Aloha from Wini with a limp.

Aloha! Well it seems Wini has a sore right back hip and is limping I flew her over to another island to see the Vet. He says she has loose hips. She was given joint supplements and an anti-inflamatory. After about 3 weeks of light a activity, special diet and the Rx... she is worse. We are so worried. She is 3 1\2 yes old and so sweet, smart, happy and fun. She is our best friend. Any thoughts would be welcomed. Mahalo!…

Day 2 Update: Ruby Repatriation

Okay, so we're in the second day of The Plan to get Ruby civilized enough to survive life at the Funny Farm in the wake of at least one and possibly two more fun surgeries on The Human. After despairing as to whether I would be able to keep Ruby in the face of growing female/female competition plus a ridiculous unending series of increasingly wearing surgical procedures, friends and corgi fanciers began to…

Wheel of Fortune

I was in the kitchen and the TV was on in the TV room.  Suddenly there is frantic barking-as if the doorbell had been rung.  It stops and starts again a few seconds later.

Does anyone else have corgis who think the bell for the letters on Wheel of Fortune is the doorbell?

Ruby Repatriation: Day 1!

Well! Maybe I've been making a great deal more of the Ruby/Cassie doggy rivalry than fits the parameters of reality. It's been a surprising day...for a change, pleasantly surprising.

My son brought Ruby back to the Funny Farm today, after about a week of dog-sitting at his house while I recuperated from a painful surgical procedure. You may recall that the…

Advice Solicited: Corgi Rivalry, Corgi Future

A serious issue has arisen -- actually, two serious issues merging into one -- and I'm seeking advice on how to deal with it/them. If Ruby the Corgi Pup (about 9 months old now) is to keep her home here at the Funny Farm, I'm going to have to find a way to cope with this stuff. If not, Ruby is going to have to find a new home.

Right now she's at my son's house. Even though Ruby and Charley the Golden Retriever adore each other and get along well, he does not want two dogs.…

Need Some Help For A Friend...The One Who Lost Her Pup To Parvo

For those who may remember my posts on the thread regarding parvo about my friend who lost her brand new pup immediately after getting her.  She brought the pup home on a Thursday late afternoon, by the next day the pup was sick and at the vet's, the diagnosis was parvo.  The vet treated the pup for 4 days but she was so young she just couldn't fight it.  This pup...chocolate lab...along with several of it's litter mates were released to their new owner's at 6 weeks....several hours after…

At My Wits End....

My 2 Kids... Baxter & Bailey.  I am at a loss.  Baxter is 6 - Bailey is 4.  Both are AKC Pembrokes.  I obtained both as puppies, the original intent was to join the ranks as a breeder of quality, hand raised pups.  Long story, but the decision was made to spay and neuter and enjoy the dogs as loved pets.

Their living relationship has been one of 2 alpha characters living under the same roof.  So the challenges have been numerous. Between Tasmanian fights, always challenging "me…

Cleaning Lady as Corgi Nemesis?

What with the surgery (singular) I thought I was facing, I hired a neighbor's cleaning lady to help with the house, since I knew I wouldn't be able to do the usual amount of physical labor needed to keep the Funny Farm running. Now that "one" surgery has morphed into an endless series of surgeries, it looks like Liz (as we'll call her) is officially a semipermanent employee.

{sigh} The trouble with cleaning ladies -- even the best of them, as Liz happens to be -- is that you…

The quiet...

... is the hardest part. Not hearing this little paws on the hardwood floors or scolding the cats when they are doing something they shouldn't be, reminds me of him.

It's now been two months since we lost Ein, and while the hurt has dissipated a great deal (or maybe it's I've just gotten used to it), the hole in Meg and I's lives has not. Even Olivia, my 14 year old kitten, has been impacted. While they were not close close, she tolerated his antics and such. Since his…
