Last set of puppy shots!!!!! Yes!

Today the veterinarian wasn't our regular one. So the experience kind of sucked. She squirted his corona booster all over the place.. She took forever with doing his rabies vac, so Eddy got all yippy and squirmy and wiggly, and she had to get a helper. Then she lectured me, "Corgis are very protective of their bodies. Be sure to handle him a lot, like, touch his feet, his belly, his hindquarters.. that way he'll be better with the vet or when you'd like to clip his… Continue

Back from vacation

Just got back from Alaska. Eddy's safe and sound, but huuuge! He got a lot of exercise. But I'm pretty sure he received no discipline, at least, he sure is acting like it.
3rd shots are due this week.
My sister said she thinks he has a flea infestation... but her dogs are on Frontline Plus, and Eddy is on Sentinel... sooo, unlikely, right? I'll have to flea-comb him before bed.
Ahhh, it's good to be home! I Heart Portland.

Today I leave Eddy.

In a few hours, I'll drop Eddy off with my sister while my boyfriend and I visit Alaska for a week. Yay, vacation and family. Sob, separation and corgi.

Woodcutter ant

Today as I was getting ready, I heard Eddy freaking out in the other room. He had tried to eat a huge black woodcutter ant, and it had attached itself to his lip, and seemed to be nipping him over and over!!! Eddy was like, "YIP! YIP! YIP! YIP! YIP!" He was sneezing, shaking his head, rolling all over the place, etc. I yanked it off, and it made a nasty *crick* sound (?). GROSS. I hope he learned a lesson about not munching on whatever he finds laying around.

There aren't any issues… Continue

What do people say about your corgi?

Of course our corgis get sooo much attention. But some of it is unwanted. 2 women were at PetSmart together, one of them said, not surprisingly, "OOOhh soooo cuuutteee those ears awww!"

And her friend asks, "Is that a corgi?"

"Yep!" I replied proudly, as Eddy is showcasing his ears and wiggling his butt and being cute.

And she shot back, "Huh. Never seen one as a puppy. It's cute now but I think they're fugly when they're older." GASP.

Has anyone said… Continue

Teething begins

Eddy's been doing a lot of whining while chewing lately... yay, teething. Also, for the past 2 weeks, he's been really good about not chewing on non-chew toys. Then, suddenly, 2 days ago, he started going crazy and chewing everrryythinngg. So we're going to start experimenting with some new chewies, freezing some kongs and nylabones and carrots for him, etc etc.

We have to leave him while we go on vacation!! I'm having separation anxiety. A whole week without little Eddybones to… Continue

Playmate bloodied Eddy!

Yesterday's play-date went great for the first half... I went out to Portland to see my best friend and her new beagle-lab-aussie shepherd pup. They're the same size, and immediately began wrestling and tumbling. Then she bit a gash under Eddy's eyeball! It bled into his eye, and he was squinting and wincing. We cleaned him up, but then they just kept wanting to go at each other's throats and soft spots!!! They were definately tense and resentful after the injury, and couldn't play nice any… Continue

First Vet Appointment

Nothing was wrong with Eddy! The doctor was really sweet -though the front desk ladies seemed to think he was pompous- and he gave us a free trial of Sentinel, informing us that he was just at a flea conference and that fleas around this area are developing a tolerance to Advantix. He said Eddy's red-rimmed eyes are probably caused by allergy season here in Portland, and the fact that he's always dragging his stubby corgi body through tall grass. Eddy still had some scabs leftover from his… Continue
