A few months ago, my hubby and I decided to add to our Corgi family. Hank was born on 12/29/13 in Fredericktown, MO. We were anxious to see how Lola (our six year old female) would react to a new puppy. She's made amazing process over the last 15 months that she's been with us, even to the point of vocalizing a little bit (never thought I would meet a quiet Corgi!).  I can't wait for his ears to come up! Should be any day now!

Hank came home on Saturday (2/22/14) and is just the most precious pup ever. He's still a bit bitey, and compared to Lola he is a definite barker, but we knew what we were getting into :)

They've gotten along from the first moment they met. I really wanted to introduce in a neutral place, and not our backyard if possible, but the breeder recommended to not take Hank too many places until his shots are done. 

Puppy Kindergarten and more rope/chew toys are going to be a must. Lola hasn't been much for toys, but he can't get enough of them. 

Our only problem so far (keep in mind, he is only 8 weeks old... so we're not expecting too much in 2 days time), has been the attempts at potty training. We're crate training at night with wee pads and while we're at work, and going outside a lot during the day when we're off work. I've read if you see them making a mess to try to get him to stop and get him outside and to praise if he goes outside, but he doesn't really make it obvious when he goes (he just kind of pees standing there or while walking, like he doesn't realize he's doing it). Any suggestions from seasoned Corgi puppy veterans? Lola came to us well along the way to potty training and so this is all new territory to us.

He is just so adorable!  I wanna squeeze him!  Lola is so pretty and I bet she's gonna be a great big sisur.

BTW....I also have a quiet corgi.  Katie was a show dog so I'm sure she was trained not to be so barky.  On the other hand, Max makes enough noise for the 2 of them.
