Normal Growth Rate For Corgis

I am looking at our little pup, Hazel. He is 4.5 months going on 5 months next week and weights about 20lbs. I do not have the measurements for his mom and dad but mom is definitely a bigger corgi and dad is medium sized. I've included some photos below for reference. The reason for my post is I am concerned with his growth rate. Is he growing too quickly for the breed? If he is, what stress is being put on his little joints that could lead to spine and joint problems including hip dysplasia…

The Dog That Peed Lake Michigan on the Kitchen Floor!

LOL! Okay, this is all my fault. And it's not funny, but what the heck...it struck me as hilarious.

We're in the office watching reruns of Desperate Housewives on the giant iMac and cackling away at a particularly funny episode. Time to knock it off, though, and go to bed, so it's "Back to Browse" for Netflix and "Sleep" for the computer and soon, I imagine, "sleep" for the human and the dawgs. We trot out to the kitchen to let the pooches out for a final policing of…

Puppy Food Antics and Discoveries

So...after a commenter here at MyCorgi.com suggested conferring with a "holistic" vet, I googled "<same>" and discovered one such person at the mega-commercial-vet that is the legacy of my old friend, now retired, and all-around great vet and redneck good-ole-boy, Jerry Jenkins. Who'd've thunk it? Jerry's veterinary empire is right down the road, as opposed to halfway across the city where I've been schlepping Cassie and now, New Pup.

Well. It was off to…

Puppy Pix Are Up!

M'jihito drove me out to Wittman yesterday for Puppy-Picking Day, his car being younger and more reliable than mine. We have a pup, a  little girl. A slew of Phone Photos are here:

Wittman is an hour's drive from central Phoenix. This factoid made for an…

Cats and puppies

If any of you had a cat before getting a corg pup, what was the method that you used to introduce the new puppy to the cat and what was the outcome like?
Our kitty Sushi is 12yo and has been around dogs before but it's been a couple of years since the last dog so we are very curious to see how she will react.

She has a vet appt set for one week before the dog arrives to make sure she's in perfect health as well as to file her nails.

Chosing airlines

From your experiences, what is/are the best airline to ship your puppy?  I know the options are very limited as far as who accepts pets as cargo, but out of the few that do, I'd like to know who's the safest.  Also, if it's a connected flight, is there anything to worry about?  I would choose a direct flight, but the airport that my breeder lived near doesn't have ANY non-stop flights to NY!

Possible Resource Guarding Issues

Hello everyone! Bandit is doing fantastic (can't believe she is already 13 weeks old!), but I have had some issues the past few days with her while we have her outside to go potty. 



The area outside my apartment where I take her to do her business has some mulch around the bushes, which was fine, but when the landscaping people came this past week they somehow managed to get little bits of mulch all over Bandit's usual potty area. The problem stems from this. She…

DREAMS COME TRUE

IT HAPPENED!!! 

I was just confirmed to pick up my dream dog just after Christmas. A week ago I found these puppies from this https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/dbOJb fundraiser for Willa, a corgi rescue who was pregnant. THEIR TAILS WEREN'T DOCKED. They were in California. It was too good to be true.  I found them hours before the application deadline for a puppy closed and fought the good fight to get one. I was just confirmed and my…

Floor in Puppy Playpen

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…

Too good to be true?

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…

First Blog Post: Introduction...

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.…

Gotcha Day is just a week away!

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.

  • crate in living room (with divider)
  • crate in bedroom (with divider, just for sleeping)
  • travel crate for car
  • collars (flat collar for ID,…

Ordered a Buckle Martingale Collar

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…

Food suggestions for PWC pup? Puppy vs Adult formula?

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…

The Wait Begins

We finally got confirmation on the breeding schedule for the litter our puppy will be from. It's looking like puppies will be expected by the end of September/early October, which means puppies will go to their new homes (our home!) around the end of the year/early 2014.



That is a long time to have the "I WANT A DOG" pangs, but the wait will be worth it.



I'm continuing to read everything I can about the breed and refreshing myself on puppy rearing basics. It's been many… Continue

Peaches is growing so fast!

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! …

It'll happen

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…

A mad, crazy, wonderful world

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.…
