Hi JC. I live in Santa Cruz. It's about a ten minute drive to the Aptos dog park. Large and small seperated areas. There is a great group of small dog owners and well behaved dogs. There are even other corgis if the timing is right. We walk the small dogs off leash around the playing fields. Scottsvalley has one but it is dusty. Carmel Beach (off leash) is a terrific beach for dogs.
the fence is 4 and a half feet tall, this was the first time he climbed it. I think it was because he was so hungry he had to eat something. He was extremely emaciated but the Humane Society here is a farce and rarely takes in anything else but horses.
The beehive puzzle toy has remained remarkably durable! Still no major catastrophic failure through weeks and months of corgi love. Tough turtle lasted all of 20 minutes. ugh. I think it helps that the hive has no eyes and the bees aren't very "animal" like - no need to kill them.
Your Corie is adorable. This website is the best i totally love corgis soooo much. Yes please check out spark and find me on there so we can be friends and motivate each other my name on there is K.leigh.a.may. Thanks for the congrats on the wedding i am super super excited!
There is indeed another meet on the 30th! I won't be there, as I will be driving cross-country, but there are always people there! If you want to join the yahoo group southbaycorgis, that always has people talking about the meetups ... but really, people just tend to show regardless :) Hope to see you there soon though! Your pem is adorable :)
