Roughing it

Whew! We just got our electricity reconnected. Due to the horrendous weather that moved through Ohio we were without power since 2:00pm yesterday! We now have a happy little Corgi again. Apparently we were not aware of just how much Cosmo did not like roughing it! His a.c and personal fan are back on! We hope by this time tomorrow he will be speaking to us again!

Life Is Sometimes Like a Roller-coaster

I have definitely been remiss in writing about the new babies. They are hardly babies any more! It is true that two furbabies are more work, but it's a good kind of work. The past two weeks, however, have been something of a record in my personal roller-coaster rides!

June 18th, my wife left for England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales--leading a group from her church. She took our granddaughter with her. They got back yesterday (June 29th). While they were gone, the roller-coaster made…

Iowa trip

Got back yesterday from an overnight trip to Iowa.  Got to stay in a hotel room and everything!  Everything went pretty smoothly, we ride quietly in the care with a seat belt harness on.  We stayed in a hotel room, and found there was another corgi there!  (In the mirror.)  It was too hot to try to find a restaurant where we could eat outside, so we got to visit with the Chinese food delivery person and be adored by her and one of my daughter's friends.

Baya had her nose to the ground…

things my daughter told me

I was having a conversation with my sixteen year old daughter about friends and relationships.  she is a social butterfly,  flittering around,  always in the thick of the action.  she asked me, "dad, why don't you hang out with your friends?"  my reply,  "that's why i have my corgi."

my fuzzy bug zapper

One of Bailie's favorite things to do is to catching a crawling bug. She plays with it for a minute and then plop down and rolls over the bug quite a few times. Then she gets up and looks at almost like she's saying "ahhh you stopped moving". It always makes me laugh when she does this! Anybody else's corgi Chase bugs?

New members

Just wanted to take a second in order for Cosmo and I to say hello and thanks for such a wonderful site. We found it by accident but have been smiling and chuckling ever since. As everyone out there knows, no-one can smile like a Corgi!!

We take Bailie on 20 minute walks for exercise an normally we walk the hiking trails near our home but with summer starting our weather here is scorching hot (103 degrees right now!), its just too hot to take her on outdoor walks. I rendered seeing videos of dogs using treaadmills and i thought that was the perfect solution. My questions are has anyone here taught their corgi to use the treadmill and if so was it difficult? Any pointers? Thanks so much!

Twinkie was not amused...

So Hubby has started this thing with Logan that whenever we are getting ice out of the frig door Logan comes over for an ice cube.  Hubby tells Logan they are "popsicles".  Logan likes them even even though they are plain-flavored.  Last night Twinkie saw the commotion at the frig and got in line for a popsicle.   Logan got his and ran off with his treat.  Twinkie got hers, put it down at my feet and looked at me and said (telepathically), "This is NOT a popsicle.  It is an icecube,  What…

Bird seed

I got a bell shaped birdseed for the birds in the backyard.  I thought it might amuse Chloe.  Today at agility the trainer noticed that Chloe's eyes did not seem as bright, and she was not as eager.  (  Chloe's favorite day is agility and LOVES it)

While we were there Chloe had a BM, and that had some birdseed in it.  I wonder if the seeds could make her have a real upset tummy? Chloe normally does not have a BM on walks or at agility practice. 

I wonder if other…

Ramji went to day camp and then got groomed yesterday. He was fine through the evening until around 1:00 AM when he started coughing and sounding like he was going to throw up. He sounds congested and seems like he's trying to hack something up but nothing comes out.

I'm taking him to see the vet this morning but I wanted to get some…

Ziggy is home:D

Unfortunately, there wasn't video time, and Ziggy didn't get all crazy happy jump aroundy, but I am happy:) You can tell he did miss me, and I missed him more than crazy, so being back together is awesome:D

We got to the airport only ten minutes early, and wound up waiting an hour.. I was starting to have a heart attack telling myself how the plane must really have spontaneously combusted!

Of course, when they actually wheeled Ziggy in, that just made it…

Cardigan Corgi sighting on TV

Did anyone catch the 2nd episode of Bunheads on ABC Family?  There was a cardigan welsh corgi in the later half of the episode. I am not sure if it is a recurring character or not since it is a fairly new show (from the creator of Gilmore Girls so if you like Gilmore Girls  I think you will like Bunheads) but was so excited to see a corgi on tv.

Happy 7th Birthday Noodles!!!

Today is Noodles 7th birthday and we can't imagine our lives without him. Our laptop is dead, but pictures will be taken and posted later on. Since we have evening plans tonight, I made his birthday cake last night and he helped me. My husband took some pictures of Noodles "cleaning" out the 1/4 cup scoop that had the peanut butter in it. Here is a picture of Noodles waiting patiently for me to put his cake in the oven. He stayed in the kitchen (NOT on the counter) until the cake was done…

You're Only a day A-waaay!

Tomorrow I get to see my Ziggy again!:) It's been seven days, and I am going more than a little nuts with missing him! I was more upset to leave him behind than anything else in OR, even though it was only for a little more than a week.  I was upset that I couldn't tell him we were going to be coming back for him, more than anything. Really didn't want him to be upset or sad, of course, it happened, and he wound up whining so much the first night that even though my grandma had tried to keep…
