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

I'm tickled pink to say that Moira has lost more weight. When we got her she was tipping the scales at just under 47 lbs. (How insane is that?) I weighed her at work today and she's at 31 lbs.! That's just amazing! We adopted her on 5/3 and here we are on 10/3 and she's dropped 16 lbs.! Wow!
Dudley is doing GREAT! We made the journey to Columbia, MO today for Dudley's one month post op follow up visit at the MU Vet School. It was a long day. Our appointment was scheduled for 1:30 but they were way behind so we had a long wait for our appointment. Then we waited 2 hours for radiographs. We didn't get out of the clinic until after 5 pm and didn't get home until around 9 pm.
His elbow has aligned very nicely and the bone is healing wonderfully. You can still see the line… Continue

Dudley, our Cardigan Welsh Corgi, had surgery last month on his right front leg for elbow dysplasia. It was quite the experience. Ever since we got him I thought he ran kinda funny but he was a puppy. I just thought "he'll grow out of it" and didn't give it another thought. However as he grew, he started to limp after particularly hard play sessions. I took him to our local vet and she said that first we were going to take the conservative approach. We'd treat him for a sprain but if it… Continue
Tank had a visit yesterday at one of our local assisted living facilities. He's such a ham!!! He performed all his tricks for the few residents who joined us. He was the hit of the party, for sure. All the other dogs sit around and look cute. But Tank has to perform!

Chicken jerky treats may have sickened dozens of dogs, federal health officials warned Wednesday despite failing to find any trace of contamination.
The Food and Drug Administration said it's fielded more than 70 complaints, involving more than 95 dogs, from owners who believe their animals fell sick after eating the products, sold variously as chicken tenders, strips or treats. While most dogs appear to have recovered, an unspecified number died… Continue

When my wife and I got married, we dog sat for a friend of ours, who had a corgi. Having this dog for the weekend changed our lives! As a result we said that at some point in the future we would get a corgi. In 2003 we moved from Maryland to Saint Louis to begin chiropractic school. We found Pet Second Chance via the web and fell in love with this picture of "lady" a corgi who had been left behind by previous owners. We visited, had her over to our house and said, "this is the… Continue
Hi All and welcome to MyCorgi.com! This site is designed by Corgi owners - for Corgi owners :)
My wife Silvia and I have been Corgi owners since 2002. My Corgis are named Mocha & Vienna, as I'm writing this blog, they're currently in their 2nd week of the heat cycle. We're hoping to have our first litter before Christmas.
So why a corgi social networking site? For me, it's a place to show my love for the breed. I am sure our fellow owners have many stories to share,… Continue

I am deeply grieved over the loss of my best friend/teacher Cori Mawashti (lakota for "be good"). After a heroic, 2 year survival with a nasal carcinoma (It should have taken him within 6 months),his body could not fight it any more,even though his spirit was still putting up a battle against the end. Because of this very special boy, I had to learn a new way to train (positive reinforcement) and now teach it to others; how to rehab injured dogs (I now rehab dogs) and work for a holistic Vet,… Continue

It has been a long time since I have had a computer working properly enough to really do much on here except check in and see what everyone is doing. Sorry for those of you I used to chat with more, wasn't trying to be rude but haven't had internet service since this summer so have been either bouncing off other peoples wireless (bad I know) or only been able to use my phone which is very limited on what I can do.
Let's see quick update on everyone......
KC is still Queen of the… Continue
