Hi, thanks for the friendly welcome. How nice to meet some wonderful corgi people.
Hanna just had her puppies a week ago today, I had a friend who has been a breeder of Lakeland Terriers for 35 years whelp Hanna for us. I would have been a basket case....Anyways, three healthy boys, then a still born 4 oz. girl, then the largest a 9 oz puppy, stuck, when they were able to get him out he was stillborn. Off to the vets, still one puppy alive, shot of ocytocin, did not help. Ended up losing that puppy and had to to a c section to retrieve it. What a traumatic day, I was so worried for Hanna's health. Then Hanna's milk did not come in so for 3 or 4 days puppies continued to loose weight even after being supplemented. They were too weak and lost the window to dock their tails at the risk of losing them. I was distraught over that, but after being on here and seeing all of the wonderful tailed corgis I am coming to terms with it not being such a big deal. I just had it in my mind......I have never known a corgi with a tail. Anyways, the three boys are gaining weight and thriving, hopefully will get them all home next week. We go and see Hanna every day......
Yes, Sonoma was named after the wine country, which is near to where my brother lives. If I didn't name her Sonoma, I would have named her after my favorite vineyard, V. Sattui. It was a toss-up. I should have gotten two Corgis and I wouldn't have the decision-making stress.
Thank you for the nice words about Bella! She really is a special (if not a little crazy) dog. My husband coaches at a 5A (second highest level in Oregon) high school. The schedule is pretty insane but he loves it almost more than Bella and myself! What level did your husband coach and how many years? Mike's on his ninth year already!
hi and thanks for the welcome. when we first got "Wille" me and my girlfriend could'nt agree for a name. so we choosed the first name we both could agree on, wich happend to be Wille. becides that we call him "Squeaky Mouse" since he talks so much. =)
Thanks, Geri & Sidney. Do you have advice for us on how to stop the nipping? We are trying ignore mild nipping and use a muzzle hold until he calms down. Are there special methods to stop corgis from nipping?
Rosie just has a good shiba friend, but it is amazing how they mirrior and mimmic each other when they are together. We kept finding them within a couple feet of each other, facing the same way and doing the same things! ...not to mention they really resemble each other in looks...same features just different sizes...Both are very cool breeds!!
After much discusison, hair pulling, sleepless nights and just plain wanting both. The Family has come to a dicission... Drum roll please>>>>> We are trying to adopt a Pembroke whose half brtoher will be Bailey from San Fransiso. My Boyfriend fell in love with the pembrokes at a dog show we went to. I figure if he is that excited about a corgi at all is should humor him!
