Bringing home puppy, food advice...

It's almost about time to bring my 8 week old pembroke, Oski home. I was curious what would be a good puppy food to get and where I should buy it. I know we want to stay more on the organic side. Does anyone have any good suggestions? 

 

-Also any advice you could give me on puppy proffing my home, toys, treats, beds etc... would be greatly appreciated! Thanks,

-Kelly

Corgi Needs Good Home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mia is a one year old little corgi. She was born on July 1st 2009. She is very loving and sweet and just LOVES to play ball. She loves to cuddle and be close to her owner. She is crate trained and house broken. She is very well behaved. Mia is very sweet but is shy around new people, dogs and surroundings. She is AKC pedigree and is spayed.  She has had all her shots but will be needing her yearly vet visit soon. She would do best in a single dog  home or with another corgi  (preferably…

First Bath

Today PIcadilly had her first bath here at her new forever home. IT wasn't her first bath, but it was the first bath I had ever given a dog. Luckily my girlfriend was there to walk me through it. She took it great except she looked miserable while standing there like a good bath taker. It was funny though when she got out and started rubbing her body all over the ground.

Another way my life revolves around my Corgi...

So I broke my foot in September and unfortunately developed a chronic condition that affects the nerves. I went to a new doctor today to try a new treatment and she wants me to try Cymbalta. The first thing I said was "Oh cool, that is the Corgi drug". The look on her face made me realize that I might sound a little crazy so I had to explain I have a Corgi and that he looks just like the dog on the Cymbalta commercial. I think she still had questions about my sanity but laughed it off and moved… Continue

Finding Puppy homes is happy; why do I cry so much?

Kong Kong Kong Kong KONG!

LeeLoo has a red Kong ball that we gave her earlier this week.  She enjoys it for hours on end.  BUT all she does is noses it around the room, leaving slobber trails everywhere!  She does not chomp down on it, throw it, or bit it.  If anything, she brings it to a spot she likes, flops down and licks the tar out of it.  She's even dropped it in her water dish to soften the cookies.

We asked her vet about her actions, and she believes Loo is herding the ball!  Has anyone else…

Missing my corgi

We had to say goodbye to our beloved corgi, Kujo, on Saturday afternoon :( 

He started feeling poorly on Friday night, I got him in to the vet first thing on Saturday morning. At first they thought he had kidney stones but after further tests they found a very large cancerous tumor in his bladder.  Bladder cancer is very deadly in dogs and there was absolutely nothing that could be done for him.  We are missing him like crazy and our house just isn't the same without him.  We have a 3…

Corgi neighbours!

When I moved into my apartment complex a few months ago, I met my neighbour Ruby and her chihuahua Bianca. We often take the dogs out at the same time, and one day, Ruby mentioned to me that she had seen another corgi in our complex, named Olive. 

 

Last night, I was walking from my car to my apartment with groceries, and lo! There was a young woman walking her fluffy corgi. I said, "This must be Olive!" It was. :) Olive was very friendly - much more extroverted than…

cow hoof treats

My corgi, Sassy, got a cow hoof from her groomer at Christmas.  Has any one else given them to their corgis?

I've read that the rawhide is not good for their stomachs. But I never read any thing about cow hoofs.  Sassy really likes to chew on them.

Another went over the Rainbow Bridge!

When we got Bucher as a puppy, he was quite the hit in our neighborhood.  We had really great neighbors and so we all would hang out together in the summer.  Our neighbor’s two houses away, Ann & Brian, really liked Boo so they ended up rescuing a corgi Kujo.  We no longer live in that neighborhood, but still stop and visit.  We just stopped last month to visit with Ann, Brian & of course Kujo and they also have another dog Easton.  I told Ann about this site and was so excited when…
