Austin and Lexus Go Back to School

Spring break and spring blossoms at the University of Washington spurred a visit to this institute of higher learning. Although already highly intelligent we came away feeling better educated. 

The highlight of our visit was discovering the group of Japanese exchange students enjoying their dinner of Dick's…

Getting my first corgi puppy this summer!

After 3 years of waiting, I am finally getting a corgi puppy this summer. I have found a breeder I like and I feel like I am so ready for him to be here, he will be born sometime next month and in my arms mid June or early July.  I need some help though, I am a plan ahead type of person, what things should I be getting for my new addition? I have a small list going, but some more specific items on my list would be appreciated.

Here's the list so far:

-Crate, I've…

Corgi Dislikes?

We recently acquired a treadmill for weight loss purposes (ours, not the dogs) and both my furbabies are terrified of it.  If our bedroom door is open, Wrigley hides under the bed (27 lbs) and Ryno gets as close the under it as he can fit (31 lbs).  Do any of you have similar items that scare your big bad brave dogs?

Ryno is also scared of anything that blows in the wind (kites, balloons, banners, yard decorations, palm fronds).

 

Thank you.

Do you believe Corgis actually smile?

Because I do. I love dogs, always have, but I have never come across such a happy and cheerful breed such as the Corgi.   Most all vets/doctors/anyone who studies dogs will say that dogs aren't capable of smiling (or so I have read and heard; someone please correct me if I am wrong), but there is something about this breed that makes me feel otherwise. Maybe it's because I love my little (actually BIG) Maple so much and I am hopeful :). 

For those of you who agree, please reply and…

Barking at night in the crate could it be teething?

Hi again? clearly this is my first corgi and I have a bundle of questions, hope you all don't mind. We crate trained Boris from day one and he has been great, not a peep all night. We have had him for 3 month and suddenly the last week or so he settles in and then around 12 he barks all night we let him out to go potty he continues to bark. Could it be he is in pain with teething how should i correct this behavior. thanks for the help in advance

Rally Match

What an experience yesterday. Becca and I went to a rally practice match, our first. It had high points and low points. Low points I got sick and Becca blew me off on our first run. High points, everyone was very helpful and welcoming, and our second run went really well.

I have a couple of questions for people who have competed. How do you keep a corgi from vacuuming the floor? On our first run Becca was far more interested in sniffing the floor than in me. Also how do you deal with…

any corgis out there, that DO NOT like salmon/fish flavored products?  



I recently found out, Momo will NOT EAT his salmon treats, he'll play and throw them around and "hunt" it, but not eat it.  he leave it around on the floor when he's done playing and wait for his MEATY Flavored treats or... sometimes IF AVAILABLE, the  KINGS Hawaiian Bread rolls…

K9 Diabetes

This last weekend has been a little hard on my heart and on my Boomer he has been sick and we found out with a vet visit and tests he has diabetes.

The vet said it was good that we where alert with his health and got him there as soon as we did. It could have gotten very bad for him. Please always be alert with your fur babies heath!!! It may save…

Herding

Foxy met baby lambs for the first time today. She was so gentle I was amazed. I expected her to go crazy, but she just sniffed them & gave them kisses. She never even barked at them or tried to nip them. Maybe she was to much in shock from what she was seeing lol.

My corgi is too fat!

As per the vet...I prefer to use the term "big boned". She went in for an update on her vaccines and during her physical, we were informed that she is 37 lbs...which is apparently 10 lbs too much...you can't feel her ribs, she has no waist, etc..Ouch! Needless to say, when I left there I felt like a bad mom. So now Maple is on a strict diet, going on brisk walks and is only allowed 1 treat per day. Basically, she has been enrolled in doggy boot camp! So I am just wondering, for any of you…

Biting and teething question

I have a question for all the corgi owners out there. Boris is about 41/2 months old, we took him to a 6 week puppy training and try to work with him for about 5 min a day on everything. We were told that the nipping and mouthing was a phase due to his teething and he has improved his day one but he still lunges at your face playfully or mouths your fingers or arm. What should i do to totally stop this behavior even when playing. We have tried the water bottle as well.

Sammie's mission.

Hey everyone Sammie had her first surgery on her right leg a week ago and as you may know she needs surgery on both legs. Well her left is doing even worse. She hasn't been raising much money on corgipals lately for us to afford these surgeries. Please spread the word so we can get both her ACL surgeries payed for! The vet won't let us get the surgery without paying it afterwords. Her link for fundraising money will be below. Please donate or spread the word!!!!…

What will my puppy look like?

Hello, I recently bought my first corgi, his name is Señor and I love the little guy. He is now 10 weeks old and very smart and active.

I´m pretty sure he is a sable, he has a little bit of white around his nose and down his neck and chest and has white toes. I don´t know how much his color is going to change, and how far are the white parts going to spread.

Did anyone had a similar puppy that can show me the puppy vs. adult pictures?…
