The Ein and Phoenix have been through some pretty intense remediation in obedience training and it seems that they've gotten over the very nasty phase of fighting. They still get into little tiffs every now and then but they seem to be working it out like normal dogs. Over Thanksgiving they had a lot of exercise at my parents farm and bonding time for them to work as a team. Mostly to try and chase cows and kitties. It's their job; grandma can't really get mad.
Ben is 11weeks old now. Turns out he is a male but has hypospadias ( his urethra comes out below his anus). When he is 6 months old they will be more concerned about his undescended testicles and may need surgery for that only. Ben is a real charmer. He loves to play to the dismay of Toby and Lola who spend most of their time trying to get away from him. He is working on his potty training. He loves to CHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!! No matter how many toys, he… Continue
We had a big Thanksgiving weekend! We attend a 3 day agility trial in St. Louis every year and this if the first year Dudley has been with us so he got to go and watch Taffy run. Taffy had a pretty good weekend. This was our first time competing in Open plus she hadn't trained much so it was just a "fun run" weekend. We got to see our friends, have some good food and good times. I'll be posting a video that will probably be one of the funnier agility videos. I'm labeling it "Taffy the Ham".… Continue
When I was a little puppy I had big "bodyguard". He was a German Shepherd called Maxen. Sadly enough he became very ill and passed away a year and a half ago. Then he was nine years old.
He was rescued by Petra from a bad family when he was three years old, and he was very grateful for it. And as long as he lived he watched over his Cardigan family - first Frodo and then Saga and me as well. He loved my daddy Frodo as though he was his son.

I am in St. Louis and do Corgi Rescue. See the PSC group. I work with the Lake Shore Corgi Rescue Group. We have unfortunatley lost out transport person in the Northern Chicago area. If you or anyone that you know with some dog knowledge would be interested in helping us with transport, please email me or post and I will email you. We usually move dogs from the Northern Chicago area to Wisconsin. We call these "legs" and they are usually about two hours. We cannot pay for gasoline, but the…
Ein and Phoenix have still been fighting like crazy.
Two weeks ago we had dog behavior people come out to the house and evaluate our situation. Then last week we went to their facility where they stayed while I went to work. They were confused because of several reasons:
1. Ein is a boy and Phoenix is a girl. 2. They are both fixed. 3. They get along in the yard and in the car. 4. They get along on walks as long as they never face each other. 5. They get along… Continue
Hey guys! Here's the 6 min video of our Corgi Picnic in Melbourne, Florida. The party was hosted by our member Betty Bost, it was a success and we raised over $1K for CorgiAid. I was able to meet the maker of the "corgi bed", he custom make them with color, size...etc. You'll see a few seconds of the bed in the video. I was also able to meet Bill and his 3 fluffies! All 3 of them have different type of hair and they're just adorable… Continue
What a busy day today! I got up at what we affectionately call "oh-dark-thirty" and went for my regularly scheduled Saturday morning long run (14 miles this week). I had to run at a fairly good pace because Dudley had his first post surgery herding lesson scheduled at 11:30 am. My run started at 6 and I live almost an hour away from where we were meeting to run so I needed to finish my mileage in under 3 hours. For you runners out there I know that's a pretty slow pace, but I'm normally a 10… Continue
I meant to enter this several days ago, but my busy boy has kept me hopping the last few days. Dudley has been given the A-OK from the vet. I took Dudley to the vets office on Monday to have him checked out. Dudley was so much better than I wanted to have him checked out to see if he could resume "normal" activities. Our vet says that Dudley has good muscle mass and his legs are symetrical in mass. She gave him a thorough examination and watched him walk and run. She said that if she didn't… Continue
