Hi Lori, Hunter is actually the dog on the left. I got him from a man in Oceanside, CA. However, he said he got him from a kennel on the east coast. He said maybe Kentucky but he couldn't remember. Maddi I adopted from the pound. Where she is from is anyone's guess. I love her just the same though. :)
Thank you so much for your caring. I hope that you are both well now. Barney's world is upside down right now. He looks for his daddy when I come home. I feel bad leaving him in the morning when I have to go to work. He is getting used to it now I think. Thank goodness he isn't a naughty dog. Leaving him alone would be even harder. I was worried the first few days, because he would not eat or drink while I was gone. He is learning to eat now. I miss him so much right now! Just talking about him and seeing your pictures are tugging at my heart strings. Be safe and be well!
My husband has been in the hospital for 10 days now. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have Barney to keep me company at night. He is getting used to being alone during the day. Russ is usually home with him since he is disabled. I'm proud of Barney for adjusting so well. My mom lets him out in the afternoon for me. Your pictures are great! Almost looks like Barney, but he has the saddle.
Corgi Butts Drive Me Nuts! Have you ever heard "If it's not a Corgi, it's just a dog"? I shouldn't say that, because I love all dogs. Big ones, little ones, it doesn't matter. My only regret about getting Barney later in his life is that we didn't get to see him grow up. I bet he was so cute as a puppy.
Cooper sounds like a clip, and a lot like Eliza! I used sour apple spray by the gallon (on wood Tabasco works better and lingers longer--it sounds mean, but all they need is a sniff.) I love your photos. Coop looks like he's pondering what to investigate next!! Does he have strong herding tendancies?
Liza is 21 months old and still chews on upholstery, wood , plastic, and wicker when she wants to play and I am otherwise occupied. She's esp. naughty when I am on the computer. The smart little girl quickly learned that I'd give her a rawhide from an upper shelf when she began chewing ..she'd chew, I'd look at her, and she'd look at the rawhide bag on the shelf. So Smart! As a wee puppy she was a canine slinky, almost impossible to hang onto--and very bitey--not mean-- it just took her a while to learn to pull her punches and she still mouths.. The trainer we worked with (who maintains she trains people, not dogs) uses the Gentle Leader and her own dogs in class. The G/L. is a great tool!. Never have I had and loved a more interesting and entertaining dog! Now that she has mellowed a bit, she is even--often -very sweet :)
Small world isn't it? Sure wish I'd know about your cousins in Tuscola when I started my "Amos hunt" ! I ended up at a small kennel in northern Missouri and am happy with my boy - but it sure took a long time to find the perfect little annoying short dog... Your guys look darling - the perfect kids. Love your site and thanks for the welcome!
Thanks for commenting on my boys' names (Monroe and DiMaggio). My dad is a huge Marilyn Monroe fan and he suggested the name when we found out that one of the pups was "blond". "DiMggio just seemed the way to go with the other one's name.LOL
I am new at this. If I do anything wrong, be gentle with me. I talk about Barney all the time. People that don't have a Corgi just don't get it. I thought it would be good to talk with others that understand what a blessing it is to have a Corgi.
Your babies are adorable. I had never seen Corgi's here until I got Barney. He is just wonderful! My husband is disabled and I work. I feel much better leaving him home since Barney is there to keep him company. I miss them both so much during the day. I don't know who I am more excited to see when I get home. His little bunny butt is so cute!
Hi Lori, Thank you, your corgis are so cute, I'll have to get some pics up also. They are your heart and soul aren't they. And you have to have at least 2 so they can play. Manhattan is a small town. Between Frankfort and Kankakee. I to am excited to be part of this corgi website. Talk with you later.
Thank you! Oh boy, if my cousin were a breeder, I think I'd have a real problem...lol I love Corgi AND Aussies. If my husband didn't have alimit of two at a time, I'd be "that crazy dog lady down the street"...lol We are currently on the hunt for a second and would like to rescue this time. Maci cam e from a great breeder here in NJ.
