What we want in our next dog! Please advise

I cannot help but feel guilty for all of the dogs that do not have homes. We look at and want to adopt everyone. We have a Cardigan Welsh Corgi and a Corgi mix that we love very much. They are our lives and they make getting up in the morning less of a chore (except when it is raining, which it is right now).

Our small issue is we cannot…

Capturing those Precious Moments!

With my first dog I had a baby book for her (don't laugh) because she grew up so fast. I was having a lot of fun and it looked weird but it was a blast. My older sister saw it after and said 1. I should take up scrapbooking and 2. I need to learn to do it correctly.

So Miranda has a baby book and after she was a year old she had a scrap book made of her adventures. Morgan is now at least a year old (being a shelter dog has its draw backs, I have no idea when he was born) and I…

Venting, Venting... MORGAN.... Calming down...

Ok, so last time I typed, Morgan had dined on 3 of my shoes and my cell phone charger. We have since puppy proofed the room more, and crated him more too.

Well I take the dogs to work with me and I was taking a brake and reading my book. Mark comes by and I leave my book on the chair. Only to discover that he is also a book worm. He ate the corner of my FAVORITE book! The World of Pooh, it is a book made in the 1950's and I have read it time and time again. I love this book and I… Continue

Morgan really drives me NUTS sometimes...

Morgan was playing in the yard with his sister Miranda and my other family members dogs. My sister has a black lab and my Dad has a yellow lab. The labs are going nuts for this ball until one of them breaks it open and they move onto the other one. Well Morgan, having discovered a love for my shoes, decides to chew something else. So he eats the inside parts of the ball, the rubber parts. I catch him and take away the ball but the damage is done. He continues to play with the others in between… Continue

Competition UPDATE!

OK, I know I posted this a few days ago, but I thought Miranda lost all of her competitions. Well she actually won. A HUGE trophy. She won "Best Sport". She was very nice to this Beagle who was having trouble in front of the judges. We gave him our cookies and he was extremely motivated after that. She was also so damn cute, so it is awesome. I think it funny, she doesn't always look like a cardi, but she sure acts like one. She is loyal and sweet and an absolute comedian.

"She might… Continue

Morgan won first place in the puppy class!

Update: Miranda won a prize after we left the competition for Best Sportsmanship. She got a big trophy and a certificate. We are so PROUD! I new she was a winner. She might not have the breed standard to a T, but she is all heart. And all corgi owners know that is their biggest attribute!

I have figured out how to post pictures on here. This is Morgan and Miranda after the big competition. Morgan won cutest puppy and walked away with some fabulous prizes. Miranda did not win any… Continue
