My Question to all pet owners!

Corgi's are amazing dogs!. And yes you need to do your research though every dog has it's own personality plus a lot has to do with training and obedience etc!. In 10 years that I've had Oscar I know all his traits good and bad and you know what I wouldn't trade him for anything!. He is very loyal, obedient, does not suffer fools! just like his old Man!. On the other hand he has his quirks! what dog doesn't but it all comes down to training as the old saying goes you only get back what you…Continue

Here in Australia the RSPCA is trying to stamp out these factories that are pumping out puppies at an alarming rate!. The pet shop chains here in Australia are selling them at an alarming rate!.

Help can someone correct me here I gave Oscar a corn cob when he was a young dog I mentioned this to my vet she read me the riot act!!! It was a NO!! NO!!! I was informed that it could get lodged in the throat and cause other problems if not chewed and digested properly?? I give Oscar raw carrot and apple roughly chopped I was told the carrot was good for their teeth and eyes!.
What are your thoughts on this!.

My partner Paul and I love cruises!. We have to get someone in to dog sit for us while we are away God forbid I would never put my guys in a kennel. I saw the look on the guys faces as we were leaving for the ship I almost didn't go!.
It cant be that hard as you would need a Balcony suite…Continue
It's amazing when I read all the comments people write about our beloved corgi;s the kids as I refer to them as!. It also saddens me when I read about people who harm animals it makes my blood boil!. In Oscar's 10 years I have never raised a hand to him and never would I growl and he knows by the tone of my voice he has done something wrong!.
Look we all make rules no dogs on the furniture! no dogs on the beds!. But how long do those rules last 5 minutes! Yes!. You get that little…Continue

I do know from his Pedigree Papers that on his father's side his Great Great Grandfather was from Queen Elizabeth's Royal Corgi's!. This…Continue
