Profile Information

none - nomad at heart
About Me:
I'm a college graduate with a BA in English. I moved to North Carolina this past summer. I live with my boyfriend (who's attending Duke University), two abyssinian guinea pigs (Gimlet and Guinness), and my Pembroke Ofelia.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Ofelia (aka Oafie, Oafers, Oafish, Tasmanian Devil, or Dr. Goosepoop) is my tricolor PWC puppy. She's extremely independent, and she loves to herd my niece and nephews. She's also very loyal and takes pride in guarding the apartment. I'd like to start her in herding, to keep her busy and happy. She's a free-thinking dog, and I encourage that. We're making great progress lately with her obedience. I'm a first time dog owner, and I'm looking forward to the next ten plus years with Ofie.


Age: 1 year
Weight: 25 pounds
Color: tri with a red mask
Spayed?: Yes
other physical traits: natural bobtail
Diet: 2/3 cup of ProPlan adult twice a day; also likes bananas
Exercise: 2 daily walks; a jog here and there; loves trail hiking
Bad habits: eats rabbit and goose poop - won't touch dog poop though; loves to roll in dead worms and bird poop on the sidewalk; barks when the neighbors make too much noise
Funny habits: lets out little protest barks through a closed mouth when we tell her not to bark at things; looks at you as if you're the one in the way when you trip over her; moves away with a grunt if you sit on her foot
Quirks: slight allergy to our guinea pigs (seems to be subsiding, though); bites her paws; licks herself after coming in after every pee; tries to hide her bones in my pajama pants (while I'm wearing them); looks at us impatiently if we stay up too late
Best Friends: Duke (aw, she misses him) and Mack
I have:

Today's Ofelia's first birthday. I'll have to postpone the dog park trip until tomorrow because I have to go to work. She woke up really excited this morning. I guess she felt my excitement. It's a beautiful day today and I'm going to take her for extra walks. I think I'll email her breeder and send her a picture. I'll also be celebrating the first day Oafie and I met pretty soon, and then the first day I brought her home. Here's to many many more birthdays in good health and good spirits for… Continue

ofelia meets her nemesis

Posted on April 14, 2009 at 12:37am 2 Comments

This past Easter weekend I drove up with Ofélia and my boyfriend to visit my family, and to stay and my parents’ place for a couple of days. I knew that my mother was taking care of one of my sister’s 3 huskies because she was healing from a neck wound – she was attacked. This husky is a few months old and weighs about 40 pounds. She won’t get more than about ten pounds bigger as she’s a runt, but she’s large enough to overpower my 25-pound corgi.

Now I should have remembered that… Continue
