Shannon, wow I haven't logged on in forever to update my page I've just been checking in from my blackberry. I saw the new puppies sooo cute. Wanted to tell you that I posted new pictures of Einstein, he certainly does look like his parents :) Thought you might want to take a peek just to see how well he's doing out here in Southern California. He really is the sweetest little guy and quite the Momma's boy, his personality certainly takes after his Dad Ted E. too!
Hi and thanks for your reply Shannon - I go in spurts on here too. Fortunately, Leo has taken a turn for the better and right now our trip is on hold. Can't explain it, but I'm just thankful he doesn't seem to be having the back leg/rear end pain issues right now. If they could only talk! Or maybe not, I've got one sassy mouth little lady whom I might not want to hear what she has to say. Shelby
Hi - not sure if you'll remember me but I work with Dr. Jack Anderson, Renee's husband, they got "gris" from you. I am looking into the possibly bringing my corgi, Leo, down to Ames to the vet hospital for a diagnosis on his rear leg/hind end lameness that's been going on quite awhile now. I was wondering if you have had any experience with the small animal hospital there. I'm only 45 minutes from the Univ. of MN Vet school but I've heard that Ames is much better/nicer than the U of M and also less expensive which would help to offset gas/hotel expenses. I'm just trying to reach out to a few people on MyCorgi that might be able to offer some opinions/insight. Thanks for anything you might be able to tell me. Shelby
Shannon, it has been a while. I wanted to let you know that we are hosting a Corgi meet-up at our Farm next Sunday (November 15). I would love to have you and your family join us. Fergie's puppies will be two weeks old. Needless to say they will remain in the house, but the rest of the pack will be outside playing! There is more informaion in the events page on MyCorgi. Let me know if you think you might come. Hope all is well with you and your family.
I will keep my fingers crossed that the tie worked. Kola just went through her heet cycle but we never saw her or Teddy tie. I guess we will see in a few weeks if things worked out or not. I am sorry to hear about Buttercup maybe next time.
Teddy is full of energy! He loves to boss Kola around. Kola now she loves to walk and run. She would do great in agility classes, if we had them here. I wish we did for her sake. She listens well whereas Teddy is still working on the word come. I think I will celebrate when he finally get that command!
thanks! He is a happy guy. But we found out "the hard way" he likes to attack the carpet sweaper, lawnmower & motorcycles!! He is very afraid of thunderstorms & firecrackers. Both happened the 2nd weekend @ his new home.
Hi Shannon and Deb,
I did make it to the show on Sunday but was too late to see the Corgi's, How did Snowy do, I was really hoping to see him.
Jack is doing really great, he has quite the little personality now, I will have to update the corgi site with new pictures so you can see how he has grown. I always get such great compliments about him when he is out and about and he has started a puppy agility class to see how he likes it, he is really fast, last week he just kept running as he got towards the end of the course, ha. I will upload some new photos and hopefully catch Snowy in the ring next time!
Meet Casey! We did not like his name so on the 5 hour ride home from Kansas City we chose a new name. Casey = from KC, MO. Casey is a Gaelic name that means alert & watchful. He is both! He is a good dog. He gets wild over loud & noisy things=lawnmower, sweeper, motorcycle & is very afraid of thunderstorms. We are learning about him & he is learning about us, his new home &neighborhood.
Shannon we have found a new Corgi to adopt. He is @ a shelter in Kansas City. We plan to go there this weekend to bring the young guy home. He is about 3 years old. There will be new changes for us & this dog, but that is the "joys" of owning a dog.
I though maybe it was a little to soon after loosing Rascal to get another dog already but hubby says we need another dog in our house to keep us busy & entertained.
Hope to have pictures & introduce the new dog (still dont agree on the name!) soon.
Thank you for your kind words of comfort @ our loss. Also thanks for keeping a look out for another Corgi in search of a new home.
We had a nice time @ the Ft. Dodge dog show. We watched the obedience show, but wished we knew more about the judging.
Of course, we saw Corgi dogs. There was only 1 Pembroke in the show! Others had registered but did not attend. Visited with his owner who also owns & shows Cardigans. 1 of the owner's Cardigan won breed over 7 others.
Good luck & hope all goes well for Snowy in the Omaha show. Unfortunately we will not be able to come down that weekend. A cousin of hubby's will be @ Schaller that weekend for a class reunion so we hope to visit with him since he lives in CA & have not seen him in over 10 years. Thanks again for your caring thoughts.
With a sad heart I must report our Corgi Rascal passed to the Rainbow Bridge on Monday, June 8. The vet tested to find he was dying of stomach cancer & the tumor had burst.
Rascal will be missed. But he is no longer in any pain. We will always have our memories & our pictures.
For now we are taking 1 day @ a time, but someday you may see we have a new Corgi to share our home & lives.
Shannon we are planning to go to a dog show this Sunday @ Ft. Dodge. In the past we have wanted to attend but have missed the event. It will be nice to see other dogs perform.
Maybe someday we will contact you to see about a new Corgi? But we feel we do not want to get a puppy. If you know of anyone wanting to find a home for a Corgi around 1 year old please let me know. Good luck with your Snowy showings.
