I haven't updated recently so I thought I'd just give a quick update. We ended up not moving because I couldn't come up with the money to pay 2 months of double rent. So for now we are just going to stay where we are until June and then try and find a new place. (Speaking of which does anyone know of an apartment complex in the Twin Cities or suburbs that allow dogs and isn't insanely expensive?)

I recently graduated from college and am looking for work, which hasn't been going very… Continue

My Baby, Zwei, is getting PLUUUMPY!

For some reason, our baby gets pretty fat when we leave him at our family's house.

Well, we left him there for about a week this time ... we come back ... and fwwwoooomp! He's big! After leaving with him at 15lb, he's now tipping the scales on both WiiFit and our weight at 20lb.

It's so cute to see him finally get some meat on those bones -- not too much though. :) Yaaay!

Murphy's under the weather

Murphy hasn't been feeling too well. He's had diarrhea for a week now. I don't know how he got it or why its taking so long to get out of his system, but I feel really bad for him. We haven't been doing anything different with his food, he's been eating what he always eats. Right now, my poor baby is upstairs on our bed. I went up and checked on him and he wouldn't even move until I started rubbing his belly then he rolled onto his back, but he doesn't look like he's feeling too well. I feel… Continue

Mother and daughter reunited!

As many of you may have read, last week I took back one of my pups...it took Bella about 4 days and now they are best buds!!!!!

I keep wondering if they know they are related, not in the sense that people do but if there's something that makes them feel closer???? Rosie is doing well but will need a few minor adjustments before finding a forever home! It's so fun to watch these two… Continue

'Sadness' update

Gandalf has rallied well since the last pericardial tap for fluid on 1/16 and has a growing fan club in town. A cardiology visit confirmed the heart tumor diagnosis. We are following recommendations and after meeting with an oncologist, he had his 1st chemo on Thursday. Their goal is to shrink the tumor and/or prevent spread to other organs thereby keeping him more comfortable over the next weeks-months. No negative side effects yet. He sleeps a little more than he used to but otherwise is his… Continue

It's Official!

Sky and Lyla are getting a new brother on Thursday! His call name is Brando, after Marlon Brando because I love Guys and Dolls and Streetcare Named Desire, and I always thought it would be cool to have a big red dog named Brando... very masculine. His show name is Katahdin Into the Wild (breeder picked it).

My biggest concern is just making sure Lyla is okay making this transition. She has a tendency to get timid and stressed easily, so I am going to get her used to Brando slowly.… Continue

The perfect crate and food for a corgi.

I am getting my first corgi on the 31st and I am still getting things ready for him. The hardest thing I am having to make is what size crate and what type of food.

Since we are in economic times I am hoping to buy one crate and use spacers till he grows. But what size and dimesions (specifics if possible) of crate (Airport/Plastic type) do you have for your corgi as an adult?

Also, the nearest stores I have to me is Wal-mart and Petsmart. Which dry food (brand) should I… Continue

Corgi ownership if the owner is wheelchair bound

good friends of mine are getting a 6 month old female Pem today. One of the owners is wheelchair bound sometimes with a respirator. Long time Corgi fans, and previous Corgi owner, but he was healthier then.

I wonder is it okay to spray bitter Apple on the outside of plastic medical tubes so the dog will not chew on it?

I am excited for them because I know how much Rusty, now Chloe have enriched my life.

Any thoughts?

Oh the people at Dog Parks...

Sleepy Sky

I take Sky for a walk everyday at a neighborhood park and then, time permitting, we stop at the dog park for a friendly romp and a play. I guess I just love my dog so much that I cannot comprehend other owners who are not as caring or observant of their dogs--especially at dog parks.

So yesterday, while Sky and I are playing fetch, a Lab and a Beagle (both males) are playing and wrestling right in front of me. I know the beagle from… Continue

Month 5 of Corgi goodness!

We got our little Yumi back in August. She was extremely shy and wasn't too sure about us or her new home. Now, 5 months later, you wouldn't know that she was the same dog! Yumi is so bouncy it is unreal, lol. Whether it's time to eat, time to potty, or I just get up to go to the next room she is right there bouncing and spinning and just being a happy pup! She's still a bit shy around people she doesn't know, but a tummy scratch fixes that and she's instantly your best friend. She is a MAJOR… Continue
