Hillary our Corgle

I have been looking at all of the photos posted on the site and these are some beautiful Corgis. Our is a Corgi mix and I hope it is okay to be part of this site. We thought we wanted another golden - until we saw Hillary. Except for lazy ears, Hillary looks and acts like a tri-color. It is fun to see her characteristics reflected in the stories you all tell.

Boundless Energy

Ofelia loves to run circles around the apartment. I can't imagine what it sounds like to the neighbors downstairs, her rapid pitter patter. She gets so excited. She's actually at her most annoying when she's excited. She jumps and barks and nips, and when I try to discipline her she thinks it's a game. Then it makes me laugh and she goes running off again.



I finally got my first post-college job. And once I've saved enough money, I'm going to put Ofie in herding classes. I already… Continue

Happy Birthday Trunks!

Today is Trunks's fourth birthday. He was born the last puppy in a litter of seven, five boys and two girls. We will be celebrating his birthday with doggy ice cream and a new toy!

I just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my little Cardi boy!

Horses

Zim loves horses. I take him out to the ranch where him and Sunny's mom lives and he starts whining before we even get to the place. He is usually fairly mellow but he gets so excited the minute we pull into the driveway- it's so cute. He gets to hang out and run around with his mom while learning to do what he is bred to do while I get ready to go riding. It's so amazing to watch. I feel for the horses as soon as Sunny gets big enough- watch out, 3 corgis and a bossipoo on the loose (the… Continue

Political corgis

I assume everyone is aware that the Democratic Convention was held in Denver this week. You may not know that the puppies got in on the act. Our dog boutique was wise in ordering a bunch of fun political items before the convention, such as "Bark Obama" bandannas and the ever popular Bush Biscuits(crunch, crunch, he's gone), as well as things for "John McCanine" supporters so no one was left out. We had a very good week!

Banjo and Starbuck hung out on our the patio meeting and greeting,… Continue

Corgi - Bladder Infection

Hi all - I have a 10 month old female Corgi that was diagnosed with a bladder infection. No information was provided on how the infection started, but she is now on Clavamox. Being one with a history of baldder infections, I know the pain in her look… she stands on the grass and looks at me as if to say, just leave me here, I know I will need to go again soon! ;0( Has anyone had their dogs diagnosed with bladder infections? Does anyone know of any causes? Any other information shared is totally… Continue

Just a little bit about me...

This doesn't have to do with my corgi...but I've been going thru some hard times lately as some of you know...It's been almost a month since my husband left me, after only being married for 2 months. Each day is a struggle for me...to get up, go to work, and go home to an empty house (minus my pets). We started marriage counseling last night, and I'm trying to stay positive about it, and all I know is if I didn't have my darling Abby, my life would be hell. She will not allow me to be sad. She… Continue

LA to SF Roadtrip!!

We celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary with a road trip up to the Bay Area. We were hesistant about bringing the dogs because its such a long drive and we didn't know how they would handle it, but decided it wouldn't be the same without them and planned a trip to include them in the fun.



Fortunately, the dogs did great in the car... even on the hairpin turns of the PCH!! The trip up took 11 hours, but we made frequent stops to let them run around.…

Dog Park

How do I know when Ein is ready to go to a dog park? He still doesn't come reliably and I thought that was when you could take him to the park. But, I really want him to socialize more and I think it would be fun to go to a dog park.

Shaved Corgi..

Owen and I went to the park today. I think secretly he hoped to see his corgi friends again. I did to.. he let them clean him - smelly puppy with dirty ears.. nothing like an older dog to put a pup in his place with a good cleaning. Owen doesn't really smell that bad though.. I just thought it was hilarious to watch the three adult corgis go to town on him.



Owen got to play with a lab puppy and had a great time. It warms my heart every time he plays with another dog- proud mommy. He… Continue

Nibbling when scratched?

Well, I'll try to describe this the best I can. Ever since I got Abby, like every dog, she LOVES belly rubs and will kick her back legs when I hit a good spot. BUT...she ALSO will start to nibble on my arm, like those old cartoon characters would eat corn...ya know? I just want to start making that typewriter noise...*tick, tick, tick, tick, DING!* It doesn't hurt and I think it's the funniest quirk about her...she uses her front nubbly teeth and just nibbles in little rows on my arm back and… Continue

SO scared.... Will I have to give him up???

First, a warning: this is LONG, so get comfy!



I am near tears over this right now.... I've already cried about it twice.



For those who have not read my profile: Two weeks ago we found a male corgi wandering around our neighborhood in the country. He had no tags of any kind, and appeared to have been dumped, because we noticed him just wandering around aimlessly without any supervision. We had seen him a few times before, and this was the case every time (wandering without… Continue

Shedding

I have a 5 1/2 month old Corgi named Chipper. He's the best!!! (which I'm sure everyone says about their corgi - haha). However, he sheds a LOT. He eats high-end puppy food (Eukenuba lamb & rice) and we brush him pretty frequently. It's usually his hind end and tail that shed the most but he's pretty sensitive - as in you can brush him for a few minutes with the wire brush but then he hates it. Any suggestions how to keep the shedding to a minimum?

A New Baby

Our family is proud to welcome our new addition: Sourdoughs Sunny Day aka Sunny. He is a cute little red and white ball of fluff that is brother to my other wonder corgi Zim!!

Well played, starbucks.

So as I awoke from my morning nap I remembered that Didi had not been fed yet. I go to feed her and find myself scraping the bottom of her food-container. Yippees.

On my way to Petco, with Didi in co-pilot position, I stop at Starbucks for a tea. This is a drive through starbucks so all the Barristas came to lean out the window and go, "Aaaaww... puppy!". Didi sat in her co-pilot seat and regarded them with a silent dignity. This silent dignity flew out the window when one of the girls… Continue

Gibson's first weekend

Well, we went and picked up Gibson this Saturday as planned :) He's the cutest puppy ever, I swear. And he's so incredibly smart. He's already learned 'come' and 'no' and he's only had *knock on wood* one accident in the house! Everything else has been outside :) And the first night he slept all the way through w/o whining once (today he needed to potty at 5am, but that's still pretty good for a little puppy, i'd say!). His favorite thing to do is run around the yard. He will follow me and my… Continue

Friends, Second Time Swimming and Moving!

My hair dresser has two lovely corgis and when I went to go get my hair done on Saturday I brought Izzie along to play with Dorothy and Henry. Dorothy and Izzie spent the afternoon running around the shop and outside chasing each other and generally having a good time. She and Henry also get along real well but Dorothy kind of like to be an attention hog so she takes up Izzie's time. ;-) Sine Lily isn't much of a player, it's good to get Izzie out and playing with other doggies. I wanted to… Continue

Fluffy or not update

It seems that none of the puppies are fluffies! Even the little tri girl that I thought for sure was fluffy, turns out just long puppy coats.
I posted a new picture of Scooter one of the fluffy "suspects" and her coat is beginning to look more like the usual corgi puppy coat. So I ended up with 3 puppies with shorter coats and 3 puppies with longer coats and no fluffs. Always something interesting with corgi puppies.

Visit to the Huntington Beach Dog Beach and a Meetup with the Huntington Beach Corgis Group.

Mac had a big day today. My Mom, Mac, and I went to the Huntington Beach Dog Beach. Mac splashed around in the water and made friends with several dogs, including another Corgi named Buddy. Later, we visited the Huntington Beach Dog Park to meet up with a group of other Corgi Owners. The Huntington Beach Corgis Meetup group meets every Sunday at about 10AM and later. I counted about 9 Corgis and 3-4 non-Corgis. During our stay some left and others came.



You can view pictures of the… Continue
