I am getting myself ready before I get a puppy, I'm on a list for a breeder. I have slowly gathered everything I think I'll need, minus food, collar, leash (I want to wait to make sure I get something that fits).
I have seen a lot of people use xpens/playpens for pups when they are younger, for when they can't watch them or if they have to get up and do something, etc. I got a 30" high one to use at home, but my house is pretty much completely carpet! Not good for puppy…Continue
So, my little miss Bandit has been home for two days now. When is the other shoe going to drop? When is she going to become a troublesome puppy? I honestly just can't get over how perfect of a puppy she is!
She has been completely accident free.
She doesn't really bark in the house (unless she sees the cat running away from her).
She only whines for a few minutes before settling down in her crate during the day.
At night, she falls asleep within minutes of…Continue
So, really quick...this is my first dog since I was a teenager. His name is Shankly and he is 6 weeks old this week. He is a Pembroke Corgi and I have to say, my wife and I are so in love with this little guy.
We created an Instagram for him, for me to get used to Corgi owners, and the Corgi's themselves. They say "a picture speaks a thousand words" and they do, and the videos on there as well.
We get to bring the little boy home on Nov. 25th. I am so excited.…Continue
Hello fellow corgi lovers!
It is just 7 days until I bring my little miss Bandit home. She will be almost 9 weeks old. I feel like I am prepared, but I figured I would give a run down of what I have and see what other advice I could get. I want to be as prepared as possible for my little baby.
I just ordered a buckle martingale collar for my puppy that is coming home next week. I already have a regular martingale that I was going to use for her, even though I don't like that I would have to slip it over her head and adjust it every time I am going to have to take her outside. From my understanding, the buckle martingales work just the same as the regular, but just have the added convenience of buckling on like a normal collar.
I know a lot of people here swear by…Continue
Knowing that I will be bringing home my first PWC pup in about two months, I am
starting to test the waters to figure out what kind of food to feed. I am a big
fan of Blue Buffalo. My cat has been on it for years and all of my coworkers
feed Blue with great success.
I was looking at either the Freedom or
Basics "lines" that Blue has to offer. Freedom is grain free and Basics is a
limited ingredient food.
Also, I know there are varying opinions on…
Peaches is now 19 weeks and she's growing sooo fast! I was just going through some pictures of the first week that I got her and she was sooo tiny and so fluffy. I kind of miss her being small, but I also can't wait until she is fully grown. I thought I'd share the cute pictures that I was talking about! …Continue
So it's official! I just found out exactly who my baby is.
On May 25th or 26th I will be bringing home this little lady.…Continue
I was feeling discouraged. Hunting for the healthy Pembroke puppy with a tail is a tiring task. I was talking to my sister about just rescuing, I already have guilt for going with a breeder. Maybe my first dog is not supposed to be the dream dog. Maybe I am supposed to adopt some LA puppy. And maybe I am.
But then I ran into a corgi.
It's name was bubbles. Bubbles balanced treats on his head, he high fived with both stubs, he put his head in my lap when I petted…Continue
Ok you guys, it has been a CRAZY few days. A video I posted of Fiona on YouTube went viral, and it has been a total roller coaster ride since then. You can see the YouTube video here. And below is a photo of her smiling about all the nice people saying warm and fuzzy things about her.…Continue
After all of the months of research and waiting and planning and preparation...Fiona finally came home on February 1st. And oh, what a month it's been!…Continue
So last night at about 1am my husband and I took our rabbit, Gregory to the animal hospital because we were worried about him given that he hadn't eaten any of his hay or veggies. We even gave him a strawberry (his favorite) and he refused it. He had been this way for several hours and his temperature was off as well. Having lost our other Corgi last December we are still a bit gun shy when it comes to our pets health. So, if for no other reason than to calm our nerves we went to the…Continue
My puppy Charlie is 4 months old. We are dog sitting for a female boston terrier that is staying at our house. They get along great! Just one thing I noticed is the exsessive chewing and bitting he does on her. She doesn't seem to be hurt by it at all, but I am still concerned and don't know what to think of it.
Machete is totally dubious of Mondays. We had an issue at home with the bathroom renovations and the WORST CREW EVER and it's made the house a disaster and is slowly traumatizing the pets. The cats are dealing with the worst of it, right now, poor lil' guys.
Machete is not a fan of the car at the…Continue
and then, and then, after FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER OF WAITING, we finally picked up machete! and he was perfect and snuggly and adorable and awesome. we spent some time with anne learning about his feeding habits, his…Continue

the bark box was awesome. it had this really amazing little toy octopus that i…Continue
For my first post on this site, I just want to give a hearty Thank You! to everyone who has posted before me.
Growing up, I had two dogs. My family has a long tradition of outside dogs (which I never liked, but I was the kid). Nothing is difficult about having an outside dog in the country. They run, play, bark, potty, chew whatever and wherever they want on the acres of land they have free range to explore. You play with and walk them when you feel like it and ignore them when you…Continue
