So I got two harnesses, one for Ruby and one for Cassie, to jury-rig the proposed car tie-downs. That doesn't seem like the greatest idea ever to hit the pike. BUT... I decided to try using them for the daily doggy walk, instead of their collars.
Cassie, a grown dog, is not a dragger. But Ruby the Corgi Pup is only just beginning to get the "heel" idea. She will drag for half a block or so, until her ginger wears down and she remembers. The other day I'd put a rolled leather…Continue
So Ruby Doo and I are driving to the vet, there to get her conjunctivitis checked. Actually, I'm driving. She's riding in her crate, which is supposed to protect her in the event of a highway mishap. The crate is tied down with the only credible tool I have to use as a tie-down: to wit, clothesline rope.
Not far into this journey, one of my Fellow Homicidal Drivers (you have to live in Arizona to appreciate this nomenclature) tries to kill us. In maneuvering out of reach, I…Continue
I've been reading and really enjoying Amy & Rubi Rae's discussion, "Rubi Proves Herself Worthless at Guard Dog Duty." If you haven't seen this post and its comments yet,…Continue
What is going on here?
Ruby the Corgi Pup was doing fine in the house-training department, once we addressed the UTI that she apparently had at the time she arrived here at 8 weeks of age.
Recently, she started peeing on the floor again. So forthwith it was back to the vet: he couldn't find an infection but did see some crystals (which it develops are not out of the ordinary in dogs and may not indicate pathology). But he put her back on Clavamox and the…Continue
So I went away for about a week and a half to help my dad move down to North Carolina, from Upstate NY. It was a grueling 14hr drive one way.
I left the dog home because (a)my Aunt doesn't really like dogs, and (b) her fiance is severely allergic to animals. Like we went to a Zoo and he broke out and had an attack just from being at the Zoo, and this guy loves animals to death, I really feel bad for him.
So I left my dog at home, with my fiance. We had a training plan in order,…Continue
I've posted over 60 videos of Wally, motorbiking, sky diving, plane flying, etc. but none became viral.
The reason I do those videos is mostly for a virtual album and for my mother who's in a home and does not have any computer skill. Therefore, bringing her a burnt DVD with the videos when I visit is a way to put a smile on her face. Plus, in order to create a viral you can't have any copyright material so therefore the music from the web that makes such an impact on clips,…Continue

Ruby the Corgi Pup is thriving on the "Real Food" (as I like to call it) that she's been getting since recovering from her UTI and subsequent spate of projectile doggyrhea. Her growth has resumed, her shiny coat practically glows in the dark, and she's full of ginger. She and Cassie have learned to play tug o'war together with some very silly-looking toys recently acquired at Costco, and for the past hour they've been sharing a frenzy over Ball.
Cassie has had Real Food ever…Continue
Today Pumpkin is 13! Am I the luckiest, I know I'm the happiest because of her. Of course she's slower but she still hops along for her walk, she sleeps much more and that's when the grey around her eyes shows, but most of the time she looks like a puppy. Play...oh yeah, never ignores a toy, gets each one out of the basket, shakes it and growls. She always makes me laugh. It's a very, very…Continue
