So, after a few bouts of bloody poop and vomiting and blood and fecal tests our vet has returned a presumed diagnosis of low grade, recurrent pancreatitis. I say presumed as the blood test and the symptoms point towards this being the problem, however the fecal tests, which were taken when Potus was feeling okay as his bouts have not been frequent enough, thankfully, for us to have gotten a sample of his bloody poo, could not 100% confirm the diagnosis.
Nonetheless we are going… Continue

I finally received pictures from the breeder of the puppies! I have had my email up constantly on my computers for the past week waiting for this. I was surprised that all the puppies appear to be black-headed tris. There are two in particular that caught my interest and they are both males! I'm just waiting for Joe to get home from work to get his opinion :) Obviously the final decision won't be made until I meet the little buggers in person and get a feel for their personality. Five… Continue

After seeing all of the past and recent dog food recalls I am considering making homemade food for Chase. I have been feeding Chase Blue Buffalo Freedom, which has not been recalled recently. However, I don't think I could feed Chase kibble with confidence anymore. I have not seen where and how this food is made and I honestly believe that no one cares about Chase's health more than I do, so why shouldn't I be directly responsible for feeding him CLEAN, HEALTHY food?

We adopted a rescue several months back. Things have been going really well. The only issued we have now, is Bud eating too fast.
He scarfs his food so quickly that he regularly begins to choke. He often won’t wait to stop chocking before he resume eating. ARG!
I began researching slow down bowls. Most of the reviews said that they worked great until the dog figured out how to tip the bowl and dump out the food.
I began to think of alternatives. At first I… Continue

I have to share this product with you guys! I believe it was a huge factor to my girl's quick recovery from an dog attack that landed her in ICU for 2 days and in a cone and rest for 3 weeks. The images of the injury are pretty graphic so here's the link https://picasaweb.google.com/114496480725773812681/November12011?authuser=0&feat=directlink 2 vets told us she would need… Continue

So I got in the mail this weekend my quarterly "Chuck and Don's Bark n Mews" from the Chuck and Don's Pet Food Outlet store (love this place).
I went through the ads and pulled a few of them I thought would work nicely. I ended up pulling up a "2 Free 13.2oz Lotus Canned Dog Food" coupon and grabbed up the "Chicken and Asparagus Stew" since I figured it would be easier on my dog's digestion.
Here is the run down on the ingredients:
First 5: Chicken, Chicken… Continue

Bartleby is getting bigger and longer, but sometimes I worry he is too "skinny". When he stretches out, I can see his ribs, and I'm worried that what I'm feeding him isn't adequate. I've been really focused on keeping him not obese and worried its a little too much in the other direction. I think he's going to probably be a pretty big corgi when full grown, based off his size now compared to adults I've seen and how big his dad was. How much did you feed or should you feed your corgi at 6… Continue

Bento has been with us for 1 week, and he's without a doubt, an awesome corgi.
So far, he loves peanut butter. Nothing gets his furry butt wagging more than a puppy kong with peanut butter.
He's also very fond of Bil-Jac and Train Me treats. We cut them in half and use them as rewards for his training. Unfortunately, too many of these treats make his poop gooey. Must be the higher fat content. Which is why we switched over to Natural Balance Duck and… Continue

Hi. My 2 year old Corgi, LaVerne got injured and she had to have surgery on her shoulder. She wasnt svelte before the injury but now she has been on restricted activity,( only leash walked outside to go to the bathroom,) and she has gotten quite chunky. She is a little over 33 lbs! The Vet put her on Hills Prescription diet rd, but she had been throwing up and I suspect the food isnt agreeing with her. Does anyone have suggestions for a healthy diet dry kibble diet for her to go on? I know her… Continue

Vets say natural dogs foods are not always healthy dog foods.
I thought this article was interesting because it highlights that it's important to get past the buzzwords in dog foods like "Natural" and "Holistic" and really get into the nitty gritty of what… Continue

This Corgi dances before his breakfast. Apparently he is really into his, so much so, that he has an elaborate dance routine. Yoda sort does the same thing with his treats, but nothing like him. He must be the only Corgi in the house, so he does not worry about another Corgi steal his food. So, does your Corgi dance to celebrate… Continue

Hmmmm… how do I start this. I guess with a short story about a comment that was made to us when we were at the beach with Soffie and Griffyn last week. A man on the beach with his dog inquired to us as to what breed of dogs we had. When we told him Pembroke Welsh Corgis he replied… Really?? Aren’t they usually FAT?!!!
Sad but true I’m afraid…. So I am going to post a… Continue

Tuesday night we had our 1st class. Chloe seemed to pick it right up, me I need to practice.
The instructor has us reward with food. She recommends hot dogs.
Chloe is not food agressive with us, but with other dogs around she can be quite competive and not nice to her classmates.
How do you get the dog to not be food agressive to other dogs??

We ran out of Origen puppy formula and it was time to switch to adult food anyways. I know everyone says that the switch should be gradual, but Shiro eats a large variety of meats along with his kibble (not at the same time) so I felt it wuold be OK to start a new food right away.
He usually gets cooked chiken, ground beef or turkey, sometimes pork every other day, and when I switched from Innova to Origen he didn't have any problems at all.
Anyways, the store near us doesn't have… Continue

I am getting my first corgi on the 31st and I am still getting things ready for him. The hardest thing I am having to make is what size crate and what type of food.
Since we are in economic times I am hoping to buy one crate and use spacers till he grows. But what size and dimesions (specifics if possible) of crate (Airport/Plastic type) do you have for your corgi as an adult?
Also, the nearest stores I have to me is Wal-mart and Petsmart. Which dry food (brand) should I… Continue

So years ago when I got my first cat my vet recommended Nutro cat food. She told me it was high quality and cheaper than other foods like science diet and such. Seeing as this is what my kitten had been eating already and I liked the sound of a high quality food (I buy only Oxbow products for my bunny because of quality), i thought it was a great investment into my kittens future.
Fast forward a few year
I finally got the dog I had been dreaming of since i graduated from… Continue

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
Today was the opening of the Pongo Fund Pet Food Bank in Portland, OR. I was honored to volunteer and be a part of this brilliant charity. Larry started out delivering food to pets of the homeless and transient people in the area and has now opened this food bank which will help to keep families (including the furry members) together.
