For those of you who aren't on Facebook I thought I should update you...in the last 2 moths I have lost 2 Corgis. Teddy was diagnosed with large tumor and spent his last few weeks with us before he was too sick and we had him put to sleep.
Wynn was diagnosed with bladder cancer last fall and started failing fast a few weeks ago so I also had to say good-bye to him.
Poor Sage is wondering where they are and very lonesome as she has never been an only dog! Hopefully she will have…Continue
I was recently contacted from a person who sadly needs to find a new home for her spayed female Corgi. She does not get along well with children or other animals. She sounds like a wonderful companion dog for a older couple who has experience with Corgis and can provide a good home. Please message me and I can give you more info or pass on the contact info to you. The person loves this dog and wants her to have a good life.
Wynn, Sage and Teddy(my rescue) will be moving to a town of about 26,000 people. They have lived all their lives in the country with wide open spaces to run. Wynn and Sage have experience with city living and Teddy does not. If we don't have a fenced in yard it will be too late to put one up as the ground will be frozen by then. We do have a large outside chain link dog kennel that we can temporarily use also. Many of the houses we are looking at do not have sidewalks...any helpful info or…Continue
Another happy ending for a Humane Society Corgi.There is a long story as to how Cody ended up there BUT he is now home with his new brother Parker and the neighbor dog Captain. Within 15 minutes of texting former Corgi people who got pups from me...Cody had a home! He had a long distance to travel with me and then…Continue
I just got an email from our local humane society president that they have a 3-4 year old male Corgi. I have no more info today but will find out more tomorrow and that the Corgi seems to be very nice. Anyone who knows of someone who might be interested please message me and I will be meeting him on Sunday to know more. The woman knows I found the last one they had a great home and so she would like me to find this one a great home also. No pictures yet but I'll get some on Sunday:)
We lost a member of our Corgi nation last week. Her husband called me to inform me yesterday .Several years ago I was lucky enough to meet with Joanna twice when she drove from NY to MN to get a rehomed dog(Rainy) of mine and a rescue(Calvin) a month later. The minute I met her I knew she was a special woman and we always kept in contact. I know she is playing with all of our 4 legged ones over Rainbow Ridge...Just wanted to let you know.
Well Teddy(my 11 year old rescue) and Tank at some point decided to leave the area. Teddy does not do this and being almost completely deaf I panicked. Took Wynn with me and started walking the fields near our place. Partway through I thought about calling the people who live at our other place and the lady said "so…Continue
A couple months ago I noticed that Teddy had some teeth that weren't good. Six I thought...so after the worst winter in 35 years here I made an appt. for his dental work. WELL...after examining his teeth the vet removed 16 teeth. Many of them due to the roots being exposed.
Last night I…Continue
First of all my dogs are crated when they travel with me 99.9% of the time. Well, today I took Sage along because she was sitting at the door waiting to go to work with me...poor decision as I have 2 kennels borrowed out and a 3rd stored in my garage that wasn't ready to go...yes I still took Sage and I had…Continue
Tank my Corgi mix decided to chase jack rabbits after I left him out today:( He usually stays in the yard but hasn't been out in a week due to below zero temps. He decides to run to the grove across the road and get lost(?) for over 8 hours. I went out hourly and he didn't come. Finally right before dark he…Continue
Yesterday AM I let some of my dogs out into their big fence as usual. Immediately I heard several Coyotes yipping. I also had one of my cats run out and through the fence. What seemed like only seconds I heard a Coyote kill a cat near what sounded like at the edge of my grove and my 1st thought was "oh,no...the coyote got Smidge" my heart just sank! Dogs were going crazy and I quickly got them back in the house but had to leave for work. Luckily(not for the cat) it must have been a stray…Continue
update 9/28 : Wynn's sutures are open...waiting for the vet to get back and then we are going in...NOT an emergency but can't wait till the AM:(
Vet visit: Super sedated for the next 4-5 days...huge cone head too:( After he tore out several of the staples right after the vet had put them in the vet decided that to put him on a major med and more pain pills as he had just finished his last one…Continue
Hope this doesn't continue...lost 2 cats due to rat poison which we NEVER use and the closest neighbor is about 3 miles away. This included my baby cat KK that found us...this also happened about 20 miles from here and we think someone is trying to poison coyotes and maybe something ate it and wandered onto the property and died. The one was an outside shed cat and until KK got sick and we took him to the vet we had NO idea.
Cougar sighting are rare around here BUT 2…Continue
