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…

A Life and Corgi Update

Hello ladies and gents! It's been quite a while since I've been on here. I just wanted to give everyone an update on what has been going on and why I've been missing for what seems like forever. For starters, my husband came home from deployment back in July so I was wrapped up for two months, enjoying his company before he went back to work. I also started working two jobs so they have been keeping me quite busy. But as of…

RIP Gus Gus

On Thursday, Noodles cousin, Gus, will be crossing the rainbow bridge. Gus Gus was the first doggy cousin Noodles met when we brought Noodles home and Gus Gus has always been there for Noodles. I have such wonderful memories of taking the 2 on walks and seeing this little corgi next to this black lab. Gus would always wait for Noodles to catch up and he would stick close by him. Those 2 always had a special connection with each other.

I went out to say my good-bye to him last night…

Happy 7th Birthday Tucker <3 10-12-14

Time flys when your having fun, hard to believe Tucker is 7 and my youngest daughter turned 17!!  Tucker and Sarah share a birthday!!  I always said if I were to have any more human children they would have been born in October, well apparently I didnt't realize that rule applied to our pups too.  :) 

Tuckers St Bernard cousin came for a surprise visit to help celebrate the birthdays!!!  It was the first time they both met each other, and they…

Ruby's First Hallowe'en!

Our neighborhood LOVES Hallowe'en. The communal delight with it is getting to be right up there with Christmas, a chivaree at which we historically excel. Folks have already been putting up decorations all over their houses and yards, preparatory to welcoming the hordes of little kids who'll be trucked into the area on the spooky night.

So all this is pretty amazing to a short, feisty little dog. Ruby-Doo has the wildest hypersensitivity to any changes in her…

Snake repellers do they work and how harmful to dogs are they?.

Has anybody living rural with dogs with snakes ever used a snake repeller they look like an outdoor solar light that you stick into the ground and turn them on. The put a vibration into the ground and also put out a sonic sound that humans cant hear but animals ca. I would have thought they would drive dogs nuts?. I have seen a deadly brown snake and a not so deadly red bellied black snake today thank goodness the dogs were inside as the other day Sam almost dragged me off the top of our…

Opossum Adventure

So I was minding my own business the other day. I don't usually by the way. When all of a sudden, I saw this thing. It was shades of grey and white with a pink tail. I ran right after it, and so did my mom. I think she wanted to find out what it was just as badly as I did. I got to it first, and man I had no clue what it was. It kept saying hello by making this hissing sound, but it was definitely not a cat. I know my cats! I did a little further investigation and attempted to sniff it, but my… Continue

Bella earned her ADCH!

I do not post much but have used this forum for some much needed advise in the past. More on that later.

I am a happy dad in that my wife and Bella earned their ADCH (Agility Dog Champion) at the USDAA trial in Franklin, TN last weekend!!! I am happy for them and what they have accomplished together, but also the fact that we almost gave up on Bella three and a half years ago due to her aggressive behavior. She was something else! Now, to see them in the agility ring together is…

Ruby Cool!

Ruby and Cassie are SO much better! Now that I've recovered from the most recent (rather annoying) surgery and my son has repatriated the puppy, the worrisome behavioral issues have pretty much resolved.

Putting Ruby on a leash or confining her inside a room with me and Cassie all the time she's in the house worked some sort of a miracle in short order. Really, I couldn't begin to explain why or how this worked...only can report that the competitive "I'm gonna kill…

Aloha from Wini with a limp.

Aloha! Well it seems Wini has a sore right back hip and is limping I flew her over to another island to see the Vet. He says she has loose hips. She was given joint supplements and an anti-inflamatory. After about 3 weeks of light a activity, special diet and the Rx... she is worse. We are so worried. She is 3 1\2 yes old and so sweet, smart, happy and fun. She is our best friend. Any thoughts would be welcomed. Mahalo!…

Day 2 Update: Ruby Repatriation

Okay, so we're in the second day of The Plan to get Ruby civilized enough to survive life at the Funny Farm in the wake of at least one and possibly two more fun surgeries on The Human. After despairing as to whether I would be able to keep Ruby in the face of growing female/female competition plus a ridiculous unending series of increasingly wearing surgical procedures, friends and corgi fanciers began to…

Wheel of Fortune

I was in the kitchen and the TV was on in the TV room.  Suddenly there is frantic barking-as if the doorbell had been rung.  It stops and starts again a few seconds later.

Does anyone else have corgis who think the bell for the letters on Wheel of Fortune is the doorbell?

Ruby Repatriation: Day 1!

Well! Maybe I've been making a great deal more of the Ruby/Cassie doggy rivalry than fits the parameters of reality. It's been a surprising day...for a change, pleasantly surprising.

My son brought Ruby back to the Funny Farm today, after about a week of dog-sitting at his house while I recuperated from a painful surgical procedure. You may recall that the…

Advice Solicited: Corgi Rivalry, Corgi Future

A serious issue has arisen -- actually, two serious issues merging into one -- and I'm seeking advice on how to deal with it/them. If Ruby the Corgi Pup (about 9 months old now) is to keep her home here at the Funny Farm, I'm going to have to find a way to cope with this stuff. If not, Ruby is going to have to find a new home.

Right now she's at my son's house. Even though Ruby and Charley the Golden Retriever adore each other and get along well, he does not want two dogs.…

Need Some Help For A Friend...The One Who Lost Her Pup To Parvo

For those who may remember my posts on the thread regarding parvo about my friend who lost her brand new pup immediately after getting her.  She brought the pup home on a Thursday late afternoon, by the next day the pup was sick and at the vet's, the diagnosis was parvo.  The vet treated the pup for 4 days but she was so young she just couldn't fight it.  This pup...chocolate lab...along with several of it's litter mates were released to their new owner's at 6 weeks....several hours after…

At My Wits End....

My 2 Kids... Baxter & Bailey.  I am at a loss.  Baxter is 6 - Bailey is 4.  Both are AKC Pembrokes.  I obtained both as puppies, the original intent was to join the ranks as a breeder of quality, hand raised pups.  Long story, but the decision was made to spay and neuter and enjoy the dogs as loved pets.

Their living relationship has been one of 2 alpha characters living under the same roof.  So the challenges have been numerous. Between Tasmanian fights, always challenging "me…

Cleaning Lady as Corgi Nemesis?

What with the surgery (singular) I thought I was facing, I hired a neighbor's cleaning lady to help with the house, since I knew I wouldn't be able to do the usual amount of physical labor needed to keep the Funny Farm running. Now that "one" surgery has morphed into an endless series of surgeries, it looks like Liz (as we'll call her) is officially a semipermanent employee.

{sigh} The trouble with cleaning ladies -- even the best of them, as Liz happens to be -- is that you…
