North Platte is about 4.5 hours from us in the western part of the state. We live near Lincoln and Omaha on the eastern part of the state. Your husband probably drove on the interstate so he was pretty close to use when he went throught the eastern part of the state. What is the reason Audrey is moving to Denver...is she going to school? How far is Denver from you? We are about nine hours or so. I hate the empty nest! Could be why I have so many dogs! The offer is always on the table for you to stop and stay at our place on your way to visit Audrey. Poor Bazel, if its not one thing it is another. Are the torn ligaments from the Great Dane attack? Hard to believe Roscoe is three. He is just defying all the odds. Fergie turned three in June, but didn't get a pizza! Craig is still out of work and it is a stress at so many levels...Not sure how long this is going to go on. I'm not always handling the stress well. We see Sarah about every weekend...mostly at Softball games. She is looking forward to a weekend home with no games. Me too! Can't believe that we are almost through September. I went and bought a new orchid so I could prolong my "flower season" I have several orchids, but none are blooming so I got one full of buds! Makes me smile! Hope to see Emily soon. I hate to think I have to wait until Christmas. Darn these kids with their own lives! How is your dad?--take care--Kristen
Sorry about Penny. I think you are doing the right thing. I would think all the testing would do is stress her out. Comort and love is all any of us can ask for. Too bad I don't live closer. I would love to help you out and watch the dogs. Maybe you will be able to make a trip out later. If you need a place to stay half way you can always come to our house. Kids are funny. They want their independance, but then when our focus falls off them they have a hard time handling it. Sarah gives me a hard time about my Corgi obsession...but I think she understands...don't know how life would be without all that unconditional love...Fern must be a barker as well. She barks when ever she gets excited and that includes meal time. It is a bit of an annoying bark, but she is such a sweet girl otherwise. Poppit has started talking to me. She gets so excited when I get home she barks and then roos...Kinda cute...for now anyway. I'm with you a nice quiet weekend away would be wonderful.
OK not good to have Audrey break her ankle, but at least you get her home for a while! Must have been a bad break. When does she leave for Denver? So far away. Sarah is back at school and I miss having her home. My husband is still out of work I wish he wasn't home so much!
Poppit (new blind Corgi) is doing great. Doesn't run into too much--mostly the other dogs. Like you said it seems that they have an extra sense about those things. I still hold my breath when she is running with the dogs in the front yard. She has become my velcro dog and is developing her Corgi attitude. She still has a way to go on her people social skills. She is just afraid of new things and people. I might take her to Petsmart this weekend and see how she does out and about. She came from a rescue organization ( 7 Bells Sanctuary) in Missouri. It is too bad they don't have a way to neuter Roscoe without using a general anesthesia. I wonder if his aggression may be more from the steroids than his hormones...although a combination might make things worse. What kind of aggression? Roscoe seems to be an amazing little guy and has beaten the odds so far. It is interesting seeing him in his pictures holding his head so high. Poppit does that as well. I wonder if they do that so they don't bump their noses into things? You will have to post a picture of Bazel with his funky haircut. Glad the antihistimines are working out. did you find something other than Benadryl? How is Penny?
How is your dad doing do they have the blood pressure problem figure out? You certainly have your hands full! Take care. Maybe we will have an opportunity to meet in the future. Take care.--Kristen
Penny, sorry for such a a slow reply. did you find out if your dad could do the carotid stents? Thank goodness you had him move in with you! How is all of this affecting his Alzheimers? Hope Bazel is still on the road to recovery. Has any of the hair started growing back? Infection under control? Hopefully not still doing daily vet visits? You are spending way too much time in medical facilities...both human and pet. Hopefully this last week was completely uneventful. I am probably going to be looking to you for some advice. We just took in a little blind Corgi...not completely blind. She has juvinile cataracts and her vision is severely limited, she gets around well, but does scare easily. She hates the leash, but we are working on it. She and Roscoe would be great playmates. I feel like I am a crazy woman for taking in another dog, but she broke my heart. It is too bad we live so far apart we could have a lot to talk about over a pot of coffee!
Hi Penny! Good to hear from you. I did not get an email from you last week You might try my work email (email@example.com). How is your dad doing? Was it his heart again? Is he home? I think about you often and hope that all of this isn't putting too much stress on you. Keeping you in my prayers. How scary for Bazel to be mauled by a pack of great danes..I know how frightening it can be. Poor Audrey. When Basil was alive he had been mauled by a large dog. Puncture wounds on his neck and all the skin peeled back on one of his ears. I just felt so helpless when Basil was being shaken back and forth. I thought he was dead. I can't imagine what it would have been like with three such big dogs. Basil seemed unphased by all all of it in the long run. They are amazingly adaptable. I bought one of those inflatable cones for Fern after her surgery, but I got the wrong size and took it back. She didn't bother her stitches so I didn't get another, but even too big it was better than the cone. Poor Corgis are so short that they catch those plastic cones on everything. The inflatable was pretty expensive if I remember right, but if I needed one again i would buy it. I bought mine at PetSmart. Our golden/black lab cross Tess died on Monday night. We had her for 16 years...She passed quietly at home. Sad, but we were so lucky to have her for so long. Sorry to ramble on. Always good to hear from you.
Yeah we are doing good here. May 12th is the surgery day I will keep u updated. What food do you feed Roscoe? Is it special or anything? Koby was eating natural balance sweet potatoes and fish He loves it but his breath!!! ahhh I bought a tooth brush and have been brushing his teeth lol
How are things going? Koby is getting big! I am keeping busy here...I am sure you are as well. Koby is 4 months old now and in two weeks he is getting fixed! I hope he doesn't act strange afterward. My neighbor says her dog is acting funny since surgery...
Penny, how are you!? It has been a while. I don't get on MyCorgi all that often. Work is too busy...I need a life change! I've been thnking about you as I watch my spring bulbs popping out of the ground! Emily has decided to go back to school...yay...lets hope it sticks! Sarah was home over the Easter Break...it was hard having her head back today. I stayed home from work so we could hang out. How is your dad doing? The dogs are all foing well.How are Roscoe, Penny and Bazel? I know how busy you must be, but I hope that you will be able to spend time in the garden soon. When is the wedding? Take care.--Kristen
Hey thats how I make it on those tough days too! You just gotta laugh. I am keeping my fingers crossed its been a week since I have had a present left for me..if you know what I mean:) I am so excited this saturday there is a corgi roundup!
Hey I know what you mean. We live on a dirt road too and it gets really muddy sometimes. I have taken Koby for a couple walks but until he has his final set of shots I am limiting it. How little Roscoe?We are still having trouble potty training but he isnt doing too bad! He leaves presents for me now and then if you know what I mean.
I'm so glad to hear from you. It is cold here, ice and snow flurries. Puppies are all doing well, taking them to a fundraiser--wine tasting called a Whine Social--taste wine and bring your dog! First non-work related event I've been to in a long time! I don't hear from Emily (my oldest in FL) more than once a week--that frustrates me. Sarah is playing in a softball tournament this week in Florida and she is having a great time. I'm glad to hear that your dad is doing well. The dogs are great brain stimulation! Seems like we met about this time last year...pining for warm weather to get out in the garden. I am at the stage right now. Constant stream of muddy paws through my kitchen! Wouldn't trade it away though. Take care!
It's been a while - hope all is well with Roscoe - We have been greatly enjoying the sunny weather here in northern california - but the rains have come - i suppose we need it since they're calling for major drought - hope our well holds. Anyway, just wanted to check in and see how the little guy was doing - take care - Donna & Bella
Thanks so much! I am sorry about your dad I will keep you in my prayers. My grandmother has 1st stage of alzheimers and it is hard to take! She is still remembering a lot though. Little Koby is a boy and I will be getting him in Feb. I will try to send a picture.
Penny, haven't heard from you in a while. I hope all is going well and the furkids and non-furkids are all well. We had an inch of snow today and it is still coming down. I hope to get out of the office in just a couple of minutes.
I wanted to ask you what dog food you recommend? I use science diet for the cats and I think it is pretty good food so I was thinking of using it for the new puppy when I get him. The breeder says sometime after feb 4th we can pick him up! I can't wait! I hope he can learn some of Riley's tricks but I know they will never be the same.
