Just after a weekend of rest (a much much MUCH needed rest at that!) Baxter and I were back out competing at another trial. This trial was closer to home, but the travel to and from was very taxing. We are definitely learning a lot when it comes to which trials to chose in the future!
Open Standard - A very nice course except... uh oh! Tunnel/A frame discrimination? It's…Continue
My daughter is 18 months and I'm always telling her to be gentle, and I always discipline her when she gets to rough, then praise my dogs, sometimes cats, and I never leave her unsupervised. The things they put up with....
I gotta give Pilot major props for what he puts up with when it comes to my daughter...
My daughter has the habit of grabbing his tail and pulling on it lately, along with grabbing his back and sides; poor dog, sits/stands there looking at me with his big sad…
I was going to wait until I picked up Baby Mavvy to post more pictures, but I got more from the breeder and just had to share.
Less than 3 Weeks…Continue
UPDATE: I am sad to let you guys know that when my boyfriend called the owner so we can get her as planned once my bf got out of work, he told us that his roommate gave her away while he was at school without his permission. We were so upset, and felt like we were too late on the draw. I was getting excited just thinking about having two corgis to look after. I feel like we may have failed this poor girl. I hope that whoever has her now will take good care of her. I just wish it was…Continue
So, during Ein's recovery period from her spay surgery, I knew we might have some trouble with getting her to go the bathroom in the yard, but if she had no where else to go, she had no choice, right? And of course she held it and held it and held it. One call to the vet had a vet tech telling me that it would be okay to drive her to the park where she will do her business. So I did that for a couple days. Then I noticed her spay incision seemed open. I don't know if it was from licking or…Continue

Today will be a sad day. Due to my move to California on Sunday, I am having to re-home one of my Pups. After a month of searching for housing in the area I finally found an apartment that will take pets. The catch was that they would only take one pet and one pet only. I tried everything to have them agree to let me have two. Even the offer of a large sum of money wouldn't sway them. They said "if we do it for you, we will have to do it for everyone" I suppose I can understand…Continue
The pups are 5 weeks old now and nearly ready to go to their forever homes and I'm hoping that all you Corgi lovers out there can help me. For my own penance I will tell you what I had been thinking... and why I now need some help from all of you.
I had planned on having them go to a local breeder who has avenues to pet shops in the Denver area (I'm in SW Nebraska) - this based on the recommendation of my local veterinarian (which is why my thoughts even went down this…Continue
Ralph is a big boy, but gosh, do thunderstorms scare the pants off of him! Upon hearing a peal of thunder the other day, he leapt up on the chaise longue and practically sat on my face, trembling like a little (okay, giant) leaf. Poor little (big) guy!

I'm at the end of the first week of having Commissioner Gordon. He is perhaps the most well-behaved puppy I've met (here's hoping I don't jinx myself, haha) Potty training as been a breeze, we've only had two accidents so far. Even in the short span of time I've had him, he's grown a noticeable amount and one of his ears has perked up.
Gordon's only flaw is perhaps his utter fearlessness. He has a gut-wrenching tendency to attempt kamikaze jumps when he is riled up after a…Continue
Funny story time!
Since I live in an apartment (and it has been so hot- stupid drought), I regularly take Camden to the local dog park in the evenings. This particular evening, Camden & I stayed on the little dog area of the park since Camden didn't seem to like a particular dog. He definitely was the big boy in comparison to the Yorkies and dachshunds.
At one point, a stuffing free toy was added to the mix. Initially, an eight pound dachshund named Bella had the…Continue
My corgi fund is no longer empty! My birthday is this Monday so I got $65 today! Tomorrow I should get $60 for babysitting, and when my grandmother sends me my birthday money I'll get another $100! I'll have enough to pay the downpayment and get a few supplies and toys for Rose! My dad is buying Rose herself for me as my present from him!
I don't even know how to process all this happy at once.
Not only has Ziggy played with another dog, but I got him to play with a toy just too!:D
I just O_O I'm gonna keel over, I am way too happy!
It was very lucky, he got into one of his "PLAY TUG-O-WAR WITH YOUR HANDS WITH ME!" modes, and I was close enough to the toy box to reach over, snag a toy, and replaced it.. At first, he wasn't too sure, but he started to really get a grip on it.…Continue
Alright, when it comes to puppy coats I am not sure if my corgi is honestly tri-colored corgi, or if he is just the red and white. Both of his parents are red and white, but I do know how genetics don't necessarily work that way. So my question is, does he have just a puppy coat that looks darker than it will become or is this a blue print of what is to come?
Ziggy played with another dog! It was crazy! They ran around, jumping at one another, Ziggy in full derp mode!:D I feel like I could fly, I'm so elated:D
What's weird? Ziggy wanted to play more than the other dog. I mean, that wouldn't be very weird, except for the fact that Ziggy never wants to do anything!!
At first, it was him hoping around me, playing tug-o-war with my hand when then the other dog in the house, Shadow, came around to see what all the noise was…Continue
Four is my first dog. I find it absolutely incredible how he roams around, with his nose to the ground, eating anything he can. On walks he sniffs ants. Needless to say we don't get very far. In the backyard he eats peaches as they fall from the tree. Inside he is out of control. Besides food Four…Continue
On Sunday I picked up my baby boy Tedy!! His full name is Patriot Tedy B (fairly obvious I named him after Tedy Bruschi, a linebacker for the patriots haha) He was almost 10 weeks old and weighed about 7lbs. He was so sweet and this was the first time he'd ever been away from his mommy! I'm crate training him the same way I crate trained my other dogs in the past and he seems to be picking up on it fairly well except I have to keep a close eye on him because he doesn't bark when he has to…Continue
My breeder is expecting two litters at the beginning of August, which I will pick my little girl from! I'm hoping for a light red girl, but corgis are just so darn cute that color doesn't really matter when it comes down to it! I've already picked out a name for my unborn puppy, Rose! No, it's not from the Titanic, (although I absolutely love that movie!) It's from Doctor Who! I recently became obsessed with the show and anything to do…Continue
