We're aiming to get a corgi in Spring 2014. We want to take time to plan, get our vacations out of the way, learn, etc. I haven't seen any corgis in the neighborhood actually. Do you hang out by the dog park?
Hi mosesbotbol: Two of my Corgis were used for breeding and showing. The Tri girl "Sally" has a great personality. She plays and is very loving. She likes her toys and is also a good watch dog. The other red Corgi "Chloe" is 7 yrs. old now and is the same as yours. She doesn't know how to play and doesn't know what toys are. She has her spot between our couch and chair and doesn't move from it much. If I didn't walk her, she wouldn't get much exercise at all. That may explain why she weighed 38 lbs. when I got her. I've had her for 1 yr. now and I put her on a diet and walk her 3 times a day. She has lost 3 lbs. since last yr. She is very affectionate though. She sticks to me like glue and won't let me out of her sight. I got my youngest Corgi "Jake" when he was 10 wks. old. What a difference. He loves to play fetch and has a great personality. He does a few tricks too. It makes a difference when you raise them yourself but I'm all for adopting older dogs. Where would they end up and what kind of a life would they have if people didn't adopt them and love them? At least they will have a good life from now on. Your Corgi is very sweet.
Hi mosesbotbol I tried to reply to your note but not working so sending new message. I might have a pup going to boston from this litter so if your friend wants a pup they could share a shipping fee and save $$$ plus pups are happier traveling. I have photos on mycorgi page or if better they can email me direct and I can send photos back email@example.com
I'm so glad you rescued Camber! As a rescuer and a person that has kept a rescue (Wiley) there is nothing as great as seeing them progress and every time I feed Wiley she does this little "prance" like she is so excited to have her "own" food.I believe that Wiley survived on the other dogs leftovers and now she has her own.She couldn't even walk when I got her and my vet also believes she was the most abused out of the 4 I rescued...also on Livvy and the bath...at least she stays in the tub...some of my others think they need to jump out...
What you are looking at in this photo is not a tapestry but a blanket that was created from a photo taken of the dog, Cyclone, several years ago. You can get these "photo blankets" from CVS Pharmacy or Pet Smart. We don't normally have the blanket on the sofa so when we did and found Cyclone in this positon we felt we had to take a pic and share. Thanks for the comment.
Good Morning, Mosesbotbol! I just wanted to pass you a link to a great website that you may not know about:
Type in Corgi in the box for "breed," and you will find listings for puppies as well as older corgis that people are willing to ship. I read your discussion about rescues being a hassle, and, yes, I agree, they really can be. I'm a volunteer rescue transport. I only "rescue" the dogs from "death row" and take them to a rescue place that has room for them, but I know how they operate and I'm sorry you've had such a hard time finding a new furbaby. I hope the link is helpful to you. Let me know if I can help you out further.
I'm not sure if it last all year (i've only had him for a little over a week)
But it doesn't seem to bother him too much or cause him any stress so i'm not worried about getting medicine or anything at this point
Yeah, I agree with what you're saying, but my husband is pretty adamant about it. Besides, I know having a puppy will be a lot harder in the beginning than having an adult dog, but it will be that much more rewarding for us in the long run. I guess it's kind of like wanting to adopt a human baby rather than a teenager. But rescue is an option maybe for a second dog when we have more living space. :)
Yeah, that's an option too. I asked my husband about it and he really would prefer a puppy though. He wants to start with a blank slate so training will be easier and the way we want it to be. I know that older dogs that need homes can also be trained even before you get them, but I don't know. I don't think I'm experienced enough for a rescue yet.
Hi - I got an email saying you'd commented on my photo of Bertie Wooster, but then I accidentally deleted the photo. Yikes! Sorry. Im new to these networks. But I'm slowly getting the hang of things....
Hi he's doing alright for the time being, we have another vet appointment in two weeks to see how the Hill's s/d food is working. I'm really hoping to prevent surgery but if its what he needs he'll get it. Thank you for asking. :) You have a very beautiful corgi. :)
