Agility Drop-in Classes

Our trainer is having agility "drop-in" classes every Wednesday. Each week, she sets up a course and people bring their dogs and it's almost like a trial-like atmosphere. Yesterday was our first class. The Novice course she set up was 16 obstacles (weaves, 2 tunnels, a-frame, dogwalk, and 11 jumps.) After walking the course and watching a few of the more experienced handlers run it, Baxter and I were up for the challenge. On our first run Baxter only had one refusal. I was so impressed at…

My baby is 1 today!!!

Today is Ginger's first birthday.  Man, how time flies!  I can't believe that it was a year ago that I was waiting anxiously for her to be born.  It's been a crazy year, as she's on the high-strung end of the corgi personality spectrum, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!  I'm picking up her birthday cake after work from a doggy bakery.  Hopefully I can upload some pictures tonight.  I keep telling my husband it's time to get another one, but he's not having any of it! :)  Happy Birthday… Continue

Thanks for the puppy praises!

Thanks for all of the gushing over the puppies.  Regardless of all of my grumblings I know that we have been blessed.

Lando Oliver poops when scared.

Rexx again attacked Lando Oliver, rexx has these phases where we think he is not all their and it lasts for a few days. Bootsie will show his tummy when Rexx goes over to him but I guess LO ha a little more domination but rexx is a bigger dog. Anyhow LO will not only pee but poop when rexx goes for him, how strange is that. LO pees when he is excited but doesn't poop. Like he will pee sometimes when someone comes over. Man I need cesar or someone to come sort this stuff out, it is wearing on… Continue

leash walking break through

I think I am the one who needs to go to training class. I think it should be called, new puppy owner class, cause we are the ones that need to know how to show our dogs what we want. I have been trying all kinds of things to teach Quin loose leash walking. She always pulls ahead and I keep the leash by my side and gently pull her back to my side. So she will walk beside me but gradually get faster and I have to pull the leash tight so she comes back. Well today as she was walking beside me, I… Continue

Choice of Collars

I'm sure this subject has come up before, but couldn't find what  you like best for stopping a puller. Holly is 4 1/2 months and I know a lot of it is puppy and being excited when she goes out for walks . We are fine after she settles down with just a plain nylon collar, but going to puppy obedience class or  being around other poeple or dogs---no way! I got the Sporn No Pull Harness and at first it seemed to work, but now she pulls like a husky in it. I know to release when she gives in and…

Let's Party!

Yesterday was Noodles 6th birthday. He received a new set of rings because he plays tug-o-war so much. He also got a jumbone for dinner and a birthday card from his Grammy and Gramps with treats in it. Of course I made him his peanut butter birthday cake with cottage cheese and carrots on top. Hey, he loves it! The first picture is a nice one and he is smiling. In the 2nd picture, the hat was sliding off his head and he looks pretty upset about that. In the last picture, he was glad to be…

My Lily

So, she won't let me take any pictures of her yet, but I have my baby! Hopefully once I figure out how to turn noises off on the camera, I will be able to get some. Lily and Coco are getting to be good friends now, even though Coco thinks she is suddenly an old lady now that she is the big sister. Lily has only destroyed one thing so far, a small hole in the carpet in my room. My dad didn't crate her when he left for rescue, and she was out an hour before I got home from work. It doesn't really… Continue

Bento is here!

We drove back from Bakersfield, and Bento is officially home!  The drive back was uneventful.  He slept almost the entire way, and he didn't have any accidents.  Of course, as soon as he started to whine, we pulled over and let him out. Once we got home, he started to explore.  

 

Aside from a few accidents (really need to get that Bissell Spotbot), totally our fault because we weren't paying attention, he's great at whining and looking at you in the face to show that he needs…

Corgi Portraits!

Hello everyone,

 

Here is a pencil portrait I did of my Bartleby. I'm taking commissions if anyone is interested in getting their corgi or another pet done. This one still needs to be cleaned up a little bit. I can do pencil, pen, watercolor, pastels, or digital painting. Let me know if you're…

Bad Breath!

Recent vet visit made us realize how negligent we have been in taking care of Cookie's teeth.  Has anyone used a enzymatic spray for dog teeth?

We went to the Lake Proctor beach today, and had the entire thing to ourselves.

We ate clay and decided it wasn't that great, tried on Winnie's Corgi Floatation Device, AKA the "Corgmarine," and learned that FRAPing on sand is 10 times more fun!

The time is now!

After much researching and waiting, my husband and I will be heading down to pick up our corgi.  We'll spend the night at a hotel and then go to the breeder to bring Bento Box home the next morning.  We can't wait!!  All the work will culminate to a corgi puppy!

Manhattan Corgis??

Hey! I just recently moved to NYC and was curious if there are any clubs, groups, and/or events about Corgis in NYC. As you might see from my profile pic, I have an adorable Pembroke name Colonel. He's still under a year old, but I dedicate almost all my spare time to training, socializing and just plain spending time with him :) So can anyone help me out? thanks!

Moving Day!

Well, Today is the day I move out of my small efficiency apartment.  I found a house for rent 7 miles from where my new job is, and my landlord's wife saw Scout's picture and already loves her!!!  So I will be going from barely enought space to walk around to a 3 bedroom house.  Guess that's 1 for me and 2 for the corgi.  Rent is less than I would have expected.  Yeah, utilities will be more, but I will make more than enough to cover it.

We have a big yard (shared but still a great…

First Agility Course

It has almost been a year since Baxter started agility. Last night we ran our very first course. It was 15 obstacles (2 tunnels, weaves, and 12 jumps.) After walking the course a couple times with the trainer, we were ready to give it a go. On our first try, we missed two jumps and Baxter missed the very start of the weaves (I think the numbers threw him off,) but on the plus side we successfully navigated a very tight lined jump. It was so much fun!!

 

After breaking the…

It wasn't one I posted.  I was listening to my iPod on my way to work and I figured it out.  I just had to use it.
