At first glance, Gizmo might not look like your typical service dog. Maybe that's why people frequently ignore the "Please don't pet me - I'm working" sign she wears in public.
The 8-year-old Welsh corgi is less than half the size of standard service breeds such as golden or Labrador retrievers and, unlike the stereotypical assistance animal, she doesn't guide the deaf or the blind.
"We're all familiar with guide dogs for the blind," said Gizmo's owner,… Continue

Ever since our puppy was little she has never, never liked the vacuum cleaner. We tried in her puppy socialization class to get her to at least tolerate the vacuum cleaner, but it never worked. Now when I take out the vacuum she goes over to the side of the room by the fire place and sits on the hearth of the fire place. Her ears go out straight - the Yoda position as we call it - and she sulks and freaks out. We have to "kill the monster" when we are finished with it. We wrap…
Today Dudley got his last stitch removed. We're just ending week 2 of rehab and I have to admit we've caved. Weeks 1-3 of rehab were supposed to be only walking on a short leash and crate rest. Yeah, try telling a puppy crate rest. Plus there was some mix up in our instructions. When we brought Dudley home from surgery they encouraged us to walk him. But when we took him back to get his first set of stitches out they assumed Dudley had been on total crate rest. When they instructed us to work… Continue

(four corgi stars of the film and their trainer and owner, Liz.)
Friends and family of nominated film stars are often nervous on the eve of a big cinema awards ceremony. For dog owner Liz Smith, the run-up to the first ever Fido Awards at the London Film Festival on 28 October will be tense indeed.
Smith's five corgis - Anna, Poppy, Megan, Alice and…
Moira absolutely kills me! This one left me dumbfounded.
I was lying on the futon with Tank (the Cardi x) and we were enjoying a quiet afternoon. Not for long. Moira hit the doggie stairs at a dead run. She turned in the air and football tackled poor Tank. She sent him sailing about two doggie-lengths. This meant she was now the owner of the prime spot next to me on the futon!! I have never had a dog do that! Totally cracked me up! I wish I had a video because you'd never believe it… Continue

We have been struggling the past couple of months. On August 29th we brought our 6 month German Shorthair Pointer Jager home for good. Before this she had been at the breeder's being trained to point and hunt. We brought her home for a couple of weekends to get her and Mac used to each other. She is now 50 lbs and our little corgi is only 22. Since Jager is only 8 months old now and Mac is 2 1/2 years she likes to play a bit more than Mac.
These were installed to coincide with the 50th jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. As New Zealand is a member of the Commonwealth, Queen Elizabeth is also the Queen of New Zealand. And, the queen is well known for her corgis. The corgi at the back is sniffing a dropped ice cream.
Karen Basso lives on about a third of an acre in Fresno, Calif. As a Master Gardener, she obviously loves to garden. But she also loves her two dogs.
But can they coexist? Can she have a top-notch yard with a colorful variety of plants and not have to worry about whether her pets will be snacking on it? Or, worse, getting sick from eating the plants?...Details
