now named Copper!
Edited to add we have decided to call him Copper. Connie and Copper sound so good together!
Justice's family had to relocate and were not able to take him along. We've known each other for…Continue
I am getting myself ready before I get a puppy, I'm on a list for a breeder. I have slowly gathered everything I think I'll need, minus food, collar, leash (I want to wait to make sure I get something that fits).
I have seen a lot of people use xpens/playpens for pups when they are younger, for when they can't watch them or if they have to get up and do something, etc. I got a 30" high one to use at home, but my house is pretty much completely carpet! Not good for puppy…Continue
Do you really need them?
I mean every dog needs obedience training, but do they need the school? I just feel like I'd be paying hundreds of dollars for them to teach my dog things I could teach them, and even teach some things wrong...
I know how to maintain pack leader/rank. I know all the basic commands they need to know, including when they can bark (want to train my corgi to be a watchdog) and when they can not. Even potty training they would take him outside and I…Continue
