Have you all seen this before? My cousin just sent it to me. It's lovely and suits my little dwarf to a tee!

"Corgi Fantasy"

Would you know where Corgis come from?

How they came to live with mortals?

Hearken to the ancient legend,

Hearken to the story-teller

On the mountains of the Welsh land,

In its green and happy valleys

Lived the peasant folk of old times,

Lived our fathers and grandfathers;

And they toiled and laboured greatly

With their cattle and their ploughing,

That their women might have plenty.

And their children… Continue

I'm debating fixing my corgi mix, because I'm not planning to ever breed her, and its the responsible thing to do, but I'm worried about a few things... one of my biggest worry (don't make fun please!) is that she'll hurt herself more after the surgery because of how short she is! Where she's so short, but likes to sit on the couch, or needs to be lifted up into vehicles and what not, that she'll bump the incision and irritate it or cause more pain than necessary for herself... Thoughts,…

Happy 4th Birthday Steve!

Steve turns 4 tomorrow, November 30.  A very happy birthday to my sweet boy and a big "thank you" for bringing so much happiness to me and everyone you meet!

Part 1 of the celebration was tonight and he got a jacket and lots of toys.  Each toy was wrapped so it was amusing watching him rip into each one.  The surprise and joy on his face when he heard the toys squeak was priceless.…

Old Friends and New Ones

So, about two months ago Percy got really, really sick. After two nights at the vet and a biopsy we discovered it was cancer. He had to be put down. We were devastated. After a month of mourning, the whole family decided that one dog was not enough. Enter Winnie. She is a super cute Pembroke puppy that entered our lives on Thanksgiving of this year. She is already making herself Queen of the house and "terrorizing" poor Arty.

On the smaller side of things

Ace is now coming up fast on his seven-month birthday and weighs "just" 7.5 kg (or 16.5 lb). I am a little concerned as he is from the USA and the AKC standard calls for a minimum weight of 30 lb for males, ideally. I understand that he's far from fully grown and that it could take up to 2 years for him to fill out, but he is noticeably smaller than other male Cardis we saw at his age.


WRT his weight in proportion to his frame, he is at a really great size - pressing slightly…

Why write this?

I have never written a blog before.  But I need to write this in response to a piece I read last night, from a young woman named Rebecca whose Corgi died.


In August of 1994, my husband got me a tri-colored Pembroke for our first anniversary. Her name was Audrey.  She was spunky, funny, smart, and all things Corgi.…

What's Wrong with Waffle?

Back in February, Waffle got sick!  His ultimate diagnosis was bacterial gastroenteritis, IVDD between the L3 and L4 vertebrae, and hip dysplasia (CHD) in his back left leg (the right leg if he were facing you).  Five hundred dollars later, he was better, but I had a sour taste in my mouth about the whole thing.  I called my breeder and told her what they said, and she said we would get him looked at by her vet because she didn't like how they diagnosed CHD from a spinal X-ray. Diagnosing…

CPE agility trial.

I finally got brave enough to enter Murray in his first agility trial.  The main reason I hadn't was that he has a habit of clipping jumps.  We have been working on it, but he seldom has a totally clean run.  I've come to the conclusion that the very thing that he has gotten praised for is the main problem: he watches me very closely.  You wouldn't think that would be a problem, but it takes his attention away from the jump, especially if he gets a little ahead of me.  Very frustrating.  He…

California Cardigan Needs A Home

I've been emailing this woman that needs to re-home her 6 month old cardigan puppy. I'm just not ready for a new pup yet. Is anyone in the Visalia area that might be interested in this darling girl?

color change

Pudge's color is evolving. First it was just his drummies with the tan coming in, then his wings and now I see that he has new eye decals!! His color keeps changing! His drummies are getting darker.

I wonder when we will see his final look!

Happy Birthday, Yewbee

Little Yewbee would have been 10 years old today. It was 9 years ago this week that the Lord brought her to me and 10 years since I've spent Thanksgivings alone.

I sure miss her

Always will

I love you, Yewbee Dew !

That can't possibly have been normal....HELP

Bootsie put his front paws on my lap to be picked up. I grabbed him and went to lift him but did not have a good grip so I let go of him. When I looked down his back right paw had totally bent backward AND he didn't seem bothered. OMG I have been worrying about his back legs/paws/butt. It looked like he was standing on his paw but his paw was bent, like he was double jointed or something. I don't know how to explain it any better.

I think I am getting to attached to my Lando Oliver and Bootsie. We went out to eat our thanksgiving meal and all I could think of was that the corgs wouldn't be getting any turkey day treats like mashed pots or green bean casserole. These pup pups have me wrapped around their little nubs.



Happy Thanksgiving to all those on that have totally abandoned all sence of normality since their Corgs came into their lives......LOL

One year Ago!

Exactly a year ago today (the Wednesday before Thanksgiving) I found out I was getting my first Corgi, Scout!  My friend at work said I could come get her from the neighbor any time.  Well, I decided to wait until after the weekend to get her since I was traveling and didn't want to take her on a long car ride first thing.  Then, I decided to wait until Friday so I would have a weekend to get to know her before I had to work.  So on December 3rd, I drove and picked up my dirty flea-filled…

Losing a Best Friend

Autumn passed away in her sleep yesterday morning. I feel like I've lost a child and a best friend. It's hard to understand why Autumn had to leave so suddenly when she was so young and happy. But given her rough start in life I'm happy that I got to spend as much time with her as I did. I'd say rest in peace... but that wasn't really Autumn's style. Run crazy on the beaches in heaven until we meet again.
