Life with Gibson: 12 weeks old

Well it's been confirmed: Gibson is a bit of a tub. We went to the vet last night and when she was examining him, she said, "look at the round little belly, you must have just eaten huh?" Uh oh. No, Gibson hasn't eaten since lunch time (the appointment was at 6). She said he was a little "portly" and I should not increase the amount of food I give him for awhile. I was feeding him 1/4 of a cup three times a day, but then I increased it to 1/3 of a cup three times a day after reading that some… Continue

Life with Gibson: 11 weeks old

My Gibson is 11 weeks today! He's getting so big..I swear he goes in his crate at night and comes out a different puppy :) And he's looking...chunkier? Is this normal for growing puppies? Everyone is commenting on what a chunk he is (maybe because he waddles), but I know I do not overfeed. The area around his neck especially, but I think that might be normal for a corgi? In any case, he's adorable. I'm seriously excited to see how he will look when he's an adult. I know a lot of people want… Continue

So I thought Gibson was an allstar at crate training..but yesterday I started smelling pee when I was sitting on the floor next to his crate, and today it was really bad and he stunk of pee! So I decide to investigate his crate and there it is under his bedding, a nice wet spot...and after pulling out his bedding I notice a huge stain on the bottom of it! Ugh! He does not cry or whine at all when he's in there. It's a very small crate too, I even thought be too small. Why does he think it's ok… Continue

Life with Gibson: 10 weeks old

Well, little Gibson has had quite the week! He's still doing fabulously with the potty training and crate training..and learning a few basic commands (sit, stay, lay down). He can be a little mean at times though, which worries me, even though I know it's just the way he plays. He will herd us and run up and growl at us and bite at our feet..we've tried lots of techniques to get him to stop but nothing has really worked yet. So, today I sent in registration for puppy obedience at our park… Continue

Life with Gibson: 9 weeks old

Gibson is 9 weeks old today and he's been with us for 10 days!

He is still doing really well. He can be a brat, but is a good learner. He already knows sit, come, lay down, and his name (although I think he thinks his name is 'good boy!' too). We're starting to work on leash training, but I think the leash we bought him is too big/heavy. I just can't wait to take him on walks to work off some of his energy and stimulate him with new things. I also tried to put a dog tag on his collar… Continue
