That's the clip they're going to show!

Eight days after our first trial- meet Corizma Better Together CD!

Be warned: There's A LOT of bragging in this thread!

Eight days ago, we had our VERY FIRST trial in AKC obedience and we got second place.  This weekend, we had two trials to attend and placed second in each one, earning all three legs of our Companion Dog title. Waffle passed his Therapy Dog International test just two days before his first…

New kitty

We recently lost our October to mammary cancer.  She was only 9. :[  We were prepared, though, so we are sad and mourning but it was not surprising or unexpected, which makes it easier to deal with.  We got a new little girl, named Jeannie (pronounced "genie") and she is so good!  She's very confident and outgoing, AND SO ACTIVE, but not destructive.  Very loving.  She and Waffle are going to be great friends, I can tell.  …

I for one welcome my new Corgi overlord

H O L Y C R A P. I am trying to teach Waffle some more tricks. When I was teaching him "Wafflecopter", he would spin once and I would say "do it again", and he would spin again. Now he spins twice! I said "do it again" when I was teaching him something else at school and he spun around and I made the connection that he thought "do it again" = "spin". I've been saying it over and over too trying to teach him to go backwards. Well I said it today…

Pictures and Doodles

Waffle's birthday came and went and I didn't say anything!  He was 3 on June 20th. It's been SO HOT so we've had a pretty lazy summer so far.  My job search continues so I have very little to occupy myself with besides exercising and entertaining my dog.  (And copious amounts of video gaming.)  Anyways, here are some doodles... and then some real pictures.

True story:…

Second Anniversary

I've had Waffle for 2 years today!

What would I do without him?  Oh goodness.  I don't even want to think about how different my life would be.  

He was with me for graduation this past weekend.  Oh, to think of all the milestones he'll be with me for in the future!  

It's a big world, Waffle, buddy.  Let's go…

Do it again!!!

When I was teaching Waffle to Wafflecopter (spin), I wanted him to spin 2 times in a row, not just one.  So, I would tell him to Wafflecopter, and he'd spin once, then I'd say "Do it again!!!" really excitedly while making the hand motion, and he'd do it. Well, with this, he learned pretty quickly to do Wafflecopter with 2 spins instead of one.  

Now I'm trying to teach him to bow.  I can't quite figure out a way to make him bow, so it's a very slow process trying to capture…

Now, the hard part.

It's Sunday.  He looks like he feels 100% better--maybe 90 or 95%.  He wants to do things now and he isn't okay with not doing them. It's so hard to ignore his frequent requests to play and whining to go outside.  But I can't.  I musn't.  He must stay still, at least for today, and then we can do baby things the rest of the week so we are prepared to return to the hiking circuit.  …

That feeling when you're typing...

...and you look at what you typed and it's missing letters everywhere.  

That means it's time to pull all the Corgi hair out from under the keys.


In the meantime, Waffle is recovering well.  I took him on a car ride today.  In hindsight, that was probably an awful idea.

I feel like a crazy person

I'm carrying my 32 pound dog up and down the stairs in broad daylight in front of my whole apartment complex.

He is just sick!  He isn't a princess!  I promise!

Thanks everyone for your well wishes.  He is improving and getting more and more difficult to contain. 

In other news, someone left a tube of cinnamon rolls on the sidewalk and they exploded.  There is icing and dough everywhere and it smells delicious.

I can't wait to get…

Back Injury! Or something. Oh no!

Saturday, I went for a hike with my roommate and Waffle.  The trail was super easy--flat, just long (4.5 miles).  We've done it soooo many times before!  We ended up having to cross a small stream which required Waffle climb a 2.5 ft dirt wall. I think that was our mistake.  He hauled himself up there using his upper body and everything seemed fine until we got home.  He spent the rest of the night in his crate voluntarily.  Sunday, thinking he was just tired, we went to our agility lesson.…

Corizma Better Together, CGC! And pet show stuff

I had not even been trying to get Waffle a CGC because we'd never been in an obedience class and I was adamant that we would fail--and was I wrong or what!  Our CGC performance was FLAWLESS.  The trainer giving our test—who has been training dogs for 20 years and has taught countless CGC classes and given countless CGC tests—said that Waffle was the best dog she has ever tested for the CGC.  Wow!

Anyway, we took the CGC at the Virginia Tech Pre-Vet Club Annual Pet Show.  We entered in…

Graduation Present

I am getting the purple Dyson vac as a graduation present--it's getting delivered to my apartment on March 14.  I have never been so excited about a cleaning product.

We got bit by a pit

There was a VERY dog aggressive pit mix at the park today.  She was off leash and Waffle was off leash and we entered the park at the same time on opposite ends.  The park is actually a soccer field, but it’s used as a dog park when there aren’t any soccer players or kids in it.  Not knowing whether the dog was okay or not, we stuck close to the fence and moved as far away as possible.  The other dog’s owner was just kind of standing in the other gate not making any moves or otherwise…

I made some scarves!

I am selling them, but in order to be eligible to buy one, you must first make a $5 donation to CorgiAid and show proof! 

I know selling stuff is discouraged on this site, but there is a donation aspect as well.  If this is not okay, let me know! I will take it down.  They are handmade with love by a highly opinionated internet hermit.  They are also GUARANTEED to contain real corgi fur!*…
