So Faye is almost 14 weeks and is the light of my life. When I get home she has a big smile waiting for me and tons of corgi kisses. I don't want to personify her too much but it makes me wonder... does that smile mean she's... happy? Do dogs feel emotions like happy and sad? I can't imagine that it's the same for them as it is for us but at the same time... it's a smile! Just something to wonder I guess.
So walking with Faye today she grabbed what looked like a caterpillar off the sidewalk. I immediately tried to get it from her but she swallowed it before I could. Right away she looked at me like "what did I do?" then started acting really uncomfortable and threw up her breakfast. Not to get too graphic but it was kinda frothy and gross. I brought her upstairs and gave her some water, she started acting better but still kept coughing and gagging a little.

I was at work for the beginning of it but my boyfriend said she jumped at the first one, then just went right along playing like nothing was wrong.

Hey everyone! I brought Faye home yesterday and she is awesome. We love her so much. She was so good last night, after putting her to bed I brought her outside once at about 4am and she peed right away. What a smart little girl! Here's a clip from the loooong ride home. She got so sick and was really not doing well at first but then she relaxed and wound up sleeping most of the rest of the ride. The clip is from right before she cuddled up in my lap and passed out… Continue
So I've been trying to think of a name for my little red and white pem girl... so far these are the names I've come up with...
Fae - This is my favorite so far. I read a welsh fairy tale about the origin of corgi's that said they were a gift from the fairies to humans. It's also the name of one of my favorite cowboy beebop characters (Faye Valentine). IchiKo - Meaning "first child" in Japanese. This is my first dog and I have no kids so I felt it was appropriate.
