Short legs in the very tall trees - The Redwood Country Corgi

Profile Information

Fortuna, California
About Me:
I'm a hard working single mom of one Pembroke, Timmy. : ) Obviously I have quite a sense of humor, (being a corgi lover).

I'm retired from public service, and work part time at what ever other jobs I can find to support, "The True Prince of Wales".

I own a small home located in a small rural community on the far northern California coast; far from the maddening crowds and 4-5 hours from civilization. Surrounded by very tall trees, redwoods, I love being in the outdoors and "roughing" it.

I'm much wiser than Timmy thinks I am.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
What can I say? Words escape and run in figure eights around the various items of furniture in the living room. Timmy is the "True Prince of Wales". He's very concerned with his looks, since he's very oversized (structured more like a cardigan). Very physically fit!! works out daily, in home, on the road or track, at the park chasing balls and once a week by a pet walker. Timmy doesn't walk, he struts, honest. When he meets another dog, he puffs up and makes sure the dog knows he's buff. It cracks me up!!! Timmy says to check out his dogster page at He's also a junior reporter for our small local paper, Humboldt Beacon, writing stories on dog care, pet issues and news. So he's probably busier than I am!!!

Timmy got his CGC in 2005, he also got his certification from Delta Society as a therapy dog qualified in complex areas. He's started in agility and this year we are going to try rally obedience by attending some local classes.

Saw this in the SF Chronicle yesterday.  Our new Lt. Governor, Gavin Newsom was the mayor of San Francisco.  It seems the Governor was looking for a dog walker and....................



"A Gathering of Corgis"

Posted on April 28, 2010 at 9:30pm 1 Comment

Hey everyone I wanted to let you know about a new book that a friend of mine put together. Her name is Ginnie Mickelson and she completed this photo essay for a Photo Journalism class. The photos were taken by Ginnie and another photographer identified in the credits at a dog park in the San Jose, CA area where my friend lives. She is donating all profits from the bood to Corgi Aid. The preview pictures don't do the real images justice. I recently got a copy and the pictures are absolutely…


Butch the Corgi Detective

Hey everyone, thought I'd pass along this link to a story of a brave corgi named Butch. If the thief is apprehended, I think Butch should get a reward, don't you????

Corgi Aid - 10th Anniversary

Posted on January 21, 2010 at 6:26pm 3 Comments

Today is the 10th Anniversary of Corgi Aid. That's 10 years of helping corgis (both breeds) and mixes get healthy and find their furever homes. I know that several members of MyCorgi have gotten their furry friends through corgi rescue and perhaps even gotten aid through Corgi Aid. Please stop by Corgi Aid's site today and see all the dogs that have been helped and their stories. And if you have a few extra dollars perhaps make a contribution to helping corgis in the… Continue

Musings of "An Old Woman, Learning and Timmy the Corgi"

Posted on July 23, 2008 at 7:19pm 8 Comments

For starters, I've made more mistakes in training my dogs than I care to recount, you have time to read or MyCorgi has space for! LOL I’m not a spring chicken as you can guess and quality of life becomes more precious to me with each passing day. Now you know where I'm coming from. What’s that got to do with training, you ask?

Well, Timmy is the first corgi I've owned, that’s what! In my former life I raised and obedience trained German Shepherd Dogs (GSD’s). My shepherds were… Continue

UNCLE TIMMY!! Please ask your mom to check your gmail email. Mom sent a reply to your comments on our blog and we hope you got them. Loved hearing from you :)

Woo hoo. Ricky-Rafa got his stitches off today and as long as he's not giving the area too much attention (he isn't) he doesn't need to use the collar. So far so good. We'll put it on when we leave him alone. He goes back for xrays in a month. Til then two 10 min. walks a day––nor jumping or running. So we'll have to keep him on a lead when he's not in his xpen. He's getting used to the routine. Depending on the xrays, he may not need physical therapy. The surgeon said that with this surgery PT usually isn't needed.

Did you have another Corgi or dog during Timmy's recovery. I think it would be so much easier to restrict Ricky if he didn't have Lucy egging him on. I also have a husband who can be a bit reckless (maybe too strong a word). Let's say he's not as cautious as I am. But, I want to do whatever I can to avoid this again. I don't know how it happened. Any info you can share to help me prevent a future ACL injury down the line will be so greatly appreciated. Tried to friend you, but mycorgi was slow, and i wanted to get this message to you, while I have RR happily eating a kong w/o his cone, so i get some time to type w/o looking at him every second. Today the stitches must be tighter, and he's more interested in them now. Earlier he wasn't. So he's had to wear the cone pretty much 24/7. he's been whining and staring at me all day, til the kong.

Do you remember if the cone of shame needed to be worn after the stitches/ staples were removed. I suspect that the better he feels, the more difficult it will be to contain him from his 2-yr old corgi exuberance, and his sister aiding & abetting full-on FRAP.

Glad to hear that Timmy did so well. Ricky will be 2 wks. tomorrow and the stitches are going to be removed. I'm terrified of his needing this down the road in his other leg.
