It's My Birthday!!





Today is Marcus' first birthday (and his first full day home with us!) In addition to posing for pretty pictures, he gets to go to the park today and run around like a crazy Corgi.







And, he got a 24 inch long Bully Stick, and a… Continue

Birthday and Registered Names

Waffle, what are you hiding from? Is it... YOUR BIRTHDAY? 

 

 

Well, time beats on.  You're an adult now!  No more excuses. ... Okay, some excuses.  You're cute enough for extra leniency.

 

Anyways, I am a bad mom.  I haven't registered him yet, and if I don't in the next month, it is going to cost $85 to do so. ... Instead of the…

A new Corgi

I am the proud owner of a new Welsh Pembroke Corgi. He was just born on my birthday - June 9. This is my first Corgi; I had two lab springers. They were very sweet and such a big part of my life. I decided to "downsize" and so I am adopting a Corgi. I can't wait to get him sometime in mid-July.

I have a Corgi!!



After a very successful visit this morning, we have brought home Marcus, and I finally have my very own Corgi, after years of wanting one. So far, Marcus is settling in well. He ate his dinner well, and has been playing with all the toys and chews that we got for him.



I'm so happy… Continue

Thought I would share our story...

My fiance and I looked all over for a Corgi. We called a few breeders but by the time we heard back all the pups were adopted, if we were called back at all. One night on our way to the store we stopped randomly at a pet store by us just to look at other breeds and in the very first pen were two Corgi puppies. We took home our baby that night. I would have like to find a breeder but it didn't matter after seeing her. The next morning we noticed she wasn't very active. At one point she wouldn't… Continue

New to the site and lookin to get my paws wet~!

Hey~!

 

New to the site. Thought I might sign up so that my chances of finding that corgi-just-for-me would improve. I have to say trying to find a corgi is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, though it probably doesn't help that I'm short either. I've been on a corgi hunt for what seems forever now. I started looking way back in fall, getting into all sorts of information and location breeders and such.

 

I really would rather adopt a corgi or corgi mix…

Couple Questions???

Ok. So I have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He is 12 weeks old. And we have been giving him 1/4 cup of food 3 times a day. He seems to still be hungry when he finishes his food. Should we give him more food or maybe the same amount but 4 or 5 times a day? Also, his ears are beginning to stand up. I have noticed that it is time to clean his ears. What is the best way to this without hurting him? Thank you for your help!!!

Corgi Pet Insurance Recommendations?

Hi,

 

I have a corgi puppy that is about to turn a year old and he is also my first dog.

I'm thinking about getting pet health insurance for him but am not sure how to start or which one to take. Since when I googled it there were so many options I got a little overwhelmed.

Plus, I have been told my some that it is not necessary for pet insurance until they are much older, but am not really sure what to do here.

 

Anyone have advice for me please?

Wine Dogs!!

On our local CBS tv station tonight, there was a segment about Australian photographers being in the Traverse City, MI area taking photos of dogs at the vineyards.  There were two Corgis in the video, but weren't mentioned altho one barked!  Good Boy or Girl!!  The Corgis were on top of a wine barrel for the picture.  These people put out a calendar and also books.  Some of the dogs have a wine with their picture on the label:)

 

I'd love to share it with everyone, but I can't…

Weird dogs

I've fostered several dogs now, and 2 of which have been corgis (Winston, and Gunner).

On a normal day I would say that my own 2 rescue corgis are , well, normal. That is until I foster a corgi...



With Winston:

I just thought "Ok, so I…

She can swim!

Will someone please tell me why I thought Isabella would sink like a hot rock?  Ha Ha.

 

We recently moved to a new house with a pool and I've been so nervous about her falling in.  I never leave her unattended in the yard.  Her butt has slipped in once, but I fished her out in a split second.  I even considered a doggie life vest, just in case...

 

Now that the weather is warming up, the kids have been in the pool several times.  Isabella goes NUTS and runs…

Visiting Marcus Sunday!

So I found out a little over a week ago that the breeder that I was hoping to get a puppy from had a 12 month old show prospect that had grown beyond breed standards. I spoke to her about him on the phone, and we've been emailing back and forth, and we are going to meet him this Sunday.



He sounds like an awesome dog, and judging from the picture, he has potentially the sweetest, most adorable little… Continue

The Countdown To Arrival - Part 2

My little girl is working her magic already, and she's not even here with us yet.  I was having a rather "blah" day until I noticed an e-mail from my puppy's breeder sitting in my inbox.  I opened it up and, sure enough, I saw puppies!  Well, just one puppy, but there were four new pictures!

 

Here she is chasing after her Momma.  Whee!

Home Alone

Bugsy is a year & a third now. He's been home during the week for almost a month with no incident. Except...

Yesterday there was a piece of cardboard within reach (what is it with cardboard?)

Last week he had an "accident" & felt ashamed, but I told him he was a good boy because for some reason he thought maybe he should go in the bathtub. (talk about easy clean-up!)

I just keep the bedroom door closed or else he'll lay in my bed all day.

We have a really…

Eww...

So our little Ein came back from his first vet visit with a lovely case of giardia and whipworm.... *shudder*... 

 

Luckily he hasn't shown any symptoms yet. He has been a little lethargic since we adopted him last week, but we feel most of that can be attributed to being in a new environment. Now, on top of settling in to a new home, our little boy gets to look forward to 5 days of deworming meds followed by a trip to the tub for a thorough cleaning. 

 

I, on the…

Oops, nearly killed my dog.

I forgot to report about how I nearly killed poor Reagan. So I will now.

 

We had the sprinkler on because here in Houston it's been approximately a thousand degrees for the past few weeks and we've had approximately negative 10 inches rain. We usually let the dogs play in it while water. Reagan and Didi like to dance in the water and bite at the nozzles.

 

So we sat outside for about 30 minutes and then it was dinner time. We decided to leave the dogs outside to…

Can this happen.

LO doesn't seem to have any undercoat, only thing that comes out is long top coat (white or red). Usually when petting him so I know that it is his topcoat. Bootsie just got about a ton of undercoat out last night, that is the more shorter hairs right?

Our first vet visit

Took Cocosette to the vet for a puppy check-in.  She was mostly calm about the entire affair-- the weighing, nail clipping, temp taking (Ay!) and the doc's exam.  Her only objections were to the shot and, oddly enough, the dose of de-wormer.  I've only had her for a week, but she's already growing like a weed; added another pound since her last weigh-in.  The vet had lovely, soft hands manipulating Cocosette and gave me some…
