Snow in Mississippi, AGAIN!!!

I can't believe it! When it snowed the first time, I was happy with the little half inch that we got. This time we got about 6 inches!! It was so great! I haven't seen snow like that since I was little, and even that was only once. Yumi was the first to go out and explore since she had to use the bathroom. She bolted out the door as always only to stop short at the grass, amazed at the winter wonderland spread before her! She looked at me for approval then dashed out into the snow, bouncing… Continue

Month 5 of Corgi goodness!

We got our little Yumi back in August. She was extremely shy and wasn't too sure about us or her new home. Now, 5 months later, you wouldn't know that she was the same dog! Yumi is so bouncy it is unreal, lol. Whether it's time to eat, time to potty, or I just get up to go to the next room she is right there bouncing and spinning and just being a happy pup! She's still a bit shy around people she doesn't know, but a tummy scratch fixes that and she's instantly your best friend. She is a MAJOR… Continue

It's snowing!!!

I live in Jackson, MS and we barely ever get ANY snow and when we do it's just a little bit. But tonight it's snowing wonderfully! We've got an inch or two already out there and it's still early on in the night so I'm hoping we'll get alot more before morning so we can play a lot tomorrow! I went ahead and took my son, Ian, out to play and Yumi tagged along as well. This is Ian's second snow, but I don't think he remembers the first one and this is Yumi's very first snow, so both of them were… Continue

What was that?!?

Yumi follows me EVERYWHERE I go, even if it's just to the next room. She hates being out of my sight and will whimper and whine unless she knows I'm gone in the car. This being said, Yumi followed me to the bathroom this morning. As I'm finishing up my morning business, I happen to glance down at her just as she lets out a tiny little fart! Now, I've never actually HEARD a dog fart before, it's usually an SBD (silent but deadly), lol, so this was already funny enough for me as the fart she let… Continue

So I'm sitting here on my computer playing around on Facebook when Ian starts yelling, "Momma, Momma!" I turn to look at him and ask, "What is it?" He points at a belly up, fast asleep Yumi then says, "Momma, Momma! Yumi broken!!" He then proceeds to pat her belly again (which usually wakes her up and is followed by her pouncing and licking all over him) but she is so comfy I guess that she is completely oblivious to his actions! It was sooooo funny, I wish I could've caught that one on camera… Continue

Just keeps getting better

We've had her almost 2 months now and Yumi still never ceases to make me laugh everyday with something new. She has really come a long way from the shy little pup I brought home! She's still a bit timid around people she doesn't know all that well, but a tummy rub usually brings her right around. ^^ Otherwise she is a complete and total spaz! She's always hopping, bouncing, and spinning around, doing everything she can to keep my attention focused on her and her alone. If I go into another room… Continue

Squeaky Heaven

Yumi is now the proud owner of a squeaky toy shaped like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup pack (got pics up of her with it ^^)! She absolutely ADORES her squeaky and will come running no matter where she is if I pick it up and squeak it. So cute!!! I think I might have to go buy 2 or 3 more like it to keep hidden somewhere just in case something happens to this one, she's become VERY attatched for only having it 2 days. She has to go find it and put it in the bed with her before she goes to sleep!… Continue

Good morning Yumi!

My guess at what Yumi may have been thinking this morning ^^

*Stretches and opens her eyes* Hmm, I wonder what my humans are doing? *Looks around* Ah, I see Dad has gone again this morning, I wonder where he goes everyday? Oh well, I see that my littlest human is still here and sleeping and, oh! Mom's still here! Yay! I wonder when she'll wake up? Maybe if I... *Rolls over onto her tummy (she likes sleeping on her back) and inches forward a bit* Nope, no good, still sleeping. Ugh, I… Continue

2 weeks of cuteness!

We've had our Yumi now for a little over 2 weeks and she is the most awesome little dog ever! She has become COMPLETELY attached to me and follows me everywhere I go. She loves all the rest of her family too, but she's a huge momma's girl! ^^ She stands up on her hind legs sometimes and gives me a "kiss" on my cheek, just one small lick as she reaches my cheek and then drops back down wiggling that nub. It's so adorable, I hope she never grows out of it! And wow, if only every dog was so easily… Continue

My first Corgi!!

We just got our first corgi!!! She's a 4 month old tri-colored Pembroke (I have pics up!) and we love her so much! We've named her Yumi but I want to make her registered name from her parents. I just can't decide on what name though! Her sire is Little Red Speedy and the dam is Lily Red Flo. So I was thinking maybe Little Red Lily? But I would like to include Yumi in her registered name as well, I just can't think of a good combination. Maybe Flo's Little Yumi? Or Little Red Yumi? Lily's Speedy… Continue
