My puppy was born late Sunday night, and the breeder posted a picture of a sister on facebook. They're so teeny right now at 4 days old, they don't even look like corgis, more like guinea pigs. I don't get to chose which puppy until they are about three weeks old, but I do get the pick of the litter :) SO excited. The name list is getting longer (it's about 20 names long right now, if not more), but I decided I likely won't name him until I meet him. We've stuck with a lot of movie, tv and…Continue
Hi all! Any NorCal Corgis here?

We had quite a scare tonight. Tootsie had a very large and swollen tummy. She drank a lot of water and then urinated a bunch on her walk. Brian thought something was up but he kept trying to put it to the back of his mind and tried to make himself think that he was over reacting. Tootsie came in from her walk and was lying on the floor. Brian rubbed her tummy and heard a sound that was similar to Toots passing gas. He looked down and frantically called for me. Tootsie was bleeding…Continue
Well, a lot has happened since my blog.
Jane was adopted, I had her for a short time, I bawled my eyes out...again lol. This time the rescue had me meet the adopters first and explain everything to them. They seemed like very nice people, and now Jane has a doggy part hound sister, who she got along fantastically with.
It's hard to explain, but it felt right. Watching Jane with them, she seemed to "know" they were her family, she instantly warmed up and it felt natural to see…
Gave the doglet part of a pig ear today. Turned around a little later to see her trying to hide it in the coach cushions. She's not allowed on the couch so I went to move her and she growled wicked at me thinking I was gonna take the pig ear. Uh uhh, thats a big no in this household, little pup. Promptly grabbed her with a good firm no and right in the kennel she went. A little later I let her out and handed the pig ear back. She since then has been trying to give the pig ear back to me,…Continue
a/k/a what happens when a bunch of crazy corgis terrorize the beach. I'm sure everyone's seen these already, but they have to be my absolute favorite corgi-themed Buzzfeeds so far.Continue
I'm sucha weirdo... but I'm super happy that MOMO is finally getting the hang of FETCHING!
He'll run after sticks when i throw them and then come running back with them and either DROP on the ground at my feet or hold onto it until i tell him to leave it/drop it.
Still not a perfect game of FETCH, but for a pup who has not ever played or done fetch, i'm quite happy. I think will keep working with him on FETCH. <3
Soooo proud of my lil man-pup! <3
I noticed Ellie herding for the first time last week. Usually, it’s just me and Ellie alone in my apartment, and she knows better than to try and herd her “alpha” so it’s never been an issue. We stayed with my mom last week, and it’s unbelievable how quickly that herding instinct appeared when there were two people in the house with Ellie.
Every time my mom would move off the couch, Ellie chased after her, lunging and barking and nipping at her heels. My mom said it felt like a lick,…Continue

Oh my gosh, this was SO much fun ^ ^. Napolean met so many new faces that he actually didn't have to look up to meet, haha. We met other mycorgi people there too, our people! Can't wait to go to the next meet in June; I hope there will be even more than this time (there was probably a good 100 corgis this time around)
HERE'S A VIDEO of our experience!: http://youtu.be/7OH2brqLqzo
machete had a very busy, very active day yesterday. so, when his bark box arrived, he was basically passed the eff out and we didn't open it right away because this:
to perk him up, i opened the box and we found all sorts of awesome goodies! once the box was opened, all of a sudden this little corg was very "interested."
first up in this month's box were these…Continue
Corgi meetup in Hungtington Dog beach California April 20, 2013 10AM. Come and join us and meet in person!
On Monday April 15th we said goodbye to Chester. Chester was our lab/dane mix and he was 17 years old. We had adopted him when he was 2 years old from a family who could no longer care for him.
So today was Supposed to be chore day. My doggies had a different idea. Today ended up being "make us more TOYS day!" and so this I did. As a believer in reusing/re-purposing, most of what we use around the house gets used as much as possible. That includes doggie toys. Today I made food toys based on the wonderful model of 'Tug-a-jug'. Being fugal (read…Continue
My tri color corgi puppy's name is Charlie and he is going to be 7 months old here in a week. He is the most stubborn dog in the entire world and I just don't know what to do. When he was really young, about 3 months, we had him sitting when we asked and sometimes laying down. But this was only if he got rewarded with a couple shreds of cheese, he wouldn't do it for anything else. And then he suddenly just stopped listening even when cheese was in front of him. So we sort of dropped sit for…Continue
Breeder has another litter, so we are hoping for a puppy again! This time it is Am Can CH Kingsbury Tail Ridge Road (Jake) x Am Aus CH Cambrian My Way (Casey). So they are out of my all time favorite corgi Harry P's grandson x an aussie import. Just keeping my fingers crossed that one of the boys turns out to be a show prospect for me! This picture shows the two girls on the left and the two boys on the right, just over two weeks old.…Continue
