BAD NEWS

Hello -

I just wanted to see if anyone has any experience with urethral cancer in a spayed female.  We just found out on Saturday that Gracie has a tumor which will ultimately block her from being able to pee and there is nothing that can be done.  We do have her on an NSAID and are hoping this will shrink the tumor to give her longer.  I really have no idea how long she has with us - she is a healthy 11 year old and is not acting any different than she did 6 years ago....(except the…

Altoid first aid kit pet/people version

I have been toying with the idea of making an altoid first aid kit for outings with Becca. I've checked online for suggestions and have some basic ideas for what to include. I'd like to merge them into a kit for people and dogs. It will be used for everything from the beach to hikes.

My list so far:

Benedryl

bandaids

gauze pads

alcohol pads

neosporin

duct tape wrapped around a mini sharpie

tweezers or small knife including…

Is obedience training necessary?

Gutie is 6mo and is incredibly smart/obedient.  He knows how to sit, lay down, come, stay, roll over, play dead, bark/howl on cue, touch an object when pointed to, nose a bell when it's time to potty, heel, dance in a circle, jump through a hoop, kennel up, high five, shake, wave hi/bye... among other various tricks.  I've heard that training classes are also an excellent way to teach good behaviors and socialize but Gutie is such a good boy.  He doesn't jump on anyone (children especially)…

Dougal proves Law of Conservation of mass!

If the food intake is restricted (165g / 6-7 ozs of high fibre kibble) and the poos are getting larger (and they were never small!), then QED the corgi must be shrinking....and he is: big boned (that euphemism cuts across species) Dougal has lost a kilo (2.2 lbs) so far. There may actually be a waistline lurking under that fluffy coat and his belly doesn't appear to be quite as close to the ground. Now if only I could apply the human equivalent to myself!

another update, Watson grows up

Watson is one and a half years old and still a joy to live with. He loves to play fetch and aggravate Izzy who is way too cool to play games with him. I am in full remission from cancer and am hoping that it lasts a long time. It is great to be free of chemo and start getting hair and…

Sad Sad day...

So it's been a while since I've been on here. But I wanted to inform everyone that Domo has passed away. It breaks my heart to hear the news. I just came back from deployment and I was just waiting to pick him up and have him run into my arms. Now I won't get the chance to do so. I just wish I could have seen him just one more time.

I'm just curious if any of you have lost a corgi and how long did it take you to get another dog, if you did so.

Gone Too Long

I've been a silent lurker for awhile, not because Ellie gives me nothing to talk about, but because I've settled into my role as a Corgi parent and handle things as they come up with minimal panicking. I'm quick to take Ellie to the vet, even the emergency vet once, so I get most of the advice I need straight from him. I came online today and read some posts about Corgis who hate heat, and it reminded me of the value of participating more actively in this community.

Ellie has been…

Corgi IQ? Hah! Never fear...

The scene: A shady bosque in the backyard, where the Human is taking its morning coffee and the Corgis are doing whatever dogs do in backyards.
