We are 5 days in to Corgi ownership, and I must say, we are HOOKED!! I want at least 10 more (LOL)!! Josie has been so much fun!! She goes 4 hours at night before whining (needing to go for a potty break), and with highs in the teens and inches and inches of snow, this has meant for some cold, sleepless nights! She "snow plows" in the snow - you would think that a low body would not fare well in the deep snow, but NO!! She is ALL about going into the deepest drifts to search out potential scents and goodies! She was initially a bit shy, but that passed quickly, and now she is the boss of Maci (boxer puppy) and all household cats. So here's a question for all you Corgi lovers. We work, so of course she is in an indoor kennel all day, b/c I am gone 8 1/2 hours for work, and she cannot stay in a crate for that long as a puppy. She tends to make a big (and I mean BIG) mess while I am gone. I use an enzyme cleaner and after cleaning there is no odor, but it is taking 45 minutes to just clean the kennel after a day of her pooing and smooshing the poo on her floor (concrete floor, thank goodness). Any suggestions or will it just be a matter of time before she will soil her area less???
