I'm so excited that Suzy has now had her last set of shots! She can finally go for a dip in the pond as I know she's been dying to do every time we go for a walk. We're halfway through puppy training too, and she is starting to be a little less crazy around all the dogs there. The potty training has gone exceptionally well since I trained her to ring a bell by the door to go outside. I think the only thing I'm frustrated with is that she still uses her puppy teeth a little too much when playing… Continue

Hey everyone! I'm here again asking for advice. I volunteered to help a friend out and keep her puppy for her while she was on vacation this week. Actually, I'm using the term "volunteer" loosely. I didn't really volunteer so much as get roped into this task, but hey...I should learn to say no, so it's not my friend's fault really.
The pup is an 8 week old Tea Cup Chihuahua and Shih Tsu mix. They got her only a couple of weeks ago (barely 6 weeks old) and apparently she has not had to be… Continue

We pickep up Penelope yesterday and she is great. She is so sweet loves to cuddle and give kisses. She did so well on the ride home which was 6+ hours. She was so ready to play when we got home and boy did she play, and try to bite everything. We have to watch her constantly. But, everything is going well so far. She is by herself right now which is making me nervous, but I'll be hom in about 45 minutes to see how she is. Hopefully, she is just chilling her crate! She goes to the vet today too.… Continue

Roscoe got neutered on Thursday. He just had to stay at the vet for the day (not overnight). My boyfriend dropped him off and I got him that evening. He was awake, but looked so drugged out. Like, he would focus on me, but I could tell he was so out of it. He slept on the way home, and made it outside to pee and potty fine that evening. Then he pretty much dropped for the night. It was the first time in a while I got to cuddle and hold him without him trying to play. He was back to normal… Continue

Yesterday afternoon, after only leaving the house for a short period of time, I found Corky on the flood. She had gotten into the trash and pulled out a snack bag which was caught over her head. I can't find the words to describe the pain and sadness I am feeling. I keep running over scenarios in my head about what I could have done, how I could have gotten home sonner, in order to prevent this from happening. I feel so guilty and like there is a hole in my heart. I love Corky and want to see… Continue

Hi guys. I need some advice...
Daisy has been heaving at 4 a.m. every morning for the last 2 weeks. We went to the vet who said that sometimes puppies can get an upset stomach from being in the crate...I had just changed the food at the time, so we thought maybe it was just upsetting her. We have changed foods (Beneful to Iams), but she is still doing it!
Daisy goes to bed at 10:30, and we get up at 7. Sometimes she doesn't heave up anything; other times she hacks up puppy… Continue

Thor has just past six weeks of age, and he has started eating puppy food and his ears are already up. The others ears are all somewhat floppy but his are already perked up and alert. I have a date for Thor to come home now, May 31, and I can't wait, less than two weeks and I can play with him more than once a week.

So we took our little Sulley to Playa Pacifica Park on a visit to San Diego (we were searching for a new home), and adjacent to the park is an inlet. We walked Sulley over to the inlet. My husband then waded into the water and he was followed by Sulley who bounded in behind. Sulley was so excited and was swimming around in the water. We pulled him out as soon as I saw a jellyfish though (much to Sulley's dismay). I wasn't sure how he would take to the water but he loves it.

Today was such a beautiful day but too hot to go inland, so we took the dogs to the ocean town of Carlsbad instead. Carlsbad has a great downtown area that is nice to stroll around in and visit all kinds of shops. We walked along the ocean for awhile. It was beautiful and we met lots of dogs, even a cute corgi named Ein.
Here is Sid with his "mom" (my daughter) with our view of the ocean:… Continue

Well, yesterday was May 16, 2008. The day Kara Jayne joined our family of 5. (7 if you count the cats). The older 2 kids headed off to school, the toddler to daycare and Chris and I made the 2 1/2 hour drive to Adams, NY where we met Kara, her 2 sisters, brother, and parents. They were all so wonderful. Chris and I got into the dog run to meet the puppies. They all came to meet us. After a few minutes Chris pointed down to a little fluff of fur that had sat onhis foot and fallena sleep. He… Continue

Well today we got Jake. He is finally with us. Two weeks earlier than we had thought, but we are so happy. Is is such a sweet dog!!! Hes 8 months but has lived in the desert and seems a little nervous about some things in the city. Any ideas on the best way to go about getting him used to the surroundings?
I will be sure to post some pictures tonight!!!!

Oh, i can't contain my excitement. Last night we picked up Steve's baby brother and we're just so excited. The pup's name is still TBD but we have top contenders - Derick, Tyler, Turtle. I agree, "Turtle" is a little out there but it just seems to fit this little guy - hmmm, maybe we can use it as a nickname for him.
The pup was born 2-25-08 and he was spoken for by someone else but something happened where she couldn't bring a puppy into her house. Since the breeder knew… Continue

I started back at work and was pleasantly suprised how well Cheez-it is handling the matter. He doesnt fuss when I leave and he is quiet when I come home. I leave him out all the time when I am home and even let him sleep outside the kennel now for his many puppy-naps. (which have decreased in frequency by 300% since 8wks). I try my best to wear him out before I leave and before he goes to bed, but he is "always" awake now. I imagine because he sleeps all day while I am gone. After the 5 hour… Continue

How old should a corgi be before they will attempt steps safely? Our steps are wood or stone, no carpet.

I'm so thrilled, my hubby finally agreed to go ahead with getting a second corgi! I know he has his reservations, but I'm glad he conceded. Honestly, I tried not to push too hard :) I have a breeder picked out and hope to see the puppies next weekend. Yipee!! Wanting something for over a year is hard for a person like me. Hehe! So the excitement begins, and I'm so happy! Who's got a name nomination?!?!

i went to the corgi fair last year (dixon, ca) and i noticed that kaijuu is puny compared to those other corgis (both pems and cardis)
and i noticed a lot of owners on this site that have dogs that arent so fat/chubby~
kaijuu was 25lbs after he was neutered, and perhaps 30lbs now. but i think its because hes so muscular? its not FAT thats on him, its just muscle weight .. or am i lying to myself?
he doesn't eat that much, maybe 1cup to 2cups. depending on his… Continue

I have had Rocky for two weeks today. It is amazing how fast time goes! He is already over 10 pounds and loving his new home. He went to the vet this past Monday just to make sure that everything is still fine from the little surgery he had to have and has a clean bill of heath. He gets along great with my bigger dog (Amos my 2 year old Aussie) and he loves to go to the barn with me every day when I go to ride. I must admit though he is a little on the spoiled side - he gets to sleep with me… Continue

Well I finally have great news. After searching high and low all over the state of Florida, I think I finally have my puppy.
Let's rewind to two weeks ago when I met the breeder and the puppies for the first time. There were five gorgeous puppies out of nine originally (the mother killed 4 :( unfortunately). There were two girls, both fluffy, and three males. I decided beforehand that I wanted a male. All three males I could have taken home that day, but one caught my eye right off… Continue
